Sometimes Feng Shui is quite literal. If something in your home is broken, it can be having an effect on you.
What is going on in your environment is a reflection of what can be happening in your life. Is everything in your home or business in good working order and functioning properly? (Notice how I phrased that?)
Check Your Surroundings
Take a look at your surroundings. Does anything need to be repaired? While you may have some items that immediately come to mind, sometimes things that need to be repaired can slip past us.
We may not always see things because we are used to our environments. For example, you may have a blanket on your couch that you use every evening. It’s a comfortable blanket to you. However, one corner may have started unraveling or it has a hole in it.
Because you use that blanket every evening, it has become part of your routine and environment. You may not even realize the blanket has a hole in it!
Here is a quick list of other items in your home to check and maintain/repair or replace if needed:
- Lightbulbs: Are any burned out or broken?
- Doorbell: Does it chime when you press the button?
- Drawer handles: Are any loose and need to be tightened?
- Furniture: Does any wobble/have uneven legs?
- Hinges: Any doors or cabinets that squeak or stick?
- Drains: Are any drains in your home clogged or drain slowly?
- Personal items: Any items such as a watch or necklace that needs a new clasp, etc.? Do you have a shoe with a broken heel?
Making the Connection
The bagua is used in forms of Feng Shui practice. This bagua “map” shows how a home is divided into certain areas and how these areas are connected with aspects in one’s life (Prosperity, Relationships, Career, and so on).
I know I am asking a lot of questions, but here are a few more to help you start thinking about the connection between your environment and life.
Your front door is the entry to your home, right? Well, it is also that main path that opportunity uses to enter your home (life). If the light on your porch is broken or burned out, is opportunity going to be able to see where you are? If your doorbell isn’t working, are you going to hear opportunity when it presses the button?
I hope you find the above information useful! Remember to write down the changes (and in this case, repairs) that you make to your space to track and see what new opportunities enter your life.
