Q: I had a very serious relationship with a guy. We were planning to get married in another year or so. He wanted to be established in his business before tying the knot. Last month he went to Delhi on a brief business trip. He brought a gift for me: Two pairs of high-end, well-crafted scissors. It was an ideal gift for me as I am a fashion designer. In less than a week there was a misunderstanding and we had a quarrel. The tension still continues. Do you think it has to do with the gift he brought for me? I am also not getting as many orders as I used to get. What is the remedy?
A: It is believed that you should never give / accept a gift of knives or scissors. A gift of anything that is sharp and pointed or hostile carries negative energies and causes bad Feng Shui for the recipient of the gift. You can nullify the effect by paying for it. It can even be a token payment. This symbolizes that you have purchased the gift. I suggest that you make payment to your boy friend as consequences of such a gift can sometime be very tragic.
