Perfume: A Readily Available Temporary Feng Shui Cure!

Published Nobyembre 7, 2015 by jptan2012

A little more than 3 years ago I posted an article on this blog called – CLEARING OUT NEGATIVE ENERGIES CAUSED BY VIOLENCE. In that article I talked about a cure that entails making perfumed water with the use of Saffron or Cinnamon or both.

Today, I would like to share another simple yet quite effective way to make sure our Feng Shui luck is reenergized with the use of perfume.

Perfume is a natural way of enhancing your chi or if you’re having a bad Feng Shui day. All you have to do is to spray on some perfume and you will have naturally, albeit temporary, cured your Feng Shui for the day.

I first learned about the ‘Perfume Cure’ when I was still young man and still under the guidance of my Feng Shui teacher. I was in Hong Kong at that time and my Feng Shui teacher and I are about to leave his office to do a Feng Shui home audit when somebody called him on the landline (mobile phones are not yet in vogue then). My Feng Shui teacher who is in a hurry listened for awhile to the woes of the person, and he somewhat told him that we were in a rush and that for now all the person have to do is spray some perfume. Well, I personally haven’t tried this but have recommended this cure to some friends before and they said it worked. But remember this is a temporary and only a cure for a day.Perfume-Spray-1024x683

According to my Feng Shui teacher, preferably natural perfume oil extracted from plants or flowers is the best one to use. However, these days it is quite impractical so commercially available perfumes are a very good alternative. Just try to make sure that the oil versus alcohol ratio is still high in favor of the oil. Meaning, the more natural perfume oil the better. The sad news is that the more perfume oil there is the more expensive the perfume is. I personally, prefer the following brands Clinique Happy, Banana Republic, Hermes, Eternity, only because they have more fruity scent, which is also very good for Feng Shui use.

You can also make your own perfumed water by boiling some water with fragrant herbs or flowers. For this I personally prefer cinnamon or saffron. But saffron is quite expensive.

Just be careful, because some Buddhist temples, in particular Zen Buddhist temples, frown upon people who wear excessive perfume inside the temple because it is deemed disrespectful because perfumes are more often used as an offering for the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas.

How to Help the Victims of Typhoon Glenda?

Published Hulyo 17, 2014 by jptan2012

The Philippines is once against besieged by a strong typhoon.

Glenda is not as bad a Yolanda, but just the same, a lot of people were affected by the typhoon. After the typhoon, it is now time for us once again to lend a little help to the people who were greatly affected by Glenda. However, there’s no need for all of us to donate money, food, or clothes. If you don’t have an extra amount of money to spare, please remember that offering prayers will work as well.

For Buddhists, chant the mantra of Bodhisattva of Compassion, Kuan Yin – OM MANI PADME HUM with the mantra of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva – OM PRA MANI DANI SOHA or OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM or NAMO KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA or NAMA TI TSANG WANG PUSA (NAMO DI ZHANG WANG PUSA), with the mantra of the Medicine Buddha – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE  (BHEKANDZYE) RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA. One mala (108x) each or as many as you can, then dedicate it to the victims of Typhoon Glenda with international name Rammasun.

Clearing Out Negative Energies Caused By Violence

Published Marso 13, 2012 by jptan2012

If you’ve experienced being robbed, you’d know how bad the feeling is. A friend who was robbed inside their gasoline station felt that she was physically violated. In fact, it took her awhile to get over the trauma. For a while, she was even unable to go out of her house or even look outside of their window.

If you happen to experience a really bad case of robbery or any kind of violence, I suggest that you immediately clear out the negative energy caused by the violent act. There are different ways of doing it. They can be a stand-alone ritual or you can do all three.

First, the Feng Shui Way…. Perfume Water with Salt…

Always make sure that you use rock or sea salt and never iodized or table salt.

Get a big bowl of water, put about a teaspoon of salt and a pinch of saffron or cinnamon into the water. Use the Perfume Water with Salt solution to clear the negative energies brought about by the robbery by using the solution to clean the doorways and windows of your home. Make sure that you have a little solution which you can put by your door, leave it there for three days. You also need to infuse a lot of Yang energy, do this by turning the lights on for 3 days.

Second, the Taoist Way… Kwan Kong, Incense, Flower, and Candle

The Taoist way of clearing out the negative energy brought about by any form of violence would require you to have an image of Kuan Kong, also known as Guan Gong, Kwan Kong.

In front of the image of Kuan Kong, light 2 pieces of red candle, offer some flowers (make sure that the flower doesn’t have thorns, so roses are not allowed), and light 9 pieces of incense sticks.

Call on Kuan Kong to help clear out the negative energies brought about by the violent incident. Leave 3 of the incense sticks in front of the image of Kuan Kong, put the other 3 by your door and go around the house with the other 3 lighted incense sticks. While going around the house or office continuously call on Kuan Kong to clean the place from negative energies brought about by the violent incident.

Third, the Buddhist Way… The Power of Mantra, Incense, and Salt

If you have a Buddhist altar, light some incense in front of your Buddhist images. Put bowl of salt on the altar. Say one mala each of the Medicine Buddha Mantra, Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin Mantra, Kalachakra Mantra, Wish Fulfilling Mantra and Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra. Blow on the salt after each mantra.

Go around the house or office and throw some salt around each of the room. Start at where the violence happens.

While going around the house continuously recite the Protection, Environment Purifying and Immediate Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra – OM AH HUM.

Make sure to leave the lights open and leave an incense in each of the room.

The Mantra of the Medicine Buddha is TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

The Mantra of Kuan Yin or Avalokitesvara is OM MANI PADME HUM

The Mantra of Kalachakra is OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

The Wish Fulfilling Mantra is OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT

The Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra is OM HANU PHASHA BHARA HE YE SOHA

You can also do all three rituals. One day for each ritual and start with either the Taoist or Buddhist ritual or make sure the Feng Shui is done on the third day.

Personally, I prefer doing all three rituals.
