Happy Dreamin' with Feng Shui!

Legend of the Dreamcatcher

Feng Shui first began in the west during the Han Dynasty around the third century BC. It is the art of placing objects so that they are in harmony with their surroundings. Feng Shui believes that every object has its own life and energy, and its harmony is dependent on its placement and its surroundings.

Feathers have a great deal to do with Feng Shui. The dreamcatcher is a Native American disk made of feathers and leather. It is said that dreams, both good and bad, float through the air all day and night searching for their destinations. Sleeping under a dreamcatcher is believed to make you feel secure. Bad dreams are believed to be caught in the web and perish with the first light of a new day, evaporating like the morning dew, while the good dreams float down the feathers and onto the dreamers head.

The dreamcatcher originated from the Native American Indians. You can hang them by the window in your bedroom or at the head of your bed.

Different Traditions

There are plenty of different Native American Indian tribes whose natural environments range from the Arctic wastes of Alaska, northern Canada and Greenland to the forests of Canada and the Great Lakes. They are found on both the east and west coasts of America, on the plains and badlands, in the Rocky Mountains and in the arid deserts of Mexico, Arizona and New Mexico.

With these vast differences in experience, environment and upbringing, it is not at all surprising that their traditions vary greatly. The Pueblo Indians of the South West and the Navajo believe that you should hang your dreamcatcher directly above your bed. The good dreams get caught in the web so that you can hold onto them and remember them in the morning. The bad dreams pass straight through the web, leaving you completely unaffected by them. This is the complete opposite of the beliefs of the Plains Indians. Even though the legends and designs of dreamcatchers differ among different cultures, the underlying meaning and symbolism is universal.

Reiki for Addictions!

There are several people facing one or more addictions, which over a period of time can affect their health, leading to serious illness and even death. Addictions can take a toll and play out in lives, affecting careers, relationships, finances and family life. Reiki is a welcome addition to treat it as it provides vital support to recovery efforts. Though it is unlikely to help a person overcome an addiction on its own, it is benefial once the person is sober or in the process of getting sober.

Recovery can be an emotional rollercoaster for an individual. The person could be under tremendous stress while trying to adapt to the new life away from alcohol, drugs or any other addiction. It is very crucial to deal with stress as the person could get easily overwhelmed and be tempted to relapse.

The person could also experience plenty of anger and resentment, which Reiki can help eliminate effectively. Reiki offers ways for the person to deal better with stresses in the first few months of recovery. Daily Reiki sessions may make things more tolerable for the person. The more Reiki is received, the more centred the person will become.

Individuals who have been involved in substance abuse for a long time usually do a great deal of physical and mental damage. Reiki can help repair the damage caused and get the individual back on track towards healthy living. This type of healing can help individuals become more comfortable in their own skin.

This can be particularly helpful for those individuals dealing with issues of self-esteem. Just the gentle healing hands of Reiki can make pains and headaches disappear in minutes by bringing an energy balance in the body. When used in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques, it can be an effective tool in one's plan of recovery. If you are looking for a treatment for yourself or for a loved one, Reiki therapy is definitely worth checking out!

Vaastu Architecture to Benefit Studying!

Vaastu Shastra is the ancient art of architecture. It enables one's buildings and living spaces to retain the most conducive and congenial atmosphere by taking note of the elements surrounding it. Let's find out how it can benefit students and aid with their studies.

It is widely accepted that students are amongst the most stressed out of every other age group. They are burdened not only with academic work, but other extra and co-curricular activities, their own hobbies and interests, an active social life, making time for family, getting the adequate rest required for growing children and basically being on top of everything.

It is no wonder that the stress levels of students just keeps rising every year with more and more students opting out of the system. Here are some Vaastu Shastra tips that are extremely useful in helping the study room be a place that enhances the concentration and focus of the students while they sit there.

  1. The study should be built in the Eastern or North eastern part of the house and the child must face either of the two directions while studying. This is because according to Vaastu, the East not only represents the all-powerful sun, but also Lord Indra, the king of Hindu gods. It is the direction of success and prosperity. The North is said to be the direction of riches, since it belongs to Kuber, the treasurer of the gods.
  2. The direction of the room is not the only thing that matters. According to Vaastu, the shape of the study table should be rectangular or square and it needs to be medium sized. The table must not be pressed right up against the wall but a gap must be there between it and the wall representing a blank mind and the space for new ideas.
  3. The student must never sit directly beneath a beam.
  4. The study must not be a dim, poorly lit room. For a proper flow of positivity and good vibes throughout the room, it needs to be well-lit whenever the student is in there. For best results, it is ideal to keep a powerful study lamp on the study table.

We hope these tips help the students in your life better their concentration, focus and studying abilities.
