Hey, everyone’s on vacation, right? Let’s talk about feng shui!
So I googled something about front door colors for your house and the next thing you know, I’m knee-deep in feng shui. I started reading about the principles of feng shui- the classic compass school makes a lot more sense to me – and I figured out my house has an excellent layout. Front door is facing the right direction, I’ve more or less sorted the baguas so they’re looking good.
Biggest problem has been the bedroom, which has – count ‘em – four doors, plus windows and a radiator and a bathroom adjacent. So good luck putting the bed in the “command position.” I’ve moved my bed three times in a month and I think it’s the best I can do.
If your eyes are rolling back in your head right now – a lot of the feng shui directives, if you boil it down, is common sense. Get rid of extraneous crap. Make your environment restful. Stuff like that.
I had a fun time buying some wu lu gourds and a laughing Buddha to complement my two Quan Yins – which my ex-husband brought me back from Burma and which are fantastically beautiful. I light incense in front of them every day.
Let me recommend the incense my Chinese medicine practitioner uses for acupuncture – Morning Star Sandalwood. It’s light and not too sweet and pretty darn fantastic.
Have you ever done anything like feng shui? Do you pay attention to the “energy” in your house? Or does that just seem like a bunch of hooey?
