As an occasional contributing author to a couple of well known websites, I am regularly forwarded Feng Shui articles written by others since I’m on a list to also receive them. Most of the time, unfortunately, the articles have been written by a sincere but misguided novice who continues to perpetuate Feng Shui myths. And some of the time, the articles have been written by people just trying to sell unnecessary stuff in the name of Feng Shui.

How is a person to know truth from fiction? How is the non-professional supposed to distinguish what is real and verifiable versus an old wives’ tale? Of course I count myself as one reliable source, both through my published materials and this on-going Newsletter. Questions are ALWAYS welcome and often end up as good Newsletter topics to share with others.

Two of the most enduring Feng Shui beliefs will be covered in this Newsletter: one true and one false. The false belief that gets perpetuated time and time again is the notion that having the number 4 in your address is unlucky. Just last month, an emailer asked me if they could just add an extra number to their physical address in order to improve the Feng Shui numerology. Numerology is a completely separate predictive art, where the number total of the address is taken into consideration. And I’m NOT knocking numerology. In fact, I consulted with a Western Pythagorean Numerologist 13 years ago before I went back to using my maiden name of Diamond. But in Feng Shui folklore, the reason the number 4 has such a bad reputation, is only because the word sounds to the ear very similar to the Chinese word for death. Having a number 4 in your address, like I do, has nothing to do with whether your house has good Feng Shui or not.

Another popular Feng Shui belief is that you should not have a front door aligned directly with a back door. This one is true folks! The concept is that energy which enters through the front door can leave too quickly through the back door. The result is that the occupants have more difficult time saving money. It’s actually a very profound concept to ponder: that energy flow through a house can translate to financial luck. However, this one singular design flaw is not the only reason to pass on a house. In fact, this is one of the easiest flaws to fix. In this newsletter, you will see a picture how one of my clients very elegantly created an “obstacle” in her foyer. The table and items on it provide a visually satisfying, welcoming barrier between the front door and a back window.
