Do you live today like it is the most important day of your life? Do you do things that matter daily? What did you tell someone today that will be remembered about you for the rest of their life if tomorrow never comes? What was the last thing you said yourself before falling asleep – you are essential, something uplifting and encouraging?

Words and actions create your life story in the eyes of others. Words and thoughts create your life when they are in your mind. And, they either improve your physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing or contribute to your downfall.

In the world of Feng Shui, things in your surroundings matter because they either provide you positive, uplifting, encouraging energy or negative, depressing, discouraging energy. Stuff in your surroundings are easier to deal with than thoughts in your mind and words because you can see things; the more positive energy things you surround yourself with, the better your prosperity, abundance, and wellbeing become.

The same applies to the way you live your life – do you make every day count – are your thoughts always uplifting and encouraging – do you tell yourself every day you are great – even when things aren’t going so well? Or do you tell yourself you are a loser – confirming to yourself that you are not worthy of having a full well rounded, abundant life?

Since Feng Shui is all about the use of positive energy in your environment and helps you create less stress filled calmer more abundant life, its principles are the perfect way to improve your overall wellbeing.
