Feng Shui

The universe is divided into three parts.

  1. Heaven
  2. Earth
  3. All living species (Human)

Humans are between Heaven and Earth. Human life is affected by seasonal (Heaven) and environmental (Earth) changes.

Feng Shui is divided into three types which affects Heaven, Earth and Humans.

1. Heaven - Flying Stars

In traditional Chinese feng shui, "heaven feng shui" refers to the practice of aligning a building or structure with the patterns and movements of the stars and planets. This can include taking into account the cardinal directions, the position of the stars and planets at the time of construction, and the alignment of the structure with the flow of qi (energy) in the environment.

The idea behind heaven feng shui is that the universe is a vast and powerful force, and aligning with its natural rhythms and patterns can bring positive energy and good luck to the people living within a structure. Practitioners of heaven feng shui may use tools such as the Chinese almanac and the luopan, a traditional Chinese compass, to determine the best time and location for construction.

2. Earth - House Position

Feng shui is a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing everyone with the surrounding environment. It is closely linked to the traditional Chinese understanding of the flow of qi (energy) through the environment and its effects on the people living within it.

One aspect of feng shui is called "earth feng shui," which refers to the practice of aligning a building or landscape with the natural features of the surrounding land. This can include positioning a structure in relation to a mountain or river, or designing a garden to complement the existing topography. The idea is to create a balance and harmony between the built environment and the natural one, in order to promote good luck and prosperity for the people living there.

Key Notes:

  • Earth Feng Shui focuses on the position of the house and the directions of the area in the house.
  • Earth Feng Shui includes the Ba Zhai Feng Shui, or Eight Positions of the House Feng Shui ( AKA 8 Mansion Feng Shui), is one of the classical Chinese feng shui.
  • When looking at a house’s Feng Shui using Eight Directions, the House’s position takes precedent over your Life/Human position.
  • The Ba Zhai house chart depends on the house sitting and facing direction. When you move to a new place, the house chart will be different.

Feng Shui is a traditional Chinese practice that seeks to create balance and harmony between people and their environment. One aspect of feng shui is determining the "life direction" or "Kua number" of a person, which is believed to affect their health, wealth, and overall well-being.

To determine your life direction, you first need to find your Kua number. This is done by using your birth year, as well as your gender. Once you have your Kua number, you can use it to determine which direction is your auspicious or favorable direction, and which direction is your inauspicious or unfavorable direction.

The auspicious or favorable direction is considered to be the direction that will bring you good luck and positive energy, while the inauspicious or unfavorable direction is considered to be the direction that will bring you bad luck and negative energy.

Once you know your Kua number and favorable and unfavorable direction, you can use this information to make changes to your home or office to enhance the flow of positive energy, such as placing your bed or desk in the favorable direction, or avoiding sitting with your back to the unfavorable direction.
