Feng Shui Eyes--Feng Shui Long Island Consultant

This is, undoubtedly, a difficult post for me because there are so many different views and perspectives about Feng Shui in ANY space, I can tell you what WE look for-and try to explain WHY.  A warning:  It is long.  If you want an understanding of Feng Shui Eyes and Principles, read on!

When Feng Shui Consultants are looking at a Home, Business, Office, Corporation or are called in to review floor plans for new construction or a renovation, there are many things we are always mindful of.  Many of us start from the outside to do an Exterior Evaluation.  We are looking for a busy street, a T Junction, whether the home is on a Dead End or cul de sac; all of these have an impact on the energy of the place we are evaluating.

Fast moving traffic?  Things can pass you by in your life by moving so fast.  Living in a cul de sac (where energy pools) can sometimes make people feel "stuck."  Dead End:  In some forms of Feng Shui things are taken VERY literally.  There are several ways to Intentionally "cure" ALL these things.  If there is ONE THING that I've learned after so many years of practice it is this:  ANY BUILDING CAN SUPPORT YOU IF YOU TRULY LOVE IT.  There is nothing stronger then YOUR own Chi.  Many practitioners might disagree with me but I'm sharing my opinions only.

I advise my clients, if you LOVE it, BUY it.  We can Intentionally cure any Feng Shui issues and since they are primarily done by Intention they need be difficult to do or cost much money. 

We then look at the Front Door and the pathway leading up to it.  If you recall, in Feng Shui we refer to this as the Mouth of Chi.  It is where all good energy enters.  We want to feel Graced into our space and make others feel the same.  One example of something I ask my clients to use if possible are solar lights...leading the Energy right inside.

Feng Shui Stairs--Feng Shui New York City

Once inside we look at what we see immediately when we walk in.  Many of you have heard that stairs sweep our Energy right upstairs (and it often can) but we have many ways to deflect that.  If the entrance door leads directly to a backyard door, it is said that your Energy and all the Good that comes in will go right back out again.  We also have things to correct this.  Other things we check:  Doorways (they are the VOICES in Feng Shui).  Many doors can create chatter-or arguments.  Or when two doors are opened at once, do them "hit" or bump into each other?  In the Black Sect tradition these are called "Arguing Doors."  And there is a blessing for that specifically for those that can not afford to change their doors.

Feng Shui Hallway--Feng Shui

Long hallways can be an issue---again, a sweep of Energy right down the hall.  While we WANT Energy to move, we do NOT want it to move too fast!  We diffuse it.  From both an Exterior and Interior perspective we lay out he Bagua.  I have been asked, on occasion, to "read" a home and have been pretty successful in telling my clients where they might be having certain issues or difficulties.  Firewood stored in either your Wealth or Partnership area can create a loss of income and financial issue or partnership difficulties, both business AND personal.  What's in the HEART of Your Home? UPDATED! A Feng Shui Home in Pictures.....  (In this post you can SEE the potential issues in a home).

Concentrating on each area during a walk through we look for Furniture Placement for Energy Flow, The Five Elements in each room, colors, patterns, artwork, textures....the list can be endless.  One thing we NEVER miss is the way a home makes us FEEL.  Those feelings, we believe are often times caused by Predecessor Energy---from former occupants or even current ones who have been through a divorce or any relationship issues.  If there is a Home Office we pay special attention to that.  Let's Talk About Predecessor Energy: A Feng Shui Post from Feng Shui Long Island

There is some controversy over which ROOM is most important in Feng Shui.  Some consider it to be the Bedroom, some the Kitchen.  In my own personal opinion while it certainly CAN help to address one room, in reality it's not much more expensive to do an entire home---years ago it wasn't taught to us to do a room at all but it seems to be becoming a popular thing to do. 

The Principles of Feng Shui are many....and they are all stored right inside.  It takes MANY years and MANY Feng Shui Consultations to achieve true FENG SHUI EYES.  And once you have them, they cannot be turned off!  But I wouldn't have it any other way.

Carole - I can't believe I missed this post!  You have made the art of Seng Shui seem so clear.  I need to do something with my foyer as I have stairs going up from the front door.  ( I also have a return stairs from the landing to the kitchen)  I wonder what you think about that?  This was a wonderful post Carole!

Kathy, If you can email me a picture I can let you know my thoughts before you think about paving....it may not be that you need something expensive at all and I don't mind looking at them.  (And sorry for the late response, I was not feeling very well for a few days).

Jeff & Grace, I have never believed that a place that someone loved could be a "kiss of death" and that's not the way I view things.  When you think about it, what is stronger then LOVE?  It (and some changes) can overcome just about anything.

Trace, I'm glad that you read and I don't think you need to bookmark, you sometimes bring things back up to me that I've said :)

Julie, They used to speak about that in class and I wondered if I would ever be able to see things like that.  I truly think they just develop over tirme--lots of time.

Candy, I was late getting back to my own post :(  If your stairs have a landing in the center, it's actually a good thing as it doesn't direct the energy straight up or down.  I'm not sure if that's what you meant but if you have a question just email me.
