Seriously clearing clutter again

The usual feng shui cliché for study area is have lights, unclutter and tidy up. When comes to feng shui tips is always “clearing clutter” omg. If that is the case then you don’t need to engage a feng shui master, employing a helper make more sense.

If the space is available you only need to place the study desk and automatically your child’s concentration will improve, no items are necessary.

2. Annual flying star “1” or “4” positions

Using Annual flying star principle is one of the easiest and most effective method to activate study. Take this year 2014, annual flying star 4 is in the centre sector and 1 in South-West sector.

If one can position the study table at the sector where annual flying star 1 or 4 lands the “learning” energy is already activated. Nowadays is so convenient one can use the laptop at the annual wen chang sector

The impact of annual flying star is fast and yield positive results for quick fix like critical years PSLE, GCE O Level, GCE A Level. The impact is for one year therefore the influence is rapid. Just a word of caution, it is best for your interest to check your Home destiny feng shui before activating this. 

3. Child day of birth 日主天干

This method uses bazi profiling to locate study area. It is permanent and last forever. You don’t have to place any additional enhancement if you are able to place the study table. However if you wanted to enhance further you can match the 5 element of the sector. Below is the Chinese script to identify the location of feng shui study segment.

4. Home destiny flying star method

This method you have to know your Home Destiny Energy Map. Among the 4 methods this is one of the most effective. The following flying star combos that meet this criteria are:

14 or 41 at a particular sector 四一同宫 科发之名 (FSM clients can check their Home Destiny charts)

四属木巽卦 wood,一属水坎卦 water,水能生木,木入坎宫代表凤池身贵,声名显赫。

6 & 1 combo 虛聯奎壁,啟八代之文章 status and reputation 

9 & 4 combo 木见火而生聪明之士 better suited for creativity, arts and humanities

On the other hand these are the sectors that you should avoid using as study because it dulls the mind and make us more retarded.

9 & 2 combo or 9 & 5 combo 生愚钝顽夫 meets getting stupid ,无家室之相依

Parents high expectations resulting in loss of motivation from your child

In Singapore, it is understandable that as parent you will want your child to be the best. It is easy for you as parents to set high standards and demand for an “A” from your child during examinations. However, as parents you must understand the repercussions of setting unrealistic expectations.

Just imagine putting yourself in your child’s shoes. If your boss gives you a target which is impossible to meet. You will most probably lose motivation because no matter how hard you try, you will not be able to satisfy him or her. Similarly, this is how your children might feel.

before closing this post please allow me to quote this poem from Su Shi 苏轼

人皆养子望聪明  我被聪明误一生
惟愿孩儿愚且鲁  无灾无难到公卿

sometimes as parents we have to “learn” to accept our child’s talents maybe elsewhere instead of academic pursue.

Su Shi 苏 轼 also known as 苏 东破 dongpo, was a Chinese scholar-official, active as a poet, essayist, calligrapher and painter during the Song dynasty
