Although the Liu Fa Feng Shui people like to try to keep their theories secret, it is not difficult to penetrate what they are doing. The 6 Methods of Liu Fa can be discerned in a case analysed by Tan Yang Wu in 24th September 1946 for a Mr. Li Dao-Ke.
Li has asked Tan for advice on a family who was suffering misfortune in recent years. Tan gave his diagnosis as follows:
Tan also noted Mr Li's description that the owner is a man with virtue heart and wholesome conducts. His family was previous prosperous. However, for the last three to four years, the family encountered all sorts of misfortune. The parents and his youngest son passed away, female family member(s) remarried, someone drowned. Some suffered stubborn skin disease and some have been bed ridden. Owing to expenses for these misfortune, the man has spent all his savings.
Tan Yang Wu's Advice
Tan gave a short writeup of the pertinent aspects and advice for this case:
In Period-4, this setup causes conflict in Yin and Yang. Thus, illnesses damaged the good health.
The 6 Methods in Tan's Advice
The basic chart illustrating the 3rd principle of the Jin Lung (Golden Dragon), is as follows:
Applying the 1st principle of Xuan Kong (Mysterious Void, Tai Chi), in Period 4, Mountain Dragon (Yin) is at NW, and Water Dragon (Yang) is at SE.
From the 2nd Cixiong (Female Male) principle, it is found that the house, instead of sitting on a Mountain sector, sits in the Water Dragon (Yang) sector. This is in conflict from the Yin Yang principle and is inauspicious.
In Period 8, the Mountain Dragon is at SW, while the Water Dragon is at NE.
According to the 6th principle of Tai Sui (Jupiter), in the Dog and Pig Years, Tai Sui is at W-NW. Thus, the house will face Tai Sui and is inauspicious.
Tan's advice about changing the door is based on this principle:
However, in Period 6 the Water Dragon is at Qian NW, which fits the original array of this house. The main door can be re-opened in this Period 6.
It should be noted that the changes in the positions of the "doors" may be interpreted through the "7 Stars Robbery" theory of the 4th principle of the Ai Xing (Changing Stars). For the Period 4, the San Pan Gua is 1-4-7. Thus, Tan Yang Wu had recommended the shift of door to Kan (1) and opening holes at the SouthEast wall (4). Apparently, there was no way to activate "7".
Is this Liu Fa Case Analysis Correct?
The above case is quite simple and illustrative of how the 6 Methods are applied. Many would probably refrain from negative comments owing to lack of understanding of Xuan Kong Liu Fa Feng Shui.
However, as the Lui Fa people like to claim they follow Yang Yun Sung's teachings, we will analyse from what Yang Yun Sung really wrote.
Yang Yun Sung's hsueh and Ming Tang has the Four Heraldic Beasts format, which has a South facing. In Yang Yun Sung's Han Lung Jing and Yi Lung Jing, the East facing is an alternative but less potent than the South facing.
The Green Satchels and Tian Yu Jing have been badly misunderstood by Feng Shui practitioners. At the best, Tan's advice should be modified in that, instead of changing the doors, activation rituals should be performed in the said sectors.
There is also a serious error in the computation of the Tai Sui. This is because, due the precession of the equinoxes, the stars and planets positions have changed over the past thousands of years. The last change in the Chinese astrological Zodiac signs was made in the Han dynasty, when the new year sign was changed from Chou to Yin. Now, 2,000 years since, the sign should be changed from Yin to Mao. As it is, the current Chinese calendars still use Yin as the starting of the New Year. The real positions of Tai Sui will have to be adjusted one sign.
There is also an error in the computation of the Yun. The Saturn-Jupiter conjunction has jumped 2 cycles since the time of Yao 4,000 years ago. Hence, the real Yun has to be shifted two places. It is no longer Yun 8 but Yun 1!
This article shows that Feng Shui is much more complicated than either the Lui Fa group or Fei Xing group realised. As expounded by Tang grandmaster Yang Yun Sung in his monumental books, there are complex inter-relationships between the Form and Compass approaches. All will do well to cooperate and recover the original Feng Shui.
