Feng Shui is "not" about superstition, religion or philosophy, nor is it an occult practice.
Feng Shui is the study of ENERGY and how energy impacts and shapes your home, health, wealth, family, communication, and reputation.
Everything in the Universe is ENERGY.
Feng Shui observes the energy and cycles of the solar system, and the energy inside and outside a house to determine the BEST homes for you to live in.
As a human being, you are one of EIGHT Chinese elements. You have four "power directions" and four SHA (bad) directions.
It’s VITAL to your life and livelihood that you know and honor these directions during work, rest, play and when buying property.
Is to unite TIME, SPACE, PEOPLE and the ENVIRONMENT as one integral entity, so that energy flows dynamically and effortlessly in, as, around and through you.
When this is accomplished, HAPPINESS and SUCCESS occur, naturally.
GOOD lots, locations, floor plans, architecture, design, décor and placement are based on East/West principles of energy and quantum physics.
We are the only Feng Shui school that teaches this to professionals and individuals, worldwide.
Based on your Feng Shui Element, a house will either EMPOWER you or deplete your life force energy.
Likewise, the LOCATION of a house on a lot, the LOCATION of a lot on a street and the FENG SHUI of a floor plan are "all" critical factors for you to consider "thoroughly" BEFORE buying a home.
What you don’t know about Feng Shui in real estate can hurt you and your BUYERS.
What you do know "correctly" about this art and science, will help you market and sell property in record time.
Learn what "screams" BUY ME, versus losing a buyer to bad Feng Shui.
As a Seller, it benefits you "immensely" to learn all that you can about Feng Shui principles and the law of attraction.
There is more to Feng Shui that meets the eye. What’s beautiful décor is not always supportive and life enriching ENERGY for your clients.
If you want to be of TRUE SERVICE, it’s imperative that you learn the core principles of Feng Shui, INSIDE/OUT.
You are the game changers for people seeking commercial buildings and houses that support and enrich lives and careers.
Feng Shui CERTIFICATION is not an option for you. It is a requirement for the people you serve.

New trends in home construction have resulted in cost efficient, smaller home designs. It has, however, also created a need for space that is being manifested in the latest renovation craze – expansion of the backyard deck.
According to Harvard's Joint Center for Housing Studies, the average homeowner has cutback on spending for renovations (after six years of increases), but the average cost of a deck renovation has still risen 40% between 2004 and 2007 to almost $10,350. A typical deck on an above average home has increased to 700 square feet (larger than most indoor great rooms).
Decks make the perfect add-on for the whole family. Kids can play on them, they are great for entertaining and they offer an excellent resale return for your money. When done properly, a deck renovation should appear as an outdoor living space. If you're seated, indoors and looking out, your deck should appear as an additional room, without walls.
The old lawn furniture designs have also gone by the wayside. Now they've been replaced with couches, easy chairs and coffee tables made from waterproof materials and all-weather TV's. Outdoor kitchens with built in appliances, fridge, cupboards and counters are also widely used. All season deck use is more common now with the addition of patio heaters and awnings.
When it comes to barbecues, you can throw out your old black model and opt for a shiny stainless steel version with more options than an Italian sportscar. Start with your basic 6 or 8 foot long unit, with interior and exterior lighting, large griddle, double burners, butcher block food preparation area, and bar prep area including blender and sink. If you really want to splurge, throw in an add-on brick fireplace for authentic stone oven pizzas.
Other popular trends in today's decks include low maintenance products such as composite decking. A colonial baluster looks just like wood, but is composed of PVC and has a pre-painted wood look. Although composite decking usually runs about 30% higher than average wood products, you do save on maintenance costs. Nothing is perfect, however, some homeowners complain of heat build-up in the hot sun, a slippery surface when wet, and others say that the material can stain or scratch over time.
Just like any new trend, homeowners want their decks to be bigger, or more unique than the next guy. North Carolina resident Eddy Zaretsky just spent $75,000 on a 1,150 square foot deck renovation that included wet bar, built-in stereo system, hot tub, two gazebos (one for the hot tub, one for the dining area), fountain and stainless-steel grill. The new deck can easily accommodate 50 to 60 people, and competes with the homeowners association's clubhouse as "party central".
Troy Dana's in Olympia, Washington has employed an octagon shaped, 3,200 square foot deck. It takes advantage of valley views, south side sunshine, an arbor, built-in benches, hot tub and shower. The cooler north end boasts a steel firepit and panoramic view. Although the deck looks and feels like wood, it's made of composite, splinter-free decking material.
