Feng Shui 2016 – Sickness Directions
Firstly, let’s talk about the directions that may bring you sickness. Every year, Feng Shui practitioners search for the Flying Star 5 on the Yearly Star Map. Flying Star 5 is an extremely bad star which is associated with illness, disaster and troubles. In 2016 Year of Monkey, this flying star occupies the Northeast corner.
For this flying star, the advice is simple. DO NOT carry out any building works in this direction inside your house. Building works include not only new construction, but alterations and repairs too. For example, you certainly should not form new openings on the walls or replace the floor tiles in this direction. Basically, anything that touches on the building structure should be avoided.
Besides, you should try not to place red, purple or orange stuff here. Of course, a very small red cup in the Northeast corner in your house would not harm, but please never place any such big things here. Try also keep this direction stable, do not put any dynamic things like water fountain here. These are all things that would trigger the negative energy of the Flying Star 5.
Next, the Flying Star 2 which also brings sickness. This star occupies the center of your house in 2016 Year of Monkey. So, you should have the same precautionary measures as Flying Star 5 in the center. Do not carry out building works or place any dynamic or red stuff in the center of your house.
Feng Shui 2016 – Building Works
There are a few more directions where you should avoid carrying out building works in the coming year. They are Southwest, Northeast, South and Northwest. These are the Tai Shui (the Yearly God), Shui Puo (the Yearly Sha – negative energy), San Sha (three killings) and Li Shi directions of the year. They are notorious for bringing bad luck in you touch them in a bad way.
The above devices may seem a bit crazy because if you want to follow them through, there is basically no possibility for you to repair your house. So many directions are untouchable!
Yes, this is the unfortunate truth. But it does not mean that you cannot repair the roof of your house even if it is serious leaking water. What you need to do is to begin your repair works in the good directions first, and gradually extend your works to the bad directions. The fundamental idea is to attract good luck from good directions first before you fight against the monsters.
The good news is, we now know what not to do to keep your risk exposure low. We shall find out the good directions in the next post in this Feng Shui 2016 series. Stay tuned!
