A Spiritual Awakening Center

Did you ever notice that when something happens that captures your full attention - for example, you lose your job, get sick, or have a hitch in a major relationship - or you get married or get a big promotion - while you are working out the details of the upset, all the rest of your life seems to fall apart.
By the time the adjustment period is over, it takes weeks for you to restore balance to your everyday experiences.
Nature continually seeks balance - but we're seldom taught as children exactly what that means. The ancient Chinese Art of Placement, called Feng Shui - a Spiritual practice which is over 3,000 years old - recognizes the need to maintain positive energy in 9 major areas of our life and our environment for the purpose of maintaining balance at the physical, emotional and mental levels at all times. .
By creating a Balance Box like the one above - and checking in with it regularly to see if you are giving some attention to each of these major areas of your life experience, you will save yourself from ever feeling out of balance again.
HOW TO USE YOUR BALANCE BOX
Visiting your Balance Box several times a week will be all you need to do to maintain a balanced life experience.
Sit quietly, breathe and center your attention on your Balance Box.
Begin by drawing a mental line between the center square - where God is represented - and then draw a mental line from the God square to each of the other squares - one at a time.
Example - God to Wealth. Begin by giving thanks for all the wealth you have in your life right in the present moment - large or small. Then give thanks for all the weath you've ever drawn to you (mentally add up your pay checks from the first to now and be amazed at how much money has flowed through your hands). Finally, give thanks in advance for whatever wealth you wish to accumulate in the future.
Repeat this exercise for each of the areas on your Balance Box - the entire exercise should not take more than 10 minutes. By focusing on balance at least three times a week, however, you will begin to live a much more satisfying life from now on.

Money is simply a commodity of exchange - but wealth is an energy of growth and appreciation and satisfaction. Keeping some attention on what is attracting money in your life - some to save, some to give and some to spend - is essential to your well-being
Most people would deny that fame and recognition is important to them, but they would be wrong. It is part of our human nature to be as good as we can be at many things and to be recognized for our accomplishments. Ignoring that need is hurtul
All human beings require an element of love in their lives - both given and received. To pretend otherwise is self-defeating. Making sure an exchange of love and caring takes place regularly assures a much happier life than on that runs from low to high and back again on love.
Creativity- frequently expressed - is essential to our growth process. Perhaps you are not a painter or a writer or a dancer of an actor, but you do create every elEment of your future - including the home you choose, the job you do, the hobbies your pursue, the places you travel and the good deeds you do. All those things are better because of your unique creativity.
5) HELPFUL PEOPLE
No one is entirely independent - we all have armies of people working on our behalf every day - and life works best when we attract the people we need on purpose. Not only our friends, family members and employees help us to live comfortably, but so do doctors, dentists, plumbers, roofers, landscapers, clergy - all sorts of people who make our lives feel fuller, more comfortable and more satisfying.
6) LIFE PATH
Your life path, and how often you plan where you want it to take you, will make the difference between living your life by accident or design. Knowing where you're going and paying attention to where you've been are imporant - but so is enjoying the path as it is right now - the only moment in which you are truly alive.
We are all naturally Spiritual, all connected energetically to the same God - however the more often we acknowledge that connection and take steps to deepen our awareness of it, the more glorious our live experience becomes.
A wise man said, "If you don't take care of your body, where are you going to live?" Good question. This square in your Balance Box reminds you to make wiser choices in the care and feeding of your body temple, so that it will remain clean and pure and healthy for as long as we need it
9) THE ETERNAL LIFE FORCE
God, or The Eternal Life Force is represented in the Center square by the little ELF - short for Eternal Life Force. All of the other attributes that are necessary for balance eminate from that center square.
