I am drawn to a space that feels good. In high school, I would delight in the positive feeling of success and satisfaction after I cleaned and rearranged my bedroom. I did not call it Chi or even energy then, but I had unknowingly tapped into the essence of Feng Shui. I was co-creating with the Universe! My quest as an adult was to find out how I could re-create that feeling for myself and my family. This search eventually led me to Feng Shui.
I bought many books and read and studied on my own for many years. I incorporated Feng Shui principles in my own home but it wasn’t until I had a clairaudient experience that I began to take this path a little more seriously. In my car, driving home by myself, I heard the words “Feng Shui” spoken out loud. It was so clear that I thought someone was actually sitting in the backseat of my car. When I got home, I decided without delay that I would become a certified practitioner.
That was 2006, and I was fortunate to be able to train with Master Teacher, Cindy Garreton, who was certified by Denise Linn, creator of Interior Alignment® and Intuitive Feng Shui. Denise’s school offers a Feng Shui and Space Clearing system that embraces a holistic, intuitive approach bringing together the best of the mystical traditions of the East and the practical modern methods of the West. Cindy’s knowledge and training was magical and I experienced firsthand how potent space clearing can be.
In 2016, I re-certified with Tisha Morris through her Earth Home Feng Shui certification course. Her school incorporates the Black Hat Sect of Tantric Buddhist Feng Shui, which was the first school of Feng Shui taught in the Americas in the 1970s. This school is based on the teaching of Grand Master Lin Yun, and integrates traditions from other cultures, including Buddhist and Tibetan teachings and shamanism. It also uses practices from psychology, intention, and Jungian concepts. Tisha’s understanding and demonstration of the subtlety of energy fields in a space, and how to correct/change the interior to enhance the chi, was extremely valuable.
About this same time, I discovered stone medicine. On a whim, I took a course online titled How Stones Communicate, by Asia Suler. It was an introductory course and I found myself completely drawn to the energy of stones. Soon after, I sought out and signed up for two more online courses on the Fundamentals of Stone Medicine and Making Stone Elixirs, taught by Sarah Thomas. I immediately saw a connection between gemstone energy and Feng Shui principles and envisioned a beautiful way to bring this powerful earth energy into the grasp of anyone who wants more from their life. Thus, I created Dancing Spirit Gemstones – offering gemstone tools designed with the intention of doubling-down on achieving the changes you desire. I have completed my Level 2 certification in Chinese Stone and Crystal Medicine with Sarah Thomas’ school, Clarity Stone Medicine.
