ABOUT MAUREEN AND LUMINOUS SPACES
Hi! Thanks for visiting my website. I am the author of Creating Luminous Spaces: Shift the Energy of Your Home and Ignite Your Personal Power! to be published in Spring 2018 by Red Wheel/Weiser. I am also certified feng shui practitioner and founder of the professional certification training program, Re-Nature Feng Shui. I have been practicing since 2005, but I have worked with energy since I was a child.
Around when I was around eleven, I became an environmentalist and an astrology student. My father had died and I guess that I hadn't realized that these two areas were aspects of the same thing: I craved an understanding that there must be a meaningful connection between myself and the greater cosmos. That I was part of the whole.
These interests became passions – passion for connecting with divine energy as well as the Earth. As above, so below.
At that same time in my life, I became more aware of energy and other spiritual subjects. And since then, I have been a student, soaking in all I can about the world’s indigenous religions and spiritual practices, as well as astrology, geology, psychology, quantum physics and architecture.
Many years later I found the path of feng shui and a chance to study Eastern philosophy. It has fulfilled my desire to bring all of my life's interests into one comprehensive discipline. Everything that I loved and admired was active and alive in this amazing practice of feng shui!
I found that everything has energetic vibrations and interacts and impacts everything else. Change is constant and has somewhat predictable patterns. And learning about feng shui can provide great wisdom on the inner workings of our lives.
At last I was able to learn profound insights to help myself as well as others with their personal energy, and their home and work environments.
And then came my discovery of a book by Richard Louv, The Last Child in the Woods. (Just hearing the title struck a deep cord in my soul). This book encapsulated all that I had been feeling my entire life: Today's world – nearly always portrayed as heading toward a desolate apocalypse – requires us to make some profound changes in our way of being. Technology has developed at such a rapid pace that we lost our contact with the natural world. And in order to establish any sort of "balance and harmony" in our modern lives, we must connect to nature. This has become my mantra!
Empowered and inspired by this book, I realized how feng shui is actually a perfect path to help others tap into that peace in their lives. For me, Feng Shui’s wisdom is a true path to consciousness and caring for the Earth as well as all its beings.
This idea is present in the Taoist proverb:
Living in harmony with the Earth brings good fortune."
I feel very fortunate that I am able to continue to learn and grow in my full purpose as well as help others do the same. I help my clients regain a sense of harmony and joy in their lives through:
- feng shui in the home and work space,
- understanding themselves and loved ones through the Five Natural Elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water
- the I-Ching (a tool to help gain wisdom in making decisions)
- and sacred space clearings and blessings
- geomancy and geopathic stress analysis (using dowsing) to help promote harmony in the environment
I look forward to working with you! I offer a Free 30-minute call to assess how I may be able to help you in your life. Please reach out. I would love to hear your story.
