Product Description

From the Publisher

Magic is creating ritual in your life. Feng Shui and magic go hand in hand as they both tap into the natural sources of energy in the world to help create change. So Lillian Too has brought the two together in her latest book Lillian Too's Irresistible Feng Shui Magic.

"Feng Shui is not magic. Although it feels like magic," says Lillian. "It is an ancient science - there are specific formulas involved. You can actually measure an auspicious dimension. We use the word magic to describe phenomena that we don't understand."

Feng Shui is a phenomena that many do not understand. Moving furniture in order to create a better life? Feng Shui combines geomancy, astrology, numerology and Chinese folklore to help you create your desired life. It focuses on the way that energy travels around your home or work environment. We have to increase 'sheng chi' or the positive life force in our lives and reduce 'shar chi'. This can be done through architecture, furniture placement and the use of crystals, mirrors, plants and water. Ideally we would all build our own auspicious homes to specific feng shui guidelines which would enhance our 'sheng chi', however this is impossible for most of us and so luckily there are plenty of feng shui cures that can enhance our living and work spaces.

"I used Feng Shui all through my career and it works in wonderful ways," says Lillian. In her life, she has managed to put a faltering career back on track which culminated in her becoming the Managing Director of a top bank in Hong Kong… the initial step was building a low wall in front of her home to block a drain that was washing her career energy away. She also conceived a child after cutting down a tree in front of her home that was directing 'shar chi' or negative energy and blocking her family luck.

With Feng Shui Magic, Lillian has created a prosperity-creating phenomenon which combines the use of compass formulas and auspicious symbols. She says "It is not necessarily advanced Feng Shui but it is more comprehensive, yet simpler and more exciting to practice."

The Dragon is a potent symbol in Feng Shui Magic. According to Chinese philosophy chi is the breath of the celestial green dragon and once you have learned how to harness this breath, then you have its power at your fingertips. Feng Shui is not about quick fixes - moving your sofa and creating instant wealth. Taming the dragon requires commitment and patience. This is why ritual is an important part of Feng Shui Magic. As Lillian says "The dragon is said to embody cosmic chi, so that with every tangible breath of his presence he holds out the promise of a better lifestyle, the promise of unbelievable prosperity and unimaginable happiness, and the genuine awakening of the human spirit at every level - mind, body, spirit."

In her new book you can learn how to use water in your home to create wealth, use numbers and symbols to create prosperity and good health and use crystal balls and moon energy to enhance your love life. There are also a series of space clearing techniques and meditations as Lillian says that "meditative energy and concentrated thought is what gives power to rituals and the performance of magic."

About the Author

Lillian Too has been practising feng shui for about 30 years and has shared the secrets of this ancient tradition with the world. Her 18 books have sold in excess of 3.5 million copies making bestseller lists around the globe. At the height of her banking career she was the Managing Director of one of Hong Kong’s largest banks.
Feng Shui is a direct link to Lillian’s Chinese roots and blends the traditions of geomancy, Chinese folklore, numerology and astrology together. Working with the natural energies of the world, the elements and the compass directions gives us a grasp of our connection with the universe. With Feng Shui, Lillian believes that you can work with auspicious times and places and use preventative feng shui ‘cures’ to counterbalance inauspicious times and places. Based on using compass directions and the energy of natural elements like mountains and rivers, there are lucky and unlucky places. Architects in the East, use feng shui to design auspicious buildings for good business. Hong Kong banks are famous for having their buildings created using feng shui principles to multiply their ‘chi’ beneficial energy, and negate ‘shah’ negative energy.
Until she was 21, Lillian Too had been brought up as a Catholic and educated by nuns at a convent in Penang. But she started learning kung fu and began to learn about ‘energy’. She was first introduced to feng shui when she was trying for a baby. She moved into a new house that she and her husband were having built according to feng shui principles. And after trying for a baby for 9 years, within just 4 months of moving into their new home, Lillian was pregnant. She was amazed by her first success with using feng shui and later applied feng shui techniques to her career, which brought her great success.
Lillian needed to share the gift of the ancient knowledge of feng shui with others and started writing books. Essentially feng shui is an ancient science, which Lillian has successfully translated into Western terms and now people around the world from families to hotel owners are using feng shui principles in their homes and businesses. She lives in Kuala Lumpar.

I received this book for my birthday (Jan. 1st), and I've already finished it! I've been studying feng shui for a few years now, trying different authors, and to be honest, most are missing the depth and tradition I found in this book.
Lillian Too provides the details and conveys the energetic import of the symbols and rituals she covers. This author gives you the methods for putting the "teeth" into your feng shui pratices and therefore getting the results like they do in the orient.
Some of the info she covers: How to "wake up" dragons, flying star feng shui, creating a wealth vase, how to use a model ship to bring you wealth, and how to avoid bad luck when you stir up the energies during renovating.
As I said, I've already finished it... For the first of MANY readings! Highly recommended!

Ms. Too might be the author of the highest number of Feng Shui books published, but if you're like me and have read some of her other books, you are likely to get mad at yourself for having spent money an yet another one, when you should've learnt by now that they contain almost the same information.
I've given this a three-star rating, because it does talk about some basic rituals, but they'll not do you any godd unless you're at a certain level of spiritual awareness and are aware of the fact that just flying some wish-baloons in the air will not make your wishes come true.

My third favorite feng shui book Aug. 25 2005
By J. Malnar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Loved this book cause it is not just all academic. It doesnt make me feel helplessly feng shui stupid. It explains the energetic principles of FS magic (and boy, is Magic one and the same, whether fenh shui or western wicca) and gives many examples of their use in rituals, from simple to more complicated ones, take your pick. I dont own any other LT's books, so this one was all new fresh and exciting for me.
