Feng Shui Crisis

by Stephanie Casher on February 20, 2006

Okay, I’ll admit it – I’m the stereotypical writer in the sense that I am prone to holing myself up in the house for days on end when I get into a “zone.” For the past three days I have literally set up camp in my living room. The comfy new futon I acquired on one of my many trips to Vallejo has only facilitated this laziness. As the long weekend draws to a close, I find myself in a bit of a dilemma.

My living room usually looks like this:

This morning:

Yes, that is a BED you see in the middle of my living room. I have a Feng Shui nightmare on my hands…

Feng Shui, to make a long story short, is used to create and maintain the flow of positive energy in a space. In theory, even “things” hold and store energy, and can contribute to balance or imbalance in our lives. One of the crucial elements of Feng Shui is to eliminate clutter. Clutter causes energy to pool and stagnate, and you want energy to be able to circulate freely in your space. Something needs to be done about this living room situation, pronto.

I wish I could just get rid of the new futon (which obviously I don’t have room for), but the problem is – I love it. So the only other option is to rearrange the whole room.

I stared at the room for a good 20 minutes this morning, and I think I have an idea. It will be a radical change, but it’s Springtime — Change is Good. Stay tuned to see the finished product…
