The easiest way for me to explain Feng Shui to you is to explain how it has changed my own life in so many ways—all for the better.
Feng Shui has given me my joy back and refreshed my life. My Energy levels are through the roof and I feel ALIVE and inspired...EVERYDAY!
Every day I find that new opportunities are showing up in my life. My relationships have deepened. My career has taken off. My finances are flowing.
My life has quieted and exploded all at the same time, and I am eternally grateful.
As a result of my own experiences, I feel it is truly my life’s purpose to help people just like you re-find their joy, open themselves up to finding their true path in life and gain control over the chaos.
Take a look around you. What do you see? Whether you realize it or not, your living environment is profoundly affecting you and every aspect of your life.
For example, are you experiencing health issues, financial instability or a troubled relationship? How about a lack of respect from others or a lack of support?
When was the last time you had an inspired thought… and then had the courage to carry it through? Feng Shui is a game changer. It gives you the energy, the inspiration and the courage to create and manifest the change you crave.
When you start to view your surroundings with your newfound “Feng Shui eyes,” you will see that you can remove the blocks that have been holding you back. Feng Shui makes life flow more easily. When you come up against one of the nasty little roadblocks that life throws at you...they will happen! You will have the tools to remove the obstacle and keep moving forward.
FENG SHUI: Defined
So, what the heck is FENG SHUI? That’s the big question, right?
The words Feng Shui (pronounced FUNG SH-WAY) when translated from the Chinese language, mean Wind and Water. The subtle meaning is related to “seen” and “unseen” energy in nature, how it flows through everything and everyone.
Wind isn’t something you can see, obviously, but you still know it’s there; you can feel it. Its force can be so great that it bends trees and whips your hair.
Water is very similar to energy in the way it behaves. Picture a free-flowing stream or brook. When water is running free, it is clean and healthy—it even sparkles. It provides nourishment to everything in it and around it. If, however, the water becomes blocked or dammed, it will become stagnant and unhealthy, potentially causing illness or disease.
It is a scientific fact that everything is made up of energy. You, me, the trees, the earth, that old chair Aunt Agnus gave you that you can't seem to get rid of...and yes, even your clutter.
You may be able to “see” energy when it’s in the form of a physical thing, but what you may not realize is that there is energy flowing all around us and through us all the time. You can’t see it, but I’m willing to bet you’ve felt it. Think about the old expression “You could cut the tension with a knife.” It’s not just simply a metaphor; there is living energy coming off of us. It’s not always good energy, but, nonetheless, it’s energy! And we, as living beings, are generating it. Wind, water, plants, trees, fire, and earth are all generating it. It’s coming from everywhere… it is everywhere and it’s what makes this whole show work...or not work.
When you incorporate the methods of Feng Shui in your home, you ensure that this energy is affecting you and your life positively. Jamie Barrett, author of Feng Shui Your Life, describes this very eloquently:
In the same way that blood and oxygen must flow freely and purposefully in your body, so must energy and life force circulate throughout your daily environments. The room and spaces you inhabit influence your well-being and your opportunities in life. Feng Shui provides practical methods to strengthen the positive energy in your surrounding and to create beauty. It gives you techniques to transform your home into a sanctuary: a place where you feel happy, healthy and motivated, where your aspirations become reality. Your daily stress can be greatly reduced when you minimize the chaos of the outside world by creating your own safe haven. When your surroundings nourish you, your energy increases and you feel more empowered to achieve your goals. By infusing your environment with vibrant energy and symbols of beauty, love, success, and bounty, your space becomes a living, breathing manifestation of the life you want to live: a blueprint for your destiny.
Setting the Foundation for Your Feng Shui Journey
I have made a DISCOVERY! My biggest Ah-HA moment yet and I believe it's going to change your life just as much as it's changing mine.
I love Feng Shui.
I love the magic it brings into my life and I love helping people discover this magic in their own lives. I believe everyone can benefit from this ancient healing art so I've done my best to put my own approachable spin on it and make it feel more relatable for people just like you. I’m so truly grateful that you are here on this journey with me.
We are going to take some time to dive in and get clear about what’s working in your life and what’s NOT working in your life. This will help you define what areas need your attention most in the coming weeks. If you are like the rest of us you struggle with self-limiting beliefs. You see, what I've discovered is that most of us are subconsciously setting up our spaces, homes, and offices to support our negative patterns and our self-limiting beliefs. Why??? You may ask.
The most honest answer is: Because it feels SAFE... it's what you know...it's what you've been TOLD and it's what you BELIEVE to be true. OK, so what is a self-limiting belief?
It's an idea or a repeating story that has been imbedded deep down in your personal belief system that keeps you locked into self-defeating and self-destructive behaviors and patterns. The key to your success, in every aspect of your life, is to understand these untruths and finding the tools to release them and keep them released.
CUE ==> Feng Shui!
I'll give you a very real example of what I'm talking about; I have one particular client whose story comes to mind...A few years back I was invited to her home to for a Feng Shui consultation. During the consultation, we discovered that her "LOVE" area was completely MISSING from her apartment. The Ah-HA moment that washed over her was undeniable. She realized at that moment that the last 3 apartments she had picked to live in were all missing the LOVE area. She was able to make the connection that on some level she didn't feel worthy of love and she was locking herself into that self-limiting belief by creating a living environment that supported this pattern.
Living in the "DEN of LIMITS."
Have you ever wondered why every time you ATTEMPT to step out of your comfort zone in the hopes of propelling yourself forward or you initiate some much-needed self-care by getting your butt to yoga class or to a massage appointment...all that GOOD ENERGY and intention for change seems to hold for a bit...and then slowly, slowly you slip back into the norm of "before"?
It's because you're living in a Den of LIMITS and all that momentum you've just worked so hard for can't compete. Those self-limiting beliefs are deeply ingrained and you are literally SURROUNDING yourself in your living environment with these negative beliefs.
When you invite the practice of Feng Shui into your life you are opening yourself up to positive change. I often hear from clients that they start to see shifts immediately, even before we start the real work. Why, because, you're READY and you are making a conscious agreement to accept the work. When that happens...whoa, watch out!
The universe says, "YES!! Let's do THIS. I'm here to support you, I've always been here to support you...I was just waiting for you to believe what I already know...You are MAGIC!"
The practice of Feng Shui acts as a guide. Its greatest gift to you is clarity and positive change. Your home will quickly become a tangible tool to aid you in manifesting your goals and dreams.
You will learn how to arrange your space in a way that supports and nurtures your goals, your dreams, and your SELF-EMPOWERING beliefs. You will be able to physically see where you are subconsciously setting up self-sabotaging roadblocks and where your life is free-flowing and fancy-free.
The clarity that Feng Shui helps you develop will allow you to dive deeper and discover where your particular blocks have taken root. Recognizing the roots of these blocks is your pathway to freedom. Once you make the connection you can respond with a shift to your physical environment. This will support your healing even if your inner blocks are struggling with all their might to hold on. The external shift supports the internal shift to ensure the shift actually takes place!
Your struggle to move forward will end. Your "stuck-ness" will be no more. You will be fully engaged in the now and back on your path to re-discovering you.
I can't wait for your Ah-HA moments to start flowing!
Remember, life isn't about ONE big Ah-HA! moment and then you’re done...It's about the thousands of little ones that lead you to the bigger ones and celebrating each breakthrough along the way with full acceptance.
Once you start to open your Feng Shui eyes, you'll feel it immediately…from now on there is nothing that can hold you back your life is YOURS once more!
Let's get you back on your path...on your path back to YOU.
On your path to feeling ALIVE and INSPIRED again!!
