Laura Cerrano Feng Shui Specialist in New York City
Several weeks ago, I was contacted by a couple who is moving to Franklin TN. This couple has a long list of must haves for their new home. That is pretty typical. However, at some point buyers usually realize they aren't going to get everything they want. When they do, I have them choose the items of greatest importance and we focus our home search on that prioritized criteria.
The first day out with this couple revealed they practice Feng Shui. I was completely at a loss. I have never actually been approached by a couple practicing this lifestyle. That's right, Feng Shui is considered a lifestyle.
One of the very best things ActiveRain provides for us is a plethora of experts in a wide variety of areas, including Feng Shui. I contacted Laura Cerrano, Feng Shui Specialist in New York City, to get a handle on how I can better serve these clients.
The World English Dictionary defines Feng Shui as:
the Chinese art of determining the most propitious design and placement of a building, room, grave, etc., so that the maximum harmony is achieved between the flow of chi of the environment and that of the user, believed to bring prosperity and good fortune
To those of us who aren't proficient in the art of Feng Shui, this simply means that practitioners want to read the energy present and then manifest that energy into a reality, thereby bringing them good fortune.
For example, one of the homes we visited was placed at a T-juncture. The positioning of this house would allow fast-moving energy to flow towards the home which would disrupt the balance of energy. However, Laura suggested there are ways to deflect this fast-moving energy. The key to doing so requires the buyer of the home and the person making the remedy to believe that the remedy will, in fact, work.
Laura gave a wonderful example of how Donald Trump hired Feng Shui Master Pun-Yin to find a remedy for the fast-flowing energy created by the busy street in front of Trump Towers in New York City. She positioned a globe in front of the Towers to deflect this fast-flowing energy. Pun-Yin believed this deflection of fast-flowing energy would bring Trump prosperity and fortune. Obviously, Trump is experiencing positive chi.
I was so fascinated by Laura Cerrano's knowledge of this subject matter. She has fine-tuned her business to meet the growing demand for buyers and sellers who want to practice the lifestyle of Feng Shui. There is no better place to do that than New York City.
I will have to admit I was feeling a little frustrated with these clients and thought they might Feng Shui themselves out of a lovely home. However, Laura offered up some wonderful suggestions that will assist me in finding the right home for this family.
