Fix Your Bucket

Fix Your Bucket

In Feng Shui, there are enhancements or “remedies” you can make to your living space to enhance the area to achieve the positive changes you are seeking to invite into your life.

If something in your home needs to be repaired, though, it needs to be fixed (or replaced) first because enhancements can only do so much if something is broken.

Think of it this way: let’s say you planted a garden, and you need one bucket of water for it every day (it’s a small garden). However, the only water source for your garden is a creek which is down a hill.

Broken bucket and new bucket

If your bucket is in perfect working order, you only need to make one trip down the hill to fill it to get the water you need for your garden. If your bucket has a crack in it, you may need to make twice as many trips to get a sufficient supply because you are losing or leaking water on your way back.

Over time, if you do not repair or replace your bucket, the crack becomes a hole. Then you may need to make even MORE trips to the creek.

Your environment is a reflection of what is going on in your life. If your environment (bucket) does not support you (leaking water), YOU are making up for it with your energy (having to make more trips to the creek).

Making an “enhancement” would be like placing a piece of tape over the crack in the bucket. Sure, it may slow down the leak and slightly improve the issue, but you still have a bucket that is leaking. Enhancements can only do so much if something is broken or not working properly. Make any necessary repairs (or replacements) before making your enhancements.

I hope you find this information useful. Thank you for reading!
