Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some FAQs, but, if you have other questions, please send us a message!

Is Feng Shui a religion, a belief or a  science of the environment?
Feng Shui is not a religion. Some people still regard Feng Shui as a belief because in ancient China Feng Shui was kept secret, reserved to the elite, and passed from a master to a selected student. However, Classical Feng Shui is not based on religion nor superstition, rather, it is an art and a science to balance the energy in the environment. Feng Shui has been around for about 4,000 years and about 1,500 years in its current form.

Is Feng Shui a myth?
Classical Feng Shui is about enhancing and harmonizing the flow of energy in the environment. If Feng Shui was a myth why would some of the world’s largest companies, such as major world banks and prominent Las Vegas casinos, use Feng Shui?

Do you need a compass to practice Feng Shui?
Yes, since getting an accura†e reading of a structure’s directions is fundamental for an in-depth analysis.
The Luo Pan is the Chinese compass or Feng Shui compass, a complex and beautiful instrument used to measure directional energy. It is the quintessential and most complex tool of a classical Feng Shui practitioner. If your Feng Shui consultant doesn’t show up at your front door with a Chinese compass, you are not going to experience genuine, classical, scientific Feng Shui.

Do I have to practice a ritual for Feng Shui?
No, there is no ritual in Classical Feng Shui. It is not a religious or spiritual practice, nor magic, or a cure-it-all. There is no use of deities. However, it is important to be in harmony with the environment and you are welcome to use items that are close to your heart.

The needle of the Luo Pan is unstable in my house. Is it haunted? Is there evil in my house?
Electro-magnetic fields, electric currents and metal make the needle of the Luo Pan unstable. Your house is not haunted nor evil. The Luo Pan is only used to find the sitting and facing of a building and apply certain formulas.

Do I have to repaint my house or some rooms to promote a good Feng Shui?
No, unlike Western Feng Shui, Classical Feng Shui does not require you repaint your home or part of it. No need to repaint the walls in the North in blue or the walls in the South in red. The colors we use, in some specific cases, are red and black to respectively represent fire and water.

Is there a wealth corner in every house?
In Classical Feng Shui we take in consideration the entire property as well as the date of birth of its inhabitants, not just a sector. The front door and the facing direction of the house are determining factors in regards to wealth. However, there is no specific “wealth corner”, “romance corner” or “fame corner.”

My plants are dying, is it bad Feng Shui?
Not necessarily. Your plant may simply die because it is too hot or too humid or too cold or because there is not enough sunshine or any other reason that defer to a gardener. However, your plants may be warning you there is something toxic and it can be harmful to you too.

Is it bad Feng Shui if my house is a bit messy?
Classical Feng Shui is based on formulas that work regardless of how tidy your house is. However, it is best to have a clean house with no clutter to allow a good energy flow.
