Internal Feng Shui is the practice of cleansing and balancing your energetic body. Miracles can’t come to you when your energy is full of blockages. Cleansing and balancing your energy systems helps you facilitate the flow of miracles with ease.
There are more methods for Internal Feng Shui than I can possibly put in this post but I am going to give you a few weekly practices to keep your energy right for miracle-making.
- Take a salt bath – use sea salt, epsom salt or table salt. You can also combine all 3 types of salts for more powerful results.
- Smudge your body and your space – take a bundle of dried sage (a smudge stick) and pass it over your body to cleanse your body of negative energies and then walk around your house and waft the smoke into every corner to purify the energy of your home as well
- Spend time in silence. Some call this meditation. I call it silence. You can go for a walk and leave your phone at home. You can turn everything off in the car for your commute. Whatever you choose, spend 20+ minutes in silence. This is an Internal Feng Shui practice that can be done daily and it will greatly enhance your miracle-making.
If you’re not into DIY energy clearings, you can schedule a session with me. It would be my absolute pleasure to work with you to clear out blockages in your energetic system so you can feel amazing again and let those miracles in.
There are many paths to healing and I believe forgiveness is the most direct path. Forgiveness is simple, highly effective and can be practiced anywhere any time. For the purpose of Miracle-Making, I recommend you practice forgiveness before bed. Think of it as an energy shower at the end of your day.
This energy shower is important because all throughout the day, you create separation and resistance. You get frustrated with your children, your boss, your coworkers, your clients, your beloved, your self, traffic, the clerk at the grocery store and the list goes on. When you get frustrated, you create separation and resistance, pushing your miracle further away from you. When you practice forgiveness, you’re dropping the resistance, bringing your miracle back to you.
For a quick meditation at the end of your day, sit quietly, take a deep breath, close your eyes and ask, ‘Where did I allow separation & resistance today?’ When you get your answer, offer forgiveness to those people and those situations until you feel a sense of peace. Seal your practice with these words, ‘I forgive this day. It is over and I give thanks for each blessing it held.’
We’ve all heard of the power of gratitude. So, what’s this extreme gratitude of which I speak? Well, it is the power to change your world, that’s what. How can I make such claims? It changed my world, that’s how. When I started this practice, I had 6 weeks to find a new space to live. As an adult person in a developed nation, this doesn’t seem a difficult feat, right? Wrong! I was depressed, which makes everything a difficult feat. Add to the depression single motherhood of not one but THREE minis, underemployment (I had a very underpaying freelance gig because I was too depressed to do more) and a lack of transportation and I felt pretty stuck. Within 3 weeks of starting my extreme gratitude practice, my entire living situation was resolved and what’s better, the solution came to me.
Most gratitude practices focus on the warm, fuzzy feelings or the heart swelling feelings. Extreme gratitude wants you to focus on the things that are broken in your life, the things that get on your nerves and the things that piss you off or leave you feeling heartbroken. Why? Because these are the things you desire to change and change will come through this powerful practice. The key is that you do not have to feel gratitude for the things. You simply need to write them down.
Here’s how extreme gratitude works: Everyday, within 30 minutes of rising, make a list of 5-10 things that are upsetting in your life. Your list should look like this:
Today, I give thanks:
- for oversleeping
- for my children not cooperating with me
- that I forgot to follow up with that promising client yesterday
- that I didn’t get the new job
- that I don’t know how I’m going to pay the rent
Remember, you don’t have to feel grateful for these things. You simply create your list daily and forget about it. What you will find is that feelings (frustration, anger, resentment) and situations (whatever’s not working) will miraculously find resolution.
If you would like a deeper explanation of this practice, pick up a copy of ‘Make Miracles In 40 Days‘ by Melody Beattie. This book is life-changing and it arrived in my life at the perfect time.
For added miracle power, be sure to practice forgiveness.
