According to Andrew Handley’s article on listverse.com The 10 Surprisingly Brutal Facts about Dragonflies, the dynamics of capturing an object in mid-air are staggeringly complex, so much so that it’s usually something that’s only done by animals with complex nervous systems, like seagulls, or humans. To intercept something moving with its own velocity, you have to be able to predict where it will be in the future. When researchers began studying dragonflies in 1999, they found that rather than “track” their prey—follow it through the air until they caught up with it—they would actually intercept it. In other words, dragonflies ensure a kill by flying to where their prey is going to be.
What in the world does this have to do with feng shui? Well, a good feng shui consultant’s goal is to intercept a client’s life while it is moving in the wrong direction related to his/her intentions. If you are my client, after a meeting with you where my very unique and comprehensive questions are answered, I can identify what’s going on in your life and why you get stopped by road blocks in life. Feng Shui consultants intercept and, instead of flying to you like a dragonfly would to their prey, they open pathways for you that provide a new and exciting direction for you to travel.
Handley says, “Dragonfly eyes are incredibly advanced. They have 30,000 individual facets that blow other insects completely out of the water. Each facet, creates its own image, and the dragonfly brain has eight pairs of descending visual neurons to compile those thousands of images into one picture. It’s more like a human having 10,000 to 30,000 photoreceptors spread out across the retina.”
A scientific feng shui practitioner from the Feng Shui Institute of America has eyes that see many facets of a client’s physical environment that tells a story of “why” a client isn’t happy with where decisions have taken her. We compile the multiple images we gather via the answers given by the client along with pictures of the space and are then able to make a decision to correct the trajectory of a persons intentions.
And it gets even crazier; dragonflies have visual senses that would be considered superpowers by any human standards. Many times while in the field I’ve been asked if I was psychic. No, I’m not. I have developed all of my five my senses over past 20+ years enabling me to read an environment in keen detail. In the FSIA certification course, students are taught to read spaces and the symbols and icons within them, as well as placement of these by clients. It all tells a story about the person in the place.
What does your space say about you?
