Open Spaces. Providing a sigh of Relief with Feng Shui.
Day #243 of #365 Days of Feng Shui
We have two small boys, 3 and 6yrs and they go kinda crazy at home.
I have noticed how much this particular home, which is smaller than our old home, impacts the boys and the dynamics of our whole family unit.
And I wanted to touch on, that Feng Shui is not only about homes or buildings but about spaces, landforms and the impact outdoors, nature and landscapes have on you.
Our boys are very very active, it’s even been pointed out to us how active they are from day care workers and teachers.
And in our old house we had a really big back yard. Big, like huge and long yard. And when the boys started to bounce off the walls in that house, all I needed to do was to chuck them out the back door and away they’d go.
I would even get them to race the length of the yard, up and down, over and over for them to expel their energy and to feel the space. It worked and I loved being able to do that.
Now with a smaller house and tiny back yard, only fitting a small round trampoline and hills hoist clothesline, we don’t have that luxury.
Though what we do have is a huge heath directly behind us and parks close by. And what I find amazing is the instant sigh of relief and decrease in stress when we take the boys to expansive spaces, normally in nature.
Feng Shui literally means wind and water and is the study and practice of how the energy plays and moves on the surface between Heaven Qi and Earth Qi, and how that impacts you.
Every part of the space you occupy at any given moment, will have a direct impact on your energy.
And also using the spaces outside in nature to calm your stress, open your opportunities and allow you to breathe, is just as important as creating that feeling within your home.
