Feng Shui Books are a super popular topic. I get asked for recommendations **ALL** the time. I’ve read a great number of them- if I learn one new thing or technique I’m elated.
Here are the top 10 Books I suggest. Each of these books has a different focus, ranging from Declutter, Health, Mindset, to ADVANCED Feng Shui. Take a look and see where you are and what you personally need at the moment. They are also organized by Beginner/Casual Interest, Intermediate, and Advanced levels for your ease.
Easier to Read/Starter Books
Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life by Karen Rauch Carter.
Listen Karen Rauch Carter is a master at Feng Shui. I love how she breaks this book down with simple tasks you can try to get started. Move on to her other books if you want something slightly more advanced.
2 Books- Same Author. Yes get both.
Karen Kingston was one of the first writers I read on Feng Shui. These books have a great deal of information in them and have stuck with me over the years. They are easy to read, digest, and act upon. I have thousands of hours of Feng Shui training, and I still periodically reread these. (I replaced Clear your Clutter just a few months ago because the cover and first 50 pages or so just fell off of my 15 year old copy- that I’m pretty sure I stole from my mom when I was like 13.)
2016 Yang Fire Monkey Kit-
My Feng Shui Mentor, Tina Falk from VIA Feng Shui (the gold ribbon school my certification is from) makes AMAZING kits for the flying stars of each Chinese Zodiac Year. I’m not even going to bother explaining what any of that means, because these kits are $20 and Tina provides instructions that make it S.O. easy to use. Flying Stars change daily, monthly, yearly (basically constantly) and the instructions are straight easy enough that you can change the month cards without thinking about the complexity of it, and focusing on your intentions and desires for the month. 😉 😉
Buy These Now if you are REALLY interested in Feng Shui (Intermediate)
My favorite, absolute Go-To-Feng Shui book is Feng Shui Your Life by Jayme Barrett. ***Feng Shui Your Life is a really common name for Feng Shui books so make sure you grab the right one.
This is based on BTB (Black Hat) Feng Shui, and even through I tend toward Traditional Feng Shui, the design aspect of this book is amazing. I have bookmarks hanging out of this book everywhere.
~The first edition from 2001 is great and can be gotten really cheap. However the updated 2012- Second Edition is worth the extra money.
Denise Linn is an absolute Feng Shui master. If it has her name on it, I highly suggest it. I think I own 11 of her books. Start here.
This book makes a good combination if you are looking to combine environmental Feng Shui with improving your health. This is a highly suggested reference if you are looking for *a little bit more* from your Feng Shui. I use and reference these techniques personally and with my clients quite often.
This book is more about the vessel you are in for this lifetime and how you can make that knowledge help you interact with your environment. I LOVE Jon Sanidfer. Some of his books are difficult to find and out of print. This is an amazing book, however it is NOT a beginner book.
The Alchemy of Quantum Mind Feng Shui By Mary Shurtleff:
If you are looking for the ultimate book on Feng Shui- this is the one you want. Be warned. It’s full of information, not a quick read, and maybe not the simpliest to read, however it has nearly all the information you’d ever need to really be able to learn aboutFeng Shui from a book. ***A Master Course in Feng-Shui by Eva Wong
