One of the key tenets of Feng Shui is adjusting your environment to help you achieve your goals. When we use Feng Shui principles to adjust our home or apartment, it can help us to live in the “now,” to be more present, and to focus on the present time.
The present has two meanings: It means “right now” and “a gift.” That is because the present moment truly is a gift, and all we have in life are moments after moments.
I’m sure that you’ve often heard someone say, “Careful, you don’t want bad karma.” It’s a word that gets tossed around like crazy in the spiritual communities, social circles and even over dinner. Yet many have a complete misconception of the word’s true meaning. What is karma really? Many believe it means that every action we take evokes some sort of cosmic repercussion or payback—if you do something for someone, you will get something back in return, good or bad, depending on the intention behind your action.
When we stop listening to our hearts, silence gets thick and a sense of arrest floods in. Fear creeps in. We start over thinking, and doubt and inertia take over.
We have learned to tone down our excitement, ignore our desires, distrust our emotions, downplay our heart and instead, have developed resistance towards the very things that make us feel alive.
Why do you Love Your Body? Do you love your body because like Beth stated above, it houses your magnificent soul? Do you love your body because it enables you to experience the richness of life with all of your senses? Do you love your body because it allows you to create things, hug others and enjoy the pleasure of movement? I’m not asking you IF you love your body but WHY you love your body. I want to start the conversation about loving your body with the why, not the if-to get you to shift your thinking in that direction immediately.
Who among us could say they have never blamed someone else for their lack of happiness? For most, if not all of us, that simply is a way of life. This morning I was motivated to write this blog because of the continued pain of my own life experience around forgiveness in my family and how essential it has been for me to forgive myself and others over and over again. It literally is a daily reminder I have to give myself to be gentle and compassionate and I encourage all my clients to make this a part of their daily living as well.
