I am currently renovating the EAST wing of my home to re energize the Dragon side. This is a good year to do so as it is the year of the Monkey, the dragon’s ally. The Dragon is also eydxcellent for the year and it is a great way to prepare for the coming year of the Rooster (2017).
It certainly is noisy and very inconvenient … nevertheless I am looking forward to having a new modern living area! It is going to be remodeled quite substantially with new French Doors and a large picture window. I also plan to bring in new bushes and plants to create a younger, stronger Dragon!
Not many people realize that re-energizing of the Dragon (EAST) side of your home and garden is what can jump-start your good fortune luck. It also activates all the good stars in one’s birth chart as well as one’s house charts!
This is what the practice of feng shui is about – never forgetting that the passage of time can cause energies in the home to get stale; they need to be re energized otherwise yin spirit formation takes place. I suggest you do a quick review of your own home and surroundings today.
Its very noisy here these few days…but it will be worth it!
You must always ensure that your home stays alive with yang energy and you can start by keeping it really clean, well maintained and free of clutter. Clean homes that are kept in top condition enjoy good feng shui – it’s that simple. Now this means everything in your house has to work – the plumbing, electricity, doors and windows etc. Light bulbs must never be left unchanged when they go out and it’s important to remove and dead and wilting plants.
If you revitalize your home (as I am now doing on the east side) you are actually replenishing yang energy. If you feel your house is getting “sleepy” then yin spirit formation is probably seeping in and it’s time to do something about it. You don’t have to deal with actual construction work like new windows and french doors as I am now doing – you can accomplish your energy replenishment by repainting, moving furniture, adding new, vibrant plants…things like this.
And by the way if you are selling your house or you’re a new homebuyer this is very important. You should also add some “cosmic revitalization” with the spiritual feng shui rituals that I describe in my new Feng Shui For Real Estate Success course. Actually everyone should use these rituals no matter what!
When you reenergize your home like this, it is very good for you health and for bringing new opportunities to all areas of your life. Even if you update your Flying Star annually and monthly as I do, you can’t ignore this revitalization aspect of good feng shui.
And here’s one more tip today – stay relaxed at all times – don’t be too obsessive or dogmatic about your approach to feng shui! Do the best you can and always be aware of the “sleepy” energy seeping in – you know what to do!
To your continued success!
Create Magic In Your Life with Wish-Granting Symbols
There is increasing awareness of, and interest in cosmic magic, which basically is the material realm connecting with the spiritual realm. Awareness of this, coupled with the developed ability of the human mind creating images internally, has the power to actualize wishes that you generate inside your head, making your desires materialize like magic! Practicing this branch of inner feng shui is magic and uses secret and oftentimes sacred symbols that bridge the cosmic world with ours.
The great wealth symbols of the four primary compass directions (cardinal directions) on both sides of the cosmic divide are wish granting in their promise. They have survived the various centuries and evolved in different cultural and religious traditions. In some countries a few are treated with religious fervor while in others only one or two of the four have survived.
In the Tibetan traditions of cosmic magic practiced by the yogics and shamans the legend describes the four great cosmic wealths of the four cosmic continents of the four directions as follows:
WISH GRANTING JEWEL (EAST)
In the continent of the East is Purva-videha, it has a mountain of precious jewels and here the cosmic magic symbol is the wish granting jewel. Its power gets activated when an actual physical jewel is placed before you. Then you mediate and recite the Sanskrit mantras that invoke it’s energy to manifest your wishes into reality. Meditating on the jewel is incredibly effective as this focuses your internal mind energy on the powers of the jewel. You can also place the wish-granting jewel along the EAST wall of your living area.
Some people believe that the real cosmic continent, a pure land inhabited by Devas and powerful Deities in Wu Tai Shan…the holy mountain of Manjushri near Beijing.
WISH GRANTING COW (WEST)
In the continent of the WEST is Apara-godaniya, which is represented by a wish granting cow whose urine and dung are liquid and solid gold! According to legend, this cosmic pure land of the west lies in northern India, hidden somewhere in the Himalayan Mountain range and can be accessed only through virtuous thought and pure hearts and minds.
The image itself is powerful, symbolizing great wealth that manifests as pure gold. This is perhaps why the cow is so highly revered and why its dung is used to build houses. The cow is usually featured in religious art often accompanying powerful deities of the Hindu tradition.
WISH GRANTING HARVEST (NORTH)
In the continent of the North, Uttara-Kuru represents the continuous availability of crops always growing in abundance and always available. This is the wish granting harvest bringing the wealth of never-ending success.
WISH GRANTING TREES (SOUTH)
In the continent of the South, Jampud-vipa, are groves of wish granting trees bringing wealth that multiplies and grows. These same trees are also said to grow in the center of the heavenly paradise realm of the Hindu God Indra. This powerful tree is believed to grant all the wishes of those who invoke its energy. It manifests an abundance of divine wealth that takes shape as flowers and fruits appearing throughout the twelve months of the year with different kinds of fruit for each of the four seasons.
Usually the wish granting tree is visualized being laded with fruits, flowers, leaves and plenty of bejeweled ornaments, there are silk ribbons and birds, and at the top of the tree there are lotus flowers where rainbow light radiates outward. The wealth that is the wish fulfilling tree can be activated by your mind, making the wishes it wants to manifest into reality, into picture images of the tree bringing all that is wished for.
Create Magic In Your Life!
First we must develop familiarity with these four symbols so we know how and what to think of them. The best way to do this is by placing their images within close and constant range so that over time they become empowered by our minds energy simply by their presence. Knowing what they signify, believing in their significance and then systematically empowering them with focused thought is how to use auspicious symbols such as these to bring many good things and magic into our lives!
The four types of wealth are part of the Mandala offering that forms an important component of the Tibetan offering ritual that is practiced to this day and is believed to be very auspicious irrespective of whether the offering is real, symbolic or completely visualized in the mind. Indeed, a great deal of Tibetan cosmic magic involves the use of secret visualization techniques accompanied by secret incantations and mantras that require the correct symbolic tools and implements to be present.
This is an exciting dimension of luck creation and actualizing a good life!

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.

Dragons Love Water!
When you place a dragon near the edge of a pond or fountain, it creates the symbolism of a thirsty dragon coming to drink – making it most auspicious and your pond or fountain a lot luckier as a source of wealth luck. Adding a dragon is something easy that you can do right away to boost your prosperity luck.
If you’ve been following the U.S. Presidential pre-election debates, you know that Donald Trump is regularly challenged these days for changing his mind or position on certain matters. But sometimes it is necessary to withdraw your support and change your stance on something… even if the consequences are far-reaching. Always be flexible, willing to listen and to reconsider when necessary.
