For all of you Feng Shui lovers out there!! 🙂
This is a pretty interesting article from Lillian Too. Instead of finding out what is the best hairstyle that best suits our face shape, let’s find out what Feng Shui says about the fortunes that lies ahead for us.
Discover the Fortune That Lies Hidden In Your Smile
Most of us are unaware of our everyday facial expressions… unless we’re laughing, crying, angry or sad. Even then we may not really be aware of how we look or the message we are sending. If you stop for a minute right now and look in the mirror and analyze your dominant facial expression…what do you see?
Your Facial Expression…Is it Yin or Yang?
The way that we carry our face is an expression of our inner minds and hearts and indicates the strength of yin or yang chi within us. When we display yang chi or positive chi it can be great yang, bright yang or lesser yang… and these three levels reveal the amount of positive essence in your hidden nature. Yang faces are smiling faces… but as we know there are many kinds of smiles! When you are truly joyous your face reflects bright yang which is well-balanced. Not quite so happy – a reduced level of joy with some yin entering reflects lesser yang. Great yang reflects an excess of joy…almost to the point of being a bit smug.
Yin faces on the other hand reflect negativity, depression or boredom and usually manifest as sad or unhappy expressions. A great yin expression may be one of grief while lesser yin reflects mild sadness or anger. Some facial expressions contain both yin and yang…like angry faces are often described a yin turning yan.
So now let’s go back to the mirror and your dominant expression… because you’ll also need to look at the shape of your face! Right… there are five basic shape faces and each is ruled by one of the five elements. Your face shape reveals a lot about your personality and careers that might work for you!
What Element Rules Your Face?
WOOD ELEMENT FACE: – long, oval or oblong shaped. You’re usually optimistic with natural elegance and work well alone but you’re also a team player. When you wear a yang expression your optimism exudes with enthusiasm and you’re the star! You’ll do well in industries involving communication with others. When you carry a yin expression you look more serious and conservative… so you’re not in the forefront but the brains behind another individual or project.
FIRE ELEMENT FACE: – triangular or heart-shaped. You have powerful and hidden ambitions and when you wear a bright yang face you are charming and can persuade others to your way of thinking. When you adopt a yin expression… especially a lesser yin face you look somewhat mysterious…even irresistible.
METAL ELEMENT FACE: – it’s round shaped. When you smile you attract good luck but if your face is dominated by yin expressions you project a perpetual look of depression. You’re quite inflexible and like others to accommodate you. You’re focus and single-minded – especially about wealth creation and you don’t socialize easily.
EARTH ELEMENT FACE: – square-shaped. Your face looks full and stable – in fact you emit an aura of strength and stability. Your temperament is even and you don’t lose your cool easily… you always show the best side of yourself. You keep things to yourself… you’re private by nature and usually successful in your line of work. Although you may appear a bit “detached” you’re really very aware and pick up everything that is going on around you.
WATER ELEMENT FACE: – curvy face with high cheek bones and rounded slightly protruding foreheads.
You’re an extrovert by nature and don’t anger easily. You’re witty and find success in the entertainment or communication industries. Somehow smiles don’t work as well for water faces as for the other elements.
Discover the Fortune Of Your Smile
So consider your expression… each time you’re angry or scowling… what kind of yin energy are you showing to the world? On the other hand nothing melts a person’s heart more than when you smile at them with genuine happiness and pleasure. Remember… if you want to charm or impress someone begin with a smile… become conscious of your facial expressions. Try it. When you display genuine yang chi to the world you will attract much good fortune!
Many people ask me why I seem so happy all of the time? It’s because I am…and my facial expression usually reflects bright yang energy!
Try smiling more this week and see what happens!
P.S. So keep smiling everyone!
I read this quote from here.
“Feng Shui is a language of symbols. Change the symbol; transform your life. The absolute only thing written in stone: I create my own destiny.”
This is definitely true. I have been a “follower” of Feng Shui for so many years now and the thing that is always dominant is the need for having new symbols every year – which I have to tell you costs a whole lot. Feng Shui is not cheap. Well, the amulets for that matter. Why do I follow it? I’m not really sure. Probably because I’m fascinated with it – the meanings and all. But if you ask me if it works, I can’t really say anything about that. I have been asking for something and it still hasn’t happened. So I don’t know. But I know of a lot of people who have stories about Feng Shui and how it worked for them. Honestly, I get a little envious about how wishes and dreams for other people do come true, and for me, it hasn’t.
This bracelet, I got around February – the height of the Feng Shui hype here in the Philippines because of the Chinese New Year. This bangle is made out of silver plated metal alloy which features the 12 different animal signs.
To learn more about the story of the 12 animal signs, you can click here.
This accessory helps improve relationships, enhance and optimize one’s network, reduce conflict with other animal signs and encourage harmonious encounters with other people regardless of animal signs. Also increases luck in love, friendships, business and career. This Feng Shui item is guaranteed to be pre-cleansed with a Tibetan Singing Bowl to activate optimum positive “Qi” Energy and bless it with the right positive energy.
Who is this product for?
This is actually for anyone who either believes in Feng Shui or is fascinated with Chinese art. You can always think of it as cool accessory as opposed to being a Feng Shui cure.
Where to buy?

So, what have you been up to lately? Well, it was a holiday last Monday and I had the very awesome chance to experience Chinese New Year at its best at the Manila Hotel.
That night was super fun because it was hosted by Manila’s Queen of Feng Shui Maritess Allen and Manila’s King of Talk Boy Abunda. I guess what is amazing to me is that most of the people who attended were actually Filipinos. I know that it might sound a bit weird but I do believe in Feng Shui because I believe in balance – just like how I believe in Yoga. If you ask me if Feng Shui worked for me, well, I can’t really give you a straight answer because I don’t have a BIG story yet. Maybe, it’ll come, I don’t know. But this I have to tell you, I am truly fascinated with it.
Feng Shui Items
I can’t really remember when I started to have Feng Shui Items. I would probably guess that I’ve had some items since around 2005. It started with the lucky bracelets from Charms and Crystals (which before were around PHP2,800 and now it’s a whopping PHP6,800 per bracelet!!) and graduated to World of Feng Shui items by Lillian Too. The good (well, not so good, I guess) thing about the Lillian Too items is that a lot of people have their own versions so you can get them cheaper – but I guess it would still be pretty expensive.
Personally, I have the following for this year:
Blue Rhino and Elephant (around PHP500)
This keychain works as a talisman to protect you from the nasty effects of the violent number 7 star – which is said to afflict the boar this year. This particular star is said to manifest itself in the form of robbery, car accidents or someone cheating you of something or someone that is rightfully yours (in other words “ahas” – English translation: snake).
Nightspot Talisman Amulet (around PHP500)
This particular amulet brings protection against all sorts of harm and people with bad intentions. Highly recommended for those who work late at the office or those who frequent nightspots or as well as those who have to entertain clients or a travel a lot.
I bought this particular amulet because I am scheduled to travel this month and next month and it wouldn’t hurt right? 🙂
Well, here are just a few reminders if you have these items:
Anyway, I hope this helps especially for people who are born on the year of the boar and for those people who travel a lot. If you have any comments, questions or suggestions, please feel free to email me. I will try to research more about Feng Shui for you. 😉
