There is a lot of content out there on Feng Shui and much of it can sound contradictory, so it can leave people feeling confused and unsure of the efficiency of Feng Shui. Overall, there is a lot of advice on how to arrange furniture, where to put or not to put certain elements and why. However, all of this should be taken with a grain of salt.
While there are some rules that are generally beneficial and these applications can potentially bring some improvements to one’s life, it is crucial to understand that Feng Shui is not a one size fits all practice.
Feng Shui works in a deeply personalized way, where a practitioner analyses the energy of the property based on its unique parameters, conditions, and its surroundings. The job of the practitioner is to balance the energies in a way that supports the occupants’ life.
Good Feng Shui is When Your Home Supports Your Growth
When conducting an assessment, a good Feng Shui consultant will calculate and combine the Compass School Reading of that home with Flying Star technique, which is the most comprehensive Feng Shui method. These techniques determine all the energies within the house, how they interact and how they affect the occupants.
Information such as the year the property was built and the renovations that took place since, are crucial to conduct this assessment. The Flying Star technique is based on the universal language, mathematics, and it is the oldest and most significant Feng Shui method to determine dominant energies within the property. For instance, If the occupants of the assessed property were experiencing significant changes in health, finances, or relationships since moving into this property, the Feng Shui analysis will give us answers to understand where those blockages in energies are coming from and how to address them.
Upon detecting the dominant energies in your home, the consultant will determine the positive energies from negative ones, as well as those that are more important to address. Bedrooms and the entry are some of the areas where harmonizing energies brings the most benefit. Bedrooms are particularly important, as this is where we spend a lot of time in our most vulnerable state. Furthermore being exposed to negative energies while sleeping has a greater impact.
On the other hand, energies that occupy areas we do not spend much time in, such as wet rooms, have very little impact on us. Having auspicious or favourable energies present in the most important living areas of our homes, will give a positive boost to everything we do and support our health and prosperity. Feng Shui consultants will activate and enhance these energies to make the most of them.
Likewise, inauspicious, or unfavourable energies, i.e., those that do not support our growth, interfere with our health, finances, or relationships, and can make certain areas of our life more challenging and less fruitful no matter the efforts. Feng Shui consultants will address them by making them dormant, or if possible, suggest changes in living arrangements so that occupants spend less time in these areas.
Reasons to Invite a Feng Shui Consultant
Most common reasons why people ask for Feng Shui assessments are to increase overall prosperity, wealth, and happiness, to improve the relationships amongst family members, increase the prospects for new relationships to improve children’s focus and growth.

Also, a great strategy that is proven very successful is to seek for Feng Shui guidance before starting the extensions or renovations to the house, or when deciding the layout on the new block of land. These methods make everything smoother in the long run, because it allows you to set out your property to support your ability to make money and create a healthy environment from the start. In this case, based on the Compass and Flying Star readings, your Feng Shui consultant will advise you on what will be the most auspicious layout and orientation on your block of land.
Whatever reason you have for seeking help from a Feng Shui consultant, it will always bring valuable insights and solutions to your households and infuse a fresh new energy to support you in your life.
