Chinese Physiognomy

Now if you are wondering what is Jackie Chan, the actor doing here? Well, it is to explain that in chinese physiognomy for ladies, don't worry if you have a nose like his, in fact it is auspicious as the nose apart from being the wealth palace is also the spouse star for females. A nose like that would means you would get a good husband in the old chinese thought. Pert and shapely noses as you can see from the faces of supermodel and actresses are associated in the past with chinese opera female performers who ultimately ends up as being the second wife or concubine of the Rich. The position is at 45 to 48, however it must be balanced with the rest of the face, does not means that big nose will be good. As have been mentioned in the earlier post, the nose represent the Wealth palace for all. Importantly, the nose must not be crooked and should be fleshy and strong looking. There should not be any mark or mole on it. The tip of the nose should be round, no 48 position like the above picture. There should not be any scar on it. Surprisingly, moles generally not considered positive but if found just below the nose by the side above the upper lip is considered good as it mean locking the wealth into the nostrils, to be able to accumulate wealth. People with this feature normally have substantial savings in bank. You can try confirming it by hinting to people diplomatically when you see this feature with :' Oh you look like the types who are able to plan well for finance...'

The reasons I have chosen to discuss these palaces together, the travelling palace, career, life palace and parent palace is that it is to be read all together, it will determine the person's wealth or career more clearly as for face reading, it is not enough just by looking at one palace alone.

The siblings palace is represented by both eyebrows, if the length of the eyebrows is longer than the eyes, it would normally denotes big family with 3 siblings onwards.If it is bushier and unifom in growth, then it would
means that the siblings get along well together and help each other. If the right eyebrow (female siblings) and left eyebrow (male siblings) are messy and not uniformly, it would means they don't get along well together. Marks or breaks in the eyebrows would also denote health problems or mishaps for the sibling depending on which eyebrow. The other aspects to be read is with the Parents palace distance from the eyebrows, if one eyebrow is higher than the other or what we will call Ying Yang eyebrows which means this person probably have half siblings from a stepmother or stepfather. The position of the ears with the position of the Parents palace if are not uniform or as mentioned, one higher or lower will also indicates this possibility of half siblings.

The tips of the eyes at the position 39 is considered the Marriage palace, left representing guys and right for ladies on the relevant palace as with the chinese principle. As with Jackie Chan, the tip of his eyes have what you can call fish tails or Peach Blossom lines on his right eye representing the wife which indicates flamboyance and showbiz talents. Coincidentally his wife was also a famous chinese actress, Lin Feng Chiao in retirement after marriage. As from the strong lines at the tips of the right eye, it indicates he respect his wife alot and they get along well.

Okay, I got to go now as I have an appointment. Would try to find time to come back and continue later.

Till-then, cheers.

Face Reading

Okay, let' s continue, the numbers above denotes the age of a person's life. We can also use it separately to point out the twelve palace mentioned in the earlier post. Now we will look at three of the palaces together,
The travelling horses or  遷移 Travel palace, position 23 and 24, the Career Palace事業, position 15 to 25 and the Life palace命宮, no 28.

As in the above picture, at position 23 and 24 would means this person is mobile and suitable for jobs which requires frequent travels and would have no problem in starting a new life in away from his hometown. If this two position is dark or scarred or with a mole, then one would have to be mindful while travelling as it could denotes mishaps or unsuccessful business trips. If this two positions are low as the below picture, then he is more suited for a stable and desk-bound jobs.

Similarly for the Career palace at the positions from 15 o 25, if it is high and broad with at least 5 fingers wide from position 15 straight down to 25, the person is normally not the shy type and can be suitable for jobs such as from a showroom salesman to being a CEO. The low forehead type are normally more suited for behind the scene jobs and not being in the limelight. You should also look from the side of the face forehead to analyse further whether it protrudes which will indicate a thinker or the forehead which slanted backward and would means this is a guy who will act first without doing thinking. Lastly, the most important Life palace at position 28 would need to be at least two finger wide between the two eyebrows and should not have any marks or mole on it as it normally denotes an unhappy life with financial hardships. If it is less then two fingers, it would normally means that the person is stressful and paranoid even if well-off, spending most of the time being pressurised by his own dissatisfactions after achieving whatever he wants. Any line on this area is also not a good omen indicating possible financial disasters. This three areas should be not be dark or have any indentations, you might then in your mind wonder: what about races who are dark, ah, then we would want to see these areas glows or shiny in comparison with the rest.

Anyway, these are just general guidelines for the Chinese face reading techniques and would still have to read in line with the rest of the face aspects as a whole to get a complete Picture. Okay, I am bored and would be back again.

Till-then, cheers.

Some music to wind down the week.

Give me some Face, ok?

Ha-ha, the above title is a local lingo translated from chinese meaning give me some respect.Thought I would start writing a series of Face Reading as I can't think of any opinion to share at the moment. So here we goes.....

It is logical that a person's appearance as well as face plays a part in Destiny. E.g. If a very rich person likes your face, you would then have met your benefactor or to put it simple, if you go for a job interview and the person in charge likes your face, you stand a better chance when there is a choice to be made between you and another who have the same qualifications. Anyway, lets look at other aspects first as in the picture above, the thirteen palaces translated as in below:

1)父母- Parent Palace
2)遷移 Travel
3)福德  Virtue or Satisfaction
4)兄弟 Siblings (This is located on the eyebrow itself)
5)田宅 Property
6)事業 Career
7)命宮 Life
8)夫妻 Spouse
9)病厄 Health
10)子女 Children
12)交友Friends or Junior Staff
13)小人People who will creates problem in your life

1)父母- Parent Palace normally refer to the affinity between a person and the father父(Left) or Mother母(Right). It is also known as the Sun and Moon position. Scars or dent on this positions indicate poor affinity or relationships with parents. If the blood vein in that position is thick and highly visible could means the father or the mother would face hardship in the later part of their lives.

Okay, this will do for the moment. Will be back to explain further on the palaces on how to do the readings. Knowing some general face reading techniques help in doing face to face bazi or zwds readings. Have a great weekend with Kitaro' s Silk Road.

Problems? No problem...

I like this free article(well, don't you?) so thought of sharing it here. Wonder why some people pays thousands of dollars to figure out something like this. Something similar to high powered life management from Feng Shui Seminars but which makes more sense as you can start using it right away...

18 Problem Solving Questions
Curt Rosengren, On Thursday 14 October 2010, 23:38 SGT

Whatever your path, at some point you're going to come smack up against problems that feel like in impenetrable wall. While there is no magic wand solution to making that wall disappear, asking questions is the next best thing. Asking questions can help you pinpoint where the trouble is, identify creative approaches to solving the problems, and even change your perception of reality so the problem disappears (or at least becomes irrelevant).

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to using questions to solve the problems you encounter. So instead, here are 18 questions to help you design your own approach. You'll probably find some questions more effective than others, depending on the situation.

This isn't a step-by-step list of questions to ask, so scan the list and see which ones jump out at you. Pick one and start there. See what happens. Then pick another one and dig into that. Build on what gives you results and toss what doesn't. Use these questions as a starting point for a self-taught mastery of problem solving.

1. What are the obstacles? Take inventory of the obstacles getting in your way. Get them out of your head and onto paper so you can start sorting through them. It sounds like a no-brainer, but I'm always amazed at how often people leave their problems in the abstract, flying around inside their brains.

2. What one change could I make that would make the biggest impact? Sometimes one big change can make seemingly impenetrable obstacles suddenly feel more permeable. It can shift things enough that the other contributing factors lose their potency or become irrelevant. Or it can take you far enough down the path toward a solution that you can get a new perspective.

3. Which obstacles can be easily removed? If there are obstacles you're facing that are easily removed, start there to get some momentum. You might be surprised at how much difference it makes.

4. What needs to happen for this problem to disappear? Look at the mechanics of the problem. Take a look at the factors contributing to the problem, and then explore which ones need to be changed, improved, or eliminated.

5. Where are the sticking points? Think of getting from where you are to where you want to go as a process flow. First this happens, then that, and then that. Map out a step-by-step ideal world flow of how you could get there. Then look at that flow and identify the sticking points by comparing it with your less-than-ideal world situation. Where are the sticking points?

6. How can I improve this process? Instead of looking at it from a problem perspective, look at it as a process improvement exercise. How could you improve your process? How could you improve how you approach it? How could you improve the efforts you are making?

7. Am I the problem? How? No amount of external problem-solving will do the trick if the obstacle is really created by you. Do you have attitudes, habits, beliefs, etc. that are creating this problem?

8. Are there other paths to the end I'm looking for? Write down the obvious way to get from where you are to where you want to go. Then ignore it. Come up with as many other paths as you can think of for getting there.

9. Can I change any of the variables? Often when we look at problems, we see them in terms of a finite set of parameters. List all the variables you see (how much time it takes, who is involved, whether to do something yourself or hire someone to do it, etc.) and play with changing them. What effect could that have?

10. Who has done this before? If someone else has already invented the wheel, don't bang your head bloody trying to create it again. Who else has been up against the problem you're encountering? Can you talk to them? Read about how they approached it?

11. Does this really matter? This might seem like a funny question to include in a list with a problem solving focus, but the ultimate in problem solving is when the problem instantaneously ceases to exist. Sometimes we get so caught up in making something happen, or doing it a certain way, that we don't realize it is taking more of our energy than solving it would benefit us. If you are only trying to solve the problem "because it's there," consider dropping it and focusing your energy and effort elsewhere.

12. What would I do if I didn't think this were a problem? Sometimes our perception that a problem exists becomes the problem itself. Try exploring what you would do if you didn't see whatever you're up against as a problem. The example that comes to mind is two people without a degree. One says, "I don't have a degree, so I'm limited in my options." The other says, "I don't have a degree...now how can I start creating more options?"

13. What information do I need? What information am I missing? Sometimes problems exist because we don't have enough information to solve them. Identifying what information you need and what information you're missing gives you a starting point change that.

14. How would ______ solve this? Get out of your own story and look at it from someone else's point of view. If there is someone you especially admire, or someone who is well known for solving things like this, ask yourself how they would solve it.

15. How would I solve this if I had to take an opposite-brained approach? Are you more naturally linear or creative in your approach to things? Whichever it is, spend some time doing the opposite. Look for resources to help you take an approach to problem-solving that is the opposite of your natural tendencies.

16. How many solutions can I come up with? Don't worry about quality with this one. Go for quantity. Make it a game. You'll probably come up with a whole lot of goofy ideas, but they just might pave the way for some good ones.

17. What new habits could I create that would help me overcome this? If your goals are going to come to fruition, you are the one who is going to have to be the driving force. Are there any habits that could help make you more effective, reducing friction and limitations in the process?

18. How could ____ relate to my problem? At the end of my sessions with clients, I used to pull a tarot card and read the explanation in the accompanying book. There was no divination intent to it. Instead, it was accompanied by the question, "Does this relate to your current situation in any way?" Sometimes it didn't, but 75 percent of the time that question yielded valuable insights. The card offered something specific for their minds to bounce off, helping them make random connections and have unexpected insights.

You can do that with just about anything, whether it is a tarot card, news about miners stuck in a mine (how could this relate to my career?), your favorite artist's approach to painting, or the traffic on the way to work. It offers a way to get outside your standard set of thoughts and associations.

Questions alone won't solve your problems. You also have to combine them with action and persistent, consistent effort. But the more good questions you ask, the more problem-solving potential you have.

Have a good week as by now, you should have revved up your engine...
