Happy New Year as we welcome the Year of the Fire Rooster in just a few days. I don’t know about you, but I feel so much better with this fresh new energy in the air. With Chinese New Year coming early we enjoy the Lap Chun…always a good indication with promise of growth and essence of springtime!
By now you probably have thoroughly cleaned your home and have your feng shui cures in place in preparation for the New Year. If not you had better get to it. Yes, I’ve been harping on this a lot lately and for good reason. I’ve seen too many things happen unexpectedly and tragically to people who do nothing. You see, when harmful energies afflict your main door entry or the rooms that you use a lot, they can be very lethal.
That’s why it is so important that you take the time NOW because you can avoid bad luck and misfortune. You want to do everything possible and take every precaution to protect your family and this year it’s critical to look after the patriarch’s sector (NW) where the #2 illness star has flown and the matriarch’s sector (SW), afflicted by the violent # 7 robbery star.
And it’s not all bad of course! When you place specific cures in good fortune sectors that you wish to enhance you can expect many improvements…some will be subtle and some may surprise you. I think you’ll be amazed and happy with the results of taking care of your space every year and you’ll feel safe knowing you have done everything possible to protect your family and home.
If you missed my extravaganza this year, you can still get the 2017 videos by clicking the link below. I will be taking these down prior to New Year so do hurry if you still have to update your feng shui. And please don’t forget your workspace…chi energies transform everywhere each New Year so take care of your office as well.
Happy New Year! I wish much happiness and prosperity and good health for you and your families! Nothing makes me happier than knowing I have helped to make a small difference in your lives. This year brings lots of new and fresh opportunities…make it a great year!
Coping With Competition In 2017
At my 2017 extravaganzas, I reviewed the Paht Chee chart for this year and pointed out that while we have a well-balanced chart with all five elements present, there is a predominance of the water element with three yang water in the main chart. So water is the dominant element this year indicating the presence of many friends (and foes) but even between friends things could get nasty as competitive pressures increase. When we are placed in a competitive situation and must fiercely fight for something – in business, in romantic situations and in our personal lives there are all kinds of feelings and emotions that arise and they are usually not very pleasant.
So consider this fair warning –be ready for some tough competition that could really test you. It may be in business, politics and well, just about any area of daily living! In fact, if you follow American politics at all, look at the backbiting, unfair accusations and gossip…all the fake news surrounding the new American president elect Donald Trump with some even calling his election “illegitimate”.
An effective way to handle competition is to use a feng shui cure based on the 5-element theory. Since it is water that is causing the stress, you can exhaust it by placing wood energy in your space. Use healthy green houseplants in nice pots – these will exhaust the strength of the water element. So when you find yourself faced with tough competition (this is even stronger towards the end of the year) remember this simple cure of adding plants and wood energy!
Here at WOFS, we’ve also created some gorgeous helpful products like our friendship popularity scarf and butterfly pins. When you tie the popularity scarf that has been imbued with a special amulet around your neck, it will attract the good vibrations from those in authority and protect you from nasty competitive attacks – it works very well if you are presenting a new deal or interviewing for an upward career move.
Our butterfly pin has a very powerful mantra, which helps you avoid evil and nasty people. While it looks like a beautiful and harmless piece of jewelry, only you know of its secret powers of protection!
Use of all the above cures this year to help you through competitive times, when you are confronted with backstabbing and gossip. Because you know that competition is a given this year, it also means that you will need to work doubly hard to be successful. Success doesn’t come to those who are lazy and without resolve. Buckle down, work hard and use these feng shui tips to your advantage!
King Gesar for Business Luck
If you are running your own business it is an excellent idea to invoke the manifestations of King Gesar, the warrior manifestation of Guru Rinpoche portrayed as the Warrior King on his Windhorse and The Wealth King Gesar sitting on his throne. And it is not just business luck – you should invoke both manifestations into your home as well as office especially this year. I am so happy to tell you that many of my students and friends that have already invited these powerful images into their homes have seen marked improvement in success luck, particularly in their respective business ventures!
For those of you unfamiliar with King Gesar, he is a legendary figure of the Himalayas. You will normally find him riding on his Windhorse, the celestial representation of mankind’s lung ta. Welcoming these images brings new opportunities for growth and expansion as well as a reinforcement of your warrior spirit and strength so it is highly beneficial and recommended.
Set up an altar with the image of Wealth King Gesar (Dorje Tsegyel) and the five Dralla Generals. Arrange eight offering bowls as an offering containing the following (from left to right): two bowls of water, flower, incense, candle, water, fruit and conch. You can place another plate of food (any kind) as an additional offering and chant the following:
OM AH HUNG, DUN GYI NAMKHAR DUTSI TRIN KAR U
CHAYANG SAM PEL YISHYIN NORBU NI
GESAR DRALAY GYALPO CHENPO LA
MAGYAL LASOK TERDAK WERMÉ KOR
ZA TUNG JOR PA KHO GIU YO JEY TSOG
YESHE DÜTSI DÖ GIU JUNGNÉ SU
JINGYI LABPÉ CHOPA DAMPA DI
KYECHOK NORBU KHOR DANGCHÉ LA BUL
NANGSI MA LU DRIB MEY SALER ZIK
CHOK MEN BAR MEY DROWA KÜN LA CHE
DÖDÖN YISHYIN NORBÜ TSUL TSOLWA

LU MEY YUNG DRUNG NORBÜ TUK LONG NÉ
MA YANG ZEY NOR DÖGÜ CHAR CHENPÖ

There is enormous power in chanting mantras – the best way to develop a spiritual connection with the energies of Guru Rinpoche and his manifestation, King Gesar. King Gesar’s presence will give you confidence and inner encouragement to move forward with new projects and expansion so that you can take advantage of all the wealth opportunities that present themselves in 2017!
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.

Don’t make the mistake of energizing any of the unlucky sectors of your home. Put the appropriate cures in place and then remember to keep it quiet – no renovations, digging and banging, no loud TV or music and no bright lights! This year it’s important to note the following affected areas – in the SOUTH (5 Yellow), the WEST (hostile 3 star and the Tai Sui). Keep things quiet.
What’s your tolerance level? It’s hard not to lash back when someone pushes your button and annoys or upsets you. It’s even harder when that person knows all your tender spots. The next time this happens, instead of reacting, why not try to “raise” your tolerance level. Take it up a notch and tell yourself that no one and nothing can get to you. Just do and say nothing. The sound of silence is very powerful indeed.
