Many a times we come to cross roads in our life and we have to decide on many critical aspects to move ahead. Fengshui could help us tide over such situations however; one needs to have persistence and determination. You can pass it off as a superstitious belief system and wonder how little chimes, bells, fountains can change all that has gone wrong. The fact is that Fengshui creates the right harmony, frame of mind and makes you tap into your inner potential to unlock the hidden strength within you and find the right solution from the universal energy.
A structure contributes towards the prosperity of its occupants and most importantly, everything that happens in nature has a direct effect on the life of human. The cosmic rays from the sun, moon and other planets also have an effect on human body and research has shown that we respond and react accordingly. It was also found by the ancients that time period changes through the day had an effect on the human mind and body which in turn stimulated a corresponding activity. It was observed that Houses that were not properly aligned or had no sense of orientation, gave rise to restlessness, misfortune, and sickness.
According to Feng Shui philosophy, chi is influenced by everything concrete in our lives. Our possessions and where they are located can all affect chi energy. Even the layout of our homes and offices affects chi energy. By adding and taking away objects, changing the positioning of furniture, plants, wall art, and more, we can increase our good luck.
Fengshui analysis for a property is unique to that specific space and it is said that all buildings will have specific good and bad sectors. Vaastu or Feng Shui analysis is an art of aligning the space, countering the ill effects of bad sectors and finally enhancing the good sectors of the home or office. The approach to such corrections could be through repairs, renovation, re-decoration or adding or taking off objects. The cures in Fengshui could be as simple as a bowl of plain water to lighting and color effects and the type of correction would depend upon the sector of the building and its use too.
One of the major requirements to bring in a lease of new life and fresh energy into your home or office is extensive cleansing and re-organizing things. Discarding things not being used, re-furnishing and re-painting are an essential part of the traditional Feng Shui beliefs.
Look around the main door, is it looking fresh and drawing a positive feel and good Chi energy is your lobby, foyer or verandah looking clean, inviting and unblocked or is it chaotic. Chaos at the entry will for sure bring in the same kind of energy and feel in your life.
Check your kitchen and bathroom are these two places looking ok or do they smell bad and look bad. Kitchen is all about nourishing and the ability to sustain yourself and the bathroom is all about learning to take care of yourself and the ability to let go, and both are important for your well being at all levels
These basic checks can make your thought process more clear to avoid the feeling of being at cross roads and aid you in finding meaningful solutions to move ahead.
