Feng Shui for your food?

IMG_3394

I am very interested in the theories of Chinese Metaphysics and in this post I will write some information regarding the Yin and Yang, the Five Elements and how they are related to the food we eat. How can we use this information to help ourselves to create or maintain better health through eating the right food for us.

Yin and Yang is the very heart of Chinese metaphysical philosophy and Chi (or energy )is the element that we need to harness in Feng Shui. The ancient Chinese believed that Yin and Yang are the essences of nature. Everything is in a perpetual state of change, moving from one extreme to the other to create equilibrium or universal balance. The fact we cannot deny  is that, Yin and Yang exist in everything in the Universe.

It is interesting to know that the theories of Yin and Yang can also be found in food. According to Traditional Chinese medicine and Feng Shui philosophies, an imbalance of Yin or Yang in the body may contribute to the manifestation of health problems.

Along with the theories of Yin and Yang is also the Law of Exchange known as the Five Elements. They are elements that we can find and use in our everyday life: Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth.  Our body is also made up of the  Five Elements, and they are use associated with our five visceral organs. The Five Elements are also translate into colours, taste and style of cooking. Therefore eating foods with the colour and taste that represents the Element corresponding to the organ you wish to treat, combine with the style cooking of can help to create better a balance for your well being.

Yang Foods can replenish your chi, make you will feel warm and stimulated, and are especially good for people who often feel cold or are easily fatigued. Yin foods on the other hand encourage rest and recharging of energies. Physically you will also feel cooler and hydrated. Emotionally, you will feel refreshed and calm after eating these foods, therefore it is beneficial to those who find it hard to relax or are stressed.

However, having too much Yin quality food will lead to drowsiness, lack of energy, feeling chilly, water retention, or blocked digestion. Emotionally, you can feel depressed and lethargic.

Therefore eating a balance diet is the key to keeping you healthy.

Ran my Intuitive Tarot Workshop at Basic Essence today!

I started doing the Tarot since 1986, bought my first deck in Australia; since then it has become such a passion that in 2001 I started doing professional readings. At public events; like bazaars and shopping fairs I used to be such a novelty; I remember one time this child asked her daddy what was I doing, his reply was ” she thinks she is a Chinese gypsy!” Not that  it made any sense to the 5 year old child but I thought it was an interesting remark.

Throughout the past 12 years, there have been many requests for me to teach Tarot Workshops, somehow I didn’t get the calling to do so until this  year. In September 2013, I ran my very first Intuitive Tarot Workshop at the Reiki Centre in Joo Chiat. I had 5 participants, 4 ladies and 1 gentleman.  It was an intense yet fun afternoon enjoy by all.

On 30th November 2013, I ran my second Intuitive Tarot Workshop at Basic Essence located at Cluny Court; again I have 5 participants; 4 ladies and 1 gentleman.
