Numerology takes on interesting meanings in various parts of the world. In the western world most people consider numerology a product of astrology that will provide tips, hints and insight regarding someone’s personality or behavior. However, people of Asian descent or ancestry view numerology differently. Feng Shui comes into play, and things begin to get very interesting.
Understanding Feng Shui
Feng Shui is an understanding and balance of your environment in order to enhance your chi energy (chi represents all living things). The literal translate of Feng Shui is wind and water, and this art has been practiced for thousands of years.
Sometimes people will move things around a room or space in order for an area to feel more neutral. Feng Shui numerology in Chinese cultures is an important part of selecting phone numbers, addresses, anniversaries and other important numbers.
People who are building homes will often hire a Feng Shui practitioner to help them locate harmonious areas for building. This practitioner evaluates the land and the condition of its chi energy. Once a person decides to build on the land, the principles of Feng Shui are implemented in order not to interrupt the flow of positive energy.
Understanding Feng Shui Numerology
As mentioned above, people of Asian ancestry take Feng Shui numerology very seriously. Certain numbers are considered lucky or unlucky based on the way they sound while being pronounced. For instance, if we were to say “four” aloud in the English language, it would sound or rhyme with the word “more”. Thus, this number would be considered lucky.
Superstition and numerology are deciding factors regarding where to live or work if you’re of Asian descent. People will refuse to purchase a home that is perfect for them because there is a four or 13 in the street address.
The number four is the worst. When the Cantonese speak the word, which translates as “sei”, it sounds like death. All numbers that can be simplified down to four have a poor representation as well. The numbers 13 and four are considered the worst.
The number eight is considered a very lucky number. Saying the word, which translates as “patt” in Cantonese, sounds a lot like the word “faat”, which stands for prosperity and abundance.
Is There A Solution?
Fortunately, there is a remedy for people who have fallen victim to the ugly and unlucky four or 13. In order to correct the Feng Shui of your home or office, you can circle the number. As simple as it sounds, a circle is meant to enclose the negative effects of these ill-omened numbers.
Thus, a simple solution to fix your numerology Feng Shui is either drawing a circle around the whole number, or you can go to your local home improvement store and purchase a door number that is enclosed in a circle.
If you are a person who believes in the superstitious powers of numerology Feng Shui, and you’ve found the perfect home aside from your street numbers, the above cure should make you feel safe and confident upon moving into your new home.
