For the people who haven't started their Feng Shui journey grab a paper and pen and let's get started...for those who have started, I suggest that you do the same because you still may learn something that can help you on your Feng Shui Journey.
In Feng Shui we believe that your environment is supposed to support you. If it doesn't then you need to make some Feng Shui adjustments. I would recommend that you try to get everyone who is living in the home involved in this assignment however, if that isn't possible continue on with your Feng Shui adjustments and hopefully when they see your amazing results they will want to learn more or maybe even help out down the road.
Step #1 - .Make 2 columns at the top of your page - "Working" and "Not Working".
Step #2 -Then on the left hand side of those two headings write down each of the life categories - Wealth/Prosperity, Fame/Reputation, Relationship/Love, Family, Health, Children/Creativity, Skills/Knowledge, Career/Life Path and Helpful People/Travel.
Step #3 - Then starting answering the following questions and adding them to the appropriate column.
For example Helpful People question:
Are you finding that you are the one that does everything in the house? Are you having a hard time finding the right person for the job i.e. painter, realtor, contractor etc...Would you like to travel more for business or pleasure or would you like to do less Travelling?
- Traveling just the right amount for my business

-I can't get the kids to pick up after themselves
then continue onto the next question and so on...
