Settle for no less than flawless.
Already a training history in Chinese metaphysics or your professional practice in full swing?
Either way, I would like to devote this page, so that you may see the distinctive approach that we keep to teaching. This will only help as you decide if our school and our approach to studies is for you.
As a serious practitioner, you can’t afford to commit any mistakes, certainly not if you work in name of others, perhaps your friends, students or clients.
What’s more, you wouldn’t be amused to be shown a technique, while a decade later came out, it was all erroneous. Why?
As you practice all in good faith, you trust that everything that you had learned thus far is flawless.
Yet, as you sit with pen and paper, can you see what decoys may dress up as genuine technique?
Let’s begin with Hetu Yellow River Map – as it must be one of foremost basics tools at all in any application system in Chinese metaphysics -, and see if it’s really intendedly the energetic map that it has been taken for (scroll).
Honestly? Not just with Hetu or the Chinese Ming Gua system, you may have been unknowingly employing decoys through exactly those ‘most trusted’ and ‘least to come under suspicion’ techniques.
As you may have a training history in Chinese metaphysics, you will find that we are not a chapter of other schools or to handle an extension of what others teach.

If you’re anything like me, you’d have at one point stepped into Oriental metaphysics ‘to get some answers’. At least, I know I did, in 1973.
Where I come from, however (YMMV), I’ll first demand that a system is effective, that it ‘puts its money where its mouth is’, so that it simply delivers what it preaches, and no less than that.
We first thoroughly handle formal teaching, then help you debunk decoys
As just you come with me for some brief moments, I’ll take you through the ‘crux’ of our school’s approach in how we transmit metaphysics and how (not) we treat art and student.
We’re a school, so rest assured that we teach every topic formally, painstakingly in full, along latest attained insights and everything cosmologically, historically and technically sound.
That’s also only what you’d expect, while this is first and foremost to achieve your full autonomy and competitiveness in the field, so that you can perform as a professional, as furthermore and before anything, I want that my students are equipped to take on any debate with just imaginably whomever (Chinese master or not) in the field, then come out a winner.
Hetu Yellow River Map
As just one example, you will have been shown Hetu Yellow River Map, as it was undoubtedly presented to you as an amalgamation of 9 Stars, i.e. those numbers in Hetu to bode energy.
It is not likely that you will have at any point questioned if then at all those Hetu Pairings 1-6, 2-7, 3-8 and 4-9 were indeed intendedly ‘energetic’, so that you may have taken Hetu numbers for ‘energetics’ (as in 9 Stars).
You would have then employed Hetu as such in your Flying Star Feng Shui work (or, equally as you would have relied on Hetu as an acupuncturist, or a martial artist).
You must decide whether a) the range 1-10 in Hetu is faithfully energetics – as in 9 Stars – or intendedly just numbers, as in arithmetics, while you need to decide if b) there’s at all any Wuxing (cycles) in those numbers, or things to ‘remedy’ in your employing Hetu for purpose of Flying Star Feng Shui.
Many sinologists have literally moved to live in Asia, if only to get to the bottom of Hetu and to finish their theses. If I were to show you what’s really behind Hetu, you wouldn’t go around the block over it. It is one of the neatest done smoke screens ever presented by the ancient scholars, so that you can continue to include it in your Feng Shui work for another decade, or you can also just dismiss it, as there’s convincingly not a shred of ‘energy’ there to begin with.
We will show you what device Hetu is to represent, then its purpose, in both our 9 Ki Divination and Fei Xing Feng Shui class.
If you’re anything like me, you would like to see the persistent ridiculing of ancient scholar, art, the defiance of logic, the juggling with students and clients to come to a halt finally.
Saying, once all of the formal teaching securely anchored in your toolbox, we will carefully point out where those decoys are, and we will do so unequivocally and in no uncertain terms.
Just so that we are on the same page on this: I wasn’t pointing to ‘misperception’ or just common ‘mistakes’, or even to differences that we might see occur in just ‘style’ or anyone’s perception of the art.
As Chinese metaphysics – notably Flying Star Feng Shui -, will be literally saturated with decoys, we are talking real deceptiveness in what would present itself as genuine technique, but which – once stripped to the bone – came out to be detrimental, all purposely done also.
One example of such a perhaps more ‘harmless’ decoy would be in the above discussed Hetu, whereas other decoys would be detrimental, and implemented for that exact purpose.
As serious practitioners, teachers or consultants, the last thing we want is to act as a vessel and to grant some of those smoke screens (red herrings) a free ride, the more as most come out to be just outright devious, but virtually undetectable, because dressed up as per definition as just the genuine technique that we had been practicing faithfully.
Our school has been raising the debunking of decoys into an art for almost 4 decades now.
If you are an attentive reader – and if you read in between the lines -, you’ll have seen one after the other indication in our published articles. Even though we publish our genuine class materials for everyone to learn, in mind current goings on ‘in the field’ we feel inhibited to discuss everything, as even our students agree that it would cause havoc in today’s field of metaphysics, and I don’t want to be at the base of that.
We take great joy therefore, in showing you handsomely once class door closes, no holding back.
It is because, only once decoys are exposed, could we rid of those and hope to lay bare the originally intended teaching.
It is interesting that there are basically two types of decoys, implemented in metaphysics, one done by the ancient scholar, the other by the ‘emperor’, whereas I think, as a professional, you should be able to spot either one.
Fast version, there’s a purpose for every red herring:
May mold a certain scientific observation into a decoy, for purpose of delayed learning in the student. In other words, you’ll be left to play with a certain something for over a decade or so, before you were shown the ‘real deal’, while all this time, your having employed by the hand of the smoke screen, wouldn’t have caused for any harm.
What I like to call the ‘devious emperor’, would take any scientific observation, then mold it to come to your immediate detriment. Not only would the sovereign seek to prevent rebellion at all costs, this way he would make sure to reap all benefits, to the expense of the populace.
You want to be shown the technique, just as much as you want to be shown the decoy in the technique.
We show you the ‘blood and bones’ of the decoy, so that you will recognize those smoke screens from 10 miles away, while then you’ll hear the ‘mechanics’ behind red herrings, so that from then on you’ll effortlessly set aside ‘detrimental’ decoys from the more ‘harmless’ ones, so that you may discontinue to transmit those onto others, such as perhaps in your work with students and clients.
More and more, students reach my school to tell me “I studied such and such, but as I sit with it, something seems not fitting”. I am glad each time I hear that, also as then I ask “what made you come to train”, some point to my publications “it said more than what was actually written, so I knew where to go”.
The ‘seal’ of the decoy is, that it purposely dresses up as genuine technique, then deliberately implemented in Chinese metaphysics – often for not the most noble purposes -, where it ‘survives’.
The other ‘mark’ of the decoy is, well, once not recognized as such by the teacher, it will be passed on only the more to students, some of which will at one point decide to step forward as a teacher.
Problem with decoys is…
What’s stealthily there, is exactly that:
It really actually remains stealthily.
It doesn’t need be so.
Until in Fei Xing Feng Shui we have learned to indefinitely ‘trust’ H2O inside a house, or as we sleep with bedroom doors and windows closed, or as certain Flying Star charts remain completely unsuspect, such as the Fu Mu San Ban Gua house, which has in fact become the most trusted and relied upon structure, or other ‘special’ Flying Star charts that would present as ‘energetics’, but had come from just numbers juggling.
Others would commit such errors
It is only natural that you should think that “sure, but if at all any, those decoys would be harmlessly there in those more obvious and for everyone to see misfits”, so that others perhaps – then not you – would have failed to notice.
In a perfect world, you would be right and just you would carry on with your practice.
I’m the last one to break any spell, but truth is, decoys would be stealthily there in exactly of course some of those most faithfully relied on and least to come under suspicion approaches (or it wouldn’t be an effective decoy to begin with).
It simply means that – and it is disconcerting -, what may have once seemed beneficial, may on closer scrutinization come out to be intendedly harmful, and we couldn’t afford any of that in our practice.
It is imperative that you should see those decoys one after the other, some of which will be squarely out on anyone’s disintegration.
The ancient scholars no fools or backward folk
The ancient scholars and founding fathers of the application systems in Chinese metaphysics were your finest astronomers, mathematicians and physicists, and they would have remained faithful to their scientific observations, but annexed by the devious emperor.
The Chinese imperial environment was not a ‘romantic’ setting to be in. It is quite easy – as you don’t need to be a rocket scientist for that – to lay bare what decoys had been devised by those scholars, but still defensible and for noble purposes, while, if you had been employing by the hand of those smoke screens, you wouldn’t have caused for any real harm, outside you could perhaps feel a bit ‘awkward’ for not having noticed a bit earlier.
It is different, where the emperor had demanded all scientific knowledge to himself, to then mold the genuine technique just until, well, what you thought was to come to your benefit, now came to your detriment.
Make no mistake, as this was all to ensure that no-one would come into rebellion, so that the sovereign could reap all authority, all riches to himself.
In all fairness, if you were the emperor, wishing peace and quiet all across your country, this can be achieved, if you know how to disintegrate the population, so that everyone’s too weak – or too petrified – to even still think for himself.
You want to stop being a vassal of the ‘emperor’ – for lack of better wording – and to involuntarily doing his work for him, by extending the (in the meantime centuries old, albeit thus far never shattered) scheme for even one minute longer.
Chinese Ming Gua (it’s a big deal)
Have you been transposing just the 9 Ki Star for year of birth of your female clients to a ‘Gua’ number for purpose of compatibility and house divination in Feng Shui?
We will show you what exactly has been behind the Chinese Ming Gua system.
Every single teacher – Chinese masters first – will have been – or ought to be – aware in the mean time, that the Chinese Ming Gua system was a deliberate falsification.
With as its sole purpose, the disintegration of people.
Tang emperor Xuánzōng [玄宗] (685-762 AD) who wasn’t such a sweet character, had ordered monk Yīxíng [一行] to come up with a misfit to please the Mongolian officials for having earlier requested that they could lend the ‘Feng Shui Classics’ of the blossoming Dynasty.
Besides I’ll give just a synopsis on topics for you to ponder as you scroll, only to concern of the Chinese Ming Gua system, I’ve seen 4 hypotheses thus far as to what exactly monk Yi Xing would have done to come up with a male descending cycle and a female ascending cycle to coincidentally conjoin at ‘Gua’ 3:
We’ll show you exactly what monk Yi Xing had done to ‘serve’ his emperor, while as early as with master Céng Gōng Ān 曾公安 – who was a disciple of master Yáng Yún Sōng 楊筠松 and in the Chinese Feng Shui Classic “Qīng Náng Xù” 青囊序 (Green Satchel Order) -, he goes on to explain how then the emperor seeks to satisfy the request, but consults with monk Yixing and orders him to come up with a Feng Shui Classic, but a false one. Céng – in an attempt to unveil the code – then presumes:
只 因 一行擾 外國
Zhǐ yīn Yī xíng rǎo wài guó
For reason of bothering a foreign country Yixing
Suì bǎ wǔ xíng diān dǎo biān
inversed the Five Phases by upsetting them in reversed order
yǐ ‘é-chuán’é jìng bù míng
in a composite of unclear errors throughout
Suǒ yǐ huò fú wèi hú biān
as a result governing fortune and misfortune for Hú
(Rǎo – 擾 – here translated as ‘to bother’, as it gives a sense of ‘interfering with’, ‘disturbing’, it has the connotation of ‘upsetting’, ‘harass’).
But, as much as we can celebrate Céng Gōng Ān for having noted the falacy, he missed target here entirely, as no ‘unclear errors’ or ‘juggling with Wuxing’ coming from monk Yixing at all, as we have finally unlocked monk Yixing’s little trick.
Monk Yixing wouldn’t have juggled with Wuxing Five Transformations at all, as also, he wouldn’t have been playing with Eight Trigrams – as was presumed by yet others -, which is only a dead give away, as his listing makes mention of ‘Gua 5’, while we know that #5 is not able to signify a Trigram.
It took me 11 years to debunk Ming Gua, then lay bare exactly what monk Yi Xing had done to come up with his code, and it is rather disconcerting. What he did, also makes sense, arithmetically of course, as he was one of finest mathematicians to have ever been brought forth by China.
What you need to know at the very least is, that Ming Gua’s range of 1-9 is to depict just numbers, and that it was in no way to handle energetics, as in 9 Stars.
Bottom line is, if you knew that Ming Gua was to set out for the disintegration of people, can you guesstimate just how many women you’d have in the mean time transposed just their 9 Ki Star for year of birth in favor of a ‘Gua’, then, how many would have followed up on your advise as to marriage compatibility, directionology?
I take great pride in my students whom are courageous enough to take everything they had picked up along the way for sometimes 2+ decades, then commit surgery (see next image), until they’re able to see things for what they are, then able to dismiss what needs to be dismissed.
In my view, this is the only way by which a school can help a) to let the Chinese metaphysical field survive on the long run, while it’s the only way to b) stop the ridiculing.
You wish to quit to unknowingly perform on the basis of decoys and get back to what the ancient scholars had in mind.
