Rearranging and reinventing our living space is one of the most powerful ways to free up creative energies and get our lives moving again. By mixing up the chi in our outer space, we revitalized the chi in our inner space. In doing so, we begin to see clear solutions to our most daunting problems. As a result, our lives begin to flow, and marvelous synchronicities begin to appear!
I love helping clients reinvent their living space using little or no money. I call this Feng Shui Redesign, because it combines both Feng Shui and Interior Design expertise.

3. Gather all the bits of things, such as loose photos, letters, cards, bits of mementos from outings, used candles, scraggly plants, and put them all in a box. Now gather all of the treasures (i.e. things you truly love), thoroughly clean each one and put them in another area of the room. Now go on a treasure hunt and find all of the beloved items that are stored away in drawers and closets and add them to the treasure trove items. Surrounding ourselves with objects we love will bring vibrant chi into the room. Take out the treasures you keep behind glass and use them on a daily basis. In doing so you are affirming that you deserve to have beautiful things. The universe picks up this message and you start attracting like energies.

4. Observe with a fresh eye what you have in the room. Make a list of what seems to work and what doesn’t. If something doesn’t work it is often because of one, or a combination of, the following things:
