What I have discovered through my life’s travels is that having it all begins at home. When we’re at home, we should feel comfortable, happy, pampered, surrounded by beauty and all the things we love and the people we cherish.
I believe that living in a place that reflects our highest ideals, our sense of peace, our present abundance and our hopes for the future is one of the most powerful and effective ways to create a lasting personal nirvana. It should greet us when we walk in the front door and go along with us when we head back out into the world.
More than just a place to crash after a long day in the trenches, our homes are a reflection of who we are and speak directly to the quality of our lives. When our homes reflect less than our personal best, it’s a pretty good indication that we are leading less than excellent lives.
Feng Shui (say it right: fung shway) is a 3,000 year old Chinese Art. It is not a fad or religion; it’s an environmental science concerned with the Qi or life-force energy in the environment. Originally used by kings and emperors to build palaces and temples, it is now used by everyone because it works.
FENG SHUI TIPS FOR 2016:
Miranda is one of my favourite clients because she rolls up her sleeves and does the Feng Shui work to shift her energy to create more success, happiness, good health, joy and love in her life. She wanted me to share with you top tips to help you get started for a fabulous New Year.
1. Make sure your foyer or main entry is clean and clutter free because this is where you invite good Qi into your home. It is called a Ming Tang or Bright Hall and the Qi needs to enter, collect and circulate. This is where your home invites new opportunities.
2. Most auspicious sectors of your home for wealth in 2016 are the Southeast, Southwest and East. Take a compass measurement of where those areas are located and spend more time in these rooms. If there are windows or doors in these sectors, open them more often. Qi is activated by using a space.
3. 2016 is the Year of the Fire Monkey, which means that fire will be the dominant force of the year. Metaphysics and self-improvement will be good to focus on for major personal break-throughs. It will not be a relaxing year and you may have to work harder, but the rewards can be huge. A personal BaZi Chinese Astrology reading is always suggested at the beginning of a new year to gain personal guidance on how you can maximize the year. Miranda never misses an opportunity to consult her BaZi!
