Hindsight is brilliant. We can see so clearly what we shoulda/coulda/woulda done differently.
That being said, consider that if you hadn’t gone through your experiences and your journey, would you really be who you are today? Simply: No.
The ups and downs, mistakes and triumphs have shaped who you are today and how you approach the world. It’s how you approach your work, your passions, your relationships. It’s even how Feng Shui came into your world.
We take those lessons and we acknowledge them. We embrace them. We share them so others can gain from our experience. And we live with gratitude for those who have gone before.
We asked our members to share: what would you tell your younger self (as related to Feng Shui or your business)?
And we love what they gave. How they shared of themselves. We love who they are.
Prepare to learn and be inspired, to celebrate and grow in your own personal journey. A special thank you to those who shared your story.
Someday you will be introduced to Feng Shui. As you explore its origins, purpose and power, you will find an approach that will guide your choices. It will also help you help others to do the same by applying this discipline, whether it is for healing, reaching intentions, increasing prosperity and open doors to opportunities. You will guide everyone you touch with feng shui, to team with others to change the world to a better place.
I would say to her worry less about the future. All the things I worried about like money and jobs were wasted energy. The money for things will come. Focus on experiences, and what you are feeling. Don’t override your instincts because you want to please others. Listen to your intuition about people, places, jobs and everything. Take up a meditation practice and stick with it.
- Keep learning! In both feng shui and business.
- Also don’t give up! Feng shui isn’t known in some parts of the western world. Look at it as a chance to increase awareness.
- Be proud! Don’t be shy to talk about what you know and how excited you are to be doing it.
I’d tell my younger self to let go of a corporate career that no longer honored my talents, interests, and soul; and to take the plunge into my Feng Shui professional career much earlier. Being able to help others is so rewarding and fulfilling. Love what you “do” and success will follow.
Trust your instinct and don’t rush the process, for both feng shui and business.
I’d counsel my younger self to ask more questions; no matter who tells you to shut up and sit down! Seek out a mentor early and find out more about the universe. Life can be a long road of lessons. It’s much easier to walk with someone else than travel alone.
I’d say, don’t expect to go from 0-60 in this journey/career. Give yourself time to breathe and learn. Experience and building confidence are everything.
I would tell her to trust her intuition and feelings about a space – regardless of what it appears like on the surface.
I would also say filter less and say more. Again, following intuition about what to share, even if it seems strange to say it because this is usually what the client most needs to hear (or addresses an unspoken question or need).
When I was young, I was told by everyone what I COULDN’T DO. I was told over and over that my childhood dream of being a pilot was “impossible.” Indeed it was, for the people in that time and place where I grew up. It wasn’t until I was an adult and living in Canada that I realized the opposite was true. That I could be whatever I dreamt of. That’s when my wings grew so that I could fly.
Long afterwards, it gave me the courage to study and practice Feng Shui. I could still live in a culture where things are considered dubious, but I have learnt to live my passion and my truth.
