Feng Shui

What is Feng Shui?  

Just like anything else there are different viewpoints on Feng Shui, such as why it is important and how you actually do it.  I am not an expert but I can say that I have dabbled in the ancient art in the past.  As I prepare to purchase a new home in Colorado I have started to take note of this way of being and living.The more authors I read one thing is becoming apparent, Feng Shui in my humble opinion is about listening to ourselves from a deeper place.  Yes, it is organizing furniture, not having beams and ceiling fans over your bed, bringing the five elements (fire, water, earth, metal, air) into your home for balance and keeping our foyers inviting but it is also about knowing what feelings arise when you enter a room and does the room reflect your inner longings and desires. 

When I think about bringing the art of Feng Shui into my home I think about what items bring me joy, which items have no significance and need to find a new home and how can I declutter and organize myself.

It appears to me no matter what you think or believe about Feng Shui wouldn't it feel good to be in a decluttered home with items you love.  If you believe in the benefits and you choose to add compass points, furniture placement etc. then you will see even more significant change in your life. That change comes from belief and belief brings energy and surrounding ourself with positive energy can only be reflected in our actions to others and ourselves.  

If you get a chance today, take a moment, look in each room in your home, look at your "stuff" and decide does this bring me joy.  If the answer is yes, you are there.  If the answer is no, grab a box and start filling it - you may be donating joy to someone else and that's got to feel good.

Wishing you Grace, Peace & Healthy Living,
