Manifestation has become a popular trend word and activity within the last couple of years. Not that people haven’t been manifesting their dreams for centuries, but more and more people are discovering that there are secrets and ways to manifest your dreams quicker and with more ease.
While many people have used affirmations, gratitude journals, and meditation, there is one tool of manifestation that is seldom talked about, yet has great potential to influence your reality. That tool is Feng Shui.
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art of design and energy work. It uses geography, math, and astrology to inform the placement of furniture and colors and materials used in a home. Feng Shui can often be shrouded in mysticism. Really it is quite simple and not complicated at all. To grasp the concept of Feng Shui, you must first understand the laws of energy.
The Law of Energy
Everything in this world is made up of energy. Spiritually, we see this in many ancient texts from around the world: Hinduism, Taoism, Slavic Witchcraft, etc. Each culture has its own word for ‘energy’.
Science has also come to this conclusion, viewing atoms under microscopes vibrating at high speeds to form solid masses, liquids, and gases…the foundation for everything we see. This is known as Quantum Physics.
Since everything is made up of energy, we are as well. This isn’t just our physical bodies, but our thoughts and feelings also hold energetic frequencies. With everything being connected, our thoughts and feelings can influence our physical world and the lives we play out in it, and visa versa.
What is Qi?
To put it simply, qi is the term used in Feng Shui for energy. Qi has many different meanings in China (where Feng Shui originated). In Feng Shui, the three main types of Qi are Cosmic, Earth, and Personal Qi.
Cosmic Qi is the qi of the sky and heavens. It is the astrology, direction, and weather patterns that are used in Feng Shui to dictate placements of furniture and the sectors of a home.
Earth Qi is the qi of the land. This means the location of your home, the furniture in it, and the objects as well.
Personal Qi is the qi of the self. This focuses on your own personal energy, otherwise known as your aura.
Feng Shui combines all three of these qi to understand the specific placements of pieces and types of objects to add to your home in accordance with your personal qi.
The Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction is a common tool used in manifesting one’s dreams and desires. Put simply, we attract what we are, or we attract the energies at which we are currently resonating at. When we want to attract something into our lives, we need to operate at that frequency in which we are wanting to call in. This means shifting our own energies from a ‘want’ mentality to a ‘have’ viewpoint.
Manifestation and the Law of Attraction operate at our subconscious level. Since our subconscious minds work with feelings, we need to rewire this aspect in order to attract. This often means the repletion of affirmations, mantras, or gratitude journaling.
Feng Shui and Manifestation
Feng Shui works with our subconscious minds through the constant repetition of what is surrounding us on a day to day basis. Our environments play a huge role on impacting our energy and our beings. What we surround ourselves with impacts our subconscious greatly. Feng Shui works with understanding the laws of energy to rewire our beliefs and subconscious, based on the items, furniture, and overall flow of qi in our homes.
Everything holds energy, and this is true for our items. There is a lot of symbolism in our stuff, and we can see people using this to their advantage. For example, a lawyer or CEO might have a picture of an eagle in their office, symbolizing power. A fancy restaurant might place roses on each table, symbolizing romantic and love, perfect for intimate dining experiences for couples.
Through shifting the energy in our homes, and seeing/experience these items on a daily basis, we can shift the energies in our own lives.
Feng Shui is a great tool to attract what you are desiring into your life, and to bring peace, harmony, and flow into your reality. If you are interested in harnessing the powers of Feng Shui into your own home and life, check out my intro class to Feng Shui or schedule a consultation today!
