YOUR HOME NEEDS TO BREATHE, TOO

ROOM TO BREATHE
When we are meditating, or following our spiritual practice, the goal is
often to still the chatter in the mind, to simply “be”. In fact, the
Calming Heart Sutra aids us in accomplishing that goal. Notice when you are in that stillness of being,there is still one thing that you are doing: breathing. Without breath, you are not alive. Think of Qi or ch’i (pronounced “chee”) as the breath of your home or office environment. We want to keep the rooms we live and work in healthy and filled with vitality. To do that, the ch’i must be circulating, the space itself must be breathing. That’s the main explanation why feng shui practitioners are so obsessed with eliminating clutter. Clutter blocks the circulation of ch’i.

  1. Great explanation of the movement of chi and why we declutter. To carry your breath metaphor a little further, clutter is like a case of asthma or a bad cold, where the breathing apparatus is so clogged with gook we function very badly.

  2. Reblogged this on Feng Shui By Fishgirl and commented:

    I’m reviving this post from my archives because it bears repeating.
