In this article Naja Li explains how your how your heart corrects the energy of your home. Whilst other Feng Shui styles recommend the use of ‘cures’ such as wind chimes, mirrors and so-called lucky objects to ensure the smooth flow of energy, in Li Feng Shui your heart is the ‘cure’.
1. Why did you publish the incense recipes?
Yes, these incense blends are the intellectual property of the Li tradition – and so are the reasons for their composition – but I published them so that you can use this knowledge to your advantage. I had originally intended to supply readers with a range of esoteric incense but time and place are not right. In the future I will use these blends in my healing centre but until then…it’s over to you.
The Li tradition of Feng Shui refers to people as ‘beings in light’, or being as ‘one with light’ – but what does this mean? Naja Li provides a workable definition for this key concept that also provides a context for understanding practices such as Tai Qi and Qi Gong. Li Feng Shui offers a very ancient way of looking at the world but this view of the world doesn’t make sense if you don’t grasp one key concept: that we are beings in light. And not just that we are beings in light, but this light is love. Now whilst some people will read this as just nice words, there will be others who would like to use this understanding to open up a new way of thinking. So how can this phrase ‘beings in light’ be meaningful for what see in front of us – fingers on keyboards, hands clutching cups of tea? And what does it have to do with Feng Shui?
Maybe you have noticed the inequality built into our wellness and spirituality industries? How, increasingly, non-religious spirituality is the preserve of people who can afford a ‘lifestyle’? The problem here is not the fact of spiritual books, yoga classes and the now-obligatory retreats, each of them lovely things in their own way. The problem is the perpetuation of models of spiritual perfection which say that any of these are necessary. For now it is increasingly common to learn that peace or spiritual perfection depend on perfecting meditation skills, getting quantum healing or having homes with good Feng Shui.
Naja Li uses the gift of clairaudience to bring you her Guide to Talking to Trees – a unique understanding of Feng Shui and its connection to nature, including a special part played by trees. This understanding of Feng Shui comes from a time when approaches to health and sickness, living and dying were one. This is the first in a series of three short ebooks, all of which are free and available to download here.
In this article Naja Li presents a crucial distinction between earth and spiritual life. She discusses why ‘Things don’t happen for a reason’ and considers a historical framework for understanding the Li tradition.
