This time, we’re brainstorming about gates, gateways, and energetics. So, where is the most beautiful gate you’ve ever seen? Was it modern or ancient? What was it made of? Was it the gate to a home, or a hotel entry gate? Was it a vintage City entry gate? What purposes did it serve? How did you feel as you gazed at that gate? Gates are used mainly for security, to impress, or to commemorate something. They are also used as entryways, to welcome guests.
The most impressive gate I have ever seen is the Stargate from the movie and TV show of the same name. An ornate circle of “nahquadah” perhaps 20 feet across, the Stargate allows the good guys to travel out or arrive, transferring quickly between planets. People jump into its circumference, and they are conveyed instantly. Now consider the gate to your yard. It allows you ingress and egress for people and packages, and it keeps out some people and dogs you might not want straying into your yard. In Feng Shui, your gate has energetics, which vary by its placement and appearance. It is important to keep your gate in good repair, and to keep it lovely, if possible. Now look at the next two pictures.
Both show the same gate, first in pieces, and then after repairs. Which gate would you rather have? Which is more pleasing? Which one has better energy? Obviously, the “after” gate is more pleasing and has better energy. That one will help energize your yard. It will draw in great energy, perhaps vitality, great relationships, and prosperity.
If you have been drawing in distractions, wrong turns, repeated illnesses, or untrustworthy associates, you have LifeGatesm Stress. So, what about your mental gateways? How effectively do they protect your Peace Within? What are your mental gateways allowing in? Are they welcoming vitality, great relationships, joy, and prosperity? Over time, you have learned to filter negative thoughts and not allow negative people to disturb your mental/emotional/spiritual peace. No doubt you are always learning better how to do this.
So on the flip side, what are you attracting? Would you like to learn a simple exercise to attract more? Today, you can design your LifeGatesm and install it in your mind. Ready? Imagine a beautiful gate, perhaps surrounded by lush plantings, or attached to a lovely wall made of stone. Make your gate of any material you like. Look in magazines, in Google Images, and in photo calendars for ideas. You can always adjust your gate later, in materials, height, width, thickness and color(s). When you have settled on your initial LifeGatesm, sit quietly for a few minutes, twice per day, and picture the energies you want flowing into your life through your gateway. Picture vitality entering. Picture your vitality arriving, then your prosperity, then any other qualities or energies you would like to have flowing in. Be in touch with your gratitude, which will strongly support the good conditions flowing in…and staying.
Call up the mental image of your LifeGatesm often, see it in vivid detail, and see the flow you want coming in through it. See the gate shut to negativity and takers. It’s your LifeGatesm. You are in charge. Maintain all the gates of your life for the Highest and Best. What will give you the best energy and the most of the life you want? That will center you in Upbeat Livingsm. Now it’s up to you.
