You might have read some of my previous articles on feng shui and the 5-element pagoda. One of my favorite feng shui items, the 5-element pagoda, provides a measure of protection that is truly amazing. For all of those people who wonder what in the world happened to them-what turned their lives upside down all of a sudden-investigating how this pagoda works would be a good idea. In fact, this pagoda might be considered the number ONE item to purchase when moving into a new place.
Perhaps relating some of my personal experiences with this nifty device might aid understanding of those vagrant energies that cause havoc. First of all, energy is and energy moves around; it’s part of life. Whether you call it good or bad energy, vibes, chi, voodoo, or quantum physics, it’s all the same. The trick is to bring lots of good energy in and keep the bad energy out. The masters of feng shui observed and played with these energies and came up with some terrific tools to give us some control over them. In the Flying Star school of thought, certain specific types are given names. There are four auspicious and four inauspicious stars, the worst of which is the #5 Yellow Star of Misfortune, closely followed by the #2 Black Star of Illness. The pagoda of five elements, with its mantra of protection, is the cure (see my previous articles for more information on this).
