“The Universe”

“The Universe” is a beautiful thing. It’s basically energy that is responding to our will and most of the time we don’t realize it. Because, we don’t understand that we get to choose what sort of energy we give off, receive and surround ourselves with. We blame it on Bad Luck, Bad Feng Shui and even Destiny. For example, if we going around feeling like a failure, then failing is going to be our story. If we going around feeling happy and contented even with small things, then we will continue along that pathway that spirals us upwards.

“The Universe” is unlimited and has much to offer us, but we “live” in our world of limitations (or perhaps, we make up our world with limitations). It sounds crazy when you think about it, but we’re led to believe that we can’t have what we want and even that we can lose everything we do have. “The world” is nothing but an illusion. By choosing to raise our vibration, we are making a decision to move into a place that is filled with unlimited potential. We’re choosing to accept the unlimited energy “The Universe” is willing to offer us.

Love, “The Universe”

8 Mansion: Start of Spring vs Winter Solstice (8マンション風水:春の始まりvs冬至) – 立春或冬至换年柱

In the Zhuan Xu Era (approx. 4,600 years ago), the Chinese had lived a settled agricultural life. Therefore, after the Beginning of Spring (立春), it is deem that Yang Qi (陽氣) floated on the ground, everything recovered, and people began to plough, sow and work in Spring; and harvest in Autumn. During the Winter Cold, all things withered, people recuperated. This cycle goes on (repeating again) into another Beginning of Spring. The earth shows the Cyclic Law of Resuscitation, all things and activity starts from the “Floating Ground” of LiChun (立春) Yang Qi (陽氣). Therefore, Zhuan Xu based on the comprehensive factors of the universe, the environment and climate of China, the natural law of the growth of all things, and people’s production, practice and living habits. So, it deem very scientific and practical to start the year with the beginning of spring.

The author believes that “HeTu” – 河圖 reflects the universal law of cosmic relationship, while “LuoShu” – 洛書 reflects the special law of cosmic movement (The author has a monograph in “He Luo” Overview). As far as the Universe is concerned, Yang Qi (陽氣) is born in the Winter Solstice (冬至), and Yin Qi (陰氣) is born in the Summer Solstice (夏至).

Since, the above article / discussion make sense in both aspect (Especially, the one that uses Winter Solstice). Then, shouldn’t we (also) reflect or ask ourselves…

Especially for 8 Mansion (八宅) Practitioners, have we been applying the wrong concept of plotting Life Gua (命卦) using Start of Spring (立春); or perhaps Winter Solstice (冬至) is a better representation of one Life Gua (命卦) number change. Since, Life Gua (命卦) is about playing with Gua (卦), shouldn’t this body of Feng Shui (風水) align closely with 12 Phrase Gua (十二消息卦) or iChing (易經).

We can (maybe) reaffirm ourselves by not challenging status quo. Just accepted what the Teachers and Masters taught us. There is a common wisdom or saying “人法地,地法天,天法道,道法自然”; keeping status quo is also a “自然”.

Nonetheless, I recognize that there is many ways to play with 8 Mansion (八宅).

The Six Consideration of Feng Shui (風水の6つの考察) – 风水学之: 内外六事

Traditionally, the assessment of Feng Shui (風水) can be divided into internal and external. Classified into 6 major consideration (i.e. Main Door, Living Room, Bed, Stairway, Stove, Roads etc)

Internal (内):
Main Door (大门), as the first item on the list. Hence, the main emphasis of any Feng Shui set up / formation. This is where Qi (氣) Flows enters the house. The focus of assessment centers around whether the Main Door Qi resides at an auspicious sector, whether the Door Qi produces or counters the Living Room or Siting / Mountain. And, whether the storey/ floor Qi as well as Luck Cycle produces the Main Door Qi.

Living Room (厅), the second item on the list. This is the area where Qi Flows slows down and accumulate. Whether the Living Room Qi is being produce by the Door is an important theme. Example of Living Room requirements are, the need to be spacious, higher ceiling, bright, clean and tidy.

Stairway (天阶), may not be applicable to high rise apartments. Nonetheless, this is where Qi moves around the house to the next level (internal to the house). The energy, Qi (氣) or Gua (卦) designated to build a stairway needs to be auspicious. In Flying Stars (飛星) per se, Stars 2, 3, 5, 7 should be avoided for stairway.

Bed (床), rest and rejuvenation is important to start the day afresh. Energy is required in order to pursue life’s goal. Hence, needlessly to mention the bed needs to be in a positive Gua or sector of the house. One common yet useful method of assessment is the use of Auspicious Life Gua (命卦) for Bed.

Stove (灶), in the past and big families still do most of the cooking at home. So, this typically is one factor Practitioner need to assess on. The commonly spoken water and fire clash where stove is too near the basin also ties in with food science and risk management theory.

Stone Mill (磨)→ change to study / work desk. In the past, Stone Mill is use for grinding soy, rice and other food. It act as a resource sector in the house. Now, in modern time, the relevant resource is probably seen as knowledge, skills and work related. Therefore, study / work desk need to be in auspicious sector of the house or at least align with current period.

External (外):
Roads (路), this is the main consideration for killing energy or poison arrows. Whether there is any incoming external energy clashing directly to our Living Room, Main Door or Windows. The moment you have it visual, there’s usually an impact.

Wells (井)→ change to reservoir, lakes, ponds, canals. In the past, the focused is on wells and water points in the village. In today’s world, the assessment now expands to a wider spectrum of item. The assessment of water goes back to direct and indirect spirit (零正催照).

Washroom (厕), in the past washroom are outside the house, so there a consideration whether it needs to be on the dragon side (龍), tiger side (虎) or hind side (玄武). But, washroom nowadays are internal to the house / apartment. Washroom ideally should be at the water exit point of the house or at a neutral/negative stars. Washroom also should not be opposite or behind the bed, stove or altar.

Temples / Churches (庙), this consideration holds 2 aspect. First, the shape of the building is considered a poison arrow. Second, place of worship could represent a storage of energy, wishes, prayers and consciousness, there is a concern of what if these energy are more negative than positive. Some of these places of worship also has an inbuild columbarium. Then, it affect the mental states and mood of the resident staying close by.

Bridge (桥), relates to same theory as roads. As a form of killing energy. Or blockage of Qi Flow around the exterior of the house / apartments. In modern times. The bridge also includes highways, which symbolises a cutlass slicing across the house / apartment.

Barn (牲畜栏) → change to Pet’s House/ Cottage. In the past, people rear farm animals and livestock such as chicken, pigs, cows and goats. All this give off pungent odor or attracting pest and rodents, affecting the quality of the living spaces. In modern days, as there is an increasingly number of pet owners. As people sees pets as members of the household, we need to house them in a auspicious sector so that it promote their good health and well-being. And, their movement in and out of the Pet’s House also activate the position energy flow.

Metaphysics (易学)


Elementals, alluring yet difficult to work with. There is always more than meets the eye and this definitely applies to elementals. If you have ever watched a fire burning, clouds formation, thunderstorms, river flowing or even the night sky and been transfixed by it, you have probably fallen under the power of elementals.

Elementals are natural energy; also called Devas or Djinn and are said to live in the Deva kingdom or fairy realm. Elementals are found around fireplaces, in fields, windy places, during storms, earthquakes, forest, flowing river or even seashore.

Some people have a natural affinity to make contacts with elementals which may be related to your astrological sign rather easily.

4 Pillars (四柱命理)

6 Alternatives to Improve Karma

  1. Acceptance is all about understanding that each of us is fighting an inner battle of some kind Not judging people is an important first step to managing karma. As we haven’t walk in their shoes, we don’t really know what they have been through.

  2. Forgiveness relieves us from ‘the pain’. It takes an amazingly compassionate person to forgive. Forgiveness doesn’t mean we are happy with what was done to us; it means we have move forward in love. Great things and manifestation happens to those who forgive.

  3. Gratitude is important, those who are thankful are happy. Express gratitude daily and the universe rewards us with inner peace.

  4. Reflection is to understand the good and bad we see in others exists within us. Everything we see outwards is an inwards reflection of ourselves.

  5. Energy that we send out (to the universe) will one day somehow comes back. Therefore, those who radiate positive energy will receive it right back. Moods, Vibration and Luck will improve.

  6. Reaction is the way we respond to those around us. This will determines our karma. Nothing happens by chance, everything that happens to us is so that we can learn something from it.

Nuevo, Xuan Kong Ai Xing + Xuan Kong Liu Fa (大玄空挨星 + 玄空六法)

Did you know that if you put DXKAX (大玄空挨星) together with XKLFAX (玄空六法挨星), you would end up with some wonderful formulas.

For example, KRY (坤,壬,乙) not only is the permutations of 8 and 2 being repeated, it fits nicely to upper and lower cycle (上元,下元) as well as it also a heaven, earth and man combination (天卦,地卦,人卦). Like wise for JGS (甲,癸,申) and YGD (寅,庚,丁).

And why KRY (坤,壬,乙) is much sort after in period 8 or lower cycle, is also partly because the Flying Stars (挨星) in this set up, points to Triple-Eight (8, 8, 8) in a XKLF (玄空六法) set up. That is partially why KRY (坤,壬,乙) 巨门从头出 talks about 巨门 – Star 2 but is extremely beneficial in period 8.

While the more forceful set up for either upper cycle or lower cycle (上元,下元) are ZMW (子,卯,未), GBX (艮,丙,辛), WYC (午,酉,丑).

The more elusive set up such as XQS (戌,乾,巳), onset it would look like there is no combination of 10 in the 2 numbers, neither is there any Early and Later Heaven links. A closer look, you will notice a 1, 4, 7 (父母三盘卦) linkage.

Year 2021 belongs to the Lower Cycle (下元). Therefore, when using GBX (艮,丙,辛), WYC (午,酉,丑); these sectors need to see mountain, hills, building or receive Qi (氣). And, when using JGS (甲,癸,申) or ZMW (子,卯,未); these sectors need to have a visual on water.


As the area of the the house / apartment getting smaller, this method of flying the stars around is a more efficient way of looking at Flying Stars (挨星).

Hopefully, one day commercial LuoPan (罗盘) – physical or as an Mobile App, can incorporate this 2 ring altogether.

For those who cannot commit this formula to memory, hopefully this quick guide is of help.
