Flying Star Feng Shui Case Studies (2) – Feng Shui for Fame [Master Class 30]

Last week we have seen two cases of the use of Flying Star Feng Shui to hit wealth generation goals.  The Feng Shui masters behind these two cases were very smart, they not only found the best locations for entrances of the shops, but also make very good use of the external environment such as road intersections.  Read these cases carefully if you haven’t, I’m sure that you could learn a great deal of of them.

This week we gonna learn from some new cases.  Instead of making money, could Feng Shui help people to achieve other goals?  From the cases reviewed below you will know what else Feng Shui could do to bring fame and popularity.

FAME

 

Case 1 – Feng Shui for Fame for a Religion Center

This is a very special case.  It does not concern money but fame, which is not the most wanted goal that people would use Feng Shui to achieve.  And more interestingly, the subject building was occupied by a non-profit-making organization.  It’s a Buddhism education canter in Shanghai, China.

The building was built in the Fourth Period.  The occupier was a Buddhism education center operated by Mr. Lin who was a “Householder”, i.e. non-monastic.  The center located in a busy region in Shanghai, near a street named Xin Min Road.  It was one of the most popular Buddhism education center at that time.  The seminars held by Mr. Lin was always full.  After analyzing the Feng Shui of this center, we would know what contributed to the popularity of it.

Below is the Flying Star Map of this center.

Fame Flying Star Feng Shui Case 1

Geographically, there was a main entrance in the Southeast and one side entrance in the North of the center.  These entrances played very significant role in the Feng Shui of the center.

Firstly, the main entrance.  It was located in Southeast, a location where there are two Flying Star 4 in the same direction.  Flying Star 4 is a very good star for fame, study and job promotion.  In this case, the existence of two Flying Star 4 doubles the positive effects, so the education became very famous and popular.

Secondly, the side entrance.  It was located in North where we could find a Flying Star 1 as the Mountain Star.  Flying Star 1 is related to relationship.  With a Flying Star 1 in the entrance, the positive energy of this Star could flow into the education center.  The end result was high popularity of the center (because people liked this center, consider it kind of customer relationship).

Flying Star Feng Shui Case Studies (1) [Master Class 29]

Welcome back to the Feng Shui Master Class.  In the last 28 weeks, i.e. 7 months, we have learnt the essence of Form Feng Shui, Ba Gua Feng Shui and Flying Star Feng Shui.  The information provided in these classes is much more than many other Feng Shui books or tutorials you can find online.  If you have been paying attention to all the information provided in these classes, you should be able to regard yourself as a Feng Shui practitioner already, you know much more than many Feng Shui do-ers out there.

But “to know” is different from “to be able to”.  A person who have read all Wikipedia pages (if such person could ever exists) is not necessarily the more powerful problem-solver on earth.  He must know how to apply his knowledge.  This is the objective of our coming lessons.

Starting this week, we will see many real Feng Shui cases.  These cases happened in different times, as old as in early 20th century to as new as recent years.  The topics covered include health, fame, wealth, study, etc.  From these cases, you will see how Feng Shui could be applied in different scenarios, and how Feng Shui should be used “flexibly”.  Although you may not have the chance to practice Feng Shui everyday like a pro, from these cases you can nevertheless step in the shoes of Feng Shui masters and think how Feng Shui theories could be translated into real strategies to implement.

 

Case (1) – Thriving Business with Jewelry Orientation

This case happened in Shanghai, China, in the 3rd Period (from 1904 to 1923).  The concerned building was occupied by a shop that sold candles (at that time candles were the major tool for illumination, candle production was a big business).  In this Period, the prevailing Flying Star was 3, followed by 4 and 5.

The orientation of this building was Mountain Xu Facing Chen (坐戌向辰 in Chinese), i.e. Facing Southeast Backing Northwest.  The Flying Star Map looked like this:

Jewelry Orientation Feng Shui Case StudyThere are a few geographical features I need to state here.  The entrances of the shop were in Northeast and Southeast east.  There was a road intersection in East, where three roads met each other.  That intersection was very busy with thousands of people passing by everyday.

How would you analyse this case, if you were the Feng Shui Master hired to offer advice?

Feng Shui for Specific Goals (3) – Tips for Getting Pregnant [Master Class 28]

The topic of this lesson is quite interesting.  While most people believe that Feng Shui could help on bringing health, wealth, career and relationship, most people don’t believe that Feng Shui also could affect people’s chance of getting pregnant.  When talking about increasing the chance of pregnancy, most people would turn to medical advice.  It seems that consulting a doctor is way more reliable than consulting a Feng Shui master.

But yes there are really ways to “help” to do so.  I said “help”, because Feng Shui is not almighty after all.  Feng Shui could enhance the chance but cannot control it.  There are many other factors that influence the chance of people conceiving a baby.

So what exactly is the method to “help”?  Remember in Flying Star Feng Shui we use the Mountain Star to bring health?  In fact, Mountain Star governs not only health but also “family”, i.e. how many babies a family have and how healthy the second generation is.  So the basic principle is to utilize the prevailing Mountain Star.

Apart from the prevailing Mountain Star, the Flying Star 9 is also a tool we could use.  Remember Flying Star 9 governs happiness things?  No matter marriage, new baby… all happy events are controlled by this Star.  If we could smartly leverage this Star, we could add to the chance of getting pregnant.

The basic principle is here, let’s see how we could do it!

Feng Shui Tips for Conceiving a Baby

 

Sleep in the Right Direction

I don’t think I need to explain how important the bed is to conceiving a baby.  For the selection of bed, I think you can easily find a lot of references on the internet on interior design, sizing and material of the bed, etc.

 

Flying Star

In this Feng Shui class, what I would like to share about the location of the bed.  Firstly, you should always avoid directions where the sickness Flying Stars are located.  In other words, Flying Stars 2 and 5 are what you should avoid.

Feng Shui for Specific Goals (2) – Love & Relationship [Master Class 27]

It’s Feng Shui time again!  Last week we have seen what Feng Shui measures could be done to bring better luck in study and career.  This week we move on to the next goal, which is one many people want to achieve.

In Chinese Feng Shui, Tao Hua (桃花 in Chinese) Star is what controls relationship.  Here relationship means love, but it does not only relate to love, it also means the relationship between people, say, the relationship between friends, colleagues, family members, etc.  It could even mean how good you get along with a stranger.

Relationship is an important sector of Feng Shui which is getting more and more attention.  It is quite common that clients come to a Feng Shui master and ask for help to find a boyfriend or get married.  It is also usual for Feng Shui masters be summoned to help to improve relationship in the workplace.  So once you mastered the skills I deliver in this lesson, you have actually opened the door to many possibilities in Feng Shui practice.

It should be noted that Feng Shui does not and cannot guarantee that you find your white knight or princess, it simply means you have higher chance to do so.  apart from Feng Shui, your own fate and your personality also affects the end result.

Feng Shui Vase for Relationship

 

Tao Hua as in Flying Star Feng Shui

The Flying Star 1 is the major Flying Star that governs relationship.  When asked to do Flying Star Feng Shui for relationship, most masters would focus on how to make this Flying Star work.  The following combinations are those that affect relationship.

Feng Shui for Specific Goals (1) – Study & Promotion [Master Class 26]

Welcome back to the Feng Shui Master Class.  In the past few weeks we have learnt how to interpret the effects of any two Flying Stars combined.  Please be reminded that what I taught are theories only, you really need to practice and apply the rules to different real life situations, so that you could really appreciate the effects of each combination.

If you are detail minded enough, you would notice that most of our discussions in the past few weeks were focused on health and wealth.  This is not without reasons.

Firstly, the Mountain Star and Water Star are meant to represent health and wealth respectively according to Flying Star Feng Shui.  It follows naturally that these two are the major goals of Flying Star Feng Shui.

Secondly, Chinese in the past were very concerned about these two matters.  They believes that once both goals are achieved, they live a complete and happy life.  This is why Chinese Feng Shui has been so concentrated on health and wealth.

However, in modern days things are quite different.  We certainly care about our health and how much money we make, but these are never the only goals.  If Feng Shui is only effective for bringing health and wealth, it would not be so fascinating.  Of course, Feng Shui is definitely not almighty, but it can be very powerful if you know how to use it properly.

So, starting from this week, we will look at how Feng Shui could help us to achieve goals not directly related to health and wealth.  I said “not directly related”, because some goals do need good health or money to be reached.  We shall see more examples soon.

This week we shall look at ways to facilitate children’s study and our job promotion in the workplace.

 

Double Star Combinations for Study & Job Promotion

Among all double star combinations there are a few that are good for study and career.  Let’s go through them one by one.

 

1 – 1

When both Mountain and Water Stars are 1, this combination means intelligence, which is definitely good for children.  If luckily your house has a direction where both stars are 1, you should definitely move your children’s desks to this corner.

This combination also has another effect of bringing good interpersonal relationship.  So for those who work in the office, it would be great if your own room or desk is located in a direction within the office where the 1 – 1 stars are situated.

2013 Monthly Feng Shui Cures – July

It’s the middle of the Year of Snake.  Half of the year has completed.  Are you satisfied with your life in the first half of the year?  If your answer is yes, congratulations.  If unfortunately your answer is no, this article may offer you a helping hand.  Here I provided some practical Feng Shui settings that are designed to make use of the Yearly and Monthly Flying Stars.  Follow these instructions to get the best out of the good stars and avoid the bad effects of the bad stars.

The Feng Shui cures below are valid for the period of 7 July to 7 August. 

 

July Feng Shui Cures

 

East

This is a direction where both the Monthly and Yearly Flying Stars have “wood” characteristic.  This is favorable to study, examination and job advancement.  But this combination also has a side effect of more disputes and conflicts with other people.

To maximize the advantages, you should place a glass of water in this direction.  On the other hand, to reduce the exposure to disputes, you should place something in red or pink here.

 

Southeast

The Yearly Flying Star is “wood” while the monthly Flying Star is “earth”, the struggle between wood and earth would lead to the outbreak of sickness.  If the main entrance or bedroom is located in this direction, it is likely that the occupiers would have sickness in this month.  A simple solution is to place a metallic music box here and make it sound often.

 

South

The Monthly Flying Star 1 conflicts with the Yearly Flying Star 9.  When there is a water – fire struggle like this, you’d better place a plant here, to use the “wood” to neutralize problem.

Interpretation of Double Stars (3) [Master Class 25]

After learning how to interpret the meanings of 45 double star combinations in the last two lessons, we come to the final week of double star interpretation.  In this lesson we will learn how to read the combinations beginning with Flying Stars 6, 7, 8 and 9.

We have 36 combinations to go through in this single lesson, so this will be a busy week.  But before we go into the details of these combinations, I shall address an issue raised by a student.  He asked whether these double star combinations could only be used to interpret the Mountain and Water Stars.

 

Double Stars in a Box

Usually when Feng Shui masters teach Double Stars Interpretation, they simply tell the students to use the interpretations on Mountain and Water Stars.  In fact, these interpretation are not confined to these two Stars.

I came across many cases when we use these interpretations to find out the relationship of the current month/year’s Flying Star in a box and the Mountain/Water Star in the same box.  It is quite usual that, due to the coming of a bad Monthly Flying Star, the Mountain Star is adversely affected and consequently the occupiers’ health is also affected.  We find out these relationships by applying these interpretations to any two Stars in a box.

So, the answer to this question is no, you do not limit yourself to the Mountain and Water Stars.  However, in the early stage we usually do not encourage students to go too far.  As your experience grows you would be able to apply all the techniques freely like a master.  For now, let’s just assume the method of interpreting double stars is used for the Mountain/Water combo only.

Interpretation of Double Stars (2) [Master Class 24]

Welcome back to Feng Shui Master Class, this is the second lesson for the interpretation of double stars. Last week, we have covered two groups of double star combinations, i.e. those beginning with Flying Stars 1 and 2.

From last week’s content, you could probably find out that there are some common features in different combinations.  For example, all combinations beginning with Flying Star 1 are more or less related to study, job promotion and fame.  Those beginning with Flying Star 2 have something related to real estate and female in the family.

These are not coincidences.  Each Flying Star has its own properties and effects.  Flying Star 2 really relate to real estate.  By studying its relationship of the other Flying Star in the combination,  we could predict what effects would be generated.

One typical example is the combination of 2 – 5, which means the Mountain Star is 2 and Water Star is 5.  Since both stars are sickness stars, when both stars are present we could easily tell how serious the bad effect to health could be.

After all, Flying Star Feng Shui is a kind of mathematics.  It is not a religion, there are principles and rules governing it.  Next time, if somebody questions Feng Shui, you can tell him how serious the calculation is!

Now, let’s go back to this week’s content.  We shall learn the effects of some other combinations.

Interpretation of Double Stars (1) [Master Class 23]

Welcome back to Feng Shui Master Class, in this week we shall begin to learn the interpretation of double stars.  Here, the term “double stars” carries a different meaning from the one we have seen in the last two lessons about “Double Stars to Mountain/Water”.  The “double stars” here simply means any two stars in a given direction in a Flying Star Map.

In Flying Star Feng Shui, there are some typical scenarios with special effects.  We have covered the most common four cases, namely the Jewelry Line, the opposite to Jewelry Line, Double Stars to Water and Double Stars to Mountain.  In the real world, these case are only a fraction of all possible situations.  There are many more cases not falling into any one of these four.  How do we interpret the Feng Shui in these cases?

The tips I gave at the end of the last lesson are the basic steps all Feng Shui masters take but they are not exhaustive.  Starting this lesson we shall learn the other ways to interpret a Flying Star Map, even it does not fall into any one of the special categories.

 

Interpreting the Double Stars

Remember there are three stars in every box in Flying Star Map?  There are two on top, which are the Mountain and Water Stars, and one at the bottom which is the Period (Yun) Star.  Below is a typical Flying Star Map.

Flying Star Map Illustrated

When interpreting a Flying Star Map, we examine the interactions between the stars in the same box, and sometimes across different boxes (we may also add a fourth star, the current year’s Star, but let’s talk about this later).  “Double Stars Interpretation” is the way we analyse the relationship between any two of the three stars in a box.  For most of the time, this method is used to interpret the Mountain and Water Stars (the two stars on top), but occasionally we apply the same principles between the Period Star and either one of the two stars on the top.

The rationale behind the analysis is the interactions of the five elements.  For example, if the Mountain Star has a “Fire” characteristic and the Water Star is of “Earth”, we say that the Mountain Star is good for the Water Star (“Fire” generates “Earth”).  So the Water Star is benefited.  The effects of the Water Star would be magnified.

On the other hand, if the two stars are in conflict, we shall see which one is being attacked by which.  For example, if the Mountain Star is weaker in a given situation, and that Mountain Star represents the eyes, blood vessel and heart in this situation, then it may mean that the occupiers of this house may suffer from problems in these parts of the body.

 

Status of the Stars

Another factor that influences the result of the interpretation is whether the stars are prevailing.  For example, if both stars are 8 then the situation is good during the Eighth Period.  However, the same 8-8 combination would be bad in the First Period, because in the First Period Flying Star 8 has already losen its positive power.

So when you read the interpretations below, you could see in many cases I tell you the effects in both the prevailing and non-prevailing situations.  Depending on the current Period, the same Flying Star combination may result in totally different interpretations.

Double Stars to Water – Good Wealth Bad Health [Master Class 22]

Last week we studied a scenario, Double Stars to Mountain, it follows naturally we learn the opposite of it, the Double Stars to Water scenario.  If you understand the Double Stars to Mountain case well enough, you should not have any difficulty to understand Double Stars to Water and what effects it brings.

Double Stars to Water, same as Double Stars to Mountain, is an important concept to know when studying Flying Star Feng Shui.  Not only because you may come across these orientations easily when doing Feng Shui, but also since the principle behind is applicable to other orientations as well.  In the last part of this lesson, I will explain in more detail how you could use the prevailing water and mountain stars for all kinds of Flying Star Maps.  Even for a house not having Jewelry Orientation, the opposite to Jewelry, Double Stars to Mountain or Double Stars to Water orientations, the same principles could be used.

 

Double Stars to Water, What is It?

So, what the xxx is Double Stars to Water?

Below is the Flying Star Map I took out last week to explain what Double Stars to Mountain is.

Double Stars to Mountain

And below is an example of Double Stars to Water.  Do you see the difference?

Double Stars to Water

Try to compare the Stars in the blue and red circle and the location of the blue arrow and the red “T”.  Could you find anything special?

2013 Monthly Feng Shui Cures – June

June has come!  Time to have new Feng Shui cures for your home!

Yes, Feng Shui is not static.  It changes every year, month and day.  Even if you have followed my instructions in the Feng Shui 2013 free e-book, you are advised to slightly adjust the Feng Shui settings at home / office every month for the best protection and luck.

This is why I have this monthly Feng Shui cures column in this blog.  Simply follow the guidelines below, you could keep the Feng Shui setting of your home/office up to date.

The following Feng Shui cures are valid from 5 June to 7 July 2013, according to the Feng Shui month.  This is why the duration is not the same as a Gregorian month.

Feng Shui Almanac

June Feng Shui Cures

 

East

There is a Flying Star 3 here for this whole year, while in this month the Flying Star 5 comes.  The latter is a sickness Flying Star and the Flying Stars are not compatible.  If the main entrance of your home or the bed is located in the East, you should place a metallic music box here and make it sound often to reduce the adverse effect of the sickness Flying Star.

 

Southeast

There is a conflict of “metal” and “wood” here due to the co-location of Flying Stars 4 and 6.  You should place a glass of water or a steady water feature here.  Do not put a dynamic water feature such as a water fountain with running water.

 

South

The monthly Flying Star 2, which is a sickness star, is boosted by the yearly Flying Star 9.  So if your home’s entrance door or bed room is in this corner, you should place a metallic music box and a glass of water here.

 

Southwest

Unfortunately Southwest is also not a good direction, because the yearly sickness star is attacked by the monthly Flying Star 4.  You should place a metallic music box here and make it sound often.

 

West

This direction is not good for lung, stomach, throat and respiratory system in this month, if possible please place eight white pebbles here.

 

Northwest

Finally there is a good direction!  Northwest is a direction good for wealth growth in this month since the yearly wealth star is supported by the monthly Flying Star 8. If possible, stay in this corner to make any money-related decisions such as buying stocks.  It would be even great if the main entrance door is here.

 

North

You should place something red in this direction in this month, since the conflict of two Flying Stars may cause interpersonal disputes.

 

Northeast

The struggle of “water” and “earth” is not favorable to the kidney and urinary system.  Avoid sleeping in this direction in the house.  If possible, place a metallic music box here to cure.

 

Center

To center is the big sickness location in this year.  Luckily, this month’s Flying Star 7 comes to here to help to reduce the bad effects.  To further reduce the negative energy, place glass of water here.

Double Stars to Mountain – Good Health Bad Wealth [Master Class 21]

Welcome back to the Feng Shui Master Class, this time we shall study another Flying Star combination, the Double Stars to Mountain scenario.

In the last two weeks we have examined two combinations, the Jewelry Orientations and the opposite, which are extremely good and bad orientations.  After studying the two extremes, let us talk about things in the middle, i.e. orientations that are not bad but not to be called excellent.  These are orientations with advantages as well as drawbacks.

And the end of this lesson, I’ll also provide the Flying Star Maps for all 24 orientations x 2 Periods, the 3rd and 4th Periods, totally 48 Flying Star Maps.  Again, they are exclusively available to Master Class members only.  Join now if you haven’t to enjoy many exclusive contents!

 

What is “Double Stars to Mountain”?

In the last two lessons we have seen scenarios in where the prevailing Mountain Star and prevailing Water (Facing) Star are in opposite boxes (directions).  Such as in the below case, the red and blue circles denote the prevailing Mountain Star and prevailing Water Star respectively.

Mountain-Facing-Good-Stars

“Double Stars” scenarios are cases where both the prevailing Mountain Star and prevailing Water Star are in the same box.  The two stars are co-located in the same direction.  Below is a Flying Star Map of such case for a building built in the 7th Period.  Two Flying Star 7 are in the Mountain direction.
