In the meantime I wanted to check in to remind you that all your feng shui cures and updates should now be in place for the Year of the Wood Sheep. In the coming year the Rooster, (that’s me), goes through some pretty rough times with the 5 yellow and the 3 killings but thank goodness my lung ta is excellent in 2015 and this means that I can look forward to a really successful year. Lung ta is the Windhorse- it is your success energy. The dog, the boar, the rabbit and the tiger have weak lung ta. Do you know how strong is your windhorse this year? If your lung ta is weak it means you need to strengthen it with very special amulets -especially ones that bring success luck.
Actually I covered all of this for each of the individual horoscope animal signs at my recent feng shui extravaganzas in Singapore and Malaysia. If you missed them you should consider purchasing my 4-part video series, which is on sale right now. It won’t be available for too much longer so please be sure to order if you are interested.
Until next week
Make 2015 A Worry Free Year
The Chinese New Year is rapidly approaching. As we make way for the beginning of the wood sheep year, I wonder if there is anything that is really bothering you right now…really causing you to worry a lot. Sure we all have everyday small worries but I’m talking about a big worry – something you are fixating on.
Worry is never a good thing. It robs you of your vitality and sets you on a downward spiral. Why? Because it typically creates feelings of unexpected failure, and expands negative emotions of doom and gloom setting the stage for unresolved desires and negative instincts to crush your positive inner spirit. Know what I mean? We’ve all experienced this at one time or another.
Here’s the thing. Your power of worry can be as creative, big and influential as you allow it to be…and the more you worry, the more you fear. Sometimes you even imagine things to worry about!
Here’s what to do.
- First try generating, as may powerful emotional “highs” as often as you can. Experiencing successful moments that bring you happiness will liberate you and raise your level of self-confidence.
- When you start to worry about something – catch yourself and work at getting out of the spiral before it gets too deep and potent.
- Always stay alert and be aware of any internal or mental conflicts that cause you to doubt yourself. Negate the fears that try to take control of your spirit and work at overcoming anything that suppresses your natural instinct for happiness.
- Be aware that inner fear and doubt are always there…deep within you (and everyone)…so that when worry and uncertainty arise you take conscious steps that prevent it from disturbing your mind too much.
Over time and with practice you will find that your inner confidence will grow strong. It cannot be compromised or manipulated. You are in control. You will find that you always expect the best scenarios to actualize…and the positive side of your spirit will perform with ease and certainty. Doubt and worry become a thing of the past!
The Year of the Wood Sheep brings much anger and hostility because the 3 star has flown to the center of the chart. However it brings much opportunity for new growth – not only of a financial nature but a personal one as well. Make this year as worry-free as possible!
The Power of Sacred Home Amulets
There are thousands of Tibetan Buddhist lineage texts that chronicle different mantras, sutras and dharanis that can subdue a variety of spirits of the land, seas and the four corners of the earth. These have been compiled and loving put together by the Tibetan masters of past eras.
I have discovered that just placing printed copies of specific sacred texts and other sacred images and objects inside the home, brings unbelievable protection against evil forces unleashed by malevolent spirits. These holy texts and objects protect residents of such homes from bad things happening.
They keep the space of your home or office free from spirit harm and interference. This is very important because spirits and spirit energy living in the cosmic realms parallel to us can cause bad luck, illness and sudden misfortunes. This is why spiritual feng shui and protection is so important.
The spirits of the land can be “spontaneously” malevolent, but it is often our own negative karma that brings them to our doorstep. It is our own cosmic “bad luck” that causes us to do something which in turn results in them bringing harm to us. For instance you might say something unsuitable in a place haunted by such spirits or step over an anthill unintentionally that is occupied by an earth spirit, or chop down a tree occupied by a tree spirit!
Now this might sound a little crazy to those of you who have never encountered such phenomena of offending invisible cosmic spirits…but ask anyone who has hiked in the wilderness or climbed high mountains. They will tell you vehemently how necessary it is to respect the spirits of the environment.
And these spirits don’t just live in the high mountains…there are also cosmic spirits that occupy space in your own backyard, in a river nearby and in the air around you. And do not think that just because you live in an apartment in the city that there are no spirits around! If anything, spirits that live in the streets and gutters in the dark places of the city are often far easier to offend.
When your home has holy lineage texts e.g. a copy of the Sutra of Golden Light or a Book of Mantras or a beautiful Thanka of a Buddha – any kind of holy item becomes a powerful object of protection. It benefits you hugely then to think of these sacred things as “home amulets”. And the great thing is that even when you are not a Buddhist and you have no knowledge of how to read or recite these texts, just inviting them into your home creates an aura of protection!
(Adapted from Lillian Too’s Book -Spiritual Feng Shui -the Vital Third Dimension – The Power of Sacred Lineage Texts).
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.

Birds are very yang…especially happy yang and represent natural vibrant energy. Have you every watched the breast of a robin or bird as they sing? These wonderful winged creatures bring opportunities that can ripen into great success. So feed the birds around your home, be kind to them, make friends with them and invite them into your world. Talk to them and share your thoughts, hopes and dreams!
Worries only get in your way. Throw them away…I’m serious! They keep you from moving ahead…from taking action and from manifesting success and prosperity. Today why not throw out all your worries! Of course this is a symbolic gesture but nonetheless very powerful. Toss them away forever…out of your window or off the balcony. They only get in your way so get rid of them!
