Ask Feng Shui Master: How to Hang Your Horseshoe for Best Luck?

  • Ask Lada: This is a very sweet question, and I decided it was a great idea to answer it for everyone’s benefit.

paleohippy What I really need to know is if you hang a horse shoe on the wall, should it be up/open to hold the luck or down/open to let the luck spill out. Serious Fung Shui master practitioners need only reply :).

FIRST, A WORD ABOUT FENG SHUI

We usually spell it as Feng Shui: this is Mandarin pronunciation, as spoken on mainland, such as Beijing. However, Fung Sui (Fung Shui) is also acceptable, although not really known in the West. Fung Sui is Cantonese pronunciation, as spoken in Hong Kong.

Feng means ‘wind.’ The combo Feng Shui means wind-water.  In the ancient metaphorically poetic way, it symbolizes the expression of two kinds of fluid and ever-changing energy, or Chi, of our planet and everything on it. If you harness that Chi correctly, based on the wisdom of the ages, based on science, with due respect and creativity, you will get the result, manifest as harmony between your inner and outer worlds.

Lada Ray’s definition of Feng Shui in 5D:

The harmonization of your inner energy with that of your surrounding environment, taking into account the flow of both seen and unseen energies. 

‘Good Feng Shui signifies perfect alignment between inner and outer worlds.’ Lada Ray

Incidentally, those who read my novel THE EARTH SHIFTER, and/or those who know some in-depth ancient schools of feng shui, not usually taught today, will know about the three layers of existence, corresponding with three types of energy and three types of luck:

heavenly – mankind – earthly

Why is this important? You’ll see below.

 

HOW TO BEST HANG YOUR HORSESHOE: FACING UP OR DOWN?

Believe it or not, both ways are equally good and auspicious. Hanging the horseshoe facing up is more of a Western and Russian way, although I’ve seen it done both ways in Europe. Hung with its opening facing up, the horseshoe collects the HEAVEN LUCK, falling from the sky, so to speak. It acts like a purse, gathering it inside and holding it in for you to tap into every time you open or close your front door, or every time you go by. Such as here:

This second example is a traditional Russian horseshoe, hand-carved out of birch bark. The inscription in ancient Rus script reads, ‘FOR LUCK’ :

horseshoe-russian-birch-bark-for-happiness

And this decorative Spanish horseshoe is inverted to look down:

When the horseshoe is inverted to look down, it capitalizes most on EARTHLY LUCK. It acts as a magnet, pulling the surrounding earthly luck up into it. Then, when you open your door, it spills the luck to your doorstep. In other words, it acts as a constant supplier of luck, into which you step and bring with you every time you go in or out.

Incidentally, the horseshoe should best be hung on your front door, although some do hang it on the wall or above windows, as well.

Chinese usually hang the horseshoe facing down, which is the earthly-luck way of doing it – it is the Feng Shui way.

As you see, when it comes to the benevolent horseshoe, you really can’t go wrong!

Horses are considered one of the luckiest animals, and symbols of many good things: from victory to luck and wealth, from freedom to yang energy and great accomplishment.

To me, hanging a horseshoe, associated with the lucky horse, is one of the most charming customs spanning many world cultures. Enjoy!

  2. I have a horseshoe from my dad’s ranch and it travels with me to wherever I live. It is good luck for me as it brings my father’s spirit with it. A great post, Lada.

  3. Well, I spent a lot of quality time in Hong Kong back in the day and I guess that’s why I spelled it ‘fung’… Yes, quality time in the Wan Chai District :). Thanks so much for this lesson. My response will be to get another horseshoe from my neighbor and do one up in the East and one down in the West. Sideways, 1Earth, will result in loss of ‘equinity’ :).
