The end of a long-term relationship may not feel like a time of fullness or gratitude.
Truly it’s a season of grief and loss. But the ashes of these feelings contain the warm embers of your own personal meaning for the words “wealth and abundance.”
Feng Shui gives you the opportunity to meditate on your abundance and begin to recover some of what’s been lost to you over the years.
In Part 1 of this series we looked at the idea of starting over, and the New Beginnings area of the Feng Shui Bagua Map.
The idea of Abundance is represented in the far left-hand corner of your home on the Bagua. This is the area to focus on whenever an abundant mood or happy memory of fullness and gratitude strikes you.
For example when I was going through the breakup of my marriage several years ago, I felt a craving for some of my most precious childhood things, especially the books that had “lit me up” when I was young.
It seemed that they just wouldn’t fit (!) into the apartment I shared with my husband, so they were some of the things I collected around myself just as soon as I moved into my new space.
In fact I was so grateful to have these books back in my life that I had a friend take photos of me holding them in my nearly-empty apartment.
And yes, that’s Alice In Wonderland you see there ;)!
I placed these photos in the Wealth area of my apartment, which happened to be in the bedroom. Each morning when I woke up I was reminded of the new abundance I was attracting in my new, self-designed life.
What kind of abundance did you leave behind or sacrifice during your marriage?
And how can you anchor your abundance in your space?
I urge you to use the power of Feng Shui to help you make these essential personal discoveries!
