“If you want to find the secrets of the universe,
think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
Contemporary Feng Shui
The term Feng Shui according to “Wikipedia” literally translates as “Wind-Water” in English. Feng Shui is one of the Five Arts of Chinese Metaphysics, classified as physiognomy (observation of appearances through formulas and calculations). The Feng Shui practice discusses architecture in metaphoric terms of “invisible forces” that bind the universe, earth, and humanity together, known as qi.
Historically, Feng Shui was widely used to orient buildings—often spiritually significant structures such as tombs, but also dwellings and other structures—in an auspicious manner. Depending on the particular style of Feng Shui being used, an auspicious site could be determined by reference to local features such as bodies of water, stars, or a compass.
I personally incorporate the principles of Feng Shui by looking at the environment as a whole. I determine if the 5 elements are working in harmony along with the yin/yang calculations. I find value in the use of form and compass school teachings along with appropriate transcendental and practical cures. Prosperity, health and love partnerships seem to be at the top of the list.
In order to achieve these I teach how to connect with the natural forces and essence of a place. The flow along with vitality of the Qi is a determination to the aliveness of that environment. The alignment with what is referred by Heavenly and Earthly Qi is critical in supporting the other methodologies used to allow a true “Vibrational Transformation” of the space to take place.
Feng Shui / Green Design Principals
Green Design and Feng Shui both approach the study of human and environment interaction similarly. Both are concerned with nature, energy and cycles. Through comparison of these two design concepts we examine similarities between Green Design and Feng Shui and differences between them while illuminating how Feng Shui principles can be used in contemporary design.
Green Design / Feng Shui
One of the major concepts of sustainable development is “Green Design” for the built environment. Both Green Design and Chinese Feng Shui principles are concerned with nature, energy, and cycles. Nature, from the Green Design perspective, refers to the physical environment such as water, soil, air, and so on. From the Feng Shui perspective, nature includes both natural elements and their cultural meanings. The ecological approach used by Green Design emphasizes protecting the natural environment and people’s health; the cultural approach used by Feng Shui emphasizes building an auspicious place for people to inhabit.

Geomancy Pendulum Energy Cleansing
What is Geomancy?
Geomancy literally means, “Divining the Earth”. It is an art that analyses the subtle earth energies that ebb and flow throughout the landscape, influencing health and wealth, home, garden and office alike. Geomancy works harmoniously with these energies enhance our relationship with Spirit and Place.
Every culture has ancient geomantic traditions – the Chinese tradition is feng-shui. Like feng-shui, geomancy can tell you what’s wrong with the energies in your home or workplace, and how to correct them. In addition, Western geomancy utilizes dowsing and earth acupuncture techniques to deal with geopathic stress and balance the subtle earth energies. Practitioners can also use scientific instrumentation to assess electromagnetic and microwave pollution (or technopathic stress) – an increasing problem for many people in our technologically advanced and gadget-obsessed society including fifth generation.
Geomancy is also interested in the location and orientation of new spaces, particularly ones that enhance our connection to Spirit. If you want to know where the power center is in your garden lets say to build a temple, or if you want to know the best place for an altar in your living room; a geomancer can tell you.
Whether your sacred space is a single crystal, a personal altar, a standing stone, medicine wheel, labyrinth, stone circle or something larger geomancy can help you design, locate, align and activate the space so that it connects with and enhances the natural energies of the earth.
Unfortunately In our modern society it is increasingly common for houses and other buildings to be sited over such geopathic stress zones.
Geomancer’s are trained to detect and manipulate these energies to minimize their detrimental effects and restore balance to the area.
The space clearing process releases and transmutes the stagnant energies in a space and allows us to replace them with supportive and positive energies in our homes and offices. It can often be a liberating and transformative experience for the inhabitants.
In a secular context, geomancy offers space clearing services for atmospheric realignment. Underground water and earth energies have been associated with Geopathic stress, ‘sick building syndrome’, and even psycho-spiritual disturbances such as ghosts, poltergeists and so on. Spirit release is an essential part of geomantic training.
As continuing psychic hygiene and maintenance of a space is paramount in geomantic awareness, space-clearing is fundamental to both sacred and secular geomantic practice. Personally I tend to apply this process in the last phase of working on a project regardless if its home, land or business.
The Space Clearing process includes at least 12 modalities which constitute a deep form of Shamanic Earth healing which is not for the faint of heart. Many Geomancer’s have gone through years of an array of training in order to be effective in tuning into the subtle energies of ones space.
Warning, substance abuse of any kind, certain music, books, violent video games, some TV programs, certain objects brought into the space can undermine the sustainable results of the clearing process.
Excerpts from Richard Creightmore- from the “Land & Spirit”
A geomancer is like a gatekeeper who can create portals ‘between the worlds’. If you want to connect with the sacred, a geomancer can help you build that gate.
Some people are sensitive to these energies, over a period of prolonged exposure their immune system can lead to serious illness.
Our world is going through many changes and challenges. Tuning up your space is vital. Solutions to Geopathic Stressors make a difference.
It is vitally important for a human-made structure to honor and make connections with the physical environment. This creates stability, acceptance by the spirit of the land, and very real anchor lines which allow energy flow between the structure and surrounding landscape.
We can always depend on Nature for the answers when it comes to balance. Applying these concepts to our everyday lives is key. Harmonious living at home and work is achievable with the 5 elements application.
