While feng shui is concerned with our place, the spaces where we work rest and play. 9 star ki is concerned with time – where we are now in our lives, what is the energy of this year and how does that impact on my personal energy.
FENG SHUI SPEAKS TO THE IMPORTANCE OF PLACE AND OUR SENSE OF GROUNDED-NESS AND BELONGING IT IS CONCERNED WITH THE PHYSICAL AND BIOLOGICAL WORLD.
With feng shui we are absolutely concerned with the layout, orientation and design of our living and working spaces. We take into account the energy flow, colours imagery and material finishes and how every aspect of our interior design plays a part in how we feel about and interact with our space.
9 STAR KI SPEAKS TO THE IMPORTANCE OF TIME AND HELPS US TO TWEAK OUR FENG SHUI AND SPIRITUAL PRACTISE
There is another aspect of our energy that we can layer into this and that is the aspect of time. The time of year, the season, the times of day for example impact on the quality of light and heat and our energy. But there is also a cyclical pattern of energy that we can tap into called 9 star ki.
This is an ancient method of following the rhythm of the cyclical pattern of energy in the world around us and tapping into how that impacts on each of us personally.
WE EACH HAVE AN ELEMENTAL SIGNATURE BASED ON WHEN WE WERE BORN. THE TIBETAN WORD FOR THIS IS OUR “MEWA” OR BIRTHMARK – OUR CONSTITUTIONAL ENERGY.
For this purpose the solar new year begins on February 4th – I know! this week we have had a new moon and a Chinese new year which represents the lunar calendar but today we are at the solar new year which is the mid point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.
This year is a 5 energy year – the year when all of the elements return to their own “house”. In essence we all arrive home to ourselves.
5 REPRESENTS THE TAO – IT EMBRACES ALL OF THE OTHER ELEMENTS
IT OFFERS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A LIFE REVIEW ASKING OURSELVES HOW WELL WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED WHAT WE HAVE SET OUT TO DO
THIS IS THE YEAR WHEN WE CAN SEE THE CONSEQUENCES OF WHATEVER WE HAVE PUT IN MOTION
