SPACE & Feng Shui

POSTED BY Cathi Hargaden July 5, 2014 IN Podcast, wealth | No Comments


Space – have you ever craved space around you, space from crowds, more space within yourself where peace resides?

Across all the major cities of the world people are crammed in tight like sardines with no space to swing a cat because the values of such real estate are overwhelming to most people. People are pulled to spaces where there is a special vibration.

How do you generate a special vibration in any room?  Have you noticed how certain places affect you in a brilliant way and then other places revile you? In our everyday life do you focus on the object or do you focus on the space around it? Whenever there is a space people usually want to fill it with something.  I have noticed how people can feel very uncomfortable having too much space as it shows them up almost like a shining a light on themselves.

This is even discomforting to most thats why they choose to surround themselves with objects, people, IT devices and food, drugs, toys and as you know the list is endless. So, what would happen if you discovered more space around and within you than ever before?

Would that give you a perception that is completely different from the one you have now? How does it feel to empty the cramped space you have now and often people tell me they can breathe, manouvre and see things differently. Less room for anxiety, fatigue, frustration.

I just came from an office where personal space was so minimum as the flavour of the office now is hotdesking.  People feel all at sea when they hot desk and quite disorientated as their  surroundings psychologically can be invaded at any time. So, its not just physical space as perceived by the eye but space in time too. How many gaps are  there in your world of Time? Is every minute registered for doing?  Are there any gaps?

Are there any silences in that space? What colour is introduced, textures, sounds, aromas, designs because ultimately you are responsible for what is invited into your personal space? Are you repsonsible for the vibrational energy exuding from you around  your body?

I know more questions being asked and answers? Well get back to me as if conversation is stimulated from this topic then more space to discuss this essential dimension in our life.

Space in Pots

POSTED BY Cathi Hargaden July 2, 2014 IN Podcast, Space | No Comments


Space in Pots – space in cups……..remember the Zen master teaching the student who wanted to discover more about himself?

What did the Zen master say to him?  your cup is overflowing and there is no space to receive anymore!


A significant lesson for us all especially where we are encouraged to consume as much as possible on many different levels.  How can we create a space within us?

The pots above with nothing in them are a reflection back to ourselves – what lies deep within us all?

It is our interaction with that space that determines our quality of life.

Ever been going down a motorway and as soon as there is a space people want to fill it.  Its like the places we reside –  like space within us the only difference is in the pots above there is plenty of space but within people there is none – we keep consuming, digesting absorbing, that we are a mesh of networks but as the Dalai Lama once said; plenty in the  windows but nothing in the shop!

The other concept about space in pots is that they are a subtle reminder of connecting with the deeper aspect within us.  When we have space in our lives, in our pots we can invite new things into our lives.

When the pots are full and brimming there is no room for new people, ideas, to enter in……..

Pots that are empty invite an energy to enter a zone – its that receptive part of us; the part that isnt pro active, but waits and watches, is open to receiving because sometimes it is that part of us that doesnt know how to receive but only gives that stops us from receiving the very gifts of life we pursue.
