Secrets of the Fortune Bell - Amy Zerner and Monte Farber
“Our belief in the efficacy of feng shui does not come from the psychic realm or from pure faith but from trying the practice ourselves and discovering that it works. We saw proof that hanging our wind chime in various places in our home coincided with positive happenings relating to the area of life associated with that particular area of our home.” – From the book
The ancient Chinese art of feng shui, a word translated to mean “wind and water”, promotes the free-flow of energy in buildings, landscapes and rooms. Also know as chi (pronounced chee), this vital energy can flow too quickly or become blocked altogether. According to the principles of feng shui, the removal or addition of certain objects or practices enhances health, relationships, finances, creativity and fortune.
Created by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber, the Secrets of the Fortune Bell kit combines several time-honored feng shui remedies, including symbols, color, meaningful Chinese characters and the celestial cure of the wind chime.
The box set comes with a 25-page companion booklet explaining the nine life areas of the Ba Gua map, the eleven symbols on the fortune bell chime, and twelve essential feng shui tips. The eleven symbols on the chime are:
• Kuan Yin
• Mystic Knot
• Chinese Characters
• Chinese Almanac
For example, Amy and Monte detail the meaning of the Scissors, which aids in discernment, attention to detail, and the ability to cut out negative influences that threaten well-being.
The Secrets of the Fortune Bell employs the Dragon Door school of feng shui, which is much easier to practice than the compass method. This means that the Ba Gua map, beautifully illustrated in the companion book, orients according to a building or room’s front (or main) door. (With the compass school of feng shui, the calculations are much more tedious.) Thus, even if you’re not familiar with the Ba Gua, the Enchanted Couple makes the philosophy accessible and the fortune bell practically out-of-the-box useful.
Secrets of the Fortune Bell will not only add beauty to your environment and serve as a focal point for your intentions, but also counter negative energy and support harmonious living.
