Call on a Feng Shui expert

A graduate of the European Institute of Feng Shui, Sylvie Karakozian set up her company, “Espace Feng Shui”, in Paris. Interview by Nadège Monschau When and why request the intervention of a Feng Shui expert at home? When you move into an apartment or house, you can take advantage of Feng Shui to properly arrange your new space, and thus increase the vibration of the place. If you are already installed and want to renovate your home, you can also call on a Feng Shui practitioner: he will help tenants or owners to make the right choice of colors, arrangement of furniture, etc. . Such expertise is also very beneficial to those who wish to improve an aspect of their private life, for example finding family harmony. Feng Shui is indeed effective in feeling good, not only at home, but also with each other. Finally, when you want to make a new start after a long illness, start anew after a break-up or any other event, a consultation eliminates all traces of the difficult moments we have gone through ... What happens during a consultation ? According to the principles decreed by "the School of the Compass", the practitioner begins by making the plan of the accommodation and noting the magnetic orientations which govern it. It is particularly fundamental to know in which axis the door is located, to understand what type of energy penetrates the place and what it can bring to the hosts. Thanks to a grid called "Bagua", the space is then divided into nine sectors. To each of these sectors corresponds an aspect of life (health, love, career ...), but also a color, a material ... By going around the property, the expert can then identify and note all the shortcomings and problems , and take pictures. This first reading is supplemented by an astral study, which provides a better understanding of the history of the dwelling, and an observation of the external environment: vegetation, buildings, etc. Of course, dialogue with the inhabitants remains fundamental: the consultant must identify their personalities and expectations. Following this collection of information, the practitioner produces a report of 20 to 40 pages, which he then gives to his customers so that they can follow his advice and instructions, and thus arrange their space in a beneficial way. After these two meetings, which will have lasted an average of 3 to 4 hours, the Feng Shui professional obviously remains available if necessary. Because the price varies only depending on the area to be studied (from 250 euros for a small studio) and the number of occupants. What types of modifications can the expert suggest? It is very variable. Because every detail counts. But this is not to revolutionize everything in the house! Sometimes it is enough to orient a headboard differently so that the inhabitants sleep better and wake up really in shape. Or move the sofas and armchairs in the living room so that they communicate so that the occupants of the apartment open up to a better dialogue. But we can also propose cutting down a partition or decluttering the entrance hall to promote the circulation of energy, repainting a room in a color more suited to the sector concerned, planting a plant barrier to house the house, etc. Often, a motivated customer can complete all of the tasks on their list in one weekend. And feel an improvement after three to four weeks ... Can an individual learn Feng Shui through courses or training? Yes. During small introductory courses to the basic principles, he will discover the elements, the vital energy, the yin and the yang, the colors, the sectors… In three days, a neophyte can better understand Feng Shui and apply certain rules his home. However, nothing beats an in-depth study by a qualified professional. > More info www.espacefengshui.com
