2013 Year of the Wood Horse Feng Shui Forecast for the Different Career & Business Industries Base on their Ruling Element

Published Disyembre 31, 2013 by jptan2012

It’s been a very hectic month and again I almost barely had time to write anything, much more to respond to emails.

Today, I would like to do a Feng Shui forecast for the different industries base on their ruling element. But before anything else please note that we are still within the year of the Snake and that Year of the Horse will not officially start until January 31, 2014.

Each industry is ruled by a certain element. It can be fire, water, earth, metal, or wood. Whether the industry will do well or not can be forecast by looking at its relation to the year’s bazi. If you’re an employee you must always look at your main industry and also look at the job description and look for its corresponding element. That will determine your basic luck for the year.

fireFIRE ELEMENT INDUSTRY (Beauty Parlor, Salon, Café, Computer, Cooking, Electronic, Stock Market, Entertainment, Engineering, Energy, Firework, Food Processing, Gas Station, Oil Company, Laser (anything that involves it), Lighting, Movie, TV, Photography, Restaurant, Semi – Conductor, and other things that involves light or heat.)

The year’s Bazi or Paht Chee shows a high content of the fire element, and this is good for all the fire element industries. However, this also may cause steep competition.

People who are in the Fire Element Industry will do well to always wear the image of The Great Sage, Monkey King – Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong.

 

metalMETAL ELEMENT INDUSTRY (Jewelry, Mining, Appliance like TV, Airline, Computer Hardware, Medical Equipment, Internet Network, Machinery, Manufacture, Mechanical, Military, Musical Instruments, Technology, Transportation Equipment like cars, bike, ship; Video Games)

This is going to be a very good stable year with growth potential. However, the automobile industry, which needs the water element might find themselves in a constant struggle. People in this industry will need to work a little harder for them to achieve their full potential.

People who are in the Metal Element Industry will do well to always wear something that enhances the metal energy, which is an earth power. Wearing an image of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or gemstones specially jade and/or citrine. Avoid wearing red gemstones.

 

woodWOOD ELEMENT INDUSTRY (Books, Publishing, Clothing, Fabric, Forestry, Furniture, Plantation, Agriculture, Plants and Flowers, Landscaping, Herbal or Natural Medicine, Library, Paper, Wood Craft, Pet Shop, Botanical Shop, Art, and any other creative industry)

You’ll see yourself with a very wide opportunity, however, because the year’s bazi is sorely lacking of water, people involve in this business or industry will feel that they are unable to fill in the space or grab the opportunity. It is important for people in the said industry to be constantly on the look out on how to enhance themselves or the industry itself.

It is advisable for people involve in the industry to carry or wear a Victory Banner and wear an image of Kuan Kong or Sun Wukong. Also if possible display an image of Maitreya Buddha in your office or home.

 

earthEARTH ELEMENT INDUSTRY (Architecture, Antique Shops, Ceramics, Design, Farming, Fortune Telling, Funerals, Marble work, Real Estate, Pottery, Building Construction, Hotels, Sculpture, and any other work that involves earth, soil, rock, or land.)

This year’s bazi is sorely lacking of the earth element. People who are in these industries need to be creative and aggressive. This might be a very challenging year. Condo high-rise buildings that are spouting everywhere in the country might face some problems, unless the developer has a very deep pocket.

 

waterWATER ELEMENT INDUSTRY (Fishing, Advertising, Chemical, Delivery, Education, Courier Service, Laundry, Entertainment, Media, Medicine, Online Business, Blogging, Public Relations, Travel, Banking, Alcohol or Alcoholic Business, Creativity)

Again, the year’s bazi shows that the water element is sorely lacking thus it indicates that the businesses under the Water Element Industry will face a challenging year. It will be better to make smaller steps because big projects might not come into fruition. Be aggressive on the first half of the year, because the second half is going to be worse.

Normally, the best advice for people who are involve in this industry to create a water feature or for them to wear blue. However, this might be bad for some people because of their own personal basket of elements. However, wearing an image of Kuan Yin combined with the image of Yellow Dzambhala or White Dzambhala, plus a Lung – Ta or Windhorse should help.

You’ll notice that at this age and time some industries cannot be defined under just one element. For example, landscaping which is a wood industry can also be classified under the earth element and it is further complicate by the fact that it involves a lot of creativity, which is both a wood and water element industry. Also, for example, you’re in the advertising, technically speaking it is a water element industry. However, advertisers now also makes use of research and computers so there is a cross over between fire and wood industry and a little of metal. You shouldn’t get confused about this because all you have to do is look at what is your main industry element and see how you work on it to see how it involves other elements. For example, while advertising is bad this year, but because your form of advertising involves a lot of the fire element then it compensates for the weak water element.

2014 Year of the Wood Horse Chinese Animal Zodiac Feng Shui Forecast Base on the Year’s Bazi, Flying Star, and 24 Mountain Star

I have been receiving a lot of emails asking for the 2014 Feng Shui forecast base on the Chinese Astrology. This year regardless of your Chinese zodiac or animal astrology success will be at hand. Some easier than others, but the common factor is you have to be aggressive. Work in humility but remember a silent worker is not somebody who will be recognized this year, thus complete success is not for them as well.

Love luck is also strong for all animal sign. However, this may not necessarily be a good thing, because this could also mean that for some who are already in a relationship, might find themselves with a third party getting involve. For those who are single, while you might find yourself in a relationship, it may also mean that you may be a third party in a relationship. It can also mean that more people might go obsessed with another person. To enhance the good effects of this energy, one can wear an image of a pair of mandarin ducks, or the double happiness sign. For those who are in a relationship already, it will help to get yourself a Nine – Ring Sword (the sword carried by Kuan Kong), or an image of White Tara. This may be hard to find, so having the seed syllable TAM, which is the seed syllable of the all permutations of Goddess Tara will also help, another thing that may help is for you to get an image of a rooster with fan.

Scholastic luck is also good for most animal signs. This means that in all endeavors, its better if it backed by research or solid data. This coupled with a strong instinct or gut feel are useful tools to ensure financial and career success.

Also a lot of you have been emailing me complaining me about having the need to replace your Feng Shui cure every year. This is why I design the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT and the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT because I don’t want to have to replace or worry about what to wear every year. If you want to know more about it please just click here and here.

Let us now go to the individual signs.

 

RAT

This is going to be a busy year for you; you’re lucky to have the Flying Star #9 which is also known as the Multiplying and Future Prosperity Star. This would mean that all your good deeds will easily reaped good karma also. However, please remember bad deeds will also reap bad karma. You will also have good opportunities this year, however, you have to be vigilant and grab opportunity by the horn. Unfortunately, you also have the 3 Killings, but there’s no need to worry about this because simply being busy helps manage the Three Killings.

You are also directly across the Tai Suey or the Grand Duke, which is the god of the year. This might create some problem. But no need to worry, simply wearing an image of the Pi Yao (also known or spelled Piyao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu) or the Lung – Ta or Wind Horse will help appease the Tai Suey.

Using the 24 Mountains computation shows that you also have the Natural Disaster star so it is best to be careful especially in the evening.

Recommendations:

To manage the #9 Flying Star: Symbolic script of the Immediate & Light Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra – OM AH HUM or of the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra – OM HANU PASHA BHARA HEYE SOHA

To manage the 3 Killings: Three Celestial Guardians or images of 3 Different Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Immortals, or Deities

To manage or appease the Grand Duke or Tai Suey: Pi Yao (the 3 Celestial Guardians has the image of the Piyao so it should do already) or the Lung – Ta or Windhorse.

To manage the Natural Disaster Star: Kalachakra Pendant or an image of Kuan Kong (also spelled as Guan Gong).

Always get a Pi Yao pendant that has an active stance.

OX

People born under the sign of the Ox are quite lucky this year. In fact, this is one of the luckiest Chinese Animal Zodiac of the year. I would like to say weirdly lucky, this is because if you look at the flying star that dominates you’re sector at the moment, you’ll see the #7 Flying Star which is the Violent Star. Initially speaking this should mean that this is a bad year for you, however, you’ll have to know that because of the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee combined with #2 Flying Star that goes to the East sector, which is also normally a bad star, creates Ho Tu 2/7 which creates some good luck for you. This means you will have great success luck. However, you have to be careful in going out in the evening and you have to be careful about people stealing your ideas and or backstabbing you.

Wealth luck is generally very good to most Ox born people. But because of the Yearly Killings and the Yin House of the 24 Mountain Stars, you will have to be careful about getting into arguments and also as already mentioned about people backstabbing you and furthermore about theft. Furthermore, while money luck might come easy you have to watch out about how you spend them.

Recommendations:

To enhance success luck wears an image of the Victory Banner or the Lung – Ta or Windhorse.

To enhance wealth luck wears an image of the Gold Ingot or a Three Legged Toad or an image of Maitreya Buddha or an image of Yellow Dzambhala.

To manage getting backstabbed a theft you can wear a Kalachakra Pendant or Kuan Kong with the Nine Ring Sword.

Banner of Victory Pendant

Banner of Victory Pendant

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.

TIGER

Despite of the Double Yearly Conflict and Yin House brought about by the 24 Mountains Star, 2014 Year of the Wood Horse should bring you a lot of money or wealth luck. But like the Ox you should be careful of getting backstabbed and theft. Also do your best to keep a low profile.

While there may be new beneficial relationships for you this year, you need to be careful that these relationships don’t get sour. However, you need to remember to watch out for your health, because you are afflicted with the illness star. On top of it, because of the Double Yearly Conflict and the Yin House, it’s best to avoid going to cemeteries, funerals, and/or hospitals.

Recommendations:

To further enhance your wealth luck you can carry or wear an image of the Maitreya Buddha aka Happy Fat Buddha or Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong or Yellow Dzambhala.

To manage souring a beneficial relationship it’s best to carry either the Ksitigarbha Fireball or the Nine Ring Sword or an image of Kuan Kong.

To manage your health wears an image of the Medicine Buddha or the symbolic script of the Mantra of the Medicine Buddha or the Holy Gourd.

To manage the Double Yearly Conflict and the Yin House of the 24 Mountains Star wears an image of the Kalachakra.

RABBIT

You have to be very careful about your health. If you can only do one Feng Shui enhancement or cure this year, then you’ll have to focus on your health because you have the illness star. You also have to be careful because the illness star can also bring in some accidents that might lead to long term or major health problems.

But nevertheless, be happy that even if you have the Yearly Conflict of the 24 Mountains Star, you also have the Big Auspiciousness and the General Luck Star. This means as long as you manage your health, you’ll still see yourself achieving the things that you set out to do. On the side, you also have to watch out for getting into arguments.

Recommendations:

To manage the Illness Star or #2 Flying Star you have to wear an image of the Medicine Buddha or the symbolic script of the Mantra of the Medicine Buddha. If possible, chant one full male (108 times) a day the Mantra of the Medicine Buddha. It is also highly advisable to put on both sides of your bed a Metal Wulou or Holy Gourd. Also it will be nice if you can donate blood on the 2nd month of the lunar calendar and continuously involve yourself in charitable works.

To enhance the Big Auspiciousness and General Luck Star you can wear an image of Kuan Kong and partner it the Victory Banner or Lung Ta. Kuan Kong will also manage and prevent you from getting into arguments.

DRAGON

Dragon born people are by nature quite impatient and hotheaded, but don’t surprised if it becomes worst this year. The #3 Flying Star also known as the Argumentative Star, this is further strengthen by the Yi Duo of the 24 Mountain Star. So take care of your temper and always try to watch your words. Remember, if something can be amicably settled, then settle because if you go to court, chances are you’d be at the losing end.

While money luck is good, personal success will need a little push, this is because of the combined influence of the Big Auspiciousness Star and the Yin House of the 24 Mountain Star.

Recommendations:

To manage the Argumentative Star and the Yi Duo, it’s best to wear as a pendant an image of Kuan Kong with the Nine Ring Sword. A Ksitigarbha Fireball will also be a powerful tool to fight the combine effect of the #3 Flying Star and the Yi Duo.

Also, to enhance money luck wears an image of either the Maitreya Buddha also known as Happy Fat Buddha or Sun Wukong or Yellow Dzambhala. A White Dzambhala will be very good as well.

Lastly to manage the Yin House, you can either wear an image of Kuan Yin or wear a Kalachakra pendant.

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.

SNAKE

While wealth luck for you is going to be good, you have to be careful and manage your temper. You might get into a lot of fight. There will also be a number of small obstacles that with perseverance can be managed.

Nevertheless, you need to know that there will be a lot of people who will come along your way to help you succeed. This is due to the Heaven Seal of the 24 Mountain Star.

However, you also need to watch out for your health, so make sure you don’t engage in any dangerous activities but at the same time make sure that you get some rest.

Remember, success should be easy for you if you look pass the possible obstacles. You are also in side conflict with the Grand Duke or Tai Suey so take to mind to appease him by carrying or wearing an image of the Pi Yao and/or Lung – Ta which is also known as the Windhorse.

Recommendations:

To enhance wealth luck you can wear either an image of the Yellow Dzambhala or Kuan Kong or Maitreya Buddha also known as the Happy Fat Buddha.

To help manage the small obstacles it will be good to wear an image of Kuan Yin / Avalokitesvara or simply carry or wear a Lung – Ta.

To help manage your possible health problems, carry a Wu Lou or wear an image of the Medicine Buddha.

HORSE

Humility is the key to your success this year. Remember that Tai Suey or Grand Duke resides on your sector this year, thus it is very important to always be humble, do good deeds to others and constantly appease him with either the Piyao or the Lung – Ta or Windhorse. You are also facing the 3 Killings and as I mentioned this is something that can be appease with the 3 Celestial Guardians or 3 different images of either a Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity or Immortal.

But do not despair, because you actually have one of the best Flying Star on your sector, the #8 Flying Star which is also know as the Wealth Star. This is somehow tempered by the fact that this is also year and as I mentioned your year is also your bad year. But this will manifest in terms of your drive. You somehow feel that you are drained off life’s energies.

Recommendations:

To appease Tai Suey carry or wear an image of the Piyao or Lung – Ta. It will be nice also if you can continuously engage yourself with charitable works.

To manage the 3 Killings, as mentioned, you can carry an image of the Three Celestial Guardians or wear 3 different images of a Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity or an Immortal.

To enhance the #8 Flying Star you can wear an image of Kuan Yin, or Kuan Kong or Yellow Dzambhala or one of the three major Buddhas namely Amitabha Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha, and Medicine Buddha.

SHEEP or GOAT

This is a very good year for you. Aside from having the #1 Flying Star called White Victory Star you also blessed by the #8 Flying Star. You are one of the luckiest animal sign of the year. On top of that, you also have the Golden Deity of the 24 Mountain Star and while you’re afflicted with Yearly Conflict, it is very manageable.

Love luck is going to be good for you this year, and wealth luck is simply astounding, not to mention that you can be very successful.

Recommendations:

To enhance your luck, its recommended for you to wear an image of Kuan Kong or Maitreya Buddha or Sun Wukong preferably in gold as it will serve as an offering to the Golden Deity of the 24 Mountain Star. Furthermore, carrying the image or having the Victory Banner or Windhorse will also help ensure that your luck is further energized!

 

 

MONKEY

This year the reading for people born in the year of the Monkey is not so straightforward as compared to the other Chinese Animal Zodiacs. Technically speaking you are quite lucky this year specially for those who have their own business and are involve in stocks. However, you are afflicted on both sides with Yearly Conflict or Affliction and this combined with the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee makes this year of the Wood Horse a little complicated.

Although karma always has a role to play in our lives, it is rarely that a year’s forecast will be greatly affected by the previous year’s performance of the Monkey. I hope I’m writing this clearly because it is quite difficult to explain this.

Technically speaking, the Monkey should have a great year aside from some petty obstacles brought about by the Yearly Conflict of the 24 Mountain Star formulas, which flanks the Monkey sector on both sides, which greatly affects your health and makes success quite difficult to achieve. However, you have very good wealth luck. So this means that personal success and career growth may be difficult to get but business luck is quite good.

But here’s the thing. Your luck this year is highly influenced by the karma you sow last year. As mentioned everything that happens to us is either destined by fate, by Feng Shui, and by our immediate karma but it is quite rare that our immediate karma will greatly influence the luck for the year. This year such is the case for people born under the sign of the Monkey.

Needless to say, if you created bad things in 2013, in 2014 the year of the Wood Horse you’ll reap all those bad karma that you sow. The influence of your 2013 deeds to your 2014 life is really big. The good thing is that you have the Golden Deity of the 24 Mountain Star that will enhance good karma or lessen the impact of your bad karma.

Recommendations:

To enhance the #1 Flying Star it is recommended that you wear the Victory Banner or the Lung – Ta or Wind Horse.

For your health carrying a Wu Lou or Holy Gourd or wearing a the image of the Medicine Buddha or the symbolic script of the Mantra of the Medicine Buddha as a pendant should be able to prevent or counter acting the bad illness chi.

For those who are in business praying and carrying the images of the following Bodhisattva or Deities or Immortals should help. They are Sun Wukong, Kuan Kong, Maitreya Buddha or the Happy Fat Buddha.

For those who are employed, again having the Victory Banner or the Lung – Ta should help. Also wearing the image of Kuan Kong should do a lot of help.

To manage your karma, you can wear a gold or jade pendant of the image of Kuan Yin the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Wearing the symbolic script of the Light Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra, OM AH HUM, and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra – OM HANU PASHA BHARA HE YE SOHA, should help ease some of the negative karma.

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.

ROOSTER

While you have wealth and success luck, this might be greatly hampered by the fact that you may feel really weak or without energy. Furthermore, you have to watch out for possible controversy or reputation problems with your life. This is largely cause by the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee which is further strengthen by the 2 Yearly Conflict and Energy Reducer of the 24 Mountain Star. The good thing is the #6 Flying Star is on your sector also and this should give you some help from Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities or Immortals.

Recommendations:

To enhance wealth luck wears the image of Yellow or White Dzambhala or Kuan Kong.

To enhance your success luck you need to enhance your Wind Horse luck by wearing an image of the Lung – Ta or Windhorse. Further strengthen this with the image of Kuan Kong (also spelled or known as Guan Gong, Kuan Ti, Guan Ti) or Victory Banner.

To help deal with Yearly Conflict and Energy Reducer of the 24 Mountain Star you can wear a Kalachakra pendant or an image of Kuan Yin.

It is always beneficial to wear an image of the Kuan Yin but for this year it’s good to also wear the The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra also called The Heart Sutra.

My Kuan Yin pendant has the The Heart of Prajna Paramitra Sutra. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to look for this kind of pendant.

DOG

I don’t want to be a pessimist, and I always believe that Feng Shui is so wonderful because it gives us the chance to remedy the problems brought about by the year’s Bazi or Flying Star or 24 Mountain Star.

Sad to say, you might have a challenging year ahead of you. This is largely due to the 5 Yellow Star that runs into your sector. You and people born under the sign of the pig or boar who also have the Five Yellow Star will both have quite a tough year. For you the Yearly Conflict of the 24 Mountain Star further worsens this.

The best thing is to keep a low profile. Be aggressive when it comes to work but keep a low profile. You must totally veer away from getting into risk whether personal or career wise. Don’t do anything that was not carefully studied.

Your love and family luck is not very good as well. You might see a lot of arguments. If you’re not careful, you might have some money problems.

Recommendations:

For the Five Yellow Star it is highly suggested that you manage this by wearing a Kalachakra or a 5 – Element Pagoda. You can strengthen this by also wearing an image of Amitabha Buddha or Medicine Buddha.

Having the image of Kuan Yin will also help. If you can do get a prayer wheel or wear a sutra. The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra better known as The Heart Sutra will be very good.

Carry an image of the Ksitigarbha Fireball or Kuan Kong’s Nine Ring Sword to help counter the argument energy.

Further empower yourself with the Maitreya Buddha or Yellow Dzambhala (also spelled as Jambhala) and with the Wish Fulfilling Mantra. Energize your success luck with the Lung – Ta or Windhorse.

Amitabha Buddha

BOAR / PIG

Like people born under the sign of the Dog, you should also keep a low profile. This might be a challenging year for you. You further have to be careful about being robbed because of the Robbery Energy brought about by the 24 Mountain Star. Robbery here may mean actual robbery or people robbing you off your ideas or taking credits for the things that you did.

Your love or family luck is going to be a little better than that of the Dog but it is still going to be chaotic still.

Recommendations:

For the Five Yellow Star it is highly suggested that you manage this by wearing a Kalachakra or a 5 – Element Pagoda. You can strengthen this by also wearing an image of Amitabha Buddha or Medicine Buddha.

Having the image of Kuan Yin will also help. If you can do get a prayer wheel or wear a sutra. The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra better known as The Heart Sutra will be very good.

An image of Kuan Kong or the Kalachakra will help counter the robbery energy brought about by the 24 Mountain Star.

This is a miniature version of the Sutra of the Medicine Buddha and the Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra which is a sutra closely associated with Kuan Yin. There are a lot of this kind of sutras that printed really small so one can carry it as an amulet.

Please note that the things mentioned in this forecast are base on a generic forecast of the individual animal signs. It is still better to look at your individual luck through your Bazi or Paht Chee.

Front side of the WISH FULLFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING PENDANT

Also as mentioned in the beginning of this post, a lot of you are having problems because of having the need to wear so many things and having to check yearly what to wear. I used to have the same concern that’s why I decided to design for myself and for my family and friends a pendant called WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT. A lot of the cures or enhancers mentioned here are on the said pendant. My only frustration is I was unable to include the image of Kuan Yin; this is because when I design the pendant, and each and every member of my family wears a Kuan Yin pendant. The WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT is a pendant that you can wear regardless of the year because it has all the necessary cure and enhancers so there’s no need to replaced things. Even if you are not afflicted by a certain star, wearing it will simply continue help protect you.

If you wish to understand more about some of the cures mentioned on this post please just click on them:

2014 Year of the Wood Horse Bazi and Flying Star Feng Shui Forecast: An Imbalanced Chart that Creates an Abundance of Love War

Published Disyembre 12, 2013 by jptan2012

Once again it’s the time of the year where I’m busy with my business, because as early as now a lot of companies are doing their annual planning for the following year. But also, I have been receiving emails and text messages asking for my annual forecast, which I started 2 years ago.

Chinese New Year this year will usher in the Wood Horse, and this will show that this year those who are able to bring their positive traits will be the one who are likely to succeed. This doesn’t mean that one has to be flamboyant about their achievement, but neither it is a year to have ‘false’ humility. A silent worker who succeeds will not be recognized, but a hard worker who is able to humbly ‘show off’ his achievements will gain recognition.

Like last year, this year my forecast will include both the Bazi or Paht Chee, and at the same time the Flying Star. As regular readers of this blog will know forecast with the use of Flying Star is not as difficult as most Feng Shui experts would want us to believe. All you have to do is remember the Flying Star number, it’s effect, find out where it’s location for the year and that’s it, you’ll already know the effect.

Let’s start off with the Flying Star forecast. Like before we’ll start off with the East sector.

THE EAST HAS THE #2 FLYING STAR CALLED ILLNESS STAR

Effects: As the name implies, this star causes illness and to some extent it can be fatal or terminal. Sometime, this star can also cause some accidents that may make you invalid for a long time if not permanently. For this year, the star directly affects people born under the year of the Rabbit, and it might create some effect also with people born under the sign of the Tiger and Dragon. Technically speaking this should no longer affect people born under the sign of the Ox. However, due to the magnetic effects of some bad stars of the 24 Mountains calculation, this star will also greatly affect people under the sign of the Ox. People whose room is in the East section of their house should also take note. Furthermore, it will affect the eldest son or the only son of a family. The Flying Star #2 is also going to affect people whose house door faces East also.

Feng Shui Cure: The primary cure for the ILLNESS STAR is the Medicine Buddha. Wear an image of the Medicine Buddha as pendant or wear the symbolic script of the mantra of the Medicine Buddha to help counter the ill effects of the said star. Chanting the mantra of the Medicine Buddha is also a great way to manage the said star. Secondary cure is Wulou (also spelled as Wu Lou) or Holy Gourd. Please note that it is considered very disrespectful if you put an image of the Medicine Buddha in your room, so in this case one can put the Holy Gourd.

THE SOUTHEAST HAS THE #3 FLYING STAR CALLED THE ARGUMENTATIVE STAR

Effects: The Flying Star #3 also known, as the Argumentative Star is a star that causes relationship problem, numerous bickering, litigation problems, quarrels and problems/conflicts with people in authority. This year it will also greatly affect people born under the signs of the dragon and horse. And people whose room or office is in the Southeast section of the building or house. Not to mention, houses whose door faces the Southeast section will also encounter problems that were mentioned.

Feng Shui Cure: The best cures for this star are either the Ksitigarbha Fireball or the Nine – Ring Sword of Kuan Kong. The image of Kuan Kong is also a very good cure for this star. People affected by this star can wear or carry an image of the cures. The Maitreya Buddha also known as the Happy Fat Buddha is also a great help.

The Ksitigarbha Fireball is a pearl on the hand of  Ksitigarbha Buddha that fires up when there are negative energies.

THE SOUTH HAS THE #8 FLYING STAR CALLED WEALTH STAR BUT THE TAI SUEY ALSO GOES TO THE SOUTH SECTOR

Effects: This star is a very good star. It gives you abundance and to some a ‘bottomless’ pocket filled with money. This star is not just about money wealth but this is also for over – all abundance. This is a star ruled by the earth element that moved into a sector ruled by fire. Regular readers of this blog knows that earth is strengthen by the Fire element, and as we discussed the Paht Chee or Bazi of the year, you’ll know that we can find a strong fire element this year, so this is a star that is particularly strong this year. People born under the year of the horse, snake, and sheep will benefit from this star.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Faux gold Coins or Bars or Ingots should be place on this sector. Wear an image of a Wealth Deity like the Maitreya Buddha, Kuan Kong, or Sun Wukong.

Faux golld bars, ingots, and coins.

Sun Wukong aka Monkey God aka Pilgrim aka 'Great Sage, Equal to Heaven' is a very powerful wealth and protector god. He is one of the few deities worshipped both in Taoism (also spelled as Daoism) and Buddhism.

Sun Wukong aka Monkey God aka Pilgrim aka ‘Great Sage, Equal to Heaven’ is a very powerful wealth and protector god. He is one of the few deities worshipped both in Taoism (also spelled as Daoism) and Buddhism.

However, it should be noted that this year, the Tai Suey God is also in the South. It has to be noted that Tai Suey is not part of the Flying Star but we need to always take this into consideration because offending the Tai Suey will create a lot of bad luck.

The Taoists, where most of how we do Feng Shui originated, believes that a certain God called Tai Suey or Tai Sui or Grand Duke in English rules a year. This year’s Tai Suey God is General Zhang Ci. However, you have to understand a little about Taoist Gods for you to be able to understand why we have to be careful in dealing with the Tai Suey.

The 2014 Tai Suey God is General Zhang Chi.

The 2014 Tai Suey God is General Zhang Chi.

Taoist Gods are like humans with supernatural powers. They have magical and godly powers but they may also have human temperament and they also have characters and personalities. Meaning, they can get angry with our acts, they can be disturbed and get angry with us and thus render a punishment to us, or maybe the simple act of them getting irritated with us might create some misfortune. However, they can also be appease and happy with us and render us some good blessings, or again, the simple act of the Tai Suey getting happy with us will create some good fortune.

To help ensure that Tai Suey is happy with us always carry an image of the Pi Yao or Pi Xiu. This celestial animal will help appease the Grand Duke or Tai Suey. Another image that can help manage the Tai Suey God is to carry, display or wear an image of the Wind Horse or Lung Ta. People born in the year of the horse and rat, who are directly afflicted by the Tai Suey and Snake and Sheep who are in side conflict and Pig / Boar and Ox who are in semi – conflict with the Tai Suey should have either the Piyao or Lung – Ta. Also, if your door faces South, or if your bedroom and office is in the South you should also put the image of the Piyao or Lung Ta or Windhorse. People who are occupying the south also should wear or carry the image of the Piyao or Lung Ta.Piyao4

THE SOUTHWEST HAS THE #1 FLYING STAR CALLED WHITE VICTORY STAR

Effects: This star brings luck to your endeavors. It helps ensure your success. This year the White Victory Star also ensures that mothers will have a ruling power over their children.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Put in your bedroom or carry or wear one of the following images – Victory Banner, Lung – Ta or Wind Horse, Kuan Kong.

The Victory Banner is considered as one of the 8 Auspicious Object in Buddhism.

Furthermore, the Southwest also has the star of Golden Deity. So having gold colored Kuan Kong or Kuan Yin or Yellow Dzambhala in this sector (unless it’s a bedroom) will enhanced the energy of the White Victory Star. Also, wearing the image of Yellow Dzambhala, or Kuan Kong or Kuan Yin in gold will also help enhance the energy of the White Victory Star.

The biggest image of Kuan Yin in the world is in China.

There are several different forms or manifestations of Dzambhala (also spelled as Jambala or Dzambala). Dzambala is a Buddhism Wealth God. The one in the picture is the most common or most famous manifestation of Dzambhala which is the Yellow Dzambhala.

THE WEST HAS THE #6 FLYING STAR CALLED HEAVEN’S BLESSINGS AND MENTOR STAR

Effects: This star helps set the ‘tone’ of the year for people whose office, or room is in the West side of the house or building. Meaning, if you continuously do more good the more blessed you’re going to be. This also means that if you’re Chinese Animal Zodiac is not so good, you will have help from Heaven (Buddha, Bodhisattvas, Deities, Immortals, or Saints). This also means that you’ll be lucky enough to have people who will help you achieve your goal.

Feng Shui Enhancers: In your room or office put some crystal ball or 6 White Jade tied with a red string. People who are staying in this sector and people born in the year of the Rooster will do well if they invite an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity or Immortal by wearing their image as a pendant. I personally suggest one of the following: Kuan Kong, Avalokitesvara aka Kuan Yin, Maitreya Buddha aka Happy Fat Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha, Medicine Buddha, Yellow Dzambhala, Green Tara.

Goddess Tara is also known as Green Tara because of her green color.

THE NORTHWEST HAS THE #5 FLYING STAR OR THE DREADED FIVE YELLOW STAR

Effects: The 5 – Yellow Star is the worst of all negative stars! It’s the most dreaded star. It is said to bring 5 different kinds of misfortunes!

Feng Shui Cure: AGAIN! AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE MOVE OUT FROM THIS SECTION OR DON’T USE THIS SECTION. You can also use the Five Element Pagoda ( 5 – Element Pagoda ), or the Kalachakra. For people who stays in this section of the house or building and if you can’t move out of this sector, it is very important that you wear either the Kalachakra or the Five Element Pagoda. Furthermore, people born in the year of the Dog and Pig or Boar should also ensure that they wear either the Five Element Pagoda or the Kalachakra.

Five Element Pagoda

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.

It is because off this that I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol. The WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT has the image of the Kalachakra.

 

THE NORTH HAS THE #9 FLYING STAR CALLED THE MULTIPLYING AND FUTURE PROSPERITY STAR AND IT IS JOINED BY THE THREE KILLINGS

Effects: Technically speaking, this is neither a good or bad star. The power of this star is to let you reap whatever you sow. This star basically multiplies whatever karma you accumulate. If you do more good things you’ll have more good luck in the future, but if you continue to do a lot of bad things, you multiply your negative karma as well. The Rat is also affected by this star thus it will be good if he/she can be more conscious of the things he/she does.

Feng Shui Cure: Last year, I didn’t put any enhancer or cure recommendations because I want people to be more conscious about what they do. However, a reader told me that there are times that we simply, without intending to be bad, create some things that earn us negative karma. For this I highly recommend either the image of the Medicine Buddha or the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM or OM HANU PASHA BARA HE YE SOHA both of which are on the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

Front side of the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA'S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT

This year the Three Killings also found its way to the North. Unlike the Tai Suey or the Five Yellow Star, which we must avoid, the 3 – Killings is something that we must confront. Meaning, the best way to deal with it is to face the Three Killings and not turn our back against it. If the 3 Killings is not confronted then it can wreak three kinds of misfortunes to a person. The three misfortunes are accident, financial loss, and illness.

Another good way of dealing with the Three Killings is to place the image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity or Immortal in the North section of the room, house, office, and building. Those who are staying in the South or North section of their house, office, building, or room must wear an image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities or Immortals.

The Three Celestial Guardians are the Fu Dog, Chi Lin (also spelled as Qi Lin or Chilin or Chi Lin) and Piyao (also spelled or called Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu).

Three Celestial Guardinas consists of the Fu Dog, Pi Yao (Piyao), and Chi Lin (Chilin).

THE NORTHEAST HAS THE #7 FLYING STAR ALSO CALLED THE VIOLENT STAR

Effects: The star brings hostility and loss through robbery, theft, or even manipulation. This year it will greatly affect people under the sign of the ox and tiger.

Feng Shui Cure: One of the following items – Image of Sun Wukong (aka Monkey God), Image of Kuan Kong (also known as Kuan Ti, Guan Ti, Kuan Te Ya, Guan Te Ya, Guan Gong), Image Elephant with Rhinoceros. For people who are staying on this side have the house or office, or for people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger, it is advisable to wear an image of Sun Wukong, Kuan Kong, or a Mantra Pendant. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT that has the image of THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN – SUN WUKONG, and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT that has the image of Kuan Kong are also advisable.

Sun Wukong or The Great Sage Equal of Heaven (aka Monkey God, Monkey King, Victorious Fighting Buddha, Bimawen, Pilgrim) is a very powerful protector and wealth god. He is one of the few deities/buddha reverred both in Taoism and Buddhism. As far as I know this is the only Sun Wukong pendant made of real gold. Have been looking for one for quite some time because I know that Sun Wukong is both a wealth and protector god, however, I can't find any, not even in China, HK, Singapore, and Taiwan, so I decided to just make my own. If interested to get this pendant please email me at sanaakosirickylee@gmail.com .

THE CENTER HAS THE #4 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE SCHOLASTIC AND ROMANCE STAR

Effects: Romance luck is heightened if your room is on this side of the house. For single people, you might have the possibility of finding love. For partnered people, you might find your love getting more ‘fragrant’. However, for married couple the effect might be two fold. First, you might find yourself loving each other more deeply, but there might also be the possibility of a third party getting involved. It is also called Scholastic Star because it also has a good effect on the scholastic pursuits of a person. Meaning, students may become more studious, and professionals might find that it’s easier to understand documents. Since this stars goes to the center this year it affects all of us.

Feng Shui Enhancer: For single person you can put a Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks on your bedside. For married couple, you can hang the Double Happiness on your headboard. To safeguard yourself from a third party, tie an Amethyst Geode with Red String on the foot of your bed. You can also use the power of Green Tara to ensure that this star works for the positive only.

And like before, we should take into consideration the year’s Paht Chee or Bazi. This year’s Bazi shows an imbalanced chart. There are 4 Yang Fire elements, 3 Wood elements 2 of which are Yang, and 1 Yin Metal. It’s pretty obvious that earth and water elements are missing. The good news here is that the year pillar shows a productive cycle or relationship and that is of the Wood and Fire element. This means that for this year, it is those who are aggressive that will enjoy great amount of success.

However, the relationship of the elements in the Bazi also shows that there is a tendency for people to misunderstand each other and for people to enter a lot of arguments. Thus, we might see more fighting both on a personal level and on a larger scale. The Philippines and China Scarborough problem will continue. It might even escalate.

This also means that people who are diplomatic will also tend to shine. These are the sheep, rabbit, pig or boar and dog. In fact, if you want peace in the family, bring in images of dogs and better yet get a real dog but do this only if and only if you can take care of the dog properly and that you can ensure that he or she grows up a well-rounded dog. You can also get a rabbit, but ensure that you take care of it properly also.

People whose Bazi chart shows a lack of Fire and/or high Earth elements will also do well this year. It is important to note that although the year is lacking of water element, there is no need to enhance the water element. In fact, people with high water rating on their bazi will see themselves having some problems, unless, of course this is negated by having very low or lacking personal fire element.

For this year, it is highly advisable that we should all have at least some gemstones on our body. Wearing jade, amber, and / or other precious or semi – precious stones will help enhance the positive chi of the year and serves as a protection against the negative effects of an imbalanced chart.

If there’s something that one should really worry about this year is the love energy. The love energy doesn’t always mean it’s good because while it can create romantic luck, it can also create extra marital affairs. Arguments that may lead to litigation or irrevocable fight or even war is also quite strong force this year. The best Feng Shui cures to use against these are the Kalachakra and the image of Kuan Kong. Tapping into the loving energy of the Buddha of Compassion Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin and the healing energy of the Medicine Buddha are also powerful means to help counter the negative energy of that causes arguments.

Before I end this forecast, I would like to share that a lot of people are having some problems with the number of charms to wear and to keep track of the cures and enhancers that one has to wear to protect and enhance their Feng Shui. This is why I created, first, the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, which was followed by the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT feature SUN WUKONG, and has the images of the Three Celestial Guardians and the Ksitigarbha Fireball and Five Element Pagoda. While the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT features Medicine Buddha, Kuan Kong, Yellow Dzambhala, the Kalachakra, Victory Banner, Lung – Ta or Wind Horse, and the symbolic scripts of the mantra OM AH HUM, the mantra of the Medicine Buddha, the Wish Fulfilling and the Karma Cleansing Mantra with the seed syllable of the Goddess Tara. I designed the pendant to make sure that I don’t have to change the pendant every year. With the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT I don’t have to worry about the annual, monthly, or even the daily Flying Star. Since writing about it a lot of people has requested for the pendant, and my only frustration about it is that it is quite pricey.

Learning Some Valuable Lessons from A Reader and A Taxi Driver

Published Disyembre 5, 2013 by jptan2012

This has been a very good week for me. Aside from meeting another reader in person, I learned some valuable lessons.Lessons Learned

First, getting to meet one of my readers is really an experience that I value. It makes maintaining this blog so much worth it. This week I got the opportunity to meet a reader who happens to be a Filipino who lives in the US.

BM is a reader who contacted me about a year ago. Since she lives in the states, our communication has been limited to exchanging emails. However, she’s now in Manila for a short vacation and to take care of some documents.

I got the chance to meet BM and she requested me to read her Bazi. I don’t normally accept Bazi or Paht Chee readings these days. However, since BM is somebody who has contacted me about a year ago, I decided to take on her request. I’m glad I did!

BM is a person who doesn’t have any direct wealth. Meaning, she has every reason to become poor. She will never have any money that she’ll get out of luck or from her parents. However, her chart shows that while they may be some bumps along the road, she is destined to live a comfortable life in her old age. This is because BM works like a horse. She really works hard, and her chart shows how hard working she is. In fact, while she’ll definitely demure from the reality that she now has a good life, at least, so much better than most people, she has a comfortable life now because of how hard she worked for it.

I’m sharing this because I believe there’s a valuable lesson that each one of us can learn from her chart. Sometimes, fate is no match with our dedication and hard work. I think this is one of the important lessons I can impart to my readers. Let’s all learn from BM. A hardworking woman who is destined to have a good life.

Another valuable lesson that I learned this week is from a Taxi driver.

The other day, I was a little irritated that my driver got delayed. Since I have to rush to a meeting, I decided to take a cab. Little did I know that I’d learn a valuable lesson from a Taxi driver.

The driver strikes me as somebody who is overly cheerful. What’s more, unlike other taxi or cab drivers, he seem to notice only good things on the road, something that is really quite difficult to do if you drive on the streets of Manila. However, he seems to notice only the good things, like the simple thing that a boy was helping his grandmother (I’m just assuming this that they’re grandmother and grandson) cross the street. The drive said that it’s nice to see young ones still know how to take care of their elder and he seem so happy about it. Or like the homeless guy who takes care of his dog, to which he said that it’s really great that some people are so caring that even they don’t have anything they’re still willing to share whatever they have to another living thing. The guy he was referring to is a guy I see everyday and I haven’t thought of it that way. When I got to my destination, I gave him a twenty pesos tip. He again cheerfully expressed his gratitude and thanks me and said that it will add to his education fund for his children. Twenty pesos is a small amount, it’s a little less than US$0.50, and there was no sarcasm in his voice, he was really very appreciative. Because of that I gave him a bigger amount, a little bigger than my cab fare.

Again, I learned a valuable lesson. With all the good luck I’ve been receiving, I sometimes forget to be thankful with the little things that I get everyday.

Hard work, a grateful heart, and a cheerful predisposition are some of the most important Feng Shui charm or cure one can have in life. Maybe I’m pushing it a little, but maybe it is almost as good as having the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

NOTE: For those who haven’t received their Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras please email me again with the SUBJECT: FDRM. Have been really busy the past few weeks and my file got really disorganized. Apologies for this.

In – Laws Causing Marital Problems and Taking Over Household

Published Disyembre 5, 2013 by jptan2012

A few months ago, a friend called me to ask for help. His sister is starting to have marital problems since her mother – in – law and sister – in – law moved in with them.

LL is a 34-year-old happily married woman with 2 kids – a girl and a boy. According to LL, life has been good to her and life was almost perfect. However, things started to change when her mother – in – law and unmarried sister – in – law started living with them.Monster-In-Law_6

Her mother – in – law and sister – in – law used to have a house of their own, however, when LL’s father – in – law passed away, LL thought she should invite them to live with them because their house is in a seedy part of the city. She was the one who talked to her husband about this but little did she know that this would start their problem.

Like a typical Chinese LL gave her mother – in – law and sister – in – law who is older than her husband the respect of an elder in the family. Everything seems to be fine in the beginning but things gradually became bad from good.

LL won’t be able to tell when it did start happening, but it seems to be a gradual thing that started to creep in to their life. Maybe because they have nothing else to do both mother – in – law and sister – in – law has nothing else to do, they started to meddle with LL’s house. They would decide what should be eaten for dinner and then they started arranging the furniture. Soon they started meddling with the affairs of LL’s family.

To be fair to LL’s husband, he did try to manage his mother and sister, however, things has gotten really bad already that they seem to be out – of – control and it has started to affect LL’s relationship with her husband. Out of desperation, LL asked her brother to call me and help fix the problem.

I, when LL’s in – laws were out of the house went there. LL was there with her husband; this for me is a good sign, because it signifies that they both acknowledge the problem and wants a solution for it. The first thing I notice is the LL’s mother – in –law and sister –in – law both occupies rooms that has the best Chi. This is not exactly bad, but usually the best chi should be given to the head or leader of the family. In this case, while they’re older than LL and her husband, it is still LL’s husband and LL that should be considered as the head of the family. The only solution I find here is for them to switch rooms.

Switching rooms is the only alternative because aside from the fact that LL’s in – laws has the room that has the best chi in the house, they also occupied the patriarchal sector of the house, thus empowering to head the household.

LL and her husband had to make up stories to switch rooms. But the good news is several months after they’ve switched rooms; LL reports that things are so much better.

Don’t Know Your Bazi? Just Create a Positive Personal Energy!

Published Disyembre 3, 2013 by jptan2012

I do get a lot of request asking me to read their Bazi or Paht Chee. A big chunk of the request is because of the fact that they want to have positive energy or good luck. I believe that knowing one’s bazi is important to create a good personal Feng Shui. However, bazi analysis does take time and I, most of the time, no longer accept bazi or paht chee analysis requests because it is a tedious and time-consuming process. For some, it can be really expensive. Nevertheless, not knowing one’s bazi should not be a hindrance to good Feng Shui.

One of the basic principles of having good Feng Shui is to create good personal energy. Surrounding yourself with good personal energy or positive energy is an easy process. Just follow some of the tips below.

USE A PRAYER WHEEL

I’ve written about prayer wheels before, but I would like to reiterate that a prayer wheel is one powerful tool to create a positive or good personal energy. You can use a handheld one or better yet get a prayer wheel pendant so that you can wear it as a charm or jewelry and use it every time you feel down or feel that you’ve been in a place with negative energy or chi.

To understand more about prayer wheels read my post entitled – THE POWER OF A PRAYER WHEEL.

I personally have a hand held, table top, and pendant Prayer Wheel. A Prayer Wheel has a very good calming effect.

CHANT A MANTRA

Chanting a mantra creates a lot of positive energy. Mantras are believed to be magical words given to us by the Buddhas. Again, I’ve written about this and you can read my post entitled – MANTRA: THE INSTRUMENT TO TAP SYMBOLIC SOUND, SCRIPT, AND THOUGHT – to know more about it.

For the purpose of creating good or positive personal energy you can recite the following mantras:

  1. The mantra of Avalokitesvara also known as The Mantra of the Compassionate Buddha – OM MANI PADME HUM.
  2. The Mantra of Medicine Buddha – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA.
  3. The Immediate Light Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra – OM AH HUM.
  4. The Wish Fulfilling and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra – OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT / OM HANU PHASA BHARA HE YE SOHA

Ideally, these mantras should be recited one full mala a day.

525px-om-mani-padme-hum_02svg1.png

WEAR A PENDANT THAT HAS THE SYMBOLIC SCRIPT THE MANTRAS OR IMAGES OF A BUDDHA OR BODHISATTVA

Wearing a jewelry that has the symbolic script of the mantras or images of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, especially if this is made of gold or precious or semi – precious stones like a jade, is also a powerful tool to create a positive personal energy or good energy. I really believe in this that it prompted me to design the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT for myself for my family. The pendant has since then become a vehicle of numerous blessings to a lot of my readers.

The pendant has the image of the Medicine Buddha, the symbolic script of the Immediate Light Negative Karma Cleaning Mantra – OM AH HUM, and the Wish Fulfilling and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra.

Wearing the pendant, because it has the mantras and images, becomes an aura or chi cleanser.

HELP OTHER PEOPLE AND DO THIS WITH SINCERITY

Helping other people such as giving to charitable institutions is one way of creating a good personal energy, however, this should be done with sincerity. Doing this just because you want to create a positive personal energy doesn’t count. The one that works here is the law of karma.

READ, CHANT, COPY OR CARRY A SUTRA

A sutra is usually a story about a Buddha or about a Buddhist teaching. It is believe that simply having a sutra becomes a blessing. You can read or chant or copy or carry a sutra to help create a positive or good personal energy. But why just stop at reading it or chanting it, copy and carry a sutra to help create more positive personal energy.

These are just some of the of the ways to create a good or positive personal energy. Can think of somebody else that you can share?

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.

Is This Really San Pedro Calungsod?

Published Disyembre 2, 2013 by jptan2012

A few days ago, I received an email from a friend from Cebu about an alleged San Pedro Calungsod apparition, that appeared on a tree near Sto. Nino Church. For those who are familiar with it, Sto. Nino Church is the church where the bell tower was damaged by the strong earthquake that hit Bohol and Cebu.

Is the image on the tree San Pedro Calungsod?

Is the image on the tree San Pedro Calungsod?

I don’t know whether this is true, and looking at the picture, you’ll see that indeed it looks like an image of a person, but how was it identified as the second Filipino saint, that I cannot say for sure. However, according to my friend, the one who saw and said that it was San Pedro Calungsod is a woman who apparently said that he really felt that it was Pedro Calungsod. However, according to my friend, the one who took the picture who thought he really was seeing San Pedro Calungsod was surprised when he saw the picture and realized that it was really just an image in the shape of a man.

So is this San Pedro Calungsod? The answer is I don’t know. However, I believe when it comes to this things, its really something personal. For us the image may be just an image. But for those who were there to witness it, nobody can argue that it’s not San Pedro Calungsod.

When calamities strike, there is really a number of stories about miracles, this one if no different, just like the Kuan Kong miracle that I wrote about yesterday – DID KUAN KONG SAVE A BOY FROM THE WRATH OF TYPHOON YOLANDA?
