Agreed, it puts a lot of strain on a body. Especially “visceral” body fat, which is the non-surface fat that sits around your organs. Furthermore, it makes the blood thicker and as such harder for the heart to pump it forward. The heart not only has to pump on one end and “suck” on the other (by creating a vacuum in the chamber) in order to keep the flow, but it is also the only organ in the body that never ever gets a rest. I have a theory that if we naturally had two hearts, they would take turns, where one would stop for a bit and recover.
Another curious thing is that our lifespan apparently increases a lot by having a regular caloric deficit.
Either way, you got my point, true or not.
You and Hermit are both correct.
First, as far as Feng Shui goes, there have been scientific experiments that have indicated it works. A piece of fruit in a room with “good” energy doesn’t go bad, but dries up without rotting (lemons are sometimes used as a measurement tool for this), some rooms have people testify they sleep much more restfully compared to others, animals respond differently to different setups, even “strange” things like a candle flame being calmer in one room compared to another.
As far as the thought forms go, you are right that enough thoughts and beliefs could theoretically change the “money pig” idea. But you have to consider that we are talking not just what people believe now, but what they believe throughout time. Some words or spells as Hermit calls them (where do you think the word “spelling” comes from?) have been charged with belief and intent not just by millions of people, but by millions of people all throughout time.
Nowadays, there are not enough people to have an opposite belief to lessen the “energy” of that word or object. So the money pig may very well have been charged with intent by billions of people from eastern cultures. Our society simply isn’t interested in spending so much effort changing that energy, it merely ignores it. And so we can take advantage of all those focused beliefs and intents from the past and bring such a word or object into our house.
The above effect is quite evident if you are ever able to see into the astral plane. It is reflecting all the mental and emotional attachments we have created throughout history. Some have been made clearer throughout history by lot of generations, others (disaster sites like the Twin Towers) were created almost instantly by the combined thoughts of an entire world.
I think a Feng Shui module doesn’t have to be called such, but since SubClub does a lot to help us develop our intuition, a module that could help us develop a sense for how interior design helps us “flow” better and feel more at ease would work for many more people. We don’t have to call the module a wooden pig or a money frog, all we’d have to do is describe it in a way that sounds credible to the majority. Their own beliefs will do the rest.
Anyway, I’m going to be a bit of a hypocrite after that post and kindly ask we get back on topic now. Hermit has a thread where he loves to answer questions like that.
