Why Not: Feng Shui Your Way To Creative Success

Picture by William Abranowicz
Feng shui is a Chinese Philosophical system
 for harmonizing
people with their surrounding environment. 

So what does a philosophy have to do with me and 
how can it enhance my creativity?
I hear you ask...

Well, in Feng shui when your environment is well positioned 
it allows 'qi' (think of this as life force or good energy)
to flow freely and unobstructed
bringing with it a plethora of benefits.

Things will feel easier, there are symbolically 
no obstructions to you
and this translates into your life,
it's the practical magic of Chinese philosophy!

As you can see in the picture above there are 
certain sectors within a room that correspond
to different aspects of life. 

It could be really  interesting to position your 
craft desk or work station in the creativity 
area to see if it brings about a higher 
level of creativity. 
Or if you're looking for a higher level of success
why not in the reputation area? 

An important tenet of Feng shui 
is to de clutter. 

Loads of junk floating around everywhere 
makes it difficult for the qi to circulate,
and if you think about it 
clutter any where 
makes it harder to find things,
takes longer to do so, 
and leaves you feeling a little 
drained of energy 
and stressed 
before you've even started 
on your project!

So it's basically rearranging your furniture 
and having a darn good tidy up! 

I'm not an expert on Feng shui (clearly!) 
but it sounds fascinating.

Prosperous lives and creative 
success all round!

Chunky Pearl Necklace

I was in the mood for using up these gorgeous 
and gigantic freshwater pearls.

They make a really nice
chunky variation on a classic style. 

I can't wait to wear this beauty!
