Feng shui is a Chinese Philosophical system
people with their surrounding environment.
So what does a philosophy have to do with me and
how can it enhance my creativity?
I hear you ask...
Well, in Feng shui when your environment is well positioned
it allows 'qi' (think of this as life force or good energy)
to flow freely and unobstructed
bringing with it a plethora of benefits.
Things will feel easier, there are symbolically
no obstructions to you
and this translates into your life,
it's the practical magic of Chinese philosophy!
As you can see in the picture above there are
certain sectors within a room that correspond
to different aspects of life.
It could be really interesting to position your
craft desk or work station in the creativity
area to see if it brings about a higher
level of creativity.
Or if you're looking for a higher level of success
why not in the reputation area?
An important tenet of Feng shui
is to de clutter.
Loads of junk floating around everywhere
makes it difficult for the qi to circulate,
and if you think about it
clutter any where
makes it harder to find things,
takes longer to do so,
and leaves you feeling a little
drained of energy
before you've even started
on your project!
So it's basically rearranging your furniture
and having a darn good tidy up!
I'm not an expert on Feng shui (clearly!)
but it sounds fascinating.
Prosperous lives and creative
success all round!
