Wolverhampton Feng Shui

Wolverhampton Feng Shui Consultation

When Claim Link, a personal injury claims firm, first approached us to Feng Shui their Wolverhampton office, we were intrigued. Aren’t these firms just out to exploit people? Are they some kind of shark? Would it be right to help them if they were of such character?

Since the metaphysical arts allow people to alter the normal flow of karma, our masters have always advised us never to help criminals or those of bad intention to others avoid the life lessons they rightfully need to face. An exploration of the personality of their management would be possible by using the Ba Zi method of Chinese Astrology and it was here that we started our consultation.

Jim Uppal, mild mannered and legally trained founding director of Claim Link explained. “Having worked in the legal field, I was astounded to see the way that so many employers were treating their staff. People would get injured and in many cases they were made to feel like it was their fault and their responsibility. The employee had done their level best for the employer, often over years, and yet when something goes wrong the employer has looked to simply discard that person without rightful recompense. It shouldn’t be that way. Employers shouldn’t be allowed to bully, exploit or abuse their staff and they cannot be allowed to be negligent. Time and time again, I’ve seen them try to get away with almost medieval type of conduct. You wouldn’t believe some of the stories I’ve seen. It is exactly because of this kind of unfair treatment that I wanted to use my skills to fight for justice for the victims. When people come to Claim Link, we take action to ensure that justice is done and that employers start to wake up to the fact that they need to be responsible.”

Looking at Jim’s astrological Ba Zi charts we could clearly see that he was both honest and sincere, a person who realised that true happiness wouldn’t be found in material gain. “Oh my god, you don’t know me! How do you know that?!” was Jim’s exclamation as Angela delivered her reading to him, and identified past events in her calculations. What those events where is of course entirely confidential, but Jim will testify to their accuracy, thus verifying our character reading of him.

In Yuen Liao Fan’s classic from the Ming Dynasty, Four Essays on Karma, there is a section in which Liao Fan tells us of what happened to him after he had his destiny read by an accomplished master of divination. It reads:

As time passed, I worked for a year at the capital, but was not inclined to study for advancement. Instead, I spent most of my spare time in meditation. When I returned to Nanking, I went to Mountain Qi-xia to visit Zen Master “Cloud Valley”. We practiced Zen meditation together for three days and three nights without sleeping.

Master Cloud Valley asked, “You have meditated for three days and three nights without distraction of improper thoughts and desires, unlike other ordinary people. May I ask what is the reason?”

I replied, “Mr. Hung has convinced me that my life is predetermined. There is no reason for me to have any presumptuous thoughts or desires.”

Master Cloud Valley responded, “If one does not awaken to his own nature and achieve a quiescent mind, then one’s life is governed by the dual force (Yin and Yang) of the Universe, and hence one’s fate shall be predetermined. However, a person whose nature is extremely kind will not be restrained by fate; neither will the ones who are the most wicked. So, for twenty years, you have let yourself be bound by fate. You are just an ordinary being and I thought you were a sage.” Then, he burst into laughter.

I asked, “So, do you think one can change one’s own fate?”

Master said, “As the proverb says: ‘One creates one’s own fate, and one’s outer appearance is projected from one’s mind. Calamity and happiness never enter a door-except when invited.’ It also says in the Buddhist scripture: ‘One shall have fortune, longevity, or a son or daughter if one wishes for it.’ This is not an irresponsible remark. Absence of deceit is one of the fundamental precepts of a Buddhist, and Buddhas and Bodhisattvas do not deceive people.”

“Mencius mentioned that one should wish for things that one can work for, such as loyalty and a moral character. As far as prestige and wealth are concerned, they are bestowed by others. How can one wish for them?” I asked.

“Mencius’s words are true, but you need to arrive at a further understanding. The sixth patriarch Zen master Hui-Neng said, ‘All seeds of fortune are within one’s mind. Look into one’s heart and one will get what one wants.’ Man should seek help from within himself, and practice earnestly to attain goodness. He will win respect from all others; consequently, external things like prosperity, fame and success in society follow. If a person doesn’t seek within his heart, his pursuit of fame and wealth, no matter how hard he tries, will be in vain.”

It is important in the understanding of Feng Shui to appreciate that both Karma or destiny and Freewill exist at the same time and there is no contradiction in that. It is simply the case that most people are unaware of their karma and are unable to step out of the flow of life to master their own destiny. Using Feng Shui is a powerful step in the right direction as it allows one to enjoy worldly riches and a smoother existence. Then one may cultivate the understanding required to exist solely in a state where one chooses what happens. The other important step is to cultivate a good heart and lead one’s life with the sincere intention of benefiting both society and others.

Yuen Liao Fan says:

“There are plenty of smart people in this world. However, not too many of them are successful, because they do not cultivate their morality and simply seek ease and comfort, wasting their treasured life.”

Jim Uppal’s sincere desire to help people enjoy a working life free from exploitation is an admirable cause. By helping people when they need help most, Claim Link can change the course of the their life for the better. An honest intention to make the world a better place will help one cultivate the heart, and with that all the riches and joys of the world are certain to follow. Having met Jim, we wish him all the best in the future, that he may be able to bring happiness to many others as well as himself.


Last Orders Please, Time At The Bagua!

Feng Shui bagua

The following story was volunteered by one of our clients and tells a tale of Feng Shui at work in her home town. Perhaps next time you visit the shops, you’ll see what Feng Shui is doing for their business!

Here’s a little story that happened in my town that I thought you might find interesting…

In a busy part of our town there is a lovely Chinese Restaurant that has been run by the same family for many years. It is directly opposite a slightly tatty pub that used to be our local. The restaurant is well run, clean and has reliably good food. For a long time the family kept applying to the Local Council for a licence to operate a take-away service but were constantly turned down. They tried to sell take-aways anyway, without a licence, and were told of course to stop. After a few years of this the Restaurant owners opened up a small Chinese store next door to their restaurant instead, selling all varieties of food, lanterns and ornaments.

Convex Bagua

One day I went into the store to buy a few things, and happened to notice lots of Bagua mirrors hanging up in the window, as well as an assortment of Feng Shui ‘ornaments’. I started talking to the owner who explained that he did not know anything about Feng Shui; he sold the mirrors because it was traditional for such stores to sell them in his native Hong Kong. He had hung them up in the window in all innocence, decorating the window.

Whilst passing the properties over the months I noticed that, some time after opening the shop, the owner was finally successful in his take-away licence application. A while again after that we heard that the pub across the road, which had been steadily deteriorating for some time, had been declared Bankrupt! The pub is now under new ownership and has been completely refurbished at some considerable cost. The restaurant and shop are still there and open for business, bagua mirrors too. I am waiting to see what happens next…

Feng Shui in North London

Enfield’s Sharon Mitchell is a model of personal power. A mother to two handsome young boys, a wife, a career in IT… She’s put herself out to be more than just a survivor; she wants to be a success! When she asked us to Feng Shui her home in Enfield, North London we were delighted to help. Sharon was looking to become self employed by becoming an independent distributor for the nutritional supplements company, HerbaLife.

“HerbaLife was great for me,” explained Sharon. “After I had my first son, Don, I was able to slim down fairly easily. But things weren’t like that after Nathan! After months of struggling on my own, getting frustrated with getting nowhere, I was introduced to HerbaLife. On the one hand it made my life easier, as I only needed to prepare my meal replacement drinks and eat from simple, easy foods. On the other hand I got coaching and support from someone who really cared about making the programme work for me. I think it was the interest in me shown by my HerbaLife coach that really set it apart from other slimming products; having someone to share your progress with helps so much! And that was how I got enough belief in their products to want to distribute them myself.”

When a person has many things going on, it’s often a hard job to keep up with them. The last thing you need is for “things to keep on happening”, little problems, disturbances or calamities that break your stride, slow you down or throw you off course. That’s why it is so extremely important to engage a Feng Shui consultant before you move and before you start up a business. Feng Shui is extremely effective at preventing calamities from arising, keeping you focussed, inspired and healthy and supporting the influx of prosperity. There are many hurdles you’ll need to overcome to get there and the help of an expert will move you forwards many times faster than just researching Feng Shui by yourself.

Here are a few words of Grand Master Sheng-yen Lu’s teachings about a common problem for homes in the UK and USA – the position of the staircase:

In western-style residences, more often than not, the staircase faces the main gate of the house.

Some Feng Shui consultants tend to overlook the staircase. Some say that a staircase close to the gate symbolizes upward moving each step being higher than the last. If the staircase leads to the basement, it symbolizes downward movement, each step being lower than the last. Upward movement is good while downward movement is bad.

In fact, these are erroneous ideas. The reason is that when the vitality forces come in through the main gate, they are stopped by the staircase, which, by its steps with cutting edges, intercepts them and throws them into confusion.

According to books on Feng Shui, the staircase close to the main gate symbolizes a bumpy road, full of unexpected destruction. This is something very serious. I would think that a staircase near the main gate is like a pillar close to the gate, it has strong destructive power.

In short, the staircase in the sitting-room of those sumptuous buildings is a “sign of decline.” For ordinary families, a staircase next to the gate is a “sign of unexpected calamities.”

Furthermore, Grand Master Sheng-yen Lu doesn’t believe that wind chimes, hanging bells, bamboo flutes or bronze nails are particularly effective in curing this problem as the incoming vitality forces will still be confused by the chopping effect of the stairs, although they may make you feel better for some time. You’ll need the help of an expert if you are to solve this problem without moving.

Sharon asked if we could share her thoughts with others regarding how the consultation went. She was impressed with the accuracy of the reading, how our consultant could name the times at which certain things had happened for her. These are her words:

Hi Angela,

Dropping you a line to say thank you for your help and advice. I felt a bit nervous at the beginning of the consultancy, but this soon disappeared once you explained a bit about your background, and what you were doing.

By the end of the consultancy I was very relaxed and a lot more positive. Your reading was very accurate indeed. So I will be taking great care! I have already put into action some of the suggestions. I moved the furniture around in the bedrooms, in fact I did it as soon as you left! Nathan, Don and myself all slept a lot better.

I feel very calm now and the living room feels a lot calmer now too.

Thank you again for help,

Having given Sharon a major boost, both to bring in new prosperity, and also to cut out her major sources of disharmony from within her home, we are confident that things will be better for her. We wish her all the best in developing her business distributing HerbaLife products.
