Feng Shui Friday : Yin/Yang in the Home
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art used to improve the flow of energy (chi) through your home. When you improve the Chi in your home, you affect all areas of your life. The most obvious are family, relationships, and your personal energy system – your body, mind, emotions, and Spirit. But in Feng Shui each area of the home corresponds to every other area of your life – wealth, love/marriage, study/knowledge, relationships, career, etc. As you improve the flow of chi in the rooms of your home you also improve the energy flow in your life.
The first thing we do as Feng Shui Consultants is to look at the clutter in your home. Clutter can be anything that’s unorganized, broken items, unused objects, or even unresolved issues.
Begin to bring a positive flow of chi in your home by doing at least one thing every day to de-clutter. Allow yourself to accept that you can’t control your life by holding onto things. As in all healing, the relief comes in the act of letting go.
Do one thing today to de-clutter your home environment:
– Bring a broken item for repair or if it’s unrepairable – be willing to let it go!
– Spend 5 minutes cleaning out one draw in your dining room.
– Organize a bookshelf in your living room.
– Have a box for each family member for keepsakes – cards, letters, artwork, awards, badges etc. Encourage family members to update their own box once a year.
-Un-clutter your mind. Have a note book just for your ‘to do’ list. It really clears your mind space to write down all those little things you’ve been meaning to get done this week.
-Talk to your spouse or child about an issue that’s unresolved between you.
I’d love to hear what you did to clean up your chi!
Notice how it lightens your personal energy, space and relationships.
