What I didn’t mention before is that I am also redecorating my WEST area and my new home office. I feel really good about this new office of mine, as the West is so auspicious this year. I have written all about this in the upcoming May 2016 issue of FSW magazine so be sure to grab your copy.
This is the thing about Feng shui. It really is important to stay fully up to date -both astrologically and following the time changes in energy. Now I actually have two computer offices – one in the West, which is lucky for me, and one in the Southeast (which although it is not so good for me since it is an East group direction) has the victory star this year! So you see you need to consider all things when updating your feng shui. Be sure to pick up a copy of the May issue of Feng Shui World Magazine.
Be your own feng shui detective – it’s never to late to make the changes that are necessary especially if things have not been going well for you. Open your mind to all the possibilities!
Rejuvenate Your Chi! Go to Sleep Before the Rat Hour
Everyone wants to look younger and more beautiful these days! All you have to do is look at the cosmetic counters filled with anti-aging creams and lotions…and the myriad of other products on the market today associated with the secrets of keeping a youthful and vibrant appearance.
But did you know that our cells are naturally rejuvenated between the hours of 11pm and 1am each night…and if you’re not sleeping during these crucial hours then you’re missing out on the rejuvenating process for that night?
Maybe there’s more to the old expression of “getting your beauty sleep” than we realize. According to Ayurvedic doctors, if you’re a “night owl” and regularly go to bed after 1am every night, there is a real danger your cells may not be rejuvenating quickly enough, leading to premature aging. Exactly what everyone is trying to avoid!
to look younger!
If you want to stay youthful and strong…make sure you go to bed before the hour of the RAT! And what’s even better is you will automatically begin to rise earlier each day…allowing you to watch sunrise and experience one of the most beautiful times of the day. The Chinese believe that every time your body absorbs the chi of sunrise it becomes that much stronger.
So get to bed by 11 pm and don’t miss out on your beauty sleep!
4 Special Feng Shui Tips
For Your Meditation Place
Choosing a place to meditate is very personal but here are some special feng shui tips you may want to consider in order to enhance your meditation place and your practice as well.
Tip # 1: Location of Your Meditation Room
Try to meditate in a special room that you designate just for this purpose…or a special area of one room if you don’t have the luxury and space for one special meditation room only. It should be quiet and somewhere you will not be disturbed. The location is up to you but the room or area should not be directly above or below a kitchen or toilet or a heavy piece of furniture. A good location is always in the back half of your home.
Tip # 2: On Color & Décor
The décor should obviously be calm and soothing and the temperature neither too hot nor cold…something that is comfortable for you. Generally the color you choose for this room is up to you but red, a yang and hot fire color is not recommended for a meditation room. The chi should flow easily and smoothly here so minimal approach with regard to furnishings is better. It goes without saying that the room should be sparkling clean and free of clutter.
Tip # 3: The Altar in Your Meditation Room
Mediating in front of an altar is very calming and the preparation of your altar is of course a very personal matter. The presence of holy objects or figures such as Jesus Christ, Buddha, Mary or your own particular saint makes this altar and space unique to you and very special indeed. Do make sure that your altar does not share a wall with a toilet or the kitchen and there is no toilet directly above your altar. Also please check and ensure that the altar in your meditation area is not directly facing the door, because if you sit in front of it to face your altar to meditate your back will be to the door and this is very unfavorable from a feng shui perspective.
Tip # 4: Capturing Auspicious Chi For Meditation
Be sure when you meditate you orient your sitting position using proper feng shui which means according to your Kua number and the Eight Mansions Formula. This means that your head should face the direction deemed to be most auspicious for you and the chi that is coming towards you. In other words you are looking towards your most favorable direction.
Here is a reference table for you indicating your best direction according to your kua number. You should face this direction as you sit in meditation. If you do not know your kua number then go to www.wofs.com homepage and you will find a kua calculator in the top right corner and you can receive your kua number instantly.
I wish you continued success as you continue your mediation practices.
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.

Check Surrounding Buildings
The buildings or other homes around your house radiate energy very much like a force field, which will interact, with the energy of your home. Develop an understanding of these force fields so that you know if they are bringing good or harmful chi. Usually when the buildings are bigger and taller it is better if they are behind you to lend support and protection rather than in front of your house, which will block your luck and opportunity.
Your Karmic Luck
Feng shui must always be practiced for the right reason…even in the area of romance! There are many things feng shui can do to improve your chances of finding a mate…a lifelong partner and a family.
But here’s what feng shui cannot promise or guarantee…that your marriage or relationship will be successful and long lasting because in the end the relationship all depends on your own karma…the character traits and quality of the person you attract… and your ultimate happiness is really your own karmic luck.
