Known as the Chinese art of placement, Feng Shui is a 3,000 year old Asian science based on the premise that our physical surroundings significantly affect our lives. To that end, by manipulating our surroundings, and the energy flow (ch'i) within our surroundings, we can dramatically improve our lives and more readily attain our goals.
Feng Shui can be applied to many things in life, on both a personal level and in our surroundings: such as home offices; work-places; individual rooms; homes and landscaping. Its application is successfully used in real estate home staging, especially when applied to homes that are not attracting buyers and are difficult to sell.
Feng Shui can be used to:
- find patterns in your surroundings that may be influencing your life at home or office.
- use the Bagua Map to map a room or location and see how the different sections correspond to different aspects in one's life.
- adjust chi for harmonious flow of energy.
- suggest the arrangement of the five elements to improve balance.

What exactly is Feng Shui?
~ Feng Shui is the art and science of placement for homes, offices, interiors and exteriors. It works with energy in a space, much like quantum physics deals with spatial relationships of atoms and molecules. It originated in China over 5,000 years ago and has been modified and Westernized through the years.
The Five Elements (wood • fire • earth • metal • water):
How would I benefit from a consultation?
~ I always consider the Chinese astrology of my client and what their strengths and weaknesses are and then consider the relationship of their space to their chart. I use the Feng Shui principles to do this. This consultation may "unblock" the feel of a home or office and I advise what improvements can be implemented for significant positive change.
How long will it take?
~ For a home around 2,500 sq. ft. and larger I allow at least 2 to 3 hours. I charge a two hour minimum for all my consultations due to all the pre-work involved.
What does Feng Shui have to do with Real Estate, Staging and Color Consulting?
~All spaces are connected in some way and cause a positive or negative flow of energy. We all have a distinct Chinese chart based on our individual animal signs and elements. My consultation serves to explain the relationship of colors, natural elements, and space and how they work with your chart. There are optimal real estate properties and problematic properties. Colors and clutter clearing help to "clear" some spaces using Feng Shui principles. Consy’s Feng Shui Tips.
