Feng Shui Tips to Enhance Spirituality & Learning

  • 2 of 3

We can locate these energy centers by overlaying what is called a Bagua map (on page 3) onto the floor plan of our living space. This information comes out of the ancient Chinese book of wisdom and divination, the I Ching and is one of the more esoteric parts of Feng Shui.  See Charting the Energy Centers of Your Home.

Take a close look at what your environment is telling you in this area. Can you draw parallels between what is happening or ‘not-happening’ in your life by observing what is going on in this section of your home?

Do you find the junk closet in the Knowledge and Self-Cultivation area or pictures and objects that reflect a chaotic and busy life style? Perhaps this is in your garage where all of the junk and broken objects have landed or you may be missing this area from your floor plan all-together. (See page 3 for working with missing areas).

Feng Shui teaches that our outer environment will always reflect our inner environment. The good news is that by shifting the outer, we also shift the inner and are able to consciously direct our lives and change our experience. In doing so we become energetic shape shifters and our lives begin to come into alignment with our higher aspirations.

Once you locate where this energy center is in your home (see page 3) you can enhance it with objects that reflect your desires for this part of your life. Then:

  • Clean it up, clear it out and make it an inspiring place to spend time in
  • Add enhancements to encourage the chi (energy) to become activated along with environmental affirmations that represent what it is you do want to have happen in this area of your life.

These Environmental Affirmations are physically manifested thought forms. Every time you look at these objects you are sending the chi in this direction, however subtle this may seem. (See my article Your Home is Attracting your Future).

Enhancements for Knowledge and Self-Cultivation:

  • Posters, paintings photos of quiet places in nature, especially still mountain pictures representing Knowledge. A poster of a soaring bird might be a wonderful affirmation for when you drive into the garage, reminding you to make some spaces in your day for contemplation
  • Figures of teachers, Buddha, Quan Yin, saints, angels, deities and wise people in your life in contemplative poses
  • Quotes and affirmations and inspirational sayings pertaining to knowledge and self-contemplation
  • Vision boards of you surrounded by nature and natural settings in contemplation
  • Books full of favorite titles that you love to read or would like to study near a comfortable reading chair with a strong reading lamp
  • A meditation room or meditation area located in any quieter room where you can light a candle, put on meditation music and just breathe
  • Create a meditation altar with a special cloth, objects of inspiration and personal meaning such as things you found in nature, a candle and a favorite crystal. Spend at least 20 minutes per day sitting in front of your altar, completely clearing your mind and focusing just on your breath.
  • School work, books and projects that you need to spend time focusing on
  • Objects relating to a new course you want to take or path of learning

@Melissa F., I can tell you from my life experience that Feng Shui is not 'stupid crap'. It works subliminally by helping to keep your mind focused and positive. It's certainly worth a try.
