There’s a powerful fusion between the arts and wisdom of Feng Shui and Geomancy. The underlying principles are not only similar, but both rely on the energy fields that make up everything, a magnetic force if you will.
In many cases, Feng Shui is the first step to understanding energy and placement in the home which flows into your daily habits, life, and expansion of positive energy flow. Then, Geomancy takes you on a journey of discovering the power and healing of the land, past, your ancestors, and the continuation in awareness of your surroundings.
This influential yet natural merger can shift your perspective, believe me Beloved, it completely changed mine many years ago. To understand both of these energetic teachings, let’s take a look at what they both mean individually…
What is Feng Shui?
Feng Shui is an ancient, traditional art of energy, shifting space, and becoming aware of your surroundings. Quantum physics proves that everything is made of energy, and that energy acts and reacts based on other energies. There are different types of Feng Shui, I practice Classical Feng Shui. In classical Feng Shui, we shift our lives with sacred practices and scientific remedies, creating positive energy flow.
We rely on the shape of the home, the home’s birth cycle, alignment and the home’s energetic blueprint (to name a few) to create a positive energy flow in the home. Every single suggestion is customized to the person living there. Feng Shui has certain guidelines that should be followed, but with the help of remedies, we can adjust a home to a harmonious flow without buying new furniture or redecorating the entire house. Everything is personalized and intimate in this exchange.
Feng Shui has been around for thousands of years because it works wonders, you will find from the highest rated companies like Dreamworks to the suburban household using these ancient practices because they work. When putting Feng Shui remedies into practice, it’s not just about moving around furniture (although that’s a part of it) but it’s looking towards the elements in Feng Shui, found in nature, and balancing each out to its own significance in the space.
Feng Shui develops a potent appreciation of our environment and the impact it can have on our lives. It presents a deeper understanding of why something is happening and what we must do to fix it. It realigns our energies and reintroduces harmony to the Chi in the home, office, or space it’s being implemented in. We spend over 80% of our time indoors, whether that’s at home, in the office, or even when we’re sleeping. It’s necessary to create a loving, harmonious, and uplifting space to come home to.
When energy or Chi can’t flow through a home, it can cause health issues, relationship tension, work stagnation, and financial lack. Feng Shui is like yoga or acupuncture for the home. It brings remedies for all aspects of life. Bringing in Feng Shui Remedies, like salt water cures or perhaps financial aids like wealth vases can instantly affect your health, wealth, and relationships.
I’ve seen real estate agents sell properties before they could get the paperwork ready because they’ve learned to implement Feng Shui remedies in these homes. Healers use Feng Shui to create a continuation of healing and recovery for their patients/clients, a longer-lasting treatment due to the balance of energy.
Feng Shui is a beautiful relationship between healing and transformation, focusing on awareness of the self, environment, and the connection among the energy. I’ve practiced classical Feng Shui for over 20 years, taught students from around the world, and helped families create the home they deserve, often with what they already have.
What is Geomancy?
Geomancy and Land Healing were used in all kinds of shamanistic cultures, being weaved into the understanding of all early cultures. People knew how to listen to the land, looking at the physical aspects of landscapes but also listening and responding to the non-physical, cosmic voice.
Geomancy uses energy forces to connect people to their environments, both the inner and outer. The earth, the soil, and the land tell stories through energy lines, with Geomancy we use divination tools and ceremonies, dowsing rods, and other dowsing tools to map geographical features. This gives us an indication of what the land’s biography has to say, where healing needs to take place and what areas we need to clear. If you’d like to learn more about dowsing click here.
Dowsing isn’t a modern concept, although it can be used in modern-day rituals. Geomancy, Dowsing, and Land Healing have been around for centuries, included in cave paintings, Egyptian sketches, Chinese etchings, and history books throughout the world. It’s all connected, and because the results are real and undeniable, it will continue to live on.
Geomancy relies on a foundation of lay lines, energetic lines embedded into the earth and its core, it analyzes geopathic stress and geomagnetic forces of the globe. Like Feng Shui, Geomancy and Land Healing focus on connection with energy. Connecting with the land, the ancestors, and often to our own detriment, we connect with the trauma and pain of the past. With the guides provided in Geomancy training, you’re able to access these troubled areas, so that you can find the hidden importance and much like Feng Shui — remedy it.
When we’re not connected to the land, we lose parts of ourselves, we lose the wisdom that comes with stories from the past and we lose the ties to our ancestors. We lose the voice of nature, the true calling of the land, and all her influences. Amid this disconnect, we often feel numb and dissociation takes place in these moments.
This is why it’s important to look at nature, take readings of the land and implement remedies accordingly.

The Fusion of these Ancient Arts
Both Feng Shui and Geomancy rely on the same principle, energy lines, and energetic flow. Both act as acupuncture for their respective environments, where the most prominent nerves (energetic lines) are pinpoints of healing and release.
In Feng Shui, energy is changed, shifted, and balanced out throughout the home and in doing so, remedies are placed that influence your entire life.
In Geomancy, you read the land by dowsing, divining, and reading the results, connecting with the word of the land, and then implementing remedies through rituals. Once the land you live on is healed and deeply connected to you, you become more in tune with all forms of energy around you.
Now, Feng Shui doesn’t end with your home, it’s incorporated into every aspect of your life. Once you view energy as everything around you, above and below you, inside you, and everything that you give and receive, it changes your perspective on everything. You realize that the exchange, balance, and imbalance of energy can always be altered (good or bad) in some way, shape, or form.
As much as Feng Shui becomes a lifestyle, there is an expansive journey ahead when uncovering generational trauma in the land, and how it’s affected crops, construction, and growth that Geomancy provides.
We use the guidance of our ancestors, guides, angels, and spirits to bring healing and closure to that pain — which directly affects the home and lives attached to that land, with positive energy.
Imagine a home built on land that unwillingly acted as a stage for battle, death, and destruction. Centuries later, a new family is being raised there, a new home, new energy that’s affected by the past that they had no part in. This could lead to unwanted spirits visiting, health and relationship challenges, financial problems and much, much more. Even with Feng Shui remedies in place, that family would need to talk, connect and heal the land they now live on in order to prosper fully.
In Feng Shui, when fighting, divorce, death, financial troubles, or other challenges occur in a home (even if not by the current residence) then we would space clear using Sage, Sound, Palo Santo, and other clearing tools. Followed by the use of remedies to counteract the negative energy left behind. This can be done at any time and is highly recommended for any home.
The concept of both Feng Shui and Geomancy being used in unison gives a sense of freedom and true cleansing to the home, land, and environment. When both are incorporated, you’ll find the healing is deeper and more intimate than ever. When you Feng Shui a home but you don’t heal the land it sits on, it won’t have as much support, nor would it have the full effect of harmony in the home.
Healing and closure is a completely natural request from the soil, elements, and Spirit that has given us so much and received very little in return. Once connected to Mother Nature, to the land, and becoming consciously and intentionally aware of all energy forces, it’s practically second nature to listen to the land.
Listening to the trees’ movement, the wind’s song, the land’s tears, and the soil’s stories. This is taught in Feng Shui too because to flow with the balance of elements- we need to observe them in nature first. Connecting with them in their organic forms.

What are the benefits of adding Geomancy to your Feng Shui Services as a consultant?
As a Feng Shui consultant, you will integrate the energetic fields of the Bagua map, have a working knowledge and understanding of the Flying Stars and become good friends with ancient remedies. With these tools, you create a symphony of balance in your client’s home, allowing their spaces to reflect positive energy and remedy all the negative energy.
In my over 20 years of working in Feng Shui, meeting extraordinary souls along the journey, I’ve seen many art forms being incorporated with Feng Shui. From yoga practices to sound healing, nothing so far has been more powerful of a fusion than Feng Shui and Geomancy.
When adding Geomancy and Land healing to your services, you’re broadening the spectrum of healing, a divine weaving of positive energy intertwined with patterns of transformation. It allows you to work deeper with the ancestors, and the past and draw the positive energy from that into the present.
As you continue your career in Feng Shui, an awareness of connection and the continuation of that in your life, your client’s life, homes, and land will become so prominent that it’s unnatural to ignore it.
When incorporating Geomancy in your Feng Shui services you’re merging the physical with the non-physical world to create union — in doing so, instigating a ripple effect of balance. You’ll look at the Flying Stars less as numbers on a map, but as real factors in nature, flowing and thriving in interdependent ways.
Geomancy creates an unlimited friendship between you and the earth, spirits, and beyond. It expands your services to deep, internal healing that walks hand in hand with the transformative remedies of Feng Shui.
With the two combined- your perspective changes entirely because you realize everything is energy and what you allow within your field, consciously or subconsciously can feed or starve your prosperity. When you do consultations as a Feng Shui expert, you can further assess the land and other underlying issues the home might be suffering from which gives your client a full-on service.

Geomancy may seem separate, but it’s just a continuation of the principles and results of Feng Shui. A deepening connection with the land, a strengthened union, and an understanding of your ancestors, lineage, and past. It provides a portal to healing that transforms the soil you stand on, the foundation houses are built on and the energy the home contains.
How can I implement this fusion in my life?
With the continuation of awareness and certainty in the fact that everything is made up of energy, we’re fortunate to gain access to artforms, lifestyles, and influences that can shift energy with minor changes. If you’re interested in either Feng Shui or Geomancy, or you’re a certified Feng Shui expert, I invite you to open yourself up to both of these teachings.
From what we can remember until now, we’ve taken energy from nature, we’ve stolen and colonized land that doesn’t belong to us, and we’ve reaped abundance that wasn’t ours to partake in. We’ve allowed our greed and ego to form a barrier between us and nature.
We need to take a few steps back and acknowledge that this happened, and then reflect on how we can change this cycle. We need to heal the land. We need to hear its song.
I invite you to:
- Go on walks, connect the soles of your feet to the earth
- Be observant of nature and her seasons
- Be like a child, truly connected and present in every moment, taking time to appreciate every moment of newness
- Connect with your ancestors and ask them for guidance
- Listen to the land and ask the land what healing is necessary
- Give more than you take. Ask the land, the flowers, and the animals what can you take and what is not yours to receive
- Practice constant gratitude. A grateful heart is too full to be filled by worry
- Listen to your own body, stress can often be a symptom of the disconnect
- Create balance in your home by implementing remedies and following the seasons of nature herself
- Strengthen your intuition by listening when it speaks – read this blog for guidance.
- Lay in a bed of flowers, leaves, or even sand, speak to nature, and listen to her words in return.
Having an environment that supports inner work and inner healing is powerful and influential to those around you. Whether it be your children, your spouse, your co-workers, or your clients, everyone can sense the energy that you carry. Being aware of the energy in your home and the land you live on is truly transformational to your healing and journey into awakening.
I truly hope that this article will provide you with the understanding that connection, harmony, and healing are the common ground both Feng Shui and Geomancy are built. These teachings are an intertwined thread to weave balance and alignment into life, into generations before and after us.
Combined, these teachings deepened our understanding of the spiritual DNA of energy, where it came from, how it formed to be and how it has the power to alter and change everything around it.
