I met Flora on the recommendation of her friend, Monica Pa. Flora saw the changes in Monica’s home and wanted me to do the same for her.
Flora’s goal for our Feng Shui consultation was to design a balanced and harmonious home. She was unhappy, having trouble focusing, and struggling with her mate—with whom she had to decide if she wanted to stay in New York or move to London.
The building where she lived was a converted shoe factory with exposed brick in the apartment. Her entryway was narrow and constricting, so I recommended a welcome mat or a round rug to encourage movement and energy.
In her office area in the living room, the windows were letting in lots of light; however, she wasn’t sitting where she could see the door. I suggested that she turn her desk around to face the living room (instead of facing the wall), so she could be in the command position. This positioning also helped her to be more focused, as she had mentioned she wasn’t able to focus on her work.
She was resistant to making the change at first, but on my next visit she said that she discovered she could work from her dining room table on her laptop. Her seat was in the command position, and she loved sitting there, looking into her living room, seeing her plants and the daylight from the windows. Not only did her concentration improve, but also she loved her apartment even more.
In the kitchen, her stove was also facing the wall, and also not in the command position. I suggested she put a backsplash or mirror behind the stove, so she could see the room behind her.
In the bedroom, I recommended she move her bed to the opposite wall due to high EMF frequencies from the closet that held the boiler/mechanical equipment. She had a wall that was decorated with a nice tranquil pattern that she could now view to give her a sense of expansion and openness. I also suggested a solid headboard connected to the bed frame (since it lacked one) in order to increase stability and feeling grounded and centered in life.
Flora eventually purchased a new bed. She sublets her apartment frequently, so I recommended having padding on her bed, so other people’s energies don’t get enmeshed there.
Here’s what she told me after she had completed some of my suggestions:
“Yes, I did move the bed, got a mirror for the living room, changed my light bulbs to a brighter one and got small crystals for the living room light. It does feel better in the bedroom. The mirror in the dining room really helps as well. I also put a tiny mirror on top of my stove for command position. Expansion is my motto.”
