Case Study of Xuan Kong Da Gua Feng Shui for Tilting a Main Door

Posted on March 25, 2024 by Derelle Ball

For those of you who are interested in finding out a little more about the practical application of Xuan Kong Da Gua (XKDG) Feng Shui, I thought I’d share this case study from my own personal experience.

Our main door used to face 81 degrees East (which is an untimely door facing orientation according to XKDG during the current lower time cycle).  Back in 2013 we decided to replace the door and during that process I also convinced the installer to tilt the angle of the door (as you can see via the wedge shape on the left side of the image below), so that it now faces towards 87 degrees East, which connects to a timely Zheng Shen facing Hexagram during the current lower time cycle (until 3 Feb 2044).


The image above is taken from inside the tilted doorway with the wedge shape on the left side providing the ability to tilt the door angle.


The image above was taken from outside the tilted door.  Note: the wedge shape on the bottom left of the door which enabled the tilt. 

The red mat helps offset the view of the tilted door from outside and it’s interesting to note, since tilting the door in 2013, nobody ever seems to notice it has been tilted.  Even a property valuer friend who visited our home recently had not noticed until we mentioned it, and even then, he assured us it did not in any way affect the value of our property.

The door was rehung/rebirthed at the new tilted facing orientation of 87 degrees East, at 7:30am (Brisbane Australia time) on 28 May 2013. 

During this time frame all the Hexagrams of time aligned with the same Qian Kun family of Hexagrams, (which included the Father Hexagram, one son Hexagram and some daughter Hexagrams from the Qian Kun family).  This is important because you cannot have all male or all female Hexagrams as balance between Yin and Yang is needed.  When all the Hexagrams belong to the same family, it is called blood-link and this is considered to be very auspicious.

The new door facing orientation of 87 degrees faces the same Hexagram as my husband’s year of birth Hexagram and the red pot was transformed into a water feature, with water travelling up through the centre of the pot  in a Ling Shen location (when measured from the centre of the door) that communicated very well with the door. 

At the time, I didn’t want a continual long term water feature there due to the presence of the inherent Water star 4 and Annual 4 according to the Fei Xing (Flying Star) Feng Shui energy flow of the home and property, so only had the water feature running there for a specific period of time when the energy of time blood-linked with the Qian Kun family of Hexagrams.  At that time I was busy teaching and writing Feng Shui reports for clients and our children were attending University, so we made productive use of the activated Water Star 4 Qi.  

Note: since the original door tilt in 2013, we have extended our home and the Water Star 9 is now entering from this external doorway of our Period of 7 home.

Before we tilted and rebirthed the main entry, my husband had been in the same managerial role for a number of years and was keen to move up the ladder of leadership.  The same evening after we’d rebirthed and tilted the main door, he was invited to a dinner with the visiting US management group of his business and was promoted to an international managerial role. 

Our children have also successfully graduated University and embarked on their own individual careers.

I’ve also used XKDG for specific date selection regarding grand openings, launching new products and services, opening a new business bank account, signing important contracts and so on.

To further enhance the luck potential of a main entry, it helps to cross-check the XKDG Zheng Shen door facing Hexagram and Ling Shen Hexagram water feature communication with Master Yang Yun Song’s 'Shui Long Fan Gua' (9 Star Water Method). 

Although these are 2 completely different methods for strategic water placement in relation to an external door, I have found that when you have water tapping into a Ling Shen Hexagram location that communicates well with a Zheng Shen facing door PLUS it happens to also be located within a favourable water dragon Qi (such as Ju Men or Tan Lang for example), the activation of XKDG timing for the door and water orientation and location tends to open additional doors to abundance opportunity for the household.  This is especially potent if the door facing Hexagram communicates favourably with the Day or Year of birth Hexagram for the main breadwinner in the household.

You can see from the image above, the new tilted door now faces towards 87 degrees which connects with a 9/7 timely Zheng Shen facing Hexagram (which is the same Hexagram connected to my husband’s year of birth).  Note: the house faces Jia 81 degrees while the tilted main door faces Mao 87 degrees.

FYI I'm currently in the process of writing an Ebook course explaining the practical application of Master Yang Yun Song's 9 Star Water Method for enhancing the luck potential of a strategically placed water feature in connection with an external door for a home and/or business.  Let me know if you are interested in this :-)
