財字

財字臨門仔細詳,外門招得對財良,

若在中門常自有,積財須用大門當。

中房若合安於上,銀帛千箱與萬箱,

木匠若能明此理,家中福祿自榮昌。


病字

病字臨門招疫疾,外門神鬼入中庭,

若在屮門逄此字,災須輕可免危聲。

更被外門相照對,一年兩度送戶靈;

於中若要無凶禍,廁上無疑是好親。


離字

離字臨門事不祥,仔細排來在甚方;

若在外門並中戶,子南父北自分張。

房門必主生離別,夫婦恩情兩處忙;

朝日主家常作鬧,悽惶無地禍誰當。


義字

義字臨門孝順生,一安中戶最爲有;

若在都門招三婦,廊門湲婦變之聲。

於中合字雖爲吉,也有興災害及人;

若是十分無災害,只有廚門實可親。


官字

官字臨門白要詳,莫教安在大門場;

須房公事親州唐,富貴中庭房自昌。

若若房門生貴子,其家必定出官郎;

富貴人家有相壓,庶人之屋實難量。


劫字

劫字臨門不足誇,家中日日事如麻,

更有害門相照看,凶來疊疊禍無左。

兒孫行劫身遭苦,作事因須害卻家;

四惡四凶星不吉,偷人物件害其身。


害字

害字安門用細尋,外人多被外人臨;

若在內門多興禍,家財必被賊來侵。

兒孫行門于害字,作事須因破其家;

良匠若能明此理,管教宅主永興隆。


吉字

吉字臨門最是良,中門內外一齊強;

子孫夫婦皆榮貴,年年月月旺蚕桑。

如有才門相昭者,家道興祟最吉昌;

使有凶神在旁位,也無災害亦風光。


Background of Lu Ban 魯班

Lu Ban (c. 507–444 BC) was a Chinese structural engineer, inventor, and carpenter during the Zhou Dynasty. He is revered as the Chinese god (patron) of builders and contractors.


Lu Ban was born in the state of Lu; a few sources claim he was born far to the west, in Dunhuang, to a family of carpenters or artisans during the Spring and Autumn period of the Zhou dynasty. His original name was Gongshu Yizhi. He was also referred to as Gongshu Ban or Pan. He was supposed to have been an indifferent pupil until the scholar Zi Xia kindled his love of learning. He later learned woodworking from Bao Laodong. The enormous demand for his work supposedly compelled him to invent or improve several carpenter's tools—the saw, the square, the planer, the drill, the shovel, and an ink marking device—to complete his many projects more quickly. His wife was also credited with inventing the umbrella to permit him to work in inclement weather

I am not your usual geomancer. I put effort into where the heart matters most.

My passion didn't started as a business idea. It began with a curious mind.  Feng Shui is not a religion. It is a lifestyle where we work, sleep, eat, and cook matters in the flow of energy.
