Karla’s Little Piece of Feng Shui Paradise

My friend Karla lives in Australia, and I don’t know if you’ve been following the news, but over there they have had some of the longest and strictest lock downs in the world in the past two years.

This was brutal for Karla, who owns a small business. Even though she pivoted and adapted most of her business to the online world, she still took a hit.

She could have spent her time pouting and complaining about the pandemic and what governments have done or not done, but instead she put her efforts into improving her home. These endeavors kept her mind and her heart in a good place, and her home has become more of her little piece of paradise.

As she has worked on her home, other things in her life started to go well, in spite of the extremely challenging external conditions around her.

Work Instead of Anger to Create Beauty and Happiness

Every time Karla felt like she might be getting angry or despondent she put her energy into her home. Especially onto her garden.

First, she put her energy into turning her back yard into her dream back yard, so that friends could visit her outside.

Then she moved on to her deck and turned it into an outside living room, where she has a wonderful view of the lake.

Creating More Room for Life

And when that was done, she decided to turn her unattached garage, previously used for storage, into a “she-shed” where she can do some crafts and have extra room for visitors from out of town.

Take a look at this gorgeous flower bed she had built with retention wall stones. All ready for Karla to do her magic and plant something beautiful.

She-shed After

A former dilapidated garage – in such bad shape that it didn’t even work as storage – was transformed into a she-shed.

Karla replaced the garage door with a three-panel window, with a view to a beautiful lake.

She added an entrance door to the other side of the building, facing the gardens in the back yard.

The inside now has a kitchenette with a small dining table to one side, and a sleeping area on the other.

She also built a laundry room next to the she-shed, with a modern bathroom.

The she-shed has become her favorite place in the home and their guest room when they receive visitors from out of town.

I suggested that she would rent it out on AirBnB, but she answered, “Why would I do that? I want to enjoy it myself!”

A cylindrical wicker lamp adds an amazing lighting effect to the room.
Karla opted for open shelves rather than cabinets in the kitchenette to create spaciousness in this area.

How Did Karla Accomplish All This During COVID?

Karla is a consultant licensed to practice the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® System.

As a licensed consultant, she continues to get support from me and other licensed consultants in our online community.

Other gals in the group have also had amazing improvements to their homes. Soon I hope to show you some of their progress too.

This group has kept all of us sane.

Getting together with like minded people once per week to talk about how to turn their homes into dream homes has been amazing.

Everything You Believe to Be True About Life is Expressed in Your Home

You affect your home and your home, in turn, has an effect on you. You establish a feedback loop with your place.

The feedback loop may be positive or negative, but it’s never neutral.

Feng Shui – applied the right way – gives you control over what your home tells you, and whether your home is your supportive partner or a constant drain.

Let the home take care of you by applying the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® System with Moni.
