Feng Shui Myth

Myth:  Place statues of three-legged toads on the floor inside your house, facing into the room as you enter.

Reality:  More than 70% of Feng Shui is generated by the landforms around your home or office.  A small toad statue, or any statue for that matter, will not compensate for a hill or lake that is connecting to your home improperly!

Things to Think about when hiring a Feng Shui Expert!
The first thing to be concerned about is hiring someone who resonates with you.  Are you comfortable with them?  Turning your home into a Chinese restaurant is not true Feng Shui: hanging crystals, reflective mirrors and chimes in every corner and placing statues, painting the door red along with Fu Dog statues is not considered authentic Feng Shui .

Not every problem can be fixed with a Feng Shui consultation so be sure to find someone who will  be honest with you and not attempt band-aide cures. Be realistic about your Feng Shui goals. If you are not willing to make some of the changes that are suggested, please don’t believe that just because a consultant worked with you, they sprinkled magic powder everywhere that will instantly change your life!  You are responsible for making the changes. Real results come from a client’s hard work.  A good consultant will suggest where that work should be focused.
Talk on the phone, don’t just pick based on price.
You get what you pay for – cheapest is not the best.

Share your expectations to see what services they offer.

How long have you been practicing?
What type of Feng Shui did you study and do you apply?
What degrees and certifications do you have and from where?

*Note to ask what other services they offer because if you get someone who also does space cleansing or BaZi you get more bang for your Feng Shui buck.
