Create a Space for Releasing Pressure with Crystal Feng Shui
Pressure is something many of us deal with on a daily basis whether from work, school, family, or our relationships. Often it builds up and causes tension, headaches, and further stress. So, here we’re going to talk about how to create a space for releasing pressure with crystal feng shui. Specifically, we’ll talk a little about why you should deal with this pressure and then offer tips on creating your special space.
Why is Releasing Pressure Important?
The pressure we feel in our lives causes continued stress which is terrible for our health. Stress symptoms may already be affecting your health, even though you might not realize it. You may think illness is to blame for that nagging headache, your frequent insomnia, or your decreased productivity at work.
However, stress may actually be the culprit. Indeed, stress symptoms can affect your feelings, your behavior, your thoughts, and even your body.
Being able to recognize your stress symptoms can help you get ahead of managing them. Stress that’s left unchecked can contribute to many health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, and diabetes.

Releasing pressure and stress should ideally be done with meditation in the Wisdom Gua. This area is wonderful for meditation, quiet, stillness, and introspection. It represents higher thought, understanding, intuition, meditation, and spiritual growth. It can also offer us the skills essential to achieve these things. Since the energy in the Wisdom Gua is so gentle and quiet, it is the ideal area for studying, learning, and meditation. This, in turn, promotes the skills needed for accomplishment in all aspects of life.
This area is also ruled by Earth Energy. Earth energy is the energy of stability, patience, honesty, balance, and resourcefulness. It is our home energy, the energy of the ground upon which we live.
The energy of the mountains, the plains, the shore, and the valleys. It is our center, our holdfast, our home in the black cold universe.
The Wisdom Gua is traditionally located in the Northeast area of your home. This is generally located on the same wall as the main entrance in the left corner (if you just entered the room).
