Since the last article posted on this topic was in 2015, perhaps after a long while to revisit and update what has happened ever since, that I have observed. Let me list them and put up some commentary just to update my small group of students & readers.
Still Attacking Flying Star System
Since 20 years plus and still counting, there have been endless “attacks” or provocation that flying star system is inferior and too simple to be taken seriously especially from the San He stream because they believe that Feng Shui is beyond Flying Star based on some failed or sub par result.
Of course there are many fake Flying Star Feng Shui knowledge out there. Some of you may have read my cases on failed Flying Star cases done by others. In the coming future, I will also share a real case in our Youtube channel.
Behind this action there are motives just like the Chinese saying, There can be no waves without wind. Feng Shui schools started this action is to ultimately upsell to other student’s with this FOMO disease. If you look at their course offered, surely they offer a wide variety and San He is surely one of them.
When you put Feng Shui into a purely business perspective and trying to understand the moves, perhaps I will offer a few perspectives and link it to business strategy. Hopefully, I am able to help you open up your third eye!
There are many people who always fear of missing out because they believe that there is more to offer in Feng Shui because they have been sold the idea that Li Ka Shing uses Feng Shui, you get what I mean?. Thus along this line, they have to impress FOMO with dressings, flouting wealth, posh shops etc to reinforce that with their Feng Shui, one will literally move towards you towards the Li Ka Shing dynasty dream.
FOMO being FOMO, will likely fall into the trap. Some of you reading this may relate well since you are still pretty broke after all the power courses. Nothing anywhere near to being Li Ka Shing in the next 10 years. If you are pretty much where you were before, consider yourself very lucky. Many got worse off after applying these type of Feng Shui. If you know stories like this and would like to share, I welcome your stories here. Someday in the future, I can share a very interesting case of a FOMO. Also watch out my Youtube channel for an upcoming case.Continue reading “Is Flying Star Feng Shui Dying – Part 2”
Often times students of Feng Shui kept asking the same question over and over despite learning from few schools….Why is it so? Does it not gain Clarity after learning from several schools?
If you ask me, I will tell you its the opposite effect. Confusion is what you will get if and especially you have learned it from a good Feng Shui school with a correct Lineage.
Forms or Formula First? It’s like asking Did the Chicken or Egg came first…
What is Form Feng Shui?
Form basically means anything from real land features such as rivers, lakes to mountains and hills. Modern definition of form also includes building shapes, images of anything they can think off. Some examples are shapes of clouds, shapes of building, images of items hanging on the wall or images of a painting.Continue reading “Forms And Formula”
Here is a Sheng Ji (Live Grave) client’s experience. I was out of Sheng Ji plots but managed to secure a plot for this client of mine.
After a date was selected, it was set for September 2020 庚子 for the planting. It was lucky since this period Malaysia allowed state cross border travel. Perhaps it was blessed by Heaven.
All this did not happened for no reason. After checking the client’s Bazi, 2021 or specifically Xin Chou 辛丑 year is not a favorable year coupled by his years of weak health. After about 8 months, he has spoken to me about the effects from the Sheng Ji.
I encouraged him to write his own experience for sharing so that people has a realistic idea of what is really Sheng Ji effects. Is Sheng Ji so magical like what some master’s claim it to be? So let’s hear it out from the horse mouth.
Sheng Ji 生基 ( or Prosperity Live Burial) is a Feng Shui technique that derived from Yin Feng Shui. The idea behind this branch of Feng Shui is to apply the Yin dwelling Feng Shui principles to a living person. Similarly to Yin Feng Shui, a proper “burial” ground will be selected by the Feng Shui master and then a false tomb is created for the living person enabling him to benefit from the energy of the selected plot of burial ground.Continue reading “Sheng Ji – A Real Life Case”
Feng Shui Date Selection…
Burial Date Selection
2020 was the year of Covid-19 and also it was the year Macau tycoon Stanley Ho passed away at a ripe age of 98 years old on 26th May 2020. He was not immediately buried after the wake ceremony but he had his coffin parked in a funeral parlour waiting for a suitable date the be buried.
In recent years because of strong marketing efforts, a new age trend has emerged when it comes to date selection. People select date for almost everything in or to “Maximise” auspiciousness. They do it for selecting the date to register the business, they selected date to hang the sign board, they select date to meet customer and now they even added in the direction to leave the house. So virtually anything your can think of will likely go through some form of date selection may it be from Tong Shu, Qi Men Dun Jia, Dong Gong etc…
This is the new age practice. I thought that as man becomes more educated or civilized, we should be more rational but I was wrong, instead people become more superstitious and are now even avoiding eclipse. As far as I know the masters that promoted this concept themselves are having a hard time too. I was not aware of this and went out for a walk and it was a breezy day. It was so invigorating.
It was until I saw those messages people filling up my phone messages about the eclipse that I then realized I have violated the so called bad luck thing to go out during that hour and being exposed to eclipse. Hahaha….thank the almighty I did not suffer from eclipse nor the Mercury retrograde.
Yes Mercury retrograde too has become a hot topic in the recent years but it has nothing to do with Chinese metaphysics.

In the world of metaphysics, there are so many truths and mostly myths out there brought on by misguided practitioners. Some are lucky to realise after many years that some of the things were wrong but the damaged has been done. Thus you will notice why some masters changes their theory along their years. It is no surprise the will call this RESEARCH. Why re-search ( to search again) if you already had the original knowledge from your master? Did you master not got his knowledge from his masters and grandmasters? Did your master learn from books? Did your master learned from many different masters and got confused and now trying to make sense of what he had learned?
So there you go, if you are a wise person, you will understand what I am trying to say here and maybe this will cut short your sufferings in subjects of Chinese Metaphysics.
As a practitioner and teacher, through years of observation of the industry I have come to this conclusion, the 3 MOST DIFFICULT things for a student, as a master and as a lineage holder.
Finding A Master
The first most difficult thing is to find a capable master. In today world of heavy and sophisticated marketing, it is not easy to distinguish between real and fake or between the capable over the charismatic speaker.Continue reading “3 Most Difficult”
Here is another real application of finding missing item using Plum Blossom Divination. Many ways of finding missing items using divination. Some uses Qi Men Dun Jia method. This method is cumbersome because you need a software or calendar to generate the Qi Men chart.
However using Plum Blossom method you dont need such expensive system. Here let me illustrate how my student used this method to find her misplaced ear rings.
It all began in September of 2020 when I met my friends usual monthly gathering for lunch. This time my friend brought along a jewelry designer so anyone who wants to make a new or perhaps alter or even repair their jewelry are welcome to bring their articles for inspection. I wanted to alter the earing lifts so I brought it to the luncheon but alas, it was not possible according to the jeweler.
So I took it home and kept it. In January of 2021 I wanted to try out the earrings but I was not able to find it anywhere in the house nor the usual place where I used to keep them. After a few days of searching I was really going no where so I decided to get help from Plum Blossom Divination.
Setting the Divination CastContinue reading “Where Are My Ear Rings?”
When Master Alan announced he will be conducting his first ever course on Plum Blossom Divination, I was pretty excited and signed up immediately. As a former novice learner of another divination system, I found the other system a bit overwhelming. Imagine this, after casting the divination, I have to follow the direction that will be beneficial when I travel to my meeting destination or attempting to find an “advantage” sitting position and or observing special phenomenon… it gets a bit overbearing especially I am not adept at directions !!!
Mid way through the course, I was presented with a professional dilemma and after much pondering decided to use what I have learned thus far to cast the hexagrams and attempting to seek guidance. Luckily, Master Alan’s teaching is very straight to the point devoid of flowery and motivational languages. Master Alan was amused by my attempt but encouraged it on the basis that this will be a case study in the future.
A short synopsis…
We were presented with an opportunity to participate in a strategic tender that shall we win, can potentially provide much publicity and lucrative business for longer term. However, we were faced with competitions that hold current business relationship advantage. From the onset, we are already on the back foot before we started.
In the initial Hexagram, the asker (me) was presented with a non favourable nor disadvantaged situation. It also indicates hesitation on my part to be involved in the tender process. I discussed this with senior management personnel, and we agreed that this will be one tough tender but the decision rest on me to participate or not. After casting and reviewing the hexagram, I decided to go ahead and the reason as to be continued below ….
In the mutual Gua, the asker (me) is in a favourable position and true enough the end user has indicated their willingness to give us an opportunity to be the main supplier of the project. Before this even take place, it is obvious that we have to submit our tender submission. At the time when the hexagram was casted, I was slightly puzzled on how we can be in a favourable position?
Master Alan words of wisdom (or his constant reminder) comes to mind… “ Heaven will give you a hint of the way, but you will have to make the journey yourself”
After much strategic competitive analysis during the tender process ( or in business lingo- find the gap), it daunted on me that there is an area we hold an advantage against the competitions but one we had overlooked. With that in mind, I take a full plunge into the tender submission with special focus on the “key benefit area”. I advised my direct management that we will participate in the tender and we will clinch the deal in January but we will have to go through various hurdles before we get the final sign off. Some found my comment a bit strange but ….
In the final Hexagram, the asker will be in a favourable position but just marginally as the Hexagram indicates potential challenges.
In January 2021, we were advised by the customer that we are the successful tenderer. I was requested to come to their office at the earliest convenience. True to the divination, we were presented with a number of wish list requirements for us to meet at the meeting. We received an initial order ( the contract was split into 2 with the second one the deal clincher) after the requirements were met to customer’s specification. When we thought that the main course deal was clinched after we met the requirements, we ran into yet another final hurdle. Suffice to say, we have to go through some legal and tedious process to satisfy both parties interest. After much fun dealing with the paperwork and processes, we received the official contract.
And that’s how I clinched the deal using Plum Blossom Divination. If I didn’t cast the divination on that faithful day in December 2020 and reviewed the results, we as in a company, would probably not have even participated in the tender.
Disclaimer: Those who have followed me over the years knows that I am not a fan for general predictions. Thus it was no different for 2020. Some masters got it right while majority was wrong about 2020. The one master who got it almost correct took it from the old text of Earth Mother Classics and expanded it.
This year I have received many invitation including from Exxx Mxxxxxx newspaper to do an on camera interview since they wanted to know about Xin Chou 辛丑 the Metal Ox year (2021) and how it impact Malaysia in particular to Foreign Investment, Economy and Covid 19. There are also many students and group members who are eager to hear some good news from me.
Those who got it wrong is a testament on my teaching to some of my student on this subject of “How To Predict Like A Pro?”. Those of you will know what I have told you in private is correct. Its a little like magic show, its not really magic but some logical, eye deceiving trick applied. Of course the less sophisticated version goes like this.
The famous master will have his yearly talk on date X, then all his students will organise their talk on a later than date X so they will share out to their own customers and audience what their teacher have shared with some minor modification to the presentation. This is the level of Chinese metaphysics today. They were all given a fish but never taught to fish.
Clearly, those who chases after general annual prediction is more of a commercial guy. A true master knows these are not the real application of Chinese Metaphysics. If the commercial guy is in good luck, sure he will get a few corrects. The reason is Chinese Metaphysics is always dependent on the Taiji. If you truly understand what is a Taiji then you will get what I mean.
Nonetheless, it was indeed entertaining to read what these masters have to say. Maybe I will pen down a few over the years of observation.
One master likes to shift the prediction point as he likes. One year he uses the center of the world map which is somewhere in the Middle East and the next year he uses Beijing to justify his predictions.Continue reading “2021 Astrological Review”
Students asking me for more real stories on Plum Blossom Divination so I spoken to a few students and SJ volunteered to share this case she did for her self after learning this beautiful art of Plum Blossom.
Yi Jing Study
plum blossom divination is derived from the knowledge of Yi Jing, the earliest knowledge of Chinese metaphysics that already dated back as long as 6000 years ago according to some historical text.
Plum blossom is an easy art to cast and to help us by giving us a clue onto the situation we have concerns and seek guidance. In this case, it was done for learning purposes by the student.
This student has previous knowledge from other schools and she knows that every schools of Yi Jing is also different in their approach and methodology. Let’s read on her story :
