A question came in from Florida. Actually, it ended up to be several questions.

1) My Feng Shui practitioner told me to place moving metal in the West. My daughter’s bedroom is there. I watched your video, is this correct?

I hesitate to question another Feng Shui practitioner’s advice since I haven’t been to your home or know family members (their energy in the space). I also don’t know the level of expertise the Feng Shui practitioner has. Are they basing moving metal in the West because of five during 2015? I can get that from a timing perspective but moving metal isn’t always a way to address a five star.

2) Where should I place my saltwater cure this year?

As I mentioned in the video, I don’t use the word “cure” since we’re negotiating with energy. I also don’t include salt water cures in my recommendations. I know I’ll take some heat for this but here’s why. A bowl of salt water may help a room but it doesn’t address the building. It’s like treating a blemish that is really psoriasis. If the building is sick, it needs to be addressed holistically. A crystal, mirror, trinket, or bowl of water isn’t strong enough to help a building. Small things produce small results (if they do anything at all). I’m a stand for big results … consistent results. Help the building, and it thanks to its occupants.

You were generous with sharing your address with me so I took the liberty of researching your home. Based on its flying stars, I personally think moving metal in the West is too strong. It increases the risk of violence in the West so whether that’s your daughter losing her temper, or a door/window having an intruder … you might ask your Feng Shui practitioner about it. I’d also ask him/her about the NW (head male) and East (eldest son) because those areas need to be addressed sooner than later!

3) Do I travel to Florida?

Yes — I go where the client is (the U.S. and abroad) and have worked in Florida and will be working there again this year. Your response is like others …. and involves cost. What I want to say is … do it right the first time! If you can avert a disaster waiting to activate (accident, illness, breakup, bankruptcy, failed business, etc.), the consult pays for itself. I’m not a fan of living with regret.

4) Will I audit the practitioner’s report?

My answer is the same whether it’s a practitioner’s work or a person who has done their own assessment. No. It goes back to the same reason — do it right the first time. I don’t know their level of experience or expertise. They may not look for what I look for when I’m there, or sense what I sense. As an experienced risk manager … I’m looking for influences beyond Feng Shui. I also have audit experience (both on the initiating side as well as the receiving side), and often times it takes more effort to audit someone’s work than to do the work. I don’t mean any of that to sound boastful. It’s a business practice we adopted, and I believe it is a good one.

Auditing will come into play soon enough, but I’ll know the quality going in. It’s an investment in the future, and our mission to save the world one business, one home, one person at a time. Consider this a pre-announcement. Feng Shui University (practitioner school) is on the horizon and coming to major markets in this decade. More about that later…

Thank you for the question!
May you be exceedingly, generously, and joyfully blessed, (c)          ~Diana
