The App "Plum Blossom Divination" is an essential useful, a "must have" professional tool for Professionals, but also useful for the beginners.
Plum Blossom Divination, or Mei Hua Yi Shu 梅花易數, is an ancient Chinese calculation Method based on the Yi Jing 易經.
Shao Kang Jie 邵康節, who was also known as Shao Yong 邵雍, discovered Plum Blossom (Mei Hua Yi Shu) Divination during the Song Dynasty.
The Plum Blossom methods do not require the use of coins, yarrow stalks, dice, tortoise shells, or any other object as a tool to derive a Gua. Instead, the use the mind, images, and numbers.
Sometimes when you think of a distant friend for no reason, then the telephone rings and you are just surprised to find that this distant friend is calling.
Many things are taken as omens: anything out of the ordinary, no matter how small; something or someone coming from a certain direction, birds fighting, a girl falling out of a tree, a strange expression on someone’s face, or the Time and Date. These are all the things that can be translated into Gua and analyzed.
The ancient Chinese believed that the Cosmos is a big Tai Ji while every other thing is a small Tai Ji. Different Tai Ji may or may not be in phase. Those that are in phase may resound with each other.
That is why some seemingly random and unrelated things can happen at almost the same time. Modern scientists call this Synchronicity.
There are two ways the Universe uses to send a message to us. One is to let us know something before it happens. It is sent by letting our attention be drawn to some strange events or phenomena.
The other is to reply to our inquiry. Some diviners can interpret the message by intuition. This requires special blessing from Heaven to have such ability. For most people, a systematic method can be used.
