Today, we have access to a wealth of Eastern philosophy regarding shifting energy in our environment. Knowing exactly what school of thought to follow can be confusing for some. In this article, I will discuss flying star Feng Shui also known as Xuan Kong.
Xuan Kong school of thought gives us more detail to the Bagua numbers we see each year. For example, you may wonder why the number of center square stays the same for twenty years, while the stars (numbers) shift each year. The Lunar Chinese New Year usually begins around January 25th each year and follows the Lunar (Moon) calendar, where Xuan Kong school of thought follows the Solar Calendar New Year which usually is recognized around February 5th. You will see the Fireworks festival each year in Hong Kong around this time, and a time of celebration with the Dragon Dance.
The one thing that sets Xuan Kong apart from other forms of Feng Shui analysis is the considering of a time factor when examining energies in our home or office. Energies can change even within the hour. So, Xuan Kong is a more detailed way to analyze an area of your space to see what the energy influence may be at anytime of the day, week, or hour.
Why we might want to know what the energies are about at different times of the day? Most business people enjoy these aspects of Xuan Kong, because they can know if their office has supportive energy for sales. They can even read the energies in an area to know where to hold sales meetings to make sure the energy is suitable for presenting their ideas!
Sometimes, we need to know a more detailed chart specifically knowing if our space is subject to ghosts. YES, I said ghosts! Are you a teacher? A Feng Shui audit of a home can let you know if the home is suitable for your career, not just for teachers but anyone with importance on their career.
In all forms of Feng Shui analysis the five elements along with concepts of Yin and Yang are used to determine how to manage life giving and uplifting Qi (Ch-ee).
