As you may know, I believe personal mementos can be powerful Feng Shui cures. During a consultation, when I ask a client “Tell me about this [photo/painting/knick-knack]” and their face lights-up, I know I have just witnessed their personal Chi rise. Raising or enhancing your personal Chi is an important part of what Feng Shui cures do for you.
While traditional Feng Shui cures are great, personal treasures with powerful positive emotional associations and energetic impact are your best cures. They may already be in your home simply waiting to be discovered.
This article will briefly explore:
- The Power of photos and personal mementos
- The importance of up-to-date photos to celebrate your current blessings, and
- How to use the energy of the past and present to enhance the future.
In some clients’ homes I will see delightful photos of family, friends, and special places, but these photos are from years ago. When I ask if they have any current photos, I may get a genuinely puzzled response. Honoring the past is important, but you also need to actively celebrate you current blessings in the form of photos and mementos of the people, places and events you love the most.
Chi expresses itself in space and time. The Chi that radiates-off mementos of the past combined with the Chi connected to reminders of your blessings in the present creates a powerful energetic momentum for blessings in the future. I am NOT suggesting you turn your home into a gallery of photos or museum of mementos, but be conscious of having reminders of your present life blessings where you can see them and be aware.
As the holidays approach, this is a great time to plan for snapshots of your favorite people and events. Then, make sure to get those pictures out of your camera and off your computer to a local or online photo developer and display them!
On a personal note – I am on the hunt for a frame for a great photo of my brother and sister-in-law taken on a day trip to Santa Barbara. I look forward to again seeing their happy faces on that day.
