Last year I was in Singapore and a long time friend invited me to stay over and as we caught up after so long, we suddenly touched the subject of feng shui since she knew the reason I was in Singapore was to assist Master Leyau in the class. She never thought I could end up in this field…Haha…anyway,
She started to tell me how it all started when the husband engaged the feng shui master to audit the house prior to renovation. Then she lamented that it was not “smooth” even after couple of years. She then asked me a few questions related to what she observed and what the Master told them but I could not comment for a while as I don’t know her house. Finally, she asked me to take a “look” at her house. So as a childhood friend, how can I say no and after all she offered me free accomodation.
Out of curiosity my first question to her was “Where did he take the direction?” She promptly replied me “Here!” . I just acknowledged and wish her good night as it was already late, by my standards..haha… I promised to check it tomorrow morning. I already know the answer because that is not where you should take the house facing based on her condominium structure.
Next morning, while everyone was still asleep, I measured the condominium and later I asked her just a few questions and to my surprised it was Yes all the way…now I know ….
2 lessons learnt: 1. always do good, for you may be returned with free services…haha…2. fundamental things when is not well mastered, it spells disaster for yourself or your clients.
Jokes aside, simple things like where to take direction when is done wrongly, it make a whole lot of difference. Taking house direction or house facing is an art very important in the practise of feng shui.
Unfortunately, in her house, all the furnitures, bed etc…was fixed, typical situation in Singapore houses…sad but lastly I told her only 1 remedy. Happily 3 months later she dropped me a thank you sms that things has improved a little.
I was happy for her…the least I can do for a long time friend.
The reason I shared this is not to sell CAFS courses nor me as a consultant but rather to emphasize that in the study of Feng Shui, don’t be too eager to apply advance techniques or too eager to practise feng shui commercially but rather master the fundamentals well. There is a saying “Rome was not built in a day.” Acquire the right knowledge for wrong knowledge is worse than no knowledge.
When the basics are strong, many problems are already solved and friends, remember that everything has it’s own Karmic values.
