Lillian Too's "Little Book of Feng Shui"
Never judge this book's size, for it will be the key to provide happiness in your lives.
This is a book we've owned for a very long time—we're talking about over ten (10) years. Sure, it may be just another pocket book, but inside contains a lot of tips, tricks, and practices to get your Life functioning in a way that favors you. How so? Feng Shui is the practice of Chinese superstition, using the energy of the Chi and the Earth's natural resources to flow in a way such that you will be happy, successful and even rich. Many of you may not be convinced, but growing up with parents who found such thing, we've noticed HUGE improvements in our lives. Okay, perhaps Feng Shui may not help you win the lottery, but it will help you find happiness in love, business and health.
Whether you live in an apartment, condo, or a full-sized house, getting to know the corners and areas of your room is very important such as where the northeast is, the southern-most part of your house and so on. Knowing these will get you a better understanding on where to fix or enhance certain areas of your home. Why? Some people shrug life happenings as coincidence, but you ever wonder the reason(s) for getting the luck you have? You could be the best-looking person in the room that attracts attention from anyone who walks by you, but we're willing to bet that that person has never taken a step back to reflect why they're unlucky in love. Oh, yes, it does happen. Perhaps a little Feng Shui will help? Thank goodness for books like these.
Our favorite Feng Shui ritual has to be none other than 3 [people] in a picture on page 87. Did you know the having three people in a picture causes separation between them? Unless those three are family or relatives, yes, three people featured in a picture will cause at least one person to drift away from the other two. This is a Feng Shui belief I personally stand by after watching the separation unfold, expectedly and unexpectedly. Let me provide an example: A former coworker, his girlfriend and his girlfriend's brother all took a picture together while we were at a bowling alley for a colleague's birthday. I didn't take the picture, however, when I saw the image, I was a little bit nervous. Even though other folks have tried to defy the superstition, it ends up happening anyway. A few months later, I got word that that former coworker of mine and his girlfriend called it quits as he couldn't stop crying on the phone. Granted, things happen for a reason regardless, however, we can minimize the negative energy making its way through by knowing what it is we do and limiting bad karma. Another example involved myself and two other high school classmates of mine. One of them never believed in superstitions, and ignored my worries about taking a photo featuring all three of us. Eventually, I caved in and agreed to take some photos. Less than a month later, one of them got into an argument with me because he wanted to find an excuse to justify the wrong-doing he did to someone else, to which I veered on the side of honesty. He disliked my honest response and suggestion, and it wasn't long that he stopped talking to me (though, immaturely, he'd purportedly slander and mock everything I do in my life, from the way I look to managing this website even to this day). On the other hand, taking a picture with yourself and two other people, whom you never want to see again, makes this a great opportunity to do so. At a time like this, we recommend not seeing things in that way but we'd thought we say so. Overall, one, two, four or more people are your best choice when taking pictures. If you still think this is dumb, ask Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez, all three ladies who at one point have taken a picture together. Here we are in 2022, are the girls still in touch with each other? Shouldn't they take more photos together?
Since a lot of young folks are seeking practices to help them get through these tough times, learning and doing Feng Shui will certainly aid in that department. I don't blame us: These past couple of years have been a challenge, and it's important to really contain yourselves, find peace and make time to be in harmony with the Earth. Yes I understand, people can be cruel to nature and to other beings, but that doesn't mean we can't stop being good to others and ourselves. Finding harmony and peace using Feng Shui can really brighten things up in your lives whether you're aware it or not. It's time you make a change for the better.
Our only critique with this book is it doesn't have page numbers nor does it have an index. On the upside of that, it forces the reader/researcher to dig in and find what the book has to offer and what practices you can try. If and when you do so, BE PATIENT. These rituals don't happen immediately—not in one hour nor in one day. Once the practice is in place, give it time and do something else. Eventually, you'll notice something different...and good.
It was this book that welcomed me into the world of Feng Shui and I've never been happier with my life's path (some rocky moments here and there, but overall, it's been steady and good). Now, yes, things don't always work out in our favor, but it has limited the bad energy being hurled my way. You can too, and we promise you, you'll feel a heck of a lot better. Thank you to Lillian Too for this simple but wonderful book! We strongly recommend it!
