- a pin-board or piece of foam
- a sturdy pin
- a length of cotton or thin string
- a plumb-bob or something heavy to weigh the cotton down
- pencil or pen (with ink that flows out easily)
1. Cut the floor plans all around the edges.
2. Insert the pin through one corner of the plans and let them hang freely.
3. Pin the plans onto the pin-board/foam.
4. Attach the plumb-bob or heavy object (such as a nut) onto the cotton and make a loop at the other end (I used an old fashioned metal baby pin).
5. Hang the cotton/string on the pin:
6. The line will hang down exactly vertical across the plans, now use a ruler and pen to mark the line:
7. Continue to do this all around each corner of the plans:
The green pen marks the plumb lines, the red pen was my guess for the centre, it turned out they were the same:
8. Voila! Now you have the centre!
There are other techniques you can use as well, but this is the simplest and you can really see it's a hands-on technique :-)

Billionaire sells Sydney mansion for $22.5m 'due to bad feng shui'Let's take a look why:
Fig Tree Point is a point of land jutting out into Sydney's Quakers Hat Bay. Directly opposite the point is the location of the house in question:
The spit of land creates what is called in Feng Shui a 'poison arrow.'
Perhaps the Chinese property developer purchased the home with the intention of buying it, but didn't check the satellite image first, or perhaps he forgot to check with his Feng Shui master!
In fact the spit may not be as bad as thought, even though from google it does look serious. It all depends on how clearly it can be seen from the house and how close it is. As we can see there's actually quite a long distance between the house and the spit, and in between is a beautiful bay to capture the qi.
Perhaps the new owners have purchased a bargain...There are yet other factors to consider, such as the age of the house and the compass orientation. Only then can we tell what type of qi is being brought sharply to the site!
It goes to show that it's always better to check the Feng Shui first before you buy :- )

Kisenosato's very public struggle to attain a high rank in sumo is well known in Japan, and his career has been on a forwards-backwards ride since 2004.
He entered sumo training when he finished junior high school, around age 15 and his first tournament was at age 17 and 9 months, the second youngest ever to enter at this age.
Taking a close look at his face we can see two outstanding features to begin with, Of particular importance is the area affecting his career, do you know where it is?
The central forehead is the location of career success and his ability to communicate with seniors. From my own observations in face reading and the study of Chinese Astrology (Bazi/Four Pillars), this area relates to 'resource', the element that generates the daymaster.
In checking his biography in wikipedia, Kisenosato was encouraged to be a sumo wrestler as a teenager, by a man who would be his trainer for many years. In line with Japanese tradition, he respected his master, but he was also given a public scolding by his master who said he was 'difficult.'
In his Four Pillars, Kisenosato is daymaster yang earth (Wu) born in the month of the horse (Wu). His fire element is the usful element in his chart, which is his resource element and indicates that particularly between ages 11 1/2 to 31 1/2 he has good resources. However it is yang fire which is 'unbecoming resource' - it can make him rebellious towards authority (amongst other things), and this is confirmed by his life situations and also by the mark on his forehead.
The question is: will he win today? Today is a renzi day in the Chinese calendar (yang water rat). Fire is favourable in Kisenosato's chart, but that doesn't necessarily mean water is unfavourable. looking at his life path, he has achieved success when fire is strongest in years or in his luck pillars and metal is not useful in his chart, which means that water is useful...and represents his wealth element. He does not have such a great wealth element in his face (find out why at my upcoming face reading course on the Gold Coast, Queensland).
....now it is the next day and I am pleased to report that he did win the tournament once again! In this result it is another way to confirm that fire is useful in his chart, because this is the dingyou (yin fire rooster) year. Fire is the stem and rooster is the branch. The stem is our 'action.' The branch is the foundation, but they are in conflict elementally, which are the same two stem and branch combination that he grew up with (check his Luck Pillars).
In this Japan Times interview, Kisenosato said, "“I’m speechless,” Kisenosato said. “There was something at work that was more than my own strength. My only thoughts were on concentrating and executing.”
Even he is amazed at his win, but we who study metaphysics can give explanations!
Obviously a lucky but tumultuous time in his life, bringing great conflict and achievement, helping him to win the 'Fighting Spirit' award when he was younger.
On that topic, he also has what is called 'Phoenix Eyes' in face reading...these are the same eyes as the famous character from Three Kingdoms Period, Guan Yu (or Kuan Kong):
"The silkworm eyebrows stood up fiercely and the red phoenix eyes glared as, sword in hand he rode hastily forth to cut down the audacious Prime Minister for his impertinence." Romance of the Three Kingdoms by Luo Guanzhong (Chapter 20).
|Guanyu / Kuan Kong|
If you are looking for a woman with phoenix eyes:
Looking into the future, this is most certainly the peak period of Kisenosato's life, and whether he goes into life as a senior official in sumo remains to be seen, but it is his intended career to be a coach/trainer for other sumo fighters in the future.
Congratulations Kisenosato, what an exciting bout yesterday!
