If you feel the 21st century lifestyle creating overwhelm, stress, fear, sadness or paralysis, consider the ancient art & science of Feng Shui opening wide a door to shift, relieve suffering, grace, and peace of mind, and is as inspiring today as in ancient times.
Why do I say this?
Certainly, all of the above and much more has happened to me at one time or another. Life is filled with the inevitable ups and downs and these transient tests offer a chance to grow and flourish. However, finding answers along conventional western paths left me with more questions than answers.
The peace of mind I sought began in the early 1990's when alarmingly, two of my sisters and a close cousin fought and lost their tragic battles with cancer. Why was this happening to my family? What was a cancer cluster? Was the ground water toxic? I was full of fear, disbelief, and sadness and at that time beyond the immediate emotional concerns of family, the mind-body connection and how our environment contributes to well being were intriguing to me. Discovering that many world cultures, including Tibetan and Taoist Chinese for centuries had connected the mind and the body, and FengShui was considered the next best way to help sentient beings, albeit with much faster results than meditation, was a huge revelation I was grateful to learn.
Keeping it Real....
I opened the door to a body of ancient wisdom that had real answers, step by step approach, and the test of time because I wanted to literally live! I absorbed and adapted these teachings to transform my own mind and my own environment, with simple daily practices.
Older cultures offer different and perhaps more expansive world perspectives, eastern vs western art, diets without cancer, and also very rich histories of an intentional selection and citing of homes or businesses, for greater wellbeing and abundance.
While living in the West Village in NYC I found out about the country's only 3 - year professional FengShui masters program. To my delight a deep dive into Feng Shui in SOHO enabled my seeking serious credentials when I enrolled in Berkeley's Lin Yun's NYC-based BTB FengShui Masters program. In 1999, I graduated from that 3-year professional program and a few years later, I was invited to teach the RealEstate Feng Shui courses @BTB Masters Online by my BTB FengShui teachers. Next the International Feng Shui Guild (IFSG) awarded me the Red Ribbon Professional title and I also earned a Yoga Teacher RYT-200 certification from Yoga Alliance.
Fast forward to now and a grateful life of the manifested blessings co-created with a daily spiritual practice and living and breathing FengShui. My greatest honor is helping others to easily apply FengShui principles in their loves without sacrificing substance. Co-creating experiences of ala carte FengShui audits, space clearings & blessings, color consults, interior refreshes and contemplative practices allow my clients to experience a full range of FengShui benefits.
Whether my clients ask for help to be healthy, learn and practice individualized self-care and contemplative practices, solve life's repetitive problems, find life partners, have a child, gain peace of mind, sleep well, invite nature in, pick interior or exterior colors, refresh revenues, quickly sell houses, find a calling, or how be be content with gratitude practices, I am honored to share the immense value of peace of mind FengShui offers.
Even now, with the knowledge that I have the genetic disposition to develop certain cancers I remain cancer free, grounded in my non-harmful values and grateful to be sharing this transformative work with others.
My belief continues to be validated that our minds, hearts and environment shape so much of the richness and depth of our lives, and that even fleeting exposure to these ancient practices, allows fortunate and lucky sentient beings to benefit in magical ways.
WHY DOES FengShui MATTER?
We simply cannot expect the same consciousness that created our modern problems to solve them. Feng Shui's ancient lineage is timeless and offer a nonconventional, time-tested perspective, as wise today as it was thousands of years ago.
