The other day we talked about the wonderful Feng Shui cure that Singapore incorporated so that they can become one of the most progressive countries in the world.
Imagine a country so small devoid of natural resources and still come out as one the most progressive countries in the world. The natural order is for Asian’s to go to Europe or America to look for job, but go to Singapore and you’ll see Europeans and Americans going there not as tourist but rather to work there.
Today, allow me to share with you again another Feng Shui wonder of Singapore.
Singapore’s Suntec City houses the world’s largest fountain. The base of the fountain is located underground, and on its base perimeter lies the main basement restaurant area of Suntec City. The circular ring top of the fountain is visible at ground level. The fountain is called Fountain of Wealth, because it is said that the design of the fountain is base on a strict Feng Shui formula to help bring in money. You will notice that the flow of the water is inward, this is to continuously bring in money for Suntec City and that no money will spill outside. It is claimed that visitors to Suntec City, who walk around the central base of the Fountain three times and touching the water at all times, would gain some good luck of their own.
As mentioned most part of the fountain is beneath the ground, and surrounding the fountain above ground, is 5 buildings called One, Two, Three, Four and Five. It is said that these building represents the five fingers of the human, and in the center is the wealth. So in effect, it represents a palm and the wealth is within the center. Rumor has it, when Suntec City was making the said fountain, the city government wants them to extend the benefit to Singapore itself, thus there is a change in the design. It is said that after the Fountain of Wealth was created, Singapore further experienced an economic growth.
There is no denying that the leaders of the country has contributed a lot to the success fo the country, but there is also no denying that Singapore has incorporated Feng Shui to their country to help them propel forward.

Singapore is one of the most successful and progressive countries not only in Asia but also in the world. For such a small country with no natural resources, it has turned itself around from a poor third world country to a first world country.
Obviously, they were lucky enough to have hard working and sincere leaders who truly love their country. But, without undermining the efforts of their leaders and of their citizens, it is said that Feng Shui plays a big factor in their progress and success.
The Merlion in itself is said to guard and symbolized progress. In a much earlier post I also have talked about the dragon doors of Singapore, but perhaps one of the most innovative Feng Shui application that they did is to have all Singaporeans carry a Bagua, which symbolizes an equal balance of life’s aspirations.
At that time, they were having a big problem about Singapore’s progress. A Feng Shui master suggested that everyone should have Bagua, but they cannot force everybody to do it, because (1) not all Singaporeans are Chinese, (2) not everybody believes in Feng Shui. The solution is to come up with the one Singapore dollar in a bagua form. They later on extended this with some of their bills having the bagua sign. Furthermore, after a while they had the license sticker for their cars have the shape of the bagua also.
The Singaporean government has not acknowledged whether this is true or not, but it will certainly make you wonder why would the bagua symbol be found in their money.
I would like to add though that the use of Bagua, contrary to popular belief, is not always suggested by responsible Feng Shui experts or masters, because a slight mistake in the placement and/or in the application it can cause more problems that good chi. In fact, these days the bagua is only suggested as a last resort and also is applied with extreme caution. A Feng Shui master should always manage the placing of bagua. If somebody suggest you put a bagua without checking the location or without personally managing or overlooking it, then it is a sure sign that that person is not a real or is not a responsible Feng Shui consultant.
