Getting Started On Your Feng Shui Journey
When you are ready to begin your journey with Feng Shui, I recommend that you find someone that resonates with you.
One of the keys to success when choosing a Feng Shui Consultant is knowing what questions to ask while building a trusted relationship.
Every practitioner will have a unique interpretation of the relationship between your current quality of life, your personal & professional goals, and your home environment or workplace.
How do you find someone that’s a good fit?
First, I suggest you have a conversation to get to know each other. During that time you can ask questions of the consultant. Although this is not an exhaustive list, it’s a good starting point to guide you.
What Are Your Credentials?
- Where or with whom did you get your education?
- How many years have you been in practice?
- Where are any published articles or books?
- What are some special achievements or client experiences?
What kind of Feng Shui perspective do you practice?
What is your specialty focus? What are your particular skills & talents?
- Residential, commercial, and/or landscape
- Clutter clearing
- Home staging
- Space clearing
What can I expect during the consultation? (here are a few more ideas)
- How long does a consultation generally take?
- Should my spouse and/or children, roommates be there?
- Must I organize and clean up before the consultation?
- What are your fees?
- What’s included in the services?
- What can I do to best prepare for the consultation?
Can a consultation be done for someone in their absence as a gift or surprise?
Can you do a consultation long-distance or work from a floor plan remotely?
How soon can we get started?
To get the most out of your relationship, Be honest about your willingness to change. Clarify your goals. What are you trying to accomplish? Are you willing to do the changes necessary? A consultant’s work is only useful if you do the work, too.
One more thing, treat your consultant as a valued partner. This will result in your consultant being more generous with their experiences, objectivity, and expertise.
