Have you ever had that feeling that you are meant for something more? Maybe your heart is pulling you in a different direction or telling you it’s time to take the leap toward something big.
I’ve been there.
And I’ve come to believe that feeling is a sign. It’s your soul calling on you to elevate or take a leap. We’re meant to listen to that calling, lean in, and take action.
But what about when you don’t feel in alignment?
(Trust me, I’ve been there too).
Enter the power of Feng Shui.
Hear me out. While I had certainly heard of Feng Shui before, it wasn’t until I recently sat down with certified Feng Shui practitioner Kate MacKinnon that I truly understood its power to literally transform your life.
Hearing her story, what she does, and how she uses physical transformation in her client’s space to transform their lives totally shifted my perspective. I mean, she’s worked with clients who, with her help, have found life-changing clarity and alignment.
That’s what it’s all about.
Feng Shui is all about creating the physical space and energy for clarity, alignment, and truth to come through. It’s about creating a physical space where you feel able to step into your truest self. I’m all about it (and I think you will be too).
So, here are just a couple of tips I pulled from my conversation with Kate that can guide you in creating a physical space that allows you to feel more aligned with your deepest desires and truest self.
🏠 Your external space is a reflection of your internal state.
Our physical space serves as a mirror to who we are and what we’re experiencing inside. So, if something in your space feels “off,” it’s an indication that there is inner work to do. By shifting your space to what feels energetically aligned, you’re literally creating more energetic flow and alignment with your soul, paving the path for clarity to come through. So, the next time something feels out of whack in your physical environment, check-in with yourself to explore where that feeling of discontent is actually stemming from. (Hint: It’s not the physical space).
🚪 Welcome positive energy.
It all starts with the entrance. The entrance to your space either allows positive energy to flow or stifles it. Therefore, you want the space to feel welcoming. Make sure your entrance is cleared and clutter-free to welcome that good energy in. Take a look around your entryway. What does it look like? How does that feel? Adjust accordingly.
🌷 A new meaning to spring cleaning.
Spring is a time for new life and new beginnings. It’s the perfect time to bring positive vibes into your space. Part of that involves thoroughly cleaning the space to create space for energy and alignment. Consider bringing plants into the space to add an element of life. Clear the air and energy with essential oils or scented candles that bring up positive emotions, making your home feel warm, inviting, and clean.
✈️ Feng Shui on the go.
Ever feel a little out of whack when you’re traveling and staying in hotels or rentals? Instead of letting that get in the way of your alignment, consider what you can bring with you to make the space feel like it is yours. Pack certain items that give you a sense of peace and comfort. Maybe you bring your favorite scent in the form of an essential oil or room spray. Maybe it’s your favorite pair of shoes or pillow. Bring your book or your journal– whatever it is that feels nurturing to your mind, body, and soul. As for what’s already there? If the space feels cluttered, rearrange it. Tuck unwanted items away in the closet. Make it a place you want to be.
The truth is, Feng Shui doesn’t have to be some grand gesture. Often, it’s a rather simple addition or rearrangement that opens the door for major clarity.
Chances are, the answer is already within you. You just need to create the space for it to come through.
Follow your heart, trust your instincts, and give yourself permission to fly.
