Maximizing Potential with Classical Feng Shui
Classical Feng Shui relies on assessing directional energy, which is the flow of energy to a home or space. This directional energy indicates the quality of the energy at a site. The tool used to determine this directional energy is called a Luo Pan. This is a complex, sensitive compass and is considered to be the most essential instrument in a Classical Feng Shui practice. Knowing how energy flows inside and outside a space is key!

Using Eight Mansions to Boost Your Home's Success Chi
Eight Mansions is a personalized form of feng shui that relies on dates and your gender to find your personal feng shui. You can calculate your personal directions for success, love and health – and your misfortune directions.

While these can be calculated for your personal feng shui based on your gender and date of birth, you can also determine personal feng shui for your house, too.

Final Thoughts - What is a Luo Pan?  

The Luo Pan is the Chinese compass or Feng Shui compass, a complex and beautiful instrument used to measure directional energy. It is the quintessential and most complex tool of a classical Feng Shui practitioner.

The Chinese compass, also known as “The Universe on a Plate”, is a square wooden base with a rotating metal disc with 5 to 42 rings, a needle magnetized to the North, and 2 red nylon strings which cross in 90* angles and give a precise compass reading. The square part represents the Earth and the round one the Heaven.
