At the same time I was thinking in the back of my head that our own front walkway hadn't been shoveled after the last snow ... and we probably had little intention to clear it. (As I write this post, after more snow and a fast freeze our walkway is now a treacherous frozen tundra that can no longer easily be cleared and certainly can't be navigated. (Please don't try to navigate it if you come visit!))
In all honesty I'm usually practicing what I preach in regards to feng shui. But after 7 or so snow storms it just seemed exhausting and pointless to shovel when we don't use the front door very often. So what's the difference? Why are we temporarily off the hook from shoveling while I was pleading with this client to make sure they cleared their path and doorway right away?
It all comes down to what's going on in the house. In the case of this client it was a critical need to make this particular change. The family was feeling pinched financially, was seeing health consequences and relationships among family members were stagnating. Snow or not this family needed fresh vibrant chi - and fast!! Since those challenges aren't manifesting in our home it seems okay to let the rules slide for a bit and wait for the thaw. (And hopefully that thaw will come quickly!)
Have you stopped shoveling your front door out after this relentless winter? Consider whether you are feeling challenged in any areas of your life. If you are it may be a good time to pick that shovel back up and clear a path to invite some fresh chi in.
Happy Feng Shui-ing!
