Just recently I was talking about my reader BM. Regular readers of this blog may remember BM because I have written about her several times. Although she has received her Vajrapani Ruel, Surangama Mantra Amulet, I have written mostly about her compassion and generosity to other people.
Today, I would like to write a short post about her again. As mentioned I was recently talking to BM, and BM strikes me as somebody who can afford luxury brands like Prada, Hermes, Louis Vitton, etc. She can very well afford said brands because being a successful businesswoman (she has a salon business, a spa, garments which gets big projects, she also real estate and by real estate she has a building where she rents out commercial spaces), and she can very easily justify buying them by saying that she has to project a certain image to her clients. But she didn’t’ buy those luxurious brands. Why? Because she said it’s not fair to have those ridiculously expensive luxurious brands while some people continue to suffer. She said she would rather share that extra money with her staff than spend all those money for a single bag.
Today, I would like to share another simple yet quite effective way to make sure our Feng Shui luck is reenergized with the use of perfume.
Perfume is a natural way of enhancing your chi or if you’re having a bad Feng Shui day. All you have to do is to spray on some perfume and you will have naturally, albeit temporary, cured your Feng Shui for the day.
I first learned about the ‘Perfume Cure’ when I was still young man and still under the guidance of my Feng Shui teacher. I was in Hong Kong at that time and my Feng Shui teacher and I are about to leave his office to do a Feng Shui home audit when somebody called him on the landline (mobile phones are not yet in vogue then). My Feng Shui teacher who is in a hurry listened for awhile to the woes of the person, and he somewhat told him that we were in a rush and that for now all the person have to do is spray some perfume. Well, I personally haven’t tried this but have recommended this cure to some friends before and they said it worked. But remember this is a temporary and only a cure for a day.
According to my Feng Shui teacher, preferably natural perfume oil extracted from plants or flowers is the best one to use. However, these days it is quite impractical so commercially available perfumes are a very good alternative. Just try to make sure that the oil versus alcohol ratio is still high in favor of the oil. Meaning, the more natural perfume oil the better. The sad news is that the more perfume oil there is the more expensive the perfume is. I personally, prefer the following brands Clinique Happy, Banana Republic, Hermes, Eternity, only because they have more fruity scent, which is also very good for Feng Shui use.
You can also make your own perfumed water by boiling some water with fragrant herbs or flowers. For this I personally prefer cinnamon or saffron. But saffron is quite expensive.
Just be careful, because some Buddhist temples, in particular Zen Buddhist temples, frown upon people who wear excessive perfume inside the temple because it is deemed disrespectful because perfumes are more often used as an offering for the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas.
