Bad Business Karma: John Windwalker
Another business deal falls through. Another client
leaves. Employees are dropping like flies. You can blame your
team, your clients, or your technology. The real problem, however:
"Nothing happens without a cause," says John Windwalker
a metaphysician and clairvoyant who runs Windwalker Consulting at
133 Washington Road in Rocky Hill. "Let’s say I don’t like
attitude at work, so I start talking about them behind their back.
What I’m really doing is mirroring something in myself that I don’t
like and what will happen is people like that person that will keep
showing up in my life. That’s a big thing when it comes to bosses
Windwalker, who moved here from Sonoma, California, last year, wants
to help business people find inner peace and enhance their business
using instinct and creativity — to basically restore humanity
to business. "In western culture all of us work and we spend most
of our time there so we might as well make it something that is
maybe even bordering on joyful," he says. "We’re becoming
technology proficient but at the risk of losing our emotions, of
automatons. We can do what we love and love what we do. A lot of

On Sunday, February 6, Windwalker gives a seminar, "The Key to
Successful Business: Discovering the Power of Creative Feminine

Windwalker has been a consultant, conducting inner awareness and
seminars, for the past 14 years. He grew up on Long Island, where
he attended CW Post College on a football scholarship and studied
business for three years. He always loved meditation — he had
been practicing since age five — but in 1978 he picked up and
moved to California to become a hermit, meditating sometimes six hours
As a clairvoyant, Windwalker claims to use his sixth sense, what he
calls "Sacred Sight," to intuit things — the cause of
a human disease, for example, or a disease afflicting a normally
business. In fact, Windwalker was hired by a bank in California to
sniff out why its real estate department was sinking. "What I
found was that there was a person who had been recently promoted to
vice president who hated her job to such a degree that she really
wanted that division to fail — she had a lot of resistance to
success," he says. "She was good at having a veneer of being
successful and committed, but in truth she was just very angry."
After the bank discovered it was an act of self-sabotage, the person
Intuition — the ability to sense in people and in situations
like anger or deception, generosity and honesty — can be a
asset in business, says Windwalker. "It’s gaining back trust,"
Men and women alike can tap into those instincts, but, says
whose ideas may push the buttons of feminists, woman can access that
power easier because "women are change, women embrace change."
"Masculine energy is the drive to get things done, and the

the male energy is accomplishing."
At Windwalker’s seminar attendees will be introduced to a series of
techniques for relieving stress, dealing with pressure situations,
building confidence, and building better interpersonal relations.
Some tricks of the metaphysician:
a room, or a favorite beach, where you can go for relaxation and inner
peace. "It’s a place in our minds that’s only ours, the seed of
our creativity," he says. "You’ll be able to return there
time and again to create inner peace and poise."
"Before you go to a meeting, you can go to your secret place so
that you never feel like you’re out of place," says Windwalker.
"It’s like recreating the calm feeling of your office, where you
tend to be more relaxed and listen better."
world made sure that women took a subservient role, and that’s
says Windwalker. "It’s going to keep changing. Women are going
to be the half of humanity that is more powerful than the male because
things didn’t work the male way."
Windwalker. "There’s a need for joy, a need for people to be
with themselves and others and do more socially conscious works, and
have the courage to pursue their dreams."
