The Feng Shui Direction of Your Home
In classical Feng Shui, experienced practitioners use the directions of the magnetic compass in their analysis of houses and buildings.
This means that your house can face north, northeast, south, etc. Compass directions are one of many techniques feng shui practitioners use to assess how qi flows and how it affects the inhabitants of space.
What Is a Facing Direction?
When feng shui was developed in ancient times, it was extremely important to observe the environment by locating where it would settle on earth. For example, the words yin and yang originally defined the sunny side (yang) or the shady side (yin) of the hill.
It would make a big difference if you placed your home where it could receive energy (sunlight) more quickly and easily and had feng shui by your side to support it.
The direction of travel is the direction of the magnetic compass facing the house. Sometimes this is based on the location of the front door, other times it may be based on the flow of qi, such as a panoramic view or the street.
Therefore, it really depends on each plan and situation of the house, in which an expert is needed to determine it for you. For the curious newcomers to feng shui, we suggest keeping it simple and using the front door. (Note that not all feng shui schools use the compass or the opposite direction.)
A feng shui practitioner uses the direction of your home to assess how qi (life energy) flows into your property. Provides information on how qi is received within the building.
The luo pan, the feng shui compass, can be used to adjust the analysis so that the practitioner can understand the behavior of qi in their home. The feng shui practitioner can use the home address along with her birth information and other ideas to gather more information and be able to align her client's qi with space.
According to classical Feng Shui expert Jillian Rothchild-Scholar of Feng Shui In Motion, a trained practitioner can help you determine the direction of your home in a number of ways. First, the luo pan is an accurate magnetic compass that practitioners are trained to use to read detailed information about the feng shui of their home.
Second, there are many factors that influence which address to use as your home address. In general, use the front door of the house to determine the direction of entry. However, there are other factors to consider, such as if there is an interior garage door that is used more frequently or if there is a busy main road to consider.
Sometimes the house is oriented towards a focal point, such as a spectacular panoramic view that may be in the opposite direction. And according to Jillian, when it comes to apartments, the unit door is used most of the time.
When working with a classical feng shui practitioner, he or she will have the experience of evaluating which direction to use and may also look in more than one direction towards the house.
How do you find the feng shui facing the direction of your home?
First, you need a compass. You can use a fancy feng shui luo pan, but the smartphone compass works too. So you stand at the front door of your house, looking out. Face direction is the direction you (and your home) face outward. The compass hand will indicate the direction and degrees of the face.
The direction of a house should not be confused with the direction of sitting, which is the opposite. For example, if the opposite direction is north, the seated direction is south.
We also recommend that you read a bit, come home once, and then another step. Take at least three readings. You might be surprised, but you will likely get all compass readings slightly different.
Take the average and work with it. Do the best you can, and if you want to learn more, we recommend that you work with a classical feng shui expert to get the exact reading and give you your analysis.
