Feng Shui Seminar at Disneyland

Feng Shui Seminar at Disneyland

In January 2011, the Asian American society Compass invited 168 Feng Shui Advisors to present a traditional Feng Shui seminar to the Asian American and other interested employees of Disneyland Resort. This was in celebration of the Chinese New Year.

They asked Sophia Tang Shaul of 168 Feng Shui Advisors to do a review of the Disneyland park and provide insight into the Feng Shui of Disneyland.   As you can see from the photos, the seminar was a tremendous success and was well received.

 


 

Finding your Best Feng Shui Directions

Finding your Best Feng Shui Directions

Everyone asks us how to determine their favorable and unfavorable Feng Shui Directions for sleeping, working, study, etc. Each person aligns with one of the 8 Feng Shui directions and can use four of the directions to their benefit. Below are some guidelines on finding out what your directions are.

First, Feng Shui is based on the Solar Calendar, not the Lunar Calendar. The commonly known “Chinese New Year” is typically the Lunar Calendar. Some forms of Chinese astrology are based on the lunar calendar, but Feng Shui is based on the sun, which influence our seasons and dictate our climates.

The Chinese hold February 4th as the “Spring Establishment,” or the time when the new solar year begins. If you where born before February 4th you belong to the prior year’ s trigram. If you are born on February 4th or 5th, you should check with 168 Feng Shui Advisors for the exact Trigram based on the time of your birth.

To find out how best to position yourself at home and at work, please find your Trigram based on your birth date. Then look below to determine your favorable and unfavorable directions.

Align yourself with your best Feng Shui Directions:

Using the Chart below, find your Trigram. Then look at the directions across. These are your good to bad directions (from Left to Right). The second chart below shows the significance of these directions.

Ideally, you want to place your back to the A direction (receive support from this direction) and sleep with your head pointing to the D direction. The directions of A through D are beneficial and the directions of E through H are to be avoided. The D direction is your Trigram’s native direction. It is also your most comfortable direction. This is a good Feng Shui direction for sleeping or relaxing.

Feng Shui Directions summary

Do not take these as literal interpretations, but rather as indicators of the “potiential.” Remember that the area of qi you are in has an effect and that can be stronger than the directions. In other words, if you are in a good area of qi and oriented to the negative direction, the qi has a more direct effect on you so you will prosper.

Use this chart as a guideline to finding your ideal directions or areas and avoid orienting yourself to the negative directions or within negative areas. The study of Feng Shui is like an onion. You can peel away the layers one by one and discover that there are other influences on levels. Feng Shui is truly a lifelong study.

Feng Shui Mirrors

Feng Shui Mirrors

Frequently, Feng Shui practitioners in America utilize mirrors as a cure. We consistently see mirrors being used upon the recommendation of a prior “master.” According to one web site, “Mirrors are known to be the aspirin of Feng Shui” (Although I tend to think of them as placebos). What do these mirrors do and how do they affect the Feng Shui in a house or business?

Let me first start out with saying that 168 Feng Shui Advisors recommends the use of mirrors as a bathroom tool to comb your hair by. Beyond that, mirrors only serve a visual or artistic effect. Mirrors have been misrepresented as a Feng Shui “cure” by a lot of practitioners. Here in this country, these practitioners claim that feng shui mirrors will reflect negative Chi and spirits. Have you ever tried to reflect heat with a mirror, or perhaps x-rays? Mirrors only reflect light, a narrow area of the energetic spectrum. Chi, defined as “life energy,” flows around and through each of us, is not diverted by a four inch, eight edged mirror.

Using Feng Shui Mirrors

Mirrors have a useful nature. They can be used to hide pillars, to expand the appearance of a room, and to be used in a piece of art. A small restaurant in Monterey Park, California, which we frequent, uses mirrors to hide the support pillars of the restaurant. Without the mirrors, the pillars would divide the room and make the restaurant appear smaller. While this is an architectural remedy, but has nothing to do with the chi of the building. It can be said that from a Feng Shui perspective, it does create a better environment. After all, Feng Shui is about creating a more comfortable and supportive environment. Let me clarify, while mirrors might be recommended as a visual change, they are not a remedy against bad chi.

Traditional Feng Shui utilizes only the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal, and water as remedies to energetic issues in a house or building. Mirrors do not play any part as a remedy. Often you will see mirrored baguas opposing each other on two houses that face each other. Sometimes there will be a bagua feud – the bigger bagua wins. This is not Feng Shui, but rather superstition mixed with egotism. Traditional Feng Shui does not subscribe to mysticism, superstition, or religion.

Clearing up the mystery of Feng Shui Mirrors

So how did mirrors get mixed into Feng Shui concepts? It is very likely that one of two things (or perhaps both) created this belief in mirrors. First, in the Middle Ages, mirrors were made of polished brass. A master would suggest that you need a mirror in a certain area. It was not the mirror, but rather the brass (metal element) that would create the remedy.

Another very likely misunderstanding is a very well known Feng Shui book title: “Eight House Mirror Theory.” This book says nothing about mirrors as a remedy, but rather, it infers that after performing calculations based on the eight directions, you will have the answer before you as clear as a mirror. Again, people who knew about this book, but did not know or understand its contents probably took the title as a literal recommendation.

Mirrors as stated above, can create an architectural or artistic effect, but are not to be mixed with Feng Shui remedies. If you are looking for a Feng Shui practitioner, be wary of those who prescribe mirrors as a solution to your Feng Shui woes.

Most practitioners utilize only the first two (building and environment). People and Time are especially key to an accurate Feng Shui reading.

There are many Feng Shui “masters” who have learned from books or have taken classes from anyone who holds a seminar. 168 Feng Shui Advisors have dedicated themselves to learning the deepest aspects of Feng Shui from only Master Larry Sang, founder of the American Feng Shui Institute. In fact, as instructors at the Institute, we have taught many of the practitioners in Los Angeles for more than 15 years!

Arranging an on-site consultation

If you are looking for a Los Angeles Feng Shui expert, we would be happy to provide you with a detailed Feng Shui analysis.

In certain situations, we travel to various places around the US to provide fengshui consultations. For appointments outside of the Southern California area we need at least 30 days notice. Please contact us below for more details and to arrange both an appointment and travel considerations.

What is needed?

We ask that you provide us, either before or at the time of the analysis:

  • An accurate floor plan
  • The year the building was built
  • The birth dates of all occupants.

Feng Shui Consultations by email?

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide long distance readings by email, fax, or letter. We feel that like a good doctor who will not prescribe medicine without first meeting the patient, a qualified Feng Shui practitioner should not provide recommendations without examining the building and environment first-hand.

You can however post general questions at the American Feng Shui Institute’s Intro to Feng Shui Forum!

Costs?

The cost of an on-site consultation varies with the size of the property or development, travel time, and the depth of analysis. Custom home developments and consultations, or consultations outside of the greater Los Angeles area, are priced on a project by project basis.
