This house belongs to some of the best clients I have EVER consulted for---and that's saying a lot! They live in the beautiful town of Oyster Bay on Long Island, New Yorkand were in need of repairs, Feng Shui and Organizing. You couldn't ask to meet more wonderful, warmhearted people and despite their state of disrepair in their home, they never stop and complain or let it get them down. That's pretty hard to do when you're living in a state like this, but that's the way they are. They truly LIVE The Secret every day and know things will get better. Although it's been a long haul for them, they are getting there.
The damage was caused by Termites that went undetected for a very long time. Long enough that I don't believe there was any part of their home that hadn't been affected. They have conquered the problem and finally are rebuilding. If you own a home, this can happen to you---and me. But I can say THEY have taught ME more lessons then I could have taught them. After all, tomorrow is another day....to rebuild.
Their office space had to be condensed, however it was still too cluttered and unorganized. Today there are pictures on the walls that are inspiring and it has been completely organized. They can find everything in a heartbeat!
Exposed beams are known in Feng Shui as "Cutting Chi" or "Cutting Sha" meaning that it cuts right into your energy. They were originally sleeping in a room like this but I had them move to the living room until their bedrooms were repaired and redone.
For now they are more comfortably (and safely) sleeping in the living room (and sleeping better!).
Having the walls down and being in this state does not prevent them from cooking wonderful meals.
They are to be congratulated. For the rebuilding (with some Feng Shui Tips and Advice) but just as much for their attitude through this crisis. And during this, they have experienced some very fortunate occurrences. I have learned a lot from this lovely family who allowed me into their lives and keep a positive, happy attitude during a very trying time.
