Refresh Your Home

Spring is the perfect time to renew your home, garden and life. If you have been lacking the motivation to clear clutter or start a home improvement project, tap into the active energy of the season to jump-start the process.  Remember, as you shift your surroundings, you shift your life in the process. 

Spring is associated with the Feng Shui element of wood representing growth and expansion. Where in your life are you seeking greater expression?  Career, relationship or health? How can you symbolically shift this area of the bagua life map in your home to reflect this desire?   
One of my recent clients was experiencing a lack of passion and connection in her ten year marriage.  I visited the relationship area of her home, located in the master bedroom, and noticed the headboard was up against a window, a dog bed blocked her husband’s path to the bed, the walls were white (the same color as the rest of the house) and the TV was the focal point of the room. Based on a Feng Shui assessment, the room was energetically imprinted with a lack of support, blocked access, lack of intimacy and conflicting yin (rest) and yang (active) energies.  

The first step was to move the bed to a solid wall and relocate the dog bed. A sage green paint color was chosen for the walls (representing harmony and the heart chakra) and a pair of red accent pillows was recommended for the bed (the color of relationship and passion). Further suggestions included placing the TV in an armoire and adding aromatherapy candles as reminders of romance. The overall result was a nurturing space that supports greater intimacy for the couple.  

We are imprinted by our surroundings, for better or worse. The closer the environment is to you, the greater its impact on your wellbeing, which is why our homes are so important. This spring, consider making a few simple changes to shift the energy of your home and life:  

                                                            Home Exterior

Groom your landscape and porch.  Remove dead plants from garden beds and container pots and replace them with colorful flowers and plants.  Add a new doormat to refresh the entry of your home.  Stimulate uplifting energy near your front door with a pleasant sounding wind chime for a positive first impression.

                                                            Interior Spaces           

Bring the vitality of nature indoors.  Place a vase of colorful flowers on your dining table or desk to brighten your day.  Hang colorful or inspiring artwork on your walls.  Throw away dried flowers that lack vital life force.  Paint the walls a new color and consider changing your curtains, pillows or bedding to create seasonal interest. 

                                                            Personal Chi

Enhance your personal energy.  Get a breath of fresh air and exercise by gardening in your own backyard or take daily walks to get your physical energy moving.  Start a home project or new hobby to expand your creative expression.  Nothing in nature is static, and your home and life should not be either.

Enjoy transforming your surroundings (and yourself) this spring through the power of place.    If you would like assistance with your home, garden or workspaces, call or email to schedule a consultation!

Good Chi Tip of the Month
~ Feng Shui your Car~

According to the Roland Berger study, Americans spend 540 hours a year in their cars.  Whether commuting to work or running errands, your car is an important environment that impacts your personal energy.  Give your car a spring cleaning by removing clutter and enjoy the benefits of a clean, clear and stress-free state of mind.  Remove unnecessary weight in the trunk for better gas mileage.  Clean the windows and make it sparkle inside and out.   Remember, every space counts! 

And lastly, consider giving your car a name since it creates a more personal connection.  After all, a car is a trusted friend to help take you where you need to go in life!  

That's "Good Chi” . . . and a tip for creating a more enjoyable commute!



 Resource Spotlight:

Music of the Spheres
Wind chimes


Wind chimes are often used in Feng Shui to stimulate energy.   A melodic wind chime placed near the front entrance of your home can set the tone for the energy you draw into your life or enhance a particular area of your life using the bagua life map.

I recently discovered Music of the Spheres wind chimes and hung one in a large maple tree in the Northwest (helpful people area) near the path to my front door.  Not only does the peaceful sound greet passers by, it creates uplifting energy for my guests and myself.

Called the “Stradivarius of wind chimes”, you can listen to Music of the Spheres chimes online based on the size and tuning.   Each is precision tuned, professional grade and built to last.
