Dear Earth Clinic Member, Change is constant, necessary, and unavoidable yet not entirely outside of our own control; and it is for that reason that we reawaken our newsletter for this introduction to Francoise Courty-Dan, a Feng Shui consultant trained in the classical Chinese tradition. If you haven’t considered integrating Feng Shui into your home and office, this might be a good time to do so. Toward that end we have asked Francoise, a.k.a. The French Feng Shui Lady, to offer up an introduction as to what this ancient science can offer in the way of improved health. As always, a recent highlight from the website follows, and if you haven’t visited us in awhile there have been a variety of new content areas added to our treasury of complementary and alternative health. Perhaps even the secret to your own season of healthy change!
An Introduction to Feng Shui & Health
By Francoise Courty-Dan
June 10, 2013
Classical Feng Shui is an ancient art and living science that uses very sophisticated and complex methods to enhance life through energy. It can improve your wealth, relationships, health, and longevity.
There is a popular misconception that Feng Shui is all about wealth in the sense of prosperity, money, and getting rich. Although it can definitely contribute to improving your finances, wealth has a much larger meaning in Feng Shui and includes relationships, career, and health. After all, how can one have a good life and enjoy it without good relationships and good health? Good Feng Shui in your home can help you rejuvenate body and mind, recover more rapidly from illnesses, minimize complications, and support good health. Of course, having your house Feng Shui-ed should not keep you from having a good diet, exercising regularly, and living a healthy lifestyle. According to Classical Feng Shui, someone’s life is based on the 3 aspects of the Cosmic Trinity (“Tien-Di-Ren” in Chinese), which means HEAVEN Luck (Tien), EARTH Luck (Di), and HUMAN Luck (Ren). Each aspect contributes 1/3 to our success in life. Heaven Luck is 1/3 of our luck; it is our Destiny. Human Luck is also 1/3 of our luck; it is what we achieve by our own efforts. And finally, Earth Luck, the last third of our luck, is Feng Shui, the art of harnessing the forces of nature. We follow a holistic approach and always look at the health issues when we analyze a project site, even if the occupants do not ask for it. After analysis, we make suggestions so that clients can maximize their health in their current space, prevent accidents and injuries, and remain healthy. Needless to say, Feng Shui is not a cure for health problems and should not replace medical advice and treatment. However, it can be used as a supplement to enhance your health and well-being.
So let’s get practical…
In order to maximize your health and well-being, a house must be properly supported in the back, right and left side – support can be in the form of a retaining wall, thick landscaping, or a building. For instance, if there is no support on the right-hand side – which is on the right as you look out your front door, it may indicate sickness for the female of the house. Your gua number, determined by your gender and the date of your birth, gives relevant information about your health such as specific vulnerable issues and emotional make-up. Look up your gua number here.Most importantly, your gua number determines your Tien Yi, your personal direction for great health and should be activated; and your Liu Sha, your personal direction that can bring accidents, poor health and serious illnesses that should not be activated. The kitchen and the bedroom are the two most important rooms for health in the home. The kitchen, because it is where we prepare the food necessary to our well-being, and because its quality has a direct impact on our health. The bedroom, because sleep is also vital for survival, and with sleep, our body relaxes, rejuvenates, and repairs itself. Consequently, the energy in the kitchen and the bedroom is essential to our health. Additionally, Feng Shui can determine the best places for relaxing and rejuvenating in your home. If you are interested in a truly holistic approach to your health, this is just the surface of what can be achieved with Classical Feng Shui, and we encourage you to look more deeply to the benefits it offers. Bonne santé et longue vie! Good health and longevity! For more information, please visit owfs.wpmudev.host Earth Clinic Newsletter June 10, 2013Copyright 2013 Earth Clinic, LLC. All Rights Reserved.
