She's a little heavy on Bali and their customs - and definitely has her "fundamentalist" tendencies - but in general, I think she says what needs to be said about this topic better than anyone else I've read. Great tips, if you can let go of the "this is the way it's done in Bali and this is the ONLY way it will work" vibe. Really - you CAN be more flexible with some of the ideas and they will still work. It's the intention that matters :- A great book for Reiki practitioners, too!
Put that energy to use in your home and watch your plants and relationships thrive! Jan 08, Melissa Rae rated it it was amazing. One of two honestly 'life changing' books that I've read. I'd been looking for a new house for some time and it wasn't happening. I read this book, did some signifcant clutter-clearing and rearranging at home and within two months had found a new place and moved in. One that ticked every box on my wish list, and then some. I wrote a letter of thanks to Karen who published it on her blog: How clutter clearing can speed up finding a new home.
View 1 comment. This book was good, but it was kind of a letdown after reading Kingston's follow-up book Clear your Clutter with Feng Shui. I know that book developed from a chapter in this book, but I felt that it was a lot more accessible. This book was a bit too technical for the novice and didn't have enough of the why and was frankly a bit didactic compared to the kindly, friendly, helpful tone of Clear Your Clutter.

This one I put down a few pages before the end a few months ago and I've already forgotten most of it. View 2 comments. Apr 05, Helynne rated it it was amazing. This is a diverse and imformative, book on how to make our homes and offices more aesthetically pleasing as well as more environmentally friendly so that they will nurture and encourage our personal productivity and peace of mind.
Call in the angels and your own personal guides and helpers whatever feels appropriate to you" How This is a diverse and imformative, book on how to make our homes and offices more aesthetically pleasing as well as more environmentally friendly so that they will nurture and encourage our personal productivity and peace of mind. How could our imaginations not run wild with inspiration like that? Although reading this book did not really turn me into a feng shui expert--for example, I still do not diligently check on whether my furnishings and the placement thereof are in proper sync regarding their relation to the elements of air, water, metal, fire, and earth--I still learned a lot about how to make small, but positive, environmental changes at home and at work.
For example, for years I had been guilty of placing a big mirror on top of a bedroom dresser and leaning it back against a wall because I was too afraid to try to hang it up because of its girth. This book taught me that a mirror should never be leaned against a wall, and spurred me to stop being such a wimp and get out the hammer and strong screws to hang the thing up.
Other advice is obvious, but so needful of repetition, such as the need to work on a clear, uncluttered desk. Kingston gives pointers on the placement and use of home applicances, televisions, computers, celluar phones, beepers and pagers, microwave ovens, etc. This might well have saved me a brain tumor! On Kingston's advice, I bought several sets of "harmony balls" but look for the term "meditation balls" if you wish to buy them on-line or in stores with the sweet chiming sounds that help clear out "stale energies" in our homes and offices, and allow more positive energies in.
Can you imagine all the stale energies that had been hiding for years behind my big mirror? This book is filled with so much more advice about letting more sacredness enter our homes that I cannot begin to describe it all, but it is such a fascinating point of departure for home and spiritual improvement! Sep 26, Devika Koppikar rated it really liked it. The funniest part of the book was when the author said that if you get a gift you don't like, the best thing to do is to get rid of it. Sometimes, the best place for a gift like this is the garbage!
Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui by Karen Kingston
Some things in the book were impractical like the rituals she recommends performing wherever you go. This is not practical for everyone…. Also, I can see some people becoming superstitious and fearful after reading her book. In sum, as long as you keep this book in perspective, it is a great read Mar 15, Abigail Sarah Brody rated it really liked it.
A book that altered my life since when I bought it in a spiritual bookstore on Melrose in LA. I always sense that everything is connected and that our homes are our sanctuaries, so are our cars and any place—especially the clutter clearing part has been working wonders for me; I attest, whenever I feel stuck in life, I begin to clean out my drawers if not my entire space: currently I am moving so the book is even more useful. I give only four stars because aspects if the book can make you f A book that altered my life since when I bought it in a spiritual bookstore on Melrose in LA.
I give only four stars because aspects if the book can make you feel never pure, perfect and ready enough to do the clearing ceremony's yourself, in addition to simply distilling, organizing and pairing down. Also the book design, typography, illustrations, is not very enticing, if not dull—almost the visual opposite of the beautiful message the book has to share.

Feb 25, Marco rated it it was amazing Shelves: spirituality , health-nutrition , favorites. An amazing book that left me flabbergasted! It actually doesnt go very deep into what could be defined as 'traditional Feng Shui' but rather focuses on the art of Space Clearing and spiritual purification of both people and spaces. Karen Kingston also gives some very valuable pieces of advice on how to identify and protect oneself against all sorts of 'subtle' pollution electromagnectic, electric and so forth.
Sep 11, Angie rated it it was amazing. I absolutely adore this book. One part make your house nice, one part introduction to sacred healing and ritual. The author draws on experience from Bali and world travel to give a very intelligent view on what houses can be, and how to sanctify your space, and thereby, your life. What I learned in this book has stuck with me for years.
It's a treasure. Jan 05, Ann Kucera rated it it was amazing Shelves: feng-shui. Karen Kingston provides a way for you to use clapping to clear energy from your space in Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui. In addition, chapter 6 gives an extremely detailed list of items to complete to prepare for an energy clearing. It's a book that will expand your understanding of what is possible with energy. Aug 29, Del rated it it was amazing.
I've tried to read a number of books on feng shui and never found one I get could get through. While this probably wouldn't be considered an all-encompassing book on feng shui, it was very thought provoking and one I will seriously consider buying for future reference. May 23, Lisadecorates rated it it was amazing. An amazing little find. The information in this book is accurate and the author is right when she cautions the reader about clearing space themselves in a careful and respectful way. This is serious space clearing with serious results.

It really helps!

It would have been easy to lose one's sanity. I have used the ceremony several times and I always found it emotional, positive, and uplifting. However, I can't get myself to join Karen Kingston in her glorification of Bali. My husband and I went there in for a month and we had good advice from friends living on the island for decades.
