Feng shui translates as wind and water in Chinese. This form of balancing energy began more than 4,000 years ago. Samadhi comes from the Sanskrit language of India meaning ‘enlightenment’. I chose this title, Samadhi Feng Shui to express how when we balance the vital energy in our bodies, dwellings, work spaces, communities, cities and land around the globe we attain a sense of Samadhi.
All beings live under the influence of Earth and Heaven (the cosmos). How we understand this influence is the basis of practicing feng shui. If you are drawn to take a fresh look at your habits and ways of being, feng shui serves as a great lens.
Does it seem as if parts of your life have no life to them? Feng shui can be a refreshing catalyst to foster the changes you are seeking.
Relates to deep wisdom, the kidney/bladder area, opportunities and our path in life.
Signifies growth, the liver/gallbladder channels & organs, fortitude and action we take in life.
Ignites joy, corresponds to the heart/small intestine and shines our reputation in the world as our authentic selves.
Stabilizes oneself to receive nurturance, correlates to the stomach/spleen and our ability to enjoy life’s bounty.
Contracts inward, relates to the lungs/large intestine and our emotions of grief and letting go.
To create a balance of these elements in our bodies and lives is being in the flow of life. “How do we balance these?” you may wonder! One way is by practicing feng shui.
Our planet is on an ongoing mission to balance its dark and light energies. This strive for balances translates down from the planet onto our land, air, seas, human bodies, plants and animal life. We are constantly striving to balance yin and yang.
Yin represents the feminine and Mother Earth. Characteristics like stillness, incubation, intuition, nighttime, receptivity and germination are yin energy.
Yang relates to the masculine principle of Father sky. Yang energy can be seen as active, logical, expansive, daytime.
What are ways we can keep yin and yang in healthy relationship with our bodies and living spaces? When we keep these two energies in a proper flow we are living in the way of The Tao.
