Many people with troubled relationships have often turned to Feng Shui gifts and remedies as a last resort to solve their romantic woes. However, very few know or understand what Feng Shui is about, often thinking it is some kind of mystical voodoo to charm their potential targets.

Contrary to some beliefs, Feng Shui is not just about healing troubled relationships or buying Feng Shui gifts and ornaments to decorate the house.

Yin Yang

Feng Shui Fundamentals

Feng Shui (literally "Wind and Water" in Chinese), is all about balance and harmony between us and our environment. Just like the Yin and Yang energies (whose symbol, as pictured on the right, is becoming increasingly well-known), Feng Shui is about balance. Where there is light, there will always be darkness; where there is fire, there will always be water; and so forth.

Feng Shui teaches that every individual interacts differently to their environment. Sometimes, a particular environment - such as a house or office - is so suited to you that you find that everything in your life is great. However, if you have troubled relationships or financial woes, it is quite likely that there is some discord or imbalance between yourself and your environment, manifesting in your daily life.

By subtly modifying your environment, you will be able to restore this balance, and consequently improve your life. Modifying your environment can be as simple as changing the angle or position of your work desk, or by buying Feng Shui gifts such as mandarin ducks and placing them in proper locations in your home or office.

There are many systems of authentic classical Feng Shui. This website focuses on the Xuan Kong (pronounced "Shu-en Kong") system. Xuan Kong (literally "Mysterious Void" in Chinese) is a complete system which includes complicated formulae to calculate optimal positioning and composition of an environment.

Pa Kua

Eight Mansion (Pa-Kua) School of Feng Shui

There are a few sub-schools within the Xuan Kong system, including the popular Flying Stars school. Our descriptions in this website are based on the Eight Mansion school, also known as the Pa-Kua school. In the Pa-Kua technique, the compass is divided into eight directions, each of which is depicted by a trigram, as can be seen to your left. Each of these directions have different significance. For example, one of the Pa-Kua directions is the personal or relationship direction, which will be of the most interest to someone with troubled relationships. Furthermore, the significance of each direction differs for each individual.

To find out how each Pa-Kua direction affects you personally, you will need to calculate your Kua Number. You can do this by searching for a Kua Number calculator on Google. The calculator will provide you with your Kua Number, and more importantly, what each Pa-Kua direction means to you. In short, four of those directions will be positive and favorable to you, while the other four will have negative connotations for you.

The eight Pa-Kua directions can be briefly summarized as follows:
