What is Feng Shui?
When you heal your environment, you heal your life.
Although new to our culture, Feng Shui is an ancient and time-tested practice. It literally means “Wind Water,” acknowledging the flow of energies that make up our world.
The practice of Feng Shui takes on many forms and expressions. At the root of all practices lies the understanding that your environment is composed of integrated living systems, and that everything in your environment affects you whether you can see it or not.
My practice of Holistic Feng Shui brings health and well being to your life by harmonizing the spaces where you live and work. It also addresses the “inner spaces” of your physical body and personal energy system.
There is never just one good time to schedule a consultation, however sometimes the inspiration will start with a pressing challenge, such as an area of your life that is blocked, or a persistent problem with your home. Sometimes the inspiration will come from a positive change, such as a new home, a new relationship, or a new career expansion. If you’re not sure if Feng Shui is the proper approach, you are always welcome to schedule a complementary phone session to explore your situation.
This is an excellent question. Since I have the ability to intuitively read the energy systems that support you, if you’re not sure where to start, I can help you make this decision. When you schedule a complementary phone session, I’ll ask you to explain a bit about what’s going on in your life. By energetically “reading” the circumstances I will be able to diagnose where to begin – whether with Feng Shui or personal work.
People often postpone a consultation because they think they need to “get their house ready.” In fact, I ask my clients NOT to clean before I come, so I can experience the patterns of your daily life in your home. And if you are challenged with unfinished projects or clutter, space clearing and Feng Shui will help you move through those projects more quickly and easily.
This is a common question. Some people even hesitate to schedule a consultation for fear that they will get “bad news.” That I will recommend expensive solutions or even moving to a different home. This isn’t the case at all, and in fact the opposite is true. Since everything is based on energy, there are very few absolute rules, and even fewer problems that can’t be solved. Where there are challenges, there is always a creative solution. My approach is to heal imbalance and bring harmony to your home. My recommendations will be practical, economical, and manageable. Above all else, a consultation will bring clarity and understanding to your circumstances and help you find a solution that works.
Because of the variety of approaches to Feng Shui, it can be definitely be confusing or overwhelming to apply the ideas from books to your own home or workplace. A consultation can be a great introduction to the world of Feng Shui, and help you learn how to apply these universal principles to your unique environment. You will also receive recommendations for helpful books and resources so you can continue to learn.
Improving the quality of sleep is one of the first priorities of every consultation. One of the common reasons for insomnia are energy disturbances in your home or within the earth under your bedroom. I have the ability to diagnose and harmonize these patterns so that you are able to rest and rejuvenate when you go to bed at night.
Your ideal direction for sleep is based on two principles. The most important is based on the form of the room, called “command position.” Then, if possible, we will also incorporate your “Good Directions,” called the Ming Gua. This is a special astrology calculation based on the directions that energy traveled the year you were born. your year of birth. One of the important parts of a consultation is learning about your good directions and how to take advantage of them. This information is very useful for all aspects of daily life, including the direction your bed faces, the orientation of your desk and workspace, and the direction you face for meditation or any form of focused activity.
