Trinity of Luck” and its India counterpart Vastu, make a formidable combination. A corollary to the Indian Vastu shastra, Feng Shui is its Chinese counterpart. In Feng Shui, there are three main categories which describe the type of ‘luck’ we experience in our lives. The first category is known as Tien Chai (Heaven Luck). It refers to the karma, health predispositions, astrological horoscope and family environment you were inherently born with and is determined by the cycles of time, change and polarity. The second category of luck is known as Ti Chai (Earth Luck). This type of luck is determined by our surroundings (ie home and landform) and the way in which we orientate ourselves in order to tap into the many positive or negative energy combinations within and around the earth. This type of luck can be altered when Feng Shui is correctly applied to your living and work environment. The final category of luck is known as Ren Chai (the Luck of Mankind). It refers to your personal attitude, education, managerial and financial ability, lifestyle, virtues, the choices that you make and your personal quest for knowledge. As an individual, you have full control over this type of luck, and when it is combined with Ti Chai (Earth Luck) through the correct application of Feng Shui, you increase the probability of experiencing greater harmony and contentment in key areas of your life.

The layout of a home office or business location, color choices, furnishings, electromagnetic fields (EMF) awareness, use of plants, can all have a major impact on the success and prosperity of all. The science of Vastu or Feng Shui is a tool to positively transform your life and your premises to pulsate and vibrate with energy that ushers in happiness, success and sustained prosperity.

Feng Shui also takes into account the creative aspects of poetry, music, painting, rhythm and geometry when designing a vibrant structure, be it a home or work place. Based on mathematical formulas and compass directions the science studies the influence of the flow of chi or energy through your building and other aspects of your environment.

Your first impressions as you enter a home, work spaces and rooms are very important, what you feel in a place constitutes the quality of the energy existing there. By crossing a threshold you enter a new environment or another world.

To adapt Feng Shui corrections in a home or office, it primarily calls for understanding the orientations of the property, main door positions, layout, furniture and decor. For bedrooms it is the positioning of beds.  The Feng Shui commanding position is the area furtherest from the door and diagonally from the door, but not in line with the door. In other words, you want to be able to see the door while in bed, but not be aligned with the door.  For offices, the seating positions of key personnel, the reception desk and entry points are vital. For shared spaces or cubicles, if you have your back to the door, be sure to find a way to see the reflection of the office entrance, meaning to have a view of what is going on behind your back. You can do that with any strategically placed office related-object made from shiny metal.

We mirror our environments and it is a known fact that like attracts like and vibrates in harmony. The mystical actually influences the practical hence adapting appropriate Feng Shui enhancers and cures in the specific sectors of a building can truly bring in abundance.

Some of the general guidelines to tap into good vibes would be:

•To enhance wealth luck focus on your southeast corner. The chi in this area is especially strong for building fortunes, Keep the sector clean and clutter free.
•A bamboo plant near your front door will attract goodness within, part of that goodness being financial security.

•Pyrite, the “sun mineral”, is also considered to attract the energy of wealth and abundance. Feng Shui-wise, it is especially good in the southeast.

Golden Dragon turtle symbolizes a long and prosperous life. It is also said to attract prosperity into your business and improve relationships with those around you. Placing a golden dragon turtle in the southeast corner of an office or business facing toward the door is said to invite prosperity.

Feng Shui recognizes that everything vibrates and focuses on encouraging harmony among the various vibrations by creating alignment. It is believed in Feng Shui that abundance has a particular vibration, a signature energy field, hence when our building resonates in harmony it leads to both more flow and more energy between occupants and their desires.
