Qi Men Dun Jia Forecasting Methods- Wealth And Life Pursuit 5



門 Preface

甲 Any Chinese Metaphysics student, myself included, can tell you
預 how exasperating it is to find reliable sources for their studies. Even
測 more so when it comes to the highly sophisticated Qi Men Dun Jia

where information on it is too obscure and cryptic, which adds further
challenge for those in the English-speaking world. Learning Qi Men
takes a lot of patience and dedication. It is a very technical system
that requires you to fully digest its fundamental mechanisms in order to
learn the application methods. Clearly, not something you’ll be able to
comprehend in a short period of time.

In my journey studying Chinese Metaphysics over the past two


decades, I am fortunate enough to cross paths with respected Qi
Men masters and gain access to rare resources compared to most
students. Identifying the struggles other students faced gave me the
impetus to disseminate my own knowledge and experience to make
the information accessible to the masses and in turn, elevate the profile
of this study.

I’m sure you are now familiar with my Qi Men Dun Jia Reference Series,
a comprehensive collection of titles I have written addressing different
aspects of Qi Men Dun Jia. What you have in your hands now is the title
that deals with Qi Men in the Forecasting Methods context.

In ancient China, Qi Men was the secret weapon of war deployed by


Imperial strategists to overcome their adversaries. Today, the system
still applies - although not in the same sense as the olden days – to aptly
utilize for modern demands in terms of business, career, relationships,
travel, legal matters and even childbirth.

The conventional way of applying Qi Men to such ends requires the


user ample time and experience to achieve an adequate mastery. But
in today’s fast-paced world, people are more inclined towards speedy
solutions to remedy urgent problems. This led me to develop a one-
of-a-kind system that streamlines the complex process of Qi Men and
hands its powerful practice to students and practitioners of all levels,

6 Qi Men Dun Jia Forecasting Methods- Wealth And Life Pursuits



including the novice. My system sheds the irrelevant, without sacrificing 門
any accuracy, to present only the most essential information at your 遁
disposal. With this book, you merely need to flip to the correct page and 甲
tables to do a Qi Men forecast. 預

Qi Men can forecast a wide variety of circumstances and activities to

help its users gain insights in making important life decisions. Different
Qi Men Charts are plotted to forecast the outcome of matters such as
examination results, location of a missing person, or the outlook of a
particular industry or investment. When it comes to Qi Men Forecasting,
it is crucial to establish the correct Yong Shen 用神 or Useful God to
derive an accurate analysis. As each scenario in life is unique, it can
be very challenging, even for an experienced practitioner, to narrow
down the selection of a unique Yong Shen or ‘focal points’ for a specific
situation. The Forecasting Methods in this book have been condensed
to its most crucial parts and compiled into two volumes. I’ve accounted
for over a hundred unique forecasting scenarios presented in these
two titles, divided them into categories, with each Yong Shen laid out
in plain English according to its topic. The compilation of my notes and
preparation for these two books has taken up nearly eight months of
work. This is perhaps, the toughest book to write in the entire Qi Men
Dun Jia Reference Series.

Qi Men Dun Jia masters in ancient times are skilled at correctly selecting
the precise Yong Shen to perform the Qi Men forecast. This is hailed as
their ‘top secret’ knowledge that was only passed down to a select few
worthy enough to study under these masters. Most Qi Men masters
today are not willing to share this secret, let alone revealing all their
secrets in a book!

I have no reservations in sharing what I’ve learned with others. For


this book, I’ve based the selection of Yong Shen on my many years of
studies on the subject and after my own personal experience applying
this system. I have outlined my experience and findings for the benefit
of genuine students. Therefore, the information you find here are unique
and you probably won’t find similar techniques anywhere else. Since
I’ve compiled them into a simple format in this book, this will save you,
the reader, YEARS of trying to figure it out on your own.

Qi Men Dun Jia Forecasting Methods- Wealth And Life Pursuit 7



門 Though no “simplified” system can account for the full complexity of
遁 Qi Men, I hope this book will spur your curiosity and interest about
甲 this subject, at least enough the compel you to apply it yourself, and
預 ultimately lead you to learn more about Qi Men Dun Jia. If that’s the
測 case, you may want to consider formal Qi Men training at the Mastery

Academy, or one of my seminars or classes in the future. Feel free to
drop by my Facebook (www.facebook.com/JoeyYapFB) and let me
know of your interest in this subject. I always find great pleasure in
meeting my readers, and I look forward to meet you soon.

All the best in the beginnings of your Qi Men mastery!

8 Qi Men Dun Jia Forecasting Methods- Wealth And Life Pursuits



INTRODUCTION 門

Ancient emperors of China depended on the Chinese Metaphysical 甲
science of forecasting and warfare called Qi Men Dun Jia 奇門遁甲 to 預
win battles. Such practice has brought on a general assumption that Qi 測
Men Dun Jia is a divination system used to predict outcomes of events. 篇
In truth, Qi Men Dun Jia is far more sophisticated and versatile than it
seems.

The application of Qi Men Dun Jia can be classified into five areas,
namely:

1) Qi Men Forecasting
Qi Men utilizes various predictive techniques to forecast an array of
unique situations or actions. A Qi Men Chart will be plotted to gain
information (in the form of a Qi Map) on the outcome of events such
as the prospect of a job interview, business deal, career decisions,
marketing campaign, outcome of an action or a decision or perhaps,
something trivial like finding a lost item.

2) Qi Men Date, Time and Activity Selection


This Qi Men application involves the meticulous calculation for
the ‘golden moment’, that specific hour in a day combined with a
precise direction for a particular action, to seize the best outcome
for an important undertaking. In ancient times, war campaigns
are launched and implemented strategically using this application
method. In modern times, this Qi Men application is used for
marketing campaigns and product launches.

3) Qi Men Feng Shui


Property assessment can be conducted with a specific Qi Men Feng
Shui method to reveal if the residents are receiving the Qi required to
boost their potential for success in various areas of their life. Qi Men
Feng Shui allows the practitioner to ‘remote view’ the property to
anticipate problem areas and the incoming Qi source prior to visiting
the site.

4) Qi Men Destiny Analysis


A person’s date and time of birth is converted into a Qi Men Destiny
Chart. This Chart allows us to understand a person’s ‘Soul’ destiny.
Unlike other metaphysic systems like Purple Star Astrology or
BaZi Astrology, Qi Men Destiny Charts enables the practitioner
to understand the spiritual nature of a person; for instance, one’s
guardian angels, and other spiritual talents and abilities.

Qi Men Dun Jia Forecasting Methods- Wealth And Life Pursuit 9



門 5) Spiritual Qi Men: The Mind, Body and Soul Analysis

甲 The human mind, body and soul are seen as forms of energy or Qi,
預 which can be decoded to manifest change in life. Qi Men has the
測 ability to chart these energies in the form of a Qi Men Chart. This
篇 Chart allows us to understand the influence of the Mind (Universal
Energy) on one’s thoughts, and how one’s thoughts lead to actions
and ultimately to one’s reality. With this chart as a guide, practitioners
can master one’s mind and its powers (Universal Forces) with a
purpose to realise one’s goals in life.

This book focuses on the technique of “Qi Men Forecasting”. As this


subject itself covers a wide range of categories, this book addresses
the following areas of Qi Men Forecasting:

• General Life Outlook


• Wealth & Assets
• Career
• Academic Pursuits & Competition
• Traveling

Note: There is a second book on Qi Men Forecasting that addresses


People and Environmental Matters.

The Brief Origins of Qi Men Dun Jia

In case you’re new to this study, we’ll start with some basic background
on Qi Men Dun Jia before we move forward to the subject of Qi Men
Forecasting.

Qi Men Dun Jia existed over 3,000 years ago, and has been considered
as a cosmic game of chess around the chessboard known as a
“Qi Men Chart”. Deconstructing the name will reveal its meaning: the
word “Qi” 奇 refers to the mysterious, strange and unusual (as opposed
to the Chinese word for energy - Qi 氣), a reference to the universal
rules of the cosmos. “Men” 門 literally translates to mean “door” or
“gate”; “Dun” 遁 translates to “hide”, “escape to remain hidden”; while
“Jia” 甲 is a reference to the first of the ten Heavenly Stems. In military
application, “Jia” is the coded reference to the General or the Grand
Marshall. By combining these words together, it is transliterated as

10 Qi Men Dun Jia Forecasting Methods- Wealth And Life Pursuits



“Mysterious Doors Hiding the Jia”, which sounds far too complicated 門
and somewhat dense, obfuscating what it actually means. As such, 遁
it’s been reworded to the more succinct Mysterious Doors Escaping 甲
Technique. 預


So why is Qi Men Dun Jia compared to chess? If you are familiar with
chess, the goal is always to protect and advance the King. In Qi Men,
depending on your goal, the idea is to either hide the Jia or find it in
the Qi Men Chart. Jia; or in this case, would refer to the concept of a
Yong Shen 用神 (Useful God) in Qi Men Dun Jia.

Qi Men Dun Jia is part of the “Three Oracles” or the three highest
metaphysical arts in Chinese Metaphysics history, along with
Da Liu Ren 大六壬 and Tai Yi Shen Shu 太乙神數. Together, they make
up the legendary Three Oracle Methods 三式 of ancient China. These
methods were used by imperial astrologers of the imperial government
in ancient China to forecast outcomes in relation to aspects of time,
events, people and space – much like how computers today can
measure and calculate then forecast the weather and even the stock
market.

Among the Three Oracles, Qi Men Dun Jia is the only method that
remains highly practiced in the modern world today. This is because
it has an uncanny accuracy in forecasting events, offering valuable
insights for business tycoons or political leaders to make decisions on
a daily, or even, hourly basis.

Qi Men Dun Jia shares the same backbone as all other Chinese
Metaphysics disciplines. This means it is a system that shares
fundamental concepts like the Ba Gua attributes, the Five Elements, the
Heavenly Stems and Earthly Branches, the He Tu and Luo Shu, the Yin
and Yang, and so on. However, it is a much more sophisticated level
of Chinese Metaphysics. Ordinary systems of metaphysics address the
concept of the Trinity of Luck – Heaven, Earth and Man Luck. In Qi Men
Dun Jia, there is an additional layer called the Spirit Luck, where the
universal energy or ‘spirit realm’ layer is also taken into consideration.

Qi Men Dun Jia Forecasting Methods- Wealth And Life Pursuit 11



門 In ancient China, Qi Men Dun Jia was mainly used for warfare and
遁 military strategies. It was also applied by legendary Chinese military
甲 strategists like Jiang Zi Ya 姜子牙, Zhuge Liang 諸葛亮, Liu Bo Wen
預 劉伯溫, Zhang Liang 張良 and many others as a powerful system to
測 devise and execute military strategies and tactics to win wars or to rule

a country. It’s interesting to note that during ancient times, Qi Men Dun
Jia was considered an elite discipline of study, reserved only for the
Emperor and the aristocracy, and forbidden to the common people.
Thus, it was named “The Emperor’s Exclusive Imperial Knowledge”.

How is does Qi Men Dun Jia work?

Qi Men Dun Jia – or Qi Men, as commonly called by its students and


practitioners - uses a technique for calculating the Qi Map of a specific
moment in time and space. The traditional Qi Men method’s purpose
is to enable the practitioner to study the Qi Map and pinpoint a desired
or ideal moment in time in which one can embark on a specific action
to produce a very specific desired outcome. In the context of ancient
military warfare, for example, Qi Men was used primarily to identify the
right time and place to besiege or attack the enemy in order to ensure
absolute success. Wars, of course, were lost due to bad strategy, wrong
usage of people and geography and of course, timing, so this technique
proved to be particularly valuable to Chinese emperors.

There are a total of 1,080 Qi Men Maps we call “Qi Men Charts”. Each
chart has 8 Directions (represented by directions of a compass). Within
each sector, there are four components that describe the Heaven, Earth,
Man and even Spiritual influences over that area. In layman’s terms, this
means the time, space, events and spiritual influences over a matter.

While the Qi Men system was originally used as a forecasting tool for
war strategists to plan their attacks and defense, it was in later years,
slowly converted into a system of Forecasting (or divination of sorts).
It is applied to forecast or shed light onto events like forecasting the
weather, outcome of a marriage, competition, games, money related
decisions, career decisions, finding lost item, finding lost people,
cracking criminal cases and so forth. The modern day business tycoons

12 Qi Men Dun Jia Forecasting Methods- Wealth And Life Pursuits



in Hong Kong and Taiwan employ Qi Men masters to be their strategic 門
advisors by turning Qi Men into a business consulting and investment 遁
advisory tool. (The author is currently commissioned by some of Asia’s 甲
top tycoons as their Qi Men business strategist). 預


Unlike other metaphysical systems, Qi Men is a very versatile system.
In the Ming Dynasty, the Qi Men system has branched out to include
applications on Feng Shui and Destiny Analysis. The fundamentals
of Qi Men remain the same – whether it is applied as a Forecasting
tool or a Date Selection, Destiny Analysis or Feng Shui tool. Once you
have understood the fundamentals, you will find that the application
becomes easy.

I’ve made the Forecasting application simple in this book. You merely
need to familiarise yourself with some essential terms, understand its
concepts before you get started with a forecast. Then you can refer
to the relevant pages in this book to gain the forecast for your specific
situation or activity. Simple as that!

Qi Men Dun Jia – Forecasting

Qi Men is usually the preferred forecasting application used by many


metaphysic masters and practitioners to attain the final outcome of
a diverse variety of endeavours and events related to career, wealth,
health, relationships and environmental matters. It is a very versatile
technique that can zero-in into the prospect of a situation for a specific
reading. For instance, forecasting for wealth can go further into
pinpointing the outlook for investment and debt collection, to analysing
the potential outcome for borrowing or lending money. Such precision
in forecasting unique scenarios allow individuals to anticipate problems
and seek guidance for options in making better decisions in life.

You may be wondering by now, the difference between Qi Men


Forecasting and Yi Jing divination. Both seem similar on the outset, but
are worlds apart in many ways. The Yi Jing, or the Book of Changes,
forecasts the outcome of an event, and provides one end result, a
definite conclusion. It doesn’t normally suggest preferred any choices

Qi Men Dun Jia Forecasting Methods- Wealth And Life Pursuit 13



門 for an action a person can take to alter the outcome. On the other hand,
遁 Qi Men Forecasting opens up possibilities for the individual to consider.
甲 It gives people better optics to objectively analyse their situation and
預 opt for the best possible strategy to maneuver through issues, rather
測 than a rigid perspective to viewing it as a severe challenge. This makes
篇 Forecasting the primary tool of Qi Men Dun Jia, the sole reason why it
is the Number One strategy system people turns to for professional and
personal endeavours in modern times.

In addition, through a reading of the interaction of the 10 Stems


and the 9 Stars, 8 Doors and 8 Deities, a person’s career, academic
achievements, wealth capacity, health condition, and relationship life
can be read and analysed from the Qi Men chart.

Qi Men Forecasting is able to reveal eight (8) possible alternatives to


the outcome of a situation. This is because a Qi Men Chart has eight
(8) sectors, and each sector represents a different alternative that one
can choose to change the situation and ultimately, alter the end result.
In short, it’s a flexible system that gives result-oriented solutions for
anyone who is able to master it.

Qi Men Forecasting Concepts & How It Works

For Qi Men Forecasting, ninety percent (90%) of its analysis is based on


the Qi Men Hour Charts. Depending on the circumstances of performing
a forecast, few Qi Men masters would use the Day, Month and Year
Charts.

On a Qi Men Chart, there are references a user needs to study in order


to forecast. The first and important reference to determine is known as
the Useful God or Yong Shen 用神 in Qi Men terminology. This is usually
the most challenging part for a beginner student of Qi Men: identify the
Useful God – the reference or focus point - for a particular forecast. The
reasoning is that different situation calls upon a different Useful God.
Even with the same Hour on the same Chart, if the subject or situation
is different, the Useful God is different as well. Therefore, the outcome
will also vary. Needless to say, if the user misidentified the wrong Useful
God, it could lead to the wrong forecast.

14 Qi Men Dun Jia Forecasting Methods- Wealth And Life Pursuits



This book is written to help you identify the reference or focus 門
point in the easiest way possible. All you need to do is to 遁
determine which circumstances you are forecasting for, and turn 甲
to the right page to identify the focus point and read its forecast. 預

How to Determine the Focus Point of a Forecast

There are four components in a Qi Men Chart namely, the 10 Stems,


9 Stars, 8 Doors and 8 Deities. As mentioned earlier, for forecasting
method, you need to plot an Hour Chart based on the Hour of the reading.
From there, you need to study the interactions of these components in
the Chart, and identify the focus point, the fixed identification for the
specific forecast.

You can plot your own Hour Chart using the Joey Yap’s Qi Men
Dun Jia Ten Thousand Year Calendar. In addition, to speed up the
chart-plotting process, you can refer to the Qi Men Dun Jia 540 Yang
Structure Charts and the Qi Men Dun Jia 540 Yin Structure Charts
for the Hour Chart that has already been plotted for you.
