As you know, in 2014 the luck of the patriarch is severely afflicted by the Five Yellow or Wu Wang, which increases the chances of falling victim to accidents, illness, job loss and depression. It is also right now, in summer time that the Five Yellow is at its strongest power – so it is important for all patriarchs to be alert to danger and to carry or wear protection.
For protection against injury and accidents, wear the syllable HUM – particularly if you are a dad born in the year of the Dog or the Boar. For protection from robbery and violence carry the Night Spot Safety Amulet which features the famous ghost catcher Chung Kwei – you can hang in in your car if you like – I especially recommend this if you born in the year of the Boar, Tiger or Ox. If you were lucky enough to purchase one of my seed syllable silk tie then please wear it a lot! This tie is imprinted with all the protective syllables that repel office politics and harmful gossip. It will keep you safe from danger during your commute and was especially designed to touch the throat, heart and navel chakras.
If you’re like some men I know, you may not like wearing showy jewelry and perhaps you prefer to keep your feng shui and spiritual cures a bit more personal. In this case, please carry protective amulets in your pocket, briefcase or car – they will continue to work their magic to protect and support you!
Wishing all Dad’s a happy and safe Fathers Day and continued blessings in the months ahead!
Many people have asked me if living in a cul-de-sac is bad feng shui and the straight answer to this is “yes” as it suggests there is no way out. This in turn suggests when you have problems it may be hard to work your way out of the problems thereby causing you misfortune.
A “dead-end” road (even the words sound foreboding) connotes a full stop to your progress and growth…and if your location has higher ground behind it (such as a sloping hill) you are definitely “boxed-in” or trapped. If you live in a house located at the end of the cul-de-sac the chi energy coming to you house is usually fast…so this energy is pernicious and non-beneficial bringing misfortune. And at night as the cars drive down the road with their headlights shining directly into your house, it suggests tigers in the night attacking your home!
If you are now living in a cul-de-sac or at the end the road, the cure lies in harnessing the energy that flows down the road towards your house. If you are able to capture the chi and transform it into good sheng chi before it enters your home, you will have effectively transformed it to your advantage. This is because feng shui is all about capturing and creating good chi.
HERE’S WHAT TO DO:
The best way of transforming chi energy is to first force it to slow down and this is done when it meets an obstacle such as a wall, trees, boulders or any kind of structure. It also slows down if it meets a body of water.
Remember we don’t want to make the chi stop altogether; our intention is only to slow it down…and then capture the slowed down chi energy and allow it to accumulate before entering your home. This way excellent feng shui chi is created which brings you good fortune.
Chi is transformed in different ways; for example if you build a wall, you can create a round or square hole to let the chi flow through to a small courtyard or space on the other side. Or you could use a trellis planted with creeping vines to effectively slow down the oncoming chi. Using a trellis made from soft bamboo with an interwoven design will allow the chi pass through slowly.
When you decide on a cure feature to use, it is important to incorporate element considerations into the cure, which makes it much more effective. Use elements to exhaust the bad energy without destroying it. First identify the element of the offending road coming at the house from its direction and use the element that will exhaust (not destroy) it in the cyclical relationship of elements.
For example if the road is coming from the south direction (fire) towards your house, then use a wall made of bricks (earth) which will suppress or exhaust the fire (not destroy it).
There are solutions to most feng shui problems and although living in a cul-de-sac is not ideal, the above suggestions offer you a way to transform potential misfortune into something that will bring you success luck.
All the best!

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.

Beware the Chueh Ming Direction
The Cheuh Ming direction is the worst of the four bad directions. It means total loss of everything and in certain circumstances can spell the death of an entire family. Be sure to check your kua number (go to http://www.wofs.com and click the kua calculator in the upper right corner of the home page to receive your directions and kua number).
You must not face your cheuh ming direction when sleeping, sitting, eating or working – never! The misfortune experienced is exceedingly difficult for anyone to bear. Check your directions!
Think of the universe as a place of plenty. If you decree prosperity for yourself it will happen. Everything in this world begins with an idea…a vision, an image in your mind. When you can see all these prosperous images vividly, you will find yourself going out here and actually creating them!
