Frequently Asked Questions
How does feng shui work?
Our thoughts and feelings are the lens through which we see and experience our lives. Furthermore, external and internal reflect and support each other: when we feel a certain way, the external conditions of our lives begin to reflect that and vice versa. Feng shui is an ancient and yet very relevant art that helps us to create environments that support us in experiencing feelings of success, happiness, joy, and all good things. Naturally, when we feel these things feelings regularly, they begin to positively shape the choices we make and the things we experience and manifest in our lives.
What exactly does a feng shui consultation entail?
For on-site consultations, you’ll provide a simple floor plan drawing, and you’ll begin by sitting down and discussing your feelings about your life and your space. Then, Tess will ask for a tour and she’ll ask you questions as we go, such as, “How often do you spend time here?” or “Tell me about this picture.” After the tour, you’ll immediately go through a second time, during which time Tess will give advice and take notes. After the consultation, you’ll receive a written report via email. For a phone consultation, you’ll just email a floor plan (unless you only want to talk about clutter or another aspect of your life) and you and Tess will talk about the priorities as she sees them. (No written report is included with the phone consultation, although if you send your floor plan, Tess can send it back to you with the bagua, or feng shui floor plan, drawn over it.)
Will I have to spend a lot of money, or put things in my space that I don’t like?
No. Tess will always work within your budget and personal style preferences. Feng shui is very versatile – meaning there are endless ways to approach it – and it is especially important that your feng shui efforts merge seamlessly with your lifestyle.
How long does it take to see results?
As mentioned above, the point of feng shui is to feel better in our spaces immediately. Once we tune into these improved feelings, the external conditions of our lives cannot help but shape themselves to mirror these feelings. That being said, there is no set answer to when you will begin to see results in the physical world. Some may happen immediately, others may take some time.
Will I feel embarrassed about how imperfect my feng shui is?
No. Tess really has seen almost everything. She does not have set expectations or a cookie cutter standard, and she is not judgmental at all. People often expect that she will be horrified by their closets or garages (etc.), but she never is.
Tess uses the word “magic” a lot. Does she consider feng shui to be magic?
The author Dion Fortune defined magic as “the art of changing consciousness at will.” And by that definition, yes! Feng shui is magic. The spaces we spend our time in have a powerful effect on our consciousness: they can help us feel happy, balanced, prosperous, and successful in all areas of life. And because we naturally magnetize what we feel, we can employ feng shui to help us experience these conditions not just as inner feelings, but also as outer conditions.
