Dear all my friends,
How to apply Flying Star Feng Shui-Xuan Kong (Part 5)
How to read a proper Feng Shui Lou Pan.
You now need to know how to use a lou pan to take the necessary basic readings needed for the Flying Star Feng Shui. Regardless you are lucky to have a good luo pan, made one yourself, or have a hiking compass, you have to get familiar with it. The following instructions apply to a proper lou pan. If you are using a trekking compass, skim down until you find the those instructions instead.
How to read a tradition luo pan.
How to find out, for example, which direction the front door or your house faces? First stand inside just about 1-2 feet facing directly your front door, hold the lou pan level with both hand. If necessary, place one edge of the square outer plate of the compass firmly againt the wooden door. Using your thumbs, turn the disk slowly till the needles lines up with the line on the bottom of the well. Look closely at the figure below. Make sure that the end of the needle with the bulge lines up between the two dots on the bottom of the well (see figure).

If you find this all a bit wobbly, then place the compass on a wooden support at waist level. Do not use a tripod that is made of magnetic metal, as this will severly distort the accuracy of your reading.
Make sure you are holding the whole compass level; more sophisticated lou pan from Taiwan often incorporate spirit levels so that you can be sure that they are perfectly level.
Now look at the crosshairs. Look along the crosshair to the part closer to the door. When it crosses the ring of the 24 Mountains, this is your facing direction. You sitting direction is always the part closer to you and always exactly opposite the facing direction.
How to read a trekking compass
Stand with your back to the door. Hold the compass level and steady.
# If it is a simple compass, turn it till the needle head points to north. Read the number of degrees at the point furthest away from the door. This is the facing bearing.
# If it is a sophisticated military compass with a sight, look out from the door at the point directly in front of the door. Read off the number of degrees. This is the facing bearing.
The the facing bearing and look it up in the following table. Read off the facing direction. For example a facing of 94 degrees would yield a facing direction of Mao.

Special Lou Pan reading consideration
Magnetic interference. This is often indicated by the needle swinging backward and forward a lot before settling down. It is usually caused by the presence of metal or electrical items.
A few months back which started early this year, I started to feel moody at my own home. Bad thing keeps happening and recurring. I do not know what was wrong in my home. I only know that it getting worst. What else to do . I search over the web for clue.
Then, I was lucky as I came to know www.skillon.com which provide do-it-yourself feng shui step by step. First get the age of the house 2. get the facing bearing. That is all. Go the the chart and plot it. But I tell you what I do not quite understand what they means (on the chart) but luckily they provide a "ask master Peter" section" where you can actually ask feng shui questions directly to the master. free of charge.
I am better off now. Ladies you all should try it. I heard that a few of my friends here have tried out feng shui diy at www.skillon.com Please update me on the outcome. And I will inform all in this blog. Thanks to its founder Mr. Jimmy Yap Siew Wui
