In the urban society of today, we are seeing more and
more high-rise buildings. Most people stay in tall apartment
building especially for city like Singapore.
in the olden days, Feng Shui is applied mainly to houses
and not high-rise buildings. To refer to the older classic
texts, you won't be able to find one that exactly teaches
you how to apply Feng Shui for high-rise building (with
is very straightforward when dealing with a simple stand-alone
house. Just one look, you know where the Facing Direction
is. But when it comes to complicated high-rise building
that is with many different units, it may not be as
Facing Direction, not the same old topic again?! (Some
of you must be just thinking now). But it is not for
no reasons that we keep bringing this out. Getting
the Facing Direction correct is the very the first and
the most important step. Without knowing where the Facing
Direction is, how can one even conduct a Feng Shui audit?
And worse, what if the Facing Direction is wrongly determined,
reading the good as the bad and the bad as the good?!
I met up with an online student of mine (who is an renown
master in his own country) here in Singapore. Part of
our discussion, we talk about taking of Facing Direction
between house and high-rise building. It is always fun
to exchange ideas and pointers, isn't it?
openly, he commented that buildings in Singapore is
far more complicated that what he thought, some doesn't
even seem to have a proper facing typically the newer
ones. He was joking, why couldn't the architect just
label properly where the Facing Direction is. He brought
up also the suggestion that in such a congested built-up,
there are bound to be several Poison Arrows (sharp edges)
that would be bad for the occupants.
with him, I suggested to him that he has gotten too
used-to to the convenient environment of his. Singapore
is a small country and with the population growing,
there is the need to develop buildings upward. But despite
so, there are still many successful rich ones who are
staying in the high-rise apartment, isn't it? Tall buildings
similarly are able to enjoy good Feng Shui too. Where
there are living space, Feng Shui can be similarly applied
next shared with him the methods on how he can easily
recognize and determine correctly the Facing Direction.
He was amazed by the "new" theory I shared with him,
but acknowledged it enthusiastically. I demonstrate
the theory to him with examples of some past projects.
There are no special secret methods to Feng Shui, I
told him and there is definitely more experienced master
who can explain and coach better than me. The key to
note is to stay open and flexible, understand the basic,
understand the way how qi flows around us and how it
enters the house... It was nice meeting up with my overseas
student, exchanging interesting ideas.
