Comforting Citrine

Citrine belongs to the family of quartz and is consider rare in nature, its color caused it to be confused with topaz. People have been using quartz as jewelry since ancient times. The Egyptians gathered striped agates and use them as talisman, ancient Greeks use rock crystal ornament, Romans wore rings set with Amethyst.

Today, in modern times, its attractive color, durability and affordability makes it the top-selling yellow-to-orange gem (Refractive index: 1.544 to 1.553) and Mohs Hardness of 7.

In the contemporary market, Citrine’s most popular shade is an earthy, deep, brownish or reddish orange.

Since natural Citrine is rare, most of the Citrine on the market is the result of heat treatment, which causes some amethyst to change color from undesirable pale violet to an attractive yellow. The amethyst’s original hue can determine the richness of the resulting Citrine yellow color.

Natural Citrine links or work with manifestation, imagination, and personal will. It also represent the power of the sun, it is warm and comforting, energizing, and life-giving. It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight of spring, clearing the mind and stirring the soul to action.

Its frequency awakens creativity and imagination and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages the fullness of life, fresh beginnings, and new pursuits.

Natural Citrine does not hold or accumulate negative energy, but rather transmutes, dissipates, and grounds it, making it extremely protective for the environment. It works out problems on both the physical and subtle levels, transforming negative thoughts and feelings into positive ones. It is one of only two crystals on Earth that never needs to be cleared or cleansed. The other is Kyanite.

Citrine is a transparent, yellow variety of Quartz, ranging in color from pale to golden yellow, honey, or almost brown, and may contain rainbow or sparkle inclusions. The name comes from the French word citron, meaning “lemon”. It was used as a gem in Greece as far back as 300 B.C., and because of its color, is sometimes mistakenly referred to as Gold Topaz, Madeira or Spanish Topaz, or Safranite.

Citrine is also known as the Success Stone or Merchant’s Stone. It will manifest success and abundance in your business or career. Besides wearing CItrine as a jewelery, we can also place it on our personal wealth sector in own room or on the house wealth sector in the living room.

There are several ways to derive the wealth sector, namely:
1. Using 8 Mansion Method
2. Using Personal Wealth Sector in QiMen
3. Using Annual QiMen Approach
4. Using 10 Deity (Direct / Indirect Wealth) in BaZi
5. Using Wealth Phrase in 12 Cycle
6. Using Gua Number + Flying Stars

Citrine being yellow in color is related to Earth Element in Chinese Metaphysics. The stone stimulates digestion, the spleen, and the pancreas. It helps keep skin, nails, hair healthy and is good for relieving skin irritations and allergies, especially those caused by food.

Citrine’s radiant yellow energy activates, opens, and energizes the Sacral Chakras. The Sacral Chakra is located below the belly button. It controls the flow of energy and is the center of gravity of the body and the life force. It controls the flow of information to and fro between body and the mind.

Location: Below the navel
Colour: Orange
Organs: Urogenital system
Identity: Pleasure & Inner Child
Functions: Enjoyment of life, creativity, pleasures, desires, sexuality, emotions, inner child
connection
Balanced Energy: Creative, emotionally balanced, open to one’s emotions, balanced sexuality

The Lower Emotional Body (connected to the sacral chakra). The lower emotional body follows the general shape of the physical and etheric bodies, but it is more amorphous and fluid, and it extends outwardly by a few centimetres. This body does not duplicate the physical body; it is more like an energy field. It contains moving energy “blobs” or “clouds” of different colours, each being felt as a specific emotion. These colours may vary from bright clear hues to dark muddy ones, depending on the type of emotions.

Singing Bowl

Tibetan Singing Bowls are used as an ancient form of regeneration that vibrates and produces deep tone. The sound of Tibetan singing bowls harmonizes and allows deep relaxation of both sides of the brain stimulating stress relief on all levels. Tibetan bowls are forged with alloys that usually contain from five to seven precious metals, which are connected to the planets of our galaxy: lead (Saturn), tin (Jupiter), iron (Mars), copper (Venus), mercury (Mercury), silver (the Moon) and gold (the Sun). Besides Tibetan bowls, there are also Nepalese, Japanese, Bengalese and Crystal Bowls the latter are made out of glass.

To play a Singing Bowl, one must either strike the bowl or rub the rim with a mallet. The action taken with the mallet is the first step in creating sound with a Singing Bowl. The friction created either by rubbing or striking a Singing Bowl creates vibrations. The continuing sound is called resonance. Resonance is the note we hear even after the player ceases contact between the singing bowl and the mallet.

The material by which the Singing Bowl is made can change the depth and tone of the sound. Crystal Bowls will not sound the same as bronze alloy bowls. Wooden mallets and padded mallets will produce different sounds as well. The size, shape and weight of the singing bowl can also affect what tones are produced. Adding water could change the note of the singing bowl as water is more difficult to vibrate than the air inside an empty singing bowl. Cushions, rings, or other accessories also alter the sound of singing bowls, often dampening or softening the sounds.

The benefits of Singing Bowl during a relaxation session, significantly decreases both blood pressure and heart rate. Additionally, using Singing Bowl with meditation reduces the feeling of physical pain, as well as decrease negative moods such as tension, anger and depression. Other benefits includes:

• Deep relaxation
• Improves mood
• Improves hypertension
• Better pain management
• Reduces stress, anger, and anxiety
• Lowers blood pressure and heart rate

Participatory Universe and Manifestation

In the course of encountering QiMen (QMDJ), notice there is a new-notion or interesting idea of using QiMen Deities for Manifestation, walking the 7-Stars Path and even signing contracts with “The Universe”.

Let’s look at manifestation. This concept is better explain using science of quantum fluctuations and the idea of Participatory Universe.

John Wheeler’s hunch is that the universe is built like an enormous feedback loop, a loop in which we contribute to the ongoing creation of not just the present and the future but the past as well. Wheeler envisioned that conscious observers partake in the creation of the participatory universe; the entire universe is filled with events, where the possible outcomes of countless interactions become real, where the infinite variety inherent in quantum manifests as a physical.

And as Stephen Hawking puts in it The Grand Design: “the universe appeared spontaneously, starting off in every possible way. Most of these [alternative beginnings] correspond to other universes.” Or, based in simulation theory, we (humans) could be living out a specific theme in a dimensional universe or simulation; and the act of manifestation is merely the act of reaching out to our higher-self for guidance, assistance, walk-through, solutions, decisions and goals (it should be a simple YES or NO; idea of contracts is irrelevant and is of a lower vibrational body).

In energy works, there are 4 main realms:
1. Divine
2. Spirit
3. Soul
4. Physical

And when users of manifestation are meditating, they are actually focusing or working with the soul level. This is where the higher-self, soul light and astral resides. If these energy vibration aren’t activated, the resonance could be pick up by other energy of negative qualities and not our higher-self or soul light.

Also, whether we can reach out or bridge to the higher self at the soul level largely depend on our karmic blockage on the physical level. Karmic blockage can be seen as the residual impact of memories of the soul. And even if we can bridge it, is this manifestation part of the original theme (or are we going against the original theme) we chosen when we sign up for our ‘vacation’ on Earth?

Noticed that in QiMen Manifestation, the area of focus is about using deity or giving the deity a command. Firstly, QMDJ is a divination tool, the model and naming convention although gives it a mystical feel, it is not use for mediation or visualization. To do mediation and visualization, the correct source or book to use or learn from is — The Secret of the Golden Flower 《太乙金华宗旨》. Secondly, given that we are at the physical level, even if we could bridge the soul level and reach the spirit level, are we anointed by the Divine to give command to Deity at the spirit level?

Running into technicals, in QiMen, there are several style. ZhiRun method, ChaiBu method, MaoShan method, Yin Plate method. Each of these give a different deity. Hence, users of manifestation might need to reflect upon which deity is the correct guardian deity.

In addition to these method of plotting, there is also flying style vs rotation style of QiMen. This created ambiguity as there now are 2 different set of Deity, users of QiMen Manifestation now need to discern the accuracy.

Lastly, assume the user of QiMen Manifestation come to a consensus on which is the correct deity to use. Another questionable area is why among the Classical 3 Style (三式), the 10 Deities of QMDJ is adopted instead of the 16 Deities in Tai Yi Divination (太乙神数) or / vs the 12 Deities in Liu Ren Style (大六壬); which supposedly exist earlier then QMDJ. Incidentally, this 2 other method has more Deities to choose from, and is more granular than QMDJ.

Or (maybe) we are now in period 9 which energy and vibration represent that of religion practices, spiritual awakening (and female dominance); and knowing that Classical Metaphysic might no longer be a sustainable revenue driver, there might be a business justification to use methods of manifestation and incorporate with Classical Metaphysic to revitalize the product / service curve and extend it’s life-cycle. The “truth”, perhaps only the original founder of “QiMen Manifestation” will know.

Parting Shot (P.S.) ~ if we understand this (below) quote, we would have already understand and know how to apply a “Manifestation Prayer”.

Spirit Consciousness

Many people now understand the power of their thoughts and emotions to affect their present and manifest their future. However, the greatest manifestation power does not come from the lower levels of thoughts (e.g. words and visualisations), it comes from the intentions that created them.

Regardless of the words and the images we consciously create when intending to manifest something, it is the intentions we send out within those lower vibrational creations that really have an impact. We may say something in our mind to try to manifest or do something, when our true intention, in the background, may be to wait for a bit longer before we manifest it, or to never do it at all because we don’t feel ready, worthy or for another subconscious reason. Indeed, our real intentions are not always aligned with our spoken words, our superficial conscious thoughts or our actions.

Developing our spirit consciousness connection and our conscious awareness of the true intentions behind everything that we say or do will help us “feel” and better understand and control our deeper mental (subconscious) processes.

In QiMen, spirit consciousness is as simple as getting the proper alignment of Stars, Doors and Palaces.

The Soul’s Journey

The Soul’s Journey our spirit’s decision to embark on an exciting adventure. It is about experiencing the process of self‐realisation, manifestation, and most importantly, the incredible experience of forgetting your true divine nature to slowly reconnect to it and to the Source.

This journey normally unfolds over many lifetimes, incarnations and deaths. We can view or refer each incarnation as “Theme”. A limitless number of life experiences are offered to each soul on their own and unique path to the re‐discovery of their true nature and the nature of our multi‐dimensional universe.

Our soul is an energetic vehicle, another body, to which your spirit gives life, and through which it expresses itself and experiences life in the soul realm. A soul body seems to also be intimately connected to and affected by the two higher energy bodies: the higher emotional body and the higher mental body.

The “Home” of the soul body is the soul dimension, as it is made of the same energy, or rather the same range of vibration. It needs to be incarnated into a physical body to exist within the physical reality. This simply means that it needs to be energetically connected with, give life to and express itself through a physical body in order to experience the physical world and its specific properties.

Souls without a physical body that have crossed over to the soul dimension are however able to temporarily come into the astral world to connect with us. The astral dimension is indeed a world between the physical dimension and the soul dimension (in terms of vibration).

The soul was designed to enter the soul’s journey with restricted abilities and a limited access to its spirit’s knowledge. Over many lifetimes of learning, experiences and recording/ remembering, a soul progressively reconnects with different vibrations of energy to heal and develop its physical and energy bodies. Hence, from a BaZi perspective, we could try to unravel the main theme within the individual’s soul journey by locating or looking at the useful element(s).

Repressed Emotions

Most people will have experienced emotional traumas during their childhood and in their adult life. An emotional trauma is not always connected to what we would intellectually consider as a “traumatising event” or something out of the ordinary. However, this sometimes creates “Repressed Emotions”.

Emotions are just as valid whether or not the intellectual mind considers the related event as a “difficult situation”. In fact, there is a discrepancy between what we feel and what we think we should feel. And, this negativity often feeds or fuelled those “Repressed Emotions”.

When an emotional trauma has occurred, the emotional and mental energies associated with the events may be subconsciously kept away from the chakra system as a defence mechanism. This prevents the energies from going through the brain / nervous system, and therefore from being felt. This process also happens with “every day” emotions, often those emotions which are deemed unpleasant. In addition the mental repetition makes it worst or permanent.

“Repressed Emotions” induces repressing energies, this negative energies ends up creating clouds of stagnant emotional energies that often disrupt the flow of energy within other energy bodies, including the etheric body. This can lead to psychological and physical conditions, benign or more severe, as well as general imbalances, suffering and self‐limitations. Therefore, clearing these energies can often significantly improve the balance and health of one’s body and mind.

Most people also tend to repress those emotions that their intellectual mind consider as “bad” or “unnecessary”, such as anger, for example. Emotions are there for a reason and are a language inthemselves. Denying their existence is not going to make them disappear. On the contrary, it is important to allow ourselves to feel all emotions and to understand their significance.

In BaZi, if the chart with these “Broken Signs” / formation in the year and month pillars, or if there is these “Broken Signs” / formation in the luck cycle which happen to occurs in the childhood years; is likelihood to have such negative energies. To seek healing or release from these “Repressed Emotions”, the key is in the use of 6-Combination (六合) or 3-Combination (三合).

The Participatory Universe and Manifestation

The theory behind manifestation is beautifully explained by John Wheeler. Therefore, in-short and in layman words… We all have the ability to create our universe. And, we shouldn’t need to make use of deity or destiny chart to do Manifestation.

Wheeler’s hunch is that the universe is built like an enormous feedback loop, a loop in which we contribute to the ongoing creation of not just the present and the future but the past as well. 

Wheeler conjectures we are part of a universe that is a work in progress; we are tiny patches of the universe looking at itself — and building itself. It’s not only the future that is still undetermined but the past as well. And by peering back into time, even all the way back to the Big Bang, our present observations select one out of many possible quantum histories for the universe.
