CHINESE METAPHYSIC: ESSENTIAL FENG SHUI BASICS
Essential FengShui Basics, is a book designed with the English
Speaking students of Chinese Metaphysics, especially FengShui,
in mind. But even students of BaZi and Date selection will find
this book informative and could even hang on to it as a manual!
The contents of this book
look ordinary from the outside because these are the normal
basic subjects that a FengShui student needs to study before
going on to study the main body of FengShui formulas and methods
(and also other Chinese Metaphysic subjects).
But the information
contained within these subjects in this book is what sets it
apart from the generic basic FengShui books. There are no
special FengShui formulas offered in this book. But what is
offered is a vast body of knowledge that will help the
new (and even some experienced students) of FengShui to gain the
necessary foundation to be able to study ANY FORM of FengShui
(or other Chinese Metaphysic subjects) with ease.
I had noticed from my
participation in FengShui forums, that many English speaking
students of FengShui do not have a good foundation in these
subjects. It is mainly because whatever FengShui basics being
offered in contemporary English FengShui books do not emphasis
on these fundamentals.
Instead, most FengShui book
authors would only pay cursory attention to these fundamentals.
They would jump straight into offering FengShui formulas and
theories thinking that the students would be able to
understand. But that’s not the case.
How many times have YOU (as
a reader and student) read FengShui books and come out more
confused? How many times have you read these books and wondered
what are the Metaphysic theories that back up these FengShui
formulas or methods? Have you ever wondered that one needs to
have a good foundation in the basics before one can comprehend
and be proficient in FengShui theories and methods?
If you have wondered
before, you don’t need to wonder now! I have just the right
answer for you -- Chinese Metaphysics: Essential FengShui
There is invaluable
Metaphysic information in this book that is not commonly
available in English. Every chapter is packed with powerful
information to will help the student to become proficient in ANY
FORM of FengShui because these are really the foundation
knowledge of all FengShui methods.
I guarantee that YOU will
not regret buying this book. In future, readers may be thankful
that such invaluable information is now made available to the
English speaking FengShui enthusiast.
If you are a serious
student of FengShui, you should not miss this opportunity to
improve yourself. Buy this book now and give yourself a chance
to be a good FengShui practitioner!

Chapter 1 is all about the
meaning of FengShui. How the word FengShui came about and what
is its actual meaning. What are the different aspects of
FengShui. And whether FengShui is superstition or not.
Chapter 2 is on the History
of FengShui. This chapter is packed with vital information not
only on the ancient development of it, but also more recent
developments. There are short biographies of famous FengShui
personalities from Yang Jun Song to Jiang Da Hong, Shen Ju Ren
and Tan Yang Wu.
Chapter 3 is the Chinese
Calendar system. This chapter traces the development of the
Chinese Calendar system and its indispensable connection with
FengShui and other Metaphysic studies.
Chapter 4 is one of the
most crucial of chapters – Stems and Branches. In this chapter I
have put in extremely vital information on Stems and Branches
that are not commonly available in English. There is detailed
information on the history and development of Stems and
Branches; specific meanings and characteristics of each Stem and
Branch; its combinations and clashes; etc…..
Chapter 5 is on the 5
Elements – concepts and theories. The history and development
of 5 elements; its relationship with other phenomena; individual
meanings and characteristics; generation and control; birth and
death cycles; balances and imbalances; and 13 different types of
5 Element theories -- example Hong Fan 5 elements, NaJia 5
elements, BaGua 5 elements, etc.
Chapter 6 is all about the
Yin and the Yang of all phenomena. It traces the history and
development of Yin Yang philosophy and its expansion from the
TaiJi and integration into the BaGua, 5 elements and others.
Chapter 7 deals with the
Concept and Theory of Qi. This is one subject that is most
interesting. To the student of FengShui and the professional
practitioner, this subject is closest to heart. A FengShui
practitioner cannot be proficient if he/she does not have a good
grasp of what Qi is all about. This chapter touches on both the
philosophy and Metaphysics of Qi. It describes the origin of Qi,
Primordial Qi, and Qi as defined in FengShui.
Chapter 8 is the longest
chapter of this book – about 40 pages and close to 10,000 words
of jam packed information purely on the subject of HeTu and
LoShu. The information ranges from the historical development
to the different relationships with other phenomena and its
indispensable integration into Chinese Metaphysics. How the
HeTu is related to the Heavenly Stems and the BaGua; how the
LoShu is developed from the HeTu; etc….
Chapter 9 explores the
relationship between the YiJing, TaiJi and the BaGua. There is
detailed explanation on the TaiJi’s development into the BaGua.
There is also detailed explanation on the relationship of the
TaiJi with the YiJing.
Chapter 10 is most
interesting to the FengShui enthusiast who had never attended
practical courses before. It is a chapter dedicated to the
explanation of the LuoPan and on the practical usage of it.
Chapter 11 is the last
chapter of this book. But this chapter is most crucial for the
new students who are undecided about which type of FengShui
he/she wants to study. This chapter is all about the different
schools of FengShui. It has ample information about
contemporary FengShui schools. There is unbiased writing on my
part to give the students a fair view of all the different
contemporary FengShui schools so that they can decide which
school they like to learn from; or what combination of FengShui
schools (methods) that they want to learn. I promise that this
chapter will be most eye-opening to the new student of FengShui.
