Feng Shui Synchronicity at Work---Back to Northport, Long Island

By
Home Stager with Feng Shui Manhattan Long Island #888

I should be used to these types of things by now, that is if you can ever really GET used to them.  They happen often enough in my life and still astound me.  A recent blog post and the things that have happened in just the last few days make me always remember that something much more powerful then ourselves are at work at times.  This is one of those times.

A recent blog I posted Scared Away with Feng Shui? How I "lost" my client in Northport, Long Island New York was about the fact that I hadn't heard from this lovely client and believed Feng Shui and the changes that occured since her consultation made her "back off."  She had many changes during the first two weeks of our consultation, starting from the day I left her home.  This post may not make sense unless you read the original one but I watch the synchronicities and still marvel.

The following morning I woke up to this email (I am removing her address which she was kind enough to share):

I am the person who brought the dog back to  your client on ___ lane.I also brought the book , The Auspicious Goat , to her because the dog came to my door and wanted me to follow him home. The book had been delivered to my house "9"  Northport. only a few hours before the dog came.This was after twelve and a half years work. I was compelled to take the book to her but have never heard from her .You might enjoy the book because there is a whole chapter on the number "9" and over 200 photos I took on the surrounding area.When you are around our neighbourhood stop in and I will show you our Auspicious pumpkins, who at 14 days old is almost 200 pounds.Hopefully she is growing in an auspicious spot in our garden.I came upon your story by accident...that is if you believe in accidents.....Carolyn

I KNOW people find our blogs and read them, I just wasn't expecting this!  Actually, although I had changed my client's name to "Linda" and her cat to a dog, of course she recognized who I was writing about because it included her, the writer of "The Auspicious Goat."  I remember speaking with Linda and had thought she said she had a copy for me and now I wasn't sure since apparently she hadn't gone back to her neighbors home.  I wrote her back and thanked her for her email and her gracious offer and said I would give Linda a call to see if she did, in fact, have a book for me. 

Well, I didn't have a chance to.  I was trying to clean out and finish up some work on my computer and going through emails that had been sitting there for almost a week.  There was a new site I had just signed on to, biz2bizli and decided to take the time and fill out my profile information.  I was just signing on and it displays who is online.  I don't know a soul on that site, it is new and I saw Linda's name.  There were exactly TWO of us online at the time, just myself and her.  I IMed her and it probably through her a bit because of my urgency...something like 'PLEASE call me asap'!  I hadn't even had a chance to call her yet and BOTH of us were signing onto the same site at the same time??

She did, sweetheart that she is.  We caught up and I finally asked her if Feng Shui and the changes had scared her off.  Not at ALL, she said, she was very open to Feng Shui and many other things.  Well, I couldn't NOT tell her about the blog but it was a difficult moment because I didn't know how she would take it.  I wanted  to tell her about the email as well from her lovely neighbor.  She went on and read the blog while we were speaking (and later went back and put a comment on it).  She told me she had not gone back to her neighbor because she thought perhaps her neighbor might feel obligated to give her one....instead, she had gone to a local store and bought one for me.  And hadn't gotten back to me, not because she was scared but because she was so busy!  Aside from the changes I wrote about in the last blog, business had increased!

I was able to write back to Carolyn that my client and I had "met up."  And we would BOTH like to see her and her Auspicious pumpkin.  What a kind offer from a wonderful person I have never even met.  Since I was thrown by the email, I had told Val what happened.  She said she sounds like such an interesting person and would like to go.  I have a feeling Carolyn is going to get a few of us----and I also have a feeling she won't mind a bit!  I will update this blog and share her website so please visit from time to time so I can post a picture of her pumpkin.  And if you are interested in reading her amazing book, "The Auspicious Goat" she can be contacted at  ZeBillyGoat@aol.com

I remember some of the comments said you thought I'd hear from her at some point...And you were right but no one could see this happening!  No accidents here, just Feng Shui and Synchronicity at work!

Great stories, Carole! Thanks for sharing. I have an amazing amount of "coincidences" in my life too. I'm convinced they're NOT :)

Carole- eerie at first, but becoming interesting to me now...I'm getting closer to having you Feng Shui our house! :) (I mentioned once before that it was a scary proposition to me, having someone as intuitive as yourself uncover the  "good, bad and ugly")! :)

Carole, what an amazing story. So many things at work here beneath the surface. It is incredible how we are all connected  together beneath the surface nuances of everyday appearances, isn't it ?  The subconscious mind(s) at work.

I'm so glad you've had this experience and now have an answer to your question (as well as a wonderful new friend).

Hi Carole,
What a story!  Jo-Anne said it well, we are all connected (like it or not).  Our minds are so very powerful, we just don't understand or know how to use the power we possess.

Carole - I have goosebumps just reading this post!  Recently, I was telling my assistant how much I wanted a paint chip fan - I don't think that's the technical term - but I didn't want to plunk down $10 for one.  Three days later, in the mail, I got a coupon from StagedHomes and Sherwin Williams - they have linked up and now any A.S.P. can get a free paint fan as well as discounts on paint.  This happens ALL THE TIME to me!  Life is so amazing ~ I leap out of bed every morning so excited to see what's going to happen next!

Joan, it took you this long?  :)  It does still amaze me every day.

Mary, I'm not sure what causes them and I think some people have them more then others but this was too good not to post about.  I got the email the morning after I posted the blog!  I'm looking forward to meeting this woman, there is a reason she brought my clients pet back to meet her and a reason for all of us to meet. 

Laurie, this is no bad or ugly...there are some better aspects then others.  If there is anything unfavorable, we change it!  At little or no cost.  I couldn't do this work if I didn't believe in it 100%.

Jo, your post about the subconcious had an impact on me; it was mentioned to me later that day by someone who knew nothing about your post!

Cynthia, we are ALL connected.  Sometimes I think my Six Degress of Separation are only two!

Teri, everything I post is true.  Even this was a bit much for me, I really should know to expect the unexpected but this was incredible in timing as well as the connections.

Melissa, if it happens all the time to you, too, you are attracting it in.  Isn't it amazing what we create for ourselves?

Lizette, I never know what's going to happen either.  Life has become an adventure that I didn't expect!  I love it!

Carole...

I have just subscribed to your blog so that I can learn more about Feng Shui.

I know very little about this but I do plan on doing some homework on the subject.

I would like to say that I to believe everything happens for a reason and we just are not all made these reasons.

TLW...ROAR!

We believe in so many cultures I have everything and anything to protect me from "negativity" (the handing mirrors so it reflects and chases them back out...the positioning of my furniture....foot of bed does not look out the bedroom door. Backs of chairs do not face doors/windows. You should post some more stuff about positioning.  I love that stuff!  Oh...put reasons why too!

Hey Carole,

I can't believe that I'm just getting around to comment on this post now, but I was off AR for a number of days and am trying to catch up!

You know that, like yourself and so many others, I believe that everything happens for a reason and that there are no coincidences.  I think that this whole 'tale' is so interesting in the way that everything has unfolded and, of course, would love to see how it progresses!

BTW, Carole, you have gained so many 'fans' with respect to your blogs and talents....I am so glad that you decided to 'hang in there' and continue to post!

Thank you, TLW, I am thrilled that you want to learn more about Feng Shui.  If I didn't absolutely believe in it, I couldn't do it.  Sheron is currently posting about it because I am doing a consultation for her and she is documenting it.  Thank goodness she is off to a great start!  Someday I would like to ROAR....there is SO much to ROAR about :)

Sally, that is a post I haven't done....and would be quite lenghty but I will certainly do one, possibly in parts because of your interst.  There are, as you know, certain principles on the placement of furniture to allow for a harmonious flow of Energy.  From your posts, though, it sounds like you've got that down!

Val, I will certainly call you when we go, if her "Auspicious Pumpkin" reaches another ten pounds it will also make a new record.  She sounds like an absolutely facinating person and of course I was meant to meet her!  As for my posts, I wouldn't still be on AR if you hadn't encouraged me.  It was getting pretty discouraging but it seems to have sparked an interest and I hope that encourages people to just TRY it.

I try. I know I will keep all the positive in my home and ward off the negativity. I tried plenty bamboo plants and placing them in the direction of prosperity etc. but they all died because we were smoking back then :) ......I would appreciate it and if you explain why then it would surely make some sense to a lot of the positive group. I think this group is very open minded.

Sally, I love your group and think I was one of the first to sign up.  I know how important it is to keep a positive attitude as well as a good energy flow.  It's funny that you mentioned a bamboo plant; as taught to us years ago, BAMBOO itself is very auspicious---it indicates strength while still maintaining an ability to be flexible (Go with the FLOW).  Also because it grows so fast it is very "Eco Friendly" (not the phrase back then :)  But Bamboo plants were not considered particularly auspicious because they have sharp, pointy ends and we look for plants with rounded type leaves; I think someone took off on the idea and now we all have them!  Thanks for your reply, I will write the post soon and post it to your group and I appreciate the thought.

Chinese are the ones who live by the bamboo....they even have it braided...in tiers etc.....Check this hotel out here in Waikiki geared for Feng Shui...http://www.aquaresorts.com/aqua-bamboo/index.htm

"The sanctuary of Aqua Bamboo & Spa gracefully combines the harmony of the tropics with the serenity of Asian Feng Shui to create an intimate place of leisure and relaxation"

Good topic for you to write.....

Sally, thank you for the comment.  The Chinese love bamboo for the reasons I mentioned and also during Feng Shui years ago because it relates so closely, we learned about Bau-Biology.  All natural materials that don't harm the earth, outgass, have exessive electro magnetic energy, geopathic stress on the land...a whole study in itself.  Today it is "Greening." 

Interesting to think these things are finally, years later finally being addressed :) 

But Feng Shui is about plants with rounded leaves which bamboo plants don't have.  Back then, at any rate, we were told about it and it is incorporated because it grows so quickly and is strong yet able to "Go with the Flow." It is incorporated into new construction because it then, in later years, became known as a "lucky plant."  But from what I remember, that wasn't the origins of why it was used, although I could be wrong.

Carol - I'm with you - there is synchronicity going on all the time; either I can choose to accept it or call it coincidence.  Candidly, it does freak me out just a bit sometimes though.  Other times I'm able to delight in it.

I'm going to google that book right now - it sounds like something that would be right up my alley!

Jackie,  When it happens over and over again I too get mystified but I always find it amazing.  I do not believe in coincidences and think everything happens for a reason.  The synchronicities of this story just went on and on...

Thank you for your comment!
