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!
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!
