The Previous Homeowners Had Bad Luck, Will I..?

Can a house be bad, or have bad luck for me…?

Not necessarily.

A home in itself is not lucky or unlucky ~ it can however have access to good influences… and equally so, to bad ones…

The key element is whether the prosperous Qi can enter and spread joy to all it encounters, or whether it is hindered, deflected or worse…. missing completely!

What the previous people experienced is an indication, and is to be considered for sure, but you are not them so your experience could be different.

Not only is the Feng Shui of the home crucially important, but your birthdate is equally so, as there is no one-size-fits all when it comes to houses and people ~ every connection is different.

Your birth chart is unique and will connect to each home uniquely. You may not have the same career as they did or have the same family, so your experiences in the home are going to be equally different, and your luck within the home equally so.

However, if numerous occupants have experienced similar issues like career issues, monetary loss, relationship challenges and the house has transferred owners a lot, then clearly something is amiss ~ you may be in for a rough ride.

Such history can indicate the house experienced ‘poor prosperity Qi flow’ but that does not mean it will always be that way. The key word here is ‘experienced.’

The Feng Shui of a house is permanent: just like you and I, it has a ‘birth chart’ that defines its character. Such a chart was created when the home was built, and energy was somewhat ‘locked’ into position and only a major renovation can change this.

However, your home is affected by a shuffle of the Feng Shui Influencers (Qi) coming into the home, and these change every 20 years. (There are yearly influential changes too, and they can be managed with Annual Updates.)

You see there are cycles of time divided into ’20 year’ cycles in authentic Feng Shui, and each cycle brings forward new influencers. We could say this is like a changing of the guards, of the governing leaders and when they change, there is a ripple effect.

Kinda like a government change with a new President or Prime Minister and they are in position for ‘X’ number of years, then they are voted out and a new governing body steps up to rule.

Feng Shui has a somewhat parallel evolving process, and just like voting in a government, whether you like it or not, they are here to stay…

What can be good fortune in one cycle of time, can reverse to bad fortune in another, so monitoring things over time is important.

Some houses can be so poorly designed and positioned, that they become problematic for all who live there, regardless of what cycle of time it is. You generally know these houses, they are unkempt, change owners often and show signs of dilapidation and stress.

Yep, you definitely want to avoid these houses unless you have a trained professional with you who can assess things and determine if a technique to change the Feng Shui can be implemented. If unsure, best to step away as we always want you to have the best luck you can!

It is important to remember that a house will affect you regardless of the wall colour, sofa position or how many bedrooms it has. Feng Shui is all about how the environment affects you, so clearly the 4 walls you decide to eat, sleep and be merry in will influence you right?


Some houses affect certain individuals in a negative way, and some more positively. Some may simply need some Feng Shui remedies to mediate what has been negative to something more positive. Either way, always good to remember that nothing is carved in stone, and situations change, or can be changed, over time.

Of top importance is that Feng Shui is dynamic, and as such, is under constant change. Do not be afraid of change, it is our world, our life and how we operate in it, and sometimes a little change here and there is just what we need.

While there is a heck of a lot you can do to improve the Feng Shui yourself, a trained professional can assess more accurately, and advise precisely how to achieve the best results for you and your family.

My advice here ~ seek help as you prepare to make the biggest investment of your life and hire a Feng Shui professional to assess if this is the home for you.

Is the home you’re considering a lump of coal, or is it a diamond in the rough…?
