Your Sacred Home

Feng Shui is an ancient art that originated in China over 4,000 years ago. Its literal translation is wind and water. It is the art of promoting health, wealth, and happiness by harnessing positive chi. Chi is a subtle flow of electromagnetic energy that links all things in the universe.
Our blood carries oxygen and nutrients. Chi energy carries thoughts, ideas, emotions, and dreams from our environment. What we think and where we live have an influence on our cells, both positive and negative.
"The kitchen becomes central to manifesting the life you want; whether it’s healing, financial abundance, fame, or love that you seek."
The kitchen is your life source. The meals created in this space will feed each cell in your body, feed your family what it needs to grow and thrive. When looking for or decorating a home, it’s important to be very clear on how you wish your kitchen to serve you. Yes, how can your kitchen serve you and the life you wish to create! Because how you do anything is how you do everything. How does the layout support your lifestyle? How do the appliances make your day-to-day needs easier? How can mealtimes become the experience you’d like to create? How can you infuse your meals with the energy to deeply sustain the life you want?
"You are what you eat. Each ingredient in a meal determine the power behind your actions and the clarity of your thoughts. Even your mood while cooking or eating influences how that meal will affect you."
Maybe you’re someone that is always rushing; rushing to cook breakfast, to rushed to eat breakfast, rushing to get to work, rushing to leave work, rushing through dinner, and rushing to bed because tomorrow’s another day. What am I missing? Because how I do anything is how I do everything.
