I am frequently asked by people, usually parents, on Feng Shui for education luck. On the other hand, there are other people who reject this idea, because they think that education counts on the efforts individuals made. The more diligent you are the better results you get in the examination. These people think that we shouldn’t rely on Feng Shui to achieve education / examination goals, and it simply doesn’t work. Which side is true?
Feng Shui examines the relationship among time, place and people. People is the factor that we can control. If you work harder, there is a higher chance you get a better examination result. But the two former factors are not 100% under our control. This is where Feng Shui comes in for education. But applying Feng Shui for education, we are not solely relying on the “magical power” of Feng Shui. The student still needs to put efforts in studying, we simply put efforts in the other two factors as well.
Feng Shui for Education Luck – Exterior
In ancient times, Chinese study for only one reason, they all want to win in the government examination and become a government official. It was the best way to get rich and powerful. So when people wanted to enhance the education luck, the methods they use would be linked to this goal.
For example, since all government officials at that time wore a hat in a particular shape, which they called it Wu Sha (烏紗), it was suggested that having a mountain / hill near you house which has a Wu Sha shape is good for education. Below is a photo of a real Wu Sha found in the grave of a government official of the Ming Dynasty. If there is a mountain / hill that looks similar to it (i.e. high in the middle and lower on both sides, all three has a round top), the region near the mountain / hill has good Feng Shui for education luck.
Another external form factor Feng Shui element that we look for is a tall hill with a relatively narrow base. In Feng Shui, there is a tool called Wen Chang Tower, 文曲塔 in Chinese, which could boost the education luck. If there is naturally a tower-like hill near your home, it is also an area with good Feng Shui for education. In modern society, a tall and slender building could also be regarded as a Wen Chang Tower.
Thirdly, if there is any education-related buildings, such as a school or library, that is located near your house, it is also a sign of good Feng Shui for education.
No matter Wu Sha, Wen Chang Tower or school/library, the direction where it locates also matter. We will see where are the good directions later in this article.
Feng Shui for Education Luck – Interior
The external environment is not 100% controlled by us. So Feng Shui masters usually implement internal strategies for Feng Shui for education. One very commonly used tool is lucky bamboo. Just find out the good direction for education and place a vest with four pieces of lucky bamboo, the simplest Feng Shui method for education luck is done. Why so?
In Feng Shui, the quantity “4” is related to Flying Star 4 that governs study, job promotion and fame. The green color is good for promoting the power of Flying Star 4, so as the “wooden” nature of the lucky bamboo. In short, we are actually using the luck bamboo to boost the power of the Flying Star 4. This is just a brief explanation of the reason behind. If you are a student of my online Feng Shui Master Class, you would know more about how this mechanism and many other Feng Shui techniques work.
So the critical question is where the lucky direction is. It is the location where the Flying Star 4 situates. In theory, the Feng Shui direction for education luck varies from one house to another (again, you can learn it in my online Feng Shui Master Class). So here is a simpler trick you can use. It is to find out the location of the yearly Flying Star 4!
There is a set of Flying Stars that changes the disposition every year. In year 2013, this star locates in Southeast. So, if you want to enhance the education / examination luck, place a vest with four lucky bamboo in Southeast. Please note that it is the Southeast corner measured from the center of the flat / house.
Similarly, if the Wu Sha / Wen Chang Tower / library or school is located in the Southeast direction outside your house, it is a sign of good Feng Shui for education in 2013.
