FENG SHUI - Setting Intention

The importance of setting your intention when making corrections and enhancements is very important. It is said that feng shui without mysticism is like a body without a soul and setting intention adds that mystical element.

This means first that you have a clear intention of what you seek to accomplish when making the change. It's a good idea to take a few minutes to clear your mind, relax and visualize the results you're seeking. For instance if you are placing a tabletop fountain in your wealth position you'd want to set the intent that money is flowing to you and be thinking that as you place the fountain.

This would be true of other 'symbolic' items. If you place a fish (for success) in your career position you'd want to set that intent and so on.

It is also important that you instill your personal 'chi' on items when placed along with the intent. This is especially true when hanging mirrors or crystals as corrections. This also serves as a form of blessing you give before placing the item. All you need do is exhale on the item, thus instilling your chi while setting the intent for the result desired.

One of the most empowering ways to set intent for feng shui purposes is to create an affirmation box.

The directions are simple and are as follows:

1) Select a box that you're attracted to. Preferable one that is symbolic (i.e. angels would symbolize blessings)
2) Use a NEW pen (black or blue ink) and select paper that appeals to you (if seeking a love relationship you might choose a pink paper)
3) Write your desires while visualizing what you seek. (i.e. if seeking a mate ...list the qualities you'd want. Be as specific as possible) Note: don't be vague and say 'I want a mate' may get one but not one you really want!
4) End the list with one or more positive affirmations, a blessing or a prayer.
5) Fold the paper up tight, blow on it (instill your 'CHI') and place it in the box.
6) Place the box in the most appropriate position (i.e. marriage/partnership)
7) Leave it alone...don't look inside again until you're satisfied it's been fulfilled.

Seeing the box daily will be a visual affirmation that your wishes have been stated and given to the Universe.

This method is often recommended for people selling homes. Doing an affirmation box with the the qualities you wish for the new purchaser's family along with the realtor's card should be placed in the helpful people position in the living room or entry.
