The Empowering BaZi Workshop Ever!

Excuse us for not updating Yifengshui so regularly. We would like to discuss more about 8 Mansions but at the moment, we would like to share with you the moments of our workshop on BaZi applications. It was a unique composition of students where to our surprised, most of them has prior knowledge in BaZi fundamentals. Coupled with our repeat students the workshop kicked off with high gears towards clashes, combination and transformations. The highlights are the manners of which we treat these notions of movements in the BaZi chart, almost unconventional from the usual norm. As reiterated by one student from the republic, by far this is one of the Best BaZi courses she has ever attended. The answer which was long sought after has been answered. We were also humbled by the attendance of students of other schools, which has largely benefited from the no holding back approach of Master Ng. The highlights ended with even more laughter at dinner.

Next, the other main course was day 2, specifically reserved for the 10 Gods. Our repeat students dwell on it with much ease whereas it was an almost guaranteed eye opener for the new students. Never had they seen the 10 Gods can be played with in such flexibilities and in such a manner that the chart could be read in so many ways! Words just cannot describe it all. The real "kung-fu" is how the 10 gods are in actions! You must SEE to believe it!

The closing day was the icing of the cake. Within the confine of the four walls, all secrets were revealed! We respect the guts of the volunteer to allow their BaZi to be dissected in minute details: a testimony that ZiPing BaZi can be as good and detailed as compared to its cousin, ZeWei DouShu. As one student in Penang puts it, he has never felt so "naked" before even the spiritual sides can be easily revealed. Unfortunately, we cannot reveal all the "scandalous" pointers that have been hiding deep within the chart. One word says all - MARVELOUS!

Bonus, BingBazi drop by all the way from Malacca to show us his pet techniques of investigating the spiritual dimensions of the BaZi chart. As time is drawing near to an end passed 8 pm, where most outstation and oversea students need to catch their flights, they had only THREE things to bring back - enormous exposure to REAL BaZi applications besides the good food that Seremban has to offer and endless laughter from our good bouncy Lenny, whom we owed so much for his effort to organize this workshop.

For our students of QuanYuan, we will take your suggestions to improve on our shortcomings and to organize more workshops of these natures especially in FengShui. As organizing workshops are not as simple as it is, as we have to balance logistics with the course contents, we are looking forward to bring you more quality expositions in Chinese Metaphysics by next year. 

To the numerous calls and emails for enquiry that we had received after the workshop either for BaZi and FengShui consultations, we regret to say that our appointment for the moment is quite full especially coming to the end of the year. We thank you for your interest in our services and please speak to Lenny should you need to contact us. His information is HERE.

Last but not least, Master Ng's message to his students is equally important especially on the secret techniques of XieZi. His full message is HERE.

We look forward to see you again in our courses line up for next year!

Problem With Eight Mansions

This method is considered to be the simplest forms of FengShui methodology. So simple that some experts reckoned it to be a flawed method. How could one be possible of dividing people into 2 sectors of East and West house? Made popular by the book called BaZhai MingJing or Eight Mansions Bright Mirror, some claimed to be authored by the monk YiXing while others, to be coming from the grandmaster Yang, it is subject to debate. However, the inevitable question remains, is BaZhai or Eight Mansions a SanHe or a SanYuan method? 

If it is a SanYuan method, why is the element annexed to the stars such as ShengQi takes TangLang (wood) instead of 1-6 (water) in accordance to the HeTu? TangLang star form in SanHe is a wood star. So, it must be a SanHe methodology. Such may not be true?

Yet, it is not SanHe per se. Practitioners of XuanKong DaGua (XKDG) understand that Eight Mansions is the macro view of XKDG. DaGua being the Hexagram of the YiGua (not YiJing), consist mainly of lower trigram being the host and upper trigram being the guest. In this case the host remains constant as the sitting Gua of a house. Therefore a house Gua remains valid in the application. Whereas the guests are the transformed Gua (wandering stars) or flipping trigrams. With both Trigrams it forms a Hexagram. This is DaGua when it is annexed to the Gua Qi and Gua Yun, in a macro view. So it must be SanYuan.

To illustrate such, take a Kun sitting house as an example. We cast a natal chart based on the LoShu and sitting of a house, in this case, Kun house. Based on the flipping method we superimposed the Eight Mansions star into the LoShu. Then we superimposed the Eight Mansion star as DaGua into the LoShu. Do you see the consistency as to why there are only 4 favorable stars and 4 unfavorable stars?

Saying thus, it opens up to myriads issues worth investigating. Is our theory wrong or simply our applications going so wrong? One conclusion, Eight Mansion is not as simple as it appears to be.On another note, do you really knows what make a ShengQi really growing Qi and not just name sake? What is the quality of YanNian and the qualifying factors of TianYi and not just those descriptions found on the books available in the market. It is all in the DaGua itself.

Drop us a note if you want to know more…

Horizontal Paths

Strangely, the 7 luminaries made up 3 distinct paths along the horizon. These paths are relevant to the movement of the sun and the moon as will stop at each stations marked by the static stars. These stations are known as the 28 lodges, further group into 4 categories known as the 4 celestial beasts, each governs the four cardinals respectively.

Needless to say, the 28 lodges also have its personification of its respective deities in the Daoist pantheon governing the auspiciousness of the relevant sector in relation to the visits of TaiYang (sun) and TaiYin (moon). Will such often seen as the basis of date selections?

Your Left Is My Right

No one reference point is the same?

Basic Chinese astrology states the 4 streams as TaiYi, TaiWei, ShaoWei and TianShi, referring to the HeTu with the reference point is ZiWei, the North Dipper. Some term these as the static part of the Milky Way?

Then the 7 luminaries of the 5 planets and our sun and moon made up the dynamic part of the Milky Way. We were blessed with the 4 seasons, night and day. Here, we establish directions as in North South East and West. Thus, the measurement of the lateral arises thanks to the dynamics of the 7 luminaries. When this direction is set out, where is our point of reference? Earth or the pole star?

Clockwise or Anti Clockwise

In HeTu, the Odd number forms a Yang enclosure. While the other Even number forms another Yin enclosure. This enclosure establishes the left or the right turning cycles. 

Why must Yang takes left to right and Yin takes right to left? A matter of coriolis effects? 

Perhaps, in the Northern Hemisphere, the compass is pointing South and an adjustment must be made while in the Southern Hemisphere instead, as the compass ought to have pointed North! All our known SanYuan theory must have been reversed and screwed up for the reference point is always in the context of the Northern Hemisphere... OMG! Is that why the application goes so wrong?

This perhaps is the most confused lots in the Chinese astronomy pertaining to the HeTu principle applied in FengShui resulting in among others, why even XKFX stars fly forward, odd XKFX stars fly backward? Why counts from the left first and not the right? Why XKDG uses the outer plate and not the inner one? 

What may seen to be a displaced disc of enclosures are actually stacking above one another. What does this imply?

In the another words, mountain is construe as Yin or mountain is construe as Yang? Water is construe as Yin or water is construe as Yang? Better, when XieZi changes, Mountain are not construed as Mountain, Water is not construe as Water. Mountain can be taken as Water; Water can be taken as Mountain.

Establishing Enclosures

One example of 1 and 6 is that they belong to the same clan. 1 Yang transforms into 6 Yin, by virtue of the 5. Is this the change in XieZi? Details read HERE.

While we see XuanKong DaGua (XKDG) as the prescription, XuanKong FeiXing (XKFX) as the diagnosis, what does the number 5 actually means? 

In XKFX, we were so afraid of the 5 yellow that the Fighting Afflictions junkies want to muddle with it. 

In XKDG, where is the GuaQi number 5? Is there a combination of 5 and 10 in the XKDG GuaQi and GuaYun? What does a combination of 5 and 10 means in XKDG? Anyone opts to sell and bastardized “IChing XKDG” or call it by other names needs to understand this? Just how does your water and mountain star fly in your XKFX, forward, backward, up, down or topsy-turvy?

Then, 2 and 7 purportedly means 5 known planets (some says 5 elements) + (1 moon and 1 sun) = 7 luminaries. Is that true? 

How about 3 and 8 at the left, taking the postulation that the sun raises at the east and 4 and 9 at the right, the sun sets on the west? On contrary, the 4 pillars of HeTu do not establish directions and where does east and west comes about? A little bit force fitting? 

So to conclude that North is water element, South is fire element and so on so forth is fundamentally RUBBISH!

Establishing Pillars

In a complete HeTu, 1 to 5 is called the numbers of origin (o) whereas 6 to 10 are called the numbers of completions. The difference aspect of things that can be observed is 1+5=6, with the rest follow suit. The origin numbers seem to have been without the +5 whereas the completion numbers are the result of the origin numbers +5. 5 remains in the center (pivot), completion numbers are the results of the origin numbers returning to the center and transformed into something else while returning to its original palace. What could this possibly means? Does It means to say understand where Qi begins and where Qi ends?

Legendary tale foretold that the Polaris star is surrounded by 6 other stars constituting the Ursa Minor constellation. This ladle formation become the vehicle to the Polaris star, ZiWei and liked any constellation in the Daoist pantheon has been canonized as ZiWei TianJun, responsible for the Fate and fortune of the Chinese Emperor. So the completion numbers are seen as being able to ferry the emperor to your side to your benefits. Is that true?

So, a complete set of HeTu will see, 1 and 6 at the bottom, 2 and 7 at the top, 3 and 8 at the left, 5 and 10 at the center and lastly, 4 and 9 at the right, completing a cross liked formations that is called the four pillars of the Milky Way. Is it also set the backdrop for the 4 pillars of BaZi?

Ultimate Tale Of The One

The array of the numbers in the HeTu represents the structure of the galaxy. Starts from the 1, it represents the Dipper. The phrase TaiYi gives birth to water, meaning the ultimate ONE gives birth to water which is the source of life - Evolutions. 

The life giving factors annexed to the significant of the North Dipper has been canonized as the North Dipper Deity (BeiDou TianJun) benevolence in prolonging life, within the Daoist pantheon. It is so pure and distilled that it sinks deep downwards. So the Dipper position within HeTu remains at the bottom. It did not reflect the geographical or astronomical North, contrary to common believes. HeTu is all about top, bottom, left and right.

In any temple of the Nine Emperor Gods, 2 distinctive pagodas are seen with each dedicated to the North and South Dipper Deities respectively. The constructions and locations of these pagodas follow the strict sequence of the HeTu, a tale for another time. The question remains, what has the pagoda got to do with the North and South Dipper Deities?

Saying thus, receiving ShengQi is to tap into this very source of life which is the ONE. It is incomplete in any knowledge if one does not understand the applications of the water method. Saying thus, it is connected with the pagoda of the North Dipper Deity. The question is how?

Tale Of The Heavenly Heart

Every map has a reference point. The HeTu reference point is the Dipper and Earth. The basis is the YinYang of numbers where Odd number is Yang and Even number is Yin. In another word of male and female. The very basic unit of 5 comprises of 2+3 or 4+1. Both these numbers are stand alone YinYang and therefore, its YinYang is balanced, the fundamental principle of KanYu, we must first balance YinYang. 

The so called, balanced 5 becomes the pivoting reference denoting the center of the Earth aligning to the center of the Dipper. Its position is so important that it becomes the Heavenly Heart or TianXing. This became the 2nd fundamental principle of KanYu. Do you know where the Heavenly Heart is? Failure in establishing such will render all application of common techniques fail. So, there is really nothing wrong with the method, only applications. One major misconception, heavenly heart is the center of a property!
