I know that some people may think that this is a little extreme, but the truth is there is such a thing as Feng Shui of sleep. When we sleep that’s when we rejuvenate, that’s when our body gathers more energy. Also, sleep is maybe one of the longest, if not the longest time of day when we face a single direction, and as discussed in my previous posts, depending on your Kua Number, different directions may create either good or bad luck for you.
Also in Feng Shui, between 11pm and 1am, which is the hour of the rat, the first animal zodiac, is the time when our body rejuvenates better. So it is best that we go to sleep before 11pm. More than that, the morning chi, especially between 5am to 9am is considered, as the ‘freshest’ chi. It’s important that we absorb the chi of these hours so that we ‘energize’ our own chi.
Maybe that is why it is not surprising that most successful people are early riser.
Today, allow me to share with you the 4 different types of good luck base on your Kua number. The four different good lucks are SHENG CHI (Success), TIEN YI (HEALTH), NIEN YEN (Relationship/Love) and FU WEI (Personal Development/Growth).
It’s advisable to always bring a compass with you if you really want to ensure that you always activate your lucky directions.
SHENG CHI, which I have indicated as the ‘Success’ direction, is actually loosely translated as ‘generating chi’ or ‘generating energy’. Most Feng Shui experts and Chinese believes that this is the best amongst all the four different luck, because this largely governs your personal success, especially in business, or if it is wealth growth and prosperity that you’re looking for. This direction also governs your ‘political’ potential. By political I don’t mean it to be the real sense of politics but more of how you handle situation in your professional life. This is also the direction that governs your recognition luck.
TIEN YI is loosely translated as ‘heaven’s doctor’. This largely governs one’s health. If you are experiencing health problems or is afflicted with the illness star it’s best to have your head face the direction of your Tien Yi when sleeping, just make sure that the illness star is not in that direction on that particular year. However, Tien Yi is not only about health, it also provides medium range wealth and career luck. So some people consider this as the second best luck.
NIEN YEN’s loose translation is ‘descendant and longevity’, but as you can see the English translation that I indicated is RELATIONSHIP/LOVE, because this directions basically deals with primarily family relationship luck and descendant’s luck. This is also the luck that governs your all your relationship that includes love life. This is also a secondary health direction, so if you’re sick and is unable to face your Tien Yi direction, this is the second option.
FU WEI’s loose translation is ‘basic self’. This is the direction that largely governs your personal growth but is not related to career and/or financial growth. This direction is largely associated with people who need to seek enlightenment or needs to know what they want to do in life. This is also a direction that is largely beneficial to those who need to seek spirituality and clarity. If you’re going through a lot of personal problem, this is the direction to activate.
It’s quite easy for us to misinterpret that Sheng Chi is the best luck; in fact, this is the case with most Chinese and some Feng Shui experts. However, I don’t think this is the case, each of the lucky and it’s corresponding directions base in your Kua number serves it’s own purpose. For example, you may be enjoying career success and financial luck but is going through a tough personal fulfillment phase; you can activate your Fu Wei and need not concentrate too much on your Sheng Chi. You also may be a successful businessman, but your health of family life is bad, then you can activate your Tien Yi and Nien Yen respectively. It’s really finding the right balance and looking for what’s missing in your life or what would be your priority.
How do you activate these directions, it’s quite simple, you just face that direction when working and eating. When sleeping your head should be towards the direction you want to activate.
