Buddhists have 3 levels of perceptions of reality:

One sees a mountain. It is a mountain to him.  One sees water.  It is water to him.

看山是山,看水是水;

The mountain one sees is not a mountain and water is not water.

看山不是山,看水不是水;

This mountain is still a mountain no matter how one looks at it, so is the water.

看山還是山,看水還是水。

Our perception of reality revolves around these 3 levels.

What I want to see.

What the society has conditioned me to see.

What my inner self really sees.

Is reality real?

Buddha says reality is a reflection of our heart (mind).

The essence of Feng Shui is about balance of static and dynamic elements around our living environment. clocks

According to Yi-jing (“Book of Changes”, the source of Chinese civilization),  “Auspiciousness and inauspiciousness are generated from movements 吉凶悔咎生乎动).  Hence the placement of moving objects in any location, especially inside your home, could affect the well-being of residents much faster than stationary objects.  Items like fish-tank, water-fountain, clocks and the like should be placed with great caution.

For this post, the focus is on clocks, but the principles for other moving objects are similar.

FENG SHUI PRECAUTIONS FOR CLOCK PLACEMENT

  1. One clock per room/location: Too many clocks within a room will confuse the energy there.  People may feel uneasy or distressed.
  2. Clock shapes:  should be square/ rectangular or circular shaped.  Avoid triangular, hexagon and octagon shapes.  Odd-shaped clocks could generate bickering and arguments.
  3. Bed room clocks: should be small and not too big.  Big clocks may cause distress and frequent separations for the couple.
  4. Big or grand-father clocks are not suitable for small home.  It creates imbalance visually and energetically.
  5. Clock should be placed in auspicious location and facing inauspicious direction to block and convert negative energy.
  6. Do not put movement (clock!) in 5-yellow disaster and 2-black sickness star locations or you will suffer disasters or sickness.  Exception is the grandfather clock with brass/copper bells which is the remedy of 5-yellow and 2-black stars.

Where do all these penalties come from?  I have created the tables below for you to figure out the relationship at a glance:

SOURCES OF PENALTIES

One approach to derive penalties is matching 3-unities (San He) with 3-meetings (San Hui) like additions.  From the tables above, we have the following penalties:

3-Penalties

  • Yin-si-shen  (from 4 sub-cardinal branches)
  • Red is 4 cardinal branches; blue is sub-cardinal; brown is 4 storages

    Xu-chou-wei  (from 4-storages)

  • Zi-mao  (from 4 cardinal branches)

Penalties:

  • Yin-si, yin-shen, si-shen
  • Xu-chou, xu-wei, chou-wei

Self-Penalties:

  • Chen-chen
  • You-you
  • Wu-wu
  • Hai-hai

It will be a long story to explain the above individually.  Please check my past blog articles on this topic for details.

Year of Pig has been here for just 10 days.  It has already brought many inches of snow to us here.  My deck has collected 17.5 inches (48 cm) of snow in last few days.  Pig or Hai is water in nature according to Chinese metaphysics.  2019 is Ji-hai earth-pig year.  There are mudslides in certain parts of the world recently.

 

Today is very warm at 30F or -1C,  I decide to take a walk in the park near my house after hibernating in the house during last week’s snowstorm.

The pictures below is my neighborhood.

Walking past by an old tree covered with snow.

 

This is the entrance to the park.  This park is only 200 meters from my home.

 

Children’s playground covered up with thick snow.

 

This wood or small forest is enchanting in any seasons.

 

 

Is this the secret entrance to heaven?  I am in heaven if you do not see me here next time.

This article assumes you are biological capable of producing a baby AND your Bazi birth chart shows you have children in your chart.  But for whatever reason, you have problem conceiving a baby.  Then we suspect it has something to do with your house Feng Shui.

Here are some Feng Shui tips to help you overcome this baby-making difficulty.

Feng Shui separates your house into 8 major sectors:  N, S, E, W, NE, SE, SW and NW.  Each direction handles some functions and representations.

North stands for water and reproductive system for Feng Shui.  When this sector has Feng Shui problem, the residents will likely have reproductive illnesses.  Hence the North sector of your house must have correct Feng Shui arrangement before you can make any baby.  (Free bonus here:  fix this sector if you have impotence or ED problem)

In Yi-jing (“Book of Changes“), young boy is represented by Gen trigram or NE sector.  Pre-heaven location of Gen is in NW and post-heaven location is in NE.  Hence, if you want a baby boy,  make sure the Feng Shui of NE and NW sector of your house are not messed up.  Otherwise, the boy born will be a weakling.  Gen is earth and NW is metal in nature.

Dui trigram or West represents young girl in Yi-jing.  Pre-heaven location of Dui is SE and post-heaven is West.  Hence, if you want a baby girl, you make sure this two sectors are clean and the appropriate Feng Shui setup, especially if you want a pretty girl.  SE is wood and West is metal in nature.

Before you fix the baby Feng Shui, fix the North side first because you need a working reproductive system before you can make babies.

Ken, you have not told us what is appropriate Feng Shui for these sectors.”

This is simple Bagua Feng Shui.  Consult your Feng Shui teacher or books for details.  Simply put, do not put things that clash the elemental nature of a specific sector.  For example, water is the elemental nature of North sector, avoid putting earth element there and put things that will strengthen water, especially if you have impotency problem  (please donate your saving in Viagra to charity).

Special Chinese New Year Bonus:  North, West and NW also stand for wealth and career luck.  SE stands for academic luck.  Fix up the Feng Shui in these sectors will also help procreation, wealth, career and academic progress.
