Clean Your Windows, See Life Clearly
Imagine yourself sitting in your favorite chair, a good book in your hands, steam from a fresh cup of tea curling up through rays of sunshine streaming into your house. Life is good. The sunlight illuminates and enlivens your living space like no electric light ever could. According to the ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui, a system of interior design to maximize energy flow, the sun is one of the most powerful sources of chi, or lifeforce, and the sunlight streaming through your clear and unobstructed windows brings chi into home.
Dirty windows can block up to 40% of sunlight, choking off energy into your home. Imagine what your life might be like with 40% more energy!
Feng Shui is built on the principle of universal self-similarity, and each part of your house has it’s corresponding part of the body. The windows, for example, represent the eyes and mouth of its inhabitants: the passageways energy comes into and out of the house. In life, this can translate to the clarity with which you see and communicate in the world. In the same way that deep cleaning your refrigerator or bathroom can somehow leave you feeling energized and lighter, cleaning your windows can help your ability to communicate with others, and clarify your perception of situations and decisions, and clear the way for your inspiration to shine forth.
It is said the eyes are the windows to the soul, and according to feng shui the windows of your house are the eyes of your house. Keep them bright and shining!
