“If you have the ability to dream it, you have the capacity to fulfill it”
Your dreams are not there to taunt you, they were given uniquely to YOU so that you could fulfill them. When you feel discontent, it’s because you are ready to EXPAND. True happiness comes from allowing ourselves to grow. When we reach for new heights and accomplish our goals, we feel fulfilled. So follow your heart and go for it! The only person holding you back is yourself. This post will teach you how to get out of your own way by changing your thoughts to attract more of what you want into your life.
Intention is the secret ingredient in feng shui. When you make adjustments with intention, you are setting a purpose for what you are doing. The adjustments that you make to your environment will be more effective, and your desires will manifest more quickly.
How to Set Your Intention
Here are three suggestions on how to set your intention every time you feng shui a room. It is something you will want to do during the feng shui process, as well as after the room is completed. It is also something that you should do during maintenance. For example, after I applied feng shui to our bedroom, if I had cleaned out our closet or added a picture to the wall, I would set the intention for what I wanted. The more intentional and purposeful you can make every change you make to your environment, the better the results will be!
After making any external movement to your environment, you may bless the shift with a prayer from any religion that you identify with. Remember, feng shui is not a religion. It honors all beliefs, even non-believers so to speak. If you are Christian, you can say the Hail Mary or a prayer to Jesus. If you are Buddhist, you may say a prayer to Him.
- Affirmations are in the NOW: Even if you don’t have exactly what you want right now, say what you want as if you already have it. For example, if you are looking to accumulate more money so that you no longer have to be stressed out about paying off your bills, you would say, “I am grateful that I always have enough to pay my bills.” Or “The universe supports me financially in everything that I do.”
- Affirm with gratitude or a positive emotion: When you say what you want, say it with a grateful heart. In addition, always say what it is that you are wanting to attract. Avoid using any negative words such as “no” or “do not.” For example, if you are hoping to heal your relationship with your partner or another family member you could say, “I am thankful for our lifelong friendship and joyous relationship.” Or, “I find great joy in talking with my partner about my feelings. We listen to each other and feel deep fulfillment in our relationship.”
- Imagine the affirmation is true. What does it feel like? As you say the affirmation, imagine how you would feel if this really became true? How does your body feel knowing that all is well? How does your head and heart feel now that this area of your life is healed? Say it. Mean it. Feel it. Dr. Laura Berman has elaborate research on the study of quantum physics and how this particular step, “feeling as if,” is so vital to the process of attracting what you want into your life. Our body’s cells respond at the molecular level when we visualize what we want and act as if. The Universe matches our vibrational frequencies and delivers exactly what it is that we are giving out.
Praying and Affirmation Combination
Gratitude attracts more abundance. Try praying in using a positive affirmation. Act as if God has already blessed you with your desires and it is on its way. An example of this would be something like, “Dear God, I am so grateful for the abundance of money and friendships that you are sending my way (right now).” Remember, The Universe, or God, says “yes” to all of your hearts desires, as long as it is for the greater good. He wants you to be happy and experience all of the blessings the world has to offer you.
There are official mudras or affirmations that have been passed down from our ancestors to feng shui practitioners. These mudras are sacred and are only to be passed from teacher to student or from consultant to client. These are powerful tools that are available to you if you decide that you want to take your feng shui journey a step further. However, your personal prayers and affirmations are still very powerful and important, and you WILL experience accelerated results by setting your intention in your own unique way.
