Living Harmony Feng Shui Tutorial



The goal of all feng shui is returning and maintaining the harmoniously balanced flow of energy throughout the space; aligning vibrational frequencies for the optimal application of Universal Creation Laws, magnetizing abundance and the successful attainment of one’s consciously chosen intentions.  

So just how do you Feng Shui your space?  Feng Shui is often found to be confusing and complicated, in part due to all the variations.   Because I live in the city I found most feng shui traditions to be almost impossible to follow, simply because there was no way I could lift up and move my building should it not be facing the right direction.  Originally I thought that I’d not be able to use feng shui, but then I found Black Hat Sect Feng Shui and my prayers were answered.

As the tradition of feng shui was brought out into the rest of the world from ancient China, the scholars realized that not every terrain was the same.  And so many versions were created, adapting the basic rules to new needs.  Black Hat Sect Feng Shui works with the existing space, focusing on the originating point of energy.  That means, no matter what the longitude or the direction the space is facing, we always begin with the “entrance of Chi” or usually the front door.   It’s the tradition I’ve been taught in by many esteemed masters who all have been taught by the originator, Master Lin Yun.  Over nearly two decades of working with feng shui both personally and professionally, just as other masters have done, I’ve come to develop my own insights, skills and areas of expertise. 


The main focus of Living Harmony is in helping those who don’t readily manifest their desires immediately with basic feng shui.  Those who have dreams but are truly stuck also have the right – and though may not feel it yet, the divinely inspired power – to manifest their desires abundantly.   Living Harmony’s unique blend of energy tools was developed to help anyone who wishes to create with or without feng shui.  But with feng shui, everything is easier! 

Chi is the term used for energy.  The main goal of feng shui is to manage the flow of energy consciously.  That means that if a business isn’t getting enough clients, we alter the environment to get the flow started again.  Or, if there is discord in a marriage, we calm the energies to create peaceful harmony.  Most often the changes are subtle and easy to do.  Many are astonished to find out that other than their sessions or evaluation, there’s usually not much in the way of cost.  You may wish to get a new plant or a crystal, but these things aren’t generally out of reach for anyone. 

So what’s so confusing about feng shui?  Well, usually since we are coming from stuck energy in the first place we worry that we’re not doing it right, or we may just be too blocked to see what we need ourselves.   My favorite book is a terrific reference and a great place to start as anyone can use it no matter how new or advanced you are, the humor with which it is written conveys a terribly important component of manifesting:  light makes right!

The book, Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life written by Karen Rauch Carter, is a delightful introduction and reference.  Karen’s style is not just conversational but gives away a big hint about what being truly feng shui’d means:  she herself is light, sees abundance in everything and opportunities abound.  It’s a testimony to the work she’s done, but also to the value of feng shui.  Get your copy by clicking the image at right, then when it arrives, grab a cup of something delicious, sit back and watch as your joy rises knowing you are about to create abundance and prosperity in a fun and supportive way. 


In the meantime, this tutorial includes some basic information about feng shui, and some of the insights that have been developed for my Living Harmony clients along the way to successes. 

One need not be a trained Feng Shui expert to see and feel it:  look around you with all your senses.  Do you often clean your desk or a certain part of the room, only to have that space filled up soon after in the same pattern of disorganization?  Are there areas of your environment, well-decorated as they are, that you simply don’t ever use?  Do you find yourself walking around certain areas even though it would be faster to walk through them?  Or do you find your plants thriving in one area but always dying off in another even though they are appropriately chosen for the location? 

These are just some of the examples of how environmental energy affects us.  But it goes deeper, has a far greater reach.  For just as dust gathers in corners, so too does energy stagnate in our spaces, forming directive patterns, sticking us like glue to the experiences we wish to change or grow. 

We don’t have to be passive, we can manage the effects of all of our energies.  Feng Shui can help us do just that, all by just moving a few items around and clearing out the spaces in between. 

As we clear our spaces, once more we are able to direct our conscious intention.  And we’re soon able to keep our focus on what we’ve been able to achieve and what we’d like to create for ourselves.  Suddenly all our resources more easily guide us into the successful realization of our dreams.  Think about all the wonderful things you’ve achieved to date:  you should take special pride in knowing that you can visualize your dreams and have them manifest so wonderfully.  You really don’t have to be stuck at all! 

The most successful people know that the only way to ultimate success is to combine strengths and use tools.  One of the biggest and most often overlooked resources we all have are the environments we inhabit...which actually aren’t separate from us at all.  And being connected as we are, even though we may not yet know it, harnessing the energy of our spaces provides tremendous power and momentum carrying us ever closer to our desired creations.

Just as we can’t see the initial build-up of dust, so too are we unaware of the slowly stagnating energy around us.  The good news is that stagnant energy is easily cleared and the results are astounding!  Marriages become loving and communicative again, finances begin to flow once more and wellbeing in all areas improve.  Best of all, these shifts seem so easy compared to how hard we worked under our own limited conscious power. 

One of the most confusing and frustrating aspects of working with Feng Shui is what I feel are the challenges of working with what some experts consider “musts” in terms of adjustments or what are called “cures.”  Take for example the concept that one can never use dried flowers in your home, for dried flowers are dead and convey dead energy.  Well, yes, I can assure you having worked in the craft industry formerly there are a lot of dried floral arrangements that convey death and bad taste and...oh, but I digress.  Okay, so here’s where I have a problem with this concept:  almost all my furniture is wood.  Um, that would be dead wood, right?  So it’s not so much that we can’t have dead things in our space, it’s what the things convey visually and energetically!  I could have a 150 year old antique dresser that conveys abundance and riches to me, but to someone else it could be an old family eyesore that reminds them daily of the painful childhood they spent at their cold grandmother’s house.  It’s still dead wood, but to one person it’s a positive vibration and to another it’s a constant reminder of pain. 

As the practice began so early in history, Feng Shui’s often criticized as being rift with superstitions.  But as our knowledge of quantum physics grows and our understanding of intentional creative manifesting with Universal Laws expands we clearly see that the original intent of those now superstitious aspects were valid and can easily be reinterpreted for today’s needs.  

We can personalize various aspects according to our own backgrounds and personal taste.  Depending on your own preferences, it doesn’t really matter if you feature an image of a Dragon or a Leprechaun as your physical reminder of your intention to create strength and wealth, for if the visual anchors your intention strongly then success is surely within reach.  As for being complicated, most find that with a few simple adjustments Feng Shui is incredibly intuitive, it’s actually easier to learn how than to keep fighting against what we didn’t know was blocking us in the first place.

Regardless of which type of Feng Shui you decide to work with, the same rules apply for all stuck energy.  If you are not creating the results you want, then you simply must address the reasons blocking you or else concede to failure.  But with energy management tools such as Aromatherapy and Emotional Freedom Technique, used in combination with fine tuning Feng Shui adjustments, moving quickly and easily through blocks can be so easy it will all seem like success was meant to be.  And it is! 

One thing is certain:  when a dream comes from deep within and it seems as if nothing will make it lesson, even in the face of repeated failures, that dream is most probably Divinely inspired.  Whatever your religious beliefs, there are simply some dreams that we wish upon and let go, and others that call to us until we succeed.  As we clear the blocks and manage the flow of our energies consistently toward our dreams we’ll soon see that it’s not a random act of chance that causes our seemingly immediate success, but rather that what we desire has been evolving toward us, until we were ready to receive it into our present reality.  

As we work with Feng Shui and energy management tools, clearing away our blocks and supporting our energies creating harmonic resonance with our dreams, sometimes our dreams do shift around a bit.  We may decide after all that we don’t want that original dream, but a variation.  Or we may choose to tweak it bit by bit until it’s just right.  Just as with true love, we’ll know when it’s right. 

The best part is, as we continue to manage our vibrational frequency, no longer will we have to “dig down deep and gather up our courage” to maintain our faith, we will simply have a deep sense of knowing, a peaceful detachment (which is handy since we need to employ the Universal Law of Detachment if we’re ever going to manifest our desires!)  And this peaceful surety will remain with us until the right time, the time when we realize the manifestation of our dreams into our present reality.
