When I first discovered Feng Shui I fell in love with this art, but I also felt overwhelmed and confused.
To make sense of all the information I came across, I started making charts on a notepad.
I put together nine major things that needed to be done in a home for good Feng Shui, and I separated them into sets of three. One set for the architecture, one set for the interior design and one set for the furniture.
What I Didn’t Know
What I didn’t know at the time was that the motif of “nine steps” was used repeatedly in ancient Chinese architecture and in sacred ceremonies to connect Heaven and Earth – to bring Heaven to Earth.
I didn’t know, at the time, that Feng Shui acts over three levels of reality – Heaven, Earth and Humankind.
Heaven is related to thoughts, humankind to emotions and earth to physical action.
Unknowingly, I had tapped into knowledge from ancient Chinese philosophy by coming up with 9 steps, separated into three groups.
In the next few weeks I’ll be explaining more about all of this, but for now, all I want you to remember is that there are three levels of existence, what they are and what they mean for you, as a person, and for the home. Watch the video to learn (or read the transcript below.)

Three Levels and Nine Steps to Feng Shui
VIDEO 1 TRANSCRIPT:
At Feng Shui for Us™, we use the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® System.
The Nine Steps to Feng Shui® System is a method to learn and practice Feng Shui that always works to create Dream Homes and Happy Lives.
We organize nine principles of natural laws in relationship to the numbers they symbolize, and we correlate them with nine things to do in the home, which are The Nine Steps to Feng Shui®.
We separate these nine steps into groups of three to associate them to what in ancient Chinese philosophy are called the Three Levels of Reality, which are Heaven, Earth, and Humankind.
Heaven is associated with Thoughts, Earth with Actions, and Humankind with Emotions.
We do three things for the Earth level of existence, that has to do with Architecture.
There are another three things we do for the Humankind level of existence, that has to do with Interior Design.
And we have another three steps that correlate with the Heaven level of existence, associated to Furniture.

Your Homework for Video 1
Answer these questions in the comments below:
What was your introduction to Feng Shui? How did you first discover it?
Tell us about the first time you ever heard about Feng Shui. Was it a book, a link from a friend, or something you watched on TV?
Everything You Believe to Be True About Life is Expressed in Your Home
You affect your home and your home, in turn, has an effect on you. You establish a feedback loop with your place.
The feedback loop may be positive or negative, but it’s never neutral.
Feng Shui – applied the right way – gives you control over what your home tells you, and whether your home is your supportive partner or a constant drain.
Let the home take care of you by applying the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® System with Moni.
My first exposure to Feng Shui was an introductory talk that you presented in Davenport , IA.
I didn’t know that was your first exposure. What made you want to show up for the presentation?
What was your introduction to Feng Shui? A friend told me about it. I attended a class and didn’t stop taking classes for 3 years…lol. I learned directly from teachers. I did not read books about it until I could not attend classes anymore. Since then I have read a number of books, but prefer to learn from teachers.
