NAKED EYE 長眼法 AT A GLANCE
You may have heard about a technique called – Naked Eye Method 長眼法. This Form School 形家 YinYang Methodology 陰陽法 enable a practitioner to determine the auspiciousness 吉 or calamity 凶 of a site without the use of LuoPan 羅盤 by employing Dragon 龍, Tiger 虎, Phoenix雀 and Turtle 武 to evaluate landform and uses form 形 to remedy any shortcoming.
According to one school founded in Taiwan by the Mud Eel Master 泥鳅師, it has nothing to do with Qi flow 氣流法 and it is a standalone technique. However, one LiuFa 六法 school claimed otherwise that it is originated from a fixed Gua 定卦 perspective and Mud Eel Master 泥鳅師 school only have divination technique 斷絕 and did not have the Yi principle 易理, therefore not a complete transmission.
In fact, both the Mud Eel Master 泥鳅師 and LiuFa 六法 school incorporated this technique once called YangGong’s 楊公 Heavenly Heart Methodology 十道天心法 that uses the Cross Line 十道 reference of a human body 人體 as a mean to measure landform 形家 with the aid of a walking stick 長. That is where the name Naked Eye Method 長眼法 comes about.
Unlike the Golden Lock Jade Portal 金鎖玉關, it does not really based on the entire eight trigram 八卦 and LoShu 洛書. Instead it is based on the Four Imagery 四象, YinYang 陰陽 and HeTu 河圖 numerology. Therefore it is sometimes called Four Imagery YinYang Techniques 四象陰陽法.
Coupled with Passerby YinYang 過路陰陽 that has a close proximities to XuanKong Gua 玄空卦, Naked Eye Method 長眼法 can be incorporated with the permutation of the eight trigram 八卦 to determine Who, When and How an event would occur based on landform.

Zheng QingFeng 鄭清風, as a young turd has been spending his youth in the mountain attending to goats and cows and having the affinity to meet this Monk Master 和尚師, that was famed to have been following the retinue of Chiang KaiShek 蔣介石 at that time, defeated by the Communist to retreat to Taiwan. In a sunny morning Monk Master 和尚師 has taught Zheng QingFeng 鄭清風 the art of Naked Eye Method 長眼法 through the various burial grounds around that area. With confident, the young Zheng QingFeng 鄭清風 approached other masters that have been dotting graves around the area, while providing accurate and sharp predictions to the many grave sites, he managed to carve his name in the industry at his time. He was later known as Snail Master 泥鮴師 owing to his casual habits of catching eels in the countryside. This school was survived by the current contemporary lineage holder in Taiwan and due to the quick nature of summing up the FengShui of a grave or a premise, it was widespread through Singapore, Malaysia but not HongKong, surprisingly.
