What Is Feng Shui?

100_6666 - CopyFeng shui is an ancient Chinese method of creating living and working spaces uniquely suited to the individual. Feng shui practitioners study how the built environment affects people, and suggest ways to create spaces that support us to meet the challenges in our lives and to welcome the opportunities. A feng shui environment affirms who we are and what we want from our lives.

Chi’ or vital energy links us to our environment. Feng shui practitioners observe ch’i as it moves in and around everyone and everything. When chi’ flows smoothly in our surroundings, it flows smoothly inside our bodies. Then we feel safe, grounded and flexible to handle our life situations.

When our physical space is blocked, we may feel unable to reach our life purpose. Feng shui adjustments help to remove the blocks creating a smooth flow throughout our living and work spaces, restoring balance to the place and to the person.


Benefits of Feng Shui

We are energetically connected to our environment. Therefore it is possible to change our environment and experience change within ourselves.

Did you know that a large part of successful people’s good fortune is due to their personal and working environments being a certain way? Celebrities such as Donald Trump, Bill Gates, George Clooney, Paula Abdul, and Louise Hay all consult with feng shui experts.

In ancient China feng shui was only available to nobility and people in high positions. Today feng shui is available to anyone who wants to improve their space to become more successful.

“After consulting with Mary, we removed the damaged electronics from our house. In their place we added a water fountain as Mary suggested. Six days later Pete received a new job offer. Now we can remain in our beautiful home and not experience a relocation, which would have been inevitable.”
– M.S. Cary, NC

“I had just purchased a foreclosed property as my first home. I asked Mary to evaluate the house before I moved in. Mary discovered a number of areas that could have caused financial problems. She provided a practical list of solutions to secure and strengthen my financial future.”
– Z.B. Worcester, MA

“I loved our feng shui consultation in my massage suite and found Mary’s suggestions easy to follow and implement. Now I thoroughly enjoy working in my space, and my clients love the feel. August, notoriously the worst month for massage therapists, was the best business I’ve had. Then September was even better than August.”
– L.S. Hopkinton, MA

“After two days of clearing, organizing, and feng shui adjustments with Mary, we are experiencing more energy and serenity. More extended sleep for me has been the norm. The changes Mary made in the living room left us with a good feeling and a desire to continue the process. We look forward to her return.”

–C.S. Hackettstown, NJ
