Creating a Door Protector for this family was rather easy. I was first invited for a Feng Shui consultation some 10 years before and over the decade, I visited the husband’s workplace, helped the wife to carve a personal space within the home, re-arranged the children’s bedrooms, spiced up the master bedroom, changed the color of the family room and eventually participated in a house and garden major renovation that caused the property to grow from a “Feng Shui nightmare” into a warm and loving environment that supported everyone’s growth.
The husband is a well-recognized and admired business leader, a consultant to powerful organizations and a highly praised published author. The wife is a true renaissance woman. A successful entrepreneur, she is an accomplished ceramic artist who engages her pottery and the vibrational energy of crystal bowls to facilitate healing. This dynamic woman is also a 4-time best-selling author!
A couple of years ago, the family was going through a rough patch and I was called for the “Feng Shui tune up” that led to commissioning the door protector.
The silhouette of a sinuous mountain range with the sun peeking over the gentle yet solid shapes seemed the appropriate metaphor to convey the family’s need for stability and hope. The powerful Wish Granting Wheel Mantra appears to form out of the sunlight blurring the separation between night and day, as if to indicate that in life, darkness and light are equally powerful gifts.
A full moon mirror on one side provides for the crystal clarity born out of introspection. The North Star on the opposite side serves as a source of wisdom and guidance helping the dwellers to always find the best way to move forward in trying times. Mustard seeds are meant to dispel negativity. Placed at the end of the mantra, it implies that if the family follows the principles of ethical living, with kindness and compassion, climbing life’s hills and peaks could turn into gentle gliding journeys.
The day we installed the art above the door, one of the sons was convalescing from ACL replacement surgery and experienced a nasty rash on his whole leg that was defying all forms of treatment. After we installed the door protector, they “discovered” a treatment that worked effectively. The daughter had been sick with the flu and by that night, her fever had broken and she was on the road to recovery
Since then, the husband wrote a very influential book aimed to help people improve their leadership skills and build great organizations. The publishing of Ingaging Leadership by Evan Hackel in August 2014 was met with enormous success.
Meanwhile in May 2015, Laura Zak Hackel published The Energy of Healing, the first of 4 best-selling books edited by Erica Glessing.
In Laura’s words, since the door protector was installed, “the house just felt right. It is expansive and open and I feel safe”.
Laura Zak and Evan Hackel along with their high school daughter and 2 successful young men in their 20’s enjoy life and like sharing their goodness with family, friends, clients and strangers. They cheerily encourage you to purchase an embellished canvas wrapped print of their door protector and experience its full power.
Allow the mantra’s teachings and all the symbols to inform your path in life, see the way forward with more clarity, and sense the North Star’s illuminating the way out of a chain of seemingly insurmountable mountains.
