Fengshui

Geography is the theoretical basis of FengShui

It was mentioned in I Ching, the book of changes, “Raise your head for astronomy and look downwards for geography”, Fengshui is derived from observing geography. It can be also said that in ancient China, geography is an important foundation of the Fengshui theory. Basic Fengshui geography is reflected in five areas: topographical maps, hydrology, climate, meteorology, soil and prospecting.

When Fengshui masters audit for Fengshui, they usually bring along with them a map as a tool, and use it to draft up a Fengshui map, to represent the Dragon vein thought theory, the relationship between the Star and the terrain surrounding the grave or geographical environment and the urban environment. The most famous Fengshui map is “China 3 biggest Dragon Stems” map.

In Fengshui, it is said that all the “mountain veins” come from the source of KunLun Mountain in China, and of these, the 3 main “mountain veins” are found within China. There are main mountain veins and branches of the mountain veins, in Fengshui theory, they are the “Dragon Stem” and “Dragon Branch”, and within China, there lies the 3 biggest main “Mountain veins” and they are China 3 big “Dragon Stems”. The 3 “Dragon Stems” are the boundaries of South China Sea, Yangtze River, Yellow River and Yalu River. Wherein, the “North Dragon Stem” passed by the Yin Mountain, Helan Mountain, and from Beijing into the sea, it’s “Dragon Branch” is Hengshan, Taihang and Yanshan. The central “Dragon Stem” passed through Sichuan into the central plains, and finally ended up in the sea, and its “Dragon Branch” is ZhongnanShan, HuaShan, Taishan and Songshan. The southern “Dragon Stem” passed through Yunnan, into Hunan. and its “Dragon Branch” is WulingShan, HengShan, Lushan and Tianmu mountain.

The water theory in Fengshui study includes the hydrology water system, underground water system and quality.

The Sunlight and Wind theory in Fengshui study is mainly about the climate and meteorological knowledge. When Fengshui Masters select locations, they will note
the hidden wind and wind blocking locations, it is to avoid the cold wind, and not the warm wind, to create a small comfortable and warm environment. When people are selecting houses, they usually choose houses that sits in north and facing south, this is the manifestation from this theory.

life and fate

Factors which affect Life and Fate

Fate includes two meanings. The first is life, and that is, by the date and time of birth permutations that reflect good and bad fortune. Second is Luck, at every stage of a person’s life, traversed by a combination of Luck, constitutes the different life and luck of a person. So what are the factors affecting the life and fate of a person?

Feng Shui

Feng Shui can affect a person’s degree of wealth and rank, if you have the wealth in your life, Feng Shui can make you wealthier, such as from a few million into tens of millions. These things carry messages in synchronization, for a person in bad luck, you are able to tell from his birth chart, Feng Shui and Name. We will never be able to see a person in bad luck with a good Feng Shui phenomenon, and in other words, if a person is lucky, they often are able to find a good Feng Shui place of a residence.

Social and Environment

Here it refers to the different locations in the same Era.For example, for the same official luck in birth chart, the person may become an official in China but, in other democratic countries, this person could be a manager of an enterprise. Wealth luck in the birth chart, if you are living in the city, it could mean that you have more wealth and if you are living in the country, it could mean that you may harvest a few more bags when compared to others.

Era

The same person, born thousands of years ago in ancient times, or born today, or even after thousands of years in the future, there is a difference in fate. There is also a huge difference, even if its only a difference in a few years. For example, in ancient society, if there are a few storeys within a house, it could be one of the best architecture building, but in modern society, it could be a common architecture building. Therefore, when analysing on life and fate, it should not be separated from the Era, and the same birth chart in different Eras have different fate.

Birth Chart

The year, month, day and time of birth together form the birth chart, Bazi of a person. Bazi is based on the relationship between the Day Master and the other heavenly stems and earthly branches within the four pillars, combined with the controlling or producing relationships with decade luck and yearly luck. At the same time, reference to other various factors like God Killings, to predict the circumstances of life. The year, month, day and time of Birth reflect the base of the fate of a person’s life.

Name

The Name has hidden influencing information, which can influence the personality, health, marriage, wealth and career luck of a person. Life is made from the heaven and unfortunately, we are not able to change it; Name can determine good and bad luck, and it is man-made. Having a good name is a treasure and a good name will bring good luck.

Do good and accumulate merit

A person doing good and an evil person both have a disaster, and the good man could be having a minor illness, while the evil person will have a serious illness; Doing good may not resolve all the disasters, but it can reduce disasters to the minimum, and can increase good fortune.

Working hard

There are many ways of working hard, keep a good attitude in daily life. Choose clothings with favourable colours, or accessories or choose to develop in favourable location and use more of favourable numbers. Choose the person whose birth chart consists of your favourable elements as your spouse.

Feng Shui Space

Feng Shui Space Factor

With the advancement of technology, there is now a huge difference, in terms of shape and materials, between modern architecture and ancient architecture. The problems that may require more attention in the conventional buildings may no longer exists in modern days buildings and the things that do not need explanation in the past may now be required as they could now be the key to success. That is why we need to understand Feng Shui Space from its roots.

1) Understanding Feng Shui Space Knowledge

1. Selection according to Space

In ancient times, The choice of space in general, by Feng Shui Masters, is based on the flow of water, identifying the source and the destination of the water, including the flow and the space the water covers, to make necessary arrangements. This is combined with the characteristics of the terrain, changes in wind direction and related factors, light and changes of the seasons, in the path of the flowing water as one of the basis of space selection.

2. The Climate Environment within the Space

The climate is not the same in different directions. For example, in China, the wind usually comes from Northwest in the Winter and Southeast in the Summer. Geographically, whether in North or South, combined with the climate, the facing of the entrance of the house is also different. This indicates that the climate environment is also an important factor of Feng Shui.

3. Geomorphological Characteristics

The landscape is a result of a variety of environmental movement. Therefore, topography identification can aid and distinguish Feng Shui, with a more comprehensive grasp of the featured space and build a successful Feng Shui space.

2) Difference in spatial factors in different Era

The desire of people to attract good luck and drive away bad luck will not change as time progress, but the difference in the time will bring about huge difference in Feng Shui Geomancy. In the past, people often pay more attention to the temperature when selecting houses, but with air conditioning in modern days, this factor is now ignored. In the past, living in a noisy environment have adverse effect on the people, but now with modern insulation materials, this factor is also being ignored. The same goes for those factors that are not being considered in the past are not an important factors to consider. For example, you have selected a location that is not able to bring in any electricity. That is why there is huge difference in Feng Shui space as time progress.

3) Identifying the water factor is the breakthrough point of Feng Shui

As mentioned in the above paragraphs, space is selected on the basis of the direction of flowing water. Through this, we can set the space and layout the five elements and direction of facing. We can only divide the space into 9 equal squares after determining the sitting direction. Therefore, understanding the direction of flowing water is the breakthrough point of the Feng Shui. It is also the cornerstone of Feng Shui.

In both Wei and Jin Dynasties, Guo Pu extraction the Feng Shui phase from the “burial book”, and this gave a definition to Feng Shui and also gave Feng Shui a framework of a comprehensive theory. He is now known as the originator of Feng Shui.

Tang Dynasty is a rare prosperous period in Chinese history, and a variety of academic had stimulated the Feng Shui theory system, which gradually improved. Yang Yun Song of Jiangxi School, practiced Feng Shui for the people and accepted apprentices, thus played the role in the promotion of Feng Shui.

In modern times, Chen Tuan, Shao Kang Jie, Zhu Xi and Can Yuan Ding researched and gave various interpretation and identification to Feng Shui. Some of their theories were published into Feng Shui books, and this shaped the main faction of Feng Shui theories.

During the Ming and Qing dynasties, Feng Shui theory had been quite complete due to the research and collection of various types of Feng Shui information by the scholars.

The activities of Feng Shui masters have shifted from the Imperial Palace to fields of urban and rural homes, from the Republic to the present. Scholars have now re-evaluation and research the traditional cultural of Feng Shui.
