The Qimen Method: Qimen Destiny and Career Challenges

Recently I did a number of Qi Men consults and there was one that really caught my eye because although people can tell you that they go through a lot of work challenges, the moment I looked at her chart I was kind of thrown off. It was a 7 Star Ferocious White Tiger Formation (near death but not dead) also with a White Tiger deity in her Qimen Career palace. The first thing I said was wow, your enemies are really vicious – the powerful kind that would go out of their way to kill off her career. Unfortunately she’s also a Gui day master with a Cascading Cloud this year. She just casually nodded.

The thing about charts is that, you can actually use it both ways – meaning you can choose to be the Ferocious White Tiger first. But this is where a consultant comes in, I need to identify which side (the light or the dark) was she on at the moment. I looked at her chart, I looked at her, a person who doesn’t even like to be involved in politics to begin with but is constantly dragged into it.

If that is not bad enough, her Career palace produces her Karmic palace – the lessons you need to learn in this lifetime – which I won’t divulge everything but there was Destructor and Red Phoenix Dive Into River formation which means each time someone uses her as a scapegoat or takes her down (can also mean some were her own lapse of judgement and unwillingness to yield) she will get so upset that she leaves. She will let go and demolish everything she has built in her career and just leave – which is the lesson she’s supposed to learn or life will make her keep rebooting her career again and again until she learns this – How NOT to leave every time someone pisses you off. I realize people do these a lot these days (but I was also guilty of it once upon a time) – You’re not going to be in a perfect career all the time and there are things you will need to fix, FIX it instead of giving up so easily. At the very least, pause before you react.

Thankfully, we’re in metaphysics and there are multiple ways we can do this – you can either tweak your Feng Shui to increase your own energy level or the best tool ever in these situations – Qimen. There are a number of formations you can actually use for self defense – which is either taught in class or shared in consultations when we see fit – the one that I share the most apart from the Double Deception is also a huge upgrade of your own perception of the word ‘Problems’ – use your Chief/9 Heavens/Moon to learn how to embrace problems. Now that you know Qimen, go AROUND it, not run away or head butt it further. Embrace, Learn, Grow, Control. If you run from your lessons, your lessons will run after you again and again.

And in her case, it’s her Karmic lesson. You can’t keep quitting no matter how bad it gets, and it can get really bad. But looking back, is it worth it? Is losing everything you’ve built throughout your years of blood and sweat worth it? If your answer is no, fight the hell back ♥

The Qimen Method: Read Anyone Under 2 Seconds

I’ve forgotten all about this old theory that Dato had taught many years back. He said in case you were in an unfamiliar social setting, or in a meeting, or even amongst friends or colleagues, someone you met for the first time, you could actually plot out that hour’s Qimen chart to understand their personalities and intentions without even needing their birthdays or stare at their faces or pull out a deck of cards.

So happened my group chats were sending pictures of those out during the eclipse and my cheeky side wanted to jokingly tease whoever was sitting on the worst sector on the worst day of the year. So I plotted the chart and suddenly this technique came into mind after noticing a pattern. I was so amazed by the accuracy that I just had to share.

I’m just going to use a random photo here to demonstrate, so happen to have the right amount of people fit into one chart. From your naked eye, note their seating or standing arrangements and just mentally label them this way:


I tilted the chart to face the correct direction these people were facing. So you do need to know your orientation.

Note: If you don’t have 7 or 8 people, roughly gauge their direction from you. If you have more than 7 or 8, share the box but split the upper and lower stems.

Once you’ve identified the box, you can start reading them. This is actually quite a neat party trick.

Person 1 : Moon Pillar Harm Gui Yi

Moon+Harm = Hunting for information through conversation (Pillar) but there is a 6 crescent punishment (Gui in Xun) which may mean the person may have accidentally overshared instead of hunting, which will work against him/her. In terms of personality, an incredibly knowledgeable person but hard to get to know on a personal level. Their personal life is well hidden. Impatient, likes things done their way and loves to talk. Growth is an important factor in their life.

Person 2 : Snake Heart Delusion Ding Xin DE

This person looks like s/he didn’t want to go (DE) or s/he is almost wanting to leave to go somewhere else (hexagram), but they have 1 very specific reason for sitting here, like they had 1 particular motive (Snake + Heart). In terms of personality, This person so happens to also be a Surging Snake hence fitting the chart and own personality, has one expertise that they have mastered but at the moment being very over shadowed or unnoticed (delusion). They have tried a lot of different methods but at the moment still not working out.

Person 3: Chief Grass Scenery Geng Yi/Bing DE/HS (Nullified)

This person has the most authority (Chief) amongst everyone else in the room. They also happen to be the most good looking (Scenery) and had big plans, some are working out some are not because there were saboteurs involved (Great White In Darkness structure) and at one point was at a loss (Small structure). Personality wise, this person is the most giving, pure and big hearted, already mentioned good looking but has their own rash way of doing things, which was what attracted the haters/opposition. But in the end, goodness wins, yay (hexagram).

Person 4: 9 Heavens Ambassador Death Ren Gui

This box, is not a very nice box. It shows that this person has the most headache at the moment (Ren+Gui) either because a financial plan or a high level management plan gone wrong (Ambassador+Death). The good news is that all it needs is a brand new vision, new perspective and to follow their gut/intuition to solve it (9 Heavens + Death + hexagram). Personality wise, this person’s views in life are always 3 steps ahead of their peers. S/He had to go through a few painful downfalls but each time it happens they climb higher and higher. They only need to learn to take charge of their unhealthy thought pattern. That’s the only thing in their way.

Person 5: 9 Earth Destructor Fear Ding Wu

This was the worst box in this hour, as highlighted in our FSA events. NW on Eclipse day. So this person would be in the lowest point at the moment, most likely due to financial worries (Earth + Destructor + Fear + Wu + hexagram), at least something of big value went very wrong. Luck is also not really on their side (Ding in Qian). In terms of personality, this is still a very nice person with a fierce or fixed way of doing things. They also do not have the patience to wait for the result of their work and constantly does too many different things and end up achieving nothing. This causes them financial worries.

Person 6: Black Tortoise Assistant Open Yi Geng

Obviously this would be the most cunning one with a politician mindset (Tortoise + Yi + Geng). Shamelessly uses their charms, underhanded tactics and flip flop their personality to get people to give them whatever they want, especially in work related matters (Open). Their modus operandi is by blindsiding everyone with fake knowledge (Assistant with Tortoise). Their true intention is to open up their own branding/travel opportunities and eliminate all other competitors (Dragon Force formation) by using other people (Geng -Yi). In terms of personality, they super charming, do have a great affinity with knowledge but the issue is it ends up misused. They have no problem cooking up fake information and at the moment people believe them and willingly gives them anything without having to ask. The good thing is that this will eventually bring them big trouble (Geng + Hexagram in Kan) and in the end not get what they want.

Special Note: You might ask, Assistant with Tortoise can also mean a very influential and knowledgeable speaker, it is traditionally a rogue teacher (in Malay we call this ‘ajaran sesat’) but in this case we differentiate by looking at the stem, which are negative and the formation is equally cunning, so this person will tilt to the negative and not the positive.

Person 7: White Tiger Hero Rest Xin Ren

Of everyone on the table, this person is likely the most relaxed one. Possibly they were enjoying the company and found this meeting rejuvenating. There is also a lot of things to be done that are not yet done (hexagram) so this Tiger better get moving. In terms of personality, this person loves to dress up and look good, most likely also very skilled in speech (Xin) and whenever they speak they really look good (Hero). Personality wise this person has a lot of energy, most likely loves sports activities and is resilient to most hardship. They have a vision and also a powerful persona that makes people listen to them but may have a small issue with clarity.

Technically I have just deciphered an entire chart to you. And I do this by truly understanding the individual components (Qimen Destiny/Forecasting) as well as the structure (Qimen Strategic Execution). From this one chart alone, you will manage to map out anyone’s personalities and sometimes you just want to know who are helpful? Who are not? Who is sincere? Who are not? In fact from this chart you can also foretell which person will not get along with which person. This will be very useful if you’re stuck in an unstable/complex environment or you’re not even sure who to trust – and not really for anyone to pry into any other people’s businesses. Because it’s really not that fun to know too much in the first place. Theoretically it’s really good for technical practice but in the real world, you should just let it go and let things be. Let evil eradicate itself.

Only advanced student could read it as detailed as I did, so if you’re not, don’t fret. The Deity alone is enough to tell you what you need to know. A Tortoise is a Tortoise. A Chief is a Chief. Next time just match it with the Door. Then the Star and the stems. Feel like learning Qimen yet? 🙂

Qimen Destiny Chart for Strategic Execution?

Mind Your Qi is officially 1 year old today. Thank you so much for all your support and for sharing this journey with me, it has been such a pleasure so here’s a Qimen write up for everyone ♥

You will face your greatest opposition when you are closest to your biggest miracle... (2).png

I share a lot on Qimen Strategic Execution because I’m also very heavy on application. Knowing and identifying flaws or weaknesses, be it Bazi or Qimen, is only the first step. Pointing out for flaws in buildings using Qimen Feng Shui is also only a first step. The most important part in metaphysics is its application – what can I actually DO about this now that I know about it? Knowing is not enough.

In my recent video I taught you how to identify the best sectors in a Qimen chart as well as how to manifest. Subsequently a few people did ask that if they don’t have the hour/day/month chart, how can they do this?

Because today is a special day, I’m going to let you in on a little secret…. use your own Qimen Destiny Chart 🙂

But of course this method is only limited to what you have and you do need to know the structures and formations you can leverage on in any chart which will be covered extensively in this weekend’s Qimen FS and SE classes.

Whenever I look at someone’s Qimen Destiny chart I always pick 3 things:

  1. Destiny: Your destiny palace
  2. Strength: Your non-destiny 7 star (if you’re a 7 star then the 6 star)
  3. Usability: The nicest structure in your chart (you may have more than 1 or overlap with one of those above)


Only in Qimen Destiny I personally do not care about the Destiny level/star as much as the person’s mentality and belief system (and no you do not need religion). It only shows what you’re born with and throughout life you can ‘level up’ on your own – meditation, qigong, martial arts, energy work, fitness training, so on and so forth. A 1 star Chief who constantly level up is better than a 7 star Chief who does nothing. But of course a level 1 Chief has more work to do to catch up to the level 7, but in time will surpass it. Get my point?

Furthermore, if you noticed by now, almost all 7 star Destiny do not use their Deity. Like a ‘I know I have it but I don’t want to use it’ kinda thing. It suddenly becomes like a 100% profile in your Bazi – unless you have a DE. Why? I don’t know? If you’re a 7 star Moon and you have all the knowledge in the world, why don’t you apply it on yourself? So it goes back to what I look at, mentality and readiness. So I’d pick the next one – 6 star.

The first 2 are easier to identify. But when you’re looking at Usability, this is where you need to pick up Strategic Execution in order to understand the formations and structures together with it’s meaning. A 3-4 star ‘Bird Fly Into Cave’ 9 Heavens may be way more usable than a normal 6 star Destiny 9 Heavens. There are so many formations in a Qimen chart – depending what you want to use it for but now we just want to see which ones you already have. Remember – I state here as Usability and not the person’s characteristics and personality. You will always behave like your Destiny palace which we will refer back at the Qimen Destiny theory taught at the end of the year.

So once you’ve identified this you can use them whenever you want – because these energies are always with you. Getting what you want from whatever you have, right? But if you need more, then do join us at our best selling Qimen Mastery classes this weekend (or at the end of the year). You seriously won’t want to miss it 🙂

Death And Emptiness in Qimen

I realised a lot of people still ask me about this, most of them who didn’t attend Day 0 of Qimen Academy Live where I addressed this on stage.

Death and Emptiness (DE) in a Qimen Chart will look like this:

Screen Shot 2019-04-04 at 11.45.08 AM.png

or this depending which chart you use:

Screen Shot 2019-04-04 at 11.50.08 AM.png

See that little DE written at the side of the orange bar?

Death and Emptiness is used a bit differently in Bazi and Qimen but it still carries the same connotation, that is it is a spiritual pillar.

In Qimen Forecasting it always means “not yet” or it can sometimes mean something you can do but already decided not to do. For example I got a DE when I was asking about a new (day) job offer that I got which was tremendously good. I already got the papers waiting for my signature but it was in DE. Meant that I chose to forego it because I wanted to give more time to my metaphysics endeavors. But if you’re asking about the timeline of an outcome you need to wait for the DE to be “filled” which means the month when the DE palace is filled (same palace) or clashed (opposite palace) whichever is faster. Horse Star (HS) in the same place nullifies the DE – If you don’t get this concept ignore it for now 🙂

Screen Shot 2019-04-04 at 4.55.36 PM.png

Now you’re going to ask me how to look at the months:

  • North: Rat: December
  • NorthEast: Ox/Tiger : January/February
  • East: Rabbit: March
  • SouthEast: Dragon/Snake: April/May
  • South: Horse: June
  • SouthWest: Goat/Monkey: July/August
  • West: Rooster: September
  • NorthWest: Dog/Pig: October/November

In Qimen Strategic Execution, you use any Deity even with a DE because anything in the Universe realm is not affected by DE. However all the other components are not very effective, half effective, so to speak but personally I will choose to not use them. Just pick another date.

In Qimen Feng Shui, only if you’re using the hour chart and not the proper Qimen FS chart, it could possibly be a missing sector or something in that area that is incomplete at that point in time.

In Qimen Destiny, Death and Emptiness in your Destiny Palace (like the second chart above) means you are a spiritual person. The best news is that you access your Deities way faster no matter the level. You soul search all the time, you want purpose, you search for some sort of meaning other than material or financial gain. You’re certainly not driven by worldly pleasures.

This is why DE is seen as unfavorable in the ancient days where Wealth, Power, Domination, Colonization, Fame, Ego is the core life and measure of success (still is isn’t it?). Having someone who keeps pondering about the true meaning of it all, meditate about the source of all being, spend most time deciphering messages of the Universe is not something seen as profitable nor practical.

This is not to say a person with DE will not find wealth, power and prestige. In fact a lot of them do but the right example would be that if someone ever tried to buy you over with one of these, if it’s not something you believe or find meaning in, your answer is a thank you but no. Your measure of fulfillment will be somewhat different. Ever wondered how powerful and free a person is when they make money yet are not governed by money?

Those whose DE is in your Chief, 9 Heavens, 9 Earth or Grappling Hook even if it’s not in your Destiny palace are most likely to have precognitive abilities.
