You’ve enhanced the Bagua in every room, harmonized the Five Elements, and placed your furniture in optimal positions.
Why might you still be feeling stuck? Where could you possibly be missing out on giving yourself the benefits of good Feng Shui?
A Feng Shui Case Study
When I walked into my client Jackie’s home, it looked lovely and felt peaceful and calm (I’ve changed her name to protect her privacy).
She’d placed a water fountain near the front door, her furniture was arranged for good Feng Shui, and the Five Elements were nicely activated through color, shape and texture.
But Jackie was troubled. She wasn’t sleeping well and felt anxious and stuck about life and especially her personal relationships.
As I began to diagnose her home I discovered that while she is lucky to have abundant storage space, much of it was packed with things she had not used or even touched in years.
Outdated clothing, worn bed linens, books that would never be read … these were just some of the things that began to emerge as we “looked under the hood” of her home.
We started moving things towards the front door during my visit and by the time I left her space already felt lighter and brighter.
A few weeks later I received a wonderful note from Jackie saying, “I am happy to report that I have been sleeping very well since your visit, no medications necessary. This is remarkable since it’s been such a long time since I’ve been able to do this.
“I have followed most of your recommendations in my home and gotten rid of so many unnecessary things. It is amazing, the sense of freedom I am feeling!”
Are the “hidden” areas of your space your most stubborn stumbling block?
In Feng Shui every inch of your environment counts. As the saying goes, “There’s no hiding from Feng Shui eyes.”
Hidden clutter frequently symbolizes thoughts and emotions that you may be trying to hide from yourself.
What’s happening in your closets, behind the doors, underneath the furniture? Do you know what’s in your attic, your garage, your basement?
A good cleanup of the “out of sight” areas of your physical space brings relief to your inner self, helping you get unstuck and move easily forward into life territory you’ve been eager to explore.
