Feng Shui consulting
After your rigorous apprenticeship efforts to gain proficiency in Feng Shui theory and practice, it’s now time to apply your skills for remunerative gain, or charitable works.
You will, no doubt, have specialized in one, or more facets of Feng Shui. Those specializations may have been divination using the I Ching to discover an auspicious time to commence a new project, or the likely consequences of an action; Chinese Ba Zi Astrology, or the Four Pillars Of Destiny to advise on life chances, to forecast future events, or establish the root causes of an illness, and the necessary remedies; the appropriate siting of a residence, or office depending on the personal Feng Shui configuration of the householder, and his family, or the joint configuration of the employer, and his or her staff; advice on interior décor, and color combinations to be utilized in a home, or office; reharmonizing ground that is prone to Sha Qi, negative or geopathic energy, and maximizing the flow of Qi; collaborating with a Chinese medical consortia, Feng Shui being the eighth part of the ‘8 Rays of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the others being: acupuncture, herbal medicine, Wushu (Chinese martial arts), and Qigong (breathing exercises), food energetics, moxibustion, meditation, and astrology.
A word of caution however. Most people are still mystified, and locked in the mind-set of the Western paradigm of physical cause, and effect. They do not appreciate the existence of the other 6 universal dimensions, or the Chinese mode of thought, termed synchronicity by C.G.Jung. Most significantly, many are totally unaware that the electro-magnetic field of the earth is reflected in the geomorphic electro-magnetic matrix; the operational basis of Feng Shui. Accordingly, expect prejudice, requiring tolerance, and understanding to offset it.
One should also be aware that as a spiritual discipline, it is counter-productive to be mercenary as regards remuneration for your Feng Shui services. It is a subject that will need much consultation of the I Ching, and meditation to achieve the optimum balance between appropriate payment, and avarice. Also, be aware, any skills you have built up may be taken away from you if you are too materialistic.
Let’s examine a potential Feng Shui assignment. A client approaches you complaining that their house has been on the housing market for a year with no sign of a sale. You might diagnose it as a case of geopathic stress, the signs of which are: ant, and wasp nests; cats being attracted to the garden; poor sleep, illness, and constant tiredness; relationship breakdown; house stuck on the market for ages. Accordingly, your remedy might be to conduct a dowsing survey with two copper rods. Clearing lines of geopathic stress from a property is similar to performing acupuncture on the human body. The careful application of "earth acupuncture needles" will then enable you to banish or neutralize the negative aspects of the energy field.
If you are conscientious, your reputation will spread, and you will be assured of a fulfilling consultancy for the rest of your life.
