We are at the height of El Niño and all of use here in the Philippines can actually feel the heat. In fact, this is one of the hottest seasons we ever had. Famine because of drought are already happening in the country side and it seems that it is bound to get even worst first before it’ll start to get better.
I’m sure most of you have experienced this tremendous heat and are suffering because of it. The good thing is we are able to take care of ourselves (most of us). Many of us can turn the air – conditioner on and drink lots of water.
This is the season where we can earn some good merits or good karma, although hopefully this should not be our main and primary reason. Because of the heat, a lot of the birds and stray dogs and cats are dying of thirst or heat stroke. It will help a lot if we can put out some water for them.
For the birds, you can put the water on your balcony or outside your bedroom window, or on a tree trunk if you are able to do this. Note that their food might be drying up also because of the heat, so while you’re at it you might want to bring out a little food also. Bird feeds, or fruits will do.

For the stray dogs and cats, please do put a big flat bowl of water outside your house. This way, a thirsty dog or cat might wander to your place and they will be able to drink some water. Again, while you’re at it you might want to put some food also.
In doing this, you can earn some merit, but more importantly one can help save a life!
The younger generation has now started to move to condominiums, and since the space is now smaller they seldom see dead space, unlike for those who still live in a big place like a stand-alone house.
A space is called dead space if it doesn’t have any yang energy or activities going in that space or area of the house. The truth is in my experience, I think I haven’t seen a big stand alone house without a dead space, at least, not that I can remember of.
A dead space is bad because it will surely have an effect on the people living in the house, it can be just one person or it call be all of you. It’s quite important to make sure that you don’t have a dead space in your house.
But what can you do if the house is really big for your family?
If the dead space is a room, I suggest try playing some music in that area of the house. If you can play some mantra then better, also make sure that natural light comes in every morning.
If the dead space is an area where you can take care of pets, then do take care of pets, like dogs, cats, or even rabbits. Just make sure that they remain happy pets. Do not get pets just for the sake of wanting to have good luck.
If it’s a terrace where in you cannot take care of pets but want to put life there, you can install a bird feeder and put some bird feeds so that birds will naturally go in that area and they will infuse the dead space of yang energy.
