Pi Yao 2017

When someone asks you what is Feng Shui, chances are that you mention Pi Yao along with the many other Cures and Enhancers when you are trying to explain how Feng Shui works; the reason to this is because the Pi Yao is one of the most popular Feng Shui Cures that exists along with the Buddha, Dragon, Fu Dogs and more.

The Pi Yao goes by different names such as Pi Xiu (earthly form) or Pi Kan (Water form) and is recognised as a very powerful Cure and Enhancer all around the world. The Pi Yao can be quite confusing to explain to some people as it looks similar to a small dragon but with wings and when understood, you will realise that the Pi Yao offers protection and auspicious luck and is also known as the lottery god as many believe by placing lottery cards under him will bring good luck.

Academy of Feng Shui Sheng Chi Lottery Numbers

Our Academy of Feng Shui Software has a lucky lottery number generator which picks numbers based on your Sheng Chi numbers. We have had endless reviews from clients who have had good money come in from using this method. If you know your personal Sheng Chi directions, you should place these under your Pi Yao or maybe take a look at our software here by clicking this link. 

The Pi Yao is one the most popular symbols used in Feng Shui and recommended by virtually all Feng Shui Masters. It is the ninth son of the Heavenly Dragon and has different names as shown above. Pi Yao lives in heaven and they are best shown sitting on Chinese coins to signify your fortune being protected, making it a powerful wealth and luck enhancer.

The history of the Pi Yao dates very far back when he broke a heavenly law and the Jade Emperor punished him by feeding him with only pieces of silver and gold and although it sounds a bit crude, his rear end was sealed which means the gold was entering him but could not leave. Metaphorically speaking, the translation of this is that when the Pi Yao is placed in a home or office, wealth is welcomed into the building and staying in the building.

Pi Yao The Pi Yao is one of the most powerful cures for protection that you can use in Feng Shui and is also a powerful enhancer but also for protection against legal problems, arguments, disputes and loss of wealth and to appease the Grand Duke (Tai Sui) which sits in the north in 2020.

The Pi Yao has been referred to as the Tai Sui’s pet as it always faces the area where Tai Sui is present for the year sitting in the opposite direction to appease Tai Sui and in 2020, the Pi Yao should sit in the south and face the north.

The most popular Cure used in big corporations has always been a pair of Fu Dogs although, in more recent times, many big corporations and smaller businesses have started placing a large Pi Yao outside companies such as banks, casinos and other businesses that handle high volumes of money. You have to be careful when placing Pi Yao’s as one of the most important aspects of this cure is the overall size of the Pi Yao; in traditional Feng Shui you have auspicious and inauspicious measurements and the entire measurement should fall within a Chai sector which is approximately between 0 – 55mm and this Pi Yao is nicely sited within 50mm (Chai) which is said to bring wealth creation and protection and said to bring six types of good fortune.

In traditional authentic Feng Shui measurement is so very important and even a few more millimetres on a Pi Yao would take the sector into Pi which is said to bring legal problems with government and loss of wealth. Our Feng Shui software has all the measurements built into it and it is something we have personally used with great results for many years. With size being so important, we make sure that every Pi Yao that we sell falls in line with an auspicious measurement which is very often overlooked with many Feng Shui suppliers.

The Pi Yao provides a minimum of six blessings as follows:

  1. Conducts good luck and fortune
  2. Generate good Feng Shui or earth luck
  3. Enhances wealth and riches
  4. Protects individuals and building
  5. Protects against evil forces, obstacles and hardship
  6. Brings unexpected windfall luck

Pi Yao

I was sent the following story on our Facebook page from a lady who found a Pi Yao in a second-hand store and after cleansing the Pi Yao, gave it to her friend; you’ll be amazed by the power that even a second hand Pi Yao holds.

I have a little story about a Pi Yao I found and bought from a 2hand store. I was in looking for a nice glass jug, when all of a sudden I saw this little figurine in a corner, at first I thought it was one of the temple lions and thought, what a pity it had lost its mate. But looking closer I realised it was not one of the lions, it was a Pi Yao, but not in a version I had ever seen before. I then remembered a friend of mine being intrigued by the story of the Pi Yao. So I looked at him and said: “would you like to have a new owner? because I know just the person who will love and honour you to your Heart’s content”. It felt so right to buy him, I cleaned him by putting him out in the light of the full moon and also standing in bright sunlight. and two days later he was given as a birthday present to my friend…And has he brought happiness and luck to her 🙂 She wanted to build an extension to her house for years, but the bank didn’t really want to support her, but all of a sudden there was no problem. and several other things in her life just sorted themselves out without much effort…So last month she looked around in her lovely new and spacious livingroom and said” look how much has happened, so many good things this year, and it all came about after he moved in with me” she said and pointed at her Pi Yao. 🙂

  1. Hi Daniel

    My dining area is in the south and work office is in north. Can i put piyao statue in the dining table facing north. Or put the Pi Yao on north office facing south?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Maya,

      I would recommend placing a Pi Yao in the south, facing towards the north for 2020.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  2. Hi!

    Can you provide any guidance or explanation why it’s not advised to wear the pixiu during shower? I recently bought a jade pixiu pendant and it seems like it would be a pain to remove the necklace twice a day—once for sleep and once for shower?

    1. Hi Maggie,

      Some people advise removing the Pi Yao when showering or using the toilet out of respect although I believe that as long as you are being respectful when wearing the Pi Yao, this would not cause a problem.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  3. I am interested in purchasing a Pi Yao bracelet as I have read so much about the many different kinds to purchase and came across your site.

    You state that any age can get benefits from the Pi Yao but would firstly like to know what materials they are made of?

    I looked at the Feng Shui Obsidian bracelets but it states senior people were not advised to wear them as I am a senior I declined.

    Is it still quite ok for elderly people to wear the Obsidian Stone or is this the part that is not advisable for seniors to wear?

    I have been interested in many different cultures and their traditional ways and have seen the Pi Yao but never really read up on their benefits.

    Thank you for your time.

    Regards,
    Susan.

    1. Hi Susan,

      I haven’t heard that seniors should not use obsidian; this is a protective crystal and has healing powers which would make it great for a senior.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Thank you Daniel.
        But reading many sites apparently it isn’t advisable for seniors to use feng shui.
        I was given a bracelet as a present with obisidian and gold but reluctant to wear it.
        I am in my early 70s but a very active person.
        How will wearing one affect me?.
        Your advice on this would be grateful.

        1. Hi Susan,

          We have many clients in their 70’s who get great results.
          If you are not happy wearing the bracelet, I would not recommend wearing it as this could have a counterproductive effect when wearing it due to you being worried about the effects.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

          1. Good day Daniel.
            I am not afraid of wearing it I just needed clarity on the consequences of wearing it if any over 70+.

            I do have many bracelets and various stones in particular the Chakras and Reiki products.

            I also take many different herbs and supplements from India which I do believe are helping me stay healthy.
            I have been wearing the bracelet with much confidence and feel happy doing so.
            Thank you for advice and if I may contact you with any questions I would appreciate it.
            Thank you again for contacting me.
            Regards.
            Susan Murray.

          2. Hi Susan,

            I personally can’t see you having any consequences from wearing the bracelet. Obsidian is a great crystal for purifying the body, absorbing negative energy and aiding digestion.

            I hope this helps.

            Kind regards,
            Daniel

  4. I have a silver and garnet double pixiu bracelet and they’re facing inwards towards each other.

    Is this okay or should I take it apart and have them facing away from each other?

  5. Hello!

    My name is Shayne. My boyfriend just purchased a Russian Jade bracelet with a gold Pi Yao. He is left-handed and we are confused which hand/wrist it should be worn?

    Hope you can help us.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Shayne,

      I would recommend wearing the bracelet on the dominant hand that is used to write with.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  6. Hello. I just purchased a Pi Yao Amethyst bracelet online. I am curious to know if the size of the Pi Yao on the bracelet is of any concern? Is there some standard size or something? I didn’t check the size. Iam Earth Dragón year born. I hope it won’t work in a negative way???
    Thank you for taking out time to read and help.

    1. Hi Donna,

      There is no standard size as far as I know.

      The Pi Yao bracelet would not cause a problem if you are a Dragon as it can be worn by all of the twelve animals.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  7. Hello Daniel!

    I was enticed to purchase a piyao bracelet because for the past 2 years (2018 and 2019) i had lots of misfortune and adversities. it’s 2020 now and there are lots of feng shui predictions but they are not all consistent thus I am confused whom am i going to believe in. I am year of the dragon. born in 1976. is it ok if i placed my piyao bracelet inside my cabinet coz placing it in the living room is not safe due to many people entering our house.

    1. Hi Aileen,

      I always advise finding someone whos advice from previous years matches up to how you feel your year went and then follow their advice.

      That will be fine to place the bracelet in a cabinet; I would wrap it in tissue or cloth so that it is safe.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Gerard,

      If the bracelet is chipped on the Pi Yao itself, I would recommend replacing the bracelet. If you are keeping the bracelet, I would wash it in salt water and leave it outside under moonlight for the evening.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  8. Hi Daniel,

    We have a pair of big jade Pi Yao (12 kgs. each) which are placed outside, on each part of the main entrance door (facing South).We have received last week ,as a gift, another pair of Pi Yao , but smaller (15 cm length ,6 cm width) made of cristal. There are some sites where it is said that is not ok to have more than 2 Pi Yao.It is true?So where should I place the new ones if it is not true(I have put them on South facing North).
    Sincerely,

    Marian

    1. Hi Marian,

      That would not cause any problems having more than one pair of Pi Yao’s.

      I would not recommend placing the large Pi Yao’s in the south this year as the large earth energy will feed the natural energy of the annual #2 star.

      The best place to place these is in the northwest or southeast this year.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  9. I am born on a rabbit sign and been wearing a piyao bracelef for months now. Is it true that it is not good for my sign to wear a piyao bracelet? Now i am sad…i would love to have a piyao or wear my piyao to protect me and give me luck…

    1. Hi Faye,

      Some people say that certain animals cannot wear Pi Yao bracelets although this is not my belief. The Pi Yao is not in conflict with any of the twelve animals and would not cause problems.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Jocelyn,

      Pi Yao bracelets can be worn by any age or gender and are not specific to a certain type of person.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  10. Hi Daniel ,

    May i know the best option to place my Pi Yao since the opposite direction of our North which is the south is our bedroom? Others said its not good to place it in that area,why?Would it be possible to place it in other direction but still would be facing north as well. Should it be eye level or below the sitting position of the Pi Yao ? Thanks in advance !

    Regards,

    marifi

    1. Hi Marifi,

      That will be fine to place the Pi Yao in your bedroom as long as it is not too close to your bed. The Pi Yao should be placed off of the floor. The general rule is to be respectful to the Pi Yao and not place him anywhere near dirt or somewhere that he may be knocked.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  11. Good day,
    I bought a lucky charm bracelet and accidentaly my friend touched it by pointing while im wearing it asking what does this jade symbolize etc…is that okay? Or i need to clean it again? I read it..it couldnt be touch by anyone except you if so happens you just need to cleans it with water? Is it right?

    1. Hi Donah,

      That will be fine if someone else touches it. If you like, it wouldn’t do any harm to cleanse the bracelet and leave it under moonlight overnight.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  12. Hi Sir,
    My animal sign is tiger, and i just purchased ang piyao bracelet online..I read that people born under the animal sign tiger should not wear cause it will bring misfortune I beed your advise sir.
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Jocelyn,

      Some people say that certain animals cannot wear Pi Yao bracelets although this is not my belief. The Pi Yao is not in conflict with any of the twelve animals and would not cause problems.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

      Daniel

  13. Hi Daniel

    Can I use my pi yao statue I used for 2019? Or should I get a new one for 2020 for the flying stars ? Can I also used my 5 star pagoda and 3 guardians from 2019 for the flying stars this 2020?

    May I know what cures from 2019 can we still use for 2020 fengshui cures. Many thanks

    Regards
    Maya

    1. Hi Maya,

      These cures can all be reused in 2020; to find placement instructions, I would use the search tool on the website to find your cures.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

        1. Hi Gerard,

          If this is only a small chip, you can colour in the chip and cleanse the cure. If more than 25% of the Pi Yaos ear has been broken off, I would recommend replacing the whole cure.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  14. Hi Daniel, I was born in May 1972 year of the Rat. 2020 seems to be lot of omens for all rats age on career, health, fortune, marriage, and well being. I have a pair of Pi Yao’s still in the position of 2019. It will be changed to 2020 position placement as advised. Furthermore, is there any other advise you can enlighten me to minimizing damage what are coming my way in 2020? I am informed of month to careful to avoid accident, legal issue and exercise for health enhancement. But again, besides being alert which sometime is not perfect, is there anything else I can do to enhance the blessing to block or lessen the damage? I am starting up a challenging business and it seems to be a rough start. Please advise. Thank you very much in advance!

    1. Hi Frank,

      2020 isn’t looking that bad for the Rat; there will be some areas that require more effort although you have everything in your power to make this a successful year.

      The best I can give without doing a full consultation is to read through the 2020 Flying star analysis as this will help you make the most of 2020.

  15. Hi, I’m born in the year of the rooster, is it ok to have a tiger eye Pi xiu on my left hand, and an obsidian double pi xiu on my right hand? Are they suppose to be facing outwards or inwards to my body? Also, if I want to remove them while showering/going restroom, is it ok to place them randomly in a certain place (I rent a room, only and space is limited) or should it be in a silver bowl or placed in a red cloth or be placed at a certain area facing a direction? Sorry so much questions! Just wanted to know the proper way to care for a Pi Xiu. Thanks for your informative article 🙂

    1. Hi Crystal,

      I would wear the bracelet on your dominant hand as this is the hand that carries out important tasks.

      The Pi Yao should be facing outwards to your hand rather than up your arm.

      If you are placing the bracelet down for a short period of time, it is fine to carefully place it on a surface.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  16. Hi, im anna. I had an old piyao bracelet stored in my cabinet for a while. While spring cleaning i saw this bracelet and modified it by adding an old yuan bao. How can i activate it again? Im a wood rabbit and experienced negative years in the last 3 years.

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Anna,

      I would clean the bracelet and place it out under moonlight overnight to cleanse the bracelet of any negative energy.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

          1. Hi Anna,

            I would recommend cleansing the bracelet every 3-6 months depending on how often you wear it.

            Kind regards,
            Daniel

  17. Hi I have bought a piyao bracelet recently and just read an article later that pregnant woman should not wear piyao bracelet for it might hurt the baby, If this is the case, where can I keep my pi yao bracelet while i’m waiting for my baby due? I’m currently pregnant 6 months.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Tin,

      I personally would not worry about wearing the bracelet although it all comes down to personal preference.

      I would place the bracelet carefully in your bedside table or in a respectable area until you start wearing it again.

      Congratulations on your pregnancy!

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  18. Hi Daniel,

    Thanks so much for this informative article. I bought a ceramic red piyao for 2019 and placed it facing the northwest, where our front door is. We live in a rental house we just moved into in August. It’s supposed to be a protection for the home, I was told. But now I’m finding out that there are many things to do with a pi Yao and what it does in return. I was hoping for a more active pi Yao and better direction for everything else… what else can I do? I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong though. I placed it with different Buddhas (I can send you a photo of you need to see it) on the southeast area, got my mystic knots in place… but it still feels like I’m doing something wrong. I’m a fire snake and my hubby is wood rabbit.

    1. Hi Kadij,

      I would recommend placing the Pi Yao in the southeast of your home, facing towards the northwest as this will appease Tai Sui for the year. on the 4th of February 2020, you can place him in the south of your home, facing towards the north.

      Here is an article that will explain more about Tai Sui – https://www.fengshuiweb.co.uk/advice/threekillings.htm

      I’d also take a look at the link below and try to introduce the colours and object for the rest of the year.

  19. Hallo!
    I‘m a female wood rat born 1984, Gua 8. I feel in 2019 my Luck & Financial are not good. That’s why I will buy your gold Pi Yao. But my SE is my bedroom & NW is bathroom. Is it ok to put Pi Yao in my Bedroom? Would it be considered as rude as bathroom? And when I bought lottery online (I didn‘t get the „paper“ ticket), can I just print my numbers and put it under this Pi Yao? Do you think I can survive in 2019? Thank you very much.

    1. Hi,

      Placing a Pi Yao in a bedroom will be fine as long as you remain respectful when around him and keep the area around free of clutter.

      Yes, you can print your ticket and place it under the Pi Yao.

      I would take a look at the monthly Flying star analysis on the website and try to follow that as there are lots of easy cures to implement to make the most of the rest of the year – https://www.fengshuiweb.co.uk/advice/teachyourselffengshui.htm

      I hope this helps and hope that things improve for you.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. Hi. I just bought a Pixiu Bracelet. I understand from the person that women wear it on the right hand and men wear it on the left hand? Can I confirm this?

      1. Hi Helina,

        Some people believe that the Pi Yao bracelet should be worn on a certain wrist although, from my knowledge and experience, you should wear this on your dominant hand that you use for writing etc.

        I hope this helps.

        Kind regards,
        Daniel

    1. Hi Maya,

I have a gold color Pi Yao and wanted to know the correct placement. my NW is the garage and SE is the dining area; however, per compass reading my front door faces approximately the NW (which is located right next to the garage).

      Your auspicious numbers can vary depending on gender, date of birth and time of birth.

      Kind regards,

  28. Hello, I’m year of the dog, and I bought a ring with piao charm on it (looks like dragon piao I guesss). Can I wear it? And if yes, Right or left hands? Specific finger?

    1. I wear my bracelet on left hand as those was the recommendation from the site where I order
      Do I need to wear on the dominant hand that’s my right always
      Also I need to ask, if I just entering in the bathroom that’s together with toilet, I should remove it every time or I should remove it only when I use toilet because I don’t understand, everyone talks different about how to wear and what’s the right way
      As well what’s the best way to clean and activate it as positive energy around me and my family
      And last question
      My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, I bought one bracelet for her as well, ” IT WILL HELP WITH HER HEALTH AND HEALING”

      1. Hi Gabriel,

        I’m sorry to hear your wife has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

        I would recommend wearing the bracelet on your dominant wrist as this is the hand that carries out the most important tasks.

        As long as you are respectful and careful, this will be fine to wear in the bathroom.

        I would clean the bracelet every few months and leave it out under moonlight to cleanse the bracelet of any negative energy it has accumulated.

        Could you please let me know which bracelet you bought for your wife.

        Kind regards,
        Daniel

  29. hi im year of the dog, can i wear piyao? if not, can you please suggest what best i can wear as lucky charm that does the same as pi yao?
    thank you very much for your time 😊

    chanteil

    1. Hi Chanteil,

      It will be fine to wear a Pi Yao as this is not specific to any Chinese animal.

      For protection, I would suggest carrying a Rabbit animal protection charm.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi Jam,

        I would suggest wearing the bracelet on your dominant wrist as it could be seen as disrespectful wearing it so close to the ground if it is on your ankle.

        Kind regards,
        Daniel

        1. hi daniel..
          i have a citrine piyao and im born 1982 year of the dog i have an incoming black obsidian piyao bracelet my dominant hand is left do i need another charm or can i just usedthe piyaoforgood luck and protection.i usually put it on a broad daylight to cleanse it since i am unable to do it for a moonlight due of my work. pls help me on what needs to do in order for the piyao to help and guide me in my current situation.

          1. Hi Maricar,

            That will be fine to wear on your dominant hand and the way you cleanse and recharge the energy of the bracelet will work well.

            I would not worry about doing anything else with the bracelet.

            Kind regards,
            Daniel

      2. I was born in the year of the pig. Where should I wear my pixiu bracelet? Left or right? I’m really confuse. Thank you.

    1. Hi Karen,

      This will be fine although please be sure to cleanse your bracelet throughout the year.

      Kind regards,

  30. Sir after purchased pi yao I am facing lot and lot of money problems. What to do for shall I keep or not. What to do kindly suggest us

    1. Hi Sowmya,

      I would recommend taking a look through the monthly stars to see if anything is causing a problem. I would also look back to see if you made any changes in the home around the same time that could have caused problems.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hello sir

  31. Hi Daniel I bought a 24K Pi yao and make it customized.
    I combined the Pi yao with a pearl.
    Is it ok to have a pearl around Pi yao?

    1. Hi Tes,

      I would not recommend placing the pearl on a Pi Yao. If you already have a pearl, I would place it on the end of a Dragons hand.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  32. I have 2 piyao, one with one horn , one with two. Where do i place them? Is it ok to place them together in SE facing NW? Or one in SE facing NW, the other one in NE faving SE? Please help. Thank u

  33. Hello,

    I am just wondering how i will going to use the pi yao for lottery? And i am a right handed but i read some info that it should be in the left hand side. Which hand is the best to wear the pi yao.

    1. Hi Angel,

      You should place the lottery ticket under the Pi Yao. I would recommend wearing the Pi Yao bracelet on your dominant hand.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi Daniel,

        Sorry i am a but confused, i have a pi yao bracelet only, do i need to put my lottery ticket under my bracelet? Dominant hand is the right hand? But i have read some that it should be wear on the left hand which is the receiving hand. So, I should wear it on the right hand for having luck in lottery?

        Thanks i am just new of this, i just want to make sure i am wear it on the best hand.

        1. Hi,

          Sorry, I thought you meant that you had a statue of a Pi Yao as well.

          I would wear the bracelet on your dominant hand as this is the hand that you do all of your activities with.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

          1. Hi Martha,

            If you are worried about the bracelet breaking, I would not suggest wearing it if you will be too worried when wearing it.

            Kind regards,
            Daniel

  34. hi daniel…i am ordering the pi yao bracelet and it is even on its way already.may i just know that do i have to take the bracelet of during bath?

    best regards,

    gigi

    1. Hi Gigi,

      You can keep it on during a bath although I would take it off as the string could become worn out.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  35. Hi, I am an ambidextrous person, although I was born originally a lefthander but through out the years I developed the same usage of my both hands.
    So I have a preference, but not a dominant hand
    If I’m to wear a Pi Xiu bracelet, on which hand should I wear it ?

      1. Hi , I just the my brackets. Black Obsidian, and the Pi xiu.
        Should I be wearing both bracelets on left as to receive, or right dominant hand ?
        Which one in front , or does it matter? Or one on each.. New for me. I’m at a news career real estate, and finances are troublesome. Need direction…desperate! Help pls!

        1. Hi Christeen,

          I would wear the bracelets on your dominant writing hand. I would have the Pi Yao bracelet facing out towards your fingertips.

          I hope this helps and hope that things improve soon.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  36. I’ve read this and I’m smitten by Pi Yao’s mythical story. I will visit Chinatown in San Francisco, California and look around until I find Pi Yao statue that I make a connection with. I will bring him home and place him the northeast area of my home. That could be one of a few places. My dining room, kitchen or laundry room. Perhaps I can have him sit in those areas every 4 months during the coming years. I need to make sure which side of my home the northeast section of it is located so that Pi Yao will feel comfortable so he can also help me a little..
    If I may ask, what if any are offerings, O as a human can give him (besides feeding him bits of gold and silver)?

    1. Hi JD,

      I would make sure the area around the Pi Yao is kept clean and tidy and make sure you cleanse him a few times a year!

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Jayson,

      I would place it in a bedside drawer or anywhere respectful (do not leave in a pile of clutter or near rubbish).

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  37. My bf has a red bracelet with one gold Pi yao charm but he wanted to have a black onyx with gold pi yao as well. I am thinking of getting him one but the bracelet I found has 2 pi yao and a coin charms. Can he wear the red bracelet with one Pi yao and the black onyx with 2 pi yao and a coin together? Which arm should he be wearing them?

    Thank you

    1. Hi Nikki,

      I can’t see it being a problem wearing both although I would keep them both on the same wrist.

      When wearing a Pi Yao bracelet, you should wear it on your dominant wrist.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Red eye in the forehead of the pi yao came off. Is it still good? Can I paste the red eye back on its forehead with adhesives? Will it create bad luck?

        1. Hi Ci,

          If the mould of the Pi Yao is not broken, I would glue it back on. If the mould of the figure is cracked or chipped, I would replace it.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  38. Can you get a Pi Yao tattoo?
    I often get tired of wearing bracelets or sometimes I can’t wear them due to work attire.
    So I thought of a tattoo but I’m not sure I read somewhere else where they said having it on at the wrong time would creat bad luck?

    Please let me know.

    Thank you in advance!
    Luna

    1. Hi Luna,

      You can get a Pi Yao tattoo if you like although I personally feel this would be more personal preference rather than for protection. It is true that having it on when taking part in certain activities could offend although I would see this in the same way as wearing a crucifix.

      If you like the idea of a Pi Yao tattoo, I would say go for it, Luna 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  39. Hi. I want to ask about pendant pixiu that i bought. Can i bring it to go toilet? And can i wear it during sleep?

  40. Hi Michael,

    I have tiger’s eye Pi Yao bracelet. I am a female. Whiich hand should I wear the bracelet? I already wear rose quartz and citrine bracelet on my left hand.
    Thank you

    Regards,

    Julie

  41. Hi, I would like to know whether is a gold pixiu more powerful in attracting windfall wealth or a jade one? I’m thinking of getting a pixiu bracelet for myself. I have people who told me I need to get the pixiu consecrated in order to empower it otherwise I would be just wearing it as a jewelery. Is this true and necessary?

    Thanks & best regards.

    1. Hi Wendy,

      I would use a gold Pi Yao for wealth as jade focuses more on health and healing. You do not need to have the Pi Yao consecrated although it would do no harm to do this if you prefer to.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  42. Hello Daniel,

    Thanks so much for your detailed posts.
    I have purchased a seven star obsidian piyao set (looks like a star of David.

    Each piyao is facing one after another in a circular shape (6) with the center crystal obsidian ball piece.

    Should place this in the southeast corner of the house?
    My front entrance for the apartment (not building) faces west.n
    The front entrance of he building is facing south.

    Please kindly advise.

    Many thanks,
    Tracey

    1. Hi Tracey,

      I’m afraid I haven’t come across one of these cures before so I would not want to advise in case I give the wrong advice. If you could send a photo to our Facebook page for me to look at, I should be able to advise better.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  43. Hi Michael!
    I have Jade Tianlu with blacknecklace.
    How to Cleanse and Energize specifically a tianlu jade pendant?
    What are the steps, Do’s and Donts?
    Hope you could help me with this one.

    Kindly regards,
    Daniel

    1. Hi Daniel,

      I would wash the necklace with warm water and then sprinkle it with salt and leave it under moonlight overnight. You should then wash it again and leave it to dry. Please apply care if the salt could damage or stain any leather or metal.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  44. Hi, I’m wearing pixiu bracelet on my dominant Right hand. There is only 1 pixiu on the bracelet, is there any difference if the pixiu is facing left (facing my left hand) or right(facing outside)?

    1. Hi J,

      I would not say this would make a difference although I will look into it and get back to you.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

        1. Hi J,

          I would recommend facing the Pi Yao out towards your hand rather than towards your body.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  45. Hello
    Recently I buy 2 gold pixiu bracelet 1 medium size and 1 small size. Would like to know can I wear both in right hand or I need wear separately? Or can I put 2 pixiu to make 1 bracelets? Would also like to know the pixiu head face me or another side? Thank you.

    1. Hi Arianna,

      You can wear both on your dominant writing hand. You should have the head pointing towards your hand rather than your arm.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  46. is it okay to wear a a gold pi yao attached to a bracelet on both hands? I have two bracelet with a gold pi yao each that I wear on my left and right hand.

    1. Hi Sidney,

      I’d recommend wearing them both on your dominant hand although you can wear one on each hand if you prefer.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    Thanks
    janine

    1. Hi Janice,

      I would place one Pi Yao in the southeast facing towards the northwest. You can place the second one in the southeast on a different floor if you like.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. I have a two pi yao facing one another in one red bracelet. Which hand should I wear it?
        Female born year of the ox 1973.
        And I have a tiger eye bracelet with piyao also. Can I wear them both on my writing hand? Some say left hand. Can u you help. Thanks

        1. Hi Maya,

          I would try wearing both on your dominant hand and see how you get on. If you notice the bracelets having a negative effect, I would remove one and go from there.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  48. Recently bought a jade pi yao pendant at a chinese store, it has been put in a singing bowl, it has been cleansed right? Is there a need to cleanse it again with tap water? And i put it at night at my nightable with a glass of water, is it right? Tnx hoping for your advice

        1. Hi Tristen,

          the majority of cures and enhancers can be cleansed and reused. We update the cures on our site with instructions every year and if you don’t see them on the site, this will mean they cannot be reused such as the master cure, sheng chi cure etc.

          Salt water cures and six coins in a row should not be reused as they hold a great deal of negative energy from the previous year.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  49. Dear Michael,
    I currently have two jade pi yao facing my front door at home, however there area about 15cm large.
    I also have a pi yao at my work that is 5cm large. Should I put away or get rid of my 15cm large pi yao??
    I’m not sure what to do with them if they bring my bad luck.

    1. HI Catherine,

      I would leave them where they are by the front door. If you feel they are bringing bad luck at home or in your office, an easy test is to remove them for a week and see if you notice a difference.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  50. Hi I’m living in a rented bedroom i place my Pi Yao at living room but was told to keep it. Can i put it in my room and where should i place it?

    1. Hi Bobby,

      You should place the Pi Yao in the southeast sector of your bedroom facing towards the northwest.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  51. Hi,
    I have purchased a citrine pi Yao bracelet. I absolutely love him. I have a few questions. I’m a female, 6/22/1966. I believe I’m a horse and lucky number is 8. Do I wear it on my right or left hand? Also does pi Yao face inward towards me or outward towards everything else?

    1. Hi Theresa,

      You should wear the bracelet on your dominant hand and have him pointing towards your hand.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

        1. Hi Chuchi,

          So if the Pi Yao is sat on your wrist, he would be facing down towards your hand rather than up towards your arm.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  52. My neighbour’s front door is facing my front door. I notice that they placed a pair of pixiu outside their front door (on the floor and one at each side of the door) facing us. Is it bad to us? Will our wealth luck be all absorbed by them? If yes, how can we prevent? Appreciate your advice. Thanks.

    1. Hi Jasmine,

      I would not worry about this. If you do notice any problems, you could put a barrier such as potted plants or a fence to deflect the energy coming from your neighbour’s house.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  53. Hi,

    I’m wearing pixiu bracelet on my right hand is there any difference if the pixiu is facing left(in) or right(out) ?

      1. Hello, my NW direction is at my back and i am facing south-east (entrance door to my office), if i am to place the Pixiu facing Taisui then it will be facing the wall instead of the entrance. Which should be the correct way ?

        Thanks alot !!

  54. Hi, Happy New Year!!!

    I want to know which direction should Pi Yao be facing on 2018?? I was reading and is a bit confusing. Right now, is on the coffee table facing NE, but I think is supposed to face NW? Thank you in advance for your reply. 🙂

    1. Hi Dee,

      Happy New year to you too!

      The Pi Yao should be placed in the southeast facing towards the northwest as of the 4th February 2018.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  55. I bought a 2 pixiu gold with black agate bracelet facing each other with a black agate to the center of them is it ok to wear it everyday and where should i wear my left or right.

  56. Can I put my Pi yao on the stairs? My stairs forms a U-shape with 2 landings. The exact East is at the stairs step-center (not on either landing to its left or right) and it faces directly at my dining (west) by the sliding door looking towards the garden. How should I place my Pi yao? can it be on the steps itself or must i place it at height? If on the steps, it would be at our foot when we go up and down, if we place it at a heigher steps or at height (say on shelve on the stairs wall), the Pi yao will be higher than our head

    1. Hi Serena,
      I would place it between knee and hip height from when you walk by it although if it has to go on the floor it will be fine. We had to put if floor height one year and it was fine although walking close by it each time is not great, so try and raise it a bit.
      Hope this helps
      Kind regards
      Michael

  57. Hi! I have a gold piyao bracelet.i bought in a shop. Is it ok to use it can i use it 24hrs a day even in house hold choires. Because someone told me it shoud never wash it. I mean when i m doing the dishes and takibg a bath. Thank you

    1. Hi,

      That will be fine to wear all the time and wash when it gets dirty. Normal Feng Shui Cures and Enhancers are washed when they are cleansed so this will be no different.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  58. Hi,

    I want to ask where to place my Pi Yao ? my front entrance is on the east side & on the west side there is a big window.

    1. Hi Van,

      You should place your Pi Yao in the east of your home, facing towards the west for 2017.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  59. Dear Sir,

    After reading this article I am planning to buy pi yao.kindly suggest me where to keep.which direction to keep.please suggest me where to buy .

        Thanks for your kind reply.i have purchased pi yao.and i have keept to east facing toward west.but it is not setting on coin.is that any problem.and i have keept some important doucment under it.is that any problem.

        Thanks,

        1. Hi,

          Pi Yao’s are best placed on top of a bed of coins for wealth protection although this should not cause problems by not having this.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

          1. Hi,

            Apologies but I cannot see what the question is as you have not left a name or email address.

            Kind regards,
            Daniel

          2. Sir my question is I already purchased pi yao. But it’s not sitting on coins.now what to do.weather to keep or not. Please suggest me. I have some important documents. Or I must purchase other pics.

  60. I have a pi yao statue but have no idea where in my home to place him for luck and protection. Do you change out his placement each year? Any help would be appreciated.

    1. Hi Lisa,

      The Pi Yao will be moved every year and in 2017, this should be placed in the east facing towards the west.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi DR,

      The best sleeping directions for a male are: W, NE, SW and NW.
      The best sleeping directions for a female are: E, SE, N and S.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  61. Hi Michael, thanks for your promptly replied. I didn’t see it before. Is there a specific site that would tell me where to place it every year?

    Thanks again,
    Dee

  62. Hi..good day.
    My east sector is an outdoor garden. Is it ok to place my pi yao on a pillar in the garden. It has a nice position looking to into the home to the west wall. However, there is no shade in the garden, so it is open to rain and sunlight. please advise.

    Regards,
    Jasmine

    1. Hi Jasmine,

      If you have a missing sector of your home, I would not worry about placing a Pi Yao as this area has a lot less chance of being afftected.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  63. Hello Michael,

    I am so confused. I recently bought a Pi Yao(only one), and I was going to place it on the middle of the living room, facing the entrance door of the condo (northeastish). My door is in front of the elevator and stairs but, I think Tai Sui is on the West this year? How should I place it? Also, when you say ” Pi Yao is nicely sited within 50mm (Chai), what do you really mean. Now I’m not sure what to do, I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.

    1. Hi Dee,

      as of 3rd February 2017, you should place the Pi Yao in the east of your home or office, facing towards the west.

      The Pi Yao is sized to a fortunate Feng Shui measurement (Chai) which brings good fortunes.

      I hope this helps, Dee.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  64. Hi,
    I’m happy to read the details about Piao. I have currently 2 pairs of them which my sister advice me to find Piao. It’s very complicated referred to my life .After having Piao I am used to read online about Piao. And it helps me to feel better.

    Thank you for sharing .

    Regards ,
    Rina

    1. Hi Rina,

      I am glad to hear they are making you feel better, pi yao is a lovely protection to have in any home or office.

      Warm wishes

      Daniel

  65. Hi,
    I live in an apartment block. My neighbour\’s front door faces mine. I noticed that my neighbour has a pi yao facing his front door and therefore, facing directly into my home. I was told this is not good for me. What can I do to remedy this?

    1. Hi Edward,

      This should not cause you a problem as this is not directly in your home and is blocked between two doors. I would not worry about this, Edward.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Thanks for your reply. Usually my neighbour leaves his front door open when he is home…and so do I…but I have now started to close my front door when his is open.

        Thanks for your advice. Very much appreciate it.

  66. Hello Daniel,

    After reading the article on Pi Yao, my initial reaction is to purchase one. And then I realized per your article the recommended placement is in the Northeast sector. The northeast sector of my home is my bathroom. Is the master bathroom a good placement for this little statue? Both my husband and I are rats.

    Kindly,

    Nikki

    1. Hi Nikki,

      The bathroom is fine to place a Pi Yao in as long as it is on display (on a windowsill or cabinet etc).

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. Hi my name is nikka and i just bought one piyao and wondering if i can buy another piyao, but i got the single one,not the couple piyao? Is it possible to get 2 tge same piyao in the house but not the couple one and treated them the same? Thank you

      1. Hi Nikka,

        It will be fine to use more than one Pi Yao in your home so I would not worry about this. The couple Pi Yao is actually a pair of Fu Dogs which are male and female and are used for the entrances to the home.

        Kind regards,
        Daniel
