Beginning in January, 2012 our membership renewal process will
be going online! You will be able to apply for membership, renew your
membership, list your Continuing Education Hours and submit/update your
contact information for the Practitioner Directory as well as pay your
dues – all online! In conjunction with this new process, we are
changing to a January renewal date for everyone. In December each
current member will receive an email stating the amount they will owe
for 2012. Please note, this amount will be prorated according to your
previous renewal month.
Since our organization began in 1999, our membership fee has
remained at $99.00. This year we have revised our membership levels and
fees to reflect the rising costs of running a growing organization
including arrangements for our FSIM meetings and events and upgrading
our website and online benefits.
Our new membership levels are as follows:
Practitioner: $126.00. All benefits of
membership plus listing in the Practitioner Directory with photo, bio,
specialties and contact information and link to your website. Added
online enhancements are being developed to make our FSIM website an
important key to the online presence of your Feng Shui business.
FSIM Friends include both those trained in Feng Shui but who are not
practicing Feng Shui consulting professionally, and Feng Shui
aficionados who have a strong interest in Feng Shui, possibly have a
related business or service (healers, designers, specialty retailers)
and wish to be an integral part of our vital community.
Student: $54.00. This is a maximum one-year membership for anyone currently enrolled in a certified Feng Shui program.
Your board has been working diligently to create a process
for you that will greatly simplify enrollment. If you have any
questions, please contact Cathy or Laurie.

are all caregivers in our personal lives: taking care of spouses,
children and aging parents, assuring that their lives run as smoothly as
possible. If you are an energy worker, that “care quotient” may be
double-taxed. By the end of any given day, you might feel like a bit
like the kitchen sponge, so full of “others’ stuff” it’s hard to find
Once spiritual parameters are established, according to Cyndi, you can
start to free yourself from the seven types of energy syndromes that
cause loss of energy or the absorption of others’ issues. Cyndi will
discuss these syndromes, the subject of her newest book, Energetic Boundaries: How to Stay Protected and Connected in Work, Love, and Life.
With warmth and wit, she will share easy and practical ways to
establish energetic boundaries that help us “take care” of ourselves.

are passing quickly. The eventful year of 2011 leaves us with shocking
memories of huge weather disasters, of loss of life, political
upheavals, and the continuing changes unprecedented in modern times. We
are being tested, it seems, to become more flexible, to find our voices
of dissent and dissatisfaction in the face of injustice.
The possibility for humanity to advance with conscious choices is a
wondrous experience to be part of – these are the biggest leaps possible
for us in 36,000 years! Humanity is slow to change. It takes enormous
pressure to move us forward; that is what is occurring, and that is
bewildering to many.
To aid us in the intense movement, the planets that generate the
biggest changes are hard at work to lend their cosmic influence to all
of humanity – awakening or still sleeping. The planet Pluto is the
furthest out in the solar system, and its divine purpose is to dissolve,
in whatever way it can, the areas of life that are ready to be
completed, or in the worst cases, to be totally destroyed in order for a
new beginning to emerge. These pressured times are similar to the
mystical Phoenix rising from its ashes.
The other planet that foretells change is Uranus, from which the word
uranium has come. Uranus is abrupt and sudden. Its divine purpose is to
create paths to freedom, so it has a revolutionary aspect, which is
breaking out in places of dictatorship. The Arab Spring and Occupy Wall
Street are witnesses to Uranian power and purpose. BUT, we welcome 2012
with hope. Only on planet Earth can these cosmic moments be
experienced. Hang on – the best is yet to come! You are to be part of
this grand scheme.
