Activate Qi in safe ways.

In the realm of Feng Shui, doing activation is something that is normal and we are doing it for many different reasons. The usual activation media is by using moving water. The container needs to be at least 2 feet deep and the water needs to be moving calmly. Avoid using harsh moving water that’s mimicking the waterfall.

But… in this article we are not going to learn about water activation. To use water, you will need at least a basic knowledge of Date Selection. Selecting the timing of where to activate the water could be tricky. I am going to save it for another time, another article.

Three ways that you can safely do to activate Qi in your house. Direction, location, and maintenance. To do these ways, you will need to know beforehand the mapping of your energy in your house. For example, if you want to improve business opportunities for this year (2020), then you will need to know which energy (Star) to use and where it resides this year. Then, we can start activating energy.

I write several articles regarding the Stars and what they can do and their current location in the year 2020. You might want to browse them to find the one that’s suitable for your needs.

Direction, Location, and Maintenance


Beginners might confuse the usages of direction and location. When we are using .which one and how to use them properly.

Direction and location usages could be different from the type of formula that you use. Some formula focuses more on the direction and some on the location and some it’s the combination of the two. Confuse? I might say it takes practice to know which one is which.

Let’s understand it easier by using this example. To get align with the energy, let say, Star #1. This year Star #1 resides in the NE. Let say you want to align with this energy to support your work. Then you could use the energy by tilting your desk to face the NE direction.

To know how to measure the working desk, you could read my article >> here.


Now let’s try for the location usage. Let’s say you are moving to a new apartment and now you want to decide which bedroom you will be using. There are several ways to decide this, for now, let’s take the Flying Star Natal Chart for this example.

After you plotted the chart, you discover that one of the bedrooms has Star #6 as its Sitting Star. You like Star #6 and you decide to move in into that room. While you are staying in that room (sleeping), you will receive the influence of Star #6. You will show as a person with Star #6 quality.


The last technique that you can use to activate the energy in a certain area of your house is to maintain the condition of the area. You should keep the area tidy, neat, airy and bright. Create enough space so that Qi could flow effortlessly.

P.S. You might want to pay attention to your Life Palace in the house. In the Eight Mansions system, the sector also known as Fu Wei (Stability).
