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 East.
If you spend lots of time in the North East 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 Kua Number Two Wealth and Success Area and Direction: Northeast
This fortunate area for you is in the northeast, which is energized by earth elements, such as crystals, stones, clay, porcelain, dirt, tile, and ceramics. The earth colors are pale yellow, beige and very light tan.
The number eight builds up the energy in the northeast, so a group of eight rocks or crystals is supportive. Any earthen objects that represent education or wisdom, and things that are short and square (like square clay pots) will enhance the power in this space.
Earth is created from fire, so splashes of red and eight candles or lights will be effective here. Earth is weakened by wood, so avoid wood objects and don’t have any permanent green décor here.
The color turquoise matches the wisdom and education color of the northeast and so it is a strong northeast energizer. The poster below shows a turquoise-colored stone sculpture of an owl (wisdom) on top of a stone pillar. Placing this image in the northeast will strengthen your personal feng shui direction for wealth and success. Place it in a red frame or add a red lamp near this image to add the strength of the fire element. Then remember to spend lots of time near this poster.
Your Health Area and Direction: West
Your 2nd best direction is West and it brings good health and safety. Activating this sector will cure illness and sickness. The source of this Tien Yi energy brings good health and cures to those who are suffering from illnesses. It is good if the bedroom or dining hall is located in the west. When your oven door points to this direction it enhances the curing effect of this energy.
A front door located here will also bring honor from someone of prominence. Enhance this location with metal objects or stone objects to give health a boost. Eat or work in this location when getting over an illness. Use objects in groups of seven, such as seven crystal balls. Decorate in colors of white, gray, or silver.
Your Love Area and Direction: Northwest
Your 3rd best direction is Northwest and it is for good relationships. Activating this sector will create harmonious family relationships. Where there are quarrels or bickering, it will be best to activate this location with feng shui cures resulting in a more harmonious relationship.
The northwest is the "heaven" location and benefits from having round shapes here. Stimulate romance by putting a small fan on a 6-rod hollow wind chime. Enhance this area to create good relationships with anyone. Add a stereo or radio here to enhance your love life.
Your Growth Area and Direction: Southwest
Your 4th best direction is Southwest and it is represented as stability, clear thinking and good life. It is the best area for children to study and this space creates kindness, respect and obedience.
In personal feng shui, the Southwest 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. Are you trying to start over from any kind of setback? If so, this is direction to face or be in. Enhance this area with globes, vases, or pictures of mountains or maps.
How to Tap into These Kua Number Two Best Energy Areas
• Try to sleep, eat, work, or be in these sectors of your home
• Do as many activities as possible in these sectors
• 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 Kua Number Two Unfortunate Directions and Areas: East, Southeast, South, North
Your 4th Worst direction is East and this sector brings mishaps and accidents that leads to disaster. It will create arrogance, arguments, losses and losing money.
Try to avoid the east sector and/or direction. This area can cause arguments and legal problems or some kind of accident. You will be blamed for problems, if you occupy this sector too much.
Your 3rd Worst direction is Southeast and it is called the 5 Ghosts. This direction will bring fire, accidents, backstabbing and result in many quarrels within the household. It will lead to losses, confusion, sex scandals and burglary. To suppress the ill effect, it is best to locate your toilet or kitchen in this Wu Kuei sector.
The southeast and south can cause accidents, misfortune, and difficulties, such as lawsuits, burglary or fire. If your front door faces this direction, your family may leave you. If you have a business with a front door facing this direction, employees may leave. This is a good location for a kitchen or toilet.
Your 2nd Worst direction is South and it causes legal problems, conflict or grievous harm to your family. Family members will constantly get ill which could lead to death. This location is best for a toilet or kitchen area which suppresses this negative energy.
Your Worst direction is North and it is called Total Loss. This direction will bring a demotion or job loss and if your main door faces here then you will lose your descendants or family members. This sector can cause misfortune, bankruptcy, broken marriages, illness or death.
Strenuously avoid the north 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 #2 Dress for Success Tip
As you are an Earth element, you may be best wearing your success direction palette of Earth colors , including beige, sand, soft tan, and cream. Since Fire builds Earth, you may also benefit from wearing Red, 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. Do you also love to wear white? That's fine, because it helps you make a statement. Wearing clothes that are too baggy and clothes that fit tightly around your middle are not a good choice for you.
Kua 2 people like belts, comfortable waistbands and untucked shirts- hospital scrubs could be one of your favorites. They also prefer to buy traditional, high quality clothing that can last for years.
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.
