When Feng Shui Master, Dr. Baolin Wu first steps into a house, he takes an energy reading. He observes a child’s behavior while playing in a room of the house:
“If he is happy and willing to stay longer, playing away contentedly, then you know this is a good spot. If he cries or says he is scared, or if he obviously doesn’t want to be there, then you don’t want to be there either. If he asks for a drink of water or wants to go to the bathroom, that is bad sign as well. The place is not good.”
– Dr. Baolin Wu, author of Lighting the Eye of the Dragon: Inner Secrets of Taoist Feng Shui
The intuition works by paying attention to the subtle connection between things. If a co-worker spills coffee on the table in the break room while she’s talking about her new boyfriend — that’s the story within the story — you know that some kind of emotional outburst will occur in that relationship.
I witness this all the time when I am doing psychic readings: What happens in the reading is part of the reading.
I did a reading for a young woman seeking insight about her relationship. My neighbor decided to mow his lawn throughout the entire length of the reading. I was annoyed by the constant buzz of the lawn mower. Lawn mowers suggest aggravation and friction: communication that descends into arguments. How did her relationship go? Conflicts and an abrupt stop.
A client told me that her boyfriend left some food in the refrigerator and the refrigerator door open for a few days! She then asked whether he’d invite her to a special party that she really wanted to attend with him. Her story about the spoiling food in the refrigerator let me know “something stinks,” and to her disappointment, he didn’t ask her to the party.
A client asked me recently if she would get the job that she just interviewed for, “and how soon?” I could hear her dog running and playing in the house as she was talking with me. Like Dr. Wu’s child as barometer mentioned above, the dog gave us a solid clue about the outcome of her job situation. The playful movement of her dog suggested that not only would she get this job, she’d get a confirmation of the job offer soon. The interview, the job offer, and her start date all happened very quickly, within just a few weeks.
At your next meeting, listen to the story within the story, observe the energetic backdrop, and you’ll discern hidden meanings.
