I've talked to a feng shui consultant over the phone to inquire about performing an audit of my home. This person said she only charges US$300 for a bungalow house, but that the materials I may have to buy might run up to about $300-400. She also said that I need to prepare meal for lunch (any kind) so we can all eat and celebrate after she finishes with the audit. I told her I'll call right back and give her my decision whether I want to go through with it. I NEVER called back. With the amount of money I'm shelling out for her fee and her materials, I don't believe I need to feed her. What a rip-off! Im glad I found this great site about fengshui. Thanks Cecil and Robert.

Thanks for taking the time to share with us your Feng Shui encounter. I am very glad that you have benefited from information on this website

In the Far East, (as I am more familiar with this area) Feng Shui Masters normally perform Feng Shui audits only. If a house is found to need certain `fixes', he/she would then recommend the householder on what to purchase.

The reason for this is obvious, so that there is no conflict of interests (in him/her wanting to do a Feng Shui audit and selling you Feng Shui materials. So far, like you, personally I have reservations about this type of Feng Shui audit. But I am aware, this is widely practised in the West so not sure if this is the norm? Have any users here done a similiar Feng Shui audit of this nature?

To share with you, for a FS audit, we normally do here is to first go to the home or office to do a survey. Then there is a second trip to visit the homeowner and provide him with detalied advice. Alternatively, if the location is far away, the survey can be carried out and the final analysis provided to the recipient through courier and a briefing would be conducted afterwards.

The good news is that as more and more of Feng Shui is `opened' to the West, I think many Western FS practioners are beginning to understand and apply landscape Feng Shui especially on the Dragon (on the East) and Tiger (on the right) etc. Plus more are beginning to rely less on `intuitive' form of Feng Shui but rather traditional Feng Shui such as Pillars of Destiny and Flying Star:)

...Keep up the Great Work!... Cecil Lee Cecil Lee support@geomancy.net - Feng Shui at Geomancy.Net" I read about some exceptional experience with Feng Shui, I have my fair share of unpleasant experience with the so called Feng Shui expert , who visited my apartment and advice of various changes. To be fair with him, there were some improvement in my family life particularly my wife and son. The main problem with the expert is the unwillingness to share his knowledge , not even to paying customer ! When the consultation period was over, it is even more difficult to extract anymore Feng Shui knowledge from him. I have paid quite a few hundreds and all I get are instructions without explanation. I have no idea which "house" I belong, what is my "bai zi" , where are the good direction etc. I have read a few books by Lillian Too on DIY feng shui but I am always doubtful whether it is the right interpretation and whether I have applied correctly. Having found this site was a blessing because now I can have someone to guide me along.

Please keep up the great work. " Ang Jen
