Simple Shui – A Party Raid!

It’s the holiday and party season!  So, our AYRIAL team reached out to feng shui expert Amanda Gibby Peters for a few tips!  And, she never fails to open up possibilities we often don’t think of!

So, let’s get this party started!

I wanted to share a process that people could easily follow to de-clutter their living room relatively quickly. and since this request coincides with high-spirited celebrations + merrymaking in the forecast, i concocted a simple pre-party shui sweep that’ll leave you plenty of time to put on that party dress! you ready, soul shine?

  • Divide your living space into 4 quadrants. does one look more cluttered or out of balance than the others? if so, begin there.
  • Grab a box, and remove every other thing (not holiday related, if the house is festively dressed) from the shelves and tables. side note: if you’re struggling with fatigue and easily overwhelm, keep that little box of goods tucked away for a week. Too much stuff in a room can be a slow but steady juice drain. After one week’s reprieve, only return what you would buy again.
  • Sift through those piles of books + magazines. If it unleashes high octane happiness, keep it. But if it barely registers a pulse, get rid of it. when we hoard other people’s thoughts and ideas, we have a murky time discerning our own inner wisdom. so, let it go and your voice will flow!
  • Finally, quickly dust the area.
  • Go back to step 1, and repeat through the remaining 3 quadrants.
  • BONUS TIP: simmer some orange rinds + cloves + cinnamon while you shimmy around — it’s the motivation brew that keeps our energy percolating!
