Feng Shui is often referred to as the Chinese “Art of Placement”. Many think it is restricted only to the furnishing and decorating concepts. But there is more than an eye to it. It involved many factors such as direction, elements, number, colour, time and space. Therefore, it is crucial to look at Feng Shui as a whole, including addressing annual afflictions and the afflictions in the space.
So, if you have tried to Feng Shui your home after reading some articles with the ideas of improving your luck, wealth or simply family harmony and to no avail or already hired a consultant to help you with it but the promised results are not showing. What is going on then?
Before you dismiss the effectiveness of Feng Shui and consider it as superstition or myth, here are some pointers to help you diagnose why your Feng Shui is not working for you.
You Didn’t Implement The Suggested Changes
According to most Feng Shui Masters and Consultants on why Feng Shui is not working for them, the most common reason is that people failed to implement the suggested Feng Shui changes in their home’s setup. Just could not comprehend the logic why didn’t they implement these changes, after all, they already spent the cost for the consultation.
Based on the feedback, in most cases, it is due to the disagreement between other family members who are resisting the idea. It is understandable as people are normally reluctant to step out of their comfort zone and embrace changes. If you are facing this problem as well, you can simply get it done without mentioning anything about Feng Shui and promised to restore to the old setting if they don’t like it or couldn’t get used to it. But of course, it would be nice to negotiate with them and participate in the whole process.
You Only Implemented A Few Feng Shui Tips
Another common mistake made on Feng Shui during set-up is that it was done in bits and pieces instead of holistically. Most people get their Feng Shui information from articles or the internet and start applying those changes, thinking that those small Feng Shui adjustments can produce miracles.
As earlier mentioned, you need to look at Feng Shui as a whole. Applying a few Feng Shui tips here and there might help a little, but to get the best optimum results many things still need to be taken into consideration. That is why it is better to seek professional help from Feng Shui Consultants or you might want to take up some accredited Feng Shui Course if you believe Feng Shui can help you in your life.
Neglected Details From Other Feng Shui Rules
You followed every single detail and acted according to the instructions, patiently waiting for Miracles to happen. Then, “Nothing! Nothing happened at all!” What went wrong here? You may have read it from an article and abided by its instructions without fully understanding what Feng Shui is. You have totally overlooked other Feng Shui Rules that apply.
For instance, the article stated that you should identify the command position before placing your bed and you moved your bed accordingly. Never did you know that abiding by this rule actually conflict with another. The command position turned out to be the bed is facing the bedroom door or under a window.
It is quite easy for someone who is lack knowledge and experience to miss those details, hence making those mistakes and not receiving the desirable Feng Shui results.
You Did Not Address The Annual Afflictions
Another important factor in Feng Shui is the annual afflictions that rotate and go in cycles. Therefore, the combination of annual afflictions, the person’s KUA number and the Feng Shui of the house at that specific time can provide certain fore coming information. Not paying attention to this can result in serious consequences, such as Health, Luck and Wealth.
All Feng Shui reading, cures, and boosts should take your birth chart and building’s location, compass directions and construction date into consideration. Applying Feng Shui cures randomly will bring little or no effect at all or even adversary effects.
Your Bazi Wasn’t Integrated With Feng Shui Reading
Another much deeper and profound way in Feng Shui is the integration of personal BAZI and the above-mentioned factors (Annual afflictions and KUA) to give a more précised finding. When using KUA alone, it needs only the year of birth to calculate whereas the BAZI narrows down to the year, month, day, and time of birth of that person.
Let’s look at it this way, Feng Shui’s Kua number profiles people generally, similar to grouping it either on race or gender, it does not reflect who that individual person really is. With the use of the Bazi, the year, month, day, and time of birth are required. Therefore, more detailed findings such as health, personality, and which of the Five Elements you need to boost your life can be obtained.
So, if you’re wondering why that Feng Shui wealth setup is not working for you, it could be that your Bazi requires some other type of Feng Shui setup.
You Neglected Macro Feng Shui
When we talk about Feng shui, we are referring to the coexistence and harmony of the surrounding, not just what is happening inside the house. The environmental issue is just as equally vital, if not even more. Many tend to focus only on the space that are they living in without realising they are also subjected to a greater impact from the external factors.
The external environment Feng Shui and the neighbourhood has a great impact on your overall well-being. For example, you found a perfect Feng Shui house that met all your prerequisite criteria but was surrounded by trash processing facilities or other types of Feng Shui hazards house (such as houses at the end of T-junction). Do you think you’ll benefit from living there? I doubt so.
You Consulted Too Many Experts
We often heard people suggest getting a second opinion when engaging in any other professional services. It can be good at times however, consulting too many can be a problem too. You might consume by those overwhelming advice from different sources.
Furthermore, as we all know that the art of Feng Shui has many schools of thought. Especially the Tibetan Black Hat Sec and the classic Feng Shui. One should never mix these two as both adopted two different ways to determine placement. The Tibetan Black Hat gauged everything by the opening to the room rather than the true directions based on the Feng Shui compass. I would suggest it is better to select one style, be the Classic Feng Shui or the Tibetan Black Hat, choose one that works for you and then practice that one style exclusively.
You Are Desperate
Do not expect a miracle to happen overnight, Feng Shui does not work like magic. Be patient, if you have got every set up in the right way, you will notice small changes start showing up. According to the experts, results can be seen in as little as 3 months but if you had integrated your Bazi into your Feng Shui analysis, the result could be faster and longer-lasting. Remember, that small improvement you have experienced will eventually accumulate and build up into bigger improvements in your life.
