“It’s not what you know, but who
you know.” This is a popular cliché which emphasizes the way the world works.
Having personal connections is often a critical ingredient to success and not
just in the entertainment industry. From a feng shui perspective, there are
several ways that a person can achieve success. You can be born with
advantages (referred to as Heaven Luck.) You can also use your Earthly Luck
(your feng shui environment) to nurture and harness auspicious timing and
Some people are genuinely successful
through their own hard work, with no one to thank but themselves. In fact,
some people succeed even with great adversity trying to block them. Others are
successful, in part, because they have benefactors or people who they can team
up with to make them more successful than they would have otherwise been on
their own. Think about an average singer whose voice gets altered and improved
in the recording studio by a skilled music producer. We also have that saying,
“Power by Association.” The show 20/20 once did a segment on nepotism,
featuring the adult children whose famous and wealthy parents have done more
than open doors for their offspring.
So what can the rest of us do to bring
more benefactors and helpful people into our lives and give us our lucky
breaks? If you look to the following chart, you
will see a direction associated with your year of birth. If you sleep with
your head pointing to that direction, or enter your house through that
directional quadrant of your house, or position your desk in that directional
orientation, you can start attracting more people to you who can help you
succeed in your career.
If you were born between January 1st
and February 3rd, consider yourself a year older on this chart
because the Feng Shui Trigram System is based on a Solar Calendar that starts
on February 4th, not on January 1st.
