1 X Feng Shui Compass 80 mm Square and 1 x Ba Gua Mirror 66 mm Diameter
As a protective device a ba gua mirror can be hung with the mirror side facing towards the negative source. They can be hung inside or outside a building. The mirror is a weapon against Sha. One mirror may be enough but some homes and businesses use as many as four or five.
Some typical situations that a ba gua mirror may be used to remedy are:
- A cemetery, mortuary or other negative place is located across the street from your home or business.
- The corner of the neighboring building is pointed at your front door.
- The building across the street burned down.
- An electrical transformer box is near your property.
- Your property is being vandalized or trespassed against.
- The walkway to your front door is linear with no fence or curves to intercept negative energy.
- Your desk is at the end of a long hall.
- You must sit with your back to the room entrance.
(Solution: Place the ba gua mirror on the wall you are facing so that the energy of anyone entering is caught by the mirror
THE Luo Pan: Traditional Compass used in Feng Shui.
The Luo Pan or (Lo'pan) uses the moving needle and an external plate full of information that is adjusted manually. This compass usually has 2 strings that cut the plate into 4 sections indicating with precision the simultanous lectureof the front, the seat and both lateral positions as the 4 animal protectors of feng shui. There are different types of Lo'pan that differ primarily in the type of rings that they incorporate, we can find traditional models designed for the San Yuan, San He branch, aswell as made especially for some particular masters' preferences.
We can see that besides the central magnetic needle there are also several concentric rings filled with information. On them are written dispositions like the 8 trigrams, the 8 directions, the 24 directions or mountains, astrological data as the 28 constellations, the celestial trunks, the earthly branches, and many other concepts that are applied to the art of feng shui.
Some of the informative rings of the traditional Luo Pan are used in the "Yin" field of feng shui, which is oriented to buriels and the locating of tombs. Today the majority of the masters focus their study in the "Yang " field also known as the study of the dwelling of the living, like houses, shops, etc..
In addition to the analog compasses above, today we count on digital compasses that offer a fast lecture, but if we go out to remote and inhospitable places with the classic compass, we have the advantage of having always energy available!.
In previous lines we have provided examples of several compasses in ascending order, from one affordable with a moving needle, passing through a medium model with rotating disk finally reaching the Luo Pan. If you want to buy a compass that will give you some guarantees for the lecture, these are some details to consider:
One aspect to consider is the scale or precision of the degrees, in this sense the smaller the scale the more exact is the reading, the recommended minimum is generally of 2 in 2 degrees and the recommended for professional readings is to have a scale of 1 degree or even of ½ degree.
In this regard a decent Luo Pan helps to an accurate reading given the width of the plate. (see photo)
