“Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.”  ~ Gilda Radner

This week we embark on our journey into section 2 of our space.  Standing at the doorway of your bedroom, point your right hand to the far right corner of the back wall.  This is your RELATIONSHIP area.  Remember the tic-tac-toe grid we placed on the floorplan. 
Examine closely what you have in this area.  One of my favorite accounts in this area came from a colleague, Barbara, who was doing an evaluation for a single woman, whom we will call Sally. Sally desperately wanted her live-in boyfriend to marry her.  Remember that feng shui is about making changes. The space directs us and is the tool to make those changes. 
As Barbara proceeded with her evaluation, she noticed something very curious in this area, the area of RELATIONSHIP.  There was a sheet covering an object which was almost as tall as she was.  Now, FS practitioners are not shy, just as a doctor may not be shy when examining a patient.  The client knows and has given permission for her to look inside, outside and upside down her home discovering clues to her undesirable situation so the remedy can be created.
They looked at each other as the practitioner raised the sheet exposing a beautiful upright framed harp.  Symbolically, this musical instrument could be very conducive to romance by inducing peace and serenity, a dreamy environment.  However, Barbara noticed something very blatant about this piece.  Several of the strings were broken.  Any items in your home which are broken and need repaired need to be 1-repaired or 2-removed from the home as in given away or thrown away. 
Sally explained that she loved playing the harp but had not done so for a time since it was in need of new strings.  Barbara got a hit.  This RELATIONSHIP area was telling her that “no strings attached” was a comfortable situation for an uncommitted mate and in order for Sally to make changes to her situation, this repair needed to be accomplished immediately, which it was. 
Several weeks passed and I know what you think I’m going to tell you, that the boyfriend asked her to marry him.  I am not. They broke up and the boyfriend moved out. 
Disclaimer: Feng shui creates change.  As the wind (feng) blows, the water (shui) sways, hence feng shui.
But that is not the end of this story.  Sally in essence DECLUTTERED her space. His absence opened up the space and Sally met a new person who was of boyfriend material and not afraid to commit to strings attached and a relationship and that is the end of the story.
Feng shui is about making changes in your life. Those changes may not always work out the exact way you envision, but they will move you in the direction of your goals, dreams and intentions. 
What do you have in your relationship area?  How is your relationship working for you?  This does not only pertain to a romantic relationship.  It can be any relationship that is you and one other person, a best friend, a sister, a co-worker.  Enhance that relationship intentionally by what you place in this area. Place things in pairs like two candlesticks or two framed prints on the wall. Keep them close to each other so they support each other.  Set your intention.  Examine your space.  Create your remedy and hold on to your hat.  Changes will be coming your way.  xo mo
