Artwork and Feng Shui

Artwork and Feng Shui

I get asked a lot about artwork and Feng Shui, especially about colors. There are corresponding colors to each area of the Bagua, but you do have to be careful about the artwork you choose and where to place it. 

It’s best to display paintings or photos of realistic images rather than abstract art when trying to improve chi movement or luck in an area. Why? 

If you present something realistic, it assists the chi to move more easily as it is representative rather than interpretive. Abstract art is cool and I don’t discourage it, but it is more difficult to use as a cure if it is abstract. Stay tuned for more on artwork and Feng Shui.

Take a walk on the wild side

The Japanese have a word for it-Shinrin-Yoku or Forrest bathing. The Japanese believe it is important to make an effort to regularly connect with nature. Feng Shui loves a balanced being, and this is a perfect way to balance the body and soul. Get your nature on! 

The scientifically-proven benefits of Shinrin-yoku include:

-Boosted immune system functioning, with an increase in the count of the body’s Natural Killer (NK) cells.
-Reduced blood pressure
-Reduced stress
-Improved mood
-Increased ability to focus, even in children with ADHD
-Accelerated recovery from surgery or illness
-Increased energy level
-Improved sleep

Just as impressive are the results that we are experiencing as we make
this part of our regular practice:
-Deeper and clearer intuition
-Increased flow of energy
-Increased capacity to communicate with the land and its species
-Increased flow of eros/life force
-Deepening of friendships
-Overall increase in sense of happiness

Be careful what you lie on

I love Jesus Of The Day, and hopefully am not offending anyone.

In Feng Shui, red in the bedroom is very auspicious for romance…most of the time.

Be careful that the pattern or overall effect is serene and romantic, and not reminiscent of a crime scene.
Pick red in small doses or as part of a pattern-too much red is too much yang and doesn’t support sleep. In this case, and with these sheets, you might never dare sleep again.
