Feng Shui Tips to Activate Descendant Luck

Published Pebrero 29, 2012 by jptan2012

One of the greatest aspirations of the Chinese is to ensure that they have good descendants, thus when looking for a spouse they consult Feng Shui experts to ensure that descendant’s luck of a couple is present. In fact, once the wife gets pregnant she is treated like a goddess, even the mother-in-law will definitely make sure that the pregnant daughter-in-law is taken care of properly to ensure a smooth pregnancy.

Also, in the old days much effort is given to ensuring that a boy is born, is to ensure the family’s lineage is well preserved. A girl is considered as a less important child because she is destined to be married off to another family, and thus considered as somebody else’s child. In fact, this practice or belief has become so bad that there are some Chinese families who don’t give names to their daughter because they’re destined to be known as the wife of so-so. Thus when addressing them in the household they’re simply called as First Daughter, Second Daughter, Big Sister, or Second Sister, or Third Sister. When addressed by somebody else other than their family they’re simply called as ‘First Daughter of Wong Family’ they’re simply defined by their family name and whether they’re the eldest daughter or the youngest, etc. When they get married they’re then simply defined by the husband’s family name. My own grandmother doesn’t even have her own name.

However, because I don’t believe that women are of a ‘lesser’ being compared to men, I will not write about Feng Shui tips in ensuring that the couple are to have a boy, rather, I’d like to share some Feng Shui tips to activate one’s Descendant Luck or Fertility Luck.

Several of the Feng Shui tips that I’m going to mention are things that I’ve recommended to friends and family.

RED KUAN YIN PENDANT.  Kuan Yin (also known as ‘Goddess of Mercy’, ‘Buddha of Compassion’) is a Bodhisattva revered both in Taoism and Buddhism. Kuan Yin grants the wish of having of babies. For this purpose a red Kuan Yin (also spelled as Kwan Yin, Quan Yin) is best to help you activate your Descendant’s Luck. It is highly recommended that both the husband and the wife wear a red Kuan Yin pendant. However, if this is not possible, then it is recommended that the woman wear the pendant. I have three different previous post about Kuan Yin. Get to know her by reading them. The first post is KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEARS THE CRIES OF THE WORLD, the second post is UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN, and the third post is PAYING HOMAGE TO KUAN YIN, THE BUDDHA OF COMPASSION.

RABBIT. A rabbit is a very powerful symbol of fertility. It’s believes that placing the image of a rabbit in the East section of the bedroom can increase the chances of fertility.

HAPPY FAT BUDDHA WITH CHILDREN. Having the image of the Happy Fat Buddha whose real name is Maitreya Buddha in your house helps increase your potential of having a good descendant luck. You can also know more about the Happy Fat Buddha by clicking here.

CARNELIAN BRACELET. Carnelian or Carnelian Agates or Orange Agates worn as bracelet is one of the best fertility charm. Carnelian is a stone or semi-precious stone that directly controls our sixth chakra – the sire where our reproductive organs are located. Wearing a carnelian as a bracelet will increase the wearer’s chance of being more fertile. This charm is also great for people who have found to have low sperm or egg count.

IMAGE OF KUAN YIN WITH A BABY. Placing an image of Kuan Yin with a Baby is another Feng Shui Descendant Luck enhancer. For this purpose, it’s best to place the image of Kuan Yin with a Baby on the west section of your house. If this is not possible you can also place the image of Kuan Yin with a Baby in the West corner of your living room.

A PAIR OF ELEPHANTS. This is one of the most effective Feng Shui cure and enhancer to activate one’s descendant luck. You should note that the trunk of the elephants should be down and not up. Place a pair of elephants with the trunks down on the west section of your room and if possible both couples should stroke the trunks of the elephant three times each night.

THREE PIECES OF CERAMIC OR PORCELAIN POMEGRANATE AND/OR PEACH. Both the pomegranate and the peach are powerful Feng Shui tools to enhance your descendant luck or fertility luck. In choosing a ceramic or porcelain pomegranate, choose the one that has a color of deep red. For ceramic or porcelain peach choose one that has a color of bright pink.

RECITE THE MANTRA OF GODDESS TARA. Goddess Tara or Green Tara is a Buddhist deity born out of Avalokitesvara or Kuan YIn’s tear drop. I’ll discuss more about Green Tara on a future post, however, allow me to say that calling on Goddess Tara by reciting her mantra is one way of activating one’s Descendant Luck. Furthermore, placing an image of the white manifestation of Goddess Tara called White Tara on the west section of your house also activates one’s descendant luck. Goddess Tara’s mantra is OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA. Wearing her seed syllable TAM is also a powerful tool to activate one’s descendant luck. The seed syllable TAM is one of the featured symbolic syllable in the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

Feng Shui Tips to Activate Mentor’s Luck

Published Pebrero 29, 2012 by jptan2012

No one can do things on his or her own. No one is able to achieve success on his or her own. Not only its is absolutely wrong and egoistic to say that I made it on my own, no matter how much the person really believes this, but it is also one of the greatest lie fabricated by mankind. On our way to success, no matter how intelligent you are, no matter how hard you work, we will need somebody to help us get to the top.

We all need somebody to help us. We all need a mentor. Mentor here doesn’t only refer to people who are in power who can teach us things or help us in achieving our goals, although it’s the primary aspect of Mentor’s Luck, mentor here also refers to people who may not be our senior in stature, age, experience, but are around us can is able to contribute to our success.

In Feng Shui, there a lot of ways in which we can activate our Mentor’s Luck, and by doing activating our Mentor’s Luck we start to attract people who may help us along the way.

One of the primary and basic tip in activating Mentor’s Luck is by being positive ourselves. By being truly positive, we start to exude a powerful positive aura, which in turn will attract people who are also positive.

We actually often here people complaining and saying things like: ‘Why am I such a magnet for losers?’ or ‘Why do I always attract bad employees/employers? Or ‘Why do I end up with horrible lovers?’ Well, the answer is because Feng Shui and personal energies attract the people that we project.

So the first and most basic tip is to become positive ourselves!

After doing the first step of exuding a more positive attitude ourselves, we can further boost our Mentor’s Luck by doing the following:

CRYSTAL CLUSTER. Another simple way of activating Mentor’s Luck is by putting a crystal cluster on the Northwest section of your room, home, office, or table. A crystal cluster, which has several ‘points’ of energy has the power to cleanse the energy of the Northwest section, which in turn controls our Mentor’s Luck.

Use Citrine cluster for business or financial mentor luck; Amethyst cluster for someone who can impart to you intelligence and skills in life, rose quartz cluster for relationship mentor luck, and clear quartz cluster for an inner peace guru.

PICTURES. Placing pictures of powerful individuals in the Northwest section of your house or room. Pictures or images carry their own energies, thus praying in front of a Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity, Immortal, Goddess, or Saint (for Christians) is a very powerful tool to achieve your wishes. However, when I said pictures, I’m not referring to the god of your religion but I’m referring to people who you want to emulate. This can be pictures of famous people like HH the 14th Dalai Lama, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Nelson Mandela, etc. I used to have a picture of Steve Jobs on the Northwest corner of my room, however, since his passing I’ve decided to take it out, because it’s too much Yin energy. Unless, of course, the person is a living Buddha before his/her passing, it’s best not to use a picture of a person who has passed away.

A friend who works as the country head of one of the largest NGO in the world was having a lot of problems in implementing their projects. She found herself losing patience and wanting to quit. She shared that she can just be like Mother Teresa, patient, truly loving, yet persuasive and powerful. I then advised her to put an image of Mother Teresa on the Northwest section of her condo unit, and in the Northwest corner of her office. She did! Needless to say 3 months after she placed the picture she gradually felt the effects of having the picture of Mother Teresa. The implementations of their projects are now smoother and they don’t meet as many hindrances!

Maitreya Buddha also known as the Happy Fat Buddha or Laughing Buddha

IMAGES OF BODHISATTVAS, IMMORTALS, OR DEITIES. Placing images of some powerful Bodhisattvas, Immortals, or Deities in the Northwest section your office or house is another great way of enhancing Mentor’s Luck. Furthermore, if an image of Bodhisattva or Immortal, or a Deity is used, other than enhancing your Mentor’s Luck by blessing the Northwest corner of their energies, you also tap into their blessing. I think this is the best way of activating Mentor’s Luck.

Furthermore, wearing their images as a gold or jade pendant will also bring out Mentor’s Luck blessing from them.

Use the image of the Maitreya Buddha also known as the Great Happy Buddha, Happy Fat Buddha or Laughing Buddha, if you’re working in a very place where there’s an absence of harmony and happiness. If you wish to know more about Maitreya Buddha please click here.

The image of Kuan Kong is highly recommended if you’re the head of a department. One of my previous post will help you know more about Kuan Kong.

The image of the ‘Great Sage, Equal of Heaven’ Sun Wukong also known as the Monkey King or Monkey God is good if you’re in marketing, advertising, sales, or any other field that needs a lot strategy making and creative thinking. To help you better understand why Sun Wukong is best for people whose career involves marketing, advertising, sales, and strategy making, do read my post about him by clicking here.
