5 Imperial Feng Shui Tips When Buying A House

Estimated Reading Time: 3mins

Whether you are a new home owner or an existing one, selecting a property with good Feng Shui is one of the most important decisions you will make. Living in a property with good Feng Shui enables us to achieve peak performance in our career, business and relationships. While the opposite can result in undesirable consequences that may affect your physical,mental and even financial well-being.

As Singapore’s leading Imperial Feng Shui master, Master David has been the trusted Feng Shui advisor to many successful clients who are at the forefront of their respective fields.

In this article, we will share Master David’s Imperial Feng Shui checklist to select an auspicious property with good Feng Shui.

1. Regular Land Shape (四点金)

The first step in identifying an auspicious property is to look at the floorplan of the land or house. Based on principles of Imperial landform, the ideal shape of a piece of land or floor plan is either a square or rectangle. The term “Four Point of Gold” (四点金) was coined to describe the ideal piece of land with regular shape.

In ancient China, homes are usually built to adhere to a square layout. This is because the ‘wholeness’ of a house promotes the flow of Qi within, enhancing the wealth and luck of its occupants.

Unfortunately, modern architectural innovations and space constraints in cities often result in missing sectors that can negatively affect the occupants.

2. Incoming Water flow (逆水朝堂)

The second step in selecting an auspicious property is understanding the water flow within the location. As quoted from the Imperial Feng Shui classics “Mountain governs benefactors, while water governs wealth (山管人丁,水管财).”

The study of Imperial landform places important emphasis on the position of the mountain and the water with respect to the residence.

Based on the study of Imperial Landform, the direction of the road (virtual water) and rivers (physical water) should ideally be flowing towards your house.

This auspicious feature is known as incoming water flow 逆水朝堂.  

3. Embracing Water/Jade Belt (玉带环腰)

The third step in selecting an auspicious property is identifying the road surrounding the house. In ancient China, high-ranking government officials donned the jade belt, as a display of their nobility and social stature.

The term “Jade Belt” refers to a feature where the road surrounds the building, much like how the jade belt embraces the waist of the wealthy.

4. Bright Hall (名堂)

With the above two criteria, the fourth feature to look out for is known as ‘Bright Hall’, which refers to the open space in front of the house.

One of the golden verses in the classics of Imperial Landform states that “宅前无余地,子孙稀”. It suggests a correlation between the amount of space in front of a house and the number of descendants and offspring.

With a spacious bright hall in front of your residence, it will usher in wealth and prosperity for generations to come.

5. Metal Mountain (金山)

The final step in selecting an auspicious house is identifying the Mountain landform. This is one of the most powerful Imperial landform features.

According to the study Imperial Landform, there are five elemental mountains, namely: Metal, Earth, Wood, Fire and Water.

Metal mountain refers to a mountain with a round top. It is deemed as one of the most powerful wealth creation mountain features that can bring a tremendous amount of wealth and benefactor support.

Earth mountain refers to a mountain with a flat top. It has similar features as metal mountain because in the study of five elements, earth produces metal.

Wood mountain refers to a mountain with a conical top. In Chinese, it is known as 贪狼星 (Greedy Wolf Star). It is ideal for raising children with high scholastic achievements.

Fire mountain refers to a mountain with a sharp top. It produces misfortunes and major illnesses for the occupants. In urban environments, fire mountain refers to buildings with sharp and pointed tips.

Water mountain refers to a mountain with a wavy top. It produces promiscuity and family disharmony.

In ancient China, the rich and powerful are buried at the auspicious Feng Shui positions near Metal Mountain, Earth Mountain or Wood Mountain. However, it was often not practical to have the Chinese palace situated near mountains, which innovated the Imperial Feng Shui treasure known as the Qian Long Jadeite Mountain.

While it is also impossible to be surrounded by such auspicious landform features as we live in an urban city such as Singapore, Master David’s utmost dedication to his clients is reflected in the launch of Imperial Harvest Qian Long Jadeite Mountain. The Qian Long Jadeite Mountain is the result of 4 years of intensive research and development to ensure our clients enjoy the same quality of Imperial Feng Shui treasures that Emperor Qian Long once used.
