🎧199: How to Use Feng Shui to Change Your Life with Kate MacKinnon
I Heart My Life Show
At I Heart My Life, we witness so many examples of the great things that can come from trusting your instincts. The problem? So many people lack the alignment needed to trust their gut and fully step into their calling. Maybe you feel like you’re meant for something more but can’t quite get the clarity you need. Perhaps you’re feeling stuck or unfulfilled but can’t put your finger on the solution. If so, this is the episode for you. As it turns out, our intuition can guide us to our truest callings and deepest desires. That’s why I’m excited to bring you this episode all about how creating alignment in your physical space can make room for mental, emotional, and spiritual alignment as well. It’s all in the power of Feng Shui. Now, I wasn’t really sure if I was a believer until I sat down with Kate MacKinnon, a certified Feng Shui practitioner. Hearing her story, what she does, and how she uses physical changes in her client’s space to transform their lives totally shifted my perspective. This episode covers the basics of Feng Shui, explaining why you should implement it in your life and how it can open the doors for life-changing transformation. From client success stories to tangible tips for getting aligned in your space (at home or on the road), this episode will have you believing in this powerful practice too. This episode begins with Kate taking us way back, outlining the journey that led her to pursue her passions of Feng Shui full-time (despite a successful corporate career). While this episode offers insight into the power of Feng Shui, it also serves as a reminder of the importance of following your instincts and pursuing your passions. For Kate, that passion was helping others achieve balance and alignment through rearranging their physical space. Follow along as we discuss the principles behind the practice and how our external environments reflect our inner truths. (Is your mind blown yet?). Kate details why Feng Shui works to help her clients (and how it can help you, too). Her services have led to clients landing dream gigs, achieving new levels of wealth, and finding more happiness. You know I’m all about helping you take action and make positive changes in your life. That’s why I ask Kate to share tips for how you can bring Feng Shui to any space you are in, whether it’s at home, work, or on the go. The best part? These tips are pretty simple! As it turns out, small and simple changes can lead to big results. It’s all about creating a space that makes space and energy for you to step into your most authentic self. I’ve always known alignment is vital to long-term success and happiness, and after this conversation, I was so ready to have Kate come into my house and work her Feng Shui magic. Give it a listen, and I’m sure you will be too. In this episode… [02:30] Welcome, Kate! Learn how resilience and desire paved the way toward her success.

Quotes: “It’s important [to remember] how instinctual we are and how that can actually lead us in the direction we're meant to go.” -Emily Williams “Our homes actually reflect the choices we make. Our homes are a map of who we are. The choices we make in our external environment actually reflect what's going on internally.” -Kate MacKinnon “I think it's really important to follow what feels right for you. When I'm working with people, I give guidelines. I don't always say, ‘Do this exact thing, and it has to look this way,’ because I really believe people know. So it’s about creating that space because it feels good.” -Kate MacKinnon “Sometimes we're scared, and we think fear is the reason why we shouldn't do it. I've learned in my own experience that fear is a reason why I should do it because it's the thing that I really want.” -Kate MacKinnon “Desire is just leading us towards more life.” -Emily Williams Links & Resources: Follow the Podcast: I Heart My Life Show on Apple Podcasts I Heart My Life Show on Spotify Connect with Kate: Kate’s website Kate on Instagram Kate on Twitter Connect with Emily: I Heart My Life Website I Heart My Life on Instagram I Heart My Life on Facebook I Heart My Life on LinkedIn Email: email@example.com Book a Call Episode Sponsor: I Heart My Life Mastermind

Spiritually bankrupt to fit. Kate MacKinnon, Former VP of JPMorgan Chase, also ran her own management tech company before answering her calling to help women to step into their power and greatness. Now, as a certified Feng Shui practitioner, Kate creates spaces of elegance and beauty that transform lives. Kate describes her journey from Artist to inadvertent feminist to becoming a coach and guide for women as well as becoming a certified Feng Shui practitioner. In this episode, I pronounced Feng Shui incorrectly until the end (it’s Fung Schway, by the way). Important points: Use mentors and guides! Listen to yourself and trust that inner knowingness. If you drink to drown your feelings, you might find out they can swim anyway. Our space reflects who we are. Space is space, whether that’s your desk, room, office, or home. Take a look at your environment. Clutter blocks energy flow. Things have energy and can block us from what we really want. Create a way of being with your stuff. Again, listen to yourself. Do everything with intention.
