Today, we live in a fast paced and stressful world where everything seems to be urgent. The everyday environments that we live and work in impact our attitudes, health, wealth, relationships, and vitality in both positive and negative manners. When we are in harmonious environments, our energy can flow in a positive way through our being or through the environment. We can control the way our environments affect us by tuning into our emotions to understand how we feel in our homes, places of work, or even with the people we are around.
By incorporating Feng Shui principles into our day-to-day life, we can help energy to flow in a more harmonious manner in these environments. The use of Feng Shui isn’t a religion or even a mystery; it is the feeling of “chi”, the life force energy that is in all things. We all use Feng Shui principles many times in our lives without knowing it simply by following our intuition and feelings. When we walk into a space and say things like, “I like the way this feels” or “I don’t like the feeling here”; we are using Feng Shui.
How many times have you moved a piece of office furniture only to move it back where it was before on your office desk because it didn’t “feel good” in its new place? Selecting colors that make you feel happy or calm is a common Feng Shui practice in office environments. Our parents and grandparents used a basic principle of Feng Shui every spring when they would clean the house; opening the windows, cleaning the rugs, curtains and windows to renew the positive energy in the home.
By clearing the clutter, organizing our spaces in which we spend our time or just bringing in some fresh air, we can revive the positive energy in our environments. So take a few minutes this week and change out some colors in your office cubicle and try moving things around in your office design. Also, clean and organize your home or car. You’ll be amazed by how great you feel!
