What is Feng Shui?
The purpose of Feng Shui is to improve the quality of all areas of life.
When your personal energy or (chi) is aligned with the energies of your environment, you are more likely to attract more success and prosperity into your life. You may also find that your relationships are happier, and your family life is calmer. You may notice that your stress level is reduced, and your health improves.
Just as fresh air and clean water nourish your body, healthy energy nourishes your home and your life. When the flow of energy is blocked or weakened, finances, health, creativity, relationships and career opportunities can suffer. You may feel stuck, tired, depressed, un-motivated and have difficulty with moving forward in life.
Feng Shui translated means Wind and Water, and like wind and water, you and your environment are two forces of nature. Feng Shui is concerned with the flow and circulation of vital energy. Energy is the invisible force that animates all life, and just like an acupuncturist adjusts the flow of energy in the body with needles and herbs, a Feng Shui expert can use a variety of colors, interior design, furniture placement, and adjustments called “cures” to redirect and nourish the flow of energy in homes and businesses—often with startling results.
So, the philosophy of Feng Shui is really quite simple. If you are able to harmonize your personal energy with the energy of your immediate environment, you will be in tune with the natural forces of nature, and you will experience the results in a healthier, happier and more prosperous life. And since you spend more than 80% of your time indoors, where you live and work is extremely important in dictating the quality of your life.
Is Feng Shui a religion?
NO! If you are uncomfortable with the idea of Feng Shui for fear it may be in conflict with your religion, please be assured that this beautiful process is not a religion, nor is it magic, mysticism, or a fad. Based on quantum physics, we now have this ancient practice available to us, regardless of religion, race, or cultural background, to assist us in living life to the fullest!

What is your approach to Feng Shui?
There are different schools of Feng Shui and sometimes you can become dizzy with what seems like conflicting information. All methods of Feng Shui are valuable, but some teachings are more powerful and user friendly than others.
You might hear such names as The Traditional School of Feng Shui, The Compass School, Form School, Pyramid School, Flying Star School, The Five Element Theory and The Black Hat School of Feng Shui. I use the teachings of The Black Hat School because I believe them to be of exceptional value and easy to implement.
The Black Hat School of Feng Shui was brought to this country in 1986 and taught by Grand Master Professor Thomas Lin Yun of Berkeley, California. This school is often referred to as Western Feng Shui, and seems to be the most popular here in the United States.
The teachings of The Black Hat School use your front door, no matter where it is, as a pivotal point of reference. By using an energy graph called a Ba Gua, your space is diagnosed according to where different life values are located, depending on where the front door dictates. This method of Feng Shui is not only effective, but again, very user friendly.
By using very simple and inexpensive cures or “remedies” great changes can be made to nourish the flow of positive energy without asking the client to re-arrange her/his home to any great degree.
The Black Hat School of Feng Shui is embedded in the enduring Chinese traditions and retains the essence of traditional Feng Shui and the basic principles of geomancy.
