The history of chinese numerology!
Chinese numerology is considered to be one of the earliest forms of numerology. The origins of Chinese numerology date back 4000 years ago.
A famous tale is that the first of the five mythical emperors of China, Wu of Hsai, was working on the banks of the Yellow River trying to find a method to prevent the floods.
It was during the course of this work that Wu found a tortoise shell, which at the time was considered to be a very good omen. This shell, however, was extremely rare, unique and special because it had fascinating markings on it: a magic 3x3 square.
- 'Lo Shu Grid':
- 4 9 2
- 3 5 7
- 8 1 6
This square later became known as the 'Lo Shu Grid'. The 'Lo Shu Grid' is particularly remarkable because every row, column and diagonal on the grid add up to the number '15'.
Chinese numerology is based on mystical traditions, including the I-Ching. The common premise is that certain numbers are associated with 'good' or 'bad'. The element that makes a number 'good' or 'bad' is the punning and word play possible in this many-tone language.
Over time chinese numerology evolved into three different systems that are being used today. There is the Western version of chinese numerology, the traditional chinese numerology and the Ki system.
