Staying in tune with yourself is very important. Just like a piano or any other instrument, we can sometimes get out of tune. And when we find we are out of tune, Feng shui can help us stay tuned, reduce stress and get things done.
But how can we tune ourselves into the power ? How can we avoid places which make us tired ?
Here is a good tool to find out about your Lo Shu Number and if you belong to the west or to the east group.
To find your Lo Shu number simply add up all the last 2 digits of your year in which you were born until you get a single digit.
For example if you are born 1961 then add up 6+1= 7
and subtract it from 10 if you are male : 10-7 = 3
add 5 if you are female : 5 + 7 = 12 (get a single digit) 1 + 2 = 3
To find your Lo Shu number you can also add up all digits of your year in which you were born until you get a single digit.
For example if you are born 1965 then add up 1+9+6+5= 21 2+1= 3
and subtract it from 11 : 11-3 = 8
your Lo Shu Number would be the 8
If you are born 2000 and younger you need to take the Referenznumber 9
born 2004 : 0+4 = 4
9- 4 =5 5 is a special Number and is represented by the 2 if you are male and 8 if you are female.
Number 1,3,4,and 9 belong to the east group : favourable directions are east, south-east, south and north.
Number 2,5,6,7,and 8 belong to the west group: favourable directions are south-west,west,north-west and north-east.
