How can I start a career in feng shui?

by Krishna
(Peoria Il)

I stumbled upon your blog just last evening and I loved the simplicity and effortless ease with which you encapsulate such wisdom in a story like manner.

I read about your journey through life and how eventually you found the one faith that you hold so dear...Feng Shui. Just a brief intro about me...I have dabbled with FS oves the past decade and I don't see the fervor either lessen or dim with time . It's an integral part of my life. Along the way I've helped friends with a variety of issues with amazing results...people found solutions they had been looking for and I was just happy and content with the knowledge that I was able to bring about a positive change where needed.

I've been coaxed time and time again by family/friends to live my passion and assist people on a larger scale .... professionally i.e ....and I think I am now ready...I just don't know where and how to begin. I haven't had any formal training but testimonials collected over time are proof to the effectiveness of my knowledge. I did conduct a few trans Atlantic consultations but things have been suspended rather noiselessly in time...a big pause seems to have taken over the energy I had channeled , just a couple of months ago , into my Career scape.
Any suggestions Jessica ?I really want to be part of the FS professional world.

Dear Krishna,

Thank you for your kind words and I congratulate you on your success and passion! If you need formal training or guidance, I would encourage you to sign up as a member of the International Feng Shui Guild—it is a tremendous resource.

I felt the same way you did at one time—I knew I wanted to teach and use feng shui, but I wasn’t sure of the path. I love to design and make art and I also need a great deal of time alone; I just couldn’t envision myself as a traditional feng shui practitioner. So I did what I knew best, I used feng shui, positive intention, and meditation to gain clarity and focus. What unfolded was absolutely extraordinary (you can read the full story here). There is absolutely no way I could have planned for what happened.

I would encourage you to do the same. Set a strong intention and get to work. Make sure to follow your intuition and take action (the action is the important part). I remember the day my direction and purpose became clear. In fact, I remember the exact moment. I didn’t know what to do, so against all desire I hit the pavement and started looking for places I could give free workshops. When I came back with some contacts, I got the random email link from my dad which led me to where I am today. It still gives me chills… I love divine guidance.

It’s very important to remain open to your inner guidance—even if it seems irrelevant at the time. There is no telling where it will lead.

I wish you great fortune on your journey!

"In our deepest moments of struggle, frustration, fear, and confusion, we are being called upon to reach in and touch our hearts. Then, we will know what to do, what to say, how to be. What is right is always in our deepest heart of hearts. It is from the deepest part of our hearts that we are capable of reaching out and touching another human being. It is, after all, one heart touching another heart."
