In recent years there has been a surge of interest in Feng Shui. What is it and how can you get it you may ask. Well, I am in no way an expert in this area, but I asked my friend Carole Gedelman who is a Certified Feng Shui expert to give me the low down.

I for one have seen the wonders that can happen in your life from Feng Shui. Not only that, Carole is excellent in what she does and has even helped a friend of ours to find true love and get married because of the job that Carole preformed in her house! Now if that is not a reason to find out more then I don’t know what is. But I will let Carole take it from here…


Introduction to Feng Shui by Carole Gedelman

So let’s get down to basics. What is this Feng Shui? I can’t even say it.To help you out of this delimma lets look at how you say Feng Shui. The way to pronounce it is “Fung Shway”. This translates into Wind and Water (what is seen and unseen; as within, without).

History of Feng Shui

The Chinese have been studying the system of environmental placemet 3000+ years. Westerners, by comparison, have only been applying the principles in recent years.


What is Feng Shui?

The underlying principle of feng shui is to live in harmony with your environment so that the energy (chi) surrounding you supports you rather than working against you. Energy affects every aspect of life including Relationships, Health, Wealth and Happiness.

What Feng Shui Is Not

It is not a religion. It is based on quantum physics. It is not a belief system. Asking someone if they believe in feng shui is like asking them if they believe in the weather.

Here are 7 “Clear the Way” Questions that can be found in The Western Guide to Feng Shui – Room by Room, pg.21

  1. Do I love it?
  2. Do I need it?
  3. Does it support who I am now?
  4. Does it act as an environmental affirmation for me?
  5. What positive or negative thoughts, memories, or emotions do I associate with it?
  6. Does it need to be fixed or repaired, and am I willing to do so now?
  7. If it’s time to let it go, am I going to sell, donate, or throw it away – and, when?

I hope this gives you some insight in to Feng Shui.
