Fast Feng Shui for Prosperity
8 Steps on the Path to Abundance
By Stephanie Roberts, Lotus Pond Press

The modern practice of feng shui is based on the premise that certain areas of your home impact specific aspects of your life. When the spaces in your home that govern your finances are cluttered, stagnant or missing from your floor plan, it can be difficult to attract and hold on to money. Poor feng shui can also lead to increased arguments and miscommunication, affect your reputation at work, and hinder your personal growth—all of which may contribute to financial difficulties. Feng shui practiced in this way works from the outside in: by improving the chi of our external environment we aim to improve our financial experience, whether in subtle or dramatic ways.

Feng shui also recognizes that we ourselves are the most powerful factor in our space. In order to create lasting improvement in our financial circumstances, we need to create an inner environment (thoughts, feelings, and beliefs) that supports our long-term prosperity, rather than leading—as it so often does—to over-spending, under-earning, and ever-increasing debt. This is feng shui practiced from the inside out: by uncovering inner blocks to prosperity and embracing key lessons from the ba gua (the feng shui energy map), we empower ourselves to experience abundance in all aspects of our lives.

This title is due to be published Sept. 6, 2005.  You may place a pre-publication order.  Your credit card will not be charged until we ship the book to you.

Feng Shui For Skeptics
Real Solutions Without Superstition
By Kartar Diamond

Although feng shui became trendy in the 1990's, it is still misunderstood by many Westerners. Most books on the subject are filled with inaccuracies that portray feng shui as nothing more than placebos and symbolic gestures.

Kartar Diamond's Feng Shui for Skeptics: Real Solutions Without Superstition, explains a complex subject in a user-friendly way. It begins with an overview of feng shui as a metaphysical earth science. Diamond discusses clearly how it affects your health and well being. She details how shapes and architecture have predictable impact on people with interpretations of dozens of design concepts.

Chapter 5 offers a series of fascinating case studies, including the Divorce House, the Creative House, the Crime House, the Crazy House, the Infertile House, the Romance House, and the Wealth House. Additional chapters describe how accidents, specific health problems and sleep disturbances can be a result of a problem environment. Also covered is the origin of so many misconceptions and conflicting theories.

The Feng Shui Matrix
Another Way to Inherit the Earth
By Kartar Diamond

The Feng Shui Matrix: Another Way to Inherit the Earth gives out meditation techniques to help the average person actually see the chi (energy) which we normally are not aware of. Readers learn how to properly draw a floor plan and take a careful compass reading. This is crucial in order to implement all the remedies.
The book is focused on dispensing ways to help readers make money and enhance relationships. In the chapters I Spend, Therefore I Am and What's Love Got to Do With It?, Diamond shows how bad feng shui can sabotage our ability to save money or maintain relationships.

The most remarkable chapters contain insight into the 72 different house types that exist throughout perpetuity as well as guidelines for using the best spaces in newer constructions.

Diamond draws from her formidable experience and remains true to her preference for using practical and inconspicuous solutions. There is no mention of using superstitious Chinese placebos so commonly promoted in other books
