Feng Shui Tips for Handling Recent Changes in Your Environment
When going through a radical change, it’s a great help to rearrange or clean out certain areas of our homes. While we’re doing that, we can reorganize our intentions to adapt to the changes in our environment. If 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 to our new circumstances.
For example, I have a lot of crystals and objects that I consider sacred. I got a very strong message that I need to cleanse all my crystals and rearrange some of those objects. Why is that? Because crystals can hold onto a great deal of energy and old intentions.
While I’m adjusting to big changes in my lifestyle, I don’t want to be held back by the gravity of those old energies. I also don’t want to be blocked by intentions and outdated agreements that aren’t relevant anymore. They only create inner conflict or confusion!
My inner guidance is to “change with the changes and still stay grounded.” That’s not easy, but I can do it with the help of Reiki and clear crystals. To cleanse crystals, I simply place them in a bowl of water mixed with sea salt and set them outside overnight. 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.” If I set an intention like that, my whole mindset would start to unconsciously fixate on the illness and all the fear that it attracts. 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, I ask for a life affirming experience that’s general enough to allow for 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 energy. Simply gaze softly at each Circle while you contemplate the question or positive affirmations that go with it.
