I have a New, Very Important "Position" : I Just Became a Feng Shui Godmother!

Home Stager with Feng Shui Manhattan Long Island #888

Goodness, I don't even know if this is an "Official" Real Estate Post.....Some of the Realtors will have to fill me in and let me know.  Are there in fact openings for these types of things?

Some days the most usual habits bring the most unusual results....and boy, when that happens is it FUN.  Today of course is stumbling to turn on the coffee (because I never remember to set that wonderful feature that will have it all ready for me as soon as I wake up), let the dogs outside and quickly check my email.   Just for the really important things because goodness knows I can't process much before coffee.

I have on occasion bemoaned the fact that I would not ever likely to see any Grandchildren...as least from an "earthly" plane.  My own children are not at all ready to settle down and start families, nor should they be although, theoretically they ARE old enough at 23 and 25.  But I do hope it is many years in coming for them.

I have mentioned some wonderful clients from time to time who I have become particularly close to.  They have gone so far as to help me with my home and even though I had been there years ago, we have never lost touch and have always maintained contact.  In spite of difficulties they have gone through they are some of the most positive and wonderful people I will ever be fortunate enough to meet.

It was several months ago that I heard my client's daughter was "with child."  Earlier, perhaps then they may have liked but it happened just the same and they took it as they always take unexpected news---there are higher powers at work.  She is SO young to be a Grandmother and as she mentioned it I thought of how ready I was....

And it was agreed, right there, during our phone conversation.  Of course she could be a Grandmother but that would still leave an opening for a Feng Shui Grandma-or Feng Shui Godmother.  Quite an honor to bestow on me and quite a lot to live up to.  I was thrilled and of course thinking she was kidding.

So blurry eyed this morning as I checked my mail I saw the words "Congratulations, You have just become a Feng Shui Grandma."!  Or Feng Shui Godmother, apparently that role is open as well. To a "perfect" baby boy and inviting me out to see my very own grandchild.  I have to wonder if this holds a bit of Fairy Dust (don't laugh, all good Feng Shui Grandmothers/Godmothers carry these things) and I spent my day thinking about the absolute synchronicity of meeting people.  True, valued friends that you become attached to in so many ways it's almost as if you've known them forever.

I am taking my new role seriously and will give the family time before I descend on them....but I have to wonder if I will ever again stumble to my emails and see something that fills me with such JOY.  Congratulations to the entire family and bless you for allowing me a part in this!

Gary, Thank you....I'm not exactly sure of my new "role" either but I am going to try to help raise the baby with Positive Thoughts and Good Energy.

Candy, How nice of these people!  I would love to help to teach the baby a whole new way of looking at things....

Jo, I can't imagine how much fun that will be---I was able to teach Laura "The Secret" but only after she was in her teens, now I get to start right away :)

Joan, So am I....I can't wait to see this little child.  I am thrilled that these wonderful people thought of me in any way for a role in this baby's life.

Gayle, It would mean helping to bring the baby up right from the start with values of The Secret and positive energy....something that will always help this child through life.

Joan, I am sure they will ask me to help set up the nursery for the best Feng Shui....And am thrilled to do it.  I can't wait until I have pictures either but don't want to bomard the family.  I know them well and so does my daughter so I will wait until she can go as well. 

Carol, Thank you, they are thrilled!  These people have the absolute BEST energy and can always handle anything that comes their way, they are a joy to be around.

Teri, I'm sure going to give it my best---and will love every second of it.  It truly is an honor for me.

Nancy, What a sweet thing to say....I wish I were younger.  My kids are definitely old enough to have kids but they are so not ready and I thought my hopes were gone. 

Marzena, I love the picture you posted and I'm going to be absolutely thrilled to be a part of this baby's life....it's truly an honor for me.

Carole-Oh how could you even ask if this was an OK Post for Real Estate....Real Estate and Life is about people, relationships, and life and death.  You have them all in this one Post....sounds more than appropriate to me LOL :)    

Congratulations......I just love that....a Feng Shui Grandmother/or Godmother......you will have to let us know what role you end up with :)  And what a true testament to you that your client bestowed this Honor on you :)

Rosario, I am thrilled to be included in this new baby's life....and can't wait to see him, I will come home with pictures!

Kim, I'm just thrilled.  It certainly wasn't going to happen with my kids and I'm very honored by these wonderful people.

Chris, I think that is wonderful of them, I'm sure the baby could have done without a Feng Shui Grandmother....what a beautiful way to share the wealth :)

Bonnie, I've got one LONG wait for my kids...which is fine, neither one of them is ready, really....this is a thrill!

Kathy, That is exactly it, is IS an Honor to me and shows what type of clients I really do have; they are just wonderfulful.  These particular people live their lives by The Secret and are always an inspiration to me....

Lisa, I want to make sure I am 100% well.....and don't want to bombard them too soon.  My daughter has been there as well and of course she wants to go too.  Knowing her she'll have a blast playing with the baby!

Katerina, It really is....these people went WAY beyond clients years ago and I'm the fortunate one!
