badLuckFew people enjoy good luck forever.  Sooner or later, bad luck will catch up with you.  This article lists some easy-to-do things to mitigate or steer you away from bad luck as soon as possible.

What you can do to get away from bad luck:

  1. Change your hair style and clothing habit
  2. Sleep in a different room
  3. Modify your bed location or head-facing direction
  4. Do some minor remodeling, like new wallpaper or new paint
  5. Re-arrange the furniture layout of your house
  6. Do a house-cleaning
  7. Change the location of your fish tank (if you have one)
  8. Attend celebratory events like wedding, baby shower, birthday party and the like, to draw in good energy
  9. Make a short trip to another city
  10. Do volunteer work for charity
  11. Donate money to charity

All the above aim at attracting positive energies and dispelling negative energies away from you.  Thus reducing the intensity of your bad luck.

Avoid doing the following when you are in bad luck:

  1. Avoid attending funeral because of death or yin energy will make your bad luck stronger.
  2. Avoid visiting hospital for the same reason above.
  3. Avoid taking risks or making major decisions because when you are in bad luck, you are likely make the wrong decisions.
  4. Avoid making new investments
  5. Avoid gambling and speculation.
  6. Avoid loaning money to people.
  7. Avoid changing jobs frequently.

hauntedA house is inauspicious or haunted if it has the following characteristics:

  1. There are two or more deaths or severe injuries in the family within 3 years of moving-in.– House like this usually has “sha-qi” (negative energy) like T-junction, sickle-cutting sha, heart-piercing sha or “white-tiger sha”.  These negative energies cause bloody events, backstabbing and disharmony .
  2. After moving in, family members have chronic headache, fevers or diarrhea.
  3. Family members suffer frequent misfortunes and bad lucks after moving in.
  4. Family members suddenly turn against each other after moving in.
  5. After moving in, family members suffer insomnia or dreaming of ghosts.
  6. Pets like cat and dog refuse to enter the new house or certain part of the house.
  7. Baby or toddler cries when entering the new house, especially at the evenings
  8. Barely perceptible smell of rotten material or foul smell (but cannot find the source)
  9. Small animals clashing into the house and died (excluding moths)
  10. Feeling chill inside the house even in summer.
  11. Family altar tablets (of ancestors or deity) fell down or cracked

Move away if this is your house.  The problem is that if you live in a house with these conditions, you are likely in a bad luck period and may end up in a much worse house.  Hence you should hire a Feng Shui practitioner with a proven track record to help you find another house.

If for any reason that you cannot move, as long as your problem is not due to #1 above, find a priest of your preferred religion and do a cleansing and blessing of your house (and hope the problems go away).

Classic Feng Shui model

(Continue from previous article)

Returning to the original questions:

What is Feng Shui for?

Feng Shui is simply the knowledge of site selection and harmonious living and interaction between inhabitants and their natural environment.  Enhancing luck, wealth and etc. are NOT the original objectives of Feng Shui.  Increases in wealth and prosperity are “by-products” of stable living environment that shields its residents from  the elements and provides steady supply of living essentials like water and vegetation.  Feng Shui is similar to the modern “Human Geography”– “ the study of the interaction between human beings and their environment in particular places and across spatial areas.” (Dictionary.com)

How much “weight” or importance is Feng Shui in one’s destiny?

According to Yi-jing, the five most important determinants of an individual’s destiny are:

  1. Fate (一命, ming)what one was born with, hard to change
  2. Luck (二运, luck)what one was born with with limited degree of flexibility
  3. Feng Shui  (三风水)– one’s living and social environment
  4. Accumulation of good deeds (四积阴德, yin-de)
  5. Formal Study (五读书)– go to school

2017 Auspicious Wealth Symbols

From the above list, you can see luck and fate have more influence than Feng Shui.  More often than not, I found people with bad luck also have bad Feng Shui synchronized with it.

This is easy to explain as when one is in good luck, one will have strong energy or qi-field that can block off or reduce the effect of negative energy caused by variables like Feng Shui or Bazi.  One’s energy will be weaken during a bad luck period.  Existing negative forces, including spiritual ones, can take advantage of the weaken state of the individual and attack.  This is why sometimes we feel “Blessing does not come in multiples and misfortune does not come alone“.

“Could Feng Shui help us during our bad luck periods?”

It all depends on the nature of your “bad luck“– whether it is karma-related or simply “system design” (destiny).  Assuming it is not karma-related, then Feng Shui at least keeps you physically healthy or “sane”.

“If our luck periods are good, we don’t need Feng Shui.  Isn’t this correct?

Yes, this is my little secret with you.  However, people are likely to think their good luck lasts forever and are caught unprepared when bad luck strikes.

“So, if this is the case, then why do we bother with Feng Shui at all?” “If our luck periods are good, we don’t need Feng Shui.  Isn’t this correct?

You still need Feng Shui because no one has good luck periods forever.  No place has good Feng Shui forever too.

“If a client is in bad wealth luck period and requests wealth enhancement, the practitioner cannot do much with Feng Shui.”  Why?

To understand this statement, you need to know what causes “bad wealth luck” in Bazi.  It is likely either problem of strong peer stars (bi-jie) for strong daymaster or strong wealth stars (cai) for weak daymaster.  Enhancing wealth during a bad wealth luck period may cause more losses.

How come the richest people are not Feng Shui masters?

0000_fs_guyAfter reading my previous article on “Why check Bazi before doing Feng Shui?“,  a student of mine asks the questions below:

“If a client is in bad wealth luck period and requests wealth enhancement, the practitioner cannot do much with Feng Shui.”

  • But then I ask myself, what is Feng Shui for?
  • Isn’t it to help us during our bad luck periods?
  • If our luck periods are good, we don’t need Feng Shui.   Isn’t this correct?
  • So, if this is the case, then why do we bother with Feng Shui at all?
  • Probably I’m missing something here…

Don’t throw away your Feng Shui books yet.

I will ask more questions to answer your questions — to stimulate your intellectual growth.

FENG SHUI AND WEALTH CORRELATION

Donald Trump had hired Feng Shui Master Pun-yin in the design of his Trump Tower in 1995.  Why it is Donald Trump and not Master Pun-yin becoming ultra-rich and President?

Feng Shui was originated in China.  It is more appropriate to look at the ultra-rich in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

0000_jackmaJack Ma, the CEO of Alibaba Group is known to at least respect and follow Feng Shui practices.  Lee Ka Shing, the real estate tycoon of Hong Kong is well-known for utilizing Feng Shui to enhance his prosperity.  Terry Gou, Taiwanese tycoon, the CEO of Foxconn is also known for dedication to Feng Shui practices down to his ancestral tombs.

I cannot find any ultra-rich Feng Shui masters in these regions (with the exception of Tony Chan who had amassed a huge fortune using “special relationship” with his female client).  Why?

Therefore we can see there may be a correlation between people who hire Feng Shui masters and become richer but no correlation between Feng Shui masters and their wealth level.

Take me for example–  I know 20+ Feng Shui techniques, from “water dragon”, “5-ghosts carry money” to “think and get rich” and 100+ Daoist ritual techniques for attaining or enhancing wealth luck.  I should be very rich but not.  Why?

UNIVERSAL RULE OF WEALTH AND BLESSING0000_ultra_rich

A popular belief in wealth and blessing in China is:  the amount of wealth and blessing of an individual is predetermined.  Only under rare circumstance like extreme hard work and good deeds performed,  the predetermined amount may be altered for the individual.

When you have consumed or used up your predetermined wealth and blessing– you will die even if you have not reached your life-expectancy date.  This is why I do not encourage people to push wealth enhancement because it could also mean they may  cut short their life expectancy unknowingly.

How do you find out your predetermined amount?  The exact amount is hard to determined but a rough sketch can be deduced from checking the wealth elements in one’s Bazi chart.

Another rule of predetermined wealth is one rarely gets all of what one entitled– one must at least show some efforts.  For example, if your predetermined amount is $10M,  you may at most get 0- 70% of the allocated amount.  To get more, you may need to do good deeds, persistent hard work and use metaphysical methods like Feng Shui, QMDJ and Bazi.  But one rarely gets more than the predetermined amount.

Therefore, Feng Shui definitely can help in wealth attainment.  But this is a narrow application of Feng Shui.  Feng Shui serves more functions than just enhancing your wealth luck.

To be continued in Part II:  Can Feng Shui help bad wealth luck period?

0000_fengshuiloWe have a saying in this business– “A Bazi reader can get by without Feng Shui knowledge.  But a Feng Shui practitioner must know Bazi.

Feng Shui practitioners need Bazi knowledge because:

  1. Matching clients to practitioner himself—  to make sure client’s Bazi chart does not clash the practitioner’s chart.  This is to ensure a happy and smooth working relationship  (also to filter out “difficult” clients).
  1. Securing results— by checking the client’s current luck information on various aspects of life, the practitioner can pinpoint what can be done and what cannot be done.  If client is in bad wealth luck period and requests wealth enhancement, the practitioner cannot do much with Feng Shui.
  1. Doing Feng Shui enhancements and remedies—  it is more effective to design Feng Shui enhancements (like wealth/career formation) and remedies (like sleeping direction)  when the energy-preference (favorable elements) of client’s Bazi chart is decoded.
  1. Date-selection—  Application of Feng Shui enhancements and remedies will be more effective when date-selection is made with consideration of client’s Bazi.

0000_4pbcMany schools offer endless “modules” of Bazi or 4P courses that many Feng Shui practitioners may not have the time or resource to take.

While I taught a Feng Shui seminar in Los Angels in 2003, a student had asked me if I could create a comprehensive Bazi course for Feng Shui practitioners.   “4-Pillars Bootcamp” was created in 2005 and remains a top seller for me.

There are 3 types of people in this world:

  1. People who do not believe in Feng Shui.
  2. People who blame Feng Shui whenever their fortune slides and 0000_goodfortunemodify their Feng Shui.
  3. People who are successful and maximizing the Feng Shui of their houses continuously.

Below are some precautions to observe before changing the Feng Shui environment of your house.

Do NOT alter your Feng Shui:

  1. if you are currently enjoying good fortune, frequent celebrations and wealth luck

— don’t fix anything if nothing has broken and don’t be greedy for more fortune.  This includes your yin Feng Shui (tomb).

  1. if you have pregnant woman in the house

— Chinese believe remodeling and construction work will hurt the gestation environment of the fetus.  A common attribution to cleft lip baby is construction a0000_sicknd operations of sharp objects in the house during gestation.  This includes not moving to another house during a pregnancy.

  1. if you have severely sick patient in your house

—  a severely sick patient is already low in vital energy and  would suffer greatly if clashed by unfamiliar new energy/ qi.

  1. if your house has severe sha-qi or spiritual disturbance

—  with severe sha-qi (negative energy), change made in one area can easily induce other unintended consequences.  With spiritual disturbance (ghosts or karma-debt related), Feng Shui remedies will have little effect and may provoke even more repercussions.

Sometimes, obstacles and bad fortune are attributed to one’s bad annual or 10-years luck periods of your Bazi or 4-Pillars chart.  You may want to consult a Bazi reader to make sure your current misfortune is NOT due to your destiny before doing any Feng Shui changes.  Safety and health are more important than enhancing fortune or wealth luck.

00000badluckWhen things do not go your way,  success slips away in the last minute, people backstabbing you, appliance breaking down, losing money, accidents, illness and the likes keep popping up…. or simply put, “Life sucks!”. You are in a bad luck period.

Chinese metaphysics considers “yang” or positive energy brings vitality and good luck to a person.  Bad luck is caused by an excess of “yin” or negative energy.  The remedy is to increase “yang energy” and reduce “yin energy” around and inside a person .

Below are some easy ways to add more “yang energy” into your system to improve your luck:

  1. Go to places with crowds—  Living people is a major source of vital or yang energy.  Places like shopping mall, university, concert hall and parks.  But avoid hospital and cemetery which have more yin than yang energy.0000holdbaby
  2. Hug or hold babies—  Babies have more yang energy than adults.
  3. Sit under the sun before 3 pm—  Sunshine is a good source of yang energy.  11am- 1 pm has the most yang energy of the day.  Just be careful of not getting sunburn.
  4. Swim in the sea before 3 pm–  sea water has salt that is good for washing away negative energy from your body.  Bathing in hot spring is also great too.
  5. Take a bath with lemon leaves water— to wash away negative energy and cleanse your body.
  6. Visit people who are successful (i.e. in good luck period) and avoid people in bad luck period.
  7. Go to celebrations like wedding, birthday (esp. for newborn baby) parties and avoid funeral and visiting the sick.
  8. Hug a healthy tree to absorb its energy.  But this must be done before 3 pm or the tree will absorb your energy instead.
  9. Walk with your bare feet on the beach (on ground is OK) or on the grass to absorb some earth energy and release your excess yin energy.
