Have you ever connected with a colleague for the first time and felt like you could be fast friends? Well, my conversation with the adorable and super positive, Debbie Stromeyer Schaffer was like a lightning bolt connection! You will love this intuitive, wise and incredibly sweet member.
Q: Tell us a little bit about your Feng Shui journey.
A: Debbie Schaffer has been an interior designer for over 20 years and has always gotten an intuitive feeling of energy in spaces and she felt like houses “talked” to her and she intuitively knew what the house needed to be a happy home. Then, she received a diagnosis of breast cancer and the “glasses/filters” came off and opened the door to everything on the other side of cancer! She was at a Louise Hay, “I Can Do It” conference and the last copy of Denise Linn’s book literally flew off the table at her. Debbie finally knew that what she had been doing for years was an actual practice! She is now an Advanced Interior Alignment practitioner, dowser and Reiki practitioner, as well as a graduate of Allison Hayes’ Sacred Stone School. Debbie is a lifelong student and enthusiastically embraces all kinds of fabulous modalities that she integrates into her practice.
Q: What do you feel is your niche or unique gifts with Feng Shui?
A: Debbie is passionate about Space Clearing and is quite adept as a 6 Metal to sense the energy of spaces and read the energy of her clients. She strives to make a soul connection with her clients and to help balance the home energetically and allow her clients to “sync” into their homes. Debbie is known for helping a home to discover its soul.
Q: Tell me more about your “Nest Intentions” custom blend sprays!
A: Debbie taps in to your address and connects to your Angels & Guides to create a fully customized essential oil blend that will harmonize your space and support your physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Debbie does blends for either the client or the home, or both, which clears the way for powerful shifts and healing.
Q: What do you “know for sure”, a riff on Oprah’s favorite question?
A: Debbie believes that we are all in this together. She used the analogy of the childhood game with two paper cups and a string to create a makeshift telephone. She said that we should grab those etheric strings, as they connect the two “cups”…between us and the Universe/God/Creator on the other end and it is an open stream of support and messages.
Q: Please share a favorite Feng Shui success story.
A: Debbie’s client was a female that had recently gone through a nasty divorce. She and her children bought a house with her sister and they became housemates. The sisters immediately started having relationship issues. Debbie did all of the mundane Feng Shui cures in the Relationship gua of the home and each room, but with no shift in the contentious energy of the sisters. As she was doing a Space Clearing, she found that there was geopathic stress shooting up from the ground and directly under each of the sisters’ beds (their bedrooms were stacked). As soon as Debbie cleared and released the Earth energies, the relationship was harmonious and happy.
Q: Do you have any upcoming projects or events that you would like to share with us?
A: Debbie’s intention is to start a blog, as she loves to write and share her vast wisdom. She also volunteers at a breast cancer mentor program to help women come out better and more “badass” than before they got their diagnosis.
Q: What do you love about the IFSG?
A: Debbie said that the IFSG is amazing because we all share a common goal of shifting energy for our clients, but we each bring a unique approach and powerful gifts. She loves the virtual chapter as a learning resource and is grateful for the generosity and thoughtfulness of each of our members.
