Door is the main conduit of energy or qi entering into a residence.  There are many methods of evaluate the quality of this energy and what goodies that it brings to the residents.doorFS

Today is your lucky day because you will find the rarely published secrets of this door Feng Shui method.

Below are the door facing direction and what it enhances:

East-facing door enhances academic pursuits as long as the southeast side of house has no missing corner or caving in.   This house will enhance the academic performance or “wen-chang” of its residents.

South-facing door benefits women residents as long as the west side of house has no missing corner or caving in.   This house will enhance the luck of its female residents.

West-facing door enhances career/ official post luck as long as the northwest side of house has no missing corner, caving in, toilet and stove.   This house will enhance the government career or status luck of its owner.

North-facing door enhances male heirs and male luck as long as the east side of house has no missing corner or caving in.  This house will enhance the luck of younger male residents.

Northwest-facing door enhances career and wealth luck as long as the north side of house has no missing corner or caving in.   This house will enhance the government career and wealth luck of its residents.

Northeast-facing door helps personal cultivation and enlightenment as long as the southwest side of house has no missing corner or caving in.  This house will enhance religious/ metaphysics studies and spirituality for the residents.

Southeast-facing door enhances fame and reputation as long as the south side of house has no missing corner or caving in.   This house will enhance the fame/ reputation luck based on talent and skills of the residents.

Southwest-facing door enhances wealth pursue as long as the northeast side of house has no missing corner or caving in.   This house will enhance the business/ investment/ money management luck of the house owner.

“Ken, which Feng Shui school does this door-facing theory is based on?”

This is top secret (will show up in my “Practical Door Feng Shui” course discussion group).  Here is a hint:  It is based on flying the door-facing star in a certain way.  You can easily reverse engineer it and trace the patterns by drawing 8 charts.  This school uses the term “big golden dragon” (大金龙) to describe certain thing.

The interpretations here are based on 8-trigrams (pre- and post-heaven bagua) and 5-elements theory.

In Bazi or 4-pillars, favorable elements (“useful gods“) are the elements that keep a chart in balance for standard charts and “special” for non-standard charts.  When the owner (daymaster or DM) of the chart runs into luck periods with these favorable elements, his luck will be good or at the least, nothing bad happen to him.

However, it is not unusual that someone runs into major disasters, illness or even death during his favorable element luck period/s.  Why?

This has to do with the concepts static vs. dynamic favorable elements.

APPROACHES TO EXTRACTING FAVORABLE ELEMENTS

Static Model

This is the most popular approach used in most basic Bazi books/ courses and Bazi software because it is easy to learn and program.  It is based on the data from a moment in time (the birthday/ hour) and calculates which elements are needed to balance the chart.  These elements are called favorable elements and supporting elements (“happy god“).  Then these favorable elements are used as benchmarks to determine if the future luck periods are good or bad for the DM.  This is simple and logical.  Isn’t it?  But it fails to take into consideration of the cumulative effects of luck period elements on chart balance.  This is a main reason that this model does not always make the right predictions.

Another reason is that if there is/ are interactions between natal chart and luck period.  For example, if fire is favorable according to this static model and you see a bing-fire luck period coming, you may predict good luck comes for this DM.  But if there is a xin-metal in the natal chart or another luck period,  this fire may be converted into water which is likely unfavorable.

Dynamic Model

If we use taking a photo analogy at a certain time (like time of birth) for static model, dynamic model would be taking multiple photos at different points of time  (luck periods) and drawing different conclusions on which elements are favorable or unfavorable for each photo or point of time..

This approach takes care of changing dynamics between 5-elements in a chart.  For example, if water is “favorable” at birth, when a 10-years-luck and annual luck are all water elements, water may become excessive and unfavorable!  This is one of the reasons why one may die during his favorable luck period defined by static model.

The more of a “good thing” may not be merrier in 5-elements theory.  It is like salt is good for your body, but too much salt will give you high blood pressure.  The “right amount” of a good thing needed to keep the Bazi chart in balance is the key.

There are different levels of “dynamic model”—  taking photos or calculations of birth chart with

  1. 10-years-luck only
  2. 10-years-luck and annual luck only
  3. 10-years-luck, annual luck and current month
  4. 10-years-luck, annual luck, current month and current day
  5. 10-years-luck, annual luck, current month, current day and current hour

But most people would do to 10YL and annual luck level only unless DM is in serious trouble or illness.  It will be too much calculations even for Bazi software.

soundofMoneyToday is your ultra-lucky day– I will show you step-by-step how to figure out your own personalized sound of wealth to enhance your wealth luck.

The first step is to understand the “self” or daymaster (DM) in Bazi.  The second step is to find out if you have a “strong” or “weak”  DM.  The final step is to determine your personalized sound of wealth.

Bazi is based on 5-elements theory.  The 5-elements are: metal, wood, water, fire and earth.  Every person is assigned to one of these 5-elements according to their birthday.  For example, I was born in a metal day, so I am a “metal daymaster” (DM).

In Bazi, what I (metal person) control is my wealth.  Metal chops or controls wood.  So metal is my wealth element.  You will find out your wealth element following the tutorial below.   This tutorial is also helpful for you to understand my other articles on Bazi topics.

HOW TO FIND OUT YOUR DAYMASTER AND STRENGTH

1.  Log in to http://www.bazi-calculator.com

2.  In the right-side of the screen panel box, select “Ken Lai Method“.  No need to bother with anything else.

3.  Key in your birthday and hour in the left side of the screen.  Ignore the right side screen for “date to compare“.

4.  Click the “calculate” box to get results.

5.  Scroll down the screen and see your Bazi chart in the left side with a table similar to the one here.

6.  The first box of second column (the one with “day master” in it) shows the elemental nature of your daymaster  (example here is geng-metal in grey color).  Below are the colors of 5 elements:

  • Metal (Geng and Xin) in grey color (wealth is Wood)
  • Wood (Jia and Yi) in green color (wealth is Earth)
  • Water (Ren and Gui) in blue color (wealth is Fire)
  • Fire (Bing and Ding) in red color (wealth is Metal)
  • Earth (Wu and Ji) in yellow color (wealth is Water)

7.  Next to find if you are a strong or weak DM. Scroll down to the elongated box showing the words “DM strength”, similar to the one below:

 8.  Below shows you how to determine if you have a weak or strong DM if your supporting elements is

  •  25% or less = pretty weak DM
  • 40% or less = weak DM
  • 40- 50% = almost balanced DM
  •  50%+ = strong DM
  • 60%+ = strong DM

9.  This calculation is a rough estimation that is pretty accurate if you have a standard chart.  About 20% of Bazi charts are non-standard.

After you have found out your DM element and DM strength, come back next time to find out how to use your personalized sound of wealth to enhance your wealth luck.

10 years ago, I wrote about my neighbor’s new puppy, a black labrador:

kate2

stock photo

http://kenlaifengshui.blogspot.com/search?q=super+cleanser

Kate, the puppy, becomes an old dog.  She has died of cancer last Monday.

Kate was an energetic dog.  She always greeted me with hugs and talked to me.  She had kept her promise of not peeving on my lawn too.  I write this “Easy Pet Feng Shui” to honor her life.

EASY PET FENG SHUI

This pet Feng Shui is based on elemental or energy nature of each animal groups.  It is easy to execute– simply put the pet house or nest into “best sector” of your house or animal shelter.  For example, if the best sector is in the east, put your pet’s nest/ bed in the east side of your house.  Below are some definitions for the table below.

Animal Groups

For clarity, each group is represented by one animal.  But it can also represent similar animals.  For examples: “Dog group” also represents wolf, fox and the likes.  “Cat group” also represents tiger, cougar and the likes. “Fish group” represents all aquatic animals.  “Bird group” also represents any feathered birds like turkey, rooster and the likes.

Best Sector

This is the best location for setting up your pet’s sleeping quarter or nest.  It promotes good health and vitality for your pet because the energy of this location matches your pet’s unique energy patterns.

Weakening Sector

This is not a location for setting up your pet’s sleeping quarter or nest.  The energy here will weaken or drain the energy of your pet.

Negative Sector

This is the worst location for setting up your pet’s sleeping quarter or nest.  The energy here is fighting with your pet’s energy.  It will create serious health problem like cancer here.

RIP Kate the dog

Note:  In 2010,  using the 5-elements theory of Chinese metaphysics, I had found a strong correlation on the influences of jersey color on World Cup wins, especially if two teams are of similar caliber.  It seems the result of 2016 NBA Championship proves the point.

Chinese 5-elements theory states that the world is made up by the interactions between 5 type of energies;  metal, water, wood, fire and earth.  The relationship between these 5 types of elements are as follow:

  • Metal is represented by white color. It is controlled by fire (red), drained by water (blue or black) and nurtured by earth (yellow or brown).
  • Wood is represented by green color.  It is controlled by metal (white), drain by fire (red) and nurtured by water (blue or black).
  • Water is represented by blue or black color. It is controlled by earth (yellow or brown), drain by wood (green) and nurtured by metal (white).
  • Earth is represented by yellow or brown color. It is controlled by wood (green), drain by metal (white) and nurtured by fire (red). 

The final match of the 2016 NBA Championship game was a close match with Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors.  It is a rare game 7 in the NBA Championship history.  The score differential between the two teams are very small throughout the game.  This shows both teams are pretty close to each other in terms of competency.

Cleveland Cavaliers wore black jersey whereas the Golden State Warriors wore white.  Black or deep-blue is water in energy-nature and blue is metal in Chinese 5-elements theory.

According to the theory, metal produces water (becomes liquid) or is drained by water when it produces water.  If everything is about equal between these two teams, the Warriors lost the edge in the “jersey competition”.

The Warriors had lost the game in the final minute.

The Warrior should have picked yellow, brown or green jersey if they want to beat the Cavalier’s black jersey.

Maybe the Warriors should consult me before picking the color of their jersey when they play their next championship game.

Yesterday Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, has posted a photo of his closet with only grey color T-shirts and black hoodies.  The mass media, from TV news, newspapers, websites, tweets to blogs, have a field day of poking fun at Mark.  The media try to explain why Mark likes grey color– using utilitarian, nerd, genius to psychopath explanation.

This is a piece of cake if explaining it in terms of Chinese astrology.

Chinese cosmology maintains that the world is created with 5 natural elements– earth, metal, water, wood and fire.   All living things thrive under the interplay of these 5 elements.  These elements nurtures and controls each other in terms of nurturing and controlling cycles (see diagram in the right).

Chinese astrology like 4-Pillars classifies people in terms of five natural elements– earth, metal, water, wood and fire.  One’s birthday determines his/ her birth element.  Mark Zuckerberg was born in May 14, 1984.  He was born in a strong earth day.  So he is a “strong earth” person. A strong earth person needs metal and water energy to balance his birth chart energy.

For an earth person, metal is his creativity and talent because earth produces metal.  Grey is the color of metal in Chinese metaphysics.  Metal condenses or produces water.  Water color is black in Chinese metaphysics.  Water is the wealth element for an earth person.  In other words, grey color represents Mark Zuckerberg’s creativity.  For a strong earth person, he needs to relieve some earth energy to achieve balance in his birth chart.  This means producing metal or using his creativity.  This creativity in turn produces water or wealth.

Therefore, Mark Zuckerberg has picked grey T-shirts and black hoodies that helps to balance the 5-elements energies of his birth chart subconsciously.

Very often, individual picks color objects that will balance the energy patterns of his or her birth chart without making a conscious effort.

Note:  The following is an excerpt from the “Days to avoid” chapter of my “Practical Date-Selection Methods” video course.  It is modified here for people who cannot afford this video course for the time being.  So they can at least avoid some bad dates.
 
DAYS TO AVOID
Regardless of the date-selection system you are using, you should not use certain days within a year. Remove these days from your consideration will reduce the number of days to analyse.                                                  
.
Generally, it is still possible to use these days IF other methods say that they are good. In particular, you may use them if the four pillar analysis shows that the day is strong in your favorable element and some other date-selection methods, like XKDG also approves it.
.
There are 7 types of days to be avoided:
  1. Year Breaker (Sui Po)
  2. Month Breaker (Yue Po)
  3. Day Breaker (Ri Po)
  4. Big Consumption (Da Hao)
  5. Yearly San Sha
  6. Monthly San Sha
  7. Daily San Sha                                                                                                                                                  
For simplicity and practical purposes, we will cover only year, month and day breaker here plus an important tip at the end of this message (the course manual covers everything listed above).  This should be suffice for common applications.  The goal here is NOT choosing the best date but to avoid bad dates, which is much easier to do for non-professionals.  No bad things happen to you is the next best thing to good things happen.                                                                                                                             

YEAR BREAKER  (Sui Po) 

If you use a year breaker day:

  • Frustrations. Things do not flow.
  • Arguments and conflicts.
  • Business negotiations will be unsuccessful.
  • Contracts and marriages are unsuccessful.

If possible, avoid using the month that breaks the year as well.  In some scenarios,  you  may not be able to avoid a whole month if the activity or event must be held within the month.
.
MONTH BREAKER (Yue Po)
If you use the month breaker day:
  • Frustrations. Things do not flow.
  • Arguments and conflicts.
  • Business negotiations will be unsuccessful.
  • Contracts and marriages are unsuccessful.

.
DAY BREAKER (Ri Po)
This is slightly different from Sui Po and Yue Po. The day is broken by the animal sign of the hour. This is relatively minor, compared to the other two breakers.
If you use a day breaker hour:
  • Frustrations. Things do not flow.
  • Arguments and conflicts.
  • Business negotiations will be unsuccessful.
  • Contracts and marriages are unsuccessful.

 .
How to find or calculate the animal signs of a date and hour?  Simply go to the following website and type in the target date and hour.  
 
To get the animal signs, you need to click the box options in the top right side of the screen as show here. That is, choose “Ken Lai Method” and “Pillars: English” options.
 
You will find the animal listed at the branch (EB) level of the :

Sample Chart showing April 9, 2015; 10:55 am
year pillar (to find out your birth animal sign if keying in your birth date;  or if you key in the target date, the year pillar will be the Grand Duke or the animal sign of the year)
month pillar  (month animal sign)
day pillar  (day animal sign)
hour pillar  (hour animal sign)
 
Besides avoiding year, month and day breakers, the date/time chosen should not clash the animal sign/s of the user/s.  If you cannot avoid clashing someone’s animal sign in a group situation, simply avoid clashing the principal or bread-winner of the family or company.                                                                                                                                         
To summarize, when choosing a date, avoid clashing:  the current year’s Grand Duke (Tai Sui) or animal sign,  the animal sign of the month,  the animal sign of the day and the animal sign of the user or client (dead or alive).                    
.
However, for important events and activities, you probably should consult other date-selection methods like XKDG, QMDJ,  4-Pillars and etc., or hire a professional to do the date-selection for you.

Note:  In 2010,  I had found a strong correlation of 60% or more on the influences of jersey color on World Cup wins.  The followings are “green materials” (recycle)  with updated statistics for the first 4 matches of the World Cup in Brazil. (updated June 15 with  results of 8 matches)

Chinese 5-elements theory states that the world is made up by the interactions between 5 type of energies;  metal, water, wood, fire and earth.  The relationship between these 5 types of elements are as follow:

  • Metal is represented by white color. It is controlled by fire (red), drained by water (blue or black) and nurtured by earth (yellow or brown).
  • Wood is represented by green color.  It is controlled by metal (white), drain by fire (red) and nurtured by water (blue or black).
  • Water is represented by blue or black color. It is controlled by earth (yellow or brown), drain by wood (green) and nurtured by metal (white).
  • Earth is represented by yellow or brown color. It is controlled by wood (green), drain by metal (white) and nurtured by fire (red).
Here are the rules for picking the winning team:
  • If that team’s jersey color controls the opponent’s jersey color (example, red will lose to blue) or
  • If that team’s jersey color drains the opponent’s jersey color (white will lose to blue)

How does it work?
Jersey color stands for part of the energy field surrounding the players.  By controlling or draining the energy field of your opponent using appropriate colored jersey, you can enhance the energy level of your own team and weakening the energy level of your opponent.  There are other Chinese metaphysical methods like Qi-Men-Dun-Jia that can increase the odds of  winning by 10- 15% through the use of directional energies.

Plugging this 5-elements theory to the first 4 matches, we have the following results:

FIRST 4 MATCHES

1.  BRAZIL vs CROATIA  (Jersey: yellow vs  red)

2.  MEXICO vs CAMERON  (Jersey: green vs yellow)

I found that the Chinese 5-elements theory is a pretty good predictor of winners for the World Cup semi-finals based on the actual team jersey color during the match.

Chinese 5-elements theory states that the world is made up by the interactions between 5 type of energies;  metal, water, wood, fire and earth.  The relationship between these 5 types of elements are as follow:

  • Metal is represented by white color. It is controlled by fire (red), drained by water (blue or black) and nurtured by earth (yellow or brown).
  • Wood is represented by green color.  It is controlled by metal (white), drain by fire (red) and nurtured by water (blue or black).
  • Water is represented by blue or black color. It is controlled by earth (yellow or brown), drain by wood (green) and nurtured by metal (white).
  • Earth is represented by yellow or brown color. It is controlled by wood (green), drain by metal (white) and nurtured by fire (fire).
 Here are the rules for picking the winning team:
  • If that team’s jersey color controls the opponent’s jersey color (example, red will lose to blue) or
  • If that team’s jersey color drains the opponent’s jersey color (white will lose to blue)

How does it work?
Jersey color stands for part of the energy field surrounding the players.  By controlling or draining the energy field of your opponent using appropriate colored jersey, you can enhance the energy level of your own team and weakening the energy level of your opponent.  There are other Chinese metaphysical methods like Qi-Men-Dun-Jia that can increase the odds of  winning by 10- 15% through the use of directional energies.

Plugging this 5-elements theory to June 26 and 27 semi-finals, we have the follow results:

1.  URU vs KOR (blue vs white)
— blue is water and white is metal.  Water drains metal.  The theory predicts URU will win.
2.  USA vs GHA (white vs red)
— white is metal and red is fire.  Fire burns or control metal.  The theory predicts GHA will win.
3. GER vs ENG (white vs red)
— white is metal and red is fire. Fire burns or control metal. The theory predicts ENG will win.  Incorrect for this one.  But June 27th is a strong metal day according to Chinese calendar.
4. ARG vs MEX (blue/white vs green)
— blue is water and white is metal and green is wood. Metal controls or chops wood. The theory predicts ARG will win.  Besides June 27th is a strong metal day according to Chinese calendar.

Chinese 5-elements theory’s predictions are almost 75% accurate for the first two days of the World Cup semi-finals.  How about the next two days?

Assuming the teams will wear their standard team colored jerseys, here are the possible results:

1.  NED vs SVK (red vs blue)
— red is fire and blue is water.  Water extinguishes fire.  So SVK is likely to win.
2.  BRA vs CHI (yellow vs red)
— yellow is earth and red is fire.  Earth drains fire.  So BRA is likely to win.
3.  PAR vs JPN (red/white vs blue)
— red is fire and white is metal; blue is water.  Water drains metal and water extinguishes fire.  So JPN is likely to win.
4.  ESP vs POR (red vs red)
— it is unlikely that both teams wear red.  The team that wears white is likely to lose because red is fire and white is metal.  Fire burns metal.

May the best team win (Coaches:  Make sure you pick the winning color for your team jersey)!
