Scientific feng shui links the way we design our spaces with the way we experience our world. All of our five senses are incorporated in the changes recommended for a client. The five senses are the readers of our spaces and if we do not activate each one some way within these spaces, then we begin to lack the promises that each one of the senses offers in our journey in life. They work together as a team. If one team member is not present then the end result you seek begins to ravel away eventually.
For example: You deny yourself the true experience of touch. Look at your current environment and identify anything that when you connect via your eyes or skin, makes you imagine the beauty of that tactile experience. If you do not see or have anything like that in your space then that tells me you do not nurture yourself. This goes for both men and women. Who doesn’t love a luxurious chenille robe wrapped around them? Who doesn’t love soft plush pillows on a couch or chair that makes you want to cuddle? I don’t think I know a soul that would say to me “I don’t.” Denying yourself time for nurturing and placing things in your environment that talks to you in that way, well, it’s a short trip to burnout. Each sense plays a role in the process of your personal growth and realizing your intentions. I will talk about this in another blog entry soon.
The Feng Shui Institute of America incorporates the teachings of experiencing the five senses–sight, smell, touch, Hearing and taste within a home. I read somewhere many years ago that falling in love with a house is like falling in love with a person. The wiser seller sets up a seduction scene that appeals to all five senses. Feng shui does the same. When working with clients the first thing I do is assess how, if at all, each of the five senses is represented in the home.
If you want your guests to feel wonderful each time they visit your home, you will want to set up a seduction scene. This falls under the science of psychology and human response.
Another science, neuroplasticity plays a strong role in why feng shui works. It works with the brain changing the way we think and feel. According to the EOC Institute, as the hemispheres of the brain learn to work in harmony, our logical left brain hemisphere and intuitive right brain hemisphere merge their abilities, super-charging our brain’s productive capacity. Scientists call this whole brain thinking.
Furthermore, EOC says we become more creative, our brains assimilate information much faster and we become more mentally alert thus propelling us towards our personal and professional life goals. Scientific feng shui steps up to the plate and creates physical environments that address anything that feels off key where whole brain thinking must take place. Then by adjusting the environment to support this whole brain thinking, we move our client into the activities that mimic the Law of Attraction. It is fascinating how much science is at play in feng shui adjustments. If you would like to learn more about this either through personal coaching or become certified in this field, check out our coaching or a consultation page, or certification program for more information. You can also contact the school and request an interview to answer questions about feng shui in general or any of our courses.
