(1) Dear Uncle Dixer: In 2017, I will have to decide if I sleep with my head in the direction of the Three Killings or under a window. Those are the only two possible ways I can place my bed. Which is better or least bad? Thanks in advance!

AnswerSleeping with your head under a window has physical issues and sleeping with your head against the Three Killings has metaphysical issues, and we can overcome them accordingly.

If you choose to sleep under a window, then you should keep the window closed while you are in bed. You should also have a solid curtain to give you privacy at night and to keep the lights out in the morning. That should handle the physical problems with sleeping under a window for a year.

If you choose to sleep against the Three Killings, then you can either buy an auspicious talisman called “Prosperous Stars Shining Above”, a well-known cure to handle the Three Killings, from a Feng Shui shop. Or, you can download the JPG file here or save the image below and get it printed in colors in approximately 30cm by 30cm (one foot by one foot) size and hang it up on the wall behind your bed for 2017.

That should protect you during the Year of the Rooster. You can say a prayer for protection while hanging it up if you like.

Another solution is to use a pair of Chinese Unicorn (Qi Lin), which should be easier to get but more expensive. It would be better if the Qi Lin are real ones in metal.

Personally, I would sleep with the Three Killings, because there is a popular Feng Shui saying, “If you want to increase your holdings, (then) fight the Three Killings”. By hanging up a talisman, it could be a way of fighting it. Kung Hei Fat Choy! (Happy New Year!)

(2) Dear Uncle Dixer: My bed’s headboard is placed North, and there is no way to change the direction. North is very auspicious for me, but it has the 3 killings in 2018. Could you please let me know if there’s a cure for this? Thank you so much!

Answer: Keep this direction clean and tidy, no rubbish or sharp objects. Do not disturb this direction with noise and disturbances like a ticking or alarm clock.

If you want a remedy for 3 Killings, the traditional and standard solution is to use an auspicious mythical animal made of brass or copper, like a Dragon, a Chinese Unicorn or a Xuanwu Turtle.

Because it is behind your bed and to the North, you will need to be very careful about communications and relationships this year. Think before you open your mouth and don’t be afraid to say sorry, then you will be fine.

    I searched the net for the prosperous star above talisman and it’s not out there. There’s no PDF on the page that I can see to down load ….any ideas? Is there another name this object is called?

      Hi Renee, it’s the image that’s within the text – that red square that’s placed diagonally. Do you see it?

    2. Renee Serrano

      Yes …but the article says you can find this in a feng shui shop. I’ve done searches on the net with the name in the article and so far nothing has turned up. Is there another name that it’s under? I saved the image but I doubt it’s going to print well blown up. I too have the same setup as the person in the article:(

      You’re right. Let me ask Uncle Dixer for more info and get back to you.

      Hi Renee, I just heard back. Looks like it’s only being sold in China and on Chinese websites. He suggested an alternative – a picture of a pair of Chinese unicorn (Qilin). Hope this helps!
