Over the period of Mercury Retrograde (October 21st to November 10th) there was a huge push to get areas of our lives cleaned up. This meant physical cleaning as well as emotional. One Sunday morning what started with a quick rearrange & dust turned into an overhaul of my healing room. I hadn’t planned what was about to happen but the universe sure did.
Take a look at the photos below. Once I started moving things around and pulling open drawers I just couldn’t stop. I’m very good at hiding things away, out of sight out of mind. My drawers were full of stuff I was holding onto just in case. As you can see once I tipped them out the task ahead was epic. So much crap! One drawer was full of bits of cut off ribbon & craft materials. Seriously will I ever us a ten centimetre scrap of ribbon?
The room isn’t very big especially with my table up. When I have a session I need to reposition my table & my desk chair gets wheeled out to make space. I felt like this was a lot of effort especially as I’m conducting sessions more regularly. All that rearranging adds to my pre-session preparation. I decided I needed to loose some furniture so the table can stay put in one place.
After clearing out my drawers I stream lined the contents so I could totally get rid of one small set of drawers. The printer that sat on top was moved below the desk. A much better spot for it & it made better use of the desk that is designed to have a printer the lower shelf.
Then the fun started. The other two pieces of furniture went round and round in circles. I could not decide what felt right. I loved the space I created in the middle of the room by taking the big drawers away from the sidewall. It meant my table could stay in the one spot & I could get round it better. I just couldn’t decide where the drawers or shelves should go.
Finally I was too tried to drag the drawers around anymore & they stayed put by the door. The small shelves are in a better spot now as these house my metaphysical bits & pieces I use in sessions. I need these at easy reach. Stepping back & viewing the new room layout it feels so much better. All the furniture is away in one corner/wall, leaving a huge open space in the centre for my table. The energy really can flow round now with out any furniture blocking it’s path. My desk chair does not need to be moved out now. Actually it’s better it stays in so I have somewhere to sit whilst I talk to clients, makes it all the more friendly.
I realise now my room was craving this make over, it needed a switch up, and it was time for it to evolve. It’s amazing what happened next. The next day the phone & email went nuts with new clients enquiries. Business had gone a touch quiet. It happens, I don’t stress if it does. I feel the reason why was because the space I was working from had gone a bit stale. By cleaning it up & changing it around it’s vibrational frequency changed sending out messages to my clients that it was ready to receive them.
The same thing happened when I first set up the room. Once I set the intention that space was dedicated to healing & I left the table up all the time I had an influx of clients.
What I have learned from this is the space I work out of is a high vibrational entity just like me. This space is as much part of the healing session as I am. It will evolve with me as I grow & just like myself it will needs will change. I clear & cleanse the space energetically every day but now I realise as well as a physical clean it will need a rearrange from time to time. What worked with the layout before was fine for when I first started out. Now I need more space to get around & a chair to sit in as the after session coaching is getting longer.
Have you ever noticed how the energy of a room changes & shifts when you move around the furniture? Please share your experience in the comments below.

There is only four days of Mercury Retrograde to go now. I’ve really enjoyed it this time round. Probably because I’m in a good place to really notice the fluctuations of the energy. I’m sticking to my intention & letting any challenging situations simply wash through me. It’s working for sure as I’m feeling very breezy about it all.
I’ve mentioned before retro is the best time to implement changes. These changes I feel can be a lot out of our control, we may not get the exact result we indended. If you struggle with being a control freak I bet you’ll be glad when this is all over. I’ve let go of my reins where in the past I’d be gripping on for dear life.
How many people have had technical issues with electrical equipment? I sure have. Blog posts not sharing & email alerts not appearing. My phone would not hold a charge & for a few days wouldn’t even recharge. My design software was been painfully slow. With every single click the Mac ‘wheel of doom’ showed up. It was taking hours to get things done with the constant re booting to freshen things up. Again I’ve just rolled with it or used it as a good excuse to go tech free for a few hours.
One thing I paid attention too this time is what commenters of the retrograde always write about. Deals entered into at this time are subject to change. This can be good & bad depending on what you are trying to do. For me I am trying to sell my car. Not desperately, I’m not in any rush actually but I did feel two weeks ago it would be good for it to be gone by now.
How I came to be selling it in the first place was out of the blue & a bit random. It was a result of a manifestation I made four years ago coming to light unexpectedly. Anyway, I found a buyer but not after reducing the price to lower than I wished. I felt it was a deal done & then they pulled out. I let it go, as I said I’m not desperate.
Within a few hours of buyer one pulling out another buyer came forward who was super keen. Cool I thought, I’m loving the retrograde chopping & changing things it’s quiet fun. Again I lowered the price to accommodate the buyer. I changed my plans for the day to fit in with them viewing the car. Then they pulled out. I was a touch disappointed as I’d changed my day but I knew there was a reason for this happening.
I touched base with how I truly felt. I am in no rush to sell. From a paper work point of view it will make my life easier if I have the old car till my new car’s paperwork comes through. I have private plates & it makes the whole process easier if I can do a straight plate switch. If you’ve ever been to a WA licensing office you will get where I’m coming from, one trip is much better than two.
The main reason I feel these sudden changes are occurring is that I was selling myself short money wise. I kept lowering the price to fit in with the buyers. Okay yes it’s the norm to set the price & be prepared for some haggling. I had also disregarded my ‘lowest price’ bracket. The last offer I accepted was $1800 below than the replacement value the car is insured for. I can see why the universe is throwing me curve balls. I just need to sit tight & the right buyer with the right amount of money will present itself when they’re ready. The car is clean & safely stored away in a garage so it’s not in anyone’s way.
A few years back these sorts of broken deals or sudden changes would have freaked me out. Before I could not cope with things like that as I was constantly trying to be in control. Tight shoulders, headaches & anxiety would have been ripe. Now I’ve learned it’s easier to just surrender. Roll with it. There’s no use wasting precious energy on things that I have no power over.
As the Beatles put it:
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah, la la how the life goes on.
Have you had any plans suddenly change or unexplainable happenings over the past three weeks? Please share in the comments below.
