How do I find a good Feng Shui or Vaastu Consultant?

The key is to look for a practitioner certified in Classical Feng Shui. This immediately clears away the New Age school consultants and hobbyists whose over-simplified recommendations can prove so dangerous. This is vital: non-authentic Feng Shui deals only with surface energies, not the internal energies which are the root cause of problems. Even more alarming is that in the hands of amateurs, “cures” such as mirrors, crystals or water fountains can actually cause disastrous imbalances that manifest as illness, discord, financial loss and other negative situations.

Like every individual, every home or office has its own “natal chart”. If a consultant doesn’t ask for birthdates, the date you moved into a property, the date it was built, etc. – the consultant is not practicing Classical Feng Shui. Another tip off is the type of compass the consultant uses. A Classical Feng Shui Consultant will use a sophisticated compass called a luo pan that has Chinese characters. Again, if your consultant uses any other type of compass (or doesn’t use a compass at all), beware.

Finally, you want more than a consultant who has simply studied Classical Feng Shui – you want a consultant who is actually certified. Worldwide, only a very few of the students who have studied Classical Feng Shui actually become certified. This is a crucial distinction because the authentic skills and closely guarded secrets of Classical Feng Shui can’t be learned from books: they can only be conferred on students by a few internationally recognized Feng Shui Masters.
