Feng Shui for Academic Success
If you want the children to be successful in school, make the room study friendly. Bring Feng Shui in the child's room, writes Mohan Deep.Updated: Jul 11, 2005 15:30 IST
I have two instances that go into four years in the past, in front of me: In one, the parents included the sketches of Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, Buddha and Albert Einstein as the interior of a student's room. The windows were curtained to avoid distraction. The desk was in such a position that the child had his back to the door to avoid distraction and so that the mom could periodically keep an eye on the child.
In the other one - in consultation with me - the study desk and the child's bed was placed as per Feng Shui principles, the colors were in harmony with the child's element and the room was airy and bright. The frames / laminations on the walls were a blend of Superman, Archies, my own `the Peak` and (since the child wants to be a pilot when he grows up) a flying aircraft.
And he had a talisman I had suggested to him in his pocket during all the tests. (I will write about this talisman soon and will make it commercially available on this site.)
The first one who had Albert Einstein and others on the wall (not to forget a list of 20 inspiring quotes) has tired of studies and the parents were worried about his tantrums. The second one has steadily progressed and is among the top rankers in his class. Besides excelling in studies he is a rounded, happy personality.
I have often had parents approaching me for Feng Shui help with requests like, "My son is brilliant but he cannot concentrate. His attention span is limited." Or "Though my daughter works very hard the luck is not in her favor." Or "My son missed the rank by one mark."
And more frequently, the parents complain that the children are glued to TV sets. Even a recent study has shown that TV in a child's room adversely affects the academic performance. How does Feng Shui look at TV in the child's room? TV is a big no-no whether in the children's room or in your own bedrooms! TV emits Yang energy that can easily destroy the Yin, required for rest or concentration. The focus of a student shifts because of TV.
The same study advocates the presence of computer in the child's room. I too support it though a net connection in child's room - or for that matter in any bedroom - is like the presence of a third person, a diversion in the life of a child (or a couple). Internet too is a no-no.
If you want the children to be successful in school, make the room study friendly. Bring Feng Shui in the child's room. The bed alignment is as important as the placement of the desk. The right Feng Shui can motivate an average child into successfully participating and winning the race, and an unbalanced Feng Shui can destroy the career of a brilliant child.
It is important that the student sits facing his Sheng Chi (Success direction), which is not the same for everyone. Besides, his work desk must be in the Knowledge sector of the home. This too is not as easy as it sounds. What if there is a toilet in this location? What if the Knowledge corner is incomplete or totally absent? It is unfair to blame a student for not faring well when there are Feng Shui flaws in his surroundings. It is much worse to pressurize him to score when the Earth luck is against him.
Feng Shui can be an effective tool to enhance the performance of the students, to trigger their luck in education and career sectors. But, consulting a Feng Shui Master a week before the examination and expecting a miracle is stretching it too far. If you want to consult the Master, do it now but not necessarily for the examination the next week!
The best thing is to get the Feng Shui right and then patiently wait for the results. And if you want the talisman you will have to wait.
