I think that it’s pretty well accepted these days that what we think and how we act create our reality. Our mind is a very powerful tool and it can help us get more of what we want, or it can help us get more of what we don’t want. The choice is ours.
According to the movie “The Secret”, the Law of attraction is always working. If we take the point of view that this is true, then whatever you think about, you will create in your life.
So if you worry about not having enough money, you will not have enough money. If you constantly tell yourself that you’re tired, you will feel tired. If you tell yourself every time you come home that you don’t like where you live, you will never feel at home there. You get the drift.
On the other hand, if you think about things that you want, things that make you happy, you will be attracting more of that to you.
On an energetic level there is something going on here. I can’t explain it. There are lots of people claiming to have found “THE secret” to creating the life of your dreams. Many of them sell you courses, literature, coaching seminars, videos etc. etc. showing you “exactly how to do it”. That’s all well and good. Except that I don’t think there is ONE way that will suit everybody. We all process information differently and different ways and techniques will suit some people and not others. I think the problem is this – people will buy the stuff and never actually do anything with it.
It can be so much simpler than that. Monitor your own thoughts and work on changing them out to things that serve you. And then ACT on these positive thoughts. DO something! I’m not an expert at this in any way, and I’m chipping away at it. I’m getting there. I see the changes happening for people after I have helped them set up their homes to be supportive of their health, wealth and relationships. I see the outer change in their environment help propel the inner change forward.
I read through an old journal of mine a couple of days ago. A journal that I wrote over one long weekend in September 2003. It was a self development course that I did at that time and the focus was on letting go of what no longer was serving me and then looking to the future and what I wanted to create.
This is what I wrote: “I want to live in a house by the beach and have a career that I find fulfilling and that is of service and help to others”.
Nine years later. Here I am. I live in Manly, I have a 2 minute walk to one of the world’s most beautiful beaches (at least I think so!) and I work as a Feng Shui consultant which I find very fulfilling and it certainly helps people. So that worked.
Did I have doubts along the way? Yes. Did I focus on this and think positively about it all the time? No. Most of the time I have not been actively thinking about it at all.
And yet, here I am.
So have a look at where you are today and reflect back on how you got there. What did you do and what didn’t you do to create the life that you have? And be aware that your thoughts have power and that this power is real. And know that your home can energetically support you in making your dreams come true.
Love your home and show it!

Happy Feng Shui Friday!
PS. The course that I did and that really suited me is called the isa Experience. You can check it out here.
