can I do to make sure I never see a particular someone, and that the
person will never bother me again? She is someone who has married into
the family and she brings heartache and anger to everyone with her
attitude and it is getting quite unbearable. Her mere presence brings
hatred and anger among the rest of family and is creating negative chi
for all of us. Can feng shui help? Thank you.
WELL, first, lets deal with your problem – if she does not stay with
you, it is easy enough to avoid seeing her too much, but if you are
living in the same house, it can get a bit sticky and you might to try
using feng shui to bring some semblance of calm and peace into the
house to overcome her energy.
Get two things: one, a red mandala print or painting and hang it in the
Northwest corner of the living room. This is sure to make suppress
quarrelsome energy in the living area of the home. The second thing you
can do is place a plate of red apples in the centre of your home –
either on the coffee table or the dining table. Keep replenishing with
red apples. The Chinese believe that the presence of apples in the home
brings peace and harmony and the colour red suppresses anger.
Surprising, I know, but red is ‘fire’ energy, which exhausts the wood
energy of anger. If you use water, the anger get worse, did you know
But most of all, you should also make a real effort to “tolerate” and
be magnanimous. Perhaps she is not as bad as you think. Give her a
chance. Her “attitude” may well be due to her own feelings of
insecurity and if you give in to your dislikes, the situation is sure
HAVE some problems with my family. My husband can’t find work and he
has become depressed because of this situation. It is getting difficult
living with him. I have a job but my work is not enough. We do not have
enough money to live on.
We are staying
in my mother-in-law’s apartment with our 7 year-old boy. Our apartment
has windows orientated to the North and the main door to the South. The
kitchen is in the East. After the kitchen is the bathroom and living
room (in the centre of the apartment) and the bedroom is in the West.
The bedroom continues onto the balcony.
the way, my husband was born on Oct 27, 1968 and he is kua number 5. I
was born on Nov 12, with kua number 7 and our child was born on Jan 26,
1999 with kua number 2. Please help. Thank you!
To start with, your husband is a Metal Monkey, so 2007 will bring him a
very exciting new opportunity. In terms of his personal luck, there
appears to be little to fret over. Being a Monkey person, he is
probably feeling frustrated and also a little bit insecure. Be strong,
my dear. Marriage is about good times and bad times. It is about
helping one another and lending support during difficult months.
The feng shui problem
here is that your husband is a West group person with a Kua of 5 – yet
you are all living in an East-facing and sitting apartment. All the chi
energy coming into the apartment does not directly benefit him, so I
would like to advise you to try and find a sleeping position where he
can sleep with his head pointing Southwest. This is a powerful and
excellent direction for him, especially this year. Move to a new
bedroom if you have to. This is sure to jump-start his luck.
Then, in the window near the North corner, get a nice, beautiful water
feature and place a Dragon (friend of Monkey) next to it. Your husband
should soon find something exciting in no time at all. Meanwhile,
remember to stay supportive and not to get into a syndrome of feeling
sorry for yourself or for him. Do not make a small hiccup turn into
something big. Your problems are temporary.
I STAY with my in-laws and our house is facing Southwest. We seem to
face many financial difficulties. My husband’s horoscope is Horse and
he is 27 years old. He is working as a sub-contractor. He is always
having difficulties in collecting payment from the company he is
dealing with. I was born in the year of the Rabbit. My problem is we
are always short of money. My salary is little for someone who has
worked for more than 10 years. We don’t have any balance money each
month. Please give me some advise to overcome our problems. Your reply
is very much appreciated. Thank you. With regards, SML.
SURPRISE, surprise! I am using my new column in the Weekend Mail to answer
the many letters sent in to me each week. First of all, I want to tell
you that your husband’s luck this year is very much better than it’s
going to be next year and since you live in a house that faces
southwest you must make a real effort to capture the luck of the
southwest, which is the most auspicious direction in 2007. Do this by
placing a water feature here. Use a compass and locate the SW corner of
the living room. From your description, this sounds like where the door
is, as the house faces SW. Place a waterfall with water appearing to
flow inwards, towards the house. When you “activate” the SW of the
living room with water this way, you will be giving strength to what is
known as the “indirect spirit” of this period. Doing this is one of the
most powerful feng shui methods of improving your income luck. It also
works pretty fast as well. I would advise you to implement this
recommendation soon, in order to capture the SW luck for the rest of
the year. Try to get the six tier waterfall which I specially designed
for this purpose. Install it near the front of the house (in the SW)
and keep the water flowing through the night and day. Your husband will
have much better luck collecting money owed to him and you (and your
in-laws) too will find money coming into the home more easily.
But you must
remember to keep the chi flowing. When money becomes more available do
not be afraid to spend and also give help to others. Once money starts
to flow in, you MUST keep the flow moving by letting some money flow
out as well. It is only by being generous – with yourself and with
others – that you will be subconsciously doing “prosperity
you help me solve some of my staff problems? I have experienced staff
but they don’t seem to have the mood to work. Can I use feng shui to
overcome this problem?
one of the best reasons to learn feng shui. When staff morale is low or
when there appears to be a shortage of energy, it is almost always due
to some feng shui affliction or another. I have discovered time and
again that whatever things start to go wrong with the staff, either
because they all get sick at the same time, or there appears to be a
high level of absenteeism, or there is disharmony, something in the
office feng shui needs attending to. Usually the cause is easy to
In your case, it
sounds like something in your office is depleting your staff of their
energy. This may be due to some element imbalance, either a shortage of
some element or an excess of an element. It can also be due to
excessive yin chi. This is usually the case when the office gets too
cluttered and there are corners of stagnating chi. Try giving your
office a major overhaul or spring cleaning to get the energy moving
again? Just shift the furniture out, clean and move the furniture back
again. This cure is almost always very effective and is called “moving
wondering if you can help houses other than the one that you live in.
My boyfriend lives in a house where relationship corner also contains
the toilet! If I place some crystals and encourage him to keep the seat
down, will this help prevent our relationship going down the toilet?
SOUNDS like you have a problem here but your method of remedying it is
incorrect. In fact, if you place crystals in your relationship corner –
and it is in the toilet – what happens is that he would probably get
hooked up with some unsavoury female and leave you high and dry.
Whenever the relationship corner is afflicted by the presence of a
toilet and then you go and activate it with crystals, it will almost
always cause residents to have relationship with people who bring bad
luck, loss and heartache. In this case, better to suppress the energy
of the toilet with plants. And yes, keep the toilet seat down.
