Feng shui is the art and science of creating optimal environments to thrive in on every level.
Traditional feng shui can be a bit “woo woo” for my taste – filled with home blessings, potions to pour down your drains and a magical way to calculate your life based on numbers which may or may not mean you will have a good year! This steals your personal power.
Modern feng shui in my way can help you design a home that gives you all the benefits of feng shui without any superstition that takes away your power. This is empowerment!
And, it is very fun to empower your life in this way, blanketed in beauty and pleasure.
All that said, here are 10 ways that modern feng shui can help to support your dreams & change your life …!
1. Amplify your style in your life: You can get a better sense of your personal style on a multitude of levels when you use modern feng shui to create a home that is specifically for you. When you create a home that really mirrors your best self- including a developed sense of style- that sensibility carries through your whole life. I thought I had a sense of my style nailed down ten year ago, and yet it has deepened and developed greatly even in the past year working with feng shui’d space and sensory information in so many ways. Even my dog (!) has a greater sense of style and personality than he did in January of last year!
2. Get grounded: Feng shui in my way connects you to life more deeply. When you are grounded, you are present. I’m sure that the word “mindfulness” is not that new to you at this point. Everyone wants to be more present. Why? Being present is extremely powerful. People who are present have sharper reflexes, a quicker mind, a brighter glow (yes, aura is a real thing, not quackery) and they tend to feel much better. It is also impossible to be present and to be worried about the future or regretful of the past…. another awesome benefit of being grounded!
3. Focus your intention: Feng shui helps you to direct the energy in your home toward the spaces in your home that will enhance your intention and reinforce your goals. We often hear about making “vision boards” but great feng shui takes the idea to an enormous new height. Rather than just seeing your dreams in pictures on a board, you are living in those dreams. Your home becomes a vision board for your life.
4. Live with greater balance: When you layer your home in the texures, scents, sounds and even tastes that enhance and balance your nature, you gain balance in a holistic way. You don’t need to “seek” balance… it is already a part of your lifestyle.
5. Break through creative blocks: Your life is far more creative when energy is flowing freely. Every single tool of feng shui, every part of space-designing- affects your creative spirit. Great feng shui can help you stretch beyond your comfort zone.
6. Overcome habits that hold you back: When you clear space and re-engineer your living environments, it is far easier to break habits. You remove familiar triggers to your habits while, at the same time, you reinforce your desires.
7. Feel more energetic: Space that is clear and open on a multitude of planes is full of life force or “chi” that brings more life to life!
8. Enhance your intuition: Grounded, creative, engaged, stylishly-infused lives are more tapped into instinct. By enhancing your sleep, food and even your beauty/wellness routines, you might find that it is easier to hear and trust your gut feeling more.
9. Bring more abundance to your life: Yes, feng shui can help you to become more abundant. Money, accomplishment, love, health… all of these energies are reinforced by feng shui tailored to your needs.
10. Live in a more integrated way: We often will focus on one thing more than anything else- for instance, lots of people hide in work or get lost in relationships- and with a really integrated home and routines, you start to see that the ultimate way to live is in an integrated fashion. Your relationships are as vital to your life as is cultivating your good health, your family is as important as your creative passions. Everything works together. That’s when really amazing things start to happen…!
You shape your reality. This has been proven time and again. Every thought, word, action, intention… all of it makes today and tomorrow happen. I am committed to giving you all the tools you can use to harness your brilliance in your reality-shaping , the tools that can help you design your dream life! xoxo Dana
