This post might contradict my previous post somewhat because if something’s free, surely there’s some hidden costs or agenda. Thanks to the practitioners whom I have spoken/interacted with, they have willingly shared some free content which I feel will benefit those who are new to Chinese metaphysics and hence, I have provided some links below which I hope will be beneficial to those who aspire to learn this art.
The number of Chinese metaphysics practitioners is on the rise, and this is a good sign because this shows that more people will learn and appreciate Chinese culture and ancient scriptures such as Yi Jing, Tao Te Ching, and the likes. However, there are also some people who learn Chinese metaphysics so that they can use it for other reasons.
If you are keen to learn the various Chinese divination systems such as Bazi, Yi Jing, Feng Shui, and Qi Men Dun Jia; there are many resources and information out there that are widely available. However, do be aware that there is also false information that is purposely uploaded online, and you will need to exercise some wisdom to discern whether the teachings are authentic since there are many self-taught practitioners.
Furthermore, because the Chinese metaphysics industry is mostly unregulated, anyone can claim to be a master after completing a Chinese metaphysics course that probably cost thousands of dollars.
Say you need to undergo a surgery, will you let a self-taught person or an inexperienced person operate on you? Maybe, if you are concerned about costs (but that is not to say that those who charge low prices are not worth their salt). I do personally know of practitioners who charge affordable rates because they genuinely want to help others, and they have made it their life mission to better the lives of others through Chinese metaphysics. However, the same is also true. Those who charge ridiculously high prices may not necessarily be good, and they command a high price only because they know how to market themselves and are well-known.
If you are interested to learn Bazi and you are not quite sure if you are willing to part with your hard-earned money, you should check out Eric’s Bazi Insider Channel as it will help to build your fundamental knowledge in Bazi.
On the other hand, if you are already practising Bazi/Feng Shui and you are looking for some free online tools that can help you; you should check out Jenson’s Bazi Calculator. Jenson also has got a free 24 Mountains Feng Shui Compass and an 8 Mansions Feng Shui Tool that new homeowners who are trained in Feng Shui can use too!
I firmly believe that by knowing and understanding your personal Bazi (4 pillars), you can have a good grip on your life purpose/destiny and make better life decisions/choices. Some practitioners have gone as far as six pillars to read and interpret charts but if all this sounds new to you, start from the basics!
