Feng shui expert: Property boom nearing end of cycle
Ehda Dagooc (The Freeman) - February 7, 2016 - 9:00am

CEBU, Philippines - While industry players are seeing sustained vitality in the property market, a feng shui expert is sensing otherwise.

Renowned geomancer and feng shui master Francis Gaw said that the real estate industry always follow a 10-15 year cycle, and in the Philippines, the industry only has two to three more years to experience growth.

He said the cycle will soon hit bottom again, which means that sales will relax or get lesser everyday.

In practical sense, he said, those who have money and have been buying properties will have to save again. And in another 10 years the sector is seen to slow down.

Gaw's extra sensory gift has gained for him the trust of businessmen around the country and abroad. He has been sought out for annual consultations and psychic advise by, among others, high-ranking politicians, big conglomerates, major real estate developers and hotel chains.

Over the weekend, Gaw was in Cebu to give unit owners of Sundance Residences his views on good feng shui alignment and psychic vibrations under the year of the Fire Monkey.

Gaw added that Cebu’s tourism potential will most likely help sustain the province’s economic growth, however, other industries linked to the sector could also experience some struggle this year.

With at least five new restaurant openings in the coming month, the feasibility of the food sector may also experience a slowdown in Cebu, Gaw added saying that even if food is good, clients have the tendency not to come back because they are bound to try on what is new.

On the other hand, he said the worsening traffic problem is a price Cebu has to pay for its good economy, and sustaining good vibes in tourism.

Feng shui is a Chinese art of proper placement and orientation of objects in relation to the flow of energy. It is used by businessmen, among others, to plan the construction of buildings, offices and houses.

Gaw began his “mission” of dispensing feng shui and psychic vibes after being helped by elderly temple monks who advised him to use his gifts to help others improve their lives.

Although the Western world and Christian religion has largely considered feng shui belief as mere superstition, most businesses have put their faith and have credited their success in submitting to this art.

He believes that there is no bad or good business; “the secret lies in the universal law of harmonious lifestyle and always acknowledging the presence and guidance of a higher Divinity or God.”

Gaw is giving feng shui and psychic consultations, not only for clients the Philippines, but around the world.  (FREEMAN)
