Tips for Starting a Feng Shui Practice
Like everything in life, you need to know the rules so you can succeed. With a Feng Shui practice, you can add a little boost to creating the life of our dreams by implementing a few Feng Shui remedies around your home, and office.
Here is a quick list of things you need to know or do before you practice Feng Shui. That means you should do this before applying any Feng Shui cures to your home, office or car.
Pick a school
There are several schools of Feng Shui that practice Feng Shui in different ways. You have to find the one that works best for you. I practice the Black Hat Sect of Feng Shui because it is easy and all I need is a bagua, instead of a compass. (I cannot tell north from the south if I was looking at a compass.) This school works very well for me, and it was quite easy to learn.
Read and understand what Feng Shui is
You should know what you are doing before you practice Feng Shui because if you do the wrong thing, it will only cause more damage.
Always set intentions before doing a Feng Shui cure
If you are looking for love, write down specific information on what you are looking for in a partner, think about what your life will be like with your partner. Think of those intentions and visualize them when you are doing the cure itself and very often after the cure.
Set goals in different areas of your life
It is important that you set specific goals in different areas of your life. This will help you put your life in balance. The bagua has nine areas of life; you probably have two or three areas you need to work on now.
Test the cures for a few days
When you do a Feng Shui cure always test the cure for a few days to make sure the cure is beneficial to you and not causing problems in other areas of your home. I shared an apartment with my sister that had a long hallway. I placed a crystal in the hallway hoping to diffuse the energy shooting down the hallway from the large windows front of the house. Within days of putting up the crystal, all my sister and I did was argue, I was lucky enough to remember cure with the crystal and took it down, and the arguing stopped. So, watch out for subtle changes in your home after doing a cure and make sure they are positive and what you want.
Use objects and colors that you like
If you hate the color pink do not paint your entire bedroom pink if you are working on a love cure, this might just be counter-productive. You might add a sculpture of a loving couple to the love section of your bedroom.
Use Feng Shui cures in moderation
If you have too many cures at the same time you may not be able to tell which one is working and which one is not. Trying doing one cure for one life aspect at a time so you can gauge the success of that cure, if it is working within a few days, you can do something else.
Keep these tips in mind when you practice Feng Shui and you are on the road to living the life of your dreams.
