According to Feng Shui, the Northwest sector governs the luck that attracts mentors, helpful people and supportive friends into your life. These are the people who will give you a lending hand during times of trouble and distress; not necessarily in the form of money but also opportunities, wise advice, support, or simply a listening ear. This kind of luck is called Mentor Luck or "Gui Ren '' luck.
Here are the things you can put in the Northeast Sector to enhance your mentor luck:
One way to effectively activate Mentor luck is to display gods or deities in the form of statues, figurines, or paintings in the Northwest sector of the home or office. One of the most well known representations of deities in Chinese culture is ‘Kwan Kung’, the God of War and Wealth. He is very popular among politicians, businessmen and the Armed Forces as he is known to uphold justice and defend the innocent.
Alternatively, you can use a picture of the figure whom you look up to and who inspires you to do greater things. For example, if you are a sportsman, you should use a picture of a successful sportsman in the sports you are playing that you are a big fan of.
As the ruling element of the Northwest sector is Metal, statues or figurines made of metal (brass, silver, pewter etc.) or earth material (clay, crystal or ceramic) should be used. Therefore, Feng shui products strong in metal or earth energy such as wind chimes or crystal balls can also be used to enhance this sector. Also, avoid wooden ones as it weakens Metal.
The Chinese believe that dragons are the ultimate symbol of good luck. The dragon belongs to the East sector and when a figurine/painting is placed in the Northwest sector, it can improve your mentor's luck. You should avoid placing a metal dragon in this sector.
In today’s corporate world, it is important to have connections around you to help you achieve greater success. Therefore, following the Feng Shui tips given above will help you enhance this aspect of your life.
