Feng Shui for Life or Job Transition
How Feng Shui Can Get You The Help You Need... When You Need It
Rita was a stay at home mother whose children had now all left home. She called for a consultation because now that they were all gone, she didn’t know what to do with her house, or with herself.
Should Rita go back to work? Start her own business? What would be her best direction in life?
Transitions can be painful, often difficult, and at times overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be this way...
One of the first things that struck me as I walked through the house was that it was easy to see what her husband liked to do (fishing, football), and it was easy to see who her children were and what their interests were. But nowhere could I find any evidence of what Rita liked to do or a space that she could call her own. Truly, her life had been totally dedicated to her family. So much so that she had become "lost" in her own home.
There were no solo photographs of Rita or with her friends – just family photos. I asked Rita what she liked to do. She enjoyed crafts and sewing, but had not been able to do these for years – all her crafty things were in containers in the basement and had not been touched for a very long time.
Rita was also interested in motivation and loved helping people – in fact people often came to her for advice - something she had done as a job before she had a family.
Dealing with life transition from a Feng Shui energy perspective
The most important thing we had to do was find a space that Rita could call her own. A space where she could set up her sewing machine and do her crafts.
I felt that she wasn’t going to get a clear idea of what she wanted to do until she found a space for herself in the house. She didn’t want to use any of the bedrooms, since she wanted to keep them in case any of the children came home unexpectedly. So we found an area in the basement - a room that had been used by the children and was no longer needed.
I suggested that Rita clear the room and make it hers - choosing a nice, bright color that made her feel good, putting out her craft and sewing items, photographs and artwork that she loved. I also asked her to start journaling, since that process can often help in uncovering passions and desires that have been long-hidden.
Several months later I heard from Rita. The one simple process of creating her own space within her home had brought clarity and opportunity. She had since started her own business, and she already had clients. She was taking training to be a life and motivation coach - things she was already doing. She was so happy - everything was falling into place.
We need our own "space"
This is a very common scenario. Whether you’re wondering what to do next because your children have left home or if you’re wanting a career or life change and are not sure what that looks like, the most important place to start is by creating a space that is yours.
Finding the "right" space and adjusting it so that it’s "just so"
Two of the most common questions I get are "Where should my personal space be?" and "What do I do with it?"
