I’m writing to you today from the BIG APPLE! Yes, that’s right I’m in New York for a few days before heading down to Boston and the 40th reunion of my class at Harvard Business School! Don’t worry…we’re taking lots and lots of photos…and I’ll be sharing them with you in the coming weeks.
Here in New York I can just feel the pulsating energy…the bright neon lights of Broadway, crowds of people everywhere all heading in their own particular direction, great delis and delicious food…it has brought back a lot of memories from my Harvard days. So much yang energy…day and night! One thing I have noticed is the competitive nature of everything… from what Broadway show to see, which souvenir store to shop at, where to find the best deals in electronics to what clothing stores have good sales on! Mind blowing!
As an aside…we Chinese know that Kuan Yu (or Kuan Kung) is not only a fierce protector but also one of the most important wealth gods found among business owners at home in KL and throughout Asia. He also helps to overcome competition, yet I haven’t seen one here ha ha…except in Chinatown of course.
You’ll forgive me for not writing more today…I want to spend every minute out on the town!
Love from the Big Apple!
What’s happening inside your bedroom? Probably too much! Your bedroom should be a comfortable and relaxing place – somewhere to sleep and re-energize your body. It’s not a place for using your treadmill or working on your laptop or tablet. It’s a place of comfort…and rest.
And speaking of rest…and getting the most out of a good night sleep, remember that any mirrors facing the bed are a real feng shui taboo. If you have mirrored closet doors or a mirror of any sort facing your bed, you should remove the mirrors and replace with wooden doors or a hanging drape – be sure to cover them up as they could cause interference in your marriage.
Another thing to watch for is ceiling fans or exposed beams that may be overhead. Move your bed if possible to avoid sleeping directly underneath them. If you cannot do this, try to camouflage them in some way.
Of course we’d all love to have the perfect bedroom…located in the sector of the house that corresponds to our family and marriage direction but this isn’t always possible. What you can be sure to do instead is have your head pointed in your best personal direction. If you don’t know what this is be sure to go to http://www.wofs.com and download your kua number in the upper right hand corner of the screen. If it’s still a problem to have your head pointed in your best personal direction, make sure you are not facing any one of your four inauspicious directions (also revealed by your kua number).
Remember above all…this is a peaceful place of solitude, rest and relaxation!
PROUD AND FIERCE…KUAN KUNG!
I always tell my students to adopt a defensive strategy and to protect themselves from bad feng shui before trying to enhance good feng shui. One of the ways to do this is by using guardian images.
When you use celestial guardians in your home or office they must be placed in the correct location. As you know, one of the areas requiring maximum protection is your front door (main entrance) or nearby. This is the “mouth” of the home where the chi enters.
One excellent guardian to consider using is Kuan Kung. It’s said that even the most desperate criminals and wandering spirits are scared off when they enter and find his fierce countenance facing them! You might consider a brass image of Kuan Kung as this will serve the dual purpose of controlling certain earth related afflictions as well as keeping criminals at bay.
You may not be aware that Kuan Kung can also attract mentor luck when displayed in the NW corner of your home and powerful support and protection for the patriarch!
And finally he is of course a wealth God too…especially effective if your business is suffering and/or facing competition. There are fabulous images of Kuan Kung both standing and on horseback but the ones on horseback are considered best for business people. Be sure that his expression is very fierce and powerful!
To Your Success!
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.

Feng Shui For Office Doors
You can improve your success luck if the location, direction and design of the door that leads into your private office comply with good feng shui.
- Make sure the door is not hit by anything harmful such as poison arrows.
- Try to have your door located in a corner of your room and facing a direction that is auspicious for you.
- No glass panels on the door please.
- Try for the following door colours in the respective sectors: brown for east and southeast (wood); white for the west and northwest (metal); maroon for the south (fire); black for the north (water); and beige for the southwest and northeast (earth).
Nothing will bring you greater happiness than the practice of generosity. Surprise someone today with a gift that is totally unexpected and watch what happens! There is a lot of joy in the simple act of giving.
