It is believed that with the proper orientation of one’s house or business premises, one is able to harmonize with nature and relate to the physical surrounding favorably to attract desirable cosmological influences. That is what I learned as a licensed real estate broker in the nineties. As part of the tools of trade, I underwent a basic orientation of [tag]Feng-Shui[/tag] under a Japanese Geomancer. A few Filipinos believe in the art of [tag]geomancy[/tag] and it helps if I had a little knowledge on the matter. I’ve forgotten all about Feng-shui since I stopped my real estate career (I will talk about this in another entry). Besides, I’m not Chinese and feng-shui shouldn’t rule my life or dictate my dream home.
When we were house-hunting, I prayed that God would lead our family to the home we desired. For every failed attempt, I believed that the property was not meant to be. I didn’t want to be ruled by Feng-Shui. What truly amazed me with the property is that the owner followed the Feng-shui layout principles. The most surprising fact of all was that the house direction is West which is my ideal or favorable orientation.
Let me explain by this “Cohesive” diagram . I am a “Cock” based on the Chinese Calendar, being born 1957. Looking at the diagram, my favorable orientation is West followed by NNE or SSE (Follow the corners of the triangle to find the orientation).
I told my husband that the added bonus seems to be that based on Feng-Shui principles, our new home will bring us harmony. I now recall that our first home also had the “West” Orientation. We were happy in our old home. Coincidence?
So what is an unfavorable direction for me?
