The Energetic Challenge of Ashes

Standard

Keeping ashes in your home is a Feng Shui Challenge

Many people keep the ashes of their loved ones in their homes and often they are placing them in a location within the home that is energetically harming them. The energy of non-living things (not only ashes, but also dried flowers and other “dead” items) can create many difficulties — everything from lost opportunities and income to health and relationship challenges.

Dead things and ashes, whether human or pet remains, represent stuck or stagnant energy and it is best to remove them from your home. If you have dead trees in your yard, remove them. If you have plants that are dead or dying and cannot be revived, remove them.

Note: If the plant was placed as a Feng Shui adjustment and died, it has likely taken the energetic “hit” for you. Thank it for it’s service to you and replace the plant with a bigger or more expensive one.

Remove dried flowers unless they have special significance to you, such as a wedding bouquet. Consider whether you can remember the event through pictures with the living flowers instead. If you wish to keep the dried flowers, preserve and honor them by placing them in a shadow box or other container.

Many of my clients do not wish to remove the ashes of their loved ones from their home. In these cases, I make recommendations on where the ashes can be placed to do the least harm. Let’s first be clear about where ashes should not be placed within the home:

  1. In the Bedroom or outside the bedroom door. The bedroom is your place of rest, rejuvenation and romance. Keeping ashes here can negatively affect your health as well as your romantic relationships, where the deceased loved one is literally coming between you and a vibrant life with those who are still living and with your own body that is still alive.
  2. In the Dining Room. The dining room is where you take in food to nourish your body. We want living things in this space to signify life-giving energy to your body.
  3. In the Kitchen. The kitchen is where your food is cooked, which also nourishes your body and the stove is located here, which is symbolizes your wealth so keeping ashes in this location can affect both your health and your finances.
  4. Near the Front Door. As you’ve read in my previous blogs, the front door is considered the “Mouth of Chi” where all the energy and opportunities come into your home. Keeping ashes, or other non-living things in this area can push opportunities away and prevent abundance from flowing to you.

 

 

 

Ashes you wish to keep should be placed in a common area, like a family room or living room and well away from the front door, kitchen, dining room or your bedrooms.

Do you wish you could connect with your loved one who has passed? I can help you with this! Through my work as an Angel Card reader and psychic I’m able to connect you with your loved ones. I’ve found these souls have beautiful messages for you and are so happy when I’m able to relay them and share the ways they are present in your everyday life. To learn more about my Angel Reading services and book your reading visit my website.

There is a special Feng Shui adjustment called the Sealing the Doors Ceremony that is beneficial and recommended to be performed when:

  • You are keeping ashes in the home
  • You’ve had bad luck in a house
  • You’ve been robbed
  • Occupants are feeling unsafe
  • Your home is located across from a church, cemetery or funeral home
  • You suspect other living spirits are present within your house

To obtain a copy of the Sealing the Doors adjustment, please email me at Kim@FindingYourFiji.com. I will request that you honor the Red Envelope tradition in exchange for receiving the adjustment.
Sealing the Doors Kits are also available for purchase on my Finding Your Fiji Etsy site.

Change your environment to SHIFT your mindset and your life

Standard

Changing your external environment helps you shift your mindset and your life. When you are in a new environment, like when you are traveling , your focus shifts to experiencing and noticing all of the new things around you. While I was in San Diego recently, I was captivated by the ocean, the birds, the seals and even the squirrels. Looking at these things I felt tremendous gratitude and joy. I could not look away. I was so engrossed in the scenery that I could not think of anything else. Being in this environment completely cleared my head.

Here’s the thing…you don’t need to get on a plane or travel to some distant or exotic place (although that’s fun to do) to clear your head. Try one of these ideas for gaining a fresh perspective, clearing your mind and shifting your life:

  • Visit a new place (state park, store, friend’s house)
  • Take a different route to work
  • See a new play or movie
  • Eat at a different restaurant
  • Spend time with a child…they see things as fresh and new
  • Watch animals at the zoo or in nature
  • Drive on a road you’ve never used before
  • Take a different walking path
  • Walk the opposite direction around the lake than usual

Get out of your head by changing your external environment. This leads to appreciation/gratitude and more joy on your life’s path to Finding Your Fiji.

Feng Shui for LOVE

Standard

Whether you are in a committed relationship or still searching for The One,” Feng Shui paves the way for more harmonious relationships. Feng Shui helps you recognize how your space reflects your life and encourages you to create a new relationship with your space. In the relationship arena, Feng Shui can help:

  • Bring balance, equality and harmony
  • Get the sparks flying again
  • Attract your soul mate
  • Reduce/eliminate arguments
  • Improve relationships with family, friends and coworkers
  • Deepen your relationship with yourself or creator

There are two main areas in your home we look at to improve relationships. One area is the partnership corner. (If you’re new to Feng Shui, click here to read my blog on Feng Shui’s mental map, the Bagua, to learn how your space reflects your life.) The other area is your bedroom, no matter where it’s located in your home.  In this article, I’m focusing primarily on your bedroom. Ideally, this should be your favorite room in the house, an oasis that is both romantic and peaceful.

Let’s first talk about the things to AVOID in your bedroom:

    1. Clutter ~ As in every area of your home or office, clutter represents stuck energy. It’s also distracting. So, if you’re trying to get your partner in the right mood, removing clutter from the bedroom will help them feel less overwhelmed and more relaxed.
    2. Dirt ~ This can represent staleness in your relationship. To keep your Partnership fresh and new feeling, keep your bedroom dusted and clean. You will sleep better too!
    3. Dead Things ~ One client I worked with had pictures of dead relatives decorating a corner of her bedroom! Sometimes we place things in spaces without really think about the metaphorical message we are sending. You want things that are alive and thriving in your bedroom and Partnership area of your home. Remove any dried flowers from your bedroom (and home) as well.
    4. Pictures of your kids and other people ~ Even if the relatives are living, we do not want them invading our bedroom, right? And kids certainly are important in our life, but again, we do not need them coming between us and our partner. The bedroom is your personal partnership space.
    5. Toys and stuffed animals ~ We want to be an adult in our relationships so childish things do not belong in the bedroom. If they are keepsakes or mementos that you love, they can be placed in another area of the home – perhaps in the Creativity and Children area.

Next, let’s talk about the things you DO WANT in your bedroom. What can you do to get the love lava flowing again or to attract your soul mate?

  1. Two equal size/weight night stands ~ This symbolizes equality in the relationship and is particularly important if you currently do not have a partner. What does it say if one partner has a large dresser on their side and the other a small nightstand? Or if one partner has no nightstand at all? Will they have much say in the relationship? Matching lamps will bring additional balance and harmony to your love connection.
  2. Art symbolizing what you want in your relationship ~ Look at the art on your bedroom walls. Is it romantic? Or do you have pictures of a frozen lake? Is it peaceful and copacetic or showing conflict? Are there single people or animals depicted in the paintings? That single cowboy picture not only shows a desert, but the guy is alone, right? That leads me to the next tip…
  3. Pairs of things ~ Pairs represent partnership and intentionally placing pairs of things in your bedroom will help balance your relationship.
  4. A current picture of the two of you, if you’re in a partnership, should be placed in your bedroom and will help solidify your bond. Sometimes I recommend a wedding picture be placed here too, to help you remember how you felt when you fell in love.
  5. Vibrant, living things ~ To really promote a healthy sex life, place 9 lush plants in the bedroom. Then, make sure you keep them alive!
  6. Add Pink and Fire ~ The partnership color is pink and adding a dash of it here or there intentionally will boost your budding or rekindling relationship. Adding the element of fire, which is all about passion, will further heat things up. You can use the color red to represent fire or physical fire (like candles) or triangle shapes. We don’t like fireplaces in bedrooms, because it’s too much energy to allow you to sleep well. However, the Partnership area of your main level is a perfect place for a fireplace.

Making changes in your Partnership area and bedroom with intention means taking time to really think about what you want to cultivate in your relationships.

Your bedroom is a key Feng Shui area. It can affect not only your relationships, but also your sleep, your health, and your mind. To bring more harmony into your relationships, your home and your life, I offer Feng Shui Bedroom consults via Skype as well as complete Life Shift Home Consultations and Booming Business Consultations.

My Secret for Speeding up the Law of Attraction

Standard

Finding Your Fiji is all about creating and living your dream life. Anyone can do this – anytime, anywhere, under any circumstance. Creating the reality you want to experience is so much fun and I love sharing my “secrets” about how you can do this yourself. These are not just concepts. These are strategies, actions and rituals that have worked for me and other people I know. The source of my knowledge is expansive: books, workshops, CDs, live events and interactions with others who have created their dream lives. I am continually learning and putting more of the pieces of the dream life puzzle together. Learning helps me grow and if you are not growing, you are dying.

The Law of Attraction is the senior law, above any other universal law including the Law of Gravity. To make the Law of Attraction work for you, you need to continually focus on feeling good – every month, every week, every day, every hour and every moment. Feeling good should be your number one goal at all times.

How do you tell if you are feeling good? It’s easy! You have a wonderful built in guidance system. It’s your emotions. You have a range of negative emotions – emotions that don’t feel good when you encounter them: worry, fear, anger, anxiety, sadness, irritation, impatience and doubt, to name a few. You also have a range of positive emotions, which feel good when they arise: anticipation, joy, happiness, excitement, peace, wonder, appreciation, gratitude and bliss. How often do you experience bliss? If you experience bliss on a daily basis, I would be willing to bet that you are living a good chunk of your dream life already.

How you feel is your Law of Attraction barometer. If you are feeling good, you know the things you most want in life are speeding towards you. If you are feeling bad, you must accept that the things you want are being placed in a universal escrow. They will remain there until you start feeling good on a consistent basis. Then they will flow to you, like a virtual river of abundance.  

So, how does this work on a daily basis? All day long, it’s your job to focus on things that make you feel good or if you are feeling bad, on things that make you feel a little bit better and a little bit better until you are feeling good again. Use anything that works for you. For me, nature is my go to good feeling source. I find joy in looking at the beautiful trees or basking in the sunshine (now that our Minnesota summer has finally arrived), a pretty little bird that lands on my deck, flowers at the garden center, the scent of Lilac bushes, the feel of a warm breeze on my skin, a colorful sunset or even an expected sighting of a beaver in the water on an evening walk.

When I meet or see people in passing, I focus on finding something I like about them…maybe they have eyes that are a unique color or I like the purse they are carrying or the shoes they have on or they have a great smile. When I see something I like and it’s appropriate to share, I tell the person directly. This not only makes them feel good, it creates a connection between us.  I also find this practice helps impress this person into my memory and that they, in turn, often remember me.

Focusing on feeling good is something you can, and should do individually on a daily basis. This practice alone will help raise your vibration. The higher your vibration or your energy, the faster you will attract the things you want into your life.

When people are connected in one room – physically together and sharing the same space – their energies or vibrations meld together and create another, more powerful and higher vibration. And, if the individuals in the group are all focused on feeling good and raising their energetic vibrations, it works like a nitro boost for the individuals, allowing them to attract the things they want at a faster pace.

In 2011, I attended three Tony Robbins’ events: Unleash the Power Within in March in Florida, Business Mastery in June in Fiji and Date with Destiny in Palm Springs in December. Saying that all of these events were high energy is an understatement. Tony has a real gift for raising the energy levels and vibrations of his attendees and for keeping that energy up for days at a time.

I took time out of my busy schedule to attend these events for a week or two at a time. Many people said they couldn’t afford to take that much time away from their business, especially those that are self- employed. Yet, my business boomed and I increased my sales by over $100,000 that year!

I learned some things that were helpful in my business and in my life. Honestly, though, I didn’t implement half of the things that I learned. I’m convinced it was more about getting that regular infusion of good positive, vibration-raising energy at regular intervals that year which gave my business that big boost.

Not everyone works for themselves or has the flexibility to travel to events like this for weeks at a time. Maybe money is an issue since you haven’t yet attracted the million dollar income you’ve been telling the universe you want. So…how can you raise your vibration to start attracting what you want in your life?

Participating in high energy, high vibration group activities on a regular basis will propel you to your dream life like a rocket. Energy Circles, a unique group meditation and energy exchanging experience created by Earth Mentor, David Nelson, is one tool I’m using to increase my energetic vibration. They are so powerful that I’ve teamed up with David to offer Energy Circles on a regular basis around the Twin Cities metro area.
