Liu Feng Shui Grand View is a philosophy defining 130 factors that affect who you are. This is the thirteenth article in a series presenting all 130 factors. Please refer to the first article for a complete introduction to this series. Today we will discuss Era.

When examining your grand view feng shui, consider the era in which you were born and raised. Trends, social currents, scientific outlook, and mankind’s accomplishments vary greatly from one era to another. People may have different life experiences depending on if they were born in the 1920's, 1940's, 1960's, 1980's, or during the Millennium.

All of this affects the decisions we make in life.

The available opportunities based on gender also varied from era to era, having a great impact on someone’s personality and view of life. Women born in the 1920's would have hardly been able to imagine the choices that became available to women born in the 1980's.

If you grew up in an era in which it felt safe to bike around the neighborhood with a sense of freedom, you might have a more positive sense of community, society, and confidence than someone who was born and raised in an era in which it was less safe to go anywhere by themselves.

The advancements, difficulties, and societal rules that characterize each decade influence your view of life, your relationships, and the decisions you make. Taking this into consideration increases your understanding, which in the end promotes your life.
