Real Feng Shui

I have always been a strong believer in Feng Shui. Since my first home, I have engaged many Master. However, none has proved positive n consistence results.
This has changed when i met Master Alan. He was able to pinpoint the past problems in my house as well as potential issues which was going to happen. And, it did happen. I implemented his suggested solution and I’m grateful things start to improve over time.
This event has prompted me to learn from him. I hope one day with the skill and knowledge acquired, I’m able to help others.
So, why do i want to learn him? I guess the answer is obvious. He has proved to me, with positive effect in my current house. Next, his skill comes from proven and authentic lineage. This is very important as i do not wish to learn from some self claimed Master whom does DIY, self learning from books and without a recognized lineage.
The course itself is structure and informative, telling a lot about why this and that, making the understanding meaningful.
There are also relevant life examples n case studies which help to make learning purposeful. There is one very critical part of the course – Oral Secret. This differentiate make the true master.

Feng Shui Myth – Master Alan has all answers to those, made by DIY Master.

Ming Tang

Ming Tang 明堂

Most self learn masters call it Bright Hall. This is widely accepted by non Chinese practitioners as correct. This is the disadvantage of learning feng shui from non Lineage schools.

What Most People Think?

Most people or practitioner thinks it is the open space around the main entry point of the premise. It can be further defined as the the water in front of the house . Some others say it is the open, uncluttered and clean space in front of main door. This is to ensure the energy entering the house in “uncontaminated”.

Daodejing

Ho Lok Sang in his translation of Dao De Jing noted this “….the Chinese language is such that one word can carry multiple meanings, it is easy to be misled. But Laozi never worried about this problem, because after all the insight has to come from within. So he is sure that those who sincerely seek the truth will see the truth….”

In his preface he wrote “In the same way, Laozi (often spelled as Lao-Tzu), who wrote the Daodejing, tried to describe the indescribable. The truth about the human mind, and about the universal mind, cannot be sought from without. It must be sought from within us. This understanding is a gift, and is not acquired. Indeed, those who try to seek that truth from without are bound to fail. Indeed, we need to unlearn to rediscover the gift.” This I concur with him.

I believe the same applies to Feng Shui. This is why a Lineage is important if one is serious about learning the art.Chinese usually write in poem form. In poem, the sentence are shorten. They are meant to be expanded orally by the teacher. It’s just like zipping the file and unzipping it back later. You may think of it as ancient way of encrypting a knowledge.

What made it more difficult is that Chinese character carries multiple meaning. Just like the word Fang 方。 It can mean direction and also location. So when does it mean direction and when it means location?

House Facing, Fundamentally Difficult ?

One of the pre-requisite for a Feng shui consultancy job is to determine the Facing of a property. Most Feng shui formula requires to first to establish this unless one follows the Black Hat School.

Different schools uses different criteria to establish this but they all agree on this same criteria and that is the Yang Side. Yang here means the opposite of Yin.

Yang can be defined as Brightness, Man is Yang, Noise, Light, Movement and so forth.

Yin on the other hand is the opposite thus it means Darkness, Female, Silence, Heavy, Stillness and so forth.

The difference between schools of Feng shui is the individual interpretation of which side of the building is considered the Most Yang. Some schools may add a few sub criteria to further define Yang.

Advice from a Master with more than 30 Years experience – Master Issac Chung

Source
Inside the famous Feng Shui Book, “The secret codes of Yuen Hung 玄空秘旨”, starts from the beginning, it said, “Without knowing the source, it doesn’t know where to get into, all the trigrams inside the chart are wrong不知來路,焉知入路,盤中八卦皆空。”


It is a very important reminder to tell us, “How to start?”, but most of the people are overlooking this sentence or limits it only in forming a Feng Shui Chart.
In fact, the writer truly gave us a key, “knowing the source!”, when we start learning Feng Shui from someone, we need to know where his knowledge coming from? If their knowledge is coming from books or internet, then you need to be alert, who knows his information are correct or wrong?
If they could teach themselves from books or internet, why you can’t do that the same instead of paying that much of money to learn from them?
If their knowledge is coming from lineage, check with his lineage and research his Feng Shui jobs before you learn from them.
Although you do what I advice, it doesn’t guarantee that you will find a true master but at least it can be avoid the fake master.

Online Feng Shui A Valid Way?

Today many consultants are offering Online Feng Shui Consultancy. It’s easy, fast and hassle free or is it so? The one drawback is that the owner has to do some work.

However is this a valid way of performing a Feng Shui Audit? This is the important question because it concerns your own well being. I would like to offer a couple of pointers for those thinking of seeking for easy way out by having an Online Feng Shui Audit.

I would say there are fundamentals in Feng Shui that we should not ignore that has been taught by our forefathers or grand masters. This is the reason why we need a Lineage in Feng Shui field.


If you look up the dictionary, Lineage means lineal descent from an ancestor; ancestry or pedigree.


The problem is that many learn from Masters who reads from books sold for a few US Dollars in the streets of Hong Kong and Taiwan. With some persuasive skills, they sell these so called Feng Shui Secrets to yearning students who especially do not know what a Lineage is.

There is no one to correct his interpretation of the Chinese Classics. Thus the margin of error can be big. They make their knowledge sounded logical so they can be more convincing. Well, Feng Shui is not logical to an ordinary person. It’s logic is not at such surface level. Hence it is termed metaphysics and not purely physics!

Without the guidance of a lineage master or sifu, one can be assured the lead the stray path. Chinese understands this well. That is why one cannot learn authentic Qi Kung or Kung Fu from books or videos. It has to be under the guidance of a master or sifu.

What has this to do with Online Feng Shui Audit? Offering Online Feng Shui is possibly out of 2 main reasons. Ignorance of Feng Shui or for a Quick Buck.

Feng Shui Audit Process

The Feng Shui Master

When we buy a property, we usually will engage a highly trained Feng Shui Master to do an evaluation on the property. He is preferably comes from a Lineage school and not selected on the basis of popularity. This is because the process of Feng Shui is a highly guarded skills handed down generations to generations via a lineage.

This process is usually known as Feng Shui Audit or Feng Shui Consultation. So how does the process looks like? To make it easy for general public to understand, I have broken it down to 3 levels.

Macro Feng Shui

The first level audit or what I call the Macro audit is based on the surrounding environment of the property such as where the Dragons are and where the waters are. How the Dragons move and come affects the quality of the Human factor Qi and how the waters come and go affects the Wealth Qi. Collectively, if they can match in neat formation thus being able to lock the Qi, this is considered an ideal Feng Shui formation.

Micro Feng Shui

Now together with the property layout or intended layout, assuming you are building it up from sketch, the master will assess the type of Qi that this property will be receiving. Thus the primary objective is to tap the best Qi to improve the wealth and health factors. I call this the Micro level.

Often Misunderstood Lineage Knowledge

What is the difference between Lineage knowledge and non lineage knowledge? While you can read about Lineage in my previous posting, I think the best way to educate is with an example. Why is it 5 Yellow in Flying Star is sometimes labelled as the Emperor? Some typical answers will be like “The 5 Yellow star has a character like Emperor. It will give both good and bad. When it is good,it will give very huge auspicious. When it is bad, it can easy kill people. It is easy hot temper and angry like the emperor.” or “Just Ancient Chinese Astrology ppl related it to Jupiter, then from 5 yellow is so powerful transformed into emperor , the rest all become legend n myths that keep evolving n become books now, The most powerful the most auspicious and the greatest star when in timing… if not in timing the most catastrophic star can influence other star become bad stars.” or “5 is in the center of Lo Shu thus this star controls all direction and is known as emperor.” Continue reading “Often Misunderstood Lineage Knowledge”

2-5 The Mistaken Hero?

In the last decade, many people actually spent a lot of money and time going for Feng Shui courses. Then they start moving from schools to schools just like shopping for cloths. Yet few had consistent results while some gave up. The more seriously hurt ones labelled feng shui as “fake”.

If you read again above statement, this person is not alone. Thus many schools who do not have a lineage will encounter this similar doubt. Thus through their own understanding from the books they buy and trying to match back the reality of the property as to why it is doing good or bad. This reconciliation process has it’s natural flaws because we are dealing with a subject on metaphysics or destiny.

Thus they will think, why this mall has a 5 Yellow Door and yet it does so well? In order to satisfy themselves, they will reason it that probably only businesses or malls can use 5 Yellow! A more creative “master” will reason further that 5 Yellow is the “Emperor” and only “Emperor” can live in a mall sized property where money making is the primary concern!. Or 5 Yellow is only usable in hospitals or clinics so that more people will get sick and hence enhance the business of the hospital or clinic.

Naturally they will have these answers to students and to the new & naive person, they will accept whatever is given.

Lineage

When l first stepped into the world of Feng Shui when I started to learn from my first Master, I was told by many that there are lineages in some schools while some say it is not necessary to learning this art. Until today after many years, I still hear this strongly debated subject in forums.

So I have chosen to write about it and the reality today.

A little back ground information of what is being meant by having a Lineage. Lineage means you have an ancestry in certain knowledge. In feng shui, means you have masters or grand masters who transfer knowledge down from generations to generations.

Traditionally, Chinese only hand over knowledge to sons or indoor disciples and they in turn pass it down to their own children or in door disciples. Masters of those days believe that only the privilege or those with affinity can acquire this art. The reason is because the art can harm, turn the fortune or to distinguish one from the others.

But then what is an Indoor disciple? An Indoor disciple is a student who had undergone tea ceremony to admit and to formally express their willingness to follow rules of the lineage. Ancient Chinese people has this bondage with the master whom they treat like their father. In return, the master teaches the disciple the knowledge so they can be proficient in the art they are mastering. This is not exclusive to Feng Shui, it applies to being a cook to studying medicine or martial arts.

In parts of China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, this is being practiced. Here is a photo courtesy of Master Issac Chung during the tea ceremony with his Master Lui Hart Ming.
