Books for Beginners

Question: Hi there, I've just figure out Feng Shui lately. Right now I don't have any book or documents about Feng Shui. Can you suggest me any good book for beginner? I'd like to know more about it in order to improve my life. Is there any document I can read online?

One good source is the's pages full of feng shui information: Under this URL : " First time here? " 

There are many good books on Feng Shui for the beginner:-

Author: Lillian Too

1. Complete illustrated guide by Lillian Too

2. Basic Feng Shui

Both books have `rich' information on Feng Shui for the beginner. (However, these books are not meant for those who wants to know more about the history of feng shui but rather the practical side of it i.e. Applied Feng Shui. These two books are more on the Shapes and Form School with a dab of the 4 good and 4 bad directions.

If you want to apply Feng Shui immediately, you should get her books.

Author: Eveyln Lip

. Geomancy a Layman's Guide

Her books are all `academic' books i.e. a with a rich history of Feng Shui and some basic information of applied Feng Shui. Her books are more for those doing research into the history of Feng Shui. Doctor Evelyn Lip is a trained architect.

3. Derek Walters

Derek Walters books were written quite sometime back. But his one book titled " Feng Shui" is richly illustrated graphically and makes interesting reading for those who wants to know in general all about Feng Shui. In this book, he also gave a template of a English version of the Chinese Luopan or compass. Although this book cannot meet the new recently published books by authors like Lillian Too, it is a truly beautiful illustrated book. with a balanced look at both the history, understanding of what a dragon hill, and more.

2. His book " The Feng Shui Handbook " gives very good `solid' grounding in the Five Elements concepts and the application of it.

3. If you want instead to apply `9 Star Ki' you can obtain books like `9 Star Ki' by Jon Sandiers which will teach you how to apply the mathematical `side' of Feng Shui to your overall living. By the way `9 Star -Ki' is also Feng Shui but practised widely especially in Japan. (It does not include the Shapes and Form School of Feng Shui)

There are many more new books out each day by different authors. If your local book store has books of Feng Shui, I suggest you do some browsing and you may most likely find some other books not listed here but are equally good or interesting.

Ley Lines

Question: I'm very curious about ley lines, sometimes called dragon currents or dragon lines. How does one measure out the location of these lines inside the house, what are the names of these lines, which ones are lucky and unlucky? Are their any books written about this subject and its relation to feng shui?

If you want to find out more about ley lines in relation to Feng Shui, you will be pleased to know that there is a book called:-

" Amazing Scientific Basis of Feng Shui by Dr. Ong Hean-Tatt Ph. D, Malaysia "

I also have a picture of the cover of the book under this url: Click here

To summarise, his books talks about water dowzing, the stongehenge etc. and the effects of undergound currents affecting homes that has the currents running under them. The members of these households have been studied and found to have higher incidences of cancer!

Hope the above helps!

P.S. A note of " warning ". If you think of buying this book to apply Feng Shui practises, then sorry, this book is not what you want. But if you want to read more on the relationship of Feng Shui to other culture's similarities. You will amaze to find out about sun spots, UFOs and Feng Shui.

Please run (not walk) to the book store to get it.

Rock Element

Question: Terah K Collins book said all rocks and crystals were metal? Is this true as I thought that rocks are of the earth element?

Yes you are correct. Rocks belong to the earth element. Crystals e.g. such as glass belongs to the water element.
