FUNG SHUI FOR WEALTH AND PROSPERITY
What exactly is Fung Shui ? Literally translated, it is just wind (Fung) and water (Shui). Fung Shui is the art / science of living in harmony with our environment, thereby transmuting potentials into achievements. It is about harnessing the energy (chi) around us and made them work in our favour. Many of the things are actually common sense especially when it relates to the ancient time. For instance, the Fung Shui people will tell you about the "sha chi" from sharp edges of furniture and walls. Realistically someone is bound to get hurt due to the sharp edges sooner or later. Another thing is not to sleep under a beam which might cause you to become paralysed. In ancient time, the houses were all wooden and when there were some natural disaster (earthquake and storm), the beam might fall onto the people living in the house. When you were to be under the beam, your chances of getting injured would be quite high. Then there is the saying of never leave your toilet door open. In ancient time, the toilets are normally dirty and smelly due to the problems of sewage removal. Naturally you would want the door to be closed. Therefore many things might not be as relevant today as during the ancient times.
Years ago, the mention of eastern philosophy would make a westerner laugh and think of them as some silly ancient rites / customs. Today, some Fung Shui schools charge their students in US$ and have many foreign (international) students attending these classes. Fung Shui at the moment is available to anyone who is willing to pay for it. Like Kung Fu, previously very few people will have the opportunity to learn Fung Shui as it is only revealed from masters to disciples. Many buildings today are build after consulting Fung Shui Masters. Fung Shui expert are also consulted whenever something bad occurred. Most people know about Master Lillian Too and Grand Master Yap Cheng Hai.
There are many Fung Shui practioners declaring themselves as masters and
giving dubious advices and opinions. It is not easy to differentiate the real
one from the imposter. Some are trying to explain Fung Shui in a scientific
way less the "superstitions". But then there are many things that cannot be
explained in the scientific way. For instance, a mathematic teacher teaches
mathematics and his tools are mere tools to him. To a good Fung Shui master,
his "Lo Pan" is not just a mere tool but probably the same as a Gypsy with
her crystal ball. No doubt a cryctal ball is only a crystal ball as normal
people see nothing in the crystal ball. To a gifted or trained seer, they
are able to enter into another dimension opened to those who possessed the
ability. Such metaphysical /paranormal/ sixth sense and etc are domains of
the trained and gifted professionals. The rests are like the mathematic teacher
and his tools, nothing exceptional. Anybody can be that kind of Fung Shui
master. The real Fung Shui master should be both spiritually and mentally
trained. I sincerely believed that meditation is the epitome of all learnings.
Believe it or not, ancient fighters skilled in martial arts are known to go
into the higher level of meditative training to make themselves invincible. Yogist
and Toaist masters can do impossible acts due to meditative trainings. Many
ancient warriors are known to be one with their sword or weapon and were almost
unbeatable as in Hang Tuah and his "Taming Sari", King Arthur and his Excalibur
As the subject of Fung Shui is too complex for the average person, we will limit ourselves to only the basic.
Yin and Yang are the duality of the universe. The positive and the negative, male and female, good and evil, strong and weak, hard and soft and etc. On the outside they might look like conflicting forces but then they are actually complimentary forces of nature. Without the male there can be no female and vice-versa. Each has its own role to play in the journey of life.
The cosmic trinity consist of heaven (tien), man (ren) and earth (ti). The heaven luck is what we are born with or call it destiny and therefore cannot be changed. Human beings can change their lucks through change of attitude, habits and with the help of Fung Shui. A man 's luck can be change by changing his dwelling by the use of Fung Shui. Therefore, human and earth luck are changeable. Theoricaly, it means about 67% of our luck is changeable provided you get the right person to help you.
There is four main directions ie. North, East, South and West. Chinese compass actually have the needle pointing toward the South (nan) and therefore call "needle pointing south" (zi nan zhen). Chinese directions start from East (tung), South (nan), West (xi) and North (pei). These can be sub-divided into 24 sectors call 24 mountains and used in both advanced Eight Mansion and Flying Stars.
There is five main elements ie. Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water . Wood produces Fire which in turn produces Earth which in turn produces Metal which in turn produces Water which in turn produces Wood. Fire destroy Metal which in turn destroy Wood which in turn destroy Earth which in turn destroy Water which in turn destroy Fire. Any person who is interested in Fung Shui should endeavour to perfect their understanding of the Five Elements. Fire exhaust Wood which in turn exhaust Water which in turn exhaust Metal which in turn exhaust Earth which in turn exhaust Fire.
Elements Production Cycle
Wood --------> Fire ---------> Earth ------------> Metal -----------> Water ------------> Wood
Elements Destruction Cycle
Fire --------> Metal ---------> Wood ---------> Earth --------> Water ----------> Fire
Elements Exhaust Cycle (opposite of the Production Cycle)
Fire --------> Wood---------> Water ---------> Metal --------> Earth ----------> Fire
There is six lines of broken and/or unbroken lines in each of the sixty four hexagram ( --- / - -) in I Ching therefore giving rise to different meanings and interpretations on each of these hexagrams. Every three broken/unbroken lines will form a trigram (refer to 8 trigram below). Two trigram combine together to form a hexagram. As there is 8 trigrams, this will form 64 possibilities and therefore 64 hexagrams. Masters in Fung Shui will need knowledge of I Ching and the 64 hexagrams.
There is 7 days in a week.
There is 8 trigram namely Chien (three unbroken lines) representing the father; Kun (three broken lines) representing the mother; Chen (two broken lines on top of an unbroken line) representing the eldest son; Sun (two unbroken lines on top of a broken line) representing the eldest daughter; Kan (an unbroken line sandwiched by two broken lines) representing the middle son; Li (a broken line sandwiched by two unbroken lines) representing the middle daughter; Ken (an unbroken line on top of two broken lines) representing the youngest son and Tui (a broken line on top of two unbroken line) representing the youngest daughter. I Ching (the book of changes) shows the interactions between these trigrams to get 64 hexagram. We can also consult I Ching for a solution to our problems. This normally done with the aid of 3 coins (ie in ancient times 49 yarrow sticks were used for such purpose). We will have to throw the coins six times with each throw representing a line thus the resulting hexagram. With the aid of I Ching we will be able to interpret the solution. Many years ago, I was working as a supervisor in a local firm. My colleague does not have much to do but he was considered as more efficient than me. I slogged from morning to night and was seldom appreciated. I consulted the I Ching and was advised not to do anything as whatever I say would not be believed by my superiors. Anyway, I went against the advice and thought that if I do not speak out, my superiors would never know what I have done for the company. The I Ching was correct in the prediction and I regretted opening my mouth. The lesson here is, every thing has its time. The timing must be right. There is a time to talk and a time to keep quiet. There is a time to advance with caution; a time to advance as we wish and a time to stand still. It might be the right thing to do but when the timing is wrong, disaster will follow. There is a wise saying "Strategies/ actions depend on man, Success depends on Heaven".
There is nine planets in the universe.

It is possible to change your life. By using Fung Shui, you sit in your good locations and facing good directions. Do not face the Thai Sui (ie. Grand Duke Jupiter in year 2005 is in Rooster facing West). Therefore do not face West in 2005 eventhough it might be your good direction. Do not sit in 5 yellow which happens to be in North West in 2005. The Three Killings in year 2005 is in East (Big Three Killings), North East & South East (Small Three Killings). Those born in the Rabbit year should be extra careful.
As it takes years of studies to perfect the understanding of Fung Shui, what is revealed here hopefully sow the seed for your quest for further Fung Shui knowledge.
