Dear Madam Lee, so often I read and hear about the benefits of having a water feature placed in my home according to Feng Shui principles. However I must confess that I find all of the guidelines to be quite confusing and just don’t know where to put my fountain. Is it really necessary to have a water feature placed in my home in order to achieve the personal and professional success I seek? Furthermore no-one seems to speak much about Fire in the home, except to give general recommendations such as the stove should not be located next to or opposite the sink as this creates a conflict between Water and Fire. As I am about to renovate my kitchen I would really appreciate some guidance in this area. Jessie M. Atlanta USA
In Traditional Feng Shui there are 3 rings on the Lopan which are used to calculate good fire placement; in conjunction of course with the occupant’s date of birth and their individual relationship to the placement of fire. These were taught to me over many years by my mentor and teacher, Master Henry Liu. Each lesson would be followed by him saying, “Please observe and work with this information and understand it deeply before we move on”.
