The nine guas or segments include wealth, health, partnership, reputation, career, helpful people/travel, family, children, and knowledge. Change something in the right way in a particular gua and you can improve that segment of your life. Do some of these elements need improvement in your life?
A Consultation's Timing
Feng Shui consultations usually take 2-3 hours of uninterrupted time in your home or office, and accommodate the schedules of both client and practitioner. Fees are determined at an hourly rate of $150/hour.
Before the Consultation:
We talk via the phone or email about your home or business, as well as your needs and desires for this consultation. We set up a mutually convenient time that you and I can meet at your space. You will need to send me a floor plan of your space. This might be an architect’s drawings, but more likely it’s a rough guestimation of your space. I like to know how the building is placed on the lot, the orientation to the street, where each room is placed, and placement of the front door (as well as the beds, the desk and stove within the home.) I sometimes make a second phone call to chat about any situation I see from the floor plan prior to our appointment.
You will need to prepare 9 red envelopes containing my fee for Chinese tradition, acknowledging that you are going to receive sacred and secret information from me. At least some money is needed in each of the 9 envelopes, and you will present these envelopes to me at the culmination of the consultation.
What Style Does Your Home Need to Be:
Feng shui works in any design style. If you love Asian fusion design style, great. But if you love traditional, transitional, modern, or any other style, it works just as effectively with these trends.
First, let me make a blanket statement: Every Feng Shui consultant is unique, as is every client, so every consultation is going to be different.
I will generally arrive a bit before the consultation to get a feel for the neighborhood, and to meditate so that my mind is free of any distractions. I’ll knock on your door at the prearranged time. You will often be asked to give me a tour of your whole space. You may choose to make an audio recording of the consultation so that you can listen to my explanations and suggestions again afterward the consultation. I ask that phone calls and other interruptions be eliminated during our time together.
We often sit down then, and I talk you through some of the basic precepts of the philosophy such as the Ba-gua and a bit of Feng Shui history to give you a basic understanding of the practice.
We then walk through your space, and I will identify the various areas of the Ba-gua. I chat about each of the guas, or sections of the space with you. I will make suggestions for cures (i.e.: remedies) for possible problems that I see as we travel through the space. Some cures require moving furniture or equipment. Some necessitate adding an object*, such as hanging a crystal, wind chime, or light (amongst other remedies.) Some cures call for repairing or replacing a broken item or system.
At the end of the session, we walk to the area of the space you would most like to see change. I then teach you the Three Secrets, a feng shui ritual that helps to insure that the cure(s) you’re implementing will have the maximum affect on your desired change. You give me your prepared 9 red envelopes as an acknowledgment of my sharing sacred information.
After the Consultation:
You can feel free to contact me for clarification on anything that I’ve said that’s unclear to you after the consultation. The sooner you implement cures (i.e.: remedies,) the more likely the desired change will occur. Some cures, such as crystals, mirrors, and wind chimes are available for purchase through me to facilitate your ease of installation. I will provide you with a written “report” to you within a week of the consult for an extra $100 fee. Now, you visualize the change, and wait for it occur. This sometimes happens immediately, and it sometimes happens over time.
Feng Shui Tune-Up:
Sometimes people ask me to return to give them a refresher on their home or office after the initial consultation, particularly when a major change such as family member or personnel move, a remodel, or updating has occurred. I’m happy to accommodate your needs, as the only thing in life that’s constant is change, which can affect the Feng Shui.
