Selecting Artwork With Feng Shui In Mind

As I work with my clients, I guide them through the process of how to select artwork with feng shui in mind.

The duologue sounds something like this: Do you love it? No. Do you need it? No. Why is it kept within your home? I don't know, I just bought it and put it up. 

Take that discussion and put it into context with that person's life. There is a good chance (based on the feng shui principles) the words they use to describe the artwork and connection they have to those objects within their home, in some form relates to their life experiences. 

Remember, feng shui is a symbolic language that talks to the conscious and unconscious mind. In general, the selection of artwork is suggested to be of images and subject matter that is inspiring you in for honoring the past, the current moment and for the future.

Take a look at the images above and see what you observe in how you respond.

The principles of Feng Shui just make good, practical sense.  Especially in our homes we should feel comforted and inspired.  If your personal space isn't doing that for you, it's time for a change.

Well the Bull charging certainly brings respect to mind (like I think I'd get out of the way if I was seeing it for real) Laura Cerrano . The stony forest makes me expect to see the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. No response from the flower, to generic. Oh for cute! with the bunny. How did I do?

Laura- I think that many of us keep things around for other reasons than that they give us pleasure and make us smile. Maybe it's time to to reevaluate what's cluttering our lives.

There is a time to declutter and put the old out of our life and welcome in the new.

Good luck and success.

I find it challenging to work in a cluttered work space . . . . and find that productivity drops.

Good luck and success.

I did not like the bull. I would not hang that up even if it was painted on velvet! (Family Joke)  I loved the next two and the last reminded me of sweetness of innocence.

So what does that tell you about me?
