I've decided I really should get on and declutter. I also wondered whether the rules of Feng Shui would help the chi flow through our house better and make us healthy, happy , rich and slender. So when I passed the 'Save the Children' charity shop and saw a copy of 'The Complete Guide to Feng Shui' for only 90p. I was in that shop faster than you could say 'bargain'. It seemed to me to be 'a sign'.
So what have I learnt? Well - I had to dig out the compass we used to have for tramping over Dartmoor. I stood at the front door and found out we do not face an auspicious direction for My Man and I. In other words we bought the wrong house - wrong for us. Now that I know our magic numbers are 2 and 9 this house doesn't face the correct direction for either one of us. The house should belong to someone who has a 'magic number ' of 1 for a perfect partnership of house and person. I must remember this when I want to market the property. Never mind the HIPS - look for a buyer with a magic 1.
I've now found out that my money plant is in the wrong corner. I'm also facing the wrong way when I go to sleep. I've not looked at moving the front entrance door, or shifting the house on its axis until it faces West. My Man is likely to put his foot down, firmly, and reject this extensive form of house renovation. Maybe this is what the WITN /SITN have done as the building project [s] do seem to be rather lengthy.
After I had walked around the house and compared compass readings with the Bagua I realised I will have to buy carloads of mirrors and hanging crystals to re-direct the energies to ward off malign influences in compensation for the defects in ourselves or the house. With so many mirrors and dangling crystals , our home will most likely resemble a psychics boudoir; interior decorating could take on a whole new slant.
I also learnt about the chinese years and I have become hooked on the idea of being an animal with an elemental bias. It makes a change from star signs and just being 2 fish swimming in opposite directions for all eternity. It seems I am an Ox . With negative Earth element. What did I find on reading the Ox characteristics? Well besides being loyal, patient and loving [but not romantic] and dependable - we do not 'appear to be imaginative'. The negative Earth element says "they are obsessional and prone to nit-picking" - THERE just what was I saying only last week!
