Oh, the power of a Vision Board. It is a beautiful place to post our dreams and goals. Our visions for our day, week, year and life show up in various way - a list of goals, a few pictures saved on Pinterest, journals, brainstorm sessions, etc. They are all in some way or another about a vision we have for ourselves, our families, our business and our work. All are important and guide us on our journey.
Stop for a moment and take a look around - you are living and working in your vision board. What do your surroundings look like right now? Is there anything broken? Cobwebs? Stuff you don't like? Do your surroundings inspire you? Are you comfortable? Do they represent who you are or who you aspire to be?
What if your home reflected your vision? Feng Shui ignites the power of vision in your space. It brings awareness to your surroundings. Everything that surrounds us is an unconscious reminder of the life we are living. Hmmm, now look around again.
Feng Shui is a practice and one that moves with your life, your dreams. Your home should be a nurturing space that holds you as you reach for your goals. Your workspace should be one of support. Your surroundings should represent your life and your journey in the most beautiful way - nurturing, secure, comfortable, supportive.
Feng meaning wind and Shui meaning water, are associated with good health and bring the energy of good fortune. Feng Shui is based on the Bagua Map, which represents aspects of our life. Each aspect is aligned with an area in your home. In the BTB School of Feng Shui, the Bagua Map is aligned with the entrance to your home. The Bagua Map is divided into 9 sections or Guas that represent the following areas of our life.
Each Gua is supported by one of the five elements in Feng Shui; earth, metal, water, fire and wood. The elements represent the opportunity to shift energy. Through the cycles of the elements, energy is transformed in order to expand the energy and fortune of life.
Bringing in the practice of Feng Shui allows you to bring balance to your surroundings. Our souls crave a sense of balance. When we find this balance in our surroundings, we feel at ease and supported. What better way to feel as you move forward in creating your life?
I have seen clients shift energy in their homes that then reflect in their lives - new love, a boom in business, ease in family relationships, deeper connections, a focus on wellness. They each create their own, unique vision board within their home, often with items that they already own. This expanded awareness of their surroundings and the elements supports them in moving closer to their personal vision.
