These two words become interchangeable, or even synonymous. Actually there is a difference in perceptions. Fate implies things are predetermined, without control, a natural order in Universe which cannot be altered, no matter how hard we try. Destiny on the other hand has a more positive implications that we are given a choice to shape our future. Chinese Bazi reading predicts how our future unfolds known as 10-years luck pillar in Zi Ping Bazi 子平法 & Da Xian 大限 in Zi Wei 紫微斗数
Bazi reading does not transform life
Most enquiries i received think that bazi reading can turnaround a bad life to good. No such thing. Objective of Chinese birth reading is to raise self awareness, point you the right direction and things you should do but not inducing “change” by itself.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results Einstein
How can we expect a different result in life by doing the same thing over and over again. By altering our habits or thoughts then we can anticipate a different outcome in our life.
Using Qi Men Dun Jia to improve daily luck
Our luck can only improve through our own efforts.
Bazi or feng shui equip you with tools to improve your luck. One can’t improve luck without effort. Just to share with you, i recommended a client to grow some plants in a certain sector. He complained after 1 month the plants keep dying. i told him “you can buy a few replacement, rotate to keep it healthy”. Problem is he did not put in sufficient effort to improve himself.
Most people wanted a shortcut or quick fix to turn their fortune around. That is why they are willing to pay thousands of dollars for some so-call “good luck charm” sold by other masters thinking that their bad luck will change to good luck. How i know? these people approach me to analyse their bazi again, finding that the “expensive toys” didn’t work. Seriously it is naive to believe in such things. There is no shortcut in life. How to expect luck if you did not put in effort.
Law of Positive Attractions
The law of positive attractions state that there are no lazy people, just people without focus and specific goals. Bazi reading tell us who we are and what goals to pursue. Map our future, telling us what to do and what not.
For desperate cases, I advised my clients to use qi men dun jia formula to improve their luck. I recommended him to spend at least 30 mins to visualize his goals at his best calculated location. This was done when house feng shui is poor and both bazi and luck are bad.
Luck requires focus, discipline, effort and persistence. We need to sacrifice and step out of our comfort zone. It involves tweaking our personality, characteristics, habit, thinking, or get a secondary education.
How and why bazi reading can help you
In order to help you to understand better, here is a real-life case.
A Japanese restaurateur invited me to do feng shui. Her business was losing money. After doing feng shui, as usual i follow-up with bazi analysis. Found out from her birth chart that she is not suited to do her own business. i verify with her. She told me she got into this to help her partner (boyfriend). She confirmed my reading.
Although her birth chart shows xin instead of geng metal. But her Xin metal 干透支藏 is good enough to do well in the corporate world. The only flaw in her birth structure (should i be critical) is that she is soft with her leadership style & some job-hopping before 30 years old. Her birth traits reveal her as risk-averse, systematic, good management, hardworking, flexible, determined all good traits as a manager. i advised once she recovered her losses, consider closing the business.
After 3 years, she contacted me for lunch and told me that she was promoted as regional director. The beauty of bazi reading is awareness and taking the right course of action.
Luck happens when preparation meets opportunity
This Chinese wisdom summarize it all:
命由天定，birth right is granted by God (heaven) 运由己造，create your own-luck/destiny 预知运势, recognize your luck directions 积极面对, face it positively 改善自身, improve oneself 提升生活 thereby advance your life！
Lucky people generate their own good fortune via four basic principles. They consistently horn their craft by creating and noticing opportunities, make decisions objectively by focusing on their goals and intuition, create self-fulfilling prophesies through positive expectations, and adopt a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good.
