Feng shui is one of the easiest disciplines
that we can use to promote good health for ourselves.
We can get into a routine of using it without
even really having to think about it about it if we understand what Fung
Shui actually means, If we look at the basic meaning of feng shui it is
to allow good energy or ‘chi’ to flow in and around our bodies and lives
From first thing in the morning, before you
even get out of bed, trying to practise a few basic simple rules of fung
shui to help make the day easier, and to help you to keep healthy!
When you first wake up take a few seconds to relax and connect
fully with this new day! Then stretch and feel the new days energy
circulating your body, say to yourself in a very positive way “ this new
brings benefits, new energy and new opportunities to me!”
Even if you know that it's going to be a
difficult day, if you start your day in a positive and gentle way, you
will react differently to situations that occur during the day, you will
get through those difficulties far easier, and things that are
disagreeable will have less of a lasting effect on you.
And when you do finally get out of bed, don't
just rush downstairs, drink coffee, eat hastily and then rush off to
work, allow yourself a little time even if it means getting up 10
minutes earlier to move slowly and gracefully into the new day.
Start your day with some ‘Pranic breathing’
Set stand in a relaxed and comfortable way,
take a deep breath and hold it to account of three.
Then gradually let the breath out and imagine that you are
letting out with it anything negative that may hamper you during the
Do this three times
then sit/stand for a few moments and feel how
refreshed and calm this will make you feel! This is something you can do
at stressful times of the day, or when you have been rushing about and
need to take a little time out to rebalance your energies, after all
feng shui is all about balance in all that we do, and the places that we
live and work in, and approaching your day with balance and enthusiasm.
Except the new day's energy into your life,
Whatever you decide to eat in the morning, eat
deliberately and with respect for the food that you are eating, never
rush your food and never eat anything that you don't feel at that time
would be good for you.
Consider what you eat through out the day!
Rushing your food is as bad for you as eating
inappropriate food! Give
some serious thought to what your body needs, consider your body and
almost ask it what it needs
you to eat right now? And
when you do it, do so giving full attention to the food that you are
eating at that time.
Make it in a deliberate activity apart from
what else you do, in other words don't do anything else whilst you are
eating except to focus on the food that you are taking in! Allow your
body to concentrate on what it is doing without giving it two or three
things to do at the same time.
Try see the food that you eat as not just food
but as energy that you're taking into your body, to create more positive
Chi or energy, so respect of the food and eat it in a respectful way.
When you are dealing with other people during
the day, respect their space and boundaries, this allows them to
maintain a healthy balance also and if you allow them to do this, they
will acknowledge this to you on a deep level and allow you your own
Avoid conflict if you possibly can, and if you
cannot, always remember that however irritating the other person is they
must be treated with respect, if you can take the heat out of a
difficult situation it is better for both of you. Creating chaotic
energy in your own or anyone else's life is not good for your health,
and there are always ways to get round this that or more positive for
feng shui will help keep you healthy, if you
allow the energy to flow uninterrupted through and around your body,
respect your body and give it the space and time to work properly.
