Feng Shui Design; Being in Balance at the Summer Solstice

The summer Solstice represents the mid-point of the year. In the Northern Hemisphere this brings the longest day of the year and the shortest night. At this, the most yang and expanded point of the year, it is very important to remain grounded, centered and balanced.

The central core of our living space is crucial to radiating balance and light into every area of our home. (See tips to enhance this area of your space below)

The Summer Solstice offers an important reminder for us to stop and take stock. Release what is no longer needed so that we can coast into the second half of 2022 open to all new possibilities and opportunities as they arise.

Tapping into the energy of 2022

As previously discussed, 2022 is a 5-energy year which marks the beginning and end of a cycle globally and encourages us to take stock. Like a “karmic report card” this year invites us to look at the consequences of our actions to date. Assess what we are happy with and what we can now change or let go of in favour of a new way of being.

Feng Shui for the centre of our home which represents health and unity:

  • This space offers us an opportunity to create focus and eliminate confusion.
  • Like the open palm of a hand ready to give and receive, this space is best kept as clear as possible.
  • Bring in light, bright elements (think of drawing in the sunshine) such as flowers and uplifting artwork.
  • Eliminate clutter which creates stagnation.
  • Create a bright and open space which will allow you to breath in new opportunities.
  • Physically, clean and clear this space often,  keeping the energy here “crystal clear”.
  • Eliminate stressors of any kind here, keep the energy healthy and vibrant.
  • Diffuse some immune supportive essential oils here (See some examples below)
  • Add some crystals to keep the energy clear and supportive (see examples below)
