Double Deck Beds: Hinders Growth and Lacks Support!

Published Setyembre 22, 2017 by jptan2012

double deck bedRecently, I was talking to a mom who laments the fact that her daughter is hoping to a promotion which seems elusive. She is a regular reader of this blog and somehow instinct tells her that there is something wrong with where her daughter sleeps. You see by reading this blog she instinctively understood the basic principle or guidelines of Feng Shui and she somewhat knows that what hinders her daughter’s career growth or progress is because she sleeps at the lower deck of the double deck or double decker bed.

Sleeping in double deck bed is a Feng Shui blunder, if you sleep at the lower deck it hinders growth, and when you sleep at the upper deck it signifies lack of support does making things harder. If this is unavoidable it is better to sleep at the upper deck but the best option is really just to avoid sleeping on a double deck bed whether you sleep at the lower or upper deck.

Four Different Types of Luck Base on Your Kua Number

Published Mayo 16, 2012 by jptan2012

A few post ago, I wrote about – WHAT IS FENG KUA NUMBER AND HOW TO CALCULATE IT. In that particular post I wrote about the different types of luck and bad luck base on different directions as dictated by your Kua number.

Today, allow me to share with you the 4 different types of good luck base on your Kua number. The four different good lucks are SHENG CHI (Success), TIEN YI (HEALTH), NIEN YEN (Relationship/Love) and FU WEI (Personal Development/Growth).

It’s advisable to always bring a compass with you if you really want to ensure that you always activate your lucky directions.

SHENG CHI, which I have indicated as the ‘Success’ direction, is actually loosely translated as ‘generating chi’ or ‘generating energy’. Most Feng Shui experts and Chinese believes that this is the best amongst all the four different luck, because this largely governs your personal success, especially in business, or if it is wealth growth and prosperity that you’re looking for. This direction also governs your ‘political’ potential. By political I don’t mean it to be the real sense of politics but more of how you handle situation in your professional life.  This is also the direction that governs your recognition luck.

TIEN YI is loosely translated as ‘heaven’s doctor’. This largely governs one’s health. If you are experiencing health problems or is afflicted with the illness star it’s best to have your head face the direction of your Tien Yi when sleeping, just make sure that the illness star is not in that direction on that particular year. However, Tien Yi is not only about health, it also provides medium range wealth and career luck. So some people consider this as the second best luck.

NIEN YEN’s loose translation is ‘descendant and longevity’, but as you can see the English translation that I indicated is RELATIONSHIP/LOVE, because this directions basically deals with primarily family relationship luck and descendant’s luck. This is also the luck that governs your all your relationship that includes love life. This is also a secondary health direction, so if you’re sick and is unable to face your Tien Yi direction, this is the second option.

FU WEI’s loose translation is ‘basic self’. This is the direction that largely governs your personal growth but is not related to career and/or financial growth. This direction is largely associated with people who need to seek enlightenment or needs to know what they want to do in life. This is also a direction that is largely beneficial to those who need to seek spirituality and clarity. If you’re going through a lot of personal problem, this is the direction to activate.

It’s quite easy for us to misinterpret that Sheng Chi is the best luck; in fact, this is the case with most Chinese and some Feng Shui experts. However, I don’t think this is the case, each of the lucky and it’s corresponding directions base in your Kua number serves it’s own purpose. For example, you may be enjoying career success and financial luck but is going through a tough personal fulfillment phase; you can activate your Fu Wei and need not concentrate too much on your Sheng Chi. You also may be a successful businessman, but your health of family life is bad, then you can activate your Tien Yi and Nien Yen respectively. It’s really finding the right balance and looking for what’s missing in your life or what would be your priority.

How do you activate these directions, it’s quite simple, you just face that direction when working and eating. When sleeping your head should be towards the direction you want to activate.

If you have the lucky directions, you also have the unlucky directions. If you wish to know more about it you can read my post – FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF BAD LUCK BASE ON YOUR KUA NUMBER.

Myth Buster 9: Bonsai Plants are Auspicious

Published Mayo 8, 2012 by jptan2012

A few years back a cousin requested for my help because he was encountering some financial difficulty. While his situation is not yet critical, his financial growth became stagnant. This is worrisome because the projected financial growth of his business is not meeting its expectations. He is also especially worried because he was relatively newly married (about a year) at that time and his wife was pregnant with their first baby. So the stress that he must be feeling is quite expected.

My cousin has always followed Feng Shui and I know that he has good business acumen. On top of that, his wife, before they got married, was base in Japan as a financial consultant and from what I know she is also shrewd when it comes to business. So I really wondered what could be wrong.

I did the Feng Shui of the house and office of my cousin, and he clarified that they hadn’t done much of a renovation. He also clarified, that his wife whose hobby is to do gardening is taking care of their garden pretty well. I inquired about their garden because I know that my cousin’s financial luck is largely ruled by the South where their garden is. Unable to find anything wrong, I decided to go and pay them a visit. I thought maybe there’s a new house or building around their area that’s affecting their Feng Shui.

Everything seems to be fine around their house, and inside their house everything was pretty much done the way I suggested. But when I saw their garden, I saw that while it’s now more beautiful and properly taken care of there’s something that might have been affecting their financial situation. Bonsai plants. My cousin-in-law who lived in Japan for about 7 years got fascinated with bonsai plants and went to study how to make bonsai plants.

My Feng Shui experience didn’t really involve so much bonsai plants so I really can’t be sure whether it’s the one causing the stagnant ‘growth’ of the financial growth of my cousin. However, I specifically remember that when I was in one of my Feng Shui class in Hong Kong, my Feng Shui teacher and a classmate talked about bonsai plants. Our teacher was explaining why Bonsai are unlucky, and my Japanese classmate was saying that it couldn’t be true because Japan and most Japanese who loves Bonsai are actually lucky. I really didn’t remember much of their argument but I told my cousin that the bonsai plants might be the one causing their financial concerns.

Bonsai may be pretty to look at, but because they’re stunted plants they’re essentially inauspicious.

Base on my own understanding, this is because Bonsai plants, while they’re really exquisite and pretty to look at, and can be considered to be quite an art, they’re actually not naturally small, they were stunted. Technically speaking, you have to ‘destroy’ their natural growth process for them to be small, you affect their Sheng Chi. Sheng Chi basically refers to growth, and in Feng Shui anything that is ‘stunted’ is essentially bad.

Of course, my cousin and cousin-in-law gave the same argument that my Japanese classmate raised. I told them that I’ll try to research more about it and will get back to them regarding the matter.

I called up my Hong Kong Feng Shui teacher, but just to be sure I also called up my Feng Shui teacher in Singapore. While they both essentially follow different school of thought of Feng Shui they both agreed that Bonsai plants creates bad Feng Shui. They also said that my interpretation was correct.

After being validated, I then have to raise the question if Bonsai creates bad Feng Shui, why then is Japan very successful. They said that while Bonsai is quite famous in Japan, the truth is very few people has them at home, this is because it is very hard to take care of it. Also, Bonsai only affects the luck of the sector where it is located. The bad effect to my cousin is with his financial growth because it was placed in his luck sector. If it was placed in the descendant luck sector, then the effect could be the absence of a children or bad descendant luck.

They also both said that they believe that it is affecting Japan’s descendant luck. They both said that Japan’s population is quite old, their old people are more than the younger ones, economically speaking for a country this is not a sound situation. They also added that Japan’s youth are not as respectful to their elders compared to their neighboring Asian countries.

Going back to my cousin, since my cousin – in – law is really unable to give up her Bonsai plants, I just had them place at a different section of their house. A sector where both of them won’t be really affected. I would have preferred that they totally get rid of the Bonsais but then again it’s an art for my cousin – in –law and there’s some emotional attachment. However, when their financial situation improved again after they transferred the bonsais, my cousin – in – law was the one who decided to totally get rid of the bonsais.

What is Feng Shui Kua Number and How to Calculate It

Published Mayo 5, 2012 by jptan2012

There are so many things that I want to write about that I’m unable to do so because it would require that you should have a prior knowledge of some things like your KUA NUMBER, your BASKET OF ELEMENTS and it’s WEIGHTING, etc. But some of these things would need a lot of dedication and time for you to be able to really do it yourself. I’m not sure whether I’m ready or capable of doing a ‘blog tutorial’ type of lesson. However, counting your Kua number is something that you can learn really fast so I’ve decided to share it with you now.

There are different Feng Shui schools of thought, and one of them is the Compass Feng Shui. Calculating the Kua number is a sub-thought of the Compass Feng Shui.

Basically your Kua number determines the lucky and unlucky directions of your life. I’ll discuss about these lucky and unlucky directions in details on my next post. But knowing your Kua number will determine whether you are an East or West group person and your corresponding lucky and unlucky directions.

The numbers one (1), three (3), four (4) and nine (9) belongs to the East Group. The numbers two (2), six (6), seven (7) and eight (8) belongs to the West Group. The number 5 (five) is replace by eight (8) for women, and by two (2) for men.

The four lucks are: SHENG CHI (Success), TIEN YI (HEALTH), NIEN YEN (Relationship/Love) and FU WEI (Personal Development/Growth).

The four bad lucks are: HO HAI (Unlucky), WU KWEI (Five Ghosts), LIU SHA (6 Killing), CHUEH MING (Total Loss).

If you wish to know more about these lucks and bad lucks please do read my posts FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF LUCK BASE ON YOUR KUA NUMBER and FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF BAD LUCK BASE ON YOUR KUA NUMBER.

If your Kua Number is 1 your lucky directions are – SouthEast (SHENG CHI), East (TIEN YI), South (NIEN YEN) and North (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – West (HO HAI), NorthEast (WU KWEI), NorthWest (LIU SHA), SouthWest (CHUEH MING).

If your Kua Number is 2 your lucky directions are – NorthEast (SHENG CHI), West (TIEN YI), NorthWest (NIEN YEN), and SouthWest (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – East (HO HAI), SouthEast (WU KWEI), South (LIU SHA), and North (CHUEH MING)

If your Kua Number is 3 your lucky directions are – South (SHENG CHI), North (TIEN YI), SouthEast (NIEN YEN), and East (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – SouthWest (HO HAI), NorthWest (WU KWEI), NorthEast (LIU SHA), and West (CHUEH MING).

If your Kua Number is 4 your lucky directions are – North (SHENG CHI), South ( TIEN YI), East (NIEN YEN), and SouthEast (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – Northwest (HO HAI), SouthWest (WU KWEI), West (LIU SHA), and NorthEast (CHUEH MING).

If your Kua Number is 6 your lucky directions are – West (SHENG CHI), NorthEast (TIEN YI), SouthWest (NIEN YEN), NorthWest (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are SouthEast (HO HAI), East (WU KWEI), North (LIU SHA), South (CHEUH MING)

If your Kua Number is 7, your lucky directions are – NorthWest (SHENG CHI), SouthWest (TIEN YI), NorthEast (NIEN YEN), and West (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – North (HO HAI), South (WU KWEI), SouthEast (LIU SHA), and East (Chueh Ming).

If your Kua Number is 8, your lucky directions are – SouthWest (SHENG CHI), NorthWest (TIEN YI), West (NIEN YEN) and NorthEast (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – South (HO HAI), North (WU KWEI), East (LIU SHA), and SouthEast (CHEUH MING).

If your Kua Number is 9, your lucky directions are – East (SHENG CHI), SouthEast (TIEN YI), North (NIEN YEN), and South (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – NorthEast (HO HAI), West (WU KWEI), SouthWest (LIU SHA), and NorthWest (CHUEH MING).

Calculating the Kua number of a guy from a girl slightly differ from each other. For the guy, what you need to do is take the last 2 digits of your birth year. Add them together and keep on adding them until you get a single digit. If you were born before the year 2000, deduct this number from the number 10, and 9 if you were born in the year 2000 or later. The result is your Kua number.

For example: 1973 (7+3=10 / 1+0=1 / 10-1=9) Kua Number is 9

For the women, you also take the last two digits of your birth year. Add them together and keep on adding until you get a single digit. Add 5 to this number if you were born before the year 2000, add 6 if you were born in the year 2000 or later. If the result is a two digit number, keep adding it again until you again get a single digit. This is your Kua number.

Please note that if you were born before Feb. 4 of the year, your birth year is that of the year before. For example, if you were born between Jan. 1 and Feb. 3, your birth year is that of the previous year. Let’s say you were born on Feb. 3, 2000, that means your birth year is still 1999.

Myth Buster 5: A Tortoise or Turtle Slows Down Career, Business, Wealth, and Personal Growth

Published Pebrero 25, 2012 by jptan2012

I often here people say that having a turtle as a pet or having its image in the home or office is bad. In fact, I once saw a mom scolding her son for buying a turtle for a pet without asking her permission. Heard her tell her son that having a turtle in the house is bad.

This is one of the greatest and most common misconceptions. A turtle or tortoise is considered by a lot of people as bad because it is slow and timid. However, the truth is a turtle or tortoise is one of the most powerful Feng Shui protection and enhancer one can have.

For Feng Shui purposes, will just use the term tortoise, while a turtle and a tortoise has some biological differences with each other, they are actually have the same Feng Shui effects, so in Feng Shui a turtle and a tortoise is one and the same.

As mentioned a tortoise is one of the most powerful tool one can use both as a protector and enhancer. The tortoise is one of the Four Feng Shui Animals (some people call this as 4 Celestial Animals but only two of the animals in the 4 Feng Shui Animals are actually considered celestial) that should always be present or represented in any home or establishment.

The 4 Feng Shui animals are the Green Dragon, which is in the East, the Red Phoenix that should be present in the South, the White Tiger that is located in the West, and finally, the Black Tortoise, which is in the North. However, East-West-North-South here doesn’t exactly refer to the compass direction. In an actual Feng Shui setting, East is represented by the left side of the house, South is represented by the front side of the house, West is represented by the right side of the house, and North is represented by the back of the house.

For now we’ll focus on the Black Tortoise or simply Tortoise. A Tortoise symbolizes stability, strength, and support, does it always has to be put at the backside of the house. If your family needs financial stability, putting a tortoise at the back of the house will help you have the said stability. It is a great protection and energy-strengthening tool.

Placing a tortoise behind your workplace will also give you the career stability that you need. Furthermore, it gives you the energy support that all career people need, especially if you work in a highly competitive atmosphere.

One other function of a tortoise is for longevity. In this sense, it is better to put the tortoise in the actual compass north.

You need not get a real turtle or tortoise, in fact, unless you can really take care of them properly, it is better to simply get an image of a tortoise. I personally believe a tortoise made of metal or jade works best. Getting a real tortoise, and not being able to take care of them properly may cause more harm than good, specially, if they die because of neglect.
