Greetings from KL and I am getting ready to leave for Singapore for our Spiritual Feng Shui Event this Sunday. We’ve been so busy preparing for this…and I know you will be amazed by the 100,000 Feast Offering (Bum Tsog) to Guru Rinpoche led by Khenpo Delek Rinpoche.
This auspicious event brings enormous benefits of wealth, long-life and happiness, with the power to remove obstacles of all kinds. Here are a few of the benefits:
- Boost your wealth and income luck
- Improve your health and overcome illness
- Remove obstacles in your life
- Gain insight for decision making
- Greater harmony in all your relationships
- Stay safe if you find yourself in a dangerous situation
And for everyone who attends, we’ve prepared a powerful Guru Rinpoche amulet text that provides protection against the malevolent forces of a “dark” year.
In today’s ezine I’ve given you the way to determine your “Personal Trigram” for this year. This is kind of cool and I would venture to guess that many of you are not fiamiliar with this. You see, your mood and attitude and action toward success (or failure) are determined by your personal trigram, which is calculated using your gender and age (so it changes every year). To find out your personal trigram for 2016 please read the article this week…I think you’ll find it fun and informative!
See you in Singapore!
The Secrets of the Tai Chi Symbol
Chi energies do not just affect the practice of feng shui. All Chinese esoteric sciences explain phenomenon in terms of it. Chi energy flows in the living environment and inside the human body, thereby having a direct bearing on the wellbeing of mankind.
Chi energy manifests in the way we express ourselves and through the way we dress, the way we eat, the way we write and the way we communicate our creativity. Chi thus exerts tremendous significance on the way we live, the way we breathe, exercise and maintain our good health.
Exponents of Chinese martial arts and Chi Kung will also tell you that the secret of excellence in these practices is the ability to harness and control the Chi within the human body to effectively encompass them in postures and movements. Chi is thus likened to the living essence of mankind and his environment.
In feng shui, the harmony of Chi energy is paramount to establishing balance in any given space. It is the quality of this balance that brings good fortune. When the Chi of the living space becomes unbalanced, troubles occur and problems start to appear.
Likewise, when Chi within the body is unbalanced, illness develops. Since the balance of Chi in living and work spaces is affected by the way buildings are designed and constructed – the placement of walls, the layout of rooms and the dimensions of spaces created – knowing how to ensure a good balance of Chi is a very big part of creating good feng shui.
Chi Is Affected By The Passage Of Time
The balance of Chi is also affected by the passage of time. The underlying essence of feng shui is that it is never static. Instead, it is dynamic and Chi energy, as well as flow of Chi, is always undergoing change and transformation. So there is a time dimension to the balance of Chi energy and by extension to the quality of feng shui in any space.
When applying the different formulas of feng shui – whether these refer to the space or the time dimension – we should always think of space in terms of the tai chi symbol i.e. the yin and yang forces that make up the space.
The Tai Chi Symbol Expresses Yin & Yang
Chi energy is expressed in the tai chi symbol, shown as a circle with a black and a white embryonic symbol. The white part of the symbol signifies yang Chi while the black part signifies the yin Chi. Note there is a little of yin in yang and vice versa.
Yin is stillness while yang is movement. As soon as there is movement, the two forces of Chi interact and according to the ancients, as soon as yin and yang interact, the limits of the Universe manifest. These are expressed as six energies, which in turn find expression as the five elements. The six energies and the five elements in turn also interact with each other to create what the texts refer to as the ten thousand things. It is from the study of the way the different energies of Chi interacts that feng shui formulas are interpreted and applied to living space.
Based on these principles, the ancient masters developed ways to harness the energy flow of any space, at the same time also adjusting to changes occurring over time. So these principles underlie the practice of feng shui.
What Trigram Rules Your Mood This Year?
Did you know that your moods, attitudes and tendencies towards success or self-destructive behavior are determined by the trigram that rules your mood during any given year? This is your personal trigram and it changes from year to year. Once you know which trigram dominates your mood you’ll understand yourself much better and you can manipulate your activities and responses according to your annual trigram.
So, which trigram rules YOUR mood and actions this year? You can determine this with the following formula.
FOR WOMEN: Begin your counting at trigram KAN (in the north) and then move counter clockwise counting 1 year for each trigram until you reach your age this year. So you will move KAN to CHIEN to TUI to KUN etc and keep going until you reach your current age. So if you are 40 years of age now then your ruling trigram this year is KEN.
FOR MEN: Begin your counting at trigram LI (in the south) and then move clockwise counting 1 year for each trigram until you reach your age this year. So you will move LI to KUN to TUI to CHIEN until you reach your current age. If you are now 40 years of age then your ruling trigram this year is SUN.
Remember that your ruling trigram changes EVERY YEAR!
Refer to the following Trigram descriptions to learn more about your PERSONAL trigram this year!
TRIGRAM LI is the Trigram of Fire. It attaches itself to dry wood and consumes it. It signifies attachment and passion, a clinging that can be destructive. This is the light that gives you brilliance, fame and glory, but the Trigram Li can be dangerous as it can make you addicted to the fire of intense brightness. The creature of the Li is the crimson pheonix; the organ it affects is the eye and it also stands for the middle daughter.
TRIGRAM Kun is the Trigram of Mother Earth; nurturing, caring and mothering. It is receptive to ideas, and symbolizes the cauldron, the vase, the container. Earth will always feel better when it unites with heaven, so those who are unmarried and are ruled by this trigram will themselves be thinking of marriage and feeling very family-oriented. It is like entering a nesting year. This trigram has affinity to the ox; and its organ is the stomach. Its energy is always strongly matriarchal.
TRIGRAM Tui is the trigram associated with young women and with the pursuit of pleasure. Sometimes it means a concubine or a young lover. This trigram can manifest addiction to the joyous lifestyle, and addiction that throws good sense and caution to the winds. Astrologers usually interpret this trigram as indicating a year of debauchery and danger. When wives see their husbands dominated by this trigram in any year – that is when they would be wise to take all necessary precautions to keep their husbands from straying into the arms of a seductress.
TRIGRAM Chien is the Trigram of Heaven, the skies from where all good things come. This is a most fortunate trigram for a man, as it manifests strong masculine energy. The trigram brings superior leadership qualities including courage and a toughness to overcome whatever obstacles one may encounter. The creature that symbolizes this trigram is the horse and its most vital organ is the head where the brain resides. When men are dominated by this trigram, that will be the year when strength blossoms from within. When women are ruled by this trigram, that is the year when they will come across bossier than usual and also more agressive.
TRIGRAM Kan is the Trigram of Danger, where water has reached its zenith, about to overflow. This is a trigram that suggest stagnation might be just around the corner, the kind that is caused by a severe loss of everything. This is a trigram which also suggests making stupid, foolish decisions, with an inability to control oneself. The creature that manifests the attributes of this trigram is the boar on the farm, and the organ signified is the ear. When a man is ruled by this trigram, he will find that the year is a seriees of missed opportunities due to no one by himself. For a woman, this trigram can indicate an affair with a younger man.
TRIGRAM Ken is the Trigram of the Mountain. This symbolizes inflexiibility, coming to a stubborn standstill, an impasse. Watch that you do not allow dogmatism to create invisible barriers to your own success. For a man to be dominated by the muntain suggests obstacles that block success. Look for hidden ways to get round the mountain, or better yet, dig up the gold from the mountain. For a woman, this trigram suggests a weakness for a young man. But it is an interlude in your life that might well bring happiness.
TRIGRAM Chen is the Trigram of Growth and Development. It indicates an awesome year for those who are ruled by this trigram. There are exciting, new beginnings that set the tone for the near future. It will be like the sound of thunder awakening a vital force that helps you break new ground. This is a trigram that is very promising for both the man and the woman.
TRIGRAM Sun is the Trigram of Wind, but it is a gentle wind that finds its way into every small corner of the world. Astrologers interpret this as recognition; gaining respect. The wind makes your attainments known to the world, so here it suggests fame. But the wind is also an agent of dispersion, dissolving everything in its path. The creature manifested here is the sheep or the mountain goat who is careful and wary. For a man, this trigram can bring you a year when powerful forces open new doors; for a woman, this trigram could suggests a year when your networking skills could wlell bring exciting results.

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!

Try This For Cash Luck!
We can all use some cash luck! Place a small amount of sea salt or rock salt inside your wallet to attract cash luck. Sea salt is a great cleanser but it also has the capacity to attract WEALTH! Sew several grains of sea salt into a small pouch in your wallet. You will not only attract cash into your wallet, but this also ensures that too much money doesn’t leave your wallet as well.
Remember the old saying…the longest journey starts with the first step? Your ideas will never materialize if they remain only as thoughts. If there is something you really want, don’t wait any longer to get started, just go for it!
