Most of us are naturally inclined to think that the subjects of Feng Shui and Qi Men Dun Jia are used to help people to overcome challenges in life. Yes, in fact during ancient time, Feng Shui was regarded as a powerful tool to rescue people from poverty (救贫术). Likewise, Qi Men Dun Jia has also been used to assist the emperor to foretell the country luck and as a defence solution against any outside threats.
But, has it ever crossed your mind that while Qi Men has widely been regarded as a sophisticated art of war system to maintain and uphold peace and prosperity, it actually has a little-known dark side of having the ability to ruin one’s life?
Yes, you didn’t read wrongly. Qi Men Dun Jia can be a double-edged sword. It can heal – and kill too. Hence, I always make it a point during the start of my Qi Men class to stress to my participants to use this divine knowledge wisely and ethically.
“Do Not Ever be Seduced by the Dark Force.”
What is this Dark Force?
First, let me sum up the use of Qi Men Dun Jia in the next few sentences. Qi refers to the 3 auspicious stems namely, Yi wood, Bing fire and Ding fire. Men means door and it actually talks about the 8 Doors (or the 8 main directions in a compass) with Open, Rest and Grow doors being the top 3 auspicious doors. So, in any hour, if an auspicious stem co-exists with an auspicious door in a specific direction (or palace in a Qi Men chart), technically we say that the Qi Men have arrived. We will therefore use this auspicious direction to “attack-our-enemy”. This was how Zhu Ge Liang in Red Cliff did to win the battle against Cao Cao.
Usually, most older masters only teach the “wholesome and politically correct” application. I would think it is okay to share and offer some insights into this rarely explored subject.
What conjures up the darker and enigmatic side of Qi Men is the use of Geng metal – coupled with the less desirable doors like Hurt Door, Death Door, Fear Door and Stop Door. During the third day of my Qi Men class, I would normally decode the classical Qi Men poem known as “Xun Xing Tai Bai Zhi Shu” or I just simply call it “The Evil Book of Geng”.
Ample warnings were given out to students before I started to explain it at great length for if you wish to deploy the use of the dark force in Qi Men, be ready for the immediate Karma. Then, you ask me why should I be imparting such risky stuff to my Qi Men practitioners-in-making? Reason being, within the yin, there is always the yang. For instance, Geng + Jia with Death door is the formula to kill. The author even guarantees that you would never need to exceed 4 attempts. But on the more humane side, Geng + Wu can save a dying man on the street. I liken this to the use of illegal drug for necessary medicinal purpose. So, let’s suss out the more desirable and effective uses of the dark force for good.
On the other hand, by acquiring the knowledge on the modus operandi of the dark side of Qi Men, we will learn to be more cognizant of our behavior and intent during the application of Qi Men Dun Jia. It helps us to toe the line and be constantly reminded that Karma is at work.
Some of the “dark applications” of Qi Men being documented are for example:
- Using Geng to force a woman to sleep with you
- Using Stop door to cause your enemy to be sick
- Using Fear door to backstab your enemy
Some of the positive “dark applications” are for example:
- Using Geng to gain upper hand when confronted by big bully
- Using Geng / Ding to manage a stubborn child
- Using Geng to suppress ghost
Above examples are not exhaustive. I just want to remind all my past Qi Men Dun Jia graduates once again to use this great divine tool with a righteous heart.
With this, I would like to say, may the good Qi and Men always be with you.
