    Imagination is needed to get out of the blues 

    Traumatic events or losses can lead to grievance or sadness that can be out of the ordinary. The trauma can come in one instant in an accident or the sadness can develope gradually like a burnout at work were you gradually are loosing your grip or a marriage that is breaking down over a period of time leading to the eventual divorce.

    When people find them selves in the blues then they are out of hope and they are not able see the future to be. All hopes and forward thinking is like a blank canvas. This is a breakdown on a mental and a physical level.

    Main thing is how do you roll up the canvas and stretch it out for you to paint in your hopes and future vision? One of the most effective ways to get out of sadness is the ability to visualize the future. This vision does not have to include a new car or a house. It does only have to include you in a contentment in any given situation at hand. For instance you at home in the evening, satisfied with what you have and not ruminating on what you do not have. If you exercise this setting in your life, you can easily in any given stress or sad situation during the day imagine you in this most favorable situation content at home, reading your favourite book and listen to your favourite music or whatever.

    If you have trouble in your family life, try out picture of you in the church when your child is getting married. Where are you? Are you sitting on the front bench or are you sitting at the back or even you are not invited, because you were behaving like a jerk in the year 2012. If you want to play the main act in that given situation, then you have to contribute to that every day and whenever you can.

    The difference from imagionation and daydream can be subtle, because daydreams can be unreachables but well structure imagination of your future is an obtainable act. The difference between imagination and goals is that goals are more conditioned situation, like: I will win if I exercise so and so. Imagination only needs you to visualize yourselve giving the best finish ever.

    Fishermen in old days had the vision of their home or the church, when they where wet and hungry fighting for their lives in the cold weather and high seas. The vision of coming home to their wifes and children never gave way and was everlasting source for energy.

    Without you using the power of your imagination, you will have much more work at hand and you need so much more time to overcome the sadness, the burnout at work, the traumatic events or the setbacks in your life.

    Bring Music to your life 

    Picture: UnnarYmir

    Music is important element in enhancing our spirit.

    Music has been with us for millennia and has been used in all kinds of ceremonies throughout.

    Listen to whatever you like and give all kinds of music a chance. Remember that to much Blues can bring you down to sadness.  Even that can be thrilling to understand the effect of music.

    Use some for traveling, other to go with your work and then your favorite soft music before you turn in for your sleep. Use your favorite Christmas songs and other in the summer. Today it is easy to have music in our portable IPods or radios wherever.

    Some parents play classical music for the children before sleep to calm them down.That is also quite effective during the day to use music and singing to enhance their mood. Some research has even shown that children who listen to classical music show better response in IQ tests.

    Music Therapy is aimed at enhance children’s attention, recognition, communication as well as other personal or social skills. Music Therapy has been showed  to help patients to help patients to reduce stress and relax (Guzzetta, 1989). Start your own music therapy to enhance your mood and bring contentment into your life systematically.

    If you have problems with sleep, then you can try to listen to soft music the last hour and see if your mood will not ease down and your train of thought will slow down.

    Remember how much music plays a part in most religious activities. Music is there to give deeper meaning to the ceremony and so could music do to you any time. So whenever you feel down, sorrow or at loss. Take a time to play your favorite music. Play music as often as you can during the day.

    Have your CD´s at hand so it is easy to pick your favorites out and play. Give all kinds of music a chance and try out soft music, playful music or music from foreign countries.

    Feng Shui as a proven route to wellness

    Empty bowl is important artifact in Feng Shui as it can contain whatever and is therefore a sign of ones own Contentment.

    For millennia there has been a focused attention on Feng Shui as a route to wellness and contentment. Feng Shui is based on nine meaningful issues that can be improved on, to improve your life situation and feel better. These elements are:

    • Awareness and increased ability to sense the environment. To empower and activate to progress your career in life.
    • Knowledge and all things that relates to learning and education. Wisdom evolves out of improved awareness and education.
    • Organize and exercise your ability to prioritize in your life. Who and what is important to you and your life. When your life is organized in harmony with your prioritizing it will be harmonious and your mental well being will improve. Without such a prioritizing your life will be chaotic and hectic.
    • Open up your possibilities and work on many possibilities rather than two or few. Your intentions will be aimed at your contentment and based on your prioritizing, that makes your choices wise and that elevates responsibility and encourages helpful people into your live.
    • Love and the empowered ability to choose and leave. It is important to exercise your skill to choose. Whether that is your mate and marrige or other things.
    • Creation whether that is your children, your work or hobbies. Increased ability in this field gives a great chance for quality time to feel well and take on difficult things like sadness, grievance or trauma.
    • Exercising or to have more flow and easier life. This can be money or ways to find easier ways to solve your issues.
    • Fame, good fortune and your standing in your community. For some this can mean a lot so if this is missing and it matters to you, then you have to attend to it. May your success make you feel good, but no regrets if it won‘t.
    • Good luck and contentment. The real meaning in life is to obtain contentment and happiness. Feng Shui shows us to fix elements that matter the most and at the same time to see yourself happy and content.

    The psychological meaning of Feng Shui is more of improving these elements in your life and enhanced ability in these areas will bring you wellness. It will help you to deal with losses, difficult times, burnout in work and other traumatic life events. It helps to turn around unfavorable life situations to more favorable ones.

    If you read about Feng Shui it is a good advice to take things with care, focus on your well being and how it can be improved and use Feng Shui advices and artifacts as reminder of that process, not to invest in things or improvement in your apartment. The idea of Feng Shui is not to bring on investment into your life, but to understand how these elements can enhance your life if attended to.
