In Feng Shui Simply, Cheryl Grace digs deep into the principles of feng shui to present an exciting new view of this age-old concept and shows that feng shui isn’t just about rearranging your furniture or painting your walls; it goes much deeper. She opens your eyes to how feng shui can be used to balance the energy of every part of your life—both in your external and internal environments. Grace shows that bringing your focus to both of these worlds is a powerful way to design the life you’re meant to live.
In these pages, Grace takes you on a journey to design your living spaces using the classic Bagua map—a chart separating physical spaces into nine areas, each representing a different aspect of life, such as wealth, family, and career. But perhaps more importantly, she goes one step further, teaching you the inner work of feng shui using her own Inner Wisdom Bagua map, which correlates the characteristics, beliefs, and attitudes that will help you flourish in each area of your life.
Sharing anecdotes from her own experience switching careers from an ESPN executive to a feng shui consultant, as well as her clients’ success stories, Grace walks you through each area of the standard and Inner Wisdom Bagua maps to create unique solutions for your life. She teaches you to harness the power of your intuition to determine what’s true and important for you. And she offers practical tools based on concepts such as Yin and Yang, the Five Elements, and the Magical Day, to help you figure out which enhancements will be the most effective in transforming your life.
By celebrating key principles like universal gratitude, a positive outlook, and living in the present moment, she shows you how to manage life on a day-to-day basis and points you toward your life’s true purpose.

Most know that Feng Shui is used for interior design to bring harmony and balance to one’s life. Cheryl Grace inspires us to think about using Fung Shui for fine tuning the internal environment within ourselves in her book called Feng Shui Simply Change Your Life From the Inside Out Feng Shui Simply To use Feng Shui for inner growth the author suggests that first it is important to clear old belief systems, skepticism and doubt and fixed opinions and stop being inflexible in our view points. Aligning thoughts for a better outlook on life are presented in this book. Some of the techniques suggested are: Those approaches consist of simplifying your life Take everything that happens in your life as a gift (Both perceived good and bad.) Practice deep appreciation and let go of the 5 year plan and serve others. The book is rich with information and resources so the reader can continually learn Feng Shui for inner harmonious balance and growth after the book is finished being read. I found this book very inspiring with a new approach that makes me so excited to study these techniques further. This is a book I love and know it will be a book I will continually read as a viable resource. I’ve learned so much about using Feng Shui both in the home and using it inwardly to reach goals and balance I want in my life. The book is written simply with a Bagua Map with the zones that correlate with the energetic qualities needed to bring harmony. Feng Shui Simply by Cheryl Grace is a great book encouraging the reader by giving them self-confidence in using techniques that can bring great results. Another thing I love about this book are the suggestions of books that can be read to continue learning techniques of Feng Shui that can be used to gain better intuition. I received this book as a reviewer for HayHouse but I have express my own opinion of the book.
Over 13 yrs ago recieved my Feng Sui certification and 4 yrs ago my so called " masters". I Say so called because the entire weekend was really more about how to earn an income from Feng Shui than the deeper understanding I craved. Once I'd learned and dove deeply into Reiki and energy healing practices I knew there had to be so much more to Feng Shui. Mz. Grace has met that need in this book. I ended up highlighting three fourths of the book. I'm not surprised to discover that she is a Reiki master as well. The real key to success in Feng Shui is Intention and your inner goals. Not only do you learn the decorating side of the bagua and element, yin-yang here but how to use them to bring more peace and happiness as a basel line of your life. Highly recommend this book.
