"The Red Envelope Tradition"
The Red Envelope Tradition is part of the ancient Chinese culture and ritual.
Red Envelopes containing fee for the Feng Shui consultation seals symbolically the full circle of giving and protects the sacred knowledge and Karma between practitioner and client. The effort of the client in putting together the red envelope creates within itself the "intention" which is one of the main and important key in Feng Shui. It demonstrates the sincerity of the person asking for the Feng Shui advice and it reminds us practitioners the responsibility that comes with the sacred knowledge that's been handed down for generations. It helps activate the adjustments symbolically for both
the client and practitioner.
After each consultation, I am handed one or nine of these new red envelopes (it's up to each client in what quantity they want to give back). As I mentioned earlier - the effort placed in putting together the envelope(s) demonstrates the client's "intention" to receive the Feng Shui adjustments;
However, on occasion clients run out of time even though the intention was there originally to make or buy the envelopes themselves; Rest assured,
- should this happen, I will have them with me (complimentary for your use).
It is your initial thought that will carry over as the good intention. Sometimes
clients give me one envelope with a check for the full fee plus some denominations of coins equaling to the most auspicious number 9 (for example, 9 pennies or a nickel +4 pennies=9). Sometimes, I receive 9 new red envelopes and inside each envelope are paper currency or coins summing to denominations of the number 9.
It's up to each client how he/she would like to create the intention, so long as it's inside the red envelope and sums to the auspicious number 9!
