My dearest Feng Shui Fans!
As a Feng Shui practitioner and certified Red Ribbon Consultant, I often get this question from different people when they find out about my passion for Feng Shui, “When should I start Feng Shui?”. This is a great question which only YOU can answer and determine for yourself.
First, let me describe Feng Shui for those who are just learning this amazing art & science. Feng Shui is pronounced “fung schway” and translates as ‘wind and water’. It is an ancient Chinese belief that the way your house is built or the way that you arrange objects in your environment affects your success, health, and happiness. The foundational concept of Feng Shui is that everything in our environment has an energy called “Chi.” This practice can help you make sure that your energy flow is in check, so that everything in your environment supports your well-being, health, fortune, harmonious relationships, and happiness.
In my experience, people are always naturally curious about everything. This is especially true when they’ve heard it from their network of friends, family or colleagues or when they read about it. Feng Shui is not required. It’s a personal choice to enrich your life by understanding the energy surrounding you and how you can control this space for a happier and fulfilled life. Embarking in the journey to “Uncover Your Path to Feng Shui” requires a lot patience, learning, curiosity and change management. If you would like to uncover more, visit my website at www.fengshuiroots.com and uncover the Feng Shui services I proud to my Feng Shui fans.
As you start to uncover Feng Shui, you may learn and get recommendations which you don’t like or simply are not comfortable with. In my opinion, I highly suggest you to think long term and the outcome you are looking to achieve in your life, career, family, etc. The process of Feng Shui is about understanding who you are, the energy surrounding you and how to apply ancient Chinese recommendations in today’s world. For some, it’s about decluttering so that they are more organized as this will ultimately increase their productivity. For others, it’s about increasing the positive energy or space for abundance at a higher level or making simple changes to remove the toxic or stagnant energy in your life. Bottom line, it’s all about energy flow which is called Chi.
What is Chi? Chi is our spirit. Chi is luck; it underlines all these things and more. Chi is the nourishing force of the heart, growth, and development of the heavens, earth, and humanity; it is also called life breath. Most importantly, Chi moves. Chi accumulates, dispenses, expands, and condenses. It moves fast, slow, in and out, up and down. Chi meanders and spirals. It flows along straight, angular, and curved pathways.
If you are looking for immediate payoff, it may happen, or it may not because Feng Shui is not just about getting rich! If you are looking for creating a lifestyle shift or starting to make some real changes in your life and environment, then educate yourself about Feng Shui and join me in taking you for a fun and exciting adventure.
