FENG SHUI: GLUE GOLD COIN TO YOUR DOORSTEP FOR LUCK

I guess it works. But just in case, use really strong glue. -Editor

HERE'S a story which will have you rushing home to glue a gold coin to your doorstep. A retired Sydney man who did just that after reading an article about feng shui became an instant millionaire thanks to a stroke of good fortune. The ex-policeman, aged in his 50s, picked a winning ticket in the latest BoysTown charity lotto, netting him a luxury house on the Sunshine Coast worth more than $1.2 million. He reckons his stroke of luck was all down to the gold coin. Since gluing it in place in November, he's also won two lotto prizes worth more than $1000. "I had lost a fair bit of money, so I thought ... why not!" he said of adopting the feng shui practice. "I was pretty embarrassed about it at the time."

Local feng shui practitioners are playing down the connection, though. -Editor

Gold symbolises wealth. Check. Coins represent money. Check. The front door represents good energy coming into your house. Check.

So when a Sydney man glued a gold coin to his front doorstep in November, he believed he had checked all the feng shui boxes for a windfall - which he got after winning more than $1.2 million at the BoysTown charity lotto.

But had the ex-policeman unlocked an ancient Chinese art of hitting the jackpot?

"I have coins in my front door, but that doesn't mean they are going to win a million bucks," said Wiggins, who is president of the Association of Feng Shui consultants.

"Is this part of traditional feng shui? Not it's not."
