Feng Shui Food for you Healing Purposes

Feng Shui is alifestyleand can be applied to just about anything and everything you do.  I have found through my own personal experience and updates from clients that even the smallest details when utilizing Feng Shui changes can make a difference.  A big principle in Feng Shui is your intention, the Law of Attraction.  20%  is physical change and 80% is intentional. 

Last month I had a dear friend who became sick and his health steadily declined as the days passed. Seeing this concerend me greatly so I offered my services as a friend and Feng Shui Consultant if I could space clear his home. My intention was to clear out "sick" energy to allow a healthier environment to manifest itself in his space.  I also offered to clear his Aura with the intention that his body would allow the extra energy needed to begin the healing process from with-in.  That night he called me up and noticed a suddle change, his appetite was a bit stronger...and that made me very excited!

To fight illness you need to feed your body in multiple ways, emotionally, spiritual and of course nutritionally.   It was a first step in the right direction.  The next day I visited him and offered to cook a meal.  When cooking my intention was  to create a meal that was, one really tasty, two continue to stimulate his appetite and three help him heal.  I took great care in pre-paring his food and this may sound silly, but I made sure to create it with "love."  Your energy is a powerful revenue for healing and if channeled correctly, it can have the potential to make a difference.  I want you to also be aware that presentation is key. 

Have you ever walked into a restaurant or cafe and became instantly hungry?  The reasons can be because of how the environment is set up, colors used (red for stimulating hunger), smells and the energy of the employees who greet you.  They all play a factor.  Bring this idea into a friend or loved ones home who is not feeling good and this can help with the healing process as well stimulating eating.

We all have the potential to help others along the pathway of healing.  When working with energy, you intention for the purpose is very important.  Be supportive in anyway, even if it is as simple as creating a meal.

Feng Shui Tips and Advice for everyday living by Laura Cerrano of Feng Shui Manhattan

Feng Shui is a lifestyle and can be very easy to incorportate into your daily living.  Here are some simple tips you can use to start your day off in the most positve way.  Open your blinds and allow the outside in.  More then 80% of our time is spent inside our NYC apartments, homes and businesses.  Allowing the morning and afternoon sun into your space helps balance the energy inside. 

Do you find yourself not sleeping as soundly as you would like?  Take a look around your bedroom.  Does your bed have a sturdy wooden head board?  Having a wooden headboard according to Feng Shui Principles will promote better sleep because you are supported.  Look underneath your bed, is it clutter free? Try your best, especially in New York city apartments, because space is so tight, to keep that area clear.  In Feng Shui energy rises and when you sleep your are most open to energy.  If you have documents such a "Wills," school work, dumbbells or even sharp objects, that type of energy can disturb your rest and "clutter" your mind.  It would be best to place them in a closet for storage. 

Make sure to address all corners of you home.  Empty comers in Feng Shui can lead to energy becoming "stuck." Simple ideas of filling your corners can be with plants, wind chimes, artwork etc.  If you decide to use a plant make sure you choose "rounded leaves."  Basic rule of thumb for Feng Shui plants, stay away from prickly, pointed sharpe edged plants, ex. cactus.

This is a huge Feng Shui Principles, always acknowledge those who help you in life for this will lead to more opportunities in your future.   Individuals who help you do not have to offer big help, it can be simply lending you a dollar to ride the subway or the extra 25 cents to buy that can of soda or even give you directions to travel to Chelsea Piers, NY.  

Number one Feng Shui tip and I save it for last because you always here it, De-clutter.  Clutter in Feng Shui relates to your mind.  The more you lighten up the better your home, office and you will feel.  To help you de-clutter think, what ever I do not "need, use or love," I'll get rid of or donate.  

Try these changes, be aware of energy shifts and see how you and your environment feels.  For some it is instant and for others it can be a process, everyone's situation is unique.
