Feng Shui and Mindfulness
Unlock the Secret to Harmonious Living with cShashona’s 5 Essences.
My Weekly Blog is designed to teach the secret behind cShashona’s 5 Essences for Harmonious Living.
Mindfulness has become a popular catch-all phrase in our culture these days. It’s a word freely dropped by celebrities when promoting a healthy lifestyle, which include other buzzy activities such as, yoga, meditation, and mantra work.
But mindfulness is its own a special practice that can improve every aspect of your life. My goal with this week’s blog is to bridge the sacred relationship between Feng Shui and mindfulness to create inner harmony.
As a Grand Master in the art and science of Feng Shui, I’ve mentored clients in recognizing how their surroundings mirror how they see themselves. When you’re Mindful about your surroundings, you begin to relate to energy from the objects and colors in your home or office. Remember too, all the objects in your home represent your emotions and attachments. If there are any items that bring back bad memories or negative emotions, or are just taking up space, it’s time to clear them out as the first step in practicing mindfulness. Similarly, if there are objects that are sacred to you, provide comfort, place them in areas where you can view easily.
Take a moment, pause and look around to ask yourself, how does your space make you feel? Your home can recharge or depress you. What energy are you sending when people first enter it? Is it warm and inviting? What art work have you chosen to hang on the walls? Do these images inspire you? Do you have plants and flowers? You always want your space to vibe with nurturing energy. There’s a deep connection between your health, happiness and feeling safe and nurtured in your home.
Our lives are hectic today, and we seem to be focused on how quickly we get thing done rather than how can we transform ourselves to be productive and recharged.
To do so, we need to transform ourselves, this is the basis for Mindfulness – Sensory Design Strategy.
My Sensory Design is a unique extension of Feng Shui and will provide all aspects of emotional, social and environmental functions. It is a new lens through which to view and advise interdependence of the senses.
Mindfulness is a very simple method to enhance each quality of self, increasing life force and beauty within to radiate energy and vitality – your life force to the world.
Stiletto Heals® Tip: The Higher the Heel, the Higher the Spirit
Color is a pure, visual vibration- a therapy for health and wellness. The wrong color choice can affect the emotional health that will react upon the total field of the body. I call it a “chain reaction.” It can show systems of toxic environments, as well as in fashion-the color colors can increase fatigue, exhaustion and anxiety.
For example, children learn faster in yellow colored rooms. Surgical rooms use the color of green or blue to absorb the red hues of surgery. I use the color blue in the glass containers of my sprays and candles to promote tranquility, calm and peace wherever they are placed.
The color hue is divided in two categories, which I call:
Red / Fire – fame and recognition, heart of the flame
Blue / Water – flow and air
(Together, Red and Blue breathe – vapor)
Yellow – Sun energy, fertility
Green – the image of life
White / Yang – Male power, aggressive
Black / Yin – reflection – Female power, assertive
Sensory Design will empower through the use of warm colors associated with red to yellow hues, and cool colors, such as blue to violets. In addition, each season requires the need to balance color with energy.
Home Tip: To expand the inner space, add mirrors, soft lighting with warm colors that relate to nurturing.
For sensory design benefits: Color, texture, nature, sound and placement can play an important part for encouraging positive energy. Using colors that create feelings of contentment, well-being and power will increase your energy and promote health and healing via the Sensory Design program.
