Feng Shui masters believes that it is in the front door and the living room of our house that energy enters, thus it is very important that we keep the front door of our house free from clutter, and the living room uncluttered and also the furniture should be arrange in a way it doesn’t feel like it’s a maze and blocks normal passage.

The front door should always be clutter free.

Fu, The Taoist’s Magical Paper Talisman

Published August 15, 2012 by jptan2012

I have been wanting to write about the Fu (Mandarin) or Hu (Foo Kien) for quite some time now, however, I debated whether it is proper for me to write about the Fu because it is something that is not easily available or something that can be bought in a store.

This Fu is from a Taoist temple in Valenzuela called Bi Tsong Put (pronounced as Bee Chong Poot). Depending on the Fu, one usually burns a set, one set is usually 3 pieces.

Fu or Hu is a Taoist magical paper talisman. Fu is an ancient and special form of ‘magic’ or sorcery (sorcery is not exactly negative unless use in a negative way) that uses special characters or images or symbols or prayers or words ‘printed’ on a yellow rice paper in red ink. It is believed that a Fu can store a magic spells and good chi. While anybody can make a Fu or Hu, it entails a special skill and blessing from a Taoist God  for you to be able to lock the magic spell or chi in the said magical paper talisman. To do this one has to be an ordained Taoist priest or a Taoist God medium. The said chi and spell is further locked into the Fu by making sure that it passes through the incense burner dedicated to the said Taoist God, Immortal or Deity mentioned in the Fu.

Anyone can activate and tap into the power of the Fu by carrying the magical paper talisman on one’s body, putting them on the window or door, or placing in the room, or simply by burning them. Most Fu or Hu are burned while one calls on the God, Deity or Immortal represented by the Fu followed by the intent. However, as mentioned, there are some Fu that are to be worn on the body like an amulet, or place on the door, etc.

Fu(s), I believe, is one of the most powerful talisman in the world, provided you get it from a reliable source, and from somebody who is not driven by monetary reasons. Unfortunately, in the Philippines, there are some temples that sell their Fu. I don’t believe that this is right, especially, if there are patrons who have greatly benefited from tapping the power of the Fu, that they sponsor printing of Fu(s).

There are different kinds of Fu(s), depending on the temple and sometimes depending on the purpose or intent of the person needing the Fu. One can use a Fu to invoke a God/Deity/Immortal’s help, to protect a household, heal the sick, or exorcise demons or bad spirits. Some people would associate the Fu like a petition paper, or a court order depending on the purpose or intent.

This is a Fu that I burn every morning. It is a Fu of a Taoist Temple in Abad Santos St., Manila called – CHEAT TAI SOON. Unlike most Fu, one set of this is 7 pieces.

There is no clear record as to what Chinese civilization first used the Fu, however, the Fu is mentioned in a lot of Chinese religious and political texts. An apocryphal Taoist text call Ku Wei Shu or Old Mystical Test, the role of Fu is associated with the last legendary Five Emperors of China, especially with Great Emperor Yu, the mysterious Emperor who founded the Hsia Dynasty.

It is said that the Great Emperor has stop a terrible flood that has devastated most of China by burning several Fu of the Goddess of the North Star.

This is the Fu of the Goddess of Mercy / Bodhisattva of Compassion / Kuan Yin. I make sure I burn at least one set of her Fu everyday.

Personally, I can attest to the power of the Fu, and I use it a lot in conjunction of my mantras and Feng Shui.

There was this one time when one of our houseboy went into a epileptic attack, some say he was being possessed by a spirit, we don’t really know, but I specifically remember my mom just got a set of Fu, burned it and after less than a minutes our houseboy became visibly relax. He was sent to the hospital, but the hospital said that they don’t think he had an epileptic attack, and our houseboy claims that he saw a dark shadow hovering over him.

This is the Fu of The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven – Sun Wukong. Sun Wukong has three different kind of Fu. This one is for personal, family matters.

Another experience with the power of the Fu that I had, happened when I was still involve in an NGO. One of our managers got an educational grant in Berlin, but he has to pay for her own airfare and board and lodging. The organization raised funds for her board and lodging, however, nobody has volunteered to shoulder her airfare. We decided to write to several politicians, travel agencies, and famous businessman. Unfortunately, all of them turned down our request, except for one Chinese businessman. When we called up his office, his secretary informed us that her boss has read the letter but that he really hasn’t replied. We are quite desperate already because our colleague is scheduled to leave in 2 days and she still hasn’t raise her airfare fund. We beg the secretary of the Chinese businessman to give us time to present our cause to the businessman himself, the secretary agreed and said we should go to their office that same afternoon and she’ll see whether she can give us 5 minutes with the Chinese businessman. We immediately left, and for some reason, I decided to bring a set of Fu (one set is 3 pieces) of The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven Sun Wukong.On our way, the secretary called my colleagues mobile phone and said that there’s no need for us to go because her boss has already informed her that he can’t finance my colleague’s trip. My colleague informs the secretary that we are already downstairs and begged her to still allow seeing the Chinese businessman. The secretary agreed and I decided to burn the Fu with the intent of getting the businessman to finance my colleague’s trip to Berlin. To make the long story short, we went up, had an audience with the businessman, and was asked a single question – How would the country benefit from this trip? – My friend gave her reply and she got the funds for her airfare!

This is another Sun Wukong’s Fu. This one is for business. There’s another one but I don’t have a copy of it, that is for health.

I know somebody who is sick of cancer and was given a ‘death sentence’ by his doctor. He started burning some Fu and now he is well. Even his doctor was surprised that he won over the cancer.

There are a lot more stories about the power of the Fu, be it about money, business, personal problems, etc. The Fu has always made magical solutions for seemingly unsolvable problems.

For one to be able to tap into the power of the Fu, the Fu is burned. You call on the Immortal/Deity represented in the Fu, then you say your intent. However, there are some Fu that can be worn on the body and or placed on the door, etc.

Communicating with Buddhas and Bodhisattvas Using a ‘Mo’

Published July 14, 2012 by jptan2012

A few nights ago I had a big scare, I woke up in the middle of the night with a severe chest pain and slight difficulty in breathing. The first thing that occurred to me is that I might be having a heart attack. The fact that I know that I have the illness star at that time intensified this fear.

The first thing that I did was to say one full mala (108 times) of the Medicine Buddha Mantra – TADYATHA OM BHAKNADZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA. After reciting the full mala, I blew on my right hand and rubbed it on my chest while sincerely praying to the Medicine Buddha to heal me.

I immediately felt a little better after reciting the Medicine Buddha mantra. However, I need to assess whether I still need to rush myself to the hospital, knowing that heart attack may be deceiving and you might not feel anything at all. I don’t want to wake my siblings up and scare them.

Not sure whether I’m really having a heart attack or not, I decided to ask the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Kuan Yin. I did this by doing an oracle or MO using my mala.

A MO is a form of oracle, one use this to divine what the Buddhas or the Bodhisattvas are trying to communicate with us. This is usually done by asking a specific question that is answerable by YES or NO, or GOOD, NEUTRAL, or BAD.

As mentioned there are different kinds of MO but what I’m about to share with you right now is the easiest from of MO.

What I did is I got my mala, and called on the Buddha or Bodhisattva that I wanted to consult. In this case, I called on Kuan Yin. I first recited Kuan Yin’s name three times and told Her that I need to consult her about my health. I then stated my question, which in this case is – AM I HAVING AN HEART ATTACK?

After stating my question, I then recited one full mala of the mantra of Kuan Yin, which is OM MANI PADME HUM.

After reciting the mantra, I then re-stated my question and then said that for YES, I’ll have one bead left, then for NO, I’ll have two beads left. I then dropped the mala and used both of my hands to pick it up. You should randomly picked it up, using both hands, then from both ends, slowly move your fingers one bead at a time from each hand until there’s only one or two beads left.

In my case, when I did this, there were two beads left so the answer in NO, which means I’m not having a heart attack.

My second question is whether it is something really serious. I repeated the process but this time I opted for an answer that will say GOOD, NEUTRAL, or BAD. Again, the process is basically the same, only this time I’ll only stop when there’s only three, or two, or a single bead left. A single bead stands for GOOD, two beads means NEUTRAL, and three beads means it’s really BAD. This time I got an answer that it is neutral. So it was not clear with me whether I have to go to the hospital or not. I decided to ask a third question.

The third question is whether I need to rush to the hospital. I did the whole process again, and this time I opted for the YES or NO response. The answer is NO, which means I don’t need to rush to the hospital.

Just to be sure I decided to the MO again for the second time, this time I called on GODDESS TARA. I repeated the same three questions, and the answers are all the same.

Doing the MO saved me from scaring my siblings and rushing to the hospital for nothing. I use the MO a lot especially in making business decisions. The MO is nice because everybody can do that and you don’t need special skill, talent, or sixth sense to be able to do the MO. However, you need to believe and not do the MO just for fun.

Simple Feng Shui Tips to Enhance Wealth Luck

Published July 1, 2012 by jptan2012

One of the first few posts that I’ve written about is – FENG SHUI TIPS TO ENHANCE WEALTH LUCK. Today, allow me to share a few more.

RECEIPTS IN THE WALLET/POCKET CREATE BAD MONEY FENG SHUI. Most of us tend to keep receipts in our wallet or pocket and just forget about it. In fact, it is not surprising that some of us may have some receipts in our wallet that’s been there for months or years. However, you should note that keeping a receipt in your wallet or pocket might create slight bad money Feng Shui. It signifies that you always have bills to pay.

SALT IN THE WALLET. Another way of creating good wealth luck is to always have a small packet of sea or rock salt in our wallet. Salt is a great chi cleanser, and having this in our pocket helps enhance wealth/money luck.

PUT A WEALTH SIGN OR WEALTH SYMBOL AS  WALLPAPER ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE. Feng Shui is all about symbolism, and putting a symbol of wealth as a wallpaper of your mobile phone helps a little in giving our wealth luck a little boost. You can use either of the following: three legged toad, pictures of gold bars, gold ingots and/or different currencies.

PUT THE WISH FULFILLING MANTRA AS WALLPAPER ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE. I’ve talked about the WISH FULFILLING MANTRA and the power of MANTRA in my previous posts. Putting the symbolic script of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra on your mobile phone helps in actualizing your wealth luck wishes.

WEAR A NINE-EYE DZI BEAD. A DZI bead is a special Tibetan bead that is suppose to have come from heaven. The DZI beads available in the market now are not original but they work as well. Wearing a 9-eye DZI bead either as a pendant or as a bracelet creates a lot of wealth luck.

Nine Eye DZI Bead on a string of Citrine.

WEAR A CITRINE BRACELET ON YOUR RECEIVING HAND. Citrine is a powerful wealth stone. It can be worn as a pendant but wearing it as bracelet is better. You should wear it on your receiving hand and not on your giving hand. Your dominant hand, meaning the hand that you use to write is the dominant hand, and thus it is your giving hand, the other hand is your receiving hand.
