This is my 600th article.  It takes me 20 years to reach this milestone.  Hopefully you will see my 1200th article in 20 years.suicide

To mark this occasion, I have spent extra time and effort to write this suicide prevention article.  It can also predict the likely year, month, day or hour when one dies.

This method was derived from a acupuncture classic “Encyclopedia of Acupuncture 针灸大成 written by a TCM doctor Yang Ji Zhou (杨继洲)  in Ming Dynasty (1368- 1644).  The method was developed based on his clinical and Yi-jing studies.

This method was integrated into the Medicine Buddha sect by renaming the 12 animals signs employed with the 12 Medicine Buddha Guardian Generals.

This method matches one’s Chinese birth animal sign to a certain birth hour.  This person would likely commit suicide if his/ her birth hour matches that hour.   Check the table below:predict_suicide

For example, if you were born in 1984 Year of Rat and the birth hour is 18:00 rooster or you hour.  You are suicide prone.  The likely hour of suicide or serious misfortune is either rooster or you hour (17-19:00) or rabbit or mao hour (5- 7:00).  The likely month and day to happen will be rooster (you) or rabbit (mao) month/ day.   The month and day are in Chinese solar calendar.  You can use to find out the exact animal signs of your birthday, month and hour.   You may also use this link to convert your date to Chinese solar calendar with animal signs:

For your convenience, here is the birth year and animal sign table.  Please be aware that birthdays before February 3 are considered as previous year.


“Ken, using the previous rat sign person example, how about if this person was NOT born in that suicide prone hour?”

The rooster (you) and rabbit (mao) years, months, days and hours are likely his time of departing this earth and time to avoid for major activities and decisions.  In other words, these are his unfavorable timings.

Here is a real life example.  Hong Kong movie star and singer Leslie Cheng had committed suicide by jumping from a hotel in April 1, 2003 at 18:41 (rabbit month, rooster hour).  He was born in 1956 (Monkey Year) in a rabbit hour– suicide prone hour.  He had passed in a rooster hour and rabbit month (matching the table above). 


You may check the birth animal and hour of yourself, your love ones and friends to see if they were born in a suicide prone hour.  There are only two possibilities:

1. Matching the suicide prone hour:  you may want to advise this person and people around him/ her to avoid putting too much pressure or unrealistic expectations on this person.  Tell him or her to relax and take it easy, especially during the unfavorable hours (and day) listed in the table above.  This is especially relevant for parents who put too much pressure on their children for academic success.

2. Does not match the suicide prone hour:  The hours listed in the table are the less favorable time or inauspicious (also in terms of month and day).  People should avoid using those timing to make major decisions or taking risks.

This is my latest video correspondence course with 32 hours of HD video.  It helps people to make decisions and problem-solving under any conditions– whether it is well-structured, fuzzy or ambiguous and with or without input from the sources.  This course may turn you into a psychic even if you have no psychic ability.

This course is part of the “Destiny and Luck Management” (DLM) series which aims at applying Chinese metaphysics into real life situations.  It may work in conjunction with the “Bazi Therapy and Enhancement” courses or work alone by itself.

Unlike the DLM- Bazi enhancement  courses, this course does not have any special prerequisite to enter and is “idiot-proof“– you are guaranteed to use this course within 5 minutes if you can read and flip a book.  However, if you want to take advantage of all the “bells and whistles” of this course, you need to study it (especially the case studies) for 2 to 4 weeks.

This course comes with over 32 hours of compressed video (professional version).  All videos are menu-driven (on Windows-based PC) and interactive  (see below for  DVD menu screens).  Extensive references materials and cheat sheets are provided for rapid learning/ operation.

It will take at least 10 days if this course is taught in live seminar and costs US$5000 in tuition alone. It is also impossible to cover 200 case studies in a live seminar too.


This is probably the most practical Chinese Metaphysics course that you can apply in your daily life.  It provides guidance and decision-making advice for you, especially when you are at a critical or helpless situation.

This course does not intend to make major changes in your destiny but rather to make your destiny more manageable by making gradual small changes in your life. Small changes are easier to make than drastically changing your fate.  But enough “small changes” can affect major changes gradually.

Two other courses of this series– “Bazi Therapy and Enhancements” work on your 4-Pillars and Feng Shui levels to change destiny.  You need birth data to do it.  The beauty of this course is that it works on results from the Destiny Forecasting Method with or without input from the parties involved.  You can indeed generate rich info from the universe out of nothing as if you have a direct line to God.  This is the closest alternative for one working like a psychic but without the actual psychic ability.

This course contains two sections.  The first section is on how to make predictions based on your questions. This means learning how to operate the Destiny Forecasting Method.  The second part is the case studies sections.  Many techniques are difficult to teach except through case studies like studying legal cases in law schools.

SYSTEMATIC CASE STUDIES (in both Professional and standard versions):  There are about 100 “systematic” case studies which are easy to learn and apply in real life situations.  It starts from simple predictions to complicated ones which integrate time, space, personal characteristics and simple Feng Shui.

ADVANCED CASE STUDIES (in Professional version only):  There are another 100 case studies taken from the files of several masters.  These case studies utilize a variety of methods and techniques to extract rich contextual information from virtually nothing or even with no input from the targets.

The followings are some of the applications of the “Destiny Forecasting Method“:

  • Do you want to know your current courtship will lead to?
  • Do you want to know the auspiciousness of the house that you are going to buy?
  • Do you want to know your partner is helpful to you (your “nobleman”)?
  • Do you want to know why your business suddenly drops?
  • Do you want to know if you should invest on this business venture?
  • Do you want to know if you can collect your debt from your debtors?
  • Do you want to know if the coming trip is good for you?
  • Do you want to know if your current Feng Shui affects your luck?
  • Will you or your son do well in that important exam or interview?
  • Where will you find your helpful people?
  • What type of business should you do?
  • What will be the result of your legal lawsuit?
  • What is your competition strategy towards you?

After you have found out the answer, you will be able to:

  • Reduce the negative effects or prevent event from happening if  the predicted outcome is negative
  • Enhance the auspiciousness of the event if the predicted outcome is positive
  • Speed-up the occurrence of the event if the predicted outcome is positive
  • Best of all, you do not need input from other party to use Destiny Forecasting Method. No birth data is needed.

This course will show you a simple method to answer your “want to know” questions and show you how to enhance the effects of an event, reduce the effects of an event and prevent or delay the occurrence of an event.  It does NOT mean to change your destiny, but makes your destiny more predictable and manageable.  It is especially useful when you are at the crossroad of life by providing temporary relief” or “breathing time“.

NOTE:  Some of the cures and remedies in this course are temporary or “emergency assistance” that may last a few weeks to months only.
