I was volunteering with some young people recently and one morning one of the young girls was
wearing a gorgeous brightly patterned red T shirt with the wording "Do what you love", which
reminded me of a phrase I often use: "Do what you love, love what you do". Around the same time
I received a wonderful email update from one of my clients with some amazing news which really
made my day, so I decided to share my work as a Feng Shui Consultant with you that I absolutely
I first heard of Feng Shui in the early 1990's and started my official Diploma training in 1996 when
there was a lot of interest in the subject in newspapers, and on radio and television. I have been
working professionally in sharing this knowledge and inspiration since 1998, and my education and
experience continues to magnify with everyone I work with being my next teacher, as each person's
circumstance is always unique. My clients decide to invest in a Feng Shui Consultation for various
reasons which can be due to moving home, extending or renovating a home, experiencing life
changes with work, relationships or illness, generally feeling stuck or stagnant in life, or feeling
blocked and are unable to see a clear path ahead for their future.
I begin the process by having a telephone conversation to clarify the aim of a consultation, and
sometimes this is all that's needed to light the blue touch paper and begin the process of moving on
with life! When we have agreed a date for me to visit a home for a full Feng Shui consultation I ask
for a ground floor plan and a location map of the property, and also the dates of birth of each person
living in the home. All of this information helps with preparations prior to my personal visit.
I like to begin our meeting on the day around 9.30am so we are fresh and energised and start our
work as early as possible, as I am normally at a home for around 5 hours. It is helpful to understand
the theories of "Yin and Yang", the "Five Elements" and the "Bagua Energy Grid" and how they
work hand in hand together, so during the first part of our meeting I share an accelerated simple
Feng Shui lesson to enable you to understand my recommendations. During this time my clients
have often become experts within an hour, when they have recognised their past choices and
become ready to embrace change. As our home is a mirror of our life I begin to read everything I
see as whatever we choose to have around us is a reflection of who we are and how we're feeling,
so even if words are not spoken every image speaks volumes. I have seen the consequence of
material choice time and again when visiting homes in the reflection of what is happening in the
person's life before they say anything. Sometimes people have items from the past which no longer
reflect the opportunities they currently wish for, and they have surrounded themselves with
unsupportive visual memorabilia.
Often the rest of the day is spent suggesting and implementing changes and categorising pictures
and ornaments. This may result in placing items in different areas of the home, or realising the
effect they may be having on the subconscious mind and perhaps deciding they are no longer
supportive to current aims and it is time for them to move on. If there is a lot of storage in certain
areas we can realise this stuck and stagnant energy may be blocking certain aspirations in life.
If you specifically require business advice I highly recommend you begin with your home, as your
intention and the effects of this work magnify. A business consultation is different again and along
with general Feng Shui recommendations considers company logos and tag lines, seating positions and staff Ming Kua directions. Both consultations are easily combined for efficiency and
One of the most empowering parts of our meeting is recognising the power of your pen and
intention. As I become more familiar with you and your home we discuss your aims and intentions
based on the sectors of the Feng Shui Bagua energy grid, which in my experience is a huge part of a
consultation and gifts you the opportunity to engage in a very deep life review. As we become more
fluent in the use of Feng Shui principles and begin to listen to ourselves we can become wonderful
wizards of powerful manifestation and an inspirational idea becomes potential in super quick time.
This understanding enables us to become more discerning with our thoughts and more focused with
our actions in life, ensuring they are all positive and gifting us the potential to be blessed with a
creative life overflowing with inspiration, fulfilment and reward. When you sign and date this list
you cement your intention and commitment to making everything happen. This can have an
amazing effect and the more you realise this and tune into your empowerment, instant manifestation
can be yours! Every day is a new learning for me as I see this happen with everyone I meet, talk to
and work with in all walks of life, and witness what ever they say they create!
My visit is followed by a full easy to understand typed report and your list of aims and intentions
becomes the first page. The second page is your ground floor plan with the Feng Shui Bagua
energy grid drawn over it which confirms how the energy is working for you. Then there are some
pages of specific recommendations for your home, and finally my general notes for your interest
and information. This report enables you to review your Feng Shui choices and have a permanent
reference from our day together.
We can introduce good Feng Shui into our lives as a gateway to maximising our individual
unlimited potential. As you begin to understand your home and focus your intention, you invite
your life to become full of colour and glorious rich patterns, as the wings of the butterfly lift you in
your individual transformation and create new horizons in your life. As we live in homes based on
good Feng Shui principles, we understand and implement our learning, and can correct any
weaknesses, re-balance and move forward.
Everyone uses Feng Shui as this philosophy can be described as simply the way we chose to live
our lives and display the contents of our home and surroundings, as everything in life is a mirror
helping us in realisation to evolve and grow. The words "Feng Shui" are Chinese and the literal
translation is "Wind /Water". Although we understand these original philosophies as being Eastern
and thousands of years old, all our ancestors across the world understood the importance of working
in harmony with nature and their surroundings. We can also look at Egyptian, Celtic and South
American history to see how different cultures lived to create supportive and natural living spaces.
Feng Shui has more recently been introduced to the West as the art of harmonious placement and a
catalyst to manifest prosperity. It can be described as using the earth's natural energies which
surround us to bring balance and harmony into our lives and heal our homes. Good Feng Shui is
based on common sense, good design and maintenance for both your home and self. In my
experience it is an empowering tool of change and transformation and a catalyst to improve our
future. I really recommend we embrace this philosophy into our lives today in a way that works
and supports us.
These days have proven to be very empowering experiences where I share my passion and wealth
of knowledge and experience about the subject and help you translate your intention into action.
They act as a catalyst to help you to focus on the future of your dreams and accelerate the
conclusion of any outstanding issues, and I always feel greatly privileged to be invited to work with
anyone, and continue to remain in a state of wonderment as I witness the transformations,
empowerment, and the outcome of the experience. I am very lucky as most of my clients come to
me through word of mouth recommendation, or are people I have previously worked with who have
found our past work together very beneficial, especially when moving to a new home. Some of my
clients also like to regularly have a review as their lives move at a particularly fast pace. I honour
and thank you all as you continue to teach me as I learn and grow as an eternal student at
University of Life".
