Feng Shui Concepts
By Jenny T. Liu, M.A.
Good Feng Shui with Adjustments Brings Immediate ResultS In an early case study, I wrote about an old devoted client of mine, Al, (all names changed) who took my recommendations very seriously and spent a year looking for a Beverly Hills apartment with compatible feng shui. During that year, he and his wife have moved eight times in the last thirteen months. He tells me that his health has never been worse. However, he has been taking herbal tonics and seeing an acupuncturist. Things at work were miserable as he was demoted. He was at the end of his wits. I explained the fact that he has been moving from place to place as much as he had is no wonder his energies are spent. This can make anybody extremely unstable and vulnerable to negative influences. It was very important for him to settle down in a home and establish his energies again. Finally, he had found a compatible apartment and had me over to doublecheck the feng shui. The main door, back door, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms were all in the right directions for Al and his wife, Leah. There were some minor adjustments that needed to be made. A week later, Al and his wife moved in and did all the adjustments. He called to let me know the next day that he had gotten his position back at work.
Every year, I recommend for all my clients to readjust their feng shui as the annual energies change and can become unstable if proper adjustments are not made. Al and his wife made sure to do this for their home. At our meeting, Al explained to me that things at work were becoming extremely intolerable. His superiors were taking advantage of his talent and not treating him with respect nor giving him fair compensation for his contribution. He was going to make a proposal to change this, knowing he could lose his job. Two weeks later, I received a call from him. Al explained that after he made the adjustments, he submitted his proposal. He has now been promoted and getting five times his current salary. I congratulated him and we both again confirmed the power of good feng shui. After all, things should only get better if you have good feng shui. Now, Al and Leah can build the better life they both deserve.
Doing it Right from the Start
Areta consulted with me two years ago when she had purchased an office building she was going to convert into a clinic. Areta is a strong and ambitious woman who believed in doing things right from the very start. Instead of consulting me after she had moved in, she consulted me before she made any structural changes. In my experience, because of this, she not only saved herself a lot of money and headaches, she gained many benefits in her business. Aretaís office building did match her Western Direction Pattern energies as it was oriented sitting west. However, the main doors were on the south side and did not match. The building was also very long and narrow, originally divided into three separate units. I recommended for her to use just the first two units to keep the office more proportional in form and balanced in energy. She could expand later once her business is stabilized and strong. I designed the interior room layouts indicating the best places for her, her partner, her staff and all the different functions of the clinic. I recommended for her to try and hire people who are compatible with her and each other. Even if they are not compatible, it is very important for them to be situated in areas where they can function efficiently. When this was not possible, adjustments were made. All the colors and furniture were placed according to feng shui based on her birth energies. This has allowed her and her staff to be proficient in running the business rather than dealing with problems and costly mistakes.
Aside from the feng shui, Areta also had me design her business logo and company name according to the symbols, numerology and colors that promote her success. Areta also made sure her own homeís feng shui was properly adjusted. This year when it was time to do her readjustments, she happily announced to me that things have been going extremely well for her, and she was not only consulting me for the annual readjustments, but to design her office expansion as well. Although she was in a rush to get more space in her office, Areta told me she would never do anything without consulting me first. Her success is a reflection of her good judgement.
