A Special Visitor in a Special Place
Imagine that a very powerful person has invited you to spend time in his mansion and has instructed his butler to cater to your every need and wish. In the beginning, the butler moved to action as soon as you voiced a desire or said you needed something. However, sometimes you asked for something one day and by the next day you had forgotten that you asked for it and acted surprised at getting it. Other times you asked for something while in the midst of a negative emotion and you didn’t really mean what you said.
The fact is this butler has caught heat from the master because you have asked for things many times and when you got them it turned out that you didn’t actually want them, or that you wanted them but they weren’t actually good for you… so now the butler has put you on “mute.” Rather than listening to your every word, he observes you very carefully to make sure you really want something before he brings it to you.
Think of the Universe as God’s butler, constantly observing you to figure out what it is you really desire. The Universe doesn’t listen to your every thought or to every request, because thoughts and desires succeed each other very fast in your mind, changing from one moment to the other. The Universe “listens” to your beliefs, and your beliefs are expressed in your actions and in your values.
Enter Feng Shui
Feng Shui is an extremely efficient and effective way of letting the Universe know what you really want in your life. Feng Shui assesses the condition of your life by looking at the effects you have produced in the condition of the spaces around you. When Feng Shui identifies that you are giving the Universe the wrong messages about what you want — in other words that you are expressing self-sabotage — Feng Shui can help you by making small changes in your environment that give the right messages to you and the Universe, usually working with items you already have.
