SIDE TABLE WITH HORSES
Q I have a side table with four horses being driven by a man standing on a carriage. They seem to be flying in the clouds. Is this auspicious and where should I place this table?
A Yes this is very auspicious! A man standing on a carriage pulled by horses is a sign of victory and progress. You can place your table in the South location; this is the zodiac palace of the Horse and also the sector that brings career advancement and recognition.
GENERAL AMULET FOR HEALTH WEALTH AND HAPPINESS
Q What are the basic amulets (health, wealth, protection) one should have in the home and to carry in the bag?
A I highly recommend wearing Goddess Tara’s amulet, HUM or OM pendant as daily amulet. Any of the three items mentioned are excellent for general protection and they become more powerful when you chant mantras and blow over them. Then on your handbag, clip on the Ten Hum Protection Wheel keychain. WOFS makes a few different colours of these Ten Hum Protection Wheel keychains which you can match stylishly with your outfit. Although they look like a fashion accessory, they are very powerful for dispelling bad vibrations and repelling petty harm that comes your way.
HOW TO DISPEL BAD LUCK FROM BUYING SLIPPERS DURING CHINESE NEW YEAR
Q On the second day of Chinese New Year this year, I bought myself a new pair of slippers. Later on, I was told we should not buy slippers during CNY as it will be a tough year for that person. Please advise any feng shui remedy to overcome the tough year.
A Yes, this is a taboo that my grandmother was very strict about. The Chinese associate slippers with poverty… thus when you buy slippers during the Chinese New Year it multiplies the energy of a hard life. Similarly, we were always taught by my grandmother that you should not wear short pants during the first three days of Chinese New Year. I think the easiest way to transform this luck is to buy yourself a new pair of closed-toe shoes and throw away those slippers. When throwing away the slippers you should declare loudly – “I overcome my difficult luck already”. Chuck it into the bin and then put on your brand new swanky shoes! That’s all you have to do…and I suggest doing this on the New Moon Day or Full Moon Day.
MY SISTER MIGHT HAVE STOLEN MY GOLDEN BUDDHA
Q Someone has stolen my little golden Buddha from my house. What should I do? I suspect that it might be my sister… as she suddenly got a Golden Buddha that looks like mine. Should I confront her?
A The best way to deal with this is to say in your mind to your sister “I give you this Buddha”. And then invite a new one into your home. Buddha’s image is very precious and it can bring so much blessings into your life. You can really help your sister by giving it to her. Even if you suspect she has stolen it, you can transform this negative thing into a good deed by mentally offering it to her as a gift. Rejoice that she has suddenly acquired a Buddha in her home! By doing this – you create the wonderful merit of generosity as well as save her from incurring the negative karma of stealing. There is really no point in confronting her or feeling negative about it. If you confront her, your relationship with your sister will suffer either way – if she did it you will be angry. If she didn’t do it, she will be angry that you accused her. So don’t feel negative about it. Be generous in your heart and offer it to her. Now you have the perfect opportunity to invite another Buddha into your home – and the merit of doing this is enormous!
WILL MY HUSBAND HAVE A MISTRESS IF I HAVE TWO OF EACH KITCHEN APPLIANCE?
Q If my house has 2 stoves, 2 kettles, 2 rice cookers, 2 refrigerators, does it mean that the Patriarch will have a mistress?
A Hahaha! No, please don’t worry about that. In fact having two of each kitchen appliance is a symbol of great abundance and can be very useful if you want to practice Kua formula feng shui in your kitchen! You can arrange one set of kitchen appliances so that East Group people use all the appliances where the electric power enters from the East group direction, and the second set for those who are West Group.
