Feng Shui Questions Answered

I have been collecting questions from viewers in the poll that I have posted some time back and this is one of them which I will answer…


For your example, from the master plan, there are some sectors where the houses will enjoy better feng shui than others within the same development.

Which is a better sector that enjoy better fengshui than others?

How do we know which will be better in getting better Qi?.


My Answer:

Which sector or which row of houses within the development that will enjoy better feng shui is very much dependable on several factors.

First, we need to measure because each house has different measurement. Yes you hear me right. Opposed to conventional thinking that the same row of houses will have same direction is certainly not true. So first we need to measure to know for sure what is the Qi prevailing in each houses. What Qi is prevailing, we will have to know the Flying Star Chart. There is no short cut but to measure the house.

Secondly, the landforms surrounding the houses is different for each house. E.g. a junction could be facing 1 or 2 houses but the rest of the houses will not be subjected to this. I again re-iterate here that junctions are not necessary bad. Another way of saying is also the location of mountains, water and other factors are also different relatively to each houses. You can see the illustration below. The blue spot is at different locations for different houses in the same row.

Here I would like to remind again that land forms is not necessarily about Green Dragons, White Tigers, Black Turtle and the Red Phoenix. This is a wide misconceptions in the study of Chinese Feng Shui.

There is also the ‘Flying Star’ land forms that you need to consider. (Big Wu Chang Secret! Haha…)

Thirdly, each house in the same row may have different designs or mirror images. In Malaysia, it is now a trend where the same row has alternate designs of house such as Type A,B,C,A,B,C…along the same row of houses.

Fourthly, each house may have arranged things differently. I mean the bed, the rooms, the stove etc. Hence, your sleeping directions or the location of your bedroom, bed will also be different.

Lastly, different people have different Ming Gua, 命卦 (Life Gua or Personal Gua). The effects will also be different on different individuals.

So without measuring we won’t be able to tell for sure. Once we have measured, plotted the Flying Star chart and ascertained the above factors, then we can tell for sure the house Feng Shui.

Feng Shui for Bedroom

Many posts have been written about bedroom feng shui. Why is there so much writen about the bedroom?

This is because the word bedroom is very much linked to romance or as a resting place?.


In feng shui practice, bedroom is about resting and reproduction and so it has great influence on the overall house feng shui.

How can a bedroom affect the overall house feng shui? This is simple list of possibilities:

1. Ability to conceive (assuming medically the couple is fit for purpose)

2. Human relationship

3. Health

There have been many tips given ranging from avoiding mirror, using color, use of essential oils, candles, placement of bed according to forms and structure of the building and many more.

Once someone asked me, ‘is it true that bedroom has to lights off or can i have small light on?’ . Well first you need to understand yourself is can you sleep with a light on? Personally, I find it difficult but my friends cannot sleep in total darkness. This is not the point of concern actually. Depending on the type of energy in the room, the master or consultant will decide if it is better to have lights on and if yes where is the best to locate it.

Occasionally, I do get questions like “do i put a mandarin duck to enhance the romance?” Well you can try but personally I do not subscribe to this theory for result.  Classical Feng Shui is more about formulas on space and time.

The basic thing a bout a bedroom is that it first has to be comfortable and clean.

Remember, the most important thing about bedroom feng shui is finding a energy location and sleep in there. This is my advice for DIY beginners.

As for a Feng shui consultant, we do look more than this level. One of the key thing that we will look for is where is that room located in the house. Then the rest sets in.

Cheers and wish you a good nite sleep!  Sincerely….the fengshui mechanic
