How to Use Feng Shui to Get a Job


Get out and meet people!

QUESTION: I was recently laid off from a high-tech company. Can you give me any tips on improving my chances of finding a job?


ANSWER: Here is a quick list of ideas that may help the big picture…

1. Clear clutter – create space for a new job to enter….do not let that box of junk from your old desk sit there and wait for a new office….put it all away. And when you need it again, pack it up neatly and off you go. Clean your car too if it gets you to work.

2. Shine up the front door by washing it, oiling the hinges, and perhaps adding a new welcome mat, chime, or potted plant.

3. Add water element near the front door, either just inside or just outside with the intention of getting you in the flow of a good job.

4. Add red in your life. Red activates, so this may help you stay in action looking for a job and avoid the couch potato syndrome. A new red tee shirt or undies can go a long way here with the right intention.

5. Enhance the fame and reputation gua of the house AND EACH ROOM to double up on getting the spotlight on you. That would be the center back area of the home and each room from where you enter the home or room. Make a conscious effort to clean here and add the fire element (red stuff, candles, sun, fire, stars, etc.) or symbols of your fame (your picture, any awards, diplomas, etc) to any of these spots to attract that special job. Just keeping a small light on in this gua for 9 or 27 days can help.

6. It can’t hurt to get the helpful people box involved here. Take a small silver box (or envelope) and place it in the front right-hand area of the home with the intention of bringing the right help your way to find a job. Write down anybody’s name that can help you or a simple affirmation (like “I am now happily employed by the perfect company for me.”) and place it in the box.

7. If you want a more ritualistic cure, make it a point to meet 9 new people each day for 27 consecutive days…..introduce yourself to the cashier at the supermarket if you have to, but do it and you will see that special job come your way.

    I have been unemployed for more than a year now. Can you please help me. When I stand on the threshold and look inside the house there is a bathroom on the right side corner of the house. From what I read that is the career area, what can I do to enhance the place. Also the left side leads to the basement and has steps what I mean is so when I look inside the wall is small left side stair case leading down and right side a bathroom. Can you please help with any tips. My DOB 07/05/74

    give me something spicy and fun to catch my eye when I enter the home – so much so that I don’t even notice the steps and bathroom – which hopefully you can close doors to them or else run red lines across the entry points. (possibly above the door moulding?)
    hope that helps.

    Thanks so much for your immediate response. Can I place a living plant between the bathroom and the stairs, does that help. Can you please tell me what else I can do. I just finished cleaning the doors and the walkway per ur advice what else should I do?

    My home faces North, my bedroom is the SE area of the house I want to move my bed around but I have 2 choices;
    1. On the north wall where there is 2 bathrooms on the otherside of wall
    2. On the East wall where I should not have my head facing.
    Is there a cure to do. Which wall is better? Right now its on the East wall I am not having much job hunting luck?

    Answering this with the style of feng shui that I practice would not be helpful.I’d recommend asking someone who practices a compass style of feng shui. This is like asking a surgeon which acupuncture point will help your sore arm…get it? There are many styles of feng shui and my website is dedicated to mostly a non-compass style of feng shui called “BTB” or “black hat sect” style. :) You might google “flying stars” and see if there’s someone that resonates with you that can help answer your questions.
