Summary

Summary

This is an introductory, yet detailed handbook that communicates the essence of Feng Shui in plain language and images that contemporary Americans can easily understand and put to work immediately.

Mitchell helps readers grasp the ABC's of Feng Shui, while showing simple ways to read and shape the invisible energy in home and office to manifest success and abundance, find and maintain loving and nurturing relationships, and enjoy true happiness and well-being.

Hundreds of practical tips, suggestions, and insightful stories and life lessons are included to offer guidance to implement the energy of Feng Shui in daily life. Readers will learn about a basic device for mapping the environment called the Bagua and how to change problem zones into life affirming zones of opportunity by moving furniture, making repairs, eliminating clutter, installing mirrors, adding more and better lighting, and performing rituals for clearing stale and stagnant energy.
