Experiencing A Series of Bad Luck? Try These Natural Feng Shui Cures…

Published Enero 8, 2013 by jptan2012

One of the things that people frequently ask me is whether Feng Shui is all about wearing amulets, charms, and talismans. The clear answer to that is a big NO! In fact, before Feng Shui experts discovered the importance and the power of symbols and images in curing a bad Feng Shui, Feng Shui used to be all about naturally attracting Yang energy. It is not clear, when did Feng Shui experts realized the power of using symbol, however, one thing is clear, as we progressed and people become more urbanized and we veer away from the natural condition of our planet, it has become harder to use natural Feng Shui thus people discovered the power of symbols, amulets, talismans, and charms.

However, there are still different natural ways of doing Feng Shui. I’ve shared some of the natural ways of curing a series of bad luck. Today, allow me to share with you a few more natural way of curing bad luck.

If you are experiencing some bad luck, you can simply do one or all of the following to help cure and stop your bad luck.

You can do this by going out and having a clean fun with your friends. Go watch a feel good movie, if it’s a comedy then better. You can also just go to the amusement park and spend some time having fun there.

TempleGO TO A TEMPLE OR A CHURCH. Going to a temple or a church is one of the simplest ways of clearing away bad luck. Get yourself blessed by the different Deities, Buddhas, or Bodhisattvas, or Saints.

The Power of a Prayer Wheel: A Personal Testimony

Published Disyembre 2, 2012 by jptan2012

1prayerhweel2If you are a regular reader of this blog, you’d know by now that I’m a great believer of the PRAYER WHEEL. In fact, I’ve written it a number of times, one of which is entitled – THE POWER OF A PRAYER WHEEL – and another time I shared about its power in a post entitled – A PERSONAL TESTIMONY: TAPPING INTO BUDDHISM, TAOISM, AND FENG SHUI FOR A POSITIVE OUTCOME OF A DELICATE SITUATION.

Today, I would like to once again tell you about a recent miraculous experience that I had about the powers of the Prayer Wheel.

I recently went to Cebu where we’re to have a big event. However, two days before the event we were told by the organizers that we haven’t been granted a permit by the mayor of Cebu City and Mandaue City. We need their permit because we are suppose to bike around both cities.

This created a lot of angry heads because all of us has been unintentionally misled that there’d be no problem in getting the permit. With two days before the event, and it being a Friday afternoon, our event is on a Sunday, everybody was hopeless and not very optimistic that we’ll still be able to get the permit.

Not pushing through with the event is going to be a big disgrace to all the companies involve because we’ve flown in some media from Manila to cover the event, invited all the media in Cebu also to cover the event, and most of all, the foreign principals of the companies involve flown in from their respective countries just to be at the event.

After some bickering and a number of threat to go to court, some of us has convinced the group to let cooler heads prevail and to discuss what we can do. The group agreed that there’s nothing else we can do except to go to the respective LGUs involve and ask for the permit. But then again we came to that decision because there’s really nothing else that we can do, but we also know that we’ve got nothing to lose in trying again. Nobody thought of verbalizing that it’s already a Friday afternoon (2pm).

It was decided that we’d separate ourselves into 2 groups. I together with one of my client will go to the office of the mayor of Cebu City, while my assistant and another group of client will go to the office of the mayor of Mandaue City.

I didn’t put up much hope that we’ll accomplish anything but as mentioned we’ve got nothing to lose. I’m just happy that I’m wearing my WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, which has the Victory Banner.

As mentioned in my previous posts, the VICTORY BANNER or BANNER OF VICTORY is a very good Feng Shui tool of Buddhist origin to help ensure that we will be successful in our endeavors.

However, I also note, that the VICTORY BANNER is not really the charm for getting luck in last minute situations like this. Nevertheless, I’m also fortunate enough to be wearing my PRAYER WHEEL pendant! Prayer Wheel Pendant

So while we were on our way to the office of the mayor of Cebu City, I kept on spinning my PRAYER WHEEL pendant, at the same alternately chanting the mantra(if you want to know more about mantras, do read my post entitled – Mantra: The Instrument to Tap the Power of Symbolic Sound, Script, and Thought) OM MANI PADME HUM and mentally stating the intent, which is to be able to get a permit. My clients were asking me what am I doing, whether I’m trying to invoke some miracle, and all I said is that yes I’m trying to invoke some miracle. They laugh a little but also said that they hope it works.

When we got to Cebu City Hall, we saw the mayor coming out of building. We felt compelled to approach him, thankfully he has very few security and they’re not very tight, and I was able to talk to introduce myself, tell him about our dilemma and that we desperately need a permit. He didn’t really ask for a lot of details but instructed a guy to call up the City Administrator to inform him that he the mayor has given the permit, all he they need to do is to prepare and expedite the paper works!!!

One down! My clients all said that the ‘magic’ seems to be working. We also decided that they will stay and wait for the permit and that I should join the other group who at that time was told that the mayor that they want to see is currently in a meeting and won’t be able to see them until early evening. Before I left, my clients jokingly told me to keep on spinning the pendant and create another magic.

On my way to Mandaue City, I decided to continuously spin my prayer wheel pendant and again I continuously chant the mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, which is OM MANI PADME HUM, and alternately mentally stating the intent.

When I got to Mandaue City Hall, I saw the other group still waiting to be escorted inside. At that time, there’s nothing else we can do but except to wait, and from time to time plead that we be allowed to see the mayor. After about 15 minutes after I got there, an elderly woman came out to ask us why do we need to see the mayor or the city administrator. My assistant explained the situation, and why do we need to have the event. She went inside again, telling us to wait while she checks out what she can do. Nobody went to see us again for the next 30 minutes and we were all losing hope, although, I still kept on spinning my prayer wheel. 45 minutes after the lady left us she came out with a piece of paper, and informed us that we have the permit!!!!

Needless to say everybody was happy! The event was very successful, and those who said hurtful things at the heat of the moment started apologizing. Those who were at the receiving end of the hurtful words accepted the apologies and there were two people who requested that I get them a prayer wheel and several of them asked me about the prayer wheel.

My prayer wheel pendant is from Nepal and has been with me for several years now. I’ve been thinking of replacing it for quite some time now because it is no longer in the best condition and the top has started to dislodge. Although, I must say that it is still very powerful and effective. However, on that same trip I went to Shangri-La Mactan, and while I was monkey-ing around with some friends at the beach side I lost balance got dipped in the water while still wearing my prayer wheel pendant. I guess that’s a clear sign that I should get a new prayer wheel…and I will because the Prayer Wheel is one of the most powerful Buddhist tools that can be use as a Feng Shui amulet, available to us!!!

A Taoist Ritual Against Hostility

Published Marso 4, 2012 by jptan2012

Today, I’m again sharing with you another email from a reader that I received last Jan. 18, 2012. I’ve emailed my response to his question, however, I would like to share it now also for the benefit of those who may going through the same thing and/or for those who simply want to know, specially because the same reader just called last night to inform me that my suggestion seemed to have worked.

MW, my reader’s initial, sent me a private email to inquire about a Feng Shui cure for a hostile neighbor. According to MW, their neighbor in their subdivision is quite hostile towards them. The matriarch of the neighbor would often complain about their ‘smelly’ food, the noisy children of MW and his wife, the noisy dog, the neighbor also complains about how she can smell the fumes from their car in the morning when they’re about to leave, and in the evening when they get home. As if that’s not enough, the neighbor also complained about the pond in MW’s garden, which she said she could see from her bedroom window, and she also said that she’s afraid that the pond may be a breeding ground for dengue causing mosquito and she even ‘suggested’ that it be removed. She even went as far as approaching the homeowner’s association president to request that MW be pressured to get rid of the pond!

MW and his family have lived in the said subdivision for more than 20 years already. That’s where he grew up and inherited the house from his parents when they migrated to the US. Hostile Neighbor is relatively new and has been there only for 3 years. Hostile Neighbor first moved in with her family-another couple with some children, and for reasons unknown to MW, she seems to live in the house on her own now. She just has some maids with her.

MW and I exchanged numbers so we can talk about his problem properly. On the phone, MW explained that they’ve tried everything already. They went to talk to her, invited her to their home, send food to Hostile Neighbor, offer to run errands for her. They did these things because his wife said that they should be more understanding given that Hostile Neighbor is already old and that she may be feeling lonely. However, all of their efforts were turned down, except the running of some of her errands.

MW decided to contact me because the matter has become so bad already and that not a week goes by that Hostile Neighbor will not shout something bad against them. It may be about the food, the car, the dogs, the pond, or even about their house help, but every week Hostile Neighbor will shout at them through their windows, and it seems to be getting worst each week. There are times that Hostile Neighbor is not contented with shouting, she would even go to MW’s house and ring the bell like it’s an emergency or like she’s been there forever and they’ve just been ignoring her!

MW said they believe in Feng Shui and has consulted a couple Feng Shui consultants who suggested that they make some renovations and/or buy some Feng Shui cures to deflect the poison arrow that’s causing the hostility from the neighbor. MW followed their advice but nothing happened.

When MW presented me with this matter, I just have to believe that the Feng Shui experts that he consulted are correct in saying that the hostilities are not caused by the bad Feng Shui of MW’s house. MW also clarified that they really haven’t had any major renovations and everything seems to be fine before the neighbor moved in. They’re certainly in good terms with their old neighbor, the previous owner of Hostile Neighbor’s house.

It’s possible that the hostility that they’re experiencing is due to either of the following reasons: Bad Feng Shui of the neighbor’s house that causes so much anger to the owners that is dumped on them because as they said aside from the house helps nobody else is with Hostile Neighbor, or it is deeply rooted in the BAZI of Hostile Neighbor.

A neighbor’s Feng Shui will have some effect on us, just like our Feng Shui will have some effect on them. However, it’s pretty obvious that we can’t do much about our neighbor’s Feng Shui. So what do we do with problems like MW’s?

Since MW is also Chinese and a Taoist – Buddhist at that, I suggested for him to do a Taoist ritual that may help protect him and his family against the hostility brought about their neighbor. I once suggested the same ritual with an aunt who is experiencing the same problem with her neighbor.

Like I said, just last night, MW called again to inform me that the ritual seemed to have worked. It’s been about 3 weeks since the hostilities have stopped. Whether it has stopped forever or not has yet to be seen, but do allow me to share the ritual here.

First you’ll need to get 7 pieces of lime. In China, they usually use Mandarin Lime or Mandarin Orange, but any lime will do. In the Philippines, it can be our local lime, which is Calamansi or you can also use Dalandan.

Fill a big white bowl with tap water.

If you have an altar, call on the saints or deities or Buddhas on your altar. Do this by lighting 3 incense sticks and call on their help to help subdue the hostilities coming from your neighbor. If you know the full name of the neighbor, please mention his/her name. Place the incense on the incense urn or incense burner.

Get the white bowl of water and let it pass through the smoke by rotating it 3 times above the incense urn or burner. Rotation should be done in a clockwise manner.

Get the lime and let it be smoked by the incense as well. You do this by letting it pass through the incense smoke 4 times also. Just like white bowl of water.

Cut 2 pieces of the lime and squeezed it’s juice into the water.

Place the rest of the lime and the white bowl of water on the wall separating your house and that of the neighbor’s house.

Leave it there overnight. The following day, anytime after sunrise but before 9 in the morning, simply splash the water with limejuice on your side of the wall. If you live parts of Europe where sunrise doesn’t happen until 9 in the morning, do it between 6 and 9 in the morning.

Take the rest of the lime and throw it on the trashcan. If possible, throw it on a river, if you live near one.

Do the ritual for 7 consecutive days.
