were no poison arrows aimed at his home, but the single storey house was dank and dark. Very little sunlight could enter because the huge trees in front blocked off all the light. Each wall had a different colour and they were all in shades that made his home dull, mismatched and very yin. Te walls were also very messy as his youngest son had doodled all over the house! Furniture was sparse, dirty and unkempt. Even the beds were unmade… daily. His older children were discarding unwanted paper
by simply crushing and littering the floors. His wife was nagging all day, creating inauspicious energy daily. Even before I started to analyze the flying stars, I suggested he prune the trees to let in the light, but his reply was that he liked the shade the trees created, as they made his home cool from the scorching Malaysian sun! How was I to teach him how to better his feng shui when he wasn’t prepared to listen?
A home must be yang and not yin. Yin places are for
resting. Cemeteries are yin. Bedrooms are yin. Hospitals and police stations are yin. Get the gist? Even if I do not elaborate on the analysis of his home, I am sure you know what had to be done. Te stale energy in his home had a dominoes-effect on the energy of his family. Everyone was going down in every way. Tis is just one example of how important “energy” is for the success of your family. Recently, at our World of Feng Shui flagship store
in Mid Valley, we did our new year spring cleaning and rearranged all our displays. We cleansed our space with incense and hung red paper Dragons on the ceilings – 9 Dragons chasing ‘pearls’. We changed all lightbulbs that were fused, as good lighting is crucial for good energy, especially in a year that lacks Fire energy! We played loud music and told our staff to groove and move with the music! Te lively music also put our customers in a fabulously festive mood!
We added a great big wealth aquarium at the entrance
and a humongous wealth vase filled to the brim with ingots, crystals, coins and money between our cash machines! We wrapped a string of blinking red festive lights around a crystal tree and placed it on our cash counter to keep the chi moving! We filled a basket with golden garlic and gold bars, topped it with a golden ship sailing into our store. I have seen another smart retail store do something
similar. Tey bought some kind of disco lights and aimed them at their ceiling near the entrance to their store. Te lights when switched on shone half inside and half outside the store. Te small lighting device had thousands of tiny multi-coloured mini strobe lights that moved in circles all day and all night. Tis brought them a continual stream of customers into their chain of stores! You can apply the examples here in all kinds of ways for
your own homes and businesses! Just remember that you have to constantly change to have good feng shui. Your mind must be positive, creative and receptive. You must first want to be better, then you must think hard of what you want to do, and lastly, welcome change with open arms! Tis is my formula to success. Never be lazy when it comes to maintaining your feng shui! Keep on revitalising, repairing, reviewing and rearranging. And always make sure you oversee what is being done. It is even better if you do some of the maintenance personally, especially if the home or business belongs to you. Tere is nothing like being hands-on, for it breathes life into what you do.
