I know it has been a while since I posted anything on my blog but life has been really busy. I have been busy learning Feng Shui and applying it in my house and helping others with tips and remedies for their problems. I have started my own Feng Shui Consultation business and am loving every minute of it. Today I would like to share my journey of Feng Shui with all of you.
Let me start from the beginning. I have been reading Feng Shui for over 15 years now. It all started in my home town, Chandigarh, India. My mum was the one who introduced me to Feng Shui. She came across some Feng Shui tips in the local paper and showed it to me. We found the tips very interesting. We used to look forward to the morning newspaper so that we could learn more tips everyday. I decided to go and look for Feng Shui books. I was convinced that I would not be able to find any books as I had never heard of Feng Shui. I was pleasantly surprised when I found Feng Shui books in one of our favourite book store. Most of the books that were available on Feng Shui were written by Lillian Too. This was the start of my relationship with Lillian Too. I loved learning Feng Shui from Lillian’s books. It was an easy read and Lillian had a knack of engaging her reader and making the otherwise complex Chinese philosophy easy to understand. I felt i knew Lillian personally through her books. I must admit that after the first book I was hooked. I was on a quest to acquire all of Lillian’s books, which I am proud to say I did.
In the meantime, life kept moving. I got married, had a baby girl, moved to Australia and had my second child. In the midst of all this Feng Shui took a back seat. But once you know Feng Shui, it never leaves you. I was always mindful of the basic principles of Feng Shui and had incorporated it in my décor and day to day life.
I had always wanted to learn Feng Shui from Lillian Too. I had never really shared my thoughts with anyone but deep down in my heart I had this burning desire to meet Lillian. I was in awe of Lillian’s vast knowledge on Feng Shui. Last year I got lucky. I shared my desire to go and study from Lillian with my husband. He agreed on the condition that I go with someone. Well that was the easy part. I called up my sister and told her that ‘We’ were going to Kuala Lumpur to do a Feng Shui course. Thankfully she agreed and we attended Lillian Too’s Master Practitioners Course in Feng Shui (2014). This year I didn’t have to ask my sister to join me as she was all set to go back and learn more and ‘We’ have just completed the Master Consultants Course in Feng Shui (2015).
I feel my journey in Feng Shui has just begun. I have enjoyed dabbling in Feng Shui for a long time but now I understand it much more and have a deeper understanding of the hidden meanings and nuances. Feng Shui adds a whole new dimension to one’s life. There are a lot of people who don’t believe in Feng Shui. I respect their thoughts. It can be very hard to explain how Feng Shui works. There is nothing tangible about Feng Shui but it can have amazing results. The best part is that you don’t even have to believe in Feng Shui for it to work. It is a fascinating art and science. It can be very technical at times but at the same time it can be very simple and easy to apply. Feng Shui has layers upon layers but the best thing about Feng Shui is that it is very versatile. You can adapt it to suit your life style and your thinking.
I look forward to applying all the newly acquired knowledge in my home and that of my friends and clients, and to further improve my knowledge of Feng Shui.
Till next time.
