Juliana Abram is one of the leading Feng Shui consultants in Australia. She has spent considerable time in the study and practice of authentic Feng Shui, consulting to both corporate and individuals throughout Australia and overseas. In this edition of Feng Shui Today she talks about the practice of Feng Shui as a practical means to alter the physics of space and infuse rooms with harmony and opportunity. In this way it provides a focus towards transformation and positive, dynamic outcomes enabling you to live a passionate, abundant life – from the heart.
Home is where the heart is and what could be better for the heart than to live a life filled with passion, purpose and abundance. Feng Shui can support this process.
Why should cultured, modern society take an interest in an arcane system that has at its heart the challenge of proper placement? This includes the placement of your plot of land within the township or city environment, the placement of your home on that land, the placement of the rooms within the home, and the furnishings within those rooms. This is why it is so often called the ‘Art of Placement’.
Fundamentally, Feng Shui is about positioning yourself to your absolute best advantage within an environment so that you can powerfully and effectively improve your chances to enhance and positively transform all aspects of your life. In that way your environment supports you in achieving success in the world and all that may mean to you.
But why should you take a theory based on the balance between ‘Wind and Water’? A theory that uses simple principles and yet so complex in its implementation and yet again, when practiced correctly, produces astonishingly positive results with ease.
It’s a truly graceful solution to lives filled with electronic computers, mobile phones, chattering faxes, and ultra hectic schedules, which always manage to intervene between you and the natural world, the ‘essence’ of you.
Feng Shui, at its heart, is based on the premise that everything in the universe is inextricably linked by a universal energy often coined as ‘chi.’ When flowing in a smooth and balanced fashion, that is, neither too slow or too quickly it serves as a conductor to bring about positive influences or at the very least provides us with opportunity.
When the chi does not flow smoothly, difficulties abound and you can suffer inexplicable reversals in various aspects of your life such as health and relationship issues, financial and professional problems. If you doubt this, then consider a time and place where you have flourished both personally and professionally, a time when you have felt energized by the sheer act of things coming together easily. On the other hand, consider where you were when you felt drained or lacking in motivation. You may notice that during the times of lack, it is usually when you have disconnected from your own heart along with the universal energy at the centre of Feng Shui principles.
Wherever you live, whether it is a small apartment, a home or a mansion overlooking the bay, most people want their home, their own small part of the world to have enough heart and soul so that it enables you to regenerate when the need arises and also celebrate your successes as they come to bear.
At the heart of Feng Shui practice is the use of practical means to alter the physics of space and infuse rooms with harmony and opportunity. In this way, Feng Shui provides a focus towards transformation and positive, dynamic outcomes enabling you to live a passionate, abundant life – from the heart.
