A Hungry Ghost Haunting and the Power of Chung Kwei!

Published Agosto 22, 2017 by jptan2012

Today, allow me to share with you a story about a former colleague who was being haunted only during the Hungry Ghost Month. The weird thing about this is that she is not Chinese and was not even familiar with the concept of Hungry Ghost Month, and mind you this happened more than 15 years ago when Filipinos might have heard of Feng Shui but are not aware of the Hungry Ghost Month or Ghost Month.

After not seeing Joyce for about a couple of years I suddenly got a call from her. She said she got my number from another former colleague and that she was not aware that I’m familiar with Feng Shui. She also said that it was another former colleague who told her to give me a call to ask for help. I have written about this colleague and he is the one who had buried dogs within their compound.

According to Joyce, once a year for several weeks she will see an image of two spirits in their house. She will see them on their window on their ground floor living room. Sometimes, they will just pass by or sometimes they seem to be looking for something. This is not something that happens everyday, but if it happens, it will happen often and will last for several weeks. She later said around 3 weeks to 5 weeks. Sometimes it will have several nights consecutively and sometimes it will happen once then several nights free of haunting then it will strike again.

There are times that when she goes home late, she will see these spirits outside their house seemingly wanting to get in. Sometimes she will see them in their garden. But she said lately (at the time that she consulted me) she sees them inside their house, and she was quite sure that those are the same spirits that haunts her every year.

She said that this has always bothered her but she cannot do anything because no one else seems able to see the spirits. And she contacted me because lately the spirits seems to be stronger and has moved inside their house. One time she saw them inside her parents’ room. Several times she saw them under the dining table, and what really scared her is that she often sees them inside her sick grandmother’s bedroom! As if this is not bothersome enough, the two spirits seems to be pulling her grandmother’s feet.

It was August when she called me and when she said that it happens only once a year for a period of several weeks, I knew then that it only happens during the Hungry Ghost Month. So I asked her whether it usually happens between July and September with slight variations. And she said yes. So it was easy to determine that those spirits were Hungry Ghosts.

I’m unable to communicate with spirits and neither am I an expert with this kind of matter. As to why they visit only during Hungry Ghost Month is obvious that they used to be humans who became Hungry Ghosts, but why that place and why are they only visible only to Joyce, that I cannot answer. However, the private nurse of Joyce’s grandmother claims that sometimes she can feel some presence in the room, and several times she seems to be awaken by something moving inside the room. Joyce’s grandmother can’t move. Several times also their house help and her mom claims to also feel some presence and sometimes they’ll hear a very faint moaning of anguish. So faint that they are not sure whether they heard something at all.

Chung Kwei Black Jade

This is a rare black jade pendant image of Chung Kwei. Was fortunate enough to find one in Beijing, China in a small shop. Remember in choosing a Chong Kwei or Chung Kwei or Zhung Kwei or Zhong Kwei, always get a something that’s made of a black stone or gold. Otherwise, it might not be very effective.

At that time the Vajrapani Ruel is not yet available, so the only thing that will definitely work for her situation is an image of Chung Kwei (also spelled as Chong Kwei, Chung Kui, Chong Kui, Zhong Kwei, Zhong Kui, Zhung Kwei, and Zhung Kui) made of high grade obsidian or gold or black jade. And so that’s what I gave her to use.

And according to Joyce since having Chung Kwei (one placed at their door and another one for her to wear) she has never seen the spirits again. That he was more than 15 years ago. To this day Joyce has kept Chung Kwei hanging in their living room and she has decided to constantly wear the her Chung Kwei pendant.

Please note that in getting a Chune Kwei it is only effective if it is made of high grade obsidian, gold, or black jade. A black tourmaline and onyx may work also. Lately there has been a proliferation of fake obsidian/onyx/black tourmaline Chung Kwei in Chinatown and in the malls.

A Lunar Eclipse, A Solar Eclipse, and the Hungry Ghost Month: A Warning that We Should All Try To Keep Safe!

Published Agosto 14, 2017 by jptan2012

A few days ago, BM, a reader and a friend from Davao, who regular readers of this blog would be familiar by this time, asked me about this year’s Hungry Ghost Month. She wants to know whether it is going to be particularly bad. If you look at the relation of the coming of the Hungry Ghost Month with the flying star of August and September, the effects should not be very bad, and so I told her that this year’s Hungry Ghost Month although we should still be very careful is not in any way particularly stronger unless you are born in the year of the Horse, Snake or Sheep.

However, when I said this I was really busy and haven’t really taken the time out to look at formation of the stars thoroughly, and so I was greatly surprised that during one of my business meetings, one of my clients who knows that I’m a Feng Shui writer asked me about the effects of the lunar eclipse. I was surprised because of my busy schedule I didn’t even realized that we just had a lunar eclipse, albeit a partial one. But of course this had me worried already, because every lunar eclipse is definitely followed by solar eclipse, and when I checked I found out that it would be a total solar eclipse!

Now whether we see the solar eclipse here in Asia or not is irrelevant because the effects is definitely worldwide.

I have written in previous articles that an eclipse is almost always a bad omen. This is whether the eclipse is solar or lunar. For this year’s solar eclipse, what makes it dreadful is that it happens on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Month, and I have never ever recalled than an eclipse happening on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Month, and this is most certainly an indication that something big either worldwide or to several countries will happen during the Hungry Ghost Month or will start during the Hungry Ghost Month.

In my annual forecast, I said something might happen on the 3rd quarter of this year, and this full solar eclipse on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Month seems to have validated this forecast, and so all of us have to be careful and take extra precaution. It will also greatly help if we can include in our prayers or dedication of merits our countries, the welfare of this world, and also the leaders of this world and of our countries.

On a personal level, it is best to stay indoor during the actual eclipse, and is also highly advisable to wear the Kalachakra Pendant, or carry the Vajrapani Ruel with a Chung Kwei. This is because this phenomenon also has the power wreak some bad luck in our lives. Financial problems might occur especially to those who are in the midst of big transition, or worst health or safety issues might arise especially to those who whose job or lifestyle is already putting them at risk more than a normal person is and definitely those who are already sick.

Regular readers of this blog knows that I hate being a messenger of doom, but this is something that we really need to face and be ready for. And as I always say, the reason we know these things in advance because we can do something about it.

Chant – A – Mantra (4): Effective Mantras to Chant During the Hungry Ghost Month!

Published Agosto 6, 2016 by jptan2012

Regular readers of this blog would already know that the Hungry Ghost Month is one of the most dreaded month of the year. This year it falls on August. But the Hungry Ghost Month or Ghost Month happens on the 7th month of the lunar calendar.

In the previous posts, I’ve talked about the cures and amulets one needs but I also make sure that I supplement these with protective mantras. You will notice that these mantras are the mantras I already chant everyday but what I do during Hungry Ghost Month is to chant these mantras again one more full mala before I go to sleep in the evening, or if I have to go out in the evening.

The protective mantras for the Hungry Ghost Month are the following:

OM VAJRAPANI HUM (Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani) – aside from always making sure that I have the Vajrapani Ruel with me, I also add a few more rounds of mala of the mantra of Vajrapani Bodhisattva. This is to ensure not only of my protection both physically and psychically, but this is also to help ensure that I still get some financial luck during the Ghost Month.

OM AMI DEWA HRIH (Mantra of Buddha Amitabha)

NAMO QIE LAN SHENG CHONG PU SA (Mantra of Bodhisattva Sangharama)

OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT (Mantra of the Tantric Deity Kalachakra) – wearing the Kalachakra symbol made of gold is also a very powerful protection.

TADYATHA OM ANALÈ ANALÈ KHASAMÈ KHASAMÈ BHAYRÈ BHAYRÈ SAUMA SAUMÈ SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTÎTÈ SOHA TADYATHA OM USHINISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NÌ SOHA (Mantra of the White Umbrella Goddess – Ushinisha Sitataputra)

I bet most of you will have some story to share on what happened with this and that person. Amongst my FB friends, 2 have died and several others have family members who died or are going through something at the moment.

A nurse who is a reader informed that in their hospital deaths amongst patients has dramatically increased that the medical director had to call for a meeting to check whether they are doing anything wrong. Their record shows that death is higher between July and August of each year but it is so much higher this year.

Need I say more? These are just some of the obvious effects of the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month. To understand it further please do read my previous post entitled – WHAT EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE.

Yes these things happens also even if its not the Hungry Ghost Month, but what you should look at here is the intensity and frequency of these things.

To protect yourself please read my post – PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE ILL EFFECTS OF THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE.

However, it’s very important that you don’t just protect yourself, we should do something for the world. We should be able to do something to help avert further tragedy.
I have been very busy the past few days and did some unavoidable traveling but I got a call from my Guru Lama who instructed me to write that several temples are offering the recitation of the mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha and Medicine Buddha, each mantra will be recited 100,000 times a day! I know 2 temples that are doing the same thing here in the Philippines with several pujas and offerings being done to help counter the worldwide effect of one of the worst Hungry Ghost month ever.

You can ask your local temple, if not you can do it at home. For most people 100,000 chants of each of the Buddha and Bodhisattva mentioned can be overwhelming but according to my Guru Lama do 10,000 times for each and it will help a lot. If that is still a little too much for you just chant them as many as you can something and anything is better than nothing.

If possible, just before 6pm, get a handful of rock salt and just toss it outside of your house. Do this everyday until Sept. 5, 2014.

Please remember to specifically dedicate after saying mantras to the protection of the world from the hungry ghost month.

It is the hope of different monks that by doing this a lot of the ill effects will either be averted or tamed.

But reciting the said mantras will protect you as well.
Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion: OM MANI PADME HUM
Mantra of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha: OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM or OM PRA MANI DANI SOHA or NAMO KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA or NAMO DI ZHANG WANG PUSA
Mantra of Medicine Buddha: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE (BHEKANDZYE) RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

Effects of the Dreaded Hungry Ghost Month

Published Hulyo 18, 2012 by jptan2012

Yesterday we talked about the DREADED HUNGRY GHOST MONTH, and as mentioned in yesterday’s post, the Hungry Ghost Month is basically the time when hungry ghosts are released from hell so that they can eat. However, because a lot of these hungry ghosts lived a negative life or died violent deaths, a lot of them still harbor ill feelings brought about their fate, so when they’re released from hell, they also tend to do bad things to us.

I don’t think anybody has properly documented all the effects of the dreaded Hungry Ghost Month but some of the known effects are the following.

INCREASE PARANORMAL OR GHOST MANIFESTATIONS, but not all paranormal manifestations are done by hungry ghosts, sometimes it’s really just some wandering spirits that you wouldn’t normally see or feel but because of the heightened yin energy and paranormal energy brought by the Hungry Ghost month, you’ll become more sensitive to them. Having said that, it is also fairly normal to see some scary ghosts, these usually would be one of the hungry ghosts.

I once talked to a Filipina nurse, who is not aware of the Hungry Ghost month. We were talking about her job in one of the big hospitals in the country. I asked her whether night duties in the hospital give her the creeps. She said, she has gotten used to night duties, and shared that hospitals are not really very scary in the evening. But she concluded that she wonders why in her experience, a lot of patients usually complain about ghostly manifestation around August and not during Halloween. She clarified that sure enough that they will hear stories about ghosts from patients, colleagues, other hospital staffs, relative of patients from time to time, but having worked as a nurse for 14 years; she noticed that stories usually heightened sometime in August.

INCREASE NUMBER OF ACCIDENTS usually happens during the Hungry Ghost month. When I was still working as a feature story producer in one of the leading broadcast media in the Philippines I worked on a story about the rate of accidents here in the Philippines. Again, an accident happens all throughout the year, however, there’s an increase number of accidents happening around August. More than that accidents that happened in August tends to be more severe thus taking more lives.

INCREASE NUMBER OF CRIME also happens during the Hungry Ghost Month. Again, in the same feature show that I produced for, we did a story about crime. We went to three different police stations in QC, Manila, and Pasig. Surprisingly, crime rates increases sometime around August, more than that the crimes that increased is not holdup or petty theft, what increases are murder and homicide.

INCREASE NUMBER OF HOSPITAL DEATHS AND/OR UNEXPLAINABLE MEDICAL PROBLEMS FROM USUAL MEDICAL PROCEDURES also happens. The same Filipina nurse I mentioned to you in the earlier part of this post also said that there are more deaths and normal medical procedures going wrong around August. When I was doing the accident and crime story, I was able to verify that indeed hospitals have more deaths occurring around August.

INCREASE CHANCES OF BUSINESS FAILURE also happens during the Hungry Ghost Month. A Taiwanese media outfit also conducted on a the effects of the Hungry Ghost Month on business, their research showed that more business close or starts to go bankrupt around the Hungry Ghost Month, furthermore, businesses that were opened during the Hungry Ghost Month tend to do badly.

There are a lot more negative effects of a Hungry Ghost Month; the list can go on and on. On my next posts, I’ll share with you the rituals usually done during the Hungry Ghost Month and/or Hungry Ghost Festival. Also I would be sharing with you ways on how you can protect yourself during this season. I am a great believer of Feng Shui because it gives you tools to counteract negative things.

But before that, allow me to share a few, a fraction, of some of the famous things that happened during the Hungry Ghost Month.

  1. 9/11 Attack. The 911 attacks on the Twin Tower is perhaps one of the most high profile cases worldwide that happened during the Hungry Ghost Month. To be exact, it happened on the second to the last day of the Hungry Ghost Month of that year.
  2. Death of Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed also happened during the Hungry Ghost Month.
  3. Britain’s Great Train Robbery happened during the Hungry Ghost Month.
  4. Elvis Presley died right on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Festival.
  5. The Munich Massacre happened four days after the Hungry Ghost Festival.
  6. The collapse of China’s Hunan Bridge, which coincided with the collapse of the 40 year old interstate highway bridge spanning the Mississippi River in Minnesota, USA also happened during the Hungry Ghost Month.
  7. In August 7, 1998, an innocent looking truck drove up to the then US embassy and planted a powerful bomb. More than 200 people were killed in its wake.

In the Philippines…

  1. The Payatas tragedy that buried about 500 scavengers happened at the start of the ghost month that year. A 50-foot garbage fell on their houses at the height of a torrential rain.
  2. On August 3, 1999, heavy torrential rains caused a landslide that killed 58 people and buried over 100 houses at Cherry Hills Subdivision in Antipolo City.
  3. On July 16, 1990, an earthquake that registered 7.7 on the Richter scale killed 1,700 people, injured 3,000 individuals and displaced 148,000.
  4. On July 2, 1993 a floating pagoda carrying hundred of Catholic devotees during the annual pagoda festival in Bocaue, Bulacan sank into the muddy Bocaue River, killing more about half of the devotees who rode the pagoda. It was the start of the Hungry Ghost Month of that year.
  5. The ABC-5 news team involve in a tragic vehicular accident that killed all 3 passenger happened during the Hungry Ghost Month.
  6. The typhoon Ondoy tragedy in 2009 happened at the end of the Hungry Ghost Month.
  7. The Manila Hostage Crisis or what is officially known as the Rizal Park hostage-taking incident, that lasted several hours, injured several of the hostages, killed several people including the HK tourists, the hostage takers and hit the tourism industry in the country happened not only during the Hungry Ghost Month, but more that that it happened on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Festival.

The list continues but I would like to clarify that obviously not all accidents or catastrophes happens during the Hungry Ghost Month, for example the Indian Ocean Tsunami, Japan Earthquake and Tsunami happened far from the Hungry Ghost Month. What we’re saying is that incidents do tend to be worst or the chances of individuals getting into bad things are heightened during the Hungry Ghost Month.

The Dreaded Hungry Ghost Month

Published Hulyo 17, 2012 by jptan2012

One of the most famous Chinese festivals, other than Chinese New Year and Moon Cake Festival, is the Hungry Ghost Festival, which also happens to be one of the most dreaded festival and month of the Chinese.

The Hungry Ghost Festival happens on the 15th day of the 7th lunar month, however, unlike the other festivals, like the Chinese New Year wherein the changing of the Flying Stars happens on a specified time and date, the preparation and effect of the Hungry Ghost Month, as the term indicates, lasts for a month. It actually starts on the first day of the 7th lunar month, peaks on the 15th day, which is the Hungry Ghost Festival, and ends on the last day of the 7th lunar month.

Every year, if you follow the Gregorian/Western calendar, the Hungry Ghost Month lands on different dates. Sometimes, it starts in July and ends in August, or starts in August and ends in September. But it always cuts across August of the Gregorian calendar. For this year (2012), the Hungry Ghost Month starts on August 17 and ends on September 15. The peak is on August 30, 2012, which is the date of the Hungry Ghost Festival.

But what is the Hungry Ghost Festival or Hungry Ghost Month?

Hungry Ghost Month is actually simply called Ghost Month (鬼月, Guǐ Yuè) in Chinese, the word Hungry is added in the words Ghost Months to clarify the nature of the ghosts that best characterized this season…they’re HUNGRY!

During this month, it is believed that the King of Hell opens the gate of hell to release and allow the spirits in hell or ghosts to be free and roam our world. It is believed that the hungry ghosts will visit families and other humans, thus it is said that there’d be more paranormal and ghostly manifestation during this month. Furthermore, hungry ghosts will also look for victims that they can bring with them to hell, and thus there’d be more accidents, more than that because of the strong yin and negative energy of this season, business becomes bad and it is highly advisable that one shouldn’t sign any contract, move to a new house, get operated on during the entire Hungry Ghost Month.

Why are they considered hungry?

Buddhism and Taoism both have a slightly different version of the Hungry Ghost. For Buddhism, Hungry Ghost is in one of the Six Realms of Existence, and they are simply a form of existence. However, for Taoism, Hungry Ghosts are (1) spirits of people who have not yet gone through a reincarnation and are largely forgotten by their descendants, (2) spirits of really bad people and they’re currently being punished, (3) spirits of really sad people who died of a violent death or suicide, (4) lost spirits who harbored so much yin energy or yin feelings while they were sill living.

They’re hungry because they are unable to get food from their living love ones because their violent or yin dominant death has blocked their connection with their loved ones, they don’t have any love ones on earth, or simply they have been forgotten. It is said that a deceased love one will have connection with us for a few more years, and depending on how we treat their spirits they may enter the samsara (cycle of life) immediately or go to hell as an hungry ghost. It is also said that ghost still needs sustenance in the other existence, and they get it from us in the form of offerings. These people not receiving any are then thrown into the pit of hell and become hungry ghosts.

Since most of these ghosts lived a negative life or died a violent death, many of them still harbor ill feelings towards their fate, so when they’re released they also try to do us harm. Thus all of us need to be extra careful.
