Measuring Life

How do we measure our lives?

I look at mine in 20 year spans.  My first 20 years was spent growing into an adult.  The second raising a family, and the third was spent in a constant work/learn/take your beatin’ mode.  Now I have begun my fourth 20 year span.  How will I spend these life minutes?

Well, for one thing I will do my best to not repeat the errors of the past.  Some of those will be hard to put behind me, but that’s my goal.   I will not be beating myself up anymore over the mistakes I have made.  The past does not have to ruin the future.

It’s time to reset myself, and although it seems a bit drastic,  I will not be seeking any new residential Feng Shui clients, and wherever possible, I will refer any new client requests to others.   So what will I be doing?

Like many people I have a desire to enjoy my life as well as contribute to society.   So this next 20 years I want to see more of this amazing country with my children and grandchildren.  It’s a beautiful world and we live in a country that holds a bit of everything; glaciers, deserts, mountains, prairies, rain forest…all of it.   Heck, we might even find Bigfoot while we’re out stomping around!

I will be concentrating on using the IChing to pick stocks and predict hurricane landfalls.  I’ll pick stocks to fund those amazing adventures and I’ll find a way to use the IChing to help those in hurricane prone areas to better predict and prepare for the storms.

I will also still take on commercial Feng Shui clients.

It looks to be a very interesting 20 year span.






Investing with IChing

A few months ago I had the idea to use the IChing to check the corporate offices of companies that I would consider investing in.   When I do a Feng Shui consultation I often go to the IChing before the visit.  This way I can get an idea what to expect before I arrive at the location.

The IChing reading will tell me if the house is controlled by the people or if the people control the house.  It will tell me if it’s a money pit and often I can see how to fix the problems before I even arrive at the door.  It’s a marvelous tool.

  • When I used the I Ching to check on a mining company, I asked, “What is the Feng Shui of the Corporate Office of Heckla Mining Company?”  The resulting hexagram showed wealth generated.  The reading was done in August 2015.

Then in November I asked specifically about the stock.  This reading showed wealth at Chen/earth.  Earth is fed and generated by fire.    We’re now in a Fire Monkey year.  Fire and Metal are at the year.  Earth bridges the two.

In August, Heckla stock was $1.68.   In November 2015 it was around $1.90.   Near the end of this Fire Monkey year (2016 to Feb 4, 2017) the stock is at $5.83.  Quite the return, wouldn’t you say?

I love this stuff!

One More Month

Rooster year doesn’t start for Feng Shui purposes until February 4th.  How’s that for weird?

That’s when the energy of your space will change, but in the meantime, we still have another month of the crazy Yang Fire Monkey Year to deal with.   That’s right…more monkey.   And, he’s still playing with fire.

Well, on January 5th the monthly energy changes from the Yang Metal Rat to the Yin Metal Ox.  I like the Ox myself.   He usually brings me money.  Let’s hope the Ox can calm down the flaming, troublemaker of a Monkey!

In January the monthly stars should not be causing so many problems as they did/will in December.  They will have to be watched a bit though.

If your door is in the North, make sure that door doesn’t smack you in the face!  The 7 and 5 combination can cause mouth problems.  When you consider the monkey year…things could get a bit exciting.

Don’t make decisions about money in the Northeast.  The monthly and yearly stars here combine for money problems.

If your kitchen is in the East, be especially careful of burns.

Southeast can bring health, wealth and sibling troubles.  Why not just leave it at health and wealth? There’s the catch.  In Feng Shui we are constantly saying, “It all depends.”  And, it does.  Landforms can change what looks like a bad area into a good one or what looks good into a not so good area.  So can the pathways inside your home!  The whole picture has to be taken into consideration.

Nothing is ever as simple as just numbers, and nothing is static.   It’s good to be alerted to possible problems though!

Sometimes you can dodge that pothole if you know it’s there before you turn the corner.
