pearls!” is a proverb my Master often quoted.
simple re-arrangement of furniture can work magic. Once
in a lady’s house, I looked at the bed and enquired
who used it. When I learnt she was the user, I knew
she’d be the one with health problems and she opened a
cabinet full of medicines. I simply advised her to
change the bed to another side of the room! She is as
fit as a fiddle today.
shui is about the position where you place your head
post in your bedroom and which side you face while
sleeping. Generally the master bedroom should face
South-West or North -West direction.

Use earthy colors like green, blue, white or cream.
Light and pastel shades are welcome. Avoid red and black

use these elements like plants, water, brass plates,
bells, mud and loads of intuition. Based on the kua or
the birthdates, place yourself in a certain sector,
facing your best direction. This ensures you get what is
already freely available in nature!
last but not the least, fate plays a crucial role in our
life and applying Feng Shui is like going down on a
parachute. We know we’re falling, but at least let the
landing be smooth!
