Where Are My Ear Rings?

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.


The Scenario

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.

HOW I CLINCHED THE DEAL USING PLUM BLOSSOM DIVINATION

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.

INITIAL GUA

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 ….

MUTUAL GUA

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 ….

FINAL GUA

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.

Plum Blossom Divination – Birthday Gift

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 :

Plum Blossom Divination Case

Divination is one of the 5 key aspects of Chinese Metaphysics study. There are various methods to do a divination but the easiest and accurate method is the Plum Blossom Divination or 梅花易数. The other method that is now popularly marketed is the Qi Men Dun Jia method which is harder to learn and very dependent on the calendar availability something the Plum Blossom method do not require.

Divination is a method to guide us and give us a hint about a future outcome. Sometimes all we need is a hint so we are better prepared for the eventualities. Let me share with you a REAL case my student did after learning the art of Plum Blossom Divination.


As a former novice learner of QMDJ, I decided to invest in Plum Blossom Divination (PBD) course offered by Master Alan Chong recently. Strictly personal opinion only, I find that sometimes in life all we want to know is a YES or NO answer. The many formulas and formations of QMDJ can easily lead us down a wrong path if we interpret the formation inaccurately. One of the important facts that I have been convinced is this, if we have 3 person asking the same question at the same time, generally the answer is the same at the specific period of time due to QMDJ formation at that particular point in time. Whereas in Plum Blossom Divination, you are likely to get 3 different answers and formations.

Back to the divination, I was bringing the kids to pet adoption centre on the 31st December. While browsing through the web and screening the available pet for adoption, I have “two minds” about the trip tomorrow. It was there and then spontaneously I decided to do a PBD casting. Taken a glance at an “ object” ie my table clock I decided to use the number image there to do my casting and form my hexagram.

Flying Star Feng Shui Case Analysis

Flying Star is undoubtedly famous for it’s ability to predict thus some practitioners call it a divination tool. However, this is a highly misconceived notion. If the knowledge of Flying Star is deep and authentic, it can also be used to set the Feng Shui formation for any property. However if the knowledge is superficial and self studied, perhaps this is how misconceived idea creeps in. Feng Shui is a knowledge you need a practicing master to guide.

There are two cases where fire accidents happen in the city that I live, Kuala Lumpur. One of it happened on one of the busiest malls in Kuala Lumpur, Mid Valley Megamall. It is located at the area where two famous feng shui masters operate their high end business from. The one main reason they have chosen this location is because of the purported Jade Belt River Formation which is supposed to be auspicious but why the Fire accidents happened and how it happened?

The Explosive Morning

In the morning of 5th April 2016, an explosion 💥 occurred at the Chili’s restaurant at 9:45am. It was caused by a gas leak when the mall operators were doing a maintenance and bypass job and while testing, it happened. Luckily no casualties were involved only minor injuries happened. It could have been the good Feng Shui of Mid Valley that have avoided serious casualties.

The Red Drop pin is where Chilies Restaurant is located, facing The Garden Mall. There are many food outlets that uses LPG supply but most of them differs in the door location as well as years operating business there.

Red Drop Pin is where the McDonald is
Red Drop Pin is where the McDonald is. Along this row of shop McDonald is the only shop in this row that uses LPG.

To the authorities and lay people, this is probably due to human negligence or a fault in the standard operating procedures (SOP) etc but to a Feng Shui master, this is something that needs to be investigated.

Qi Men Dun Jia And Strategy

奇门遁甲

Many people ask me if Qimendunjia a strategy and should they learn it. Here are my thoughts and you decide for yourself what do you want in your life.

WARNING: If you are a Qi Men die hard fan or someone who likes to be in denial than to accept the truth, perhaps you may want to skip this post.

Let’s first understand what is Qi Men Dun Jia or in short QMDJ. What is the use of QMDJ in the past? Since most Qimen school relates to Zhu Ge Liang as symbol of Qimen then lets go and understand history again.

The Great Military Strategist – Zhu Ge Liang a.k.a Kong Ming

Zhu Ge Liang was a military strategist during the period of 3 Kingdom (220-280AD). He was living in seclusion waiting for someone how appreciate his knowledge and skill to appear. That person who finally came was Liu Bei the blood brother of Guan Gong. There was a war between 3 parties, Cao Cao (Wei), Liu Bei (Shu) and Sun Quan (Wu) and Liu Bei needed a military strategist thus how this lead him to Kong Ming.

Shu – Liu Bei/Kong Ming, Wu-Sun Quan, Wei-Cao Cao

If you like to read more about the history, Tuttle publishing has a book by Luo Guan Zhong which is easy to read.

Here is an excerpt from a book by Luo Guan Zhong which by the way we don’t know each other thus it is a very independent and unbiased reading.

A New Feng Shui Era

When I was writing my first book back in 2016, I was asked to suggest a book title and it took me a while before I arrived at WINDS OF CHANGE which was then accepted by my co author.

Why this title, you may think.

First of all, we felt that there will be a change in government in Malaysia if the elections were to be held in 2018 although it seems almost impossible back then and the reason was with the good luck cycle of PM Najib that will end in 2018. However, this is the past fact.

Secondly there will be a change in the Feng Shui world from as early as 2019 to about 2029.

Phase one will begin the beginning of the slide in 2017 but the more significant change will be felt more in 2019-2021. There will be a major change in the Feng Shui scene due to this event. However, still there will many new Feng Shui  consultants sprouting out from then till we enter Period of Nine which starts from 2024.

The second phase of change will start in 2024 for about 5-6 years. The reason is due to the wrong knowledge of Feng shui that thrived for the last 20 years. Period of 8 is something many got away with this fault, perhaps due to the times of what I call a phenomena of “coincidental feng shui”. Continue reading “A New Feng Shui Era”

Divination vs Astrology

Many are confused with the difference between Divination and Astrology. This happening is, I believe due to the blurring division or definition between the two arts. Let’s examine it’s initial roots.

In Chinese metaphysics, it is divided into 5 categories and hence sometimes referred to as 5 arts of Chinese metaphysics or in short Chinese Five Arts. They are namely:

  1. Divination 卜
  2. Astrology
  3. Physiognomy 相
  4. Medicine 医
  5. Mountains 山

Thus in the past they belong to different categories of study. However, today, modern practitioners use one art for multiple purposes causing the blurring of their true purposes.

Under Astrology category are Bazi 八字 and Purple star Astrology or Zi Wei Dou Shu while under Divination are arts like Plum blossom, Wen Wang coins, Yi Jing imagery, Qi Men Dun Jia, Da Liu Ren etc.

So what is the difference between them?

Divination

This are is mainly to provide us on the moment answer to our questions we have in mind or to know the weather in the near future to assist our planning. In the old days a victory in war is very dependent on weather. A smart military strategist can use it to find out when a fog is coming to use it to their advantage for example.

Example of Qi Men Dun Jia Chart
You probably hear of Zhu Ge Liang the great military strategist who won the battle of Red cliff by using fog to “borrow a thousand arrows” from Cao Cao and also “borrowing the Eastern wind” where he launched fire boats to crush Cao Cao navy after tricking them to tie their boats together.
