Is your relationship in the garbage?

My spouse and I have a really awesome relationship until trash day that is. Tony takes the garbage out in our house and often instead of taking it all the way to the trash shoot, he leaves it in the hallway just inside our front door.  Recently we began bickering and getting in each other’s way a lot, which escalated into a fight.  One of those “I don’t know why we are fighting, but we are fighting anyway fights.” It is a rare occasion that that this happens.  As I rounded the corner from the kitchen, it suddenly dawned on me. The Southwest direction is the Relationship Life Area of the Bagua and home.  The hall where he sets the trash before taking it out clutters the Southwest sector of our apartment putting our relationship literally in the garbage.

Now when we fight, we check to see if the trash has been taken out first.  We’ve been great about keeping it clear since “the discovery” because who likes to fight with their spouse?  The lesson to be learned here is: you can be trashy without being in the trash.  See what garbage might be cluttering up your Relationship.  Take notice of the southwest area of your home.  Does it have excess clutter or garbage? Clean it up!  If you’re single and shopping, replace that trash with a picture of lovers.  Try pairs of things you love to symbolize being in good relations with someone else.  If you are partnered and find that you bicker a lot, try clearing out the section.  A good dusting and vacuuming will help lift the energy and give you a fresh start.  (Vacuuming is the quickest and easiest way to lift the energy of any room). Hang a picture of the two of you that you really like then slip into something risqué to surprise that special someone when they get home.  The perfect recipe for nightly whoopee!
