I hope that this post doesn’t get me into trouble and be accused of favoritism, but the truth is favoritism is something that we can’t avoid. How can you avoid playing favorites with people who makes you feel good?
Yesterday, I wrote about DU, who is now a friend that used to be only a reader. I think what really drawn me to her and her husband is the fact that they are both has a very positive personality, they exude positive chi. DU can be a little over analytical and thus it leads to her being worrisome at times, but I believe that she has a good heart and it exudes out of her that is why we became friends. In fact, to be completely honest, I can be quite selfish with my collection of Feng Shui charms and Buddhist pendants or amulets, but I find it easy to share it with DU and her husband because it doesn’t feel like I’m totally parting with those things but rather handing over them to better people.
Recently, I again had the opportunity to meet another reader. Elisa G, is from Mindanao, and although we’ve talked over the phone, we’ve never actually met in person until recently. She’s born under the sign of the dragon and although our Chinese zodiac signs doesn’t really match, she totally exudes a positive attitude, positive energy which is a reflection of her good heart that I find myself drawn to her and wanting to become her friend. In fact, she’s so positive that I find myself offering her some of the rare amulets that are with me. Something that I don’t really do because some of these amulets are quite difficult to find and I’m not sure whether I can still get them.
To be completely honest, I can be classified as a hoarder when it comes to collecting Feng Shui charms and Buddhist pendants and amulets. But both DU and Elisa G has helped me learn or are helping me learn to accept that we shouldn’t put any emotional attachment to material things, whether these are rare amulets, or an expensive piece of Feng Shui charms or Buddhist pendant. But more than that this shows the importance of having a positive personality, because it has the ability to make people feel better thus helping them become a better person.
Note: I used Elisa’s name here because she has agreed to let me put her name.
Today, allow me to share a simple, natural, inexpensive, but very effective Feng Shui enhancer for small businesses. A lot of people have been requesting for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant, but not all can afford it, but one need not despair because there are a lot of inexpensive alternative like the one I’m recommending now.
If you have a small business and you are experiencing some problems with regards to generating income, simply put some red chili peppers, on your entrance, this will surely add spice to your business. About 7 pieces should be enough.
This cure is a ‘natural’ approach to Feng Shui and is not expensive. However, you have to make sure that you replace the chili peppers before they dry up. Leaving them dry on your door will create bad luck. Please note though that this cure works for small businesses only and not for big corporations.
I saw a Facebook post that says, “ACCEPT WHAT IS, LET GO OF WHAT WAS, AND HAVE FAITH IN WHAT WILL BE!”
I totally agree with the first part of the statement, we should all accept what is, learn from it but accept it because that is something that we can no longer change. I also totally agree about letting go, in fact, in Buddhism that is something that they always teach, let go of any attachments. But I don’t think I agree that we should simply have faith in what will be because we can totally take control of what will be. We can do our best in everything to ensure that we will have a better future. It doesn’t matter whether your Buddhist, Christian, Islam and it doesn’t matter whether you believe in Feng Shui or not, the point is whatever you believe use this as an opportunity to have a better future. By better future I don’t mean financially better, although that is certainly not bad also, but it means simply do better in all aspect of your life.
A few weeks ago I went to do a Feng Shui audit of a place of a reader. I don’t really remember the context of what we are talking about but the subject of the conversation went into discussing the effects of the North. The head of the family asked me how come older generations believes that the North is really bad, and he even quoted the Chinese saying that says, “I will rather go homeless than have a free house that’s facing North!”
Being a Chinese myself, I’m familiar with this saying, and the truth is there is no truth to this saying. But where did this belief come from.
During the time of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiao Ping, the practice of real Feng Shui was banned, because they’re afraid that this might be used against them. Nevertheless, a lot of Chinese even some government officials still believe in Feng Shui and want to use this to their advantage. Because real Feng Shui experts are afraid to come out, this gave rise to charlatans and fake Feng Shui practitioners. They function under the supervision of the government, and were given some instructions. To make things easy, East has always been the best direction, and north is the worst direction.
But if you’ve been reading my blog, the truth is there is no such thing as the completely bad direction or completely good direction. It all depends on the yearly flying stars and on the Kua number of the person, or even the physical Feng Shui.
