Life’s 8 Aspirations and How to Enhance Them!

Published Mayo 29, 2018 by jptan2012

 

When I decided with Guru Lama that this blog will end and that before it happens I will set out to write more articles that will focus on empowering and teaching you about handling, understanding, and fixing your Feng Shui if it needs to be fixed, I didn’t realize that I was setting up myself for a daunting task.

It is very difficult to teach Feng Shui online and to a non – Chinese speaking audience because there are a lot of intricacies in Feng Shui that highly relies on the element of the word. For example, there are words in Chinese that connotes the same thing but because of a minor difference in how it was written would mean that this word is more of a wood element, water element, and so on and so forth.

This is also the reason why I noticed that some of my friends who has taken up online Feng Shui courses usually find themselves having more problems, and I stress AT TIMES, because they were not given the minor but yet very important intricacies.

Nevertheless, I will still try to teach you as much as I can without putting you at risk in understanding something incomplete which might lead to doing a Feng Shui blunder instead.

Today, allow me to share with you in what is called as “LIFE’S EIGHT ASPIRATIONS” in Feng Shui. These 8 aspirations are what makes our life complete and if everything goes well with our life’s 8 aspirations it is said that we will be a happy person and also it means that we have a very good luck or good karma.

Our life’s eight aspirations consist of the following: (1) Love or Relationship; (2) Descendant Luck; (3) Mentor Luck; (4) Career Luck; (5) Education / Knowledge Luck; (6)Family / Health Luck; (7) Wealth Luck; (8) Fame / Recognition Luck. Not necessarily in this order, but the ideal situation is that they should all be equal and not imbalance. Although truth be told I seldom see a person who has a very balance 8 aspirations, but this doesn’t mean that it is bad it just means that he has more of the other than the rest.

Allow me now to discuss each of the aspirations and how to enhance them on a personal level.

First, LOVE & RELATIONSHIP LUCK. We all want to be loved, but this luck is more than finding a romantic love but this controls all aspects of your relationship luck in life. Even family relationship. To enhance this, you can use MANDARIN DUCKS, the DOUBLE HAPPINESS SYMBOL, SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET(1) or TRADITIONAL SUTRA AMULET(1).

Second, is DESCENDANT LUCK. This luck is about having children, grandchildren. But this luck is also about creativity. To activate this luck for descendant luck, you can use an ELEPHANT WITH THE TRUNKS UP, PEACHES, SURANGAMA MANRTRA AMULET(2), TRADITIONAL SUTRA AMULET(2) or VAJRAPANI RUEL(1). For creativity, you can use a SMALL GLOBE.

Third is MENTOR LUCK which is sometimes called as the BENEFACTOR LUCK. This luck ensures that you’ll have the support of your parents, bosses, or that people will always come to your help when you are in need, or the type of people that can help you achieve the things that you want to achieve. To activate or empower this luck, wear a gold or jade image of BODHISATTVA SANGHARAMA or carry the VAJRAPANI RUEL(2).

Fourth is the CAREER LUCK. This is quite self-explanatory but I have to add that this pertain to business advancement also. To activate this luck, carry a RUYI with you or carry the VAJRAPANI RUEL(3) and/or the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS & LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULETS(1).

Fifth is the EDUCATION or KNOWLEDGE LUCK! We don’t stop learning, even if we are already working we need to continue to learn to make sure that we are ahead of the game. To activate or empower this luck get yourself a GENERATOR CRYSTAL made of AMETHYST or CLEAR QUARTZ. Likewise, you can also have a crystal pendulum worn around your neck.

Sixth is the FAMILY AND HEALTH LUCK. You may ask why family is included here again, shouldn’t it be in the love or relationship luck. Actually, as mentioned earlier in the article, family is included in the love/relationship luck but it is also here because one very important thing in Feng Shui is family, we need a healthy family and by healthy it doesn’t refer to health as in physical health of the family although it certainly is included also. In Feng Shui, aside from the actual relationships, family is considered as one “being” so it’s health has to be taken care of also. Health also here includes avoiding illness, accidents, and violence. So, to make this luck positively good, it is will be good to carry with you the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET(1), VAJRPANI RUEL(4), and/or the GOLD KALACHAKRA PENDANT. For the family, it is good to place in the house a TRADITIONAL SUTRA AMULET(3) and/or a SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET(3).

The seventh is WEALTH LUCK. In Buddhism, Taoism, and Feng Shui money is not considered the root of all evil. The root of all evil is our greed. With that in all three, acquiring wealth is actually either encouraged or tolerated. To activate wealth luck, you can read my post entitled –  FENG SHUI TIPS TO ENHANCE WEALTH LUCK, FINANCIAL LUCK, AND MONEY LUCK! – but lately and as can be attested by a number of my readers the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO(1), the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET(1), and the VAJRAPANI RUEL(5) are some of the most powerful wealth amulets that one can have. I haven’t been writing a lot of personal testimonies about them only because of my commitment to focus on empowering articles.

And finally, the eight is the FAME or RECOGNITION LUCK. This luck is not just about being famous, but more importantly it is about being recognized. You might say I don’t need to be famous, and obviously those who are famous has a very strong fame luck. But remember, even if one doesn’t want to be famous, we cannot deny that you have to be recognized for your contribution, or for your effort. To activate this luck, one can carry the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS & LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET(2), VAJRAPANI RUEL(6).

I’m already putting here what you need here because these are perpetual amulets or cures that one needs for each of the 8 aspirations.

Rituals to Appease and Protect Oneself from the Hungry Ghosts

Published Hulyo 19, 2012 by jptan2012

In my last two posts, I talked about and introduced to you the DREADED HUNGRY GHOST MONTH and also talked about the EFFECTS OF THE HUNGRY GHOST MONTH.

As I always said it is useless to know about all these things if we are unable to protect ourselves. It is because of this that I would like to share with you some rituals that we can do to help protect us from the ill effects of the Hungry Ghost Month and the Hungry Ghost Festival.

Some people will make more elaborate offerings liek the one depicted in the photo. However, simply offerings the ones that I’ve listed are good enough.

First, you must KEEP THE HUNGRY GHOSTS ‘HAPPY’, and you do this by feeding them. Some people say that you should do this every single day of the Hungry Ghost Month, but some say you should do this only on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Festival. Personally, I think this should be done every single day of the Hungry Ghost Month from the first day to the last.

What you need to do is quite simple. You need to put a bowl of cooked rice; a small cup of rice wine or any liquor; 3 different bowls of beans (red beans, chick peas, mung beans); a small slab of tofu or bean curd; a piece of any kind of fruit; a bowl of cooked peanuts; and a small portion of meat – any meat will do. Optional are lighting of 2 red candles and 2 incense sticks. However, I do these two as well. Also, you should put some Yin Money or Hell’s Money, which in the Philippines is available in Ongpin or any Chinatown. I also leave some real coins, which is considered as Yang Money, to balance the Yin energy of the Hell’s Money.

You should leave these things outside your main door. If you have a gate, you can also do this outside your gate, but if might cause some problems, just the main door of your house will do. I leave all these things outside the house for a full month of the Hungry Ghost Month, and only replacing some of the food if they start to spoil or rot.

Some people say that the bigger amount you put the better. But just follow your instincts and put just enough.

By doing this, you are preventing the Hungry Ghosts to enter your house to ‘look for food’, and sometime food can be your chi.

You can also do this in your office. If you happen to pass by an establishment or house that has this kind offering outside, it is customary to put some coins or small bills. It is like dropping and blessing the hungry ghosts with some yang energy to help them re-enter samsara (cycle of life).

At the end of Hungry Ghost Month, throw away the all the food and burn Hell’s Money. Donate the coins to a temple or church.

VISIT YOUR ANCESTORS’ grave or in the case of the Buddhist their spirit dwelling tablet. Light some incense and offer some food. It’s best to do this at the first 7 days of the Hungry Ghost Month.

VISIT A TAOIST OR BUDDHIST TEMPLE to ask for protection. Praying to any Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity or Immortal is acceptable, but if possible visit a Taoist temple or Buddhist temple that has the images of the known protectors like Amitabha Buddha, Sun Wukong, Kuan Kong, Chung Kwei. Try to offer some fruits, flowers and incense.

LIGHT SOME LOTUS CANDLES. Lotus candles are simple candles made in the shape of a lotus, this is because lotus symbolizes purity and by lighting lotus candle you bless the hungry ghost with yang energy and purity. Two things that they need most to get out of hell.

Lotus Candles. You can also simply get candles in lotus shaped glass.

LIGHT SOME RED LANTERNS outside of your house (or window or balcony if living in a high rise) the whole month of the Hungry Ghost Month if you live near the ocean, river, lake or any body of water and if possible, let some lotus candle float on the body water on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Month.

PUT SALT ON YOUR DOORSTEP, WINDOWS, AND EVERY CORNER OF THE HOUSE. This is to ensure that the place is constantly cleansed of any form of Yin energy.

CONSTANTLY PLAY SOME MANTRA OR SUTRA in your house. You can do this by buying some CD or altar paraphernalia that constantly play different kinds of mantra or sutras. You do this not to drive them away, although it may drive them away, but more importantly to help them get the benefit of the mantra.

People watching the Chinese Opera. Notice the empty front chairs, they’re reserved for the Hungry Ghosts.

PLAY THE CHINESE OPERA on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Festival. In the olden time, Chinese Opera are played by actors on the street to an ‘empty’ audience. This is because it is believed that the Opera will distract the Hungry Ghosts and not wreak havoc. Nowadays, living people also watch these operas, but they usually leave the first one or two rows empty, because they’re reserved for the Hungry Ghosts.

Of course, it’s not practical for you to play the opera, what some people do is put a TV set or a radio and just leave it on to a ‘happy’ program. It is said that this will distract the hungry ghosts and make them believe that there are real people and therefore they won’t enter your house. The energy that you’re emitting by playing the radio or TV is also a yang energy that attracts them.
