Are you really prepared for 2016?

Numerology and Feng Shui
“Nothing we learn in this world is ever wasted.”
The Chinese are very superstitious when it comes to numbers, they choose telephone numbers, house number, business numbers, car number plates and anything that has numbers in very carefully.
Every month we get to visit many homes and businesses on consultations and it amazes us as how far our clients take Feng Shui almost to paranoia, which is not good. If you have bad numbers do not worry about it, as I will show you how to eliminate the inauspicious effects.
A little story to begin with, last Friday night I was parked outside the cinema waiting to pick up my two boys and as much as I hate to admit it I was listening to BBC radio 4. I know you always think of the Archers or such like and this is what my Grandma used to listen too, they have some great debates on some nights.
Anyway this program was about superstition, and one of the interviewers was saying how she was not superstitious but had spent the last 30 years saluting magpies or never walking under ladders or the cracks of pavements. Well numbers and Feng Shui, are more superstitious Chinese folklore than anything else, do I take it seriously? Yes and no, if I
found the perfect Feng Shui house with a good facing direction and it was good for my family but the house number was number 4, I would still buy it although I have to admit I would use the counter measures listed below.
The main reason these numbers are considered unlucky is because the way the numbers sounds when spoken especially to the Cantonese. An example in western numbers would be the #11 could sound like heaven or #8 sounds like weight or #1 sounds like son, do you see what I mean? So if you have an unlucky #4 and you are from a country other than China. Think of #4 as sounding like “more” which is great.
Numbers considered unlucky:
#4 (Sei) the worst number, why? Because in Cantonese when spoken sounds like the word death. #13 because if you add 1=3 = 4 as above. #24 #104 are also considered unlucky
Numbers considered lucky
8, 18, 28, 38, 48, 54, 68, 80, 84, 88, 99, 168 & 108 are all good numbers, the reason #8 is so lucky is because if you say the word (patt) it sounds like “faat” which means “prosperity & abundance”
There are many other numbers I have read about that are considered unlucky in my opinion this is “cannon fodder” and just written about to fill books, if you think about it you could go on for ages, #4 when spoken in English sounds like door, more, store, bore, jaw, paw and “SAW” which out of all of these sounds the worst
The cure:
If you own a home or business with a 4 or 13 is to draw a circle around the number, seriously it is that simple. The circle is extremely powerful and encloses the inauspicious effects of a negative number. So if you have a house number 4, a cheap way of curing is to go outside and draw a circle around your number or if you have time and money pop down to your local hardware store and find one of those ceramic door numbers that you can customise with a circle around the number, all this time you were worrying about nothing.
How seriously do we take numbers? I would be over the moon if we found the perfect house with great flying stars and it was #8 or 88, but I would not be put off buying it if it were #4 or 13, I would use the cure as above though or change it to a house name like “rose cottage” etc.
Michael has a car number plate with #88 in it; our fax number has three #8’s our telephone # has double nine, so yes we are superstitious a little but not paranoid about it and using the countermeasures above negate the problem, so please do not waste any energy worrying if your house number is 4 or 13, remember in many European countries #13 is very lucky and in Xuan Kong flying star #4 is a romance star. Also remember how far do you take it, both Michael and I were born in the forth month April, could this be bad? If you divide 8 by 2 it equals 4, you can play with numbers all you like and make them work good or bad.

We like a house, number 41?
Shall we buy or leave?
Is there a cure?
Thanks
Jenny
Hi Jenny,
4 is not good in a house number although the solution is to purchase a round door sign and make sure the number is inside the sign as shown in the picture on this page.
Kind regards,
Daniel

Hi again, I have just accepted a house that is number 4, will it mean we are goig to be very unlucky? What can I do to prevent this? Thanks
Hi Jodie,
The number 4 is not a good number although I would not let it put me off my dream home. The remedy to this is to make sure that the house number is presented in a round house sign; this is an easy fix and can be bought at most DIY shops. Good luck with the new home.
Kind regards,
Daniel
Hello,
We\’re trying to purchase a home that has a block # 6150. Can you please advise if it\’s good.
I truly appreciate you response! Thank You!
Hi Susan,
I would say that the block number is ok and should not cause problems.
Kind regards,
Daniel
Thank You!!
I am looking at a condo 1404. Is it a good number ?
Hi John,
Its not a great number but you can weaken this by placing a circle round the condo number such as a plaque.
Kind regards,
Daniel
Hello Daniel. Thank you for your reply. What I will like to know is when you say \”weaken\” are you stating that problems will still arise even placing a circle around the number 1404 ? Thank you
Hi Michael,
Putting a circle round the number tends to neutralise the ill effects and should avoid problems rather than weaken.
Kind regards,
Daniel
I am considering either:
88 street, # 1601
or
144 Street, # 532
Are they good or bad? Appreciate your response.Thank you.
Hi, 88 is considered the most auspicious and 1601 second best, the other two numbers are not great.
Kind regards
Daniel

daniel
Thank u Michael. Just signed for it today. It felt good going up the elevator and the digitized voice saying 8 when door opens. This will be everytime I reach my floor and double flying stars 8 wait for me at my door facing South Happy :).
Or should I say Thank u Daniel ?
Hi
Can you please tell me if the number 58, which makes it a 4 number is bad and can we rectify it by putting a circle around it.
Thank you. Lillian
Hi Lillian, the number 58 is good, anything with an 8 is good so no remedy is needed.
Kind regards
Daniel

Daniel
Hi can you PLEASE help. Im currently viewing a property next week but its number 14 and its really putting me off although its the only place i may be offered. What should I do? Thank you
Hi Jodie,
The number 14 equals up to 5 which is not bad and should not cause any problems. If you are concerned about the 4 in the number, you could buy a door number sign and use a circular sign for each number.
Good luck with the property.
Kind regards,
Daniel
Hi Michael,
The name of our company starts with number 4 (4HM Airetech Ref & Aircon Trading and Services) Will it be ok to draw a circle in number 4 to remove the bad luck.

Second , We tranfer our new office to 3429 is it a lucky number and if not how can we remove the bad luck . Hope you can give me a reply since our soft opening will start on July 1, 2016 .thanks

If possible, I would put a circle around the number 4 on your company logo as you suggested. 3429 is considered a good number as it adds up to 9 and I would not worry about this number.
Kind regards,
Daniel

Our home address is 746
My business license is 01352424
Any suggestions?
Thanks
Sonia
Hi Sonia,
Your home address equals to 8 which is a very auspicious Feng shui number.
Your business license equals to 3 which is not great although it is not one of the worst. When displaying your license number, you can play a circle around it e.g. on invoices etc.
Kind regards,
Daniel
Hi, My wife wrote you about our house number 2474 which you said to put in a circle. Do you mean the entire number goes in one circle or do you mean each of the 4 numbers has its own circle? Thank you!
Hi Paul,
The entire number 2474 goes in one circle or oval plaque similar to the image linked below

Hi Melissa,
As you said, the number equals to 4 which is not auspicious; I would place the house number in a round sign outside your home to avoid problems.
Kind regards,
Daniel

Hi, I just found out our house has a terrible number. It is 2474. We have lived here for 30 years. Is there a way to cure the bad number?
Hi Laurie,
When you add 2474 together, it equals to seventeen which is an inauspicious number so I would suggest having house number signs made up for your home with a round plaque as shown below as this will weaken the influence of the numbers.

Hello I am planning to buy and shop; the shop has everything positive besides it\’s number which is number 13. Should I buy this shop?
Hi Sachin,
I\’m afraid that I cannot advise on the shop just on a number alone although when dealing with inauspicious numbers, you should display the number for the shop in a round plaque to weaken the influence of the number.
Kind regards,
Daniel
We are looking a townhome and its really beautiful but what i am worried about is the street number where the townhouse is located is in 4\’th street… The house number though is #125. Do i need to be worried about this street number and what is the cure for it? I cannot out a circle to the street sign….
hi Ann,
The house number equals to eight which is very auspicious. I would not worry too much about the street number as the effect will be spread across a lot of homes.
Kind regards,
Daniel
we bought a property block 2 lot 4, what is the meaning and what the cure? thanks
Hi Gianella,
the number two is an auspicious number although the number 4 is inauspicious as it translates roughly to death. with the number 4, if you have a door sign for the lot 4, I would have the number displayed in a circle plaque.
Kind regards,
Daniel
Hi,
Is Block 1 Lot 3 a bad address? My husband was born Jan 16, 82. And I was born Nov 28\’79. Please help. Thanks
Hi,
I am a single mom with a teenaged daughter. After years of living in a temporary apartment, we finally moved into a great house that we are loving so far. My daughter finally has her own bedroom and we are so happy and grateful. The address is 2567 which I am told equals \”2\” and would make my home a \”happy\” home. Is this true? And is there anything else I should know. Also coincidentally, the house number is a combination of mine snd my brother\’s birthdays. He passed away two years ago and we miss him so. It was a reassuring feeling when I realized the house numbers were made up of our birthdays because I feel like he had a hand in my good fortune to have found this house and was able to even get it given the circumstances I was in. Any information you may be able to tell me is appreciated! Thanks, Barbie
Hi Barbie,
Congratulations on your new home. 2567 will equal to 20 which is auspicious as it is an even number. I hope you have a great life in your new home and make many happy memories with your daughter.
Kind regards,
Daniel

Hi Rinku,
The fact that this equals to 4 is not a problem, it is more if there is a 4 in the actual number so I would not worry about it Rinku.

I am a Realtor listing a house in an area with a lot of Asian buyers. My clients want to list their property at $484,900. Is the negative effect of the 4s negated by the 8 and 9? Would it be considered a luckier number to list at $484,888?
Hi Jon,
I would recommend listing the property at £484,888 if possible as like you said, the 8\’s will help negate the effect of the 4\’s.
Kind regards,
Daniel
Hi,
Thank you for the article above.
I am moving to a new property and the adress is the following: Flat 1, building 705. Would you be able to help me understand the vibration of this number?
Many thanks,
Juliana
Hi Juliana,
the 7 and 5 in your building number add up to 12 which is a good number. 1 is also a good number which means you have a good address.
Kind regards,
Daniel
Hi Daniel,
That\’s great, thank you so much I was just worried as all the numbers together (1, 705) added to a four.
Thank you so much for clarifying!
Juliana
Hello
My business number is 157,..which sums 13 = 4…I put the number inside an oval Red color (not a circle). Is it going to work too? The fact that it is an oval line instead of a circle makes any difference?
Thank you
Maria Jannuzzi
Hi Maria,
Apologies but I have only just come across this as it was in the spam folder.
I would try to buy a sign that is a circle for a door number sign if possible as this will be much more effective.
Kind regards,
Daniel
Hi there,
We have recently moved into a appt 404 and a new office A102, things are not working out too well since then, both professionally and personally, worried!

Hi Mann,
It is impossible to give you detailed advice without seeing the buildings but the best thing you can do is put a circle around the building numbers and you will be amazed at the difference that this will make.

Hi,
My wife and I are planning to buy an apartment unit 404. We are worried about the number as its double 4. Just want to ask if it is bad luck?

Since I have moved into this particular apartment 13/4 an inconceivable amount of crisies have occurred in my life and the life of those I am accountable for. I never considered my apt # until i just recently did the math and read about 13/4 house numbers. I was shocked to see descriptions of the horrendous roller coaster ride I am on.
Please I need to know how to get out of this apt. This was to be a temporary residence and yet we have not been able to get our selves out and now feel uncertain of our future. I am worried what will go wrong next. And to note I was NOT superstitious and did not know anything about this 13/4 number until just this past week.
I have a house number 5, street number 9.
Is this good or bad?
I think is by itself is very good [ 5 elements etc], and we know that 9 is good also. Together, im not sure?
What does a house number 1465 mean? I understand 14 isn\’t good, please advice what to do. Thanks.
Hi I\’m looking at the best way I can display the house number 47 on a feature front fence or is this a number I should display more discreetly. Please advise thanks Dj
Dear Maam,
We are moving in to a house number 62. please advise if it is a good or bad number?
thank you
Hi Tsures,
6 and 2 adds to 8 which in Feng Shui, is a fantastic number and with regard to the Five Elements, the number 6 represents metal and the number 2 represents earth which is fortunate as metal enhances earth in the productive cycle.
To put it simply, this is a good number for a home and you should look at this as a positive number. If you wanted to get a number plaque for the home, I would recommend using a good quality slate in rectangular or square shape to compliment this.
Kind regards,
Daniel
Hi,
my house number is 1589. Kindly advise what to do.
Thank you
Hi Mala,
I would recommend a metal plate on the front door with the number of your house on in a rectangular shape as this will create all five elements which is known as a Sheng Chi cycle
Your indivual numbers represent water, metal and fire(1water, 5metal, 8metal, 9fire)
Kind regards,
Daniel
Thinking if buying one of two houses in North Texas one address is 2455 which is a 7 and the other is 553 which is a four worried about my family we have 4 children and these are the best if what if what we can afford will simply putting either address in a circle or maybe an oval help? Thank you for your help!
Hello Daniel,
My house number is 31. Is this a good or bad number. Drawing a circle in this number can help if its not a good number. Thank you.
Catherine
Hi Catherine,
You may have learnt that 31 is an inauspicious number as the two numbers equal to 4 although you have the elements wood and water from the 3 and 1 which can be very good.
Hope this helps Catherine,
Kind regards,
Daniel
