Feng Shui For Creativity: 10 Ways To Get Inspired And Invoke Your Genius

Radical Self Love Coven has been such a fun adventure. We’re onto our third module, Feng Shui, having already completed our spellwork and tarot classes. This module is really fun because as we all complete the assignments (like writing love letters to our apartments!), clear clutter and rearrange furniture, we can feel the energy in our lives change and expand.

In addition to the prescribed coursework, all our witch babies have access to the teachers of each module. The questions that have been coming in for this section are great, from, “How can I improve my love life using Feng Shui?” to queries about prosperity.

Recently, witch baby Jayde asked our (truly brilliant) teacher, Amanda Gibby Peters, how she could amp up her creativity and writing through using Feng Shui. I loved Amanda’s answer so much that I wanted to share it with you. I hope it helps you too!

AMANDA SAYS: “Another fabulous Q, Jayde, and it just so happens I work with so many writers + creative artists! So, I know these shifts + suggestions make magic happen! Don’t feel the need to hustle + do all of these – this list is for you to graze on, pick a few to get you started, and come back to as you need more motivation!

1. It is important when we begin any new endeavor to create open space for inspiration + flow. So, two immediate suggestions: Clean your desk completely. Take everything off + out. Wipe it down, top to bottom, and hold the vision of your writing intentions steady while you clean. Only put back what you need, use, +/or LOVE. Secondly, clear a small space {if possible} and leave it empty. It could be a shelf or drawer or a few folders. Intention here is key — you are leaving open room to receive.

2. If you like to pile things, give yourself ample horizontal space. If you like to file things, allow yourself plenty of vertical space. This will help feed your creative flow + momentum early in the process.

3. What inspires your creativity? Find one way to anchor a talisman as you begin — personalizing your work space is like working from the inside out, and it will help pull out the stories you are ready to tell.

4. Bright yellow flowers invite clarity while writing, and orange flowers inspire + connect us with new ideas {plots, characters, development}. Print a small picture of some blooms you LOVE + place it in a white frame on your desk or wall.

5. The sound of water playing softly in the background creates a nourishing + ‘in the flow’ feeling. {Most important, though, is that you LOVE the sound.}

6. On those white boards, hang up any letters, notes, or words of encouragement to boost + corral energies for future recognition of your writing. (Jayde said that she had white boards hung up near her desk.)

7. Light a candle at the beginning of each writing session. Set the intention that you will hold focus on your writing until you blow out the candle. It is more ritual than magic, but it sets the tone and quickly communicates to our subconscious that we are ready to write. And getting our conscious + subconscious aligned makes the process so much easier.

8. Quartz crystals improve our luck with creativity and helpful people {connections, network, word of mouth, etc.}.. The pyramid shape is representative of the fire element, specifically helping us reach for something that feels beyond us + encourages us to joyfully accept and acknowledge what is. On a side note: triangles, pyramids, diamonds, etc. send energy out + up and keep things moving. So, if you come across a quartz pyramid serendipitously, take that as a sign + bring it home with you for your desk!

9. Since horizontal surfaces represent creativity, clear any chaos off your desk at the end of every writing session. And see this ritual as the invitation for creativity to have room to show up again the next day.

10. Finally, as a writer myself, I can’t possibly emphasize this enough: Write every damn day. This clears the cobwebs + makes us lighter and more relaxed + helps us identify our voice. Your best stuff will come to the surface if you get all those tight spots inside you open, so write. Make lists. Journal. Commit to the craft, and the creativity will follow. xo”

So helpful! I love these tips, and I’m going to use a few myself…
