Feng Shui: House of the Powerful Sage

3 Chen (Thunder) person in a North-West facing house 6 Chien (Heaven)
 =  Hexagram 34 Ta Chuang = House of the Powerful Sage.

The practice of Feng Shui is complex and involved. There are many schools of thought and variations to the art of tapping into the energies of the universe. Although Feng Shui seems to be multi-disciplinary, with each school of thought advocating their superiority over the others, I prefer to follow an interdisciplinary approach. That is, combining the different schools of thought with intuition and common sense to achieve the most effective results. This article is guided by 'Classical Feng Shui', but Black Hat Sect (Western) Feng Shui should not be discredited, but rather incorporated to achieve a whole.

The Saturn Talisman (time and order)  is the main tool of reference. However to fully comprehend the intrinsic world of energy flow,  a thorough knowledge is needed of the following: the I-Ching and its 64 hexagrams; 5 elements; Chinese Astrology; the 28 Moon Mansions: the 24 Star Portals (Dragon Mountains) and the power of connecting with Spirit.

Open your mind and change your world.

2 SYSTEMS OF FENG SHUI (wind-water) changing energy:
1. Eight Mansions: focus on direction and its influence on people.
2. Flying Stars: focus on direction and its influence on buildings.
Together they bring excellent results.  

I am influenced by 8 cardinal directions.
4 will support me and 4 wont.

Auspicious directions: bring positive energy: gain, wealth, health, happiness.
Inauspicious directions: bring negative energy: loss, divorce, disease, poverty.

Activate auspicious directions only.

My personal gua number determines these directions.

How to calculate the Gua number:
Male: add last 2 numbers of year of birth and subtract from 10.
Female: add last 2 numbers of year of birth and add 5.

Gua Number 3:
Activate: South ($); North (health); SE (love); East (growth). 
Lucky: Wood (tree, plants + colours: blue / black / green / brown) to the East.
Avoid: Metal (chimes, colours) and Fire (real or colours) to the East.
Bright lights will hurt 3.
Gemstones: jade, emerald blue topaz and amethyst.
Lucky numbers: 3, 12, 21.

Activate and face:
Wealth: +90 Sheng Chi (South) – generating breath / life giving energy. Activate the millionaires chi to get wealth and a position of authority and power. Powerful ppl.
Health: +80 Tien Yi (North) – heavenly doctor, long life, unexpected wealth from heaven, good friends, social standing, power of speech. Government and VIP support.
Relationships: +70 Yen Nien (SE) – love, romance, good relationships, networking and good health. Activate to have good obedient, successful kids. Wealthy descendants.
Stability and Development: +60  Fu Wei (East) – stability, happiness, harmony, peace, money. Place grown-up kids here for them to move out of the house.

Don't Activate or face:
-90 (West) – disaster, poverty, disease, death, divorce.
Can place stove here to burn away bad luck.
-80 (NE) – 6 killings, backstabbing, affairs, theft, injury, accidents, loss.
Place toilet here.
-70 (NW) – 5 ghosts – lawsuits, divorce, arguments, theft, loss, gossip.
-60 (SW) – setbacks, obstacles, tragedy, irritations.

Putting Life Gua into action:
Use accurate compass directions of house.  When I use and activate my good directions I will sail with the wind rather than against it (obstacles).
Doors must receive energy from my good directions: North, East, SE, South.
Stove and doors to face my good directions to receive auspicious energy.
Bed must have headboard for support, stability and protection.
Toilet in – 70.
Stove should not be placed in any of the 4 good areas.  Placed in any of the 4 negative positions – fire can burn up luck, especially in the –90 (West) to increase wealth $$$. Knobs should face one of my good directions. Do not place in -70 (NE) = betrayals and lawsuits. Stove never in the North-West - fire in heaven.

Home Office:
Face South ($) or SE for good relations with clients. 
Do not face -70 (NW) – lawsuits and betrayals.
Money Luck: Door and bed face +90 (South) and stove in -90 (West).

NW 1st and 3rd 15 degree increments available for East Group people (1, 3, 4, 9).

Xuan Kong Fei Xing (pronounced: shoon kong fay sing).
Fei Xing (fay sing) = Flying Sars.
Subtle mysteries of time and space or the mysterious void.
How time affects space and the people who live there.

Like the tides of the sea, the Feng Shui energy of the environment (living and working space), naturally supersedes that of the individual. Why is this? You cannot claim that your personal astrological chart, bio-rhythms, energy, etc is good, therefore your chances of surviving a a natural or man-made disaster are better or therefore you can go swim in the ocean while it is high-tide. There is usually one kitchen, one dining room, one living or reception room for all to share regardless of your personal gua number. The energies of the environment should be tapped in and harnessed for all to thrive regardless of personal charts.  Then orientate each family member to harness their lucky directions.

Energy & time constantly changes. Changes made to environment can alter my relationship with the world. Flying Stars removes the mystery or seemingly random distribution of good and bad luck enabling me to isolate variations in fortune.
Every building has a natal flying star chart depending on the date moved in (very accurate) and the direction the front door faces.
Period 7 house – moved in between February 1984 – February 2004.
Period 8 house – moved in between February 2004  - February 2024.
Direction / time / environmental forms: together they influence the living environment. Land forms are immutable and override energy of occupants.
Main aim: analyse energy of the building and adjust it to support the occupants.
The stars have a celestial correlation to the 7 stars of the Big Dipper (Northern Ladle) and 2 imaginary stars for a total of 9.
Each star possess a unique quality of energy that can influence behaviour and events. Some stars are auspicious, others not.
Flying Star System is based on large scale time cycles and planetary alignments. 
Observes the movement of planets. Mega-cycle (180 years) divided into 3 x 60 year cycles (upper, middle, lower) = 3 20 year periods / ages. Each 20 year period is assigned a number and a trigram that exhibits a unique energy that influences the world. The Milky Way shifts every 18 - 20 years – affecting the luck of a place (building) and its occupants.

Currently we are in the period of 8 – KEN (mountain) (2004 – 2024)
8 rules supreme. Colours are white, turquoise, brown, yellow, leopard print.
8 considered as lucky anyway (always) – noble energy, wealth, prosperity.
Brings great wealth, strengthens family values, resolves karma and past mistakes.
Focus on land, housing, real estate, construction, mining, green living, preservation

Mountain (Sitting) Star left back – health
Facing (Water) Star – right back – wealth
Time star to the bottom (base).

1,6,8,9 – good.
1 water – money, abundance.
4 wood – romance, writing.
6 metal – recognition, success.
8 earth – wealth.
9 fire – advancement, achievement.

Place water on wealth stars 1, 8, 9.

2,3,5,7 – bad stars.
2 earth – disease, death, stomach problems.
3 wood – arguments, fighting, breathing problems.
5 earth – death, disaster – evil, wild, unpredictable.
7 – metal – 3rd party, fire and theft.

Place metal on worst stars 2 and 5 (especially when on door direction).

Flying Star Feng Shui – makes an essential connection between the orientation of a building, the move-in date, the present time and the luck of the occupants. 
Must extract and activate good stars and star combinations in important rooms such as bedrooms, kitchens, dining rooms and home office. Make sure that the entry points are portals that activate wealth stars.

Annual visiting (time) stars:
Fly in for a month or a year – can trigger star combinations to release energy.
When an annual star visits or combines with the facing (water) stars, wealth luck.

Grand Duke Jupiter:
Corresponds to the ruling animal year.
Year breaker = exact opposite direction.
Be careful when travelling in these directions.

Year             Jupiter         Year Breaker
                    Tai Sui              Sui Po                  
2016             SW3                   NE3 
2017             W2                      E2
2018             NW1                  SE1

Direction Rules !
Directional energy supports more powerfully than a particular room direction.
Some directions are not being used in the recommendations, because the flying stars in these directions are not good and using them could bring a negative outcome.

Five Ghosts (Spirits / Angels) carry treasure:
Applied correctly the 5 ghosts carry immense prosperity right to my door.
Basically a water formula.
3 Things need to be in harmony: door direction, mountain energy, water flow.

Robbery mountain: eg dead tree (strange illness), block out of view or remove.

Water Towers and Cemetries: conduct dead and negative energy.

Dead, empty or void lines (door degrees):  bring serious bad luck and depletes wealth.  Extreme dead (yin) energy (chi) cause bankruptcy, illness, or can be the reason a property does not sell. Most serious are doors situated on exact cardinal points: 90 East, 180 South, 270 West, 360 North. Also where South changes to South-West 225, West changes to North-West 315. These are only good for churches and cemeteries where spirits dwell.

8 Roads of destruction: water / roads / driveways / pavements – brings disaster, misfortune, bankruptcy, yellow springs (water from hell or underworld).  Door faces Southwest 3 (217.6 - 232.5). Road from South 3 (187 – 202). At 15 degree increments. 
Too many roads around – property becomes a floating island – create a strong backing and insulate the property.

8 Killing Forces: door facing 262.6 – 277.5 West and mountain located in South-East.

U or Shell shape: energy can accumulate and endure bringing money luck.

Extreme slopes bad: - to or away from the house – killing energy, moves too fast. Put up solid walls. Embracing and holding energy at your house will bring fantastic money luck.

Front Door: flank with plants and place a black doormat. Brings instant wealth.

Narrow houses: squeeze money energy.

Open drains: are extremely bad, great loss of wealth. Must be out of sight and closed.

Exact cardinal points: 90 East, 180 South, 270 West, 360 North.  Occur between guas or the the 8 directions, even 1 or 2 degrees left or rights.
