Feng Shui New York Renovations
My Feng Shui Consultation today was on Long Island's wonderful town of Huntington, New York. If you are familiar with Long Island at all, you're probably aware of this town and it's special qualities. It's almost like a little piece of New York City on Long Island: quaint little shops, wonderful places to eat. At night, the town is still "hopping." There are bars and restaurants and wonderful older theaters-and it's bookstores. I am Books and The Book Revue are two favorites with something always going on.
My client's today were fantastic, completely in touch with Feng Shui and well read on the subject but....you guessed it, perhaps, they were confused. I explained about the different schools of Feng Shui, the different methods we use and the different perspectives we sometimes have.
I asked for their particular reason for calling for a Feng Shui Consultation because things in their lives were going well. They would both like to make some career changes but other then that, all seemed fine. They had called because they wanted to make renovations to their home and wanted to make sure it wouldn't throw the wonderful energy they felt inside "out of balance."
It often happens in renovations. Feng Shui Consultants like to bless prior to major renovations for the simple reason that the energy is moving so rapidly during renovations in a home or business, it can stir up temporary chaos. We also want to make sure things go well, work comes off in the manner it's supposed to with no unforeseen difficulties.
After teaching them about the topics and principles of Feng Shui, we evaluate both the outside and inside and make suggestions for placements, elements, things to do to "Get their Name out to the Universe" and particularly in this case, for their Career areas. My client was from Lebanon and I was interested to hear of the strong beliefs in Feng Shui over there. He is also quite a diverse and talented person and I hope to show some of his handmade, fascinating artwork in an upcoming Localism post.
*Stuck in the middle of Renovations
*The WEALTH area...OUCH! (These clients were "stuck" in the middle of renovations--a job was lost and the money ran out. Within a short time after the Feng Shui Consultation a new job was found and all the work was completed!).
In making suggestions and speaking to both of these people at length while explaining my reasoning behind the suggestions, it was easy to see they both "got it." I asked them later if it all made sense and it completely did, they resonated with the suggestions because they understood the INTENTIONS behind them. Explaining to your clients the "whys" of your suggestions works well in ANY business and it was no exception in this case. They are more likely to take your suggestions because they understand another perspective.
I am thrilled that I will be going back after the renovations and have been given permission to use both before and after pictures which will show the renovations as well as BALANCE in the home. The impacts of Feng Shui are sometimes seen but ALWAYS felt!
