In this article, we dive into the materials and methods used to design the Creative Force Bagua Pendant. This is a deep look into how we made a highly sophisticated rendering of a hexagram design common to many ancient traditions. We are also sharing both the physical and metaphysical intricacies of our pendant design which has evolved from a decade of research and development, as well as a lifetime love of the arts.
Bagua Pendant Design – Materials and Methods
25mm clear glass magnifying cabochon
It seems like an obvious choice because this glass cabochon is energetically aligned with the subtle fields. It is an ancient material and has energetic properties. Glass is a melding of the traditional four elements by fire, air and earth silica and is transmuted into a liquid only for it to return to a seemingly solid state. The dome shape allows for it to focus the energies into its wearer.
It carries the energies of transformation, merging the energies of rebirth, focus, and communication. Silica is the most abundant element after oxygen. When purified, it enhances communication, the agility of thought and grace. It is used to sharpen mental activity and focus. It is also said to promote discrimination for the truth from conflicting information. It enhances and accentuates positive energies for all situations. It is known to be a “master healer” and strengthens vitality, precisely the ingredient needed for any effective bagua pendant.

25mm Sterling Silver bezel tray
Number 47 on the periodic table as Argentum. A non-ferrous metal which promotes magnetic beneficial energies and was selected for this reason primarily. It is a natural conductor of heat and electricity. It can be used to charge objects. It is said to manifest wealth, riches, and health. Silver improves the quality of speech and brings eloquence to conversations. It is a calming and balancing metal. It reflects negativity and brings the wearer more in tune with the universe. It is a mirror to the soul.
Silver increases a strength of perception and provides a connection between the physical and the planes of existence. Through modern testing, it has a confirmed antimicrobial quality.

The Creative Force bagua pendant design consists of unique circular hexagrams in a specific pattern: Each position or ‘real estate lot’ on the circle has 5.625º or arc width for its domain. Each circle hexagram is created from the 5.625º additively starting from equatorial North clockwise. Each angle/azimuth is correlated with a hexagram meaning taken from the I-Ching.
Bagua Hexagram Positioning
For The Creative Force bagua pendant design to be effective as a energetic piece of art, it is required to be energetically aligned. Based on a longitudinal wave and utilizing a grid, eight by eight, the artist filled in the matrix using ‘hard’ or rigid archetypal energies of nature at the edges to ‘soft’ or malleable archetypal energies of nature towards the center. The two most polarized energies are of heaven (masculine) and of the earth (feminine).
The pair of thirty-two hexagrams energies were then arranged clockwise. If studied, you will note from the longitudinal axes at the top, the hexagrams arrange themselves from the polarized or ridged to the to the rarefied and from the rarefied to the ridged. The motion goes: very ridged – somewhat ridged- somewhat rarified- very rarified=very rarified – somewhat rarified – somewhat ridged – very ridged OR very rarified – somewhat rarified – somewhat ridged – very ridged = very ridged – somewhat ridged- somewhat rarified -very rarified. It just depends on the motion, if it is expressing a counter-clockwise motion or clock-wise motion to the arrangement.

Then, the two rigid archetypes rejoin again by way of the longitudinal axis (the North South axis) or Heaven (male energies) and Earth (female energies). When one builds the circular hexagrams this way, the energies are as if you are the stars looking down on earth or the Universal Energies. To achieve the human view, the artist, flipped the arrangement 180º to mirror the cosmos. It is the old: 1/x = x/1 = 1.
In doing this flip it more closely resembled the lessons learned in physical radiesthesia, Harmonia and Feng Shui. Ironically, this intuitively woven arrangement by the artist is known as the Fu Xi Arrangement or Pre-Heaven Arrangement or the Xiantian Bagua and the He Tu. So yes! While nothing new was invented and is at the very least over four thousand centuries old, the artist has very strong verification for their work processes based on precedent. There is another classic arrangement of the hexagrams known as the King Wen Arrangement or the Lo Shu for instance, but it is this Pre-Heaven’s particular sequence identified that is the most accurate with the positioning of the primordial archetypes due to the holistic approach of the natural science research.
The Composition and Proportion of the Bagua Creative Force Pendant Design
Drawing on the research of Plato, Bigollo, Tesla, and Rodin with their work with the 369 Sequence and the Fibonacci Series and Prime Numbers, the artist utilized the numbers that have a dampening or nodal effect for centering similar to the Golden Ratio of Phi 1.618. Where the 3,6,9 Series numbers match the Fibonacci Series numbers along with another system using arc degrees, minutes, and seconds where subtraction reduction reveals a Prime Number, it reveals yet another series of numbers one can use to create the proper environment for centering in varying degrees of intensity.
This was developed by radiesthesia testing and again, verified by earlier documentation in: A History of the Chinese, Book III, by Xu Bing says:
“…Then come the five sovereigns: First Fo-Hi, the inventor of the writing, to whom the Dragon transmits a roller on which there were drawings of the eight trigrams or the Bagua representing: The Sky, Male, black. Vapor, stagnant water, red. Fire, light, orange. Thunder, yellow. Wind , green. Water, blue. Mountains, indigo. Earth, Female, violet.”
The passage was originally checked or tested by the early 20th Century French physicist, Louis Turenne, utilizing physical radiesthesia and documented in his book: From the Rod to the Detector of Prospectors, Scientific methods for Checking All Natural Waves, 1942. It is also documented a bit differently by the English author, philosopher, and scientist Christopher Hills, in his book: Supersensonics, 1975 in the beginning of the last quarter of the 20th Century. In both of those books, they both describe the colors in ‘order of disintegration’ (think the position of colors in the rainbow) and that it matched the Ancient Chinese descriptions!
This archetypal disintegration series was then used to create the color formulas of each hexagram, four colors each denoting Heaven and Earth’s interaction. Two colors of the electric or Heaven realm and two colors of the magnetic or Earth realm creating a synthesized electro-magnetic color. The artist calls it The Child Energy or the specific angular etheric energy, the cosmic energy. The Chinese Taoist call these three Energies “The Pure Ones”. They are Male or Heaven or Universal Force corresponding to the upper tan tien or shen or spirit and cosmic energies; the Mother or Earth or Physical Force corresponding to the lower tan tien or jing or physical yin force; and the Child or Cosmic Force, the Higher Self or chi corresponding to the middle tan tien .
The Color Formulas
To make the bagua pendant design into The Creative Force, color formulas were painstakingly calculated using the Ancient Chinese musical ratios. The Ancient Ratio was rediscovered/reconfirmed after the unearthing of the Zeng Hou-Yi Bells in 1978. This set of bells, the Bian Zhong, was buried in the tomb of Marquis Yi of Zeng in 433 B.C. The Bian Zhong consist of sixty-four bells which are hung in three levels and are divided into eight groups.
This musical instrument was used to acoustically reconstruct the ancient musical scale which ultimately develops one hundred and forty-four musical notes that match their cosmology and astronomy observations throughout the year. Finding the notes through a mathematical formula, the archetypal eight ‘Ba Gua’ notes were converted from Hertz to their corresponding octave in light waves to get their Angstrom number. From that calculation, the result was then converted from Angstroms into Nanometers.
With the Nanometer number, a match could be made to the RGB color system (an additive system by light) and the CMYK color system (a subtractive system by pigment) which is the one we utilize in the printing industry. The result is a beautiful undulation of colors, in their proper position on the Fu Xi Ba Gua wheel.
19mm Shungite Disk
This is radiethesically and energetically aligned to the subtle fields on the back of the Creative Force Pendant. It is a Shungite sample. What is Shungite? It is a black, lustrous, non-crystalline mineraloid consisting of more than 98% of carbon and the word term has been used since 1879. It was first described from a deposit near Shunga village in Karelia, Russia. Shungite contains fullerenes. Fullerenes are ‘buckyballs’ named after the the Mid-Century (20th) Architect, Buckminster Fuller, who used the form in his designs of geodetic domes.
“A fullerene is an allotrope of carbon whose molecule consists of carbon atoms connected by single and double bonds so as to form a closed or partially closed mesh, with fused rings of five to seven atoms. It is a hot topic of research for Nano-carbon and magnetics. The first fullerene molecule was prepared in 1985 by Richard Smalley, Robert Curl, James Heath, Sean O’Brien, and Harold Kroto at Rice University. The structure was also identified some five years earlier by Sumio Iijima, from an electron microscope image, where it formed the core of a “bucky onion”. Fullerenes have since been found to occur in nature. More recently, fullerenes have been detected in outer space. According to astronomer Letizia Stanghellini, “It’s possible that buckyballs from outer space provided seeds for life on Earth.” Thanks Wikipedia!
Shungite has been used medically since the early 18th century. Peter the Great of Russia set up Russia’s first spa in Karelia to make use of the water purifying properties of shungite. Through modern testing, anti-bacterial properties have been confirmed as well. Other unique features are its shielding and electromagnetic absorption by geometrical and structural heterogeneities, and diamagnetic properties. However, wearing just a small 19mm disk is not going to affect a significant modern and measurable physical change to your system. It is there only as a sample for resonance on your subtle planes of existence and will result with a beneficial putative bioenergetic measurement. (a.k.a. muscle testing, or HRV, or bio-field testing). But because of these founded beneficial properties, the material is successfully being utilized in medicine, ecology, agriculture, water purification systems, metallurgy, chemical and construction industries. Energetically and metaphysically speaking it is being used as an earth-worker, a connection to the cosmic mother, it purifies, transmutes, is a modulator to coherency, it is an access to soul wisdom, a transition worker, and unifies opposites. These attributes were an ideal compliment for our bagua pendant design.
