Finding a job can be a daunting task. It’s a job within itself. Posting resumes, networking and interviewing takes diligence and a lot of energy. One of the most common questions I hear is “How can Feng Shui help me find a job?” Allow me to explain.
STEP ONE: Get clear.
Get clear mentally on what you really want in your career. What makes you happy? What drives you? How much are you worth? Do you like to work alone or with people? Think back to a job you really loved and write down what you liked about it. Don’t attach yourself to a specific job title or company. You don't want to attract a title, or business, only to find out it wasn’t truly what you were looking for. Hold off on what your business card will say and instead, consider what a “good day at work” would look like. Perhaps your intention is to work around fun, uplifting people, or experience the freedom to be creative. Then, write your intentions down. I call this exercise “Putting it out there.’
STEP TWO: Clear some clutter.
Now that you have cleared some mental clutter, let’s look at what your environment is saying. You will hear me say this again and again. Be mindful about where you are clearing clutter. Start with your desk, shop, or if you work from your car, start there. Then, take a close look at your front door and the path to it. I explained in my last blog (click here) how your opportunities come through your front door. Be sure the opportunities can find the door and the journey is pleasant.
STEP THREE: Make some noise.
In Feng Shui, when you want to “call something in” you can do so with sound. Bells and wind chimes are most commonly used to “call back” or “call in” a desire. Where should you put it? Although there are a few options, I would start with one near your front door. Your goal is to “call in a new career” so, if opportunities come through your front door, that is a good place to start.
Overall, take time to be intentional. Think deeply about what’s behind what you are looking for. What will the results bring you? Remember, what you think about, you bring about! Ultimately, you created your life so far. If you don’t like where it’s going, you have the same tools, if not more, to steer yourself in a new direction.
