Feng Shui: Superstition or more?
June 7th, 2012
There is plenty of discussion of the effectiveness of Feng Shui. While some people are true believers, others think it is nothing but superstition and hokum. This article from SBS Australia is a very good look at the overall subject.
IMHO, Feng Shui is very powerful, for a bunch of reasons. More than anything, if you take the time to pay attention to the things around you, and to make your living and work spaces harmonious and happy, you will work better and you will live better. The power of Feng Shui I think is often in that it focuses your attention on the things that we often forget, and we end up with much happier lives.
2012 The Year of the Dragon – 4709
January 23rd, 2012
2012 is the year of the Dragon – Happy New Year everyone! It’s the year 4709 by the Chinese calendar.
This is a “water dragon” year, which may mean things like more flooding, more natural disasters, and perhaps even continued cooling of the economy. It is also sometimes referred to as the Black Dragon or a Black Dragon year.
You can check out some information here for your new year (careful of all the ads!), and this story is a pretty good summary of what may lie ahead.
Is Your Home Feng Shui Positive?
July 13th, 2011
Here is an interesting article from Suffolk Times about Feng Shui and your home. It’s a nice little primer on the subject, and raises some good questions and points, especially for people who are just starting out on Feng Shui. I particularly like the way that she compares stale air to stale energy. Clearly if the air cannot flow, the energy likely does not flow either. The article is certainly some interesting Feng Shui reading.

Senior Chinese Official Who Supports Feng Shui Promoted
May 14th, 2011
This is a very interesting story for supports of Feng Shui. It seem that Chinese senior official Wang Yinfeng from Chongqing municipality objected strongly to a building project in his area last year because it would hurt the feng shui of other buildings in the are and bring bad chi into the region. He was very agressive in his campaign, and he ordered a stop to the development. Some people felt that this would be a sort of career suicide. Well, the good chi must have been rolling his way, because this official has been promoted to deputy secretary-general of Chongqing municipal government. It seems that supporting feng shui can really bring good fortune!

2011 Year of the Rabbit
January 22nd, 2011
Spring Festival time is almost upon us again, and 2011 is the year of the Rabbit (Metal Rabbit, to be exact). People born in the Year of the Rabbit are articulate, talented, and ambitious. They are virtuous, reserved, and have excellent taste. Rabbit people are admired, trusted, and are often financially lucky. They are fond of gossip but are tactful and generally kind. Rabbit people seldom lose their temper. They are clever at business and being conscientious, never back out of a contract. They would make good gamblers for they have the uncanny gift of choosing the right thing. However, they seldom gamble, as they are conservative and wise. They are most compatible with those born in the years of the Sheep, Pig, and Dog. According to Chinese tradition, the Rabbit brings a year in which you can catch your breath and calm your nerves. It is a time for negotiation. Don’t try to force issues, because if you do you will ultimately fail. To gain the greatest benefits from this time, focus on home, family, security, diplomacy, and your relationships with women and children. Make it a goal to create a safe, peaceful lifestyle, so you will be able to calmly deal with any problem that may arise.
Happy Year of the Rabbit 2011 and enjoy your Spring Festival!

Did Feng Shui Stop Chongqing Construction?
October 31st, 2010
Sort of a weird story, where it is reported that construction in Chongqing was stopped by an official concern for the effects of the new construction on the feng shui of existing Government buildings:
A RECORDING clip on the Internet allegedly showing a government official talking about fengshui has sparked controversy as it seemed to suggest the construction of a building was halted because the official believed it would disturb the fengshui of a nearby government compound.
Several versions of the recording have been uploaded onto the Internet. In the longest recording, lasting 31 minutes, a man alleged to be Wang Yinfeng, Party chief of Jiangjin district in south-west China’s Chongqing Municipality, said the under-construction building would block the government building and asked men said to be representatives from the real estate companies: ‘Do you know what fengshui is?’
