In just a few weeks I’ll welcome students from all over the world to Malaysia – to study with me in my MPC (Master Practitioner’s Course). I continue to be amazed (although perhaps by now I shouldn’t be) by the caliber and level of personal excellence of my students. I seem to attract the nicest, smartest group of people who have very high levels of integrity and are willing to share their expertise with others in the group. Many go on to become friends and business partners. They are, for the most part, really nice and genuine people. I consider it a real blessing and I love to learn from them and about them. I am certainly lucky!
Intention with integrity has always been very important to me and I make it a practice to reinforce these values with my staff here at WOFS and to all my business partners throughout the world. You see, when you do things with good intention and in the right way, nothing and no one can harm you. There is never a backlash when you are genuine and honest in your approach to life and to business. You must always be honest.
Sure, there are plenty of times when outsiders try to copy what we do here at World of Feng Shui…from my teachings to the copycatting of our feng shui products. But they are not genuine and neither are their products. Ultimately they fail. I have seen it time and time again. Sooner or later people see through them and their lack of integrity is exposed…especially when the cures and enhancers they sell are ineffective.
So, when people ask me how I started my business or how to grow their business and I always tell them…with integrity and good intention. That is good feng shui.
To your success!
Your Dreams…Messages From The Cosmic Universe?
Wolves, Snakes and Vultures
I wrote last week about how the Tibetans are very sensitive to receiving messages from the Cosmic Universe and believe that strong signals from our inner consciousness in the form of predictive dreams can communicate impending misfortune and good fortune. We looked at positive and auspicious dreams last week and now we’ll look at dreams that are more foreboding and may indicate misfortune.
Not Such Pleasant Dreams
Some dreams suggest obstacles created by harmful spirits…like meeting ferocious cats such as tigers, leopards, jaguars and so forth. If you dream of ferocious dogs, wolves, snakes, vultures or rogue elephants these are signs of impending danger. Other similar signs are dreams of dwarfs, naked thin people, pale and skinny children and tall naked men. If you dream of wells that have dried up or encounter a heap of bones and skulls or come to an empty house…these are also bad signs.
Tiger Dreams suggest obstacles
Here are some more examples of dreams that suggest something negative: being chased by soldiers, applying vegetable oil to one’s body, talking with crippled or limping individuals, seeing the sun or moon going down or seeing an eclipse of the sun or moon…climbing mountains of sand or twigs, seeing red flowers or a camel’s back, passing through narrow passageways, wandering lost in a swamp or running downhill being chased by someone, breaking or injuring some part of your body and being defeated or cheated by someone.
The Tibetans also believe that sometimes, good results can be indicated even though the dream itself may seem unpleasant…and they explain it as being subconsciously purified of the negative karma causing the problem. Dreaming of death is also placed in this category as death here symbolizes a new beginning.
To overcome the negative portents of such dreams, it is usually beneficial to donate some money to charity or to a temple…to feed a tortoise or some fish. In the case of there being a specific problem in your life, you can use an even stronger suggested cure, which is to feed a black bird, a black dog or a black cow. If you do any of these three things it is believed to help purify some of your negative karma.
On the Positive Side…
Finding Treasure is an auspicious dream
If your life is being afflicted by a serious problem…such as going through a difficult court case or you are being sued…dreams of gold…any kind of gold like being given gold by an older person, buying gold or gilding a statue means you can overcome your obstacles and will emerge triumphant. In fact, dreaming of gold is one of the most auspicious dreams along with dreams of finding treasure, wearing precious stones harvesting fruit or meeting a wise old person!
Here’s To Your Dreams of Gold in 2014!
To Your Success!
The YOGA of Sleeping
It is important for the physical body to get enough quality rest, as this is what nurtures your spiritual essence. To this end, ancient masters practice the “yoga of sleeping” which involves going to sleep and waking up at the most favorable times…as well as sleeping in the most beneficial way, i.e. on your right sides.
The Yoga of Sleeping – Hour of the Rat
The best time to go to bed each evening is between 11 pm and 1 am, the hour of the RAT. Around 11 pm is best, because this is when the physical body winds down and the cells of your body rejuvenate and revitalize. Unless the body is in the sleeping state, the body cells cannot replenish their cosmic energies and without this they cannot be revitalized.
It is during this time that the spirit of the self is strengthened and nurtured daily; thus if you constantly go to sleep past 1 am and do not get quality rest as a result, you spirit essence gets weakened. You become vulnerable to disease due to a compromised immune system. There may not appear to be anything physically wrong with you, but when your spirit energy is insufficiently nourished with cosmic essence, your body becomes weak.
Now, if anyone or anything should attack you when you are in this weakened state, you are likely to get physically injured. For example, if someone sends negative thoughts your way you will definitely be affected. Your moods and your emotions will start to feel downbeat and unhappy which will affect your work and all the people around you. And even worse…if curses are sent your way you could become very ill and not even know why!
In fact, the Chinese believe that “curses” sent by older people you have wronged are extremely powerful and for this reason it is advisable to refrain from making someone who is old unhappy with you.
Never upset your parents or grandparents – directly or indirectly – or display an ungrateful attitude. Their unhappiness and disapproval will weaken you and reduce your psychic energy. Keep your essence strong and your cosmic abundance flowing…ask their blessing and approval and show them the love and respect they deserve.
It’s far better to go to sleep early and wake up early than to go to bed late and wake up late. If you go to sleep at the hour of the RAT as I have suggested and wake up at the hour of the Dragon, your body will be very much in tune with the cosmic universe and you will have slept for the needed 8 hours. This is auspicious!
The yoga of sleeping will keep your spirit essence properly nourished!
Grand Master Lillian Too is undoubtedly the world’s most prolific and popular writer and advocate on living with good feng shui! She has written over 100 books that have been translated into 31 different languages, and over 10 million copies of her books have been sold worldwide.
After graduating with an MBA from Harvard Business School, Lillian went on to pursue a highly successful business career in banking and finance in the 1980’s in Hong Kong. Her business acumen, drive and abundant energy soon led her from the finance world to the world of luxury department stores and boutiques where, through a leveraged buy out, she became Chairman and shareholder of The Dragon Seed Group.
All the while she was guided and taught by her feng shui masters in Hong Kong and China – and she attributes much of her monumental and quick rise to success in Hong Kong directly to them.
Lillian soon decided to retire from active corporate life and return to Malaysia to raise her beautiful daughter, Jennifer, and spend more time with her family. It was at this time she began to devote her energy to writing and furthering her study of feng shui.
She published her first book in Malaysia in 1995 that quickly became a best seller and the rest is history. Today she is Chairman of Wofs.Com, a feng shui franchise and merchandising company run by her daughter, Jennifer Too.
She trains feng shui students and future consultants at her Certified Consulting Institute in Malaysia and is much loved by her readers, associates and students for the way she teaches practical feng shui in a user-friendly way, using ordinary situations and circumstances that interest people and affect their everyday lives.
In November 2009, at the International Feng Shui Convention in Singapore, the well-deserved title of GRAND MASTER OF FENG SHUI was conferred upon Lillian Too. Immediately following this accolade, in early January 2010, she received the prestigious Brand Laureate Personality of The Year Award presented by the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia! There seems to be no stopping her popularity and these days!
Lillian believes everyone should know her secrets and learn how to adapt feng shui to modern life… and she warmly welcomes you into her Mandala.
