FengShui is a term strictly referred to as the art of harnessing ShengQi. Looking at a natal chart and predict where is ShengQi and ShaQi and to decide where to sit and face is not FengShui. This is Divination, the art of divinity based on numerology, imagery and Qi. Its method is far reaching ranging from QiMen SanShi to YiGua and BaZi to the very extend of XuanKong DaGua. Yet, since time immemorial, it is considered as part and parcel of FengShui, formerly called ZhaiBu, the Divination of a House.
Modern practitioner may use both arts in synchronicity. As example, they may do a divination before even attempting to visit the site for an audit. This is by mean of opening up a QiMen or a ZiBai Natal Chart and read the ingredient thereof. From the chart they are able to discern where is the incoming Qi, outgoing Qi, ShaQi and where is the best location to locate the main door, thus establishing siting and facing. This is called remote sensing. The customer would be thrilled by the practitioner's ability of clairvoyance and often mistaken as a living angel. However, this is Not FengShui!
Upon reaching the site, a FengShui practitioner will evaluate the capacity of a site by taking into consideration the macro incoming and outgoing Qi, to establish its Qi maps. The same is applied to the immediate external and follow through towards the compound of the property, so that every layers are consistent to a structure. This is the art of harnessing Qi. The interior of the property is arranged to conform to such structure as to allow Qi to flow unobstructed. The art of harnessing is through the Xue, not one but multiples. SanHe method is employ to where Qi begins. SanYuan method is employ to where Qi ends. They are both complementary and these are genuine FengShui and they are not guess work such as divination.
What if the site conditions contradicted the divination outcome? Which take precedent? This often happen. FengShui method is grounded on specific methodology almost scientific in nature. Divination is by virtue of synchronicity and probability almost guess work. Which do you think is likely to bring result?
Point in discussion...
There is case point worth discussing and it is called XianTian SanYuan QiMen DunJia XuanKong DaGua (XTSYQMDJXKDG) what a mouthful words for a simple term of Early Heaven Three Cycle Mysterious Gate Hiding the Jia Mysterious Void Huge Hexagram. Gosh... Gasping for air pronouncing it.
This method is made popular by the late grandmaster Zheng ZiNan hailed from Taiwan who had lived a ripe age of 100 and had built an empire of wealth for his family. His life is the epitome of a true genuine master who prosper himself before others. When he came to Taiwan, he use the term SanYuan DiLi or SanYuan Earth Study to differentiate himself among the peers. He advocated his technique called XieZiFa and the results driven application has impacted the industry of his time. He is among the pioneer to give warranty for his work, unmatched by others. By self-confession, he never disclose his method to anyone outside his family circle. Yet, as we see today, there are so many "clones".
Some of these clones, learnt the similar art from HongKong, similar is the operative word. The late grandmaster ChenBeiSheng was the torch bearer of XuanKong DaGua he claimed as MiaoPai. He advocated the key in applying XKDG is in QMDJ. Therefore, XTSYQMDJXKDG is XieZiFa. Unfortunately, we don't subscribed to this statement.
There are two arms to this method. One is QMDJ and the other XKDG. QMDJ is the art of the Divination and XKDG is the art of Connecting Qi. So, together it is a complete technique.
Banking on the expansive investment of learning this art, many clones started teaching QMDJ in 4 instalments, namely QMDJ-Divination, QMDJ-Life Reading, QMDJ-FengShui and QMDJ-Strategy. Some clones go as far as teaching QMDJ-witchcraft, QMDJ-art of war, QMDJ-hoccuspoccus and so forth. They denied the fact that fundamentally, they are the same - the art of divination.
How to connect the dots?
It begins with the understanding of Heaven Earth and Man. Each has its own natal chart. QMDJ-Life Reading will tell you that QMDJ can be used to read your Life like BaZi. It is even better than ZiPing BaZi, the clones called it BaZi+. Based on your solar date and time of birth, a QMDJ chart is constructed. It is supposed to be uniquely You. The natal chart is fixed, but the palaces are dynamic and it reflects your Destiny. When you add another layer of XKDG, you will get the Hexagram, that is specially and uniquely Your Life Hexagram. This natal chart will form the very basis of You and You must never deviate away from the prescription of this chart, otherwise it is bad omen.
After knowing yourself, you must know what is around you. This is where QMDJ-Divination becomes handy. This aspect aligns traditionally as the Hour School QMDJ, where the chart is derived from the Hour. Interpreting the charts differ among schools but its fundamentals are similar – interplay between host and guest to determine the useful god. Failure in doing so will result in a chaotic reading. When you add another layer of XKDG, you will get the simultaneous application of Purple White Hexagram that is the ultimate usage of the Purple White Scroll or ZiBaiJue. The simultaneous application of QMDJ-Divination with Annual and Replacement stars enable forecasting for any event, property, person and others including the ever familiar Eight Mansions techniques.
Knowing what is around you is insignificant if you do not know how to unlock the secret of QMDJ and XKDG. This is where QMDJ-FengShui becomes handy. Besides the ability to perform “desk-top” FengShui or “remote-sensing” audit to a particular site or property, QMDJ-FengShui coupled with XKDG enable you to connect Qi wherever you please. Your ability in FengShui is no longer confined to the physical existence of Qi but to connect to the mystical abode of Qi so provided in QMDJ. Your ability in Qi connection will be transcended beyond merely receiving good incoming and expelling bad outgoing Qi to tapping to your wealthy neighborhood while living in a not so prosperous neighborhood. Turning misfortune into fortune is what probably coined as XieZiFa within a short time span. It is an art of wizardry, hardly anything one has known before.
Unlocking the Secret of QMDJ XKDG is when you plan and execute your plan according to the will of Heaven including date selections that are not confined to only FengShui date selection but everything. The key is Plan and Execute! This is QMDJ-Strategy. When it is applied to War it is the Art of War. When it is applied to getting rich it is the Art of Wealth. It encompasses all the duration of short, medium and long term plans juggling among the Hour, Day and Year School QiMen. This is divination applied to execution par excellent as the saying goes, if you failed to Plan then plan to Fail and you will NEVER FAIL! In our school it goes hand in hand with QiMen LiuRen simultaneous applications.
Not enough? Call in the ‘X-Men’ from another dimensions. This is traditionally termed FaQiMen. It is the art of both the ‘dark’ and the ‘white’ sides. In StarWars terminology, it is the use of the ‘Force’ between the Jedi Masters and the Sith Lords. Goes very well with any Daoist Lineages be it LiuRen ShenGong, MaoShan ShenGong, ZhenYi ShenGong, LvShan ShenGong and all that you can possibly find and it comes in very handy in Ghost Busting, gambling and ‘robbery’. Incantations and Talismans are the tools to summons the ‘X-Men’ to your assistance via QiMen Five Charms Five Ghosts techniques. In our school it goes hand in hand with QiMen LiuRen simultaneous applications.
