Several months ago somebody called me who is quite frantic, because her prayer bead or mantra bead or mala broke while she was using it. She was really scared that this is an omen of extreme bad luck. In the same manner, I was reminded of another call that happened a few years back, a friend called me because his citrine with nine – eyed DZI bracelet broke just when he was about to take it off. He became worried also that this is also an omen of financial bad luck.
But you see the lady who called me about the broken mala has been using her mala for more than 10 years already. And the guy has had his citrine beads with nine – eyed DZI bracelet for almost 2 years, and he takes it off and wears it everyday. So you see, common sense dictates that there is no omen. It is really just bound to happen because of wear and tear.
Nevertheless, I cannot blame them from panicking, because a lot of Feng Shui writers will attribute such occurrence as an omen. And in some way, they may be correct, but this is where common sense should come in.
If you have been using your mala for more than 10 years it is bound to break, maybe earlier if the quality of the string used is not so good. Beaded bracelet needs to be replaced every year because the garterized thread or nylon thread used in those bead bracelets if stretched everyday will only last about a year, sometimes even shorter if you live in a hot weather and if the quality is bad. So you see, they are bound to break, and not every breakage is a sign of bad omen.
When should you worry, if the incident of the breakage is somewhat can’t be explained. Like a 2 – week old mala breaking off, or a bracelet breaking off without an apparent reason, that’s when it should be considered as a bad omen. What should you do if this happened? Consult a Feng Shui or if one is not available, take a sea salt or rock salt bath to help take away the negative energy.

I got an email inquiring as to what she can do because she is currently experiencing hostilities from the manager of her department. She shares that she really enjoys working for the said company, but her new boss which was pulled out from another department is being hostile towards her.
Due to the ‘sensitivity’ of the matter I’m not sharing her name here. However, allow me to share with you my response to her which I sent through email.
It will be difficult to directly address this concern given that there are several factors that may cause the ‘hostilities’. One it can be because of your animal zodiac, another reason may be due to Feng Shui reasons that may be causing the hostilities specially if tables were rearranged when your new boss replaced your former boss. I the ‘cure’ can be more specific if I have more information about your situation.
Nevertheless, you can take some of the most basic Feng Shui cure for office hostilities. First, you can wear the Flying Bird DZI bead as bracelet, strung it with a clear quartz beads.
Flying Bird DZI Bead, also sometimes called Mythical Bird DZI or Harmony Bird DZI
Secondly, you can also wear a Maitreya Buddha or Happy Fat Buddha also known as the Laughing Buddha pendant. Wearing a Prayer Wheel pendant will also help in creating harmony.
However, you should also try to look deeper whether you might be doing anything that may be causing the said hostility. Analyze whether you’re attachment with your former boss might making you subconsciously not like your new boss and she might be getting this signal from you. Since she is your superior she might be manifesting this openly.
