How Feng Shui Can Change Your Life

In my Feng Shui business, I have noticed over the years that when clients start changing their home environment they experience some type of change in their outer lives. There seems to be a direct correlation in seeing the world differently and experiencing it differently. One would not think that moving your bed or couch would start the domino effect leading to changing jobs or finding love, but somehow it does. What is that all about?

How to Sense Energy Flow in Your Home

Sensing energy flow in your home is vital when designing a space. We like to think that arranging our rooms based on our style alone will suffice in creating a nurturing home, but how the energy moves without a stick of furniture in it can make or break our well-being. 

Creating Your Classroom

I walked into a high school classroom to assess the energy before I began to formulate a plan to feng shui it. The classroom had a lot of visuals on the walls. Being a foreign language class, that would be both typical and necessary to create the atmosphere needed to keep students in the language. There were posters of historical sites, cute images of animals speaking French, and of course the classroom phrases that all students need to know like “puis-je aller aux toilettes?” I also noted French vocab labels on everything from stapler to map. All the décor showed me this teacher was thorough in his coursework and the uplifting expressions demonstrated he cared about his students. How did I feel energetically in the space? Heavy.

The Divorce House

By Sabrina Matheny • Rumble Contributor | Feng Shui consultants know that major life changing events affect the energy of a home. These houses should come with warning labels that read: side effects include possibility of bankruptcy, terminal illness anddivorce. The energy experienced during traumatic events gets absorbed into the space. I am not referring to a temporary setback such as a job loss, an argument, or the flu. I means repeated low vibrational emotions that accumulate in a space until it has a consciousness of its own.

Feng Shui Journey Pt. 2

When I work with people, I like to warn them that the work we are doing in their home leads to internal changes. How we arrange our space is always a reflection of the way we think and feel about ourselves. Feng Shui is a path to healing. The patterns I uncover are meant to allow my clients to see how they are holding beliefs in place that no longer serve their spirit.

It's a Yin / Yang Thing

By Sabrina Matheny • Rumble Contributor | Ah fall…and the beautiful colors that come with it! A season that as the temperatures get cooler, we begin to spend a little more time indoors.  We love pumpkins, football, and the holidays that are just around the corner.  As we gear up for more festivities, it’s a good time to look at our space and feel it through our energy system.  

Lunch Boxes & Backpacks & School Supplies... Oh My!

By Sabrina Matheny • Rumble Contributor | I love this time of year!  My boys are older now and instead of packing their lunchboxes, I’m packing their suitcases for college. I still look back at their early years of schooling with fondness. You can feel the energy changing as kids end their carefree days of summer and move into the routine of school in the fall. Here are a few pointers for elementary aged kids that can ease the transition of going back to school that I’ve learned not only in the trenches by being a mother of four boys, but also in helping families in my Feng Shui practice.
