The Three Celestial Guardians.

Published Pebrero 5, 2012 by jptan2012

The 3 Celestial Guardians, the most effective cure for the Star of 3 Killings, has become really popular in the last couple of decades. For Feng Shui enthusiasts the reason is pretty obvious. If you want to avoid the 3 Killings, then tap into the 3 Celestial Guardians. However, the truth is some people are not really familiar that the Three Celestial Guardians really consists of three different celestial animals or beings. They’re namely the Pi Yao, the Chi Lin, and the Fu Dog. These three figured prominently in Chinese architectures as guardians and bringer of luck. They’re not really used as collective protection against the negative chi of the Star of Three Killings. In the olden days, Feng Shui practitioners will use just a pair of these celestial protectors to ‘fight’ the 3-Killings. It was a famous Singaporean Feng Shui consultant who first incorporated the use of the 3-Celestial Guardians to ‘fight’ the effects of the Three-Killings. He was ‘ridiculed’ and criticized for his actions and was said that he did this to become ‘famous’ and to go down in Feng Shui history as somebody who was able to contribute something substantial.

Time proved that he was correct, because the practice of putting a pair of single kind of celestial protector is only meant to subdue to effects of the 3 Killings, however, putting the Three-Celestial Guardians as one totally ‘crushes’ the effects of the Three Killings, so much so that you don’t have to worry about it. In fact, unlike the Tai Suey and the Five Yellow Star, even with the aid of a Pi Yao and Five Element Pagoda you still have to avoid them, with the 3-Celestial Guardian you can just totally ignore the Three Killings. You don’t have to worry about it. That’s how powerful the 3 Celestial beings in dealing with the 3-Killings.

The Three Celestial Guardians, as mentioned earlier, is compose of the Pi Yao, Chi Lin, and Fu Dog. They’re some of the most ubiquitous and most revered protectors of the Chinese. You’ll see them in temples as some of the first line of guardians, you’ll also see them in the homes of the powerful and rich people and you’ll see them in offices (private or government).

 

The Pi Yao is also called as the Pixiu (Pi Xiu), Pi Xie (Pixie) or Piyao. Better known in Feng Shui for appeasing the Tai Suey (Tai Sui) God if offended, it is one of the animals in the 3 Celestial Guardians. At first glance, it resembles a ferocious, angry lion, however, if you take a closer look you’ll notice that it’s actually a winged creature that has the head of the Chinese dragon. A Pi Yao is really a fierce creature, its large fangs is known to ‘kill’ demons and negative energies.

Pi Yao also called Piyao, Pi Xie, Pi Xiu, Pixiu, Pixie is powerful celestial being.

 

The Chi Lin (also spelled as Chilin, Qi Lin, Gi Lin) is a hooved, celestial, mythical creature often called as the ‘Chinese Unicorn’. The Chinese believes that a vision of Chi Lin would mean that there’s going to be an arrival of a wise SiFu (teacher) or great illustrious leader. In fact, it’s said that when a Imperial Feng Shui consultant or astrologer dreams of a Chi Lin or saw a vision of a Chi Lin, it would mean that there will come a new great leader or emperor. For emperors or empresses who are expecting a child, and they dream of a Chi Lin, they will take it that their child will be a great leader. It is said that the mother of Chin Shi Huang Ti’s mother ‘saw’ a Chi Lin outside her window the day before she gave birth. For those who are familiar with Chinese history, Chin Shi Huang Ti is one of the greatest leader in China, albeit some people think he is also one of the most cruel emperor. Furthermore, the Chi Lin is also believe to be able to dispel negative energies and make them into auspicious one. In fact, in some Chinese dynasties, the Chilin is rank as the highest form of Celestial being.

The Chi Lin (also spelled as Qi Lin, Gi Lin, Ky Lin, Chilin, Qilin) also has a scaled body.

The Fu Dog or Foo Dog are Chinese Imperial Guardian Lions, some people will say that its technically wrong to call dogs because they’re not. It is also debatable whether the Imperial Guardian Lion or Fu Dog is a celestial being or whether it’s base from ordinary lion given extra characteristics for Feng Shui and Auspicious purposes. It also unclear whether the word Fu is from the the Chinese word Buddha, or the Chinese word Luck, which sounds the same. Whatever, its origin, the Fu Dog is also a very ubiquitous protector symbol in China. They will usually come in pair. The Fu Dog may not enjoy as much reverence given to the Chi Lin and Pi Yao, nevertheless, they’re considered as one of the most powerful protectors.

The Fu Dog or Foo Dog is a Chinese Imperial Guardian Lion.

It should be noted that the Pi Yao and Fu Dog when used as a protective ornament at home to deal with the effects of Tai Suey and as protection from bad spirits respectively, they should always be a pair of them. Chi Lin, may go solo. However, in dealing with the 3-Killings, you can have just one of each.

Wearing a Pi Yao pendant can also pacify the Tai Suey should you offend Him by facing or staying the Tai Suey corner. It can also bring wealth luck because the Pi Yao has a big mouth and no anus, which symbolizes that luck will enter but unable to leave. It is said that the Jade Emperor made the Pi Yao his wealth catcher and has made the Pi Yao into a being that can only eat gold and silver.

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

As much as possible don't get a a Piyao with a lazy stance, such as the one depicted in the picture. Although, this will also work , try to get the one that has a Yang posture.

The Chi Lin when worn as pendant will bring wisdom and pacify arguments or bickering. Furthermore, if you don’t know the Feng Shui or unfamiliar with the Chi of a place, the Chi Lin will help protect you should there be bad Feng Shui and/or negative energies. It will also ward off negative energies and turn them into positive one.

A Chi Lin pendant is a powerful cure if you're not sure of the energy and/or of the Feng Shui of a place.

On the other hand, the Fu Dog, when worn as pendant will also ward off negative energies and protect you from bad spirits. The Fu Dog is a nice amulet to wear when going to the hospital or a wake.

A Fu Dog (Foo Dog) pendant is a very good amulet when visiting hospitals or a wake.

Because, I know how impractical it is to wear the images of all 3 Celestial Guardians and the need to wear other Feng Shui charm, I decided to design my own Feng Shui cure and enhancer that incorporates the 3 Celestial Guardian and other cures for the Flying Star afflictions. I called this the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT. At the front of the pendant is a very powerful wealth and protector deity in Taoism and a Buddha in Buddhism called the Monkey God Sun Wukong, – The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven. Click here if you wish to know more about the Monkey God, Sun Wukong.

Front image of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT is that of - THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN SUN WUKONG. The pendant is made of 14k Yellow Gold.

At the back are the 3 Celestial Guardians, and the Five Element Pagoda and a Ksitigarbha Fireball.

At the top is the Chinese character for - THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN. Followed by the 3 Celestial Guardians, and below is the Five Element Pagoda which deals with the Five Yellow Star and the Ksitigarbha Fireball which deals with the Argumentative Star.

Since writing about it, I’ve received a lot of email asking me as to how can they avail of the pendant. Unfortunately, as of now, because of the high price of gold, and because its quite thick and big, about an in length, and half an inch in width, its quite heavy, the price is quite steep. My jeweler, at the moment, is unable to make a silver one to make it more affordable. However, if you’re in Manila, Philippines, and wish to avail of the pendant I can lend you the mold for free. You just need to pay some deposit for the mold, and you’ll get your money (100%) back once you return the mold. You can use the mold to look for a jeweler who can make the pendant for you. I can just help you consecrate the pendant.

 

Feng Shui-Chinese Zodiac Forecast for 2012 Year of the Water Dragon (Part 2)

Published Disyembre 30, 2011 by jptan2012

In my previous post, I shared with you my 2012 Year of the Water Dragon Feng Shui forecast for the Chinese Zodiacs – Rat, Ox, Tiger, and Rabbit. These are base on my own calculations and interpretations of the Bazi or Four Pillars and the Flying Star. My family is an avid Feng Shui believers and we realized that it’ll be cheaper for us if one of us just enroll and study Feng Shui rather than pay for the expensive fee of a Feng Shui consultant.

Allow me to clarify that these readings are generic for each of the animal sign. For me to be able to give you a better reading, I need to have your birth-year, month, day, and time.

THE DRAGON…

might have the misconception that since this is a year of the dragon, he or she might have a very good year. However, this is actually wrong and a very common misconception at that. The truth of the matter is that if your Chinese Zodiac is similar to the sign of the year, it means its going to be a challenging year ahead for that particular sign. One reason for this is that because you’re directly within the ‘house’ or the section of the Tai Sui God of the year.

This year, will be challenging for the people born under the sign of the Dragon because, as mentioned, you’re directly within the section of the Tai Sui God and you’re also in conflict with the Yellow Killing.

This is a year wherein you should be very careful in taking risk. You’ll find yourself constantly facing hindrances and problems. You should also be very careful in watching out for your health. But do not despair because I always believe that its useless to know about what may happen when you can’t prepare for it and deal with it. Knowing these things will help you to be on your guard and watch out for possible problems.

Feng Shui Protection: Piyao [also spelled as Pi Yao] (Pendant/Bracelet)/Dou Mu Yuan Jun [Goddess of the North Star] Pendant, Five Element Pagoda (Pendant/Key Chain), Jade Wulou, Ksitigarbha Fireball, Five Bat DZI (Pendant/Bracelet), Kalachakra Pendant

Piyao or Pi Yao is a mystical celestial creature which pacifies the Tai Sui God.

Dou Mu Yuan Jun or Goddess of the North Star is a powerful Deity to counter the effects of Tai Suey. She is said to be the creator of all the Tai Suey Gods does has the power to rule or control over them.

It is quite difficult to get a Dou Mu Yuan Jun pendant. However, I was recently able to get one that's made of 14k gold from Master Joseph Chau, the acclaimed Feng Shui expert. He also has the jade version, but I find the jade version too big and its more expensive than the gold one.

There are different versions of the 5-Element Pagoda. However, personally the original version and a small one, I believe, is okay and powerful enough to counter the effects of the 5-Yellow Star.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Kuan Yin Pendant/Tara Pendant/Kuan Kong Pendant, Ruyi, Mantra (Ring/Pendant), Sun Wukong aka Monkey God aka Great Sage Equal to Heaven (Pendant/Image)

Whenever I state here- Mantra Pendant- I refer to any Tibetan mantra which I think is one of the most powerful Buddhism and Feng Shui tools. However, OM MANI PADME HUM (pronounce as HUNG) is one of the most powerful one. It's the mantra of Bodhisattva of Compassion - Kuan Yin or Avalokitesvara or Chenrezig.

I also designed my very own Wealth and Master Protection pendant which is may be advisable for people born under the sign of the Dragon. Sometimes, it seems absurd to be wearing so many pendants, that’s why I thought of designing my own pendant which will address this concern. I initially designed this pendant for myself and for my family. However, when our friends found out about this we started making this for them. Ours is made of 14K yellow gold but we can make a silver one also. Please email me if interested, but I have to warn you that it’s a little pricey but this is something that can be use ‘forever’ you don’t have to change it yearly.

WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT is a pendant I designed so that I don't have to wear a lot of pendants around my neck. At the front is the image of Sun Wukong (aka Monkey God or Great Sage, Equal to Heaven). Sun Wukong is a very powerful wealth and protector deity. There has been a lot of confusion as to whether Sun Wukong is a Taoist(Daoist) Deity or a Buddhist Deity. The truth is Sun Wukong's story is quite uniique. He started as a Taoist deity and in the process became a Buddhist deity, thus, he is worshipped and revered both in Taoism and Buddhism. The pendant is made of 14k gold and weight around 13g. Friends started requesting me to make one for them also and I started having my jeweler make a silver version of the pendant. I'm also currently looking into the possibility of having the images carved into a jade thus making a JADE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT.

At the back of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT are the image of the Three Celestial Guardians (w/ implements) this is to help counter the effects of the 3 Killings and at the bottom is the 5-Element Pagoda to address the 5-Yellow Star and beside it on the right side is the Ksitigarbha Fireball fo counter the argumentative star. At the top is the Chinese character that says-GREAT SAGE, EQUAL TO HEAVEN. If I'm not mistaken this is the only Master Protection pendant that addresses different major concerns. The Pi Yao in the Three Celestial Guardians addresses the possible concerns brought about by the Tai Suey God. Sun Wukong and the Chilin in the 3 Celestial Guardians also addresses wealth and career luck. On top of that Sun Wukong is also a very powerful protector deity.

THE SNAKE…

had a good fortune the past couple of years, but this year its going to be a little bad for them. This is because they’re directly affected by the Five Yellow Killing Star.

Your chi or energy is going to beĀ  very unstable which may cause you to make a lot of wrong judgments or decisions. Financially, you will have to be very cautious. Do not overspend. Also be careful that you get into a legal case, because this may cause long term (years!) problem.

It’ll be wise for you to get yourself a wealth and protector deity like Sun Wukong (aka ‘Monkey God’ aka ‘Great Sage, Equal to Heaven’) and Kuan Kong (also spelled as Guan Gong)

On the love front, you may find yourself continuously arguing with your partner.

Furthermore, you should also be wary of the 3-Killings Star which may bring problem to your health or causes accidents, financial growth, and causes obstacle in your growth path

Feng Shui Protection: 5-Element Pagoda (Pendant or Key Chain), Sun Wukong Pendant/Kuan Kong Pendant, Three Celestial Guardians, Rooster (Pendant/Figurine), Ksitgarbha Fireball (Pendant/Key Chain)

Always look at the face of the Kuan Kong pendant that you're getting for yourself. The 'braver' the face the better.

Admittedly, its difficult to find a '3-Celestial Guardian' Pendant. A key chain will do. However, that's also the reason why I designed my WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT with the 3-Celestial Guardian at the back.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Amethyst Geode tied with a red string beside the bed, Ruyi (Pendant/Key Chain), 5 Bat DZI with Red Tiger’s Eye Beads.

Amethyst Geode with Red String.

5-Bat DZI has the image of five bats. Contrary to western belief that bats are scary and serves as a bad omen, bats actually brings good fortune.

I also designed my very own Wealth and Master Protection pendant which is may be advisable for people born under the sign of the Snake. Sometimes, it seems absurd to be wearing so many pendants, that’s why I thought of designing my own pendant which will address this concern. I initially designed this pendant for myself and for my family. However, when our friends found out about this we started making this for them. Ours is made of 14K yellow gold but we can make a silver one also. Please email me if interested, but I have to warn you that it’s a little pricey but this is something that can be use ‘forever’ you don’t have to change it yearly.

THE HORSE…

will fall flat on their face if they don’t learn to be humble and if they continue to cause ’emotional injury’ with their sharp words. Having said that, this is actually a good year for people born under the year of the Horse. Success may actually come easily but they may easily destroy this good luck by continuously creating bad karma with their malicious manipulative scheming minds.

People born under the sign of the horse also has good mentor luck meaning they might find themselves surrounded by people who can help them succeed. But they should be humble enough to acknowledge this help. Give credit where credit is due.

This year the horse is confronted by the 3-Killings Star, which may cause health problems and accidents, financial problem, and obstacle. You may be asking isn’t this conflicting with the earlier statements. It’s not, this only means that you have the luck but may be negated by the 3-Killings. In turn, the effects of the 3-Killings may be aggravated by the negative karma that a snake commits. So be very careful in not doing anything wrong. The Earth Horse born in the year 1978 has the biggest tendency to be create a negative karma by being boastful, hurtful with their words, and malicious.

Health luck is a little bad. Meaning you can get ill a lot this year.

Feng Shui Protectors: Three Celestial Guardians (Pendant), Ksitigarbha Fire Ball, Jade Wulou, and be nice and good.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Chilin, Sun Wukong (Pendant), Victory Banner (Pendant/Key Chain), Mystic Knot (Pendant/Key Chain)

A Chilin is another mystical celestial creature that helps in delivering career and financial success.

The Victory Banner is one of the 8 Auspicious Objects in Tibetan Buddhism. This is a powerful tool to help us achieve our goals.

I also designed my very own Wealth and Master Protection pendant which is may be advisable for people born under the sign of the Horse. Sometimes, it seems absurd to be wearing so many pendants, that’s why I thought of designing my own pendant which will address this concern. I initially designed this pendant for myself and for my family. However, when our friends found out about this we started making this for them. Ours is made of 14K yellow gold but we can make a silver one also. Please email me if interested, but I have to warn you that it’s a little pricey but this is something that can be use ‘forever’ you don’t have to change it yearly.

THE SHEEP/GOAT…

will have a good fortune this year. You might come across another interpretation that says that people born under the sign of the Sheep or Goat will have ‘conflicting’ year. I was actually surprised with this interpretation and thought I might have made a mistake, so what I did is I cross reference my interpretation and calculation of the stars with some of the best Feng Shui experts in Kong Kong and Singapore. I’m really glad that my interpretation and calculation is similar to these non-commercialized Feng Shui experts.

Anyway, you the Sheep will have good fortune this year of the Water Dragon. Financial luck is very good but be careful to rule with your head rather than with your heart. Don’t abuse your luck by being too bullish.

I believe, the reason why this other Feng Shui expert said that the Sheep will have a ‘conflicting’ year is because you’re flanked by the Three Killings Star and by the ‘Argumentative’ Star. To remedy this you can wear the Three Celestial Guardians and the Ksitigarbha Fireball.

Feng Shui Protector: 3-Celestial Guardians (Pendant/Key Chain), Ksitigarbha Fireball (Pendant/Key Chain).

The Ksitigarbha Fireball is a very powerful tool to prevent arguments. I prefer that this is worn as a pendant. I also decided to put the Ksitigarbha Fireball on my WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT. There are now many different versions of the fireball, I think this is just a marketing strategy to make people buy new items.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Ruyi (Pendant/Key Chain), Sun Wukong Pendant/Kuan Yin Pendant

I have several Kuan Yin pendants, some are made of jade. But my favorite is the small gold pendant because I can just wear it around my neck day and night, even while I'm taking a bath.

One other reason why this is my favorite is because it has the inscription of the Heart Sutra at the back. It is like wearing mantra. Buddhist believed that the Heart Sutra has the power to grant blessings and protection to those who has them on their body.

THE MONKEY…

has very good earth luck this year. This means you have the tendency to do well in ‘material’ things. However, heaven luck is a little low, which means relationships might be put to a test and that there might be a lot of argument. This year, its important for you to keep your cool and always think twice or thrice before you say something. Remember DON’T BE GREEDY.

Feng Shui Protectors: Ksitigarbha Fireball, Bodhi Tree or Leaf DZI (Pendant/Bracelet)/Lotus DZI (Pendant/Bracelet)

Bodhi DZI should be worn as a necklace and/or as a bracelet. If worn as bracelet strung it with an amethyst or jade beads.

The Lotus DZI can be worn as necklace and/or as a bracelet. If using it as a bracelet string it with red tiger's eye or rutilated quartz.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Kuan Yin Pendant, Om Ah Hum Pendant, Victory Banner Pendant/Key Chain

This particular OM AH HUM pendant was designed by Lillian Too and is sold on her Feng Shui Mall site.

THE ROOSTER…

maybe the luckiest sign this year! Financial luck is extremely stable while Career luck is also ‘shining’.

Love life is also extremely ‘abundant’, but this also may also have the potential to open doors to a 3rd party.

Health luck is also great, as long as you don’t totally abuse your body.

Feng Shui Protector: Double Happiness Pendant/Rooster (preferably) with Fan

Double Happiness

The rooster has the power to peck away the unwanted third party. The Fan has the power to change bad energies into good one. This particular pendant is available in WOFS.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Maitreya [Happy Fat Buddha] Pendant/Kuan Yin Pendant/Kuan Kong Pendant

Maiteya Buddha or the Happy Fat Buddha is a powerful diety to help neutralize highly negative scenarios. I always wear this particular pendant if I'm going to run into a 'heated' meeting.

THE DOG…

will have a challenging year ahead of them, this is because the Dog is in direct conflict with the Dragon, which means they’re also in direct ‘confrontational’ position with the Tai Sui (Tai Suey) God of the year.

This is not a good year for you to change career or put up a new business. There is also a possibility of a great financial loss.

A person born under the sign of the Dog will have to be careful about their health, also they should be careful not to get into depression.

Feng Shui Protectors: Piyao (Pendant/Bracelet)/Dou Mu Yuan Jun [Goddess of the North Star] Pendant, Ksitigarbha Fireball, Sun Wukong [aka Monkey God] Pendant, Ammonite Pendant, Kalachakra Pendant/Mantra Pendant, Jade Wulou

An Ammonite Fossilized Shell is a very powerful tool to negate negative energies. It also helps us achieve our goal and bring us financial and career success. However, ammonites are very expensive because this fossil actually preserved the shells formed by prehistoric cephalopods, which are extinct distant relatives of squids. I have two ammonites. I got one that's really affordable and I thought I got a good discount, it turn out that its a fake ammonite. I then looked for a real ammonite and eventually found one but it did cost quite a small fortune. But I'm happy with it because fake ammonites are basically useless.

The Kalachakra Pendant is one of the most powerful Buddhism tools to counter negative energies. Kalachakra doesn't have a direct translation in any other language but it loosely means 'the one with 10 powers'. It is also a very powerful protection pendant. You'll normally see Buddhist monk wear this somewhere around their body. I personally have 3 different Kalachakra pendants. One is made of crystal quartz engraved with a the Kalachakra, another one is made of stainless steel but enclose on it are colored Kalachakra sand and was personally blessed by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. The third Kalachakra pendant is a white gold Kalachakra with Kalachakra Mandala Sand from one of the Kalachakra initiation conducted by the Dalai Lama, this third piece is truly a collector's item because there are only 1,000 pieces made.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Sun Wukong Pendant, Amethyst (Pendant/Bracelet) with 5-Bat DZI

I also designed my very own Wealth and Master Protection pendant which is may be advisable for people born under the sign of the Dog. Sometimes, it seems absurd to be wearing so many pendants, that’s why I thought of designing my own pendant which will address this concern. I initially designed this pendant for myself and for my family. However, when our friends found out about this we started making this for them. Ours is made of 14K yellow gold but we can make a silver one also. Please email me if interested, but I have to warn you that it’s a little pricey but this is something that can be use ‘forever’ you don’t have to change it yearly.

THE BOAR/PIG…

will have a stable financial and career luck this year. This is the time of the year for people born under the sign of the Boar to take risks. It’s a good time for you to invest on good karma because this may be multiplied.

Feng Shui Protectors:

Feng Shui Enhancers: Mystic Knot (Pendant/Key Chain), Sun Wukong [aka Monky God] Pendant

The Mystic Knot has the power to enhance the 'good' luck of a person.
