Looking back, and thanking my Followers for 2020



[Looking back, and thanking my Followers for 2020]
 
Dear Followers!

We are into the new year, we are already in the Metal-Ox year 辛丑年.

Happy New Year!!

The past year has been very exciting, a lot of dramatic and grand developments. Once again, we showed what it means to be the leader of the industry -- fengshui, arts, even Chinese culture, what it means to be a solid beacon of prosperity and happiness, what it means to be really great and living great.

With the spirit of always looking for solutions, as like how we constantly look for ways to boost your luck, we morphed the ways we do things, we upgraded the structure of the Fellowship, we invested even more into the value we give back to our faithful clients.

And it was a most fulfilling year for Lotus on Water. We have always been creating bests, and they were actually just "best year SO FAR". 2020 Metal-Rat year, was also a best year for the Lotus.

So far, of course.

Our Fellowship is definitely very crucial to the stunning success. We have new friends who joined the Fellowship, we "cleaned" our house of those who do not share the same values as us, we have improved the quality of our members.

Certainly, there is still much work to progress, and I am sure it will be rewarding for all of us, on many different levels.

Great great thanks to Followers who kept bringing new friends to join the Lotus Family. 2020 was most probably the year, so far, when we had the most new clients. (Please keep them coming!)

My gratitude also goes to Followers who are always at the galleries, helping us to speak to fellow clients, encouraging them, sharing your knowledge and recommendations. We see a lot of new clients progressing fast, through your help, and the weekly Modules that Gerard's team conducted spectacularly.

A lot of weekly operations were also taken up by Sir Yip and Pook's teams. The LIVEs, the bigger virtual celebrations. We come together to reach to more people, opening our doors in a different way.

And so, our Fellowship, while we can be close-knit, we are always open to expand the Lotus Family.

I thank YOU once again, and I hope that through these start-of-year reflections, you are once again filled with grander dreams and aspirations.

Have a powerful Ox year!

[Photo from one year ago, the gallery was so crowded with Followers when we were doing a quick recap and toast after a mega event, let's see when we can gather again!]

So, what's in store for us in this 2021 Metal-Ox year 辛丑年?

 
It has been a while since I blogged, if you don't count my rather long Facebook posts...time after lockdown has been super intense, and the achievements we unlocked (gaming lingo) unimaginable and magical. All the awards, the Great Wall of China fengshui art exhibition...it's really not something that can be attained by copying others. Imitation is soulless. So are the words of imitators, hollow.
 
The leap of Lotus on Water in 2020 Metal-Rat year 庚子年 is beyond exponential, it's fueled and propelled by years of solid work and a passionate spirit. Luxury requires a passionate spirit. Our future and fortune require a passionate spirit.
 
 
Our blessings require a genuine and passionate spirit.
 
But I digressed.
 
2021's January flew by just like that. The first time in many years that I did not conduct annual fengshui talk for large groups. But gave me and my people a chance to speak to clients one-to-one, and understood more intimately their aspirations and concerns for this year. Of course, we were also busy with post Winter Solstice celebrations, and catching up with Great Wall exhibition.
 
 
So, what's in store for us in this 2021 Metal-Ox year 辛丑年?
 
Last year, we predicted that 2020 Metal-Rat year 庚子年 was going to be a "watershed year" (http://bit.ly/3tTEhgd). My urge to Lotus clients was: "2020 can be a very challenging year. But it can also be the one that 'serves you a new hand of cards' -- a watershed year, and you determine where your river shall flow." 
 
 
I am glad that many of my beloved clients chose victory and prosperity, despite knowing the difficulties that lay ahead. And even gladder to know that they have done surprisingly and spectacularly well, despite the treacherous "weather". 
 
Victory and prosperity truly belong to those who choose to believe, choose to be associated with the best and authentic, and take action.
 
 
2021 Metal-Ox year 辛丑年, it's going to be a glorious year. It is going to be a year full of grand opportunities, especially for my clients in Singapore. It is going to be a year when the world's richest and most powerful gather in Singapore, set up homes and bases.
 
It is also going to be a year of never-before intense competition. Those who thrived in 2020, the survivors, would go all out to capture these deals, these opportunities.
 
 
Question is, would you be able to capture them?
 
Hardly have we advised clients to lie low, wait, be fatalistic...not even in 2020.
 
2021 is really the time to bring out the big guns. Time to be geared up with your Imperial White Inkstone, time to hang your Master Yun fengshui painting, time to be equipped with your sandalwood and agarwood left and right, time to secure your benefactors with your mountains...time to go big.
 
 
Time to GO BIG. Time to WIN.
 
We might have passed the Start of Spring 立春, and that in itself makes it even more important and urgent to revisit what we haven't done, and get it done already. Your home and office fengshui, your personal luck...we see many new clients buying their Lotus Heaven and Earth jadeite rings, their agarwood, right after their first Lotus jadeite pendant, very very happy for them! Very happy that they chose to be their very best!
 
 
If you ask: if I have to choose, what should I focus on?
 
For the house, I say: Mountain, Painting, White Inkstone.
 
For yourself, I say: Lotus Rings, Agarwood, Sandalwood.
 
We have highlighted the powers of each of these collections on many occasions. Of course, it's best for you to possess them all. They work together, forming a web of prosperity and elegance.
 
Still, now is the time to check what you have, and what's the next one you can go for. And as you would have already known, that would depend on what's still available too. Speak to us.
 
Have a glorious 2021.

关公的忠义

 如果你认为关羽只是明代小说《三国演义》中的虚构人物,我一点也不感到惊讶。这部巨作曾改编为多部连续剧和电动游戏,例如:Playstation的《真·三国无双8》。
 
关羽跟小说中的主要人物一样广受欢迎,原因在于他那独特的领导风格。网上搜寻“关羽”便会出现一位气宇轩昂,身着绿袍,手持青龙偃月刀的古人。相传这把刀介于1845公斤,而关公一只手便能很好地驾驭。
 
在华人世界里,关羽是极少备受尊崇的历史人物。从人们给他的尊称便能看出一二:关老爷、关公和关帝。
 
史学家认为关羽的影响力已经超越孔子。在中国的三大宗教——儒释道中,孔子只在儒教中被神格化,但关羽却得到三教的共同崇拜。关羽在儒教中是“圣人”,在道教中是“关圣帝君”,而在佛教中是“伽蓝菩萨”。
 
关羽除了有文化意义,他也是很多行业的守护神。铁匠、演员、黑帮、警察,无不拜祭关公,连商人也不例外。关公还是中国的四大财神之一。
 
关公到底为什么受到警察、匪徒、帝王、百姓,佛教徒和道教徒的崇拜呢?追根究底就是关公的忠义!
 
关公对忠义的坚持是受人崇拜的关键。古代帝王尤其重视臣子的忠诚之心,故认为关公对君主的尊敬和服从值得人们效仿。而对于百姓而言,关公是义薄云天的代表,大家应该学习。
 
Valerie Low 是关公的信徒。她在疫情时期加入保险行业。正当许多菜鸟保险经纪被保险业淘汰的时候(保险业的离职率很高),Valerie却把同辈远远抛在后头。Valerie要的不仅如此,她要的是闯出一片天!她在来旺财馆前,做了很多功课,她受到成功案例的鼓舞,决定在今年八月放手一搏,请购她的第一枚吉祥级关公翡翠(五行金)。
 
戴上翡翠后发生的一系列事件只能以惊人形容!Valerie完成了多笔交易,单单是八月的佣金就足以抵消旺财翡翠一半的价格!
 
除此之外,Valerie八月的业绩在公司是前五名!她将自己的成就归功于关公的忠义。
 
如果你跟Valerie一样从事销售业,并且希望加强业绩,那一定要考虑请购一枚吉祥级关公翡翠,让这位忠义之士为你披荆斩棘,开出胜利之路!

风水中的玉彩螺

玉彩螺或斑彩螺(ammonites)向来被认为是极好的化石,其中保存的物种还可以通过岩石层的年龄,推测其生存的地质时期。这些化石有螺旋形和非螺旋形两种,但大多属螺旋形。非螺旋形也称为异形体。玉彩螺一般属于一亿年以上的化石。
 
玉彩螺这个名称取其螺旋形之意,外观近似公羊角的盘绕纹路。古罗马作家老普林尼(Pliny the Elder)将动物化石称为“阿蒙之角”(ammonis cornua),因为埃及神话中的阿蒙有一对羊角。
 
在风水中,玉彩螺有提高能量的功能,还能将负能量转换为正能量。除此之外,玉彩螺也是一个积累正能量的容器!
 
跟许多旺财馆的客人一样,我是在脸书上看到广告后,才联系上旺财馆。当时心中是既兴奋又存在着疑虑。
 
20159月,我亲自到旺财馆咨询后,便决定放手一搏,踏上旺财之路。当下就请购我的第一枚旺财翡翠——吉祥级翡翠玉彩螺(五行金)。
 
我当时是小学教师,事业正面临重大抉择;父亲又疑似二度中风而入院。几场脑部手术后,父亲不幸地陷入植物人的状态。
 
我决定走出低潮,为生活注入正能量!所以在20151013日,兴奋地戴上了我的第一枚旺财宝物——吉祥级翡翠玉彩螺。
 
当时,我跟太太结婚四年,这段时间专注于工作和兼职学位。我2013年完成文学硕士学位,而她刚完成科学学士学位。人生到了这个阶段,我们认为是当父母的时候了!
 
很奇妙的,在戴上玉彩螺后,我太太成功怀孕,小女现在已经四岁。
 
接触旺财馆已经五年多,我现在已拥有七件旺财宝物!
 
千里之行始于足下!正在阅读本文的你,如果还在犹豫是否来旺财,我鼓励你即刻踏出第一步,加入这个不断扩大的旺财大家庭!

不信命但信风水(第二部)

 六年后,莫先生的公司陷入危机。
 
公司2018年的业绩仅仅是从前的三分之一。为了持续营运,公司决定裁退30名员工。这是他在公司接触到的四成员工。公司请他向这些职员宣布噩耗。
 
虽然他保住了工作,但任何有同理心的人都知道,受影响的不单单是被裁退的员工。他们之中可能有人是全家的唯一经济来源,也有人可能是中年无法转业的人士,也有人可能不够坚强,陷入忧郁,从此一蹶不振。
 
开口裁员看似简单,但对莫先生来说却是万般痛苦。
 
他认为必须为这样将被裁退的员工争取点什么。
 
就在这时候,他接到了旺财馆的一通电话。这种销售电话是常有的事,但在这时候,他认为这是上天暗示他行动。
 
他认为自己的运气需要加强,所以请购了一枚旺财戒指和一块翡翠牌。
 
不仅如此,他还在2018年请购了云大师刚面世的孔雀风水画。
 

春天花开


好运不会自己送上门,好运有时疯狂得像一台云霄飞车。你要屏住呼吸保持信念,随着它带你前往幸福的下一站。
 
他在2019年为公司接下新业务,谈成了两笔交易,让业绩回到从前的数额。2019年结束时,他的总业绩是从前的一倍。这些都是2019年上半年挂了云大师风水画后,在几个月内发生的事。
 
他以这样的业绩跟公司谈,而公司最后决定只裁退五名员工,他成功保住了其余的25名。
 
人生无法完美,所以我们要把握每一个小确幸。

不信命但信风水(第一部)

我们无法选择自己的出身,自己的家庭,自己的环境。纵然大家都希望一帆风顺,但在人生的前十年,我们基本上没有能力做出任何改变,只能仰赖父母的供给。
 
话虽如此,但我们不必一生如此。
 
莫先生在2010年来带旺财馆。他不信命,他认为我们不应该被命所局限。我们都有改命的可能,让生活过得更好,虽然改命有时需要借助外力,例如风水之力。
 

他的第一枚旺财翡翠牌


这时的莫先生,人生顺利,没有面对任何危机,所以这是做风水的最佳时机。与其等到跌入谷底才寻求帮助,不如在顺风顺水的时候努力飞得更高更远。莫先生在两年之中请购了一枚旺财翡翠牌、一座水晶山、一块沉香牌和沉香手珠。
 

历年请购的旺财宝物


你知道人生一帆风顺,无忧无虑是什么感觉吗?
 
莫先生在请购旺财宝物后,无论是事业上还在家庭上,都快乐美满,就好像童话故事幸福的结尾。
 
这持续了六年。
 
我们一些人会在大年初一上寺庙祈求一年的好运气,但莫先生却是六年都平安顺遂。他会这样一直幸福下去吗?

Guan Gong's zhongyi

You can be forgiven if you thought Guan Yu was just a fictitious character from the epic Ming Dynasty novel, "Romance of the Three Kingdoms (ROTK)". This great work was later adapted in recent times into drama serials and many gamers would have also played Koei's turn-based ROTK strategy game and Playstation's Dynasty Warriors, which belongs to the hack and slash genre.

The immense popularity of Guan Yu, as compared to other leading characters, was probably attributed to his charismatic style of leadership! A quick search of Guan Yu's image on Google and you will call up a dignified gentleman in green flowing robes, armed with an impressive weapon known as the Green Dragon Crescent Blade! This legendary blade was said to weigh between 18-45 kg and Guan Yu reportedly was able to wield it agilely with just one hand!

In the Chinese-speaking world, very few historical figures are regarded with reverential respect as Guan Yu, who counts Guan Laoye (Grandpa Guan), Guan Gong (Duke Guan), and Guan Di (Emperor Guan), among his litany of officially bestowed titles.

According to Chinese historians, Guan Yu's overarching influence may have exceeded even that of Confucius himself! In China's three major belief systems - Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism - Confucius has been deified in only one. Guan Gong, on the other hand, is admired by proponents of all three: To Confucians, he's a "sage", to Taoists, he's "Holy Ruler Deity Guan" and to Buddhists, he's the "Sangharama Bodhisattva".

Apart from being solely a cultural and philosophical icon, Guan Gong also became a kind of patron saint or "protector god" for everyone from blacksmiths and opera performers to triads and police officers. Many merchants started worshipping Guan Gong and he is one of China's four main wealth gods!

What explains Guan Gong's overwhelming charisma, galvanising support and adulation from cops and criminals, emperors and commoners, Taoists and Buddhists? The answer is Guan Gong's unconditional and overriding sense of zhongyi!

A portmanteau of the Chinese words for "loyalty", zhong and "righteousness", yi, Guan Gong's steadfast adherence to the principle of zhongyi proved pivotal to his astounding rise to greatness! China's emperors, who valued loyalty in their subjects, saw Guan Gong's obeisance and respect for his superiors as a value worth exulting. To the common folk, it was Guan Gong's yi that made him a panjandrum worth believing in!

And Valerie Low is one such believer! She is a rookie insurance agent who stumbled upon financial planning during this pandemic year. While many other newbies struggled for survival in her industry, (notorious for high attrition rates), Valerie thrived and did somewhat better than her peers. However, she wasn't settling for mediocrity and was seeking a real breakthrough in her career! Having done her homework and inspired by the success stories of other blessed Lotus clients, Valerie took a leap of faith and wore her Auspicious Metal Guan Gong jade pendant in August this year!

The events that ensued shortly thereafter were a series of amazing synchronicities! Valerie smoothly closed more deals and the commissions she received in August itself easily covered more than 50% of the investment she made in her Guan Gong jade pendant!

Besides that, Valerie was also recognised for her efforts and ranked Top 5 in her insurance company, for the month of August this year! She credits her meteoric rise and achievements to Guan Gong's zhongyi!

If you are in a sales profession like Valerie and you seek to transform your results, do consider getting the venerable Auspicious Guan Gong jade pendant, as your faithful ally to empower you in smashing away all obstacles in your path and emerge victorious!!!

你为什么来这里?(第二部)

上一篇文章提到我刚接触旺财馆时的情况。我是跟先生一起来到旺财馆,他的故事我会在另一篇文章分享。

 

刚来到旺财馆时,简董依据我的八字,推算我应该戴五行木和五行火的翡翠。

 

人的五行是依据生辰八字推算,你的命缺哪个五行,那就以相应的旺财宝物补上。这样一来,五行调和,一切兴旺。

 

五行火可以用紫色、红色和粉色,而五行木则可以用绿色。我很“幸运”因为我命里缺这两个五行,我能用的颜色刚好都是我可以接受的。当然,就算是我不喜欢的颜色,我还是会请购旺财翡翠。因为花钱看风水就是要人生更旺,颜色其次!

 

我在上一片文章中提到,我一直觉得人生少了什么,看来就是少了“火”。我就是少了点热忱和热情。人生很顺遂,不需要太努力也能取得不错的成果。我其实可以继续这样过日子,得过且过。

 

虽然旺财馆在网上的风评很棒,但我跟先生没有立刻请购旺财翡翠,因为我们心里还是半信半疑。

 

可是后来我们决定放手一搏,回去旺财馆请购他的第一枚旺财翡翠。他这么做是因为这两年的运势不错,不如好好利用这段时间让自己飞黄腾达。在最好的时候把握最棒的良机。

 

而我呢,就是因为对于人生很多事都缺乏热忱和动力,所以就一拖再拖,没有请购自己的旺财宝物。真是大错特错。我人生没有陷入低潮,只是在很多方面遇到了阻碍,在事业上和人际关系上都遭逢困难。在冠病肆虐的时候碰上这些难题,真的让我心很累。

 

我常想:如果当初跟先生一起请购旺财宝物,一切会不会就没事了。我无从得知,因为世事难料,我不会知道早点旺财,会不会就更开心,机会更多。

 

202092日,我终于戴上了旺财翡翠。在那之前的两天,公司为了保持社交距离,把我调到一个独立办公室。其实我一直都想拥有自己的办公室,因为在安静的环境里做事效率比较高。这间办公室的风水应该不怎么样,之前在里头上班的两位同事都先后离职。而自从入驻那间办公室后,工作量激增,压力翻倍,有点不胜负荷。幸亏旺财翡翠给了我力量,让我有了重生的感觉。

 

以前的我,碰到了这种压力肯定辞职。但戴上旺财翡翠后,对于这些压力,我甘之如饴,还越做越起劲,忽然有了一股拼劲。工作确实让我觉得身心俱疲,但我坚信一切的努力会给我带来丰盛的果实。这好像是我人生第一次想拼尽全力取得成果,不再想得过且过了。

 

今天是我戴上旺财翡翠的第一个月,一切都过得很快很好,我很想知道它还能给我带来什么惊喜。这段时间,我跟先生的争执少了,因为(1)我们有了共同的话题和人生目标,(2)我们在脱下旺财翡翠后就气消了。我们说好吵架一定要脱下旺财翡翠,这是为了避免擦枪走火时,不小心砸碎翡翠。我现在更能接受不同的观点和立场,能坦诚表达内心的想法,也勇于追求自己想要的东西。

 

我没有劲爆的旺财故事可以说,所以这里叙述的都是我的真实经历。旺财馆的装潢很气派,比爱马仕还要霸气,令人望而却步。但请你大胆走进来,这里没什么可怕的。踏出那一步才晓得人生可以走多远!

 

读到这里的你,如果还没去过旺财馆,那就即刻预约你的幸福未来。下来旺财馆看看,就算不买也没关系,不会有人剥了你的皮。但你要清楚你的每一决定都影响着你的未来,而不是别人的未来。

 

你准备好为人生打气了吗?你准备好迎接幸福未来了吗?

 

我会在下一篇文章中介绍我的旺财翡翠,它肯定也是一枚你梦寐以求的翡翠。

 

敬请期待!

 

我把它称为“双鱼”,你认为适合吗?

 

——Ashley
