FENG SHUI CONCEPTS

dictionary, prosperity is defined as “the condition of being successful or
thriving; especially economic well-being.” Almost all my clients do
feng shui to improve their wealth. In the process, they often discover that the
path to prosperity is not really about how much money they can put into their
pockets, but their quality of life as they do so. They come to see how their
feng shui affects their health is crucial to their wealth.
Just as our house shelters our body, our body houses our soul. Mutually dependent, the house and
body are reflections of each other. Not only is every orientation of the house
associated with a different aspect of our biology and spirituality, but the
structure of the house can be seen as an extension of our human functions.
the front door reflects the mouth, the roof reflects the head, the windows reflect the eyes, the ventilation reflects the
respiratory system, the plumbing reflects the circulation system, and the back
door reflects the anus. How the house is configured, aligned, and which items are placed where, affects corresponding aspects of our health.
When we keep our house clean
and organized and maintain natural light and ventilation, it becomes a sanctuary in
which we can prosper. People who live in blissful
homes have a positive outlook
on life, are in tune with their purpose, and feel connected with nature. Their brains are wired to heal faster and
overcome problems quickly. In the same way, when our body is taken care of, nourished, and not polluted or weighed down by toxins, our mind is sharp, we have more energy, and can better focus on self-cultivation.
On the other hand, when we work long hours, we end up neglecting our home and our health. A cluttered
house that is dusty, junky, dark, and filled with stale air affects the
people living within
with similar personal problems of being overweight, depressed, and stagnant in their livelihood.
economic crisis, we’ve learned that money in the bank does not ensure
prosperity. What is the point of working your fingers to the bone only to come
home too exhausted to do anything but eat and sleep? Many people are so focused
on the bottom line and working 80-hour weeks only to discover that they have
gotten chronic migraines, ulcers, hernias, and cancer.
I hope we do not have to learn the hard way that without our health, we lose our prosperity. No matter how
much money we’ve earned, how can we enjoy it sick in bed? More importantly,
without our health, we lose our truth and our ability to contribute in a
positive manner. Of course, a stable income is important, but how much money do we really need? Are you sacrificing
something far more valuable than money for the extra digits in your bank
statement? In life, true prosperity is good health.
