Chapter 1: Introduction to Feng Shui

 

The words Feng Shui in Chinese literally means Wind and Water. In Asia, it is popularily called Geomancy. And a practitioner is known as a Geomancer. Geomancy emcompass not only Feng Shui but also the various other Chinese divinity methods.

The Chinese have long observed that some surroundings are better then others, and for centuries they have used geomancy to improve the quality of life.

Today, Feng Shui has evolved into a refined art used to enhance luck and well-being through the modifications of layout and orientation of work-places and homes and is gaining popularity in the West.

The aim of Feng Shui is a complete harmony and a deep sensitivity with the natural order. Many aspects of Feng Shui are based on intuition (sixth sense) and commonsense.

A caricature showing the use of `intuition' or sixth sense:-

 

For example, as the probability of a fire starting in the kitchen is much higher than in other rooms;it was felt that one should not sleep in a bedroom which is above the kitchen:-

 

There once a Feng Shui practitioner who had advised his client to walk up to his office at the 18th storey. He faithfully followed the advice until he retired at 55 years of age as a  clerk for over 25 years!

 

We need to get a right start in the home and office with good advice on Traditional Authentic Feng Shui. Good Feng Shui concepts are designed to alter the environment to our advantage.

 

 

 

What is the mission of this site?

To create awareness, overall appreciation and understanding of Feng Shui Concepts and Theories. Strong emphasis on the understanding of Applied Feng Shui Practises for modern living.

The Objectives:

1. Review and interpret classical research materials on Feng Shui.

2. Make Feng Shui theories, concepts and templates easily available to the public. For example by merging technology with Feng Shui.

Why use the word GEOMANCY and not FENG SHUI?

In the Far East e.g. Singapore and Malaysia, many Feng Shui Practioners include the word Geomancy in their company name instead of Feng Shui. For example: ABC Geomancy Consultancy, I Ching Geomancy Center, Modern Geomancy Services etc.

The main reason is because these Practioners do not only offer Feng Shui consultations but many other services such as choosing a name for a newborn, change of name, mapping a person's Heaven Chart using Pillars of Destiny, Face, Palm reading and more. The services are varied.

You can say that a Geomancer " serves his client from the day they were born to the day when they die ".

Similiarly, Geomancy.net's aim is to provide you with a comprehensive range of useful Feng Shui, Chinese Astrology and Destiny resources and computerised tools.

What is covered in this website?

This site has one of the largest collections of source materials for anyone wanting to have
a better understanding and appreciation of what goes "behind" the advice given by Feng Shui Masters many of whom simply tells you to position your bed here, your furniture there.

Do you know why?

All topics on this site were carefully organized into self-contained modules.

This site is for the Feng Shui beginner, intermediate and advanced students or simply anyone wanting to understand Traditional Feng Shui at your leisure! Many hours had been spent to enhance this site and it is now the Fourth Edition.

It may take a few hours to go through the entire website. Don't worry, if you are unable to
cover the entire site, you can always bookmark this site and continue another day:)

What is not covered in this site?

This site covers everything you see below EXCEPT for unrecognized Feng Shui practises categorised under "Others" see below:-.

This site currently does not cover the "Western" variation of Feng Shui i.e. 9 Star Ki but will do so at a later stage.

Less emphasis is also placed on YIN Form of Feng Shui for the dead as it is not so popular today.

You will also get a balanced view of acceptable Traditional Feng Shui practises and controversial subjects.

For example: some Feng Shui Practitioners do not believe in the use of the "Bagua mirror" as a cure. There are many more differing views on other topics. We will find out later in this free course.

You can get Free Reports and Advice from the MyAdviser Forum to further compliment your learning!

Do enjoy a wealth of information from this site. Let's proceed!

Chapter 2: The Luo Shu Square

The Legend of the Giant Tortoise

According to ancient Chinese legends, a giant tortoise surfaced from the River Lo in central China around 4,000 years ago. The ancient Chinese found a pattern on a tortoise shell (refer to the extreme left picture above). There were circular dots of numbers on the giant tortoise that were arranged in a three-by-three nine grid pattern on it's shell.

The pattern of numbers on the giant tortoise in any given direction i.e. horizontal, vertical or diagonal all add up to a total of 15 (refer to the middle picture above). This is equal to the 15 days in each of the 24 cycles of the Chinese solar year.

In ancient times, the Hebrew used the same identical `magic square' which they referred it as the Square of the planet Saturn or the Square of the Earth.

Significance of the  arrangements of the numbers on the giant tortoise feature prominently in the following:

1. The Chinese system of time dimensions also takes into account the number Nine (9). Here, time is divided into 9 ages, each  lasting 20 years: Three 20 year ages make up one period. A full cycle  consists of a total of 180 years. Each period is assigned a number, from one to nine.

2. The Luo Shu Square with its 3 x 3 grid or nine sectors is also used in Compass School Feng Shui called The Flying Star Theory (Xuan Kong Fei Xing). The Luo Shu Square helps the Feng Shui practitioner to analyze a site, a house, a flat (apartment) and/or an office space or building. It is used to unlock the time dimension of Feng Shui and allows the practitioner to accurately know when is the best time to make changes to the site, the home or the interior decoration.
