八字风水 - BAZI FENGSHUI
SMOKE IN THE HEYSTACK
There were this hype in the former USSR regarding BaZi FengShui where from your BaZi, you are able to retrieve a cure for your FengShui. A current event that has broken up between one FengShui master of Kiasuland with his students from the land of the iron curtains, resulted of him being labeled as another con master, is worth to contemplate. Personality aside, what interest most is the technique coined BaZi FengShui. By the same token, it also aptly applied to ZiWei FengShui, ZiPing FengShui or others of the same similar fashion.
The problem with this kind of solution is that if purely on BaZi alone, it is based on a set of fundamentals or rules in fate reading - MingLi Xue 命理学. However, one cannot use the same set of fundamentals or rules to be applied to FengShui - DiLi Xue 地理学. One talks about fate and destiny while the other is solely on riding earth Qi. It is very often for one to be confused with the trinity of Heaven Man Earth, which is to say, FengShui is earth, BaZi is Man and Jire (date selection) is Heaven. Collectively, these are called SanChai, which in truth it is so remote. Each system of Chinese metaphysics component has its own set of SanChai.
BaZi itself is a middle heaven. However, not many practitioners know how to use this set of middle heaven effectively across the other system of Chinese Metaphysics. For the purpose of this article, lets us just narrow down the scope as to how to apply the BaZi FengShui, the Kiasuland Conmaster's way. Please note this is only a discussion on techniques and has nothing whatsoever with anyone dead or alive.... It is strictly fictional and anything else is truly coincidental...
THE BAZI CHART - IMAGERY READING
There are many ways to decipher a BaZi chart. For the purpose of this exercise, lets just narrow down to the imagery method, known to be a pet technique to this subject of discussion. For example, this person born in Yr:Mt:Da:Hr, GuiSi:JiaZi:JiSi:BingYin.
This person is a Ji earth person sitting on Si fire. Ji earth are wet fertile earth able to grow others. However it is sitting on Si with Bing fire as its major Qi. Bing fire is taking the image of the Sun, warming but not scorching the wet earth. So it is rather good! Born in early winter, Zi. Gui water is the strong. The classics say, in winter the snow will insult the Sun. It means to say, Bing fire is not so strong after all. Here is where the problem is, the prevailing water Qi is not sentimental to Ji earth. Too much water will make Ji muddy and of no good use.
Ji useful gods are Bing, Jia and Gui, based on the classic of DiTian Sui or Distillation of Heaven Marrow Classics. Bear in mind this is only a static prescription that may not entirely be true between different individuals. These three noble elements are found in the stems in this given example. Therefore, they are usable. Gui is there to moist the Ji with Bing giving Ji the warmth it requires to have the ability to grow Jia. All these elements are rooted and deemed strong in the BaZi chart.
The greatest misconception here is that as long as you are able to tap into the branches which contained these as its main Qi, you are able to reap its benefits, FengShui wise...
This branch of method in FengShui is based on the idea that the diagnosis is in BaZi and the prescription is in FengShui. So, in the given example, we knew that this Ji person favorite elements are in Gui, Bing and Jia. Zi contains Gui water, Si contains Bing and Yin contains Jia. Collectively, Yin, Si and Zi locations measured from the LuoPan shall best be the location of the Main Door, Master Room and the Kitchen.
In both SanHe and SanYuan LuoPan there is a Ring called the Zodiac Ring comprises of the 12 branches from Zi to Hai. Some writers named this ring as the Jupiter station ring or TaiSui. This very ring is used to measure the locations of the three most important aspects of the Yang Dwelling based on this BaZi FengShui. Different methods will use this ring differently...
Having your house sits on these favorable locations matches your BaZi favorable gods are considered auspicious. Having these locations clashed by the visiting annual afflictions like TaiSui, SuiPo and SanSha portend calamity. Cures either in placebo FengShui may be required to diffuse these annual afflictions. In BaZi FengShui, the same technique applies for example, you need to activate Si to combine away the TaiSui Shen when it arrives at your doorstep. Alternatively, the Big Sister way, you need to place a Snake figurine at the Shen or Monkey sector of your home when the Shen TaiSui arrive in that particular year...
A further refinement to this technique require a throughout analysis of the hidden stems within one's BaZi. It also means to say, from your BaZi chart you will able to remote sensing the entire Qi map of the house. This method is called interpolations and intrapolations, as some masters may called these inter-palace or intra-palace reading.
This method may sound logical on theory but truly lacked the vigor in application. Such method is taking a BaZi theory stock load and barrel to be applied to FengShui, which is not appropriate. Even in most of the modern literature in FengShui water methods such as Goat Blade water Method, Three Punishment Water Method and Three Combinations Water Method are nothing more then modern creation to create what is known as the Water Dragon to con the public.
Imagery Reading technique in BaZi may be fast to seize up a person's BaZi but it is not a sole method in deciphering one's useful element. There is a soul in every BaZi that all methods such as the 10 gods, balancing of the chart, temperature adjustment, NaYin strength and so forth are trying to distill this very soul of BaZi called the useful elements. Once this useful element is obtained, what are you going to do with it?
SanHe and SanYuan techniques are the only true genuine FengShui technique to ride ShengQi. These are the fundamentals as taught by the Earth Diety, Yang YunSong. These methods have their very own drill to ride ShengQi. Applying BaZi theory blindly is definitely not the way. Only through knowing your very own useful elements and if it is able to synchronize with the Xue of the building conforming to the greater external structure, it only means to say you will be easily receiving the auspicious Qi from that structure itself. Other people who stay within the same structure will also enjoy the auspicious Qi, but the speed and intensity may not be that strong...
Sadly, after all the hype in teaching such false methods for the price of USD 3000, all that has been feedback were brickbats that such efforts are to con others, especially to westerners... The true problem is not in the technique but truly the people teaching such technique... caveat empthor...
