When I speak in public about Feng Shui, there’s always a big audience reaction when I list off some of the things that Feng Shui is NOT.
While Feng Shui IS a lot of things, the visceral response to what it isn’t always strikes me.
I take this to mean that there are still a lot of myths out there about how Feng Shui works.
The first thing Feng Shui ISN’T is MAGIC.
Feng Shui success stories — attracting a healthy new relationship into your life, or landing that client you’ve been hoping to do business with — don’t happen because I visited your space and waved my magic wand!
Instead the energy shifted because I’ve helped you identify your intentions and clarify your goals. Together we’ve identified and removed energy blockages, transforming negative Chi in your environment and activating positive new energy in your life.
In other words, you’ve done the work. Let’s face it, it’s hard work to get clarity and even harder to invite change into your life when the end result is not absolutely clear.
So when positive change occurs, it may feel like magic, but there’s been nothing magic about it ;).
What else is Feng Shui NOT? More to come in the weeks ahead!
