One minute Feng Shui - 3
- Is there a hill/mountain near your house (growing or dying)?
A house is said to have good support when there is a hill or mountain behind it. This protects the house from being harmed by gusty wind or surprise attacks from an unguarded rear. It is important to note that in ancient China, wild animal attacks were normal incidents. Lacking this support is said to generate ‘unkind’ energies that are believed to have impact on the inhabitants’ health. Having the good support of a mountain or hill is defined as ‘growing’ or ‘lively’, particularly with trees.
The ancient Chinese believed the Dragon is the symbol of a mountain, and trees were hairs to protect the dragon from being sick; therefore, a good mountain will generate a ‘kind’ cosmic breath for inhabitants in the vicinity. In today’s modern context, building an artificial hill or artificial mountain at the rear will serve the purpose. Likewise, an old building is said to generate ‘unkind’ energies that radiate toward nearby inhabitants. If you do not have anything at the rear of your house, think of a nice artificial hill or artificial mountain next time you decorate your house, or simply place 8 white stones to strengthen the support elements.
Take a minute to enlighten yourself with the following observation and see if it applies to your country as well. In ancient China, warriors and heroes were mostly born in the inland areas surrounded by good mountains. In fact, even now, Buddhist monks and Taoist practitioners like to meditate in the mountains, to enhance their search for longevity and enhance their health. You might say there is nothing superstitious nor physiologically remarkable about this; it is just common sense.
- Is there an ocean/river/pond/lake near your house (passionate or insensitive)?
The second most important criteria is the element of water. Water is the essence of life, without it we cannot live for long. From ancient times to today’s contemporary world, human beings are constantly searching for cleaner water for living. Agricultural products, logistics, and transportation are part and parcel of today’s economic backbone. As described earlier, ancient heroes were born in the inner lands with good mountains. Similarly, we can conclude that wealthy businesspersons mostly came from coastal regions where most economic activities take place.
If in front of your house there is a river, pond, lake or ocean, your house will harness the ‘kind’ energies that permeate from that feature. Simply put, when other things remain constant, having such a geographical feature will enhance your wealth accumulation element. In the modern world, roads and railroads are considered to contain the water element as the traffic flow works like water flow. However, the condition of the water feature (river, pond, lake or ocean) must be ‘passionate’, meaning that the flow must not be too drastic or in a straight line. As I have mentioned earlier, mountains govern health while water governs wealth.
Next time you decorate your house, place a water fountain, artificial lake or artificial pond in front of your house, or simply place a cup of water in front of your door. This will harness the ‘kind’ energy permeating the water element and strengthen your wealth accumulation efforts. Take a minute to search for your country’s wealthiest person and find out where he or she comes from, a coastal region perhaps?
