Power of the Phoenix!

The phoenix is a magnificent large bird, part of four celestial animals. The phoenix is the one who rises from ashes when everything is destroyed and this symbolism of the phoenix makes it a very auspicious and important part of Feng Shui. This bird is associated with the fire element. In ancient China, it was believed that the phoenix would appear in good times when there was peace and harmony. Therefore, it is considered auspicious and is believed to bring good luck and fortune.

According to Feng Shui Bagua Theory, the South direction, which is the sector of fame and recognition, is the direction of the phoenix. Placing a phoenix figurine alone in the South sector activates the yang energy, creating both popularity and great opportunities. Keeping a phoenix painting or any image of a crimson phoenix in the home encourages good luck and prosperity. The best place to hang the painting or picture of a phoenix is the south wall of the house or in the living room. Placing it in the front of the home, in complete view of the main front door is believed to bring several good opportunities. However, it is advised not to place a red phoenix in the bedroom as it activates the mind, making one unable to sleep peacefully.

The phoenix symbol is also used for wish fulfilment. It is suitable for individuals who are looking for love or for those wishing to make their current love stronger and to heighten the level of loyalty to their partners. When it is placed alongside a Dragon, its yin energy is activated. The phoenix and dragon is the perfect couple and complement each other wonderfully. It is optimum for couples (yin and yang) who are looking for everlasting love and for matrimonial bliss.

The phoenix can face any adverse environment and prosper among difficulties as it is believed to possess energizing yang energy. It does not represent any religion and can be kept by any individual following any religion.

The phoenix works as a great gift for the matriarch of a family or to someone who is struggling in the professional life or to someone who has hit rock bottom financially, physically, socially or emotionally. It is believed to help one bounce back and turn life around with a new found glory.

The rooster's body symbolizes several virtuous qualities, making it an excellent earth substitute for the phoenix. You can place the image of the rooster or a ceramic sculpture of it in the south of your living room.

Prep up for Reiki!

Removing jewellery

Almost everyone likes to wear jewellery. However beautiful it may be, it may pose problems on the energetic levels during a Reiki session. Metals and stones attract subtle energies and often form closed metal circuits. This is the reason why precious stones have to be purified for healing purpose. The body may not respond to Reiki energy due to impairment of the closed metal circuits.

Removing Quartz watches

Watches made of quartz have their own rhythm of subtle electromagnetic vibrations which can be checked electronically. As the human body has a different vibration frequency, it is affected by the rhythm of the quartz watch, which can be a constant source of interference during the Reiki treatment. If the recipient wishes to benefit wholly from the Reiki session, choosing an attractive and mechanical watch that is easily available in the market is advised. This is applicable to the one who practices Reiki on someone else, transferring Reiki energy as well. The person transferring Reiki may also benefit from the energy flowing at each session. The energy flow may also be greater for the practitioner if sources of interference are completely eliminated.

Washing hands

Apart from the obvious hygienic purpose, washing hands also holds an aesthetic meaning. Hands perspire a lot and also touch a lot of things. In the initial positions of the whole body Reiki treatment, hands are placed directly on the face or next to it where the recipient may be able to smell any odour. It is best to have a neutral smell as it will ensure a positive and pleasant Reiki session for the recipient. Washing hands after a Reiki session will help the practitioner get rid of any imprints that may have been transferred from the Reiki recipient.

If for any reason, there is an unavailability of water, you can pass your hands on both sides of the flame of a candle. This will also effectively cleanse the hands.

Invocation

Before the actual start of the Reiki treatment, the practitioner has to ask mentally or aloud to channel Reiki energy onto the recipient and heal the individual. This is considered a mark of respect for the person who will receive the Reiki energy.

Vaastu For February 2017

Vaastu for Garage!

Though one of the most ignored areas, a garage is as important as the house itself. A Vaastu-perfect house radiates positive energies and ensures healthy life to the people living in it. The same principle applies to the garage too. It is advised to have a garage built with proper Vaastu for better efficiency of a vehicle.

The location of the garage is one of the first considerations you need to make and ideally, it should be in the northwest or southeast direction of your house. If the vehicle is placed in the west of the northwest positioned garage, the owner is bound to travel quite often. For a vehicle parked in the southwest corner, it is believed that the vehicle will require minor maintenance work. The floor of the garage should slope towards the east or the north. It is recommended that the size of the garage have 2 feet of walking space left after parking the vehicle, ensuring movement of light and air inside the garage. Also, ensure that the vehicle does not touch the compound wall or the main building.

It is a strict no-no to park the vehicle in the north-east direction as it is believed to be an access point for heavenly forces and obstructing such forces is not wise. However, if the garage is built in the basement, parking in the northeast area is permissible. A garage built in the southwest would mean rare usage of the vehicle and in need of constant repair.

It is believed that placing the vehicle with its front portion facing the east or the north helps prevent overheating. It is also believed that the vehicle might face fire hazards if parked facing south or west. Also, the gate of the garage should face the north or the east. It is also important that the height of the garage gate is not more than the main gate of the wall. It should open freely, without any hindrance, allowing ease of movement for the vehicle.

It is considered auspicious to paint the garage white, yellow or in any other light colour. Remember not to keep any waste or inflammable material in the garage as it can cause unnecessary harm to the garage.
