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."
