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.

There are rotating circular house videos and pictures floating around the web like this one:

http://www.treehugger.com/sustainable-product-design/seven-rotating-houses-and-towers-that-turn-our-crank.html

The biggest problem of doing Feng Shui for circular houses, especially rotating ones, is the determination of the sitting and facing of the house.

One way to have non-rotating door is to “hang” the donut-shaped house onto a cylindrical pillar that does not rotate– like a mushroom.

“Mushroom” design has an disadvantage of seeing a wall upon entering the house– not great for psychological well-being.  The “Form Feng Shui” implication for the residents will be “hitting obstacles wherever they go“. Besides, energy or qi does not flow well with this design.

Some Feng Shui schools use the “yang-est” (brightest) side as facing.
Determining the facing will be problematic
a circular house has “360 degree view” or windows around its perimeter.

In addition, some rotating circular houses rotates one round within an hour or two, the qi or energies entering the house will be very mixed or simply neutralized each other out.

In terms of Form Feng Shui, circle stands for metal energy.  I have seen hospitals in Mexico, Singapore and some other countries are built into circular shape–  metal energy is good for doing surgery.  Residents whose energy profile like wood or wood in nature will suffer limp injury or traffic accidents. But it is good for professionals who are surgeons or doctors.

The probability having a spiral staircase in the middle of the house for mushroom-shaped house is pretty high.  This is another “Feng Shui hazard’ in terms of Form Feng Shui.  It looks like a giant cork-screw twisting into the heart of the house.  The Feng Shui implication is certain person in the house will have higher probability of suffering heart problem or accident.

There are some positive features that one can derive from a rotating house.  For examples:

(note: all examples here require limiting rotating to 45 degrees once every 3 months or at most once a month)

  • arrange your bedroom sector or where one stays most of the time to sit on the current “timely” star of the year (eg. 8-white star) to enhance wealth luck
  • arrange your bedroom to sector that promotes health or recuperation
  • arrange your bedroom to 1-6-8 star locations to “make” a baby boy

The principle is simple– always put your ass on the sectors with auspicious star combinations.

In short, a rotating house, especially the ones with a rotating door, is Feng Shui researchers’ delight to do scientific experiments to verify various Feng Shui theories and claims.  We need someone like Bill Gates who would donate a few billions for Feng Shui enthusiasts to do experiments.

“Hi Ken, can you give some Feng Shui tips to the residents of rotating houses?”

The residents can rotate the house in such a way that the auspicious stars fall onto their bedrooms sectors and turn off the rotating motor in the evenings.  So the residents can absorb positive energies during their sleep instead of the aimless energy flows during the day.  They need to replace the spiral staircase with something non-spiral or tragedy is likely to happen within 6 years or no longer than 12 years.

Below is taken from a message from my “4P Bootcamp” discussion list.

Hi Ken and others,

Student Comment: It appears that feng shui has an influence at least on people’s personality. I observed people living in different areas of the country or world behave differently.

Ken: Yes, there are regional difference in macro Feng Shui which affect not only the personality but also physical appearance of the people there. For example, people born in China’s Soo Zhou and Hang Zhou regions, where water and mountains are pretty, tend to be physically attractive too, not to mention there are many famous scholars and poets born in those areas in the past thousand years or so.

Then we have micro level Feng Shui that affect individual households. From my experience, I found that personal luck is likely to synchronize with Feng Shui . I told people if they feel their current luck is great, then fire the Feng Shui master and just grab a house. It will have good Feng Shui . But if you feel your current luck is low, you need to find a Feng Shui guy to help you. 

Some people intentionally or unintentionally overblow the power of Feng Shui. Feng Shui’s basic premise is to live in harmony with nature. Everything else are just by-products. It does not intend to make you rich, to have good relationship, to beat recession or not getting sick. Even His Holiness Delai Lama gets sick from time to time and consults a doctor. The richest man in the world is not a Feng Shui master. In fact, many famous Feng Shui masters in history died poor. What did these mean? One’s fate or destiny is more important than Feng Shui, not to mention personal cultivation and behaviors that also affect one’s karma and luck.

Student Comment: My question is: does Feng Shui influence one’s luck? 

Ken: Yes, a Hong Kong sifu of mine had found that people with good Feng Shui , when they have traffic accident, their injury will be minimized or not severe. Another study in Taiwan about air-crash victims showed that their house Feng Shui tend to have problem like void line (no qi or energy coming into the house). 

So it seems that the relationship between Feng Shui and 4-Pillars is like this: if personal luck is bad, good Feng Shui will mitigate the negative effect. If one has good luck but his house Feng Shui is bad, the negative effect will not be as severe or mitigated. With bad personal luck and bad Feng Shui — your life will be very challenging. 

There are people who do not believe in San-sha (3-killings) and 5-yellow and dug in those areas and bragged about nothing negative happen. It did not happen YET because their current luck is probably on the high side. 

The negative effect may come a few years later— when your luck is low! Few people can enjoy good luck all the time. 

Some years ago Taiwan’s China Airline had a crash with many of its executives killed on-board. Taiwan Feng Shui masters had traced back that the company had violated San Sha a few years ago when they built their new headquarters. 

Student Comment: For example,  why there are more countries that suffer poverty, famine, and war than developed nations?

Ken: This has to do with the “earth luck” of those regions. It switches according to the lao-shu (post-heaven bagua) theoretically. For example, now is Period 8 and the auspicious region will be NE of any country or NE of the world. 

Student Comment: Does it mean good 4P charts and bad charts are not evenly distributed around the world?

Ken: There is no study done about the distribution of good and bad 4P charts. There are about a few hundred babies born every minute around the world with the same 4P charts. Of course, they will not have same luck and life experience. Different geography and birth environments (including social class background) will affect people with same 4P chart differently. 

There is a 4P story about two babies born at the same time– one was born on a ship and another born in the shop of a blacksmith. The one born on water became a major government official while the blacksmith’s son become a blacksmith. Then someone move this blacksmith son to the capital and study. He became an official too. 

Their natal chart liked water. Temperature adjustment in a 4P chart is very important. Very often, the difference between a rich man and a very rich man is the latter has temperature adjustment.

Student Comment: Majority of people in a 3rd world country are born with bad charts, or the ones with good charts managed to leave the country, or the ones born with good charts will have bad luck as well if they live in a city/country with bad Feng Shui?

Ken: Everything is relative. What’s considered “poor” here may sound like paradise in some other countries. The “poor” in USA still have cable TV and steady supply of food– compare this lifestyle to some third world poor, it is not bad at all. I don’t think majority of people in third world countries born with bad charts, just the ones with “good” charts may suffer less. 

Personally I think your “yun” or luck periods are more important than your Bazi natal chart and Feng Shui . When you are in good luck period, you can pick a house with good Feng Shui with your eyes blindfolded. 

To conclude, 4P interacts with Feng Shui , geography (hot or cold climate), birth environments, your personal choices and perhaps, your past lives too (if you believe in Buddhism). 

Student Comment:
I ask this because people are always looking to change aspects of their lives i.e.) better job opportunities, less stressful life, etc. by moving to a different area. But is it really helpful? 

Ken: Yes, if your chart dislikes fire and you live in say, Malaysia (hot area), your luck will be better if you move to Minnesota (cold place). I have tested this out myself!
