What's Your Intention?

Thomas J. Story for Sunset

Franca Giuliani - Recently someone asked me if I really believe that feng shui works. Well, I had to laugh, because I think they're missing the entire point of feng shui. Yes it works. In essence, it works for better or for worse, because feng shui is the relationship between our environment and us. Our inner disposition is revealed within our external realm. We're attracted to our space for one reason or another, and it will suit us for that given time in our life.

For example, if you find yourself in a chaotic space, it's most likely because you can only operate in that frequency at this point in time.

How can we use feng shui to help us?

  • For starters, we have to be aware of it. We consciously have to address what's going on within ourselves and within our space.
  • That's when intention comes into the game. When working with feng shui, one of the most important things you need is intention, or else anything you do will not have the anchor it needs to activate necessary change.

So, your homework for this month is to start asking yourself what is your true intention. And May is a great time to ponder that question, because this is the month that we're all in the houses we were born into. It can be quite unsettling! Keep in mind that based on 9 Star Ki, May begins on the 6th and lasts until June 5th.

During this month, though, if you want to tap into some positive life force, add some water to the North West of your space. You can use a water fountain or fish bowl. Be creative, and just make sure you keep that water clean and not too still.
