A business owner came to me some months ago in Kuala Lumpur. Her business was down for some years after having a feng shui job done by a famous master. The first year was alright but then later the business slowly went down hill. Feeling some is not right, she did her research and found me.
She is correct, feng shui outcome is a trend, if done correctly it should not show a down trend unless it’s a human issue but in her case, it is not.
When I went to her shop, it was quiet but she told me it was not like this in the beginning since she has been operating her business here for more than 15 years. It was after the feng shui changes it went slow and despite all the expensive feng shui “cures”, things did not improved. What went wrong ? Are cures a workable feng shui solution?
The Feng Shui Hand
This was a premise sitting East facing West close to North West. The cashier was beside the door on the White Tiger side and out side in front was a vast piece of empty land. Thus it is said to have a good ming tang (clear frontage). But same time last two years there was some construction work on going that was soon blocking off the wide area. Many friends speculated it is due to the new building that caused the business slow down.
After studying her land formations and facing, I decided I can do some adjustment to the cashier position. I consider this a fortunate case that something is still doable or that can be rectified without having to move out. Thus by matching the Earth & Man factor, I hope to turn around her stagnant business and revive her once promising business.
A True Sheng Ji Effects
THE DRAGON’S QI
Dragon’s Qi is believed to have the ability to alter a person’s destiny over time. Precisely why it is called a Dragon’s qi is because Dragon is an celestial animal that stays in heaven. Thus a dragon is a symbol of heaven’s representation. Thus why in ancient China only the Emperor are allowed to use the dragon symbol . This is because Emperor is the viewed as the Mandate of Heaven and dragon is used to represent the symbol of power mandated given by heaven.
However this same term, Dragon is also used in Feng Shui to denote the movement of the mountains that carry the Qi or energy, hence is also known as the Dragon’s Qi or Dragon’s Breath.
A mother was rather apprehensive of her daughter’s weak body. After the first miscarriage, the daughter was rather sad and depressed. This has affected her marriage and her relationship with her husband and in-laws.
THE SHENG JI PLANTING
The mother came to seek my advice and I told her she can give Sheng Ji a try.
The Sheng ji was designed according to traditional method as taught by our grand masters. An auspicious date 吉日
was selected to erect the tombstone 墓碑. The tombstone is important because without a tombstone the effect is not as strong as the one with a well feng shui and aligned tombstone.
Having a tombstone is rather important as it serves as the External Qi collector. Without a tombstone, the only Qi it receives is the Internal Qi. When both Internal and External Qi is harmonized, only the Sheng Ji can produce better results.
Slowly over the months, things started to change for her. Starting from her relationship with the husband, then the in-laws and followed by the pregnancy. However, this is not yet the climax of the story.
Determining Facing is one the most difficult process for many feng shui practitioner. It is also one of the important steps in Feng shui audit of any building especially commercial units and high rise units. Landed houses are still in my opinion relatively an easy task.
What makes matter worse is that today’s architects are coming out with creative building designs that makes our job ever harder as a Feng Shui Consultant. Unfortunately, we cannot skip this step too.
We have no choice but to bite the bullet and find out the facing of the building in order to know the facing direction of that building. We have to be very careful at this step. If we do it wrong, then the whole analysis will be flawed and risk our client’s future unless one is just doing it purely for the money.
How to Determine the Facing of the Building?
Here is a real case my student from East Malaysia (Borneo) consulted me. It is a very intriguing case since it is a new building back then and there is no history of occupants.
This multiple level building is shaped in a L formation, if you see from the top. Outside this building is a busy road junction and in the middle there is Water Fountain Splashing most of the day time. However the office is at level 3 and can accessed from both sides the stairs behind or from the convex side X of the building or through the door facing the Fountain at ground level.
At the side X is a forest bush further back and a small open car park in between.
Kitchen is a common place in every house and a very important one to a House Feng Shui. Many has this misunderstanding that other factors such as desk or bed is more important but the fact is that this is one of the most important feature of a house. However, many self profess “classical feng shui
Stove Placement 炉灶安置 for Harmony 和谐 and Health 健康
practitioners” have grossly over looked this resulting in ill health of their clients.
Thus many blindly inform clients without deeper understanding that in the Feng Shui for Kitchen,one should not built a kitchen in the North West (NW) section of the house. Having a kitchen in the NW sector is also known as Fire burning on Heaven’s gate. I am sure you have as I had observed, many kitchen in the NW belong to families that do well and healthy.
Where is the Missing Link? The key item is the stove placement and not only the kitchen location.
“Stove can affect our Health and Income.”
I have changed many stove placements and observed the changes in the family health and wealth too. There was a very particular case I did sometime back that from the stove placement, I told the client who is the wife that this stove arrangement will cause money loss and difficulty in money and thus will have to rearrange the stove.
Very often you hear some masters say Bazi is diagnosis while Feng Shui is remedy. Is this a true statement? Then there are masters who uses Bazi to determine the Nobleman star or Peach Blossom star then activate it in the respective sector in the house .
For example if in a person’s Bazi the Day Master is Jia 甲, then the Nobleman star is at Chou 丑 and Wei 未 sectors. If your Day Master is Xin 辛 then your nobleman star is at Wu 午 and Yin 寅 sectors of the house. They use the below compass to locate the sectors.

As a teacher and practicing consultant in both Bazi and Feng Shui, I beg to differ in this viewpoint. Bazi is our astrology chart that decipher our Destiny from our date and time of birth. It tells us what our life limits are, our characters, our problems and our strengths. Feng shui on the other hand is the art of harnessing Qi from the land to benefit humans. Using the knowledge of our surrounding land and direction of our house, we contain certain types of energy in our house. This energy in our house in turns affects the outcome of our life.
This is the reason why Chinese as classify the metaphysics study into 5 categories is because they are indeed different streams of practice but uses the same fundamentals.
The 5 arts are namely:
- Physiognomy – Face reading & Feng shui
- Divination – Yijing divination,
- Astrology – Fate or destiny analysis such as Bazi or Zi Wei Dou Shu.
- Medicine – Medical branch
- Philosophy and Arts – Tao and martial arts.
Thus you may see that Feng Shui and Bazi belongs to different categories. Only modern “masters” mixes them together.
Here I share a real case shared to me during the consultation after I have predicted it. (Shared with permission from person)
This is the Bazi of their person. In the reading I saw this person would lose a sum of money and most likely is from the house issue.
Why in 2016 just after Li Chun the house was burglarized? This is reflected in the Bazi.
This is another nice contribution of Feng Shui case audited by our student.
Method used: Wu Chang Flying Star Feng Shui System
Property type: Landed House.
In the Beginning
During Period 7 (1984-2003), this family had enjoyed abundance of wealth luck. Mr. L was running printing business, and there were several workers working under him.
However, after 2003, his business was getting to decline, and he was forced to move his shop to somewhere else due to the increasing of shop rental. Besides than this, his health was deteriorating and he was diagnosed as having liver cancer.
In September 2006 (丙戌), Mr. L passed away, and his eldest son, Mr. A inherited his printing business. Since then, there was no improvement at all with his business, and he had to suffer financial debts with many suppliers.
I audited their house during 2015 (乙未). Observed the main door was having untimely PO JUN star (Star #7). From the formation, I believed there will be high incidents of leg injury & indeed during discussion with Mr. A, he always injured his legs when doing heavy exercise.
Furthermore, the Stove was located at the GEN sector, with sickness combination. When the stove was sucking bad energy, it would cause sickness to the occupants. The newly wed Mrs. A always fall ill since she moved in to the house, especially in 2015 (乙未). The wrongly placed stove further weakens the health of the occupants.
Clients and students that has been doing consulting asked why San He Feng Shui does not work well. Well I guess it boils down to the practitioner and not the art.
There could be a few reasons to this,
- The practitioner did not learn the correct lineage knowledge.
- In experienced
- Wrong method or self discovered method or unproven method
- Self learn or studied from books
- Did not understand well the theory & the underlying fundamental instrument of each theory.
There are a myriad of factors that can affect the quality of a house Feng Shui. Today I am going to share one part of this case. It is a property located in a up-scale area where many rich people live. It was a case some years back.
I summarize the house chart below.
