Begin to See Your Home Through Feng Shui Eyes: Your Home Can Support and Nourish Your Life June 17, 2014
Your home is more than a structure where you sleep, eat and spend time with family and friends. The building itself, the placement of furniture and doors, your belongings and any unseen energetic presence, all have an effect on the quality of your life experience. Your living space affects the nourishment you receive through food, air and water, your relationships, sleep, health and prosperity. Home has the ability to support you to thrive and live a life that nourishes your spirit. It can also create stress, contribute to poor health and hold you back in patterns you may be trying to change.
Try this process for yourself:
- Do something to quiet your mind and open your heart (like meditation, dancing or spend time outside connecting to nature).
- Then approach your home from the street. What is your first impression? How does the view of your home make you feel? Does it uplift you or bring you down? Does your body relax with a comforting feeling of home or do you tense up? Then go through each room and observe with out judgment. Notice your impressions, your emotions and the sensations in your body.
- Ask your home/room/heart, “What small change can I make to shift the energy of this space to bring support and nourishment to my life?” The answer could be as simple as moving a piece of furniture, removing clutter, adding a colorful shawl to a couch, adding a light or opening the windows to let the air and sun shine in!
