To do well in life, one has to understand how people operate. Even in financial markets, buyers and sellers are made up of different sorts of people, all experiencing different emotions at the same time.
The study of Feng Shui can be traced back to the ancient Chinese philosophy. History has it that Feng Shui has been practised since the Tang Dynasty (618 – 907) and had previously been used by the Chinese Imperial Family.

In classical Feng Shui, the aspect of time is just as crucial as the quality of your external land formations. 'Time' in Feng Shui can be divided into long-term and short-term, and usually the idea of 'long' can span across a few generations! To achieve this kind of long-lasting positive Feng Shui effects, however, would require locating a spot with superior mountain and water formations.
Confidence alone does not make a women attractive.
One of the questions I am most frequently asked is what objects I have in my office or home. Bemused expressions follow when I reply that I have some sci-fi figures (purely because I like them and they give me pleasure) but apart from that, there is nothing else. I cannot repeat often enough that classical Feng Shui isn't about the placement of objects.
You'll be able to derive the help of some helpful people this month, and as a result, your work progress will be smooth. You may enjoy some good luck in making extra cash. However, while you're able to save a little, it will not be substantial enough at this point as the outlook is not favourable enough for you to save a lot this month.

Did you know that the colour of soil can tell us a lot about a particular land in Classical Feng Shui? Dig a few feet into the ground past the top soil and observe the colour as well as quality of the soil. A good land is normally soft and loamy. That is a sign that the land is filled with positive Qi. On the other hand, if the soil consists mostly of rocks and pebbles, then that land does not circulate positive Qi. Why is that so?
The idea behind having a bedroom with optimal Feng Shui is fairly simple. Instead of active Yang, we need to consider the receptive Yin. Bedrooms should be slightly more Yin than Yang. Why is that so? This is because wealth pursuits (Yang) require activity and creative power, whereas health and longevity (Yin) rely on stability and recuperation. Hence, the condition of your main door, a Yang feature, governs your wealth aspects. The condition of your bedroom, a Yin feature, governs health and relationships.
In Feng Shui, the goal is to always be in the path of positive Qi to benefit from it. Aside from that, it is also important to be positioned away from negative Qi sources, also known as 'Sha Qi' (Killing Qi). In the traditional and rural setting, rocky and patchy mountains are considered sources of aggressive, non-sentimental Qi. A narrow gap formed in between two mountains or hills is also a Sha Qi, called a 'Wind Gap'. This compressed wind flows-in in an aggressive and forced manner, and therefore it is harmful. As usual, long, straight rivers are also negative features, especially when the water is fast-moving. As the saying goes, 'straight water is merciless'.
Here is a compilation of common Feng Shui misconceptions that has been prevalent over the past few years, ranging from superstitions to applying some common sense.
Many can imagine by now that the natural force of the land, Qi, travels from higher ground (mountains and hills) and gathers at lower ground (natural water ways). This is the horizontal flow of Qi, and we know that, for example, 'first come is first served'. The nearer houses around the lake would have the chance to receive the energy storage first. Of course, basic rules apply. The water has to be in the right location relative to the house, and there has to be a good 'Bright Hall' for the house.
The rule of classical Feng Shui when purchasing a property is to look for two natural features around the property - mountain and/or water. In the study of land formations, mountains represent the Yin (unmoving) component of the Earth, whereas water (rivers, lakes) is the Yang (active) component. Having both in the vicinity of your property would be ideal.
