I received my feng shui masters certificate from the Wind and Water School of Feng Shui. A couple of years ago, they asked me to write a guest blog. Click the link to read the article I wrote, Bereavement Organizing and Feng Shui, first published on their website June 7, 2016.
Bereavement organizing with feng shui
On Sunday, Sarah and her husband went to the doctor since he had been under the weather for a while. “Pneumonia”, the doctor said, giving him some medication, “don’t go to work for a few days.” On Thursday, she called home from work to check on him but he didn’t answer, so she went home during lunch to check on him. He was already dead.
When someone passes away, someone else inherits their belongings. In these kinds of situations, there are a lot of emotions, a lot of questions, and often, a lot of stuff. Bereavement organizing is helping with situations like this, helping the inheritor with the things they have received.
Personally, I’m comfortable with death in a way that not everyone is. My comfort with death, along with seeing the need within my own life, has made my work in bereavement organizing a natural fit for me.
In feng shui, an important principle is that everything is energy and I’ve come to understand that our things affect us energetically on a conscious and subconscious level.
