Feng Shui in Action

As I've been cleaning and decluttering, I've tried to keep the Feng Shui BaGua in mind. I've discovered that my older daughter's room is in our Wealth and Prosperity section--her cluttered, dusty room in which we found a piece of moldy food attached to a dollar bill! That ain't good Feng Shui!

Other discoveries ... the Love and Marriage section of the basement is ... my junk room! The Love and Marriage section of our bedroom contains ... my husband's hobby magazines and a pile of totebags. Health is located about where my very disorganized pantry is.

Now, lest you think my whole house has only bad Feng Shui, the Children and Family area is about where all the toys tend to end up. :-)

I just finished this book on Feng Shui. It felt very helpful, but I do wish the author had given more details on what to use to fix areas that need work.


One important thing to remember: always make sure you have the permission of those living in the space to move their stuff before you do so! Luckily, I read this in the above book before moving any of husband's things. I asked permission, and he granted it. Let the moving commence!

I want to leave you with this quote from Fast Feng Shui:
"Stop thinking of cleaning up your clutter as a tremendous chore, and start thinking of it as one of the most effective feng shui tactics available to you. Every magazine and piece of paper you recycle, every book you give to the library, every item of clothing you release to a new owner creates space in your life for new energy, joy, activities, and companionship to come in. "

Will you come feng shui my house? Is it bad to have recyled garbage spread through your house as purported "art supplies that must never be thrown away?" Is it anti-shui to have your TV in your bedroom? Is it not so feng shui to be missing a bathroom door or two?

I'm thinking I'm going to be needing a lot of help.
