Yes, You Can Take It With You
Make Your Own Traveling Feng Shui Supply Kit
Knowing he had to go back the following week, I prepared him a travelling feng shui supply kit. I sent him with a blue scarf to lay across the table or chest in his room (also to cover poison arrows), a couple of stones, a candle in a glass votive with a box of matches, a tiny metal statue, a chunk of wood from a special tree, and a small octagonal mirror. He set these out when he got into his room, lighting the candle as he came back each night. The next trip was much easier on him. He returned home charged by his journey instead of drained, and he was ready to return to his routine the next day.
