Marie Kondo “Tidying Up” is NOT Feng Shui

Share this Awesome Story!

Until yesterday, I had never heard of Marie Kondo.  I was talking with certified feng shui consultant and feng shui master, Sybilla Lenz who brought Marie Kondo’s unusual approach to feng shui in her Netflix series, “Tidying Up” to my attention.   And, then synchronicity played her hand and I saw Mathew Walther’s blog post:  Marie Kondo and the Rise of Clutter Shaming.

While I may take a few minutes to explore Marie Kondo’s Netflix series, I will do so with a healthy dose of skepticism. I believe viewers should also view the show as entertainment.  And, please do not toss out your grandmother’s antique vase because you no longer “feel gratitude” from it today.  You may need to speak with a feng shui expert about the proper placement of your grandmother’s vase to feel gratitude.  Holding an inanimate object a few seconds to see if it’s time to toss out, is not feng shui.

The art of Feng Shui is not about clutter shaming.  Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese philosophy and it’s extremely important to be precise with its information and implementation.

As the Founder and President of AYRIAL, an international association of professional life coaches and lifestyle consultants, including the country’s top certified feng shui masters, I invite you to connect with certified feng shui consultant, Sybilla Lenz.  Sybilla has her own consulting company, Sybilla Lenz Consulting. She and her professional team of feng shui experts regularly consult with contractors, architects, individuals, professionals to help them clear space also known to attract; new business, prosperity, health and wellness, and more.

AYRIAL will be producing an audio series with Sybilla Lenz, who will discuss the proper feng shui approach to Marie Kondo’s Netflix “Tidying Up” episodes including:

  • The Downsizers
  • The Empty Nesters
  • Sparking Joy After

This will be an exciting new series with something for everyone!  AYRIAL is expected to roll out the first episode late February!  No doubt Sybilla Lenz’s professional approach to “tidying up” with feng shui will be thoughtful and detailed.  In the meantime, if you’re like me, and a newbie to the world of feng shui,  you’ll find useful feng shui tips in AYRIAL’s Feng Shui Tips, a custom Alexa Skill.  Using your Amazon Echo Device, simply say, “Alexa, open feng shui” or you can easily click to enable on the Amazon page.

Feng shui is an ancient practice developed over 3,000 years ago in China. Feng shui is not religion or superstition; it is a science because its formulas and fundamentals are based on empirical research and it is an art because experience and judgment are critical in the analysis.  Feng Shui focuses on the study of Qi (pronounced “chi”, which is vital life energy) and how it can be harnessed to create harmonious living; better health, successful career or business, and fulfilling relationships for the people inhabiting the space.  Follow AYRIAL
