Fengshui MythBusters


Having been in this industry for quite some time, we’ve had our fill of questions based off many hearsays on the internet from our clients. Today, we’ll be setting your expectations straight about Fengshui and we’ll be busting some common myths and perceptions about what Fengshui is and what it can do for everyone. Without further ado, let’s get started.


Myth 1: Will I tio 4D/Toto after doing home Fengshui?


Right off the bat, Hoseiki doesn’t promote gambling and the short answer to the question is: No, you will not tio 4D after doing home Fengshui, and that is not the goal of home Fengshui either.

While one of the goals of home Fengshui is to improve your wealth luck, we first need to understand what exactly wealth luck, and the concept of wealth actually is.  

When we talk about the wealth sector of a house, it is the sector that generates the element of the house (Simply put, if the house’s element is metal, and earth generates metal, the earth sector is the wealth sector of the house)

The wealth sector when activated, will give you greater energy and this increased in energy will improve your focus, productivity, health and relationships. These will all in turn improve your decision making and wealth luck. This is the true meaning of wealth luck and as much as I hope all of us can win 4D this year, this is not the true purpose of home fengshui.

If this is true, I will not be always asking my clients to manage their finances wisely through financial planning.


Myth 2: Is Fengshui a religion, can people of different religions do Fengshui on their house?


Contrary to popular belief, Fengshui is in fact not a religion, nor is it a belief, it is purely Metaphysics.

At Hoseiki, we have a lot of non-Chinese clients, from different races and religions and they have all looked for us to help them with their home Fengshui. They have all also benefited from the positive effects of good home Fengshui after consulting us.

The key concept of fengshui is yin and yang, a common symbol used by Taoism as their logo and therefore many people would think that fengshui is actually a religion.

Taoism was founded about 2000 years ago and interestingly it was founded on the concept of yin and yang. But the concept of yin and yang existed long before that. Hence, Taoism was actually founded based off of a Fengshui concept (Yin & Yang), and not the other way round.


Myth 3: I’m afraid to do Fengshui because it might affect my interior Design concept and make the house look like a Chinese restaurant, will you make your/ client’s house look like a temple?


I think this is a concern that many people have when thinking about Fengshui-ing their home. The good news is, no, we won’t make your house look like a Chinese restaurant or temple after Fengshui-ing your home.

We will offer recommendations and subtle changes to improve the Fengshui of your living/working space, and only truly skilled Fengshui practitioners will be able to discern these recommendations and changes.

Many of our clients are young CEOs and when we Fengshui their homes and offices, it is not possible for their offices to look like a Chinese restaurant, otherwise it will destroy their branding. The same goes for their homes as well. The use of classical fengshui for us relies a lot on understanding the layout and structure of a home to solve fengshui problems.


Myth 4: I’ve seen many fountains around and I love them as they give me good luck, is it good to have them at home?


While you may see really beautiful fountains in landed properties or private estates, it really depends on where the fountain is placed and whether it should even be in your home or not.

Fountains are actually used for landed properties, meant to be placed outside the house and within the compound. There is a formula to the use for the fountain and it shouldn’t be used for apartments, so if you are living in an apartment, you should not get them this Chinese New Year.

An example would be that, if you’ve seen any historical or period dramas, you’ll notice that the king’s palace will have many fountains/water forms within his palace compound but not actually within his chambers. So, as nice as fountains are and as much as you may like them, you should avoid having fountains in your home.
