If you’ve read the home page of my site, you know I faced a cancer diagnosis, underwent chemotherapy and radiation, and then ran up against a brick wall when my current doctors could not do anything more about my situation. The tumor I had was too close to an artery for my doctors to feel comfortable operating on me. My situation turned around for the better about a year ago when my intuition led me to contact the Mayo Clinic, a two-hour flight away from my home. It was those doctors that saw me, operated on me and sent me on my way to a second chance at life. And it was feng shui that attracted those doctors to me.
Before I go any further, let me say I’m not a doctor or medical professional, and I am not giving out medical advice. While I used metaphysical techniques to aid in my recovery, I listened to doctor’s orders and I recommend that anyone with a health ailment find a doctor that they trust who knows what they are doing. Now here’s how feng shui helped me to do just that.
I have always been interested in feng shui. I’ve had good experiences with other experiments I’ve done. For example, I purchased a Citrine crystal and placed it in the wealth corner of my house a few years back and within a year my financial situation had totally transformed and I was making more money than I had ever made in my life. Shortly after I was diagnosed with cancer, I looked for ways to use feng shui for health and to improve my situation.
Turning to feng shui for health problems
Now I’m the first to say that I’m no expert on feng shui. I’ve dabbled in it and read a few books. One of the things I learned is that the part of the house to the right of the front entrance is known as the ‘helpful people and travel’ corner of the house. That is where I focused my energy.
Some may wonder why I didn’t focus directly on the ‘health’ section of my home, which is in the center of the house. If there was anything I knew at that time it was that I needed help from others. I did not have the answers I needed or the ability to handle this dire situation on my own. So that’s where I decided to try my luck.

One of the beautiful things about metaphysical practices is you are invited to bring your whole selves to them. Rather than looking for a ritual that would help me, I decided to create my own.
My ritual to attract the right medical team
I knew that I needed helpful people to treat me. I wanted a team of doctors who knew how to help me and who would successfully take care of my situation. At this time, I didn’t yet know that my current doctors would not be able to help me beyond a certain point. I took a piece of paper and I wrote, “I attract a health team that can treat me holistically and that knows how to bring me back to good health.” I then folded the piece of paper and placed it in a decorative box that was in that particular room. And then I walked out of the room and totally forgot about it.
A few weeks ago, I was in that room and I stumbled upon it. I had totally forgotten about that request I had made. Yet what happened in my life over the past year was something of a miracle. I just felt drawn back in February of last year to reach out to the Mayo Clinic after my current doctors had put me on ‘maintenance chemo’ since there was nothing more they could do. Despite the fact that I had heard stories about it taking time to get an appointment at Mayo, I was told there was an open appointment the next week. When I arrived to Mayo Clinic, not only did their tests show that there was no cancer in my body, but they told me they could do the surgery, which would give me a shot at the best possible outcome. I realized that these doctors were the helpful people I had been looking for.
Last week, I took the piece of paper out of my ‘helpful people’ corner. It is one of the souvenirs that I take from this experience of growth and transformation. And I thanked the Universe for doing its part to assist me.
You don’t just have to use this ritual if you want to use feng shui for health. You can use it for anything. Whether you’re looking for a doctor, a plumber, a handyman or any other type of helpful person, give this practice a try. While it may take some time to manifest — it was about eight months later that my Mayo medical team showed up in my life — your intentions and expectations will be working in conjunction with the Universe to bring your request to fruition.
