How nice if we are in the shoes of those who we hear getting lucky, receiving unexpected windfalls or about careers and businesses that soar. What does feng shui have to say?
Prosperity may broadly be classified into two types. Regular income and windfalls.
Having a fixed regular income actually is quite good but as we often agree is just not quite enough. We would like more. Who wouldn’t? J From the feng shui perspective, whether the income stream is wide or narrow depends on whether the qi is good or bad.
Qi, more correctly has to be in harmony. The feng shui master would attempt to combine the qi, tweaking it here and there to get the right combination. He would strengthen the areas where the qi is beneficial and transform those qi which are detrimental to good health and prosperity.
Can FengShui Manifest Wealth?
Certainly and it is not that difficult. That, at least, is what one master said. Within the ambit of feng shui, it looks that way. Considered that it is a way of harmonizing the natural and unseen, feng shui has many ways and methods in getting the right conditions to bear. Just like a gardener goes about churning the soil, selecting the right seeds, applying nutrients and water such that the plant grows strong and healthy, feng shui too works in a similar way.
Positioning and Manipulating Qi
Inner arrangement of the flow of latent beneficial qi is the first step. The external and internal qi is carefully considered. This is what is called the path of the qi and it is the good current qi which we would like to have flow right in.
In this, the external path of the qi is first and foremost. Next is the door area. Then the internal planning like the furniture, doors, toilets, kitchen and decorations are considered.
Both internal and external are equally important considerations.There is a paragraph in the ‘Heart Eye Guide’ which goes something like this:
In the study of Earth Qi, form is the mother and qi is the purpose as all things first begins with a form followed by its purpose. That is what is meant by the fact that the body starts from being still followed by movement. There is no such thing as qi without form nor qi without a natural order of things. To discard considering form and thinking of application, or try to get something to work without thinking of the utensil, are both ridiculous. Thus look for the qi, search out its form, judge its quality, measure its natural order and apply these at the right time; only then can the essence of ‘form is and purpose achieved’ be seen.
This paragraph is so pertinent when asking why so much feng shui has been done and yet results are not forthcoming.
Human Factor and Qi Factor
A whole lot of money in the bank has no flavor if we are always quarrelling and getting grief. Or when bad health is a regular guest. Fengshui must work on these areas as well. Just like a good reliable engine is crucial to winning the race so it is also true that if we are happy, and our body strong that we have a better chance out there in the dog-eat-dog world.
The simplest Feng shui – Door ways and space must be bright and clear
All the above mumbo jumbo isn’t very helpful, right? How can we apply them right here and now?
The answer can be kept simple:
1 Keep doorways and passageways clear which also means defined.
2 The pathways and space must be well lit, ambient, clutter free. This applies from before entering the door and throughout all areas.
3 Triangles, sharp corners are out. That effectively takes away anything that juts, is sharp, cuts, bumps or obstructs. If you turn around and curse because you have just bumped your little toe – that is a warning saying you have not got it. Curiously the favorite eight sided bagua is not the best shape for this rule.
These 3 simple steps are critical to get right before ever talking of “activating luck”. Who knows? That pot of gold at the end of the rainbow may be just three steps away. Or that perfect job may be yours for the taking. Good luck!
