Do Yourself A Favour
Before you pay for an engineering survey for a house or piece of land you are thinking of buying, do yourself a favour and invest the money in checking out its Feng Shui!
This might sound like radical advice and some may even think it is ridiculous, but from personal experience it is not. I was recently talking to Master ZenWise and mentioned how from the time my family moved house many years ago that life seemed to get much more difficult. I am not saying that everything went wrong, but a lot did. My parents broke up, my sibling began having challenges on all fronts, and I felt like I was living through one crisis after another. The house itself was like a black hole for money. As soon as one problem was fixed another appeared. But maybe the most soul destroying was that the house seemed to suck every ounce of motivation out of you. I had tried to figure out the Feng Shui many years ago myself using some of the most popular books on the market, but saw very quickly that these books were clearly lacking the level of detail that you would need to make a substantial difference, so I gave up.
Master ZenWise asked me what direction the house faced. It is almost due north. Immediately he said this was not good. We lived too far North in the northern hemisphere, to have a door facing North. This would pose a challenge to the head of the household. He asked what direction the neighbors’ houses faced. Along large stretch of the road, the houses face the same direction. He then asked if the neighbors had any problems – especially the head of the household, traditionally the man. I had never thought about it before, but when I reflected, over a number of years a significant number had ill health and/or had died young. In addition to the direction, a river flows nearby; these houses are situated on the outside of a bend in the river, so the water is symbolically eroding the land on which they are built – a reason why our house was a black hole for money.
Without going into any specifics about timing or the personal Feng Shui, he could give me the above information. Even this amount of information would now make me run in the other direction from buying in such a location. Our case is a clear example, others are more complex and require looking at the location and the individuals involved in more detail.
Had we known about Feng Shui before buying this house, we could have saved ourselves a lot of money and suffering. I would advise anyone before investing in property – especially your residence, take expert advice. Yes get an engineers survey, have an electrician check the wiring, have a lawyer check the deeds, i.e. have an expert do what you don’t know how to. But first and foremost check the Feng Shui. All of the technical details may look perfect, but if the Feng Shui is not good for you it may count for nothing.
