Especially my finances. My email is [email protected]
. Thank you.
Hi, I only got to read your OP today. I hope things have improved for you all round by now.
A total dependence on FS would amount to a drowning man cathching at a straw. There's no guarantee of success either with the FS or with the particular xian sheng.
Is Feng Shui science or superstition?
Try to get The Living Earth Manual of Feng Shui by Stephen Skinner if you're an English reader,( published by Routledge and Kegan Paul, London 1982. )
He writes from an indepth knoweldge of the subject, using sources as wide as Sir J. Needham,( prof emeritus of Science, Cambridge uni ) the great masters in HK and Taiwan and classical sources based on the two main schools - the Compass School and the Form School.
You should be able to get excellent Feng Shui books from HK, Taiwan or even SG in Chinese.
According to Skinner, 'geomancy' is a misnomer for feng shui as that is more properly related to the Arab form of divinatio that spread to Europe and Africa. Originally, FS evolved as di li - geography of physical landscap studies, and was developed by the Compass school into an 'astro-ecology' science after the discovery of the lode stone and the first compass. It's also related to the Chinese science of applied cosmology - a study made by Skinner from Chinse and scientific sources, including that of the Jesuits.
The basics of FS are -
Feng = wind, qi, yang, movement
Shui = water, flowing or stillness, yin
Real FS embraces the earth's magnetic forces and the sky's terrestrial forces ( qi ) which is part of our own qi. The two schools above practise their FS with details made to the elements ( wind, water, wood, air, fire, earth ), the cosmology, the plates under the earth's crust, the time and date of your birth and the surrounding environment etc. So if you're looking for the FS master, you need to see if he uses such sources.
Basically, FS is about accumulating the amount of qi and not dispersing it. You need to cultivate a feel for the 'dragon' or energy source and align with it. Then you need to make sure the qi is trapped rather dispersed e.g. do ot place mirrors where the sun shines on as that disperses the energy outside. Daoists get up at 5 in the morning to practise their qi kung and Dai Qi Chuan as that's the time when the terrestrial energy is most magnetically drawn.
The few facts about FS that I know. It's a complex science of sensing the source of enegry, its movements and balancing it to 'unblock' negativities e.g. dampness, trapped wind etc inside the body or in the environment.
Some of SF degrade into gross superstitions. So one has to be careful it's a real ( though invisible) 'qi' - you can actually feel that in your body when a good accupuncturist inserts the needles at the acurate points to unblock the trapped qi within.
So do some research and take stock of what it all amounts to before you place your trust in any sin seh. It's a time when you need to know yourself and analyse with a calm mind, where things have gone wrong. Primarily, you need to be in control of yourself and not fall into pieces. Hold on to what's good and let go of the bad.
It's too easy to suspect your house is the problem. If it is, make some changes to improve access for the qi to move in and then get the qi flowing in your house rather than disperse elsewhere.
Wishing you good fung shui.
