38

“38为朋.” 3 and 8 are supposedly friends – that is what He Tu says. If we view it from Trigrams and 5-element perspective, 3 is Zhen and 8 is Gen trigram. 3 is Wood and 8 is Earth. Wood counters Earth. Hence, Zhen counters Gen. So, Eldest son counters Youngest son. The logic is purely based on trigrams interpretation. Zhen and Gen can also be seen as Zhen over Gen which gives us the Hexagram image of Thunder over Mountain. The gua...

The Old Man and the Dark Qi

This is a case extracted from the I Ching classic to demonstrate how prediction was done using the Plum Blossom divination method. Let me now share with you. On a Ji Chou day, Mao hour, the Master was strolling on the street when he suddenly saw an old man coming from the Southeast direction. The master saw that the old man had a tinge of dark qi on his face and he asked him if something happened to him. The old man replied that he was fine and there was...

Tell me Vedic, What’s my Lucky Car?

Assuming Donald Trump calls me up and say, “Can you tell me which car shall I drive from now on to make me lucky? And what will be the lucky colour for the car? ” Since Mr Trump is a super wealthy man who can easily afford any car he wants, I will recommend him a bright red Lamborghini. Not because red is being regarded by the Chinese as an auspicious colour but in Mr Trump’s Vedic Astrology natal chart, it...

Will I buy a Lemon, Dear i-Ching?

  You are thinking of buying a used continental car made in Germany and you combed through the Singapore famous car website that advertises dozens of them. “Accident-free!” “Pristine condition.” “ Low mileage. ” “Driven by Doctor.” How much can you trust some of the car dealers or the description that they have put up? No one will admit that the alternator is highly worn out, gear-box is slightly faulty and you have to top up the engine oil almost every week due...

Comparison between Xuan Kong Liu Fa and Flying Stars

I often get this question from students. As a teacher that practises and teaches both subjects, I hope to offer some insights on them. To begin with, both are independent systems but come under the same Xuan Kong umbrella. You can learn Liu Fa without knowing Flying Stars and vice versa. There is no direct connection but yet they have common technical terms. Hence, this created certain anxiety among practitioners that Flying Stars is a pre-requisite...

Qi Men Dun Jia – The Panacea for Bad Luck

  Imagine you have been jobless for months and one day you received a call from the HR department of an MNC to go for an interview at the timing showed here. The HR Executive told you the CEO has got only this time slot to meet you. The little Feng Shui and Bazi knowledge that you have told you that this timing is very inauspicious because not only it is a Po Ri (month clashes into the day earthly branch) it...

What’s in Your BaZi to be Successful? (My Tribute to Mr J.S)

Based on his sturdy physique, his charming good look and that inner confidence that quietly exudes from his boyish demeanour, I would very much like to think that he fits aptly into the persona of Leo Ascendant. Not forgetting that he stands tall at about 1.83 metres and his presence has never been easily missed wherever he goes. He is determined to win and competitive by nature, said his friends. And most of the time I see that luck is with him. This is due to the blessing of very...

The Boss that Slave-drives

Sally (not the real name) came to see me for Bazi consult recently. She holds a senior position in a MNC and is feeling rather troubled because of her new boss. Her new boss seems to pick on her even though she is always known to be capable and conscientious in her work. “Flatter him tactfully.” This is what I suggested to Sally after she showed me a photo of her new boss. “Why? This is not my style.” She...

為何學習符咒? (What’s the Benefit of Learning Talisman and Chant)

  符咒乃道法裡頭一個不可或缺的元素。上至神明降乩,法師開壇等都會有使用符令的時候。符令就如同與上天溝通的文件,一份正式的文件要生效,必有其步驟,就像在公司或政府單位,一份文件要生效,要跑流程,最後要主管人員蓋章或簽名才能使文件生效一樣。 當然每個流派在開符/勅符方面或許有不同的步驟或方式,其實就像公司或政府裡頭不同的單位,也會有不同的文件處理流程及方式一樣,到最後其實只要文件能生效就好,至於其中的演繹方式各有巧妙不同,沒有什麼高低強弱之分,也沒有說哪個流派一定比較好。 學習符咒的出發點每個人不同,如果你對道法有興趣,但又暫時無法用太多的精神與時間來練習繁複的科儀,或甚至入道教門下,那或許可以先從符咒這裡先瞭解,若有興趣再往更深入的道教科儀循序漸進也不失為一種方式。 如果你是基於對道教的神秘面感興趣,又多數是從口耳相傳或媒體上面獲得不夠全面的資訊,那來學習這門課程,主要是瞭解一些正向的觀念,明瞭符咒的基本元素,可讓自己不被錯誤觀念所影響,而誤信或誤用符咒,浪費金錢不要緊,還可能惹禍上身。此外,學習一些基本的符咒,若運用得宜,護身護家也可不求人。 如果你有學習命理五術,是否有碰過無「法」可解的問題呢?這「法」就需從道法上去配合,「術」與「法」是相輔相成的,一個是找出問題,一個是解決問題,但往往懂「術」者不習「法」,習「法」者不懂「術」。所以找出問題解決不了,或者是拼命想解決問題卻找不出問題的點在哪裡。「符咒」也是道法的一部份,有時候針對問題使用相對的符咒,在天時地利的配合下,也能得到意想不到的轉化。另外,也如前所述,可先從符咒瞭解起,若真有興趣接觸完整的道教科儀再循序漸進,如此「法」與「術」並行,更可助人無數。 About our Taoist Teacher from Taiwan 林家驊老師 [自幼跟隨父親 林志縈 大師 學習紫微斗數、子平八字、占星、奇門遁甲、姓名學、風水堪輿之術。有感術數需配合法門,方能幫助更多客戶解決問題。故拜入中國道教淨明宗閭山派玄易門下,法名林易禪。在2007年經六十四代張天師:張源先大法師保舉奏職入萬法宗壇為法師。迄今已將近10個年頭,現為茲心閣開運會館駐館老師。] 符咒課程大綱 [Course Outline] 26 & 27 Nov 2016 in Singapore: 簡述道教源起 介紹符籙派 書寫符籙前的準備品項 書寫符籙的禁忌與戒律 符籙的組成要件介紹 符籙的基本要件之變化 書寫符籙前的準備動作 書寫符籙時的基本咒語 書寫符籙完成後的注意事項 勅符的秘訣與動作 施符之用法與時刻 基本符籙的介紹 符籙用途:淨化/護身/考試/化煞/開運…等等。 Email us at academy@destinyasia.com.sg for more info on course fee and registration.  ...

Let’s Face it, We all Judge – An Insights on Face Reading Systems

Have you ever noticed that the evil witches in cartoon are often drawn with crooked nose bridge?

Nevertheless, statistically it can be proven. [caption id="attachment_1940" align="alignnone" width="300"] A Chef[/caption] In the study of Chinese face reading, there is a...

I am Jay Chou but am I Strong or am I Weak?

  Given this Bazi, how would you first interpret the strength of the Daymaster? One might come up with a few possible answers: 1. Yi wood born in the season of winter where water qi is strong. So, it is strong Daymaster since it is born in season. (Some schools directly use the season of birth as sole determinant of strength.) 2. Yi wood born in earth season with the presence of only 1 yin wood next...

Qi Sha is not always Sha Qi (Don’t Give 7-Killing a Bad Name)

I would expect the replies from her to be all “no”.   Jaz (not her real name) has come to see me with a heavy heart. She met a master earlier last year who told her that she would be seriously...

Blink – that Guided Intuition

Well, the star in the palace representing the house was not positive. In addition, there was a punishment. Blink. When come to house selection, I am always more kiasi (Singapore lingo) or cautious.

Qi Men Dun Jia and the Dark Force Within

Most of us are naturally inclined to think that the subjects of Feng Shui and Qi Men Dun Jia are used to help people to overcome challenges in life. Yes, in fact during ancient time, Feng Shui was regarded as a powerful tool to rescue people from poverty (救贫术). Likewise, Qi Men Dun Jia has also been used to assist the emperor to foretell the country luck and as a defence solution against any outside threats. But, has it ever crossed your mind that while Qi Men has widely been...

Various Qi Men Dun Jia Chart Systems

A question I always get from students or feng shui enthusiasts is, "What are the differences among Yearly, Monthly, Daily and Hourly Qi Men Dun Jia Chart systems?" It seems that not many people who have learned or practised Qi Men Dun Jia are able to find an answer, let alone coming out with a more detailed explanation.

2016 is a Blind Year? No, it is Blind Faith.

  “2016 is a Blind Year. It is inauspicious to get married and if you do so, you will become a widow.” What a sweeping statement. And the most astonishing thing is that those words would come from veteran practitioners who claim to be wedding date selection expert for more than decades. In Chinese, it was purported that certain years have no Li Chun. So, in the past, people termed them as “Widow Year” 寡妇年, “Blind Year”盲年 and “Year...

Vedic Astrology – The Universe Reveals All

You got smitten by this suave colleague of yours. Despite his good look that has made you gone head over heels, he has been caring towards you in office. You wonder if he really does carry a torch for you or the feeling is just unilateral. You can’t possibly ask another colleague to ask him about his intent towards you as words will spread and you know that there is no well-kept secret in the office. But you are craving for an answer and as days go by, you get...

Digging your Own Grave to Prosperity – By Jo Ching

To dig one’s own grave is an English idiom that implies that one is to do something that will cause hurt to him- or herself in the future usually due to a foolish act. Not really the case if today we were to apply this in feng shui context. If you are able to find a good fengshui spot, dig the earth, bury your personal things, erect a tombstone with your name inscribed on it, you will get rid of existing bad luck and re-born to enjoy prosperity and longevity....

Avoid Zero-Sum Game Concept in your Chinese Name

  It is not uncommon to hear friends or clients say that because their Bazi lacks fire, they have to add this missing element through their Chinese Names. So, they end up having names like 林 X 燊. They also ended up having a bad career and lousy finances. One of the most frequent complaints is "money always come and go". Rooster and Monkey animal signs, which belong to the metal element, are usually among those who are saddled with such issues. Then, a lady was given alot of water...

Useful God not Protected

In my opinion, the most advance stage that bazi study can go is to predict which month and even down to which day certain event can happen. And I will be more interested to know things that are more impactful to the Daymaster such as health, emotional trauma, losing job, accident and making good money. To me, these are more “life and death” matters as compared to “when I will meet my next boyfriend”. Nevertheless, I believe that to...

Loving and capable husband; and wife happily married B. Responsible and loving husband but not as capable as what the...

Early and Night Rat hours Theory

The rat has 4 and 5 claws for front and hind legs respectively While there have been many controversies over the use of night and early rat hour in the plotting of bazi, I personally subscribe to the notion of dividing the rat hour into 2 segments.

Your Bazi and Number of (Male) Children

This table is plotted in accordance to a poem as follows: 長生四子中旬半,沐浴一雙保吉祥。 冠帶臨官三子位,旺中五子自成行。 衰中二子病中一,死中至老沒兒郎。 除非養取他人子,入墓之時命天亡。 受氣為絕一個子,胎中頭產有姑娘。 養中三子只留一,男女宮中子細詳。 How to...

Ancient Chinese Mathematics – To infinity and Beyond

It involves formula, equations, logics and a structured framework to help us calculate and derive an answer. In my own words, it works within what...

The Study of Heavenly Stems – Qi Men Dun Jia

Oh, and one more, that is, Geng metal – the very much hated enemy of Jia. Qi Men Dun Jia was orginally used as a war strategy and the Heavenly Stems were in a way arrange to develop formations...

Catch the Useful God 捉用神

Students like to ask me what is “catching useful god”. This term is a direct loose translation from the chinese words 捉用神.
