How Much Effort is Required to Transform The Energy of Your Home and Self With Feng Shui?

Laura Cerrano

To segue into this question, I invite you to read a brief true story. As I was shopping at Lowe's within the garden section of the store, I came across the Clearance Rack and found various flowers and plants that have been greatly discounted because they appeared to be on their last licks of life. 

I prefer purchasing from this section because on a very practical level, you save money, and on a spiritual level, it provides a simple, yet profound lesson.  There was a half dozen annuals that seemed pretty worn down. One of the employees was standing near by and saw me pick up the batch. She stepped a bit closer to me, leaned in, and said softly near my ear, "it's too bad they are finished blooming and will not make it." And then walked away. 

I kindly disregarded her comment and whispered to the stunted pink annuals, "forgive her, she does not see the potential in your ability to grow." So, I happily adopted them, along with another wilted plant. To provide a more solid environment of nourishment, I also bought organic soil to feed the baby plants and made sure to mindfully place them within my yard that would allow the most sufficient opportunity for growth according to the amount of light needed. After settling them back into the earth, I tended to them daily for about a week. Watering them for a moment or two during the morning hours, while also checking to make sure the leaves were lifting upward and to see if the vibrancy of color was returning to the plants aura. 

I'm happy to report, the pink annuals and salvia plant have become stronger in their presence and more brilliant with the color in their leaves and blooming flowers.  Do I still tend to them? Of course, but now they are more self-sufficient and do not require as much vigorous attention. It's more about maintaining.

From this story you can see It does not require much to encourage positive transformation. Being present and taking small simple steps is what contributes to the overall picture.  As you reach your goals for positive change, it's vitally important that you REMEMBER to maintain that beneficial energy of transformation and make adjustments as needed. In the world of Feng Shui, as you grow and develop so will your living and working environments.
