Many people wonder if house numbers are important in achieving Feng Shui harmony. There is no simple solution to this problem. While the house number by itself isn’t problematic, it can be when combined with other Feng Shui elements.
In Feng Shui, the numbers 1, 6, and 8 are the most auspicious. The numbers 2 and 5 are considered unlucky. Although it is ideal to have auspicious house numbers, we are not always able to do so.
If you’re buying a new house, the first thing you should think about is the outside space and location. A good number isn’t as important as these. Based on the Bagua, your home should face a favourable direction for you.
Other things to think about when it comes to your home are whether there are any negative aspects nearby. You’ll want to find the best house number as well as the most auspicious location. Some people believe that the house number and the date of birth should be in sync.
What are your options if your house number is unlucky? Because you can’t change your house number, you’ll have to learn to make changes outside the house to compensate for the bad numbers.
Create an auspicious area on your porch, for example, to counteract the numbers.
Putting the house numbers on the wall or on the door is not a good idea.
On the other hand, if you have a lucky house number, take advantage of them. House numbers with lucky numbers will help homes sell faster. When looking at your house number, you must also consider the annual star number.
Each year, the numbers shift into new positions and take on new meanings in various aspects of your life. To determine the annual numbers and their meanings based on their location in your home, consult a chart.
Another way to counter inauspicious home numbers is to create auspicious chi movement around your home. Examine your surroundings as well as your own home to see what you can do to improve your numbers. If you’re buying a new house and have the option of choosing a house number, always go with the numbers 1, 6, or 8. The worst numbers to pick are 2 and 5, with the rest being fairly neutral.
Using Fu dogs to protect your home is one way to provide security. Place them on the porch or on the lawn if they are large. Always get two dogs, one on each side of the entrance, facing outward. These help to keep any bad luck from entering by preventing it from lurking outside.
To aid proper chi movement, place a wind chime on the porch. The chimes should be made of hollow metal and have five rods. A water feature can sometimes assist in the absorption of negative chi. A fountain or even a birdbath can be placed near your entrance.
Finally, keep in mind that if you can’t change the house numbers, you can learn to live with them and not let it affect you.
