"My feng shui consultant, Jayme Barrett, has a wealth of knowledge. Her sense of humor and her practicality is what sets this book apart from others. She shares her beautiful sensibilities about how powerfully our thoughts and our words affect what we manifest in life. Most readers will be amazed at how, instinctively, they have always decorated their homes according to feng shui principles. This beautiful book will validate your own sensual instincts and teach you some wonderful new ideas as well."
--Mary Steenburgen, from the Foreword

Jayme Barrett, the feng shui consultant to the rich and powerful of Beverly Hills, has written the most comprehensive and life-changing book on the subject. Taking us on a personal tour of the homes she has transformed, Ms. Barrett explains the techniques she uses to create "positive space." Room by room, she illustrates the deeper purpose of every aspect of design; she demonstrates how the simplest adjustment--moving a plant from one corner to another--can make a world of difference in your daily mood and, ultimately, your life.

Feng shui, she observes, is not just about the spaces we occupy. It is a philosophy and way of life that begins with our spiritual awakening and rebirth. Once we use her regimen to cleanse ourselves of impurities of spirit, we can turn to the transformation of our environment and our lives.

Lush photography and hundreds upon hundreds of facts, ideas, tips, and suggestions--from her own experience and gleaned from the wisdom of the ages--take us ever closer to the revitalization of home, health, and spirit.

Please note that this NOOK Book is the first edition of Feng Shui Your Life

Editorial Reviews

Susan Salter Reynolds
Books like "Feng Shui Your Life" usually languish on coffee tables, picked over like so many hors d'oevres. 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.

I read a lot of feng shui books and websites, but I couldn't make feng shui - or my life - work for me. When I concentrated on Jayme Barrett's beautiful Feng Shui Your Life, I found clarity. This book is complete. Covering the depth and breadth of feng shui from the inside out, Jayme's thorough understanding of energy makes my efforts fun and amazingly enlightening. But best of all, it works! So I gladly decluttered the other books (and that silly money toad) and follow Jayme's teaching exclusively. I am thrilled with the daily insights as well as the infusion of revitalizing energy in my life. This is one of those rare, truly life-transforming books, and I'm a five-star fan! Thank you, Jayme, for bringing beauty and joy back to my life!

The book may be OK but your blood pressure will be elevated by the time it has loaded on the nook. it will not load on the older Nook's and is probably a better hard copy....

I purchased this book in January after living happily and comfortably in an almost empty apartment in Japan for a year and then returning home to a house filled with completely unnecessary clutter. I went from feeling free and energized and healthy and powerful (in Japan) to feeling overwhelmed and boxed in and stagnant and depressed (in my US home). My junk weighed me down and within a week I knew it would keep me from moving forward in my life. This book gave me the blueprint to begin transforming my home to be the graceful, welcoming, calming place I have always wanted it to be. (I took Jayme's BNU class this summer to learn some more and I will also recommend not just this class but BNU classes in general. Being a part of a class has helped me to get active in many areas of my life!) I have made a few simple enhancements to my home which cost me nothing and it is now a joy to wake up in the morning. My main activity so far has been the process of de-cluttering. To clear out the junk - the useless things with only negative memories that I kept due to some unexplained need to hang onto possessions - this process has freed me in a way I could not have imagined. This is a beautiful book - the photographs are gorgeous and the spirit of it is rejuvenating. Even if you only thumb through it from time to time it will inspire you. If you wish to go further it has the steps you can take with a bit of effort and an open heart. Thank you Jayme for challenging me to step out of my complacency and take charge of my life!

I enjoyed this Feng Shui book and was inspired to get rid of some clutter and add some plants and a water fountain as a result of the reading. I was able to incorporate some of the tips with my work as an interior designer. Really nice illustrations and well written.

I breezed through this book in a week in bits and pieces. It's such an easy read... but it is packed with great and extremely useful information. It covers the very basics and goes into very good detail, room by room. Loved it!

This book has changed my life. I bought the book because I wanted some home decorating ideas. The book turned out to be much, much more than that. It helped to understand why I have clutter in my life and how it has been hindering me from achieving my goals. Ever since I cleared the clutter from my home (which was hard because I'm a pack rat)and enhanced each of the centers, everything in my life has turned around. I can feel the positive energy flowing through my home. I obtained a good job opportunity without hardly trying my husband and I have shifted from the brink of separation to a real loving and understanding relationship money has been okay but that's because my kids' room is in my money center and they have a tough time keeping it clean my family life has been great and my home is a beautiful place I can be proud of. The suggestion of a manifestation board was a great idea. I wake up to it every morning, and I know why I have to get up and get going. Buy this book and Feng Shui your life as soon as possible.

As soon as I started implementing some of the principles in the book, clearing up my foyer of shoes, coats, and umbrellas; changing my dining room and living room around, adding fresh flowers and plants; plus I cleaned up and added a wind chime to my front porch. I even made sure to keep the bathroom door closed and toilet seats down…with four males in the family its not easy ;). Almost immediately stuff started happening: my daughter got a call from her boss about a promotion, my son who has been looking for a better job for months got an interview and was hired that same week for a lot more pay, my husband is finally receiving his much over due bonus! I can't wait to do the rest of the house and the outside of my home! I always believed that your home should feel like a sanctuary. I now have feng shui to make it happen. Is it a coincidence? I think not! Why not give it a try and find out! ;)

I am new to Feng Shui I saw this course, on BNU, and thought it might be interesting. I bought Jayme's book Feng Shui your life. What I found, in the book, far exceeded my expectations as a new comer to Feng Shui. Jayme has found a way, in her book, to demonstrate the mindset of Feng Shui. She brings it to live and makes it easy for you to bring Feng Shui into your life. It's as if she is reaching out from the book to touch you. The book is very attractively put together, it is done with style and grace in the Feng Shui methodology. I recommend this book to beginner or veteran, it has an energy of it¿s own that reaches out and touches you. Every page unfolds to reveal a world that has been waiting for you. Natalie - A Feng Shui're for Life thanks to Jayme and her wonderful book. Spreading Pink Light to all.

I highly recommend Feng Shui Your Life by Jaymee Barrett. I came upon this book when I took a Barnes & Noble University class led by Jaymee herself. This book is practical, easy to read, and easy to understand. Making the suggested subtle changes in your living space can completely change your home. The book also covers apartments and offices. The premise of the author is that you should love your living space and every (absolutely every!) thing in it. This book is a step by step guide to tackling your house (living space) one room at a time, to achieve the house of your dreams. It is also a very knowledgable and informative introduction into Feng Shui. Feng Shui Your Life is great for beginners, people wanting to learn more about Feng Shui, and for those who are searching for practical and successful cures and enhancements for their home.

I found this book through Barnes and Noble University and have enjoyed learning every aspect possible. I have always been curious about Feng Shui, but found many other books to be very confusing and hard to implement. Jayme's book, however, provided me with wonderful tools and has made it very simple to see which areas of my home need to be enhanced. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to get their homes and lives in order. I will definitely be using this book for many years to come! Thank you, Jayme!

I purchased this book when I signed up for Jayme's Feng Shui class right here at BNU. This is an elegant, eloquent, gentle book that really packs a whallop! From the first time you de-clutter a room you'll be hooked, but you'll have only just begun, as Jayme Barrett will also guide you on a feng shui odyssey for your soul. TAKE HER CLASS!

Finally, a Feng Shui book that is not only beautiful but practical. Feng Shui Your Life (Sterling, May 2003, $24.95) is probably the best book out there to give you not only a visual guide but also easy ways to energize your home or office. While the Author Jayme Barrett is billed as the ¿Feng Shui Consultant to the Stars¿ who has helped the rich and powerful of Beverly Hills, the book works off the principle that even the smallest décor budget can make some type of life changing living space enhancement. In fact, when I met Jayme during my recent trip to Los Angeles, she told me ¿My motto is that you should love every single thing in your home. You are in control of your house, and you need to create an environment that you feel good in.¿ The book takes an easy, non-compass look at the bagua (the energy center locations). And, photographer Jonn Coolidge has taken breathtaking photos displayed throughout this comprehensive yet easy-read book. As a weekly columnist at www.terrawellington.com and the one and only Consumer Wellness Expert appearing on television, I highly recommend Jayme's book to better your life.

The ebook for the second edition of this does not exist at least not here at Barnes and Nobles. I made the mistake of purchasing it and having to wait a week for the refund.
