Feng Shui And Rise in Fortunes

Rags to riches stories are always fascinating, and when the credit goes to Feng Shui I feel happy, writes Mohan Deep in his column.

Rags to riches stories are always fascinating, and when the credit goes to Feng Shui I feel happy. This story has three phases:

March 2002. Donald was a Senior Executive in a well-known business house. He came across through this column on Hindustan Times. "I am forty six and consider myself a failure. Looking back at the four decades of my life I feel frustrated, bitter. What have I achieved? "Nothing.

"Granted, I have a regular job with good salary but where is it taking me? I do not have the sense of achievement. There is not a single thing I can be proud of. I want to do something significant. I want to leave a legacy behind. I do not want my son to struggle as I have struggled. I want to have a successful enterprise that I could leave behind. I do not want my wife to work. I want her to look after the home and be free from the worries of day to day.

"Of late, I have started seeing that, as a policy, young people are being appointed. I find myself answerable to them! Though no one has acted tough, I find it humiliating. I often think of leaving this job and start something on my own. "Do you think Feng Shui can be of use to me?"

I gave him a rather long answer. Feng Shui, I told him, was all about getting more from life. Feng Shui is about Trinity of Luck: the Heaven Luck, the Man Luck and the Earth Luck. We can't control the Heaven Luck. We are born with it. It is believed that the Heaven Luck affects 40 percent of our life. The Man Luck is when you exercise your free will. The Man Luck controls 25 per cent of your life. Your success is even more defined if your Heaven Luck is in your favour.

The Earth Luck is the domain of Feng Shui. The Earth Luck controls 35 per cent of our life. Feng Shui can enhance, augment and trigger the Earth Luck. Flow with the tide, go for your gut feeling…do what you always wanted to do. Take risks. You only live once. And, with an improved enhanced Earth Luck you will not fail.

Don discussed formalities before Feng Shui consultation and incorporated all the changes I suggested. Slightly garrulous, he wanted Feng Shui focus on everything specially Money and Fame sectors. By now I knew enough about him and what he wanted from life. Success, security, recognition, fame, admiration, power, status…

Don wanted to be somebody. He wanted his wife to admire him and son to look up at him. He didn't want a hero outside their home. He wanted to be the hero. It seemed an impossible dream for a man his age.

Leaving everything to God, I plunged into Feng Shui with a positive attitude. He didn't want half measures and we went all out. The Feng Shui was complete. He laminated the Feng Shui info about lucky directions, auspicious days, dates, timings, elements, colors and numbers that I give to every one who consults me. Not many Feng Shui Masters provide such exclusive print out, and not many treat it like `the last word`. Don did that.

June, 16, 2003. Don called and started thanking me! "Today I complete a year of consultation and looking back at the year gone I am more than satisfied. This has been the best year of my career. My earnings have far exceeded my expectations but that is not what has made me happy. I have a sense of achievement. I have over two-dozen happy clients who have made millions on my financial advice. Their investments have grown over the year and with that have grown my reputation in the market. I am planning to move from this rented office (that he had acquired in consultation with me 10 months ago) to my own. Thanks to Feng Shui and thanks to you."

"Don, do not shift. Why don't you try buying this very office?" I suggested. I knew that this office was the most auspicious for him and the placement of everything was just right. Perhaps the owner of the property had seen his success, he asked for much more than the market rate. Don didn't hesitate. After a brief round of negotiation he purchased the office.

"I cannot imagine how it has happened. I own my office and have a solid bank balance and a list of happy clients…" Don said.

Phase 3: The good phase continues in the same direction with the same speed. It is his fourth successful year. The business has expanded. He has prospered. If in 2003, when he said ten he meant Rs 10 lakhs, now `five` means Rs 5 crore for him! His demeanor, when he arrives in a Chauffeur driven Lexus instead of a beat up Esteem at Hotel Sun-N-Sand where I met him the last, has changed. Last year, he holidayed abroad with his family.

Donald has arrived on social circuit. Everything about him has changed. What remains unchanged is his faith in Feng Shui.
