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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
