People have been asking me what are some of the Chinese New Year ritual that one can do. In our household, although, unfortunately because I’m working on my book and had to work closely with my publisher and editor in Kuala Lumpur I might not be able to spend Chinese New Year at home this year, we always have Nian Gao or what is more popularly known as Tikoy here in the Philippines.

When I first learned about Feng Shui, I have always insisted and made sure that we will have Tikoy or Nian Gao (the Chinese New Year Sticky Rice Cake) on our table, because I remember that the very first thing that my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong, and the one in Singapore said is to always make sure there is Nian Gao on the table on the eve of Chinese New Year and to eat it a day after Chinese New Year.


This is because a Tikoy or Nian Gao with it’s round shape symbolizes perfect Man’s Luck, one of the Luck in the Three Lucks of Feng Shui, namely Heaven’s Luck, Man’s Luck, and Earth’s Luck. Furthermore, because a Nian Gao when uncooked (the one that we buy on the store is already cooked, we just cook it again by frying it), is a little smaller than when it is cook, so it symbolizes prosperity. Lastly, it’s stickiness symbolizes harmony.

Having this on the table on the eve of Chinese New Year, which this year happens on February 8, 2016 and all through Chinese New Year, then eating them after Chinese New Year is a symbolic way of enhancing your Man’s Luck, creating prosperity and harmony.

Baby’s Illness Cured With the Illness Suppression Amulet: A Personal Testimony of A Reader

Published Enero 29, 2016 by jptan2012

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you would have known already by now that this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey is ruled by the #2 Flying Star, which is also known as the Illness Star. You may also remember that the term Illness Star is also quite misleading because the star also brings in accident that may lead to long-term illness or liability. It is because of this reason that my Guru Lama decided to make a special amulet called Illness Suppression Amulet; I personally prefer calling this amulet as Illness and Accident Suppression Amulet. This particular amulet is made by consecrating it thus making it more powerful. And it is available by making a special donation of an image of a Buddha. To understand this better you might want to read a post entitled – THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.

babyI have written about all these things several weeks back. Today, I’m happy to share the very first simple testimonial about the said amulet. This was shared with me by a reader who got the Illness Suppression Amulet because her baby is getting sickly and as a mother she naturally got quite concerned.

You will see her name in the screen grabbed of her message to me, so I won’t be giving her an initial. Paula, is somebody who got the Vajrapani Ruel before. A few weeks ago she called me up a little concerned because her baby all of a sudden had diarrhea and also vomits. However, a visit to the doctor proved to be futile because he can’t seem to find what’s wrong with the baby. So just before my trip again to Kuala Lumpur, where I’m working on finishing my books, she met with me to get the Illness Suppression Amulet. And I told her to roll/rub the Illness Suppression Amulet over her baby’s stomach.textP

Then a few days ago, I received a message from her (see picture). Allow me to translate and rewrite it here:

Good morning, JP. Are you still in the Philippines? Just want to share. Remember, I got an Illness Suppression Amulet from you last Monday? I rolled it on top of my baby’s tummy and she got better after 2 days! Unfortunately, she had cough and cold after that, but I decided to continue rubbing the Illness Suppression Amulet, and she’s now getting better! You know…her recovery seems so fast! Thank God! Of course that is with the help of the Illness Suppression Amulet!

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

What Crystals or Semi – Precious Stones to Wear Base On Chinese Animal Zodiac (Chinese Horoscope)?

Published Enero 28, 2016 by jptan2012

semi precious stonesMost of you, my readers, are familiar with the birthstones base on Western Zodiac or Horoscope. But since I wrote about crystals, I have been barrage with questions as to what is the best stones base on their Chinese Animal Zodiac or Chinese Horoscope. So here it is, I’m sharing with you the best stone for each Chinese Animal Zodiac, however, you’ll notice that unlike the Western Zodiac, for the Chinese Horoscope there are usually more than one stone, this is because this is base on Feng Shui.

So here it is…



I usually get my stones when I travel or in some selected few retailers in Ongpin (Philippine’s Chinatown), they are usually the small ones from Mainland China and are not commercialized and has not come out on TV. However, even in Ongpin they sell fake. Recently though I came across an online seller who has a FB page. So far I have observed that their stones are really nice and relatively affordable. A lot of my readers who got their crystals or stones from them are quite happy with the quality that they got. You can check them out by clicking here.

Please note though that I’m in no way connected to them or know them personally.

Vajrapani Ruel Stories (27) : An Actor Experienced A Downpour of Financial Blessings!

Published Enero 25, 2016 by jptan2012

The first time I introduced the Vajrapani Ruel to my readers last January of 2015, in a post called – WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL AMULET IN THE BUDDHIST PANTHEON CALLED VAJRAPANI RUEL, I have received so many wonderful and miraculous stories that I decided to write about in a series called Vajrapani Ruel Stories. The journey of the writing about the Vajrapani Ruel Stories has been mostly wonderful, but of course true to the fashion of a lot of human beings, they will throw criticisms on something that they don’t really understand and yet has become quite successful. A lot of these criticisms about the Vajrapani Ruel also stems out of its uniqueness and other issues that they associate with me. However, having said that I believe that true vindication comes from the continuous personal testimonies of a lot of readers who got the Vajrapani Ruel. Believe me when I say that there are a lot more that I haven’t written about here on this blog. To top it off, some of these people will be ‘appearing’ with there full names and pictures on my upcoming book. Furthermore, when I first wrote about the Vajrapani Ruel no Feng Shui writers or experts are talking about Bodhisattva Vajrapani, now I heard from other readers and friends that several Feng Shui experts have started to write about Bodhisattva Vajrapani and have recommended the chanting of the mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani – OM VAJRAPANI HUM. These I think are testaments to the great power of not just the Vajrapani Ruel but Bodhisattva Vajrapani himself.

Raining-moneyToday, allow me to share a short wonderful story of a reader who had a miracle that he calls ‘a downpour of financial blessings’ after he got the Vajrapani Ruel. The person who experienced this miracle is another Filipino actor and because of that let’s just gives him the initials FA.

FA is a young actor who temporarily left the industry because his career was not taking off. However, after a few months he decided that he wants to give the industry a second try because acting is what he really wants to do. His mom is averse to this decision because she wants him to have a more stable job. Nevertheless, FA is bent on going back to the entertainment industry and so his mother decided to simply contact me and get him a Vajrapani Ruel because while she doesn’t like the idea that his son is going to be the same industry, she felt compelled to do the only thing that she can and that is to support him and provide him with things that she believes can help him.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

After getting the Vajrapani Ruel where I got to meet FA and her mom, I didn’t hear from them again. I haven’t watched TV for almost 2 years now and while I would hear FA’s name from friend from time to time, I didn’t realize that his career has taken off. And just recently FA himself called me because some his friends from the entertainment industry wanted to get the Vajrapani Ruel, and it was during this conversation that FA shared with me that his career has been taken off and that there was a downpour of financial blessings for him!

No longer a struggling and starving artist, he totally credits the Vajrapani Ruel for his success!

Do Not Worry Too Much…Be Positive…Be Good…

Published Enero 23, 2016 by jptan2012

One of my reader turned friend, who have been feature in this blog a number of times, BM, told me that sometimes it shows on my writing how concerned I am about a certain situation, especially when I wrote about my forecast and I talked about the Ox and Tiger sign and about the stronger #5 Flying Star (also known as Wu Wang or Five Yellow Star) in the Northeast.

If you’ve read the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast, you would know that the people born under the sign of the Tiger, especially the Ox, and the people born who stays in the Northeast sector of their house or office might be in for a challenging year because they are affected by the Wu Wang.

According to BM, my writing reflects that I was really worried. I think this got her really worried also. But true to her ‘BM’ fashion she said “We should not worry so much, we have to be positive, do good and have faith in God.”

Well, I’m Buddhist, so technically speaking we don’t have a God, but I think she hit it a very important point. We should keep ourselves protected, and then trust in a higher being!

But more than that, I firmly believe that in Feng Shui the first line of defense it to keep positive and naturally doing good, especially if one is sincere, will also earn a person lots of good merits that may serve as a protection.

I thank BM for reminding me this.

Tanzanite (2):A Must Have Rare Precious Stone that Heals, Protects, and Increase Wealth Luck!

Published Enero 22, 2016 by jptan2012

In the preceding post, I introduced you to the rare and very powerful stone called Tanzanite. In that post I talked about its physical properties and why is it considered as a perfect stone to have for this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. However, the Tanzanite is not just a stone for this year, it is a great stone to have and wear even beyond 2016 because it is a powerful stone that has strong protective and healing energies, and it also helps increase wealth luck. Furthermore, it is a stone that can be worn even by people with high water element in their charts, because it is balanced by the intrinsic fire and earth element of the stone.tanzanite4


As mentioned in the first part of this post, Tanzanites are good healing stones. It helps boosts our immune system and improve strength. It is especially good for people who always feel physically weak and drained. Furthermore, it is a very powerful stone for those who experience depression and anxiety, or even chronic stress syndrome and other psychological or mental illness. It’s subtle fire energy helps people fight off addiction, especially the milder ones like alcoholism, food addiction or even shopping addiction.


On top of that a lot of people I know who got the stone consistently said that their mood has definitely improve. And true enough simply looking at a Tanzanite will imbibe you with a positive energy of elation. You will feel happier and much more energized. They said it is as if simply having the stone their worries has been lifted off their shoulder. And true enough the fluid energy of the water element and the subtle vibrant energy of the fire element in the Tanzanite has this positive effect on people.tanzanite3


One thing I really love about the Tanzanite is that it is a wonderful that aids us in having a better relationship, whether it is a personal or professional relationship. Its blue energies directly control our throat chakra thus making us more expressive and a better communicator. However, it’s intrinsic earth energies makes us grounded thus more in control of what we want to say. But it’s fire energy helps us to be more assertive and yet in a gentle manner.


The Tanzanite is also a very good aura protector. It protects you from negative energies, especially the ones like created by the people around you. But more than that, it helps protects you from negative energies caused by unseen elementals.tanzanite5


But what is really surprising with this stone is that the combination of the three elements found in this stone creates a wonderful wealth enhancing energies. At first look some of its intrinsic elements may be contradicting each other, but the right balance that forms in every Tanzanite makes it a unique blue stone that creates a wonderful wealth enhancing energy. This is especially true for people who are in marketing, legal, advertising, PR, and sales.

I personally have several different favorite stones but the Tanzanite is now overtaking all those stones. The fact that this is a rare stone that is bound not to last very long makes it even more special.

The problem is really looking for an authentic and not very expensive Tanzanite. If you are looking for a Tanzanite better contact a trusted gemologist or jeweler. But don’t be surprised if some jewelers are still not familiar with the Tanzanite, because this is a fairly young stone. Tiffany & Co. has one of the best collections of Tanzanites that are commercially available. You can visit their site if you really want the top of the line Tanzanite that may cost around US$ 3,000.00 for a small piece. However, you need not get the top of the line for you to experience its wonderful energies. Here in the Philippines, I don’t personally know of any stores that sell authentic Tanzanite. But recently I came across a FB page called Crystals and Gold, I don’t really know the owner but the ones I referred to them are very happy with the quality of semi – precious stones they get from her. The best part is that their price is not expensive. But a Tanzanite is a Tanzanite so even an affordable Tanzanite may still cost a little high.

Tanzanite (1): A Rare But Perfect Blue Stone For This 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey!

Published Enero 21, 2016 by jptan2012

If you have read my 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast, you would know that one of the most recommended cures for this year is wearing a blue stone. This is a cure for most, but not all, to determine whether you should be wearing a blue stone please read the first part of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast.

Once you have determine that you need to wear a blue stone to supplement the energy of the missing water element, you can choose with the different blue stones, however, I believe that there is one stone that will works best for this year and the coming years. I’m talking about the Tanzanite.cristal de tanzanite (Tanzanie)

Tanzanite is a stone discovered in Mererani Hills of Manara Region is Northern Tanzania is 1967. Although Tanzanite is considered as a blue stone it may slight appear to have different colors when viewed under different light conditions. It is this varying color that makes it a perfect stone for this 2016. But before I go explain the last sentence, let me talk more about the physical qualities of a Tanzanite.

When a Tanzanite from initially as a trichroic crystal this means that it has three colors. The said colors are blue (represents water element), with some very light shades of violet (represents fire), and brown (which normally represents wood but because in this kind of formation it represents earth). When mined or ‘harvested’ before making it available commercially, gems are usually heat treated to bring out the most beautiful color of the stone. Tanzanite goes through this process as well, it takes out the brownish color, and retains only the blue color, sometimes with very minimal traces of violet, which more often than not are only visible to the eye of an expert.tanzanite-grades

Sometimes, although very rare, a heat treated Tanzanite will have a green hue, this green tanzanite are considered more valuable than the regular one. Some say that there are pink tanzanites. I personally haven’t seen one.

It is also important to know that when gem stones are mined, like the Tanzanite, they usually come up as one whole big block, the outer parts are considered the skin and will have the lowest quality, as you go deeper to the center, they are the ones that are considered as the higher quality. As mentioned earlier, to bring out the deepest blue of a Tanzanite, they are usually heat treated, and depending on the quality of color that came out, they may be considered as polished raw, high grade, gem quality. There are different subs – categories but I rather not go into that. In some cases, a Tanzanite is mined or harvested as a high grade gem quality, because of metamorphic occurrences underground, the natural blue of a Tanzanite is brought out underground, this is considered as the highest grade gem quality, and much coveted. But that is not to say that the Tanzanite that is heat treated above ground is inferior. A Tanzanite is a Tanzanite, and there is no Tanzanite that can be considered as low quality. That’s how precious they are.Tanzanite

Furthermore, Tanzanite is only mined in one place in the whole world, and that is in Mererani Hills in Tanzania. So a Tanzanite is considered really rare and naturally it is not expected to last very long. This makes a Tanzanite even more expensive and much coveted. A person who collects semi – precious stones to high quality gems will definitely wish for a Tanzanite.

However, these physical qualities of a Tanzanite are not what make it a much coveted especially for this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. But it is because it is a very good stone to have regardless of the year, although again it is a perfect stone for the year. Allow me to explain but I would like to say that it is better that you understand the energies of the year by reading the first part of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Forecast by clicking here.

tanzanite2As mentioned, the year’s chart show that this is an imbalanced year, water is missing and fire is strong as well as metal. Most people will need to have the energies of the water element and blue colored stones usually represent this. However, water destroys fire and while Feng Shui experts are saying we need water, a lot of people will naturally have the water element in their sign, so for some wearing blue stone would mean a high increase in the water energies, and thus destroying the year’s natural energies. This is fine, because the year’s natural energies is predominantly fire and it will not be destroyed but it will be tamed, but since the a Tanzanite as very slight hues of violet, which represents the fire element, harmoniously blending with its blue, then this becomes a great symbolic representation of harmonious blending of your ‘artificial’ water energies with that of the year’s natural predominant energy! This is also why it is a perfect stone for people who need the water energy but cannot not have a small fire energy. Furthermore, having the color brown that is in the case of the Tanzanite represents the earth energy and a gem being natural earth energy, this then nurtures the metal energy of the year, which for the year represents money or wealth.

Furthermore, a Tanzanite is a stone that aurically boosts one’s immune system and is quite good for various physical ailments. On top of it, it helps alleviates and prevent psychological and mental problems, both of which are illnesses that are not as easily recognized. Plus the blue of a Tanzanite, especially, the one of the gem quality is close to blue of Medicine Buddha. Combined effects of these two qualities make it a perfect stone to help us manage the ruling Illness and Accident energy of the year. This with the Illness Suppression Amulet should help us avoid getting affected by the effects of the Illness Star.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

My next post shall talk about why the Tanzanite is also a good stone even beyond 2016.

Incidentally, since I have started my blog, especially the ones that talks about the use of crystals, people have been asking me where they can get their crystals or semi – precious stones or even precious ones. I normally refer them to various suppliers depending on the stone they need or want. However, recently I was quite fortunate to come across a FB page that says crystals, they are called Crystals and Gold. I don’t really know the owner, but looking at their pictures it do seems that they have good authentic natural crystals (not fake one), the ones that have a prices indicated seems to be very reasonable, actually they are very affordable and low compared to other sellers. You can visit their site just look for it. I have referred several readers and they seem very happy with the quality and the price. I just hope they still have Tanzanites!

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.
