Feng shui – the Chinese art of placement
An interview with Jan Cisek, London-based expert in feng shui by Susan Norman
When I first met Jan Cisek, feng shui expert, he cast his professional eye around my home and home office and made three recommendations: put a money plant in a particular position in the office for prosperity, put a headboard behind my bed for protection and security, and replace the bathroom mirror tiles (which were breaking up my energy) with a big mirror. He also told me to tidy up when I had time. I did all three major things the next day – and on the day after that was given a business opportunity which brought in £8000 over the next two months. I was impressed!
The tidying is a long-term project, but I have noticed that each time I clear, clean, decorate or reorganise an area of my home, positive changes seem to follow.
I decided it was time to know more, so I asked Jan for an interview.
Question: Feng shui is ‘the Chinese art of placement’. Jan, you’re from Poland, what makes you an expert in feng shui?
Jan Cisek: My clients, I suppose. Malcolm Gladwell says it takes 10,000 hours to become a world-leading expert – and I’ve done more than my 10,000 – over the last 30 years or so. I’ve had the opportunity to fine-tune the advice I give people and see what gives the most positive results.
