winstonchurchill1Winston Churchill had a famous saying, “We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us.”  It describes the interactions and influences between residents and the layout or design of the building.  This is the bread and butter of architects.

In Feng Shui, we have a similar notion of how house-shape affects the organic well-being of the occupants.  A house can project its characteristics onto the body and even social relationship of the occupants.  For example,  a house with missing northwest corner is likely to be a house without a male breadwinner or at least with a weak one.  Occupants are likely to have respiratory-related illness.

In this post, we focus on precautions for pregnant woman in terms of house missing corners.

FIRST PREGNANCY:  If this is your first pregnancy and know the baby is a boy, make sure the east side of your house is not a missing corner.  East or Zhen direction represents the eldest son.

If this is your first pregnancy and know the baby is a girl, make sure the southeast side of your house is not a missing corner.  Southeast or Xun direction represents the eldest daughter.

If  this is your first pregnancy and do not know the gender of the baby,  make sure the east and southeast side of your house have no missing corners.  

SECOND PREGNANCY:  Second pregnancy is a little bit complicated because you need to consider the gender result of first pregnancy.

If this is your second pregnancy and know the baby is a boy AND previous birth is also a boy, make sure the north side of your house is not a missing corner.  North or Kan direction represents the second or middle son.  If the previous birth is a girl, make sure east side is not missing.

If this is your second pregnancy and know the baby is a girl AND previous birth is a boy, make sure the southeast side of your house is not a missing corner.  If the previous birth is also a girl, make sure south side is not missing.  South or Li direction represents middle daughter.

If you do not know the gender of the second pregnancy, make sure north, east, southeast and south side do not have missing corners.

THIRD PREGNANCY:  If this is your third pregnancy and know the baby is a boy AND previous two births are also boys, make sure the northeast side of your house is not a missing corner.  Northeast or Gen direction represents youngest or third son.  If previous two births are both girls, make sure east side is not missing.

If this is your third pregnancy and know the baby is a girl AND previous two births are boys, make sure the southeast side of your house is not a missing corner.  If previous two births are both girls, make sure west side is not missing.  West or Dui direction represents youngest or .third daughter.

If you do not know the gender of your third pregnancy, make sure north, south, east, west, southeast, and northeast sides are not missing.

If this is your forth pregnancy……  you are too “productive” and probably overworking yourself to death either in bed or at work!

Consult a Feng Shui practitioner or take my “Advanced Visual Form Feng Shui” course for remedies.

Note:  I have just posted the following message in my “Advanced Visual Form Feng Shui” discussion list.

A 6-storeys tall building is near a flyover which is taller than the building in a Tai-yuan city, Shangxi Province of China.

A few days ago, within a few hours, the building becomes an 8-storeys building!

When look closer, the new “storeys” are spray-printed image of storeys on canvas on a metal frame. 


 

 

The reason for this new addition is because numerous non-old-aged residents had died of cancer in last few years.  The residents suspect it has something to do with the flyover and seek the help of a Feng Shui master. 

The master said the flyover is higher than the building and “suppresses” the blessing for the building.  He suggests making the building higher than the flyover as remedy.

After the “instant growth” of the new canvas “storeys“, the building is 10cm taller than the flyover.  70+ households in the building have paid for the expenses involved.

Do you think this remedy will work?  Will the fix make things better or worse? If you were the FS guy, what would you recommend instead?

wealth_locationToday is your lucky day again!  After reading this post, you will find a more precise way of locating your personal wealth location (PWL) based on your birth day.  PWL is only effective for you and not other residents of your house.

Firstly, you need to log in bazi-calculator.com to find out the “day stem” or “daymaster” (DM) of your birthday.  DM is your birth element.  Simply key in your birthday and click “calculate”.  Look at the chart in the left side of the screen.  The “day pillar” is the third column (counting from the right!) with your birth day # at the top.  Your day stem or daymaster (DM) should be one of the followings:

  • Jia or Yi— wood element
  • Bing or Ding— fire element
  • Wu or Ji-–  earth element
  • Geng or Xin-– metal element
  • Ren or Gui-–  water element

After finding your DM element, check the following diagram for your personal wealth location:

How to find your personal wealth location (PWL)

  1.  Find your DM element based on your birthday, for example, Ren-water DM.
  2.  In our example, Ren DM PWL will be in S2 or south sector (15 degrees region)
  3.  Jia and Yi-wood DM have more than one PWL.

Important notes on personal wealth location

  1.  PWL should not be in a missing corner — consult your Feng Shui guy for remedies or take my “Advanced Visual Form Feng Shui” w/23 hr. HD video
  2.  PWL should not located in a door or window area.
  3.  PWL should be kept clean and no clutter
  4.  PWL should be bright
  5.  You may put wide leaves plant or wealth symbols in your PWL
  6.  If PWL overlaps with other wealth location, it will double the effect
  7.  If PWL branch element is unfavorable to your Bazi chart, it will have no wealth effect for you.

0000bossyBossy” is a politically correct term for “bitch” here.  Below are Feng Shui conditions that will increase the dominance or power of women in a house.  These Feng Shui conditions are not necessarily negative IF the women are subservient to the men in a family and modify their house Feng Shui to make men less dominant.

FENG SHUI CONDITIONS THAT INCREASE WOMAN DOMINANCE

  1. Kitchen is bigger than bedroom.
  2. The total size of kitchen and dinning room are bigger than the living room
  3. Wrong main door color:  In Feng Shui, main door direction is the “red phoenix” direction and should use “yang” or brighter color.  Back side is the “black tortoise” with “yin” or low profile color. What this means the main door facing outside should be in bright color (“yang“) and the back of the door should be dark color.   If the front door is in black or darker color, the “yin-yang” is inverted and promotes “yin” or woman power in the house.
  4. Right side of your house is bigger than the left side (or left side has missing corner):  Left side represents man and right side the woman of the house.  Bigger right side means the woman has more power over the man.
  5. Assuming the left and right side of the house are equal in size, but the right side has more stuff like heavy furniture and activities there.  These would also increase female dominance.

Now women can blame Feng Shui for being bossy.  Men can said bad Feng Shui make them not standing up to their bossy wives.  Self-esteem of all the parties restored.  But the best remedy is to hire a Feng Shui practitioner to fix these problems OR take my Advanced Visual Form Feng Shui” w/23 hr.

Note:  The following is an excerpt from the manual of “Advanced Visual Form Feng Shui” on the effects of “T-junction” or road clash (a.k.a. road-chong) on the residents of a house.

Road clash is a strong rush of air current hitting a house. It disrupts the magnetic field of the house being rushed and in turn affecting the residents inside.
NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF ROAD CLASH
Clash from the front of house:
l         Injuries and automobiles accidents  (hitting from the front)
l         Lawsuits (road clash is a sha energy, stands for lawsuits)
l         Murder and deaths (esp. if the road clash is from the east)
l         Serious sickness, surgeries or strokes
Clash from the back of house:
l         Injuries and automobiles accidents (hitting from the back or occurs during evening)
l         Backstabbing by mean people; being accused or implicated
l         Bad debts from relatives and close friends
l         Lawsuits
Clash from the side of house:
n          Effects are similar to clash from the back
REMEDIES FOR ROAD CLASH
  • (please see “Advanced Visual Form Feng Shui” course manual)
Note: use bagua mirror only when you have no other alternative.  It is more a psychological remedy than real fix.
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ROAD CLASH AND DIRECTION  (Direction is relative to the house)
l         Road clash from NW, W, NE and S—will bring wealth, but still unsafe (may hurt residents).  It is more appropriate for
business storefront than residence.
l         Road clash from N, SW —  likely to have lawsuits
l         Road clash from SE— peach blossom and suicides are more likely
l         Road clash from East— car accidents and deaths are more likely
AUSPICIOUS ROAD CLASH DIRECTION (direction is relative to the house)
Not all road clashes are negative, the ones that clashes the “timely star” are good for doing business are: (based on current Period 8)
–NW, W, NE and S, especially NE and South
Note:  the house being clashed must have back support, green dragon and white tiger to handle the clash.

Some Chinese wonder why Japan had always won the battles with China from the late 19th century to the 1940’s.

China Map Shaped like a mulberry leaf before Mongolia independence

One clue to this question lies on the shape of China’s map before and after 1945.

The shape of China map looked like a mulberry leaf when Outer Mongolia was still part of China.  Japan’s map looks like a silkworm.

But in 1945, Russia’s Stalin had pressured the then Chinese Nationalist Government to let Outer Mongolia become independent.  In return, Stalin had promised not to aid the Chinese Communist Party.

In August 8, 1945, Outer Mongolia becomes independent. Without Outer Mongolia,  the shape of China map looks like a rooster with its beak pointing at Japan, the silkworm.

China the rooster looking at Japan the silkworm

Whether it was a coincidence or not, seven days later (August 15, 1945), Japan had surrendered to China unconditionally.

SIGNIFICANCE OF FROM MULBERRY LEAF TO A ROOSTER

Form Feng Shui is the study of  how land forms or environmental shapes of land and buildings affect the well-being of its residents.

From Form Feng Shui perspective, land shape can influence the perception and behaviors of the people reside on it subconsciously.

By nature, silkworms munch on mulberry leaves. Therefore, Japan the silkworm had feasted on China the mulberry leaf successfully.  That is, Japan had won most of the battles with China before 1945 when China’s land form was still looked like a mulberry leaf.

When China’s land shape becomes a rooster with its beak pointing to Japan the silkworm, the table has turned.  It is nature’s law for roosters to eat worms.

Hence, Japan has the subconscious fear of being pecked on by the rooster neighbor.  China the rooster subconsciously drools on this potential worm dinner.  In reality, Japan currently feels the biggest threat is from China.

Believe it or not?  Form Feng Shui can be very entertaining.  There are more interesting case studies in my “Advanced Visual Form Feng Shui” video course.

In my previous blog,  I wrote about green tombs in China.  This edition shows how some barren mountains in China become green.

At first, I think all these “greening” of stuff is a recent Chinese invention.  Upon further research,  it is a quite “old” practice.  The following photos pretty much “tell” the story itself.

In May, 2004, in Dìngxī city of Gansu Province, a barren hill was painted green for a local celebration.
20045月,甘肃定西市陇西县仁寿山公园,为了迎接农历初八的朝山会,将没有长草的山体涂上了绿颜料。
In June, 2004, Shenzhen city government (Guangdong province) had spent RMB$1 million (US$160k) to make a mountain “green“. 

20046月,深圳芙蓉工业区的芙蓉尾山上,当地政府实施山体刷绿工程,整体耗资100万元。

In February, 2007,  in a county of Yunnan province, the broken part of a mountain due to mining was painted green.  
20072月,云南富民县勤劳乡梨华村,采石出现的山体缺口,被涂上绿漆
 
In October, 2008, a town in Guangdong province had spent over RMB$100k+ to buy green nets to cover up barren hills, arid land and illegal structures, to cheat on satellite inspection of “re-green”  (afforestation) effort. 
200810月,广东东莞横沥镇六甲村,为应付卫星复绿检查,花费十几万购买绿网,铺在荒地、山石及违建上。
 
In July of 2010,  in a county of Yunnan Province,  tombs along a hill were either painted green or covered up with a green or black camouflage net.  Reporter found out this was due to a afforestation campaign. 
20107月,云南昆明市宜良县,从宜良县城往狗街路上,两侧山上坟墓墓碑要么被刷上一层绿油漆,要么披上绿或黑的伪装网。记者采访获知,这是宜良在推进城乡园林绿化工作.                                                  
From fake eggs to fake Rolex, it is no surprise that we can find fake green mountains in China. Faking a green mountain is much quicker than planting trees and waiting for the mountain to turn green naturally.  Local government officials can claim credit much quicker and earn political capital for further advancement.

Everyone knows the new green clothe is fake except the “emperor“,  At the minimal, this reversal of “emperor’s new clothe” practice has been going on since 2004.

What is the connection between fake green mountains and Chinese metaphysics?  

In the last 20 years, we have seen many “new“, “long lost” or “family heirloom”  metaphysics theories and manuscripts from China.  They cover topics like Bazi, Yi-jing, Feng Shui, QMDJ and the likes.  How real or authentic are these “new” export from China?                                    

The answer to this question is not optimistic if you see Chinese citizens swarm Hong Kong and Japan to buy basic necessities like baby formula and even rice.  They do not trust China products sold in China largely due to safety concerns and counterfeit problems.

People argue about the business ethics or the lack of business ethics in China is a major cause of China’s counterfeit problem. But this is beyond the scope of this blog.
