YUAN GUA 元卦
Learnt that in Australia there is a revival of another form of SanYuan method. This is called YuanGua 元卦 method. Claimed to have been from the pedigree of GanZhou under the lineage of Liu JingDong, one of the first generation of disciple of Yang YunSong. For more historical account of him, read ‘here’. What is interesting of the claim from this lineage is, they are the only ‘family’ that is allowed to teach the ‘genuine YangGong’ FengShui method to outsiders. Very ‘fishy claim’. The other interesting part of the story is, the ‘transmission of knowledge’ was intact since the ‘cultural revolution’. A good point to ponder, as to how much has really left? Anyway, the ‘lineage holder’ is only allowed to teach the first of three parts within the entire knowledge for mass consumption.
It was said that YuanGua 元卦 provides:
YuanGua 元卦 pays heavy emphasis on water mouth 水口, instead of dragon 龍.So far this is ‘agreeable’ compared to the ‘mass consumption knowledge’ of SanHe. When the period is ‘prosper’ and the prosperous ‘star’ is in the water mouth sector, the entire area will not be prosperous. This is because the prosperity is being ‘flushed out’. YuanGua 元卦 measures period based on the LoShu 洛書內丹盤. Quoting instances as in Melbourne, during period 2 there was a massive depression. In Sydney, during period 4 almost the same time the Sydney Opera House was built, another massive depression hit Sydney. Unfortunately this is not always true, for other cases. You can always do a ‘reverse engineering’ to proof this point.
YuanGua 元卦 pays heavy emphasis of immediate landform to Eight Killing 八煞黃泉. This method has been prescribed ‘here’. The only catch here is, YuanGua 元卦 defines, ‘fake’ and ‘real’ Eight Killing 八煞黃泉. This is ‘real’ Eight Killing 八煞黃泉 when conform will ‘screw up your FengShui’ big time, either in health 丁 via Eight Killing 八煞 or in wealth 財 via Yellow Spring 黃泉.There is an undisclosed way of determining this but in landform 形 itself it is very easy to strike this unlucky formation, especially in ‘terrace houses’.
To illustrate this point, Eight Killing 八煞黃泉 will be activated once water is incoming 45 degree of your main gate relative to your main door. In normal situation, it will always be either to the left 龍 or the right side 虎. The chances are 50-50. If you strike the ‘real’, too bad. If you strike the ‘fake’, congratulations!
So, what are the ‘fake’ Eight Killing 八煞黃泉?
SIMA WATER METHOD 司马水法
YuanGua 元卦 borrows from SiMa the Monk Water Method 司马头陀水法:
Is kind of a cool, to belong to a lineage. There are plenty of lineages for sales in GanZhou, GuangXi. You take a stone and throw, almost anybody got hit is a lineage holder of GuangXi YangGong FengShui especially central within the descendants of Yang楊, Zheng曾, Liao廖 and Liu劉. This is where people says, abusing lineage rocks become lineage sucks!
The Liu劉 method has been largely available in the masses covering all the ‘popular theories’ from the Taiwanese styles SanHe to the HonKee styled QMDJ. The YangGong ‘old method’ school prescribed that these were watered down methodologies.
The late LDX has a point, especially when you reworked the YangGong methods against the Eight Killing 八煞黃泉, one will notice that when YangGong methods are in place, Eight Killing has been automatically taken care of. SiMa Water Method 司马头陀水法 is only an extension to the YangGong methods.
The YiGua 64 Hexagram is not only represented in 2D. Many ‘scholars’ of the YiJing had attempted to describe the 64 Hexagram of YiGua into 3D. But what exactly would you want to achieve by such permutation in 3D?
For one, YiGlobe tends to prescribed, “If the hexagrams of the I Ching are arranged in the space between the Creative and the Receptive according to the laws of change – and following the principles of symmetry and balance – a sphere will be produced. This sphere represents the whole universe, similarly to other circular and spherical symbols found in the myths. This is the Yi-globe.” Well, in other words, “sphere represents the whole universe, similarly to other circular and spherical symbols found in the myths” is like telling you “I know nuts about what I talking about.”
For another, Nassim attempted to give meaning to the YiGua into his model of the universe, torus by relying on ‘artificial assumption’ based on writings in the internet. He is close, but not yet there… The ‘torus’ model showing one, uplift motion corresponding to another downward motions can represent how Qi spiral, thus the figure ‘8’ of the Early Heaven BaGua. Truly, how was these derived?
For the proponent of SanYuan DaGua SYDG 三元大卦 (Not XuanKong DaGua XKDG, as they know nuts about these), this 3D models attempt to ‘categorise’ the family, its usage, its efficacy and last but not least, its ‘effect’ of how an application of the Early Heaven principle be represented in the Later Heaven arrangement to be applied via its Middle Heaven application.
Yes, you read it correctly, Early-Later-Middle. The magic is vested in the ‘Mid Heaven Gua’. That can be rationalise in this 3D model. Surprising, this is exactly how, olden day master teach this 3D of ‘hyperspace’ to their students, way way back before we have developed the branch of physics called, string an m-theories. Hey, who says our ancestors are human? They are alien…
I will not go into ‘nitty gritty’ of illustrating how this 3D is assemble, but just give a teaser as to what the outlook is… You construct ‘A’ you get ‘B’ and you distil ‘C’… This again, is not ‘lineage secret’ but many schools did not know such fundamental. If only they know, they will ‘discard’ XKDG in favour of SYDG. This is also where your ‘application’ of BaZhai is derived from. Happy hunting…
