Some topics include how to select the color of your car that matches your individual kua number, how to maximize your career luck, how to attract romance if single or enhance your marriage and more!

Why Feng Shui?

Feng Shui expands a person's influence to allow him/her to make a difference in life. It enables a person to set and obtain goals to make the most out of one's environment instead of being controlled by it. Feng Shui makes a person great, generous and fulfilled individual.

Feng Shui define where it is most advantageous to live, how to create a beneficial environment, and how to turn one's workplace, business, home, or landscape into the best center of power. It is believed that Feng Shui provides guidance that enables business owners, and builders to succeed in their endeavors. With the help of Feng Shui, those who live in their own homes or rent apartments can achieve harmony and prosperity within their existing living space.

Feng Shui guides people on how to arrange objects so there will be harmony in the place that they occupy. The process can be as simple as placing a couch in the best location in the living room or as complex as placing the house in the best location on an empty lot. According to geomancers and feng shui consultants, whoever follows the principles of Feng Shui will have an enhanced and energized life. As a result, achieving his/her dreams in life. A large part of feng shui success comes from an individual's intention. Instead of being negative or pessimistic. Say Affirmation such as. "I am blessed, I am healthy, I am wealthy, I am happy, I am successful, I am fulfilled." Such statements empower oneself to be something other than who he/she is at the moment. The power of intention and that of faith can motivate one's greatest potential. Positive energy does, in fact, attract positive energy.

      Great lens! Another approach for those without a feng shui compass is to simply use the feng shui bagua octagon. The career edge of the octagon sits along the front wall, where the entry door is located. An easy way for anyone to apply feng shui to a room or their house without the "specialist" equipment.
