Helpful People & Travel
One of my favorite things about my life with Feng Shui is that I find myself so often in the right place, at the right time, meeting the right people. Every time it happens, I think, “Thank you Feng Shui, and thank you Helpful People & Travel corner!” The Helpful Friends & Travel area represents your guides, your mentors and your support team, both seen and unseen.
We were not put on this earth to go it alone, even though it might feel like it at times. Do you ever find yourself thinking things like, “If I want it done right, I’m going to have to do it myself”? Getting into the flow of giving and receiving is a tough lesson to learn. I struggle with it, too. But the more I understand this area of my life, the less I struggle. It really is about helping and being helped, serving and being served. It’s about being compassionate toward others and their needs, and in turn, allowing yourself to be vulnerable enough to accept help in return. There’s no need to keep score.
Having your team assembled and working with you and for you makes your whole life easier. It smooths out your day and keeps the distractions and the energy suckers away.
This area is also related to travel. Whether you are commuting to work or taking a flight abroad, setting your intentions for a positive, safe and snafu-free experience can be done in the Helpful Friends & Travel area. If you want to travel more or less—or somewhere specific—this is where you do the work.
Just like the Relationships & Love area is related to the mother of the house, the Helpful Friends & Travel area is related to the father of the house. Often, when the Helpful Friends & Travel area is missing from the house or is in disarray, it will turn out that the father of the house works really long hours or often has an excuse for not being at home.
The Helpful Friends & Travel corner is in the far right corner, along the front wall of your home or room.
With your Helpful Friends & Travel area enhanced, you could possibly:
- Develop and access your higher power
- Attract mentors, teachers, guides, clients, customers or helpful people into your life
- Strengthen your spiritual life
- Increase compassion for self and others
- Have your life run more smoothly
- Get the help you need
- Be in the right place, at the right time, more often
- Attract the right people who are willing and able to help you
- Accomplish more with the help of others
- Find yourself being handled more equitably and honestly by others—both people you know and people you don’t know

Discovering your space…
What is your subconscious trying to communicate through your living space?
- 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 level of support in your life? Does this room help you feel connected and in the flow of life?
- 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.
