Editorial Reviews

Review

"Books like Feng Shui Your Life usually languish on coffee tables, picked over like so many hors d'oeuvres. But this one is more than just a pretty face. It's a practical, inspiring roadmap to clearing clutter from your life, and the first on Feng Shui I've seen that isn't just for people who can afford to throw out their broken things and buy new ones. It is, in other words, a helpful basis for true change." -- Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times Book Review

This book is an excellent beginner's guide to Feng Shui. It covers the bagua, and gives excellent tips on how to energize your space with things you already have. It also gives a basic space clearing technique. I recommend this book.

I was very pleased to have found this wonderful book. I have read many books on Feng Shui in the last 2 years, and this one was definitely one of the very best ! With lovely pictures, a brilliantly organized -- and easy -- description of the ba-gua and how to use it, and an intelligent, simple, solution oriented approach to lifting the energy/increasing the harmony/blessings of each area/room of your house and garden.
Thoroughly enjoyable reading. The kind of book that you keep. And read again and again. This is a great guide to Feng Shui. It takes away much of the contradictions and confusion presented by other people, yet does not leave out a single important point. Better yet, all the solutions are easy to do !
Jayme Barrett will be someone whose seminars I would attend, and who I would definitely seek a feng shui consultation for in my home !

This book is so much more than placement of furniture or painting your door red. You will want to read it from cover to cover many times. Ms. Barrett is truly an inspired and gifted writer bringing to her audience a way to `Feng Shui Your Life'. Bringing energy into your home and into your life is not a quick fix but a lifelong pursuit. The author gives us many tools to work with in our every day lives. To be able to connect to our energy with our intuition and our sacred spaces brings healing on all levels. This is a great reference, instructional and inspirational book that you will want to revisit many, many times. I am deeply appreciative of the guidance and encouragement I received. If you read this book, you will indeed be grateful for the positive changes you make in your life.

I first heard about feng shui from a woman who had been a physicist for eleven years, and then decided to become a feng shui practitioner. She found it to be totally consistent with the laws of physics. That made me interested in finding out more about it.

No one could explain it better than Jayme Barrett, who's beautiful book should be on everyone's coffee table! She makes feng shui simple and easy to apply to your home or office right away. Just simple realignment of objects and furniture can help you sleep better, have more harmony in your relationships, and help more money flow to you more easily and Jayme shows you how. In the 24-hour period after I installed a fountain in my wealth center, I received nearly $2500.

Jayme is a true transformational coach with years of professional experience, and her book is a real find!

20 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Matthew Reyes. Yoga Instructor on October 29, 2003
Format: Paperback
Within a month of owning and utilizing this book my wife and I have already had a couple of fortuitous experiences. Not only is this book a beautiful collection of transforming one's entire life, but the emphasis on the home is what called to me. Teaching yoga, I already know how people's bodies change with dedication, committment, and movement. But, upon putting to use even a few of Jayme's concepts, my and my wife's life has moved in external ways. After cultivating our "Wealth & Prosperity" center, I was paid handsomely to shoot & lead a yoga video... something I've never done. And the following week, when fitting our "Career" center with a fountain, candles, and making that space in our apartment feng shui'd, my wife was offered an opportunity to sing, (her creative talent), with a band that she loves. Two huge shifts in our lives. We're definately continuing to develop the other 7 centers of our home.... and see what happens next. I highly recommend this book, (and yoga - shameless plug for yoga), to create energetic breakthroughs. AND it's beautifully written, photographed, and packaged.

This is a beautiful book...it really is...the pictures themselves are totally and completely inspiring and worth the price of the book alone!

I got this book because I do believe that Energy is everything and everything is Energy and your home is a reflection of that One Energy. Is your house full of old clutter? It could be a reflection of the old emotional clutter you keep inside...is your house nice and perfect? You could be controlling and rigid in your approach to life.

I grew up in a house that was almost like a museum. It was filled with all sorts of pretty things, beautiful things, expensive things but we weren't allowed to touch anything. Sitting on the raw silk couches was especially forbidden unless there was company. This was all my dad's doing. In fact, when my mom was alive, our home was always a little bit on the bohemian side of things; a planter made out of an old coffee can, brightly colored throw rugs on hardwood floors, original artwork done by yours truly matted and framed by my mother, plates that didn't match around an old wooden table my dad had built with chairs found here and there. It was an odd, delightful mix but our home always felt cheerful and relaxing.

After my mom passed away, my dad threw out all this stuff that he now called "junk" and replaced it with Queen Anne furniture and Ethan Allen couches and replicas of famous art pieces. Sure, the end effect was beautiful...but it wasn't approachable...it was kind of like my relationship with my dad.

When I got my own place, an excessively large master bedroom I rented from a delightful couple, I returned to the Bohemian way of life.
