What do you do when life as you know it changes forever and in an instant? For Lois Kramer-Perez, the process of healing from a devastating loss gave her the opportunity to not only heal herself, but to pass that healing on to others through her work.
As an FIT grad, Lois enjoyed an exciting career in the fashion industry. “I was able to express my creativity while being part of the process of ideas being brought to life in the form of sweaters and knitwear,” she says. A life-changing moment, however, led her to an even deeper place of inspiration.
That life-changing moment came in September 2000 when her husband of 19 years suffered a fatal heart attack at home. “In seeking a way to heal,” she shares, “I discovered Reiki, Feng Shui and personal and environmental clearing with dowsing.”
“My teachers and mentors brought me new inspiration and before long, it was time to say goodbye to the fashion industry and begin my new life devoted to creating change for person and place.”
Lois has developed simple yet effective techniques which offer her clients tools for awareness, clarity and empowerment. “I embrace diverse energy modalities such as Feng Shui, personal meditative clearing and environmental space clearing as a way of life. Each of these services, she explains, can provide anchors for creating change from the inside out.
“Through teaching, working with my clients and exploring with colleagues and mentors,” says Lois, “ I am always finding new things to learn and experience which I pass on to my students and clients.”
Lois believes the Universe drew her to this work through her late husband. In an introductory Feng Shui class, Lois was told that in class the following week, she would be learning about the I Ching. “I didn’t know anything about the ‘I Ching.” Later that evening while going through books in husband’s office, Lois came across a book: The Illustrated I Ching. “Wow!” she says, “I had no idea he had this book! I felt he left this book for me, that it was a sure sign I was on the right path, going in the right direction.”
We can all make a difference in the world. “Every person,” she says, “can make a difference by just being. As we each begin to find balance and embrace it, even for just a moment, all who are around us can experience the same. As part of the collective, we create the whole. As we can become peace, joy and balance, we influence all around us to join the experience, without words, without action, by just being.”
Lois is a published author and a member of the International Feng Shui Guild. She is also a faculty member at Ridgewood and Emerson Community Schools, and an anuak presenter at Holy Name Medical Center Healthy Living Programs. She is available for private consultations, speaking engagements and will design a program to fit your needs to create balance and change that is perfect for you.
Meet Lois at the Awaken Wellness Fair on Sunday, April 29 and be sure to catch her presentation, “It’s All About You.”
“It only takes a moment to take a breath, It only takes a moment to become inspired”
