Boy, it’s been a long time since I’ve done a book review, hasn’t it? Well, this one is a fun little read, but don’t let the size of this book fool you. If you’re interested in feng shui, the book 27 Things to Feng Shui Your Home delivers just what it promises. You get 27 things—or little projects—to help you clear clutter and add feng shui elements to your home. The book is written by Tisha Morris, a certified life coach, energy healer, feng shui consultant, and yoga instructor.
The book is filled with little nuggets of information which make the topic of feng shui accessible and less intimidating. One of my favorite tips is #15—“Make Your Least Favorite Room Your Favorite.” In this section of the book, the author talks about ways to transform your least favorite room by clearing the clutter, painting, adding new lighting, and bringing at least one item you love into the space.
Shortly after reading this book, I decided it was time to take action on my least favorite room in our home—our master bathroom. We’ve begun the process of clearing the clutter—the outdated décor, paint, and wallpaper border, and we’re planning to paint the room, add new lighting, and bring in other elements we love.
The crazy thing is this—even though our bathroom looks worse now that the renovation is in process than it did before we began, it already feels better. The energy in the space is shifting—transforming from negative to positive. Now, whether you buy into the energy thing or not, if you’ve ever decluttered a space before, you know the feeling I’m talking about. And it feels good.
The book includes other terrific nuggets such as inspiration to get rid of “just in case items” and one of the 27 things is to clean your windows, which I can attest to first-hand feels pretty darn good. (And who knew I was feng shuing my house? That’s pretty cool!)
If you’re interested in feng shui but aren’t sure how to get started, consider this book. It’s a quick read and it’s action-oriented. And as you know, I’m a big fan of taking action to create change.
What’s on your bookshelf right now? Any good organizing, decluttering, or feng shui books? I’d love to hear. Thanks for sharing!
