Residential Consultations

Whether you live in an apartment, home, cabin, or house boat (seriously – I have consulted for two!), my practical approach to Contemporary Feng Shui can help you make your home the comfortable and nurturing space that you desire. Initially, we review your life goals and see how the structure of your home relates to them. We then do a walk-through of the property, focusing on the entrance (where opportunities enter your space – or not), bedroom (where you marinate for a quarter to a third of your time), and the other areas, paying particular attention to the impact of the layout and of messages communicated by colours, images, and objects. While there will be a long list of suggestions at the end of the consultation, we make some changes in the moment to get the energetic ball rolling, creating a foundation on which later implementation of suggestions can build.

I suggest a starting time of 2 hours even for smaller spaces as there is a tremendous amount of detail that we can go into, and so a  consultation can with time increase in value exponentially because of the depth of insight that is gained and the number of changes that can be made. It is also worthwhile to do two sessions within the first month or two, to allow for changes to take place and another layer of suggestions to build on changes that have already been made.

Office Consultations

The space in which you work has a profound influence on how you conduct your business. Whether you have an office in a company building or at home, or even if you are in a cubicle, Contemporary Feng Shui can help you make the space both practical and comfortable on a number of levels. Everything that you need to do your business needs to be easily accessible, and the space needs to be well organized if you are to be productive. And yet just because you are at work doesn’t mean your space can’t be attractive and motivating: Scientific American Mind magazine recently reported on how work spaces that were personally tailored to suit workers’ character led to increased productivity. I have designed entire office spaces as well as individual offices and cubicles, with amazing results for the clients in terms of productivity and business goals met.

Storefront Consultations

One of the tenets of success for stores has often been said to be ‘Location, location, location.’ From a Feng Shui perspective, the location of the physical store and its environmental surroundings is one factor, but so is the location of everything in the store. What is the flow of traffic like outside? Are there any impediments to easily finding and entering the shop? What objects, colours, and placement inside the window and store encourage movement and circulation throughout the store? Is the cash desk easily visible and easily accessible? These are some of the considerations that a storefront Contemporary Feng Shui consultation will take into account. Maximize your store’s traffic and success with a fresh view of its ‘as-built’ structure and practical solutions to improve its overall functioning.

Online Consultations

While there are obvious benefits to working in the same physical location as the home, I have given many distance consultations that led to significant changes in the lives of the clients. From designing a home renovation in Tokyo to an office design in Doha, Qatar to a shop design in Bali to redecorating an apartment in Paris, I have helped clients worldwide make changes to their spaces and their life circumstances. One who had been unhappy with her work for months found herself with two competing job offers within a couple of weeks, while an entrepreneur whose home I helped restructure has seen their business increase exponentially ever since we started working together (and we continue to work together 9 years later).

With an accurate floorplan, photographs, and a video of the space, we can make significant changes that can  impact your personal and professional lives for the better. New technology and ancient art-science technology can work together wonderfully to help change the energy of a residence or place of business.

Testimonials

I highly recommend Mark. He is exceptionally talented, observant, and perceptive. I would not hesitate for a moment to send clients his way, and I hope to do so more in the future.

-Colin Kingsmill, Orascom Hotels & Development, Montenegro

Mark helped me cut through the mental clutter that was preventing me from growing my business and being more balanced in my life. By making a few small changes to my house and office I was able to see my business in a new light and I met with 2 potential new clients within two weeks. WIthin a month I received a financial windfall from an unexpected opportunity to rent my house for a movie. We moved out pretty much everything for the shoot but left the new jade plant in the money area that Mark had suggested. Of all the changes we discussed, new wooden hangers in all the closets have had a surprisingly big impact. Every morning when I get up I see an orderly array of clothes and instantly feel more professional. Looking forward to seeing what transpires next in my ongoing work with Mark!

-Andrew Barker, AJ Barker Design

Mark’s feng shui tips make sense from a practical and psychological point of view. After implementing them I have dramatically improved my office workspace and enjoy working at my desk.

-J. Amy Newman, Vancouver

Dear Mark, My husband had been very sick with ulcerated colitis & I had read a few Feng Shui books & made a few changes & things seemed to get better for a while. Then my Man ended up getting Non Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer – Aggressive B type – and our world became a series of chemo treatments. Then he was air-vacced to Vancouver for emergency radiation. While receiving his radiation treatment, Brian was infected with Staphylococcus aureus & he ended up in a life & death situation with one foot in heaven’s door & spent 7 weeks in hospital fighting for his life. After four months in Vancouver we came home to try to re-build Brian’s health. We took all of the necessary health steps we knew to help with his healing, and then we took it one step further and called you, Mark, for a home consultation. When you came to our home to do our consultation, you listened to what our needs were, and then you went to work making the necessary suggestions that would help our family in our quest for better health & Chi movement in our home. Your suggestions were everything from changing the paint colors in a couple of rooms & some of the accessories, to simply moving some pictures to different walls & changing the placement of some of our outside fixtures. After our home consultation with you, we made all of the suggested changes, including the paint colors, & it is with great joy that I write this letter many months later to say that there is genuinely more health & a greater overall peace & calmness in our home. Brian is doing absolutely awesome at this time & it is with a deep understanding as we have grown older that there will always be some things in our life that we cannot fix, change, or correct; however, for everything else there is Feng Shui. Mark, we will always be forever grateful to you for your part in our peaceful healing time. Feng Shui has been a wonderful adventure that should be part of everyone’s journey through life & we thank you once again for helping us find the answers in our search for health & calmness. We truly hope that our paths will cross again someday & we wish you peace & happiness always. Yours truly,

-Polly St Germain, Prince George, BC

Mark’s Feng Shui for the home was an amazing transformation for all areas of my life! He recreated my home into something that I loved to spend time in each and every day. Some of the changes that he made were simple yet profound. Other improvements, helped create a better balance in my life, helped me to break free of barriers in my career, physical fitness and overall happiness. He suggested cost effective additions while retaining my sense of personal style to create the most productive, flowing and warm space that I still receive compliments about!

-Ryan Lacey, Results Training and Conditioning, Vancouver

-Lisa Brown, Rhodes Wellness College

Mark has feng shui’d both my design studio and home office. Mark has an instinctual insight like none other. By applying Mark’s strategic and mathematically instinctive advice I have made changes to both my home and studio that have increased my annual revenue, provided me with much needed and timely extra and efficient help, and even flowered up my love life. I highly recommend that you hire Mark Ainley for his Feng Shui services and sign up for his Face Talk workshop right away.

-Margherita Porra, Arithmetic Creative inc, Vancouver

When I met Mark Ainley, I was struck by his fusion approach of the traditional art of Feng Shui, with a modern fresh feel. I knew this would be a good fit for myself and my clinic – blending an age-old medicine (Chinese Medicine) with modern times. Mark took the time to not only evaluate my entire space, but also address specific questions and concerns I had, while also incorporating personal preferences and goals. With his guidance and suggestions, I was able to transform my clinic into more than I could have imagined. I consistently to this day, receive several compliments about my clinic space. I cannot say enough how much I appreciate the work that Mark has done for my clinic. Mark is an expert at his art. His is able to bring complex concepts into a simple and easy-to understand approach. His ideas are fresh, he draws from a variety of sources and has great depth of knowledge. If you have ever contemplated arranging your personal or work space for better balance and productivity, whether it is placement, colours, shapes, etc., I recommend hiring the expertise, suggestions and fresh approach of Mark Ainley.

-Sonia Tan, Red Tree Wellness, Vancouver

After several attempts at working with the concepts of Feng Shui on my own (and getting nowhere) I decided to call Mark and ask him if he would come and guide me through my apartment, giving me ideas and suggestions to making changes that would support who I am and the direction I was looking at creating for myself in my life. I have to admit that although I was open to this I was a little nervous about having someone come into my home and guide me as to what I needed to do. As soon as Mark arrived I found that my nervousness was quick to leave. His excitement, enthusiasm, insight, and knowledge not only put me at ease but also really motivated me to be able to work with the changes and to want to. Any areas that I was a little skeptical of changing were given understanding – he allowed for me to be with where I was and what I was comfortable with making changes to. I found that this allowed for me to be a part of the process and for me to work at my own speed. With each change we made I could feel the energy starting to shift and in a matter of the couple of hours Mark worked with me I was aware of the difference in flow through out the apartment. Within a couple of days I was experiencing the ripples throughout my life – I had a job offer in the field of work I was working with creating for myself and I had started to touch the possiblity of a relationship with someone who I have since married, not to mention the over all energizing and flow of abundance that started to increase in my life. Of course it was no time at all before I made the other changes in the space that Mark had talked to me about. His ownership and certainty of Feng Shui played a huge role in me being able to give this to myself. I am very grateful to him and to what these changes supported me in bringing to my life.

-KAW, Salt Lake City, Utah

Mark, Thank you – I have used your Feng Shui suggestions in my home. My son let me change his room as well – “the Feng Shui Way”- this was my chant while he raised objections now and then. The results have been incredible! The changes we have noticed: Sleeping better; Improved Communication in all relationships; Business volume increase; Peaceful and calm house… we noticed this immediately, from the 1st night to within 4 days after as I write this. Blessings-xoxox
