From the spirit of "Aloha" comes the all-new Hawaiian feng shui!
Derived from Chinese feng shui, Hawaiian feng shui incorporates the spirit of “Aloha” to create a fresh take on this centuries-old philosophy.
Rather than imposing limitations on your lifestyle with instructions on what not to do, Hawaiian feng shui begins by looking at changes you can make in your current environment.
In her book, the author, a feng shui lifestylist and 30-year resident of Hawaii, shows us how we can apply Hawaiian feng shui to transform our environment into a Heaven on earth. You don’t have to be in Hawaii to experience paradise — you have the ability to improve your present circumstances, regardless of place and time.
When you seem to be in a rut and you are struggling to make your personal relationships work, adopting Hawaiian feng shui into your daily life will enable you to experience the serenity and bliss of life in the Hawaiian Islands. The consciousness gained from feng shui, as inherited and adapted by Hawaii, gives you the power to transform your everyday surroundings into your own paradise.

The author, Hiromi Nagata, has a personality that’s as brilliant as the sun itself. Just being with her brightens your mood, because she is such a positive and vibrant person. As she does in the book, Hiromi begins all of her e-mails with “Aloha!” rather than the culturally typical formal greetings used when writing e-mails in Japanese. There is something very refreshing and wonderful about opening an e-mail and seeing the word “Aloha!” for a change. Furthermore, when most people might say, “Let’s have a drink sometime,” Hiromi would say, “Let’s head for paradise!”
In the book, a line reads, “If you say things in a way that is kind to the soul, you will begin to acquire a paradise-like train of thought”; this is the approach that Hiromi has adopted and practices in her daily life. I, myself, was intrigued by the words “paradise-like train of thought” while I was making this book and soon understood that it has to do with feeling refreshed and clearheaded.
Reading this book will enable you to draw on the inspiration offered by this philosophy. Take your first steps toward “making paradise!”
