Unlock a Life Bursting with Prosperity, Love and Purpose

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

I know that ancient sciences are built on the eternal spiritual truths that underlie all religions and must be treated with respect.  I also know that we are connected to everything in this world – not just our immediate environment, but to the unseen energies of stars, planets and spiritual forces. When you unify practices like spirituality and meditation with the wisdom of energy sciences like astrology, Feng Shui, Vaastu, and numerology you align your life with eternal spiritual truths and profound power to change your life.

Stop living on autopilot! If we’re not careful, we can wind up living on autopilot – not feeling we have any real control over the course of our lives or the confusion, chaos and frustration we experience.  But what if I told you that you do have control … tremendous control! … and that you can exercise it immediately with actions as simple as choosing the right date to open a bank account, deflecting negative energies in your home, or even wearing the right color clothes to send energetic vibrations that help others feel a positive connection with you before you even say a word.

The secret, however, is that the secrets change. There is no one “wealth corner” in your home.  There is no one “health color.”  A Feng Shui “cure” that stilled negative energy in March could stifle cash flow in April – unless it’s moved.  Why?  Because energy moves and our relationship to the stars, planets, positive forces, and negative forces is always changing, too.

The secret is to change with these energies. And now, I’ll show you how — with my monthly teleseminar series.  Sign up now!

10 Top Classical Feng Shui Tips to Ensure Your Front Door Isn’t Sabotaging Your Success

Monday, March 19th, 2012

An expert Classical Feng Shui consultant will be able to tell about 75% of what’s happening in your life by analyzing your front entrance, bedroom and kitchen. Sounds unbelievable, but it’s not. Advanced Classical Feng Shui formulas can forecast the impact these areas will have on occupants of the home. The more people who pass through a doorway, the more active the flow of energy and the more influential the door becomes. While these calculations are tied to the unique energy makeup of you and your home, these general principles can help you ensure that your front door radiates positive energy:

1. Your front door creates a first impression for you and others who enter. A home with a welcoming entrance will put visitors at ease and attract good fortune. The path leading to your doorway should be clear and open so that there are no obstacles blocking the flow of energy into your home. Remove old newspapers, garden hoses, bicycles, overgrown or dead plants and trees. Keeping the path open allows good opportunities to flow into your life. Also clean away any cobwebs. Having an attractive doormat, and planting lush flowers and plants along the walkway and near the front entrance encourages good energy to enter your home and makes your home more inviting.

2. A front door that opens clockwise into the home channels more energy inside. All doors should open fully and easily. Remove anything placed behind a door that doesn’t allow it to open completely. Re-consider any self-closing mechanisms – or anything that lets a door open or close automatically: your door should symbolize that you are in control. Are you feeling beset by one obstacle after another? Get out your oil can and eliminate any squeaks, creaks or locks that are hard to open. Repair and spruce up your front door as soon it shows any of these signs of wear and tear.

3. A solid front door is better than a glass door and provides more protection and support. Glass paneling above the door is okay. Your house number or name should be clearly visible. Positioning the individual numbers of your address on an upward slant is auspicious too. The clearer the identification, the better it is for your career, recognition and an active social life.

4. Your front door should be proportionate in size to the home. If it is too large, it can cause financial difficulty and opportunities to be lost. If it is too small, it can create discord within the family. Also, if the front door is made up of two panel sections, then they should be equal in size and color.

5. Your front door should not face churches, cemeteries or funeral homes. These places illicit a tremendous amount of yin energy and can potentially cause depression, illness, fears and the potential for financial loss. You can plant bushes, small trees or add a retaining wall to obstruct the view from these unfortunate sites. However, do not plant a single tree directly in line with your front door since it will block beneficial energy from entering your home.

6. Your front door should not face telephone poles or sharp corners (known as poison arrows) from neighboring rooftops or buildings. The electromagnetic voltage emanating from electrical stations or telephone poles can cause health difficulties. And poison arrows pointing at your front door can cause bad luck, illness amongst children or even problems in career or business. While it is best to avoid such an entrance, you can plant small trees to block the view. A more expensive cure would be to reorient the front door.

7. Your front entrance should not face a narrow gap between two buildings. If so, it can potentially cause your savings to be squandered away. In both authentic Feng Shui and Vaastu, what you see is what you get. So, no “gaps” and neither should your front door face a dumpster or garbage heap — not even one that is far away. (I know this seems like common sense but just recently I saw a few homes facing this.) By hiding the view, you will minimize the negative effects coming from an adverse site. Plant small bushes or add a small retaining wall to cover up any such sight.

8. Your front door should preferably open into a large bright foyer or a living room. It should feel warm and welcoming. You should not be greeted by a wall when entering your home. On a subconscious level, it is as if you are daily walking into a wall which is blocking you as you try to move forward in life. Place a picture on this wall that has depth and dimension to it. You could place a mirror on a side wall but do not place a mirror directly in front of the main door.

9. In Asian countries, people will take off their shoes just inside the front entrance. Just imagine all the dust, dirt and dead energy our shoes bring into our home. Taking shoes off not only keeps your home purer, it keeps you more grounded to your home’s beneficial earth energies. As C. Jung said, “When you walk with naked feet, how can you forget the earth.” If you do remove your shoes when entering your home, keep them in a closet rather than blocking the front entrance. Culturally, westerners may not have the same outlook. So it is important then to at least clean and replace your doormat regularly since it also absorbs dirt, dust and stagnant energy.

10. If you enter through your garage door or another side entrance, then that door serves as your main entrance. The first place you come into when entering your home influences your state of mind. It is important than that this area also be clean and organized. Place a welcome sign in the garage or greet yourself with an inspirational photo or saying that makes you smile. Paint the room an attractive color and beautify this space just as you would the formal entrance.

In essence, the experience of entering your home should be like meeting a best friend — one who is warm, welcoming and ready to support you and put you at ease. By making the adjustments recommended above, your warm, welcoming entrance will help attract good fortune to your home.

Classical Feng Shui: How Classical Feng Shui Can Strengthen Your Cash Flow

Friday, March 16th, 2012

In this weak economy, it simply takes longer to close deals. In fact, I’m hearing from more and more business people who are frustrated that even customers who are still in a strong financial position seem to be in a holding mode – waiting to see what happens before they make any decisions. Clearly, keeping cash flow strong is a huge concern. Fortunately, as my clients will attest, Classical Feng Shui can give you an extra edge in attracting and landing new business – and even new careers.

As always, I must emphasize that harnessing authentic Feng Shui to stimulate cash flow requires calculations based on your unique horoscope, the layout of your home or office, and the monthly energetic shifts in the environment. That said, I’d like to share with you five general tips that can help you quickly improve your cash flow situation.

1. Consider placing a moving water fountain in the west sector of your home. This year a “prosperous” planetary influence is visiting the west. A fountain with clean water that runs continuously can activate the unseen energies which have the potential to bring about “money luck”. Do keep in mind, however, that this is a general tip. For example, with my own clients, depending on their specific horoscope and what area of the home or office occupies the west sector, I may not recommend water or I may recommend combining water with additional recommendations to further strengthen the pull of positive money energy.

2. Be mindful of the colors in your home office, workplace and home. Just recently, I was in a small business and just from observing the energetic make-up of the interior – particularly the vibration of colors — I could tell at once that this business was experiencing cash flow problems. (And this was a business that should have been thriving despite the current economic situation!) Now, there are no “bad” colors. The problem comes when certain colors combine with other unseen energies. A color that offers a calm, peaceful vibration in the bedroom, can be disastrous in a home office. Blue, for example, is one of the colors that should be used cautiously. While blue alone will not spell disaster, it can often combine with other energies to eventually depress your cash flow.

3. Clean out the old to make way for the new. Clutter weighs down the energies around you. Clutter is anything in your environment that is in disrepair or that you no longer like or use. It’s anything that is unfinished, in disorder, messy or stacked up. You have to physically create “space” in order to attract “things” into your life. Pay special attention to your desk: Clear away objects that sabotage energy flow. Clutter isn’t just messy; it’s a magnet for attracting negative energy. If your desk and floor are scattered with unfinished projects, papers, files and mail, energy can’t flow freely. Trapped energy either goes stagnant or builds up into a force that can make you feel jittery, overwhelmed, irritable, fatigued or depressed. In such an environment, you’ll find it’s hard to concentrate and complete tasks. Clean out your file drawers. It’s a basic principle of physics that nature abhors a vacuum – so clear your space and fresh, new things will flow into your life. If your business is slow right now, try decluttering and see if new clients don’t quickly appear!

4. Get rid of clients. In this weak economy, who can afford to get rid of clients, right? Wrong! Holding onto clients who don’t value you or who give you a hard time about payments can depress the energetic make-up of your business environment. Get rid of clients who no longer serve you and – as in #3 above – you create room for fresh, new clients to come into your life.

5. Expect wealth. Today’s headlines can be scary. But don’t allow yourself to fall into a pattern of fear. This vibration will not only attract more fear to you, it will activate the negative energies that may already exist in your home or office environment. Even in this tough economy, I have clients who are pulling in money, raises and abundance because that is the kind of energy they are attracting. So, for robust cash flow, combine powerful “wealth thoughts” with exterior projections of those thoughts: keep your front entrance vibrant and fresh, keep your office or retail space shining, and do everything you can to get your environment ready to welcome a steady flow of wealth and good fortune!

The Science of Classical Feng Shui

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Have you ever wondered why some places make you feel tense or uneasy, while other places give you a feeling of calm and vitality? The reason is that the earth’s magnetic field and universal energies exert a profound influence. In fact, every geographic direction emits a different quality of energy. We feel the “pull” of all these energies because our brain and body are electrical conductors. In the brain, for instance, the thalamus serves as the relay center for sensory and motor activities. Neurological research shows that when you face different directions, the neurons in the thalamus fire in different patterns.

Science also accepts that at a cellular level the body responds to the different directions. For example, mitochondria – the tiny parts that give a cell its energy – line up differently according to the direction in which you sleep.

By aligning your body with certain energies or a specific magnetic axis, the “pull” of these natural forces flow with you rather than against you. Things seem more effortless and less of a struggle and you feel supported.

Feng Shui & Vaastu: It’s Serious Business

Monday, March 5th, 2012

The way your office is set up, where you place your desk, the colors you use, and even the lighting all have an effect on how you do business. Authentic Feng Shui can help you clear away negative energies – and energy blockages – that can sabotage efficiency, productivity and profitability. Advanced Classical Feng Shui formulas can even forecast where and when risks and opportunities might arise and what you can do to assure the greatest possible benefit.

While these calculations and even basic furniture placement are tied to the unique energy makeup of you and your office, these three general principles can help you create a supportive work environment.

1. Clear away objects that sabotage energy flow. Clutter isn’t just messy; it’s a magnet for attracting negative energy. If your desk and floor are scattered with unfinished projects, papers, files and mail, energy can’t flow freely. Trapped energy either goes stagnant or builds up into a force that can make you feel jittery, overwhelmed, irritable, fatigued or depressed. In such an environment, you’ll find it’s hard to concentrate and complete tasks. Problems build up, creativity suffers and conflicts arise. Every item should have a designated home where you can find and easily access it. Take time to organize your files and use them so you don’t have to keep pieces of paper “in sight” just so you’ll know where they are. Clear the jumble from your desktop so that your eye – and the energy in your space – have calm places to rest. And don’t forget the jumble on your computer: regularly clear away unnecessary email and files.

2. Reposition your desk. A sizable and neatly arranged desk attracts power and confidence. As a general rule, the best position for a desk is in the far right corner diagonally opposite from the door with your back to the wall or catty corner to the wall. In addition, try to avoid these three situations:

Don’t put your desk in a direct line with the door. The energy coming from another office or hallway can cause discomfort. You may find yourself unable to concentrate and want to leave your desk.

Don’t sit with your back to the door. You should have a clear view of the room and office door. This gives you energetic control over the space which, in turn, attracts energies that support you in feeling capable, relaxed, and confident.

Don’t sit at a desk that places you directly under an exposed overhead beam. That beam can concentrate energies in the area right over your head. If you spend eight or ten hours at your desk, you could find you suffer from headaches and you could literally feel you are “under too much pressure.”

3. Balance your office lighting. Lighting doesn’t just affect your eyes or even your mood. It also affects the energy in your office. Light – even sunlight – that is too bright creates an excessively “yang” energy that can cause agitation, conflict, and difficulty concentrating. By the same token, light that’s too dim creates an excessively “yin” energy that can produce fatigue and make it difficult to project a confident, capable presence. Feng Shui principles help balance your office’s lighting so that it’s bright enough to energize the space without disrupting harmony and concentration. Consider using natural spectrum light bulbs – they provide a more balanced light than traditional bulbs. Outfit windows with blinds that can filter and direct sunlight to prevent harsh shadows and glare. Consider desk lamps – they give you more flexibility in adjusting your overall lighting and then help balance the glare your computer screen can produce.

5 Classical Feng Shui Tips to Ensure You Make A Date With Prosperity!

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Are you about to open up a bank account, get married, schedule surgery or make a business presentation? The date you select can have a tremendous impact on the outcome.

In Asia, people do not schedule major life events without first checking to see whether a certain date is auspicious — with the planets aligned in your favor for a certain event. This may sound silly to westerners, but Classical Feng Shui calculations can in fact assess whether a particular date has good energy for you and can support an auspicious outcome for the actions you take upon that date.

In today’s economy, who can afford not to use every edge in making plans and moving forward?

Here are 5 situations where Feng Shui date selection can make all the difference:

1. A Major Purchase A Classical Feng Shui practitioner can pinpoint an auspicious date by matching your energy to the right combination of planetary influences. For instance, Feng Shui can reveal days when the combination of influences will virtually guarantee that the car you buy on those dates will give you trouble – and could even attract multiple accidents. Even if you’re not a reckless driver, an inauspicious purchase date can set the tone for what’s ahead.

Case in point: Someone I know bought a brand new Audi a few years ago. He had it regularly serviced by an experienced mechanic. But a few months ago, the car’s engine broke down completely. Even worse, the damage was caused by a small error on the part of the mechanic which voided the car’s warranty. The Audi owner was left with a completely worthless car on which he still owed a substantial amount of money. I went back and looked at the actual purchase date and what I saw shocked me: The stars on this day for this particular person indicated that the purchase would be “short lived”.

2. Making Investments If you buy investments on a day when there is money luck in your unique Feng Shui chart, you will make money. If there’s no money luck in your chart, you WILL NOT make money — guaranteed. Yes, even in this volatile market, you can still make money IF you choose the right date. But on an inauspicious day, even a pick that’s touted as a “darling” of Wall Street will still result in a loss for you. That’s right: even if the price of that stock rises over time, the energies of that investment are still linked to the inauspicious energies at work the day you bought it and inevitably circumstances in your own life will cause you to have to sell at a loss. Keep in mind, everything in the universe is energy and while everything appears random, nothing is a coincidence.

3. Surgery If you need surgery or a medical procedure, selecting an auspicious date is of paramount importance. Suppose, for instance, you’re having surgery to remove a cancerous or even a benign tumor. You don’t want to have that procedure on a day when certain energetic influences favor “regrowth”. Instead, you want to pick a day where the energies will help ensure that the tumor will not grow back. Similarly, if you’re undergoing plastic surgery for cosmetic reasons, you want to select a date that indicates you will be pleased with the results — and help you avoid a botched nose job, complications from a face lift or other unpleasant surprises.

4. Business Decisions If you’re submitting proposals, opening up a bank account, taking on a partner, or even incorporating your business, date selection can give you a significant advantage. Even if you’re undertaking advertising or marketing projects, certain planetary influences can make your efforts easier — and give you an advantage over competitors. Suppose, for example, that you want to incorporate your new business. Choosing an auspicious date is critical because it becomes the birthdate of your business. Through Feng Shui, you can look ahead and find a date that is marked for you with money-making potential. I had a client whose business simply limped along despite all the hard work she poured into it. After analyzing her incorporation date, I suggested she close the old corporation and reincorporate on a new date. Within less than 6 weeks of reincorporating on a date that had strong money-luck potential, her business started booming like she had never experienced before. She wasn’t working harder — but her business horoscope was now working with her rather than against her.

5. Renovating If you’re planning on renovating your home, the date on which work begins is crucial. In India, there are even certain times during the year when no construction work takes place because of certain inauspicious energies. When you combine your own Feng Shui horoscope with planetary influences, certain dates can indicate energies that will attract major delays, shoddy construction, and disappointing results. You’ve heard horror stories where contractors run off with the money and leave the job unfinished. Taking the precaution of picking a “good” date can help prevent that from happening – and it can help make sure the improvements live up to your highest expectations.

Bottom line: Your decisions and actions take on the energetic pattern of the days when they are “born”. By taking the time to select auspicious days, you can literally make a date with prosperity.

What is Authentic Feng Shui?

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

Contrary to popular belief, Classical Feng Shui is not about putting a frog with a coin on your desk or putting a water feature in your so-called “wealth” sector and thinking these things will bring you money. (In fact, doing this could actually be destroying your wealth: See my free report, The 5 Biggest Feng Shui & Vaastu Mistakes Most People Make and How to Avoid Them.) Unlike the overly simplified practices that claim to be Feng Shui, true Classical Feng Shui incorporates the influence of planetary cycles and time-tested mathematical calculations and formulas. This results in Feng Shui recommendations that are truly customized for the energies that apply to each client and each home or workplace and a particular period of time. This is why Classical Feng Shui practitioners keep clients from making “one size fits all” mistakes that commonly arise with other non-authentic schools of Feng Shui.

By contrast, Classical Feng Shui applies well-defined scientific principles and energy theories to individual situations. Instead of dangerous “one size fits all” recommendations, clients receive personal analysis of their unique interaction with their specific environment. That’s vital, because every structure has its own energy map that determines how it will interact with an individual over time. To assess this, Classical Feng Shui uses a sophisticated compass and complex mathematical formulas and calculations to examine both the physical environment (location and orientation of the building and its relationship to surrounding environmental features) and the quality of energy affecting a building in a specific time period. And by doing both, Classical Feng Shui helps you avoid making mistakes and missing valuable opportunities.

What are some of the benefits of a Feng Shui or Vaastu business consultation?

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Classical Feng Shui and Vaastu are so highly regarded in many parts of Asia that businesses consider Feng Shui and Vaastu consultants as important as attorneys, accountants or other advisors. Feng Shui consultants help businesses create positive, productive environments that support both the staff and the growth of the business. By identifying – and neutralizing – negative energies, consultants help businesses avoid costly problems such as high turnover, low morale, lawsuits and workplace accidents. By optimizing positive energies, the Classical Feng Shui consultant helps business enjoy long-term success with continuing success in attracting new clients, winning negotiations, and keeping cashflow robust and dependable.

Is this a passing fad or just some new age superstition?

Friday, October 7th, 2011

Unfortunately, inexperienced practitioners and popularized versions of Feng Shui have led many to view this ancient science as a frivolous fad. Classical Feng Shui and Vaastu, however, have been around more than 6,000 years — secretly used by emperors and kings to safeguard their wealth, power, and well-being. Neither is this superstition. These are environmental sciences grounded in numerical patterns and mathematical calculations that assess the physical, directional, and spatial energies at play in us and in our environment.

Practiced by more than 1 billion people worldwide, the ancient science of Classical Feng Shui identifies and manages the unseen energies that exist in our environment. Classical Feng Shui uses principles of environmental science and complex mathematical formulas to analyze exactly how the powers of the land, time and space affect individuals’ finances, health, relationships, and career in any particular period. Classical Feng Shui experts use these analyses to give clients the power to harness beneficial energies while reducing negative energies.

How do I find a good Feng Shui or Vaastu Consultant?

Friday, September 30th, 2011

The key is to look for a practitioner certified in Classical Feng Shui. This immediately clears away the New Age school consultants and hobbyists whose over-simplified recommendations can prove so dangerous. This is vital: non-authentic Feng Shui deals only with surface energies, not the internal energies which are the root cause of problems. Even more alarming is that in the hands of amateurs, “cures” such as mirrors, crystals or water fountains can actually cause disastrous imbalances that manifest as illness, discord, financial loss and other negative situations.

Like every individual, every home or office has its own “natal chart”. If a consultant doesn’t ask for birthdates, the date you moved into a property, the date it was built, etc. – the consultant is not practicing Classical Feng Shui. Another tip off is the type of compass the consultant uses. A Classical Feng Shui Consultant will use a sophisticated compass called a luo pan that has Chinese characters. Again, if your consultant uses any other type of compass (or doesn’t use a compass at all), beware.

Finally, you want more than a consultant who has simply studied Classical Feng Shui – you want a consultant who is actually certified. Worldwide, only a very few of the students who have studied Classical Feng Shui actually become certified. This is a crucial distinction because the authentic skills and closely guarded secrets of Classical Feng Shui can’t be learned from books: they can only be conferred on students by a few internationally recognized Feng Shui Masters.
