Feng Shui Friday


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.

An Un-Examined Life


Socrates said the unexamined life is not worth living.

Too severe?

Any attempt to bring your life into balance and any attempt to re-value your worth requires an alignment of both head and heart.

Have you examined your life?

What are your talents and are you using them? Why not?

Are you happy with your health, the way you eat, your marriage, your contributions, your social connections?

What are you doing everyday to move towards what you want?

Alignment is scared inner work.

Don’t skip the work of your mind space.

Being Kind Doesn’t Mean Coddling

You want to reach a goal – write a book, run a marathon, or lose 20 pounds.

You’ve learned to be kind and gentle with your self as you move through any process.

But kind doesn’t mean coddling.

Just because you don’t feel like doing something doesn’t mean it must be wrong for you or is unkind.

Going too easy on yourself is another way of lying, another path to self-deception.

Reaching your goals requires you to follow through.

Don’t coddle yourself out of the life you want.

Be willing to do what’s needed to realize your vision.
