I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve said this, but hunting for a good house is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your life. I’ve stated time and again that the house you stay in will definitely have an impact on you but this isn’t something people appreciate as the effects of feng shui take a very long time to set in. In the past. It’s argued that it takes at least three years for the full effects to set in. That aside, there comes a point in a feng shui practitioner’s career where he or she will be able to see how the effects of the house manifest in real life. Every house has ‘story’, and that ‘story’ is how the life of the tenants unfold.
What Is The Feng Shui Story Of A House
Where the house is facing and how the internal layout is structured has an effect on the tenants. These things are the signs of the house we use to figure out how the lives of the tenants unfold.
Let’s take this house structure for example:
This is a house where the main door is in the Northwest sector and the master bedroom is in the Northeast sector. These two sectors are in harmony so this layout is actually not bad. However, we’ve still yet to assess one last critical sector which is where the kitchen lands. Depend on where, this house may end up being good for male head of the house, but detrimental to the wife and children.
The reason why I say that a house tells a practitioner a story is because you will find that the famility dynamics reflect what the books says.
Why is this so?
Your House Feng Shui Is A Reflection Of Nature’s Laws Too
Feng shui, after all, is a reflection of nature’s laws too. Our homes are a natural reflection of that. So as long as you understand nature’s laws, you will be able to use its signs and symbols to deduce what happens to someone’s life.
The purpose of a feng shui audit is to point these things out to you.
More often than not, it’s already too late because most people purchase a house first before engaging a practitioner, so what’s left to be done is just to remain self-aware and try to alter the cours through your own will.
There’s no need to get upset about a flawed house you bought, because in all honesty, the houses we end up in are fated.
Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing A Condo
Purchasing a house is a huge deal, especially in Singapore.
The very first reason why it’s a huge deal is because of the ridiculous prices. In a land-scarce country, property prices are ridiculous and most of us will be trying to repay our debts all the way till our retirement. The last thing you want is to purchase a house with bad feng shui especially when it costs so much.
A lot of people who reach out like to ask one thing, “What is the best facing direction for feng shui?” Most of the massume that as long as you get the facing direction right, everything will be fine.
I wish to point out that this is an incorrect approach and it’s a very flawed way of hunting for a house.
Nuances Of Feng Shui’s “Best Facing Directions”
Let’s take Period 8 feng shui for example.
You will hear that Northeast is the best-facing direction, and Southeast too because of a special Flying Star structure it has. But people who aren’t careful won’t realize that when we say Southwest, it’s only referring to 202.5 to 232.5 degrees. 232.5 to 247.5 degrees is actually an extremely bad direction even though it’s still technically facing Southwest. Even within the 202.5 to 232.5 range, there are still some small details one will need to look out for.
There are several special Flying Star structures which a lot of laypeople do not take into account when planning for their house purchase. Some of these Flying Star structures are rare, and one special one you might have heard of is called ‘7-Stars Knot’ or 七星打劫。
Ignoring The Internal Layout of The House
Facing directions is one consideration, but we shouldn’t forgte that the internal of the house matters a whole lot too.
As I mentioned in my blog post on how feng shui audits are conducted, your house layout is like the foundation of the house. You do not just want a house undergoing a good Period or phase – youl’l definitely want your foundations to be strong too. It’s like how having a good natal astrological chart because a strong natal chart gets you even further.
Do not underestimate the significant of the house layout, because if there’s one thing that paints the most accurate picture of the tenants’ lives, it’s the house layout.
Houses With Good Feng Shui Are Extremely Hard To Find
This is something I want to make clear.
A lot of feng shui masters out there conduct their craft as thought every house is a good house. They are not comfortable with telling clients bad news in fear of a bad review, because the truth is that there’s not much a feng shui practitioner can do in this day and age to make a house better. You can’t change layouts so easily and you certainly can’t shift the orientation of the building.
Goood houses are extremely hard to find, because not everyone deserves to be in a good house. It’s just like how only the minority has a good BaZi chart.
If there’s one thing I want to tell prospective clients, it’s to manage your expectations. Whether you get a house with good feng shui or not really depends on your karma. A good, ethical feng shui practitioner is one that will be honest with you and tell you things as it is. Lying to you or sugar-coating things is not going to help you change the course of your life.
