There are phases in our lives when we go through hard times with friends and relationships too. All of a sudden if you face a situation where in the best friends are not the same with you anymore and your relationship with your loved ones has gone bad, it’s time to look around your place of dwelling from the Feng Shui perspective. The inner energy centre of the home can be strengthened which has a direct connect with the family and friends to have a positive shift in our lives.
The ancient Feng Shui science emphasises on certain parts of the home that corresponded to key areas of the lives of its occupants. By working with these energy centres, you could first identify what was going on in that area of your life, and second, enhance it by putting objects there that would encourage the Chi (energy) to become activated.
The trigram connected to the family area of the I Ching is called Chien. Family is defined as anyone that you consider your family, whether they are your blood relations or family of choice. It is connected to the wood element represented by a tree that has roots going deep into the earth creating stability and strength. It is about the protection of ancestors, and retaining inner stability when chaos happens around us. It deals with the healing of relationships and broken circles in the family or family of choice.
If you are experiencing the loss or stress of a strained relationship with a close friend or family member(s), or if you don’t have close friends and family for whatever reason, working with the Feng Shui in your home can help change this.
The first step is to locate where this energy centre falls in your living space. Once you locate the family energy centre, here are some enhancements to add that will help shift the energy in a positive way and recharge this area of your home. Since Feng Shui works with healing the outer environment, which then heals the inner environment, don’t be surprised if healing begins to take place!
It’s a fact that no relationship is beyond healing and, if we have lost loved ones we can manifest new friends into our lives. No one is replaceable, but we can still forge close friendships that will fill our hearts and lives again.
As always, start with the idea of making room for new things to happen and make sure the area is free of clutter.
Carry out the following to restore broken friendship and relationships:
• Create a collage of happy pictures or even use regular picture in a single frame of yourself and that of the person with whom you are having difficult times. Place a healthy plant by the side of the picture or even vibrant flowers and plants, add plenty of wood element based artefacts around.
• Display gifts, personal mementos and pictures that are symbolic of vibrant good health or positive family relationships or those given by the friend near the above set up.
• Write down a positive affirmation in present tense about your ideal relationship with the person you wish to normalise relationship, place it in a metal box close to the above set up and ensure you are able to see the affirmations daily.
