Feng Shui Discussion:
Taking Facing Direction of high-rise buildings

    In the urban society of today, we are seeing more and more high-rise buildings. Typically for city like Singapore, most people are staying in tall apartment buildings.

    Traditionally in the olden days, Feng Shui was applied mainly to houses and not high-rise buildings. To refer to the olden classic texts, you wouldn't be able to find one that teaches you how to apply Feng Shui for high-rise building. It is straightforward when dealing with simple stand-alone houses, just one look and you knew where the Facing Direction is. But when it comes to high-rise buildings that comprise many different units within, straightforward would not be the case.

    Ah Facing Direction, not the same old topic again?! (some of you must be thinking). But it is not for no reasons that we keep bringing this up. Not knowing where the Facing Direction is, how can one even start off a Feng Shui audit? Worse if the Facing Direction is wrongly determined, imagine you read the bad as the good and good as the bad? Getting the Facing Direction right is the very the first important step.

    Recently, I met up with an online student of mine here at Singapore (an renowned master in his country). Part of our discussion, we talk about taking Facing Direction between houses and high-rise buildings. It was fun exchanging ideas and pointers. Very openly, he commented that buildings in Singapore are pretty complicated in their designs and structures i.e. some don't even seem to have a proper Facing (typically the newer ones). He was joking that couldn't the architect just label down where the Facing Direction is. He also brought up that in such a congested built-up, there are bound to be several Poison Arrows around (sharp edges) that would be bad for the occupants.

    Sharing with him, I said yeap Singapore is a small country with the population growing, there is the need to develop buildings upward. But then again, there are still many successful rich ones who stay in the high-rise apartments. Where there are living space, Feng Shui can be applied regardless of low houses or tall buildings.

    I next shared with him the methods how he can easily recognize and identify the Facing Direction. He was excited with the "new" theory I shared with him, I demonstrated the theory to him with examples of some past projects which he acknowledged enthusiastically. There are no special secrets I told him and there are definitely more experienced masters who can explain and coach better than me. The key is to stay open, work with the basic and comprehend the rationale how qi flows around us and how they would enter the house. It was nice meeting up with my overseas student, exchanging interesting ideas.
