We’ve all had that feeling when entering a room or a space, that something just was not right.
How many of us actually take the time to stop, notice, and become aware?
I have found most people’s perceptions regarding Feng Shui relates to where you place your desk, files, or chair. Maybe it’s all about the color or décor. They presume there are just one or two choices. That’s it.
Whoa, it is so much more!
It is that moment we say, “Oy vey, I just can’t take this anymore!”
Here is your first SUCCESS key: Without awareness there cannot be change.
Take a moment; what is your “Oy vey?”
Does it feel like new clients aren’t coming through the door?
Do you feel stuck in the mud, and can’t seem to move forward?
Are files and papers piling up all around you?
Does everything look perfect, clean, clear, and appealing?
But, you know something just doesn’t feel right?
Let’s take an example of how this affects realtors: You have a listing on the market that just won’t sell. You have diligently worked with the client… cleaning, purging, painting, staging – it looks fabulous. The price is right. The location perfect! All properties in the area are moving;but, this one property – nothing. “Oy Vey!” you say.
The realtor did everything right, by painting and staging. But, there is something in the way of the desired outcome of the sale. Think about it this way – all of those efforts are like putting fresh flowers in dirty water.
Time to call in Feng Shui.
The ultimate Feng Shui process includes a practice called “dowsing” – the time tested tool for accessing information in our environment. Very scientifically, it accesses the information beyond the physical.
First, we use dowsing to identify the energy of our environment that we can feel. Just like on a cold, blustery day, you can feel the wind as you step outside. We do not see it. But, we know it is there.
On the other end of the spectrum, we have energy that we may identify in our physical space. It comes in the shape of the objects that direct our movement and flow. Is a chair blocking your direct path to something you access every day? Together these energies create our experience, each just as important as the other.
Dowsing provides information without judgement. We ask to find the information creating the disturbance. The disturbance would be isolated based on the issue. In this case for the realtor, it would be preventing the sale of the property.
The desired outcome is to sell the house, which is reached by releasing stress and clearing the energy.
Whether preparing a property for sale or moving clients into a new home, it’s important to clear the energy of any stress or leftover residue from prior occupants.
This can also be said of clearing the residual energy of the builders and landscapers! Everyone involved in that home leaves their imprint, or their “scent” so to speak.
Dowsing may be just part of the prescription to clear the roadblocks to your desired outcome
Once the fog has lifted, you feel like a million bucks – and have the potential to earn that as a realtor!
Feng Shui resources use tools, such as dowsing, to create the right prescription to integrate the seen with the unseen.
The most important part of this equation is YOU!
Here’s a favorite Feng Shui tip that will get you on your way to solving your “Oy Vey!”
Be aware of the first thing you see when you awaken each morning. Or, the first thing you see as you enter your office, or sit at your desk, or in your favorite chair. Use these first images to fill you up with feelings support.
We are made up of many different thoughts and feelings, all of which are on-call 24/7. They guide us to keep us safe, to make decisions, and to direct us to our desired outcome.
Use these “firsts” to create supportive feelings. Now, start to observe when those feelings aren’t so nurturing. When do you find yourself getting irked, annoyed or frustrated?
For example, take notice of your experience when you enter your office. Is it easy? Is it a struggle? Is it effortless to get to the door? Does the door open easily or does it stick?
How does the first thing we see make us feel? These are all of the “imprints” we are creating day after day. But, here is how it’s affecting us in a bigger way. Back to our example of the office door that sticks. Since your mind anticipates that is going to happen, even before you start your trek to your office, you feel the tension in your neck starting to build, and soon your back hurts, and your mood turns sour. Why? Because your body knows it’s about to go into war with that office door again.
Can you see how powerful noticing these “firsts” are and how you can remedy your roadblocks? It is in your best interests to set your stage, to create your best-intention imprints. It’s easy.
Begin by noticing how you feel during one of your fabulous firsts – if the feeling does not serve you, take a moment to decide what one thing you can do to change it? In this case, a good handyman! Begin with just one thing, then move on to notice the next. Small steps yield powerful results.
