Where do you place your health and fitness on your list of priorities? Seriously, make a list. Examine your list closely. Is working late hours a higher priority than working out? Does scoring the next raise and promotion rate higher with you than raising your heartbeat? If so, you’re not practicing feng shui.
The feng shui bagua map positions the “Family & Health” sector immediately below the Wealth sector. This signifies the importance of maintaining good health in order to create abundant prosperity. It also is symbolic of the idea that a strong family, a strong body and mind, are essential to building a strong foundation for attracting and accumulating wealth.
The art of feng shui is about achieving balance in our lives so that chi (energy) can circulate freely without blockage. I often think of feng shui as yoga for the environments where we live and work because yoga teaches our bodies to breathe. Ever get winded going up a flight of stairs? Well, if your home or office has stagnant energy in it, it’s like the room or building itself is in a constant state of being winded. Not having enough energy to do the job. And in this case, the job I’m referring to is having enough positive chi to support a balanced life, a life filled with opportunities for success.
Spring is a time of renewal. I recommend that in order to create more wealth and prosperity in our lives, we must pay more attention to our health and our family relationships.
*Routine maintenance. Get a complete physical to make sure you catch any problems early.
*Get moving! Fit exercise into your busy schedule, even if it’s simply walking more.
*Eat healthy. It’s really true that we are what we eat. A good rule of thumb is to eat a wide range of colors in fruits and veggies so you know you’re getting your vitamins naturally.
*Make amends. If you have some discord with family members, take the first step towards reconciliation.
Remember, maintaining good health and healing those family rifts directly impacts your wealth sector. Reason enough to do it!
I was inspired directly by the environment for these rug designs that are hand made in Kathmandu, Nepal. Shown here is “Beach Stones” made from Hemp and Banana Silk. You can buy this and other of my rug designs through Spacify. Or, I can design a custom rug just for you. BTW, this rug is made of “industrial grade hemp”. Just don’t try to smoke it, okay?
