Handling Kua Direction Problems

Published November 27, 2013 by jptan2012

Recently, Atty. B, a reader whom I’ve met in person,  got his WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT found out about his Kua number and Kua good and bad directions.

Unfortunately, Atty. B’s head is facing his bad direction and he is unable to move his bed, much more to move to another room. I received an SMS asking for a possible cure. Normally, I would insist that a person change his sleeping directions, however, I seem to sense that Atty. B is somebody who would have seriously considered it already but just can’t make any adjustments.

So for all of you who is facing the same dilemma, I suggest the following cure:

  1. Place a bowl of rock or sea salt on your headboard. If you can get Pink Himalayan Salt, all the better. The hassle here is that you have to remember to replace the salt every 2 weeks. The salt will constantly neutralize all the negative energies.

    Any kind of sea salt or rock salt will do. But using Pink Himalayan Salt is the best.

  2. A cluster of amethyst or clear quartz crystal. The crystal will act as a generator of positive chi.amethyst cluster
  3. Ammonite. I’ve written about Ammonites before and if you read the article / blog post again you might be wondering as to why we one would need a wealth enhancing cure if one faces a bad direction. This is because one of the major negative effects of facing a bad direction is a financial problem. Sometimes, I can seriously impede your full wealth potential. Meaning you might have some money, but what you don’t realize is that because you faced your bad Kua direction that wealth potential that you are enjoying could be so much bigger!ammonite
  4. An image of the Goddess of the North Star or Dou Mu Yuan Jun. A small one will do but it has to be made of jade. Goddess of the North Star is said to be the mother of the entire Tai Suey god, and is the ruler of all directions. Having an image of the Goddess of the North Star on your headboard is like receiving the protective love of a celestial mother. Remember you can use a big pendant size image that is made of jade. Unfortunately, this can be hard to find.Dou Mu Yuan Jun
  5. Kalachakra Symbol. The Kalachakra is also another master protection image from Buddhism. Having the image on your headboard will provide added protection. I have written about the power of the Kalachakra several times. Although, I just realized that I never had a post solely about it. One of the best ways to understand Kalachakra is to read my post about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

    The Kalachakra symbol is one of the most powerful protection symbol in Buddhism. It actually consists of ten syllable mantra, with it symbolic script condensed into one. The mantra itself is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, the mantra of the Kalachakra is never chanted without the mantra OM AH HUM. Making the complete mantra of Kalachakra - OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. This is the reason why I decided to put the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM on top of the Kalachakra symbol. As mentioned this is a very powerful protection symbol and can be likened to the Scapular of the Catholics. In fact, you'll seldom see a Tibetan Monk with wearing the symbol of the Kalachakra on their body. It may be hidden but most likely they have it somewhere on their body. But you'll never see them have the symbolic scripts tattooed because it is considered extremely bad luck to have a mantra tattooed on your body.

  6. Lastly, having unlit sandalwood incense or real sandalwood will also help negate the negative energy cause by facing the negative Kua direction.sandalwood

Note that it is necessary to have all six items there. People often ask me why do we need to have all six. The above suggestion is a product of several trial and error recommendation of my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong. He found that lacking an item will not work as well as having all six items. Personally, I have recommended this cure to a friend before. Since he was not able to immediately get an image of Dou Mu Yuan Jun, he confessed that it seem not to work as well as he wanted it to be. Fortunately, I came across an image of the Dou Mu Yuan Jun and gave one to him; he said he could feel the difference once he had the image of Dou Mu Yuan Jun.

 

Preventing Nightmares and Sleepless Nights

Published July 30, 2012 by jptan2012

One quick tip to avoid nightmares and/or sleepless nights is to make sure that your head when sleeping is not facing a window, even if that direction is a good direction for you base on your Kua number. Doing so will attract a lot of yin energy which will make you sleepless or have nightmares.

However, if this is unavoidable, you just have to make sure that you close the window and cover it with a thick curtain. Blinds will not do because it still has small slits and thus yin energy will still come in. It has to be thick curtains.

Opening the windows in the morning is fine, but in the evening when you go to sleep make sure that they are close and is covered by a thick curtain.

Feng Shui Tips to Enhance Scholastic or Education Luck

Published July 13, 2012 by jptan2012

I’m writing this post upon the special request of a reader. J is scheduled to take an exam in about a week’s time or so and another one in September. She’s requesting for some Feng Shui tips to enhance scholastic or education luck.

The following are some of the powerful Feng Shui tips that will help enhance education / scholastic luck.

First and foremost, you need to ACTIVATE THE SCHOLASTIC CORNER WITH A CRYSTAL GLOBE. Base on the 8 Mansions school of Feng Shui, the scholastic corner is in northeast section of your room or house. Get a compass and stand on the middle of your room or house and look for the northeast section. Put a crystal globe there, any color of the crystal will do but it is best to stick with the natural quartz crystal. Using a real crystal is best but one that looks like a crystal like glass will also work.

Tap into the POWER OF A SINGLE POINTED GENERATOR QUARTZ CRYSTAL. The power of crystal has been well known for quite some time now. For education luck using a single pointed generator quartz crystal will help you concentrate better and achieve your goal to have scholastic success. You can put this on your study table. However, you need to ensure that it is cleanse of any energy but your energy. You can do this by putting it on top of a rock salt or sea salt for 3 days.

Wear a PAGODA PENDANT and a CHINESE CALLIGRAPHY BRUSH PENDANT. The pagoda pendant will help you have good scholastic luck and empower you with good concentrate chi. The Chinese calligraphy brush pendant is also a very powerful Feng Shui to gain scholastic. It symbolizes learning because in the olden times only educated person knows how to use the Chinese calligraphy brush. If you don’t want them as pendants, you can easily buy a Jade Pagoda and put it on your table, for the Chinese calligraphy brush you can simply buy a real one and put it on your table.

STUDY AND SLEEP IN THE DIRECTION OF YOUR FU WEI, you can do this by checking your Kua number and look for your Fu Wei direction. Whenever you study, or if possible even when you sleep you should be activating your Fu Wei. The Fu Wei is activated when you face that direction when you’re studying, and your head is pointed in that direction when you sleep. Do know your Kua number and the direction of your Fu Wei please read my post – WHAT IS FENG SHUI KUA NUMBER AND HOW TO CALCULATE IT.

Put an image of LU DONGBIN and/or of CONFUCIUS on your table. Lu Dongbin is a scholarly, learned alchemist, of the 8 Immortals. Putting an image of Lu Dongbin on your table helps gets his blessing of scholastic luck. You can read more about Lu Dongbin in an earlier post called – LU DONGBIN: THE THIRD IMMORTAL WHO HAPPENS TO BE THE DEFACTO CHIEF OF THE EIGHT IMMORTALS. Confucius, on the other hand, is one of the most learned men in history. Again, using his image as a Feng Shui symbol helps you bring out to the universe your wish for scholastic success.

The Feng Shui of Sleep

Published June 5, 2012 by jptan2012

I know that some people may think that this is a little extreme, but the truth is there is such a thing as Feng Shui of sleep. When we sleep that’s when we rejuvenate, that’s when our body gathers more energy. Also, sleep is maybe one of the longest, if not the longest time of day when we face a single direction, and as discussed in my previous posts, depending on your Kua Number, different directions may create either good or bad luck for you.

When we sleep, where our head is ‘pointed’ is actually the direction we are activating, thus it is important that we make sure that our head is directed towards one of our lucky directions. You can find out more about it by reading my posts – WHAT IS FENG SHUI KUA NUMBER AND HOW TO CALCULATE IT; FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF LUCK BASE ON YOUR KUA NUMBER; FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF BAD LUCK BASE ON YOUR KUA NUMBER.

Also in Feng Shui, between 11pm and 1am, which is the hour of the rat, the first animal zodiac, is the time when our body rejuvenates better. So it is best that we go to sleep before 11pm. More than that, the morning chi, especially between 5am to 9am is considered, as the ‘freshest’ chi. It’s important that we absorb the chi of these hours so that we ‘energize’ our own chi.

Maybe that is why it is not surprising that most successful people are early riser.

Four Different Types of Bad Luck Base on Your Kua Number

Published May 18, 2012 by jptan2012

The other day, I talked about the FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF LUCK BASE ON YOUR KUA NUMBER, today allow me to share with you the 4 different types of bad luck base on your Kua number.

One of these bad lucks is called HO HAI, which is loosely translated as ‘accidents and mishaps’, this is a unlucky direction in the sense that continuously confronting or activating this luck by facing its corresponding direction base on your Kua number will create some bad luck that should have been otherwise preventable. For example, you can fall off the stairs and break a leg, or through carelessness might miss out on some detail with work that might create some problem with your boss or colleagues or clients.

Another bad luck is the WU KWEI, literal translation is “Five Ghost’. This may sound scary and to some extent it is really quite scary. For people who have requested me to read their Bazi, I call this luck as ‘Personal Bad Luck’, because Wu Kwei tends to attack anything that’s quite personal. For example, if you’re a parent a child might get hurt, it can also create a lot of disharmony and quarrels both in your work place and at home. You might also have problems with fire and theft.

LIU SHA or “Six Killings’ is another bad luck. This basically attacks your career and wealth luck. Meaning, you might lose a job or get into trouble because of it. It’s secondary effect is with the family, you might have a broken family or have some financial problems because of family matters like a family member that gets into gambling or an illness that will need long term care thus creating financial problems.

The last of these bad lucks is CHUEH MING, which is also directly can be translated into “Total Loss’, this may be scariest of all the bad luck direction base on your Kua number.  This is considered as the most fatal of all directions, because it might create total bad luck. Continuously facing or ‘activating’ this direction might even negate your good karma and good Feng Shui.

Four Different Types of Luck Base on Your Kua Number

Published May 16, 2012 by jptan2012

A few post ago, I wrote about – WHAT IS FENG KUA NUMBER AND HOW TO CALCULATE IT. In that particular post I wrote about the different types of luck and bad luck base on different directions as dictated by your Kua number.

Today, allow me to share with you the 4 different types of good luck base on your Kua number. The four different good lucks are SHENG CHI (Success), TIEN YI (HEALTH), NIEN YEN (Relationship/Love) and FU WEI (Personal Development/Growth).

It’s advisable to always bring a compass with you if you really want to ensure that you always activate your lucky directions.

SHENG CHI, which I have indicated as the ‘Success’ direction, is actually loosely translated as ‘generating chi’ or ‘generating energy’. Most Feng Shui experts and Chinese believes that this is the best amongst all the four different luck, because this largely governs your personal success, especially in business, or if it is wealth growth and prosperity that you’re looking for. This direction also governs your ‘political’ potential. By political I don’t mean it to be the real sense of politics but more of how you handle situation in your professional life.  This is also the direction that governs your recognition luck.

TIEN YI is loosely translated as ‘heaven’s doctor’. This largely governs one’s health. If you are experiencing health problems or is afflicted with the illness star it’s best to have your head face the direction of your Tien Yi when sleeping, just make sure that the illness star is not in that direction on that particular year. However, Tien Yi is not only about health, it also provides medium range wealth and career luck. So some people consider this as the second best luck.

NIEN YEN’s loose translation is ‘descendant and longevity’, but as you can see the English translation that I indicated is RELATIONSHIP/LOVE, because this directions basically deals with primarily family relationship luck and descendant’s luck. This is also the luck that governs your all your relationship that includes love life. This is also a secondary health direction, so if you’re sick and is unable to face your Tien Yi direction, this is the second option.

FU WEI’s loose translation is ‘basic self’. This is the direction that largely governs your personal growth but is not related to career and/or financial growth. This direction is largely associated with people who need to seek enlightenment or needs to know what they want to do in life. This is also a direction that is largely beneficial to those who need to seek spirituality and clarity. If you’re going through a lot of personal problem, this is the direction to activate.

It’s quite easy for us to misinterpret that Sheng Chi is the best luck; in fact, this is the case with most Chinese and some Feng Shui experts. However, I don’t think this is the case, each of the lucky and it’s corresponding directions base in your Kua number serves it’s own purpose. For example, you may be enjoying career success and financial luck but is going through a tough personal fulfillment phase; you can activate your Fu Wei and need not concentrate too much on your Sheng Chi. You also may be a successful businessman, but your health of family life is bad, then you can activate your Tien Yi and Nien Yen respectively. It’s really finding the right balance and looking for what’s missing in your life or what would be your priority.

How do you activate these directions, it’s quite simple, you just face that direction when working and eating. When sleeping your head should be towards the direction you want to activate.

If you have the lucky directions, you also have the unlucky directions. If you wish to know more about it you can read my post – FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF BAD LUCK BASE ON YOUR KUA NUMBER.

What is Feng Shui Kua Number and How to Calculate It

Published May 5, 2012 by jptan2012

There are so many things that I want to write about that I’m unable to do so because it would require that you should have a prior knowledge of some things like your KUA NUMBER, your BASKET OF ELEMENTS and it’s WEIGHTING, etc. But some of these things would need a lot of dedication and time for you to be able to really do it yourself. I’m not sure whether I’m ready or capable of doing a ‘blog tutorial’ type of lesson. However, counting your Kua number is something that you can learn really fast so I’ve decided to share it with you now.

There are different Feng Shui schools of thought, and one of them is the Compass Feng Shui. Calculating the Kua number is a sub-thought of the Compass Feng Shui.

Basically your Kua number determines the lucky and unlucky directions of your life. I’ll discuss about these lucky and unlucky directions in details on my next post. But knowing your Kua number will determine whether you are an East or West group person and your corresponding lucky and unlucky directions.

The numbers one (1), three (3), four (4) and nine (9) belongs to the East Group. The numbers two (2), six (6), seven (7) and eight (8) belongs to the West Group. The number 5 (five) is replace by eight (8) for women, and by two (2) for men.

The four lucks are: SHENG CHI (Success), TIEN YI (HEALTH), NIEN YEN (Relationship/Love) and FU WEI (Personal Development/Growth).

The four bad lucks are: HO HAI (Unlucky), WU KWEI (Five Ghosts), LIU SHA (6 Killing), CHUEH MING (Total Loss).

If you wish to know more about these lucks and bad lucks please do read my posts FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF LUCK BASE ON YOUR KUA NUMBER and FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF BAD LUCK BASE ON YOUR KUA NUMBER.

If your Kua Number is 1 your lucky directions are – SouthEast (SHENG CHI), East (TIEN YI), South (NIEN YEN) and North (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – West (HO HAI), NorthEast (WU KWEI), NorthWest (LIU SHA), SouthWest (CHUEH MING).

If your Kua Number is 2 your lucky directions are – NorthEast (SHENG CHI), West (TIEN YI), NorthWest (NIEN YEN), and SouthWest (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – East (HO HAI), SouthEast (WU KWEI), South (LIU SHA), and North (CHUEH MING)

If your Kua Number is 3 your lucky directions are – South (SHENG CHI), North (TIEN YI), SouthEast (NIEN YEN), and East (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – SouthWest (HO HAI), NorthWest (WU KWEI), NorthEast (LIU SHA), and West (CHUEH MING).

If your Kua Number is 4 your lucky directions are – North (SHENG CHI), South ( TIEN YI), East (NIEN YEN), and SouthEast (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – Northwest (HO HAI), SouthWest (WU KWEI), West (LIU SHA), and NorthEast (CHUEH MING).

If your Kua Number is 6 your lucky directions are – West (SHENG CHI), NorthEast (TIEN YI), SouthWest (NIEN YEN), NorthWest (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are SouthEast (HO HAI), East (WU KWEI), North (LIU SHA), South (CHEUH MING)

If your Kua Number is 7, your lucky directions are – NorthWest (SHENG CHI), SouthWest (TIEN YI), NorthEast (NIEN YEN), and West (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – North (HO HAI), South (WU KWEI), SouthEast (LIU SHA), and East (Chueh Ming).

If your Kua Number is 8, your lucky directions are – SouthWest (SHENG CHI), NorthWest (TIEN YI), West (NIEN YEN) and NorthEast (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – South (HO HAI), North (WU KWEI), East (LIU SHA), and SouthEast (CHEUH MING).

If your Kua Number is 9, your lucky directions are – East (SHENG CHI), SouthEast (TIEN YI), North (NIEN YEN), and South (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – NorthEast (HO HAI), West (WU KWEI), SouthWest (LIU SHA), and NorthWest (CHUEH MING).

Calculating the Kua number of a guy from a girl slightly differ from each other. For the guy, what you need to do is take the last 2 digits of your birth year. Add them together and keep on adding them until you get a single digit. If you were born before the year 2000, deduct this number from the number 10, and 9 if you were born in the year 2000 or later. The result is your Kua number.

For example: 1973 (7+3=10 / 1+0=1 / 10-1=9) Kua Number is 9

For the women, you also take the last two digits of your birth year. Add them together and keep on adding until you get a single digit. Add 5 to this number if you were born before the year 2000, add 6 if you were born in the year 2000 or later. If the result is a two digit number, keep adding it again until you again get a single digit. This is your Kua number.

Please note that if you were born before Feb. 4 of the year, your birth year is that of the year before. For example, if you were born between Jan. 1 and Feb. 3, your birth year is that of the previous year. Let’s say you were born on Feb. 3, 2000, that means your birth year is still 1999.

Feng Shui is Personal

Published March 2, 2012 by jptan2012

The past few days I got several emails from readers of this blog and calls from my friends asking whether I’ve seen the jade pendant of Kris Aquino. I suppose Google search on Kris Aquino’s Jade Pendant went up also because of this interest about what she’s wearing.

I’ve seen the pendant that she’s been wearing, and yes it’s nice. Judging from the look of it it’s a jadeite and not a nephrite. Can’t really tell unless I see it in person and able to touch it. I’m also thinking that people are asking because they want to buy such a pendant for themselves. If you’re looking for it as a ornamental jewelry, I guess, that’s perfectly fine, but, if you’re looking for it as a Feng Shui jewelry allow me to say that what works for her may not work for you.

Why? Simple. Feng Shui is personal.

While there are some basic Feng Shui guidelines that we can all follow, the real essence of Feng Shui is personal. What works for a friend may not work for you. For Feng Shui to be truly effective one has to look at the following:

Kua Number. A Kua number, which is computed base on your birth date determines your lucky and unlucky directions, this also defines your health sector. While people with the same Kua number will have the same lucky and unlucky directions, you should note that there are 9 Kua numbers, meaning there are nine possible combinations.

Astrological Weight. Again your astrological weight is computed base on your birth date. This basically defines on what kind of life one has or will have. Base on your astrological birth weight one can advice a possible Feng Shui charm that one will need for the rest of their life.

BAZI Chart. The Bazi is also called Paht Chee, 8 Characters, and 4 Pillars. Bazi, Paht Chee, and Eight Characters basically mean the same thing; it’s just said in different languages, namely and respectively in Mandarin, Hong Kong Chinese, and English. In fact, there are other terms for Bazi but they are all basically the same, and the ones mentioned here are the most common one. It is also called Four Pillars, because when writing down the Bazi you create four different pillars that help define who you are and your life luck, from this we then get the Life Luck Cycle Pillar. The Bazi is also computed through your birth date, and here we are able to look deeply as to what are your elements, your ruling element, your self-element, and what are the charms that you need. I once heard Chico Garcia of The Morning Rush of RX 93.1 saying that – I WAS SUPPOSE TO HAVE A VERY BAD YEAR LAST YEAR, BUT EVERYTHING TURN OUT WELL. That is because I would assume that he got a ‘generic forecast’, meaning, he would have just read it on the news paper, magazine, or a Feng Shui web site selling a Feng Shui charm, or a Feng Shui annual forecast book.

I’m also guilty of writing down an annual forecast that is because I always believe that not all people will have access to or will be able to afford a Bazi reading. However, I always stress that the general annual forecast is just that – a general reading, in some ways it can be considered as a generic reading. I also avoided suggesting Feng Shui cures that may have an effect on the person base on their basket of elements.

The past couple of years showed a significant lack of the water element, and because of this a lot of the Feng Shui experts who sells Annual Feng Shui Forecast books and Feng Shui charms or cures recommended a Water Charm. While the said Water Charm may be useful for some people, it should be noted that there are people who can’t carry a Feng Shui charm because they may have a heavy weighting of the water element and ‘carrying’ more water will definitely be bad for them. In the same manner that they dispense of recommendations of the year’s lucky color, colors of clothes that we wear has a significant effect on our life because colors are representation of the five elements that governed the principle of Feng Shui – WATER, WOOD, FIRE, EARTH, METAL. So for 2012 Year of the Water Dragon’s Bazi indicates that there is a significance lack of fire element, you’ll hear people say that this year’s lucky color are – RED, ORANGE, PINK, VIOLET, PURPLE, because these are the colors that represent the fire element. Again, while this in general is correct, people who have a very high fire element in their Basket of Elements base on their Bazi chart will find themselves getting into more fight, being exhausted, or ‘burning’ of their luck if they follow the so called lucky colors of the year.Image

Going back to Kris Aquino’s jade pendant, if she’s wearing it as a Feng Shui charm then it might have been suggested by her Feng Shui consultant, however, buying the same pendant, which I presume is going to be pricey if its made of high quality jade, more so if it’s a nephrite jade, then furthermore expensive if somebody decides to market it as Kris Aquino’s Jade Pendant, will still not ensure that it will have the same beneficial effect on you.

Always remember that Feng Shui is personal. If you happen to see a Feng Shui expert who markets a Kris Aquino Jade Pendant without even looking at your Bazi chart, your alarm signal should go off. Asking for your year of birth is not enough. It has to be your full birth date and time, and she or he must show you your Bazi chart for her or him to really be able to give an intelligent advice on your Feng Shui for your life or for the year.

REMEMBER FENG SHUI IS PERSONAL.
