Wherever you go in Hong Kong — a city that loves business, money and prosperity — you see Chinese symbols of wealth and money. The ubiquitous symbol you see most often is the lucky Chinese coin. These coins are round with a square hole in the center. They represent both heaven (the circle) and earth (the square), and because of this, they’re deemed especially auspicious.
Many of my readers and even clients ask about working as a feng shui consultant. It’s a career that doesn’t have much written about it — especially from an insider’s view. And many people think it’s a New Age-y kind of career, but it’s much more than just good feelings! Feng shui is about black and white principles of placement, not just esoteric thoughts and holding the right kind of intentions.
Getting ahead in any area of life requires that you get plenty of attention. Fortunately, feng shui offers key steps that can help you gain more notice to help you get the recognition you deserve. If you’re interested in progressing in life, it’s important to make feng shui adjustments to important areas such as the north (career/opportunities) and northwest (helpful people/mentors) sectors. These two sectors are critical for helping you rise in prominence.
