Four-legged Feng Shui
I love our dog. Her name is Maggie. She has a tilt to her head that melts my heart and I love that whenever I say her name, her tail begins to wag. When I'm around her, my energy lifts. No wonder dogs, and in fact all of our four-legged friends (and two-legged and no-legged), are good Feng Shui.
For anyone who has a pet they love, I'm sure they'll agree that just having the pet around helps to lift spirits, soothe nerves and re-focus our attention onto something positive. Good Feng Shui can be defined as an environment that makes you feel good. Well, there's nothing like a purr or gentle swish of a fin or a sweet chirp to help you to feel good.
In Feng Shui we use enhancements to direct the energy or chi of a space and intention to attract the kind of chi we seek. Our pets naturally do this for us. For one, they're movement alone directs the energy of a space, keeping it active. (Stagnant energy can create blocks to achieving our goals from a Feng Shui perspective.) For another, when you're near your pet, and enjoying your pet, you are taking a big step toward establishing some positive intentions. Our intentions are driven and reinforced by our emotions. When we feel positive emotions, this helps us to attract more positive emotion -- more energy or chi.
The more chi you have, the greater support you will have in achieving your goals -- and ultimately creating balance.
So enjoy the pets in your lives. Not only do they make you feel good, they create good Feng Shui, naturally.
