I have read many books in the past on Feng Shui and Vaatsu in desperate attempts to create balance when our options were limited and have to say I gave up on it a decade ago. Home buying terrifies me after our one and only home purchase turned into a 15 year nightmare of which we only lived in the house 3 years of so I decided to once again look at ways to try and make sure we purchased a comfortable home.
This book was completely different. She doesn't focus on placing fountains and knick knacks all over the place to bring good luck which I appreciated immediately because I cannot stand to much clutter. Her approach is about flow and comfort. There is no hanging crystals because the front door faces the wrong direction or crazy math formulas to find out my bedroom needs to be in the south west corner because lets face it when buying a home not everything can be in the perfect location and direction for my personal horoscope (yes I have read books like that).
She explains very clearly about balancing yin and yang in a way that is not only easy to understand but easy to achieve. She dispels a lot of superstitions and myths and gives more rational explanations as to why you should avoid something's and how to change things in inexpensive ways. I wish she had more books on the market than just this one because I would read them all.
It offers the perfect combination of a common sense approach to what intuitively feels right in your home, and the actual technical art of figuring out how to enhance it, using the compass energy points as they relate to your particular surroundings. These are explained fully but simply, in a way that makes it possible and exciting to make your own blueprint feng shui chart for your home.
I especially like the way the author has taken the time to research, explore and explode some of the crazy myths around feng shui, things that some books would have you adopting out of superstition, making all sorts of changes that you don't actually like out of fear that ill will befall you if you don't. This book gets to the heart of fact vs. fiction in feng shui. And that can only be a good thing. I like the conversational style and the use of examples from her own years of practice.
Ultimately, the author's message is that if it feels good, then it's likely to be good feng shui. But at the same time she doesn't let you off the hook for living in a mess with clutter all around you! She gets you excited about making changes and very grateful that you did. Of all the books I've been studying on the subject, this is the best to get you started and fired up. If you only ever get one feng shui guide, this is the one that will give you all you need, in easy-to-follow, companionable language. It's like a chat over coffee with a warm friend whose advice you've come to value because you know that she knows what she's talking about and has your best interests at heart.
Check out her website and sign up for her newsletter, too, with great resources for finding feng shui items. She also runs workshops. She sounds like she has a big heart, which is a good place to start if you're advising anyone on significant life changes.
Happy feng shui'ing!
