You don’t have to be a Feng Shui expert to know how a place makes you feel. Think of a time when you went into a place that felt welcoming, comfortable, and relaxing. As the space nourished you, your body began to unwind and relax. The space allowed you to sink into it and let go. You probably felt like you could stay there for hours.
You also know when a place is “off.” You walk into a place and immediately feel anxious, on guard, or overwhelmed. As the space drained your energy, your body became stressed, increasing your anxiety. All you could think about was, “I have to get out of here.”
Feng Shui studies your environment and how it affects your body, mind, and spirit. Feng Shui helps you identify the design details in your space that make you feel confident, relaxed, anxious, and irritated. When you put Feng Shui principles into action, you create an environment that supports what you desire.
“We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us” ~Winston Churchill
Did you know your environment tells a story about you? From the colors you choose to the shape of your floor plan. Something is being communicated energetically about you, your well-being, and your success. Your environment reflects what is going on inside you. We choose spaces that match our current state of mind. As we grow and change, we make changes in our spaces that show the changes within our inner selves.
Here is an example of choices and how this principle works. I have a client who spends a lot of time alone, does not like to go out much, and does not like to have people come to her house. She chose to live in a cottage far behind the main house. Her seclusion behind the home is an example of her inner seclusion. She was happy with her quiet lifestyle. One day she decided she wanted a relationship. Finding a relationship will require her to be more visible—a challenge for someone who has created a life of seclusion. The good news is that she does not have to move to a more visible house. She can use Feng Shui principles to support her desire to create a new relationship.
Look around your environment. What is your space telling about you? Your health and well-being depend on it.
