FENG SHUI FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The following is excerpted from the book:
Taking the Sacred Path Home, Applying the Ancient Wisdom of Feng Shui
by Kathleen Thurston
How does Feng Shui work? Or is it just superstition?
I am continually witnessing the powerful transformations that clients
experience from applying the feng shui cures. How does this work? The process
helps us to clarify our intention for our space. For example, if we want to
attract a partner into our life, we would strengthen that intention by placing
certain objects and symbols in the partnership area of the home, such as two
warm colored candles , a beautiful image of lovers ,or a love poem in that
area. We are surrounded by those objects and symbols that are giving us daily
reminders of that which we want to manifest, making it easier to attract to us
. (of course, if it is in the highest good for all concerned).
What is the Bagua?
The Bagua is an octagonal map or diagram
with eight sections, each pertaining to a life area such as family, wealth,
fame marriage, children, benefactors, career, and knowledge. This diagram is
superimposed over the general floorplan of the space, or over the property, or
can be applied to individual rooms.

What qualities shall I look for in a Feng Shui consultant?
A good consultant requires a highly developed intuition and keen sensitivity to subtle energy. Spiritual cultivation is necessary as well as a
good sense of design, good taste, sensitivity to aesthetics, combining vision with practicality.
Presently there are many weekend feng
shui trainings offered. Taking a few of these does not constitute a
qualified consultant. Be sure to inquire about the extent of their Feng Shui training.
