We’ve heard of the phrase- burning the midnight oil. According to Feng Shui what is the ideal time for a productive study session? Early morning or late at night?
[Jill Lander] Early morning for a young child is preferable, for children older than-the age of 14, evening time may be more beneficial, but lights out should be no later than 11pm. As this is when the water element takes over and can be counter productive for the mind’s energy causing disturbed sleep patterns.
Jill, what is the KUA formula? How does one use it to determine the right study directions?
[Jill Lander]The Kua formula based on the gender and year of birth is used to determine certain personal directions for various aspects of our lives such as health – social interactions and development. The correct name for the study direction is the FuWEi direction. Try to let your child face his/her FuWei direction when studying.
The calculation to determine a child’s FuWei direction is as follows:-
For GIRLS born on or after 2000 add the last two numbers of the birth year then reduce to a single digit then add six, this will give you the child’s personal direction.
For BOYS born on or after 2000 add the last two numbers of the birth year then reduce to a single digit and deduct from nine this will give you the child’s personal directions.
For ease I have formulated all Kua directions for yourreaders: -
GIRLS 2000 (STUDY) FuWei Direction = NORTHWEST
BOYS 2000 (STUDY) FuWei Direction = SOUTH
2001 = WEST 2001 = NORTHEAST
2002 = NORTHEAST 2002 = WEST
2003 = NORTHWEST 2003 = SOUTH
2004 = SOUTHWEST 2004 = NORTH
2005 = SOUTHEAST 2005 = SOUTHWEST
2006 = EAST 2006= EAST
2007 = SOUTHWEST 2007 = SOUTHEAST
2008 = NORTH 2008 = SOUTHWEST
2009 = NORTHWEST 2009 = SOUTH
2010 = WEST 2010 = NORTHEAST
2011 = NORTHEAST 2011 = WEST
2012 = SOUTH 2012 = NORTHWEST
2013 = NORTH 2013 = SOUTHWEST
2014 = SOUTHWEST 2014 = SOUTHEAST
2015 = EAST 2015 =EAST
2016 = SOUTHEAST 2016 = SOUTHWEST
Does re-arranging furniture when you are stuck in a rut while studying help to stimulate surrounding Chi?
[Jill Lander] It can yes, but it has more limitations than changing furniture in other areas of the home to stimulate energy flow, as it remains important to stay within the parameters of incorporating the FuWei direction. It may be more beneficial to change colors or artwork and arrange other furniture items such as cupboards or book shelves for instance.
Thank you, Jill, for this has been a most enlightening exchange. We all know that happy and well-adjusted children make a home complete.
