Feng Shui Tips for Handling Recent Changes in Your Environment:

When going through a radical change, it’s a great help to clean out certain areas of our homes and keep an eye on how well the energy is moving. While we’re rearranging things, we can reorganize our intentions to adapt to the changes in our environment and circumstances. When we take the time to do that, we’re allowing a physical and psychological space to open up for new things to come in and help us adjust both inwardly and outwardly.

Changes in Your Environment - Crystal CleansingFor example, I have a lot of crystals and objects that I consider sacred. I got a strong message that it’s time to cleanse all my crystals and rearrange some of those objects to accommodate the recent change in the I Ching flow that’s gone from CONFLICT to SYNERGY. Why is that so important? Because crystals can hold onto a great deal of energy and old intentions.

In order to make such a large shift in my awareness, I don’t want to be held back by the gravity of those old energies. Also, I don’t want to be blocked by old intentions and outdated agreements that aren’t relevant anymore. They only perpetuate inner conflict or confusion!

A few months ago, when the pandemic started, I got the strong guidance to “change with the changes and still stay grounded.” Now, my inner guidance is to “bring light and balanced prosperity into my mindset and environment.” That’s a pretty big change, considering the depth of conflict and upheaval we’ve all been going through!

Big changes in your environment can be supported with the help of Reiki, strong intention and clear crystals.

To cleanse crystals, I gather them up from around my house and property and then place them in a bowl of water mixed with sea salt. This month, I’m guided to set them outside for a day or two when the moon is out. That way, they will get really clear through an infusion of both Sun and Moon light. Then, I set new intentions with those crystals, based on what is needed now.

Notice that I didn’t say, “please keep the coronavirus away,” or “please be sure our government doesn’t fall into fascism.” If I were to set intentions based on things I don’t want to happen, my whole mindset would start to unconsciously fixate on all the uncertainty and fear that these things attract. To make things even worse, the energy in my environment should start to organize around the fixation. That’s exactly opposite of what I want!

So, when I set intentions in turbulent times, I calm myself down first. Once the shock is abated and my mind is clear of anxiety, I ask for a life affirming experience that’s general enough to allow positive change to occur and that makes sense under my current circumstances. That part is especially important since we know the changes we’re going through are liable to continue for some time. Then, I set up the energy in my living space to organize around the new intention by mindfully placing the crystals and/or sacred objects as I’m guided.

If you are interested in this process of reorganizing your intention, here are a few Intuitive Learning Circles that will help you focus and re-organize your awareness. Simply gaze softly at each Circle while you contemplate the question or positive affirmations that go with it.

  1. What, if anything, has recently changed in your environment?

How have your circumstances changed?


Is there a general improvement or decline?


2. Are there any agreements or decisions you need to reorganize?


3. What is the best way to nurture and care for yourself now?


4. What changes in your environment do you need to make to support your new intention? The changes could be inside or outside.


How might you bring light and balanced prosperity into your environment?”

Congratulations! Make a list of the inspiration that comes and you’re off to a good start!
