Anna Maria Prezio Interview

Tell us a bit about your latest book “Confessions of a Feng Shui Ghost-Buster”.
The purpose for writing this book is two-fold: First, to allow people to express themselves and their experiences without fear of embarrassment, chastisement or humiliation or worst yet, to be told that they are crazy. Knowing that others have had similar experiences can allow them to express it, and know that their experience is real and not just their imagination playing tricks on them.

Second, once the fear is gone, those experiencing a haunting can know what to do to put their mind at ease and find serenity in their homes and in their lives. They can change their environment and feel better in a peaceful place. They can free themselves to create and design a better, more fulfilling life. “Confessions of a Feng Shui Ghost-Bustser” is an easy guide to understanding why spirits, souls and supernatural forces exist, and how to release them — and the fear. Some very clear and proven methods of Feng Shui, provides solutions, what to look for and remedies to de-clutter your environment from entities, spirits and ghosts.

Keeping a secret such as interacting with a spirit or entity can haunt you and create a feeling of dis-ease with yourself and your environments. Some of us are more sensitive to the spirit world, see entities and oftentimes sense them around us. The ability to talk about it and clear the air through many different methods as defined and expressed in my book, can free us from the fear and allow us to discuss a subject that has been taboo for many years.

“The more we know and understand about what we fear, the easier it is to accept a solution”

What is Feng Shui and how can it benefit me?

Feng Shui is a science and art of creating a harmonic environment in all aspects of our life. It is an ancient practice used by Emperors to give them the advantage of winning territorial wars.

How do you know your house is haunted with ghosts?

You may have ghosts and don’t even know it.
Do you get an uncomfortable unsettling feeling when you enter a room?
Do you hear unusual noise activity?
Do you experience a physical discomfort, a sense that someone is hovering over you?
Do you smell cigars, foul odors, unusual odor and odors you can’t determine its origin? Do you see ghosts, shadows or something pass you by in a flash?

How can I use feng shui to get rid of ghosts?

Five rules to a Serene and Ghost-Free Environment:
(taken from Anna Maria Prezio's ten rules in her book, “Confessions of a Feng Shui Ghost-Buster”)

1. De-clutter is the number one rule for a productive, peaceful and serene environment.
Any type of clutter will invite spirits and promote ghost attraction. Keep all pathways clear, clean and spacious.
2. Do not live near or across from a funeral parlor, a cemetery, gravesite, dumpsite, or a hospital.
Even churches tend to attract spirits.
3. Do not buy or live in a house built on sacred or consecrated ground.
Many houses that were built on ancient burial grounds have spirit energies.
4. Keep all dead things out of your house and office.
Ashes or remains of people, pets, and even dead plants, must be removed from
any environment.
5. Trees, shrubs, walls and fences too close to the house inhibit the flow of healthy chi energy.
Cut them back to allow sun to enter. Ghosts like to hide in weeping willow trees, so keep them far away from the house.

Ghosts are more afraid of us than we are of them.

What makes you different from other feng shui experts?

I was the only one able to link and combine the two areas of feng shui that had been a tabu for centuries. Yin vs. Yang Feng Shui…explain.
I incorporate mind, body and spirit to correct spaces.

Do you have to believe feng shui in order for them to work?

No it’s not a belief system or a cult. Feng Shui is a natural science. However, your environment affects your mood. Every one of us has felt uncomfortable in some spaces as we entered a house or office.

Even Donald Trump himself uses it because it makes him money even though he
told me that he doesn’t have to believe it. It makes him money because his clients want a house, building or condo that has correct feng shui, particularly his Asian clients. Westerners have caught on to this ancient practice because it works.

Why do you believe in Feng Shui?

It’s not a myth. Its an established practice, studied by the ancient masters and is still applicable today especially in our hurried, frantic life because we don’t have much time to create serenity in our lives. Albert Einstein promoted the benefits of feng shui.
Famous people use it, like Oprah, Richard Branson, Sting, Donald Trump, Steven Spielberg, Coca Cola, Disney…
