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.

Feng Shui Tips for your Office

 

IMG_9946

One of the biggest issues in an workplace is clutter. Piles of paperwork, old magazines, old mail and files will plague the energy of your office causing unproductivity, dissatisfaction, stress, fatigue, and chaos. In severe cases,  it can cause you to become prone to illnesses and depression.

While selecting a good Feng Shui seat is not alway possible, you can also use simple  Feng Shui remedies to improve the energy of your space.

One important thing to avoid is, sitting at a desk that is located directly under an over-head beam or facing sharp pillars. I have seen such cases where the person seated in such a location suffer multiple problems and even illnesses. While you can apply remedies,  it will only reduce the severity of the negativity but not eradicate is. The only effective way to cure this Feng Shui issue is to move to another seat.  If you find yourself in such a location, it will be wise to ask for a change of desk location. If you are unable to move to another desk, you must try to position yourself away from the beam or angle away from the sharp angle of the pillars.

3  Feng Shui Tips to enhance your energy at the workplace:

  • Healthy potted plants in your office can help to uplift your energy and encourage calm.
  • Keeping your cubicle clutter free and tidying your space regularly will help reduce fatigue and stress.
  • Position your LCD to one of your favourable Feng Shui direction.

The Double Nine Festival or Cheung Yang Jie

The Ninth Lunar day of the Ninth Lunar month falls on October 17 this year. This is a special day for the ancient Chinese and still is for many today, as the number 9  is a special Yang number and  it is often associated with the Emperor.  Therefore, the Ninth  Lunar Day in the Ninth Lunar month is considered to be a super Yang and auspicious date.

The  Double Nine Festival’s main activity is  focused on trekking or walking up hills or mountains. It is believed that people can improve their health by taking part in the trekking or walking activities on this day. For me, this is indeed interesting, as 99 in numerology is classified as a Master Number,  and it is also sometimes described as the Eternal Master Number. There are also other information that suggest that walking up the hill or mountain on this day is a symbolic way of reaching new heights.

The Double Nine or the Cheung Yang  Festival is more popular in Hong Kong, Taiwan and China. It is not so widely celebrated in Singapore. I do not know why, but my guess is that it is probably due to the lack of hills and mountains here. With this in mind, if walking or treking on this day symbolically means reaching new  heights, perhaps we can subsitute the mountains by walking up some of the tall buildings in Singapore.  After all, in modern Feng Shui, we do substitute Mountains with Buildings.   Just a practical thought.  However, for those of you that really  wish to walk up a hill in Singapore on October 17,  you can always try  Mount Faber or plan to go on a climbing trip! 😀

Happy Walking on then Double Nine Festival and Good Health to all!
