It’s been a while since I’ve written any feng shui posts. It’s a
frequent topic for conversation in a couple of my hatha yoga classes.
Yoga. Feng Shui. Well, yes….it does make sense.
Feng Shui is all about looking outside of us to see the things that
usually go un-noticed. Un-noticed, not because they’re hard to see
(which is possible), but un-noticed because we have probably become
habituated or quite accustomed to the sight of what we’re looking at.
For instance, my garage roof is looking quite………………………….untidy.
It’s been that way ever since I’ve moved into the house. It doesn’t
leak or create any problems…..it just looks a little messy. It has an
old wooden roof, moss growing all over it, one shake at the top/center
is missing and, the old white aluminum door is partially green from
lack of sunlight. Last year I spent the entire spring/summer season
cleaning out the inside which is now quite orderly, for me. My garage
sits in the south east corner of my property, sometimes known as the
“resource” gua. In terms of local space feng shui (astrology) the garage is on the line that represents the North Node. Hmm. That’s a tricky one to delineate.
Talented feng shui consultants are able to look at things like my garage and get
a felt sense of where this untidiness or disorder is showing up in my
life. It may or may not have a direct effect on those areas of my life
symbolized by the placement of the garage. It’s possible that a
different ‘polarity’ is being affected. It helps to have a clear mind
when considering (con-sider: with the stars) all of the possibilities.
HOW WE CHOOSE TO THINK about something we see affects the outcome. Yes?
Yoga is all about what is going on inside. What is present
emotionally/mentally (especially on the unconscious level) when I look
at my garage? Am I disturbed?
I kinda like it, actually. …….adds a bit of a rustic feeling to
the plastic veneer of typical suburbia. Cleaning it out was a good
thing, it created clear space for other things to happen…………and
A LOT HAPPENED during that time of clean out. Perhaps I’ll tell the
story someday soon.
For now, I think I’ll just go and pick up all the sticks and
branches that have fallen around the yard over the past few windy days.
It’s good to keep the clutter to a minimum. There’s a New Moon today at
18 degrees of Pisces. The sabian symbol is, “In a gigantic tent,
villagers witness a spectacular performance”
