Feng Shui in New York: Sherie's Story
Feng Shui in Huntington New York-This is a sad story. If you're looking for a "pick me up" you might want to move along to another post .There are also lessons here for ALL of us.
Last year Laura Cerrano and I did a Feng Shui Consultation in beautiful Huntington Long Island in New York. I didn't write about my clients at the time, their story was personal. I did write about the beautiful area of Huntington: Feng Shui in Huntington Long Island-- New York
Sherie had contacted me for a Feng Shui Consultation. She was having health issues, she told me, and wanted to see if there were any blockages in her home. I am often contacted for Feng Shui Consultations regarding health and, in almost ALL cases, you can "see" what might be blockages-what might need to be changed to open up an area and allow the energy to flow.
Sometimes we see a lack of Elements. We believe in The Five Element theory and address that as well. Sherie is a young mother with two beautiful pre-school children and a wonderful husband that is truly her soul mate. I remember her saying they "finished each other's sentences."
I also remember her telling me that until a month or two prior, she was living the "perfect life." She told us as we sat down to address her issues that she had been recently diagnosed with cancer. Back and shoulder pain that she thought would go away eventually drove her to see her physician.
It's "Mother Stress" she was told. She was told that again on a follow up visit-and again, when she was STILL having pain. She wasn't sent for any tests although a five minute non invasive CT Scan would have showed her cancer.
Until she finally insisted, it seemed no one listened to her. I've had this happen to me more often then I can say and I know what she felt like getting ‘brushed off' by the very people who should be LISTENING to you.
She was the picture of health at the time. Laura and I are especially careful with ANYTHING in an environment that can potentially cause health issues. In Sherie's home, we could find nothing. Not a thing-- which is very unusual. Her home was open, warm and inviting and there was proper placement of ALL the Elements.
We made several suggestions, did clearings inside and out and hugged her goodbye. Driving home that day, Laura and I were both quiet. Finally she voiced exactly what I had been thinking---Is it possible the Doctors are WRONG? How I wish they were.
Days, weeks and finally months passed and I was so reluctant to call-I was afraid I would seem intrusive. The energy and my thoughts of her became so intense I finally forced myself to pick up the phone.
Sherie has been through more treatments then most of us could imagine. She has lung cancer, bone cancer and it has metastasized to her brain. She was happy to hear from me and it broke my heart to hear this news. Yet she stays positive, despite the pain which at times is agonizing. She is truly a beautiful soul.
She made me aware of a group on Facebook (which I had just joined I Got the Surprise of my Life! -there are NO coincidencesand I wanted to share it with you for prayers for Sherie and her family while they go through this terrible time.
I believe in Energy Intensified. And I believe in the power of prayer-no matter who or what you believe in. Those good thoughts and blessing ALL help; I have seen miracles in the past and hope for another one.
If you'd like to join, the group on Facebook is called "Team Sherie." You can read about her story, leave a comment or check her progress there. I hope to go back to visit her when she is up to having a short visit; not as a Feng Shui Consultant but as a FRIEND. "Client" is only a word we start off with in SO many businesses-we end up with friends that we truly care about.
Blessings to you, Sherie and to your family as you follow your difficult journey. We ARE with you.
