Feng Shui


buildingWhen doing Feng Shui audit, the most critical part is figuring out the “facing” and “sitting” of the house because this determines the energy distribution within the property.

“Sitting” is also called “mountain” in Feng Shui terms.  This obviously implying the “back” of the house.  “Facing” is the angle measured based on the “sitting” of the house.

However, how to define “facing” and “sitting” is not this simple.  The topic remains a “hot potato” in Feng Shui circle.

Approaches to facing and sitting:

  • Using door location as facing– the opposite of door facing will be the sitting.
  • Using mountain or back-support (buildings at the back) to determine facing– door location may not be the opposite side of mountain.
  • Using the “yang-est” side like big open space or ocean or the side with most street traffic as facing– even the door may be at the back of this “facing”.
  • For Qi-Men-Dun-Jia Feng Shui (non-divination type)– door location is very flexible and can be located in any trigram or palace.

For multiple storeys building with multiple tenants:

  1. Using the main entrance of the building as the facing,  the opposite of door facing will be the sitting— all the units/ apartments will use the same sitting/ facing.
  2. Using the main door location of individual unit/ apartment as the facing,  the opposite of door facing will be the sitting.
  3. Using the “yang-est” side (side with most windows/ balcony) of individual unit/ apartment as the facing,  the opposite side will be the sitting.
  4. Combination of #1 and 3 with this rule:  For storeys 1 to X (“X” usually is10+) storey, use rule #1 and after “Xth” storey, use rule #2.  The rationale is “Xth” below storeys will be more affected by earth energy and “Xth” above will be affected more by “heaven” or star energy.

There are numerous arguments on which method is more “correct” using how “qi” or energy travels and moves around a house.  For example, the argument against using the yang-est side of a highrise apartment as facing:  qi must be carried by people into the apartment.  People walk through building main entrance, take the elevator and walk to their apartment door.  They do not and cannot walk into their apartment through the balcony high above ground.

I have deliberately skipped the argument on whether “facing” OR “sitting” is more important to keep this short.

Regardless of the arguments, most schools think their method is the best!  This is why if you hire Feng Shui practitioners from different schools, you may get totally opposite readings if facing/ sitting measurement methods are different.

The term “ghost-gate” (鬼门) exists long before the term “Feng Shui” was coined.  You can find this term in the ancient text of Yi-jing.

Ancient text claims that “ghost-gate” is in northeast or Gen trigram, where spirits or ghosts entering or leaving.  Ancient people like to build temples on this location to facilitate spiritual communications.

Modern views do not think ghost-gate is really ghost-ridden, but the energy here is very “yin“.

There are two types of ghost-gate line.  The line at the center of northeast region (Gen trigram) is called “outward ghost-gate line表鬼门. The other one at the southwest (Kun trigram) is called “inner ghost-gate line里鬼门.

These two angles have the most “yin” energy within 360 degrees.

In terms of Feng Shui, doors, toilet seat, stove, fridge, air-conditioner, washing machine, hi-fi, TV, wealth position……, should not be placed on this ghost-gate line.  Inauspicious events or misfortune may happen if items with movements are placed on these ghost-gate lines.

Negative events will happen to male owner mostly if outward ghost-gate line is violated and to woman owner if inner ghost-gate line is provoked.

Negative effects will be more severe if main door sits on ghost-gate line.  It will be the worst if this door is also facing a T-junction or other form-sha energy like a “sickle sha” or “heart-piercing sha“.

I have just read an article about earth’s shifting magnetic pole affecting the runway labels of Boeing airfield.

http://www.seattletimes.com/business/boeing-aerospace/pilots-check-your-bearings-boeing-field-catches-up-with-earths-magnetic-field/

This article quotes NASA, “.… the magnetic north pole has crept northward by more than 600 miles since the early 19th century and is currently migrating northward about 40 miles per year.  When the magnetic poles shift more than five degrees, the rounded numbers used to designate runways need to be changed.

This natural phenomenon also affects Feng Shui measurements because Feng Shui formula (li-qi) depends on magnetic field.

If your house is sitting around the middle of a “mountain” (15 degrees region), shifting 1 or 2 degrees may not change the Feng Shui conditions much.  But if the house is within 2.5 degrees to the borderline of a mountain, it could fall into the “replacement star” region and even worse, small void line and even big void line (depending on the mountain).  Read the following blog articles for what happens if your house sits on a void line.

Therefore, one should have a new Feng Shui audit once every few years or at least do another magnetic measurement, to make sure your house does not fall into a void line. Read the following link of my void line articles for what happens if your house sits on a void line and other factors that may push your house into a void line other than earth’s shifting magnetic pole.

When one walks into a house, one could easily predict if the residents have health problems or not.  It sounds like magic but it is really simple after you have read this article.

In Feng Shui, a house can also represent the body of the residents.  A house is divided into 8 sectors along the Bagua or 8-trigrams theory.  Each sector represents certain family member and organ.  For example, northwest or Qian sector represents the father or oldest male of the house.  It also represents the head or lungs in a body.

We keep it simple here by focusing on the location of bathroom (toilet) and kitchen locations and its effect on the health and other aspects of the residents.

KITCHEN/ TOILET LOCATION AND RESIDENT HEALTH

According to Yi-Jing (“Book of Changes”), “Fortune and misfortune are attributable to movement.”.  Kitchen and toilet have the most traffic or movements within a house.  So its location has significant effects on the well-being of the residents.

If kitchen or toilet is in the northwest side of a house, the oldest male or father of the house will have less luck or someone has headache or lung problem.  Northwest is the Qian trigram location and stands for father.

If kitchen or toilet is in the southwest side of a house, the oldest female or mother of the house is likely a weakling or someone has spleen or  stomach problems.  Southwest is the Kun trigram location and stands for mother.

If kitchen or toilet is in the east side of a house, the eldest son or 40+ years old male of the house is likely has mental problem or someone has liver or gallbladder problems.  Southwest is the Zhen trigram location and stands for eldest son.

If kitchen or toilet is in the southeast side of a house, the eldest daughter or 40+ years old female of the house may lack luck or someone has liver or gallbladder problems.  Southeast is the Xun trigram location and stands for eldest daughter.

If kitchen or toilet is in the north side of a house, the middle son or middle-age   male  of the house is likely having little or no luck or someone has kidney or urological problems.  Southwest is the Kan trigram location and stands for middle son.

If kitchen or toilet is in the south side of a house, the middle daughter or middle-age female of the house is likely having little or no luck or someone has heart or blood vessels problems.  South  is the Li  trigram location and stands for middle daughter.

If kitchen or toilet is in the northeast side of a house, the youngest son or young or teenage male of the house is likely having little or no luck or someone has stomach or spleen problems.  Southwest is the Gen trigram location and stands for youngest son.

If kitchen or toilet is in the west side of a house, the youngest daughter or young or teenage female of the house is likely having little or no luck or someone has respiratory problems.  Southwest is the Dui trigram location and stands for youngest daughter.

TOILET LOCATION,  ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE AND RELATIONSHIP

Toilet location may also affect the academic performance of your children.  Make sure the location representing your kid has no toilet.  Another precaution is the 4-academic star location of your house should have no toilet on it or the academic performance of the residents suffer.

For women live in a house with toilet in Qian (NW) sector of the house, they are likely have problem keeping a man in the house or the man has weak character and/or does not want to stay home.

Consult your Feng Shui teacher for remedies (or take my Feng Shui courses).

winstonchurchill1Winston Churchill had a famous saying, “We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us.”  It describes the interactions and influences between residents and the layout or design of the building.  This is the bread and butter of architects.

In Feng Shui, we have a similar notion of how house-shape affects the organic well-being of the occupants.  A house can project its characteristics onto the body and even social relationship of the occupants.  For example,  a house with missing northwest corner is likely to be a house without a male breadwinner or at least with a weak one.  Occupants are likely to have respiratory-related illness.

In this post, we focus on precautions for pregnant woman in terms of house missing corners.

FIRST PREGNANCY:  If this is your first pregnancy and know the baby is a boy, make sure the east side of your house is not a missing corner.  East or Zhen direction represents the eldest son.

If this is your first pregnancy and know the baby is a girl, make sure the southeast side of your house is not a missing corner.  Southeast or Xun direction represents the eldest daughter.

If  this is your first pregnancy and do not know the gender of the baby,  make sure the east and southeast side of your house have no missing corners.  

SECOND PREGNANCY:  Second pregnancy is a little bit complicated because you need to consider the gender result of first pregnancy.

If this is your second pregnancy and know the baby is a boy AND previous birth is also a boy, make sure the north side of your house is not a missing corner.  North or Kan direction represents the second or middle son.  If the previous birth is a girl, make sure east side is not missing.

If this is your second pregnancy and know the baby is a girl AND previous birth is a boy, make sure the southeast side of your house is not a missing corner.  If the previous birth is also a girl, make sure south side is not missing.  South or Li direction represents middle daughter.

If you do not know the gender of the second pregnancy, make sure north, east, southeast and south side do not have missing corners.

THIRD PREGNANCY:  If this is your third pregnancy and know the baby is a boy AND previous two births are also boys, make sure the northeast side of your house is not a missing corner.  Northeast or Gen direction represents youngest or third son.  If previous two births are both girls, make sure east side is not missing.

If this is your third pregnancy and know the baby is a girl AND previous two births are boys, make sure the southeast side of your house is not a missing corner.  If previous two births are both girls, make sure west side is not missing.  West or Dui direction represents youngest or .third daughter.

If you do not know the gender of your third pregnancy, make sure north, south, east, west, southeast, and northeast sides are not missing.

If this is your forth pregnancy……  you are too “productive” and probably overworking yourself to death either in bed or at work!

Consult a Feng Shui practitioner or take my “Advanced Visual Form Feng Shui” course for remedies.

Note:  I have just posted the following message in my “Advanced Visual Form Feng Shui” discussion list.

A 6-storeys tall building is near a flyover which is taller than the building in a Tai-yuan city, Shangxi Province of China.

A few days ago, within a few hours, the building becomes an 8-storeys building!

When look closer, the new “storeys” are spray-printed image of storeys on canvas on a metal frame. 


 

 

The reason for this new addition is because numerous non-old-aged residents had died of cancer in last few years.  The residents suspect it has something to do with the flyover and seek the help of a Feng Shui master. 

The master said the flyover is higher than the building and “suppresses” the blessing for the building.  He suggests making the building higher than the flyover as remedy.

After the “instant growth” of the new canvas “storeys“, the building is 10cm taller than the flyover.  70+ households in the building have paid for the expenses involved.

Do you think this remedy will work?  Will the fix make things better or worse? If you were the FS guy, what would you recommend instead?
