NO NON-SENSE FENG SHUI - Aldric Dalumpines - The Freeman

Swimmers do not know it that they are swimming fools all along! Why? Their home pool is bad feng shui. As a consolation this topic applies only to homeowners, condo associations and real estate developers as well as exclusive sports or country clubs with swimming pool.

Let us cut the swim and delve into the lucky designs for pools (by the way this can apply to lagoons, water features in the landscaping indoor or outdoor too):

• Kidney-shaped pool is the best as it embraces a house and like a satellite dish captures good chi from the environs and reroutes it to your home auspiciously like WiFi.

• Optional, but better if a waterfall backflow design is added with water flowing towards the house. It can be a wall-based waterfall or separate stand-alone structure. Untold benefits in terms of cash flows, income generations and career success befall the occupants or owners of this type of swimming pools, personal or corporate.

• A figure 8 pool design connotes double prosperity. One can make the smaller circle the wading pool or jacuzzi.

• A crescent or half-moon pool design is also lucky in this regard so long as it embraces the house or clubhouse.

• Rectangular or square lap pool is an average design for luck, but like the others above can be enhanced greatly for fortune generation by proper positioning on which side of the house or building! In this regard, rooftop pools must be designed delicately with feng shui, lest it will cause financial destruction to condo or regular house owners. Also never design a pool at the center of a house or lot as these affect lung or cardiac health as well as love life.

• A pool encircling a house or building is not good at all. It will only lead to illicit affairs scandalous for the owners. Yes, even tenants or residential owners of a condominium building with such a pool. Or even water feature like a moat. Concubines will be the beneficiaries of this type of swimming pools.

• Best locations to design a pool upon in a property are north, east and southeast. These areas promote material growth in net asset values from any income generating stream!

• An octagon and star-shaped pool are both bad feng shui designs. Along with diamonds, X, cross and knife or butcher cleaver type of designs. One wealthy matron had to undergo seven spinal corrective operations. Upon feng shui inspection, her pool was like a butcher knife with the blade pointed to her master bedroom. It was on her master bed that a showoff home-service masseur stood on her back only to cause slipped discs! Thus seven operations were required.

Mind you, even pools designed for horses should follow these instructions. So do not make a fool of yourself when it comes to swimming pools. A taipan who was a billionaire many times over scoffed at me when told of his pool location, that no matter how small it was it could cause bankruptcy! But lo, on a Good Friday he called begging for help to remedy the movement of the pool as I described, since it was portable. Why? His bank suffered a bank run. With timely remedy it was stopped.

Marriage can be destroyed by an unassuming pool designed in the wrong place. It took 20 years for another taipan to uncover this with feng shui. Whereupon destroying a poorly positioned pool, he and his estranged wife lived together again to the delight and happiness of their children who lived two decades of suffering in a dysfunctional family life.

Just do not forget this lesson: in designing pools never ever make a swimming fool of yourself and others.
