How Ba Zi Helps In Feng Shui?
Ba Zi can be translated as ‘Eight Characters’. Ba Zi is derived from a birth date: the year, month, day, and time you were born. Each consists of a distinct pair of characters, hence making up the eight characters. From these eight characters, thousands of combinations can be found. Ba Zi is derived from four pairs of characters thus; sometimes some people refer to it as the Four Pillars or Si Zhu.
To the Chinese, a period of sixty years is known as one Jia Zi. In ancient China, from experience and by observing nature, the Chinese discovered a phenomenon. A cycle of climatic or chronology events seems to repeat every sixty years. Meaning if the year 2000 is full of rainfall, the climate for 2060 would be similar. With this knowledge, prevention can be made. Especially, the weather has an impact on agriculture, economy, and health.
Yin and Yang variation
The eight characters are made up of Yin and Yang variation of the Five Elements: Yang Wood, Yin Wood, Yang Fire, Yin Fire, Yang Earth, Yin Earth, Yang Metal, Yin Metal, Yang Water and Yin Water. By analyzing the combination of these eight characters, the personality, destiny of a person can be determined.
With a deeper understanding of one’s own personality, you can open up potential and maximize growth, have better emotional control and decision making. With the knowledge of upcoming influence forces, you are more ready to react and bring out the best performance and avoid unnecessary setbacks. Knowing your destiny does not mean “That is it. I am fate to be…” It should be view as general guidance, a map, a motivation booster.
Destiny can be changed. But you have to put in a lot of hard work, a lot of perseverance, a lot of determination. There is no free lunch. For example, you have a Ba Zi which indicates that you will be rich. Each day passes by, you dream about what you are going to do when you are rich. You do nothing to make your dream come true.
You say to yourself “I am fated to be rich one day it does not matter if I work hard or not …” Soon, one day, when you are too old and weak, you will find that you are not rich at all, instead, you are in debt, facing bankruptcy!
