How to Shake Up Your Chi

Standard

Clients often share with me that they feel stuck or unmotivated or that they cannot shift a particular area of their life and as a result are feeling frustrated. Sometimes things were going well and then they suddenly feel they have hit a plateau. When this happens, I first recommend energetically clearing both their homes and offices. (For more information on Space Clearing, watch this video or find more information about Space Clearing here.)

Next, I look at how we can shift the energy in their space and their life. Shifting energy is which is what feng shui is all about!

In feng shui, chi refers to energy. Everything has chi or energy – physical objects, cars, homes, offices and even human beings. You may have heard a person’s personal energy referred to as their vibration.

When we are “in flow” our chi/energy is good and we are vibrating at a high level. You have experienced this when you “happened” to be in the right place at the right time or things lined up easily for you, without a lot of effort on your part.

Then there are times when things are not flowing. You may feel like you are moving through mud and perhaps cannot seem to get any traction. Or you may feel like you are not moving at all. You may, in fact, be energetically stuck.

If you’re feeling stuck or out of sorts, it might be time to SHAKE UP your CHI! 

There are many ways to shift out of this stuck place. One of my favorite ways is to shake up your chi. Shifting your chi or energy, allows you to see circumstances from a fresh perspective which leads to ideas and solutions that you cannot access from that stuck place.

The next time you’re feeling stuck, try one of these six ways to Shake Up Your Chi: 

  1. Try something new! Try a new restaurant or food, a new activity, a new experience, a new way of doing something or learning something new (take a class).
  2. Take a new route. Drive down a different road. Take a different route to or from work. Walk a different way. I remember walking the opposite way that I normally would go and saw so many things I never noticed walking the other way. For peeps in Maui, swim at a different beach or hike a new trail.
  3. Move your furniture around. This method shifts the energy in your space in a very real way. My landlord recently brought me different living room furniture and a different kitchen table and it totally changed the energy I felt in that space and opened it up too. Creating more flow by clearing walkways through your house helps too.
  4. Change up your routine. Do your daily activities in a different order, like getting dressed before you look at your phone or meditating, exercising or walking at a different time of day. You could also go in and out a different door (hello front door!), use different dishes – maybe even the fine china. Eat in a different room, like that dining room that is used so rarely. Even putting your right sock or shoe on first instead of your left can shake up your chi!
  5. Pick a random letter and call someone you haven’t talked to in awhile (thanks for this one Gary V). Talking to an old friend or a family member you haven’t chatted with lately can be a great way to remind you what’s important in life too.
  6. And, the ultimate way to shake up your chi?! Go on VACATION or on a RETREAT!!! Yes, it’s true! Changing your physical environment is a wonderful way to shake up your chi, especially if you are visiting a place you have never been or doing something you have never done before.

Comment below to let me know if you try any of these or what your favorite ways are to shake up your chi!  If you want to try #6, the Vitally You Retreat on Maui is the perfect opportunity.

Are Your Sink & Stove Arguing?

Standard

If you’ve been in my tribe for awhile you may have heard me say that your home both reflects and affects you. Everything is energy and the things in your home and the way they are positioned impact you.

How do you know if your sink and stove are arguing? 

Look at the placement of the sink and stove in your kitchen. If the sink is directly across from the stove, this is considered an “arguing” sink and stove. This is energetically challenging because it can literally cause arguing in or outside of the home. Many clients don’t mention arguing as an issue, but when I point out the arguing sink and stove and ask them, they agree that they do argue and often right in the kitchen between the sink and stove!  Once we remedied the issue, the arguing subsided.

There are two options for using Feng Shui to remedy this challenging situation:

1. Place a round rug between the sink and stove or place a rug in front of either the sink or stove that has a pattern with circles on it.

OR

2. Hang a crystal from the ceiling between the sink and stove. A 20 mm crystal is a good size. The crystal should be round and made with at least 30% lead (this has a balancing energy to it). The crystal should hang freely and can be hung with a 9″ red (lucky color) thread or 9″ fishing line. In Feng Shui the number 9 is auspicious and is about reaching new heights (and who doesn’t want to do that?!)

The round energy of the rug or crystal will disperse the arguing between the sink and stove and balance the energy in the space.

If arguing continues to be an issue after the adjustment is placed, please reach out to me as there are other circumstances within the home that can also contribute the energy of arguments.

I would also recommend that you energetically clear your space if there has been a lot of arguing in your home (either during or before you moved there, as in the case of a divorced couple having lived there prior to you).  Watch this video for instructions on how to clear your space with sage.

Your Stove Can Increase Wealth

Your Stove Can Increase wealth
Standard

In Feng Shui stoves represent wealth and abundance no matter where in the home they are located. This comes from the belief in ancient China that stoves represent wealth because that was the way you fed your family. The more burners you had, the wealthier you were because you could feed more people.  Stoves nourish the occupants of the space and friends and family who come to visit and share meals there as well.

You can boost your wealth and abundance using your stove by:

  1.  Keeping your stove clean – this shows respect for the nourishing aspects and attracts good chi or energy.
  2. Putting pots and pans away – we don’t want to dowse our wealth by covering the burners. If you have a tea kettle that you like to leave on the stove, you may choose one that is reflective or place it on a different burner each day.
  3. Use all the burners instead of just the ones in the front – activating all of the burners will bring more abundance to you, like firing all the engines in a jet gives it more power.

Stove Placement

Another energetic challenge I see in many homes is the location of the stove. Many stoves are situated so that the person cooking has their back to the room. This is a challenge because then you are not in the “command” position of the space. This can lead to feeling unprepared for what is coming at you in life and being surprised by what unfolds.

To remedy this situation, I recommend placing a mirror or reflective surface behind the stove. This adjustment is powerful for 2 reasons:

  1. It allows you to be prepared fro whatever happens in your life (and to see what and who is coming up behind you) and…
  2. It effectively doubles your burners and therefore doubles your wealth!

Powerful Feng Shui Stove Adjustment
This adjustment will really give your abundance a boost and activate your wealth!

For 9 days in a row, turn on all the burners on your stove on high for a few seconds until they are bright red. While they are lit up, visualize abundance in all forms flowing to you. The intention to attract more abundance and wealth into your life is the most important part.

Let me know what happens and what forms of abundance you attract into your life as you do so!

Kids Rooms Are Their World

Standard

Applying Feng Shui to children’s bedrooms helps create happier, more successful and well-balanced youth. It’s important to remember that kids rooms are their world – like their “home” and unless they are very little, like under 4 years old, you don’t want to make changes in their rooms without their involvement.

Similar to adults, we want to make certain that children feel safe and supported within the family and within their lives.  As with adults, we create a feeling of support for children with a solid headboard.

Slatted headboards have a cutting energy, which can lead to health and other issues, so if your child has one of these, you will want to remedy this. Several stores, including Ikea, carry headboard covers that slip over the top of an existing headboard. Another option is to weave material through the slats to create a solid look. Or, you may hang a blanket or quilt over the top of the headboard.

If your child does not have any headboard at all you can, of course purchase one. Or you can create one by:

  • Painting a square one on the wall behind their bed
  • Painting the entire wall behind the bed a different color than the rest of the walls
  • Hanging a banner, tapestry, flag or other material behind the bed

Bunk Beds

In Feng Shui, we are not a fan of bunk beds for a number of reasons. For the child in the bottom bunk, it can feel overwhelming as the heaviness of the one above hangs over them or the feeling that the upper bunk could collapse upon them. For the child in the upper bunk, there is usually not a lot of space between the bed and the ceiling, which again gives the child the feeling of overwhelm and a limited view of life and the world.

If you must have bunk beds for space reasons, use these remedies. For the upper bunk, hang something with depth above the bed – I love the glow in the dark stars – to expand the space above the bed and give the illusion of more expansiveness. For the lower bunk, a poster of scenery or a picture with depth, as long as it is calm and soothing, can be hung under the top bunk above where the child lays. This again will help expand the space and leave the child feeling as if they can breathe again!

Unlike adults, children do not need two nightstands and they can have bookshelves in their bedrooms. I do recommend the books be waist high or below, however, to prevent the children from feeling overwhelmed or like things could fall on them.

Lastly, to help your children get a good night’s sleep I recommend closing closet doors before bed. The open doors are a lot of energy rushing at them while they are trying to calm their minds. I also recommend choosing plain solid color sheets and avoiding action figures or cartoon characters, which are very active and do not allow children to relax into their dream state as easily.

Selling Your Home with Feng Shui

Standard

There are many factors that affect the speed with which your home sells. As I write this blog, it is very much a “Seller’s Market” and realtors say there is not enough inventory of homes to meet the needs of all the buyers. And yet, some homes take longer to sell than others. Why is that?

Homes have an energy to them, just like people and objects do. Prospective buyers can feel the energy of your home. Take my house, for instance. It has great energy. People love to hang out there. I enjoy hanging out there myself! But, as many of you know, I am moving to Maui. So my house needs to be sold.

As I prepared my house for the market, there was much to do. Doing this “work” requires that you look at the space that has been your home in a whole new light. My realtor and home stager helped me see my house and the things in it from the buyer’s perspective. I also prepared my home energetically using Feng Shui and other helpful practices.

If you’re preparing to sell your home, start with:

  1. Clearing Clutter
    Anything you are not using should be removed. I found sorting items into categories such as Sell, Give Away, Keep and Store was helpful. If you’re planning on having a garage sale, pricing items and boxing them in categories will make sale set up easier.
  2.  Remove Personal Items
    The big high school graduation pictures of  my boys and all my family photos had to go. For me, this also meant removing the majority of my Feng Shui cure items and many rocks and crystals. You want prospective buyers to be able to visualize themselves and their things in your house. They can’t do that if you have a lot of clutter or personal belongings in the space.

    Selling your home involves more than making physical changes to the space. It is an emotional job as well. I felt sadness removing the Feng Shui adjustments I had placed with intention and love. I took time to process and FEEL these emotions. To help you do this emotional work, next…

  3. Write a Letter to Your Home
    Let your house know what’s going on, why you’re moving and where you’re going. Homes have names and personalities. Uncover yours through meditation (or Schedule a House Whispering session with me!)  Thank your home for all the beautiful memories and for how it has supported you, kept you safe, warm, dry and comfortable during the time you have lived there. Encourage your home to help you. Ask what needs to be done to attract the new owners.
  4. Journal About Your Feelings
    Emotions will come up for you as you clear the clutter, remove your personal belongings and otherwise prepare to sell your house. Journaling helps you process your emotions and energetically let go.Lastly, there are several “Feng Shui” adjustments  that can help speed up the sale of your home. These are a few of my favorites…
  5. Oil  Squeaky Doors
    Doors represent the voice of adults and squeaky ones can lead to complaining. Read more about doors.
  6. Paint Your Front Door
    Red is a lucky color, if you like that, and if it is different than the rest of your house. Or, if you can’t or don’t want to paint the door, hang a beautiful wreath on the door.
  7. Add Something With Movement
    To attract energy (and buyers) to your home, add a flag or a whirly gig near the front door. Another great option, that I used, was a wind chime. The movement of these things (please only use one!) attracts the attention of prospective buyers.
  8. Boost the Helpful People
    Place the names of your realtor, home stager, anyone that’s helping you pack or move and “the perfect new home owner” on pieces of paper inside a gray box or envelope in the Helpful People area of your home. This can be hidden.
  9. Sage Your Space
    Removing clutter, changing things around and cleaning stirs up energy. Smudging (using white sage in bundle or incense form) helps clear all of that out.  The result is that prospective buyers feel welcome and comfortable in your space.
  10. Set Positive Intentions
    Wouldn’t it be nice to sell your home quickly, with ease and grace and have fun while you’re doing it? Those are the intentions I set before selling my home. I also performed a very special Feng Shui adjustment called “Selling A House.”  This adjustment is provided to my clients who request my assistance in selling their home. It works for them and it worked for me!

    I had nine showings (a magical Feng Shui number about reaching new heights) in the 2 days my house was on the market and by day 3 I accepted an above list price offer. Through it all, I constantly reminded myself to relax, breathe and have fun!

  11. Go with the Flow & Surrender to the Highest Unfolding*
    There can be many ups and downs that occur with selling your home. It’s important to continue to FEEL the emotions that come up for you, everything from excitement to disappointment. Remember, that all of this is happening FOR you (as does all of life) and there is always something for you to learn from whatever happens. Let go of controlling the outcome. Be unattached to the timing and price your home sells for. And remember to follow your intuition throughout the process.  
     
    *This last tip is a BONUS add on!  On the evening of Day 4 the buyer cancelled the sale. So, it is currently back on the market. I’ve received another offer and have several more showings so it is sure to sell soon!

Remember, you are beginning a new chapter in your life. Go with the flow and remember you are abundant.  Let go of your attachment to how things should go and selling your house will be a wonderful experience on your life’s journey!
