I'm going to talk about the compass mapping or the compass school of Feng Shui…
Over the years as a Feng Shui expert and by working directly with clients I have seen incredible transformations of using Feng Shui to amplify creative thinking.
I saw a client activate the energy of her home using Feng Shui and started painting, something she hadn’t done since she was a child. She felt a call to start expressing herself through paint. She has created amazing artwork that look like masterpieces and now sells her art.
Feng Shui is all about calling in source energy and balancing the home under the concept of yin and yang. So when we bring our homes into balance, we also become more balanced. When you’re balanced, you connect more with your creative side / the feminine side, which is our artistic creation side.
If you are naturally artistic, Feng Shui can amplify this tendency. You can also start using Feng Shui to support you in becoming more creative.
Here are 3 things you can do to bring more creativity to your home and life:
1. Decide how to express yourself
Ask yourself, how do I want to express myself creatively? Then, set some intentions for your home.
It is really important to know what you want to do and what you want to achieve, so be clear about what it is that you want to do.
If you want to start painting, get yourself some paints, get the equipment that you need.
2. Create a space to get creative in.
Once you know how you want to be creative, you’ll need to create the space. Literally. If you don’t have that space aligned and set up, practicing your new form of creativity is not going to happen.
I’ve seen clients use a cupboard to store their creative items. It doesn’t have to be fancy or cost a lot of money. You must make a space for your creativity because if you don’t have space for it, you’ll never actually do it.
Personal story: When I wanted to paint more, I bought myself some new beautiful paints of all my favorite colors. Then I found a space in my home that I could store them in that were also easy to access. Then, I decided to put some time aside for when I would actually do this.
Now you may be asking, what does this have to do with Feng Shui? Remember Feng Shui is about setting up our environment and making space for what it is that we want with our intentions.
3. Look at the creative area in your home
So the creativity area is the Western part of your home. (If you don’t know where the west area is, get a compass out and have a look.) The west area is generally also associated with new beginnings, fertility, and creativity.
Pro Tip: Don’t worry if it’s your utility room, bathroom, or living room. It will all work out. 😊
Think about your creative practice like a little seed and that little seed needs to be looked after and planted in a beautiful fertile environment. Then, take a notepad and journal those intentions from before and leave them in the Western part of your home, maybe behind a picture frame or even in a drawer.
Assess the area and make sure there’s nothing broken or not working. These items could be depleting the energy of that area which then affects the energy of your creativity. Clean up these items and feel the new energy with your left-behind intentions.
You could also add artwork of your favorite artist. Pop some images of that person who you want to connect with or to use as your muse for your art and your creativity would be great to add to your creativity area.
