The Tumultuous Energies Before the Official Entry of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog!

Published Pebrero 1, 2018 by jptan2012

In Feng Shui, the last month of the lunar year is one of the most confusing energy of the year, because this is the time when outgoing energies are sort of ‘fighting’ with the incoming energies of the following lunar year.

This year is quite unique though because some signs are experiencing a heightening of some negative energies. If you will remember, last year’s forecast indicates that people born under sign of the Horse and Sheep will have a very challenging year, one that is plague with possible violence and a series of bad luck. The coming 2018 Year of the Earth Dog should be better for them, however, while February 16 hasn’t come in to usher the official Year of the Earth Dog, it is advisable for people born under the year of the Horse and Sheep to be careful.

Actually, because the incoming year brings with it some challenging energies, the remaining energies of the year is also heightened.

In the past few weeks, I have encountered so many people complaining that some sort of bad thing happened to this and that person. Most of these stories have people ending up in the hospital and/or even death.

One of the story involves my own mother.

My mother was born in the year of the Sheep. Because I know that she is affected by the #7 Violent Star and side afflicted with the #5 Yellow Star this 2017 Lunar Year of the Rooster, I made sure that she will be protected with all the amulets that she needs. My siblings and I will also constantly remind her to take extra careful. A few months ago, she fell down, it is a good thing though that she was wearing her amulets and my nephew was also there to ‘save’ her and to keep her from fully falling. On the first week of January, she jokingly said that she has survived 2017!  To which I reminder her that the bad stars are still with her until Feb 15, 2018. However, last week, her friend from high school who happens to be a person born under the year of the Horse, and whose children are born again thus they forbade her to wear any amulets, had a stroke and she subsequently passed away. When she was still in the hospital, in fact, on her first day in the hospital, my mom wanted to visit her. Since I was out of the house, my sister called me to let me know of my mother’s plan to visit her friend. I told my sister not to allow my mom because (1) it is still the year of the Rooster and she is still afflicted with all the bad stars, and (2) that day was really a bad day in terms of the configuration of the stars including the daily Flying Stars, and (3) the hospital is considered a very yin place, meaning it has a lot of negative energies. Even with amulets, as all of you who is familiar with my thinking, I really wouldn’t want to tempt fate. I suggested to my sister that she and I should just accompany my mom to go to the hospital the following day where the stars are auspicious and also so that we can ensure that she has all her amulets.

Maybe it is because of her very close affinity to her friend who has been her friend since high school, or because of how the elderly are sometimes short tempered and impatient and don’t want to be told what to do by their children, my mom acted like a high school or college student and implored the driver and her caregiver to drive her to the hospital. She did this while my sister went to the restroom. In her rush, my mom forgot to wear her amulets, and her caregiver also forgot to let her wear them. Everything went fine, albeit my siblings and I were a little flustered with what my mom did, she was able to get home safely. However, when we all thought that she was safe and sound, she stood up from her chair, lost her balance and fell down. My mom is turning 75 this year, and she has mild osteoporosis, and so it was not surprising that she broke her femur! The only thing is that she didn’t break any of her hip or pelvic bone!!!

As of writing this we are still in the hospital. She has been her for 12 days now and while it is hopeful that she will be discharge in a few more days, it will still take two months of therapy for her to be able to walk properly again.

She tempted fate. I know what I told her that she should still try to be mindful that she still has those bad stars didn’t really sink in with her.

Another person I know who got affected by these challenging energies is my former officemate. Charles, is turning 40 this year, and he was born in the year of the Horse. I’m very fond of Charles because in a world of Public Relations where it is considered a cutthroat business, Charles was one of the few persons that is totally sincere and nice when we used to work together in the PR firm that employs us. This was several years ago, and through the years we remain friends even now that I have my own businesses and he now heads a department of another company. Charles is a born – again Christian, a Pentecostal at that, and so he doesn’t really believe in Feng Shui. Although there are times that he’ll ask me about my forecast.

Charles is afflicted with the #7 Violent Star and the #5 Yellow Star, two of the most negative stars in the Flying Stars formula. Furthermore, his office is also in the South side of his office. I did warn Charles about this and he said he’ll be careful, and true enough it has been a challenging Year of the Rooster for him. I last saw him late last year when we had our annual post-Christmas and pre-New Year dinner. He told me that he is just happy that 2017 is about to end so that he can welcome a better 2018, this was after he asked me what’s in store for him in 2018. Because I know that he takes Feng Shui lightly, I didn’t say that technically speaking Year of the Rooster is until Feb. 15, 2018.

I just received word 2 days ago that Charles died. Initial finding is heart attack but it was later confirmed through an autopsy that he died of acute pancreatic attack / acute pancreatis.

Charles death hit me really hard, part of me thinks that if I just warned him that things will not get better for him until Feb. 16 maybe he would have been more careful and he wouldn’t have died. Our friends and his sister assured me that what happened to Charles is like heart attract. No one can predict when it will happen and there are no warning signs.

Another story is that of famous TV and movie director, Direk Maryo J Delos Reyes. Thru a mutual friend he consulted me early last year. I had the feeling that he doesn’t take this thing seriously and just would like to know what would be the general forecast for him. Direk Maryo, as he is fondly called, was born in the year of the Dragon, however, his bedroom and his head when he sleeps is directed towards the South. As mentioned, the South in the 2017 Lunar Year of the Rooster is afflicted with the #5 Yellow Star or Wu Wang and side afflicted with the #7 Violent Star, not to mention that it also has some other negative stars from the 24 Mountain Stars formula. Told him about this, but I’m really not sure whether he actually followed any of my recommendations. I firmly believe that his passing away has something to do with the fact that his room and his head when sleeping is oriented to the South. I was also told by one of his talents that he passed away due to a heart attack when he was in the Southern part of the Philippines. This might have further weakened his already weak chi by being expose to the South.

We still have a few more weeks left before 2018 Lunar Year of the Earth Dog officially comes in, but it is good if you have them to wear your Vajrapani Ruel, or gold Kalachakra pendant, or any other powerful protective amulets that you have.

Vajrapani Ruel Stories (26): Raising Enough Money to Finish One’s House And An Unexpected Additional Business!

Published Nobyembre 25, 2015 by jptan2012

house-with-moneyI’m a little hesitant to write this story because it might appear that it criticizes a certain image of a major religious sector. However, I have since written about it and the response was generally positive with several affirmations from readers that they did experience some bad Feng Shui because of that particular image. You’ll soon see what I am talking about but here’s the story of PL and SL.

PL and SL a married couple who both works as a Overseas Filipino Worker in the Middle East. Throughout their married life their biggest challenge is being separated from their 5 children because they both have to work abroad. However, this was somewhat tempered by SL’s mother presence and she was able to raise PL’s and SL’s kids properly.

According PL and SL their kids are great kids, and they would never ask for anything expensive. In fact, unlike the children of their Filipino colleagues abroad, their kids never asked for mobile phones or any other gadgets. Their school grades are average, and their middle child is even an honor student. To some extent their family although they are miles away from their children are almost perfect.

Their eldest and second child are now also working and without prompting they also contributed to the expenses at home, and because of this it was easier for them to built their own house. Since they are both working abroad it was their eldest, their second child and SL’s mom, the maternal grandmother of the children, who took care of the building of the house. And so little by little they built their home. It took them almost three years to finish their house not because it was big but because they really have to save up and build a portion, then save up and build another portion, until October last year they finished their small but loving home! The only thing left to do is decorating it and putting the section of the house where they’ll put up a small store and small computer shop and the dirty kitchen.

Their kids and SL’s mom decided to hold off finishing the decorating because they want PL and SL to finish the decoration of the house. But their eldest thought it would not to put a picture of their parents in the biggest wall of the house, which is in the dining room. They initially wanted to do it in the living room, but there is no place for it there. But as agreed they will wait for their parents to come and wait for their decision.

November came and PL and SL came back to see their new home, and also to finish the small store, small computer shop and the dirty kitchen. They were really happy to see their new home almost finished. The kids told them of the blank wall in the dining room and having the picture of their parents there. However, SL has always been fascinated with the image of The Last Supper and so they decided to place The Last Supper on that wall. In less than a week’s time they had it there.

PL and SL plans to go back abroad for their last term of contract before they settle here in the Philippines by late January, unfortunately, SL was informed just between Christmas and New Year that contrary to what they initially agreed on she won’t be renewed by her employer. This came as a shock, and she was told that because her employer is having some business problems and they are terminating the contract of several overseas contract staff and since SL is in the Philippines, she’s among the first few contract workers to be terminated. Although Pl and SL got really worried, they took it as a sign that she has to stay home and it will just be PL to leave and work abroad, they made some financial calculations it’s going to be a little risky but they should just make the small store and the computer shop work and they will survive it.

But after New Year, they got another shock! PL will also not be able to go back to his employer because his brother who works with him, embezzled some money before he came back to the Philippines, which was just 3 days before Christmas. And it was only discovered after New Year! Furthermore, he has some money that he remitted through his brother to avoid being questioned why s he remitting or bringing a big amount of money and this seems to have been stolen from him by his brother. His brother also didn’t went home for Christmas, instead he went directly to province of his wife where his wife and children lives. They initially didn’t get worried because they were able to talk to him during Christmas, but when the news about his embezzling the money of the company broke out, they were unable to get in touch with him, not even his wife or any of his wife’s family.

They’re at a lost as to how this can happen to them and it seems that they got their bad luck because they SL was betrayed by her employer that she has faithfully served for several years and PL was betrayed by his brother. He was unable to go back by virtue that the one who embezzled money is his brother. For the Arabs it doesn’t make any difference, for them they’re one and the same.

All of a sudden their dream house although built already won’t be finished because they have to save the money for what seems to be an uncertain future. But still they pursued and instead of being sad tried to look for here in the Philippines. But they find it hard to get a good job primarily because of their age.

Their eldest who happens to be my reader took pity on them and contacted me. She said although her parents are trying to be strong. At that time I really haven’t met PL and SL and I still don’t know about the image of THE LAST SUPPER that in Feng Shui may cause betrayal.

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It's important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

Anyway, their daughter decided to get the Vajrapani Ruel and I told her that since it’s her parents who are having the problems really it’s better if she will give it to one of her parents. And so she gave it to his father who is more open in trying out these kinds of things, her mom, SL, is very religious and a devout Catholic and might not be open to trying out Feng Shui, especially amulets of Buddhist origin.

Soon after carrying it PL experienced his first miracle, he got a job whose pay is even more than what he gets in the Middle East, then after that some money was ‘mysteriously’ deposited in his account, which correspond to the amount that he remitted through his brother. Because of these developments they’re able to finish their home!

PL and SL through their daughter contacted me because they want to get another Vajrapani Ruel, while we’re talking she inquired as to what can cause the betrayal, to which I replied all the possible reasons that I can think of. I haven’t written about the image of THE LAST SUPPER then and although I was hesitant to mention it to them, in my experience a lot of people experienced some form of betrayal and sadness when they have the image. If you want to know more about it you can read the following posts:


PL and SL decided to simply donate the image of THE LAST SUPPER to a church, and replace it with the image of the HOLY FAMILY.

Meanwhile, SL did get another Vajrapani Ruel and although she has decided to simply manage their small store and computer shop, an unexpected opportunity ‘landed on her lap’ when two different people contacted her to help sell their processed meat and cooked meal respectively. This also proves to be a very good additional business and now they have added some tables outside their small store to serve food!

Their daughter, PL and SL all believes that it is because of the Vajrapani Ruel that they all this good luck!

Pablo, 2012’s Strongest Philippine Typhoon!

Published Disyembre 4, 2012 by jptan2012
Typhoon Pablo has an international name of Bopha.

Typhoon Pablo has an international name of Bopha.

It seems like yesterday when the Philippines was hit by Sendong, where a lot of people died, families were broken, and dreams shattered. That happened a month before Christmas. Now, the same people who were affected by Sendong will have to go through the ordeal of facing Pablo.

Pablo, according to the US experts is a Category 5 Typhoon, but the limitations of Philippine Typhoon Signal guidelines only categorized it up to Signal No. 3. Nevertheless, authorities I believe has given ample warning about the damage that Pablo can deliver.

Most of us won’t be able to physically do anything about it. However, I would like to urge everybody to pray for those who are affected or going to be severely affected by Pablo. It doesn’t matter whether we have the same belief just say a prayer to your God.

For Buddhists, or for those who believes in chanting a mantra, urge you to chant a mantra for those who will have to go through Typhoon Pablo’s wrath.

I suggest to say the Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion – OM MANI PADME HUM, and the Mantra of Medicine Buddha – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA. Chant it as many times as you can and dedicate it to the typhoon victims. If you’re busy 108 times or one full mala will do.
