Besides the general design (or landscape) school, the expressiveness of the compass-school is decisive for
authentic Feng Shui. The measuring results with the Luo Pan (Chinese compass) help you to gain an insight
into the quality of a building, an apartment, a place or square.
San He and San Yuan are the classical systems of authentic Feng Shui.
Right in front of the entrance of the object to be analysed, the qualities of the surrounding structures (houses, waterways, streets) with their Qi-qualities flowing in and out are checked. Here is a clipping from the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin...
San He comprises all scenic forms and influences. The structures vary in form, outline, movement and direction and thus in their quality. In big cities, applied Feng Shui normally starts with aligning the door of your house or apartment. Calculations follow with which you calculate the arrangement of houses, streets and other objects. The Ba Zhai, or the 8 house - Feng Shui gives the practitioner further information about the quality of the entrance or the rooms. The system of San He includes many possibilities to energize the potential of the rooms and landscapes for your own benefit. For a good and effective Feng Shui the system of San Yuan should always be included.
San Yuan comprises the teachings of time aspects. The qualities undergo a change. Over the years, a place, a house or a room loses energy and gains new ones to that. Qualities become displaced.
