“There are so many types of Chinese Metaphysics solutions out there – how would I know which one is right for me?” I hear that question a lot from friends.
Yes, there are thousands if not tens of thousands of Chinese Metaphysics systems or schools. These can be roughly grouped into three main categories to be deployed for a person’s specific needs. But a simple guideline to remember is – Bazi is the Diagnosis, Feng Shui is the Prescription, Qimen is the Medication.
Bazi (八字) – Heaven Luck. This is your unique energy map, plotted at the day and time of your birth. It’s called Heaven Luck because this chart was deemed as something that was ‘given’ to you at your birth. Think of this as the Google Map of your life. It’s great for life strategies
Qi Men Dun Jia (奇門遁甲) – Man Luck. This is the system from which the famous Art of War was derived from. In the past, knowledge of this art was exclusive only to the Emperors and was forbidden to commoners. Fact! In the olden days, commoners found to be practicing Qi Men Dun Jia will literally lose their heads over it. On a bad day, even all their family members could be beheaded. Their neighbour who wished them good morning earlier in the day, would also be quaking in their boots, hiding under their beds.
Recently revived, this is an action-based system that is fantastic for the day-to-day battles on the business battleground.
Feng Shui (風水) – Earth Luck. This system seeks to harmonize the energies of the surrounding environment that will enhance the positive energies and reduce the negative.
To wrap-up, here’s a little known fact: many of the top business tycoons in Asia employs all three categories of Chinese Metaphysics to ensure their personal and business success.
