“Nothing we learn in this world is ever wasted.”

Feng Shui and numbersThe 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 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 countermeasures listed below.

The main reason these numbers are considered unlucky is that the way the numbers sounds when spoken specially 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.

Feng Shui and numerologyHow seriously is numerology taken around the world?

While on a recent trip to Kuala Lumpur, I checked into my hotel and was given my room and floor number and took the lift up to my floor (23A). It took me a few seconds to realise what was going on until I noticed that any floor level with a 4 in it was listed as 3A or 13A etc.

I spent three days in Kuala Lumpur while on the final part of my honeymoon tour and noticed the avoidance of the number 4 all throughout the trip; there would be no number four option on a restaurant menu, no four in a street address and many more times over the three days.

The use of the number four is taken very seriously in Malaysia and I saw the number four being avoided as much as possible during my trip.

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 is also considered unlucky

Numbers considered lucky

8, 18, 28, 38, 54, 68, 80, 84, 88, 99, 168 & 108 are all good numbers, the reason #8 is so lucky is that 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

How to tell if your house number is good or bad

Let’s say your house number is 2391; you would need to add all of the numbers up until they equal to a single number which in this case would equal to 6.

Let’s say your house number is 395; you would need to add all of the numbers up until they equal to a single number which in this case would equal to 8.

Let’s say your house number is 85 you would need to add all of the numbers up until they equal to a single number which in this case would equal to 4.

If your house number has a 4 in it, I would still suggest putting a circle around the number when it is displayed to weaken the effect.

Here is a general guide for each number and if it is good or bad.
1 – good
2 – good
3 – ok
4 – bad
5 – ok
6 – good
7 – ok
8 – good
9 – very good

The cure:

Feng Shui numerology house signsIf 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 fourth month of 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.

    1. Hi Iluminada,

      31 adds up to 4 which is inauspicious in Feng Shui. I would recommend displaying the 31 in an oval sign by your front door to neutralise the energy.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  1. Moving to house number 22 and after reading your article i dont know what should I do? I have heard 11 and 22 are angel numbers so do you think 22 number is not a good house number?

    1. Hi Nancy,

      22 adds up to 4 which is inauspicious in Feng Shui. I would recommend displaying the 22 in an oval sign by your front door to neutralise the energy.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

  3. Hi

    Thinking of starting a new business using name.
    Alpha88.
    What do you think in terms of luck and success ?

    1. Hi Aadila,

      The name sounds great. the number 8 is very auspicious in Feng Shui.

      Wishing you luck with your new business,
      Daniel

  4. Dear Daniel,

    I have read your articles about house number with great interest
    I have recently thought of getting this apartment on level 14 unit 04 (14-04)
    I love this place which is very good in terms of ventilation and the unit even at 6.15pm while I was there viewing, we don’t need to on the lights

    But my concern is exactly like its 14-04 unit number and that I am not sure if its easy for me to sell off in the future.
    This apartment is actually meant to rent out but not ruling out the possibility to keep for future own stay
    Appreciate your inputs

    Thanks

    1. Hi Corrine,

      As long as you display the numbers in an oval sign, this will negate the influence of the number 4.

      I bought a home that is addressed as number 4 last year and have had no problems since moving in so I would not worry too much about it 🙂

      With resale, this could take longer to sell in certain countries due to beliefs so this would be worth considering although if you plan on keeping this for yourself, this shouldn’t be an issue.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  5. My house number is 83, I feel frustrated and loss of money and relations and people. What can I do? Also do I draw the circle around the whole number or individual numbers?

    1. Hi Jaya,

      I’m sorry to hear that you’re having problems and hope that things improve soon.

      The number 83 adds up to 2 in a single number and is not an issue.

      I would recommend reading through the 2022 Flying star analysis as this can help improve different areas of your life and also has suggestions for cures that you may already have around your home such as blankets or decorations – https://www.fengshuiweb.co.uk/advice/flyingstars2022.htm

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel
