Your Home--Celebrate Your Life

a Feng Shui consultant, I am challenged to understand what makes
a good Practitioner. Even though it requires many years of study
through different schools to learn the art and science of feng
shui, a high level of common sense and compassion with the client
is a must. The client needs to have a consultant that is approachable.
This promotes a level of trust. The consultation with the client
and the property has a strong connection. Even though a consultant
may have a lot of knowledge, it is how they translate that knowledge
for the client that defines them.
spring while watching my daughter in the pool taking her swimming
lessons, I came upon a theory. I believe we are attracted to palaces
(homes) that help us to live our "life plan". This is
the karmic responsibility that we must deal with. The home reflects
issues. Through the analysis of wandering star, twenty four mountains,
compass, land form, bagua, and lou pan work, the occupants of
the home are shaped by the "heart" of the home. Based
upon the year and cosmic time the home was built, there is a core
of energy that creates an "aura." This supports Winston
Churchill's and Valmi Elkin's theory that "the house shapes
us and we shape the house." Our home is our castle. It is
a sacred place. Denise Linn in her book "Feng Shui for the
Soul" talks about the home as a manifestation for the soul.
theory has proven itself many times over due to the advanced level
work on the home. Why are we attracted to palaces that reflect
issues. An issue is a problem that seems to constantly plague
the occupants of the home. The issue may be illness or money or
relationships. The home will either creates an issue, sustain
a current life issue or heal the issue. Let me give you an example.
I worked with a client who requested to have a feng shui consultation
to deal with relationships. Through the floor plan, it reflected
this in the number analysis. An element was placed in the area
to weaken the issue and to promote relationship. Over time, the
client felt more relaxed about her view of relationships and her
friends. She decided to sell her home. She consulted me to find
a new home for her based upon her birth energy. I encouraged her
to find a home on her own that she liked. She found one and to
my astonishment, the number analysis matched the previous home.
Even though she thought the home faced a different direction and
was built in a different cosmic period, this home reflected relationship
issues similar to the last home. I was astonished. Why did she
choose this palace that seemed to carry on the issue of relationships?
Does she still need to work on the issue before the universe agrees
that she can move on? I believe that we attract fortunate palaces
once the universe agrees that we are able to handle this. This
is authentic work; helping the client recognize the issue, deal
with it, and then honoring the fortunate blessings.
that if feng shui is viewed as a "quick fix" or power
feng shui, we can easily convince the client that energy does
exist even though the affect will not last. To illustrate a case
in point, I worked with a client who needed employment immediately.
Through placement, this worked. The client was pleased. Within
a short time, however, the client's husband had an accident which
required him to loose his employment. Now, we are working on his
health. Was this incident a part of his life plan? Through conferencing
with the client, issues are surfacing that were not there before.
Perhaps this is the way to work through an issue that needs to
be cleared before the man of the home receives employment. I believe
it is necessary for clients to understand what the energy in the
home is saying and how it shapes their life. I also believe that
once the issue is acknowledged, it is easier to deal with. If
things are placed in the home to weaken or to strengthen stars,
the home becomes a haven for fortunate blessings. If the client
chooses a palace that reflects the issue, and the client is not
aware that it needs to be dealt with, then the client will shape
the home through placement to accelerate the issue. This supports
the theory that we can use our homes to heal.
it is the responsibility of the consultant to help the client
understand what the energy of the home is saying. Many clients
are relieved to know that the home is not turned upside down to
channel chi yet are grateful to know what can be done to shape
the palace for healing.
is the next step? The use of the bagua (pa kua) and the placement
of things around the rooms to harmonize incoming chi is not enough.
We have a life time responsibility and commitment to our clients.
This means that I as a consultant needs to help the client recognize
that the home can be a palace for celebration. Placement is the
catalyst for change. Intent with focus helps with connection.
Until we become connected with our homes, we will not recognize
the "fortunate blessings" we receive on a daily basis.
We need to honor our homes as a place to shape energy for prosperity
and health. What is your home telling you?
