Ru Yi is a Chinese scepter, a ceremonial staff traditionally used by the Emperors, high ranking imperial officials and scholars as the symbol of authority. Its shape is curved with a head often carved like a cloud or Ling Zhi (Chinese fungus of immortality) and was usually embellished with precious jewels and stones. One can often see this symbolic ornamental staff being held by Chinese gods and deities such as the Laughing Buddha, central figure in Fuk Luk Sau and Tua Pek Kong.
Ru Yi literally means “as you wish”, which makes it a good fortune Feng Shui symbol that is believed to help remove obstacles and ease endeavors.
Those who are interested in gaining or maintaining power, leadership or authority luck in the career or in life could borrow the energy of the Ru Yi. Place it on your desk, behind where you sit in the office, or in the North sector as it’s reputed to remove hindrances and clear the pathway to career success. It is believed to primarily benefit directors, CEOs, politicians and Managers. Ru Yi makes a great gift for those who are in pursuit of high goals, visions and aspirations.
The placement of the Feng Shui Ru Yi in the Northwest sector is believed to bring the patriarch power and authority luck. Northwest sector also governs networking or mentor luck.
This would give him the authoritative energy to maintain an orderly home and control children who are severely undisciplined. For the same effect for the matriarch, place the Ru Yi in Southwest.
