Why Feng Shui?

Let’s Go Fly a Kite

Happy New Year!

I couldn't wait to tell you! At the end of last year, I hung up my corporate heels for good and stepped into my new life of “retirement”. Can you believe it after all these years? I can’t! Only retirement for this woman is not putting on slippers, remote surfing the “telly” and eating bonbons. Oh no. Well, OK, maybe sometimes, but not for long! No, retiring from my corporate life is about finally stepping into something I have always wanted to do — express myself as an artist and practice Feng Shui full-on.

Why Feng Shui?

Feng Shui changed my life. It is the moment I woke up and my world became vibrant and alive.

When I was seven I used to lie awake and imagine rearranging peoples’ homes and buying furniture for my best friend’s dollhouse.

About 20 years ago, after a lot of soul-searching, I told a business coach this story of my seven year old and she asked if I had ever heard of Feng Shui. I had not. It was an awakening and I realized all this time Feng Shui had been seeking me.

Up until this time I had been doing a lot of different types of art, especially textile design, which included weaving and painting on silk.

I believe everything happens for a reason and right on time. All the many things I have done in my life have brought me to this place where I can now go and be a Feng Shui Designer and Consultant full-time. It couldn’t have happened before.

Over the next month I will be preparing to launch my new or “re-imagined” business. I would love to share some of the creative process with you, especially the transition from Corporate life to my new business. Also, include what I love and inspires me. And of course, share fun Feng Shui tips and stories along the way:) It’s time to play!

So, as George Banks sings in the film Mary Poppins after leaving his job at the Bank, “Let's go fly a kite!”

I look forward to being in touch again soon. In the meantime have fun, play more, give thanks for all the many blessing you do have, and don’t forget to let those you love know just how much they mean to you. We are the light, and creating peace starts with us and in our homes — our sacred spaces — and emanates out into the world.

With peace, love and many blessings, Kate
