Many feng shui articles had been written about this Famous Hotel in Singapore in Scott/Orchard Road. Why this hotel shot to fame in the feng shui domain?
It all started by one of our Grand Master Hong Chuan who corrected the Feng Shui of this hotel and resulted in business growth after the audit. You can read more about this in internet.
But what prompted me to write about it now? I have read just too many comments about the feng shui of Hyatt and while today my aim is not to explain the feng shui of Hyatt, I just want to make corrections to a few vastly mistaken facts about feng shui and methods know only to our lineage, the Wu Chang lineage and not as what was written by those who do not belong to our lineage.
Seriously, you cannot comment on something you don’t know and I feel this is irresponsible when they try to downplay Grand Master’s work.
Here I shall quote several statements and my comments on it.
Many say it is Castle Gate theory as done by Master Hong Chuan. This is not true. This is a method called Door Tilting but not many knows how it works actually though many practitioner tries to use it. And that is not my slipper.
Some even say it is from the San He 5 Ghost carry Treasure. Master Hong Chuan is San Yuan practitioner as his master is Master Yen Pen who did all the cases in the classic book of Er Zhai Shi Yan and Zhai Yun Xin An. Undoubtly, many master has this book in their homes but how many can fully interpret it? But still it is grand to have this book on the shelf!
Master Yen Pen is the student of Tan Yang Wu, our Great Grand Master from the Wu Chang Sect. How can someone just twist facts just to get fame and students!!! Wu Chang belongs to San Yuan School and this is clear!!!
Another author was saying that the original door was facing straight out to the road and that the reception desk was looking out directly to the road and cause wealth to leak out. Obviously, this person does not practice Flying Star Feng Shui. Jiang Da Hong said in the book Ba Zhai Tian Yuan Fu, ‘…to truly understand the 8 houses, you must understand the 9 numbers in the 9 palaces’.
Then a famous master from Hong Kong gave his diagnosis that the poor business was caused by bad Water star 8 at the door and Water 7 was trapped in the center. He then said that Master Hong Chuan tilted so the business is good during Period 7 and 8. This is again not true. First, he does not understand the rule of the 3 & 5 auspicious in the Wu Chang lineage. Secondly, Master Hong Chuan had advice that by 1984 the feng shui has to corrected again.! This is already a great tip if you truly understand the Art of Door Tilting.
So the guesses goes on…right to even Xuan Kong Da Gua! Speculation after speculation.
To me it is more of a coincidence than real application that someone get good results unless he knows the Art of Door Tilting.
The saying that goes “The Pen is Mightier Than the Sword” is very true. Facts can be just twisted with a stroke of the pen. Generations down the road will learn all the wrong things and twisted history.
Last year I was in Singapore and a long time friend invited me to stay over and as we caught up after so long, we suddenly touched the subject of feng shui since she knew the reason I was in Singapore was to assist Master Leyau in the class. She never thought I could end up in this field…Haha…anyway,
She started to tell me how it all started when the husband engaged the feng shui master to audit the house prior to renovation. Then she lamented that it was not “smooth” even after couple of years. She then asked me a few questions related to what she observed and what the Master told them but I could not comment for a while as I don’t know her house. Finally, she asked me to take a “look” at her house. So as a childhood friend, how can I say no and after all she offered me free accomodation.
Out of curiosity my first question to her was “Where did he take the direction?” She promptly replied me “Here!” . I just acknowledged and wish her good night as it was already late, by my standards..haha… I promised to check it tomorrow morning. I already know the answer because that is not where you should take the house facing based on her condominium structure.
Next morning, while everyone was still asleep, I measured the condominium and later I asked her just a few questions and to my surprised it was Yes all the way…now I know ….
2 lessons learnt: 1. always do good, for you may be returned with free services…haha…2. fundamental things when is not well mastered, it spells disaster for yourself or your clients.
Jokes aside, simple things like where to take direction when is done wrongly, it make a whole lot of difference. Taking house direction or house facing is an art very important in the practise of feng shui.
Unfortunately, in her house, all the furnitures, bed etc…was fixed, typical situation in Singapore houses…sad but lastly I told her only 1 remedy. Happily 3 months later she dropped me a thank you sms that things has improved a little.
I was happy for her…the least I can do for a long time friend.
The reason I shared this is not to sell CAFS courses nor me as a consultant but rather to emphasize that in the study of Feng Shui, don’t be too eager to apply advance techniques or too eager to practise feng shui commercially but rather master the fundamentals well. There is a saying “Rome was not built in a day.” Acquire the right knowledge for wrong knowledge is worse than no knowledge.
When the basics are strong, many problems are already solved and friends, remember that everything has it’s own Karmic values.
It has been a while since the last post on Date selection and as promised this time I shall talk a little on San Sha (3 Killings).
San Sha in date selection has a few meanings. First, there is the first version which categorize it into Robbery Sha, Calamity Sha & Annual Sha. So violating the San Sha (3 killings), one will be entangled with these 3 kinds of problems.
Another version says that San Sha just simply means the Weakest Energy of the Year. So naturally one will not one to be using the weakest energy because they are useless and weak energy bring problems more than benefits. Which ever reason you subcribe to, still violating the San Sha is disastrous.
San Sha changes location every year. This year in the Year of Mao or Rabbit (2011), San Sha is in the West. Next Year in 2012 San Sha moves to South and so on.
Even Months have their on San Sha. Similarly, the location changes by the month. Month San Sha too have significant impact on the date selected.
One of the most important task in date selection is to avoid a San Sha when selecting for personal endeavours.
In Feng Shui application, any house sitting on San Sha should avoid having any form of activities in and around the house. It can be from moving in, establishing altars, renovation and so on….
Violating San Sha can lead to many calamities including robbery, accidents, fined, lawsuit depending what your house feng shui is being afflicted and your destiny chart.
So the final parting words are selecting good date begins by avoiding bad dates. By avoiding bad timing of san Sha, you are already avoided unnecessary problems. By having No problems really gives you a piece of mind allows you to focus & go all out to achieve the goals you have set.
Important events, is it necessary to have a good auspicious date the help you accelerate your efforts, it is like going on a path of least resistance. I cannot convince you until you have experience it yourself. I believe because I have experienced it many times.
