Well Christmas is almost here! This is a much-celebrated Christian holiday that is observed by many throughout the world! To all my friends and students who celebrate this day, please accept my very best good wishes for a MERRY CHRISTMAS! And it won’t be long before the lunar New Year is here as well.
This is such a festive time with decorations everywhere. Even a month ago, when we were in Singapore for my Feng Shui Extravaganza, Orchard Road was already so beautifully decorated with millions, yes millions of beautiful lights! And in Hong Kong…wow – they do up all the buildings in such a gorgeous manner with so many twinkling lights and designs – it takes your breath away.
I’m sure you’ll agree that such lighting seems to create a feeling of instant happiness and uplifts the spirit! At night it is even more powerful as it creates the cosmic balance of opposing yin and yang forces – opposing yet complementary forces of light against the darkness of the night unlocking lots of good fortune energy.
I’d really urge that at this time of year (which can be really stressful as well as exciting) that you take time to catch your breath and relax. When people are under stress tempers often run high. Take time to put your feet up and pay attention to your breath (even if only for a few minutes) – remove all the thoughts and “to do” lists from your mind and just follow your breath. You’ll feel better and more relaxed in minutes, ready to enjoy the festivities.
Welcome the Lap Chun for Growth and Improvement in 2017
If you attended my talk in Singapore or KL, you are aware that the White Star 1 – a Victory Star, dominates the upcoming Rooster Year, 2017. This is a welcome relief for all of us who have suffered through the darkness of the black monkey year.
Feb 4 on CalendarAnother good sign for everyone is that the Lunar New Year falls on January 28th – before the LAP Chun (or before February 4th), which means we can say that, the “New Year has the Lap Chun” and this is an auspicious indication. This is because the 4th of February (the day of the Lap Chun every year) corresponds to the start of SPRING, which brings the promise of new beginnings and a new season of growth!
Now alternatively, if the Lunar New Year falls after February 4th, then this is inauspicious because it suggests that the year has no beginning and no auspicious start.
It’s always a good idea to decorate your home with symbolic things like pussy willows, spring flowers like yellow chrysanthemums and peonies during the New Year. Yellow chrysanthemums are particularly nice, and being filled with an abundance of petals they bring increasing prosperity luck during the New Year. Place the flowers in auspicious vases throughout your home or better still, make flower offerings on your family altar to your Buddha or God that you worship.
The Magical Energy of Wonderful and Auspicious Offerings!
I always love to make auspicious light offerings to the Buddhas and this is the perfect time of year for you to do the same! Of course you can do it throughout the year as well. Many religions use candles or electric lights on their altars as offerings to their Gods or deities.
Many religions use candles as offerings in mind. Think for a minute about twinkling lights turning on and off, on and off. Or the candles as they flicker and then grow bright again. Each time this happens it symbolizes more new light energy getting created and over time millions and millions of lights get lit up. Just consider the power that gets unleashed each time you turn on your twinkling lights. The multiplication of yang energy is incredibly powerful! And the brighter the lights offered, the greater it benefits the positive transformation of the minds of whoever is making the light offerings!
As we experience the season and celebration of Christmas and the New Year, remember how auspicious it is to decorate with plenty of new lights in your homes and to add these sparking wonders to your altars as well. And it’s nice to make such light offerings continuously throughout the year!
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.

By now you all should know how dangerous this nasty star can be! In 2017 it flies into the SOUTH and is problematic for those of you who are of the sign of the HORSE as well as any daughters in your family. Because this earth star has landed in the fire sector it becomes even stronger, so you must try to keep this sector as quiet a possible – no loud noise, renovations etc. here. If you were planning on a renovation in the south part of your home, put it off until another time. Be sure to place the powerful Triple Five Element Pagoda Pillar here – this is a strong cure specifically designed to combat the Five Yellow affliction.

Get the flow moving this season!
