Feng Shui advice for the Year of the Snake 2013
Dear Friends, Another year over and it was a difficult one for wealth for many people. But the well-made plans and developments of last year will bear fruit in this one. This year the focus changes to support and stability for your family and business. It was a very big year for me personally when my book ‘Feng Shui – Seeing is Believing’ was published by Wisdom Publications of Boston, U.S.A. It is available in both hard copy and ebook versions from Amazon and other good outlets. Check it out at: http://www.wisdompubs.org/pages/display.lasso?-KeyValue=33182&-Token.Action=&image=1 I also made the pilot episode of my TV series – ‘Wind and Water’ in Florence and I have already filmed one of the 13 episodes which is set in India (on attracting the luck of Mentors) in full HD quality. The other 12 episodes will be filmed all around the world this year for release in 2014. If you would like to invest in this unique and highly beneficial project let me know. Keep an eye on my website for developments. http://www.jlgeomancy.com Now it is time to look at the Feng Shui tips for the year of the Water Snake. Will it be a lucky year for you? The principal negative influence this year is in the centre of your home and business premises. It is important to have metal in the centre of your building this year. This is necessary to control the ‘Five Yellows’. It is a year when you may have problems finding support and you should take care that the central sector of your place is well set up. As I mentioned before, you should be aware that Feng Shui recommendations do not make up the entirety of your luck. You must first create the cause of good fortune by performing good actions with good intentions. Any major moral philosophy will explain how to do this. Then the seeds of potential good fortune are created. For example, the seeds of wealth come from generosity and the seeds of health come from not harming but helping (even insects). What goes around, comes around. Feng Shui techniques explain how to create the right environmental conditions so that these seeds can ripen and opportunities for good fortune arise. Then it up to you to make the most of those opportunities. Using your good directions is a major part of creating conducive environmental conditions. In last year’s blog I mentioned the great importance of using your good directions (and avoiding your bad ones). Everybody has four good directions and four bad ones and I explained these in some detail. If you missed that information I highly recommend that you familiarise yourself with it before you do anything else. It can change your life! https://jampaludrup.wordpress.com/2012/03/01/time-to-get-a-good-direction-for-your-life/ However, you must also be aware of the yearly influences, which sometimes render even your good directions negative. These negative yearly influences are called the ‘Grand Duke’ and the ‘Three Killings’. This year the direction of the Grand Duke is still the southeast. The precise compass bearing is from 143 to 157 degrees. He is like a grumpy old general and it is not good to sit facing him even if the southeast is one of your good directions. You can sit with your back to him no problem. I also recommend that you do not sleep with your head toward this negative influence. If you are planning renovations, do not start them in the southeast. The direction of the Three Killings is the east. It is important that you do not sit with your back to this direction. In other words, you should not sit facing the west this year. If you do, there is a danger of criticism or ‘back-stabbing’. You can sit facing the east with no problem. The third negative influence is the ‘Five Yellows’. This corresponds to a location within your building and not the direction. This year the Five Yellows is in the central sector of your place. This brings a condition for sickness, money problems and general bad luck for anyone who spends a lot of time in this location. It is a heavy earth energy influence and it is cured by hanging a metal wind chime with six hollow tubes in the central sector. If your bedroom is in this sector of the house or apartment you should consider sleeping in another room for the year. If you were born in the year of the Snake this should be a good year for you anyway. If you were born in the year of the Pig it may be difficult. Wishing you all the very best of luck in the year of the Snake!
