A month ago, my husband and I hit a bump in the road: Business projects were stalling out, money was running low, and stress was running high.
Forgetting much of what we knew about feng shui and the law of attraction, we scrambled to increase our productivity. We created new business plans, started waking up earlier to put more time into our careers, and began having daily business meetings to make sure we were taking care of everything on our ‘to do’ lists.
Still, very little was changing.
I am embarrassed to say, I had not looked closely at the feng shui of our home and offices in a while. I just assumed it was all still in place. I didn’t take into consideration that my husband and I had both rearranged our offices in the past three months, and I never re-did the feng shui of our spaces.
As I pulled out my Lo Pan compass and began reviewing the feng shui of our spaces, some interesting things revealed themselves. Possibly these can be helpful for you as well.
1. Our home needed water near the front door to increase wealth. Water near the front door is a basic recommendation for many homes. (Sometimes a personalized feng shui consultation does reveal that some homes need a different remedy, such as fire, or metal, to enhance wealth and health).
I pulled a fountain out of storage, and the moment I plugged it in near the front door, my husband called to let me know that he had just landed a new deal!
2. In my office, I had moved my desk so that I was sitting in one of my best directions for success at work (the feng shui consultation will tell you exactly what your best directions are, based on your birthday). However, this placed me at a funny angle in the room, and I felt quite vulnerable, as if I was sitting out in the middle of the space.
As I rethought my office feng shui, I realized that I often tell clients if it doesn’t feel good, it is not good feng shui, no matter how “correct” it is. I moved my desk into the classic feng shui “power position” sitting in the far corner from the front door, facing towards the front door. I immediately felt more empowered and in control of my success. I received a call within 30 minutes for a large new hotel client.
3. In my husband’s office, he had moved his desk to a new part of the room and needed specific feng shui remedies based on the advanced feng shui calculations I did for him. This is based on the exact compass orientation of his office, and the calendar year we are in. For him, the elements Fire and Earth were needed near his desk. We placed a small candle and some crystals around his computer screens.
Within four days of correcting the feng shui of his office space with the needed remedies, he received a sudden, and rather unexpected financial windfall.
While I am chagrined to admit that I had gotten somewhat sloppy with my own feng shui, I am also grateful for the reminder that feng shui works so powerfully and quickly.
Remember, it’s important not to let a space lapse for too long. Great opportunities may be waiting for you just around the corner, and the right feng shui remedies could make all the difference in bringing them your way quickly.
All the best for a harmonious fall,

The Feng Shui of Current Events is an occasional series which looks at the news headlines through the lens of feng shui. I think you may find it a fascinating insight into some of the hidden forces behind current events.
