Hello, everyone! It’s Safrina, as usual. I’m just gonna give it a few minutes so people can join me, hopefully, but i wanted to do a scope. And as per my headline, there are many different types of prosperity. And yeah, I wanted to talk about this topic because I got a really interesting question on my YouTube channel and he gave me a…
Hello, welcome! And so this question I got from my YouTube channel and the question was, “When you’re trying to activate your money corners in Feng Shui and again, let me reiterate for those of you who have not heard me say this. In Classical Feng Shui, you actually have up to three money corners. Not just one, okay?
Fast food Feng Shui is going to tell you “you only have one,” but based on Classical Feng Shui, there’s actually three and even certain periods and certain phasing could have a fourth — not as strong — but
a fourth money corner as well. So the question was, if you are not working and you’re activating for money, then how does that work? So his example was, okay, let’s say my aunt or my mom doesn’t work or is retired or whatever, how does it make sense to activate for money? Well, my answer to him was that you still activate for money but then the financial prosperity will come in other forms.
So let’s say, if you are retired or you’re a housewife or whatever, if you activate your money corners with
Feng Shui, then other opportunities will come, right? It could be, let’s say, you’re going on your travels.
Let’s say you’re embarking on a 10-country travel and whatever, but you happen to have friends in all those 10 countries and they all asked you to stay with them while you’re in town. And this is actually what’s happened to my husband’s aunt who just came to visit as in Toronto and then I think she’s left to the States and going to the UK and Paris and Turkey.
I’m not sure, but in almost every country that she’s traveling to and — she’s in her seventies — in every country that she’s traveling to, she stays with friends or family. And that is prosperity because she gets to save a lot of money. Like she doesn’t have to pay for hotel lets say, you’re activating for money and you go out, you’re meeting with friends and family and somehow or other people always pay for you.
Not that you’re expecting them to pay for you, but they happily pay for your meal. Bring you out to dinner, watch movies and stuff like that. Or even if someone gives you gift cards. That is a form of prosperity as well, so when you activate your money corner, you don’t just activate for monetary results.
You also have the potential to be activating non-monetary stuff. So, people giving you things or giving you furniture or things like that. Or even if you’re living with family. So you’re living rent-free and mortgage-free, that is activating for prosperity as well.
So those of you guys who are watching me live right now, what do you think about this? What do you think about me saying that there are many different forms of prosperity? And I do believe that money isn’t the only thing that’s important.
You also want good relationships; you also want great health. So, for those of you who are watching me
live or watching the replay, this is what I want you to take away in that be open to the universe’s idea that the definition of prosperity is so vast. So vast. And when I do Chinese astrology for some of my clients, when I see wealth in their birth chart and they’re like, “No, you know, it’s not really like money didn’t actually come, but another really good example about prosperity is also connections.
Let’s say, you come in contact with someone who has a really vast network. And through that person, you get clients and referrals and whatever either career referrals or business referrals, that’s also another form of non-monetary prosperity as well. So, think outside the money box and hopefully I’m not going to cut off because it’s telling me that my connection internet connection is weak.
So, I don’t want you to think that by activating the money corner that it’s only cold hard cash that you’ll be
activating you definitely be able to activate for other stuff as well. And I also want to have you keep your eyes out for those kinds of opportunities because like I don’t want you to activate for your money and then
you’re just sitting there waiting for the monetary stuff to come in and yet you miss out on the non-monetary thing, which can also make quite a big bit of an impact in your life. So, that’s pretty much what I wanted to remind you of, okay? So for those of you guys whether you’ve worked with me one-on-one or done my group programs and stuff like that, remember to always open your eyes to how the universe is giving you abundance and prosperity in more ways than one.
And I have a question for you guys here — for those of you who went to my website ( FengShuiAndProsper.com), some of you may not know that I had a 12-week online program. It’s an online group program where I actually go through everyone’s layouts and we talked about how to activate the important areas in the home. I do have a waiting list for that although because of my schedule right now, I don’t think I will be offering the 12-week group program anytime soon, however spirit or the universe spoke to me last night, like midnight. I was about to go to sleep and an idea came to me…
Okay, I’m back.
Neth, you’re asking me how to activate the money corner?
Okay, I wish I could give you a quick answer, but it really is figure out what period are you based on the year
that you moved into your home, so it’s likely period seven or period eight. If you moved in between 1998-2000 for your period seven.
If you moved into your home between 2004 until now, you’re period 8.
So, that’s one. Second is you need to know what is you’re facing. So you need to take a compass; you go to
the facing of your building or your home and you take a compass reading. And you write that down. And then, based on the period and the facing of your home then based on Flying Star Feng Shui, then you can figure out your three money corners. And just before I got a little bit cut off earlier, this is what I wanted to run past you guys in that that’s what I taught my students during the 12-week program in that how to find the three money corners as well as how to activate them.
But again, because of my schedule, I looked at my schedule I don’t think i’ll be offering than 12 weeks because it’s a lot. It’s a big chunk of time. And it’s weekly group calls, which I don’t think I can commit to right now, but would you be interested in a self-study four-week program?
So it’s a digital program.
It’s a self-study meaning you don’t really have access to me, but you have videos, you have handouts.
And the videos would go through like explain them. I think I do my explanations in the video quite succinctly.
So, the four-week home study digital program will go through just like what Neth is asking how to (1) find your three money corners, (2) how to activate those money corners and if you have areas that are not good for finances, how do you actually remedy them? But this is self-study.
I still haven’t figured out how much I’m going to price it. It will be, you know, I’m not gonna price it like higher
because you don’t have access to me. So that’s the only thing because right now I am a little bit busy. I am actually stepping away from one-on-one consultations as well simply because i don’t really have the
bandwidth for that. I’m working with more corporate clients at the moment, as well as my six-month Stand Out and Prosper Group Program, which is for spiritual entrepreneurs who want to use Feng Shui, marketing and mindset to really boost their business. So, between all that, I’m not able to offer the 12-week group program anymore.
For what I call the Wealth Qi Program, so the message that I got from spirit or the universe last night was that, maybe make like a smaller course — a four-week course where we only talked about how to activate for money in Feng Shui. I’m not gonna touch on health or relationship because again that we that makes it a really big program, which you know, as a home study, might be a little bit too overwhelming. But would you be — for those of you guys watching me right now, tell me right now — would you be interested in this?
Again, what it encompasses is you get handouts, you get PDFs that you can print out. You get videos from me and it’s self-study, so every week, you’ll get new modules coming out emailed to you or you can access it on a special website. And we figure out your three wealth corners, how to activate it, how to remedy your
financially weak corners and the final module is actually how to do water placements which I know a lot of you guys want to know about. And a bonus module about where to put your money bowl.
I know you guys heard about money vase or wealth vase. We actually don’t do well vases but there is a money bowl and that is based on the year that you’re born. So, those are the things that I’m thinking of.
I haven’t actually put it together, but if you guys are — I’m not seeing any feedback here, so I guess I shouldn’t do it? No one is commenting on the video whether or not they would be interested in it, so maybe I shouldn’t offer it, but that’s just one way for me to be able to get the right information out there to you guys.
This obviously is good for people who are good self-paced learners, okay?
If you need a lot of hand-holding, then maybe this is not the best way to do it. Maybe a one-hour consult with me might be the best one for you, so I’m just kind of playing around with options here because like I said I am stepping away from one-on-one consultations. I’m not pushing it as hard anymore especially full consultations because that one takes hours from me, which I don’t have.
I don’t mind doing the 1-hour consultations. I can fit them into my schedule pretty easily, but the full
consultations — it’s because I give so much information to my clients. The report takes many hours for me to
finish and I looked through everything. So I am trying to step off from full consultations for residential. I’m only doing that for businesses and corporations right now, but there for residential, you still have the option of doing the one-hour consultation with me, which I’m still taking on. So, if either that a one-hour consultation with me for you residential guys or take this self-study meaning no access to me.
But I will try to explain everything as clearly as possible; and you guys, you figure it out as best as you
can and I’m going to try. Again, this is all kind of something that I’m throwing out there but maybe if you getthat self-study program, you might have access to my monthly Q&A calls where you can actually ask me questions but the Q&A calls are kind of fluid as well it happens when I have time in my schedule. So, that’s the thing, right? I want to support as many people as possible, but I also need to make sure that I have time for my family and I have time to take care of myself because I only have 4 hours sleep last night, you guys, between the work that I’m doing for my two businesses and other stuff. I only have 4 hours of sleep and I haven’t napped so I’m a little bit rundown. And I need to make sure that I’m not so run down that I fall ill. So, I want to be able to support as many people as possible, but at the same time, honor me, my time, my value and my expertise. And there’s a lot more things that I’m gonna live stream about that just came to the fore. And the next one I’m going to title it, “I’m Gonna Save You $800,” so maybe I’ll do that tomorrow.
So, watch out for that title because that’s a very interesting one.
Anyway, it’s at 15 minutes right now. I’m not going to take out too much of your time, but let me know under this video whether or not you would be interested in a self-paced four-week program to activate money in your home.
Okay? Let me know. If I don’t get a lot of yeses on this, then I’m just going to forget it because I don’t want to spend too much time on something that people don’t want. So, you guys have a great day! It’s Friday! I don’t know if i’m going to do a lot of hard core work for the rest of this afternoon before I pick up my daughter,
but I might need to because it’s been a long night of working. Anyway, you guys, thanks for watching!
Either you watched me live or watch my replay. Take care! Looking forward to hear your feedback!
Darting my eyes a little bit because I am looking at you guys here at Periscope as well as my other webcam and we’re
doing a Google Hangout as well. So, for those of you guys who are not familiar with me, I am Safrina Kadri and I am a Classical Feng Shui consultant and I helped my client’s achieve peak financial flow in their life as well as in their business.. Mitch, you say you’re still in the garage? So you’re like just coming out of your car, getting home?
Well, I’m glad that I could be the last person you speak to before you go to bed.
It sounds like so — Thank you, it’s been awhile since I’ve seen you on my scope. It’s been awhile since I’ve been on a scope, but I just went to Vegas a few days ago and I got back to Toronto and that was for a business. I guess it’s a mastermind with a whole bunch of other high-level, like serious in terms of what they want to do and what they want to achieve in their life and in their business. And I’m coming home still kind of in a high, but with a lot of information that I want to implement in my business.
And it gave me the prompts, I guess I should say, to do this scope and the title is “How Do You Gain a Competitive Advantage in Business and also in Life” and it got me to — Thank you for the hearts, everyone! I’m gonna be asking for more hearts if you like what or if you are resonating with what i’m talking about. So, it got me to thinking, obviously, as a business owner, as an
entrepreneur, “How do I gain competitive advantage not only among other Feng Shui consultants but as a business, as a whole?” And I’ve seen other patterns in my life where I realized in situations where I got the best outcome possible is when I was looking for an angle that made me a little bit different from other people. And I would love for you guys to share with me
how you feel in what area in life have you gained that competitive advantage, and what kind of results that gave you. So, why do we need that competitive advantage? Because there are billions and billions of people in this world; and whether you own a business or whether you’ve worked for someone else, success really depends on how you stand out. And how do you do that where in a sea of other people doing very similar things that you do, either on your career path or in your business,
other people who do the same products or the same services that you do? How do you put yourself forth in that — Reck5767, not a problem! Hopefully you will be right back.
We have quite a few viewers on Hangout as well. So, that’s great.
Sorry, lost my train of thought there. Yes, so in terms of gaining competitive advantage, visibility is key.
Now, a lot of people think — because I’ve been a Feng Shui consultant — people think that — And by the way, for those of you
guys who are not familiar with Feng Shui, I’ll give you a nutshell in terms of what it is. So, Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese wisdom that where we can calculate what kind of energy is in a space. Is it a prosperous energy? Maybe that space even has an energy that’s not so prosperous? Sometimes, when you hear people — let’s say they move into a new house; and they’re like, “I don’t know man, ever since we moved into our house, things just started falling apart. My husband and I — we started arguing more, maybe we started getting sick a little bit more, maybe someone lost their job, or maybe business wasn’t doing good — that usually means that the space that they are in, doesn’t have abundant prosperous space to help them in terms of getting better
luck, in health, in relationships and in business or career. So, Feng Shui is an ancient study where we can actually calculate what’s going on space-wise. You can call me the “space whisperer” if you want. And if there are negative energies anywhere, with Feng Shui, we can remedy it. And on the flip side, if there’s auspicious positive energy, then with Feng Shui, you can
activate that a little bit more.
So, people think just because I’m a Feng Shui consultant, then things that are gonna be “hunkydory” a hundred percent of a time. I wish that was the case, but I’m gonna let you down a little bit that Feng Shui is not magic. It’s not voodoo.
It’s helping me working with the energy of my space so that I do get better opportunities coming around….
So, Li Linn on YouTube! Hey, Li Linn! You guys watching the Google Hangout, you can comment, by the way. I’m going to see that as well.
So, with me, even in my 6-7 years as a business consultant — actually, almost 8 years now as a Feng Shui consultant.
I still need to think like an entrepreneur, not just as a Feng Shui consultant. I still need to think in terms of how do I make — Hi, Studio31 Salon! Thanks for joining — how do I make my consulting business stand out? Because I did build it part-time for 6 years, but when I want full time 2 years ago, like this is not a hobby business anymore.
I need to be seriously focused on how do I make my business stand out; because if you don’t stand out, especially in business, you guys; if you don’t stand out, you will stay as the best kept secret in the world for your industry. And that’s not where you want to be because if you’re a secret, your clients are not gonna be able to find you and how are they going to give you money in exchange for your product or service if they can’t find you? So, my competitive advantage is I learned about social media especially Facebook and I learned about video marketing. And if you guys are in business and you’re not doing video be it Periscope or webinars or even even like pre-taped videos (it doesn’t have to be livestreaming), you are leaving a lot of money on the table because I would say, at this point, probably it’s just my data, but from the other entrepreneurs or business owners that I’ve been talking to, it seems like it’s still almost 90% of business owners are not on video as yet.
So, if you want to gain that competitive advantage, that’s what you need to do.
Even in, let’s say, dating. What’s your competitive advantage? For me — I can only talk about me — so, my husband and I – we’ve been together for 14 years. However, prior to us meeting, I was so sick and tired of the dating scene.
My average was four first dates a week. So, it wasn’t from the lack of putting myself out there. I was definitely out there.
My competitive advantage and taking dating into almost like a business metaphor is that I made sure that my package was properly marketed in front of the right audience so that what I am prepared to offer is what my audience wants. So, I had a personal profile on Yahoo Personals (I don’t think they’re around anymore. This is 14-15 years ago). Yahoo Personals and my bio — again, taking it as a business analogy. It’s almost like a sales page.
I had a nice photo and my title pretty much was”Am one who can party on a Saturday night and bake muffins on a Sunday morning.” I have to admit, that headline gained a lot of interest but that really who I was.
I thought I was about 22 at that time. Anyway, I was 22 at that time so I can party up a storm. University student, but at the same time I can be the homie, you know, lounging-on-the-couch kind of girl as well. So, I wanted someone who was prepared for that. So, then my husband saw my profile. We had our first date mid-November 2002, We got married 10 months after our first
date and we’re still married. Because he saw my ad, he saw my bio, and that was the competitive advantage in terms of him.
He wanted also someone who had that combination of fun and yet — not seriousness — but fun and stability at the same time.
He loves my cooking, by the way. I think I spoiled him for other women. But that was my competitive advantage in dating.
And years ago, when I was still building my consulting business part-time, I was not really happy in my job. It was great; it paid the bills. How many of us know that? It paid the bills, we’re comfortable, we don’t wanna rock the boat but you know what I was dragging myself out of bed every morning and it was not a good feeling. I wasn’t too ready to take my Feng Shui business full time as yet. So, what I did was I started putting my fillers out there. So my competitive advantage was, in terms of as a career person, I researched the heck out of the companies that I wanted to apply to. I looked at their company website, their videos if they have it. Like I really turned it inside-out and I narrowed it down to 5 companies.
And what’s my competitive advantage in this point?
I called each of those 5 companies, I asked for the hiring manager for these positions. Some of them were like, “Oh, just email it to me.” I’m like, “Yes, I will email but I would still like to know the hiring manager’s name. Now, why do I need this? That’s when I took the name, I put it on an envelope, I printed my resume out in color (because the way I did my resume was a little bit different; black and white wasn’t good enough for me), I put some — it’s you know like how I highlighted my name in
a different color — let’s say, orange or whatever.
And the companies that I used to work for and also the company that I was working for presently — I had their logo on one side of the page and I had like the quotes of clients raving about me on that page.
If you guys wanna know the way to do this resume, you look up this book called Guerilla Job Hunting 2.0, I think. I think that’s the title.
But, anyway; so I emailed the resume but I also mailed it out. I FedEx-ed it. All these five companies — I dropped about
$20 each to FedEx my resume. And out of the five resumes, I got three call backs. Out of the three, two gave me a second interview. Both of them gave me job offers.
And this was at a point where people were finding it hard to find work. And I was actually in a position where I could
choose which companies I want to go to.
And I have to admit, I think, about maybe a year — Oh, so when I did the first interview with one of the companies, the hiring manager was like, “You know what? The office was a buzz when your resume came in FedEx-ed. Because you know why? Once they received it and they signed for it (through their tracking number), I can actually find out that it’s there. And I
actually did call to confirm that it’s there.
That’s my competitive advantage as a career person. That was how I stood out compared to other people.
And about a year or so later, we bumped into each other again and the hiring manager’s wife actually got let go and he was mentioning to her my tactic or the tactic that I learned from that book.
And he said, “You know what? You should try this because it definitely puts your name on top of all the other candidates. So, in business, in life, in career — whatever it is that you want to do, main question is: how do you stand out? Because really, if you’re missing this one key, in my opinion, you’re just allowing yourself to swim against the current needlessly.
Just be a little bit smart in terms of your strategy.
And any effort that you put in, I guarantee you, will come back many times more. It does take a little bit more time to gain that “competitive advantage,” but once the foundation is there, then you are set.
Okay? Anyway, that is my scope. I wanted to keep it quick, but hopefully that inspires you guys to really think about what it is that you can do different from the others in life, in your relationships, in your health, in your career?
The same advice can be applicable to any area in our lives.
So, thank you so much for watching, you guys. And, again, if I am new to you, please subscribe to me either on YouTube — Hey, Mitch. You’re still here! Thanks so much! I think you need to go back to bed.
It’s probably what, 6-5:30 AM in Philippines now?
I’ll see you in my next scope. Hopefully, I’ll try to do it a little bit earlier. If you haven’t subscribed to me on YouTube (for
those of you who are watching me on Google Hangout), please do so.
And — 5:10 AM in the Philippines. Thank you so much! And if you’re not yet following me either on Periscope or Twitter, I will be — Studio32 Salon, are you Ellen? I’m not sure. Ellen or is that Nikki?
Let me know who you are, but thank you.
Yeah, so, I am really pumped. I will —- Oh, Nicole. Hey Nikki! How’s it going?
Yeah, so, for my next few scopes, I will be putting a little bit more attention in terms of how you combine Feng Shui, metaphysics or spiritual tools and mindset and hardcore methodologies in building your life especially your business.
So, hopefully this resonated with you guys.
Thank you so much for the hearts! And I think I hear my daughter stirring right now in her room, so I need to go get her. I do
have a four-year old. If you guys don’t see the baby swing right behind me that I was trying to cover with my body.
Anyway, thank you so much for your time! Hopefully, we’ll reconnect again in my next Hangout or in my next scope. And you guys have a wonderful day ahead! 🙂
Hi everyone, it’s Safrina Kadri from FengShuiAndProsper.com. I am the principal Feng Shui consultant and of course
founder of FengShuiAndProsper.com.
And I wanted to do another quick simulcast. If you see my eyes darting around, it’s because I have two cameras that I’m concentrating on. I’m doing a periscope again as well as a Google hangout. So again, a simulcast. I’m a mommy, I’m a multitasker so I’m gonna
I try to do as much eye contact as possible between the two cameras. Anyway, I’m doing this quick Google
hangout and a quick scope about the different schools of Feng Shui.
Now, some of you guys who — if I’m not new to you, you probably know that I have an event coming up next Sunday where I talk about Feng Shui 2016 and I’ll talk specifically about Flying Star Feng Shui and how that will impact the spaces that you live in. And I got an email that came in and asked me why do I need to learn about Flying Star Feng Shui?
Of all the Feng Shui schools out there, why is Flying Star the one that I need to focus on compared to the other Feng Shui information out
there? So, this is why I’m doing this quick scope slash Google hangout to quickly address this. Now, some of you may have heard me say
this before — there are classical schools of Feng Shui meaning they have techniques and formulas and calculations that are rooted in how
Feng Shui was done in olden China hundreds and thousands of years ago. Right? Those are obviously very involved — you need a lot of information and like I said formulas and calculations. So, you actually need a lot of knowledge in order to properly do your Feng Shui placements. Obviously, you want to get results, right? And those are classical feng shui. Flying Star Feng Shui is part of that where we don’t just look at the space — not just the internal space, not just what’s within your four walls we also take a look at the external environment and Flying Star specifically actually take in the time dimension even. So, even if you “Feng Shui-ed” your place ten years ago, based on Flying Star Feng Shui, you still need to update your placements at the very least, annually. Because even science tells us that energy is constantly changing. It’s never stagnant. So, how is it logical for us to do Feng Shui placements? Do it one time and forget it. It’s not like a slow cooker. You don’t place it and walk away. You have to constantly refresh that. For whoever is watching me right now on Google hangout as well as on Periscope, I’m sorry I didn’t see the names pop up but thank you so much for joining me. Where was I? Lost my train of thought.
Pretty much, Flying Star Feng Shui is under the classical Feng Shui banner. There’s a few other schools as well, but Flying Star is the main one that I practice. Hi Arreza, I saw you follow me yesterday. Thank you so much for that. Great to see you again.
And then, since the 40’s or even the 60’s (1960’s), there seems to be more information coming out. It is great that it’s popularizing Feng Shui, but at the same time, what saddens us (Classical Feng Shui enthusiasts) is that it actually waters down..
Hi Carmelita, thanks for following me on Periscope..a lot of watered down information about Feng Shui. And that unfortunately has gained a lot of traction especially in terms of Feng Shui enthusiasts now. If you look at books, if you look at online, if you google forums or whatever, a lot of the information is actually what I call “fast food” Feng Shui. Some of you have heard me say this before, it’s very apt because you go to a fast food joint; you order a burger meal or whatever; and you think you’re feeding your body with food, but it’s not food. Same thing with this “fastfood” Feng Shui, right? It makes you think you’re doing Feng Shui, but it’s not. You know, the tip of how you know if it’s a fastfood Feng Shui if it says you only have one money corner it’s in the southeast. You only have one love corner it’s in
the southwest — that is a huge tip off or if there’s like a one career corner, one fame and recognition, one “mentorship” corner — those are all fast food.
They’re not how it was done in the olden times. And you really want to stick to the original version, you guys. Especially where fastfood is concerned. Yeah, I love that. I think the term “fastfood Feng Shui,” I may need to trademark that. I don’t know, I’m not even sure if I’m the first one to come up with it but I think I think it’s really really apt. So, going back to the email that I received earlier today in terms of why do any Feng Shui enthusiast need to study Flying Star? It’s obviously up to you, but if you want to go back to how the grandmasters did it before, Flying Star Feng Shui is definitely the school that you want to spend a little bit more time in. And in terms of doing another shameless plug on my Feng Shui 2016 event that’s happening next Sunday. Not tomorrow, but next Sunday. The difference is that.. Oh, another question was,”Why do I need to attend this Feng Shui 2016 event?” A very good question. Because, again, if you go into books, if you go online, there’s a lot of websites or books that talk about what are the changes for the year of the monkey, what are the changes in even in terms of Flying Star Feng Shui, how the annual energy changes and they talk about placements.
The difference in my event is that we drill down to more information. So, your placements are even more unique to your space. So, even prior to the event, I will be sending out videos guiding you through how to determine if what period your home is. Again, those who have started reading on Classical Feng Shui, you know that every space has a Feng Shui period. Period 1 til period 9. I’m only concentrating on period 7 and period 8 homes because that’s where the bulk of us live in. Meaning you’ve moved into your space since 1984 or since 2004 — thereby, your space is period 7 or period 8. So, I will actually drill down. I’ll go through with you what is the annual energetic changes for 2016 but what does it mean for period 7 homes?
What does it mean for period 8 homes? And even what does it mean if your home is facing west? If it’s facing east? Not even just that, 24 mountains. Every direction is divided into three. We’re not just looking at East, we’re looking at East 1, East 2, East 3. How each of these 24 mountains we call which takes up 15 degrees on the compass depending on what direction, what fifteen degrees your home is facing, it will have a different experience in 2016. So, that is the additional level that my event is giving you that you will be hard-pressed to find in books and online. Unless of course you get an actual private consultation or if you’ve joined my 12-week program which I talk, you know, I go through everyone’s layout and I go through everything.
Some of my students are actually on these scopes or on Hangout. So, they know what I’m talking about. So, really, the event — it’s a 4-hour event, but we drill down to the nitty-gritty of stuff, you guys. And even if you have questions, I’m also opening up the chance for people
to be asking me questions. So, if you wanna know not just what’s the energy for 2016, if your question is what is the energy in 2016 and how does that affect my period 7 or period 8 home facing, let’s say, Northwest 1? And I will go through all that because not one placement is good for everyone. Even if we’re updating it for 2016, if I say you need to place just like for 2015 where generally everyone needs to place red elements in the center of the space — that is not true for every home.
And if you don’t drill down to the nitty-gritty, then you’re likely to do more harm than good. And that is my problem with fastfood Feng Shui and that they put a lot of blanket recommendation. You guys, your space is as unique as you’re thumbprint. You cannot expect one advice that is to be applicable to everyone. There are always exceptions to the rule and that is why I’m doing this event. So, that is my rant. First is: why do you need to learn Flying Star Feng Shui as opposed to other schools of Feng Shui is because it is the Classical way of doing it and it also updates the energy to the changes of time which is something that’s very very important for people to follow.
And then the second is I know Classical Feng Shui takes a lot of information just like, you know, what i’m saying. You need to figure out what’s your period, you need to figure out what facing your home or your building is.. You need to do that even before you do any placements, just like if you’re sick and you go to a doctor, the doctor needs to run a whole battery of tests before they can rule you out (so the doctor) can diagnose you and then give you a treatment protocol — that’s Classical Feng Shui.
And that is.. again, there’s more work, there’s more details that is needed. We’re really putting your space under a microscope; we’re really learning your layout in and out before we even give any form of placement advice. So, that is what I do and I have been doing that professionally for the past few years. I see results in my own life, my clients see results when placements are done properly. So, if you’ve been following Feng Shui, either weeks, months or years and your results are hit and miss, you’re probably not seeing a little bit of results from my experience.
You’re very likely doing fastfood Feng Shui and you definitely want to move away from that. I’m not saying that my products or services or events are the only solutions out there. There’s definitely other teachers, other courses out there that talk about Classical Feng Shui. Whatever it is. If you want to spend more money or more time learning Feng Shui, you want to make sure that you’re following the right school. So that is all.
I’m wanting to share my newborn daughter. She’s just a month old right now; she’s over on a high chair right off the side and I can see her moving about. I might need to start tending to her pretty soon.
So, thank you so much for your time in joining me on this quick scope and Hangout. And if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at Safrina@FengShuiAndProsper.com.
I didn’t write that down, but I did write something else down for those of you guys who actually want to join me on my Feng Shui 2016 event, I would love to see you guys there. If you can see it, it’s fengshui2016.instapage.com. I’m gonna try to fit it into my iphone screen here.
It’s four hours. Well, we might take 10-15 minutes for a washroom break. It’s four hours online. If you can watch YouTube, then you can definitely watch the event. It’s very easily accessible.
Once you register on that instapage form, then I will be sending out a link leading up to Sunday, as well as the “pre-event” homework for you to make sure that you have the right information to absorb as much as you can on Sunday. It’s gonna be jampacked, like I said. I do aim to over deliver. You can ask me questions. I will be making it interactive. Ask questions and you can type in your questions and I can answer you.
So, that’s all I want to share for today. If there are any other Feng Shui topics that you want me to cover, feel free to email it to me. Give me inspiration for my daily scopes. And thanks so much for your time. Thank you so much for following me and I I’ll see you guys on the next one. Take care.
For those who follow the classical feng shui school of flying star feng shui, November 2015 is a month to be wary of as the most afflicted energy ‘sits’ in the centre this month. Just imagine if your heart is weak – then your whole body will be weak right? THAT is what’s happening in all spaces this month – the heart of your space will be negatively affected therefore increasing the chances of loss, illness, mishaps and suffering. This is a video you don’t want to miss as I will be giving you easy tips on how you can address these malevolent energies!
Do not, I repeat, DO NOT do major digging / renovation in the Southwest, West and Northeast this year. If you have your yard here and do minor weeding it is fine, but no chopping / digging up of bushes / trees, and of course no renovations. You think it’s hard to follow annual feng shui advice? Would you rather to go ahead with your yardwork / reno plan and risk something bad happening as a result?
Here’s a comment I just got from my Youtube Channel:
“Last week, my entire back yard (was dug up for replacing the grass and a tree was dug up and relocated, which the tree has now died). My back yard faces the SW and W (total opposite of my front door). My spouse lost her job a few days after this digging. Any remedies?”
The remedy would be to activate all three of your wealth corners, make sure your bed positioning is good as well as kitchen is as strong as possible. In other words, make sure your feng shui at home is at its optimum as much as possible to help his wife find another job as soon as possible.
But in all honest truth, prevention is better than cure. Now in all fairness he may not have known that digging in the West and Southwest is absolutely forbidden this year ( the West due to the Five Yellow affliction and the Southwest due to the Grand Duke affliction ).
Only time you should keep your reno work is if you’ve consulted a properly-trained CLASSICAL feng shui consultant and made sure you have remedies in place BEFORE you do the reno work.
I have seen all sorts of loss as a result of working on afflicted directions. So here’s the reminder again, DO NOT do any reno / digging / knocking in the Northeast, Southwest and West in 2015!
Today I’m coming to you with a quick video and I want to talk about Feng Shui and selling real estate. If you have your home or your
commercial real estate on the market right now but you’re not having a lot of response, then you definitely want to take a look at the feng shui of the space.
Now, if you follow me for a while, you know proper feng shui there’s a lot of nitty gritty details in terms of the – I’m not all about those
“fast food” feng shui and unfortunately, I’m not one of those consultants who would give general ideas that may or may not work for your particular listing.
And in fact, those generalized ideas might actually do more harm rather than good but what I would suggest is if your listing is something that has been languishing in the market for a while you wanna take a look at your front door – especially for residential – your front door, your kitchen, as well as the bedrooms. And you (might) wanna bring in a a classically trained – preferably in Flying Star Feng Shui consultant to be able to pinpoint where are the wealth energies that we’re currently going through and activate those wealth corners and – we know in classical feng shui there’s more than just one wealth corner.
Activate that so that you can finally get your listing off the market.
Now with that being said, I’ve just recently come across another feng shui enthusiast. And she mention to me that.. she knows of a million dollar listing here in Toronto, Canada that has been on the market for quite a few months now and they brought in a classical feng shui consultant.
I do know that consultant and I know she does really great work and she’s someone that I admire as well. But this lady that I met said it was still not working because the house is still on the market.
Well, I took a look at the house. And it was – all the recommendations were spot on but when I really looked at the outside of that house,
I realized, this is not really a million dollar market, you know?
It’s not a million-dollar area.
The house – just across from it is a little bungalow (that is) not very well maintained. And the other houses down the street
were kind of in the same shape, you know? In the same form of level of maintenance.
So, even if.. Now, we’re being realistic here and – I, as a feng shui consultant, I’ve never promised feng shui as the magical twirl; that you do feng shui and everything will change overnight. That’s never been the intention.
The intention of feng shui especially the way we do it is to obviously, to navigate the energy that is already there and then boost it
up as much as possible.
But if you look at this house that I was looking at, even though all the feng shui recommendations were spot on, all the logical stuff unfortunately was a little bit off, you know?
The old real estate saying, “Buy the cheapest house in the most expensive neighborhood.”
That’s the smartest thing to do as opposed to buying the more expensive piece of real estate in a cheap neighborhood. And that, unfortunately, is the case for this house.
It’s a million dollar house – 1.2 (million) in fact, I think. It’s the asking price in a neighborhood that doesn’t really command that kind of interest. Right?
So, even with the feng shui, that did bring the foot traffic in, the buyers are obviously still doing – well, they don’t know about the feng shui portion for one but they go through the house and they’d look at the neighborhood and they’re going through the check marks that they’re likely gonna have; and they’re probably gonna think the same thing that I did.
And it was a very obvious and a very big problem that this specific listing was having. So again, that’s.. I guess this is.. my comment with regards to that listing still being on the market. It’s, you know, feng shui-wise; it has been remedied but the fact that it’s still on the market, you know, the seller needs to.. and in fact, the real estate agent also needs to look at the other logical realistic things as well. Right?
I have helped a lot of my clients sell their listings. And these are usually the ones where – you know, structurally, they look great… close to public transit, close to a good school, close to parks or whatever. It checks a lot (and) ticks a lot of boxes, but for some reason, it’s still on the market. Those are the ones where once you add in that feng shui elements that it does get off; (and) it does move very very quickly after that.
The fastest that I’ve gotten as my feedback was four hours. And then, you know, my other clients – they will have their homes or their commercial properties listed for a few months and then a few weeks after we did the proper feng shui, then it finally… you know, they finally got rid of it.
So, as much as I would like to give you generalized tips on how to sell your real estate through feng shui… My best advice really is to invest in a classically trained consultant so they can help you with that. Or if you find that you can find one in your area, I can do it long distance as well. Feel free to look me up my website is FengShuiAndProsper.com. Let’s have a chat and see if it would be something that you
would be interested to proceed with me.
Anyway, this is a little bit of a rant today.. but anyway, I wanted to share that bit of insight in terms of feng shui and real estate.
And if you have any questions, feel free to email me at Safrina@FengShuiAndProsper.com. And hopefully, I’ll be able to hear from you. If not, I’ll see you on my next video!
Classical feng shui consultant Safrina Kadri recommends Catherine Ponder’s classic book Dynamic Laws of Prosperity as a great tool to work on inner feng shui!
If you’ve ever heard of Law of Attraction or have been on the spiritual / metaphysical path for a while you will have learned the power of prayer, meditation and visualization in helping you magnetize more health, wealth and relationships. In this short video Safrina shares a great resource to get you started!
Hi everyone, I’m just deciding to do an impromptu video here out on my solarium. If you hear any shuffling that’s my eight-year-old daughter playing around, but.. don’t mind the traffic either.
Firetruck might come by, but anyway…
I wanted to share with you a very, very important resource. Ever since I started on this spirituality path.. probably about 12 years ago. About the same time that I found out about feng shui. And you’re starting to hear me talk a little bit more about inner feng shui as well.
I’m actually going to be integrating that into my online course..
so we’re gonna be doing step by steps on
outer feng shui obviously in terms of placements and things like that, but it’s also very very important to be working on the inner feng shui.
Now this is a great resource and I want to share with you guys this is the Dynamic Laws of Prosperity by Catherine Ponder. It was published many decades ago and it’s still one of the best prosperity books out there.
It’s not as widely known but it’s pretty thick. This one I’ve had with me for about 10 years now and you can see it’s…
I have my favorite pages all dog-eared and I have my notes everywhere in the book and it goes through with you the basic prosperity laws and also gives you techniques affirmations, and
prayers. I really really do believe in prayer in shifting that inner energy as well.
So this is definitely a really really great resource to start with.
I just checked out Amazon and they’re selling for a $1.99 if this is something that you can carry on you even to read throughout the day… I’m actually gonna start a challenge… to
challenge myself to read I passage our chapter at least a little bit every day just to reinforce that… a little bit more that prosperity mindset.
I’ve always loved this book and I’m reconnecting back with that and I really really wanted to share with you guys. So definitely give it a try either buy the hardcover if you really like highlighting or at the very least and the $1.99 and get it on Kindle. I really like to have my am my books on the phone is also that I can also get reinforcements when I’m out and about and…
please comment below I what your feedback is once you’ve started reading on it, if you’ve tried I started with the exercises and I don’t know maybe we’ll start a book club or something.
So the Dynamic Laws a Prosperity by Catherine Ponder. I truly believe the loss on every persons shelf who is willing to do the work, to shift the inner energy, to finally attract true prosperity. Thanks so much guys have a great one!
Hi, everyone! This is Safrina Kadri from fengshuiandprosper.com. Now, we are still in the throes of Chinese New Year celebrations and I have been getting a lot of requests and a lot of questions and concerns about the astrological forecast for 2015.
I have mentioned before that I will be coming out with some information some astrological forecast for everyone but I have actually decided to not do it.
Why? Because I don’t want it to be crutch for anyone.
Just, you know, where astrological forecasts are concerned, a lot of people think, “Oh, if you’re born in the year of the rat or if you’re born in the year of the sheep, then you have a certain typeof energy coming to you.”
Yes generally that is true. However if your feng shui is good then whatever the forecast is you will have a better 2015. So if astrologically you’re supposed to have a successful year but your space in your office, in your business, or at home it’s blocking all the abundance qi, then that success is gonna have a hard time to come into your life. And I have seen it, believe me, I have been a consultant for seven years and have read many many Chinese astrological charts for my clients… There were times when they were supposed to have a lot of material abundance but that did not come through because the house had a very bad feng shui foundation.
On the flip side I’ve also seen, personally, situations where it’s supposed to be a astrologically horrendous year but with the right feng shui the energy got shifted. Success still comes through the door. My husband for instance, last year – and I’m not just looking at the year that he was born – I looked at his whole four pillars which is the month, the year, the day and the hour that he was born. So last year were supposed to be a fairly challenging year for him and obviously with the feng shui that I did for us space, I made sure that the challenges that were coming will be reduced. And then, any opportunity for success will be boosted.
So whether it’s going to be astrologically weak or astrologically strong year it doesn’t matter. You still need to make sure that your feng shui foundation is good then you’ll still come out ahead.
So that is the reason why I’m not doing the astrological forecast this year and very likely not going to be doing it and the future. So I do apologize for those who are waiting on me to do that but take this bit of advice from someone who has done a lot and seen a lot of case studies, feng shui is still the first and foremost priority.
You want to shift your energy okay?
So if there’s any other questions or any other topic so you’d like me to cover feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. or look me up on youtube and on Facebook and in the meantime I wish you a successful 2015!
Question I got in my inbox today:
My question is about why in your lineage uses the move-in date/period as opposed to the date of construction? I’m just not clear on this. Doesn’t the construction year and period captivate the energy of that time and live on throughout the life of the building?
Great question! We use the move-in date as opposed to construction date when determining building period because as new people enter a space, they bring with them a new Mankind Qi with them. The building of the foundation of the home locks in the Earth Qi, the building of the roof locks in the Heaven Qi, but the Mankind Qi changes as the people using that space changes hands especially if this takes them into a new Period.
This is why sometimes you hear stories about how a previous owner ( if they’ve been there for a while they’re likely in a previous Period, perhaps Period 7 or even Period 6 ) would have bad luck in the house, but the new owners ( with the new, updated period of the home ) is able to capture a more auspicious qi in the house and become very successful whether they’re aware of feng shui or not.
Vice versa happens too, not all Period 8 homes are good for specific layouts. Sometimes as a feng shui consultant I have to decide whether or not to recommend to my clients to update their Home Period or not ( especially if they’re in period 6 ), and this is when I review both the old and the new period to see which one would be more auspicious for living. Updating the period in most cases would require the homeowners to move out for at least 100 days, and then move back into the house and this time they’ll be in Period 8.
If you follow the construction year of the building, then a ‘bad luck’ building will be bad luck forever and ever and always. For instance an old castle with history of death and strife ( and there ARE feng shui combinations that point to this ) would forever been unsuitable for use if we follow this logic. But you see some old buildings flourishing with new owners especially if the new period brings more auspicious energies to the important areas of the building.
I’ve actually done a consult of an entertainment lounge situated in a strip of retail stores, and they’ve been there since Period 7. All other stores in that strip has changed hands many times with businesses failing to flourish. I was able to see that all the doors of these Period 8 units were afflicted. BUT my client, who has remained in Period 7 as they owned that building and have been operating their business there for a much longer period of time, had a more prosperous front door, and have carved a good market and clientele for themselves. This is a great example why construction year is not a reliable method of deciding the period of a building. Hope this helps!
