As postulated in Feng Shui analysis, the luck of the individual is said to change annually along with the luck of the premises as energy keeps changing constantly. To balance the flow of energy and restore the equilibrium traditionally, Feng Shui recommends clearing of clutter and checking your place of dwelling or office for afflictions and carrying out the fine tuning and corrections.
This aspect of Feng Shui is known as countering the “annual afflictions” and this could be anything from realigning the furniture to relocating the Feng Shui symbolisms.
Feng Shui has been used in the home to improve such things as wealth and careers, find new partners, start families, help children to study, improve family harmony and later in life to support and improve our health so that we can enjoy the wealth which we have accumulated over the years. In short, Feng Shui at home can be used to influence just about every aspect of our lives.
By relating to the spiritual dimension, Feng Shui becomes more relevant to our modern day life. With our demanding, high-pressure lifestyles today, we need ways with which we can enhance and bring in some much needed balance to our lives.
In addition to removing obstacles, Feng Shui involves the accumulation or introduction of positive energy. When certain items are placed properly, they draw in the good energy that contributes to prosperity. From positive motivating objects and symbols of wealth, to coins and family photos, a variety of objects can play a role in manufacturing the right type of energy in your home.
Prosperity and abundance circulates through the universe and through all our lives. It is a never-ending flow of giving and receiving. Many associate prosperity with financial wealth but true riches are of many kinds. Along with material wealth, there is also love, friendships, family, health, knowledge and spiritual wealth which is essential in our lives.
A home or business has interior factors and exterior factors that influence you and your mood. Shape of the house, floor plan, positions of bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, desks, have an unseen psychological effect on you. History of the house, electro-magnetic energies emitted by electrical connections and cable, telephone, satellite dishes can have either positive or negative effects on you depending upon the sort of person you are. Similarly, beams, lights, plants, water and influences of people surrounding you also have some role to play.
• Living areas require a bit of life and light, so keep within the colour spectrum of yellow or beige tones. Yellows and light browns offer a sense of earth tones, which usually match most furniture styles.
• Lights bring a vital source of energy and is the key element to setting the mood of any space. Depending on what you are trying to achieve, lights can help highlight or tone down certain areas of the room. Fluorescent lighting helps flood the room with an ambient feel.
• Avoid barriers in front of the door such as light partitions where you have to navigate around them to move to the next space. By ‘opening up’ the space, this technique immediately expands your front door sector many times over.
