Conversations and Consultations - Madison, Connecticut
Design Your Life is a consulting practice for home and business based on the ancient Chinese art and science of Feng Shui, pronounced “fung schway”. Feng Shui is a useful and powerful system used to design exterior and interior environments for home and business. Also known as the art of placement, the goal is to create a smooth flow of ch’i to create a sense of harmony and balance. New placements are made with intention in alignment with our life goals.

“Nothing is good or bad but thinking makes it so”…. but creating visible changes in one’s environment may produce instant change because an action has been taken. When things are out of sync in our lives, and a state of discomfort exists, there are many options available to enable us to find solutions and peace of mind, from medications to counseling with a trained professional to talking with an empathetic friend or family member. As sharing problems may be cathartic, relieve stress and provide insight, it is change in the situation that we seek. (more…)
Business success is a dream for many who still believe in the benefits of capitalism. One’s motivation toward entrepreneurship may have started with a lemonade stand or cashing out customers in a family business enjoying the jingle of coins or feeling paper bills adorned with our American Presidents. Volumes have been written about how to cultivate and achieve business success. However, few suggest that financial success may be attributed directly to your personal Feng Shui. The landscape features of the property on which you grew up, as well as the property you now occupy, home in which you live, door from which you leave to go to your place of business contribute greatly to one’s business success.

Adolescence is period of growth, discovery and experimentation. The teenage bedroom is an art form many parents may feel resembles a Jackson Pollack or Picasso. Access may be impossible, but parental hope and knowledge spring eternal, and just as the butterfly, the child they have been teaching and grooming will emerge as a unique and self-actualized young adult. The Bagua template used in Feng Shui, also known as The Nine Life Aspirations, may serve as a useful tool for teens to design their bedroom refuge according to their own dreams and aspirations.

I am pleased to announce the 4th printing of my first book now also available on Amazon.
“Designing a Happier Life – Feng Shui with Lurrae.”
Selected as a 2014 Eric Hoffer Book Award FINALIST
I took my first Feng Shui workshop in 1995. I knew immediately that I wanted to become a Feng Shui Consultant. In this, my first book, published October 2013, I share my approach to offering Feng Shui Consultations. I hope you will find my book easy to understand and a sensible method to take action on creating the changes you desire in your life. Applying common sense principles of Feng Shui will lead to a happier and more successful life. Using your personal environments as the template for the change you desire is very powerful. I wish you happiness, joy, harmony and balance in your life. Small changes in your personal space created with the intentions you desire, do and can make a big difference in how you feel. Please let me know if you find my book helpful. Would love to hear from you.
“In his or her life,
each person can take one of two attitudes,
to build or to plant.
Builders may take years over their tasks,
but one day they will finish what they are doing.
Then they will stop, hemmed in by their own walls,
Life becomes meaningless once the building is finished.
Those who plant suffer the storms
and the seasons and rarely rest.
Unlike a building a garden never stops growing.
And by its constant demands
on the gardener’s attentions,
It makes of the gardener’s life a great adventure.”
