You may be a little surprised to see sacred tools alongside scientific tools in a Feng Shui Audit toolkit…
But to me you can’t have one without the other for Feng Shui.
Feng Shui is a beautiful mix of sacred mystery school practices, chinese 5 element theory and practical scientific approach.
And I thought you may like to have a sneak peek or a sticky beak into my bag of tricks.
1.Good quality camera – I take photos of each room of your home and especially the front of your property. It not only provides a good reminder for me when it comes to writing your report, but sometimes pictures can tell you a lot about the energy of your home or business. They can either symbolically represent the energy playing out in a room or they can literally capture energy, spirits, orbs etc which can be moving around your space.
2. Oracle cards – yes, believe it or not I sit with the energy or your home or biz before I even step foot on your property. I meditate, connect and draw information from reading the energy of the cards to provide a bit of a background to the underlying energy or your space.
3. Digital measure – this is one of my must-have tools for accurate measure. They are the best things to have. This is a little bit of a hardware tool nerd thing. It’s a laser measuring tape which I can use without having a 2nd person to measure a room or wall. Quick, easy and accurate and a must have if you plan on drawing up your own floor plans.
4. Water – this may be a bit obvious but being hydrated is uber important. Especially if I am having to dowse or use my intuition. Any form of energy work requires all your cells and energetic ‘feelers’ to be hydrated. If you are dehydrated you won’t get accurate readings, feelings or your senses can be out. So I always make sure I carry my water bottle with me.
5. Compass – well you can’t call yourself a Feng Shui consultant if you don’t have a compass. This is one major important tool that any great Feng Shui consultant should bring to your site. And secondly knowing how to read it correctly is also even more important. Accurate compass readings are a must, if this is not done correctly then your whole Feng Shui chart and recommendations will be out.
6. Carry bag – I’m being captain obvious here but having a durable, easy to carry bag to haul all my tools in, is one of the best investments. It has so many pockets, padding for fragile items and I can pretty much carry everything in one bag. I love this bag.
7. Feng Shui transparency or Lopan – this is yet another super Feng Shui tool that helps to draw up your Flying Star chart for your home or biz. It helps to locate the sectors of your building, the mountain and replacement stars. It’s a necessity for any professional accurate Feng Shui consultant.
8. Radiation Finder – this is used in most, if not all your rooms, to check whether there are any electromagnetic radiation that may be impacting you and your living spaces. If EMF’s are recorded in areas in which you spend a lot of time e.g. your bed or sitting areas, it will override any Feng Shui furniture placement because the priority is your health. Recorded EMF from electrical appliances have been linked to childhood leukaemia and brain tumours as well as other health implications.
9. Dowsing Tools – I always take both my Pendulum and Dowsing rods when going on site. These are mainly used in Space Clearing and Geomancy audits but if something a little strange comes up in a Feng Shui audit e.g. if a person is sleeping in the Divine Mountain Dragon (best place ever to sleep to support your health and relationships) and has issues with sleeping, I can use my dowsing tools to quickly check whether it is from geopathic stress, spirits etc.
10. Stationary – these are obvious tools but highly important especially rulers and erasers. If I am having to make any adjustments to plans on site, I need these at the ready to maintain the accuracy of your Feng Shui charts.
11. Client’s floor plan – before I visit any site for a Feng Shui audit I require accurate, to-scale floor plans in order to provide accurate charts and readings of a site. These are vital to any proper Feng Shui audit.
12. My trusty iPad and iPhone (using it to take the photo) – these come in handy for using apps just in case anything else fails e.g. compasses get dropped or decide not to work, drawing of floor plans if there is a room or workshop that was missed in the plans. I am able to easily reach for these amazing new devices which makes things so much easier.
13. Heart Chakra Clear Quartz Crystal Singing Bowl – this is a perfect sacred tool as it fits on the palm of my hand and I can carry it around your site. If by chance there is some disturbance in the energy in a room I can use this to clear the energy and eliminate the chance of built up energy causing the imbalance. Though other reasons could be a challenging Flying Star combination, geopathic stress or spirit activity.
14. Other Sacred Tools – I also like to take with me some other sacred tools that may call out to me on the day and that is specific to the site. Here I have the Tibetan Bell and two large Rose Quartz, sometimes the crystals ask to stay at a persons home or biz and other times they just come for the ride and help hold space for the audit to occur.
For someone like myself who loves spirituality, spaces, symbology and energetics, backed by science, mathematics, Chinese 5 element theory and astrology, Feng Shui is all this wrapped up in one modality. It rocks!
