Good Vibrations

It’s a new year ….. hallelujah! Mind you, it has started off a bit shaky, but I am going to set my sights on the good things to come. Since 2020 drove us all indoors for much of the year, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon, I’ve been thinking about what we can do to make our immediate environment better and more conducive to harmony and self improvement.

With that in mind, the new focus of my blog is going to be feng shui. For those of you who might be unfamiliar with feng shui, it is the science of living space. The words literally translate to “wind water.” Although feng shui has been widely used in China and the Far East for centuries, it has only gained popularity in the West fairly recently. Feng shui offers an integrated set of guidelines for organizing your environment (home, office, etc) with two goals in mind:

  1. achieving balance
  2. harnessing positive energy to create well-being and help bring good fortune

Let’s talk about energy. No matter what you call it – chi, prana, vibes, – one thing is certain: all around us, there are visible and invisible light emissions that help us to define our surroundings. In Western science, these energy lines in the atmosphere are referred to as the electromagnetic spectrum. In Chinese science, they are known as chi energy lines or “earth currents.” These earth currents are believed to be dynamic forces that impact all living things. Human beings are influenced by the quality of this invisible energy; we vibrate in consonance with its rhythm.

Have you ever walked into a room and felt energized? Or been in a place that made you feel uneasy? Do you wonder why some places of business never seem to make it in a certain location? The answers may be simpler than you think! By incorporating basic feng shui principles, you can manipulate the energy of your space. You can tap into the good chi and use it to bring well-being and encourage good fortune.

If you are open-minded and willing to consider the Chinese view of the universe – including the belief in the significance of the five elements (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood) as well as the concept of the yin and yang of energy, AND you want to learn how to harness good energy to make it work for you – then come along with me on my journey!

Who Could Use a Little Luck?

We could all use a little luck, right? Good luck, that is. So why not create your own?

Dragons

I got these little dragons for Christmas. I had been wanting to get some ever since I began learning about Feng Shui.  Dragons are powerful and magical symbols that represent success, wealth, prosperity, power, good luck in love, and spiritual growth.

Dragon feng shui symbolizes masculine or “yang” energy that promotes personal power and creativity. And as a writer, I am all about creativity! Placing a dragon figure or picture in a room will activate the Chi (universal energy) of the room. The goal of feng shui is to attract, direct and nourish the Chi flow inside your home in a way that supports a good flow of Chi inside your body.

A dragon in any area of your house or workplace will bring good luck, but you can maximize it’s effectiveness by placing it in a specific location. An ideal spot would be in the Career Area of your home’s Bagua. The “bagua” is simply a grid that divides your home into different areas, like this:

bagua-300x298

This year, the Northeast bagua area of your home is hosting a very auspicious feng shui star. There is the potential of excellent feng shui energy here that can attract luck and prosperity.
Another good place to put a dragon is facing your best/lucky directions. You can find out your lucky directions by first calculating your Kua number.

However, be careful not to place dragons in zones with low energy levels like closets, bathrooms, storage areas or the garage.

It is best to place your feng shui dragon:

  • in an open space
  • at eye level
  • facing towards the house to bring in the energy of wealth
  • in your living room or dining room but not in your bedroom, since that very same yang energy will not allow you to rest peacefully.

Since dragons are such powerful symbols, you don’t need a lot of them. It’s best to only have  a few in your house or place of business (five or less).

Here’s where I put my dragons:

Good Luck Dragons

Anyone else have any  tips for bringing good luck?
