How to Help the Victims of Typhoon Glenda?

Published July 17, 2014 by jptan2012

The Philippines is once against besieged by a strong typhoon.

Glenda is not as bad a Yolanda, but just the same, a lot of people were affected by the typhoon. After the typhoon, it is now time for us once again to lend a little help to the people who were greatly affected by Glenda. However, there’s no need for all of us to donate money, food, or clothes. If you don’t have an extra amount of money to spare, please remember that offering prayers will work as well.

For Buddhists, chant the mantra of Bodhisattva of Compassion, Kuan Yin – OM MANI PADME HUM with the mantra of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva – OM PRA MANI DANI SOHA or OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM or NAMO KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA or NAMA TI TSANG WANG PUSA (NAMO DI ZHANG WANG PUSA), with the mantra of the Medicine Buddha – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE  (BHEKANDZYE) RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA. One mala (108x) each or as many as you can, then dedicate it to the victims of Typhoon Glenda with international name Rammasun.

Averting the Loss of a Good Name Thru a Powerful Feng Shui Cure

Published July 7, 2014 by jptan2012

peacockToday, I would like to share with you another Feng Shui story that happened to an entrepreneur.

CG is a businesswoman who brought in a popular fashion footwear brand in the country. She actually revolutionized footwear in the country; however, I really can’t get into details of what the product and brand is. I know CG because are office is in the same building, and we have some common friends.

Her business was doing really well, and despite of the new brands or similar products in the country that competes with her product and brand, her brand remains to be the strongest in the market.

However, one day she experienced some crisis, it was said that her product contains a toxic chemical. The rumor became so bad that in a week’s time her sale dropped 70%. Her other investors are pressuring her to fix the problem, and despite the fact that she hired a PR agency, the situation just keeps on getting worst. One of her friend suggested seeing a Feng Shui expert, and they called up Master Joseph Chau, however, Master Chao was out of the country at that time and is unable to attend to them. That’s when they called me. Since we were in the same building, I know that I don’t have any excuse not to attend to them, so I went to see her right away.

I felt that the solution was simple, I told her to put an image of a peacock in her office, so that she can salvage both her the company’s image. She did and the result was quite fast, as soon as she got the image of peacock, the news started to die and her business is now doing better than before!peacock fan

Chrysanthemum is a Powerful Multi – Function Feng Shui Symbol

Published July 7, 2014 by jptan2012

chrysanthemumChrysanthemum is an exotic but famous flower. For a lot of Chinese, Chrysanthemum tea is wonderful drink. It is said that it cleanses the body from toxic substances.

However, not many people know that Chrysanthemum is also a powerful Feng Shui symbol for long life, auspicious easy life, anti – addiction, and peaceful death. While Chrysanthemum is not the only multi – function Feng Shui symbol, it certainly is one of the few that exceeds three different functions.

A Chrysanthemum is a good symbol for long life, so it makes for a good gift to someone who is sick especially an older person. There is also a certain region in China, where the people give gifts of Chrysanthemum to a woman who just gave birth as a symbol that the baby will have long life.

Another function of the Chrysanthemum is eases a person with a hard life. If generally speaking you are having a difficult life having a real or fake Chrysanthemum in your house or if you wear an image of a Chrysanthemum, you’ll find your burden lightening up a little, because Chrysanthemum also has the ability to make give an person an easier life.

Chrysanthemum is also a flower that blooms from fall to winter; it then becomes a powerful symbol from transitioning to the next life. Thus this makes a good gift for those who are comatose.

Lastly, if you are suffering from addiction, Feng Shui masters in China Chrysanthemum is also a powerful symbol to help you fight your addiction. Whether this is addiction to gambling, drugs, food, shopping, etc.

Like always I prefer the real thing, however, since it can be pretty difficult to get a Chrysanthemum in the Philippines, a nice picture or carving of the said flower will do.

A Teacher Needs a Ruyi!

Published June 29, 2014 by jptan2012

A former officemate called me a few months ago; he said he wants to ask help for his girlfriend who became a teacher. After a year of teaching high school students she got really burned out and wanted to quit teaching and do something else.

I decided to talk with his girlfriend, MD, myself. MD said that she always wanted to become a teacher however her first year of teaching was kind a traumatic for her. She was unable to control her students and she was called to the office several times because other teachers complained that her class was really noisy. “The students just won’t listen to me!” complains MD.

MD wants to quit her job but being one of the new teachers in the school, they want her to handle summer class. She just doesn’t know what to do because she loves teaching but at the same time it was traumatic first year for her.

ruyi-jade-pendantI told MD if she really loves teaching she should just stay teaching. Told her she can wear a Ruyi, because a Ruyi (also spelled as Ru YI), which is also known as the ‘Scepter of Authority’. MD said herself that her biggest problem because of her ‘young looks’ is having authority over her students, and thus a Ruyi is very good for her. The truth is a Ruyi is good for all teachers whether new or old.

MD got a Ruyi pendant and admitted that she’s going to try it out for the summer class. She called me up the other day and said that she has signed up for this school year because she thinks the Ruyi worked for her. Summer class is known to be harder class to handle because these are students who flank the said subjects and more than that most of the time these are the students who are a little more difficult to discipline, but according to MD she didn’t have any problem with her students! She now loves what she love doing!

 

Giving Out Lucky Beads!

Published June 27, 2014 by jptan2012

I’m on my way to a meeting and I’m stuck in traffic, which gives me a reason to call up DU and then to write this post.

DU and I were talking about beads, and we got to talk about how to make somebody’s day a little better. The answer is quite simple; give them a ‘lucky bead’.

What is a ‘lucky bead’?

citrinebeadIf you believe in the power of crystals and semi – precious stones, you’ll know that they carry with them some energy that has the ability to influence our luck by giving us some yang energy and concentrated chi. But whatever the crystal or semi – precious stone is it has with it some capability to give us some ‘lucky energy’. What I do is I always bring with me some loose beads that have been blessed already, and whenever somebody is having a rough day, I give them a piece of the lucky bead. It might not totally change the course of his day but it will definitely do something positive for the person, at the very least, the mere fact of receiving something from a person who shows concern will make his/her day better.

I’m Not Psychic But I Knew That This Was Going to be A Good Day!

Just a few days ago I was lamenting to my good friend DU how it’s been awhile since I last saw a bird outside of my room. Regular readers of this blog will know that I love being ‘visited’ by birds because birds are great omens that something good is about to happen. They deliver good news that a good luck is about to happen. In fact, I have previously written about them in a post called – BE RECEPTIVE TO CELESTIAL MESSAGES: OMENS OF GOOD LUCK!
However, when I wake up this morning, when I opened my window there was a large grayish bird outside my window. Mind you its not a Maya bird (the most common bird in the Philippines, and maybe the only bird that thrive in the city), it is double the size of the Maya bird but they are of the same color. This was not the first time I saw this particular bird and whenever I see it outside my window and hear it chirp, I know that something really good is about to happen. So, as soon as I saw this bird I knew already that there’s going to be good news soon.

When I step out of the house, I was surprised that a flock of Maya birds, approximately 15 of them descended on our front porch, stayed there for a few seconds before flying off again. Hmmm….the good news must be really big. Then when I was about to get on my car, again there was a flock of bird that flew over me! That’s when I knew that there’s big good news awaiting for me and it is going g to happen today.

Earlier this afternoon, around 3pm I received my first good news, I participated on a pitch to become the consulting company of a medical machine business, I’m the underdog because I was the only single proprietor agency who participated, all the others were international franchise, then I was also the youngest company there. But guess what, I got the news that I got the contract! First good news.

I barely able to fully digest the news when another client called up. He said that my contract with them is about to end, and unlike before they are not going to automatically renew it, because they want a new contract to indicate that they are giving me an increase with my retainer. I didn’t have to ask for it, they thought of it and offered it! Second good news!

Clarifications on the Post About the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde

Published June 20, 2014 by jptan2012

I know that the information shared on this blog the other day about the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde entitled – WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE – & – PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE ILL EFFECTS OF THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE – can be a little overwhelming for a lot of you. Almost immediately I was bombarded by literally hundreds of emails, which I really haven’t read. On top of that, there were also an overwhelming number of sms that was sent to me, not to mention several phone calls.

I thought it is only appropriate to clarify something for everybody’s better understanding of the topic.

First, Mercury Retrograde is as mentioned a Western Astrology concept, I’m not an expert and I don’t have mastery of the said topic, however, I know it to be true because:

  1. I know that Western Astrology to be true. Before I dwelt on Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology, Western Astrology was my first interest. My personal bias is that Chinese Astrology is more accurate but it doesn’t change the fact that Western Astrology has some basis.
  2. Mercury Retrograde is a concept that I have read before. In fact, several years back. There are also some famous people who have claimed that they experienced Mercury Retrograde and that it has affected their relationship and work. Some of these people are Ronald Reagan, Cameron Mackintosh, Shirley Maclaine, etc.
  3. The few times I got to meet some reputable Astrologer, this is something that we’ve discussed. And they are all in agreement that this is true.
  4. Particularly this year, when June set in a lot of people have been complaining to me about their relationship problems and communication problems, which prompted me to do more research about this topic.
  5. I believe that it is stronger this year because of several factors that may affect it to become stronger. This is just theory and I didn’t included in the first two article because it is quite difficult for me to substantiate this, but the stronger Hungry Ghost Month this year might be making Mercury Retrograde stronger also.

Second, the stronger Hungry Ghost Month phenomenon is not something new. Although rare it has been known to happen. And it is different from what happened last year, because last year we had a triple whammy, but this year it is simply stronger Hungry Ghost Month that we have to deal with it, and because it is stronger, it also extends itself. As mentioned, I’ve consulted other Feng Shui experts, particularly my teachers; most of them agree that this is indeed the case. However, I would like to clarify that there is one particular Feng Shui expert that said that they (group that she works with) are not sure whether this is an interpretation concern. Meaning, they saw it but they seem to think that this is still subject to further discussion. They are drawing their unclear stand from the ‘Double Negative Theory’; this theory states that in some aspects of Feng Shui a double negative may be a positive sign.

Third, regarding the cures for the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde, I would like to reiterate that something is still way better than nothing at all.prayer

Lastly, we should not under estimate the power of a prayer. In fact, if you look at the suggested cure, a lot of it is drawing power or protection from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and sutras (Buddhist holy texts that are considered prayer books) and mantras, which is a form of praying. On top of this, I personally believe is also going to create some form of protection. Do good deeds, help people, help people you know, but more than that help people that you don’t know. Do something that is beyond what is JUST COMFORTABLE. The positive energy created by a very good deed is a very powerful protection, and remember a good deed is not measure by how many people you help or by how much you spent. A good deed is measured by sincerity, the amount of compassion you have, and how much of you was shared.
