Shackelford's Feng Shui Software
The Feng Shui Professional
program has been developed in conjunction with the various Feng Shui experts of
the Feng Shui for Modern Living magazine, especially Stephen Skinner who, as
editor and author, was the first person to introduce Feng Shui to the Western
World with his ground-breaking book "The Living Earth Manual"
published in 1982.
The program has had over ten years of continuous
development, and has been tested and tried by a number of Feng Shui experts,
including Derek Walters and Jon Sandifer. New features are being developed each
year - the program now includes a Floor
Plan drawing feature, Flying Star Cures and Enhancements and a number of
other new features - click here for
It was also chosen as the program to be sold in
conjunction with Master C.S. Chang's "Feng Shui Practitioner's Kit"
from the Realm of Feng Shui at http://www.trofs.com.
The program provides lots of
information on each aspect of Feng Shui - whether it is the Four Pillars
astrology, the I Ching divination or the different Feng Shui schools - Compass
or Black Hat, or even the Japanese version of Feng Shui called Nine Star Ki.
The Expert and Professional versions provide more
complex Feng Shui features such as Flying
Star Feng Shui and an 18-ring Lo Pan
USING THE PROGRAM
It is very easy to get
started with the program - it is a standard Windows systems, with "Point
and Click" using the Mouse. Once the program has been installed, just move
the Mouse around the Window and Click on the Buttons.
Almost every picture or icon
that you see on the screen is "Live" - which means if you hover the
Mouse over it, a caption will be displayed with some useful information, and
quite often if you Double Click on it - a new window will 'pop-up' with lots
more useful information.
If you are get stuck, confused
or not sure what to do - email
print outs are designed so that you can build up files about each client, with a
summary of the details from each screen, so that you can refer to the data when
making the specific reports for the client.
In particular, the Pa Kua and Ba Guas are designed as large black and white
diagrams which are used when checking out rooms to make notes on.
The program is a powerful tool to speed up the process of calculating, reading
and interpreting Feng Shui, but should not replace the individual consultant's
personal experience - this is what your clients are paying for - the personal
touch, not just a pre-formatted standard report.
So the reports do NOT have any interpretation on them - as this is dependent on
the theories, ideas, experience and training of the individual consultant - each
Master has slightly different ideas as to what the readings mean. Any
interpretations that I would have are unlikely to match what you would interpret
from your experience, or indeed from your understanding of the individual
FENG SHUI and CHINESE ASTROLOGY
Remember that Chinese
Astrology is based on thousands of years of use, and although many of the
readings may appear vague, obscure or irrelevant, this is because they are
designed to let you get into your subconscious. They are valuable because you
need to interpret the Feng Shui readings to match your current situation.
You need not take any of the readings too seriously, and you should apply common
sense to any actions you take as a result.
