Yet, I learned that feng shui--whether or not one believes in the underlying principles--is definitely commercially viable. I learned while in Vegas that many Far East Asian tourists used to avoid staying at the Luxor for awhile. The property management group consulted with several feng shui experts, and learned that the lion statue (which used to have its paws stretched out horizontally) was a big turn off. After that they made that change, they noticed an explosion of growth in the registrations from Far East Asian tourist.
Even more interesting (at least to me) is that when those tourists were asked--before the renovation--why they didn't want to stay at the Luxor, none of them were able to point out what it was that disturbed them. They just knew that something disturbed them subconsciously.
A Feng Shui master or a Tie Die Girty who have mastered their craft will exhibit these attributes in many aspects of their lives. It is not the subject that causes the result but the mastery.

I read a fantastic book, "Move Your Stuff and Change Your Life'. Feng Shui on a budget, just move the stuff you already have in accordance with Fent Shui principles. You can add or subtract at very low cost as well. I had such fun, just re-arranging the stuff I had on hand, adding a candle here, a wind chime or crystal there, and when I was finished people started commenting right away. "What did you do?" My friends and family asked, "It feels different, it flows better, it FEELS better."
Oh, yeah they will notice, but a word of caution as well. A dear friend hired a so-called Feng Shui expert to do her home. Well, had she followed this person's advice, her home would have looked like Christmas morning all year round. The woman insisted she should paint every other wall either bright red or green!
I much prefer the subtle and fun principles in the book I read!
Sure it will help!! Ok, well maybe it won't hurt.
I'm Catholic with a small "c"; but I've resorted to the old "burying the St.Joseph's statue upside down in the back yard to sell the home".
So I'll see your Feng Shui and raise you 2 statues.
Feng means Wind in Chinese and Shui means water in Chinese but actually, there are eight not two elements in this philosophy system which is formally called Yin-Yang, it is Daoism that is a Chinese philosophy. People learn Yin-Yang for Feng Shui purpose just like a person takes logics and speech courses in school for future yelling people.
I am not saying people should not believe Feng Shui but what happened may not just cause of Feng Shui. That is all if you can feel confortable. We do not have to fiind out the details from Feng Shui aspect. With lack info, nobody can analyze very well.
Be careful, Feng Shui is diffrent from Feng Shui master. Real estate principle is correct, real estate license is not fake but those do not mean real estate pros must be in correct. Feng Shui is the same.
This is not meant to be disrespectful of your Buddist thoughts, Donna, It just comes down to business, regardless of culture, money talks and well....
Annette, that was cool! I hope you don't mind me borrowing that one. :)
Simple and elegant.
But like Shakespeare I am not settled on Being or Not Being feng shui-ed.
Some Feng shui really doesn't work for me. Really.
Therefore perhaps all paths to design enlightenment should be honored.
