Align your life

Feng Shui For The Soul

We spend most of our lives living for others. We buy bigger homes to impress others, wear clothes to blend in and lose who we are by becoming the mirror image of others. Is that how we were meant to live? Was that the path destined for us? I am not so sure about the answer.

Many clients employ my services to implement Feng Shui in their homes and offices. Changes are made, walls are repainted, interior decorators are hired to implement suggested changes, and new furniture is chosen. Everything that is external is fixed.

However the thinking and outlook to life remains the same. Emotions like jealousy, guilt, and anger continue to dominate your mind. Feng Shui helps in balancing your immediate surroundings; but who is in charge of balancing your inner world? What is the use of balancing your environment, when you don’t want to change from within? If positive internal changes are not embraced, no amount of Feng Shui can help you feel balanced. The success of Feng Shui depends on how ready you are to embrace the positive changes. And you can only be ready if your mind is at peace.

Facing and conquering your inner demons makes Feng Shui a lot more effective. It helps in opening up intuition and you are able to feel the change in energy around you. Along with clearing clutter from your home, you also need to clear the clutter internally. That is the only way to experience the full benefits of Feng Shui. So how can one balance the inner world? One way of moving forward is by performing emotional cleansing along with Feng Shui implementation. Emotional cleansing helps in letting go of old relationships, neutralising anger and working on guilt. Once you are free from all the excess baggage you have been carrying for years, you will be ready to embrace your new life. There will be new relationships, new friends and new opportunities. Feng Shui will bring about balance in your environment and emotional cleansing will balance your inner self.

So along with redecorating that living room, why not enroll in a yoga class? Join a meditation class, take up journal writing, get a new hobby or simply go for long walks to unwind.

Change your life by choosing Feng Shui for your soul.
