Many people are familiar with some Feng Shui concepts, especially when it comes to furniture placement. Much of this stems from theories about how energy or air currents move through a space based on the architectural and design lay-out. |
In fact, in the early 1990’s Feng shui was often called “the art of placement.” Where things are placed can change the energy in a room and that can have a predictable impact on a person’s health, career, and relationships. In classical Feng Shui, the predictions can be very specific. For example, not only can we tell if a person is unhappy in their primary relationship, but we might even be able to tell if the cause is infidelity.
When location is combined with timing, we get a unique matrix of energy patterns for each floor plan. Those familiar with astrology know that an astrologer can give their client a list of the best days and times to initiate an important activity that could have long lasting results. This is also the case with Feng Shui. We arrive at these conclusions when we combine information about the house or business, along with the occupant or owner’s birth data.
Whether it is the best date to launch a magazine, have a grand opening for a business, stick a shovel in the ground to start a demolition, sign a contract, put a house up for sale, try to get pregnant, have a surgery or any number of momentous commitments, classical Feng Shui can determine the best and worst times to do certain things.
Aspects of timing include: • Long term energies based on when the structure was built • Changed energies based on when the structure was remodeled • 20-year phases that all structures pass through at some point in time • Annual cycles that all structures pass through • Monthly cycles and even daily cycles
An example of permanent energy based on construction year: A house built in 1970 that faces south could cause the occupants kidney, blood or circulation problems. A house built in 1950 that faces north could cause the occupants heart or eye problems.
An example of changed energy due to remodel would be the case of a one-story house that has its ceiling and roof opened to the sky while a second-story addition is done.
An example of a 20-year phase that all structures go through is the “Locked Phase” which can make an otherwise good house seriously undermined. For instance, all houses built between 1984-2003 that face northwest are currently in a 20 year “Money Lock” which can make the financial success for the occupants more challenging. There are other house types built in different eras and different orientations which are also under the spell of the “Locked” phase.
Every year I am very busy in the last few months of the year providing clients with Annual Updates because the energy shifts in a house from year to year. The latent or dormant energies are often triggered by annual cycles. For example, a house might always be prone to break-in and in certain years that vulnerability gets heightened.
Monthly cycles come and go quickly, but strategic planning can include the best month to start a remodel, try to get pregnant with a boy or girl, try to ignite a new romantic relationship, win a competition or get a job, just to name a few of the more popular requests I get from clients.
In our culture we have many clichés or sayings that are basically Feng Shui concepts that acknowledge timing. Some of my favorites include: “Right place right time,” “wrong place wrong time,” “an accident waiting to happen,” and “timing is everything.”
Kartar Diamond consults with hundreds of new clients per year, but also attends to her existing clients with Annual Updates. Some clients even need monthly advice for the optimal timing of when to do important things.
