Feng Shui... Does it actually work?

Published:

Last Edited: August 6, 2005, 10:25 pm

I decided to re-arrange my room today... not for any particular reason other than I thought I needed a change. I usually change everything up about once a year just for aesthetics, but I decided today to try the principles of Feng Shui and see if it seems to work.

Nothing yet.

Seems like I'm more tired now with the new arrangement than I was with the old one. I thought it was supposed to improve your mood, help you get more energy, and the like... I'm now more tired, a little moody, and just feeling blah. Think I might change it back if this lasts for more than a couple days.

The money issue is still haunting me too... When we went on shutdown at Visteon at the beginning of July, I was pretty much OK with being caught up on bills... Seems like those 2 weeks without pay killed my finances, which is why I'm working so hard at Taco Bell and working so many more hours. I caught up this week, and just thought I would buy something for me for once, rather than spend it on gifts for others. Of course, my shopping side took over (and maybe my idiot side for buying that stupid mystery envelope - let's just hope it doesn't turn out to be bad) and I went overboard...again. It seems that whenever I actually do have a few extra bucks lying around, I want to spend it, and spend it now.

I know I'm the only one who can control what I do, but it just seems like money comes and goes too fast for me. When you have bills from years ago that you're still paying on today, it gets to you after a while. That's where my Visteon checks go to, and my TB checks (which are not normally over $100) are my spending money.

Let's hope this Feng Shui works and my mood improves, so I can go through a day without worrying about what person wants their money next.

You might consider getting or making one of those Feng Shui hexagons with the mirror in the center... you can make one using one of the small dome mirrors for a rear-view stickon from the auto parts house. Cut the thing out, use a wood burner to burn Feng hexagrams into the surface.

Yeah, my thought is it works, provided you throw in daily affirmations and such like.

Thanks Jack... haven't really read up on it that much, so any ideas are good ones.

I've checked out Feng Shui a bit, and it seems to me that even if you don't believe in the "flow of the chi" and all those things, that the principles of setting up a room at least results in a pleasing and efficient design.
