Here I try to address some of the misconceptions about Yin Feng Shui or sometimes known as Ancestral Feng Shui or Graveyard Feng Shui.
This type of feng shui is the least accepted in the Western Culture due to lack of understanding and misconception brought about by some self taught “masters”.
1.Feng Shui can have different effects for different family members.
The first thing to note is that the influence of ancestral feng shui on future generations of men and women is different. I have come into contact with such an example: One family, three generations are good daughters, not only can marry a good husband, his own development in all aspects is also good, his children are also good; and each generation of son, is only mediocre, There wasn’t much to say, and most of them were short lived. They all lived to be 60 years old. In the end, I decided that the problems in his family were on the ancestral graves. The result of the field survey was also the same.
The southeastern side of his ancestral ancestral home is far away from a beautiful mountain peak, soothing sentimental in shape; while in the east, it is facing the canyon and the eastern part of the burial ground collapsed. In the southeast position, that is the Xun 巽 sector, represents the eldest daughter and in the East sector that belongs to the Zhen Gua 震 corresponds to the eldest son of the family.
2. The Impact on each “family” is not the same
The influence of feng shui of ancestral graves on sons is also different. Generally speaking, the effect on the eldest is not the same as on the second and fifth, and on the third and sixth. And so on. This is determined by the classification of family members.
The professional tool for investigating the Yin-fengshui feng shui, the Luopan or the Chinese Geomancy compass, divides the direction of the plane 360 degrees into twenty-four directions, and we group them calling it “a three-in-one mountain”. For example, 庚酉辛 belongs to the West. West represents the youngest daughter.
Therefore, some ancestral graves are favourable for the eldest son family, they may not be favourable for the second family and so on. There are many reasons for this. Some are deliberate (by design) while others may be due to surrounding land formations that naturally favour certain family.
I have come into contact with such a case: There is a family, the eldest son had a dumb daughter, his son had a nephew and grandson; and the second child has very good children.
3.Outsiders paying respect to deceased can “steal” their Feng Shui.
Some old Chinese still follow the old tradition that daughters are married off children thus are not allowed to pay their respect to their parents or grand parents. The reason is that they believe that by praying to the ancestors the good fortune of the grave will be “taken” by them.
However this is not true. It’s just some superstitious believe because if this is true, I will be praying to the rich man’s ancestor grave and thus I can also be rich while the rich descendants will be poor. We know this does not happen. Their descendants remains rich till today.
Every descendants inherited the DNA from their ancestors. Thus outsiders like me cannot benefit from the good feng shui of the grave for the simple reason I do not have their DNA.
4. The impact on the fortunes of future generations is manifested in various aspects.
Specifically, the influence of ancestral (Yin) Feng shui on children almost covers all aspects of life, such as people’s most concerned about wealth, marriage, children, health, authority, etc., in particular, the effects are obvious.
If the ancestral graves were built in the widowhood, the marriage of the children would be greatly affected. Before, I once dealt with such a case: There are family members and both sons are in their thirties, but they have never been married. The old man is very anxious. I surveyed the ancestral graves of his family and discovered that they were in a widowhood and chose to relocate the graves for his family. Less than a year after the graves were relocated, the two wives entered the door.
The number of children and whether or not their children have any interest can be predicted from the ancestral graves. Sometimes a BaZi or destiny charts shows but some how the couple cannot bear child and this has to do with the ancestors grave. The problem can come from the husband or the wife side of the ancestor grave.
iii, health, longevity
The quality of the child’s body and the length of his life are also reflected in the feng shui of the graves.
The influence of ancestral feng shui on children and health has been mentioned above. There is not much of repetition here.
iv, wealth and prosperity
The quality of a person’s life depends on his birthday. But feng shui can change his fortunes. For example, if this person is destined to be a millionaire, generally speaking, he will not be poor, but how much money will he have in the future? The feng shui of the yin house can only allow him to have one million, and it can also allow him to reach 9.99 million. In this range, feng shui can play a role because there are other influencing factors. One of it is our Bazi or destiny chart.
v, authority and promotion
The ability for one person to rise in authority can also be attributed to Yin Feng Shui. In Malaysia we have many such cases, perhaps Malaysia is blessed with many good Feng Shui masters. However they are not famous. The recent event in the Malaysia political scene as seen one such case. When my friend took me to audit the ancestor grave of that person, I knew he will rise to the top and indeed he did.
I have also another article on this that happened in Taiwan.
