Your Four Personal BEST Directions and Areas in a Room or House

The Meaning of Your 8 Lifetime Directions

Based on the time of your birth, your Kua Number (also called your Gau number or the Pau Kau number) reveals the four best energy areas in your environment that support your continued growth in success and happiness.

The Kua number also warns you of the four energies in your space that sap your strength and cause problems. It’s best to stay out of these four most disturbing energy areas, which can increase your stress and keep you feeling down. These best and worst energy areas are specific to your birth date and stay with you for life.

As you are learning how to use your personal feng shui energies (by simply spending more time in the four good ones and avoiding the four stressful ones), consider putting a sticky note on your walls to show where all eight directions are.

For more attractive feng shui, order the feng shui posters (a sample is shown below) which are already labeled with your compass direction and your purpose for that area and the physical element needed in that area. These posters are very helpful when you hang them in spaces where you spend a lot of time (like an office, classroom, or conference room).

Once you have them up, you are able to choose one of your four best seats in the room, with just a quick glance at the walls. These posters will keep you in your best directions and help you avoid the four dangerous ones.

Your goal is to always sit and sleep in your best areas because you are then tapping into supportive energy which gives you great benefits, such as an edge in your creativity, more influence over other people and a boost to your health.

Note: It’s most important to FIRST create a strong feng shui organized home, bedroom or work environment (clutter-reduced and color-coded with appropriate objects) BEFORE you use the secrets revealed here. So, check that each of your nine bagua areas is color coded and has at least one appropriate element object


Your #1 Best Direction (which the Chinese call: Sheng Chi; or English translation: Life Chi Energy) is the North.

If you spend lots of time in the North it will bring you: personal wealth, great prosperity, success and respectability.

Your "Sheng Chi" is known as the Wealth and Success Area and Direction. This is the strongest, most supportive energy direction and location to spend time in. Try to enter your home through a door that is located in this area of your home.

Although you could certainly sleep with the top of your head pointing in this direction, it may be too much good energy and not calm enough to offer the most peaceful sleep. Use your health direction (below) instead.

You should face this direction when you are doing business with clients, customers or patients. Teachers and presenters should face this direction when lecturing, as well as, when conferencing with parents, students or clients.

When you work alone and need to concentrate, it’s very good to have your BACK toward this direction, because it props you up like a strong, comfy chair.

How To Decorate Your Wealth & Success Area and Direction: NorthThis fortunate area for you is in the north, which is energized by the color black and dark blue, as well as, wavy and curved glass objects. You can build up the good energy here by decorating with dark blue and black glass things representing your career and wealth. A single glass object is best, as the power number of the north is one.

Since the metal element supports the creation of water, you can also use metal colors (white, silver, gold) and metal prosperity objects made of shiny silver, gold, brass or copper objects such as plates and bowls or arch-shaped, curvy and shiny objects.

The earth element dries out water and destroys this good energy, so please keep the color beige, soft tan and pale yellow out of any permanent decorations in this area and avoid adding earth objects made of clay, porcelain, stone or crystals to this water area.

The colors black and deep blue are strong north energizers. The poster below shows a blue glass (as used in a toast to success) in front of an ocean or bay (water element). Placing this image in the north will strengthen your personal success energy. Then remember to spend lots of time near this poster.

Your Health Area and Direction: South

Activating this sector will cure illness and sickness. The source of Tien Yi energy brings good health and curing to those who are suffering from illnesses. It will be especially effective if located in the bedroom or dining room. For your oven, where the source of this energy comes from, pointing the oven door to the south direction will enhance the curing effect.

This direction benefits from the addition of plants, candles, red, green, and brown colors. Sleep in this sector to create good luck in health and for more help from others. Activate this area with beautiful flowers and bright lights. A front door located here will also bring lasting prosperity to your family.

Your Love Area and Direction: East

Activating this sector will create harmonious family relationships. If there are quarrels or bickering, it is best to activate this location.

The east direction helps with all aspects related to love and all relationships. If you have difficult relationships, try to sleep with your head pointed in this direction. If romance is a problem, add romantic symbols such as the double happiness or pairs of duck figures. Add plants to boost family relationships. Water features are particularly good for relationship luck. Green, brown, purple, black, and blue colors are especially beneficial in the east sector.

Your Growth Area and Direction: Southeast

Fui Wei energy is represented as stability, clear thinking and good life. It is best for children for studying and it also helps create kindness, respect and obedience.

In personal feng shui, the Southeast is your growth and wisdom direction. Work in this location to improve your standing, study in this direction, and locate beneficial activities here, such as dining to improve all areas of life. Add small plants in this sector for excellent chi. Are you trying to start over after a major setback of some kind? If so, this is direction to face or be in, as it will help you get back on your feet again.

How to Tap Into Your Best Kua Number Eight Energy Areas and Directions

* Try to sleep, eat, work, or be in these areas of your home

* Do as many activities as possible in these areas

* Face these directions when working, eating, or sitting in your living room

* Sleep with the top of your head pointed in one of these directions

* Enter your home or office from a door that faces one of these directions

Your Unfortunate Areas and Directions: Northwest, West, Southwest, Northeast

Try to avoid the northwest sector and/or direction. To not do so can cause arguments and legal problems. A pair of fu dogs can help remedy this if you must stay in this sector.

The west and southwest can cause accidents, misfortune, and difficulties, such as lawsuits, burglary or fire. Avoid the northeast because it is the VERY worst direction for you. A front door facing this direction can lead to a loss of children or other close family members. Infertility can also arise, causing the family name to die out. Wealth will also be lost.

These directions are the best locations for kitchens or bathrooms as their negative effects are suppressed by the energy of the toilet and kitchen.

Strenuously avoid the northeast because it is the VERY worst direction for you. A front door facing this direction can lead to a loss of children or other close family members. Infertility can also arise, causing the family name to die out. Wealth will also be lost. This is a good location for a kitchen or a toilet.

Your Kua #4 Dress for Success Tip

As you are a Water element, you may be best wearing your success direction palette of Water colors, including darker shades of blue and the color black. You like clothing pieces that are unique and those that have an unusual cut.  Women feel good wearing loose, flowing and long outfits that mimic the movement of waves.  This Kua number also has many purses, satchels or other bags to carry things around in. Water people should choose outfits that draw attention to their neck with beautiful necklaces. You can then also captivate everyone with what you have to say.

Since Metal supports Water, you may also benefit from wearing Metal colors including white, gray, silver and shiny gold, either as an accent or as the main color near your face. Wearing colors from these two families will also make you more appealing to others.

Following these special Kua number guidelines for dressing can make you feel more confident and help you be more successful out in the business world.
