'CONSULTATIONS' & 'APPOINTMENT INFORMATION'
Feng Shui is the Ancient Art and Science of Creating balanced, healthy environments that support the Well-being of the occupants by reducing or eliminating harmful or diminishing effects of the architectural structure of the building, land it is sited on
or other sources of negative Chi(energy). Bagua School Feng Shui uses the energetic feng Shui Bagua map to locate the 9 Essential Life areas of the building or room so that enhancements and improvements will be aligned with your intention and purpose.
"Where Intention goes energy Flows"
Do you want your environments to be:
1. Healthy, Balanced, and Beautiful?
2. Functional, Well Organized and Productive?
Patti Newton suggests;
"With a Feng Shui approach you can create an inspiring combination of what will meet your intentions for the space and the architectural considerations of the building !"
In Feng Shui practice there is a very important basic rule: Address 'diminishing' Chi before you 'enhance'. It is imperative that we look at what forms our diminishing chi takes: In the physical realm it could be excessive clutter taking up room in our environments, on mental levels it could take the form of worry, indecision, and procrastination. On the emotional level it could be overwhelm, depression, and fear. If we don't address what is 'diminishing' first, we would find it challenging to truly make lasting enhancements or positive changes in our lives. Often we are encouraged to focus on the improvements and positive goals we want to make or achieve, rather than focusing on what is diminishing our vital life force and why.
Each Feng Shui consultation is unique and custom designed for each client
to address your individual goals and concerns for:
Work, Relationship, Family, Wealth, Health,
Support, Knowledge and Self Image?
The expression of the Five Elements is key to a balanced and healthy home/ work environment. In Feng Shui practice the elements are represented by a color, shape, material or object. When the elements are out of Balance, too much of one and too little of another it may have impact on the well being of the occupants. If we use nature as our inspiration we will design our interior spaces with more harmony and a stronger flow of 'Chi'. This enhancement will offer great benefits to our overall positive outlook and vitality!
It is vital to have a good Flow of Life Force Energy
in your home, work space and yard.
Increasing the Flow of Positive Chi will up-lift your sense of well-being!
Feng Shui offers many simple yet powerful methods
to improve this energy flow!
We begin by addressing diminishing Chi (energy)
before we enhance!
The 'map' is a energetic blueprint that when laid over your home or office tells you what each section of your floor plan represents. By placing furniture and objects in their optimal positions, that area of your life will be enhanced.
If you are having trouble in a particular area of your life, see where it falls in your home according to the Bagua and clean up that part of your home. Then according to Feng Shui, that area of your life will then change and improve!
This image is an original Bagua Map by Patti Newton with her photographs of flowers from her garden.
They represent the colors associated with each life area.
Career - Black
Partnership - Pink
Family - Green
Wealth - Purple
Health - Yellow
Helpful People - Grey
Children/Creativity - White
Knowledge - Blue
Fame & Reputation - Red
These colors, if placed in the associated 9 Life areas of your home or workspace will allow you to align with the vibrational resonance of that area and therefore increase and uplift the 'Chi' or 'Life force energy!
This is of great benefit to the occupants!
Bringing nature into our homes is a key component of the teachings of Feng Shui. The goal is to have the expression of all of the five element balanced in every room of of our living space and to create an overall harmonious theme that unifies the home and at the same time expresses the personal style of the occupants. The elements have representative Colors, Shapes, and Materials For example:
Water -Turquoise, Black, purple, Wavy, Spiral, Mirrors, glass
Wood - Plants, trees, flowers, green, pillars, wood floors and furniture, books
Fire - Red, Bright orange, yellow Triangles, Bold Patterns
Earth - Brown, stone, brick, ceramic tile, Heavy objects
Metal - Silver, shiny gold, white, Grey, pastels, hard, reflective, Roun
The Symbolic presence and balance of both Yin and Yang features expressed in color, furnishings, and décor will also add harmony and a dynamic quality to your environments!

Patti's scope of practice includes,
Outside the Southern Vermont area Patti has worked with clients in -
An old man had a habit of early morning walks on the beach. One day, after a storm, he saw a human figure in the distance moving like a dancer. As he came closer he saw that it was a young woman and she was not dancing but was reaching down to the sand, picking up a starfish and very gently throwing them into the ocean.
“Young lady,” he asked, “Why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?”
“The sun is up, and the tide is going out, and if I do not throw them in they will die.”
“But young lady, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it? You cannot possibly make a difference.”
The young woman listened politely, paused and then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea, past the breaking waves, saying, “It made a difference for that one.”
'Feng Shui practice allows each one of us to contribute to making an energetic difference in the worlds we each inhabit no matter how big or how small that expression is!" -Patti Newton
