Susan Butler, welcome to Pitch Perfect.
Suzanne: Thank you, Jaimie.
Jaimie: Now, I don't know anything about Feng Shui apart from just you know, following you on social media and your PR Club and you also bought Paid to Speak tell me about what feng shui is because is it Woo is it something spiritual? How does it work for someone who has no idea what it is?
Suzanne: It’s a little bit of everything and nothing at the same time. So I don't consider it to be woo because even though you know I I guess I'm quite spiritual. I'm probably the least weird person out there because she'll be right mate. But when it comes to energy, everything is energy. Einstein, relativity, you know, the laws of physics, everything is energy. And it just makes sense that your living environment. That's what it is. It's all energy things you bring into your home. Oh energy, it's either positive or negative eaten yet. So everything you're surrounding yourself by has an effect on your life and that literally is what sanctuary is. It's not about moving furniture. It's not about painting walls red or white or gold. It's the energy of objects as energy of the space that creates either good things or not so good things. So we fix it.
Jaimie: How do you pronounce it? Just saying is Feng Shui?
Suzanne: Feng Shui.
Jaimie: I see I said in such an aussie bogan way. Feng Shui. So that's how little I know about it. I mean, I do remember growing up with someone who was really into Feng Shui did say to me, the way your bed My bed was facing the door. So like, you know, when I sat in the bed, my feet were sort of facing towards the door and this person said, that's a bad thing you meant to be facing away. Is it simple as that or is it a lot more to it?
Suzanne: No, it is. A lot of it is as simple as that. A lot of times, that is actually common sense. And when I bring it up with people, oh, well, that's just common sense. Yeah, but you weren't thinking about that we've. So a lot of what I do is actually bringing things to people's attention. But we do balance the energies with the elements. So we've got five elements you've got fire, metal, water, and what and depending on the classical function way is different, probably from the function where you would have heard of before. We work on numbers, so each home is very different. Each home has different number combinations. And those number combinations mean something. And to balance those particular energies, we face a certain element, whichever demands so for example, where I'm sitting right now, I need fire. So I have this little guy as my fire remedy. That's as simple as it is.
Suzanne: It's really, I try and keep it as as simple as possible for people to implement quickly and easily because anything more is too confusing. People get overwhelmed, and then they don't go through with it. So why
not? I mean..
Jaimie: I love it. So we I talked about in the intro how you help a lot of female solopreneurs. So what kind of an impact can feng shui have on people's business? Is it just their home life or is it you know, in a holistic point of view when we're talking about people's business?
Suzanne: Well, my solopreneur women work from home for the most part, so we want the space surrounding them to support them. You know, imagine you're a mom with two kids, you're running a business. And for most women who do run a business, it's not taken seriously. Even though the business is very serious, and they're working very long hours of it, have a little business going that's you know, that's something that is set a lot. It's just not taken seriously, even though they could be generating really good income. Everything else is still piled on top of them to expectations to drop the kids at school, get dinner organised, do the shopping, do this, do that blah, blah. And then they can't focus on their business and then working on the business still 10 or 11 o'clock at night. Follows intimacy, the kids never get to see them because they're not fun anymore because their spare time is taken up in their business. You know, they're not going to the school to watch the sports days. Or the assemblies or doing what they wanted to do when they started their business which is be there for their family.
So the Feng Shui balances everything. So you don't have all these little problems. Things become easier to work through. Relationships, get back on track. Kids behind become happier, they start sleeping, no one's cranky anymore, and business explodes.
Suzanne: So one of my clients is an image consultant. And her life was a bit chaotic. And she's very, very good at what she does. So I worked with her in June last year. And then they were really good. They did everything I asked him to do really quickly. Like within the weekend they had it all done. Within a week. She was contacted by an influencer who asked her to come on as an affiliate for her course or her, her membership group so that they could go to her and get their colours done so there would be then been buying the right clothes. That's then three months later so it would have been three or four months later she rang me to say I need to put a block out time in my calendar. I said why she says I'm too busy. It exploded her business within weeks of implementing what I told him and then things have happened as we've gone through. And then we discovered that like her son wasn't sleeping. So we changed his bed around. He started sleeping. Her husband got a pay rise. So it just has a massive effect blow on effect on so many different things.
Like for me it's ended two very toxic relationships which think, oh, that's all great, but it was great. It actually ended and it brought up for me things that I've been ignoring. And that management helped me get through those processes really quickly and really easily. They weren't easily they weren't they weren't great. But I was able to navigate it a lot simpler, and there was a lot less chaos and emotion and blame. I just let it go. And I was able to get through it a lot quicker than what I had been would have been able to do previously.
Suzanne: So many levels. For so many different people. I can't promise what's going to happen because I don't know. You know, you might be ignoring relationship problems you might be ignoring money blocks. The home once it's balanced will keep reminding you until you deal with it. So a lot of what I do with people as I'm working with them, I'm not a coach, I refuse to send the coach I tell people the why. And say you need to do this and then you'll have the results because I'm not I'm not I'm not here to coach people through an emotional problems like this is what's happening. We're gonna keep having the same conversation. You need to need to deal with it. You know, for me was money to start with I hadn't done my tax return. I refuse to do my tax return. I knew I have to pay tax. I didn't have the money to pay tax. So if I didn't do my tax then I wouldn't have to pay tax, like ignore it. It stopped money flowing into me. So I did my tax on instead of having to pay it that I thought I was going to have to take I got a lot of money back because my home was supporting most so there's this little bits and pieces that you know it will support you to make big decisions it will support you through very big life changes. And once you have that understanding of energy and chain and harmony and balance, everything just makes sense.
Jaimie: Yeah, I love it. So signed me up not in relation to the toxic relationships, but just everything else. It's amazing. It sounds like the power is so powerful. And so how do you work? Do you go into people's homes or can you do it via zoom? How can people work with you?
Suzanne: Yeah, so I have two ways to actually really work with me. One is, if you want us to tie stuff was was actually me. I do a little consult and I'll take your home and tell you what's going on for your life. So a psychic reading. I'm not psychic, but I can tell what is going on for you and the wife and explain how to fix it through working with me.
The other way is my abundance blueprint which is a group program, which you get a full report and then you get ongoing support in my community and of course to work through, which will give you a greater understanding of Feng Shui and why we placeholders for replace them how they work together, that sort of thing. And then I have my one on one. So that's when I go into someone's home and work on their home specifically, we look at everything in the home. We look at artwork we look at their decor, we look at the colours of cushions, we look at the cost of they've got the why, like where clutter usually accumulates, that's where the energy is typically off. So we really pay attention to that and remove any instance of why the clutter is coming in.
So my last place I couldn't keep my kitchen tight. Didn't matter what I did. Kitchen was just a dumping ground for the energy was off. So I moved into this place, the kitchens are as follows.
So, you know I keep proving these things to me like okay, this very interesting, why is this happening? And then from doing it myself, I then move and help my clients with their own discoveries. So it brings me so much joy. I just love doing it. I love the transformation that happens with people. I love getting the phone call or the messages saying hey, I just do what you told me to do six months ago, and this is what happened. And of course it did not surprise you do what I told you to do. But one one client moved the office around in a position I told her to do. Well a month prior the next day got a phone call from her accountant saying you and your husband are getting $190,000 pay rise
Jaimie: Okay, well how do I find that accountant? (laughs)
Suzanne: You got this awesome experience and opportunity in Jamaica at the moment for you it might you know, working on you setting your intentions one on one actually do we can make it happen through the manifestation through the setting intentions through the balancing and support your heart and your shoe. You can make anything happen. Absolutely anything.
Jaimie: I love it. I love it. Sign me up, sign me up and sounds all very, very positive. How can people get in touch with you? Have you got anything more to add?
Because, you know, it’s certainly very impressive.
Suzanne: Yeah, I'm actually running a I believe women can do whatever they want to do. And we are the ones that restrict ourselves from creating the magic we want. I'm actually running a retreat in Bali next year, in July, and staying in a beautiful hotel in Nusa Dua and having all the Balinese experiences plus rest. Rest is so important. So that seems a lot of next year. I've got a dinner here in January or Chinese New Year, which had all the predictions for the year. Just gonna be a doozy what else have I got? Follow me on my social just Harmonising Energies and yeah, just reach out if you're curious. Just drop me. drop me a message. Here to help anybody.
Jaimie: Yeah, great. And I'll put some links to that in the show notes as well. Suzanne Butler, thank you so much for coming on Pitch Perfect. You're a valued member of PR club and we love having you and thank you so much. for enlightening us all today about the world of Feng Shui.
