CHILDREN & CREATIVITY AREA IN FENG SHUI

Creativity is not just something that an artist or creative writer, musician or dancer, sculptor or woodworker has. You need creativity to solve problems and come up with alternative options and provide solutions. You need creativity to conceive new thoughts and ideas that turn into projects and opportunities. You need creativity to keep the imagination alive and balance the more logical way of thinking, analyzing and rationalizing life.

Make sure to clear your crystal with pure water, natural light, sounds, clearing spray, sage or cleansing smoke from a fragrant incense wood like Palo Santo before using them.
