Simple additions like a wind chime or the colour of your door can balance the chi in your environment
The art of feng shui is all about creating a right balance and restoring the energy flow in a living
environment or workplace.
The creative design of a home or office is not just sufficient to enhance the possibilities of achieving success in our lives, as most often the most decorated and beautiful space could be the cause of many obstacles in our lives in terms of afflictions and depleted energies.
Synchronicity in design
Every home and the occupants within are unique in terms of their lifestyle, use of the space and design; hence energy of a space is exclusive to it and cannot be similar even if it is a duplex home or a twin home design. Therefore, the fundamental principle of feng shui design is to create the right synchronicity between the building and the occupants. It also empowers the occupants in their actions and thoughts and strengthens the aura of the individual. The aura is the ‘invisible’ light that surrounds every creature. The intensity of this light reflects the concentration of the person’s own inherent energy levels. The more yang you are as a person, the more powerful your aura will be. The more powerful your aura is, the more you will be able to attract people into your life — people who love you and are drawn to you. Your aura reflects your own magnetism, your personal power. By seeing yourself this way, you will begin to see others in the same light. You will develop a love for others in the same unconditional way.
The use of feng shui adds a powerful dimension to the creation of the magnetic and attractive personality, it can both activate and energise your own inherent chi. Feng shui can bring about an environment that is saturated with an air of auspicious energies. When feng shui is adapted correctly, it will magnify your personal power, so considerably and strongly, that it will enhance your special magnetism. When we create active yang energy in the environment, the space becomes attractive and auspicious.
Door to progress
Empowering your main door if in the cardinal directions enhances the chi of the house:
• If your main door faces South, you could paint it a deep maroon red or maybe shades of vermillion red or as a colour splash, to activate the South sector which is filled with yang energy.
• If your main door faces North, suspending six rods of a metal wind chime and the tinkling of the chimes will activate your social life, as the metal chime strengthens the element water represented by North.
• If your main door faces East, placing a single urn filled with water to the left of the door from the inside, will aid this direction.
• If your main door faces West or Northwest, ceramic or terracotta near the door will strengthen this direction as in the productive cycle of elements (earth produces metal element which represents West and Northwest).
Creating the right environment and frame of mind ensures that feng shui gets activated faster.
