In Feng Shui, a system of laws considered to govern spatial arrangement and orientation in relation to the flow of energy, the kitchen is considered a power center. It represents both health and prosperity. The concept of Narrative Space Feng Shui is simple: your home and in particular your kitchen is telling a story, your story. Every object in your environment is a physical affirmation of your present situation.
Your kitchen is one of the most important “power centers” for your personal “chi” or energy in Feng Shui. It is where you nourish yourself and your family. Feng Shui is more than a practice, but a physical language that allows you to have a positive relationship with your environment and your personal chi (energy).
I’m going to share my top 5 tips for enhancing your kitchen’s energetic potential.
Stock the Fridge
Have a fully stocked fridge with fresh produce and healthy ingredients. This symbolizes abundance and health and in turn supports your abundance and well-being.
Let it Burn
Utilize all of the burners on your stove equally as they represent metaphorical sources of abundance. By using all of them, you tap into all of your financial resources. Try to use your oven and any other heat sources with some regularity to include all potential resources.
Place a mirror over your stove to multiply the number of burners (sources of income) and put yourself in what is called the power position while you cook. This allows you to see what’s going on behind you all the while enhancing your abundance potential.
Keep your counters clean and clear of non-essential items. You can have items like your coffee machine out if it’s something you use every day, but try to organize and store those things that don’t need to be cluttering up your counters. This creates energetic space and healthy chi (energy) for your kitchen.
Cook and prepare food, especially food from scratch, to stimulate abundance and health. You can literally cook up abundance this way!
If you follow these tips and treat your kitchen as sacred space for prosperity and health, you will have your own personal oasis. Remember to keep your space clean and clutter free and think about what your story is and how your space is reflecting that.
“Your wealth is in your health” as they say, so think of your kitchen and nutrition as a form of abundance. The cool thing about Feng Shui is that it empowers you to take an active and conscious role in what your story is going to be.
