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?
