Hello world! My name is Ariela Najman. I am a Feng Shui Designer. What is that? I am a certified Classical Feng Shui Practitioner and an Interior Designer. The journey here has been an interesting and beautiful one.
At a young age I was intrigued by art, color, and composition but I also wanted to know more about the world and subtle energies that make us who we are. At 18, I started practicing yoga which introduced me to connecting with my mind and body. After starting my bachelors degree in Interior Design, I met a Shaman who made an impact on my life. I realized there was much more to this world than the physical. By 2007, I had my bachelors degree in Interior Design & was a fully trained Shaman. For me, Shamanism was more of a way of life, not necessarily something I wanted to do for a living. I had a passion for Interior Design and creating beautiful and functional spaces but I wanted to create an impact on a deeper level. That is where Feng Shui came into play. After moving to Santa Cruz, I began studying Classical Feng Shui with the Golden Gate School of Feng Shui.
So these days, my main focus is on my Feng Shui Design business. On the side, I teach yoga and continue creating art through paintings, furniture refurbishing and the list goes on.
My hopes for this blog are to share my inspirations, my thoughts and my creations!
