One of the greatest lessons I learned from my acupuncturist is that circulation heals. If you are stuck in any way in your life, you experience a lack of circulation. Even if we have air conditioner blowing our of vents, there is a simple way to “direct” the cool flow of circulating air and energy through your home: a fan!
A great fan (like the one above from Shabbylull on Etsy) can move air our of a stale corner, can be positioned to create a calming wave of breeze through an entire room, or can even purify the air in the kitchen or garage where we need extra circulation with all the combustion happening in those areas!
I am not a proponent of the idea that you should sleep with a fan blowing directly on you; I AM a proponent of the fact that a great fan can wake up the air in your bedroom before you go to sleep. Be safe with children, animals, people and fans: some are quite dangerous if they are not protectively covered and placed out of direct contact with little ones (and clumsy ones) amongst us.
Also: I loathe ceiling fans, especially over beds. Its a bad feng shui situation to have a propeller chopping up the air rapidly in a circle overhead in any area of your home, but the bedroom is especially bad news.
There are so many ways you can use a fan to symbolically and literally get things moving: give it a try today! Oh, and incidentally, there are fabulous vintage fans on Etsy! xoxo Dana
