Updates: Thanks to my friend who pointed out my error, I should say using only the 24 Mountains ring to Plot the Flying Star as some modern Loupan already has the flying star chart on it.
One of the most tricky subject in the application of Feng Shui is Magnetic interference to Luopan measurement.
Some say you should take the measurement as it is while most masters say it should be free from magnetic interference.
To understand this is to first understand the relationship between Feng Shui and Magnetic Field.
Today I am going to share some of my views. No right nor wrong…they are just my views.
The universe undoubtedly is very much influenced by magnetic field. Magnetic field is every where and cannot be created, destroyed nor stopped but it can be manipulated.
Earth has huge magnetic field lines aligning itself from North to South Pole. You may imagine this way though it is not exactly the way it exist.
Feng Shui is the management of Qi or chinese way of expressing energy. In Feng shui the formulas was based on understanding where Universal Qi source is and how it flows and how we can modify/manipulate it to our benefit.
To measure is to know what Qi is coming (good or bad) and then decide how to manipulate it. If you agree with me up to this point, then you will agree that to know what Qi is coming, the way we measure it is very important.
To say stand 20m outside the house and take measurement is in my humble opinion not accurate.
To take the direction of door facing from the architect’s blue print is fundamentally wrong.
To take the door with the house grill locked is also wrong. Why? Metal affects the measurement of the Loupan (Compass) but it does not affect the Universal Magnetic field or rather too small to have significant effect.
So what is the right method? Shh….it’s a secret!
Wanna know more……stay tuned.
