“ The only thing that is constant is change ” – Heraclitus
In times where we feel pushed towards unexpected change we tend to seek comfort in that which is familiar. For some this can lead towards stock-piling and hoarding which communicates to your subconscious that you are in need, a message that can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
On the opposite end of the pendulum swing, a meticulously ordered home signifies that anxiety lurks with the slightest possibility of chaos, disorder, or violated house rules. If you recognise yourself creating or living in this scenario I would suggest to breathe when mess occurs and go with the flow a little more. You will eventually become more relaxed in your home, as will others.
I encourage my clients to refresh and rearrange their environments often as this leads to a sense of fresh new beginnings, positive Qi 气 energy and more acceptance of change in the wider realm. Start by moving your bed or desk. A new perspective can help you literally and figuratively see things differently. In an office environment we advocate to position your chair against a solid wall in view of the entrance. You will feel empowered and be able to see who is entering, not vulnerable or easily startled.
