Explaining the bad effects of roads in Feng Shui with a real case. Avoid residences with busy roads nearby!
We examined the nature of roads in Feng Shui in the last article. This time, let’s go into details of the bad effects of roads.
Pollution is Bad Feng Shui
The busier a road, the greater the noise that it brings. We all know that roads are sources of noise pollution. Roads with busy traffic are especially annoying.
Another by-product of vehicular traffic is exhaust gas. Needless to say, the exhaust is bad to health.
According to Feng Shui theories, noise and air pollution are “Sha”, i.e. bad Feng Shui. The presence of noise and bad air could cause bad Feng Shui that affects health. If the source of pollution is located in a direction where the bad flying stars are located, the consequences would be even worse.
A Real Case
I have came across a real case, in which a young guy lived in a housing estate in Hong Kong. There was a busy highway outside his building. This highway was very close to this gentleman’s home, just outside the windows of the living room, and this was where the bad Flying Stars located. He had absolutely no problem with making money after he moved into this home, but his health got worse over time. Two years later, he was diagnosed with cancer.
I think it could be fairly say that, even if the highway did not cause any Feng Shui problem, the noise and waste gas emitted by the vehicles had adversely affected the health of the occupants in this building. From Feng Shui point of view, the power of bad flying stars could add to the adverse effects and may contributed to the health problems faced by the occupants, if any.
Now you know, roads are usually not good for health from Feng Shui point of view. If possible, choose a residence that is not close to any busy roads.
Some say roads mean water and bring wealth in Feng Shui? Is it true? Let me tell you.
Many people, particularly Chinese, consider roads as good things in Feng Shui. Most of them think that roads could bring money, so it is good to have roads near home. Is it true? Let’s find out.
So why do modern people think that roads mean water? I guess the analogy comes from the fact that there are vehicles running on the road, just like boats moving in the water.
This is an unfortunate mistake. The power of water does not come from its ability to move objects. It’s the energy in the water that matters. Roads do not have the same energy, that’s why ancient Feng Shui masters did not regard roads the same as water.
Road Means Water?
In ancient times there was no motor vehicle. Transportation was done either by boat in the seas, rivers or canals or by vehicles drawn by horses. However, ancient Feng Shui books only mentioned the “real” water as a symbol of wealth. The Feng Shui measures implemented by the masters in the past were most related to “real” water, not vehicles or roads.
Water Means Money?
Even for water, it does not mean wealth all the time. In most occasions, water is related to money. However, Water is also a source of power, if it is used improperly, it would bring bad luck instead of fortune.
We have seen many real cases recorded in Feng Shui books written in hundreds or even thousands of years ago, in which bad happenings were brought by water found in the wrong place and in the wrong form.
I hope this article helps to explain why roads should not be considered as water in Feng Shui. In the next article, we shall discuss what roads actually mean in Feng Shui. In fact, roads could be quite bad in Feng Shui. Wonder how and why? I’ll explain in the next article!
