then they shape us”

Feng Shui is not magic. Feng Shui is not mystical. The two words Feng – and Shui – simply mean Wind and Water, describing what is in fact the oldest science, dating back to the First Emperor of Imperial China, that allows us to study the environment we live in and how we best position ourselves therein in order to thrive within our bodies and the space we inhabit between heaven and earth.
Feng Shui – originally known as “Kan Yu” (the art of observation of the forces between Heaven and Earth), is part of a holistic system that is over 2000 years old and designed to ultimately improve the quality of our life. The term ‘Feng Shui’ was used only officially towards the end of the Qing Dynasty. Over the centuries, the science of Feng Shui has evolved to align itself with the evolution of time, to what is known today as Classical Feng Shui.
Chue Style Feng Shui is the purist form of Classical Feng Shui, with a documented lineage that dates back almost 3000 years. Deana Wyland-Fries is a certified Chue Style Consultant and teacher, with a host of international clients – both individual and corporate.
Following a pre-consultation assessment via phone or Skype and a preliminary look at your floor plans and birth dates, a residential consultation includes a thorough analysis of your home’s Feng Shui that can take 2-5 hours depending on the size of the property and the issues to be addressed.
This consultation includes an assessment of the quality of energy the property holds, and where applicable includes on the spot recommendations for the client to, enhance and balance the Feng Shui of the property to support the family in their current and future endeavors. A full report is provided where needed.
Factors like the environment (surrounding forms and structure), the building design, directional influences, residents’ BaZi charts and time aspects are taken into consideration for the audit. If so desired, the audit can likewise focus on specific areas that you feel need attention; for example, family harmony, and health or career prospects. The property’s Feng Shui settings are recommended to support the destiny or life path of the client.
It is a good idea to audit a property you wish to purchase, to find out whether the energy of the property is beneficial to you before you sign on the dotted line!
A pre-purchase assessment will ascertain the quality of Chi (energy) affecting a given property throughout a period of time and its effect on the residents. Armed with prior knowledge from what the house’s Feng Shui has in store for you, especially in with regard to career, health, family harmony and academic success, you will be better equipped to make the final decision of whether or not to purchase the property.
Every house has its own story and energy that change over time. Some houses have strong Feng Shui, some have less than ideal Feng Shui. In addition, one tends to gravitate towards a certain type of house for a reason. With a pre-purchase assessment, you will quickly discover if the property you have set your heart on is indeed the one you need to secure your family’s goals, health and future aspirations.
Undeniably, the ideal point for a Feng Shui assessment for a property is BEFORE it is built. If you are thinking of constructing a new home, it would be ideal to incorporate Feng Shui from it’s initial stage. This could well be the most important investment you make before building.
A pre-purchase land assessment will help you to determine whether the land is well suited for you. We will provide recommendations on the placement of important components, such as your main door, kitchen, master bedroom, living room, home office, bathrooms, etc. You will likewise receive recommendations based on both the property and your personal BaZi on when to begin building and where. Deana is happy to guide you through the process of building your new home from a Feng Shui perspective, if you so wish…
Every business is unique. As such, different types of businesses require different types of energy. Just as in the case of your home, if the Feng Shui of your place of work is ‘out of alignment’ your business will be affected. The placement of the door and how it opens, flow of traffic, placement of the cash register and management offices all need to be correctly positioned to ensure the Feng Shui supports the goals of the business.
Placement of your management team and other key staff members in an office is of utmost importance in corporate Feng Shui. The energy that key members absorb in their office will have a direct effect on the success of a business.
Energy changes with time and affects each business differently. It is therefore vitally important for businesses to keep abreast of the energetic changes from year to year, benefitting from the good and being prepared for the less favorable years. In short, Corporate Feng Shui must be tailored to suit and support the individual mission of each company. For the past 15 years, Deana has assisted companies all over the globe, helping them to maximize their potential. Contact today and discover what Feng Shui can do for you…
