My BaZi (八字) & Feng Shui (風水) Journey

My Background

I was born in Taiwan and grew up in Singapore, going through the typical path of a Singaporean and graduating with a degree from NUS Business School and the University Scholars Programme.

My affinity with Chinese culture & history and started when I was 18 when I first started to get in touch with my Taiwanese roots. I ventured into this field with a lot of appreciation and respect for Chinese history, where I started reading Chinese classical texts in classic Chinese (文言文)。 As a result, I’m one of the few practitioners who can explain the theory, as well as the history, of ‘fortune telling’ and Feng Shui in both layman English and Mandarin. I’ve read more than 700 charts professional ever since I started this and I’ve got to witness first hand how this art can have a profound impact on people’s lives. You will likely find me very different from the incumbent practitioners whom have been around for a while now, and there’s a good reason why I am different.

I would encourage you to go through my blog to get to know me better. There’s no need to rush for a consultation – I’m always around and easily accessible.

 

BaZi | 八字 |天源術 | 사주팔자 |

Many clients have come to me for BaZi consultations to ask about topics such as career, wealth, marriage, health and other aspects of their lives. It gives me great satisfaction to know that my knowledge in this field is able to help others find clarity and direction. Do note that I can only give my personal opinions on matters and you should never regard it as a replacement for proper professional help and advice from doctors or counsellors.

Whatever stage of life you’re in now, you can always benefit from a reading to prepare for what’s ahead. Remember, nothing is set in stone. BaZi (八字) is the manifestation of nature’s laws and describes the unfolding of these laws – where the path ultimately leads to is still up to you. Our ancestors developed BaZi (八字) as a guide precisely because we have the ability to change and influence ‘fate’. Our ancestors would not spend centuries developing this art only to tell us that we are unable change things.

Should you wish to do a consultation, do take a look at the FAQ section and testimonials to help you with your decision. I’d also encourage everyone to read through my blog to understand my views on the subject and decide whether I’m the right consultant for you.

 

Feng Shui | 風水 |

If you are looking to have your current house’s feng shui assessed or are in the process of looking for a new home, I would strongly encourage you read through my blog to hear my thoughts and views on the subject. You’ll notice that I hold very different views from the incumbent commercialized practitioners who rely solely on metaphysics for their income. There’s a saying that goes 七分命理不出门, 三分风水闯天下。It is easy for anyone to pass off as a feng shui master; the real test lies in their knowledge in the theory of metaphysics (命理) and astrology.

There are tons of feng shui masters out there and you may be wondering “What makes all of you different?” My blog aims to answer that question and help you make an informed decision. This service is not something I feel like I should hard sell, and the role I see myself playing has always been that of an educator to demystify and pass down what our ancestors have developed.

I’ve also recently been appointed as the Key Opinion Leader of 99.co, Singapore’s largest property portal, for Feng Shui related matters!

 


WHO AM I REALLY?

I’m your everyday person who happened to develop an interest in metaphysics since young. I hold a full-time job at a start-up and this is my sideline and I intend to keep it this way for various reasons – ethical reasons in particular. I don’t rely on this as my main source of income, and that takes away all moral hazards when I conduct my consultations and develop myself in this field. I don’t feel it’s right to use marketing gimmicks to make people part with their money and neither do I believe in charms or items and I see this field strictly as a means to improve oneself and nature’s laws that we are bound to.

WHAT IS BAZI (八字)?

BaZi (八字) is a form of Chinese astrology, more commonly known as the ‘4 Pillars of Destiny‘ in the West; 天源術 in Japan and 사주팔자 in Korea. To break it down further, in essence, it is a time-keeping system linked to the 24 Solar Terms and the sexagenary cycle which repeats itself every 60 years. The ancient Chinese believed in the ‘unison with the Heavens’ (天人合一),and through the process of measuring time and the laws that bind us to it, they realized that our lives paralleled nature’s laws. BaZi is a description of the interplay of these laws which allows practitioners to explore the potential, strengths and weaknesses of the individual and how he or she interacts with the world.

BaZi is an art is that is relevant till this day. Society may change, but the laws of the universe doesn’t.

SO, WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT?

I’ve read through all the Chinese classical texts that are deemed a must-read before anyone should even start commenting on a chart or house. The knowledge I possess does not come from the internet nor books written by modern authors; the books I read are from China’s dynastic period when this art flourished without being tainted by commercial motivations. Some of these books, to name a few, are 《三命通会》,《滴天髓》,《子平真诠》,《穷通宝鉴》,《沈氏玄空学》,《八宅明镜》,《阳宅十书》,《黄帝宅经》,《葬书》。

You will find that a lot of ‘practitioners’ out there have never touched a single Chinese classic. If I say something in my report, I will always be able to point out which book and chapter I got it from and explain the theory behind it to you.

Again, I am not an advocate of buying lucky charms or figurines to change your luck. There is no mention of such ‘remedies’ in Chinese classical texts, so be wary of practitioners who suggest items as a remedy.

WHAT GOT ME INTO THIS?

I had a challenging start to life and was simply looking for an answer which eventually led me to metaphysics – just that I went deeper than most people given my ability to read Chinese as someone born in Taiwan. I didn’t go into this field harbouring intentions to monetize it some day. It started off as a genuine interest in the subject and it was always used as an ice-breaker when I meet new people at social gatherings.

Many of my friends felt that I could help a lot of people with this knowledge encouraged me to do this as a sideline. I decided to give it a shot and never looked back. It was uneasy at the start, but seeing how some clients have really benefited from this, it’s turned out to be a really fulfilling job.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

This art is something I take a lot of pride in. It has helped me a lot in my life and I had the privilege of seeing how this field can help others too. My knowledge comes straight from the Chinese classics and I will explain step-by-step how I arrived to the conclusion regarding your BaZi chart or house. What’s important is that you complete the consultation with a feeling of clarity and direction – it is not supposed to confused you further which is something that happens rather often.

What I can offer on top of my expertise is my sincerity and appreciation for your trust in me. I will always do my best for my clients. Yes, you may find me expensive, but rest assured I’ll make it worth your while. Do spend some time to go through my testimonials and blog.

    5 star review  I was looking for a fengshui Master to assist me in my house hunting and bazi reading. I happened to found Sean in a forum and decided to give him a shot, after reading his blog. After submitting the form on his blog, he replied me very quickly and was able to send me his report by the very next day. The quality of his report is very good, providing in depth explanation on the nature and development of my Bazi chart. He responses well over email and whatsapp. He was able to identify major events that had happened previously and was able to articulate some of my current concerns. He also provides helpful advise on how best to overcome some of the obstacles that we would be facing. He is now currently advising me in my house hunting and I have full faith that he will help me find the right house for me and my family.

    5 star review  Recently, I was looking for a reliable fortune telling consultant due to some personal issues and I came across good reviews about Sean on the forum. Hence, I decided to engage Sean to do a Bazi reading for me. He is patience in explaining the chart professionally to me. And I would say he indeed knows his stuff very well comparing to some fortune tellers I encountered. He has been accurate spot on some events I had experienced. He actually accurately predicted the year where someone close to me passed away which actually did shocked me a little! He has also correctly spot on that the relationship between my mum is not in very good term and indeed it should be improved on and it will help in resolving part of my issues. Through our communication, he has been encouraging and been very patience in answering all my questions despite my absent minded character and has provided me with good advices on how to self improve and letting me know what are the flaws in me as well as the elements that are lacked in my chart. Overall, it has been a pleasant experience with his service and would definitely recommend him as he would provide u with details that he would see from your chart.

    5 star review  If you are reading this review you are probably on the fence whether to engage Sean for 八字 reading. You're thinking: is he a scammer? Is he really accurate? Why so expensive? He's so young, 'sure boh'? What use do I have for my 八字 if everything that's meant to happen will happen? Let me take you through the process from being the one with all these questions to being a satisfied customer. 1. No, he's not a scammer. I got the charts and report in my email within 24 hours after paying and quality is guaranteed. And he answered all my questions almost instantly. 2. Yes, he is accurate. He was able to identify major milestones and events that happened in my life till now, and what's coming next. I have a little bit of background knowledge on 八字 and 道德经 myself to know that he does know his stuff. 3. Seems expensive at first yes, but if you think about it, it's only about 6 restaurant dinners altogether. 一分钱一分货。Why not invest in something that might bring you greater returns than say, share dividends? Knowing your 八字 can help you to make decisions to earn more money or avoid situations where you might lose money! 4. It's important that you feel comfortable with the person analysing your 八字 because you will be sharing many of your life secrets and problems with this person. I am about Sean's age, so that actually helped me to open up and also feel at ease to ask questions. It's not the age that matters but the authenticity of the methods and sincerity of the person. 5. Same reason why we have weather forecasts. If you know it might rain, why not bring an umbrella out? Rain or shine, an umbrella is ever useful. Then again, Sean reminded me that 八字 can be transcended. No umbrella? Nevermind. You can always look for a friend who can share theirs with you. P.S: I am not a gullible aunty who believes in random hocus pocus stuff. I am a research scientist who, based on my own understanding of physical science, see Chinese metaphysics as a wisdom of ancient scholars which got lost in translation in this modern world. Once again, thanks Sean!
