“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. How about my son being born on April 04, 2004 (04-04-2004) 8:00 am? What are your thoughts on this sir?

    Thanks,
    Dee

    1. Hi Haydee,

      I don’t see this being an issue, although if you wanted to, you could display his year of birth in an oval piece of good quality card somewhere in the house to be cautious.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  2. Hi,
    Would buying a unit 1/4 be something to worry about? I assumed this would add up to 5 so not an issue but not sure as the address still contains a 4 in it?
    Thanks
    Kom

    1. Hi Kom,

      Any number with a 4 in it is classed as inauspicious, although you can neutralise this number by displaying it in an oval sign at or near your front door. If you don’t want to have a sign made, you can write this on a card and keep it near the door, out of sight.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  3. The house iam buying is number 10 and I have since read the number 1 is not good for finding and keeping a lasting partner. I have been so unlucky in love and all I want is someone to share my life with / to love. Am I making a mistake in buying this house? Iam already so lonely and this number house number seems to be against me, i am nearing completion. Thank you. Debbie.

    1. Hi Debbie,

      I’m not an expert in numerology, although my understanding of the number 1 is that it signifies confidence, proactive and dedicated which can be used to your advantage in finding love. If you are worried about this, it may be worth getting in touch with someone who specialises in numerology, as they will be able to offer better advice.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  4. I have concerns about the new business address my business partner chose. The address is #24, 14th Street, which I recently found out, and I knew that anything related to 4 was bad. What should we do since we will commence this July?

    1. Hi Yuyu,

      The number 4 is classed as an inauspicious number, although you can display the number in an oval sign by the entrance to help neutralise the energy of this. For your building, I would display the address number and street number in a sign.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Pete,

      55 adds up to 1 as a single digit and is a positive number.

    Is something to worry about?
    Or do something, please help me

    Thank you

    1. Hi Kwini,

      I would display the whole address in an oval sign or piece of paper near your front door to neutralise the influence of the number 4.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  7. Hi,

    My husband and I are moving into a tall residential building. our flat no is 2804 ( which is 28th floor and number 04 flat)
    How can I avoid any negative influence as i am aware 04 isn’t considered good. However 2804 totals up to 5 which i believe is okay? We are trying for a baby and have a new buisness i just wanna make sure it all goes well.

    Any knowledge would be appreciated.

    Many Thanks,
    Isha

    1. Hi Isha,

      I would not worry at all with these numbers, in fact a friend/client with a similar combination of numbers has just had their first child so testament to that.

      Good luck and all the best.

      Best wishes

      Daniel

      1. Hi Daniel,
        We actually moved into 4804 and we are now pregnant 🙂
        I hope 4804 is alright too?

        Many Thanks
        Isha

        1. Hi Isha,

          Congratulations!

          As long as you display the number 4804 in an oval sign, this will be fine 🙂

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

    1. Hi Rachel,

      The house number adds up to 4 which is inauspicious in Feng Shui. To counteract this, you can display the number 22 in an oval sign by your front door. I live in a number 4 home and wouldn’t let it put you off 🙂

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. Hello, I am planning to rent a ground floor shop with the door number 35-0, Street 19/KS9 . As per my beliefs, my lucky numbers are 3 and 9, and my date of birth is 30.06.1987. Can you please confirm if this office is located south facing and whether the number 35-0 is compatible for my business growth with my lucky numbers and birthdate according to Feng Shui principles?”

      1. Hi Mugelan,

        I’m afraid that we don’t offer numerology analysis to this level.

        I would recommend contacting someone who specialises in numerology to see if they can help.

        Kind regards,
        Daniel

  8. Good evening, I am looking to buy a house which is number 47 is this bad energy ?

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    1. Hi Liz,

      I would recommend displaying the number 47 in an oval sign; this will help dissipate the inauspicious influence of the number 4. I would not worry about the number 4 as long as you display this in the sign; I live in a number four house and have had no issues since moving in 🙂

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  9. I am considering buying a house which is number 54. I am getting mixed messages online. Can you help me understand if 54 is a good or bad number?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Kai,

      The number 54 has a 4 in it, which is considered inauspicious in Feng Shui. This can easily be resolved by displaying the number 54 in an oval sign by your front door and is something I have done in my own home (number 4).

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Kal,

      I would recommend displaying the number 74 in an oval sign as this will dissipate the negative energy of the number 4 in this number.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi Tracy,

        706 adds up to 4 as a single digit, and 4530 has a 4 in the number, which is inauspicious in numerology. You can neutralise both of these by displaying the whole number in an oval sign at or by your front door.

        I hope this helps.

        Kind regards,
        Daniel

      2. Hello I am wondering about apartment number 4/54, this has two fours and in total adds up to 13 which is also a 4.
        Will an oval circle be enough for this or is there more that can be do e

    1. Hi Genalyn,

      The number 4711 has a 4 in it, so I would advise displaying “4711” in an oval sign displayed at the front of the restaurant.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi Daniel,
        Good day!
        we are planning to move to a new apartment No. 309
        but in the same building No. 104 (apt 105) Street 4

        is there something to worry about or to prepare?
        Please help
        Thank you

        1. Hi Kwini,

          I would recommend displaying the whole address on a piece of paper or card and drawing a red or black circle around the address and storing it by your front door.

          I hope this helps and hope the move goes well.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

    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

    2. 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,

  10. 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,
      Daniel

        1. Hi Marco,

          The number 4 is considered inauspicious, so I would recommend displaying the whole number 14 in an oval sign by your front door to neutralise the effect of the number 4.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  11. Hi,

  12. 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

  13. 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
    CT

    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

  14. 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
