Fall Feng Shui

Autumn


Fall is basically here...and it's a time of transition ALWAYS. The time when things start to slow down but at the same time still remain fairly active. It feels like the sweet spot in between the yin and the yang, that curvy center of flow and mystery

The way we can use fall to our benefit is to bring the outside in as much as possible. Food, flowers, plants, pets, sunshine, air, etc. Savor the last days of light and life,catch the leaves falling and cherish the colorful beauty that shines during this time. Activate rustic tones in your clothes and decor to honor the shifting of the seasons. Start to warm up your intake of foods and beverages to get your body ready for winter. See what in your home needs attention....

Decluttering is always beneficial to do, but especially during transitions of any kind. Just as Spring Cleaning is the go-to chore, make it a point to re-evaluate what you keep around you right now. Notice what is out of balance, what is outdated, what is draining your energy or what might be taking you away from experiencing the full spectrum of life. The metaphorical cornucopia of blessings is being bestowed upon us in these next couple months, so it's wise to create the space for those blessings to be, inside yourself and inside your home. 

Start to notice more, feel more, relax more, take in more beauty around you. It's the time to cultivate a space of solace and refuge, a sanctuary for the winter months.

What do you need?
What do you desire to be surrounded by?
What needs your attention?
What feels off?
What feels amazing?

Focus on creating an inner and outer place of peace...whatever that means for you. 


If you are curious about how to do any of this or just want to learn more so you can feel empowered to create a space and a life you love, perhaps my signature virtual group Feng Shui program would be a good fit for you! We are only a couple weeks away from the start of the annual program, and if all this talk of transition, sanctuary and beauty ignites something in you, I think it's worth checking out.

5 Tips for Spring Cleaning with Feng Shui

Happy Spring! What a perfect time to start fresh with a clean house and new intentions. Amongst the typical spring cleaning duties, there are more in depth ways to make your space sparkle while also enhancing your life! It’s important for energy to flow freely. You might not realize that some parts of your life can be affected by those hidden areas that are neglected. Check out my top 5 tips for spring cleaning that include the 3 main principles of Feng Shui.

1. Declutter and purge! The catch all drawer, the bathroom cupboards, your closet or that messy desk drawer need your help. Dump everything out so you can see it all. Get rid of everything you don’t need (something you haven’t used in 6 months to a year or whatever is not serving you anymore). Put like things together back in and use dividers if possible. Even small spaces can be scary when cluttered. Start small and pretty soon, you’ll get the confidence to tackle a big project you’ve been putting off. Or just call me ;)

2. Vacuum, dust or mop UNDER all furniture, tables, shelves, closets- especially the things that never move. Schedule a strong volunteer to help if needed. Take the items sitting on top away (like glasses in your cupboard or all the books on the bookcase) and clean. Dust and dirt are not energy’s friend, even if you can’t see it. 

3. Clean your refrigerator. Take everything out and scrub it down with an eco cleaner or vinegar/water solution. Be careful not to use mainstream chemical “cleaners" in your refrigerator where your food will be. Don’t forget to wipe the bottom vent. Often forgotten about, those gooey spills can affect a certain area of your life. If you know which area, it might be an ironic metaphor. 

4. Walk through your space and gather all of your broken items. Look for things with zippers, in your cupboards, around the outside of your house, or your storage area. Either get rid of it because it’s not doing you any justice, or make a pact with the item to fix it by a certain time. Hopefully you can have faith in the fact that broken things don’t belong around you.

5. Now that you have gotten rid of at least ONE thing (right?!), introduce a brand new, preferably “spring-y" something to beautify your freshly cleaned space. Put a brighter comforter on your bed, new pillows for the couch, a fresh smelling candle for the bathroom or whatever brings a smile to your face. This is a crucial step of closure to move forward with your new intentions at this inspiring time. If you want, you can even place your own unique blessing over the space or certain items.

ENJOY!
