The L and R Theory

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,
Let me share with you two simple observations. It is based on my own
personal experience and in my opinion, you can try it out to see if it
`fits' you:-
A. If I want to practise Feng Shui can you tell whether I am more inclined
to practise the Shapes and Form School or the mathematics side such as the
Flying Star Theory.
I need to ask you a question:
Do you enjoy figures e.g. logic, mathematics or the sciences or more
inclined to the spatial e.g. art, imagination and prefer to express yourself
using graphics and pictures?
If you are more inclined to enjoy the spatial e.g. seeing both words and
enjoy pictures you most likely are one who will feel more comfortable using
the Shapes and Form School of Feng Shui.
On the other hand, if you enjoy figures e.g. maths, then most likely if you
are considering practising Feng Shui is more inclined towards using the
mathematics side of Feng Shui e.g. the Flying Star Theory.
In Feng Shui,
If you are a "Left Brain person" - you are considered more YIN person and
more inclined towards the languages, science, mathematics, logic.
If you are a "Right Brain person" - you are considered more YANG person and
more inclined towards imagination, the art, spatial, dance and enjoy to
express yourself in graphics.
Here, if you are inclined as a " Left Brain person ", most likely if you are
`taking' up Feng Shui, prefer the Shapes and Form School of Feng Shui.
Here, if you are inclined as a " Right Brain person ", most likely if you
are `taking' up Feng Shui, prefer using the Flying Star Compass School of
Feng Shui.
Well this entirely based on my personal observation.
For example (I may be right or wrong but this is what I know based on the
Feng Shui Author's style of writing a book):-
I feel that Raymond Lo, Master Joseph Yu are more inclinded towards the
mathematics side of Feng Shui. For example, Raymond Lo specializes in the
Pillars of Destiny while Master Joseph Yu, into the Flying Star.
While, I feel that Lillian Too, is more inclined towards expressing herself
partially in graphics and words and thus more into the Shapes and Form
School.
Personally, I am more inclined to the Shapes and Form School while Robert is
more inclined towards the mathematics side.
B. From my research, I believe that there is another factor involved. You
can check this out using the Pillars of Destiny.
Do count the number of YIN and the number of YANG in your Eight Pillars. If
you have more YIN, most likely, you are again more inclined towards the
Shape and Form School of Feng Shui. If you have more YANG elements, more
inclined to the mathematics side of Feng Shui.
Please note that like other theories, I prefer to use the word " more
inclined " because unlike a continuum e.g. there are no extremes of hot or
cold i.e. totally using only one or the other.
What you can learn from the above is to choose your style and not get
frustrated into learning or forcing yourself to learn both methods. Believe
me if you are a person with lots of YIN e.g. at least 5 or more YIN
elements, you can
develop your intuition skills well. Let me share with you. I am a very YIN
person and through the years, I believe have increased my intuitive skills.
Many a times, I can sense a home or office and only use the Compass methods
e.g. Flying Star to confirm.
Most of the time, I do get it correct. The only time I had a problem was
when I evaluated an office. Thsi company has a two units of three storey
office side by side. Here, I had to depend on the Flying Star chart to
confirm my findings.
This is similar to the West where if you had noticed some US Universities
are more inclined to the Right Brain `students' e.g. Havard University.
While MIT, USA is more inclined towards the mathematics side.
Overall, this is why I feel that those who are more YIN and the Right Brain
person has an added advantage as they could where possible `develop' their
intuitive skills and only rely on the mathematics side of Feng Shui for
confirmation.
This is why I had discussed this with Robert and he felt that those who are
of the Left Brain plus more YANG, would have to rely on mathematics side of
Feng Shui as they are `less' able to rely on the intuitive Form of Feng
Shui.
Well, do take note that the above is based on my personal opinion and
observations.
What I hope to do is later to create a voting booth and ask users the above
questions and see a general voting trend. It would be quite interesting:)
If you have anything to add or want to share your views, do let me know:)
Warmest Regards,
Cecil

Intriguing! It is true.
I have always thought that I am more a "Left-Brain" person. I have never associated that with the Yin and Yang aspect.
I did a count on the # of Yang / Yin elements on my Pillars. It confirms that. I have 6 Yang elements and only 2 Yin elements. Oops! That seems very unbalanced! Besides balancing our 5-elements, do we also need to balance the Yin and Yang? How to?
best regards,
Rose

Dear Cecil,
Was that a typo or I understood it wrongly?
"Left Brain person" should be more YANG, while
"Right Brain person" should be more YIN, right?

Interesting theory Cecil.
I have 4 yin, 4 yang in my chart. Does this mean I can do either ?

Dear Rose,
Thank you for pointing it out. Yes, it is a typo. What you have corrected is
the correct version.
"Left Brain person" should be more YANG
"Right Brain person" should be more YIN

Dear Glyn,
As the Yin and Yang concept is currently available i.e.
"Left Brain person" should be more YANG
"Right Brain person" should be more YIN
all I have done is to go further indepth by linking the above to the
`preferred' style or inclination to the style of Feng Shui which I call it "
L and R Theory of Feng Shui. "
Based on the above theory, there are two parts to it. Here, the more
important point relates to whether you are better able to express yourself
diagramatically or more inclinded to use only words.
For example, if you attend a small course and if there are presentations,
you will notice that some course participants prefer to use a mixture of
words and graphics to express themselves. While another person may only use
words.
Here, based on my personal analysis, the person who uses a mixture of words
and graphics tend to be using their `Right Brain' or spatial side more than
then a `left brain person'.
This is the more important of the two parts of the L and R Theory.
For the second part of the theory, if you are like me very YIN e.g. 6 YIN
out of 8 elements of the pillars, I prefer more graphics with a mix of
words. While Robert is like yourself well balanced and equally comfortable
with both. But he still has a preference for words.
For the second part of the theory, it needs to be looked into further. But
under Feng Shui, you can suppose `estimate' a person who is either more Yin
or more Yang. Like Robert, he does equally well with both Shapes and Form
and the mathematics side of Feng Shui.
For yourself, I am very pleased that with the amount of correspondence you
had with me and Robert, you are equally good at both Shapes and Form and the
mathematics side. In addition to this, you are well -read and this makes a
vast difference in the way you see things:)
I strongly recommend that if you need good reliable Feng Shui Audit done
particulary in Australia or in Perth, please contact Glyn:)
Warmest Regards,
Cecil

In your case, you are similar with Robert who can do both equally well:)

Dear Rose,
Yes, I am particularly impressed with your keen observation which if we look
at it, belongs more to Yang. As a more `Yin' person I feel is less likely to
`notice' such errors.
Robert will credit you and privately e-mail you for a second credit to allow
you to generate the two directions.
As for a person who is more Yin or more Yang, this belongs to a very
exciting field of other Chinese Yin and Yang theories which include food.
For example, cooking techniques e.g. smoking fish etc.., baking stewing and
deepfrying are more towards Yang and uncooked food, steaming are more Yin.
Chinese culture is vast and later on, we will also go into such areas and
even I-Ching.
One other thing is that from my understanding of the L and R Theory, the
more Yin you are, the more one can develop higher `intuitive' skills. For
example, one Feng Shui practising Master asked me whether I find Grand
Master Yap Cheng Hai uses `orthodox' Feng Shui. My reply is that most likely
he is more Yin person and through the years, may have cultivated his
`intuitive' skills to the highest level. Personally, for me, quite often,
nowadays, I feel that I can sense more and more and usually what I had
`forecasted' does take place.
The good thing is that those who are more Yin should not only use their
intuitive skills but cross reference it to the compass school techniques and
surprisingly, most of the time, my feelings are similiar to those of the
Flying Star most of the time. Unless the two units are so close by ... here,
I need the Flying Star Chart to confirm which units are better.
I encourage all users here to be well-read and do not ever become so fixed
to learning only one technique and calling this the BEST. Not only will you
become a laughing stock but miss out the benefits of other techniques.
Worse still, Feng Shui is akin to playing with Fire or GOD. People trust you
to do a proper evaluation. But many a times, the outcome may turn out worse.
Warmest Regards,
Cecil

If you are a "Left Brain person" - you are considered more YIN person
and
more inclined towards the languages, science, mathematics, logic.
If you are a "Right Brain person" - you are considered more YANG
person and
more inclined towards imagination, the art, spatial, dance and enjoy to
express yourself in graphics.
