If you know Flying Star Feng Shui, from the 2010 Annual Flying Star chart here attached, you will see that star 2 is located in the Northeast direction ranging from 22.5° to 67.5°. In the world of Feng Shui, star 2 is known to carry sickness energy, especially when it is untimely. Many Feng Shui Masters and pratitioners recommend placing a Wu lou (or a calabash, or gourd) to suppress the negative energy. Here below are examples of the wulou, one is made of brass and the others smaller ones are made of either wood, or natural wulou.
As a matter of fact, I have several brass wu lous in my house, and this year in particular, I will place two of them in the Northeast sector to take care of the Period Star 2 and Annual Star 2, both happen to be residing in the same sector. And in the month of May 2010, the monthly star 2 will fly into the same northeast sector, I will then move my "monthly wu lou" into this sector as well.
As we all spend about a third of the 24 hours sleeping to rejuvenate and re-energize our spirit, it is also recommended to place a wulou next to our night tables to promote good health.
This is no superstition and can be explained by the ancient Yijing (The Book of Changes). If you're interested, here's an article written by Master Joseph Yu.
Finally, where can you find this wulou? In any Chinatown or Chinese Feng Shui shops. Or you can click here below to order the wu lous. The prices include shipping by registered airmail.
They are specially activated by Master atan to increase its efficacy in healing and maintaining one's good health, and warding off negative energy generated by the period, annual and monthly Star 2.
If you already possessed a wulou and it's not damaged, cleanse the wulou under running tap water for 30 seconds, dry it with tissue paper, and place it under the sunlight for 10 minutes. You can also add a bit of salt in the wulou to increase the healing process. After your placement, don't forget to ask for activation here or at Dhealing Forum.
To your Good Health!
