How has Feng Shui changed you?
Sybilla: Feng Shui has changed my life in profound ways. I have a life I love with my soul mate and have experienced positive changes in career, creativity, family connections and health.
What is the result for others you’ve helped?
Sybilla: After they have had a consult, clients note that they would never have looked at their environment as a place that could promote positive change in their lives. They begin to see the relationship to how they feel in their bodies to what is going on in their environment. They see how they feel with different colors and notice that sometimes just changing their bedroom can promote good sleep and overall feelings of well-being.
Is there a religious/holistic aspect?
Sybilla: Feng Shui is not a religion but a science of physics. Everything in our environment has movement or gives off an energetic impulse. When we create space and add elements that have a higher vibration or movement we feel that on subtle levels. We also lift our inner chi when we are in a space that is energetically supporting us. The opposite is true and can be proven that when we are viewing things or hearing sounds that are not uplifting, our energy is affected in the opposite way.
How are the seasons involved with Feng Shui?
Sybilla: Classical Feng Shui or flying star is based on the seasons changing. For instance wood energy is mirrored by spring energy—new, fresh and growing. Fire energy is based on summer and full sun. Water energy is winter and closing down or yin energy. Metal energy mirrors fall and moving into winter season. Earth energy mirrors fall and autumn season.
How are the principles of Feng Shui explained in your book?
Sybilla: In the Prosperity Factor book I talk about simplifying Feng Shui with a process using color and working off the Feng Shui tool called a bagua. This is based on an old but profound system that utilizes a type of energy template and makes it much easier to adapt to our western thinking. I created a process for working with this to start noticing every area in your life and then your home that you would like to change.
Tell us about your latest book, “The Prosperity Factor.”
Sybilla: Joe Vitale, from the movie, “The Secret,” approached me about including a chapter in his book on and how one might use Feng Shui for prosperity. I am included along with several authors who feel that if people can have a multitude of tools to build a happier and more prosperous life then we will have a happier world. Who doesn’t want that?! This book is similar to a Chicken Soup for the Soul in the sense that it is a collaboration of ideas and principles to improve one’s life.
