we’ve come a long way, Gibby! this throwback post dates back to 2010 – WHOA!!! and guess what? the list is just as fresh and still gives me all the smile!
you say you want to Feng Shui? here are my go-to basics you can work with whenever and wherever:
clear the clutter. go for a drawer, a closet, a nook…just get started.
replace or fix anything damaged, leaking, clogged, squeaking, burned out, dead, or broken. Immediately. these represent “hang-ups” in life.
open windows a few minutes each day. it is like a changing of the guard, allowing the old out and welcoming in the new.
make your front door inviting. energy goes where attention goes.
clean your stove and everything around it. your stove and oven symbolize prosperity. keep it sparkling clean and use the burners as much as possible.
buy fresh flowers and live plants for your space. these are powerhouses. replace when/if they die. anything living in your space, as long as it is thriving, brings in natural vitality.
keep things more than halfway full. this is a very simple way to signify abundance.
stimulate all 5 senses within a space whenever possible. imagine a soft rug underfoot – touch, a scented candle burning – smell, a gorgeous bouquet of flowers – sight, a song you love playing softly – sound, and a cool drink close by – taste. when all 5 senses are heightened, it is a very good thing.
cultivate space that reminds you of personal, professional, or lifelong goals. Feng Shui is a conversation in environmental metaphor – which means your surroundings can both keep you focused on what you desire and diminish negative thinking.
the very most important component in Feng Shui is Y-O-U. if you feel love and joy, your energy radiates out into the world, returning the same to you plus interest. every time. xo
