Mo (Marsha)


Everyone would like to be peaceful and prosperous, with lots of good energy, but how do you achieve this?  An ancient Chinese practice, Feng Shui, has become a popular way for people to adjust their living environment for more harmony.

Feng Shui, which translates as “wind and water,” considers the environment to be a metaphor for everything that occurs in your life.  Feng Shui is based on the idea that the energy or chi in every space has its own personality.  Those who occupy the space reflect the personality of the chi in it.  When the space you live or work in is arranged in harmony with nature, life can be good.

Feng Shui has long been used in the Orient.  It is a belief that the auspicious placement of buildings, doors, and furniture can ensure a happy life – change your surroundings and you change your life.  Good Feng Shui keeps the good energy flowing freely through a building, creating harmony and facilitating communication among those who live or work there.

While this can sound rather mystic, the goal of having your personal environment in harmony and balance with the natural environment makes a lot of sense.  Aesthetics, energy flow and common sense are the basis for the advice offered by feng shui practitioners.  Pyramid Feng Shui is a school of thought developed in the United States using psychology, sociology, cultural anthropology and cutting edge scientific research on how the body responds to space. 

Mo (Marsha) Linquist has been recognized by the Feng Shui Institute of America (FSIA) as a Certified Feng Shui Professional, for the past ten years.  FSIA has established a comprehensive program to bring standards of excellence to professionals in the person/place business.  Mo is the Creative Projects Director for the Institute and also holds a position on the faculty.  She is also the President of the Feng Shui Institute International.  Her professional training is accredited by the American Society of Interior Designers for continuing education credits as more design professionals begin to recognize the value of Feng Shui in home design and décor.  As a faculty member of the Feng Shui Institute, Linquist has raised the awareness and understanding of Feng Shui through speaking engagements and training sessions across the United States. 

Linquist’s Feng Shui consulting practice is aptly named “PersonPlace Consulting,” and she defines herself as an “environmental language interpreter.”  Linquist notes that, Feng Shui consultations are more science than magic, analyzing how people feel in an environment, then deciding what to do and why.”  Linquist helps people learn why some places feel good and seem to nurture them, while other places make them uncomfortable. Pyramid Feng Shui specifically addresses the person in the place

In addition to Feng Shui consultations, Linquist worked as an interior designer for Ethan Allen in Ohio and is an allied member of ASID. Her husband, Randy, dreamed of one day living at the beach.  Recently they moved to Pleasure Island proving how turning dreams into reality works.  It always is a great time to assess your home with Feng Shui.
