After having been on a few Feng Shui consultations recently on the North Shore of Long Island (which I now LOVE!), I wasn't surprised to hear from a client in Laurel Hollow in Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York. She had recently began working with Reiki and was working very much with Energy. She is the owner of a lovely place she conceived of and opened three years ago and they were already preparing to move to a larger space; prior to the move she was having a difficult time figuring out her furniture placement and working with Feng Shui which prompted her call. The name of her business is "YOGA ROCKS" and I believe it's time has come. It is a Yoga place primarily for CHILDREN and their parents who are seeking a more wholistic way to attune their children to alternative healing techniques.
She has had particular success with children with such disorders as ADD and ADHD. Yoga helps them to focus and their reports from ALL their physicians had improved due to their ability to keep focused on whatever other treatments they were receiving, such as Physical Therapy or Occupational Therapy. Even reading and math scores went up. I love healing modalities that do not include medication unless absolutely necessary. We relate Feng Shui to a natural form of healing.
Her home was located on a huge estate in land that had formerly been owned by Rockefellers and the Vanderbilts. We discussed her rearrangement of furniture and using exactly what she had would be able to create the type of atmosphere she was seeking which was to have friends over and a place to entertain them. Her new home was small, this was originally the garage turned "Artist's Studio" on the property of the main home on the property. Organizing help and just a redesign to help the furniture work together was all that she needed.
What caught me completely by surprise was when I went outside to evaluate her property. Outside her front door was the place where she parked and just beyond that a small grotto. But let me back up a minute. We were taught years ago when going to a consultation to look for "Signs" along the way. While I was on the expressway I saw something I couldn't quite see clearly. It was flying across the sky and I could see it waving in the wind...it wasn't a huge flag, it appeared to be a dollar bill....which of course would have meant abundance. I couldn't get close enough to make it out for sure but it certainly wasn't one of the blimps we have here on Long Island.
My client preferred I did not take pictures of her personal space but she did allow me to show you the outside. And a treasure in Oyster Bay, Long Island.
The sign, if you can't read it, says "Lourdes Hill." When I asked my client about it, she said the owner relayed there have been "sightings" there and a grotto was built to honor them.
A closer picture of the amazing Grotto. This was right outside her front door, obscured by her car. What beautiful energy to let in! And the other "sign" which I believe was abundance, I think she will do VERY well!
Driving just a few feet up from her home is the North Shore of Long Island. The town is Laurel Hollow, in Oyster Bay, New York. The pictures were so beautiful I thought you might like to see them:

I believe not only the concept of her business but her energy and surroundings, in and out, are going to cause her to be well known one day. Remember, Yoga ROCKS!
