In this article Naja Li shows how the ancient practice of Feng Shui is applied to create a practical roadmap for organising your home. What is written here applies to every home, regardless of your circumstance.
Here’s a crazy idea: make your home cosy so you can be more productive. In Yin / Yang theory, yin is the cosy quality, it is the sharing, togetherness, sleeping, eating, sex, business of chores that glues us all together. Family get-togethers are a great time to notice this Yin and think about how to bring more Yin into our lives.
I too like the feeling when the tidy up is done, but don’t confuse this with Feng Shui. The reason clutter doesn’t matter is because Feng Shui begins in the heart. For the message of Feng Shui is that what is joyous in your heart manifests in your home. This is the real Feng Shui and it is open to everyone. It doesn’t matter if your cat pees on the rug or your toddlers like to draw – on walls. If you can hold within your heart the possibility of living as one in infinite love then your life will be transformed.
In 2015 I moved with my three children into a tiny inner city apartment. It’s so small my kids think the living areas in the IKEA showroom are huge. Nearly a year later I am still getting rid of stuff I don’t have room for in my life. But it works. Part of the reason for it working is the intention I bring to the space, but mostly it works because I know the Feng Shui Insider’s Secrets.
