Feeling Good Living In The Space I Call Me
Feeling good is the basic desire underlying all others in your life.
And with so many programs on television to redesign your home to make you feel good it made me wonder about the space you are living in every where you go. The space in which you live your whole life no matter where you move, this space is called you.
Feng Shui Your Space
You may of heard of the ancient application of feng shui (pronounced fung shway), it is believed that you can achieve perfect harmony in your surroundings, and then extend this harmony into your life. It is based on the concept of “chi”, or life energy, and its goal is to promote a healthy flow of this energy in any space you are in. In the most simply terms, if the space you are in feels good, you feel good.
Have you ever walked into a room and felt totally relaxed in minutes? There was something about the room that was inviting and you felt totally at home. Often the feng shui principals have been applied whether at a conscious level or unconscious level. You don’t have to be a feng shui expect to know whether you’re feeling good about your space or not.
One of the fastest ways to…
make your space more inviting is to clear out the clutter and find a home for things you want to keep. Clearing the clutter out of your space allows the energy to flow. It’s like having a blocked pathway when too much stuff is in the way of travel. Most people feel better after they have cleaned up a space in their home. De-cluttering your space helps de-clutter your mind and therefore reduces your stress.
Feng Shui You to Feeling Good
Did you know that the average person has 300 negative thoughts a day? Wouldn’t you say that’s clutter of the mind? How would your life be different if the space inside you had the feng shui principals applied as well? Wow…how clear would your thinking be and how much harmony would you feel?
Negative Thoughts Drain Our Energy
With all these negative thoughts rolling around inside your head, isn’t it time to feng shui your mind too? Since you can’t eliminate the events that happened in your life, what do you do with all the memories associated to these events? Many of us replay these events over and over again in our mind causing us to have bad feelings. These bad feelings cause stress on the body and rob us from enjoying our life to the fullest.
“The problem with carrying these worries, grudges, and resentment is that they destroy our health insidiously. Resentment contributes and plants a seed in the development of cancer,” said Dr. Donna Schwontkowski, (Ret.) D.C., M.S. Nutrition, Master’s in Herbology
If we use the feng shui principals, past memories belong in the past, not in front of our mind blocking our path and cluttering up our present. Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a process used by well trained practitioners to help you unclutter you mind, putting negative emotions in the past where they belong while adding balance and harmony into your present.
