Today’s fast feng shui is all about mining the riches you have already.
That’s right, you already have everything you need to have a fantastic home & life!
Everything else will fall into place if you start from this premise!
Five Steps To Using What You Already Have To Make A Home & Life Upgrade:
Step One: Forgiveness. Forgive yourself. Seriously, don’t forget this step. If you are feeling like you need to make a change, you might also be feeling like you failed in some way. You didn’t. Life happens, and to get to a place where you are ready to take a step up takes as long as it takes.
Try to not compare yourself to other people. Instead, tune in and see if you are in some way feeling blame.
Forgive other people if you have to, no matter how hard it is. Forgiveness is a transformative process. It sets you free. It also creates space to make stuff happen… as we are about to do!
Step Two: Take stock of what you have. Even if you have nothing more than a mattress on a floor in an empty room, you are starting in a great place. That single mattress could be the best mattress ever! I am betting you have a bit more than a mattress. Take some time to take stock of all you have in your house. Also, do that gratitude list of all that you have in your life. You may be shocked by just how much you actually have.
Step Three: Renovate something that stands out to you. Make a small but meaningful home repair. A new chlorine filter for your shower may set you back $20 but will turn your shower into far more of a paradise. Scrub your kitchen floor until it shines. Buff out the scratches in your coffee table.
One little renovation will lead to more. It never fails. These little “makeovers” are amazing.
Use the Internet DIY community as a source of huge inspiration. For very little money or “artistic talent” you can fix or re-purpose just about anything!
Step Four: Refresh your energy.THIS Home Energy Makeover is a good starting point, and you can personalize it. If you are having trouble sleeping or are going through a breakup/romance slump, turn on some music and bounce on your bed. Shake out your pillows, too!
Step Five: Add some feng shui practical magic. This is where it gets really fun! This entire blog is packed with ideas to help you make meaningful feng shui shifts using what you have in your home.

Remember that as your home changes, your life changes. As your life changes, so should your home. You will have such power and support as you grow! Enjoy the radiance! xoxo Dana
