ZhenShen 正神. LingShen 零神. ZhaoShen 照神, some called them Direct, Indirect and Sub-direct Spirit principles are the backbone of the Huge SanYuan 大三元, that these conditions must be fulfilled for these techniques to bring results. This is almost liked the True Commandment. However, different schools, different strokes, especially XuanKong schools 玄空派. It was so corrupted these days that we were so familiar with the Flying Star school approach 玄空飛星學, we thought that it is the only true method.
The classic said, “The real key to understand LingShen and ZhengShen is that water is considered prosperous when it is declining and mountain is considered prosperous when it is timely”. Unfortunately, it does not define what water is and what mountain is. Most of the XuanKong schools 玄空派 will take mountain and water almost literary. Mountain is immovable therefore Yin, Water flowing therefore it is Yang. No argument about that. Where there must be mountain, XuanKong schools 玄空派 will advise you to build a building or to put heavy furniture. Where there must be water, XuanKong schools 玄空派 will advise you to build a water feature or to dig a pond. These are also among the pet methods of XuanKong DaGua 玄空大卦.
LOSHU ESTABLISHES DIRECT/INDIRECT 雒書定零正
The first approach – is a fixed pattern based on the LuoShu. It is also known as the Static Plate.
Generally, the LoShu is made out of period 1-9 having the period-5 in the centre. Collectively, period 1-4 is known as the Upper Cycle and period 6-9 is known as the Lower Cycle. What is deemed to be a place to see mountain in the Upper Cycle may change to be a place to see water in the Lower Cycle. The same is true for the place to see water in the Upper Cycle may change to be a place to see mountain in the Lower Cycle. This is called, FengShui forever changing… wonder when it will reach my turn 風水輪流轉, 何時到我家?
Specifically, in Period-8 the ZhengShen 正神 is in the NE-8 GenGua. Because in Period-8, Gen location is timely, therefore vibrant. Overly Yang will not produce. Therefore it cannot see water, which is Yang in nature. It must see mountain, which is Yin in nature. The opposite direction, SW-2 KunGua, is untimely and it is the LingShen 零神 where it should see water, which is Yang in nature to make it vibrant once more. The HeTu of 8 is 3, therefore E-3 is known as ZhaoShen 照神. Because it is untimely, it should see water, which is Yang in nature.
In layman terms, in Period-8 (2004-2024), NE will see prosperity. So much vibrant that the concentration of people will see development of high-rises of high densities in a cramp spaces. High densities and cramp spaces are the signifier of mountain. Because of over population, the opposite SW which is less vibrant would see people expanding outward occupying the “empty” space of SW. This is the signifier of water. The neighbor of SE which is E will also benefited from it – potential growth center, signifier of water. Based on this “layman terms”, do you still see mountain as mountain and water as water?
Wherever you see mountain it denotes, the prosperity has reached its pinnacle and in the progress of declining. Wherever you see water it denotes, the growth potential of that place is picking up and it is going to be the future development for that area. These are the 2 barometers in forecasting the timing of growth of a particular space in SanYuan space time continuum.
THE LITMUS TEST – KLANG VALLEY
Bolehland’s Kuala Lumpur’s prosperity is annexe to the Klang River. It flows from the northeast to the southwest. This river exits through the Klang harbour. Klang has been a town since the 14 century before the tin mining revolution. It was the capital of Selangor in an earlier era prior to the emergence of Kuala Lumpur and the current capital, Shah Alam.
The birth of Kuala Lumpur was due to the water mouth known to be the confluence of Gombak and Klang River as the growth catalyst through the 1820s. By 1950s Kuala Lumpur is already congested.
A new town called Petaling Jaya was born. Petaling Jaya became the satellite town of Kuala Lumpur, as an industrialised township. By 1960s Petaling Jaya itself is congested. More water mouths along the Klang River has been locked by then.
Fast-forward another 30 years, Shah Alam was born. It takes over Petaling Jaya as an industrialised township. Unfortunately Shah Alam has many water mouths unlock. In the midst of expansion, another town is created called Subang Jaya around 1970s, supporting Petaling Jaya. Therefore since the 1980s to 2000, growth centres had been slow reaching the western part of Shah Alam towards Klang itself.
THE PROOF OF THE PUDDING IS IN THE EATING
KL circa 1920s – Period-4. By 1950s Kuala Lumpur is already congested. In Period 5, for the first 10 years it follows Period-4. So, the first 10 years SE-4 would have been congested. SE of KL is Kajang. Unfortunately, Kajang has not been developed since! What about the next 10 years that follows Period-6, NW-6 would be congested? NW of KL is Sungai Buloh. This area is use to be the known as the town for the leprosy because of its seclusion… Reverse engineer, looking at the LingShen 零神, opposite of SE is NW and in fact, both are secluded areas. Sungai Buloh, now being part of PJ prosper around 2000s – Period-8.
PJ circa 1960s – Period 6. NW-6 should have been congested by then, SE-4 should have been the new growth centre. SE of PJ is Puchong and Sri Kembangan. It is true that urban spiralling has reached the SE of PJ, but this only happened in the 1990s when the ex-mining and dumpsite has been reclaimed. Instead it was Subang Jaya, SW of PJ that is booming during the 1970s.
SJ circa 1970s – Period 6. NW-6 should have been congested by then, SE-4 should have been the new growth centre. SE of SJ is Puchong and Sri Kembangan. It is true that urban spiralling has reached the SE of SJ, but this only happened in the 1990s, Period-7. Instead, the W part of PJ proper developed into SA.
SA circa 1990s – Period 7. W-7 should have been congested by then, E-3 should have been the new growth centre. E of SA is PJ, already a congested place.
PutarJaya circa 2000 – Period 8. NE-8 should have been congested by then, SW-2 should have been the new growth centre. SW of KL is Puchong and Sri Kembangan. Instead the government of Bolehland decided to move to PutarJaya which is the S of KL.
The application of Direct/Indirect Spirit or ZhenShen 正神. LingShen 零神. ZhaoShen 照神 based on the current understanding available in the market FAILED miserably in this litmus test. It is NEVER to be applied in this manner... Timeliness is also not meant to be applied in this manner...
The FORTUNE of a place is dependable on its WATER MOUTH. First – look at the water mouth! If it is locked – you PROSPER. If it is not lock – you PAUPER. Prosperity of a place, begins with the river – source of transportation. Where two rivers meet, people from different places would gathered and trade. Trade is the foundation of Prosperity. When trade occur, a market place will exist. Store houses will be built close to the water mouth. These are the “mountain locking the water mouth”. A market place would grow into town and eventually, city.
FengShui theories state, Heaven bestow; Earth receive. The source, stream and the water mouth are the “Blood Vein” of the land. The idea of a “Dragon” is referred to this “blood vein”. Whenever it is locked, a meridian will form. This place will prosper. Every Prosperity is not perpetual. The theory specify a cycle of JiaZi – a Yuan 元, where the 3 Cycles 9 Periods 三元九運 are derived. To be perpetual, the key is in – reactivation, similar to the application of BaZhai 八宅.
The true application of ZhenShen 正神. LingShen 零神. ZhaoShen 照神, are water mouth dependent. LoShu establish Direct Indirect 雒書定零正 already tell you this. LoShu 雒書 is the General Principle of the movements of Rivers. Again - such opens up to another argument called - the Dynamic Plate of ZhenShen 正神. LingShen 零神. This will be yet another story for another time.
OLD SPIRITS TASTE GOOD...
The Spirits Of Mutiara Damansara & Mount Kiara - 29112009
The way the landforms are being crafted with roads, by the days, is astonishing. Where there are roads, there are opportunities. Similarly with the notion of Ling and Zhen Shen or Direct and Indirect Spirit. Very much useful for site selection and to know when a site selected will actually boom. The following tales may knock some sense out of these spirits: -
Prior to 2000, an area known as Kota Damansara was actually called Sungai Buloh. Not a Soul would want to live at this area. Post 2004, saw a mega make over with the enclave of what is now known as Mutiara Damansara. This very location is a sunken landforms embraced by the incoming mountains originated all the ways from Rawang. This location is currently enjoying the boom that the period 8 has brought in exactly at the Southwest location of Kun.
Similarly, on the reverse side of the embrace, an area part of Mount Kiara witnessed the rises of the residential towers, so cluttered, it becomes the so called Direct Spirit. The location is Northeast, Gen. Not so much of commercialization activities at this very location as it is the fringe development radiated from the Mount Kiara town center.
This very case demonstrated that when period 8 comes in, Gen (Northeast) location is being too Yang, it cannot see water. What does it means as being too Yang? Seeing water means really seeing physical water? So this Yang location is called Direct spirit of period 8.
Opposite of period 8 is the Indirect spirit in the Kun (Southwest) location. Being too Yin, it must see water. Yet there is no physical water in Mutiara Damansara! And it is booming by the days. Why?
We have a series of mountain that virtually separate these two locations, not otherwise the highway called Penchala Link would not need to go through the tunnel to link the other sides. As the case demonstrated, where is the location of the center 5? Is there a smaller TaiQi within the larger one? Or a larger TaiQi within a smaller one? Is the water mouth for both areas are locked? Which area is conforming to the direct and indirect spirit and which area are not?
So, instead of putting the spirit in the bottle and be drunken for the whole days, lets keep sober and see things through a different lens. Perhaps we may spot on the spirits one day!
The Question Of Subtleties - 25112009
In view that SanYuan rested on timing. YinYang Qi map is the fundamental of where to locate water and where to locate mountain. All this is term direct and indirect spirit, LingZhen.
2 cycles 8 periods referred to the Heaven Qi. There are only upper and lower cycles. Upper cycle governs period 1, 2, 3 and 4. Lower cycle governs period 6, 7, 8 and 9. There is no period 5. In the 2 cycles 8 periods, each period governs an unequal number of years. Each Yang Yao within the ruling Gua governs 6 years and the Yin Yao within the ruling Gua governs 9 years. For example in the upper cycle of period 1, the governing Gua is Kan Gua. Kan Gua has 2 Yin Yao and 1 Yang Yao. Therefore, the period 1 will last for 24 years.
The absent of period 5 is called the invincible period. It is the igniting element that will propel the cure throughout the 180 years and therefore are known as The SanYuan BuBai. So highly mysterious that it is also annexed to the method of XieZi.
On the other hand, XuanKong DaGua (XKDG) is annexed to the 2 cycles 8 period principle. It is therefore, a Heaven Qi manipulation method befitted as a date selection technique.
Whereas, 3 cycles 9 periods referred to Earth Qi. There are Upper, Middle and Lower Cycles. Upper cycle governs period 1, 2 and 3. Middle cycle governs 4, 5 and 6. Lower cycle governs 7, 8 and 9. Each period governs an equal 20 years. Thus, a cycle consists of 60 years.
One postulation suggests that 5 yellow exist in earth Qi because the 5 yellow is the center of the earth with the operative method rested on AiXing, Leaning Star with the quest to move the center of the Earth in sync with the Heaven Qi.
The Purple White Script, ZiBai Jue, is one of the fragments dislocated from the entire body of knowledge within this SanYuan framework. Similarly so with XuanKong FeiXing (Flying Star), BaZhai (8 Mansions) and LongMen BaDa Ju (Dragon Gate 8 Formations), are just subsets of the entire framework. These piece-meals methods are called, end user methodology.
The pretext state, Heaven has 9 stars, Earth has 8 Gua and Human (Man) has 8 doors. If we see SanYuan as Heaven, Earth and Man, the valid method must encompass of matching the Heaven Qi with the Earth Qi to unlock the gateways within so that the parallel dimensions between the human realm and the supernatural realm is open. Does it sound “hocus-pocus”?
As above so below is an alternative view of how Heaven Qi influences the Earth Qi and in return, how Earth Qi influence Human Being. This postulation is annex to the asterism above influence the gravitational pull that result in having mountains, the solid and rivers, the void shape the landforms that we know today. This is however, a single dimensional point of view.
What that is not explained is at every point on Earth, there is a portal ready to be opened where scripts liked the leaning, expanding, contracting, hugging, replacement are all the essence to open up the portals so that an affinity with the other side is established.
The key to these, again, are the Yi TaiQi that spins in one direction in order to open the Dao TaiQi that spin the reverse order. This is where the understanding of landforms via LingZhen spirit becomes largely important and it is the backbone of the Greater SanYuan.
Ling and Zhen as a principle is static apply for both 2 cycles and 3 cycles respectively. But the dynamic part for Earth Qi is largely governed by landforms. If the theory of as above so below is valid, then the reflections of the landforms must correspond to the asterism as above. It must works in both ways. This is to inform that by plainly accepting XKDG as a date selection without looking the actual star that present and the governing Qi respectively, SanYuan portal will not be opened. This is where results are inconsistent as sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.
When we stacked the multi layers of SanYuan AiXing against the dimension of time with the arrangement of the doors, what is present to us is a stacking of multi-dimensional model, where stars lean against one another locking and unlocking the multi dimensional portals.
Is this mysterious subtleties?
Why My Spirits Cannot Work - 30062010
We came across the term – TaiJi spot. Others called it by many names such as Heaven’s Heart, center of the TaiJi or simply the threshold of Yin and Yang. In any circumstances it is the first layer of the many FengShui method of applications. Some called it arranging YinYang (Pai YinYang).Failure to establish such may results in the wrong applications of Direct/Indirect Spirits, the back bone of the huge SanYuan principles and arranging the dragons (Pai Long) for the SanHe principles. Forget about the method of establishing measurement using the LuoPan (LiPan) for the various methods if the fundamental of establishing the TaiJi spot is not first established. Next time when you play XuanKong FeiXing, DaGua and the sorts while busy measuring the facing and the sitting as in the tilt of the door, foot or headboard or even tomb stones, think about it – where is your TaiJi spot? The center of the 64 Gua or the center of your house?
Terry Gou 郭台銘 born October 8, 1950 is a Taiwanese tycoon who is the founder and chairman of Foxconn, a company that does contract manufacturing of electronics for other companies such as Apple Inc. It is the largest electronics manufacturing Services Company in the world, with factories in several countries, mostly in mainland China, where it employs 1.2 million people and is its largest exporter. Source - Wikipedia
Gou was born to a poor family where his father was just a career police officer. At one time, they were so poor that the entire family live in a temple 慈惠宮 nearby. Occupying a sanctum now known as the God of Wealth altar 五路財神殿, it was said that exactly that spot called the Toad Meridian 蟾蜍穴 is the FengShui meridian originated from the vein of BanJio Ling’s Family 板橋林家的龍脈 that has the capacity to produce tycoon. Terry Gou was lucky to have live there for almost a decade that the luck of his family begin to change for the better, therefore they move.
Gou’s father passed away at the ripe age of 80 and was buried in North Taiwan, village of SanXia, White Rooster Mount 台北縣三峽鎮白雞山區. White Rooster Mount 白雞山 comprises of 3 peaks – Deer Cave Peak 鹿窟尖, Rooster Shape Mount 雞罩山 and White Rooster Mount 白雞山. It was believed that this spot FengShui also benefited Gou.
Some information pertaining to the measurement of Gou’s Father Tomb, source GuoJia ZiChuang 國家之窗
Then the question come… who is the FengShui master behind the success of Gou?
THE ILLUSIVE FATHER AND SON FENGSHUI MASTERS - 福惠堂林金寶父子
This team of FengShui family shun publicity, the perfect candidate for most of the tycoon in Taiwan alike. Unlike their contemporary that pay heavily for advertisement and buy their ways to be media darling, this father and son team is so low profile that you don’t even notice that they actually existed. Their FengShui establishment is hidden within the alley that you need to observe closely to see their hall mark marked FuHui Tang 福惠堂. This FengShui outlet is formerly helmed by Master Lin ChunXiong 林春雄 (The Elder Lin) and now handed over to Master Lin JingBao 林金寶 (The Younger Lin). Collectively, they are responsible for the success of Gou’s industrial ventures.
Ever since, many other tycoons are hunting them down and strangely, another FengShui master by the name of Zhang QingYuan 张清渊 publicly disclosed that he is the legitimate FengShui master for Terry Gou 郭台铭御用风水师. Zhang QingYuan 张清渊 has since been very active in the media and FengShui circle within the non-Chinese speaking community too. He has written a so called – The World’s Numero-Uno Encyclopaedia of FengShui LiQi Book 天下第一风水理气大全. You may have a chance to learn from him…
There are always 2 sides to the truth. The genuine one would preferred to be extremely low profile while the others may opt for a more glamorous path such as calling themselves as – Public Figure… Have you ever wonder why?
OLD GLAMOROUS TEACHING OF PUBLIC FIGURE FENGSHUI MASTERS
Confession of an Instructor Part One - 01122008
I remembered a conversation I had with an instructor in the self acclaimed academy of Chinese Metaphysics in town; he admits that right up to this date, he has to teach all the redundant formulae laced in the module work book that it is almost worthless. I asked, if he doesn’t believe in the system why would he continue and silent was his only reply. He then said, if by all means he could help is to go beyond the system of the academy by affording others to be aware of these redundant formulae via other means, at least his Karmic effect would have been lessened. On such accord, it will be instrumental to share with the masses of what these redundant theories are all about. Hopefully, other good souls could also help to spread the “gospel” in light of the coming Armageddon for the ride by night academy.
The lesson on 8 mansions was a disgrace. Yet these proprietors had the cheek to lace it as advance 8 mansions by incorporating the system of NaJia, when the notion of NaJia had been grossly misinterpreted. The good thing is, this proprietor advocated the House Gua instead of the Ming Gua and at least husband and wife of different Gua group will not have to sleep in separate beds. Yet the confusions is so much that later on by the day, when the introduction of Shen’s Flying Star comes into the picture, trying to blend both methods result in disasters. Yet these proprietors have the cheek to find ways of consolidation beyond the means of natural order, seemingly force fitted and they re-brand it as whatsoever for life. Can one believe it?
The most fundamental of establishing sitting and facing is grossly erred. Stepping 3 feet behind, looking outward from the inside is ridicules, not in virtue of concept but in virtue of logic. The reasons of free from magnetic interference were absolute rubbish. All from the first lesson to the last were talking about establishing facing versus location, sitting versus facing with charts that does not fit into real life applications of the LuoPan. When it comes to measuring the bed, stove and the office desk, it will be a whole lot of display of whimsical fallacies, so force fitted that students at the end of the day will require purchasing a LuoPan, of inconsistent rings, that they are only taught to use the 24 mountain ring for everything below Heaven. How thoughtful and wise, after that, be called as a practitioner. Imagined, how many others will first be conned then insult in this manner.
For the rest of the course, one seemingly consistency is the lesson on Shen’s Flying Star was taught when, the academy, in fact, did not believe in it. I would strongly recommend the book written by a Singapore Teacher Practitioner called something liked, Fundamental of the Science of FengShui, which cost lesser then a real life course and loaded with better information on the lesson of Shen’s Flying Star methodology. In a nutshell, the course is worthless. To those who are Chinese literate, might as well read from the source book of Shen Si Xuan Kong Xue, in three volumes.
However, the highlight was the instructor, whom capitalized on the academy’s fame and marketing to provide private consultation beyond the charges of the founder proprietor himself, taking all opportunity of the class to first Con his potential client, then Insult them accordingly for seemingly private BaZi readings that cost a fortune to the unassumingly students of metaphysics, notably the well to do ones. Out of fear these students duly complied to his request that always end with an audit that cost a hefty price with seemingly no follow-up. As the local market is seemingly waned, the efforts to sell these courses are booming elsewhere in the western and southern part of the world, repeating its cycle once again, in full force.
Confession of an Instructor Part Two - 01122008
In Level 2: -
The lesson starts with the so-called 8 Killing forces at its most blatant serving, almost devoid of the fact that this is indeed a SanHe method best used with a SanYuan LuoPan, how insightful? It starts with the deliberation of incoming dragon from Kan cannot meet door facing at Chen, otherwise the occupants of the property will be dead. How convenience. Next, the applied version of a house sitting in Chen cannot see broken mountain in Kan. Same disaster will befall to the occupant of the property. How convincing. Nothing mentioned about the source of this method, keeping everyone in the dark. Next, in the higher level, it was revealed that it has a later and early heaven application. This is very refreshing for a SanHe method interpreted in a SanYuan ways, a very interesting point of departure.
Next, the 8 Roads of Destruction shared the same blatant serving, using the SanYuan LuoPan, very insightful. No discussion on the nature of this method as a derivative from more reliable sources. In the higher levels, when the assistant star water method was taught, students are more confused as in one method, water exit were auspicious and the others were not. So, which is right and which is wrong? Such inconsistency is obvious for the rest of the lessons, available or noticeable only by the initiated. By the time, one knew of the facts, it would be too late. Again, the graphical representations are not reflective of the way it is applied in real life. How could the student master the art?
Next, the peach blossom water, measuring incoming with the SanYuan LuoPan again. 3 Harmony roads indicating SanHe as the followings, if there is a mountain in Shen, house sitting in Zi and water exiting in Chen, then this will form the water frames of Shen Zi Chen, conforming to the SanHe principle, obviously a method to make millionaires. Same were to be applied indoor with tables, chairs and book selves. Don’t forget the aquarium! This is SanHe methodology using the SanYuan LuoPan.
Next, the TaiYang Dau Shan date selection for the mortification of SanSha, TaiSui and SuiPo. The assumption were based on when the sun arrive at the mountain, all the evils will be pacify. Question, what has SanSha, TaiSui and SuiPo being the stars of ShenSha method has to do with this method? Are these stars evil by its own nature? Is TaiYang Dau Shan a method for date selection? Think again?
Next, the 5 Ghost carry tidbits, using the SanYuan LuoPan. This is a derivation method, only being informed to the students when they had reached level 5, as being part of the FuXing XuiFa. Complicating it with NaJia, the application was served raw in piecemeal beyond recognition, implying the application for the external. None has any clue pertaining to its application in reality.
Next, a revisit of Shen’s Flying Star and more 8 mansions screwed up theories before calling it up for the day. No question shall be entertained as more revelation will come in the higher level and kindly register with the marketer just outside of the lecture room for early bird discount. That was the parting message. Formally concluded means, the informal business of ConSulting for the instructor begins. How convenience. After graduating, students are able to call themselves as advance practitioner. Very wise indeed.
Confession of an Instructor Part Three - 01122008
In level 3 and a half: -
The opening lessons are all recognizing of landforms and its terminology of which is obvious and are largely made available in Chinese book on the same topic. Walking the dragon via the projectors with half cooked imagery, the wises choice besides FengShui entourage.
The main dish of the days is the water method in SanHe. Now, students must buy the SanHe LuoPan. What is to be used of the SanYuan LuoPan, nobody knows. The most impressive of all is the SanHe 4 major water exits. There are basically 4 structures, of which water must not be outgoing from these directions and water must best come in from these directions. It is therefore paramount important to establish the following auspicious facing to tap into the water mouth which is equivalent to the road junctions. Facing is based on the gate, so tilting of gates is the norm of SanHe FengShui, just to receive water. Use this method together with the 72 dragon for measuring the quality of the Gaps, based on the HETU luck cycle with the selections only of the Bing, Ding, Geng and Xin stems for the rest is emptiness called turtle shell and squeezing emptiness, based on WenWang NaJia postulation. Interesting hypothesis indeed. These are all fallacies.
The sub-dishes are nothing but the introduction of mountain method notably of LaiGong’s human plate, measuring and divination of the embrace, determine the quality of the veins and spots using the 60 dragons, taught in half heartedly without dwelling in the basics of how would such 60 dragons be established from the outer to the inner rings of the LuoPan. A brushing encounter of the 3 auspicious 6 elegance method of embrace for the evaluation of the vicinity, as a standalone technique devoid of the water method, classify as SanHe and solely squeeze into the 24 mountain Earth plate of the SanHe LuoPan. These are also fallacies.
Again, upon graduation, one is entitled to be called; super advance practitioner and God bless all. Until such, no clue whatsoever of taking a sitting and a facing the SanHe method. This time around, the instructor has no time to answer question let alone do any sideline income from the students.
