Inspiration with Feng Shui

I’m not sure, maybe it’s because I’ve been in the throes of a type of spiritual “up-leveling,” or perhaps because I’m starting my next certification training, but the word INSPIRED is in my world so much lately, I thought I’d share a couple of things in hopes that the energy of inspiration spreads to you.



Here are a couple of things that inspired me this week:


First is an email that I received where the woman resuscitated her feng shui and relationship showing that feng shui is an EVER-ONGOING PROCESS:


“Seven months after my wedding, my husband decided he didn’t love me anymore, picked up his sh*t and left to go live somewhere else for a while saying he needed “time to think.” Suddenly I was not married anymore, I was separated. There is nothing like a shock of this magnitude to make you reevaluate your own feng shui. I reevaluated my home with a critical eye.

In love and relationship, back when I was looking for a partner, I put two miniature Hitching Posts, garter belts, and other wedding-type items in this corner. After I got married, I removed these items. Mistake!

A small corner of my husband’s side of the bed faced the door leaving the bedroom. I once had red construction paper underneath his feet, which I removed at one point for some unknown reason.Mistake number 2!

The love and relationship corner of the bed room itself had a pile of my ugly gray t-shirts to sleep in. Mistake number 3!

Then we come to the bed itself. For practical reasons, we simply put two futons together for us to sleep on. They often would separate in the night. There was always a crack, or “separation” between us. Mistake number 4!

I wanted my husband back. And this was going to take some work. Immediately, I took anything that was red in my house and used it in the Love and Relationship Gua, which unfortunately is in my bathroom; a silky red pillow, some bright red placemats, the very expensive bottle of champagne we were saving for his immigration outcome, 2 champagne glasses, two candles, red construction paper hearts with our names on them, a bright red poinsettia plant. My bathroom was transformed! You could feel the good energy in there now. I balanced this with some books about relationships in the skills and knowledge area.

In the love and relationship corner of the bedroom, I immediately put fresh red flowers, removed the ugly grey T shirts of course, and added two candles and a stuffed toy red heart that says Love on it.

I then took a very expensive financial plunge and bought us a brand new king size bed. (I’m not advocating that everyone go out and spend loads of money on this task. But at least get rid of the separation down the middle of the bed for God’s sake!)

I had been reading a novel called “Brutal Journey.” Needless to say, that book went in the garbage. My husband had a photograph of a black widow spider that he really loved that he wanted to frame. Sorry, but we all know what black widows are about and that also is sitting outside my house now.

Two weeks after he left, my husband came home saying he missed me and wanted to try and work it out. I’m not saying this is not going to be hard going forward, it might be. But at least now I feel like we have a second chance.

Feng shui or coincidence?

Sometimes it is very difficult to see your own feng shui sagging.

Feeling very lucky to have had both of your books in my back pocket all these years. :)”


I’m honored that you feel that my books have inspired you…that makes me inspired to continue my work! 🙂

    I Have the opposite problem. I have this guy – we are in a relationship for 13 years now – and I want him off my back. We have done the separation thing a few years ago and he was a monster. He was what some call the Toxic Ex Husband, and , in a moment of weakness, I accepted him back…
    Long story short… What can I do, Feng Shui wise, to become happily single?
    Please help!

      Make your bedroom only work for one person. Take away one night stand, push one side of the bed against the wall so no one can enter, place pictures of you alone in a frame (preferable during happy times when you were single) etc. Then remove EVERY SINGLE THING that reminds you of him in any way from your home. Also, do not get within a distance where you can smell, see, hear or obviously touch him. Chemistry is tricky and those triggers can get you tangled up again. Place his name in a metal box and place it in the front right-hand part of your house or a room (preferably not your bedroom) in a thank you note saying something like “Thank you so much (name) for respecting my wish never to see, hear, touch, or smell you again. I have moved on to a better life and I wish you the same.” (something like that – you can date the thank you note as well) All that goes in the metal box and you thank that box for being so helpful to you! (Read more about that cure in Chapter 6 of my Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life book)
      Good luck!

    Thank you Karen!
    I will do just that! I also left a comment somewhere else in the blog. I`m so excited! I bought your book last Sunday so I was here reading everything in the blog… Seeing if I can learn more, more, more! I find it interesting that when it comes to love, not every person wants to find a partner, some want and need help moving on.
    I know I need help in this area of my life. I`ve been studying and delving into may things through the past years such as Astrology and Law of Attraction. I`m very happy to have re-found Feng Shui (I studied it about 5 years ago and forgot all about it), maybe this is the last tool I need. My fingers are crossed!
    Thank you again!

    When it comes to the helpful area can I write a thank you note to make someone move away and out of my life for good. This person is a former neighbor who wasn’t liked by all but moved back to the area for a job. I don’t wish her any ill but to move away and never come back.

      How about this: “Thank you for the beautiful circumstances that allow me to live my life consistently happy joyous and free!” and let the Universe work it from that end. 🙂

        Thank you for responding to my question. Its an honor. I have one more question. When you put any thank you notes in your silver box, do you put them in and forget about them or on ocassion do you take them out to read them as a reminder so the cure will work? Thank you once again! I thoroughly enjoy reading all your feng shui advice:-)

          I use it both ways…depending on my mindfulness!
