On March 9, 2013, I was invited to attend Newton’s first citywide Chinese Cultural Festival as a panelist. The panel discussion included Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture, Feng Shui, Tai Chi, and Healing Ancient Music of Guqin (古琴). As a Feng Shui consultant, I gave a speech on “The Ancient Wisdom of Feng Shui: Balance the Energy around You and Bring Fortune to Everyday Life”.
When Ms. Lei Relley, the Moderator of the panel discussion, asked for my opinion about an appropriate common topic for all panelists, I suggested the topic of Qi. Not only is Qi the life force energy that touches all aspects of Chinese culture, but it is also the core idea of traditional Chinese Medicine (herbal medicine and acupuncture), Tai Chi and Feng Shui. Ms. Relley accepted my suggestion, and in the panel discussion, we all shared our knowledge of how to improve circulation of Qi inside our bodies by applying different means.
By applying Chinese herbs, Dr. Weidong Lu showed a particular herbal medicine that not only can treat some illnesses, but also can reduce the side effects of chemotherapy. Abby Kessler showed how to use acupuncture to treat a patient’ shoulder pain and Steve Chan showed how Tai Chi works. All the means they applied help improve circulation of Qi inside our bodies.
When it was my turn to talk about Feng Shui, I pointed out that all doctors, acupuncturists and Tai Chi masters are dealing with Qi’s physical circulation. Feng Shui not only deals with physical circulation of Qi, but also deals with spiritual part of Qi.
In Feng Shui, the spiritual part of Qi is called “Ming Yun” (命运), the word “Ming” means fate, and the word “Yun” means luck. A particular Qi was created into a baby’s body with Ming (fate)’s information when this baby was born and the luck governs the trajectory
of this baby’s life. Fate is immutable but luck can be improved by applying Feng Shui means. The purpose of Feng Shui is to understand our fate and improve our luck.
Each person’s fate is associated with a unique Qi and based on a person’s Qi, an experienced Chinese Feng Shui consultant can make a unique Feng Shui plan to improve this person’s luck by adjusting his/her body’s Qi and his/her living environment Qi.
As you can see, analyzing a person’s fate is critically important in the Feng Shui practices. Without accurate personal fate information, a Feng Shui consultant cannot make any proper Feng Shui adjustments. A Feng Shui consultant is like a doctor. If a doctor doesn’t know what kind of illness a patient has, how can the doctor offer the treatment plan?
However, analyzing a person’s fate is very difficult, even for an experienced Chinese Feng Shui master. Many of my clients hire me to analyze their fates about their careers, marriages, health, relationships and wealth, and then to help them improve their luck.
Of all the Feng Shui services, I particularly like the analysis of a person’s fate because it is a very challengeable logical analysis. You never know what kind of personal fate you will see, how difficult a case you will have. Every time I help a client, I have a sense of accomplishment.
In my next article, I will introduce a case to show readers how I analyze a person’s fate.
