Posted by on Nov 11, 2013 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Create the Environment that Creates You

Our environment creates us from the outside in. After you stay in an environment for a period of time you adopt its qualities for better and for worse. When I work with clients I assess where they are in their personal and professional lives right now. Their environment tells...

Posted by on Jul 9, 2013 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Feng Shui, Urban Planning and Architecture in Singapore and Hong Kong

I recently returned from a trip to Singapore and Hong Kong, two countries where feng shui is used everywhere at every scale. Singapore has used feng shui for many of its urban planning decisions for decades, using water, buildings, roads and civic structures to allow it to receive and hold the best energy it can, and to make the most of it’s energy over changing times. In the process it has transformed itself from a tiny, dry land into one of the most successful countries in the world despite its’ small size of 700 square kilometers. This...

Today is the first blank page of a 365 page book.

Misconception 1: Feng Shui is Interior Design. Truth: In Feng Shui the exterior of a property is much more important than the interior. The positions of roads, landscape features such as water and mountains, how the land slopes or does not slope around the building(s), and the effects of neighbouring buildings determine the quality and quantity of the energy that gets to the property. Feng Shui is about energy and there is much more energy to evaluate and harness outside than inside.   Misconception 2: Feng Shui involves placing crystals,...
