Tips to Cure Bad Chi that Affects Family Relationship

Published Marso 3, 2012 by jptan2012

I decided to write this post because of a reader who recently consulted me about her relationship with her mom. They know they love each other but they also fight a lot. K, the reader, was one of the first readers of this blog who contacted me through email requesting that her BAZI be read. It took me a few weeks before I was able to deliver her BAZI analysis. One of her primary reason of wanting her chart to be read is because she just recently went through a major change in her life and also she became a little worried because she read that this might be a bad year for people born under the sign of the Dragon. K is a Dragon.

K’s BAZI chart showed that she might have some relationship problems with her mom. It’s nothing that both of them want or seek, but it’s simply because it was destined to be that way, to further aggravate this her mom was born under the year of the Dog, which totally contradicts the Dragon.

K confirmed the BAZI analysis as shown on her BAZI chart. If we’ve seen K’s BAZI when she was younger, the remedy could have been asking her mom to let K call her another term for mother, other than what she’s usually addressed by the other children. For example, if her children call the mom Mama, K could just call her mommy or mom.  If she’s called Mommy, K can just call her mom, mama, or even Inay. That’s one of the simplest cure for relationship problem that has something to with the BAZI or fate.

Also knowing about this earlier in their life could have prepared the mom to work harder with their relationship. This is one problem that really has to be addressed on as early as possible, it’s harder to ‘heal’ the wounds that has been repeatedly wounded several times through the years. However, it’s useless ‘crying over spilled milk’, Feng Shui is useless unless one is able to solve a ‘problem’.

Nevertheless, I have to admit that relationship problems specially one that is deeply rooted in the BAZI, which is destined as dictated by one’s birth date, is the ‘hardest’ to work on. But knowing that these arguments are caused by other than one’s personality is a first step in trying to tone down the bad chi brought about by fate. Secondly, one really has to be more patient with each other.

If you’re experiencing relationship problems with any of members of your family, regardless of whether it’s karmic or not, do the first two steps I just mentioned. Then, you can also do the following Feng Shui tips and/or Taoist and Buddhist rituals to help address the bad chi or energy that’s causing the disharmony.

SIX CRYSTAL BALLS IN THE LIVING ROOM. Placing six smooth crystal balls in the living room will help create harmony within the family. If possible, get a crystal ball that has some symbolic script on them, because this helps enhance the ‘power’ created by the good Feng Shui created by putting the crystal balls. If possible, use real crystal balls, but because this can get quite expensive, you can get two natural crystal balls and the rest can be made of glass. However, never ever get anything that’s made of plastic. Any color will do and they don’t have to be of the same size and color.

RECITE THE PRAJNAPARAMITA MANTRA. I’ll discuss more about the Prajnaparamita Mantra and its Sutra in one of my future posts but right now what’s important is to understand that this mantra is a powerful mantra that helps actualize harmony within the home or anywhere where this mantra is recited. If possible, recite this mantra in the living room or in the center of the house. If the affected parties are staying in the same bedroom, then reciting this in the bedroom is also good. For utmost effectiveness, recite one full mala (one full mala is 108 times) five times a day. You can recite all the five full mala at one time, but it’s best if it’s spread throughout the day. The PRAJNAPARAMITA MANTRA is – TADYATHA OM GATE GATE PARAGATE PARASAMGATE BODHI SOHA. (Note on Pronunciation: GATE is pronounced as GA – short A and TE as Tay – sounds like long A or the English word TAIL without the L).

Symbolic Script of the Prajnaparamita Mantra. The actual script reads GATE GATE PARAGATE PARASAMGATE BODHI SOHA. However, when reciting the mantra one needs to add TADYATHA OM, making the full mantra TADYATHA OM GATE GATE PARAGATE PARASAMGATE BODHI SOHA. One can also print several copies of the symbolic script of the Prajnaparamita Mantra and fold it and put in inside a red cloth. Then give one each to all affected members of the family.

SUN POWER TO CLEANSE NEGATIVE ENERGIES. Regularly cleanse your mattress, pillows, and blankets from negative energies. These are the things that we use in the evening, and we leave an energy imprint on them, they are also seldom exposed to direct natural Yang energy, thus it becomes Yin energy, this in turn may contribute to the negative energy that creates disharmony. Cleaning them with Sun Power is an effective way of infusing some Yang energy on them. You can do this every 2 weeks, bring out the mattress, clean blankets and pillows and expose them to direct sunlight. Preferably between 7 and 9 in the morning.

CLEAR CLUTTER. Clear all the clutter in the house. Clutters tend to create energy blockage, which in turn may also create disharmony among others.

Not an accurate depiction.

MOON AND PERFUMED WATER RITUAL. (1.) On an evening with a full moon, place a big bowl of water, make sure you use white colored bowl. While it should be full, make sure that it doesn’t spill. (2.) Leave the bowl of water under the moon from 7PM to 6AM the following day. (3.) Place 5 different flowers that has five different colors that represents the five elements. Red, pink, orange, purple flower for the fire element; white flower for the metal element; blue flower for the water element; green flower for the wood element; yellow flower for the earth element. The flowers will be put in the Moon energized water at 6AM the following day. (4.) Bring the water inside the house and if possible put it on your altar then say the PRAJNAPARAMITA MANTRA 108 times. If you don’t have an altar just bring it in the living room or at the center of the house. (5.) After saying the full mala of PRAJNAPARAMITA MANTRA, blow on the water. (6.) Then put a pinch of salt and a pinch of saffron the water. In the absence of water one can also use any other ordinary scented oil. Almond or Vanilla are also very good. Florida Water may be use also. (7.) Sprinkle the water in the living room, and in the bedrooms of the affected members of the family. (8.) Leave some of the water to be mixed in the bath water of the affected members of the family. About one tablespoon per person will do.

Heaven, Earth, Mankind: The Holy Trinity of Luck

Published Marso 3, 2012 by jptan2012

Is Feng Shui everything?

It’s easy to simply focus on Feng Shui because its mysticism is quite alluring but more than that it’s really comforting and easy to rely with something that we can buy or with something that we can simply adjust. However, Feng Shui is not everything. Feng Shui is not the only thing that affects our luck…our destiny. The truth is Feng Shui is simply 1/3 of the equation. There are other factors that governs our destiny our life.

The three factors that determine our fate are the HEAVEN, EARTH, AND MANKIND LUCK, which is also called the HOLY TRINITY OF LUCK. The word luck here might be a little misleading or limiting, because, without the prefix bad, we usually associate luck with good things. LUCK here refers to either bad luck or good luck.

Each of the Holy Trinity of Luck all affects our destiny and as you will see after reading my explanation of each luck they are all interconnected with each other.

HEAVEN’S LUCK is something that is dictated by our birth and maybe the least of the 3 lucks that can be controlled. If you’ve been reading my blog, you now more or less understand that the principles of BAZI or Feng Shui states that our birth determines what kind of luck we’ll have or what kind of relationships are we going to have with our family and friends. In fact, it even defines our personality and character. Furthermore, it defines where we’re born, when we’re born, what kind of family we’re born into.  So this is something that’s beyond control, and this already dictates 1/3 of your life luck and may be hard to change. However, another school of thought states that our Heaven’s Luck is actually determined by our karma created in our past lives. This may be a little controversial for people who don’t believe in reincarnation, but Buddhism and Taoism both states that we do in our past life of past lives affects our present life, in the same manner, whatever we do now will have an effect on our Heaven’s Luck in our future life.

Also, in Buddhism, Heaven’s Luck refers to the intervention of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, thus the need to recite mantras, read and/or carry the Sutras, make offerings of incense, offerings of flowers, water, and food, etc.

The Taoist has a slightly different view regarding this matter, they believe praying to Taoist Gods, Deities, and Immortals can only bring so much help. Taoist believe that Taoist Gods can only help us up to the extent that is allowed by the luck determined by one’s Heaven’s Luck. Meaning, the power of Taoist Gods are not infinite when it comes to changing one’s karma. Our past deeds will have the final say as to the 1/3 Heaven’s Luck we have.

EARTH LUCK is Feng Shui. Most of you who have been reading my blog now will have basic understanding of how Feng Shui works, so I really won’t discuss EARTH LUCK here. However, I would like to say that we still don’t have full control of this because the truth is, although I really haven’t discuss it further on this blog, is that Feng Shui of our homes, office, neighbors, or personal Feng Shui are not the only Feng Shui that affects us. To a certain extent Feng Shui of the city, the province, the country and its relation to its location affects us also. As you will see this is also partly due to our Heaven’s Luck.

MANKIND LUCK is the thing that we may be able to totally control, but also more often than not it’s the thing that we neglect most. Mankind Luck refers to our thoughts, words, and actions that all create an immediate karma that also contributes to our over-all luck.  Furthermore, Mankind Luck basically refers to our everyday decision and course of actions on things that we do about every day matters like how we act or react on things done to us by our relatives, friends, colleagues, boss, or clients. It also refers on the things that we do on to ourselves, or on decisions regarding our work or business or career. Some Feng Shui teachers state that Mankind Luck is also defined by the actions of the people who surround us.

As you will notice these three lucks is not a stand-alone luck. They all work hand in hand. You might have a really bad Heaven’s Luck but because you practice good Feng Shui and create good MANKIND LUCK by creating good karma and by working hard you already have a 2/3 chance of a better life.

On the other hand, you can have very good Heaven’s Luck and may not be practicing good Feng Shui and/or continuously create bad Mankind Luck by being lazy or doing bad things. You would have obviously wasted your Heaven’s Luck.

In the same manner, you could be energizing your Earth’s Luck with good Feng Shui, however, you really have a bad Heaven’s Luck and continuously to create bad Mankind Luck by being lazy or pessimistic or by creating bad Karma. Then obviously Feng Shui won’t do anything long term or worthwhile for you. You would have negated all the good Feng Shui you created.

Furthermore, if you were to subscribe to the belief of karma and reincarnation, Mankind Luck will also have great effect on Heaven’s Luck. In the same manner that practicing good Feng Shui like what was suggested in my previous post about the Cicada will also help ensure a good rebirth, which is Heaven’s Luck.

I guess, what I’m trying to say is simple. Feng Shui works, but you need to work also. Furthermore, have faith in your God whatever religion you may have.
