One yin one yang is the make up of Dao 一阴一阳为之道
There is a saying in Yi Jing but what exactly is it trying to tell us. What this thousand of years ancient verse is trying to tell?
This verse is to say that everything in this world is born from the marriage of a Yin and Yang component. This has been proven by science later that a sperm from a male after “marrying” with an egg from the female gives birth to a being, may it be human, dog, cat, fish, bird etc.
Thus the this law of heaven is also known as Dao 道 to the Chinese specifies there is always the police and there will always be a thief. There is an honest man there is also a con man. When there is a cruel man, there exists also a kind man or for every poison, there is also a medicine to it. There is a beautiful lady, there is also the ugly person. This is the law of Yin – Yang within the Dao.
A business owner came to me some months ago in Kuala Lumpur. Her business was down for some years after having a feng shui job done by a famous master. The first year was alright but then later the business slowly went down hill. Feeling some is not right, she did her research and found me.
She is correct, feng shui outcome is a trend, if done correctly it should not show a down trend unless it’s a human issue but in her case, it is not.
When I went to her shop, it was quiet but she told me it was not like this in the beginning since she has been operating her business here for more than 15 years. It was after the feng shui changes it went slow and despite all the expensive feng shui “cures”, things did not improved. What went wrong ? Are cures a workable feng shui solution?
The Feng Shui Hand
This was a premise sitting East facing West close to North West. The cashier was beside the door on the White Tiger side and out side in front was a vast piece of empty land. Thus it is said to have a good ming tang (clear frontage). But same time last two years there was some construction work on going that was soon blocking off the wide area. Many friends speculated it is due to the new building that caused the business slow down.
After studying her land formations and facing, I decided I can do some adjustment to the cashier position. I consider this a fortunate case that something is still doable or that can be rectified without having to move out. Thus by matching the Earth & Man factor, I hope to turn around her stagnant business and revive her once promising business.
A True Sheng Ji Effects
THE DRAGON’S QI
Dragon’s Qi is believed to have the ability to alter a person’s destiny over time. Precisely why it is called a Dragon’s qi is because Dragon is an celestial animal that stays in heaven. Thus a dragon is a symbol of heaven’s representation. Thus why in ancient China only the Emperor are allowed to use the dragon symbol . This is because Emperor is the viewed as the Mandate of Heaven and dragon is used to represent the symbol of power mandated given by heaven.
However this same term, Dragon is also used in Feng Shui to denote the movement of the mountains that carry the Qi or energy, hence is also known as the Dragon’s Qi or Dragon’s Breath.
A mother was rather apprehensive of her daughter’s weak body. After the first miscarriage, the daughter was rather sad and depressed. This has affected her marriage and her relationship with her husband and in-laws.
THE SHENG JI PLANTING
The mother came to seek my advice and I told her she can give Sheng Ji a try.
The Sheng ji was designed according to traditional method as taught by our grand masters. An auspicious date 吉日
was selected to erect the tombstone 墓碑. The tombstone is important because without a tombstone the effect is not as strong as the one with a well feng shui and aligned tombstone.
Having a tombstone is rather important as it serves as the External Qi collector. Without a tombstone, the only Qi it receives is the Internal Qi. When both Internal and External Qi is harmonized, only the Sheng Ji can produce better results.
Slowly over the months, things started to change for her. Starting from her relationship with the husband, then the in-laws and followed by the pregnancy. However, this is not yet the climax of the story.
Today I will share one case on how Xuan Kong Liu Fa is applied onto a grave. I believe it is the first in English language. I have not seen any other that has shared in public how the Liu Fa method is applied onto graves or Yin Feng Shui written in English.
Note: You may want to read the preceding Xuan Kong Liu Fa articles to better understand Liu Fa method first.
This is a grave that was located in an old public cemetery. It belongs my friend’s grand father who passed away in 1977. In Liufa terms, this is a period 7 grave. Period 7 is between the year of 1975 to 1995 and Period 8 continues right till 2016. However both Period 7 and Period 8 belongs to the Lower cycle.
This grave sits on Chen face Xu, 辰山戌向 and you may also see the landform topography in the below photo.
The Land Formation 巒頭
The land formation is good with a clear & strong incoming dragon protected by 2 embracements. This formation fulfills the criteria of Xuan Kong, Jin Long and Ci Xiong.
所以陰陽無不配，雌雄無不合，不配與不合，即謂之相乘 – tells us that land formations must match to have good results.
Although this site does not have a table mountain, so long it fulfills the 6 methods, table mountain is not of significant importance.
The stream flows from left to right, crossing the Ming Tang 明堂, going out at the meeting of stream and main river coming from the Right flowing in a sentimental way towards the sector of Xin 辛.
Someone asked me about the effects of feng shui master helping others will shoulder bad karma of their clients since we are helping them it is like intervening with the law of heaven.
The Law of Duality
Before I go deeper into this subject, I think we first have to understand the nature of this universe. There are always the Yin and Yang part of life as what the I Ching has said thousands of years ago. There will always be a constant struggle between the good and the bad forces. You have the police and you have the terrorist. Within the police force there are bad police personal and same within the terrorist organization there are “kind” terrorists. There are also good feng shui masters and fake masters. The fake masters are the karmic debt collectors.
In contrary I think, people who finally engaged good feng shui masters are indeed have accumulated good karmic deeds that heaven has pointed them to the right path. Those who have constantly met poor feng shui masters are either in a bad luck cycle or have karmic debt, thus their “punishment” is to engage poor or fake masters to suffer the feng shui bad effects and loss of wealth.
Determining Facing is one the most difficult process for many feng shui practitioner. It is also one of the important steps in Feng shui audit of any building especially commercial units and high rise units. Landed houses are still in my opinion relatively an easy task.
What makes matter worse is that today’s architects are coming out with creative building designs that makes our job ever harder as a Feng Shui Consultant. Unfortunately, we cannot skip this step too.
We have no choice but to bite the bullet and find out the facing of the building in order to know the facing direction of that building. We have to be very careful at this step. If we do it wrong, then the whole analysis will be flawed and risk our client’s future unless one is just doing it purely for the money.
How to Determine the Facing of the Building?
Here is a real case my student from East Malaysia (Borneo) consulted me. It is a very intriguing case since it is a new building back then and there is no history of occupants.
This multiple level building is shaped in a L formation, if you see from the top. Outside this building is a busy road junction and in the middle there is Water Fountain Splashing most of the day time. However the office is at level 3 and can accessed from both sides the stairs behind or from the convex side X of the building or through the door facing the Fountain at ground level.
At the side X is a forest bush further back and a small open car park in between.
