How to Deal With Difficult People

Published May 27, 2014 by jptan2012

difficult peopleIn my line of business, I always deal with a lot of people, and there are times that some people can be a little bit more difficult than others. And there are times there are people who are extremely difficult to deal with. I have one such client. She just seems to oppose all my suggestions and whenever she approves my strategies after numerous ‘arguments’, she then will make it difficult for us to execute it properly.

Normally, I would ask my associate to deal with difficult clients. My associate will deal with clients who can’t get along well with me, and this kind of systems usually works for us. However, for this extremely difficult client (DC), my charm and charms combined with the charm of my associate seems to be not working for her. I’ve resigned the account several times but the weird thing she won’t let us off our contract, which means she wants us to stay on the team and be the marketing strategy consultant. However, her extreme ‘bad’ attitude makes it stressful for us to work with her, and I realized it’s either I simply don’t honor the contract and risk going to court or I have to do something about her!

After thinking it over, I decided I should just use Buddhism Feng Shui with her. I don’t really know whether she’s going through something that’s why she’s being difficult or it’s simply her attitude. But I thought I’d use Buddhism and Feng Shui with her.

I decided to recite one mala of the Mantra of the Compassionate Bodhisattva (sometimes also called the Mantra of Compassionate Buddha), Kuan Yin (The Bodhisattva of Compassion / Buddha of Compassion), on her. I would recite OM MANI PADME HUM in the car while visualizing that my mantra gets to her. Then just before I get to see her, I will quickly recite 7 times the Medicine Buddha Mantra and blow on my right hand. The hand that I use to shake other hands, upon touching shaking her hands I will imagine that the healing energy of Medicine Buddha will envelope her.

During the meeting I will constantly make sure to smile at her when appropriate, nod to whatever she’s saying and make sure that my arms are not cross and in fact, that they are open in a welcoming stance. And one of the most important thing is I will wear my Prayer Wheel, a Prayer Wheel has a calming effect not only to the one who has it, but to all the people who’s near it. Whenever I can, with disrupting people, I will spin my Prayer Wheel necklace.

Well…She’s so much more pleasant now!

 

Myth Buster 16: Taking Home a Starfish Can Bring You Wealth Luck

Published May 20, 2014 by jptan2012

boracay-pic-3In my recent trip to the world famous resort island of Boracay, while me and my friends were just relaxing at one of the Casitas of Ariel’s Pointe, I came across a Finnish woman who I noticed was holding a starfish and was putting it in a plastic container.

While I cannot say that I’m a hardcore environmentalist, the truth is being a Feng Shui practitioner and a Buddhist, it’s impossible not to be a little environmentalist. It is simply part of the practice. So I decided to intervene put on a smile and nicely ask her what is she doing with the starfish. She smiled back at me and told me that there is a Finnish belief that when you accidentally step on a starfish and you decide to keep it, it will surely bring you a lot of good luck.

I first appreciated the starfish and told her that it is illegal to bring the starfish home and that she might be apprehended at the port. The truth is I’m really not sure whether there is such a law; I just decided to tell her the most logical thing. Explaining that bringing the starfish home is not good for the environmentalist, much more for the starfish, will be a tough job because she’s already on her 40s and she should know that already, so I decided to take the most effective route which is about her personal safety and that it being illegal. While I don’t know whether there is such a law in the country, I believe that it is the most logical thing to have. I’m glad she listened and decided to throw it back to the water.starfish

This is the first time I heard about starfish bringing wealth luck, but this is my take on it. If you came across a starfish on the shore, it is really good to throw it back to the water because on the shore for a long time without water, the starfish will surely die. By throwing it back (and yes you throw it back as far as you can so that it will not be washed ashore again, and no it won’t hurt the starfish) you would have saved the starfish from its eventual death, thus creating some good karma for yourself which might bring you some luck. However, bringing it home will surely kill the starfish, with a dead starfish not only did you create a tremendous amount of negative karma for yourself but also keeping a dead starfish is literally keeping a yin or negative energy. Both the negative karma and the yin energy will definitely bring a lot of bad luck for you.

So the next time you see a starfish on the shore, appreciate it a little and throw it back to the water to create some good karma for yourself.

Don’t Create Yin Energy with Your Dead Pet’s Body

Published May 14, 2014 by jptan2012

cute dogMy readers would know that I love dogs and I would always remind my readers that while dogs gives us good Feng Shui, this can only happen if we put their well being a priority and if we ensure that they become a balance dog.

However, allow me to share the story of one former officemate who had a very good life, until one day he came to me crying to tell me that his father fell ill and that his brother was involved in an accident. Furthermore, there were a lot of bickering in the house, and it used to be a loving and tight family. She wants to know what she can do to stop all the negative things that have been happening to them.

Told her of the necessary cures, and to her credit she followed all my advice, but she said while things are a little better, the problem it’s just a little better and now they’re in danger of losing their savings because of the expensive cost of their father’s treatment.

I decided to visit their house and did a Feng Shui audit. Except for minor adjustments, everything seems to be fine. I didn’t see anything that would cause all the problems, and I’m beginning to think that all the problems were of a collective karmic nature. However, when I went into the yard, I saw a really nice figure of dog and mentioned it because it was really nice. My ex-officemate casually mentioned that they put it there in memory of their beloved dog Meimei! I thought it was Meimei’s favorite spot and mentioned this to my ex-officemate and she clarified that it’s where they put Meimei’s dead body when she passed away! Bingo! I now know the problem.

I asked them whether all the problems started when Meimei died, and they said that in hindsight that it did. I then clarified that her death didn’t cause the problems but her dead body in the yard did. We all know that anything dead whether it’s fruit or vegetables or pets creates yin energy!

But what to do with the body of a dead pet? Bury them somewhere else, or if it might prove to be impractical and expensive. Cremate the body, scatter the ashes on your garden, or put the ashes in an urn and place it somewhere in your house or garden, or if you want you can bury the urn with ashes on your garden.

I believe I’ve mentioned this before, ashes of a dead person or pet is considered neither yin nor yang. It simply doesn’t have a chi so it won’t affect your luck or Feng Shui.

They immediately had the body exhumed, cremated it (or at least what’s left of it), we did a cleansing ritual where it was buried, then they took the ashes home and buried it again in the same spot.

Last I heard from her, they’re doing really well again.

Is Working as a Call Center Agent Creating Bad Luck?

Published May 12, 2014 by jptan2012

work1Today, I would like to share with you a question of a call center agent. DS is 34 years old call center agent. He’s been working as a call center agent for 7 years now and he said he noticed while his income has always been steady, the financial progress is quite limited, but worse is his personal life.

You see DS is always sick, on top of that his personal relationships has been deteriorating, his wife left him for another man, and he is left with his 2 kids who seems unable to connect with him. He was desperate so his cousin who happens to be a reader who became my friend convinced him to talk with me. His cousin then convinced me to meet up with DS.

When I met with DS, DS shared with me his woes, emphasizing that his life used to be good until he decided to join the call center industry. He said, that’s when he noticed the changes that happened to him and it was an about 2 years after it that his relationship with his wife started to go sour. He said that relationship problem is common amongst his colleagues and amongst call center agents, and they usually attribute this to the fact that they work in the evening and that they are usually dead tired when they go home in the morning, which makes it hard for them to have meaningful relationships with their partners because of the difference in working time.

What I didn’t say that while that is indeed an explanation, it doesn’t explain as to why in a research study it shows that call center agents generally find it hard to have meaningful relationships, on top of that, promiscuity tends to be higher amongst them. As a marketing consultant, I also became privy in a study that shows that the highest selling product of convenience stores located near call center offices is a condom. To top it off, and without generalizing it, one of the highest HIV infection rate is amongst the call center agents. These studies tell us something. But what is the problem?

Personally, I think it is because most call center agents work in the evening, which is generally considered Yin time. Too much exposure in the Yin energy without being counter acted by Yang time is bad for all of us. It will create a lot of problems, whether it is financial, relationships or health. I say this from experience.

Several years back, I worked as a news writer for a TV network. I used to go to work 4pm and go home at around 4:30am. I will only get to experience and exposure to yang energy for a few minutes. It will be usually be between my travels from my house to my workplace. Soon I started noticing some problems cropping up in my life, I called up my Feng Shui master and he explained I don’t have enough yang time.

What I did I was requested my superiors to move me to a better time. They did and that solved the problem. But I’m well aware that not all of us will have that luxury. So what can one do?

First, try to engage in some yang energy ‘sessions’ once a week. During your rest day do expose yourself to the sun’s yang energy. Play with kids or your pets if you have any, they exudes yang energy. Play good yang music everyday, these are music that are fun and have messages of happiness.

Wearing a pink or red (made of good quality stone) or a gold Kuan Yin pendant will greatly boost your young energy. Kuan Yin will protect you from yin energy at the same time pink, red, or gold will give off some yang energy. It will also help if you can have an image of the Medicine Buddha or it’s mantra or sutra somewhere in your body.

This is rare Kuan Yin collection carved from a pink chalcedony. While pink chalcedony and Kuan Yin images are not rare it is rare to have a Pink Chalcedony Kuan Yin. There are a lot of fake pink chalcedonys in the market. While price should not be the only basis in choosing a good pink chalcedony because it is very to price a fake one high to make it look real, it is good to take note that really cheap ones are usually fake pink chalcedony.

Gaining Freedom from Debt and Achieving Financial Success By Following the Different Recommendations of the Different Feng Shui Tips to Enhance Wealth Luck and by Wearing the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant: A Personal Testimony of a Reader

Published May 9, 2014 by jptan2012

Key to Financial SuccessToday, I would like to share with you a story on how a reader gain financial success by following the different Feng Shui tips to enhance wealth luck and by wearing the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA(1) pendant.

At the time when she got the pendant TL is 46 years old wife and mother of 4 children. The eldest is a medical student, the second and third children are in college, and the youngest is in high school. TL’s husband is an employee in one of the big corporations in the country.

TL is one of the few people who requested for the pendant just a few days after I first wrote about it. At that time, she was desperate to get the pendant because she just got laid off from work about 2 years before. With 4 children still in school and building their dream house, even the husband still has a job; they soon found themselves in big debt. TL herself found it hard to look for another job because she was deemed old.

To help in the expenses, she decided to become a car sales agent at the same she moonlights as a real estate agent. However, being an office girl before, she really had a hard time doing sales. A year after shifting career, and after 3 different car sales company, she only sold 2 cars and was not able to sell and real estate property.

With the danger of losing everything they saved up, she decided to try Feng Shui and stumbled upon my blog, she then tried most of the Feng Shui tips to enhance wealth luck and gambled on the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA(2) pendant after having read about it on my blog.

According to TL nothing happened on the first month of wearing the pendant. She became desperate and a little frantic. Her husband started ‘’fighting’ with her for spending so much money on the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT(3). In addition to all the money problems, her marriage became shaky also because they are taking the pressure of losing all they have. Furthermore, they’re already contemplating talking to their second child to go and work first to help in the tuition fee of their daughter who is taking up medicine. She became desperate and frantic and decided to ‘talk’ to the pendant. She said she told the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA(4) pendant to give her some money and to give it to her fast. Her husband saw this and told her that she might as well say goodbye to the pendant because they will have to pawn it.

Both TL and her husband are no longer sure, but they think it was a week after TL talks to the pendant that she has a sale, then she had another, soon she had a corporate account and was also able to sell some real estate property. Now, they have paid off all their debts, and furthermore, they are now able to continue building their dream house and more than that her daughter who is medical school and the 2nd child was able to get a scholarship, lifting a huge financial burden from them.

According to TL, what’s even more amazing is the fact that they are now even able to start to save again. She said she was expecting to win the lottery but little did she notice that slowly all her wish came true. It is as if she didn’t notice it at first but that everything has become ok again and more than that she can get comfortable again.

Now she also wants her husband and children to wear the WISH FUFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT(5).

Putting Life in a Dead Space of a House

Published May 8, 2014 by jptan2012

The younger generation has now started to move to condominiums, and since the space is now smaller they seldom see dead space, unlike for those who still live in a big place like a stand-alone house.

A space is called dead space if it doesn’t have any yang energy or activities going in that space or area of the house. The truth is in my experience, I think I haven’t seen a big stand alone house without a dead space, at least, not that I can remember of.

A dead space is bad because it will surely have an effect on the people living in the house, it can be just one person or it call be all of you. It’s quite important to make sure that you don’t have a dead space in your house.

But what can you do if the house is really big for your family?

If the dead space is a room, I suggest try playing some music in that area of the house. If you can play some mantra then better, also make sure that natural light comes in every morning.

petsIf the dead space is an area where you can take care of pets, then do take care of pets, like dogs, cats, or even rabbits. Just make sure that they remain happy pets. Do not get pets just for the sake of wanting to have good luck.

If it’s a terrace where in you cannot take care of pets but want to put life there, you can install a bird feeder and put some bird feeds so that birds will naturally go in that area and they will infuse the dead space of yang energy.

How to Counter the Negative Chi of A Hospital

Published May 7, 2014 by jptan2012

Today, I would yet like to share with you another natural way of countering negative chi. It is almost inevitable that at one point in our life we will either be hospitalized, have a loved one who’s going to be hospitalized, or visit somebody in the hospital.

As I mentioned before the hospital is one of the most yin place one can visit, and it is extremely important that one is totally protected when we enter the hospital, either as a patient or as a visitor.Ft. Belvoir Hospital

I personally just wear my WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT and/or the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT whenever I go to the hospital. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT has the image of The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven Sun Wukong who is one the most powerful protector deity. The WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant on the other hand has the image of the Medicine Buddha, Kuan Kong, Kalachakra, both the immediate and the negative karma cleansing mantra, which are all very powerful protector from the yin energy that a hospital emits.

However, the truth is not everyone can afford the pendants that I mentioned. But there are other ways of protecting oneself from the yin energy of the hospital without having to buy either of the pendants.

As a patient if the doctor’s recommendation is that you be confined in the hospital, ask a love to make sure to put rock salt in the 4 corners of your room and in the 4 corners of the restroom. About a teaspoon each will do. You personally, should have about a teaspoon of rock salt beside your bed and make sure that you always have flowers inside the room. Try to choose colorful ones rather than those that are quite dull in color. Having fruits in the room will also help. So having the salt and flowers and/or fruits will ensure that the yang energy of these things will counter the yin energy of the room or of the hospital.

Flowers are a great way of dispelling the negative chi or yin energy of a hospital. Furthermore, it can make a sick person feel better. (Photo lifted from Google Images)

Upon discharge, take a piece of flower with you and some salt as you leave. Throw them out on your way home, just before you get home.

If you are taking care of a love one or are visiting a loved one, try to have a small packet of rocket salt and put it in your pocket. Throw them out every time you leave the hospital and bring a new one whenever you’re going there. If possible also get a flower and throw it out just before you reach your home.

Additional piece of advice, if you can, before entering your hospital room, have a love one knock on the door first, open the door, and act as if someone is getting out of the room. This is to make sure that if there are any lingering spirits inside, they hopefully take the cue that they need to leave the room.
