Feng shui master offers a peek into your destiny

In Chinese metaphysical studies, the concept of Heaven, Earth and Man are intricately entwined together. We can look at the whole picture by their effects on our Path of Life. We can study the Heaven effect with the Four Pillars of Destiny, the Earth effect with Feng Shui, and the Man effect with Yijing (I Ching).

The moment a person is born determines his destiny. The prevailing Qi — the energies that enter a person’s life at the exact moment of birth — influences his character, abilities, and potentials in life, luck, relationships, fortunes and misfortunes and are all determined by the type of Qi the spirit/soul is exposed to at the moment of birth.

Four Pillars of Destiny is to study the spirit of a person, and to chart his Path of Life. The Path of Life is not a straight line, but a wide wave band of variable widths with ups and downs. The upper portion of this band indicates the maximum achievement the person can attain, and the lower portion the bare minimum of subsistence. The person has the freedom to choose wherever he wants to walk on this path. At every crossroad he is also free to choose whichever turn he wants to take. The study of Yijing will also help the person in terms of his choice in making his decisions.

The study of Feng Shui will help the person with a good environment to thrive in. If he is going through a bad luck period, good Feng Shui will ensure his ability to tap into the most auspicious energies — good Wealth Qi to maximize on his earning capacity, and good Health Qi to provide him with a good character, good health and support from his family and friends in all his endeavors.

If the person is going through a good luck period, good Feng Shui will help him to accumulate wealth and assets, and build up a good support network, so he is well prepared for any future bad luck periods. But bad Feng Shui in both instances will be detrimental in terms of the outcome in the different luck periods.

Your Destiny and You is a four-part workshop taking a look at  how your destiny and fate impact you in everyday life, with the focus on how to act on your strengths, and how to make changes by understanding your weaknesses.

Workshops are two hours in length and take place Feb. 19 at 7 p.m., Feb. 24 at 10 a.m., Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. and March 3 at 2 p.m. The cost is $60 per person, per workshop, or $200 per person if you pre-register for all four workshops, with 50 per cent of the net proceeds going to the North Okanagan Hospice Society.
