Some of the most frequent comments on my blog come from people who are happy doing exactly the opposite of the particular Feng Shui enhancement I’m recommending.
Essentially they want to know, “How does keeping the offending item or arrangement affect me?”
Is it necessarily a bad thing to ignore the Feng Shui recommendation?
For example Dalia wrote recently in response to my post about the best Feng Shui locations for mirrors, that she has a mosaic-style mirror and loves it, even though she’s been told that it’s “bad” to have one.
In my reply I told Dalia that if she likes her reflection in the mirror and feels good about herself in general, then there’s no need to make a change.
But if Dalia ever begins to feel uncertain or “fractured” inside, she may want to put that mirror away for awhile until her sense of wholeness returns.
When it comes to making Feng Shui adjustments, less is often more: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Going overboard with Feng Shui adjustments can be just as ill-advised as paying no attention to your environment at all. Feng Shui is very much about balance and paying attention to what is happening in your life right now.
Make the adjustments that correspond to that reality alone: whatever is making you feel uncomfortable should change, no more, no less.
