Myth Buster 12: Pets Bring in Good Luck

Published Pebrero 9, 2013 by jptan2012

red poodleOk, I know this will raise some eyebrows. Am I contradicting my previous posts about having pets at home bringing in good Feng Shui? Read on and you’ll see what I’m trying to say.

Feng Shui consultants and experts always say that having pets at home brings in Yang energy that helps in ushering good Feng Shui luck. I’m personally guilty of saying that statement and I’ve done that several times in this blog.

However, an email from two separate readers jolted me from the reality that I, and other Feng Shui writers, consultants, and/or experts have been contributing to the myth that pets brings in good Feng Shui. The statement is not exactly wrong, but failing to clarify things and putting the full context created a myth.

Pets don’t bring in good Feng Shui. Happy, well taken care of, and balanced pets brings in good Feng Shui, any pets in general won’t do that.

I came to this realization when two of my readers emailed me about their pets. One said that she got a dog and was asking how soon will she see their good luck, and the other one emailed me asking whether their 2 rabbits that have been constantly biting each other will create some bad luck for them. These two readers are more concerned about the luck that their pets will bring in rather the welfare of the pets.

Please note that the primary reason of getting a pet shouldn’t be about Feng Shui, and neither it should be having a guard. Personally, I think it should be about trying to extend your love to another living being. For Buddhism, a pet or any living thing at that has a soul, and taking care of a pet is like taking care of the soul who had a bad karma of being born as a lesser being.

If boosting good Feng Shui is as simple as getting a pet, I would have gotten one a long time ago. However, I postponed it for a long time because I’m not sure whether I can properly take care of another living being. It’s a big responsibility. I know that if your dog is not happy, well taken care of, and/or balance, then not only they will not bring in good luck, but more negative karma are created because you then create a depress, imbalance dog with a lot of pent up energy.

So if you’re bigger concern is more about the good Feng Shui and/or the negative energy that you’re fighting pets are creating then you are on the wrong track. You’re concern for your personal luck shouldn’t be above another living being.

 

2013 Year of the Water Snake Essential Feng Shui Cure and Enhancer

Published Pebrero 8, 2013 by jptan2012

A few weeks ago, I wrote about this year’s general forecast base on the year’s BAZI and also a general forecast of the different animal zodiacs base on the Flying Star formula and Purple Flower Star Astrology.

Each sign would require a different Feng Shui cure and enhancer; however, I constantly received questions about what is the year’s most essential Feng Shui charm.

Today, I would like to make a short post about the year’s essential charm.

Windhorse or Lung-Ta with the 'Wish Fulfilling Jewel of Enlightenment' on its back. Please note that this is the Lung Ta or Wind Horse, just found out that some people try to sell of an ordinary image of an ordinary horse saying its a Lung Ta.

The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

Most if not all, would need the Lung Ta or Wind Horse. The only ones who really won’t need the Lung Ta are people with a complete and balance set of elements in their Bazi or Paht Chee. However, even if you have a complete set of elements, having a Lung Ta will still definitely be beneficial for you. The Lung Ta or Wind Horse is very good for wealth and career success.

When I decided to include the Lung Ta on the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT last year, I didn’t know that the it will be an essential charm this year.

Another important charm that is more of a Feng Shui cure is the Five Element Pagoda or the Kalachakra. This is because the Five Yellow Star of the Flying Star runs to the center and everybody is affected. We all must wear either a Five Element Pagoda or a Kalachakra all through out the year, if possible 24/7. One will do, but I personally have both because I’m wearing both the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, which has the 5 – Element Pagoda, and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, which has the Kalachakra.

Lastly, it will be beneficial for everybody to invite by wearing a pendant (preferably made of gold), and by putting an image in his or her home and office a Deity or Buddha. I highly recommend the image of Kuan Yin, Kuan Kong, Sun Wukong, Yellow Dzambhala or Maitreya Buddha (Happy Buddha).

This is from my personal collection. The reason I love this pendants so much is because it has a inscription of the Heart Sutra at the back. I wear the smaller one everyday.

In choosing a Kuan Kong it's important that you look at the face. The 'braver' the face the better. Also, I prefer dark colored stones or gold Kuan Kong, because Kuan Kong is basically a red face god. I veer away from the white jade variety. Photo lifted from Google images.

There are other Feng Shui cures or enhancers that may be important for you this year depending on your animal sign, however, if you can get only a few, get the ones mentioned here.

The Curious Case of A Powerful Relationship Thai Amulet!

Published Pebrero 7, 2013 by jptan2012

Again, it’s been a while since I’ve written something. After I came back from Thailand to get the Jatukam Amulets and for my much-needed spiritual trip, I never had the opportunity to properly write anything again.

I promise to do more writing in the coming days.

However, for now I would like to write about the curious case of a powerful relationship Thai amulet handed to me by a monk.

Before anything else, allow me to share that my trip to Thailand has been a very fulfilling trip but it also saddened me a little because I found out from my friends and contacts in Thailand that there is a proliferation of fake Thai amulets. This is because most Thai amulets are quite pricey, a lot of scrupulous businessmen decided to take advantage of this situation and decided to manufacture amulets y the bulk and sell it to the public at low cost. Sometimes, these fake amulets, according to my Thai friends, are even more beautiful and are ‘properly stamped’ with a trace number to give it a more ‘genuine’ feels that people do fall for it and believe that they are really authentic. It seem not to occur to the buyers that it is very unlikely that the monks will have the technology and capability to stamping of the control numbers, etc.

It is because of this that I’m unable to buy a lot of amulets, because I really have to be careful that I don’t get anything that’s fake. I’m just glad that friends who are also Feng Shui enthusiasts and are Buddhist are there to guide.

It is because of one of my Thai friends that I came to have a powerful relationship Thai amulet. However, my friend’s intention was not for us to get an amulet but to introduce me and my friends (from the Philippines) and cousin to a miraculous Buddhist image. I shall post about this miraculous Buddhist image soon.

My Thai friend brought us to this temple. Told us to pray to the image and as fate would have it a monk was giving a blessing at that time. So my friends, cousin, and I took this opportunity to get some blessing from the monk.

The curious this is that after our group got our blessing, the monk informed us that he was able to discern from the incense that we lighted that two people from our group will benefit from some very rare amulets, that has been with him for a little more than 35 years. He said, which was interpreted to us by my Thai friend, that his ‘master’ or teacher, a monk who passed away 35 years ago made the amulets.

The monk said, his teacher told him to keep the amulets for 30 years under the image of the Buddha, and after that for him to ‘dispose’ of the amulets to temple goers who may benefit from them.

They were 8 different amulets that were made at the same year. The amulets are powerful amulets for Health, Wealth, Relationship (Love), Family, Witchcraft, Protection from Ghosts, Karma Cleansing, and Grave Ill Health. Except for the amulet for health, wealth, and relationship (love), all the other amulets were already pass on to temple goers whose incense smoke indicated that they should be receiving the amulets.

Now we were told that 2 people from our group would be receiving two of the remaining amulets. I was a little skeptical at first, because we have to make donations to the temple in exchange for the amulets. The amount was a little high. But after some ritual, it was discern by the monk that I should be receiving the amulet for health and that a friend should be receiving the amulet for wealth. I was really surprised by his accuracy because I know for a fact that base on my Bazi I should be very careful about my health for the next few years. Furthermore, the reason my friend join me for this trip in Bangkok, is because one of their business is not doing so well, and he needs fund to put up a bigger capital to save the business.

While preparing for the final blessing of the amulets that we got, the monk approached us again and said that I should be getting the other amulet as well. He was referring to the amulet for relationship (love). I was a little surprised because I’m not in a relationship and not really looking into getting into one. I voiced this to the monk through my friend. But the monk responded that somebody I know would need the amulet. It occurred to me that my sister who is married might need it, so I got the amulet for her. However, the more I think about it the more I got certain that I made a mistake because I think my sister is in a good relationship with her husband.

However, as soon as I came back, a reader who was planning to get the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant, called me to inform me that she’s having a problem with her partner. I didn’t put two and two together at that time, and assured her that the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant might work for her.

Nevertheless, as fate would have it, every time she was trying to send money for the pendant, she’ll encounter problems that will prevent her from sending the money. In the process, she started calling me more often to share with me about her problems with her partner. In one of our conversations, I felt that her problem was so grave that only a very powerful amulet will work for her. That was my ‘aha’ moment. That’s when I realize that the amulet may be for her.

This is the amulet that's for relationship luck. It's made of clay, but inside are some special prayers and powerfull ingredients.

I informed her about it, but she seems to be unenthusiastic about it, and is bent on just getting the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant. I took this as a sign that the amulet is not for her. However, when I did an MO or oracle, it indicated that she really would benefit from the amulet that I got in Thailand. I then mentioned this to her again, and this time she became more receptive, and more than that when she tried to send the money, there was almost no problem.

The last time I talked to her, she’s already wearing the amulet. I’m very positive that she’ll really benefit from the amulet!
