For Emperor Only

It amuses me that a few years back, a friend of mine had attended a Chinese Metaphysics course called Qi Men Dun Jia 奇门遁甲. Having paid about US$1500 and despite after spending 2 full days learning it from that Master and only manages to know how to plot the charts and that it is to pick a good direction to do important things such as looking for a doctor, going for a job interviews, etc. That friend have to pay another US$100 for the course book in English where I was given a copy to discuss with him as he was still unclear about some of the jargon and I had not thought highly of the book then. Later on, I had also came across a series of books written in English about this art also costing about 800 Euro dollars. At the moment, this secretive art is still being taught for about US$1000 at least by some Masters. If that friend of mine today happens to come onto this new book written by Calvin Yap, I guess he would be fuming mad as this book explained and teaches it more clearly that a beginner would have no problem understanding the concept. There are even several case studies to show how it works if you still don't get it end of the day.

Now I have put a link here for those of you interested as it is priced reasonably as you can see here. In the past in Feudal China, this art is to be used by the Emperor only and is not accessible to the common people. I was initially skeptical because the book was priced too low as there are no other books on this art apart from those written in Chinese. To my surprise, after reading it, the author had shared almost all that you can know about this art. The meaning of the chinese words 奇门遁甲 is Mysterious Door Hide Jia which is to protect leader(Jia) in one of the Eight Doors as probably in the past, it was mainly used for warfare and not meant for the common people. It was believed that Mao Zedong uses it to defeat the Kuomintang Army which has more soldiers and well-equipped and supported by the Western world who don't want to see a Communist country. For those of you who hates plotting chart, no worry, just copy the chinese words 奇门遁甲在线排盘系统 and google search and you will get a free software to help you plot it. You can then start having fun and testing it out on your career or romance and so forth. I do not want to spoil your fun by telling you more, so enjoy the book.

Taken from part of an article by Joey Yap about Qi Men Dun Jia:

'Now, if you are a Feng Shui enthusiast, you may have heard of Qi Men. You may even have heard that it has certain ‘occult’ elements to it, or that it is so powerful that it can enable a person to escape fate and destiny. Some books and Chinese Metaphysics teachers go so far as to claim that Qi Men can change matters of life and death. Some people even say that Qi Men is not a ‘legit’ field of Chinese Metaphysics because it can be used for illegal acts such as killing someone and getting away with it....'

Till-then, cheers. I will come back on Face readings another day.

Qi Men Dun Jia was used by a war strategist Chu Ke Liang in this part of the Warring States History of China in this movie.
