Let Go Of Expectations when Feng Shui-ing your Home and Life

Let go of expectations! This may sound counter intuitive yet there is truth to the statement.  Of course set your intentions and take the necessary actions to assist in nurturing them. While at the same time releasing your hold on specific outcomes. 

Here is a quick story about a New York client named, Larry whom I worked with in 2012.  One of his main intentions was deciding whether to stay in a relationship or not. He implemented the suggested Feng Shui changes into his apartment and about a month later shared he decided to break up with his girlfriend.  

What?? HOLD ON....What type of Feng Shui-ing is this? 

Now before you jump to judgment, keep this in mind, he already held the intention of should he break up with his girlfriend or not. By him committing to implementing the feng shui changes inside his home, it felt it helped him become clearer with his decision.

             Ready for another twist in the story? 

The following year in 2013, I received an email from a new client who happened to be Larry's ex. I have to say I was very surprised and thought in that moment....OMG what does she want??!! The universe works in mysterious ways, as they say. Long story short, Emma shared the break up with Larry was one of the best decisions for both of them. She saw how amazing he was doing so she figured, why not give feng shui a try. 

So you see, not only is it necessary for the client to let go of expectations, it's also necessary for the feng shui consultant to let go as well. And I am happy to report both are doing great!
