you need to stick your wild boar into your lucky corner and spend more time with him.

Laughing

(sorry, I have been reading some basics of FS recently to help with my upcoming decorating chores and my head is a bit.. well... strange. No wait, that could be the 4 hours sleep a night I have had all week. I need to go feed my lucky pig....

OK, little sleep-deprived meltdown aside... I cannot offer much insight into the year of wild boar (nto sure why in English we just say pig...)

Anyway, the FS thing I totally fall for. Especially teh bit about clutter. Unclutter your life (ie. chuck out all the crap in your house) and free up your chi.. it will flow through the house and make everything in your life a bit better (or something like that)

I mean, even in the west we talk about how good it feels to have a good clean out and get rid of all the things laying around the house.. same principle, but we dont think of it as "freeing the chi", just about it being "taking control".

And using difficult mathmatical calculations they can tell you the "lucky" parts of the house for you and you are supposed to spend more time in those places... it is also about where you place things in the house (like, even the placement of a rubbish bin is significant).. and the one I remember most.. NEVER buy a house where the steps from 2nd floor point directly out the front door (if you do your money will just flow out the door)

And if you are confused about your "Chi", then all I have to say is "may the force be with you" (same principle, but I doubt that controlling your Chi would help you life a space craft out of a swamp. Laughing )

I had the house feng sheu'd years ago. Seems our lucky corner/s are either behind the bed in the guest room or in the far reaches of our garage!

I'a pig.

This is the year of the Fire Pig -


2007 is a Fire Pig Year, considered one of the most
auspicious years to give birth to children, out of the
whole 120 year astrology cycle (10 celestial stems x 12
terrestrial branches = 120). A higher rate of reported
pregnancies in China - up 30% from last year by one
count - is one reflection of the popularity of the Pig
Year. Websites for “Golden Pig Mothers” have sprouted
up, and special "Pig Mother" maternity deals are being
offered by hotels. So we're not talking about the
quaint superstitions of peasants. Even the Chinese
government has issued a Pig stamp and commemorative
gold and silver coins with a Pig on them. Why the big
fuss over a Pig?
Role of the Pig in Chinese Culture

First, Westerners need to put on a new pair of cultural
lenses. In the West, pigs are often seen as dirty, fat,
lazy creatures who lie sleeping all day in filth. Call
it the Year of the Boar if you cannot get over your
image of dirty pig. In China, pigs are highly
respected. In ancient times they ran wild and were
considered to have strong shamanic powers. In the
famous novel "Journey to the West", the Monkey King
(symbolizing the evolving human travelling on a
spiritual adventure) has "Pigsy" as his main companion.
Together they get into a lot of trouble - and fun. I
summarize the story (see Godchecker.com for more
details):

Pigsy the Pig spirit was actually the ex-Marshall of
the Hosts of Heaven, who was sent down into a pig's
body after lusting after angels and stuffing his face
with food at every opportunity. The last straw was one
day he guzzled too much immortal peach wine and got
fresh with Chang-O, Goddess of the Moon.

An uproar ensured, and the Jade Emperor turned into a
monstrously ugly pig spirit on earth to teach him a
lesson.

But it didn't work. As Pigsy, his lustful nature
multiplied and soon he was revelling in troughs and
chasing pretty ladies for all he was worth. After many
mis-adventures, with the help of Kuan YIn, their quest
was fulfilled and Pigsy achieved enlightenment. In
heaven he was rewarded with the title Cleaner of the
Holy Altar, and thousands of worshippers send him
offerings to this very day. Moral of the story: it CAN
pay to be a pig - just play your part well!

I'm a PIG too!!! (Sounds funny!!)

Whoever is a pig this year (1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007), put a tiger at the southeast corner of your house will bring you luck and protect you. And remember to have something red on you all year round. Lots of Chinese wear red underwear or have a red string tie on their wrist for the whole year.

Happy Chinese New Year!!!!!

I'm a pig! My doctor is a Qi Gong Grandmaster. He started as an MD in China, then studied Qi Gong. So he's also an expert at Feng Sheu. His prescription for me after the last time he treated me and saw a diagram of my house was this; I had to get rid of some "bad blood" so I was to donate blood before the new year. I was to put a fish tank with 9 brightly colored fish in the SW corner of my house, near my bed. Also in the bedroom - a red rug, no green, a vase with 4 red flowers. There was more, but I must say, I my fish!!!!

I know there is bound to be alot to the FS. Most of the major hotels/casinos in Las Vegas have FS Masters in on the design. There is even one hotel/casino that had the entire front redesigned because it was originally bad fs. Personally, I'd like to know more.
