Feng Shui and Money

Money is a form of energy. It’s a more convenient way of carrying around our form of barter than lugging around chickens and goats.

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art of placement. It’s based on the knowledge that everything is energy, and when energy is stuck, we get stuck, emotionally or otherwise. Feng Shui is basically  setting your intention around energy. It doesn’t have to be woo-woo or expensive. In most cases, you don’t need to spend money to set feng shui into action. You can begin right now with setting your intention, removing clutter (which is what I define as things that don’t raise or maintain the energy you want) and re-arranging things in your apartment, home, or room(s) within it. You don’t have to decorate in red and black. If you feng shui your desk at work no one will know unless you tell them. (Well, if you have a little Buddha, and bagua mirror it may stand out a bit…)

Feng Shui is not a replacement for common sense. (Darn!) You can do all the right moves with color and product—but if you ignore your budget, and continue an attitude of doom and blame, the place you forgot to feng shui is your thinking. Have fun with it; don’t abdicate your mind to anything or anyone.
