What is a Wu Lou?
(Written by Michael Hanna)

Several people have mailed me over the months asking, "What is a Wu Lou"? and how do you use one? 

A Wu Lou also known as Calabash, Gourd or "giver of life" is traditionally used to cure the #2 & #5 sickness and bad luck stars, this year you would place them in the north or southeast, we have around 4 - 5 in our home at any one time as we sometimes use them with the monthly stars depending on where they are located, this month (September) ours will be in the north, southea st, east and south.

We have used them in our home and business for twenty odd years but only this year found a suitable one we would sell on our site, as they have to be of good size and weight to be effective. Thousands of years ago they were more commonly known as the "giver of life" and were placed beside the bed of a sick person to improve health and good luck.

The Wu Lou (Calabash) is a fruit and when dried was used to store medicine or water, this is how it got its name "giver of life" its shape was replicated into brass (metal weakens earth) and this is why it is used to absorb the negative energy of the 2 & 5 bad luck stars.

They are an extremely powerful traditional and authentic cure and one of the few cures you should use on a monthly basis. To give you an idea of what they look like follow the link below.
