QIMEN: I AM… THE BLACK TORTOISE

Students of the JY Mastery Academy would be familiar of the depiction of the Black Tortoise as Darth Vader from the Star Wars trilogy. I’ve often wondered why. I watched Star Wars so many decades ago, I can no longer remember Darth Vader’s super power. All I remember is weird and hollow breathing!

In general, the Black Tortoise is likened to a magician. For those of you who are familiar with the Dragonlance Chronicles, this deity reminds me of the mage, Raistlin (or to be more contemporary, perhaps Loki is better). It is unconventional. It is the most intuitive of the 10. And, it is the master of illusions.

Before We Go Any Further, I Am Talking About Your Subconscious

For the benefit of those who may not have been exposed to QMDJ, allow me a couple of sentences to explain. Qi Men Dun Jia is the Art of War. It is a tool designed for strategy and tactics (forecasting and execution). However, there is a spiritual side to Qi Men Dun Jia which believes that we are, each of us, naturally connected to one of ten universal energies.

The ten QMDJ deities are basically ten different manifestations of the universal energy. They are neither demons nor angels. Like all energy forms, they are neutral. Think of your personal deity as your subconscious. It is yours to command. It doesn’t rule you.

The Gifts Of The Black Tortoise: The Power of Persuasion

Black Tortoise individuals tend to be very adaptable, extremely intelligent, and very good at hiding that intelligence from the world. There is always a chameleon-like sense of fluidity about the Black Tortoise personality. In essence, your personality can change depending on who you hang out with. You become who you need to be, in that moment in time. With that in mind, for heaven’s sake, don’t hang out with addicts!

In this, the Black Tortoise and the Red Phoenix individuals share the same trait – the ability to adopt other people’s vernacular and vocabular. You are able to change your vocal tones, sentence structures, syntax and semantics to mirror the person you are talking to.

But before you label this skill as bad, most Black Tortoise and Red Phoenix individuals do not mirror with bad intentions. This is a skill that comes automatically and stems from a desire to enhance understanding. If you ‘speak’ their language, it will be easier to reach an accord.

And because of this, your ability to persuade and influence increases exponentially.

Additionally, the Black Tortoise also comes with the gift of empathy. Black Tortoise individuals can easily pick up non-verbal cues beyond the words that are pouring into your ears. You can sense feelings, emotions, and thoughts. It is very common for a strong Black Tortoise to provide the answer to a yet-unspoken question.

The Weaknesses of the Black Tortoise: Hello Schizo?

The world can be a very noisy place for a strong and connected Black Tortoise. Being the empath that you are, there is always a danger of absorbing too much and therefore, easily affected by other people. Try walking down the corridor of an airport. You feel simultaneously – excitement, anxiety, anticipation, boredom, and many more – all external of you.

Does this sound a little schizo? Maybe… but please do not slap a schizophrenia label on all Black Tortoise individuals. They are empaths. They can pick up on emotions and energy levels. But they’re not delusional!

The only way around this weakness is to mentally create an ‘off’ switch. This is a skill that needs to be practiced. For example, tell yourself – when I pull on my earlobes (just an example), I will stop picking up on these external cues.

How To Awaken Your Black Tortoise Powers?

First – programme yourself. As I’ve said before, the control of all the Qimen Deities require positive thinking. Because, again, they are neutral. They are neither good nor bad. They just are. If your thoughts and emotions are constantly negative, that becomes your reality. When you succeed in changing your thought patterns and get on the upward spiral, that too becomes your reality.

This requires practice. Because it is easier and more convenient to be negative than positive. Changing ourselves is how we change our destiny. And nobody ever said it was easy.

A great way to use the Black Tortoise powers is to have some knowledge or training in NLP. At the very minimum, get interested in learning body language skills. Not only will this help you with your own programming, but will also give you a deeper understanding of human behaviour.

Tongue Firmly In Cheek…

What happens if your Black Tortoise gets out of control? Oops…

QIMEN: I AM… THE RED PHOENIX

The Red Phoenix, the Qi Men Dun Jia, is literally the power of speech in all its forms. It’s the potency of self-expression and because of that, governs anything related to speech. On the positive spectrum, it symbolizes the arts, the spoken and written word, civilization itself, information, and intellectual property. On the flip side, it can also represent the negative side of words – arguments, rumours, and disagreements.

In a nutshell, when you have the Red Phoenix in your subconscious, your words have power!

The Gifts Of The Red Phoenix: When Words Have Power

I’m sure you’re figured out by now that communications would be the primary skill for anyone with the Red Phoenix in their Destiny Palace. Animated, very persuasive and supremely articulate, the Red Phoenix individual has the capacity to influence others with nothing more than words.

Somehow, an individual with the Red Phoenix will always know the right words to use to the right person under the right circumstances. Your success lies in this key factor. Yours is the latent power to mesmerize, inspire, enthrall, charm and influence others to do your bidding.

You can use this gift to either spread hope or hate – it’s really up to you. As I’ve said earlier, the energy vibration is neutral. In the ancient days, people with strong Red Phoenix powers are typically the ones who are tasked with either articulating blessings or hurling curses. True fact!

The Weaknesses of the Red Phoenix: The Foot-In-Mouth Syndrome

Trouble comes when your mouth rules your brain instead of vice versa. Red Phoenix individuals tend to be a bit of a babble-mouth, frequently speaking out of turn and ending up in hot soup.

When this power is uncontrolled, the argumentative side of you surfaces. That sharp tongue of yours can easily sever the strongest bridges, especially when you get riled up.

How To Awaken Your Red Phoenix Powers?

Understand that words have power. Internalize it. Deepen your knowledge about languages. Have an intimate understanding of syntax and semantics. They matter!

Learn to speak from your core – your diaphragm. Most of us tend to be shallow breathers and we speak from our throats. When you learn to breathe into your diaphragm and speak with the voice of your diaphragm, that is your true voice of authority and power. 

And most of all, or perhaps easiest of all, change the way you speak to yourself and others. If you are someone who tends to talk in a negative parlance, then guess what… all those negative things you say come into actualization. So stop saying problems, call them opportunities instead. Stop saying ‘I can’t’, change it to ‘I will’.

Easier said than done? I agree – it takes practice. But just consider the ramifications – change your words, change your life!

Tongue Firmly In Cheek…

What happens if your Red Phoenix gets out of control? Oops… (I’m not condoning violence in any way, OK? Just that this was a very Red Phoenix moment).

QIMEN: I AM… THE SURGING SNAKE

While the White Tiger is one of the easiest Qimen Deities to connect with, the Surging Snake – the Master of the Environment – is one of the more straightforward powers for Qimen newcomers to use. Because its effect is almost immediate. Want parking? Find parking! The problem is, for most people, their use of the Surging Snake powers does not expand beyond that simplistic usage. In other words, your Surging Snake may be trained only at the ‘find parking’ level.

For the benefit of those who may not have been exposed to QMDJ, allow me a couple of sentences to explain. Qi Men Dun Jia is the Art of War. It is a tool designed for strategy and tactics (forecasting and execution).

The Gifts Of The Surging Snake: The Gift of Observation

Also known as the God of Fire or the God of Deception, the Surging Snake also has a rather bad reputation. In Qimen forecasting, the presence of the Surging Snake indicates lies, misdirection and deceit.

But in the context of a Qimen destiny reading however, people born with the Surging Snake as their Guardian of Destiny are gifted with very strong survival instincts. The Surging Snake works by detecting anomalies in the energy field. It’s especially effective at detecting changes in energy vibrations. Because of this, people with strong Surging Snake connections are often gifted with sharp insight into what makes people tick.

Meet someone for the first time, and you will immediately figure out the energy pattern of the person. This process is so automatic that you probably don’t even know you are doing it. But once aware, you can use the power of the Surging Snake to enlighten. You can also use its powers to effect a change of emotions in the people near you.

This makes the Surging Snake a master at marketing to the masses. Just by radiating joy, you can influence others to feel the same. And vice versa, if you radiate fear, then Fear Marketing may be your natural selling style. By the way, Fear Marketing is something that the Surging Snake excels in – by triggering the survival instinct of everyone around you.

The Weaknesses of the Surging Snake: The Master of Lies?

Because of this ability, the unfortunate Surging Snake has been labelled as the Master of Lies. I guess it is easier to manifest the Yin instead of the Yang?  From the Surging Snake’s perspective, you are only telling people what they want to hear.

But beware the cost of this tangle of white lies and fudged truths. Because if you do it too often, you will start to assume that others around you are also engaging in deceit and untruths. This will frequently lead to relationship breakdowns due to trust issues.

How To Awaken Your Surging Snake Powers?

Most of us walk around in our daily lives with figurative ‘blinders’ on. So engrossed are we with our own lives (and mobile devices), that we often miss the physical clues around us. Training your Surging Snake powers require you to train your powers of observation. Put that mobile phone away. Walk with your head up, eyes open, constantly scanning the environment. Note what you observe. Is this a familiar route? Then in that case, what’s different about it today?

Try using a different route. Build up that courage to try something new. The survival instincts of the Surging Snake are honed.

Tongue Firmly In Cheek…

What happens if the Surging Snake gets out of control? Move to Asia and start a new career as ‘Rain Busters.’

True fact: those of us in Asian motorsports know that the Asian circuits (Sepang, Chang, and Mandalika) frequently hire ‘Rain Busters’ or known locally as Bomoh Hujan/Pawang Hujan. These practitioners are typically engaged for major international events. Their function? To keep the torrential tropical rain away.

This is a fact that I’ve always known. But it wasn’t until I studied QiMenDunJia that I figured out how they do it. Does it work? Like you wouldn’t believe!

QIMEN: I AM… THE GRAPPLING HOOK

In the practice of Qi Men Dun Jia, the Grappling Hook deity has a bad rep. Like a really, really bad rep! So bad, in fact, that most practitioners would shy away from using the Grappling Hook (me included!) It’s mysterious. And enigmatic. Worse, it has a number of very visible character flaws.

Before We Go Any Further, I Am Talking About Your Subconscious

For the benefit of those who may not have been exposed to QMDJ, allow me a couple of sentences to explain. Qi Men Dun Jia is the Art of War. It is a tool designed for strategy and tactics (forecasting and execution). However, there is a spiritual side to Qi Men Dun Jia which believes that we are, each of us, naturally connected to one of ten universal energies.

The ten QMDJ deities are basically ten different manifestations of the universal energy. They are neither demons nor angels. Like all energy forms, they are neutral. Think of your personal deity as your subconscious. It is yours to command. It doesn’t rule you.

So, expect a series of 10 articles around the 10 QMDJ deities. Since I am a sucker for self-punishment, I start with the hardest – the Grappling Hook.

How To Know Which Of The 10 Represents Your Subconscious

1. Plot your Bazi Chart here: https://bazibz.masteryacademy.com/

2 At the top of your Chart, on the right (see diagram), there is a box containing your QMDJ destiny information.

3. Look at the information under ‘Guardian Deity’

What’s So Bad About The Grappling Hook?

Since the Grappling Hook has a bad rep, let’s get the negative stuff out of the way. The easiest way to visualize a powerful Grappling Hook behaving at his or her worst is to look at how this guy operates:

Narcissistic, ostentatious, and enamored with power, an uncontrolled Grappling Hook excels at causing confusion. Forget about the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing! When it comes to an uncontrolled Grappling Hook, the right hand doesn’t even know about the existence of the left hand. This is a master of disinformation and panic.

But notice, I stressed on the adjective ‘uncontrolled’. The negative traits manifest when the person succumbs to the sweet allure of power.

The Gifts Of The Grappling Hook

One of the biggest gifts of the Grappling Hook is an exploratory mind and mental resilience. For all the Grappling Hook’s stubborn insistence of doing things their way (and only their way), the Grappling Hook individual is curiously open-minded about alternative solutions.

In a way, this power is like the mixologist of the universe. It has the ability to bring techniques from different fields, mix them together, and come up with a brand new cocktail of solutions. This one has out-of-the-box thinking down pat!

The Grappling Hook also comes with a strong precognition about what works and what doesn’t. You just ‘know’!

Given the relentless grit gifted to the Grappling Hook individual, when you bend the powers of the Grappling Hook to your will, you become endowed with one of the most important universal gifts of all – mental resilience! The trick to using this gift is to stay in control. Never allow yourself to be trapped in the past.

The Grappling Hook also has the strongest affinity with nature, medicine, food, herbs, land, property and agriculture. What if you were to contribute this ability to find alternative solutions to the medical world or to environmental issues? Under such circumstances, when the lust for power is no longer self-serving, but serving a greater good instead, somehow it doesn’t seem so bad, does it? Although, I admit, this description is sounding a bit like Thanos!

How To Awaken Your Grappling Hook Powers?

The easiest way to awaken your Grappling Hook powers is to cultivate its biggest gift – your exploratory mind. Consciously widen your knowledge base. Get curious about… well, everything! Research!

Another way would be to use the journaling technique. Journal every experiment – what you did, the outcome and learnings. This journal is for keeps. When stumped by a seemingly unsolvable problem, flip through the journal. You’d be amazed at the solutions that suddenly seem ‘obvious’.

Lastly, the intent of using this subconscious power is the most important. Use it for the greater good or with the right intentions!

Tongue Firmly In Cheek…

And for those who are curious about what happens if you use it for the wrong cause…

Sorry, that was just me being snarky! Haha! Until the next article… hope you enjoyed this.
