When is CLUTTER Holding Us Back?

Feng Shui talks a lot about clearing your clutter. But what does this mean? Why does it matter? Does Feng Shui mean everyone’s home and closet will look exactly the same? (No, of course not.) Let me start with a story . . .

 

One day, when I was in the midst of getting my Feng Shui certification, a local neighbor of mine - a newly retired man in his early 60s’ - was very curious about Feng Shui and said, “I do know one thing about it, they advise you on clutter. Do you have clutter?” I responded that no, I don’t have clutter actually. Also, I make a frequent point to clear what I no longer need, or what doesn’t serve me or bring me joy. He looked at me with surprise. Oftentimes, when we are just so used to life being a certain way and haven’t really thought much about it - in this case, being used to living with a lot of material clutter, we sometimes imagine that this is what it’s like for everyone. Conversely, the opposite can happen when we spiral into self-pity and get hyper-focused on a negativity in our life - the self-pity enables us to think (quite falsely) that we are the only one’s going through this pain or situation and that no one else could understand. Well, back to my semi-retired neighbor: You see, after the surprise of learning that I didn’t live with clutter . . .

How to Beat Depression: My personal journey of the way out

So many people spend years or even most of their lives struggling with depression. The truth is we can overcome problems like these. We can learn tools that in 10 to 30 minutes will transform how we feel and help us to truly overcome depression.

One of the #1 reasons people are experiencing depression, even in a lot of cases where they are told it is 'clinical' depression, is that they are disconnected with their true self. Over time, this disconnection becomes more and more painful and the individual floats further and further away from who they truly are, further fuelling the cycle of depression.

Live Your Dream: How to use creative writing to step into your dream life now

Maybe you feel you have a clear idea of how you want to experience each day or maybe your desires feel fuzzy. Either way, if it's not occurring now for us, that means we haven't created the dream reality yet; we haven't stepped into the frequency of our ultimate dream day. Here is how you can do that and it's a process that is loads of fun ~ it involves writing your story and stepping into it.

A lot of times, people just journal to vent and write out what they are feeling bad about, but this is a very negative process that just keeps them in a cycle of negative emotions and venting. It doesn't challenge one to step into a new frequency where there is a more enjoyable reality.

How to Travel to Your Dream Destination

Recently, a friend and I were talking about meditation. He said: 

“I don’t see why I would start meditating, I’ve lived this much of my life just fine without it.”

I realised that this might be how many people who haven’t integrated meditation into their lives are thinking about it. 

If I offered you some cake, or a beer, (or pizza…), and you hadn't yet tried cake or beer (or lasagna…), so you decide to turn it down, (because after all, you’ve lived this long without it ;) ), your future self might be quite shocked! Your future self may try to communicate with you - as a distance voice in your head saying:

5 Signs You're NOT Dreaming Too Big

If you have a big dream you may have been told from a young age that you are unrealistic and then felt pain from a lack of support for the visions you naturally have for your life. The more you expressed your desires and ideas and they were rejected, the more you shut them down. You then likely took in false beliefs about yourself, perhaps around being unrealistic or incapable, that were self-limiting and served to stop you from expanding fully into your vision.

The key is getting in touch with . . .

The History of Feng Shui and Why it Works

People are affected, for better or for worse, by their environment and by the layout and orientation of their surroundings. This is the observation that Feng Shui evolved from.

Each hill, building, window, wall, and corner will interact with the elements in a different way depending on which direction they face. Feng Shui literally translates to Wind Water - two elements that highly affect our surroundings. Nature reacts to changes in it's landscape and those changes affect humans. Early Feng Shui practitioners noticed that . . .
