This ancient art form of organizing the physical objects that surround you to better suit the needs of your life is a rapidly growing practice in the United States.
Realtor and author Shawne Mitchell’s new book,‘” Exploring Feng Shui, Ancient Secrets and Modern Insight for Love, Joy and Abundance,” is Feng Shui 101 for people who want to learn what they can do to enhance their environment and their lives.
“I had not heard of Feng Shui when I was in fact Feng Shuiing homes. As a Realtor, having been in zillions of houses, I could always sense the energy in houses, and say what it is that makes it feel good, or not feel good,” said Mitchell. It was years later that Mitchell discovered Feng Shui through a friend and began to study the subject.
“Fxploring Feng Shui” is an easy-to-follow, helpful hand-book that outlines the fundamental principals of Feng Shui, cites examples of common problems, and also includes personal stories of how Feng Shui has affected the lives of some of Mitchell’s clients.
Feng Shui is based on the idea that there is an ultimate universal energy, or “chi,” that flows through all things. If one thing in the universe changes, then as a result, everything connected to it also changes. Hence, chi is alive and is constantly changing its paths and patterns. Feng Shui is the practice of arranging physical objects to most beneficially circulate this natural, universal energy.
Mitchell says that the results of following Feng Shui can be dramatic. Throughout her book, she gives examples of people who have changed their lives through changing their homes . For example, one of Mitchell’s clients was a widow and was looking for companionship. She found it — just six weeks after she replaced a painting in her bedroom of a lone woman in a garden with a more romantic image. “Every night the last thing she saw before she went to bed and the first thing she saw every day was this woman alone in the garden. She needed to change that.” said Mitchell.
Within her profession. Mitchell says that Feng Shui has been incredibly helpful in both buying and selling homes, and she thinks that more Realtors are starting to take notice of it. Mitchell also believes that houses should be built with Feng Shui in mind from the start.
“I think builders are finally waking up to it, they need to be designing good houses. It is frustrating because I don’t see enough good houses for my buyers that are Feng Shui auspicious,” commented Mitchell.
Mitchell would like to see more Feng Shui in real estate. Recently she met a woman in Seattle who has started teaching a class on Feng Shui for Realtors. “1 was amazed.
Feng Shui is really not common in real estate at all. and it was good to meet someone that is trying to expand the field,” said Mitchell.
