Li Dong (7th Nov 2021) marks the start of the winter and brings about a season of reflection and preparation.
Beneath the snow, new life is stirring. Roots are soaking up nourishment and buds are forming. When the time is right, spring’s beauty is sprung – leaves and shoots, buds and flowers, burst forth.
Winter is a season of self-development and preparation, when we get ourselves ready for our important goals and targets in the coming year.
At Imperial Harvest, winter is an important season, when many new clients embark on their lifelong journey of growth and success.
According to the principles of Imperial Feng Shui, winter is associated with the Major Yin, which represents our personal luck. Our personal luck governs the events, people and opportunities we encounter. These external factors influence our perspectives, emotions and decisions in our race to achieve different milestones in life.
The great zodiac race is a metaphorical representation of our life journey, in which the victory of the Rat offers us many life lessons. According to legend, both the Rat and the Ox led the race despite being at the bottom of the food chain because they made the decision to wake up early.
This act imparts the lesson that in the race of life, we advance and win by preparing ourselves early in the game.
In the final lap of the race, the Rat and the Ox were faced with a river to cross. Despite its physical limitations, the quick-witted Rat won the race against the Ox by jumping off the Ox’s ear.
In this lies another important lesson: the successful think outside the box, leveraging the best of their circumstances to overcome their limitations.
To quote Anthony Robbins, “It is in the moments of our decisions that our destiny is shaped.”
The Rat may not have been the strongest, fittest or fastest among the twelve zodiac animals but it certainly made timely and astute decisions along the way to emerge as the champion of the zodiac race – distilling the wisdom that working hard and making good choices are equally important in the road to success.
The Imperial Harvest Eight Zodiac Guardians collection is the culmination of the wisdom and insights gained from the zodiac race.
Many Imperial Harvest clients have these shared beliefs:
Imperial Harvest’s iconic Eight Zodiac Guardians collection is an apt representation of these shared beliefs. The collection honours and celebrates these beliefs, forming a contemporary tribute to the credence of the zodiac race.
The Eight Zodiac Guardians are protectors of the twelve zodiac signs. Each Zodiac Guardian governs the careers, businesses, investments, trading decisions, health and relationships of their designated devotees.
In paying homage to their all-encompassing reach, Master David conceptualised and designed a collection of the eight zodiac guardians:
Thousand Hands Guan Yin – Rat
Akasagarbha Bodhisattva – Ox and Tiger
Manjusri Bodhisattva – Rabbit
Samantabhadra Bodhisattva – Dragon and Snake
Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva – Horse
Vairochana Buddha – Sheep and Monkey
Acalanatha – Rooster
Amitabha Buddha – Dog and Boar
Imperial Harvest’s signature Eight Zodiac Guardians Collection bestows supreme luck upon its destined owners, empowering them to scale new heights and achieve breakthrough successes in both personal and professional endeavours.
