Angel de Para is a master of classic Chinese Feng Shui and Chief Executive of Earth Luck International in Miami. “In Asia, my observation of it, Feng Shui is used as a weapon. It’s not used for harmony.”
De Para who has studied many buildings in New York said, ”That building reflected the people that were going to be attracted to that building were going to be gathering large sums of money from the masses.”
“Lipstick Building”, 885 Third Ave, NYC.
Design by Philip Johnson and John Burgee.
That energy can be used in a positive or negative way.
Unfortunately convicted swindler, Bernie Madoff chose the negative. It’s here that Madoff ran a $65 billion ponzi scheme that bilked thousands of investors worldwide.
Another building, The Metropolitan Opera has a different energy. De Para says it reflects fame, which makes it the perfect location for an opera.
The Lipstick building, the Metropolitan Opera
and Bernie Madoff were not clients of de Para.
Classic or traditional Feng Shui is actually quantitative analysis and can even be used to pick stocks.
De Para explained, “Because you know their corporate headquarters and you know the individuals running the companies. So, you already know two of the factors right there. Then when you look at the data and you project backwards, you can see if reflects a pattern, then you can project going forward.”
