Ask That Feng Shui Lady
A reader asks:
‘I have only just become aware of Feng Shui and it sounds very interesting indeed. I’m moving to a new apartment in a few months and I think it would be a good idea for me to ask for a Feng Shui consultant to call to see me in my new place.
But in the meantime, I was wondering if there are any quick fixes that I can use on my current apartment before I move? Have you got any ideas for me?’
I sure do! And moving is the best time to get your shui started!
The purpose of feng shui is to guide energy to bring you health, happiness, and good luck in general. But the energy can’t get where it needs to go if there is any clutter in its way. So when you’re packing to move, throw away anything you don’t absolutely need or love.
Many people make the mistake of packing everything and figuring they’ll throw stuff away when they move in…which I promise you, they don’t! And what they bring is the energy, dust and “clutter” that they had in their last place.
Use packing as an excuse to start fresh. When you’re going through your things ask yourself these three questions.
- Do I LOVE it / does it bring me joy? Keep in mind that memories do not equate love. Be careful that you don’t hold memories that don’t serve you
- Do I NEED it? And if I NEED it … when is the last time I USED it? (A-HA!)
- Does it represent my current hopes, dreams and visions. Holding on to old accomplishments can keep you from achieving new ones.
Starting fresh in your new home is the best way to invite healthy, vibrant energy into your life.
