Many beginners who have heard of Feng Shui have the mistaken belief that Feng Shui is almighty. The beginner thinks, “As soon as I get it right, as soon as I master this technique I’ll be rich, famous, capture my love’s heart, be CURED of my sickness…etc.”
Basically, Feng Shui is really like a safety-net as it prevents you from falling to death. What does this mean? It means that the right Feng Shui set-up can cushion you from going to the worst (effect from a cause) by your own act (a cause). To rephrase that, what Feng Shui does is to cushion one from going to the worst (effect from a cause) which is caused by one’s own deeds.
Here’s an example: Let’s say you’re receiving energy (QI) from a particular compass direction and you’ve made a blunder at work that could get you sacked. But because of that positive Qi you’re receiving you might only get demoted or just a warning.
You see, Feng Shui is always a safety net. It can’t change the fact that you will receive some karmic effects from your actions but it can reduce the negative impact. If you combine a spiritual practice with Feng Shui it will be extremely powerful at cushioning the impact although the spiritual practice is not needed for Feng Shui to work.
So it is that life flows and we receive both the good and the bad. Lao Tzu said, “Life is the flow of energy. It is the air that we breathe, the force that moves the weather, the force of all minds combined. The sage understands and utilizes this flow for the benefit of all.” (And so does the Feng Shui master) He also said, “The flow of life can be affected and manipulated by a simple thought or action. The sage is also aware that the results of such activity can be quite unpredictable.” This is where a spiritual practice can strengthen the cushioning as a focused mind is more easily able to overcome.
If someone puts all of their hopes into Feng Shui, believing they will have complete control and being able to turn everything into a benefit for them they are forgetting one important thing~ the KARMIC SUBTRACTER. Bad karma yields negativities. Those negativities reduce the positive effect given by good Feng Shui.
So, if Feng Shui can only cushion you from an impact of your own bad karma, what else can you do to change your destiny, to help you eliminate the negative karma you’ve accrued? The best way is through *doing good deeds.* Every religion, even atheists, believe in doing good deeds. No one owns the rights to the idea of doing good deeds.

In closing, I leave you with the knowledge that Feng Shui can most certainly help you overcome difficulties if you can manage to receive positive Qi from your environment. I am here to hep you should you need me. Just ask.
Take every opportunity to do a kindness, because you never know when the chance will come again. The sage understands how a simple kindness can bring great rewards for oneself and others. –Lao Tzu
