No guest today...so I got to wing it! What I teach in my workshops is that 1st off, you need to look at WHAT you ACTUALLY have in your closet. Have your Bagua Board in hand, know your 9 Life Areas and then organize your wardrobe based on this. I guarantee you that there will be a couple of Life Areas that are missing....AND that the missing Life Area will be 1 that you feel stuck in, in a rut or is literally missing from your life!
Now that you KNOW what is physically missing from your life (i.e. clothes, accessories, jewelry) and thusly, the Life Area that needs help, you can a) go shopping, b) trade w/some friends (we used to do this in college! I also guarantee you that each of your friends have "missing" areas of their wardrobes as well), c) go shopping in your closet and try and put some new outfits together!
It is possible to add to your wardrobe on a budget-Old Navy has dresses and skirts for $15! Hit the sales, use coupons & shop wisely. Remember that what is UNSEEN works just as well as what's SEEN-so hit Victoria Secrets, the lingerie dept at your local department store, and buy underwear in different colors, different styles and different materials to activate the needed Life Areas. Examples:
RED lace for a date w/your significant other, PINK for a just beginning relationship
PURPLE silk for abundance
TAN cotton briefs for health & well-being...Get the drift?
You can also utilize your accessories in this way as well...Think what Madeline Albright did w/her pins! In fact, she has a BOOK about her pins and their meanings and what message they conveyed in meetings...Do a "madeline" and find an accessory YOU can really work & own, and find examples that represent the 9 Life Areas and start wearing them!
It can be easy & fun once you get the idea...Not only can you use this for YOU to activate a Life Area, but you can also use these principles in wardrobe help for specific EVENTS. Thanksgiving is coming up...that's ABUNDANCE...Think purple, metalics for your colors. Think the water element and the metal element for shape & material. Think citrus (metal element scent) and Bergamot (water element scent) to wear. So a purple shirt/sweater, w/metal jewelry and a scarf as a belt or draped over shoulders...Get how this works? We'll talk more about this when we discuss Feng Shui Entertaining for the holidays in upcoming shows...
I hope you got some good tips, and another way of thinking how you can use Feng Shui in your life!...Happy Feng Shui-ing....DeAnna
