Our living spaces can become nurturing homes for us when we make sure that our surroundings accurately reflect who we are as individuals and who we aspire to become. No matter how positive and creative you may be in your inner world, if your home or work surroundings are contradictory or present energetic barriers, you are likely to find it difficult to manifest all that you desire. By paying attention to the flow of energy around you, you can align your inner intentions with your outer realities to make your life a conscious act of creation.
In Feng Shui the words feng and shui mean wind and water. Walk through your home and imagine the way these elements would flow through your space. You can evaluate whether or not your home is a balanced ecosystem that would allow a plant to flourish. A straight path between doorways would make nourishing elements rush right through, while a pleasantly meandering stream would instead create a flow that nurtures life. Look for signs of debris that might obstruct the flow of such a river. Clutter acts like hurdles placed in your path, blocking you from creating what you want in your life. Once the obstacles are recognized, however, they can be removed to let energy flow freely throughout your home and your life so that you can thrive.
Your home can be thought of as a symbolic metaphor for your life. Using the Feng Shui Bagua you can see if a neglected space may correspond to a lack of growth in your career or personal relationships. By shifting your perception, you shift the way you direct your energy and attention, which can enable you to make the changes you need to actively create the life of your dreams. If you need some assistance, please contact me. I would love to help you create a living space which would bring you harmony and allow you to achieve your goals.

Feng Shui is all about balance and positive energy. The universe is in a constant state of Yin and Yang. What we put out there (yang) comes back to us (yin) in a non judgmental and perfectly balanced way. When we make Feng Shui enhancements in our home, and expect results, we must remember that these adjustments are only 1/3 of the equation. Our destiny and our actions make up the other 2/3 of the formula. We may have little control over our destiny but our actions are completely within our reach. Feng Shui master professor Lin Yun stated that the key to prosperity is kindness. To change your situation begins by doing a good deed each day. This will change the course of energy. A simple act of kindness can make an impact. When one does something good, solely for the benefit of another, the reality is that they both benefit.

Join me in some Feng Shui fun! Here are two easy ways to join me in learning the powerful art of Feng Shui.
The first is through a relaxed, instructive and fun home consult. An initial home consult takes about two hours. At this time you receive a packet with an introduction to Feng Shui, the principles, focus and Bagua map. We discuss your needs and then map out your house using the Bagua, recommending enhancements for each area. For booking the consultation, you receive a complimentary copy of “The Western Guide to Feng Shui” by Terah Collins, and a written report. I will then be available to you via phone and email.
The second fun way to learn about Feng Shui is by taking my series of classes. The next series on Essential Feng Shui for beginners begins on June 2 through Acalanes Adult Education in Walnut Creek. To Register contact Acalanes Adult Ed. (925) 280-3981 www.acalanes.k12.ca.us/adulted
