What is the Three-Step Approach?
Posted in: Info :: Feng Shui Tips & Guidelines Posted on: Fri, 11 Jan 2002, 21:03 PM,
For those who are `thirsty' to find out more of Feng Shui, we should use a sensible approach.
The term coined is " The three-step approach to understanding Feng Shui "
In particular, if a concept or theory is being put forth to us:
Step 1: Find out "What is Purpose of this concept/theory? "
Step 2: What are it's strengths.
Step 3: What are it's weaknesses.
If we follow the above three easy steps, I feel that you are on your way to have a solid grounding in Feng Shui.
Anyway, let's look at it this way, many of the concepts in Feng Shui is based on commonsense. And the above is as easy as 1, 2 and 3...
In my opinion, I have always tried to take the above approach to learn and continue to learn and apply Feng Shui.
Learning is always continous and as this site has to do with Applied Feng Shui, it is all the more crucial to use these three easy steps to approach an answer or a question.
Many of the books are not geared to Applied Feng Shui.
I always recommend a three easy steps:
Step 1: Find out the aim and purpose of each concept/idea. Step 2: What is it's strength Step 3: What is it's weakness
Frankly, even today, whenever, I answer or try to visualise the various concepts; I always think of these three steps. To see if which concept or idea can relate to most of us.
Furthermore, in Feng Shui, there are so many concepts or ideas. Not all concepts can be successfully applied to all or most people.
Therefore, even if one is new to Feng Shui but approach the various concepts by understanding each one... may even thru time fare better than someone who had learnt Feng Shui a life-time yet... may not be so sure of it.
The purpose, why I had not archieved any of the past messages is so that anyone can do a SEARCH for a topic of their interest and find at least 10 or more past responses.
Thus, if you have an immediate question or some or several topics; why not try to do a SEARCH in this forum for any relevant subject that comes in your mind.
For example: search for " fish tank , water fountain " etc...
Applied Feng Shui is more relevant as it is about real people and real issues - faced.
Eight House Has It's Limitations

Under the Eight House concept, it is pure and simple: EBONY OR IVORY. YES or NO!
Are you working in a good sector? Yes or No? Are you sitting facing a good direction? Yes or No?
What else do you want out of this theory or concept? This concept is either Yes or No? And there are no such things as BUT, IF or MAYBE!
The saying goes a miss is as good as a mile!
Are you working in a good sector? NO! Are you sitting facing a good direction? NO!
JUST TOO BAD! NOTHING ELSE CAN BE DONE with this concept! It is YES OR NO! NO BUTS, IFS or MAYBE, please!
If the baby is 3months old and cannot even stand-up, how can you make the baby run, please!
You have to maximize your luck from somewhere else!
APPLICATION OF THE GUA / EIGHT HOUSE CONCEPT
1. Frankly, I have always mentioned: about the concept of The Three-Step-Approach
2. If one is applying the Eight House / Four Good and Four Bad directions: under this concept: either you work within a good sector and equally nice to have work facing a good direction OR ELSE..... look up the above link....... (FULL STOP).
COMPASS SCHOOL OF FENG SHUI: TWO CONCEPTS
3. Please note that both the Eight House / 4 Good-bad directions belong to the Compass School of Feng Shui. The other concept is the Flying Star Feng Shui.
4. The later (Flying Star) is more flexible as it suppose to have a "cure" for each sector. The downside is one has to do the homework to work out a chart.. analyse and propose a solution (if any).
