Cleaning The Rebel and the Cleaning Lady
An Essential Feng Shui story from alumna Ainslie Kincross

I’m helping a 74 year old friend clean up her 2nd home – a condo in town that she visits for 2-3 days a month from her more remote northern CA home.  Just before I came here, we had a conversation about how much she hates cleaning – “It’s never been my thing” (and in general, dirt and clutter build up in her environment until she has to have someone take care of it).

I inquired a bit more, and learned that she and her 2 sisters had to “clean up for the cleaning lady” when they were growing up.  They lived in a very nice home, and their mother had a “cleaning lady,” but their task was to clean up for her!  As little girls, they hated the task, and later as teenagers thought it was a “big joke.”  She does not have much to say about her mother.
So when I walked into her condo, this is what I saw in the Love and Relationships Gua!  It’s a copy of a Dutch painting of a mother teaching her 3 daughters how to dust the pottery!   (And the mirror on the adjacent wall doubles the effect!)
In a phone call to update her on the work I’m doing, I mentioned this “coincidence”  just to see if anything resonated – but the symbolism escaped her.
My friend describes herself as “a rebel,” and I’ve noticed she’s pretty resistant to many things (aren’t we all to some degree?)  This made me think about karma, and awareness, and how striving for greater awareness, no matter what our age, can bring some things to light and allow us to integrate them, and keep us from “carrying some things to the grave” and into the next life.
