Spring Into Health – Even though The Classic Chinese Almanac states the end of Spring as Friday, May 4, and the start of summer on Saturday, May 5, we in the west are still in the throws of Spring.
Spring is associated with new beginnings, movement and the element of wood. The earth is awakening from the long sleep of winter and the Qi (vital energy) of wood element is moving up. Notice how the grasses are pushing through the earth, spring flowers abound as the earth announces that Spring is here! This is the time we do our Spring Cleaning, inside and out in both our environment and in health.
ENVIRONMENT CLEARING – Have you noticed the urge to clean up and clear out lately? This is a natural phenomenon of the season. In our homes we are clearing out the “cobwebs” of winter, preparing our patios and yards for summer festivities and planting gardens.
Clutter is an issue for many of us. So, what does that have to do with Feng Shui? Clutter represents stagnant energy QI). Clear your clutter and you will feel energized, thoughts will flow more freely and you will experience a great sense of relief.
I remember hearing a talk show psychologist report a story of a patient who called in with an emergency. He was feeling over whelmed and afraid he would do damage to himself. She was involved with another patient and could not take the time to work with him at that moment. The doctor told him to keep himself occupied for the next hour and suggested that he clean out his closet! When she called him back he said the crisis was over and that he felt relief after getting rid of the clutter! This is a wonderful example of how our “stuff” bogs us down.
A great way to achieve your “clutter freedom” is to take nine minutes a day and work on clearing an area that is bugging you. It may be your desk top, the “junk” drawer in your kitchen, or the medicine cabinet in the bathroom……most of us have so many choices! Put on some energetic music and have fun cleaing your way to freedom! Practice this for nine days and you will see and feel great change.
Feng Shui Tip – If the headboard of your bed is on a common wall with a bathroom, you may experience poor health or fatigue. Energetically, having the headboard and the toilet sharing the same wall is not good. It drains QI. As a solution you can paint the shared wall an earth tone to stop the bad energy from entering into the master bedroom.
