Edgar Cayce, Feng Shui, 
and Mindfullness
By Peggy Joy Cross




The mind is the builder. How many times have we heard and read these words from the Edgar Cayce readings? Our minds form our thoughts, and from our thoughts come our actions, or sometimes lack thereof, and from our actions come our results—the life that we create in our work, our play, our abundance, our service, our friends--all that we perceive in the world of form.


“For mind is the builder and that which we think upon may become crimes or miracles. For thoughts are things and as their currents run through the environs of an entity's experience these become barriers or steppingstones, dependent upon the manner in which these are laid as it were…..” (Edgar Cayce Reading 906-3)



Myriad of options


Our thoughts are elements of creation. They are the seeds we sow for today, for this moment that will never again exist. We choose to be open or closed in our thoughts about what the universe presents to us as opportunities for guidance, learning, new experiences, service—a myriad of options that present themselves. When our minds and hearts are open, our experiences in turn generate further uplifting thoughts. This is a wonderful energy to offer to the universe as it will generate more of that same energy. This is the purpose of working with Feng Shui, to uplift our lives through the vibrations of our homes and ourselves and to share this with others.


However, sometimes our thoughts and the seeds we sow generate fear—a fear of lack, a fear of loss, a fear of the unknown, or perhaps useless thinking about the path not taken. Cayce said, “Fear is the root of most of the ills of mankind…” (5459-3) Our thoughts determine how we choose to perceive our world.


Our thought-filled minds are the source of our intentions, and paying attention to our intentions is at the foundation of the Black Sect Tantric Buddhist School of Feng Shui. In Feng Shui, the energy of our homes is seen and analyzed as a reflection of our inner self—our furniture, the color of our walls, our artwork, clutter or orderliness—they all have meaning. As within, so without. We choose those aspects of our lives we desire to enhance and shift and thoughtfully create our intentions and select objects to support those intentions. These might include artwork, mirrors, plants, candles, furniture, crystals, lights, wind chimes, fountains, flutes, and colors. Any object in your home or office to which you ascribe a special meaning can be utilized as one of these helpful reminders.

Color may be used to uplift, energize, or calm the emotional balance in a given room. Cayce said, “…the body mentally – and the body in its nerve reaction – would respond as quickly to color forces as it would to medicinal properties….” (4501-1) I have seen amazing and positive changes in romantic relationships as a result of the intentional use of pink and red.


BaguaModern schools of Feng Shui rely on the Bagua, a life map that is used in conjunction with our homes and offices to help us see literally and metaphysically what is going on in our lives (because our personal space is a reflection of our life). There are specific areas of the Bagua, called Guas, that relate to all aspects of life. In the center of the Bagua is the tai chi symbol representing eternal change and flow—the integration of yin and yang, the complementary balancing and integration of opposites. There is no light without the dark. There is no rigid without the yielding. Using the Bagua to consider our life helps us to consider ourselves as deeply as we choose our inner life, our outer life, our work and purpose, our relationships, and every aspect of our being. This center, the Ming Tang, represents health—spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health—unity, and balance of all aspects of our life.


Feng Shui principles are a guide to living a life of purposeful work, harmonious relationships within families and business, increased knowledge, abundance, creative fulfillment, service, and a deep connection to the Divine in every aspect our of lives. This connection is at the core of Cayce’s life and teachings.


Cayce also understood the importance of peace and harmony in our homes, saying:

“For, as has been indicated from the innate experience as well as from the longings within, a home—home—with all its deeper, inner meanings, is a portion of the entity's desire; to know, to experience, to have the ‘feel’ of, to have the surroundings of that implied by the word home! Is it any wonder then that in all of thy meditation, Ohm-O-h-m-mmmmm has ever been, is ever a portion of that which raises self to the highest influence and the highest vibrations throughout its whole being that may be experienced by the entity?” (Edgar Cayce Reading 1286-1)
