What is Feng Shui, and How Does It Work?Written by Stephanie Roberts
Continued from page 1
In a retail store, feng shui problems can block flow of customers into and through store, contribute to theft and staffing problems, and have a negative effect on amount and size of sales.
Feng shui provides tools and guidelines for analyzing and correcting flow of energy into and through our space. It uses arrangement of rooms and placement of furniture to create a smooth pathway for chi through a home, office, or retail location. Blockages and other forms of negative chi are removed or counteracted in order to welcome in opportunities and encourage progress. Colors and shapes associated with five elements-wood, fire, earth, metal, and water-are used to create movement, balance, or protection, depending on needs of client. Imagery and objects such as paintings, photographs, statuary and other accessories are chosen and placed to enhance and reinforce client's intention.
Feng Shui reminds us that everything is connected, and that our physical surroundings have a significant impact on our mind, body, and spirit. It teaches us to be mindful caretakers of our environments, so that we may be mindful caretakers of our lives.

My ClairsentienceWritten by Heidi B. Lapin

That is something I am able to do more and more often now. I only started doing that by chance; it just happened. So, I made myself more aware and in touch with this new “way” to read and now it happens more often. I have been doing more and more spiritual sessions with people who have lost a loved one. The spirits seem to be willing to participate with me and guide me by showing me certain things, thus making me able to give client more detailed messages. Many times, they take me on a trance-like journey to their childhood home or home that client may now live or be very familiar with. They take me throughout house and show me specific things of significance such as a teddy bear on a bed, details of a painting on a wall, or even a crack in a wall or hole in a door. At first, I thought, “why is he/she showing me this?” But I began to realize it’s better just to mention it to client even if it seems frivolous to me. It must be something important, so I just say what I see. I have also wondered if maybe spirit(s) take me on these “detailed journeys” to somehow prove my authenticity to put client as ease and to show they’re really spirit and not some spirit pretending to be them. That is something some spirits and ghosts do when living do séances and/or use a Quija Board. It’s like a free ticket to enter into our realm. Sometimes, imposter spirits will actually act like spirit being called just to play around with living. Why? I honestly don’t really know!
As a long time clairsentient witch, I wrote a quick essay on what I am and what I do. I have this info on my website but usually give it to new clients to give him or her an idea of what I am and what to expect. I have been a clairsentient spiritual advisor on a professional level since appoximately 1996 and have built my clientele by only word-of-mouth references and by those whom come across my website.
