If you have been under a rock then you probably don't know that I have been dabbling in the mysterious arts of Feng Shui personally, with the help and gentle guidance of Carole Provenzale, a few e-books, and some paper books trying to find a starting point of incorporation.
And as some of you know...my funny bone led to believe that if I followed this path, my home would turn into a Chinese restaurant. A light bulb went off and I thought I could take on the challenge of upgrading the trinkets and bobbles and superstitious behaviors with a decorator's eye and I have managed with some finesse, acceptable replacements for myself.
As I was dancing along the feng shui path of laughter and confusion, I befriended Carole or she befriended me, whichever the case...I am certain she has prevented some unforeseen casualties I was in the midst of creating for myself and took me on as a personal challenge for herself (now that I have gotten to know her better, she did not need another project). But she reached out to me I have done every little thing she has told me to in blind faith and just for the pleasure of learning something new. I am a strong believer in 'learning is in the doing' so how perfect was this new adventure for me.
In no way did I expect the coming events.
I was told to plant a tree, not just any tree but an evergreen, in the wealth sector of my property. I was to follow specific instructions on colors of mulch and ribbons with no leeway. I made sure that the tree was planted right where it was supposed to go before I went to Seattle August 4th for a week. This is where it starts getting good...
While in Seattle and busy with other interests, I returned home to my computer and what did I find? I had more sales that week than any other week since I began my web business two years prior. Could this be a direct result of the MONEY TREE? Woohoo I thought, this is really fun. I shared my excitement with family and friends and I go the proverbial grin and a nod like yuhuh. Carole knew! She was not surprised AT ALL. She was happy and ready to take the next step.
Oh, it doesn't stop there! August sales increased 25% over any other month, ever. OK, still could be coincidence, timing, bound to happen kind of surge. Could be that home staging is catching on and everyone is wanting forms and instructions? Could be a natural progression of 'things'? Sure...thats fine.
Nope! It doesn't stop there...this week is not over yet and my sales are greater for one week than 90% of my monthly totals. Yuhuh, now we're talking. What did I work on last week with my extremely profitable feng shui consultant? You want to know, don't you! Well, I will tell you that began working on my HELPFUL PEOPLE sector and I mean barely scratching the surface.
Being the sales person that I am, and I am not trying to sell you anything here...just sharing the joy and shock, my feng shui consultant paid for herself in the first 6 weeks of her consultation and I am talking about we have just scratched the surface! Did I say that already? Let me say it again...we have just scratched the surface. Now this is not going to happen to everyone the same way and maybe everything will go back to 'normal' but what if it doesn't! What if it just gets better and bigger and brighter? Other aspects of my life not mentioned here are humming along too!
Oh, I have got to calm down. I suspect there will be more to come! Moral of the story? Sleep in peace because your blessings are forever coming to you.
