Day #115 (May’s Feng Shui Myth Bust)
MYTH- A Feng Shui home has to be Zen-like and perfect. All the time. Forever.
Oh this is a great myth…. because this is what I thought my home and space had to be like.
No piles of books or paper.
No baskets full of clothes.
Basically no kids, or kids things. Or kids making a mess. Just no kids really. If you have kids, you’re screwed.
OK enough about the kid stuff… Really…
Feng Shui is not about being completely obsessed about having everything in its place.
Dusting until all you can see is the white of your glove. Tidying up and losing the plot if the kid/dog/partner leaves crumbs, toys, saliva-(my god that could be any of them).
I’m telling you right now that it is ok to not have the home tidy all the time.
It’s ok if you leave your bed unmade for the day.
It’s ok to have a floordrobe for a few days.
Your home is a reflection of you and you know yourself you will go through ebbs and waves of how enthusiastic you are to do things, to have things in order.
There is a need for balance in all things and that includes your home and Feng Shui.
As long as you are aware of your space and how it may be reflecting you… it’s ok.
You know you need to get to that floordrobe but if that means putting yourself under more stress, a tighter time constraint, it can wait a day or two.
So I would like you to go easy on yourself and rest and relax Feng Shui Gal… those dishes can wait, it won’t mean that your abundance will be blocked or your Earth element will cause you digestive issues.
Everything has a time and a place.
And if you feel like a Feng Shui-ed home needs to be a perfect home then that mindset may drain your energy and take up valuable YOU time.
Work with your space as you would work with you.
