Feng Shui

Do you know what is “Feng Shui”? Do you believe in it?

I just bought a book taking about “Eat your way to Fortune” from the book fair last week. The author of the book is named Mr Li Kui Ming, a renowned Feng Shui Master in Hong Kong.

This book is taking about how to change your fortune by eating what kind of food , wearing what colors and what to do to change the fortune according to your date of birth.

There are five elements in Feng Shui, let’s me explain first. Five elements are Metal, Wood, Water, Fire, Earth . And they are complimentary and intertwined.

He classified four types of fate according to the birth date, you can refer as below:

Four Types of Fate:

Type 1:

Date of Birth from 19 February to 4 May : Lack of Metal

Type 2:

Date of Birth from 5 May to 7 July : Lack of Water

Type 3:

Date of Birth from 8 July to 7 November : Lack of Wood

Type 4:

Date of Birth from 8 November to 18 February : Lack of Fire

In general, Feng Shui for fortune telling request “8 words” meaning the time of your birth in year, month, day and time to calculate your fortune. However, master Li has classified into 4 types of fate for our easy reference, because :

Type 1 is born in Spring. Spring is full of WOOD,  METAL is required to overcome the interaction. Thus, people need more METAL in the daily life for a good fortune.

Type 2 is born in Summer. Summer is hot and symbol FIRE is on. Thus, people need more WATER in the daily life for a good fortune.

Type 3 is born in Autumn. Autumn is in the Feng Shui we called “Month of Metal” so people born in Autumn without WOOD in the “8 words”, thus WOOD intake in the daily life for a good fortune.

Type 4 is born in Winter. Winter is cold and lack of FIRE element. Thus people should get more FIRE elements for a good fortune.

During reading the book, I implement my eating habits and waiting any positive impacts to me.

I will share more contents to people who are interested in Feng Shui in later posts.

I am still learning it as I am a beginner to Feng Shui. Forgive me for any incorrect explanation.
