Let Go of Expectations when Feng Shui-ing your Home and Life

Laura Cerrano


Let go of expectations! This may sound counter intuitive yet there is truth to the statement.  Of course set your intentions and take the necessary actions to assist in nurturing them. While at the same time releasing your hold on specific outcomes. 

Here is a quick story about a New York client named, Larry whom I worked with in 2012.  One of his main intentions was deciding whether to stay in a relationship or not. He implemented the suggested Feng Shui changes into his apartment and about a month later shared he decided to break up with his girlfriend.  

What?? HOLD ON....What type of Feng Shui-ing is this? 

Now before you jump to judgment, keep this in mind, he already held the intention of should he break up with his girlfriend or not. By him committing to implementing the feng shui changes inside his home, it felt it helped him become clearer with his decision.

             Ready for another twist in the story? 

The following year in 2013, I received an email from a new client who happened to be Larry's ex. I have to say I was very surprised and thought in that moment....OMG what does she want??!! The universe works in mysterious ways, as they say. Long story short, Emma shared the break up with Larry was one of the best decisions for both of them. She saw how amazing he was doing so she figured, why not give feng shui a try. 

So you see, not only is it necessary for the client to let go of expectations, it's also necessary for the feng shui consultant to let go as well. And I am happy to report both are doing great!

Feng Shui Fits Your Lifestyle

Laura Cerrano

Feng Shui is a practice that encourages flexibility. A client of mine in Brooklyn New York showed me a room within her apartment that was not being fully utilized. Her intention was to transform that room into a "minimalist meditation space."

At first glance a you may say this room didn't change. But, before you jump to judgment, let me point out the subtle feng shui suggestions. 

1. The pillows and seating were purposely brought together as to acknowledge the life section of partnership (addressing items int pairs). 

2. The accent color of pink though the use of two candles was also utilized to honor partnership and invite warm activating energy into the room.

3. The left wall in both photos connects to the life section of "fame." Based on her layout, the structure of the wall's placement created a separation of energy. To help reconnect this split, by adding two candles (fire energy for fame) and lite during meditation holds the intention of unity (partnership) and illumination (fame/reputation).  

4. The artwork along the left wall also changed. The original artwork displayed a metal fence that created a feeling of separation. Currently, the artwork has been changed to dandelions flowers.

5. The element of wood (represented by the bamboo plant) and water (glass vase with water in it) encourages spiritual growth and movement within the room. Even when it's not in physical use.

6. Two rose quartz crystals were added to honor earth element and partnership.

7. Finally, she placed inside the room an image of a spiritual master that inspires her.

Hopefully, this helps to also illustrate in Feng Shu that changes you implement do not need to be "in your face" or complex.
