1. Your name and what city/town do you live?

Edgar Lok Tin Yung. I live in North Balwyn, Melbourne Victoria.

  1. How long have you been practicing Feng Shui?

17 years.

  1. What is the most misconception that you have come across about Feng Shui?

Is number 4 bad? I come across a few asking me is number 4 bad. It is a misconception in Feng Shui. Most people mix up traditional Feng Shui with beliefs or cultural beliefs.

The Qi, aka. energy, it does not know and can’t see what is your house number. As long as there is a opening, the Qi will come in. Most people think that place a flute or a three legged toad can bring good luck and wealth. It is not that easy. People think that after taking a five days Feng Shui course, then they can go out there and practice.

  1. What would you like to see happen/change in the Australian Feng Shui industry?

Of course, I would like to see the professionalism of our industry. Be recognised by the main stream. Incorporating Feng Shui with building design. Everyone should knows some basic Feng Shui principals to prevent themselves get into some sort of troubles. Educate the general public that a Feng Shui consultants need to learn a lot of stuff.

  1. What don’t you like about the Feng Shui industry?

There are not enough clarity. There is a lot of mix message to general public. Different views among the Feng Shui consultants. Some consultants using scare tactics to con innocent people. Feng Shui consultants should try their best to help their clients. First do no harm. Feng Shui consultant is like a doctor in different aspects. They should have take a “Feng Shui Hippocratic Oath”.

  1. Who do you most admire/respect in the Feng Shui industry and why?

I really admire those who try their best to learn, to contribute and to help their clients. I admire those who practices traditional Feng Shui. I admire those who helps their clients with all they can. I admire those who share their knowledge. I admire those who willing to teach. I admire those who help the needs.

  1. What is a seminar that you would love to attend?

Any Feng Shui and Chinese astrology seminars that can help me further enhance my knowledge and skills.

  1. What is your favourite Feng Shui book?

I don’t have one. I read a lot of books. I read different schools of Feng Shui books. There are a different theories. The most I know the more flexible I can apply feng shui to different built environment.

  1. Describe your first Feng Shui Consultation.

I forgot my first Feng Shui consult. But I do remember my first Chinese Astrology consultation back in 1999. The Client was a Taiwanese’s lady. Halfway during the consult, in that afternoon, the whole suburb I lived then was black out. The electricity supply for the whole area was cut.

  1. What is your favourite type of Consultation and why?

Agree with George no more. I like to consult project starting from scratch. It is much easy and effective than someone has already built their home and call me into to fix their their issue or issues.

Feng Shui should be involved in any building project from the begging to ensure everyone benefits from it.

  1. Tell us about a Consultation that you are most proud of or enjoyed the most (no names).

Countless, I have helped clients with fertility issue and after applying Feng Shui for them. They were able to conceive. There are handful of parents they thank me very much forever. There was another case happened in mid 2014. A client came to see me to find out if he should continues flight for a court case with a company 100 odd times bigger than him. After checking his Bazi, despite that he has spent nearly a million dollars in fee. I suggested he should keep fighting. eventually in early 2016. He won the case and got millions of compensation.

  1. What is the furthest you have travelled for a client consultation?

Shanghai China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia I have clients there. The furtherest is Shanhai in China.

  1. If you weren’t a Feng Shui practitioner, what is another job you would like to do?

Well, I was a marketing and sales manager while I was working in Hong Kong. If I were not a Feng Shui consultant, I would be starting my own marketing company.

I also like to teach. I am starting to organising my Qigong class.

  1. What are you working on this week?
  1. 2 x Chinese Astrology readings.
  2. 2 x Date selection, one for an auction date to achieve good result and one for an existing client who is getting marry.
  3. 2 x Feng Shui consults one for an exiting client. One for a new client.
  4. What is your perfect idea of happiness?

Contentment and be able to help others.

  1. What is your favourite music that you are listening to at the moment?

No music at the moment. I am too concentrate to the questions. I do listen to a lot of different type of music. I listen to light music. As I play Chinese flute, of course I listen to bamboo flute music. I am starting to like Gugin music. I may go to learn it.

MAY 2016 – George Bennis

1. Your name and what city/town do you live?

George Bennis and I live in the rural oasis of Maleny

2. How long have you been practicing Feng Shui?

Since about 1993-94

3. What is the most misconception that you have come across about Feng Shui?

The biggest misconception I find is that, people think that all they have to do is put certain objects in areas that relate to each aspect of their life and that those objects will fix the problems in their life. They think that all houses are the same and that all you need is a jade plant at the door and it will fix your finances. They think that putting objects like a money frog, a laughing buddha , lucky bamboo will bring good fortune and solve all their problems.

4. What would you like to see happen/change in the Australian Feng Shui industry?=

I’d like to see Feng Shui become an integrated aspect of the architecture / design, building and construction industry.
I’d like to see practitioners value themselves and the art they practise, by charging fees that are equivalent to the years of study and the monetary investment it takes to become a professional practitioner. I think there should be a minimum recommended fee structure, in the industry. I’d like to see more men come in to the industry.

5. What don’t you like about the Feng Shui industry?

The things I don’t like include:

1. Factionalism 
The industry is often divided into camps based upon, who consultants have studied with.

2. Gossip is a very destructive force and is often based on misinformation. I have seen it cause people to leave the industry. Some consultants use it as a form of negative marketing in order to boost their own market share by bad mouthing another consultants.

3. Misinformation
The public doesn’t really know what Feng Shui is, partly because of the marketing of bauble and trinkets. Partly because of Chinese superstitions and one size fits all, quick fixes as well as the influence of the New Age movement.

4. Financially Unsustainable
The industry has many part-time / hobby consultants. Industries dominated by part-timers are generally, unsustainable financially. I have seen many people drop out of the industry because they are unable to make a living from it.

5. Lack of Recognition
Feng Shui is not recognised as a legitimate art / science. The lack of recognition prevents it from being adopted as a legitimate design tool by the building and design industries as well as being accepted by the public.

6. Who do you most admire/respect in the Feng Shui industry and why?

Feng Shui is an honourable profession. Feng shui helps people to live better lives by designing better living environments. I admire everyone who is doing their best to make this precious art know.
I admire the Chinese teachers who first bought this art to Australia and to the West. I admire the pioneers of this industry, people who stating learning and practising Feng Shui in Australia in the early to mid 90’s. They blazed a path were there was none. They withstood ridicule, often from the public, the building industry and their own families and friends. Finally I admire “The Ancients” who bought this knowledge to the world.

7. What is a seminar that you would love to attend?

If I could travel back in time I’d love to learn from the Masters of all Masters, Yang Yung Song and Jiang Da Hong. I’d also love to attend Advanced Ba Zi, live with Master Joseph Yu and Qi Men Dun Jia with Masters Eduardo Hess and Dr Ying Li

8. What is your favourite Feng Shui book?

The annotations of the classics by Master Joseph Yu

9. Describe your first Feng Shui Consultation.

My first consultation was before I knew any compass applications. It was a gymnasium in Double Bay. The business had a poison arrow in front of the door so I advised them to place a large planter box between the pole and the doorway. I had learnt dowsing and crystals, so I dowsed where the TanTien was and advised them to hang a single terminator clear quartz crystal above the spot where I had dowsed. I programmed the crystal to attract prosperity and love and light, as you do in the new age way. Within 2 weeks the gym had a massive influx of new clients, all of them single women between 25 – 35. The gym owner reckoned I’d put too much of my own energy in the programming. Lol. The first compass school consultation was probably my mother’s house or my old unit in Bronte, Sydney. There is not enough room here to describe these consultations, however I will say that when I did my family home all the family skeletons came out of the closet that day. The Flying Star chart had totally described the life experiences in that house. I will never forget the look on my mother’s face when I described the star combinations in that house. She looked at me as if I had unlocked the door to some hidden secrets. She was right.

10. What is your favourite type of Consultation and why?

Site Selection and Ground-Up building design on large acreage, is my favourite, because it is how feng shui is supposed to be used. 
When you assist people to find the right location for them based on the forms, their birth data, and their occupations, you can design a home that is tailor made to them. In this style of consultation I use all my feng shui knowledge and applications. I become a part of the creative design process, like a conductor of an orchestra directing the design process. It challenges and inspires me like no other type of consultation

11. Tell us about a Consultation that you are most proud of or enjoyed the most (no names).

My favourites are either consulting for an entire primary school of 15 buildings with about half a dozen classrooms from the ground-up. The testimonial from the Principle is on my website

Working with my Architect friend to design her dream home that won the AFSC “Best residential Design” award.

Or the 800 acre retreat centre for an International ‘Spiritual” teacher which included, rearranging his private Accommodation. relocating the admin centre, designing the entry and exit positions of the amphitheatre, surveying the entire site for the best locations for conference centre etc etc.

There was also the case of the single mum who’s young son had ADHD and I simply moved his room from 5-9 combination to 4-9 with spectacular results. but as you fellow consultants know, this is a regular occurrence

12. What is the furtherest you have travelled for a client consultation?

I have travelled to the North East coast of the USA over 16000 Km

My friend invited me to be the best man at his wedding and to help with all the problems he was having in his life and his relationship. It turned out that the house was haunted and the occupants claimed to have been abducted by Aliens. The house faced one of the 8 evil lines.

13. If you weren’t a Feng Shui practitioner, what is another job you would like to do?

I’d be a Singer / composer / pianist. In fact, I have recorded a single. I’d also like to do acting, especially comedies.

14. What are you working on this week?

I am doing a Site Selection / Ground-up design for a couple. I am using Fying Star, Da Gua, Ming Gua, Melodic Elements, Qi Men Dun Jia, Ba Zi, San He and the Hexagram Method for these clients. It has been a very intense set of calculations to determine what is best for this couple. There are multiple challenges in determining these charts and bringing them together.

At this stage the house will most likely be a pavilion style design with each pavilion coming off the main house, based on the hexagrams and Ming guas for each person. 

I am also doing 4pIllar readings for a couple of people. I am also recording my Module 2 Advanced Flying Stars Online course

15. What is your perfect idea of happiness?

Lying on a hammock, in the middle of a Forrest, with warm sunshine and a gentle breeze blowing in my face, listening to the sounds of the Ocean in the distance, whilst reading a good book, and holding hands with the woman of my dreams.

16. What is your favourite music that you are listening to at the moment?

I have recently purchased a 1981 Vintage Marantz Stereo. With that I have finally opened by box of records I packed when I left my home town in 2000. Some of those records I have not listened to since the late 1980’s. so I am now listening to the golden oldies of my youth. Joy Divison, The Cure, The Jam, The Clash, The Hipslingers, Stiff Little Fingers and The Damned

1. Your name and what city/town do you live?
My name is Gayle Atherton and I live in Sydney

2. How long have you been practicing Feng Shui?
24 years

3. What is the most misconception that you have come across about Feng Shui? 
The biggest Misconception in Feng Shui still lies within the marketing of Feng Shui and the outline of what Feng Shui actually is. 

In its infancy (in the west) Feng Shui was marketed really badly and its very hard to fix that. 

Most people would bulk if they really knew what was involved with real Feng Shui. 

These days I don’t try to fix this. I just try to listen to my client, what they are asking for and what they want to get out of Feng Shui. Then I apply the application of Feng Shui that would work for what they want… 🙂

4. What would you like to see happen/change in the Australian Feng Shui industry?
I would love to see unity and respect for each other – no matter where someone is up to with it.

5. What don’t you like about the Feng Shui industry?
Comparison. Comparison of Feng Shui applications and comparison of people who practice.

6. Who do you most admire/respect in the Feng Shui industry and why?
People who are earnest about this study. Learning Feng Shui is not a five minute thing and people who are earnest contribute more because they are more humble and this makes them create positive energy in their study.

7. What is a seminar that you would love to attend?
I love Qi Men Dun Jia, Eight Mansions and I love Xuan Kong Da Gua so I will attend these seminars any day… Otherwise I love attending Meditation seminars that can really get to the crux of the technique.

8. What is your favourite Feng Shui book?
Mmmm… I don’t really have a normal book that I love… But I probably do love the Qi Men Dun Jia Compendium by Joey Yap. Lots of info in that book..

9. Describe your first Feng Shui Consultation.
My first every Feng Shui Consultation was on my own home. Back in those days I was nursing at the Children’s hospital in Camperdown and living pretty close to the edge financially and so was my housemate. I’d been at a party where a couple of friends were telling me about the Feng Shui guy that came through and fixed their bank (they were merchant bankers). When I heard the story it gave me a lot of realization about the bad energies in our house. Back in those days there was only 1 or 2 books out in the marketplace. When my housemate said yes to me trying some Feng Shui I used to experiment a lot with the flow of Chi. 

Firstly, it really helped that I was a Yogi (back in those days for around 8 years). So I fiddled and fiddled and fiddled closely watching the flow of chi until the energy changed in our building (and I mean it really changed). Suddenly, my friend (an out of work actress of 4 years) had acting jobs coming out of the wood work and for me my business started by accident! Once I fixed my own house – all my friends wanted me to come to their house and they wanted to pay me (and here I was thinking what’s wrong with my friends.. pay me???). So that’s how my business started and from there I went to Hong Kong because the jobs were getting more serious and I thought I really have to to learn how to do this properly… 🙂

10. What is your favourite type of Consultation and why?
Qi Men Dun Jia forecasting, Bazi Forecasting and Forecasting through looking at someones current Feng Shui. I love knowing absolutely nothing about a persons situation and then being able to track it accurately (including the outcome). Its a buzz.

11. Tell us about a Consultation that you are most proud of or enjoyed the most (no names).
I have always been a “fixer” in Feng Shui. I think a very good thing I did once was fix a little girls room when her parents didn’t care if she was in a 2 5 combination (1 Kua), had raging asthma and was continually getting hospitalized (they refused to move her). I was really pleased to fix her situation and help her cope/get beyond something that was terrifying (nothing worse than not being able to breathe right).

12. What is the furtherest you have travelled for a client consultation?
15,000 kms

13. If you weren’t a Feng Shui practitioner, what is another job you would like to do? 
I was a nurse before Feng Shui. Would probably progress to being a Meditation Teacher (which is what I’m doing now in my spare time for the past 30+ years)…

14. What are you working on this week?
1. I have one client (a developer) who has started a new job (large apartment complex) and he has had legal break out on the job (with his client). I am tracking it with Qi Men.
2. I am finishing a job for a client in the USA who has health issues and an ongoing legal situation (Qi Men, 8 Mansions, XKDG, Flying Stars)
3. I am working on a client who needs to activate the good energies in their building so that she can attract a buyer for the building (Qi Men, 8 Mansions, XKDG, Flying Stars).
4. I have an old client (that I helped to get a record sale of their previous house) that purchased a new house. We have a couple of hours to go in and check out the house and do readings (Qi Men, 8 Mansions, XKDG, Flying Stars).
5. I had a client (another developer) partially consult me for a new section add-on of their building but he would not let me continue with my Qi Men, 8 Mansions, XKDG, Flying Stars calculations. Instead he just went ahead and did a “logical” fit-out instead. His logical fit out has turned bad (as I said it would) and I got the SOS call for help as soon as I touched down from India. Went in today, resisted the opportunity to say “I told you so” (not helpful) – just smiled instead and said I will fix it.
6. Have a different client in the USA who is moving house and am helping her to decide which building…
7. I am about to do another early morning activation of a clients building because he has perfect Feng Shui this year and is launching some big things. Have already looked up his date and will go in early morning to activate.
8. Am about to get my strategic activation video on the road (coz I lost the whole lot on the webinar!!)
9. Am about to start the extra webinar for all my Yearly Stars people.
10. I am doing the Flying Stars for one of my Long Standing Yearly Stars customer. This year she has turned that golden 60, she’s never had Feng Shui done before and wants to treat herself, I will likely throw in a few more applications of Feng Shui to make her Feng Shui really good 🙂 
11. I have a few other things on the boil (and a book I am finalizing on Meditation).

15. What is your perfect idea of happiness?
Being Content with myself and accepting of others.

16. What is your favourite music that you are listening to at the moment?
Music by Lucinda Drayton and Andy Blissett (the Band’s Name is called Bliss). 
Lucinda has a pitch perfect voice, her words are meaningful and their music is soothing. 

1. One Hundred Thousand Angels…
2. Through these Eyes…
3. You…
4. Bliss…

  1. Your name and what city/town do you live?

Perrie Burton – Living on the Gold Coast, Queensland Australia

  1. How long have you been practicing Feng Shui?

16+ years full time

  1. What is the most misconception that you have come across about Feng Shui?

That Feng Shui is one size fits all, and that the client has to wholeheartedly believe in it.

Additionally that you have to be of Asian descent to practice Feng Shui.

Fortunately these misconceptions are not so much the norm as Feng Shui is becoming more recognized and frequently in the media.

  1. What would you like to see happen/change in the Australian Feng Shui industry?

I would like to see Feng Shui consulting to be considered as a mainstream profession, recognized and valued within the construction industry.

To encourage architects to consider implementing Feng Shui principles into their building design.

Also I would like to see a more professional approach and a higher profile emanating from within our Feng Shui community.

An increase in full time practitioners instead of part time hobbyists that sometimes haven’t kept up to date with the industry changes or training.

Business development is very important in any industry, Feng Shui is no exception.

A small number of practitioners have the misconception that lots of certificates are a gauge to success.

Practice your craft, conduct research, continue to learn and document your results it will be a path to success,

however making a real difference to people’s lives is the most satisfying aspect of our work.

  1. What don’t you like about the Feng Shui industry?

I don’t like the mistaken belief of , the “Franchise – like” study with ONLY one Feng Shui Master, knowledge needs to be from more that one source or Master!

The false impression that practicing Feng Shui cannot lead to a viable career and income.

With personal application, sound training and business development, Feng Shui can be as rewarding as any other business .

  1. Who do you most admire/respect in the Feng Shui industry and why?

I admire those that conduct themselves with professionalism, humility and above all kindness ,

I’m very mindful of the following :

Every social media comment, every judgment made on other practitioners whether good or not so good…

our actions tell a story about one’s own character …

I respect and admire my colleagues that have a positive effect on others in the industry …

  1. What is a seminar that you would love to attend?

Qi Men Dun Jia and more BaZi .

Any seminars with Master Joseph Yu or Dato Joye Yap,

and new person on my list Sherry Merchant from India

  1. What is your favourite Feng Shui book?

The Idiots Guide on Feng Shui

3rd Edition by Joseph Yu

Steven Skinner ; Flying Stars

David Twicken; Flying Stars

  1. Describe your first Feng Shui Consultation.

It was a Retail Store in one of the shopping centres in Brisbane, a person I knew and they trusted me with their store that was struggling financially.

I was very lucky that the client implemented all of my recommendations and got a clear results to the changes made.

The positive outcome led me to ‘feng shui’ the store next door which also experienced great results.

Needless to say, my clients homes followed quickly.

I was very fortunate to get such a positive start.

  1. What is your favourite type of Consultation and why?

Naturally ‘from the ground-up projects’ are my favourite,

but more and more these days I’m enjoying consulting for large national companies with offices in a number of cities and other countries .

  1. Tell us about a Consultation that you are most proud of or enjoyed the most (no names).

I worked on a intricate home in a Eco-development where the builders and Architects had to follow very specific building codes incorporating sustainable building practices only.

It took nearly 18 months of deliberation and consultation to successfully incorporate the relevant Eco sustainable requirements with the Feng Shui principles that the project needed.

Fortunately the result was a most exquisite home, extremely happy clients and a continuing working relationship with both the builder and the architect .

I learned all about patience in that 18 months…

  1. What is the furtherest you have travelled for a client consultation?

All around Australia and Singapore number of times.

I do get asked to consult further a field but I normally refer the clients to their locally known practitioners.

  1. If you weren’t a Feng Shui practitioner, what is another job you would like to do?

Cannot imagine my life without Feng Shui, perhaps studying Psychology – I’m fascinated with the human behaviour and the mind …

  1. What are you working on this week?

I’m currently working on an 2 office floors project for an International Company in the centre of Singapore ( I will be there again in January 2017 ).

Also a tear down house with a new large home to be built ( March 2017) in its place… the design is tight on the block and the Architect is trying to preserve a large old ‘boab’ tree on the block without moving it and make it fit beautifully with the home and the landscaping.

Additionally a client developer is relocating his company in a new building with his 60+ staff, so I’m working on the allocations and positions of the key offices, boardrooms, training rooms, staff seating and orientations in the new premises.

Preparing for my presentation to speak at the 2016 IFSA Conference in Melbourne in less than a fortnight.

As well as getting ready for my new group of students 2016/2017 , 12 month Practitioner Training starting in early October as soon as I get back from Melbourne.

  1. What is your perfect idea of happiness?

My family being happy and healthy, spending time with friends, walking on the beach with my husband and our dog, reading , having a massage, time alone…organic chocolate !!!!

  1. What is your favourite music that you are listening to at the moment?

I like a variety of music from Van Morrison to Black-eyed Peas and Coldplay.

Just back from Bali where I only listen to Snatam Kaur …

1. Your name and what city/town do you live?

Derelle Ball SE QLD

2. How long have you been practicing Feng Shui?

16 years professionally

3. What is the most misconception that you have come across about Feng Shui?

Some people mistakenly think feng shui is a type of witch craft or religion or the practice of simply placing good luck objects around the home.

4. What would you like to see happen/change in the Australian Feng Shui industry?

I’m actually quite happy with the progress I’ve seen in this industry since I joined professionally back in 2000. The internet allows us to communicate, teach and mentor with much greater ease and our annual conferences just keep getting better and more informative with all the additional work shops and case studies presented. I have made some wonderful life long friendships with fellow feng shui colleagues, students and clients and I appreciate having access to such a rich and vast pool of knowledge and experience via our networks and connections through organisations like the AFSC, so, really I’d like to see this progression continue to grow

5. What don’t you like about the Feng Shui industry?

Over commercialization of trinkets leading to confusion as to what feng shui is really about.

6. Who do you most admire/respect in the Feng Shui industry and why?

When I first began my feng shui journey in 1994 I voraciously read the feng shui magazines and any books and articles I could find and greatly admired the case studies presented by Jodi Brunner. I remember being quite star struck when I attended a Dynamic Xuan Kong Feng Shui Seminar by Master Joseph Yu and Jodi sat in the chair beside me. We became good friends over the years and this has been replicated with many similar friendships that have developed along the way while studying and practicing this fascinating metaphysical science. I have since studied with a variety of Masters here in Australia, Malaysia and Hong Kong and they have all taught me unique aspects which have enriched my understanding and practice of Xuan Kong Feng Shui.

7. What is a seminar that you would love to attend?

Right now I am getting quite deep into 4 pillars and experimenting with many different ways of looking at a health analysis as well as researching unique ways in which to help clients work out their best career path, so anything along these lines is most appealing to me at present.

8. What is your favourite Feng Shui book?

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Feng Shui – 3rd Edition has always been a favourite recommendation to beginner students, although it is now difficult to locate unless you can get a second hand copy, and ideally it would be great to have a new version updated for the current Period of 8 in the Combinations of Stars section.

9. Describe your first Feng Shui Consultation.

My home and family was the first port of call because I figured if you can’t effectively ensure positive change in your own home and life’s circumstances then you cannot expect to effectively help other people.

10. What is your favourite type of Consultation and why?

I love doing your typical family home or family business. I’m a Cancerian/Goat so naturally very maternal and I tend to embrace clients as part of my extended family. I have a lot of clients who began with me back in the early 2000’s and still come back regularly for annual updates and/or renovations or when seeking a new home and I love watching them grow and develop and following their career and family journey while offering feng shui and astrology advice to help them along their way.

11. Tell us about a Consultation that you are most proud of or enjoyed the most (no names).

I love what I do so really there are no favourites. I tend to get engrossed in each and every consult and subsequent detailed report of recommendations.

12. What is the furtherest you have travelled for a client consultation?

Well, apart from a lot of off-site consults for clients overseas (including New York and Scotland), I’ve been flown interstate a number of times (including outback NSW, Darwin, Margaret River in WA).

13. If you weren’t a Feng Shui practitioner, what is another job you would like to do?

Psychology and Neuro Linguistic Programming

14. What are you working on this week?

Currently working on an off-site consult for a proposed hostel development in Chile, a heap of on-going property investor pre-purchase reports, I’ll be helping a lady position and activate a water feature for a home I helped her design from the ground up in North Lakes and I have a space clearing at an acupuncture clinic in Brissy coming up as well.

15. What is your perfect idea of happiness?

Financial freedom of time to do what you want and when you want with those you love the most, while enjoying excellent health and harmony in your living and working environment.

16. What is your favourite music that you are listening to at the moment?

Currently have been listening to Missy Higgins, David Bowie and Tommy Emmanuel
