Remove Stress From your Life With Feng Shui

For over three centuries, the Chinese people have found in Feng Shui the source for of internal and external balance and harmony. We all are searching for a little harmony in our life. Today’s fast-paced life assails all our senses with demands and expectations. Stress, anxiety and tension accumulate as the ongoing demands of work and family, home and free time push us to the very brink. Pushed and pulled by the equally demanding expectations of boss and family. Driven to the end of our rope by the increasing demands of life, the bills and everyday battles we push our own hopes and dreams into the background. Everyday, another e-mail, phone call or traffic jam, pushes us to the limit. In this environment, energy is fast depleted and tension dramatically increased. How to escape this self-perpetuating treadmill? Turn your home into a peaceful sanctuary by utilizing the techniques of Feng Shui.

The concept behind Feng Shui is to harness positive energy. Using the guiding principles, you can identify the difficulties within your physical environment and remove them. While, this may appear to be another project, consider the short and long term benefits. Feng Shui, once learned and applied will provide you with relief from stress increase your personal energy levels and help you to improve your overall sense of well-being. Time learning the correct implementation of the principles of Feng Shui is time well spent.

A life in which energy is unfocused, prevented by the stress of the environment, a life in which all efforts seem wasted, is a life unbalanced, a life without Feng Shui. The accumulation of ongoing stress will, eventually, manifest itself in the physical body. Stress releases specific hormones ion the body. An overabundance of cortisol and adrenaline can contribute to heart disease and other chronic illnesses. The immune system, too, becomes affected, increasing the incidences of colds and flus.

To avoid such possible problems, rest is traditionally prescribed. The ability of sleep to improve your energy levels is magnified- truly heightened, when Feng Shui is employed. Feng Shui will show you how to correctly align your bedroom to obtain the maximum amount of good. It will guide you in the placement of your bed and council you on what accessories are required to reduce stress and increase energy.

The principles of Feng Shui are predicated on obtaining the maximum positive energy. It acts to counteract the negative impact of daily and repetitive stress and anxiety. These negative forces sap the life energy from you. feng shui operates to restore your energy, reduce your stress levels and create a positive environment by showing you how to arrange your physical environment to facilitate the flow of Chi energy. Learning how to place objects and arrange your spatial environment to manifest optimum positive energy flow, will help you in all aspects of your life. A Feng Shui designed home will ensure you are provided with the positive energy and harmonious balance you require to not merely live, but thrive in today’s world.



Using a Feng Shui Fish Tank to Attract Wealth and Abundance

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese practice of achieving harmony with the specific placement of certain objects in your home or office, which affects the flow of energy in your surroundings, the Chi (Qi), and this can be positive or negative. Obtaining luck, health and prosperity is usually the main focus of using Feng Shui. My own theory is that Feng Shui creates such harmony in your surroundings, that everything that you look at gives you a feeling of well being. If you look at a broken TV screen or that radio that’s been sitting there for the last 2 years, you will not feel good, right? feng shui cures are used whenever some area of our lives is not going as well as it should, like Romance, Family, Health, Wealth, etc.

Now, what does this have to do with your fish tank? Well, having a fish tank or aquarium can help increase positive Chi in your life. When you are thinking of using a Feng Shui Fish tank, they usually tell you that you should have 8 goldfish (since gold symbolizes wealth and luck) and 1 black fish (to absorb any bad luck), however, I believe that just having a nice, clean fish tank with a good balance of all the elements is enough… and maybe using a lucky number of fish: 3, 5, 7, 9, 11….

Aquariums are auspicious because they present a harmonious combination of wealth attracting Feng Shui factors, and a perfect balance of all 5 Feng Shui elements:

Feng Shui Water element (the water in the aquarium) Feng Shui Wood Element (the plants in the aquarium) Feng Shui Metal element (use some white and gray rocks in the fish tank, or a round aquarium) Feng Shui Earth element (the rocks and gravel at the bottom of the fish tank) Feng Shui Fire element (gold /yellow, orange and red colors of the fish, as well as the aquarium light)

The best area to place your Feng Shui aquarium is in the Southeast (the Feng Shui Wealth and Abundance area) followed by North (Career) or East (Health and Family.)

Don’t place an aquarium in the bedroom or the kitchen. These are the two places where a fish tank can stimulate the Chi too much, making you eat in excess and sleep restlessly. In order to get a good flow of Chi, your tank has to be clean and well taken care off, with happy and healthy fish. A dirty tank and sick fish can emit bad chi and it will do more harm than good. You can use real plants with almost all kinds of fish; just keep them healthy and beautiful. I do not recommend them with Goldfish because they eat them, so you can use plastic plants. It’s the appearance that counts. They have to be clean and pretty.

Remember what I told you about looking at things that make you feel good? Using a Feng Shui Fish tank will always give you a good feeling.

Give it a try. Sometimes just believing that things will change, changes them. But with a feng shui fish tank, I can tell you from my own experience, you will be surprised and shocked by the changes you will feel almost immediately.

How to Use Feng Shui to Attract Love

Feng Shui can be used to improve any aspect of your life, including your love life. There are different Feng Shui arrangements that can be used to improve your relationships. Here you will find the basic ways to bring good energy into your love life according to Feng Shui practitioners. Now, if you are like some of my single girlfriends that say, “I am not looking for a relationship right now”, you have to know that Feng Shui helps you relationships in general: with friends, colleagues, partners, etc. So, keep reading.

Attracting Romance to Your Life

If you would like to bring luck into your love life, Feng Shui gives you a number of “cures” that you can use. The objects that you surround yourself with will make a big difference in your relationships.

The most important Feng Shui tip to improve your love life and your life all around, is to rid your home (especially your bedroom) of clutter. Unnecessary clutter will have a negative impact on your life and so you should start by getting rid of everything that is taking up space. Keep drawers tidy, pick clothing up from the floor and do not just leave things lying everywhere. Remember that a cluttered home leads to a cluttered mind. To be able to accept love into your life you need to have a clear head and be happy in your surroundings. Keep everything as organized as possible to make yourself more receptive. Don’t keep anything under the bed. Allow the energy to flow freely around it.

Your bedroom needs to be a romantic place, so the last images you want to see here are photos of Mom and Dad. Children’s artwork and toys will also undermine your sex life. Celebrate these relationships in other areas of your home and keep the bedroom as your private retreat.

Keep the television out of the bedroom. Nothing kills romance like late night television. If you have trouble falling asleep, try reading love poetry or romantic novels. Your subconscious will shift accordingly, making you a virtual love magnet. The same goes for exercise equipment and computers.

If you are a single woman, or man, make your bedroom look like you are sharing it with someone. This can mean putting a bedside table on the other side of the bed, or even putting an extra tooth brush in the bathroom. Girls, don’t put your collection of stuffed animals on the bed. This is a big turn off and a no no in Feng Shui.

That old pillow from college and those flannel sheets aren’t doing your love life any favors. So splurge on pillows, blankets and sheets that invite you to linger in bed.

Open the windows often to keep the air fresh.You cannot have good Feng Shui in your bedroom if the air is stale and polluted. However, plants in the bedroom are not good Feng Shui, unless your bedroom is fairly large and they are located far from the bed. Aquariums and fountains will also disturb your sleep. And contrary to popular belief, mirrors in the ceiling are the worst thing you can do in Feng Shui!!! No, seriously, no mirrors in the bedroom. They energize the room too much to give you a relaxing sleep.

Try to use objects of colors related to the Relationships Area of your bedroom: white, pinks, reds… You should surround yourself with positive images. If you have pictures, sculptures or paintings of people on their own, they could be having a negative effect on your relationships. Replace them with pictures of happy couples. Always put two flowers, two figurines, two candles, etc. This will make you a little more receptive to love when it comes into your life. Try not to have set ups of single chairs, create cozy seating arrangements for two.

Never use dried flowers in your home, especially in the bedroom. They have a negative impact on your life. Fresh flowers on the other hand, are perfect and they look really good too. Candles are also perfect to brighten up the bedroom. Actually, candle light is the best kind of lighting you can have in there. As this is not always possible, use a dimmer to control the light in the bedroom.

Now see what room falls in the far right corner of your house. This is the Relationships Area of the home. If there’s a bathroom there, always… always keep the toilet lid down. Drains and toilets are escape routes for energy, and in this case, it can flush your love life down the drain.

Feng Shui is designed to help you to draw in good luck in all aspects of your life. With romance, the idea is to entice romance: keep things in pairs, use romantic colors, and be more receptive to love. Do not surround yourself with lone figures and fill your bedroom with candles and luxury bedding. If you follow these tips, then you will be well on your way to attracting your perfect partner.
