Feng Shui consultant inspires with “Fun!” Shui
Lifestyle consultant Ellen Whitehurst
takes the mystery out of Feng Shui, the ancient knowledge for
achieving health, happiness and prosperity. She calls it “Fun!
It’s an approach that has worked well for
Whitehurst and her clients, and it’s one she will share
with visitors to the Hampton Roads Home & Garden Show at the
Hampton Roads Convention Center April 14-17. Whitehurst will bring
her wit and wisdom to the stage at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.,
Saturday, April 16, and Sunday, April
Asked to rank her health, happiness and prosperity,
Whitehurst said, “very happy with all three.” She
qualified that she is not shielded from adversity, however. “Every
human being has to go through challenges in order to grow from
the experience. I just feel confident as I go through them that
I have the tools to make them easier and more grace filled.”
Whitehurst’s name and company, Sacred Spaces
L.L.C., are synonymous with a “lucky lifestyle.” Through
programs, products and services, Whitehurst helps others implement
and integrate Feng Shui into their lives to achieve the “Three
Great Blessings of Feng Shui.”
Some of the tools used to affect good Feng Shui
in the home or office are wind, water, wood and fire, as well
as color and position within one’s living and work space.
However, according to Whitehurst, who is an active affiliate member
of the American Society of Interior Designers, Feng Shui is more
than a form of interior design. “It is a proactive tool
that can capture and manipulate the energy, or Chi, that is always
present to support our goals,” she said.
Whitehurst puts a contemporary spin on the ancient
practice that dates back 5,000 years. She stresses that not only
is Feng Shui fast acting and fun, it’s also easy. For those
seeking to enhance their careers or find jobs, her advice is easily
accessible on one of Monster.com’s online message boards,
as she is now considered virtual company’s “Feng Shui
Subject Matter Expert.”
Whitehurst began practicing Feng Shui 12 years ago.
Today, the Virginia Beach resident is an internationally known
lifestyles consultant, and an award-winning Feng Shui author and
speaker. She also is a popular guest on radio and television talk
shows, in The Virginian-Pilot and HR Monthly magazine, and with
such national media outlets as ABC News.
Recently, Whitehurst was signed to the prominent
William Morris Agency in New York to build her brand in a more
international venue. Her "ShortCuts" product line, including
"The Good Fortune Coin Cure," is now being carried nationally
by such stores as Nordstroms and Borders Bookstores. "Fun!"
Shui gifts and products designed and distributed by Sacred Spaces
also can be found in the famed New York City Trump Tower gift
shop, as well as on Feng Shui-inspired coffee cups sold by a major
Fortune 500 coffee company.
Whitehurst’s next venture includes a how-to
book on manipulating fortune and luck “really, really easily.”
“A lot of people think that luck just happens.
More than that, they think that it never happens to them. This
book will teach everyday things you can do to manufacture fortune
and luck into your life,” said Whitehurst.
And, that's about as fast, fun and lucky as
you can get!
