Feng Shui is the art of ‘harnessing’ Earth luck and, by understanding the effects of CHI / QI, we can reduce the negative and improve the positive aspects of our lives. Feng Shui means ‘Wind – Water’ and traditionally symbolizes the space between heaven and earth – the environment where we live. The underlying philosophy recognizes that humans and their environment are sustained by an invisible, yet tangible energy called ‘Chi’. This may move like wind to activate opportunities but, when frustrated by obstacles, it can eddy like water to become trapped and stagnant.
Feng Shui, therefore, is about aligning yourself to the right energy or Chi and maximizing the potential in the environment in which you live. Often Feng Shui calls for merely taking the right actions and making the right decisions in a given time frame. After all, Feng Shui is all about time and its cycles.
Feng Shui principles may be applied geographically or more superficially to placement, design and decoration. Recommendations to achieve harmony come from light, sound, life, movement, stability, electricity, symbolism, and colour; each and all, as required, are appropriate. Every aspect of home, life, career, and relationships is open to enhancement to facilitate the holistic development of the individual, their family or business by enhancing the immediate environment.
As with most things, it is the intention that we hold that determines the result and, with some insight into our surroundings, we can hope for the best possible outcome. It is necessary, therefore, to demystify Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology and to take steps to understand all that it is and draw from it the energy available to us all, wherever we may live and whatever religion we may choose to follow.
Born in the heart of Wales in the UK, Jill has always had a special relationship with why and how things work better with just a subtle shift in placement, even in her small bedroom as a child when moving things would help her to feel more comfortable and concentrate better. She knew she could feel energy and it was only when she arrived in Hong Kong at the age of 20 that she was able to embark on her true path. Jill studied classical Feng Shui with some of the greatest and most generous Feng Shui masters in Asia and became a master of the art of space alignment and Chinese metaphysics.
Feng Shui, whether through Chinese or Western eyes, is Feng Shui. Jill practices Authentic and Classical methods and also offers readings in Chinese Astrology. Clients receive a unique and practical perspective with guidance on how best to maximise the potential of their space and energy at any given time, taking into account their birth chart as well as the chart of the property. The one aspect that makes Jill unique is that she is in a position to truly explain to her clients the essence of Feng Shui principles by releasing the ‘mystery’ that has been attached to Feng Shui.
Jill has gained international respect also in the corporate sector in Hong Kong and in Europe and many major banks have sought her advice. She also writes a regular blog for one of Hong Kong’s most exclusive real estate agents.
