PROSPERITY and My Feng Shui Adventure

Since finishing the book Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life, by Karen Rausch Carter, I have been obsessed with eliminating clutter in my home.  This includes the piles of catalogs that accumulate after each trade show and the ones that get mailed to me during the holidays (Yes, I do save them!).

I heard someone on TV mention that a good way to de-clutter is to throw away or give away 27 items a day for 9 days.  Of course, I had to do it!  What a freeing experience.  My junk drawer is no longer junky.  The things I never use have been donated to a favorite charity.  I feel lighter, and more at peace.  My friends will tell you how excited I was each day that I discovered 27 more things that were cluttering my space and my life.

Feung Shui baguaAnd so from that I began my adventure with the Prosperity corner of my house !  The author tells us to place this grid over your main living area to determine each section.  There’s no need to be perfectly accurate because attributes of each will flow into the other.

Prosperity also relates to abundance and blessings.  So this becomes the place in your home that acknowledges what you’ve been blessed with and what you desire to blessed with.  Fill it with family photos, pictures of your dream house, your perfect vacation…

What are the blessings in your life?  What are you grateful for?  What does your abundant life look like?  Our home is the haven that nurtures our families and our soul.  It’s a reflection of who we are and how we like to live.  Follow along with me in the coming days as I methodically feng shui my house, learning as I go, and having fun in the process!
