Do you find many Feng Shui books embarrassingly hard to follow? Do you feel you need to be as clever as Confucius to activate the Feng Shui Romance area in your home, or pep up the Golden Prosperity Point in your workspace? That’s why I confesses that I set out to write the world’s easiest-to-understand book on this ancient Chinese art of creating harmony in your home and workplace. Complete with simple illustrations. In the ten years that I’ve been writing my Feng Shui column for the national Australian magazine Woman’s Day, I’ve received floods of letters from around the globe. Thousands of people demanded a book written in the same easy-to-apply way I write my weekly column, where I cover everything from lucky house shapes and plugging money leaks, to a six-page photographic story rating Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s mansion.
People asked for the same bright and breezy style with plenty of personal stories and celebrity anecdotes. Practical decorating help and concise tips. Plus all the fascinating Feng Shui wealth and health secrets I give that are not revealed in other books. The letters spelled it out: Tell us what to do when renovating. How to find a home with good Feng Shui, the road to riches, boost our energy—even sell your home faster. And hey! We all need study or exam success, plus ease in job interviews. Tell us in plain language how to improve our luck, love, peace, harmony, and happiness.
Column readers also asked that I explain, in simple terms, the yin moonlight and yang daylight lucky charms for everyone and how to use these lucky charms in decor. Psssssst! they urged. Don’t forget the Baby Boost method and how to beat the blues. Or your famous Win-More-Dates and Find-a-Marriage-Partner rituals. Tell us all your spooky Feng Shui magic! An information-packed book called Feng Shui in 5 Minutes resulted. It quickly became a best seller down under. Now available in an exciting new American edition from Llewellyn, Feng Shui in 5 Minutes comes in the same easy-read question and answer format found in my weekly column.
As my book title suggests, everyone today wants fast answers. You can open Feng Shui in 5 Minutes anywhere and enjoy an effortless read. And here’s more good news. My book contains no confusing compass directions, or charts that strain your brain.
I use an uncomplicated Dragon Door Feng Shui, combined with an intuitive approach. Everyone loves it! My method applies anywhere in the world, unlike many Feng Shui schools whose rules reverse in other hemispheres. This universality makes Feng Shui in 5 Minutes the ideal gift to mail overseas friends. Even people who know nothing of Feng Shui find my book the perfect introduction. For instance, during the last Olympic Games in Sydney, many top international athletes learned about Feng Shui for the first time, from my two-page magazine article rating the official Olympic athletes village. Many Olympic athletes then took my book back to their own country, happy to know it applies everywhere.
As another bonus, once you invest in my easy-read book, forget spending hundreds of dollars on Feng Shui consultants. You can harmonize your home, garden, or workplace yourself, then advise your friends too. In fact, many folks have set themselves up as Feng Shui consultants, just on the strength of my powerful book. One metaphysical school uses it as an official textbook, though this seems a strange word to describe such a fun book.
The Marriage Partner Ritual
My Feng Shui ritual to attract a marriage partner is explained the same simple way. I’ve never seen this intriguing technique revealed elsewhere. For starters, you need to acquire a teacup from someone who’s married. This transfers “marriage qi,” or marriage energy, to you. Buying a cup from a shop won’t do.
I remember one young girl, Michelle, who wrote and complained that she didn’t know any married person well enough to ask for a cup. All her friends were single. But that was half her trouble. Feng Shui is mysterious the way it works. Anyway, after sixteen months, Michelle received a proposal, so she was overjoyed. (This marriage ritual takes up to eighteen months to work, but only needs a couple of minutes attention most nights.)
The first printing of my easy-read book sold out fast in Australia, where I’m called the first lady of luck. Feng Shui popularity is skyrocketing in America, so don’t miss out on this amazing book. Take one minute to order your copy of Feng Shui in 5 Minutes right now.
