In feng shui, we leave no stone unturned. This includes observing a person's habits and behavioral patterns to offer a deeper opportunity of self awareness.
How could feng shui bring about deeper self awareness?
During a feng shui consultation I ask clients to share their goals and challenges, which is key. This also allows them to LISTEN to their own words of description.
As we walk though their space together, it's amazing how the home aligns with what they share (goals and especially the challenges) before any feng shui changes are made. Essentially, their home illustrates areas of their lives that are full of happiness or confusion through the display of certain artwork, colors, function of rooms and more. Being armed with that information allows us to implement mindfully suggested feng shui changes that help revitalize a new found awareness and sense of focus to attain their goals.
After our on site consultation is completed, I encourage my clients to stay in-touch. This is very important because as they make adjustments, they may need continued guidance.
Situation: Client Needs Help Attracting a Partner (Love)
A client envisions attracting a partner yet, they keep picking guys who "are not ready for a committed relationship." The other aspect to their case studt is all the images in their home display single people
From a feng shui perspective, this situation becomes opportunity for self reflection.
1.Easy changes: replace all or at least most images with artwork that offer partnership subject matter. This could include two abstract figures dancing, two flowers, two cats and/or they could have the accent colors of pink (for love). Basically, use images and/or objects in pairs. And by the way, this is very general.
2. Could take more time and worth it: Ask yourself, where did I learn to choose guys who are afraid of commitment? A person's answer could very well extend back into their childhood (interactions with mom and dad). There is much more, yet I just wanted to share a general idea with what it means in feng shui to allow for self reflection.
As a person combines "surface level feng shui" (colors, textures, funciton of a room) and deeper self reflection methods, the changes could become that much greater and truly life changing.
