China History in a Cookie 刘伯温燒餅歌 !!

There’s a legendary prophecy in Malaysia that the presidency is according to the alphabetical order 'RAHMAN' and that's why 'N' will be the last. And some even say that there will be big changes coming. As ‘R’ is for Rahman, ‘A’ is for Abdul Razak, ‘H’ is Hussein Onn, ‘M’ is for Mahathir, ‘A’ is initially thought to be Anwar but came Abdullah and now ‘N’ is for Najib. But there were no extra words coming out from this legend anymore. Is it true or shall it be taken lightly?
By thinking about the current situation and country luck cycle, leads me to recall a famous Imperial Astrologer 刘伯温 ‘Liu Bo Wen’ from the Ming Dynasty of China and his very famous Cookie Song 燒餅歌 'shao bing ge’. It all began from a piece of cookie. True or not this excerpt is being translated from Liu Bo Wen’s book and it is recorded in the history of China. His entire book prophecies, describe how the Ming Dynasty era of fate and happenings.
In China’s history, the last few dynasties in accordance, were ’Tang’, ’Song’, ’Yuan’, ’Ming’ and the lastly  ’Qing’. Liu Bo Wen existed at the end of Yuan Dynasty year 1311. He was from Zhe Jiang province. He died during Ming Dynasty year 1375 at the age of 65. He is intelligent even from a very young age and 半似日兮 ‘shu du bai jia’ are well-versed in multiple knowledge like art of war, i-ching, metaphysic, politic, philosophy, history and etc. He assisted 朱元璋 ’Zhu Yuan Zhang’ in war and formed the Ming Dynasty so he became one of the founding minister. Initially, the palace of Ming dynasty was located in Nanjing China. He assisted the emperor in planning and managing the dynasty. He was involved in setting state administration, constitution, law and order. The first Ming Emperor, Zhu Yuan Zhang trusted a lot in him. He was the main influence in the country’s politics. It is well known that his Metaphysic Destiny skills are very outstanding. Let's evaluate further by taking a stroll back into the Ming Dynasty.

One day, while the Emperor Zhu Yuan Zhang was resting in his hall and enjoying his cookie 燒餅 ‘shaobing’. While the emperor is having the first bite, his assistant came to inform that Liu Bo Wen was requesting permission to meet his majesty. So the emperor took a bowl to cover his cookie and summoned Liu Bo Wen to enter the palace. 
When Liu Bo Wen arrived, the emperor asked him, “Since you are good in predictions, can you guess what is inside this bowl?”.
Immediately Liu Bo Wen took out his hand moving and utilizing the finger calculation method and then said,
"Half like a sun, half like a moon, had a bite from a golden dragon”
Amazed and the emperor said, “Since you are so accurate, can you predict how my kingdom will be in the future?”
Liu Bo Wen then hesitantly said, “This is heaven’s fate but it is not important anymore since your majesty already have many so many descendants and followers now”
Then the emperor insisted, “Although success and failure is determined by heaven but I would still like to know a little, as it is not a very difficult task for you”. 
Liu Bo Wen ponder and said, “Unless you pardon me, only then I would dare to predict for your majesty.”
The emperor agreed so Liu Bo Wen started to predict and created his Cookie Song prophecy of the entire fate on the success and failure of Ming Dynasty ruling for the 276 years. This is an extract from the first part of his prophecy



“Ming dynasty conquers china,
Southern will end, Northern will rise.
Thou your prince is your descendant,
Prevent educated successor & grandson failure.
Your fort may very look strong,
Well-guarded and very secured.
Unless when swallow flies into capital”

In brief history, the Ming conquered china. But later Zhu Yuan Zhang did not pass the throne to any of his sons but he had given it to his favorite grandson that is mild and educated. During the grandson’s reign, his ministers had advised him to remove the powers of his relatives and his uncles (sons of Zhu Yuan Zhang). His uncle, Zhu Yuan Zhang’s fourth son 朱棣 ‘zhu di’ titled swallow king 燕王 ’yen wang’ was a very powerful prince and a warlord. As he was being pressured too much, he pretended to be crazy. Later when the king was unaware, he launched an attack and took over the crown. After taking over the kingdom he found that ‘Nanjing’ 南京 the southern capital was hard to defend so finally he moved and set his Ming dynasty kingdom in ‘Beijing’ 北京 the northern capital. Aug 2015

2015 YI JI LIANG ZI YIN 乙机梁紫阴


We have just passed the 12th  month 十二月 of year 2014 in the 农历 "nong li" lunar calendar, seems like just yesterday. Looking at the past year there was a lot of foreign and people related problems and disputes. Destiny reading is only targeted on personal level and never on a national level so all the influences from the stars in the chart can only affect us. In Zi Wei Dou Shu System there are 机月同梁 “Ji Yue Tong Liang” and 杀破狼 “Sha Po Lang” category of star chart classification groups.   

>>>Jan 2014 Article
In this Year 2015 乙未年 “yi wei nian” of the main direct wealth star is being inflicted by 化忌 “hua ji”. The Tai yin star wealth attributes comes from direct, straight or professional category like business, career, professional or corporate. Tai yin star represents long term and continuous so it is classified as 正财“zheng cai” direct wealth. In this world around half the people may have thiscombination of having “tai yin” in their own palace or 三方四正  “san fang shi zheng” triangular and square combination. 
If this is the case all direct wealth industry will be very challenging.  The wealth will slowly flow outward especially if they meet with a lot of bad stars. “Sha po lang” combination group their “tai yin” will be at their family or related palaces so it will cause low affinity or issues with them especially with the female family members having a greater effect. If you are working for others and have a female employer you will be prone to unstable relation and pressure. If in the 太阴化忌 "tai yin hua ji" is in the health palace then pay attention to your mental and emotional state becoming unhappy or unstable.

In summary, if you are inflicted this “tai yin” are prone to effect from asset, wealth and money so it will bring about stress & worries. It is recommend that all affected ladies to be careful when you are outside as it is an unfavourable year for Feb 2015

Last year, even "Ma Ying Jeou" is affected by his own luck cycle. His downfall came fast, even before his term. Everyone's path is being controlled by their own luck cycle.

Doll changing physiognomy 娃娃相由心生

This famous Japanese doll called 巿松人形 “ichimatsu ningyou” was a present from a Japanese good friend to Master Yap. Sharing this real story and hoping my friends that go to Japan will be careful when buying this type of dolls. Master Yap said, “The ichimatsu dolls was kept for a long time before it was being displayed, till I bought a new apartment. To have an aesthetic interior this doll was then being placed as a decorative piece. In mid of the year 2013, I was sleeping there for two nights. In the middle of the night I heard some noise similar to sound of rattling chain at night that woke me up. The next night around the same time of 3am, I heard the same noise again and it is even more intense, followed by a sound of a cup lid dropping to the floor. I thought it might probably have been blown off by the fan. It never came to my sense that it was anything to do with any spiritual presence. I don’t usually sleep there as it was for my convenience sake of having a nearer place to rest. One afternoon after a long absence I came back to this condominium for a rest. Upon arrival I saw all the lights in the toilet have been turned on so I thought I was careless that I didn’t switch it off during last time when I left the place. The next day I went to this condo again and I found all the lights were turned on again. I began to feel something is wrong. The next day I brought a friend to witness that I switch off all the lights.  After that I came back after a few days and I that found all the lights are on again. But yet I still refused to belief that spirits are able to physically move objects. So to be safe I summoned an electrician to do a thorough checking on the electrical in the unit to make sure of any short circuit or problems. The electrician checked and confirmed that nothing is wrong and to be sure I hired yet another electrician to double check. The answer is the same that both of them confirmed there was no issues or problems with the unit electrical. Lastly I also changed the locks to be sure. But it is still occurring and the lights will be turned on randomly.  After one week when I returned again the lights was turned on. I was very angry so I went to the toilet and rooms shouted trying to summon anything to appear or come out but there wasn’t any respond nor anything ever happened.

I am a Buddhist and I began to recall my masters teaching’s that all evil or spirits must dwell in a statue like objects to reside. So I started to search around to see what can be resided. And I saw this doll and I remembered that some Japanese dolls are made out of real hair. As there was only one statue around so I went to it and placed my hand on top of the doll head and use our methods to chant and sealed the doll. And I never thought I was skilled as it was never put into practiced till now. Strangely nothing ever happened after that and all the lights do not turn on anymore.

Later after some weeks I went back there to take a rest again and during the state of being half asleep or dreamlike mode, I saw myself looking for the spirit and saw the doll beside my bed and there was a kid inside the doll seated with both hands clasp on the head. I suddenly felt angry and I wanted to hit it with my hands but there was a lot of voice preventing and telling me to stop. Shortly I was awaken and I called my master to seek for advice as I do not wish to keep the doll but dare not to destroy it. My master said he will come to settle the doll when the time is right". November 2014

Can a doll without life have a facial expression from the heart?

三人行必有我師焉, 這句名言出自孔子。









The famous verse “san ren xing bi you wo shi yan” we have something to learn from everyone comes from Confucius.
Last time when young always listening to my elderly say that “the sky is big, the land is huge and I am big”. From the reflections of the moon looking at own shadows will make one feels that they are great and amazing. Humans all are borne with such inherent arrogant said Confucius; “san ren xing bi you wo shi” we have something to learn from everyone, we adapt from the best and improve from the worst.
This verse may look simple but looking deeper it is not easy at all. If you find others are better than you, are you modest to correct from roots. To learn and accept this fact is never easy.
When you laugh at other people’s knowledge you should first ask yourself if your knowledge has reached the level that you can make fun of others? Has your knowledge level surpass the person you made fun of? Do you know their system? If not, then please be silent.
Recently my student informed that there are people on the internet criticized my articles and using my article as his game of mockery. Making fun and creating jokes along the article. My student was asking how should they handle it?  I asked, “Do you think they have entered the doorstep of 'Zi Wei"? Can analyse periodical luck? Can they apply it?”  If they have not reached this requirement then I would not like to waste my time with them. They said, “Probably read some books and a smattering of knowledge definitely have not entered the door so is ignorable. Let them continue to believe one is infallible”.
My writing of articles are for past time and recreation. On the other hand, also hoping that the young leaners of "zi wei dou shu" can advance in the correct path to continue learning. As to how much they can penetrate will be based on hard work and life experience to utilize the knowledge to read and determine a chart.
Destiny knowledge is not as simple as by just reading a book or two to grasp this metaphysics knowledge. If they find that my articles are of poor quality, please do not read. And please be assured that I do not depend on this industry to serve my meals so will not rob your rice bowl.
But would like to offer a little advice, “As a professional in this destiny industry, establish your good ethics, speech and conduct so that you can raise your dignity as the fundamentals to your integrity”
Destiny industry has always been termed and viewed negatively and considered as a lowest grade profession. So as a destiny professional you should raise your standard and inner quality. So that others will not look down on this industry’s standard and integrity.
“Lastly, if you really have genuine skills you don’t need to belittle others to look good. Talking on papers and putting into practice are entirely different”. May 2014

Does 奴僕宫 servant/friend palace has substanstial influence on a chart?

Friends palace in "zi wei dou shu" is always the most underrated palace. Those learning “dou shu” always favors the 科禄权 “Ke Lu Quan” into the 命宫 Ming palace. And they are very afraid of having 化忌 “hua ji” in Ming or shining from the 三方四正 “san fang si zheng” triangular and square combination. This is a misconception of classification in the "zi wei dou shu" studies.
Years of research shows that when the owner has many “lu” in the Ming palace they are very seldom hardworking nor ambitious. Usually they like enjoyments and easy life or tend to indulge in pleasure seeking. If your “Ming” palace have “Ke Lu Quan” in triangular and square coupled with strong stars it is pity because all your other palaces like friend, parent, health or family are susceptible to the balance of the bad stars. Without having the support of the periodical stars when only your “Ming” palace is strong then the person will look good on surface only. At the beginning of learning “zi wei dou shu” the “hua ji” is usually the most disliked stars so usually most beginners will like it to be located at friend palace and stay far away from your “Ming”. Even till date many practitioner still have this type of thinking. A friend palace represents friends, subordinates, partners, strangers and outsiders. Many times when this palace is inflicted by bad stars it will cause the chart owner to face problems like mishaps, wealth loss, murder, robbery, kidnap, rape and other crimes. So this palace should not be taken lightly especially during the decade luck cycle gets inflicted by bad stars. When all the “ji’s” are used, it will cause major issues so we must be very careful, alert and aware of it.

For example in India where a girl who went up to the bus with his boyfriend and she was gang raped. In certain countries if you are not careful as a female you could have such problems even when you are a teenager. In this bus rape case, the culprit was caught and some was ONLY sentenced to imprisonment!!!  Because of the wide spread coverage of this particular incident the authorities was then being pressured to a heavier sentenced. It is really sad. In this type of country their culture and implementations are so weak that many young women become an object of sacrifice.  This category of gang criminals and problems comes from the 奴僕 “nu pu gong” or servant/friend palace.

This is another research case from the Chinese society and this chart is also inflicted in the friend palace. Her birth detail was kindly shared by an inspector that was handling the case.  This case has shocked the whole Taiwan as her mother was also a celebrity. 

She was kidnapped while she was going to school. The ransom asked was 5 million USD. In the end she was still being murdered. The 18 years old teenager body was found in a drain, naked and tortured. The kidnappers knew her parents. Finally they were caught and sentenced to Mar 2014

2014 JIA LIAN PO WU YANG 甲廉破武阳

This 2014 year is 甲午年 “Jia Wu nian”. Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone especially those with the 杀破狼 “Sha Po Lang” format 心想事成 “Xin Xiang Shi Cheng” get what they wish , 桃花旺 “tao hua wang” good peach blossom luck and 步步高升 “bu bu gao sheng” rise in position/status.
In "zi wei dou shu" fundamentals, stars are grouped into two major formats. One is “sha po lang” format group consisting of many businessmen and 武职 “wu zhi” martial, action or activity related type of work. And the other format group is the 机月同梁 “ji yue tong liang” format where alot 文职 “wen zhi” or corporate, literary or office type of work. They are more suited to mental, strategy and planning but if this format has bad combinations they may even make a living from cheating or being a conmen.
Jia Wu year in general is more beneficial to the “sha po lang” if the chart is not afflicted by bad stars combination but they must still avoid being too proud or arrogant. Because their 太阳 “tai yang” the Sun star is having 化忌 “hua ji” bad star which is most likely in their friends, family or health palace. When the Sun star is dimmed with “hua ji” then people luck, health luck and family luck will all suffer. The minimum event happenings are just having to face with some low affinity and the most serious could be disputes, departure or sickness. The format becomes maximum when the “tai yang” is dimmed and have two or more “hua ji”. This year is prone to gossips, disagreements and disputes. So think again “Do you think you prefer wealth/career over family harmony?” Tai Yang represents head, heart, blood pressure and eyes. So Beware!!.

If your “tai yang” the sun star is in the bright palace with “hua ji” especially the “Ji Yue Tong Liang” format group as long they choose to stay low profile and humble then disputes and problems can be avoided or minimized. The “ji yue tong liang” format without the bad stars affliction have better friend, family and people support luck. Comparatively to the “Sha Po Lang” group which fair lesser in this aspect. This is a busy and hectic year but if the “tai yang” star is dimmed with “hua ji’s” then it will become a very stressful year. Then one must be careful of all actions and speech to reduce problems.
As the Sun 太阳 “Tai Yang” is related to eyes and head. Those afflicted must take care of their blood pressure and heart. Be careful of your eyes, head and accidents. Try to reduce oily food, start exercising and take care of your health. Also take care of your elderly, parent, grandfather, father or senior of their well being and health.
Be careful on foreign affairs, when travel overseas for 
business,  dealing with foreigner or outsider. Humble, patience & stay low key to 
avoid disputes and problems. Jan 2014
