This post serves to follow up on a free-of-charge astrological consultation session conducted during my Facebook Live (4) video for one of my Facebook followers. https://fb.watch/bM1DurFT5a/ (Part 2) + https://fb.watch/bM1G_OjFz8/ (Part 1)
In the chart reading, it was shown that negative stars such as 天哭，旬空, 截空, 火星，陀羅, 天空 have fallen into and opposing the “children domain” of his “Zi Wei Dou Shu” chart, and it was confirmed by this Facebook follower that both of his children are falling sick easily.
In our private conversation via WhatsApp, this follower has sent over the photo of his bedroom for further Feng Shui analysis as well.
Within the photo, it was shown that a mountain shape display cabinet was hang over the heads of both daughters, where they sleep.
In Feng Shui, there is a saying called 呼形喝象, which means whatever we can see and can describe in terms of what has been observed as having similar appearance to that of another object, then that perceived object will carry the same "qi" energy of which that perceived object is similar to.
This mountain shape display cabinet on top of the heads of the bed is a sign of 泰山壓頂 (heads buried under a mountain). This is considered to be an inauspicious arrangement and have the same negative effect of a malpractice in Feng Shui of having bed under a beam.
Because of how modern homes are built these days with space limitations, it has become a very common sight to see a flurry of beams, shelves, cabinets hanging not just above rooms, but all over the place.
And if you were not observant enough when buying or renting a home, then you might face the Feng Shui predicament of unknowingly placing the bed under a beam.
Sleeping under a beam is one the most renowned Feng Shui ailments that will affect people both mentally and physically. For his case, his Feng Shui problem was reflected by the position of the negative stars within his “Children Domain”. Therefore, we can understand that “Zi Wei Dou Shu” is actually a tool that can reflect the actual condition within the individual’s Feng Shui or environment.
Even if you are oriented to a sleeping direction that taps on your favourable direction according to 8 mansions feng shui, a beam hanging above where you sleep can render that practice redundant. It exerts downward energy pressure on bed occupants.
So what can one do when he or she is sleeping under a beam?
1) False wall or ceiling
The most potent way to remedy this once and for all is to build a false ceiling or false wall to effectively “remove” the beam from the room.
By doing so, the downward “qi” movement is minimized, and this will help to improve sleep.
Even though actual work on it might take a day or two depending on the size of the project, there is this mental block that it is just too much hassle to take on.
Installation of false ceilings or walls is the best and ideal choice to solve this feng shui ailment if it’s a new home and contracting works are already scheduled to be undertaken.
2) Move the bed
Due to space limitation, it may sometimes be totally ridiculous or impossible to position and orient beds in a particular way.
Often times, the Feng Shui problem of sleeping under a beam can be easily and effectively eliminated by the moving of the bed and other furniture like cupboards and tables.
Just shift the bed to a better location. Such better positions can be determined by looking at the Daymaster strength of the individual, determining his favorite directions, or it will also be beneficial to calculate the favorite direction by combining with the Flying Stars of each year to see which direction will be the best for boosting wealth, improving health or relationship…etc.
It will also be good to avoid facing the directions where the 2 Black and 5 Yellow stars reside.
3) Bed head board
If the beam is just protruding slightly from the ceiling and infringing on the sleeper’s head slightly, then a headboard with a thicker body might just move the bed further from the beam’s downward direction, enough to avoid the person’s head.
Do take note of the alignment of doors as moving the bed can expose it to other sources of sha chi emitting from doors and other protruding corners.
4) Canopy bed
A canopy bed is another creative solution to the beam.
The canopy basically acts as a shield for the bed. It also hides the beam from sight of the sleeper when lying on the bed.
And as with Feng Shui, what you don’t see will cause little harm (眼不见不为煞).
Just be wary of the framing of such types of beds.
Sometimes the framing can consist of a structure that forms over the bed.
In that case, you would be back to square one and just replacing beams above the bed to poles over the bed.
Some types of crystals are primarily used to act as a support for Feng Shui in a house.
The bigger they are, the stronger they are to provide that support.
However, to choose the right type of crystals is important.
For instance, it will be harmful for someone whose Daymaster is of the Fire Element that is strong to use Amethyst, as it will further enhance the Fire Element in his chart, bringing about chart imbalance, which is inauspicious.
Although certain crystals can also “hold” up the downward "sha chi" emitting from a beam, due to space limitation in modern Singapore house layouts, such an arrangement may not always be feasible.
It is also not recommended to have crystal that is towards the transparent or lighter shade as they have a tendency to attract negative spiritual energy that may affect the sleep or dreams of the people sleeping nearby.
On the other hand, darker color crystal has the power to ward off negative spiritual energy and is always useful for people who have sleeping problems.
6) Hulu aka Wu Luo
We are now moving into the realms of symbolic Feng Shui.
The Hulu is basically a Feng Shui gourd that is commonly used to “heal” sha chi.
During ancient China, gourds are used to store medicine. Thus, it’s association with healing.
It is common practice for Feng Shui masters in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong to recommend household residents to hang gourds on exposed beams to dissolve the negative energy created by beams and pillars.
They should come with a cap to be effective for this purpose.
The thing with Hulu is that they are available in many varieties these days.
If you can get your hands on a regular old-fashioned gourd, then it will do the job perfectly. - dhammagalleria.com
