Feng Shui is a different language for good design – one that makes a home compatible with our intentions and desires. i encourage clients to punctuate their spaces with positive metaphors – personal style statements that get the energy humming. when we understand the implications of a good metaphor, we can contour the unique life we desire. if freestyling with metaphor has you intrigued, here are a few simple shui ideas that reverberate life affirming changes from the inside out.
if you are in a predictable pattern of feeling broke, look for clues. start with broken or chipped items (that you don’t use or LOVE), or things that conjure a “poor me” attitude. to deliberately create better opportunities, we have to inform the frequency around us. this is how metaphors get us to a higher ground. incorporate some gold into your space. keep the kitchen coffers well-stocked. whatever implies abundance to you is where the metaphorical magic begins.
when windows are dirty, it suggests we aren’t seeing things clearly. so, improve your outlook! whether indecisiveness has us in a headlock or we need to see the BIG picture of a situation, washing the windows clears away our confusion. likewise, if outdoor landscaping blocks a window view or suffocates the entrance, it could signify something is being hidden from us or we are being left out. raise your spirits by giving the yard a quick manicure, and it’ll simultaneously prune away those smothering obstacles.
looking for love, but coming up single? decorate with PASSION! partnership comes in twos, so make the most of this lovely metaphor in the bedroom: a pair of nightstands, two lamps, and an even scattering of bed pillows. allow physical space for love to show up – leave a few hangers in the closet empty and clear out a bathroom drawer. kindle unexpected possibilities with an extra toothbrush or stack of towels. and pay attention to photos and artwork around your nest – do they suggest “party of one”? consider a sabbatical from the solitary selfie, and garnish the walls with good company instead. xo
