For years I’ve been intrigued by the practice of feng shui. I’ve purchased several books (never read them) and thought about it a lot. On my visits to Singapore I’ve visited the feng shui shop at the local mall many times, and always meant to try it – but never did. So when I saw a new book Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life by Karen Rauch Carter, I decided to buy, yet another book, and see where it would lead me.
Last week, while on vacation, I read this book from cover to cover and loved it! The author practices the Black Hat style of feng shui which divides your house into 9 equal categories (life situations). Each part relates to one aspect of your life such as career, prosperity, health, etc. What I enjoyed most about the book is the author’s entertaining way of revealing these ancient Chinese secrets in way that everyone can understand. At the very least, it’s a great guide for home improvement!
So when I returned home, I set the intention to put into practice everything I had learned in the book. Like the title says, Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life, what do I have to lose? My clutter!!!
And so begins my “Feng Shui Adventure” of clearing the clutter and rearranging my house one gua (area) at a time. My next post will begin in my Prosperity corner. In the mean time, visit Karen’s site at www.fengshuipalace.com to order her book and follow along with me.
