Find Your Feng Shui Birth Element

There are five elements in Feng Shui and one will apply especially to you, based on the year of your birth. The elements are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. Using your birth element as the predominant element when you are decorating your spaces will result in the best possible environment to nourish and support you. The best way to bring the energy of your element into your home is to decorate in the colors of that element. For wood decorate in greens and brown. To evoke the energy of fire use red, orange, warm purple and strong pink. Sand and earthy colors as well as light yellow and light brown correspond to the earth element. For metal decorate in white and grey. Use blues and black bring the water element into your spaces.

HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR FENG SHUI BIRTH ELEMENT

Chinese years don’t correspond to the western calendar with each new year beginning on the 1st January, instead Chinese years are calculated on the Luna calendar with the year beginning on the second full moon after the winter solstice. So the first day of each will be a different date in either late January or early February. For example if you were born on 25 January 1990 your element is Earth and not Metal which is the sign for the majority of people born in 1990.Use the chart below to see the Chinese year that your birth date falls into and the element for your year:

Be sure to reference the Bagua to make sure that where you are placing the elements is constructive and not destructive!

FENG SHUI: 6 WAYS TO USE CRYSTALS AT HOME by ASHLINA KAPOSTA

It’s no secret that I am all about creating a blissful home. I’ve become obsessed with using elements of Feng Shui, healing crystals and aromatherapy to creative happy vibes in the home. It helps to encourage living a happier life and in this day and age, we all really need this, don’t we?  One of my absolute favorite things to do is shop for crystals. They are so beautiful and captivating and not to mention do so much for your homes energy.  I’ve done a little bit of research and found 6 different ways that you can use the power of healing crystals to improve your home’s soul, no matter where in the world you are. . .


1. PLACE BLACK TOURMALINE NEAR YOUR FRONT DOOR

Black stones, Tourmaline is my favorite, are great at absorbing negativity. They’re highly protective, making them ideal in the entryway or foyer of your home. The front entrance of your home is incredibly powerful, its where all energy enters and leaves. Place your black crystals in a lovely cluster to activate their protection properties. Black Tourmaline is a protective stone which repels and blocks negative energies and psychic attack. It also aids in the removal of negative energies within a person or a space. It will cleanse, purify, and transform dense energy into a lighter vibration.

2. ACTIVATE YOUR WEALTH & ABUNDANCE AREA WITH CITRINE

Citrine is a wealth and abundance stone, so this perfectly aligns with this area. I also encourage you to use the stone in your home office because that is typically where you work with your money energy. Citrine harnesses that concentrated energy, promoting wealth, abundance and prosperity in this area of your life.


3. ACTIVATE YOUR LOVE & MARRIAGE AREA WITH ROSE QUARTZ

Rose Quartz is an amazing love stone working to heal your heart, inspire your self love and encourage more romance in your life. You can place a beautiful crystal in your love corner next to a candle to ignite romance in your life. You can place a heart shaped rose quartz under your pillow to help you dream. I also have taken baths with 6 rose quartz stones submerged in the water. (image via EnergyMuse)


4. PLACE CRYSTALS ON YOUR PERSONAL ALTAR

Altars are a really wonderful way to help you harness your energy in a specific area of your life. They make lovely meditation spaces and are a beautiful place to set up your crystal display. After cleansing and charging your stones with your specific intentions, place them in a beautiful arrangement that gives you good vibes anytime you see it. I have seen success altars, spirituality altars, love altars and even money altars. It’s really a fun thing to do, so there’s no need to take it too seriously. I love placing crystals all around my bathtub, where I like to take meditation bubble baths with soothing music. Whatever feels blissful to you. 


5. ACTIVATE THE SELF CULTIVATION AREA IN YOUR OFFICE

 This is the area where you enhance it with things that you want to represent all that you want to become. It represents where you want to go and what you desire to learn. Amethyst clusters are perfect for this area because they are said to help you tap into your spirituality, growth and harness your intuition. This is essential as you go on doing your work in this world. 


6. USE PYRITE AS A MONEY CURE

Pyrite is so glamorous, as its brilliant, shiny and looks just like gold.  It acts as a cure within your home office to help spruce up your financial life because of its heavy metal energy. The most potent forms are the tiny stones, so try to seek these out, though clusters are my most favorite. Place these on your desk and be sure to touch them often! You can also place these in your bathroom sink to help keep the energy and good Chi from going down the drain. It looks incredibly glam too!

Has anyone said to you that you’re an old soul? You seem to be on a different level than other people. It’s not that you’re better than everyone else.

You just seem to have a bit more wisdom and experience that you can’t explain.

Evidence of your past life is likely to be within you. It’s in your subconscious mind. Meditation can be used as a tool to access those memories.

10 Strange Behaviors of an Authentic Empath

Many people are beginning to realize that they might actually be an empath. It can be both a blessing and a curse.

Once you learn how to protect yourself, you will find it much easier to traverse this world without being energetically destroyed on a regular basis.

1. You Take On Other People’s Energy

You can’t avoid it. This is the essential trait of being an empath. You innately feel other people’s emotions and energy, then you begin to mirror the same emotion. If someone is crying, it can cause the empath to tear up as well.

If someone around you is angry, you can feel this anger burning through your aura. If someone around you is negative or fearful, you begin to sink low with them and you can’t seem to do anything to stop it. Does this sound familiar?

The up side is that once you become aware that this isn’t the norm (non empaths do none of these things), then you are already halfway towards finding a way to deal with your special abilities.

2. High Natural Intuition

Empaths have unique skills that the average person doesn’t seem to have. You feel things psychically. You know what others are feeling just be seeing them. You can chat with someone and know their intentions without hearing it.

You understand how people feel, as if they were an extension of yourself. Your intuition never shuts down.

3. People Drain You Easily

This can be one of the biggest stressors for an empath. When you are around other people, you are so open and giving with your energy that you take on other people’s problems. This leaves you feeling tired as a result.

If you are constantly around other people on a regular basis, willingly handing out your energy, you can find yourself with nothing left for yourself.

The more and more drained you become, the more impossible it becomes to be around other people. Something eventually needs to change.

The answer is to pull back and stop handing out your energy so easily. Only give to those who deserve to have it, like your close tribe. Don’t be afraid to take time for yourself and treat yourself. Put yourself first!

4. You Attract Broken People

People who are searching for energy can sense that you are willing to hand it out for free. People might approach you in public places because you are sending out a message that your are willing to give your time to strangers and offer help.

This is great until you run out of energy. When an empath begins to ignore strangers with problems, they magically stop approaching you. They do not sense your free energy anymore.

You were not put on this planet to heal every person that crosses your path. Refer to #3.

5. Crowds Have A Negative Impact On You

This may sound strange to many people, but not to the empath. Events, cities, crowded rooms or even parties can overload your senses. Nightmare for the empath.

An aggressive person passing by you can feel like an energetic slap to the face.

Do you want to stress less, sleep better, and feel abundantly happier… without drugs or anything crazy?

6. Living Location Is Important

Empaths tend to feel the pain of the world, whether they want to or not. Many empaths choose to live in areas where the population is much smaller and the energy level is no longer off the charts.

Living in a high activity area can drain an empath. Empaths would much prefer to walk in a lonely place to recharge their batteries.

7. You Are VERY Sensitive

This might seem obvious, but it is one of the most typical traits of an empath. Some empaths might even feel physical symptoms that are connected to what others around them are experiencing.

If there is an unpleasant scene on TV you might leave the room if you can’t bear to see or feel it.

8. You Can Often See Through Lies

You know when someone is lying. There is no need to second guess yourself. You aren’t sure how you know, but you know it instantly.

Empaths know who to trust and who to never rely on. It’s easy for an empath.

9. Emotional Healing Is Your Gift

Due to your endless compassion and time given to the problems of others, you are actually healing them. This is why you attract everyone who is in desperate need of healing. As mentioned earlier in #4.

You should focus this ability on your loved ones, not everyone is deserving of your healing. Only use your gifts when necessary.

Don’t downplay yourself if you are an empath. People would kill to have a friend like you. Not everyone has someone with healing powers. So understand your worth, some people want to be friends and others want to steal your gift.

10. Empaths Ignore Their Own Problems

Empaths are professionals when it comes to ignoring their issues. They get so caught up in healing others, they never get a chance to talk about their own.

You carry the weight of your problems along with you everywhere you go. You know how to handle everyone’s problems but your own. At some point you eventually break drown. All your pent up emotions eventually come out.

You need to learn how to take care of your issues when they emerge. They shouldn’t be stuffed away. Take a break if needed. That way you won’t melt down or explode at someone in the future.

People At Work: Shaman: Working with the Energy of the Body By Shirley Ruhe

Healer

The door opens in the upstairs room at Sacred Circle on King Street and the sounds of relaxing Native American flute music float through the room. The shaman can feel her guardian angels, animal guides and star systems in the room. “I feel them; their presence is here.” She says, “I have a number of clients who can feel them as if they are tuned in.”

#Deb Heisel has been a practicing shaman and energy healer for almost 15 years. “I needed to heal from suffering depression that was a lifetime task to cure. I had no intention of being a healer. I am my own walking testimony.”

#Heisel explains to her client she will use a rattle, a drum and stones to open up all of the chakras, lift up the luminous bubble. “This is not a religion; it works with the energy of the body and dates back 50,000 years; it’s in every culture.” She continues, “A lot of people associate it with Reiki, but I feel it goes deeper.” Heisel works with past lives, where parts of the soul have gone into hiding, and seeks to free the person to be what they were intended to be.

Healer

#She explains the person may feel tingling sensations to almost convulsions to a filmstrip as past lives march by. Floating, nothing, sinking into the table. It doesn’t matter. The person may feel nothing on the table but be emotional days later.

#The client takes off her earrings, shoes and lies on the table covered with a soft lavender sheet. A bandana is placed over the eyes to block out the light. Heisel sprays a mist of sage back and forth over the table to clear the space so she can begin. The rattle shakes in her hand. “See you at on the other side.”

#Heisel carefully places rocks of different sizes and shapes in a line up the person’s body. In a moment Heisel waves a large feather through the air to open up all of the person’s chakra points to clear out the body first before moving into past lives. It takes just a few moments to pull it out. Then Heisel connects with the ankles to show what is going on with the aura. She explains, “There is heavy energy in the feet.”

#Heisel shuts her eyes and stands still in the room. Back to the rattle. “It is still clearing. I like to do a deep clean and pull healing energy to the chakra points.”

#The large drum begins slowly … boom boom BOOM “to shake a lot of stuff free that doesn’t respond.” Heisel’s left hand is raised in the air to bring in the good energy. “You don’t want to leave the chakras empty. This takes out the bad and replaces it with a beautiful light.” If the body is balanced the energy will come through.

Healer

#The second part of the ceremony is the trauma timeline ceremony “with all of these old souls to help move through the timeline as quickly as possible so you can get as many swaths as possible.”

#Heisel waves a smoky quartz over the client’s body and places large deer antlers tightly wrapped with copper over the abdomen. “Copper is a good conductor. I just learned about this part of the ceremony several years ago. Guides come in to teach me something for a year and then move on. A lot of people are working right now. Breathe out.”

#Heisel waves the crystal in circles above the antlers. Fffffft. The wind blows through the room, which helps move the trauma up and out. Heisel strikes a tuning fork and holds the reverberating sound near the person’s head to help balance the brain. Finally she shakes the rattle up from the stomach with a final burst. An essential spray ends the ceremony to leave a nice smell at the end.

#The person’s toes wiggle under the sheet. Heisel brings her back into the room and asks what she has experienced.

#“My arms and fingers were so heavy.” Heisel says, “You are going deep.”

#“When you placed your fingers on my body, they were hot like fire. I could feel the energy moving down through my body.”

#The person stares at the deer antlers. “I couldn’t imagine what was on my body.”

#“I felt ooooooooh I was going up in the air. I had two bodies, one was above me. I fought it because I wanted to keep control.” Heisel says, “Your body is floating.”

#The client added the boom boom BOOM wasn’t very pleasant. Heisel says, “It was shaking things loose.” Heisel advises the drum takes a lot of stuff out so drink a lot of water. She adds, “Your guardians go out with you and continue to work on you the next few days. Heisel says, “The goal is to give them the healing they are meant to get. I’m just the conduit.”
