5 Ways to Protect Yourself From Evil Eye and/or Witchcraft!

Published Hunyo 16, 2016 by jptan2012

“How do I protect myself from witchcraft or evil eye?”

I have been asked this question a lot. That if I were to charge ten Philippine peso per person every time I’m asked this question, I would have earned several thousands of peso by now.

In order to save time from answering this question, I thought I’d just write about it.

But before we talk about that, it begets the question as to evil eye or witchcraft is real?

If we were to base our answer on Buddhist Sutras and Taoist texts, the answer is definitely yes. In fact, one of the Shakyamuni Buddha’s disciple, Ananda, was bewitched by a witch so that he will break his vow of celibacy and sleep with her daughter who happens to be a hospitality girl. This is where the Surangama Mantra started, and it was followed by the Surangama Sutra.

Evil Eye is basically “usog” in Filipino. This happens when a person who has a strong neutral or bad chi looks at you and intentionally or unintentionally wish you bad thing, and that bad thing happens to you. Or when a person gives you that look and you start to get sick. This is quite common than we realize.

Witchcraft on the other hand is not very common. I believe that it still exist, however, it is not as common as most people think it is. Doing witchcraft is much more complicated and requires a lot of chi. however, contrary to popular belief, despite the negative connotation of the word; witchcraft does not necessary mean evil. There are positive witchcraft, it really depends on what energy you use. But for the purpose of this article, witchcraft here refers to something evil or bad.

Here are top 5 ways to protect yourself from evil eye or witchcraft:

STAY POSITIVE AND STAY GOOD. If we stay positive and if we stay good we only attract positive chi. this should help protect us from all those evil eyes or negative power of witchcraft.

WEAR AN AMETHYST OR CLEAR QUARTZ. Wearing these two crystals will provide us with a positive auric shield. However, this is only effective for evil eyes and light form of witchcraft. If you are attacked with something stronger then this definitely will not work.

TAKE A SALT BATH. If you suspect that you got the evil eye or witchcraft is being done to you. Take a salt bath, make sure you use rock salt, sea salt, pink Himalayan salt, or the rare black salt. Put approximately 1 tablespoon of the salt on a small pail of water and use this at the start before you shampoo or soap yourself. For a bathtub, use about a cup and soak in it for a minimum of 5 minutes. Do this for one to three days for evil eye. If you suspect witchcraft, do this for 7 to 21 days.

WEAR A POWERFUL AMULET. One of the best ways to protect you from evil eye and witchcraft is to wear some powerful amulet. My favorite is definitely the one that is regarded as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon called Vajrapani Ruel, but of course the Surangama Mantra Amulet blessed by a high ranking monk should work very well as well, the Illness Suppression Amulet is also a very good protective amulet for evil and witchcraft. The Jatukam Ramathep Amulet is also a very powerful amulet for this purpose.

CHANT PROTECTIVE MANTRAS IN A DEEP MEDITATIVE STATE. Chanting protective mantras in a deep meditative state, in a state that you are almost not aware of your surroundings is a very good protection against evil eye or witchcraft. The following mantras should prove helpful if chanted one after the other: (1.) OM AMI DEWA HRIH       (2.) NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CHALE CHULE CHUNDI SOHA       (3.) TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHNISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NI SOHA.

Chant it 108x each mantra.

Planting Flowers In Front of the House Helps Deflect Bad Chi!

Published Nobyembre 30, 2014 by jptan2012

Singapore is such a small place that very few people have their own stand-alone house. And a lot of times, those who have their own house become unintentional target for the jealous evil eye. I say unintentional targets because people who envy them unintentionally send out negative chi to them. houseflowers
However, there is a simple cure for this and that is you only need to plant flowers in front of your house. Aside from creating good chi and deflect negative chi caused by the evil eye because of jealousy, this also serves as a distraction wherein people will notice first and admire the beauty of the flowers before admiring the house which may seem extravagant for a country that has very limited space.
Of course, while this is a common practice in Singapore, this is a Feng Shui cure that is applicable to all of us. houseflowers3

Drive Bad Luck Away With A Natural Feng Shui Cure

Published Hunyo 13, 2014 by jptan2012

Today I would again like to share a short post on how a person can use natural Feng Shui remedy to drive away bad luck.

I love sharing natural Feng Shui remedies because I know that most Feng Shui cures like the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, or those that use jade or natural precious or semi – precious stones can get quite pricey. The only draw back with using natural Feng Shui cures is that you have to replace them quite often, at best and depending on the weather, they may last up to 2 weeks.pomelo

If you are experiencing some bad luck you can use the pomelo fruit or pomelo leaves to drive the bad luck away. What you can do is put unripe pomelo in your living room and/or dining room. One pomelo will do but making it 3 pieces will be great. If you have an altar, in lieu of the living room, you can put it on your altar instead. If the bad luck is really bad and affects the whole family, you can put one piece of unripe of pomelo in each of the room of the house. Take them out when they’ve ripened. Eat them or give them away after you’ve used them as a Feng Shui cure. Replace them with new pomelos if things haven’t gotten better.

You can also use pomelo leaves, boil them in water and use the water to wash yourself. It will definitely help in driving the bad luck or bad chi away!

Is Keeping A Picture of A Dead Person Creates Bad Chi?

Published Hunyo 4, 2014 by jptan2012

I know that yesterday’s article about embracing a tomb and taking pictures of it creates bad chi. I know that people will now ask whether keeping a picture of a loved one will also create bad chi.

Generally speaking in Feng Shui keeping a picture of dead person creates bad chi. However, there are some exceptions to the rule because one has to consider other factors that creates energy.

Pope John Paul IIFor example, for Catholics Pope John Paul II and Mother Teresa are people who died, but I don’t think keeping their picture will create bad chi because a lot of the Catholics considers them as living saints. To relate it to a Buddhist perspective, they are people who exude so much positive chi while they are living that their very image creates positive chi because it can only invoke positivity.

However, keeping a picture of Adolf Hitler at face value is bad because he embodies evilness, at least to most people. I would like to clarify though that I’m not here to judge the core humanness of the names that I mentioned above, but I’m only judging as the facts in history presents itself. In Buddhism, no one can judge a person is good or bad despite of their acts because no one can judge the core value or belief or reason for an act.

Keeping a picture of a dead person that you don’t personally know will also create bad chi, because there is nothing that will change that energy. However, keeping a picture of a person that you love, will not create bad chi, because the feeling of love towards the person should create enough positive chi to either temper it if not kill the bad chi.

Most Chinese will keep a picture and an alter of a dead relative. This usually creates good chi because one continues to ‘nurture’ the love by offering incense and/or food to the dead ancestor. However, this only becomes bad when the time has come that the younger generation feels neither love nor respect to the dead ancestor. Then the bond starts to break and there will be no buffer for the bad chi.

In summary, it is bad to keep a picture of a dead person because it creates bad chi. However, a ‘living saint’ and love creates much stronger positive chi that the bad chi these pictures create.

Embracing a Tomb and Taking Pictures of It Attracts Bad Chi!

Published Hunyo 2, 2014 by jptan2012

tombThe other day a friend showed me a feed on his Facebook about a mother who went to her daughter’s tomb. The mother took pictures of the tomb while she was embracing the tomb. This bothered me because what she was doing is attracting a lot of bad chi.

I believe I’ve mentioned in my previous posts that it is better to cremate a person, because a tomb will create a Feng Shui energy that will certainly affect the family of the deceased and the future generations. This aspect of Feng Shui that deals with the tomb is called Yin Feng Shui, and personally I don’t want to deal with it, it is much more difficult aspect of Feng Shui. Cremating a person will devoid any form of chi or energy thus in Feng Shui it is a preferred mode of internment.

However, as mentioned this mom took pictures of her visiting the tomb of her child and posted it on Facebook. This should be fine if one wants to share her feelings to friends and families who are abroad, but I think embracing the tomb is a little too extreme.

Generally speaking in Feng Shui taking pictures of a tomb creates bad energy, it is literally copying and/or duplicating the Yin energy of the tomb. Needless to say, that is bad.

This mom went a little further, she lied on top of the tomb and acted like she is embracing the tomb. What she is doing is fully absorbing the yin energy of the tomb, which is a very bad thing to do. You might think or say that she is only a mom who misses her child so much that she embraced the tomb because she feels that the body of her child is in the tomb. This may be true, but at the risk of sounding cruel or heartless, it still doesn’t change the fact that no matter what is your religious belief the person is no longer in there, the ‘body’ has become an empty vessel!

Door Facing Another Door Creates a Bad Chi of Arguments and Misunderstanding

Published Hulyo 25, 2012 by jptan2012

The other day we talked about what may cause disharmony amongst siblings. Today, allow me to talk about another Feng Shui blunder that causes arguments, however, unlike the earlier post this one is not ‘exclusive’ to siblings, but affects anybody whose door faces another door.

This may bedroom doors facing another door, or office doors, or your main doors, or gates. Everybody inside the house/office/room/etc. on both side will be affected by this Feng Shui blunder. What happens is that you’ll be trying to directly pull at the chi and sharing with the chi. When this happens, you’ll naturally feel animosity towards the other person on the other side of the door, the people on the other end will also feel the same way, and because of this you’ll end up creating misunderstanding with each other.

It’s easier to cure to this Feng Shui blunder if the flaw is inside an office or house, all you need is to put a bright light in-between the two doors thus creating more yang chi. However, if the blunder is between to main gates then the problem is harder to resolve. Both parties must agree to put a bright light beyond the main gate.

Myth Buster 10: Lucky Rabbit’s Foot

Published Mayo 13, 2012 by jptan2012

When I was a still a young boy, I remembered being given a rabbit’s foot by my father’s friend. It was supposedly to be a good luck charm. While this belief is not as famous here in the Philippines as it is abroad, I realized that they’re a lot of people who really believes in it.

Nowadays, it is generally believed that a rabbit’s foot serves as a good luck charm for the one who carries it, but the truth is it really started out as protection charm or amulet rather than a good luck charm. It was first used as a good luck charm of young men during the times when hunting is still one of the basic way of getting food on the table. However, it’s use as a protection charm turn into lucky charm because when the world started to become more ‘civilized’ and ‘safer’, its appeal as a protection charm started to lose its appeal. It is then when it because a lucky charm and not a protection charm.

But it is really not clear whether when this belief really started. The most prevailing belief is that it started during the pre-Celtic era when young boys, are trained to hunt. One of the first thing that they’ll hunt for are rabbits, and they will be given the foot of the very first rabbit that they hunted.

Nevertheless, the question is is there truth to the belief that a rabbit’s foot is a lucky or protection charm. If you analyze the history that I just shared, you’ll see that the original use of the rabbit’s foot is not as a charm or amulet, but it’s more of a symbol of a passage from being a boy to being a young amateur hunter, albeit still a boy.

If you look at it in a Feng Shui perspective, a rabbit’s foot creates bad chi, thus it is neither a protection nor lucky amulet. One will have to assume that the rabbit’s foot is actually from a dead rabbit, in Feng Shui, anything that’s dead creates a Yin energy thus it is bad for humans who should be predominantly Yang. If we are to assume that it’s from a living rabbit, it still creates bad chi, because you will have to cause pain to the rabbit to get it. Something that is totally anti-thesis of Feng Shui and Buddhist teaching.

Lu Dongbin: The Third Immortal Who Happens to be the De Facto Chief of the Eight Immortals

Published Abril 21, 2012 by jptan2012

One of the most famous immortal in the 8 Immortals is Lu Dongbin (also spelled as Lu Dongpin, Lu Tong Pin, Dongbin Lu), I believe to some extent he is even more famous than Chung Li-Chuan. In fact, there are more records about Lu Dongbin than Chung Li-Chuan, and some Taoist priest consider Lu Dongbin as the leader or chief of the Eight Immortals. However, if you study the story of the Eight Immortals there are records that states that Lu Dongbin is a student or disciple of Chung Li-Chuan, thus the more common belief is that Chung Li-Chuan is the chief of the 8 Immortals and that Lu Dongbin is the de facto leader of the group. In the official counting of the Eight Immortals he usually comes third, but the chronological line-up of their names is not in any way related to their capabilities and hierarchy.

In my post about the Eight Immortals, I mentioned that they are largely considered as legendary beings this is because it is unclear whether they truly lived in the past or not. However, that is not true about Lu Dongbin. Lu Dongbin is a confirmed historical figure.

Lu Dongbin’s real name is Lu Yan during the Tang Dynasty. Lu is his family name and Yan is his given name.  It is largely believed that when he was born, instead of a pungent smell of blood, the room was filled with a very sweet smelling fragrant aroma. Some records states that he has always been an intelligent student with so many academic achievements.

In his older age it is said that he learned the alchemy and Tao under the guidance of Chung Li-Chuan. Some Taoist scripturess states that Lu Dongbin became a very good exorcist of people who are possessed by bad spirits. He is also able to drive aways bad chi, bad luck cause by evil spirits.

It is because of his life as mortal that when he became an immortal he is largely associated with scholastic luck. More than being an immortal that bestows scholastic luck, he is also an immortal that we can call on when we need protection from unseen forces. His secondary power is his ability to heal illnesses.

His implements are the double edged sword that he uses to slay evil spirits and a flywhisk that he uses to cure illnesses.

Tips to Cure Bad Chi that Affects Family Relationship

Published Marso 3, 2012 by jptan2012

I decided to write this post because of a reader who recently consulted me about her relationship with her mom. They know they love each other but they also fight a lot. K, the reader, was one of the first readers of this blog who contacted me through email requesting that her BAZI be read. It took me a few weeks before I was able to deliver her BAZI analysis. One of her primary reason of wanting her chart to be read is because she just recently went through a major change in her life and also she became a little worried because she read that this might be a bad year for people born under the sign of the Dragon. K is a Dragon.

K’s BAZI chart showed that she might have some relationship problems with her mom. It’s nothing that both of them want or seek, but it’s simply because it was destined to be that way, to further aggravate this her mom was born under the year of the Dog, which totally contradicts the Dragon.

K confirmed the BAZI analysis as shown on her BAZI chart. If we’ve seen K’s BAZI when she was younger, the remedy could have been asking her mom to let K call her another term for mother, other than what she’s usually addressed by the other children. For example, if her children call the mom Mama, K could just call her mommy or mom.  If she’s called Mommy, K can just call her mom, mama, or even Inay. That’s one of the simplest cure for relationship problem that has something to with the BAZI or fate.

Also knowing about this earlier in their life could have prepared the mom to work harder with their relationship. This is one problem that really has to be addressed on as early as possible, it’s harder to ‘heal’ the wounds that has been repeatedly wounded several times through the years. However, it’s useless ‘crying over spilled milk’, Feng Shui is useless unless one is able to solve a ‘problem’.

Nevertheless, I have to admit that relationship problems specially one that is deeply rooted in the BAZI, which is destined as dictated by one’s birth date, is the ‘hardest’ to work on. But knowing that these arguments are caused by other than one’s personality is a first step in trying to tone down the bad chi brought about by fate. Secondly, one really has to be more patient with each other.

If you’re experiencing relationship problems with any of members of your family, regardless of whether it’s karmic or not, do the first two steps I just mentioned. Then, you can also do the following Feng Shui tips and/or Taoist and Buddhist rituals to help address the bad chi or energy that’s causing the disharmony.

SIX CRYSTAL BALLS IN THE LIVING ROOM. Placing six smooth crystal balls in the living room will help create harmony within the family. If possible, get a crystal ball that has some symbolic script on them, because this helps enhance the ‘power’ created by the good Feng Shui created by putting the crystal balls. If possible, use real crystal balls, but because this can get quite expensive, you can get two natural crystal balls and the rest can be made of glass. However, never ever get anything that’s made of plastic. Any color will do and they don’t have to be of the same size and color.

RECITE THE PRAJNAPARAMITA MANTRA. I’ll discuss more about the Prajnaparamita Mantra and its Sutra in one of my future posts but right now what’s important is to understand that this mantra is a powerful mantra that helps actualize harmony within the home or anywhere where this mantra is recited. If possible, recite this mantra in the living room or in the center of the house. If the affected parties are staying in the same bedroom, then reciting this in the bedroom is also good. For utmost effectiveness, recite one full mala (one full mala is 108 times) five times a day. You can recite all the five full mala at one time, but it’s best if it’s spread throughout the day. The PRAJNAPARAMITA MANTRA is – TADYATHA OM GATE GATE PARAGATE PARASAMGATE BODHI SOHA. (Note on Pronunciation: GATE is pronounced as GA – short A and TE as Tay – sounds like long A or the English word TAIL without the L).

Symbolic Script of the Prajnaparamita Mantra. The actual script reads GATE GATE PARAGATE PARASAMGATE BODHI SOHA. However, when reciting the mantra one needs to add TADYATHA OM, making the full mantra TADYATHA OM GATE GATE PARAGATE PARASAMGATE BODHI SOHA. One can also print several copies of the symbolic script of the Prajnaparamita Mantra and fold it and put in inside a red cloth. Then give one each to all affected members of the family.

SUN POWER TO CLEANSE NEGATIVE ENERGIES. Regularly cleanse your mattress, pillows, and blankets from negative energies. These are the things that we use in the evening, and we leave an energy imprint on them, they are also seldom exposed to direct natural Yang energy, thus it becomes Yin energy, this in turn may contribute to the negative energy that creates disharmony. Cleaning them with Sun Power is an effective way of infusing some Yang energy on them. You can do this every 2 weeks, bring out the mattress, clean blankets and pillows and expose them to direct sunlight. Preferably between 7 and 9 in the morning.

CLEAR CLUTTER. Clear all the clutter in the house. Clutters tend to create energy blockage, which in turn may also create disharmony among others.

Not an accurate depiction.

MOON AND PERFUMED WATER RITUAL. (1.) On an evening with a full moon, place a big bowl of water, make sure you use white colored bowl. While it should be full, make sure that it doesn’t spill. (2.) Leave the bowl of water under the moon from 7PM to 6AM the following day. (3.) Place 5 different flowers that has five different colors that represents the five elements. Red, pink, orange, purple flower for the fire element; white flower for the metal element; blue flower for the water element; green flower for the wood element; yellow flower for the earth element. The flowers will be put in the Moon energized water at 6AM the following day. (4.) Bring the water inside the house and if possible put it on your altar then say the PRAJNAPARAMITA MANTRA 108 times. If you don’t have an altar just bring it in the living room or at the center of the house. (5.) After saying the full mala of PRAJNAPARAMITA MANTRA, blow on the water. (6.) Then put a pinch of salt and a pinch of saffron the water. In the absence of water one can also use any other ordinary scented oil. Almond or Vanilla are also very good. Florida Water may be use also. (7.) Sprinkle the water in the living room, and in the bedrooms of the affected members of the family. (8.) Leave some of the water to be mixed in the bath water of the affected members of the family. About one tablespoon per person will do.
