As previously mentioned in the Feng Shui consultations page, a large part of creating a harmonious living environment is about removing harmful influences. Of these, removing innappropriate symbolism and art work is very important - as the images we see day in day out, drip-feed our subconscious mind with symbols of who we are and what our lives are like. Symbolically the home and it's contents mirror our lives. So if there are pictures of battle scenes, unhappy people or storms or bleakness - this is what we will experience. By removing unhelpful symbolism, and adding positive new pictures of exactly what we want... we will surely get it.
In a consultation I did for a couple, the lady was often 'doubled over' with back pain. In the picture opposite their bed ( this is THE most significant picture position in the whole house ) the picture was of a lady bending over to pick up cockles. In this famous painting, the lady looks doubled over.
Although this picture is valuable in material terms, the effect on this lady's health is questionnable. Certainly the first thing you see in the morning, and the last at night, strongly imprint on your subconscious mind. If the lady had had no back problems, this painting would not be an issue but she did.
People often say 'but I love that painting' ot 'it is an heirloom' or 'it is worth a fortune.' This is fine, but how important is your health, or your relationship, or improving your financial situation?
Sometimes it is possible to relocate innappropriate images to other areas of the house - where they will have a beneficial or neutral effect. Sometimes - it isn't. The question to ask yourself is 'which area of my life would I like to feel doubled over / bleak / stormy / have a battle? If the answer is none, maybe it is time to let go of the picture and let something more positive come into your life.
Other innappropriate symbolism includes anything which doesn't align itself with your major goals. This could be ornaments, the way furniture is positioned, themes around the house - such as just ONE of everything in a home where the person is wanting a relationship and the general state of your home.
You could try analysing your space symbolically and thinking about what it says about you. What stories do the pictures in your home tell? Do these relate to your life?
Is your home tidy and organised? Or are there many unfinished jobs... things to sort ... mountains of mess? How does the organisation of your home compare to the organisation of your life?
Is your environment warm and nurturing? Do you / other people feel comfortable in your space? Do you / other people want to spend time there? Or is it a showpiece, where everything has to be immaculate? How does the level of comfort in your home relate to the level of comfort in your life?
What do the lighting, colours, fragrances, fabrics and sounds say about you?
We get so used to what's around us, that we begin to not notice things anymore. One time, I was staying in a B & B for a week, and didn't use my car whilst I was there. When I returned to my car, with fresh eyes, I noticed how disgustingly dirty it was! However in the weeks before that, I had been so busy thinking about other things, that it hadn't seemed so bad.
Having a Feng Shui consultation gives you an objective outside view which is invaluable to taking stock of what you home is saying about you, and then prioritise the steps to change it. Call now to change your life.
I just wanted to tell you that the friend Kathy H whom I was uncertain about actually sent me a text 5 minutes after we had finished talking!!!! So we must have energised the link!!! And your wisdom to help me learn more also is good. I'm meeting her on Saturday, and we'll have a coffee etc.
A beautiful and moving image now graces my wall: layers of vibrant colour alternatively reveal and conceal forms of significance, depicted with emotion and artistry. The abstract quality is such that it is a timeless piece I will always value and enjoy.

Growing up in China, I have always interested in Fengshui. As we were moving to Ipswich, I googled Fengshui consultant locally and that is how I found Rachel. I am so glad that we connected through the email initially. The house move took 9 months, Rachel was so patient, and she offered me advice through the process. I was so excited to meet her the day after we moved in. It provided us with a lot of comfort and guidiance at the new home. With her consultation, we had a much better understanding of the new space. Rachel is very intuitive, she did the dowsing, cleared the geopathic stress by using 'acupuncture'. The ritual she carried out involved all family member, so it was rather special. By using Fengshui principle and combined with our personal astrology, Rachel pointed out where the 'special corners' in our house, for example the wealth, relationship, friends and helpful people etc; She also helped us choose the interior colour, elemental accessories, positive symbolism in art works etc. I am so glad that I have found Rachel. It made us settle in and connect with our new home much quicker. The declutter has given us a much healthier space to live in. Whenever I feel disconnected with our home, I try to use some of the Fengshui she taught us to refresh and cleanse. I am so grateful that I contacted Rachel at the first place.
I asked for Rachels help with a young family member. They were having mental health issues which involved refusing to attend school, withdrawing from friendship groups and showing signs of psychosis. Rachel discussed with me her findings regarding her birth date and time in relation to her specialised work. Together we put a plan in place as I was to help. I carried out her recommendations. She stated that this time would come to an end this Spring and they would be through the part of the chart that was causing the chaos. I am so excited to report that they were again attending school until the lockdown. She is fully interacting with her family and is again part of her friendship group. Due to the lockdown and her now being well she is catching up with the school work she missed and will be ready to start again when the time comes. She is now off all medication which included ADHD and antidepressant prescription drugs. I cannot thank Rachel enough. If you are on the fence regarding her work, don’t be, it will be the best thing you could do for yourself and those you care for.
"Before I got in touch with Rachel, I was at a loss to know what to do. I had bought a flat to rent out in Ipswich, but it attracted the wrong types of tenants. The previous three tenants had either not paid their rent or had left the flat in a very bad state of repair, or both. In effect, I was just chucking money into a big black hole. I wanted to keep the flat, which I would eventually pass on to my son, but I still had the mortgage to pay. After reading about feng shui and the effect it can have, I was keen to find out more. I contacted Rachel and she explained what she intended to do and why. Admittedly, I was a bit sceptical at first, but I was keen to give it a go. Much to my amazement, after a six month rent void, that same week, a potential tenant turned up at the flat. The couple liked what they saw and moved in within two weeks. Much to my relief, they also paid the rent on time. I highly recommend Rachel to anyone in a similar situation."
