Feng Shui Enhancements for Energizing Good Health

It is a known fact that keeping in good health requires eating well, getting enough rest, exercise and adopting a peaceful lifestyle.

But sometimes accidents, and unexpected illnesses still show up in our lives. Following your doctor’s orders is important, at the same time applying some easy Feng Shui enhancements to energize the Health Area of your home can also help in healing and warding off illnesses.

Believe it or not, the energy in your home can help you achieve good health. The Health/ Family/Friends area is located in the middle left side of your home or office and is particularly associated with “strength.”

In the Feng Shui Bagua (Ba-gua) Map, represented as a grid of nine sectors, with the center for grounding, the Health/Family/Friends area operates under the premise that it is important to cultivate strong physical health, and loving friend and family relationships to act as supportive foundations through the periodic “shocks” and unforeseen “storms” of life. The Bagua comes from the Chinese philosophy, “The I Ching,” In the” I Ching” the Health, Family and Friends area of your home or business is called “Shocking Thunder” as it refers to the unexpected shocks or sudden unforeseen problems that can cycle through our lives like stormy weather. Good health and relationships with our family and friends assure as much as possible that we will persevere through the bad times of life.  

In Feng Shui flowers represent good health. When health issues arise for you,  or loved ones, an easy Feng Shui enhancement is to place vibrant flowers in the Health area of your home (in each story, if you have a multilevel home), near a picture of you or your loved one in a happy, healthy state. and write or state an affirmation related to the outcome you want to achieve.  

                                                                upstairs enhancement

For instance, when I was asked to return for more follow up tests after a routine mammogram, I placed fresh flowers our Health areas, upstairs and down, near a happy, active pictures of myself and wrote, “The mammogram was negative, no further tests required. I am healthy and thriving.”  That is exactly what happened! I could not be happier.

Let Feng Shui help you navigate through health issues and lead you to achieving your health goals.

Planning a Trip - Feng Shui Can Help Make it Happen

Things are opening up and people are happily making travel plans. Where are you going this summer? Are you dreaming of exotic faraway places, fun family vacations, or even peaceful retreats? How do you get there? How do you make it happen?

Feng Shui can help you achieve your travel goals. Just as in every other facet of life, achievement follows intention, visualization, and affirmations. “Picture it and it will happen...”  Positive affirmation, enhancements and vision boards in the Helpful People/Travel area play a large role. You achieve your goals when you focus clearly on what you want to accomplish and then take action accordingly.

In the Feng Shui  Bagua (Ba-gua) Map, represented  as a grid of nine sectors, the Helpful People and Travel  area is located in the front right corner  of your home/office/business. The Bagua comes from the Chinese philosophy, “The I Ching,” and literally means “eight trigrams, with the Center being for grounding.” In the “I Ching” the Helpful People/Travel area of your home or business is associated with the qualities of synchronicity, support and travel. 

 Enhancements for Helpful People and Travel area in your home or business:    

Art, photos, collages or figures pertaining to spiritual guides, and/or mentors or helpful people             

Special places where you have traveled or want to travel  (Create a Vision Board – see below)          

Items in colors of white, black or grey    and items made of metal                                                             

Quotes, affirmations and sayings pertaining to Helpful People and Travel

A Missing Helpful People and Travel Area:

If your Helpful People and Travel area is missing from your floor plan, you can anchor the area by doing one or a combination of the following cures:  Anchor the missing area structurally using the metal element wherever possible, such as building a trellis or deck, planting flowers in a flower garden or planter boxes in white, adding a large stone statue of a spiritual guide or placing a large rock on the corner, or a metal seating area. (This could be a beautiful meditation area).  If the area outside is not accessible, you can symbolically anchor from the inside by hanging a 30 mm round faceted crystal, placing a mirror, and/or  your  travel pictures or vision board on the inside wall by the missing area.

Creating a Vision Board for Travel:

A vision, or a dream board, is an excellent way to focus your energy and display your goals.  If your focus is on travel, you will create a board that will reflect places you want to go. Make a collage of pictures, words and phrases that reflect where you want to be and how you want to feel when you get there.  Put pictures of yourself in the scenario; act as if you’re already there.   

Travel Feng Shui Kit:

Through your visualizing and affirmations, you have now arrived at your destination; but sometimes we don’t have the opportunity to book the perfect room. Whatever the reason, it is smart to travel with a small Feng Shui Kit. You can put one together by selecting small, lightweight items that boost, balance and circulate the Ch’i in any environment. For example, use a jewelry bag containing 4 round faceted crystals on strings, 4 small angels made of thick paper, 4 tea lights in their own metal cups, cleansing incense such as pine or sandalwood. When used, these items can transform a room from grim to agreeable. Also include all the necessary items such as thumb tacks, safety pins, matches, string. Also include a multicolored scarf representing the colors of the five elements (white, black, green or blue, yellow and red hues). Using the Bagua, start at the front entrance to the room and place one crystal in front of a window, and place angels in the Health, Wealth and Love areas. If the room feels especially stagnant, hang a crystal in the center of the room.  Set up a place of beauty in the area where you would see as you wake up; use a 5 element cloth, incense, candles, angels and fresh flowers when available. Choose items that are light and  travel well.
