Feng Shui Friday

about_Us

My education in Feng Shui, or the art of placement,began in Japan in 1992. I was teaching English in Sendai, and my employers and his wife were trying to have a baby. One Feng Shui Master and 5 empty white picture frames later, they were expecting, and I was hooked. Over the next 20 years, I've consumed over 30 books on the subject, and have practiced 3 variations of Feng Shui from 3 schools of thought in my many consultations. I have arrived at a practice that combines the Form School, Flying Star elements, and Black Hat, or Western Feng Shui. I utilize traditional Feng Shui principles, but use a Western perspective with respect to architecture, property layout, and land location. I've completed a gold level Feng Shui practitioners program and am a graduate and professional member of the International Feng Shui Guild. My expertise lies in achieving a balance of all areas in a retail or personal space while maintaining the aesthetic integrity in order to achieve the client's goals. -Melissa Leib.

We bought a house! It’s all wood-wood inside, wood outside-even wood floors under the hideous carpet!! 


What does it mean when your home is heavy in the wood element and what should you do?


Too much wood can be associated with arguments and fueling tempers. I’m going to say this house has too much wood. If you don’t want to argue, it’s best to try to achieve a balance of elements ASAP.


Metal is an element used to destroy wood, so I can use this sparingly to diffuse the wood. This is furniture, accessories and the colors gray and white. 


I will also use the fire element to reduce the strength of wood, as fire burns wood, but metal kills it. Think lights, candles, colors. 


Stay tuned for a full Feng Shui diagnosis and Renovation of my home coming soon.
