Nothing in the world exists independently! The human body is probably the most remarkable example of coexistence with all of its moving parts and organisms that work in unison to unfathomable lengths of complexity. You could study the brain for a lifetime and still find something entirely new to learn. Why is coexistence so essential, and what does the harmony of coexistence have on your health and well-being?
We all know that energy or "Qi flow" is the life force within every living being – human, animal, plant and more. When the imbalance of energy within yourself is out of calibration, then one part of you is overwhelmed and overstimulated while the other is drained. Most of the time, we can identify when there is an imbalance of energy; however, there are times when the burdens of life bear down on us with intensity, and we become momentarily blind to the imbalances. The science and mathematics of energy are quantifiable to a degree, but outside of those measures of quantification, there is grey space.
Moving negative energy and creating the right energetic flow is an art form in itself - the Eastern World knows the ebb and flow of energy as "Feng Shui." The principles of Feng Shui can be applied to existing landforms, buildings, living things and spaces/products that alter the energy and prosperity of the people around them.
Feng Shui is in dire need. Our energy levels are erratic, and our inconsistencies bring forth unreliable outcomes. The western world utilises psychologists and mind coaches to aid with the development of alternative thinking while the Eastern world focuses on the power of the five elements that affect mood and thought, space and time. The contrast of approach between the east and west is broad, but we have to agree that energy is the driving force. The electrical conduction within your brain is ever-varying and is measurable energy. This principle also applies to the landscape, natural and human-made, the structure of buildings and the people within them who are going about their daily activities. Invisible chords of energy link everything together - this is Feng Shui (wind and water).
What we focus on becomes an energy barrier or enhancer. If you could enhance positive outcomes through the ancient science of Feng Shui would you take the leap? Alternative methods for health wellness and prosperity are at the forefront of practical thinkers. Why medicate when you don't have to? Why go down the same path when you can explore alternatives that will probably deliver better results. Three thousand years of ancient Chinese wisdom can have a positive impact on a component of your life.
Begin with your environment, focus on the things you can change and learn how to move energy to your advantage. The winds of change blow swiftly to those who are receptive. Some changes take time, some changes are out of your control, but there are still things that you can work on that will improve the odds and work to your advantage. In fact, when you learn to work with energy and combine it with other Chinese metaphysical tools available, you can face your challenges head-on and win.
Start with Mindset and then move to your physical spaces to benefit immensely from the elements and principles of Feng Shui. Feng Shui for Business, for home and life, is something you need to take advantage of today. Move obstacles with positive energy and work on the varying amounts of energy required for the more substantial tasks in your life. Move at your pace, but remember that half the battle to change is starting.
