My consulting work and lectures are based upon the BTB School of Feng shui, which stands for Black-Sect Tantric Buddhist Feng shui and was developed by Grand Master, Lin Yun. The majority of Feng shui consultants in the states practice the BTB school of Feng shui, which is often generally referred to as Western Feng Shui. BTB relies heavily upon the intentional aspects of living and the way we deal with our physical spaces (forms). This approach to Feng shui is opposed to the Compass School, which relies heavily upon directional calculations, personal best directions, lucky numbers, time periods, etc. BTB consultants will occasionally borrow ideas from the Compass School.
Feng shui is the science of observation and common sense. I utilize Feng shui and teach Feng shui from a practical point of view instead of bombarding the client with overly detailed energy explanations and calculations. It is my mission to make Feng shui understandable and to insure that the applications of Feng shui to your life circumstances are real and practical for you. We are affected by the energy of our environments on a daily basis. These environments are the home, the property around the home and our work spaces. When energy is balanced in our environments it follows that our lives will also be more balanced. This is the essence of Feng shui.
We can live in an unbalanced environment for an hour, a day, or perhaps even a week and maintain our inner balance. But if we live or work there day after day, month after month, it begins to wear away at us like water dripping on a stone.
~ Terah Kathryn Collins
Some issues that can put a space and our lives out of balance are florescent lighting, too much furniture in a room, the size of the furniture being too large or too small, doors that face each other, inadequate lighting (natural or artificial), odd angled room dimensions, a tree that is in line with your front door, too much use of Yin (dark) colors in the home, broken items that are waiting to be repaired, a beam that is directly overhead of your desk, incorrect bed placement and so much more. All of these things affect us deeply by triggering our nervous system. If we can identify these energy issues, and take the proper course to correct these issues we can take control of our living environments and live as optimally as possible. Feng shui then can be viewed as a kind of acupuncture for the home, home property and business space. Feng shui is one of the finer things in life that will truly enhance one’s quality of living. It is my passion to share this knowledge with you.
A official Feng shui consultation will include the exterior and interior of your home. I will assess the following:
