Year of the Water Dragon 2012 Feng Shui Energy Tips

These energy tips are for all, but especially for the people of my beloved city, New York. As the song goes “if I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere…” New York City attracts the most driven and high-spirited people from around the country and the world trying to achieve their highest aspirations. For this reason, a lot of the people here feel great pressure all the time and are unable to relax or recharge as easily.

The Year of the (Water) Dragon that begins February 4, 2012 is a critical inflection point in the transitional cycle of humanity. So especially at this time, anyone who is serious about bouncing back or achieving their goals should tap into Chinese Five Elements Feng Shui energy techniques to create inner balance that can elevate positive energy and vibration, thereby opening the way to achievement of one’s higher goals.

If you were born in the year of the Hare or Dog, you need to be more careful to avoid accidents –  be extra cautious of any risky physical activities.  Any big moves that affect your financial portfolio should be discussed with wise counsel while applying a conservative attitude.

Things to do starting now and continuing through February 4th 2012:

  • Visit a spiritual place to reflect and set new goals in the Lunar New Year with a grateful heart, regardless of your current circumstances.  A humble and peaceful heart can connect to the Divine while a frightened or angry heart cannot – set yourself on the correct path.
  • Do some charity work and donation, especially during the Lunar New Year period – open the channel for the flow of prosperity.
  • Watch a Lunar New Year Lion Dance performance (preferably in person) to tap into the positive energy of many happy people.
  • Get an authentic Chinese Five Elements Feng Shui consultation that can help guide you to reach your highest potential personally and professionally in the upcoming Dragon year.  Time is of the essence to capitalize on the Dragon chi that could benefit you for years to come.

Energy-clearing rituals to do on February 3, 2012:

  • Do an energy clearing ritual that changes vibration of your space by using sage, incense, drums, bells or fire in a container at low energy meridian of the space according to authentic Chinese Five Elements Feng Shui, using a Feng Shui compass (Luo Pan).
  • Detox your space using energy-clearing prayers of the spiritual tradition you are aligned with.
  • Infuse sunlight and fresh air flow throughout the space.
  • Do a Sea Salt Bath or other spiritual cleansing Bath to wash off old and stressful energy from the ending Lunar cycle so that you’re open to receive the fresh new energy of the New Year.
  • Get a Life Reading by Master Pun Yin or Tin Sun Metaphysics on this day or prior to help you make the best strategy throughout the Year of the Dragon.

Test your luck in the Dragon Year:

If you are curious about your luck in the Year of the Dragon, you can measure it by trying to make eggs stand upright on a flat surface table around 6:22pm on 2/4 which is the official transitional time.  The wider side of the egg should be at the base, the more you can stand the higher your luck is, as long as you have good Feng Shui to complement it.  One can learn more about the significant of this ritual and how to do it properly by looking back in my website and blog about the event I held last year in Midtown Manhattan attended by the press and V.I.P. guests.

Helpful routines to stimulate and balance good energy throughout the Dragon year:

  • Find a location in the North or NorthEast direction near you that has some nature or landscaping that you can walk past every morning to put positive energy into your day.
  • Walk along the Hudson River or some other nature place where you can see the setting sun in the evening to release pressure that’s built up during the day.  This clears the slate so your evening can be happy.
  • Bring live or cut branches or flowers (never dried dead flowers) into your environment directly after one of the above actions to bring the positive energy with you into your space.
  • Do a sea-salt cleansing bath to reduce stress.

Things to be cautious about in 2012:

  • Avoid gatherings of large groups of people with destructive or negative energy because the energy can rub off on you.
  • Tune out from the news at night to clear and stabilize your energy for a good night’s sleep.

Bonus of Love to-do before February 4, 2012:

For an extra boost of positive energy, get an ideal companion who is always there for you emotionally.  Yes, before 2/4 2012, getting a dog during the Year of the Hare can bring you luck metaphysically since their correlation is beneficial according to the Chinese Zodiac system.

Veterinarian and bestselling author Dr. Allen M. Schoen, who pioneered the integration of holistic healing into animal health care and revolutionized the loving care of animals from humans validated this Chinese metaphysical suggestion.  His book Kindred Spirits encompassed findings about unconditional loving bound between humans and their pets that can increase the quality of life.  Dr. Schoen cautions though to make sure you have the right life style to have the right type of dog.  The wrong dog in a too hectic life could make life more stressful.

This is an unique piece of advice that merges ancient Chinese science of Feng Shui and Life Reading that has been followed for a couple of thousand years with a modern consciousness that relates with vibrational science humanity are more aware of now.

Adopting the right kind of dog before 2/4/12 could help boost happier energy for years to come and strongly recommended for people who live alone or have children who they can’t attend to enough.  This east meets west, old consciousness merges with new hopefully can bring more loving energy to the world in 2012 and beyond.

Royal Wedding: Kate Middleton Destiny Reading (Chinese Face Reading)

A harmonious or lasting marriage is ever harder to achieve as mankind become more and more self centered;  according to the Tin Sun Lineage, the grounding strength that holds a marriage together will be lacking if neither partner has the Five Elements completeness.  Fortunately Prince William has all 5 Elements.  But does Kate Middleton bring strong positive grounding to the relationship as well?

Through the many thousands of years old science of Chinese Destiny Reading, we see that she does.  Here are the major points to consider:

  1. Strong Yang Chi eyes – the expression as well as eye shape: commanding energy, eyes widely opened all the way.  Others with yang chi eyes are Tina Fey, Oprah Winfrey and Diane Sawyer.  The Yin Chi eyes have an opposite energy, heavy-lidded eyes that look sleepy or seductive.  Examples are Princess Diana, Elvis Presley and Marilyn Manroe (discussed in a previous blog post).
  2. Strong Yang Chi cheekbones  are high and wide, indicating the level of ambition, courage, power and strength to withstand life’s pressures.  Examples are Angelina Jolie, Helen Mirren and Anna Wintour.
  3. Cheekbones well balanced by a strong jaw that create a fairly square face shape together.  The strong jaw also represents that people take the words of this person seriously.  Examples, Steve Jobs, Angelina Jolie and Natalie Portman.
  4. Solid Yang Chi body posture.  Shoulders are squared, not slumping over, and stable even when moving about .  Examples are Michael Jordan, Natalie Portman and Heidi Klum
  5. Upward shape lips show optimism and sweetness – more comfort, less struggle.

This royal couple is more compatible with both partners each having significant elements that can enhance and solidify a successful marriage.  Prince William having all Five Elements while Kate Middleton having all the strong features in Face Reading  and other features in a Destiny Reading of the Tin Sun Lineage like strong Chi, Body Profile.  For perspective, Hillary Clinton has all the positive Destiny Reading features except the upturned lips.

In total, these characteristics indicate that Kate has the emotional strength and strong spirit to deal with the extreme pressure of marrying a prince that her beloved mother-in-law Princess Diana lacked.

Based on the theories listed above, Prince Charles and Princess Diana never had a fighting chance because neither had all Five Elements in their birth charts, while Princess Diana is weak in Destiny Reading items 1 through 4, above.  To make matters worse, Prince Charles has at least 50% of his Five Elements profile composed of Water Element that is more emotional and less steady.

Prince William can be accountable and loyal, upholding the duty he was born into and about to form with his new family.   The fact that this wedding is happening in the year of the Rabbit which is, for Prince William, born year of the Dog, a very auspicious year, is another harbinger of good things.  Good Karma that he found a woman special enough for him and good karma that they are giving us a breather to believe in sweetness of romance again.  Blessings on this royal couple!

Finding Love

Valentine’s Day + Chinese New Year Tiger (metal year wood sign) = Love Opportunity?

Would I find love and be loved?  This is the most common question my father Master Tin Sun and I have been asked by women in our combined nearly 100 years experience as Feng Shui and Chinese Life Reading masters. In our affluent and free society the downside has been that many people are set adrift in family units of one. Affluence makes this possible, but people who are not by nature contemplatives become more self absorbed and distract themselves with entertainment and the fulfilling of their material desires. With this kind of social isolation it becomes more difficult to connect, as there is no ‘natural’ progression – especially for people in their 30s 40s and beyond. The ‘constructed’ processes, like internet dating, can also create fear based on the lack of real connection with virtual (actual) strangers. As a defense mechanism, a lot of people chose to protect their hearts by putting their guards up.

My most basic suggestion is based on universal laws of attraction: Love attracts love. Romantic or couple love isn’t the only kind. Even if one doesn’t have a life partner, or even family, one’s life can be as imbued with love to the maximum as one wishes. First: get out of the house. Interact. Give. Volunteer for those less fortunate – a true way to open one’s heart center. At the same time, do contemplate. In quiet time (with TV, computer and iPhone off!) one can reconnect with one’s true purpose in this lifetime. Did you once want to play piano but give it up? Wanted to be a doctor but became a lawyer instead? It is in the NOW that there is power in pursuing one’s real dreams – even if in a small way – to reconnect with the joy and love of life that is the foundation of all love. It is your own job to fulfill your spirit. Don’t expect someone else to finish this puzzle and rescue you. We each can be the rescuers of our own souls. The healthier and better you are, the healthier the persons, circumstances and relationships you attract.

There are indications of one’s ability to find lasting love from Feng Shui Chinese Life Reading that may help:

  • Usually, those who could enjoy sweetness from relationships have palms that are developed, cushiony and soft to hold. Woman who would have companionship and comfort also rarely have a palm that is very bony and skinny. Also, the Love line near the base of the fingers running horizontally from the pinky inward usually is quite straight forward without much broken, overlapping and complicated pattern attached to this line.
  • Women who have eyes that are very watery or have excessive Yin energy that are seductive like Marilyn Monroe, sleepy looking, are called in Chinese Face Reading “Cherry Blossom Eyes.” This type of eye feature is associated with drawing people for lustful satisfaction, being exploited and dumped. If you notice your eyes are like this you can develop a more alert expression – and also beware of the energy you’re projecting – become conscious of it and change it.
  • Women who are loved rarely have a very pointy chin or slimmed jaw and these are the areas that reflect the companionship in their Golden Age. Loneness is associated with narrow face and squeezed jaw.

No matter which of the above category you belong to, there is a rare opportunity coming up this Valentine’s Day which is also the Lunar New Year that can help put the energy out there of fulfillment in love:

People who observe Lunar New Year are more sensitive to metaphysical significance in setting intention during the first day of the New Year because it is believed that it sets the momentum to the rest of the year. Being that Feb. 14, 2010 is not only Valentine’s Day, it is also the Lunar First in the Year of the Tiger which though it is a Metal Element year, Tiger is a Wood Element sign with Yang rising Chi. This means using that day wisely to set intention is like planting the seed in the most favorable time early on in a planting season.

If love is what you seek, follow this routine that had proven to have favorable result. On Feb. 13, 2010, start tuning in to your soul and connectivity to the divine energy by being more spiritual and calm. You could do so by taking a Energy Cleansing Bath mentioned in my earlier blog or other routine that can clear your core energy. Using this time to reflect, to feel your soul can provide the clarity that you don’t have year around when you are busy with responsibilities or social functions. Read a story or watch a movie that celebrates the power of love. Feeling hopeful is step one in inviting the intended energy to connect with you during the rest of the year. Listening to gentle music and taking it easy the rest of the evening is a way of healing, recharging so that you could radiate the energy your mind sets out to do.

Head to bed with a new set of pajamas and if love is one of your biggest wish, then, wearing pajamas consisting of pink which is the Fire Element with feminine energy would be helpful. This also reminds you of the feminine qualities that are more attractive than the aggressive, demanding, serious mode most women nowadays operate under most of the time in this demanding world. Woman is Yin as man is Yan, if our Yin and Yang energy is in balance, it sets the tone for both to connect.

Wake up on New Year’s Day with thoughts of those people, pets, locations or events that remind you of the sweetness in life. Count your blessings and be grateful as you do your morning prayer so that you can secure your connection with the divine energy that helps to bring forth blessings you set out to earn. Spend the rest of the day loving and pampering yourself by taking it easy and doing activities you enjoy. Reduce skepticism! Romance usually happens to those that let their guards down. Try to remember your temperament and the energy you radiate that day and duplicate that sweetness in how you feel about life. This would be the seed that enables you to grow the fruit intended.

Your mind setting the intention is the will that leads you to the reality. Hopefully by this time next year, you would be sharing the story of this experiment with the companion in your life. Good Luck!

Improving Your Business Results

As I quoted in my last blog post, “Success is the combination of good timing, helpful networking and optimal geography (Feng Shui).” The first two can be calculated by the Chinese Astrology/Four Pillars/Five Elements method, therefore minimizing risk. However, to achieve the commanding position in business or career all three must be aligned.

Timing
For example having a great real estate property for sale in the wrong time, like now. You can sing its praises until you turn your face blue, still not that many people will or even can buy because of the tough financing requirements now or fear of losing future income. Even if you have good networking and good Feng Shui, the curse of wrong timing would be very hard to overcome. In fact, there are plenty of business people experiencing this problem with their projects right now.

Networking
Helpful networking is necessary in this stage and age in order to achieve your goals. Not only do you have to know your own real strength and weaknesses from the Chinese Astrology character tendency, you also have to know if your partners (business and personal) or closes alliances are beneficial for you to work with. Through this, you can find out if you are in or going into a lucky or unlucky cycle of the Lunar Zodiac cycle rotation that begins on February 4th each year and ends on the next February 3rd. This can foretell if timing is working for or against you, allowing you to take the appropriate passive or proactive approach professionally and financially.

This is why a lot of top executives of major companies commission me to calculate their charts to augment their strategy decisions. This includes whom to hire in their direct team such as assistant or key positions like CEO, CFO, Marketing Director, Manager,… I often advise my clients not only hire the important support staff helpful to him or her, but, hopefully, these people as individual is going into high cycle so that they could bring “luck”, high energy onto the ship. Rubbing elbows with people in high cycle is beneficial while mingling people with low or bad luck has the adverse effect. Energy field is best to be preserved when we can and that’s why selecting the people with helpful energy in the inner circle is a smart thing to do. You get better advice, inspiring ideas more enjoyment out of people that are grounded in thinking that a low cycle person cannot bring to the table.

Geography
Optimal geography is good Feng Shui because even if you have good timing and networking, if the product you are selling is in the wrong location or market, all is defeated. This is why franchises spend a lot of money on market research so that they are placed correctly demographically, but, still, wrong spot in the area that has Feng shui problems still can affect their bottom line.

Current Cycle
Based on the Chinese Astrology cycle rotating into, the Water Element year in 2007 through Year of the Boar and 2008 Year of the Rat in this millennium is meant to go through flushing out the old and starting new in very dramatic ways. This Ox year of Double Earth is also heavy going for many. The turn of energy can be predicted and to some extent mitigated with a reliable advisor that has accurate metaphysical insight.

Future Cycle
February 4, 2010 begins the Year of the Tiger, therefore, helpful to people with Chinese Zodiac sign of Boar – not so good for Snake or Monkey. Tiger is a Wood sign, and 2010 will be a Metal year, so there is some conflict there (Metal chops Wood). Tiger year natives are vulnerable in Tiger year. However, this does not mean all Tigers would be unlucky because if the Five Elements is balanced through Feng Shui and the Chinese Astrology, palm, face, voice, chi feature is strong, according to the Chinese Destiny Reading of the Tin Sun Lineage, the chance of success would be possible. This is a comprehensive statistic and accurate science that has evolved for a couple of thousand years in the Chinese culture with documented record.

I told you! Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor by August 7, 2009!

People are the product of the environment and in most case, people are also the product of their destiny determined by birth data (date & time). According to the Chinese Astrology also known as the Four Pillar or Five Elements Calculations, our characteristic tendency, strength and weakness were determined at the time of our birth.

This philosophy is an ancient Chinese wisdom that has been around for a couple of thousand years with documented record just about that long as well. It is a statistic that is a very accurate in foretelling someone’s experience throughout one’s life time based on the personality, strength and weaknesses. The Chinese Zodiac year of birth to a person in relations to the rotation of the Chinese Zodiac year we are in from February 4 each year to February 3 the next gives insight whether we are in high or low cycle. The success rate to things we set out to do is easier when it is our high cycle and if our Five Elements of birth is positive to the Five Element cycle of the year, we can get what we want .

This was the reason why my blog posts of June 15th and July 16th predicted Judge Sotomayor would be confirmed. This is a good example to show that we should all know our own Five Elements composition so that we know which is the year we should be proactive or passive. Going with the wind is better than going against the wind wasting resources and energy.

In tough times like this, when a lot of people are trying to bounce back, those who consult Chinese Life Reading Specialist, like myself, would have the competitive advantage over others. The Tin Sun Lineage’s Chinese Life Reading that incorporate reading of the palm, face, Chinese Astrology, Chi , Voice, Body Profile can minimize guess work in life. Calculated risk is one that can be done if you have the reference that helps you to get an upper hand. An open mind to tap into all resources, especially when its still possible to get the benefit of the ancient Chinese wisdom like Chinese Life Reading and Feng Shui through masters with a strong track record and historic lineage. This way it is possible to shape a life strategy aligned with one’s own cycle within the universal cycle.

Palin’s Lesson

Silence is Golden and Sarah Palin should really learn this lesson from Hillary Clinton and Angelina Jolie, that I mentioned in the earlier blog post with her. Strong cheekbone / jaw bone featured-people have extremely strong pride – so they tend to do everything possible to be in a more commanding position. Sometimes, this driven tendency drives them to extremes – they go too far, becoming vulnerable to attacks.

Anjelina Jolie and Hillary Clinton learned that being passionate, proactive and outspoken can backfire – especially if, as in the case of Palin, one is acting on will, not a strong foundation. This is especially so for people with strong face features because their dominating energy stimulates opposition.

Hillary Clinton and Angelina Jolie, who achieved success early, went full force with their ambitions. Their uncompromising actions caused relationships to be stressed – and they, too became more vulnerable because they did not take the thought to develop a more humble public persona. They both learned the hard way how cruel public condemnation could be and figured out the strategy to break the curse of their “Strength” that could be hated by others.

When the Going Gets Tough – the Tough Get Smarter!
Hillary took the more humble road by starting as a junior senator and working her way up to earn respect as her own person with positive actions, not words. She developed strong collegial relationships in the Senate by hard work. Then, she “showed her human side” by being vulnerable” when the race to the White House was not looking like it was in her pocket. She instantly won a lot of people over – and is now Secretary of State. Angelina used humanitarian missions to change public opinion of her that won her the “hunk” of Hollywood (Brad), and world wide respect of her refugee mission.

During transition, both of these incredibly smart ladies did their best to minimize public statements while they kept on building an unselfish image by putting a meaningful cause before their self interests.

You Can’t Fool Enough People Enough of the Time
Improving oneself, contributing energy to a meaningful cause, avoiding drawing attention that brings scrutiny is the only approach that Sarah Palin should take if she dreams of ever having a future in politics. Even now, she thinks this drama is helping her, but the more she defends her choice and position now, the more she looks hollow, power-driven, and guilty of even more things in the eyes of the public. I don’t think most people buy that her stepping down is for the good of others.

When the going gets tough, the tough gets going; but, do it in a smart way like her predecessors. If you have strong features like these women, do try to humble yourself and listen to emotionally stable, wise people to keep you on track. When you think “you figured it out” all on your own, you might be about to self-destruct.
