Feng Shui Tips for the Urban "Renterati"!

Are you a young professional, who is ambitious and hence always on the move looking out for good opportunities, changing homes every once in a while? Then, this article is for you. We share Feng Shui tips for the urban "renterati" – a term for people who stay in rented houses.

So, the struggle is, you are always moving houses, cities and sometimes even countries. With so much going on in life already, you have very little time to apply Feng Shui to your home. But this practical guide shows you how to benefit from Feng Shui, while setting up the ever-changing house. Right from the furnishings to the décor, here are some tricks you can follow.

The secret really is in the way you arrange objects around the home. The key aspect is seeking balance, (between yin and yang) despite constant change. There's an ideal place for every object (books, TV, lamps, furniture, etc.).

When the laundry is the only thing permanent in your life, how do you achieve a Zen space? Let's start with the bedroom, a space where you spend most of your time. The most important object in here is the bed. When placed properly, the bed can provide security and better sleep, resulting in good health. The ideal way to place a bed is diagonally opposite the door. You should have your head against something solid, like a wall.

Next is the young professional's second most used entity - the desk. Don't let less space determine the location of your desk. Make sure you never keep it in the bedroom. A desk is one of the most powerful objects that shape your growth. Position the desk diagonally opposite from the door. This gives an imperious view of the room, allowing clarity in thinking. When you study, make sure you are not showing your back to the door or against a large window (both are distracting).

Another important aspect of urban living is the electronics. Electronics emit energy and currents that can be distracting, especially while sleeping. So make sure you don't have too many in your bedroom. The ones that you can't absolutely avoid - keep at a distance of two feet from the bed.

With this simple list of object placement, you can achieve a more peaceful and positive space that will contribute towards your growth and also make shifting much easier!

Reiki for Self-Healing!

Are you a busy person who always gets winded up by the end of every week? No matter how many spa sessions you attend, nothing seems like a permanent solution for handling this constant stress. If this is the story of your life, then learning Reiki for self-healing might just be the answer you've been looking for. While getting a Reiki treatment is the second best option, self-healing is a much more reliable and efficient choice.

In the practice of Reiki, there are usually three degrees of training, each one progresses from the former, building up to the latter. Each one has a specific purpose and scope of objective to be attained. Though, the primary focus is always practical Reiki self-learning.

The typical study of Usui first degree class lasts for over 8-12 hours. You will have to practice Reiki self-care. This class prepares you in a way that you can perform Reiki on yourself every day. The class lessons teach you hand placements, techniques and how to perform Reiki in critical situations through "spot therapy." There are different kinds of Reiki sessions conducted for healthcare professionals where they are taught Reiki for a clinical setting. The sessions in both kinds of settings are mainly experiential; however, the teacher also helps you understand the history and origins of Reiki for a deeper understanding. The most important aspect of the class is to empower students to learn the power and use of energy. The first degree course has four initiations that teach you how to practice Reiki on yourself and family members.

The second degree is about distant therapy. In this, you learn how to replace the hand-to-body contact with a mental connect, so that healing is possible even when touch is impossible or inappropriate.

The third level is to attain the Reiki master title. In the early years, this training was exclusively offered by invitation only. Accomplished students who were ready to give their lives to Reiki were the ones who were eligible for invitation. This training is a little different from the other two as it requires you to complete an extended apprenticeship with a Reiki master. In order to teach another, it is mandatory to go through the third level of training.

Vaastu Tips for the Home Shrine!

Just like a best friend, a book or good advice, Vaastu is something you can always go back to when you have doubts in your mind. You will certainly find a solution and a positive one at that. This month, we tell you how you can use the ancient principles of Vaastu for your modern day temple at home.

Home temples, shrines and altars are our go-to spaces when it comes to seeking positivity. They are the most auspicious elements of any home. Being an integral part of the home, we all want to follow the proper ways of keeping the gods happy. One of the most important aspects in achieving this is the direction. If the direction is not right, the home will not benefit from the veneration. To have God's blessings always showered on you and your family, make sure it is Vaastu compliant.

Home shrines should be designed cautiously as they are sacred and connect us to the divine and the cosmos. The positive vibrations will improve the overall energy and increase the benefit of prayers. Make sure the divine sanctuary you build in your home is placed higher above so that the deity's feet should be at the level of the devotee's chest. Inside the shrine, whichever god you worship, the idol's height shouldn't be more than 10 inches as it is considered inauspicious.

Place the shrine in the north-east corner of your home. However, due to any reason, if the north-east corner is unavailable, then you can place it on the east or west side of your home. If you are planning to build a shrine from scratch, consider using wood or marble with a dome on the top. Do not place the shrine directly on the floor as it is considered to be disrespectful towards the gods. Place the diya, candle or incense in the south-east direction for the positive vibes to spread. Also, keep in mind to not place your ancestors' pictures in the temple alongside the gods.

These simple tips, when followed sincerely, can yield positive results and help you grown in your life and career.
