Is that even a word – Shui’d? I have no idea. I don’t know much about Feng Shui either, except that it has to do with energy and flow. I don’t know the rules of it but I spent the last several hours upending my living room-turned-workshop: taking stuff out that didn’t belong there, tossing unnecessary items (yay me!), rearranging my workspace and reorganizing my essential oils, herbal remedy ingredients, containers, candles, incense, lamps, table, diffuser, mailing packaging and supplies, you name it. Okay so my hallway is a little off for a moment, but the energy in my living room is GREAT! It feels like there is a flow to my space now, so maybe there is something to this Feng Shui after all. Why not?
My day started off not so great, not feeling well. Once my sinus headache cleared, I decided to tackle my work space to make it more me-friendly. It’s amazing how much your ‘space’ can affect your outlook and how you feel – sometimes we just have to step back and take care of ourselves. THEN we can help others so much more effectively!
I also made a nourishing homemade soup, not exactly like Grandma’s chicken soup recipe, but I did start with a great turkey bone broth I made and froze not long ago. Chicken broth (or turkey) is so good for you, and really does help when you’re down with a cold or the flu. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, immune boosting action. Add in fresh veggies and herbs like carrots, celery, onion, garlic, ginger, squash, thyme, greens, potatoes (whatever combo you like), and you’re packing some serious nutrition to restore you. A little meditation, some herbal tea with ginger honey, and I’ll settle down tonight so much better than I began this morning. I begin and end my days with prayers of thanks and gratitude. Some days I feel it more than others. Whether I “feng shui’d” anything today or not, I’m feeling extra thankful, and truly blessed. Peace out.
