To the average person, a Feng Shui luopan looks complicated and mysterious.  Many cartoons and TV series have used luopan as a magical tool with mysterious power.

In reality, a luopan is just an embellished compass with a big movable dial. It’s primary function, similar to a regular compass, is to measure directions.

Besides creating a “mysterious look” and measuring directions for the Feng Shui masters, luopan serves other functions that you may not have heard before.

Luopan as ghost detector

When you see your luopan needle go nuts or magnetic polarities totally reversed during a Feng Shui audit, it could be a sign of ghost or spirit in the area.  Ghost is a form of yin magnetic energy.  Sometimes the disturbance to your luopan needle is so severe that it knocks out the needle and the luopan stops functioning (and you kiss a few hundred US$ goodbye OR read my article on how to regenerate a luopan hidden somewhere in this blog or other online discussion list).

Ghosts dislike luopan because the symbols there remind them of the time dimension, which is unpleasant for them.  So you may use a luopan as a tool to drive ghosts away.  Better still, you run away first to save your luopan from magnetic damage!

The pix on the left shows Master Sezto Fa-zheng had used a luopan as ghost-detector and a mini-coffin to catch a ghost inside a haunted casino.

Luopan as your door guard

Some people put a luopan on top of their front door to block out negative energy. 10 years ago I saw a Chinese supermarket in Sacramento (California) put a 2 feet long luopan on top of its front entrance!  That was a huge (and expensive) luopan!

Using a luopan to raise the auspicious energy level of a house

Houses with waning energy or qi can use a luopan to raise its auspicious or wealth energy (methods listed in my “Practical Date-Selection Course“).

Using a luopan to change the direction of a house

This is a Qi-Men-Dun-Jia trick.

Using a luopan to lock in auspicious timing

This is also a Qi-Men-Dun-Jia trick.

Using a luopan as “metaphysical contraceptive”

Today is your lucky day– here is the formula.  Simply put a luopan in your bedroom and it will decrease your chance of conception greatly. (Note:  Make sure you don’t block the “entrance” with the luopan. No refund or returns if you still somehow manage to made a baby).

Luopan as Feng Shui aspirin for negative form energies

Black Hat Feng Shui is well-known for using crystals as their Feng Shui aspirin.  Some masters in Taiwan and China use luopans instead.  They advise clients to place a luopan facing any sha energy like T-junction, wall-knife and the likes to fix the sha qi problem.

Using a luopan as a weapon

Yes, I literally mean a weapon– minimum size one foot in diameter.  You can do some serious damages to whoever attacking you by hitting him/her with the corner or edge of a luopan.  However, it is much cheaper and more efficient by getting a bottle of beer–  drink the beer and use the bottle to do the trick.

What do a circus and a Feng Shui practitioner have in common?   They are both evaluated by the number of rings each has.

We can get a quick feel of how big or small a circus is by how many “rings” it has,  like a 3-rings circus. As to the breadth of knowledge that a Feng Shui practitioner has, we can know by how many “luopan” or Feng Shui compass rings that s/he can handle .

A Feng Shui compass or luopan may have up to 50 rings.  Each ring represents measurements of time and space in a certain manner represented by a Feng Shui school or perspective.  So a Feng Shui practitioner’s breadth of knowledge can be measured by the number of rings that s/he can handle.  An average Feng Shui compass has about 20- 30 rings.

The Feng Shui mania during the late 1990’s and early 2000’s has produced many “Flying Star Feng Shui” practitioners both in the west and in Hong Kong.   Most of these practitioners become “masters” after a 20- 30 hours of training.  They can only handle the “24-mountain ring”  despite there are over 20 rings in their luopans.  More often than not, they simply run the star number game in their Feng Shui audits and do not take into consideration of the surrounding land forms in the environment.  An audit can be done in less than 30 minutes.

Some people in Hong Kong called these “Flying Star” practitioners as “One Ring Master”  (一層大師) out of disdain, especially for those who think that Flying Star is the ultimate in Feng Shui.

If you are one of these ORM (One Ring Masters) and want to increase your rings (not wings), you can take my “Practical Door Feng Shui” video course.  You will get at least 3+ more rings and become a MRM (Multiple Rings Master) in a few weeks.

China’s Qing East Tombs ( 清东陵) is famous for its imperial tombs and auspicious Feng Shui. It was built in 1611 with 157 imperial family members including 5 emperors and 15 queens buried there.  It attracts many tourists and Feng Shui tour groups.

Qing East Tombs

In May 20, 2011,  a mysterious tourist went to a site parallel to the tomb of emperor Shunzhi (r. 1644-61),  dug a hole and attempted to bury the ash box of his deceased father there. Tomb security people had stopped and arrested this man.  He told the security that he thought if he could bury his father’s cremated ashes in this imperial tomb with auspicious Feng Shui,  he and his descendants will enjoy prosperity and good luck. Other tourists called this man the “coolest tourist” while some netizens called him “Brother Superstition”   (迷信哥).

Brother Superstition was “criticized” and “educated” while in captivity.  He had admitted “guilt” on the spot and was released.  Apparently the Tomb Security authority thinks that being a laughing stock is a good enough punishment for this Feng Shui nut.  The news was broadcast on TV and newspapers across China.

Brother Superstition should come to the United States where the Bush family tombs are located.  It must have great Feng Shui because it has already produced two U.S. presidents and one governor.  But his problem is that cremated ashes do not give strong “resonance” to the descendants than burial remains (bones).  The descendants may become president’s butlers or housemaids instead of presidents or governors.   It is also difficult to “hitch” a spot near the Bush family plot if he tries to get a big bag of bones into the ground.

According to many great Feng Shui legends, good Feng Shui (tomb and residential) is only part of the equation to riches and fame. It takes many generations of cultivation and accumulation of  merits and virtues for a family to produce to a high ranking official like an emperor or president.

This has something to do with the idea of “Blessed people reside in blessed land” — whether these blessed people are dead or alive.
