    1. 1. What is your best direction?   Compass Feng Shui for all of us!
    2. 2. Ming Gua Why do Feng Shui consultants use a compass? Because the Magnetic Fields of the Earth affect us all.
    3. 3. What is personal Directionology? Ming Gua, or Destiny Symbol, is a form of Chinese Feng Shui and Astrology. It has been used for thousands of years, and in modern usage, determines the best directions for a person to work, sleep, eat and have serious discussions or do business with another person. This gives you an edge. Ming Gua is considered both Earth Energy (Qi) and Heaven Qi, since it incorporates the directions of the compass on Earth, and Time.
    4. 4. All people, and other living things are born at a specific time. The Magnetic Field of the Earth is in constant motion, so each year, it has a different affect upon us. The Magnetic North Pole moves between 20 and 200 miles per year, meaning that the actual longitude you were born in moves around! When looking at a map, we see True North, or the Polar Axis. Feng Shui uses Magnetic North.
    5. 5. Why does this affect us? Since the Magnetic Pole moves, and the Magnetic Declination or difference from True North changes each year, we assign a patterns of energies (Qi) to each year. These are different for males and females. When we are born, our first breath oxygenates our blood, which is filled with Iron, and we become magnetic beings on our own. Before this, and in the womb, we have the same magnetic resonance as our mothers.
    6. 6. This sets a pattern that we can follow. For thousands of years, the Chinese have documented this pattern and its affects on people. Most documentation was on the Royal family and the great scholars and generals. It shows that we have an inclination to do better in certain things when facing a certain compass direction! It also shows which directions can bring problems. This system of using our Ming Gua can also be brought into a home or workspace, where we use the system called Eight Mansions, corresponding to the 4 Cardinal and 4 Inter-cardinal directions.
    7. 7. What is your Ming Gua? First, we must find your birthdate, using the Chinese Solar Calendar. Here, the year begins on February 4th or 5th. The Chinese New Year Celebration is on a different day based upon the Lunar Calendar. So, a person born in May, 1971, will use 1971. A person born in January 1971 will use 1970 (yes, you are a year older!)
    8. 8. Then, we calculate the Ming Gua Number Male Numbers 1. ubtract 1 from the year if born before February 4th. S 2. dd up all of the numbers of the year. If the sum is 2 digits, add these together. A 3. ubtract this number from 11. If the sum is 10, use 1. This is your Ming Gua number. S 4. f the Gua number is 5, allocate the Gua number 2 (Yin Earth Trigram for males). I Example: Male born January 27, 1972. 1972 – 1 = 1971. 1 + 9 + 7 + 1 = 18. 1 + 8 = 9. Ming Gua is #9, Li Trigram. Female Numbers 5. ubtract 1 from the year if born before February 4th. S 6. dd up all of the numbers of the year. If the sum is 2 digits, add these together. A 7. dd 4 to the total. If the sum is 2 digits, add these together. This is your Ming Gua A number.

    12. 12. How do we use this? Each person has 4 good directions, and 4 that are not so good. Concentrate on the good ones! Using a compass, find the orientation of your home, your office and bedroom. For work, try placing your desk so that you are in a good direction. This is where you look while working For sleeping, and intimacy, find a direction for your bed so that your head is pointing to a good direction when lying down.
    13. 13. What if my partner has different directions? This is common, and so we find the best direction for the partner who is the primary breadwinner, or the person who needs the most support. If a partner is ill, try to get the bed in a good direction for them. If this can’t be done because of the shape of the room, or where the windows or closets and other doors lie (never place a bed under a window or in the path of the door if possible), then get it in a good direction for the room, or at least the other partner.
    14. 14. Special Circumstances Always find a place in the home where someone who is ill can sleep comfortably in a good direction when ill or under stress. This could be the guest room, the sofa or even a place in the office. It could make a difference. Also, if you can’t find a good direction because of the layout of the office, built-in desks, etc., then locate the Sheng Qi direction (Prosperity) on the wall in your best direction. Face this when on an important call!
    15. 15. This bedroom is good from a Feng Shui perspective. If your best directions are West, than the bed is in the best direction! You could swap it for the dresser if East is a good direction. But that puts the flow of Qi from the door right over you. It could go on the north wall, but this is not considered a ‘power position.’ The south wall would be worst, since you are under a window. So, keep the bed where it is for the best Feng Shui, but if North is a better direction, especially for both partners, than move it, since it is still OK Feng Shui! Bedroom !North door bed dresser window
    16. 16. East or West? Look at the chart of the Trigrams, called the Bagua. Notice the 4 Guas or directions in Green. These are the East Life Group (N, S, E, SE). The White Guas are West Life Group (SW, W, NW, NE). Houses are also East or West Life Group, based upon the sitting direction of the house (the back). We want to match our house! Take a compass reading of your house and find where it sits. This is then the Gua or Trigram of the house. Do you match? If not, call me! We can use Ming Gua to make for a better match.
    17. 17. FIND YOUR PROSPERITY DIRECTION NOW! The window here faces the West. Get up and move into a chair that faces your Sheng Qi direction!
    18. 18. FIND YOUR PROSPERITY DIRECTION NOW! The window here faces the West. Get up and move into a chair that faces your Sheng Qi direction! OK, now make a deal!!!
