Feng Shui - a Chinese term in which the character “Feng” means “wind”, and “shui”

means “water”. Feng Shui is about assessing the energy or “qi” pattern in the living

environment and how to position ourselves to harness the positive qi. It is a form

of metaphysical science -that is to say, it has neither religious nor superstitious


The roots of Feng Shui can be traced to the classic I-Ching (the “Book of

Changes”). Historically, Feng Shui was used to site buildings - often spiritually

significant structures such as tombs, but also dwellings and other structures - in an

auspicious manner. Depending on the particular style of feng shui being used, an

auspicious site could be determined by reference to local features such as bodies of

water, stars, or a compass.

As the subject is little known by the general public, some has claimed it to be a

superstitious practice, while others equate the practice of Feng Shui with the use of

good luck charms and objects to bring wealth.

It should be clarified that Feng Shui is not about buying good luck items. Feng

Shui is not interior designing where special decorations are required to change one’s

luck or placement of charms to thwart one’s ill fortunes.

Originated from Chinese astronomy, Feng Shui has a history of more than 3,500

years even before the invention of the magnetic compass. Its astronomical history of

is evident in the development of instruments and techniques. Ancient Chinese used

stars to determine the north-south axis of settlements.

The invention of the magnetic compass marked a significant step in the study of

Feng Shui. Traditional Feng Shui instrumentation consists of the luopan or the earlier

south-pointing spoon.

The goal of Feng Shui as practised today is to site human dwellings and

workplaces on spots with good qi, which is defined as

a movable positive or negative “life force”. In Chinese

martial arts, it refers to the “energy” that flows through

one’s body and surroundings.

Based on the principles of balance between yin

and yang, Feng Shui extols the understanding of nature

and how it affects human habitation and well-being.

Such understanding allows man to be better in tune

with this environment and reap the benefits of such


Systems of Feng Shui

Classical Feng Shui consists of two main systems:

• San He (Three Harmony). This involves observation

of environmental forms, particularly mountains

and bodies of water. Here, the “mountains”

can refer to actual mountains or tall buildings,

telecommunication towers and so on. “Water” can

refer to the sea, lakes, rivers or roads, pathways

and so on.

• San Yuan (Three Cycles), which is based on the

observation of qi influence and timeliness of stars.

San He System

The San He System is the first and oldest school of

The crux of Feng Shui is the balance of energies for better living.

and bedroom(s). By combining your life gua and your house gua, you will be able to

position yourself in your home with favourable results. The Eight Mansions system

can also help you understand your compatibility with another person and how to

locate the productive areas in your office.

Flying Stars is a sophisticated system that includes the analysis of time in the study

of how qi affects a building, whether a home or an office. This system considers the

magnetic or physical orientation of the building, together with the year it was built,

and applies the figure to a series of complex mathematical diagrams to identify its qi

structure. “Stars” refers to the nine numbers of the Lo Shu, the primary diagram used

that denotes motion, transformation and the interaction of qi around an individual.

Benefits of Feng Shui

Feng Shui is a study in precision. The interaction between the environment and the

individual is never the same for different places and different people. Therefore,

effective Feng Shui must be personalised. A typical consultation involves on-site

inspection of the landscape (environment), an analysis of the occupants’ birth data

and observation of the qi structure of the premise.

Feng Shui begins with the placement and design of buildings and extends to

even minute details within the physical setting. The position and angle of doors;

the location of the stove; the direction of the beds - all of these can be adjusted to

enhance positive qi which in turn contributes to the inhabitants’ health, prosperity

and happiness.

Being wealthy isn’t just about money. It’s also about happiness, health and well-

being. Good Feng Shui can enhance our family’s health, peace and harmony.

At the work place, Feng Shui can create an environment that is conducive for

better concentration and improved performance.

Obvious benefits, which follow as a matter of

consequence, are promotions and better income.

With good Feng Shui and having a positive

attitude, your deeds and actions can help achieve

your goals in life.

Feng Shui. This system focuses on the surrounding

physical environment to identify the convergence of qi

on the land. This spot of convergence, also called the

dragon’s lair, is the point where positive qi pools and is

an excellent spot to locate your home, workspace and

even your place of burial.

Reputedly originating from the southern part of

China, the School’s philosophies came about when the

ancient Chinese noticed that people who lived on the

south side of a mountain often surrounded by rolling

hills to break up the wind had good, prosperous lives.

They also noticed that certain land formations looked

like animals.

The perfect Feng Shui location, according to the San

He System, is where Green Dragon hills are in the east

and form a horse-shoe shape while the slightly lower

White Tiger hills in the west. Black Tortoise hills are in

the north and low Red Phoenix hills are in the south.

In modern day terms, buildings, trees and other

terrestrial features constitute environmental forms.

Hence, the Black Tortoise can be represented by a wall

or fence at the back of a garden while the Tiger and the

Dragon can be seen as houses and fences on each side

of a house. The Phoenix can be represented as a small

raised bed or a gentle downward slope on the front of

the house, or a bush.

The San He System is therefore a study of the way

the land is positioned around you and how to locate

your most auspicious spot.

San Yuan System

The San Yuan System is based on the observation of qi

influence and the timeliness of the stars. The luopan

is used together with sophisticated numerological

theories to calculate the effects of time and space

on an individual. The system relies on the exercise of

intellect, observation and experimentation to help an

individual tap into positive qi around him.

There are two popular practices within the San

Yuan System:

eight Mansions refers to the eight cardinal directions

of a compass. Under this system, these directions

are divided into two groups: the East group and the

West group. By calculating an individual’s personal

life gua (determined by his birth year and gender),

the Feng Shui master can determine to which group

the individual belongs and how compatible he is with

his surroundings. The Eight Mansions system also

identifies your house gua, showing you the directions

and locations within the premise which hold positive

qi. This is important to help you plan out the location

of key home features such as the main door, kitchen
