What is the space around you reflecting about you? Does it show your joy, your connections, and your creativity? Is it warm and inviting?
Look around and see if there is positive energy flowing in and through your surroundings.
Notice if your rooms and closets are crammed full of stuff, where energy stops and stays stuck. And, probably the garage and attic are the same.
Take time to assess what your home and life feel like. Step back. Detach and be open to noticing what your environment is giving back to you.
As Vernon Howard states, “If your life looks attractive but feels uncom-fortable, ask yourself, 'Is that what you really want?' This awakens higher understanding.”
It’s easy to want to hold on to things because there are memories and meaning for us. As well as many practical things that are needed.
But, life is calling you to a new way of being.
Easter has reminded us. “He has risen.”
As Richard Rohr explains in his Falling Upward, A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Lives, “We need to die to our small self to be born into the best version of ourselves. We need to embrace the “necessary suffering” of our lives as we “fall” “upward.”
He reminds us that all of us will suffer and face hardships.
Father Rohr calls it the “necessary suffering” because it allows us to awaken to something bigger than ourselves as we listen to our souls.
Hopefully, during this stay at home and quarantine, you have spent time reflecting on what’s going to change and what will stay in your physical space as well as your mental space.
You have to let go of the old to make room for the new. And most often, you won’t do that unless something painful enough captures your attention. Like Covid-19.
It’s in the rising from the suffering, you redefine what matters to you and your life.
Where in your life do you need to let go and shed some things and/or thoughts? I know Bo and I have already cleaned out a few spaces and a bunch of clothing. We both still have separate areas that we need to get rid of more, and reorganize. It’s freeing. I want to get rid of like every knick-knack. I want open space.
Clutter and mess take up space and energy.
Are you open and ready to create a new design that reflects you today?
Feng Shui can help you let go, change the energy.
Your life can feel magical and blessed. Feel glad that you had the opportunity to let go of things that no longer serve you.
The new space provides you with more energy to move and create.
Take time to define the qualities that you want to feel and be a part of your home and surroundings. Lots of bright flowers and messages that welcome others?
What’s it look like? Is it open space, cozy, candles, and pictures of family?
How can you create a space that reflects your heart and soul now that you have had time to really know what matters to you?
