Have you ever noticed that when you enter a space your body goes into a "relaxed" or "anxious" state? Have you ever thought "how can that be", or "did I just imagine that feeling"?
The Chinese believe that our human physical, mental and emotional bodies react to our environment; where energy called "chi" flows.
This knowledge is called Feng Shui. What Is Feng Shui? Feng Shui (or Wind and Water) is the practice of arranging your environment so that energy or “chi” flows gently and smoothly through your home or business environment. In this way your space just feels good–and supports what you want out of life-whether it’s a better career, new romance, improved health, or more income.
Not too fast or too slow—just right! Feng Shui is based on the concept that everything in your environment has a life force or energy called “chi.”
Just as chi flows through your body, chi also flows your through living environment. When the energy flow is stagnant (think clutter and overflowing closets), moves too quickly (think long dark hallways, stairs, and straight shots through the home), or is obstructed (think walls, trees, or even cars in the wrong place), the unbalanced chi may lead to ill health, domestic strife, or financial concerns.
Feng Shui adjustments can help you make sure that the chi energy flow is just right so that everything in your environment supports your wish for good luck, good health, harmonious relationships, and prosperity.
Carole Tetreault the owner of Calder House B&B offers a very basic course to introduce you to this concept. Carole has been practicing Feng Shui in her home and landscape for 10 years. She is self taught and loves to play with energy. Her next class is being offered in April. Check the "Events" page for details.
Feng Shui is not a meditation practice, a religion, or a New Age cult.
Carole is the owner and operator of the Calder House Bed & Breakfast along with her partner Grant. Read more about the everyday happenings and events at the Calder House!
