Recently I was reminded of our previous travails with water in this home when our washer got clogged and flooded the laundry room and the room right next to it -- the children's room.
My first reaction was to try to read what message the Universe was trying to give us about money. Floods inside the home are related to wasted money, but this didn't apply to us at the moment. Next I looked at what life area is represented in the sector of the home that was affected, in our case life area #7: Children, Creativity and Fun. My husband and I have been so focused in work and family duties --we have two small boys-- that in the last year we have not devoted enough time and energy to nourish ourselves with activities that give us pure enjoyment and during which we could only receive and not give.
Because we both are in serving healing professions, even though we love what we do, we need to take special care to "fill up the well" emotionally and spiritually, so that we do not drain our own energies.
This recent flood happened at a time when we had just completed one of our financial goals, and to me it signifies that we are at a moment of change, and that now we need to focus a little more in the enjoyment of life.
According to Feng Shui, enjoyment of life and spiritual fulfillment are considered the "parents" of the career area. When we take care of the former, the latter flows naturally. When joy is lacking, it becomes very hard to advance at work or in finances.
Take a look at your own schedule. Is there anything you do these days, just for fun? Are there any activities in your life where you are at the receiving end, instead of giving? How do you nourish your soul?
If you find that joy is missing in your life, increase the representation of the metal element in your home and in your life, which is expressed with the color white and pastel tones as well as metallic colors, spicy hot flavors and nostalgic music.
Very simple changes in your home and lifestyle can be conducive to deep transformations at the soul level. If you give Feng Shui a chance, the least that can happen is that your home will be more beautiful and harmonious, and the most that could happen... well, the sky's the limit!
