A funny quick bit about Feng Shui and what it means to you!

It is a philosophical Chinese method of placement.  It is both how a house sits in a landscape as well as the objects and flow inside a home. It can be as basic as it’s meaning of wind (Feng) and water (Shui) or the flow of what are life essentials around the globe. Wind and water mean life and their energies bring life force and harmony or chi.

What does it mean in the west? A great western example is of the American garage. Built to hold a car and yet when it is raining and snowing and you are carrying groceries in to the house and getting wet.  Why…. because the garage is so disorganized that a car does not fit in it. The solution to change your chi here is to clean the garage and use it as intended. Another example is furniture placement. The coffee table that you hate and always bang your shin on.  Move or get rid of it. There is no harmony in a bruised shin.

Taking care of the things around you so that they take care of you is the most basic drill down of the concept. Clean out the basement and make room for the kids to play. Have less clutter so that your life functions in a way that makes you function better. Functioning better by being on time and being more relaxed and prepared for your day is a win in any method be it Chinese or common sense.
