Nature loves curves

I was out walking on Saturday and the lovely windy path I was on made me want to do this post.
You will notice nature loves curves and theres not many straight lines. We want to be as close to nature as possible as we are all part of the same energy. If we can replicate nature in our surroundings at home we can feel that sense of calm all around us.

 

Whoever designed the curvy path I was on understood this. So let’s talk about outside in this post and inside in the next post.

 

Take a look at the photos. Can you notice how different the windy path feels compared to the straight path built for the water?
Take a look at the roads. Can you notice how different you feel with the soft winding road compared to the straight road or the road with the sharp bend?
We feel better when the qi meanders as thats nature in balance. It’s dangerous for qi to whip fast around a corner (never live on the outside of a busy corner), or when qi rushes straight at us or from us such as a straight road. People fall asleep on straight roads, giving even more danger.

 

If you have a house at the end of a long straight road or if there is a small gap between buildings with the gap headed straight to your building, or if theres a corner of a building pointed towards your building with nothing stopping the qi from rushing along the wall and then straight to you we call this sha qi. Its not beneficial simply because the energy is too fast. We want to slow down the energy by introducing gentle curves and interesting things to look at. Add nature to what man has built – bring back the balance.

If you have a straight path or garden edge in your garden you can soften the edges by planting cascading plants or shrubs next to it to slightly cover the edges make the qi slow right down. Make your garden paths and edges and the path to your door curvy.
Add plants or even round pots if you cant actually plant a plant.
If you live opposite a long straight road or a building as mentioned plant some trees, shrubs, to protect your home from the impact especially if it’s coming directly to your door but do this in a natural way.

Recently when looking at a possible home for clients it was clear this is what the previous people had done but they did it wrong.
Firstly I assume they thought they were protecting themselves from a road that belonged to a quiet court – this is not sha qi its a short road – this is probably beneficial qi now being blocked.
They planted an ugly clump of ugly tall grass that did not blend with the surroundings and they made their post box ugly with a weird build around it to protect themselves from their perceived problem.

In fact they made the site ugly- thats not going to slow down the qi and harness the beautiful qi into the home. So when you do this do it slowly with love not haste and fear.

Think of how it feels when you take a walk in nature. Nothing hurries but its all done.

Curves are celebrated.

Nothing is designed and planted in a certain place yet it/s perfect.

Channel nature to your outside surroundings

My Journey to Feng Shui Master

Its 3 years now since I left my part time job to go full time in my business so I wanted to say THANKYOU to you all for supporting me. 
 
Every year my little business grows between 35 – 54% all thanks to you.
 
I was reflecting on my journey so I thought I would share if you are interested. Warning its a long story so leave now if you like 😀.
 
It was around 1994 that classical feng shui came into my life. Our youngest son was unwell for ages and noone could figure out why. I went to the Doctor, paediatrician, naturopath, homoeopath, kinesiologist, you name it I was there desperate for help. We were living in Zimbabwe at that time.
Then someone told me about a visiting classical feng shui Consultant. 
 
Of course I got her in and she told me the main problem was the unseen energy in his bedroom. I did what she said and moved him in with us where he flourished. I thought it was a coincidence and put him back, but he went down hill again. This happened a couple more times enough to convince me. (Yes Im guilty of experimenting on my children – sorry).
 
I went on a huge journey over the next few years of studying every book I could find on feng shui as there were no courses. Unfortunately I did not know there is the real traditional classical feng shui and the watered down western versions – I just studied and restudied every book. With my book knowledge I feng shuid our and other homes and any place that would let me experiment. I had weird results! I just had to test this.
In 1999 we moved to Australia and were living in SE Qld. A lady came into our shop. In conversation she told me she was a classical feng shui Consultant. At that moment I recalled the previous consultant was CLASSICAL – so what was the difference between a classical feng shui Consultant and feng shui?
 
This lovely lady, appropriately called Joy, explained that classical was the old traditional method that had been around for thousands of years and modern/western feng shui only since 1970!
 
I was hooked and got her to do our house and business but she was to teach me along the way, I went to everything she offered and paid for her to share everything and anything with me. We lived in a small town and there were no courses so she was my only source of the real deal. I got her to go through my study books and throw away anything that wasn’t based on the traditional system.
 
It explained my crazy results! I learnt a great deal from her and continued to study only the classical authors. In 2006 we moved to Townsville and she would not come up here to feng shui our home and business. There were no classical feng shui Consultants up north. I was on my own again.
People used to call me the feng shui lady so I continued on my studies of the classical system and helped anyone I could. In 2010 a friend whom I had helped many years before called me with a feng shui question. 
 
Originally when I had helped her house the internet was not around this time she had googled and found mixed results so phoned me. I thought I would google the answer too to see what was out there – oh dear! So many contrasting and confusing results. Some based on the watered down western system, some bits of classical information but not the whole story etc etc. It made me mad enough to decide to study properly and get qualified! I thought how hard can it be? Ive got 16 years of info, I know the difference between the classical and diluted. Surely one year of study? Hahahaha
 
So started my real journey. In 2010 I decided to pretend I didn’t know anything and started from scratch learning from classical Masters and courses.
I soon learnt this wasnt going to be 1 to 5 more years of study under my Masters in fact its a life time commitment. We sold our restaurant in 2012 and I decided to start my business properly. It had been done in part time hours before not part time days. I had to work full time so it was feng shui on the weekends, then I reduced my work hours to 4 days and 3 days with feng shui taking up the rest of the week and one day off. I did the craziest jobs just so I could still do my feng shui. I now was under a few Chinese Masters and Grandmasters.
 
In 2017 my 3 day job moved to 4 days. Then they wanted me to go full time. My soul was crying. My feng shui client waiting list was getting longer and longer so I resigned to do my feng shui and chinese astrology full time.
 
Ive never looked back. 2019 I became a Classical Feng Shui Master but I only know what I know and will be studying the rest of my life. 
 
I thank and honour all my clients without you this would not be possible. I am forever grateful and in awe of my Masters, I am always going to be their student.
 
Thank you for reading this to the end .
 
Thank you to you for your support.
