I have recently seen Feng Shui become a buzzword in the media and on multiple social sites. I have had to hold my breath when I see some of this and remind myself that the purpose of what I do is to provide facts to those who want to learn the true knowledge of an ancient practice—a discipline that is powerful and holds a true purpose. A majority of people write it off as superstition or newbies and skeptics trying to condense an Eastern practice into a Western way of living.
I should not get upset and it shouldn't bother me that the hype around Feng Shui has become amplified and one can get caught up in a feeding frenzy of misinformation. It shouldn't bother me, but it does.
It's no wonder why people are so confused about Feng Shui and think that turning in my real estate license for a career in “hidden energy” would be ludicrous. I get it. I do.
(Good thing I don't care and those people are not one of my family members or friends. LOL) #followyourpassion
It is true that in many ways, Eastern and Western living are worlds apart. I have written about this before because it is interesting to me how we have adapted over time with Eastern ways making their way to the Western world. It was in the 1960s that Buddhism and meditation were first introduced to the West, and in 1970, it was martial arts, including karate, tai chi, and kung Fu. In the 1980s, it was acupuncture and yoga.
Then—boom! In 1990, Feng Shui was here in the US. As I’ve explained, in some circles, and in the wrong hands, much of the information has been broken down, misinterpreted, and misrepresented. Because of this, it's very important for me to reintroduce it to you, because as you can see, it is so much more than a passing fad.
Feng Shui is a potent practice, and it may surprise you to learn that it is sometimes hidden by the elite and wealthy. There are high-profile companies and celebrities that use Feng Shui to ensure their wealth but choose not to disclose that publicly for a number of reasons.
However, there are many notable companies and celebrities who do disclose, including Coca-Cola, The Wall Street Journal, Steven Spielberg, Merrill Lynch, Hilton MGM Grand Hotel, McDonalds, Oprah Winfrey, Wells Fargo, Tommy Hilfiger, Chase Manhattan Bank, George Clooney, and DreamWorks Animation—just to name a few.
To conclude my blog for the evening, Feng Shui is the ancient art and science that evaluates the quality of energy in a building or home. It's about the balance and flow of energy and making it as positive as possible, aligning your home for the highest good of you, your life, your business, your relationships, your opportunities, and your home itself.
The purpose of what I do as a Feng Shui practitioner is to determine if your home supports you in wealth, health, and your relationships. It has taken time to master these principles and calculations, and it’s why I love surprising people with my knowledge, enhancing their lives, and helping them to appreciate the science behind what I do.
Feng Shui is art, science, math, logic, and then proven results. I help balance the energy in a space by using a complex set of calculations, your floor plans, your home's exact compass direction, date of construction, and then using the 5 elements of nature and the Bagua Map as my compass. Yeah, I am a badass and like to say I have magic.
While I am certainly not able to alter the design of a home—unless we’re starting from the ground up—I am able to gather all this information and create a concise report with the fastest results for a home, space, or business. I am able to determine the remedies needed for each area of your home that will help balance each area of your life and bring harmony to you and each occupant of your home. Pretty amazing.
