"classical wisdom, modern inspirations"
Instead of making feng shui remedies simple, ignorant, few prefer the complicated route by dressing their office like a chinese restaurant. There are 2 major types of “negative” feng shui energy. The visible forms 形煞 and invisible energy 煞气. Bad forms are things that we can see e.g. T-junctions, convex roads, constructions etc. Invisible ones are based on qi 气 calculation from energy management 理气 feng shui schools such as San Yuan 三元, Qi Men 奇门遁甲, Xuan Kong 玄空 flying star, Purple Star 紫白 and many others.
From abstract to tangible 化无形为有形
The subject of feng shui is abstract. You need faith to appreciate what the feng shui master do for you. For me i prefer to use ordinary items as feng shui remedies to deflect or reduce bad energies. What i try to do over here is to transform “abstract” belief into “tangible” energy. In feng shui jargon call 化无形为有形 or 化虚为实. You can call turning virtual into reality.
In-depth Feng shui 5-element principles
To some who do not understand the profound concept of feng shui will cling onto an expensive talisman, lucky stone, jadeite or “kai guang” items believing like magic cure. They believed that the more expensive is the item, the more powerful is the cure. They mock and criticise common items such as potted plants, pebbles, doormat, paintings, clock, air-condition, mirrors, fan and even repositioning of furniture…etc.
Feng shui 5 elements are not limited to colour (which most would know) but taste, smell, fruits, vegetable, shape, material etc. In advanced feng shui we use this symbolism that i mentioned to mitigate negative energies. E.g. 6 round copper coin symbolic to heaven qian gua 乾卦 or even certain “sound” to represent metal-element. Pink, bitterness, liquor, corn麦, goat represents fire, heart, loose-shape 散 etc. The list goes on.
To quote I Ching (伏羲氏、神农氏、黄帝) 易传, 系辞下: 近取诸身, 远取诸物
5 Key methods to remedy negative energy
Any feng shui methods that does not deploy as least one or combination below is not authentic feng shui:
(a) hide 遮 ( b) block 挡 (c) dilute 化 (d) fight 鬥 (usually for business feng shui ) and (e) avoid 避
Qi Men Dun Jia 奇门遁甲 standard methodology
Qi Men Dun Jia 奇门遁甲 uses 3 standard mitigation protocol. They are destroying, repair or move 拆补移. First method destroys items that causes bad energy e.g. clearing of rubbish. Secondly repair damage goods e.g. a cracked wall. Lastly move, relocate items that is not suitable in that sector.
Power of visualisation 意象 in feng shui
Household items that were used as feng shui cures fufill iChing symbolism such as colour, shape, material. Take for instance warmonger flying star 7 is a metal element, just placing a glass of water is sufficient to dilute the negative energy. On the flip side of the coin when one see a sword without it’s scabbard or headless painting it sends shiver down our spine. In Chinese we call 有其形必有其象 meaning when there is “form” there is always symbolism or representation.
