The effect of Feng Shui allows you to harmonize and create a balance in your surroundings and in turn, helps you support and empower your personal life.

What is CH'I?

Ch'i is  an invisible life force or energy and it is always around us. Allowing ch'i to stagnate or become clogged will manifest itself somewhere in your life. You want to capture good ch'i and enable it to meander throughout your house, your landscape, your office, your business ... wherever you are... to nurture you and enable you to deal with life issues more easily.

The objective of feng shui is to capture good ch'i and to keep it alive and fresh. How many times have you walked into a room or a house and felt completely comfortable and at ease? Environments like this have excellent ch'i. Have you ever walked into a room after an argument and felt heaviness in the air? Ch'i is absorbed into everything in our environment and you can feel the negativity when it is there.

Can I have other family members or friends present during the consultation?

Yes, you can. However, sometimes we do discuss and work on personal issues that you may not wish to share with others. If you're comfortable with sharing that type of information with them, then it is ok to have them present.

Do I need to clean my home before an on-site consultation?
This is a common question and the answer is no. We would like to see how you work with and in your space on a daily basis. If you clean your home and tuck everything away only to have them return in the following days, then it won't be a true representation of how you use and interact with your space.
Will I have to place Chinese items in my home, office or business?

No. Classical Feng Shui is based in physics not Folk Lore. There is no need to emulate any culture to achieve results.

Why is it important to clear up clutter?

Clutter in Feng Shui represents stagnant or negative energy.  It blocks the smooth flow of Chi throughout your home, office or business, slows it down or in some cases, stagnates.  A cluttered home, office or desk will energetically weigh you down, cause you to have difficulty making decisions, stop new opportunities from coming into your life, and cause you to live in the past. Clear out that clutter!

There is not only the physical aspect of the clutter, but also a mental aspect. Clearing out clutter is also good for your mind. You know how good you feel when you clean out your closet or reorganize your desk? Getting rid of junk will give both you and the space you cleared revitalized energy.
