Feng Shui is one of many sophisticated tools invented by the ancient Chinese, along with printing, gunpowder and the compass. The idea here is that we, as humans, are a microcosm in the macrocosm -a very small, but important wheel in a wonderful large machine of the
Whilst Feng Shui tends to sound rather esoteric and vague, in the realms of mysticism, there is real science behind this art! As I shall explain, every year our body’s electromagnetic energy (light) relationship, or bearing, changes with respect to the Earth, our Sun, and the Cosmos. Feng Shui advice seeks to adjust and balance these changes, in order to harmonize our lives.
Let me explain:
Little is talked about the LIGHT connection of Feng Shui, the Earth’s natural Light (Electromagnetic) radiation, which varies year to year. The Earth has a molten metal core at it’s centre, which rotating, acts as a dynamo. This dynamo radiates magnetic energy into our atmosphere 10 miles from the Earth. It’s called the magnetosphere.
The geese stayed in Scotland, my homeland, particularly late this year, flying in a perfect ‘V’ above me on their way to Iceland. Watching them in April, I remembered that migratory birds navigate by using the magnetic material in their brain to connect to this Earth energy. A fabulous type of GPS!
An even bigger energy source that affects us on a day to day basis is that of the Sun. Earth’s magnetic energy is bathed in the enormous flares, photon emissions and plasma ejections of our Sun, whose light energy regularly upsets our satellites and pilots with its solar flares and storms.
Keeping in mind that the Earth is rotating round the sun at 30km/sec, whilst the sun itself is hurtling round the galaxy at 250km/sec, we can see how the world around us constantly changes, and there are forces and energies affecting us, outside of our conscious appreciation, which we could have little idea in our day to day activities.
However, like the birds, we can find the easiest ways is to navigate through the ups and down of our lives by using the ancient art of Feng Shui.
The most important thing is that we are part of this Light energy play, as we also radiate Light (electromagnetic) energy. Our hearts radiate out, rather like a radio transmitter, 6-10 feet around us, many thousands time more powerful than our brains. There’s a ‘Russian doll’ type arrangement with one energy nestling inside and being affected by the others. So our little hearts pump out their energy into the field of the Earth’s magnetic energy, only to be bathed by that of the Sun.
Now that we know the nuts and bolts, what’s happening this year?
Year of The Snake:
Each year has associated elements; wood and fire are the strong elements for 2013.
This year is called ‘Year of The Water Snake’ -the snake’s associated with healing, renewal and transformation. 2013 is generally good for relationships and marriage, however the most important thing for this year is to ‘let go ‘, or, as they say, ‘go with the flow’.
The Snake relates to healing of the physical body and shifting to a more spiritual outlook. Since antiquity snakes have been associated with healing and medicine, which we find in the medical symbol in the caduceus – in which two snakes intertwine up a staff.
Slow steady progress with attention to detail and focus will be the success strategies of this year. Self reflection, being clear about what you want to achieve, and visualizing positive outcomes will lead to calmness whilst achieving your goals.
THE SOUTH and SOUTH EAST are the lucky area of the home/office and also the lucky direction for 2013. So we need to energize this area of home or office by light, moving water or these traditional means. Plants are especially good here (wood to feed the fire element of the year) as they will energize this area by bringing life (and oxygen) in. Also, this area is a good place to change our furniture around – move your favourite chair to face south.
SOUTH WEST – If your front door faces south west (facing the door when in the house), you need protection from theft, flood or any other calamity. Metal will be protective, – whether in the form of a planter, statue or wind chime by your door. Using a grey doormat is an easy thing to do that will also help.
The fun part:
Stones to wear
Gem stones from the centre of the Earth have specific magnetic, energetic properties.
For 2013, the most auspicious ones to wear which will help you are jade, amethyst , turquoise and tourmaline!
