The Symbolism of Cinnabar or 'Dragon's Blood'

-->

Researching and writing about cinnabar ... which is often referred to as 'Dragon's Blood' ... has been an interesting journey! While I do not profess to be a feng shui master, a chemist or a sage, what I surmise from my research (from various sources) is this:

  • Cinnabar was recognized as a mystical powder because it is produced from volcanic and/or hot springs activity.
  • The heat that results in the creation of cinnabar comes from the very heart (centre) of the earth. 
  • Its red colour depicts both the heart (blood) and burning embers of a fire. As a result, it has the ability to both foster positivity and cause destruction.
  • The ‘magic’ of cinnabar is that it opens doors of opportunity for the future while putting negative experiences of the past to rest.

The Cinnabar Story

-->
An essential ingredient for Feng Shui rituals

When I began working as a feng shui consultant, I was apprehensive about performing chi adjustments rituals. This was due, in part, because I lacked confidence and experience. But the real reason I avoided rituals was that I had no idea where to buy cinnabar.

To be honest, I wasn’t even exactly sure what cinnabar was. All I knew was that cinnabar was a red powder that contained trace amounts of mercury — and you have to be very careful when handling it — and that His Holiness Profession Lin Yun included it on the list of required ingredients for the majority of his rituals.

The Bagua Mirror

A cure for the common energy concern.... the ‘Aspirin’ of feng shui


It is an odd-looking ‘decoration’ that – to most people – might seem strangely out of place when hanging above your front door. Yet to those who practice and teach the ancient art of feng shui, a house is not a home without a bagua mirror.

Bagua (pronounced ‘bah-gwa’ not ‘bag-gwa’) mirrors are one of best-known feng shui symbols of protection and are often referred to as the ‘aspirin’ of feng shui. In some schools of feng shui it may also be referred to as a ‘Pa Kua.’ Call it what you want … they are one of the easiest and most effective cures that can be used to safeguard your home or business from negative energy forces
