Happily Ever After - Finding Love with Feng Shui
I had been a divorcee and single mother for over 15 years, working hard to take care of my children, but making very little time for myself. When I finally decided I could put myself out there romantically and look for a life partner, I seemed to have very little success. I had dates and men were interested, but I wasn't looking for just anyone, I was looking for someone I could spend the rest of my life with.
I happened across some old articles I had cut out years before about feng shui and love (everything is for a reason, right?!), and there in the one article, it spelled out my problem.
Through the years since my divorce, I had collected figurines and artwork that represented my "standing strong as a woman", "a mother with her children". Although symbolic of the new empowered woman I was aspiring to be, someone who could stand on her own without a man, it was all "singular"...one woman standing alone or with her children. Feng shui is about creating your intention,and I had created a position of power and strength but being by myself or with my children.
So using the techniques and some feng shui cures, I removed any artwork from my bedroom that represented a woman "standing alone", and I incorporated everything in pairs. I added a second lamp, so I had a pair. I found these beautiful "pair" of morning dove figurines and placed them on my dresser. I added a pair of candlesticks beside my bed, two luscious plants in the corner...everything was in "pairs".
With each new addition I sent out the intention that I would find the perfect life partner, someone I could stand strong with and lean on through life. A month later, he walked into my life...yes, feng shui works, even in love.
Katherine, I love your story! Thank you so much for sharing!
