Above and Below the Surface of Creation
“There is an ocean of energy surrounding us, running through us and affecting us that is anything but passive or uncontrollable. We can learn to make simple adjustments to our environments directing these energies to support us as we create loves we love…in Living Harmony.” Cat Stone
Like water, there are energies that manifest in physical form. Like air, there are energies unseen yet at times felt. We know these elements exist. Even when we can’t see them we can feel them and we understand they affect us. Sometimes the effects are good, helpful and create abundances for us. Other times the effects are sustaining or neutral. And then there are times when the effects are damaging. The good news is, we can learn how to intentionally direct these energies! When harnessed effectively, these energies yield tremendous creative power. Just as with our personal energy, one simple adjustment in our surroundings can often be all that’s needed to direct vibrating ripples throughout the seen and unseen world, shifting frequencies, changing momentum, propelling us on to the abundance we desire to create.
Literally translated “Wind and Water,” Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese science and art of managing the seen and unseen physical and energetic elements making up the environments in which we live and work to create the greatest possible abundance, wellbeing, peace and harmony in our lives. With Feng Shui, relieving stress, boosting profits and living healthier more abundant lives is just a fine-tuning away. By creating energetic harmony in your environment, you can better manifest more of what you want including love, success, wealth, healthy relationships…even weight loss.
It’s said the energy of our environments amounts to one third of our personal creative energy. Why waste all that power, and have to drain the rest of our personal resources as well? Most often it’s because we don’t know that the energy of our environment affects us. Even when we do know our spaces affect us we simply don’t know how to manage them. This isn’t about decorating, it’s about energy management.
As you learn more about Feng Shui, you’ll realize wherever your environment is not supporting you, it’s either draining your energies from your desires or directly opposing them. Unless you learn to direct the energies of your space, you must use your own personal energies, often already taxed, to make up the difference or fight through the barriers. Fighting against our own environments, we often ask “Why is conscious manifesting so difficult?” Increasingly pouring in our personal force of will, we are devoting our conscious minds and our physical force against the unseen wall of blocked energy of our environments only to feel thwarted and drained as our resistance to what is grows these blocks. Clearly positive thinking or brute force alone often isn’t enough.
Feng Shui helps you power-up the Law of Attraction!
In fact, it helps us power-up all Universal Laws.
How? Feng Shui might sound fantastical but the truth is you already understand this subject more than you know, and a few simple lessons can give you a tremendous advantage. Just a few simple adjustments in your home or office really can help you feel calmer, more powerful and help you become more prosperous too. With your Feng Shui effectively aligned, you put yourself right into the flow of abundance, magnetizing success to you! Using only our conscious minds to create is not only frustrating, it’s foolish. We have a whole universe right in our very homes and offices filled with energy just waiting to be harnessed!
Feng Shui not only helps us better manage the unseen energies around us, it supports our own personal energies making them available to be directed fully and effectively where we need. But perhaps most importantly, it supports our conscious intentions with anchoring visual reminders, focusing all our energies – conscious and unconscious – consistently directed at our desired goals.
“We begin to see, therefore, the importance of selecting our environment with the greatest of care, because environment is the mental feeding ground out of which the food that goes into our minds is extracted.”
All Feng Shui divides our spaces into nine different sections called Guas. Combined, these sections make up the environment’s energetic map called the Bagua. Encompassing all areas of life including Career and Lifepath, Skills and Knowledge, Family and New Beginnings, Friends and Loved Ones, Fame and Reputation, Children and Creativity, Helpful People and Travel, Spirituality and Wellbeing, and of course Prosperity and Abundance, we work with the energy of each section as well as the whole space to harmonize flow for optimal prosperity. The Bagua can be applied over a house, an office, a shopping complex, a town and even smaller spaces such as the surface of your desk! Sounds amazing, right?
While there are many variations of Feng Shui called “schools”, some can be very complex and confusing, but it doesn’t have to be. Living in Hoboken, NJ, a small and vibrant city across the Hudson River west of New York, I had a hard time personally working with traditional Feng Shui. The rules and ancient customs didn’t resonate with my perspectives or personality. When I learned about Black Hat Sect Feng Shui I felt I’d found my perfect toolkit! Instead of making complicated calculations based on longitude and lattitude, Black Hat teaches us to harness the power coming into our space through the entrance to our space. The focus, then, as with all Feng Shui is to manage the flow of life force energy, called Chi, to flow throughout the space evenly and consistently thus supporting abundance throughout all the Guas.
When I began applying this style of Feng Shui to my home and office all sorts of wonderful things began happening. At work, my work produced exponentially larger sales and profoundly more effective marketing campaigns. It seemed every project I touched magically worked better than expected. My personal finances also grew as did my circle of friends and fun. Soon I began sharing what I was learning with colleagues, friends and family. When they began referring people to me I began offering my services as a side-hustle. Thus, my energy practice began as a Feng Shui consultancy teaching clients how to manage their environment energies to create successfully. Without struggle or worry, my dream of owning my own business was simply unfolding happily and prosperously!
My clients also began to realize their dreams enjoying the seemingly magical transformation of lives. From time to time some clients lamented still being frustratingly stuck. I noticed that often the most “stuck” clients were the ones who had previously spent thousands on self-help programs, coaches, courses and even Feng Shui that didn’t seem to work. For some it seemed the more they spent, the harder they worked, the more frustrated and disappointed they became. Having struggled so much myself these were the things that captivated my heart and my desire to help them. Here is where my passion for helping even the most stuck and unsuccessful client successfully and finally achieve their goals was born.
As a master practitioner of personal energy modalities such as EFT, I clearly saw the opportunity to connect these modalities to achieve the most relief and the greatest success for myself and my clients!
The answers can now be found throughout this site, and in the stories of my many successful clients who all know that with the right tools we can clear any stuck energy, shift our vibrational frequencies and navigate through our personal storms until we reach a new day, the day in which our dreams unfold in this our present reality.
When we ask “will this work for me” we’re often asking because in either pain or confusion or both, we’re looking for something or someone outside of ourselves to fix our problems or make our dreams come true. We might also ask this question because we’ve tried so much already and either made small progress or nothing worked.
The answer is it isn’t energy work that makes our problems go away or our dreams come true. Energy modalities such as EFT Tapping, Feng Shui, Aromatherapy and more help us make the shifts and releases in our energy system, releasing our blocks effectively so that we can keep taking effective action and making effective choices which all work together to change our lives.
When we keep working in this effective manner, we learn the truth that it is we who actually make our dreams come true and with our tools and support we can!
Right from our first session my clients report feeling calmer and having a confidence they can heal whatever it is they’ve struggled with. Sometimes clients have immediate and complete shifts so that they feel their problems are completely resolved in just one session or even one round. Gary Craig, the founder of Emotional Freedom Techniques, called these experiences “one-minute-wonders” and they are amazing. When this happens it’s very exciting and encouraging.
Most of our life challenges are comprised of many “aspects” and their root causes can be from a variety of sources. We often know we have a bit of clearing to do before we really start to see significant changes. Each clearing frees up stuck energy which helps us feel better and stronger. We have more power to do the job at hand. And as we clear one issue another often rises up to take it’s place. This can feel very daunting if we don’t know what’s happening, and if we don’t understand how to consciously manifest our desires.
It’s important to learn that your subconscious, ego, inner child, higher self, all aspects of you are actually there to support you but sometimes the programs they are running are old, outdated or just simply negative. Change programming and you’ll get very different and often much better outcomes! The truth is our subconscious and other parts are always responding to what we ask for and tell them. When we seek to release ourselves from pains, past and present, our subconscious will begin bringing these bits of stuck energy to our conscious attention not to make us feel worse or hopeless but because it’s saying “here, here’s the next bit to release, to heal!” Our job is to keep working through all that is brought up which brings us closer and closer to making our dreams our reality!
Here’s some fantastic news: we do not have to clear everything negative we have ever felt, thought or experienced in order to have the life we want. We simply need to clear whatever is related to our desired outcome. This is the most efficient way to use energy modalities to help us heal what we specifically need and it’s usually a fairly fast and clear process. Most helpful is the sense of confidence we begin experiencing as we work our way through our steps.
My clients learn basic EFT from their very first session! Most people feel a little something with their very first experience. Even beginners happily describe relief from stress right away. From the moment they finish their first session my clients can begin tapping on and for themselves – releasing stress, self-soothing, and balancing – right when they need it. So the basic form of EFT is very easy to learn.
One of the biggest obstacles to learning how to use any energy modality is that our problems and pain often seem so big and overwhelming we think we need a complicated tool to feel better. The longer we experience pain or disappointment, the more we think we need something really powerful to combat it. In our modern world we know all about small buttons that activate really big things! For example, to drive a car you use simple techniques that are easy to apply – pushing the ignition button to start the entire engine, turning the wheel and pressing the gas or break with your foot – to make the complex automobile machine do all the work for you, to take you where you want to go.
The same is true with EFT – and most energy techniques. These tools are the keys to harnessing your own incredible, innate healing and processing mechanisms. With energy modalities as the key you can turn up your own healing release power to go wherever you want! Just as a luxury car is a powerful machine with an incredibly smooth and comfortable ride, energy work is gentle yet very powerful as well as comforting and uplifting.
Basic aspects of energy work are easy to learn and great results can be achieved with this level. Energy work is actually a series of techniques that work together to create increasingly better and more profound results. As with any skill they can take while to learn to use them competently. To develop the skill required to be an advanced practitioner, it takes years of detailed study, thorough training and supervised application and review.
