Don't know,

We had one come in at least 4 times for our brand new office. Guess what! Water blessing! Had the entire office under 4 inches of water on our grand opening when we arrived at 7 am in the morning with the opening due to start at 11 am! Worse part about it was the fact that we are on the 4th floor! So much for Feng Shui! :roll:

The irony with feng shui and fortune-telling is that by the time you have enough wisdom and discernment to tell the genuine from the quacks, you won't need their help anyway!

Grab one of Lillian Too's feng shui books in any bookstore. Some of the advice makes a lot of sense logically. Not sure about the pa kua and positioning etc though. The feng shui master industry is unregulated and there are many quacks out there, so be careful.

Fortune telling is even worse, and it's all psychological and a self-fulfilling prophecy anyway. A genuine fortune teller can only say what your future MAY be, recognising that you can still change it. Anyone who says your fate is pre-determined and you can't change it is a quack. My version of fortune-telling: Decide what future you want and then go out there and work your butt off creating it, and it will happen.

Could this be an example of the Law of Attraction in action ? ? ?

I don't really agree with u, my friend had gone to china to learn feng shui and what he told me that he can even eliminate the termite as this also belongs to feng shui, but he also told me that there is not much he can do in singapore hdb block unless the private house that u can really alter the door or gate. That is why he always go indonesia to see the feng shui. Once he went to malaysia, after he look at the house, he can even tell that there is one person will be born deaf ( actully the grandson of the owner ) and it is show in the feng shui that he learn.

Just had a chat with a friend who lives in a landed property on hilly part of Singapore. At the advice of a feng shui 'master' she decided to build her double storey bungalow with her first floor lower than her gate, with a downward incline for her car to drive in and out of the verandah. This is so that her "luck and prosperity would flow in".

Each time it rains, it does flow in. Her first floor gets flooded! Not a huge flood, but sufficient to play with Ugg boots (probably few centimetres of water).

Feng shui :roll:

Yeah noticing hearing aids and batteries lying around is the give-away I suppose.

Interesting... SMS responds to a 7 year old post and everyone else chimes right in.

Must be Feng Shui.
