As a family, we’ve probably watched more news and read more articles in the last few months than we had in the last several years combined. At times it has made everything feel really heavy. Do you know what I mean? That drained feeling, mixed with fear and hopelessness. It’s been too much! I think it’s important to limit your intake/exposure to the tv and internet in challenging times so your personal energy is not depleted. I even wrote an article about this a few years back and it still feels relevant. You can check it out here.
The key for me has been to stay in touch with how I’m feeling as I watch/read and honor when I’ve reached my limit. I’ve also begun countering that heaviness with plenty of lighter activities like reading for entertainment, connecting with family and friends, doing yoga and meditation, and eating better too. In the beginning, when I wasn’t doing that, I really felt a toll on my mood and my overall well-being. With these practices in place I’ve been better able to look at all that is going on without taking it in personally. I feel that makes me stronger and better equipped to help bring about positive change in the long run.
I’ve also renewed efforts to make our space feel really peaceful and uplifting. I’m paying extra attention to the details, and adding touches that lift the chi. I’ve pulled everything out of my holistic tool bag for this – aromatherapy, candles, incense, crystals, music, feng shui and décor touches that help make HOME feel like a peaceful retreat and a calm place to ride out the storm.
I’ve always felt that we all have tremendous personal power and energy available to us. We just have to remember to tap into it. Using feng shui in our home is one way that I can harness this energy and use it to our advantage. I also believe that if we each “up” the energy of our own personal space we can do a lot to tip the balance of energies across the nation and further. So it may feel like things are out of control in the world around us right now, but we can still create a positive effect by keeping our own space uplifted.
I created a free printable with some feng shui tips for creating a calm and peaceful home. Feel free to download it and share it. There are also plenty of useful tips to support a peaceful home in my book “Feels Better. Flows Better. Feng Shui for Inspired Living”. The book is available online through Amazon and Barnes & Noble and can also be purchases locally at Fiske’s General Store and Coffee Haven in Holliston.
Of course they say that LOVE conquers all! So the next workshop I’m offering is one that will help us all learn to bring more loving and connecting energy into our space. Check out the details and sign up below.
