History of Qi Men Dun Jia

It was said that according to legend, Qi Men Dun Jia was taught to Yellow Emperor (黃帝/黄 帝 Huáng Dì- 2697 BC to 2597 BC) by a fairy, 九天玄女 (Jiǔ Tiān Xuán Nǚ). During that time, Yellow Emperor was fighting against a rebel called 蚩 尤 (Chī Yóu). Chī Yóu was very familiar with the art of Yin & Yang and has the capability to summon the wind and rain. It was said that his head is as strong as copper and arm is like iron (铜头铁臂) and able to win any wars. During battle, Yellow Emperor did not have the capability to defeat him. In desperation, 九天玄女 (Jiǔ Tiān Xuán Nǚ) passed the art of Qi Men Dun Jia to Yellow Emperor. With the art of Qi Men Dun Jia, Yellow Emperor invented the 指南车 (South Pointing Chariot). Yellow Emperor uses the Qi Men Dun Jia art and South Pointing Chariot to win the war against Chī Yóu.

The Three Lucks

The concept of Heaven luck refers to destiny. There is a mapping in all our lives, determined prior to our birth, and influenced by our karma. Hence the concept of “Heaven luck”: this choice is made before we can make conscious choices. The form of Chinese astrology called BaZi (4 pillars) allows us to see how the Heaven luck works in our lives. It gives us a blueprint, our boundaries as well as our potential. Here is an example: in term of wealth and fame, we can say that the philanthropic Warren Buffett or the brilliant Jodie Foster both have has a bigger playground than, let’s say, someone who is born and spend his life in a favela. Such a person can still transform its destiny with good deeds and dedication; but the game is on a totally different scale. Karma has set up a different game at birth…The playground does not guarantee the happiness, still. This is what we see in your Bazi analysis.

With such a mapping of our lives as seen in Chinese astrology, you may think that you have no free will left. Far from it! Taoism also talks about Human luck. Human luck is about choosing which path we take, and how we shape our destiny. Our karma indicates some directions to make our lives easier, and some lessons to learn: but to take this path and to accept the process is part of our free will, to some extent. This is how we build a different karma! Without free will there will be no choice, therefore no concept of karma… Traditionally a Taoist was trying to be virtuous and to live according to a code of conduct, and to take limited action. Nowadays our lives offer much more options and endless choices, which all transform our destiny. Certainly in old times, they did not have to choose everyday between fast food or a healthier diet, chat on Facebook or working, buying some new clothes or giving to a charity. Or, as I call it, choosing the right dessert. We live in the time of instantaneity and our karma and destinies have transformed too Some events are written in stone and some others are a matter of choice. Knowing which are which, through Bazi and astrologic forecasting, is a definite advantage in modern society.

Finally, another major factor in our lives is the influence of Earth luck. The places where we live and work send blessings, curses or blessings in disguise, in subtle or not so subtle ways. Earth luck is the one Feng Shui deal with. For most people who are not aware of Feng Shui, it is not possible to know which part of their life comes from their place. However all of us have seen very different outcomes after we moved in a new place. Likewise, Feng Shui can make or break a business, even if it is a successful franchise.You don’t have to be a victim of this invisible Earth Luck. The great strength of Feng Shui is that properly designed, it works for you day after day. Once your home and business are harmonized, you already regain some control on your life and can focus on improving the rest.
