Questions: Hi, Laura. I am researching the topic of Feng Shui for an article and I wanted to know; Some individuals are under the misconception that Feng Shui only applies to Asians. What leads to this perspective? And how can the media educate the public on Feng Shui?
Thank you for reaching out and what great questions!
Over the 17+ years that I've been in practice, the demographics of my clients range from a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds. It's never only been for one particular 'group.'
Feng Shui is a universal language that literally bridges diverse lifestyles from around the world. In Feng Shui its said your home is a metaphor of your life. So for each person, their home has the potential to offer a unique expression of who they are based on personal beliefs, culture, challenges and goals. Taking that information and blending it with the principles of Feng Shui provides a personalized formula for one’s own aesthetic taste inside their home.
Various media outlets could help shift this misguided perception by discussing Feng Shui with a universal mindset; as a healing modality that benefits everyone. By the same token, its also important for Feng Shui consultants (including myself) to be mindful in how we choose to educated the public about Feng Shui.
