The land for this project is on a beautiful, totally natural river, it has 120m of waterfront and is 6 acres in size. These assets will make designing a property with Feng Shui application much easier, even so, there may be compromises and constrains as everyone is different in how they wish to live so it is important in this process to be able to advise, adapt and collaborate to create a wonderful home and the most auspicious building possible. When a building is to be used as a home the ultimate aim is Human Harmony, Health and lastly Prosperity, (a business property is different). The ‘Ba Tze’ of every person living in a building, has to be analysis and taken into account. Many or you may not have heard this term, so I will explain it in another post.
My first step is to assess the site looking at the land and it’s surrounding landscape, from both an areal view and ground level. I will follow the river to understand its flow and strength of ‘Chi’, map the surrounding roads and intersections as well as look at the distant views. All of these are important steps even if a building has already been constructed.
In each post I will add a little snippet of information for you, history, factors or may be misconceptions. I look forward to getting back to you with my first findings and your first snippet.
I am very excited to embark on a new project that I will be sharing with you, but first, I would like to introduce myself, and some of the background behind my Feng Shui studies.
Firstly my name is Fiona Hawkins, I am Australian and after living in Hong Kong for over two decades I have observed Feng Shui being used by people from the smallest village, to the CEO’s of wealthy companies. In the construction of the great high-rise buildings that dominate the skyline, to the needs of a tiny temple, engulfed by development, Feng Shui is taken very seriously. The Hong Kong government had before hand over and still has a fund for compensation if their development interrupts, damages or changes the auspicious Feng Shui of a site.
Yet when I returned to Australia or visited other countries, the practice of Feng Shui bore very little, if any, resemblance to what I had seen. This is where my passion started so I set out in Hong Kong to find a local Chinese Feng Shui Master to teach me traditional authentic Feng Shui.
