Different Feng Shui Styles

There are many different Feng Shui definitions by various masters in Singapore.  All are right in their own way. Thus, to avoid such debate, this article is not into explaining the meaning of Feng Shui nor different schools of Feng Shui.  In broad sense, we are classifying Feng Shui into general styles based on an extensive reading, observation and personal experience. In Singapore, there exist broadly 3 Feng Shui styles:

1.  Traditional/ Classic Feng Shui (interchangeably used)

2.  Modern Feng Shui

3.  Others

Traditional/Classic Feng Shui is based on wisdom knowledge passed down from China or few generation of Feng Shui masters without much changes during the knowledge transfer. Mainly based on 坐北朝南 door direction (Situated North Facing South) ; emperor’s favorite direction.  This also include traditional tiling of door and placing traditional Feng Shui items (开光)+ colors depending  on the directions/ Bazi.  Objective is to tweak the current house as much as possible to fit the traditional framework of what an ideal Feng Shui house will be.   Modern Feng Shui, is a fusion of traditional + modern context (tweaking to Singapore style such as HDBs in Singapore environment).  Often justify by Feng Shui masters in term of common sense given this modern living environment.  Most of the time, these resonate with house owners by the rational and familiarity.  They are in favor of furniture arrangement, Feng Shui items (be it 开光 or no 开光), creating partition (physical or space differentiation) and house colors. The third category, others.  These styles originated from other countries such as India, Tibet and Thailand.  They are more towards Deities, Gods, Spirits and Holy People/ Guru.  Often, come in the form of statues, amulets, bracelets and other items.  Placed strategic in house or wear on.

Individual’s Mindset

From author’s view point, it really depends on what’s the house owner’s mindset, personal preference on their Feng Shui master (based on 缘分) and circle of friends associated. Secondly, Feng Shui or Geomancy does not have any religion associated.  The association of religion mainly is to infuse a positive energy or faith into the objective or living space to either bring in more positive energy and ward of negative energy (or evil spirits).  Energy infuse is normally by priest, medium or monk (due to their high mediation level of concentration in their belief). Lastly, Feng Shui masters are seen as their guidance teacher which will help to achieve their life goals without much hurdles.  Common house owner mindset is better believe since they are an expert in this field and have already helped so many people succeed.   Hopefully, the above article will give the readers a clear picture of Feng Shui in Singapore with a clarity of mind when choosing their Feng Shui master. Lastly, all feedback are appreciated! Good and bad Feng Shui master are often been assessed on their audit results and choice of words.
