Facing Cross Junction Road
up a small cafe in the business district, I was
to check on the feng shui for 2 shop space for Miss
A and advise her which would be the better one for
A - Higher rental, located beside a busy commercial
building seeing the flow of large crowd in the
peak morning, lunch and evening period. Front
of shop faces nice greenery view.
B - Lower rental, located further away from
the above commercial building with lesser crowd.
Front of shop faces a busy cross junction road.
Assessed both shops and evaluated their space layout
(i.e. where the kitchen, dining area, cashier counter
shall be), I told Miss A, "Shop B the one facing
the busy cross junction road would be the one with
better feng shui". She was very much taken aback,
"Wouldn't Shop A be the better option? The higher
rental isn't an issue to me, you know. And pardon
me, isn't facing cross junction road bad Feng Shui?".
She commented that she knew of many who didn't rent
the shop because of it facing the cross junction.
"Make good the chance and try bargain down the rental
then", I joked and I reassured her that the cross
junction road would actually help bring in wealth
more than to harm. I could see much doubts from
Miss A but being a strong feng shui believer, she
decided to heed my advice. An auspicious date was
selected for her new cafe business opening.
Business went well the first day and business started
to bloom. She was still doubtful with the quieter
crowd with her cafe further away from the main traffic
but the impressive customer crowd delighted her.
Shop that faces cross junction road is believed
by many as bad Feng Shui. Myth has it that heavy
traffic from roads brings about great negative Qi.
Yes road traffic generates energy, the heavier the
traffic the stronger the Qi generated. But if you
understand how qi flows, road traffic flow from
various Cross junction, T junction, Y junction etc
could subjectively help gather positive Qi instead,
acting like a strong magnet that attracts wealth
(the more the traffic, the ideal the case). Open
up your eyes, you be surprised that you find shops
and restaurants that face such junctions doing extremely
well in their business.
