Feng Shui remedies for body parts

In general, Feng Shui offers no special means of fighting diseases. Instead of this, it helps to create a beneficial, peaceful environment, in which you will stay healthy. For example, the Great Sun Buddha Meditation is an excellent means of reinforcing your personal chi, and, as a result of this, also your health. It also helps you avoid the situations that can put your health in danger, for example, the electrical radiation.


Although there are no remedies for precise illnesses, Feng Shui remedies work on separate body parts. Every important body organ is linked with a certain element. When you have problems with this organ, you probably lack the nourishing of a certain element, or you live in the surroundings where the element that controls it, dominates.
Here is how the elements of Feng Shui can fortify certain body parts.

Heart

Fire is a heart element. Every symbol related to fire is also associated with heart (the red color, the summer season, candles, triangles, bright light). If your house lacks fire energy, reinforce the health of your heart, by adding to the environment more of fire symbols: candles, triangles and pictures of summer. Include red color in the décor and add some orange and yellow hints. If there is too much fire, put it down with water energy.

Some products contain symbolic fire energy. To reinforce the health of the heart, eat “red” products, such as tomatoes, strawberry, red peppers, red cabbage, shrimps and lobsters.

Lungs

Lungs are associated with metal, probably, because of the conducting ability of the metal - lungs constantly transform oxygen into carbon dioxide. Help your lungs accomplish their work by fortifying the symbolism of metal in your life. Add to your surroundings more white and metallic colors. Accentuate the décor with metallic objects. Metallic clock with a pleasant ticking sound and chime can be especially useful because of the material and the rhythmic ticking that reminds of breathing and moving chi.
Also, it can be useful to enrich your ratio with products that have the symbolism of the metal: chicken, potatoes, fish, meat and egg.

Liver

Thanks to its cleansing function, liver has the association with spring and renewal, and as a result is linked to the element of wood which is also the element of spring. Fortify your liver with green plants and the energy of wood. Decorate your rooms with blue and yellow colors. Include high stretching forms in it: vertical lines, tall statues and figures, high furniture.
Diet including dishes with strong energy of green plants and wood is beneficial for the liver: eat spinach, broccoli and peas.

Stomach

Since stomach plays a great part for our health - probably because it has a central place in our body, it is associated with the earth - the same element that rules tai ci - the center of the house.
Get rid of digestion problems with the help of the symbolism of the earth: yellow, golden, hazel and other earthly tones and colors. Use square or rectangular forms in the décor. Enrich your diet with earthly food: yellow porridges, carrots and eggs.

Attention! Nothing of what has been said here can replace the medical advice of your personal doctor. If you suspect that you have health problems, see your doctor. Follow your doctor’s advice even if it contradicts to what has been mentioned here. Symbolic remedies are an aid to your body in its normal state.

Great Sun Buddha meditation

This simple technique cleanses and reinforces your chi energy. You will also benefit a lot using this meditation on a regular basis.
Stand in a comfortable position and turn your face to the Sun. Stretch the palms of your hands up. Imagine, that the energy of the Sun flows into your body through your palms and through your third eye in the sixth chakra in the middle of your forehead (this energy center regulates dreams, wisdom, imagination and spiritual vision).
Repeat this meditation, visualizing how the sunlight travels through your body down to your feet, then quickly up and outside through your palms and the third eye. Lower your arms.
Now imagine that the energy reaches your feet, moves up gradually and intentionally, rolling through every organ, taking all the pain and illnesses away and flows out through the third eye and the palms of the hands.


Om mani padme hum is the mantra of Buddha. "It is very good to recite the mantra Om mani padme hum, but while you are doing it, you should be thinking on its meaning, for the meaning of the six syllables is great and vast... The first, Om symbolizes the practitioner's impure body, speech, and mind; it also symbolizes the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha. The path is indicated by the next four syllables. Mani, meaning jewel, symbolizes the factors of method: (the) altruistic intention to become enlightened, compassion, and love. The two syllables, padme, meaning lotus, symbolize wisdom. Purity must be achieved by an indivisible unity of method and wisdom, symbolized by the final syllable hum, which indicates indivisibility. Thus the six syllables, om mani padme hum, mean that in dependence on the practice of a path which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech, and mind into the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha". -- H.H. Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama, "Om Mani Padme Hum".

      Thanks, greatstuff. Yes, yin and yang balance is fundamental in any aspect of life, including health. The hub is about balancing five elements for better health, but yin and yang should not be neglected, either.

      Thank you for this. If I may add, Feng Shui is also about getting the correct balance between the yin and yang (opposite forces) and when this happens, there will be harmony, hence health and happiness, etc. Voted up and useful
