I feel stuck a lot. Now, I don’t really think this is because I have worse problems than anyone else. I am actually quite fortunate in many ways. To be honest, my stuckness comes more from overthinking and from a masochistic reluctance to give up the pursuit of perfection. I know that I get in my own way a lot–for instance, I will rewrite my own To Do lists if I feel like my handwriting was too sloppy. Hence the stuckness.
The plus side of overthinking, though, is that I have a variety of philosophies to go to when I do feel stuck. I like to flip through my mental Rolodex and find a paradigm to fit my problem.
For me, Feng Shui is a great option for many struggles. It fits my personality, which likes action. Moving furniture, swapping out items, and even housecleaning all are right up my alley because I like the idea of getting out of my head and doing something physical. Feng Shui encourages us to go with the flow literally, and in my Life Philosophy I feel it is our duty to be one with the Energy-Ch’i-Prana of the Universe.
Here are some examples of Feng Shui that help enhance the energy of your home:
- Rearrange the decor in a room to draw the eye in a clockwise direction. Place something eye-catching in the left corner of the room to start the flow. Keep the eye moving around the room, paying attention to the direction the accessories are facing.
- Remove from the bedroom anything that is work-related, high energy, or unfinished. The bedroom should represent rest, relaxation, and relationships only.
- Get a plant. The color green represents tranquility, and the living plant represents new growth.
