omniscience not being the purview just of the Gods. Lillian
Too shares her thoughts on all this within.

Lillian also touches on Taoist Feng Shui, which has not been
given enough credence in modern feng shui literature. When
learning feng shui, one can get caught up in the formulas,
the countless charts and the numerological sequences,
but it is always vitally important to go back to basics and
notice also the simple stuff. She addresses this in her article
on Capturing the Chi of Prosperity, encouraging her
readers to develop the feng shui eye and to sometimes allow
intuition and instinct to play a part in feng shui analysis.

Some call this developing psychic ability, a skill that lays


latent in all of us. How psychic one can be depends on how
much practice you focus on this ability, but like any other
ability, with the will and the effort, it can be acquired and
mastered.

5MAGNIFICENT RATIOS
This is one of my absolute
favourite aspects of mystical
Feng Shui and I have used it,
recommended it and written about
it many times before. It is from the
magic ratio that I have derived my
own personal lucky number. The
ratio is 1:1.618 . The size of rooms,
halls, foyers, windows, tables, rugs,
carpets, book covers, calling cards,
even logos and so forth that follow
the dimensions of this ratio can
lead to a shape that is certain to
create absolute good fortune.

6FLOWING WITH THE DRAGONS BREATH


It is a good idea to consciously create a moving flow of Chi inside the
home, allowing it to travel along a winding trajectory. Using a combination
of light and heavy furniture, create natural pathways that everyone usesTry to
change the flow of Chi each year, as this will awaken hidden stagnant energy.
This will allow the Dragons cosmic breath to flow naturally within the home.

7LUCKY NUMBERS
Everyone has a number that is unique to themselves, and this can be
a single number or a two-digit number. This number can be related to
your birth date or to the numerology patterns derived from the alphabets
of your name. Whatever it is, once you know the number that brings you
luck, consciously use the number so that it constantly gets activated e.g.
for your car, as your phone number, or as your password. You can activate
lucky numbers in many ways. This will also reaffirm the luck associated
with the number.

8AWAKENING
THE COSMIC QI
This means activating all the things
around you. Your home must always
enjoy Chi that is alive. Thus every
year, clean out the stagnant Chi that
has settled in dark corners, behind
cabinets, or withered away in the
gardens. It is impossible to list out all
the instances when Chi can stagnate
or die. You have to set about going
through the rooms of your home and
the different sectors of your garden
and re-awaken energy that has gone
to sleep. Awaken the cosmic Chi and
you will feel a revitalising in your
energy. You should also wake up Chi
energy in your home when someone
gets suddenly seriously ill!

13CLOUD SENSATIONS & SYMBOLS
Remember that clouds always mean good luck. Skies without clouds
are unlucky skies! Looking above and seeing the patterns of the clouds is
incredibly useful in measuring the feng shui of your part of the Universe.
Often, looking up, you can sense the Lord of the heavens trying to tell you
something, because cloud formations often reveal symbols that hold meaning
for you and you alone. These are the signs from heaven.

See if you can make out some of these good fortune signs, such as deities,
gods and goddesses, celestial creatures like Dragons and Chi Lins, chariots,
horses, carriages, and auspicious symbols of the Gods implements and tools
such as tridents and vajras. These all portend good things. Cloud images never
last very long, and when you ask someone else to see them, usually the winds
come and disperse them. Be observant!
14SMELLING THE WIND
This is a skill that gets better
with practice and doing it with
awareness on a daily basis will heighten
your psychic abilities. When you
start to smell the winds you will soon
begin to catch the subtlest of scents
that come with strong winds and
likewise with gentle breezes. Soon
you will become sensitive to the winds
that blow from different directions.
Smelling the winds is a practice that
awakens your deepest senses. Good
feng shui homes always smell good!

16WEALTH &

In all the spiritual traditions of
the world, trees have always been
honoured as the life-giving source
of the most amazing growth Chi.
When you surround yourself with
nine varieties of trees, they bring
the completion of every kind of
aspiration luck. Taoist Feng Shui
Masters have always been very fond
of Wealth Trees and Life Trees, to
the extent that trees have become
immortalised in feng shui lore.

19CAPTURING THE CHI OF MOONLIGHT


The Taoist Masters work with both the Chi of Sunlight and Moonlight.
For soft magic that is gentle and all-embracing, we work first with the power
of moonlight, which is in actual fact reflected sunlight. Moonlight is yin,
feminine and pacifying. And it is extremely powerful. It is also subtle and
can be channelled into our bodies through strong visualisation on a quiet moonlit
night. The best time to do this is during the Hours of the Rat between 11pm and
1am, the time when the old day gives way to the new day.

Stand with feet about one foot apart in the Chi Kung stance, hands hanging relaxed
by your side. Then look up at the moon and visualize the light of moon shining
down and entering the centre of your body directly into the spot that is just
above the navel, about three inches below the breast. You need to capture a good
amount of moonlight Chi to empower your ability to create wish-granting magic.

In the old days, disciples would do this every month during the nights of the
waxing moon until the moon reaches full moon. This is the start to practising
Taoist magic!

victory throughout the year! The Laughing Buddha removes

The teapot was coveted by over 10 bidders, and is one of only two known to be an ode to
Emperor Qianlongs adoration of tea.
The teapot has an Imperial poem inscribed on one side and a restful idyllic outdoor scene in the style of classical
Chinese scholar paintings on the other side. There is a partially hidden pavilion, an overhanging pine tree, a
meandering pathway, a view of water, rocks signifying mountain, a wall with a moon gate, a scholar - very likely
the Emperor himself - admiring an open handscroll with writing implements nearby. An attendant serves him tea
brewed by a second assistant some distance away.
The whole painting is reminiscent of excellent feng shui, where an Imperial scholar can sit in silent contemplation.
It is a happy scene and for sure, the beautiful light green teapot is likely to bring good fortune royal energy to
whoever displays it for daily viewing. The poem memorialises the Qianlong Emperors visit to the Hui Mountain
Temple, a popular place frequently visited by scholars. It can be interpreted that the teapot symbolizes here a life
of easy leisure and demonstrates the Emperors desire to live a simple life of occasional reclusive retreat, a state-of-
mind pursued by all those seeking wisdom.

you believe. However, most people
enter each day not knowing what
to expect. Their day might turn out
to be a roller-coaster ride, with high
and low moments. They have no
control over who or what will upset
them or spoil their day. Should
a crisis occur, they have no idea
how to respond, least of all how to
respond appropriately. This is when
tapping can really help you to be
calm and think straight. Tapping is
not for crisis situations only; it can
be used to clear all kinds of minor
upsets as well.

of the space. What we want to avoid is that works with the architecture, space. Most common lobbies tend

80 F E N G SHUIWORLD | OCTOBER 2016 | www.fswmag.com


The next component is the
sense of Activity. When you
design a public space, you will
encounter scenarios of human
traffic congestion, especially
when it comes to lift lobbies.
Depending on the time of day and
frequency of lift stops, we may
encounter situations whereby
the lift lobbies are packed to a
level where people exiting would
collide with those entering.
This will remain one of the
hardest design problems to tackle,
as it deals with each individual
separately. What we can try to
do is to plan the space by first
Common Lobby
segregating the movement of
entry and exits. Next, we need to
to have a high ceiling which will be
serviced by a bank of lifts, with walls
usually cladded in a stone finish.
Based on this typical description, we
can already identify the three core
components of the architecture of
the space.
These being the sense of Vertical
space, the sense of Activity and the
sense of Materials.
When we look at the treatment of
vertical spaces, there is a balance of
being too high or too narrow. Some
may use the golden rule of 1.618 as
a means of proportion, so if we have
a room 10m long, we can have a
ceiling height of 6.18 m. Other ways
to control the height of a space is with
the use of a sculptural chandelier to
lower the perception of the ceiling
height, so as to prevent the space
from feeling too hollow.
Another technique to treat the
ceiling level is to create a perimeter
light throughout to break the vertical
and horizontal planes, giving a sense
of detachment of the planes.
How we treat the vertical space
will ultimately have a bearing on how
we feel within a space. Too high and
hollow and we will feel small and
insignificant. Too low and tight and
we will experience a claustrophobic
effect. Therefore, the first step in any
common space is always think of the
pedestrian, and then to design the
space in proportion to the human
body.

look at the speed and waiting times of
people moving in and out. As people
tend to exit faster than people waiting
in line, we will need to provide a
design solution in the foyer whereby
people are able to sit, mingle and
relax in comfort while waiting.
One solution would be to create
a partition between the foyer and the
lift lobby in order to break the two
activities up. By doing so, it allows
the waiting for the lift to take on a
different feeling of relaxation and not
anxiety.
And finally the use of Materials.
The choice of materials will have
a subtle impact on how we appreciate
the space. For example, the use of
stone versus timber flooring will
give a corporate feel versus a homely
feel. The use of stone cladding on When you start to look at the furnishings.
