What’s Feng Shui?


Feng Shui, which translates to mean “Wind & Water”, is not a New Age religion nor is it a form of magic. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art that traces back thousands of years and is a method of assessing and improving the quality of one’s life through the study of energy flow in the environmental spaces where we live and work. What Feng Shui can do for your home or office is similar to what the study of Yoga can do for your breathing patterns and your body’s well being. There are many schools of feng shui, the two most common being compass and form schools.

Katy now uses the method taught in the Black Hat Sect (BHS) Tibetan Buddhist Feng Shui “form school” that involves locating 9 areas of the “bagua” in any space, which correspond to 9 essential aspects of one’s life (Career, Wisdom & Knowledge, Family & Health, Wealth, Fame & Reputation, Love & Relationship, Creativity & Future Projects, Travel & Helpful People, and Tai Ch’i). Katy will assess and make knowledgeable observations about your architectural structure and the placement of interior furnishings, correct use of color, symbols, and elements within the bagua framework and offer solutions to create balance and harmony of your ch’i (energy). Katy offers a full range of Feng Shui services including availability to travel to your location or to review your floor plans through the mail, advising on interior design choices, Space Clearing energetic residue, reviewing renovation and construction blueprints.

Katy Allgeyer (a.k.a. “Fishgirl”) was first introduced to the ancient Chinese practice of Feng Shui in early 1983 while on a business trip to Hong Kong. Traveling to the Far East over 99 times, Katy studied with Feng Shui masters in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Today, Katy has more than twenty years of Feng Shui expertise, which she blends with her highly developed intuitive ability, metaphysical shamanic healing methods, and formal art and design training that make her uniquely qualified to help people realign their environment to support their full potential.

One of the most confusing aspects of Feng Shui is that there are
different “Schools” / versions to choose from.There is the classical Feng Shui methodology which is traditionally most concerned with obvious external elements and surroundings such as shapes, furniture placement, and the importance of compass directions. All of these tangible factors impact the flow of ch’i.

Then there is the methodology that blends this “science” with mystical
knowledge and spiritual practice. Black Hat Sect Tibetan Buddhist Feng
Shui incorporates the physical elements of one’s surroundings (IE:
furniture placement, etc) and goes a step further to include the
intangible metaphysical aspects of energy flow (IE: how our own desires
and intentions can and do impact our environment).
