Feng Shui recommends it's time to lay down your sword

Electric.jpg

When was the last time you saw electricity?  So even though you can't see it the lights come on all the same don't they. 

It follows that just because you can’t see non-physical energy (chi) circulating through your living and working space, it doesn’t mean it's not there.  Chi still has the capacity to power - or dis-empower you and your environment – even though you may not be consciously aware of it. 

The ancient ones were very aware of it however.  It both informed where they located their homes and how they arranged them.  Aka Feng Shui, this phenomenon is both an art and a science and working consciously with it enables you to live more mindfully.

Here’s one clients experience of working with Feng Shui in her office.   Lamia is the owner of a home and pet-sitting company, housesitmatch.com....

"I invited Mary to review my office.  I knew decluttering was essential to get rid of the dead wood and the serious overcrowding in this part of the home, where we'd located our on-line business.”
 
 “There was so much to attend to I didn’t know where to start.  Under Mary’s resourceful and diplomatic guidance we wrestled with mountains of files, old boxes full of stuff we'd stopped needing but had accumulated.  Once you get going, the clearing and re-organising is most invigorating and really helped me to re-focus and concentrate better.”
 
“The Feng Shui enhancements that followed were very important too. I became more aware of the quality of light, how to add colour with purpose, and to place furniture in such a way that the energy in the room was lifted and flows better.  It certainly got my business moving!”

“I even removed a sword!  I'd got so used to having around, I'd stopped noticing it.  But it was the first thing Mary spotted on arrival and not quite the right accessory to be sitting in the ‘Career’ area of my business, holding clients at bay!” 

To bring more awareness and presence into your home or office environment please give me a call on 07827017188 or email mary@marynonde.com.  I’m happy to take a look at the area in question and then roll up my sleeves and get things moving with you.  Plus I have a team of supporting services available too.

When I nurtured my wealth corner with Feng Shui

Room.jpg

You know how it is when a part of your home or office doesn’t feel right. 

Perhaps you’ve tried various ways to resolve it – including ignoring it.  At best it remains plain irritating and at worst it drives you insane.  When you factor in what this irritation costs you in terms of lower productivity (if it’s in your office) and an emotional drain (if it’s affecting your relationship), thank goodness I got around to attending to my own space when I needed to!

I'd been too busy to attend to it  but one morning at 6am precisely I knew what I had to do and I was on it….

My office shares my lounge/dining room.  In rearranging the space I shed a coffee table and invested in a cheap but cheerful standing lamp.  The whole room opened up, felt lighter, and more pleasing.  I added some roses from the garden and a fragrant candle. I raised my money plant off the floor to sit prominently in my ‘wealth corner’ and to conceal the TV when I wasn’t watching it (most of the time). 

Both my desks now have a stunning view of the garden through the patio doors so lots of daylight falls on them, which is so useful during the duller daylight time of year.  The end result is that it’s given me a big boost of ‘hygge’.

The icing on the cake ...within three days, four new pieces of business showed up I wasn't expecting.   Now that’s a good outcome for nurturing my wealth corner – and I still get to enjoy being in the room so much more.

If you’d like my Feng Shui advice on how best to nurture your wealth corner, please do get in touch: mary@marynonde.com.  To find out where your wealth corner you can also request a Bagua map.

A close shave with retail therapy

driving-343056__340.jpg

A client of mine, Susan O, has admirably came to terms with her retail therapy habit by using Feng Shui and De-cluttering methods.  

I caught up with her recently and she told me how her resolve to stay solvent had been severely tested.  

See if you can relate to this.  Or maybe you know someone who is similarly prone to shopping rather than confront what is real causing the behavioural problem?

“In the space of one week I found myself buying a brand-new carpet and a new car.  One was on order and the other sitting in my parking lot while I sat inside the house painfully ruminating on both decisions.  I felt psychologically drained and tethered by the credit arrangements I’d just taken on."

“The car had come about because I’d gone in for a routine service and was persuaded to try a Fiat courtesy car.  Even as I drove the vehicle home, with all the papers signed, my daughter’s words rang in my ears: "we don’t need a new car, Mum.  We can manage with the one we’ve got!”

“Fortunately, there was a loophole in Fiat's financial calculations.  I didn’t have the money to sustain the increased payments required, which would have left me with no disposable income. I used this as my get-out opportunity."  

“With the carpet I was even braver with no loophole to fall back on.  I was booked to have it fitted on a Saturday and on the Monday beforehand I called and cancelled the order.  The carpet man was confrontational but when I said I was very sorry and would he accept a cancellation fee, he backed down and even wavered the fee.  Now I'm clear of the danger zone, I can clearly see we can manage perfectly well with the existing carpet and avoid the upheaval the fitting of a new carpet brings."

“It was a close shave on both accounts and I felt I'd been tested.  It was evident to me that my psychological perspective had shifted.  I feel stronger and no longer a victim so I'm much less of a risk to myself and far less prone to putting myself under financial pressure again."

If you consider Feng Shui and Decluttering might help someone you know please put them in touch.  The advantages of this therapeutic approach is its immediacy;  the changes are made on the spot and often directly where the dysfunction occurs.  Please give me a call if there on 07827017188 if there is anything you'd like to explore or email mary@marynonde.com or use the sign up below.

The obvious advantage is you don't have to leave the safety of the counselling space to return home to implement the remedial actions on your own.  I am right there with you.
