Do you know what it means to be 运气y?
I’ll bet you if you ask 10 different people what it means to be 运气y, you will get 9 or even 10 different answers.
That’s where the problem is. People are expecting a significant boost in their 运气 after a small (or big) change in feng shui. Sometimes, they are expecting their 运气 to take a big turn in the next 24 hours.
This is the reason why feng shui sometimes get a bad reputation. Further, this serves as the basis for “disbelievers” to discredit the application of feng shui. After all, how can simple arrangements in furniture change a person’s 运气? How can sleeping towards one direction improve your 运气?
In this post, I want to clarify the meaning of 运气, so you can have proper expectations from feng shui. To begin, let me give you some cultural background for this term.
Before I get into the details, let me give you a little background about the perspective of life from the Chinese culture and how 运气 fits into it.
- 运气. This is what this blog post is about. It determines how the events of your life unfold. There will be periods of time where 运气 is on your side, and the events happening around you are for your benefit. Other times, you may experience events that may give you constant headaches, worries, and distractions that can carry over to other aspects of your life.
- 风水. This is the third biggest influence on your life. The feng shui of the house greatly influences the mental and physical health of you and your family members. A home with good feng shui relaxes and nurtures your soul and takes away your worries and distractions. Feng shui has the ability to affect your 运气, but has absolutely no influence on your fate.
运气 is not a one-time event. For instance, if you win the lottery, you can very well be 运气y. However, for most lottery winners, it actually 带来的弊大于弊. Rather, 运气 is used to describe a series of events over a period of time, sometimes lasting for several years.
运气 has many aspects. It includes money, wealth, health, relationships, and many others. You can be 运气y in one aspect but not the other.
运气 is not the same for everyone. Some people are 运气y in terms of love, while others in terms of career.
运气通常来来往往。它的时机通常可以在 BaZi的计算 or Zi Wei Dou Shu (Emperor’s Stargate). This is also the reason why 运气 is different for everyone.

With that in mind, let me give you some examples of what I think 运气 is. The stories that follow are open to interpretation, so share your thoughts with me by commenting below.
In general, good 运气 means many aspects of your life are happening the way you want. A better way to describe it is “smooth sailing”，那里没有让您的生活变得复杂的问题或障碍。即使遇到小问题，它们也可以迅速得到解决，而不会升级。
这里 are some aspects of 运气 that you may already be familiar with:
金钱和财富: Generally speaking, money or wealth 运气 is associated with how much money a person can earn. However, it is entirely separate from how much money or wealth a person can hold in his pockets (or bank account).
健康: Even though your daily routine and what you eat has the biggest effect on your health, this aspect of 运气 determines how frequently you get sick and its duration. Being healthy and energetic, by itself, can be considered good 运气.
这里 are two real stories that I see as having “good 运气”:
这是整体变化很大的经典例子“luck”. After he decided to make the move, his 运气 in terms of career, money, and relationship improved significantly.
这里’s another example 做出类似决定，使他将梦想变为现实的人：
Contrary to good 运气, having bad 运气 is when there are many events complicating your life. For instance, right when you’re about to get that promotion at work, unforeseen events required you to relocate to another area, forcing you to give up on that promotion.

这里 are some real life examples of bad 运气 that has happened to those that are close to me. Again, these interpretations are open for discussion, and you can share your thoughts by commenting below.

风水 and 运气 are Separate Entities
通过 now, you should have a good idea of what 运气 is.
As for how 运气 is related to feng shui, here’摘自我的电子书的摘要， 你和你的家很匹配吗？:
“Luck is the general term used to describe all the events that are happening in your life… Feng shui and your 运气 are separate entities. One is the environment and surruoundings, the other is you. Both influence each other to shape your life’s journey.”
The earlier examples you saw about “luck” has little to do with feng shui. They are more about a person’s 运气, which differs from every individual. Usually, a person would experience ups and downs in 运气 throughout his life.
The time and duration of the different aspects of your 运气 can usually be found in your BaZi or Zi Wei Dou Shu calculations (Emperor’s Stargate). If you go to an expert, they can sometimes tell you what types of 运气 are coming in the following years.
In a sense, the types of 运气 that are coming to your life is a pre-determined. However, you have the ability to improve your 运气. And one way to do so, which is under your control, is by improving your 家的风水.
How 风水 Influences Your “Luck”
In short, feng shui has the ability to influence your 运气 in both good and bad ways.
Feng shui has the ability to boost your 运气. For instance, if you had the 运气 to earn one million dollars when you were age 32, good feng shui can amplify your 运气 so you make two million instead of one. On the flip side, bad feng shui decreases your 运气, which may result in you earning half a million instead of one.
Feng shui can trigger your 运气 at an earlier time. Using the same example from earlier, good feng shui can enable you to make half a million when you’re age 31 and the remaining at age 32. On the flip side, bad feng shui may delay your 运气, or worse, completely block it out of your life.
One thing I want to be clear. Though feng shui has the ability to influence your 运气, its effect is usually not immediate.
运气 is used to describe how a series of events unfold. It is used to describe a life with less headaches, distractions, and worries. In the journey of life, good 运气 can be described as “smooth sailing”, whereas bad 运气 is similar to sailing through a storm with the possibility of crashing your ship.
Feng shui has the ability to improve your 运气 or bring 运气 to you at an earlier time. As opposed to fate, feng shui is (often times) completely under your control. How you use it totally depends on you.
