I was thinking a lot about the dragon this week. Sometimes things just come to me and I’m not sure why at the time. Nevertheless I thought I would share a few things about this mighty celestial creature with you in the ezine today. I did recently see a large gold dragon (made of metal) in a shop and I was immediately put off because the metal element kills the wood element of the dragon whose home is in the East. There are so many things to think about to keep your feng shui in sync!
I wanted to be sure to remind you that my MPC course, held here in KL, is coming up in about 6 weeks time. This is really fantastic opportunity to learn feng shui with me. In this 5-day course I go deep into the compass and landscape formulas of feng shui – you’ll learn how to use the Luo Pan (your feng shui compass) properly and we do real site visits for practical experience as well. And that’s only the beginning…you’ll meet and bond with friends from all over the world and have time with me personally! So if you are interested in learning more about this ancient skill and perhaps even becoming a feng shui consultant yourself then why not join me Sept 7-12 here in our offices in Kuala Lumpur? You can call Connie at 603-2080-3488 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a course itinerary and registration form.

“Dotting the Eyes of the Dragon”
Awaken the Energy of the Dragon…Protect Your Home from Danger & Create Good Abundance Energy!
The Dragon is the ultimate auspicious creature, which brings yang energy, protection and abundant good luck. With the presence of the Dragon in your home, you are able to enjoy good fortune luck that comes your way.
Invite the Dragon into your home and dot his eyes so he comes alive. The following are the steps to take when dotting the eyes of your Dragon.
- Choose a porcelain, brass or golden dragon – a dragon that you connect with and like! Don’t get too large an image…be sure to keep things in balance with the rest of your home décor.
- Check our 2015 Feng Shui Almanac and select a Dragon day.
- Note that the Dragon hour is between 7 am and 9 am.
- Use a new brush and some red ink (preferably cinnabar ink) to dot the eyes of your Dragon.
- Make sure your dragon is facing EAST when you do this ceremony.
- Use incense to awaken the energy of the Dragon.
After the ritual is complete, place the Dragon in your living room, if possible facing East. A Dragon can live inside or outside the home and still bring you an abundance of good luck and protection.
If your Dragon cannot face East, you can place your Dragon facing water, since the presence of yang water makes Dragon symbols awaken and exude the precious breath of chi. So when you create water feature in home, it is good idea to place at least one Dragon facing that body of water to bring prosperity.
Never place your Dragon in the following areas:
- Inside the toilet or bathroom or even facing the toilet or bathroom.
- In the SOUTH in the sector of FIRE
- Never above a fireplace since this implies that the fire energy is burning him.
- Never have a Dragon image in your bedroom – it will cause excessive yang energy.
- Never put a Dragon inside a closet
8 Steps to New Success
An important principle of Inner Feng Shui is that inner energy that comes from your mind has the power to actualize everything you wish for into reality. All your wishes can come true and all the outcomes you want can take place. You have the power within you to manifest anything into your life. What you need to do is to focus your mind single-pointedly on what you want. Try using this powerful visualizing Feng shui technique. It is not difficult. All you need is a belief in your own capability, with your own powerful mind helping you…
This is the most important part of the technique. You must believe that you have the power to mentally manifest what you want into reality. You must believe that you deserve what you are asking for, that you have a right to it and that you do not need to feel guilty about having it or need to suffer for wanting to get it. To believe intensely in yourself and simultaneously stay calm and relaxed requires practice. It cannot happen instantly. But this is the first part of the training and you need to gain control over your “monkey mind”. It is important to subdue your random thoughts, stabilize your mind and focus. This will lead to steady and positive concentration.
Here’s a feng shui tool to assist you. Place a solid quartz crystal ball near you to help you stabilize as you practice stilling your mind. Then use this spiritual tool to assist you: Recite this syllable silently inside your head “Dhi dhi dhi dhi”…this is a very powerful seed syllable to steady your mind and receive spiritual chi that is sure to help you.
You must have a goal whenever you wish to engage your mind to manifest a reality you want. This is a very important part of the technique. Many people are not sure what they really want; their goals tend to be vague and uncertain. So think through your life at this moment and ask yourself what will make you really happy. If you are doing this for the first time, keep your wishes simple, easy to manifest and definitely not absurd or outrageous. The idea is to slowly convince your mind you can do it, so keep your wishes small. The best wishes are specific, focused and something you can visualize in your mind. Write them down if necessary to reinforce and clarify.
3. Stay In The Present
Always define your wants and your goals in the present tense, not in future tense. You should say, “I am successful at my job” instead of “I will be successful at my job”. Say “I am rich, I have abundance; I am enjoying my new house, my new car, my new television set.
Remember that objects of desire are easier to manifest than abstract wishes involving other people. For instance, wishing to win the love of someone, to win a court case, to pass a certain exam, to be successful in a job application are aspirations that require more practice. But once you get the hang of it and your wishes start to come true, this will increasingly encourage you and eventually take you on the road to great success until it becomes a habitual part of your living.
Use the words “I desire” or “I want” or “I wish to become” as often as possible. This makes the manifesting process easier; desiring, wanting, wishing are important empowering words and this is because your subconscious mind, the inner higher self of YOU, will go to great lengths to actualize what you want simply to make you happy.
Words that you understand are extremely helpful, and to make the process even more effective, you need to also believe that what you desire is already yours. You must visualize a picture of you already having what you want so you feel very pleased with yourself. Think of yourself this way. Picture it! Feel a strong sense of joyousness; feel it at as deep a level of your being as possible. This is why you define your goals in the present tense.
4. Be Creative
What you want, desire and yearn for must appear as pictures inside your head. Here you need to be very creative. For instance, picture yourself living in a very beautiful home with all the furniture you love and everything exactly the way you want it. If you are visualizing a new house for yourself, see and feel yourself enjoying your home. You can be as lavish as you wish, as imaginative as you want. In fact, it is only those who dare to dream and want and desire that get what they want. So if you want abundance, picture yourself in a state of abundance, wearing beautiful clothes, jewelry, driving a lovely car… the whole works! Go watch a movie with wealthy backdrops. Avoid watching “poverty” type movies, or sad movies. They do horrible things to the mind, building up unnecessary fears inside your head. Better to go for prosperity programming than poverty programming.
5. Keep your wishes secret
It is wise and beneficial to keep all your wishes to yourself. Never spell out your goals to others. Any negative thoughts or doubts they may have regarding what you wish for can well block your own effort at actualizing. Remember, they too have the power to manifest reality, and while your wishes may be stronger and more powerful, you do not need any obstacles to your success. Any negative thought sent your way, which directly targets your own efforts to manifest is sure to hamper your efforts. You must make an effort to keep your wishes secret. You may, if you wish, share your success as soon as what you wish for materializes for you.
6. Never wish anything that harm others
Keep all your wishes positive and make it a point never to wish harm to befall anyone. Even if you find you have the power to manifest negative outcomes for others, you must never do it. If you inadvertently harm someone intentionally, the same negative thing will eventually boomerang back on you. If you are wishing for someone to love you, you must do it by offering love to that person, not by seeking to control that person. If after several tries you find you cannot succeed, then just send the thoughts of love into the Universe and let it work its magic. Use cosmic energy to offer love to another person. It is a lot more powerful.
7. Trust your Higher Self
It is possible that sometimes your higher self resists your efforts to actualize some particular outcome. This can come as a strong inner message that you should stop all attempts to actualize some outcome or something. Trust this message. It is probable that what you are trying to manifest is not in your own best interest or could in the long term harm you or harm someone you love. It benefits to trust your inner guide.
8. Access your Higher Purpose
When you have successfully learnt Mental Manifestation and your life becomes happy, successful, healthy, wealthy and stable, it is then that you will benefit even more by going to the next stage, which is to access into a more meaningful life. Seek out the Higher Purpose of your life. Here, get help from your higher self who always knows what is best for you.
Over time, you will begin to notice that your pattern of wants and needs and desires take on a new rhythm and that you will be working towards attaining and achieving things that will bring you to even higher happiness levels… and these may not necessarily be associated with material-type goals or objects. Go then with the flow…and remember that your inner self,who is always watching over you, is guiding you throughout the journey!
Here are the eight steps again:
- Establish Your Goals
- Stay in the Present
- Be Creative
- Keep Your Wishes Secret
- Wish No Harm To Others
- Trust Your Higher Self
- Access Your Higher Purpose

The All Powerful Dragon
The Dragon is central to feng shui and when feng shui is good people are said to enjoy the dragons precious cosmic breath. Since the EAST is the location normally associated with the dragon, placing a dragon image in this sector represents excellent feng shui and there are many ways you can do this.
Buy a dragon image and display it on a table on the East side of your office or study – it doesn’t matter what it is made of – ceramic, crystal or wood. The only thing I don’t recommend are dragons that are made of gold, cloisonné or other metals since the metal element destroys the wood element. You could also place an image or picture of a dragon on your east wall.
Display ceramic bowls or art objects with the dragon image…these are deemed to be extremely auspicious and I guarantee you’ll find such an object in every successful tycoon’s office in Asia.
Are You Shy?
Many people are shy…but don’t be! Shyness is a manifestation of the fear of being rejected. Here’s the secret…there is nothing fearful at all about being rejected. It happens to the best of us. What you must realize is that even if you are rejected…ultimately it is of no consequence at all! Speak up and be heard!
