Did you know you can even Feng Shui Your Bookshelf? Marla Stone, Professional Organizer, Décor and Feng Shui Specialist, and Lifestyle Coach says, "Yes you can even Feng Shui your Bookshelves". Use the Bagua above as your template. Place Bagua upright in front of your bookshelf so you know where your books can be placed in order to Feng Shui the bookshelf. So if you are facing your bookshelf, big or small, rectangular or square, simply divide the bookshelf into nine (9) equal parts.
The far left hand corner on the top of the shelf is for all of your money books. This is where you would put books by Donald Trump or Warren Buffet, or books that state something positive about gaining wealth.
The middle top of the shelf is where you place awards that you have received, and you can put a little décor into the shelf that signifies fame and recognition of you and your family. Any bright colored books on what you are famous for or what you would like to be recognized for can also go into this area.
The top right hand side of the shelves is where all the Love and Romance books go. I do not recommend Romance Novels since they actually can create depression if you become too involved in them. But go ahead and put Romantic Poetry, anything shaped like a heart or red or purple décor.
The middle left of the bookshelf is an excellent place to put some family pictures since that is the family area, also where you can put "getting along with family" books, and books related to family ties.
The middle, middle of the shelf is for Spiritual Books and Spiritual awareness type of books and books related to health and happiness.
The far right middle is for Children's books, books that promote creativity, art books or any books that make you feel more creative. This is also a good place for artwork décor.
The bottom Left is for books that increase your skills and knowledge. This is where you put books or information on a subject you would like to improve on.
The middle of the bottom of your shelf is where you put books related to your career or building a career and finally but not least the bottom right is for books related to helping people or support books that uplift you and help you feel more supported. It could also be a great place to put books that are from your ancestors or pictures of angels or uplifting spiritual leaders.
Organizing your bookshelf according to Feng Shui Principles can help you not only get organized but feel organized and it also impacts the nine areas of your life which Feng Shui addresses.
Take some time to Feng Shui your Bookshelves and your life will Change!
