Successful Commercial FengShui Without A Door

The easiest way to proof that any FengShui method which bring immediate result is through commercial FengShui where the bottom line is money. A newly opened Mall in the Klang Valley, shared the similar constrain with the other Mall facing the Highways (Details read HERE). Designed as a “Soft-Deconstructivist” fashion, none of the main doors are straight. Possible of a work of Door Tilting SanYuan master? 

Many of their entrances are poorly FengShui designed. The internal Qi map is confusing. The question is what happened if someone would to come to you and seek your expertise to make sure that his outlet makes money? 

The layout posed a nightmare for SanHe practitioners. Two or more water exits with confused Qi map. Tug right at where Qi ends, SanYuan water method is most preferred. Opened as the same date with the opening of the Mall, the outlet was one of the best within its level with people queuing in bee-lines for their orders. 

Where its neighbors have no business, this very shop outshines everyone. Can you believe that? There is physically no door to tilt and come to think of it would XuanKong DaGua be the superior SanYuan method to use? Not really. 

On the day of opening, the orders were so much overloaded that the chief cook went missing in action (MIA) for an hour. Good business only for one shop always court envy from its neighbors. Subsequently, whimsical complains start ranging from the smoke of the stove jeopardizing neighbor’s business, the height of the fridge is too tall blocking neighbor’s signage and worse of the lots, because of this very shop selling Soya Bean milk, the specialized soya bean neighbor has no business. You can imagine all the lame complains that comes in, just because this shop has been FengShui(ed). 

We are proud to be associated with the success story of young entrepreneurs. When the shop you have FengShui(ed) managed to captivates so many customers while the neighbors are suffering from the lack of it, it just proved that your FengShui method works. 

When SanHe methods require the location of the door and SanYuan methods require the facing of the door to work, what happened if there is really no door to work with in the first place? What happened if your shop is tugged right at the end of the corridor would you able to receive Qi? 

We are constantly being amazed by this art and its simplicity of its application. You really do not need a Dragon Spot to enjoy good FengShui.

Validity of QianKun GuoBao 乾坤國寶

QianKun GuoBao (乾坤國寶) or by another name LongMen BaJu (龍門八局) is a middle heaven water method (中天水法) which is defined by the confluence of two rivers where water is deemed to have exited the middle heaven Gua (中天). This middle heaven position must not violate the Early and Later Heaven (先後天). In practice, it is mainly apply in the flatland conditions (平龍) where mountain source Qi is difficult to locate. 

The applications rest within the ability of the practitioner to NaShui (納水) and ShouShui (受水). In fact, this method is not only formula based but a landform solution to SanYuan School. Both SanYuan and SanHe schools shared the same landform fundamentals. The so called middle heaven Gua (中天) is equivalent to landform water mouth (水口). 

There is a landform principle to determine the host water dragon (主水龍) and the guest water dragon (客水龍). Failing to do so will result in the “husband marrying someone else’s wife”. Thus, one is not able to Shou ShengQi (受生氣). Strangely, 3 out of the 8 formations, namely Qian, Kan and Li violated such landform fundamentals. 

SanHe School is proud of their 12 ChangSheng water method (12長生水法). Based on this method, it derives the 4 major water mouths (4大水口). From these 4, it multiplies into YinYang 8 Gua.  

SanYuan School is proud of their HeTu GuaQi water method (河圖卦氣水法). It matches Dragon (龍) with Sitting (坐), Water (水) with Facing (向) to Chang ShengQi (藏生氣). From the 2 slices to the 4 imageries and the 8 Gua, to connect the dots right up to its original state. So a Sitting Gua (坐卦) is of paramount important. 

Although SanHe and SanYuan are two mainstream schools, they share the same forefather – Great Grandmaster Yang. So to receive good incoming water and to exit at weakening Qi sectors are of the main priority. Strangely, most of the the 12 ChangSheng water method (12長生水法) does not match middle heaven water method (中天水法). 3 out of the 32 configurations only, Dui and Zhen in a fire formation, Gen in a wood formation conforms to both systems and it is not a good indicator as well.

Hari Malaysia Yesterday

2 Years ago, we audited a wooden house, while most Malaysian enjoying the Sept 16 Malaysia Day holidays (detail read HERE). 2 years down the road, the owner prospered. He replaced the existing wooden structure with a permanent detached house (Bungalow). A number of subtle FengShui structure has been installed since ground breaking. Strangely, we do not need to set any Xue, align any door and place anything. Everything strangely seems to be in proper place. Is there an invisible force at play?

YiJing BaGua – A Novel Idea

Thought that there is a new fundamental in the market. Close scrutiny, just another gimmick out of the goody bags. In other words, garnishing the stale plate. What exactly is this YiJing BaGua? 

To understand it one has to look at the left diagram attached. This is a Later Heaven 8 Trigram (LHBG). To explain why such arrangement is done that way, one postulation is to look at the solar path view from the earth in the Qi sequence of 12 growth phases, shortened to 8 phases. 

Starts from Zhen trigram, wood Qi denotes Grow because the sun rises in the east. It gradually achieves Youth at the Xun trigram just as a tree grows into bushes in spring. When the Sun achieves maximum Yang, the summer heat scotches wood and result in bush fire at Li trigram. This fire Qi peaks into Prosperous phase. Yin is born and a downward cycle begins at Kun trigram where everything goes back to mother earth in a Weakening stage. Beneath earth, metal does form at the trigram Dui where the chilly autumn winds wither leaves making trees barren and surface of the earth morbid resemble the stage of Death. The trigram Qian, metal takes the form of reorganization waiting for the season to pass. It is the stage of Grave where ingredients of Life is at its dormancy, waiting to be reborn. Metal attracts water in the trigram Kan. The very life source, water is at its stage of Extinction in absolute Yin. Winter cold insult the Sun but it is also the cradle of Yang. It is a point of an upward cycle. By itself it cannot grow. It requires a medium which is earth in trigram Gen for supporting the root. With the ingredient of water and earth, it requires the Sun for life ignition. Therefore earth is in the stage of Conceive, an embryo ready to take another life form in spring. LHBG is perfectly explained in the context of 12 growth phases in its YinYang cycle, an epitome of SanHe’s postulation of Qi. 

SanYuan look at Qi at a different perspective. This school does not look at the Sun as a predominant factor; instead it looks at the stars (solid) and space (void) to determine its reference point. It uses HeTu Qi instead. HeTu indicates the 4 enclosures. It has to morph into LoShu to give elemental meanings to the trigrams. Therefore, the fundamental of SanYuan sub systems liked DaGua, derived GuaQi from the amalgamation of EHBG with LoShu with each numeral takes HeTu Qi instead. That is where, Qian 9 takes metal, Kan 7 takes fire and the sorts.  

The proprietor of YiJing BaGua is trying to equate a SanHe fundamental into a SanYuan model. That is where he proposes: - Qian:Fire, Kun:Water, Kan:Metal, Li:Wood, Gen:Metal, Dui:Wood, Zhen:Earth and Xun:Earth. HeTu Qi does not indicate earth Qi. It is a big mistake to equate such earth Qi with heaven Qi. They are totally different things. 

 By the same token, if you look at the diagram side by side, you will notice that giving a new elements to the trigrams are liked reading the trigrams in its Early Heaven positions liked early heaven of Qian is in Li, Kun is in Kan and so forth. So, there is really nothing extraordinary to such postulations. 

If such YiJing BaGua is used to read the so called FeiXing chart, let say, #1-4 conjunctions, the normal reading would be Kan over Xun, water growing into wood. However, it would be the same in the YiJing FlyingStar, #1-4 is actually Kun over Dui, water growing into wood also. So, it is fundamentally flawed. 

Even within the XuanKong subsystem, one cannot equate DaGua with FeiXing and postulate that DaGua is the principle and FeiXing is the applications. These are two different sub systems based on different fundamentals. DaGua is derived from Early Heaven Trigram whereas FeiXing is derived from Later Heaven Trigram. They are entirely different species. 

Between Early Heaven and Later Heaven, there is a bridge. A workable FengShui method, be it SanHe or SanYuan is to enable the bridge to be in place. The question is what form does this bridge take place?

How Do You Know Your FengShui Works?

When you have a vacant shop at a lousy location and you had wanted to let it go for almost 8 miserable years, there is no taker. You put a “horse” and out of the blue, someone made an offer and the deal is seal!  

That is how it works. Pretty cool?
