Creativity & Children
Take a look through a child’s eyes: the world is a magical place just waiting to be explored and played with! As adult's we can lose touch with this playful and creative way of being. To express yourself freely, without judgment…THAT’S PURE JOY! To have the openness of a child’s heart… can you imagine it? It actually brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it.
The Creativity & Children area is all about creation. The creation of art, music, projects, businesses, CHILDREN, everything! When you were a child, what did you enjoy creating? If you think about doing something creative now, what pops into your head? If you had all the time and money in the world and there were no judgments, how would you express yourself?
This area is also about knowing that, no matter what situation you run into, you will have access to a creative solution. That’s empowering, isn’t it?!
The Creativity & Children area is in the center of the right side wall of your home or room.
When you enhance your Creativity & Children area, you could possibly:
- Unblock your creativity
- Express yourself more freely and openly
- Freely think of creative solutions for any problem
- Get reacquainted with a hobby you once loved
- Make progress on a creative project
- Have access to a reservoir of ideas
- Improve your relationship with your children
- Get pregnant and have children
Discovering your space…
What is your subconscious trying to communicate through your living space?
While comfortably sitting in the Creativity & Children area of your home, take a long look around. Make the following observations:
- What do you see? What room are you in?
- How does the space FEEL? How do YOU feel in the space?
- Is the space clean, kept and open? Or is it cluttered, dirty and closed?
- What do you like about the space? What do you dislike about the space?
- Does the state of your space resonate with your current ability to be creative? Does the space reflect your ability to openly express yourself?
- Take a minute to just to sit and be quiet, look and listen, what is the space trying to tell you? What have you been afraid to notice? Write about your observations.

Enhancements for the Creativity & Children area
Power words: EXPRESSION, CREATIVITY, AUTHENTIC SELF, TRUTH
Colors: White. White represents innocence or a new beginning.
Metal: Metal is the element for this area of your home. Anything metal works! Silver, gold, metal picture frames, coins, jewelry, bells. The color white also represents metal in Feng Shui.
Light: Lamps light up your fun side and your creativity and can also spotlight your need to connect with your children.
Fresh Flowers: In yellows and whites.
Artwork: Any kind of art, sculptures or paintings that inspire you to be creative. Photos of you and your children laughing and having fun. If you are trying to get pregnant, you could hang up photos of the children in your extended family—nieces, nephews, cousins, friend’s kids—or find a photo from a magazine of a child that you think would look like your own.
Toys: Anything that inspires creative play.
Music: Music has the power to shift your mood. Put on something you like to dance to and shake it up! Musical instruments are great to keep in this area, too, especially if they are metal.
Kid stuff: Artwork, drawings, projects, good report cards.
Baby Stuff: If you are trying to get pregnant, place baby items here. Baby books, name books, baby blankets. Fill these items with the intention that they are for the baby that is on its way.

Creativity & Children area DON’Ts
If you want this area working at its best, make sure the space is clear of the following:
Fire melts metal, so get rid of it.
Similarly, minimize the use of red in this area. Red symbolizes fire, which, again, melts metal.
Dirt, dust, grime
Anything broken or leaking
Dead plants or dried flowers
Anything that doesn’t support your creative pursuits
