Troubled Business Pulls Through
A Case Study
By Jenny Liu
Caren and her husband Larry (names changed for privacy) own a multi-million car auction business in the Orange County region with two branch offices. In 1998, they were involved in a lawsuit and on the verge of bankruptcy. They had been in the business for many years and did not want to give it up. Caren and Larry are honest business people who work extremely hard and it seemed no matter how much money they earned, it never seemed to be enough. There was always some unexpected expense or problem cropping up. Caren felt strongly that something was simply not right. She and Larry decided to get their feng shui adjusted.
Caren and Larry are both Western Direction Pattern people. One of their buildings is oriented on a southwest/northeast axis that matches them. However, their personal offices were in the east sector and their main door faced southeast. Both east and south-east directions are associated to the wood element. These wood energies defeat Larry’s earth and Caren’s metal elements and they are likely to bring conflicts and troublemakers such as lawsuits. Among many of the feng shui adjustments I recommended, the most important was for them to create personal offices in the west sector of their building.
In their second building, Car-en’s personal office is located in the southeast corner, which does not match her. Larry’s office is located in the northeast corner. Although it matches him, in that particular year the northeast direction brought problems. Again, many recommendations were made to improve the building’s feng shui. Nonetheless, because Caren could not relocate her office in this second business location, I suggested she minimize her time in this office.
Caren is a meticulous person who followed my recommendations to the tee. From the furniture placements, staff relocation, colors, crystals, and art work, she did her best to adjust her office’s feng shui. Because Caren’s and Larry’s birth charts show they are vulnerable to having other people trouble them in their business, it was vital for them to have special mantras and meditations in addition to the feng shui to release negative energies.
This year, she attended our semi-annual seminar and at the end she gratefully shared her story with all the participants. I was extremely touched by her story as she explained her situation and how the feng shui and meditations have been a great help to her and her business. She pointed out that after two years of legal preparation and several months of feng shui adjustments and mediations at the litigation, the judge completely ruled in her favor without even looking at the documentations. In her mind, there is no doubt about the power and effectiveness of feng shui. The benefits of her investment in the feng shui consultation far outweighed her legal expenses. To her it was a miracle as to how much her business could progress once such a heavy burden was lifted.
