Go to google, type in ‘feng shui principles’ and I bet you get thousands of sites.
In cities with big Chinese populations, there are feng shui consultants.
If you’re building in an area where Chinese may be future purchasers or tenants, it’s definitely worth being aware of the major pitfalls.
I remember years ago working near Sydney’s Chinatown. The local Advance Bank did a refurb – they completely gutted the branch. This branch ran across a block so there were two street entrances i.e. you could walk in one door and out another. Now, the problem was that when they opened the reconfigured branch, it was possible to see right through the branch from one street to another. This is apparently very bad feng shui – it has very bad connotations for wealth. So all the local Chinese refused to use the branch and started to close accounts. So the fitout had to be ripped out and the branch reconfigured again.

Also check out your local bookstore. There should be a fair bit of info in there.learnshareMember@learnshareJoin Date: 2003Post Count: 105
If your are really interested and have a thick pocket, go to your nearby chinatown, ask for a FungSui master.

Speaking from my personal experience, I was encountering problems obtaining visa in Chinaand the school that I was enrolled was very uncooperative to give me a letter to give me a letter for a re-entry visa. My friend who had a little knowledge of Feng Shui, told me to change the direction my bed was facing, and you know the next thing, the attitude of the person at school changed and I was able to get the letter that would allow me back into the country.
I don’t know whether it’s feng shui or just my luck, but something that I have been trying for weeks just solved after the night I changed my furniture around in my room.mjonesMember@mjonesJoin Date: 2006Post Count: 1
Yes Feng Shui has its good points and not so good.
I have studied with two Masters and use it in our home….and family’s homes…… and friends homes!!!!! Everyone who comes to our home says that they feel very comfortable and welcomed.
There are a number of styles out there. Search websites and you’ll find a lot of the do’s and don’ts are very similar…there is a lot of junk out there so use what feels good for you. YOu’ll start weeding out what is absolutely rediculous and what isn’t….you just get a feel for it.
Don’t get too worried about what should or shouldn’t be where. Generally if it feels good it probably is. Enjoy the ride[smiling]shake-the-diseaseMember@shake-the-diseaseJoin Date: 2005Post Count: 97
Fung Shui is very real …. well OK ….. it’s about as real as the Bermuda Triangle, Lochness Monster and the Yeti. OK OK you got me, it has absolutely ZERO truth behind it. There Ive said it.
However, many people are superstitious so for this reason , and only if your target market is Chinese people, you should consider Funh Shui principles.

Hey it s true-the tooth fairy told me so there!! [tongue]depreciatorMember@depreciatorJoin Date: 2003Post Count: 541
I’m prepared to cut the Chinese some slack. People laughed at acupuncture for many years.
There would be an element of superstition in feng shui, but I also think that peoples’ surroundings can change their moods and perceptions, and this in turn can impact upon their life. I work with a bizzarely positive person. Good things and good people constantly come her way.Harley2Member@harley2Join Date: 2005Post Count: 32
For me, if you give me your money, I’ll give you feng shui.
If people want it there is a market there!

Try reading Cathy Jayne Pearce’s book “Real Estate CAsh from Treasure and Trash” its a good read and has a chapter in the back dedicated to Feng Shui.
“It is better to be inconspicuously wealthy, than to be ostentatiously poor…”
