Classic Feng Shui

A Millennial Wisdom
Classic Feng Shui also called Traditional Feng Shui was developed in China, and its methods are referenced in the classics. It is characterized by the system of lineages in which practice is passed from master to student over many generations.

The primary goals of Classic Feng Shui are to enhance the visible side of life such as prosperity, wealth, or performance and recognition in society, and enhance practitioners' life support ie health, family ties or inner development. For this, energy maps of a house are elaborated taking into account its orientations and the exterior forms measured with the traditional Chinese compass, the luo pan. After analyzing the characteristics of the housing, changes and cures are made to improve these aspects.

There are two classical feng shui schools, the san yuan (three periods) and the san hee (three harmonies). Both use the two methods "luan tou" - shape and "di li" - direction. San he is characterized by an in-depth study of the outer forms and respective directions in relation to the house. It is sometimes referred to as the "school of form." San yuan considers time and direction as the two fundamental vectors and is sometimes referred to as "compass school". Another widely used term is the term Xuan Kong which is almost synonymous with San Yuan.

Characteristic calculations of the style san yuan are for example the Flying Stars (Xuan Kong Fei Sin), surely the most popular method of feng shui in the actuality. In a simple analysis of flying stars one can usually determine with great precision the fate of the inhabitants with the advantage of being able to intervene and modify the course of events. This analysis constitutes a true astrological map of the house where the favorability of a house or a particular room may change from year to year. The cures are simple and quite effective. The most complex form of San Yuan is Xuan Kong Da Gua which, using 64 directions (64 hexagrams), is used to make or evaluate precise alignments of Yin and Yang or Water and Mountain. Other important calculations of this school include Zi Bai Jue (Purple White Script) and Xuan Kong Liu Fa. The san yuan style is currently predominant due to the typically urban environment of today.

The san he school with calculations such as Ba Zhai (eight houses or groups east) and the ascending water method (Water Dragon), is of great use when we organize the space around a house such as a garden or a fifth.
