How to Find a Feng Shui Consultant

A professional Feng Shui consultation is a wonderful way to experience the benefits of Feng Shui firsthand. But if you are unsure of how to go about hiring a consultant, you may find the following information helpful: The practice of Feng Shui is diverse and multifaceted. There are many different schools and perspectives – all valid, all effective, and all beneficial. I would recommend finding a consultant who practices the style you prefer or are most comfortable with. For example, I practice “Black Hat,” or “Black Sect” or “BTB” style.  So, if you have read my book, Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life!, and you’re looking for a consultant who practices like me, ask them if they practice “black sect style,” and they’ll know what you are talking about. If you have no idea what that style you are looking for or what style the consultant you found practices, ask the consultant to describe their style, along with what some possible cures or recommendations might be, to help familiarize yourself with that particular consultant’s style. You might find it helpful to begin your search in what I would say is the most respected feng shui site around:
