It’s a bold statement infused with a bit of heightened disbelief, but anything really can transform today if you need it to happen.
It’s not magic.
It’s not suspended disbelief or ridiculousness.
But it does work instantly to turn obstacles into solutions.
A shift in your perspective really does change anything. And that includes: problems, challenges, your home, your job, your mood, your style, your faith … anything.
We all know by now, it’s likely, that potential is unlimited.
And, for instance, the white twill fabric above that looked dingy and frayed looked like nothing appealing until I realized it was perfect to twist and tie up with rubberebands, soak in cold salted water and then swirl in a pot of turmeric spice.
Two hours later, it was a sunburst of beauty that has made many very excited, me especialy, as it hung beside me in the boling heat of my house yesterday.
And the boiling heat of my house, by the way, also transformed from something oppressive into the perfect environment to do a lot of this fabric transformation and dry things in an hour to excellence. It also was the perfect space to start drinking twice as much water, to ramp up my dogs bath schedule and more.
I should add that same boiling heat had my cursing my house and the lack of outlets for an extra air conditioner that same morning, and that fabric had me feeling stressed tat I wouldn’t be able to deliver a wall hanging to Brooklyn today because it was so unimpressive and it was also so hot in my house… and…
Yet, it was all an opportunity. And everything I needed to do was all was done faster that I could have ever imagined.
I’m not perfect, enlightened or magical.
But I am in the habit of having to find a way to make things work… often, and often very quickly!
Do you have something that needs to change today?
A mood, a problem, something you dread, something you can’t face…?
Start by changing the way you are looking at it.
A problem is usually well on the road to a solution. Uncomfortable situations bring a change for new comfort. Challenge is a way to see what you’re really made of and how much more you can give and create.
It’s not magic. It’s practical.
Start changing space.
I arrived in New Jersey last night and my friend lit a wand of sage and saged me, her brother and then the whole house. We explained to her brother that sage helps clear te air and removes static and heavy staleness from things.
Her brother joked that I should make a “feng shui dust” that people can sprinkle around their house to change space.
“Yo, this is a great idea. Feng shui dust. People will buy it, I know it…”
I laughed. My Jersey people are always innovating and always making something happen.
But you know what?
Chances are if I ever had the crazy idea to create a powder to sprinkle around the house to create change (* I wouldn’t!), people would buy it. It’s common to reach for things outside yourself that seem to be missing when you’re struggling. I do it. You probably do, too.
But I am always reminded, out of necessity (after all, if I don’t find a solution, who will?!) that I am feng shui magic dust. You are feng shui magic dust.
Like Dorothy is reminded by Glinda the Good Witch in The Wizard of Oz, “You alwsy had the power my dear. You just had to learn it for yourself.”
Take that power and use it to see things in a new way.
Rearrange your furniture.
Redo your closet.
Change the way art is hung on the walls.
Use a cold as a way to start eating better or taking vitamins.
Use your problems as a road to changes that expand life.
This is the way to truly transform everything and anything right now.
You may not be able to change anyone, but you can change your realtionship to anyone. You may not be able to make money fall from the sky, but you can use a financial drought to innovate on what you can do to make more money now and into the future.
For everything you “can’t” do there are an infinite number of things you can do.
Flip it in your head.
Stick to “can.”
Because you can.
And I am always excited to hear what you change when you decide to do it!!!
