I find that many students when they first begin their feng shui practice have difficulty knowing just where to start. This is not surprising considering the number of formulas and plethora of information available today from books and on the Internet.
When practicing formula feng shui a proper compass should always be used…and any good western style compass will be fine. Here are 3 tips suggestions that will help you…
Tip # 1 – A Camera or the Naked Eye?
A good way to start is always to look carefully at the external surroundings of your home or apartment before going into detail about what must be done inside. The best way to do this is to use your camera because the pictures you take will reveal many interesting things and show your home from all angles…you’ll be surprised at how much the camera picks up that you might have missed.
Begin by taking a picture standing inside your main door looking out – so you photograph what is facing you and your front door directly. Examine the photos and look for poison arrows – objects that could be sending harmful and hostile energy (shar chi) towards you. Once you have identified them, you can take the proper steps to deflect or dissolve them using the 5-element theory.
I cover this theory very thoroughly in my online course “Practical Feng Shui For Modern Living” as well as in many of the books I have written on feng shui. The Chinese believe everything in the universe is made up of five types of chi or energy – earth, water, wood metal and fire that interact with each other in a destructive, exhaustive or productive cycle. Once you understand these interactions you are able to manipulate the energy and the manifestation of good luck and bad luck in and around your home or apartment.
Tip # 2 – Beware of the Dangers Of Intangible Energy Too
Here is special feng shui tip for you – it’s something that many students aren’t aware of and fail to recognize, even those who have practiced feng shui for a long time. Obstacles and problems can be caused by hostile structures… but they can also come from invisible, intangible energy… like negative chi from unfriendly or hostile neighbours.
Learn to “tune into” the flow of chi… and as you stand at your main door looking out try to feel if the energy coming at you is benevolent good sheng chi or harmful killing chi. If someone is sending hostile energy your way on a regular basis it can be devastating unless you take the proper steps to dissolve it (again using the 5 element theory). So, while feng shui requires technical calculations, it also requires good judgment, common sense and intuitive skills.
Tip # 3 – Remember That Things Always Change
No matter where you are in your feng shui practice it’s always good to recheck your surroundings on a regular basis as things can change quickly outside your home or apartment, which may go unnoticed and begin to cause problems. Develop your “feng shui eyes” and remain constantly alert to any changes in your neighborhood and immediate surroundings… especially if your prosperity luck has diminished or illness has set in. Check rooftops, new buildings and roadways, the street lightning and of course anyone or anything new and unusual in the vicinity.
King Gesar Of Ling
Tibetans believe that King Gesar of Ling who is an emanation of the great GURU RINPOCHE, will return to the world as the 25th King Rudrachakrin of Shambala. Shambala is a mystical paradise that is supposed to be located somewhere in Central Asia, where everything is delightful and pure and where inhabitants live in harmony and abundance!
In 2424, as the King of Shambala, Gesar will lead his Shambala warriors into battle against the demonic forces of darkness…and rid the world of evil, inaugurating a golden age of long lasting peace and joyousness on Earth!
King Gesar of Ling rides the powerful WIND HORSE, which has the power to strengthen mankind’s inner spirit force, our lung ta. He gallops through the skies, dispersing obstacles and opening the way for all of us mere mortals to gain the worldly goods we desire…like fame, wealth and success…but more importantly causing realizations of the true nature of reality to emerge within our minds.
If you read King Gesar’s epic you’ll be enthralled by his exploits…full of high adventure and wondrous magic…derived from the rich oral traditions of the Himalayan Kingdom beginning in the eleventh century! But all these stories have strong underlying Buddhist teachings on compassion and wisdom. King Gesar is widely revered as an embodiment of the great Bodhisattvas Avalokiteshvara and Manjushri, as well as an emanation of the amazing Guru Rinpoche…also known as Padmasambhava…who brought Buddhism to Tibet.
I won’t go into now all the causes and conditions that came together to personally bring me closer to the Kingdom of Shambala, to King Gesar, to Guru Rinpoche…the amazing coincidences and tales of experiences that have convinced me of the power and existence of cosmic magic…it would simply take too long and fill a whole book.
But I do share many of them in my teachings on cosmic magic and channeling the Spirit of Shambala in my newly released video series Channeling the Spirit of Shambala. This is a video series was made for online release only – and it comprises the entire Spiritual Feng Shui event, which took place in KL in July, 2013.
Be sure to order these videos and learn how to invoke the powerful WIND HORSE…and join me as I share the story of King Gesar…and the invocations and mantras, which I have been given permission to share with you…and which will channel the powerful spirit of Shambhala into your life.
Most importantly, please understand that the Spirit of Shambala is activated by altruistic intention to benefit and protect others…not just yourself. Start by thinking of loved ones and family as you listen to the videos…to overcome obstacles, generate inner strength and of course attain success.
