With all its power to transform, heal and change, feng shui also has the power to confuse and even frustrate, no doubt about that! I receive so many emails full of the energy of confusion, urgency or endless expectations as to how feng shui should work.

Before delving into feng shui, it might be helpful to understand that no matter how it is presented today, the truth is that feng shui is a deeply mysterious and of course, ancient body of knowledge, so to reduce its complexity to "move your chair, change your life" is just not intelligent.

As an ancient art and science, feng shui also has many, many subtle layers, each with its own nuances, textures, and guidelines, so people that benefit the most from applying feng shui are the ones that apply it in an intelligent way, with a discerning eye, a bit of pragmatism combined with a lot of curiosity, patience, and respect.

I highly encourage you to explore feng shui because the potential it has to help you transform your life is enormous.

Our site has numerous resources to help you do just that - from understanding the feng shui basics to delving into the more sophisticated info on the annual feng shui updates, for example, the house period or the natal chart of a house.
