Count Your Blessing

Published Mayo 3, 2013 by jptan2012

Yesterday, I wrote about my Feng Shui blunders. I was surprised with the overwhelming emails that I received expressing their support for me.

A Senator’s wife who happens to be a regular reader and also got the pendant from me called to help me check about the NBI/Police Major that is supposedly assigned to be the aide of Senator Drilon. As it turned out, and also as expected, there is no such person.

Another reader who happens to be a wife of somebody from NBI will also check if there’s such a person in the NBI. As I write this I’m still awaiting for her feedback.

A lot of my readers whom I’ve personally met also sms’d me (some called) to offer their support, help, and/or prayers. I really appreciate this a lot! I honestly didn’t expect the overwhelming response.

I really appreciate all the messages, call, and help but there is one particular reader who emailed me that really made me realize something. His message was simple but really straight from the heart. He also thought me a valuable lesson. Allow me to share his email with you; I’ll just call him by his initials Atty. B.

Atty. B wrote:

Hi JP!

I just read about your incident with CR, and I’m quite concerned about it.

It’s really unfortunate when people become unruly, especially when they’re (supposedly) from government. It gives public service a bad image, or gives it a worse image than it already is.

Bottomline: you may have had a few Feng Shui “blunders”, but I’m certain you have more Feng Shui “wonders” generated, because of the countless people you have helped. You exemplified so much generosity through your time and effort in sharing your Feng Shui knowledge to the world.

Being a person in government myself, I abhor the name-dropping and arrogant attitude of CR. More so, as the he claims to be in the police force.

Pls inform me if CR keeps still keeps on bugging you. Modesty aside too, maybe I can (do) something to help.

Warm regards!

blessingBefore Atty. B’s email I was already seriously considering ‘closing’ this blog. I knew that when I started this blog I’m opening myself to all sorts of people. And this incident with CR stressed that belief and made me think to just stop blogging, however, that thought didn’t last long because of all the wonderful response from readers but most of all this email from Atty B. This is because Atty. B indirectly pointed out something to me and that is again I’m focusing on the negative. Why should I be dissuaded with one stressful incident while there were so much more good things happening because of this blog? And by good things I don’t refer to the supposedly good things that this blog site brings to its readers, but I’m counting my own personal blessings. As of last count, since I’ve started this blog I’ve gained several more friends. More than my 10 fingers can count. Also, all I have to do is write about a stressful incident and several of my readers will sms me, call me, send me prayers, all these only means one thing, I get so much positive energy.

This reminds me of a discussion I had with a pediatric cardiologist who at that time just lost a patient on the operating table. He was really sad for what happened but he didn’t seem depress. I ask him how does he feel that he just lost a patient. He said that he really feels sorry for the boy’s parents, and that he feels sad but – I WILL COUNT THE LIVING, I WILL COUNT THE ONES WHO GET WELL, BUT I WILL NOT COUNT THE DEAD. I WILL REMEMBER THEM AND LEARN FROM THEM BUT I WILL COUNT ONLY THE LIVING.

What happened with me is really nothing compared to what the doctor has to go through everyday of his life. But I think that it is a very important lesson that each one of us has to learn. COUNT THE LIVING, LEARN FROM THOSE WHO DIED, BUT COUNT ONLY THE LIVING. We need to ALWAYS LOOKS AT THE POSITIVE LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES BUT ALWAYS COUNT OUR BLESSINGS.

Many people say that they were blessed and that their lives improved because of this blog. I should remember that. But more importantly, I should remember that I should count the blessings that I get from this blog. People who I know will always send me positive energies when I need them.

A Leisure Tour that Caused Several Years of Bad Luck

Published Marso 25, 2012 by jptan2012

In one of my previous posts at the start of the summer season here in the Philippines, I wrote about the different SIGNS OR OMENS OF A BAD TRAVEL LUCK and I also shared some FENG SHUI TIPS FOR A SAFE TRAVEL.

However, when we are on a vacation or on a leisure trip abroad it’s very easy for us to get excited and lose our Feng Shui consciousness. The different wonderful site and/or historical or cultural places sometimes cause us to do some Feng Shui blunders.

Several years back, I went on a trip to mainland China with a couple of friends, who happens to be married to each other. We mainly stayed in Beijing, and were easily lost in the wonderful cultural sites the place has to offer us. Part of our itinerary is a trip to the Great Wall of China and the famous Ming Tombs.

At the Ming Tombs we went down and entered some of the actual tombs and were mesmerize with the rich historical story behind the tombs, not to mention the beauty of the site.

Everything in that trip went really well, and we soon came back home and went back to our normal routine. However, the normal routine proved to be abnormal in the sense, we started having different challenges. My problem is about my work and career. I lost some money because somebody stole it from me. I’ve shared about this in one of my first posts.

My friends, who are married to each other, had bigger misfortune. A few months after we arrived, my guy friend lost his job, his wife, my girl friend, got pregnant which should be a joyful event but she had a miscarriage on her 3rd month of pregnancy. But more than that they also both went through several years of bad luck even if their Bazi, which was analyzed by a Feng Shui expert, indicated that both of them are going through a 5 year cycle of good luck.

It is only when I studied Feng Shui that I realized that the trip to the Ming Tombs could have caused the misfortune that befell us.

Another proof that visiting a Yin dominant place can be bad for your luck happened to a former officemate. A and her whole family went to Egypt. As expected they went to visit some pyramid where the whole family went inside the pyramid and different chambers, which as everyone knows are the tombs.

Maybe the effect with them is much more magnified because the whole family went inside and was affected by the Yin energy of the pyramid. Right after that trip, A’s mom had cancer, the father’s business started going bad and A herself started doing poorly in her work. Furthermore, A’s older brother started using drugs also.

I was no longer working with A when I found out about this, but she decided to ‘consult’ me because she knows of my Feng Shui background. She shared with me that out of desperation with all the bad luck that was happening to their family they consulted a psychic. This psychic told them that the whole family attracted a bad luck because they trespassed into a ‘spirit’ world. According to A the psychic didn’t know that they went to Egypt and entered the pyramid. A was not actually sure whether the psychic was referring to the pyramid because it happened more than a couple of years ago.

When she shared with me the story, I knew right away that the psychic was right and that A was also right in thinking that it was caused by their trip to Egypt.

If you’ve read my previous posts, you’d know that living spaces like malls, houses, and offices are Yang dominant places. On the other hand, cemeteries or even morgues are Yin dominant places. We must treat Yin dominant places with ‘respect’ and should not simply go there out of fun. There must be a purpose before we are really ‘allowed’ to go to a Yin dominant place and even then we should take a lot of precaution because going into a Yin dominant place may create some bad luck to the person who went inside the Yin dominant place. The effect may not be immediate, and sometimes if you wear some Feng Shui/Buddhist/Taoist amulets you won’t feel the effect at all, but it’s always better not to tempt fate.
