Look What’s Under Your Bed!

Published Mayo 30, 2017 by jptan2012

Early last year a friend invited me to become the godfather of their youngest child. The reception was held at the clubhouse of the subdivision where one of their friends lives.

During the post baptism reception, the conversation turned into Feng Shui, because my now ‘compare’ and ‘comadre’ shared with them that I’m a Feng Shui blogger. It was then that their friend who lives in the said subdivision told me about his concern with his youngest brother who lives with them. The brother graduated from college a couple of years ago, but he seemed unable to hold on to a job for long. Everything will start out fine but he will soon have some trouble with work. He also confided that he has tried to consult professional Feng Shui consultants and they said that there is nothing wrong with the Bazi chart or Paht Chee chart of his brother, and that his house is Feng Shui compliant.

Since we are already in the subdivision, I agreed to see his house and do a Feng Shui audit. Aside from some minor Feng Shui blunders, everything seems to be fine. I decided to check the brother’s bazi but even that doesn’t show any reason as to why he is unable to stay in a job for long and why would he always encounter problems. At this point my friend’s friend also confided in me that his brother always encounter some financial problems.

I decided to check the youngest brother’s room again. And I really can’t see anything wrong. But it was at this point that I saw a little paper protruding from under the bed of the youngest brother. I pointed it out to my friend’s friend and he said that their helper complains that his brother is a little messy in the room and that they are only able to maintain cleanliness in his room because the helper always makes sure to clean it. My instinct told me to ask them to push the bed. They did. And under the bed, well, I really don’t know how to put it properly, but it was obvious that they never move the bed and there was a whole new world of under it. Voila! I know already the problem. We should always make sure that underneath of our bed are clean. If it’s full of dirt, it seems like we lie on top of dirt and thus bad things happen to our life.

That was last year, when I saw them again a few weeks ago, the first thing they told me that his brother has stayed for more than a year already in his latest job. This is the first job that he has that he stayed for more than 4 months! And the brother has also started to invest in his own car. Much improvement, and they attribute it to the fact that they now make sure that it is always clean underneath their bed!

Why Some of the More Conservative Feng Shui Consultants Don’t Recommend Wind Chimes!

Published Disyembre 6, 2016 by jptan2012

WindChimes.jpg

Wind chimes are one of the most common and famous Feng Shui cure. But as a Feng Shui writer trained under some of the elder Feng Shui teachers, I don’t believe in the use of wind chimes so much and this sentiment is shared by some of the more conservative Feng Shui consultants.

The truth is wind chimes are one of the oldest Feng Shui cure used by the ancient Feng Shui masters. This is indeed a very powerful Feng Shui cure or enhancer if used and properly placed. However, this is also a cure used in the olden days because of the lack of skilled craft man who can fashion other type of cures. Or amulets are not that easy to transport of the lack of motorized transport. And so they resorted to use wind chimes.

But why I don’t normally use wind chimes?

That is because of melodious sound of the wind chimes also attracts spirits, and these spirits are not necessarily good ones. Remember, even the negative spirits are attracted by positive energies. And while the melodious sound of a wind chime is positive, it is not strong enough to repel the negative energies.

So should we or shouldn’t we use wind chimes?

If you trust the Feng Shui who recommend it and is absolutely sure that they know the proper way of putting it then you can use it. Also if you are sure that you have a strong amulet that can repel negative spirits then it is ok to use a wind chime.

But as for me, there are alternatives to a wind chime so I avoid using one. I rather not risk creating more harm.

Why Do Feng Shui Consultants Push For Some Cures or Charms? : Would A Doctor Prescribed a Medicine that Won’t Work?

Published Nobyembre 26, 2016 by jptan2012

The other day I received this email. For the privacy of the sender, I will not share the person’s name and neither will I put an initial.

The sender of the said email who is a Christian, as he/she claims in the email, but seems to follow several Feng Shui consultants and writers wants to know why do Feng Shui consultants, or in my case as a Feng Shui write sort of promotes some items. This person said that he thinks that Lillian Too promotes her medallions, annual cures too much, and that another Feng Shui consultant promotes some type of cloth and faux jewelries, while I ‘promote’ the Vajrapani Ruel a lot.

Doing Feng Shui is very much like acting as doctors of the Earth Luck aspect of a person. Remember, there is Heaven’s Luck, which is basically your karma (where you’re born, condition of your birth, etc.) and also help from Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Gods, or Jesus Christ and the Saints. Then there is Man’s Luck, which has something to do with what you do and how you work. Then there is also Earth’s Luck or Feng Shui. Practicing Feng Shui is very much acting like a doctor, you cure / treat the bad things or prevent the bad things from happening first before you start boosting the good things.

When you go to a doctor, that’s what they’ll do. Treat or cure your illness first before they focus on preventing other diseases to come up. But by curing or preventing, a doctor will naturally prescribe a treatment or medicine that they believe will work. They will not prescribe a medicine or treatment that doesn’t work. Otherwise, what’s the point of the treatment or medicine? Furthermore, different doctors might prescribe different treatment or medicines basically depending on what is within reach. A doctor in a remote town might believe in angioplasty but will not recommend it only because it is not available.

I understand that sometimes there are commercialized Feng Shui consultants, who are into this as business might push for an items that they sell. I will not deny that that happens. But generally speaking most will only prescribed something that they believe will work.

So Feng Shui consultants, or a Feng Shui writer like me will naturally recommend something that we believe in. In my case, I often times recommend readers items that are available online or available from other Feng Shui sites. But I only recommend something that I have experienced and believe will truly work. I also believe in a permanent thing rather than something you change annually, thus my recommendations might seem repetitive. Because they work and it’s perpetual!

Feng Shui Experts Are Not Pessimists!

Published Nobyembre 23, 2016 by jptan2012

One of the most common feed back that I get about Feng Shui experts, or Feng Shui consultants, is that they seem to be quite negative or pessimists. I am happy that I have not been called as such, at least not to my face, but a lot of my readers or those who come to me to ask for help observed that most commercial Feng Shui experts or consultants are very negative. Some people think that this is tactic of a Feng Shui consultant for him or her to sell his or her Feng Shui items. Trust me, this kind of accusation is not limited to a single Feng Shui consultant but it seems even the non – commercialized one also get this kind of feed back from time to time.

The answer to this question is quite simple. Those who are familiar with Feng Shui will naturally have a jump off point of what is negative, simply because in Feng Shui it is important to protect first before enhance, it is better to cure the negative and the bad before one boost or improve the positive and the good. That’s the only explanation why a lot of Feng Shui consultants, both commercialized and non – commercialized. It is part of a training of a Feng Shui consultant or expert to look for the problems first before talking about the good things. In fact, regular readers of this blog will know that right from the start and in my annual forecast, I always say that it is imperative that one concentrates on protecting oneself before enhancing the good stars!

Chant – A – Mantra (7) & Recite – A – Sutra (8): Additional Protection from the Double Illness Star and Double Wu Wang in the Northeast!

Published Nobyembre 4, 2016 by jptan2012

Any Feng Shui enthusiasts and Feng Shui students would have known by now that the month of November (starting on November 7, 2016 – December 6, 2016) a lot of us will have to be very careful and be ready for double negative energies brought about by the combination of the Annual Flying Stars and Monthly Flying Stars.

Note: To understand this post better you can read the first two posts about it. 1. Double Wu Wang Whammy for People Born in the Year of the Ox and Tiger this November. / 2. Is the Double Wu Wang in the Northeast this November Fatal?

First, the most dreadful star (#5 Flying Star / Wu Wang / Five Yellow Star / 5 – Yellow Star) is doubled in the Northeast this month, which means people born under the year of the Ox and Tiger, Middle Sons (regardless of age, regardless whether they are married or single and whether they still live with their parents or not), and people staying in the Northeast (bedroom, office or even if your house is in the Northeast of the village or subdivision) and people whose house or office door faces the Northeast are all affected by the Double Wu Wang. This is the most dreadful star in the Flying Star formula, and all Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui consultants caution us about this, and having it doubles this year in the Northeast brings tremendous stress to those who have to deal with it. Those who have to deal with it are the people I mentioned above.

But at the same time, the #2 Flying Star, which is known as the Illness Star, a star that causes not only grave illness but also serious accidents that may lead to long term illness or death is also doubled this month. We are all susceptible to this, but people who are affected by the Wu Wang, as mentioned above, are doubly affected. As a precaution, it is highly advisable for you to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet if you have it.

For those who are affected by the Double Wu Wang in the Northeast can wear the Vajrapani Ruel and a gold 5 – Element Pagoda (Five Element Pagoda) pendant, and a gold Kalachakra pendant. Carrying or surrounding yourself with Traditional Sutra Amulets like THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA or THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA or THE DIAMOND SUTRA will also greatly help and offer much protection.

In my earlier post about the same topic, I also said that this is the time for one to rely and have faith on prayers. For Catholics you can do your novenas or pray your rosary. For Christians and Muslims you can pray to your God and have faith in Him. For Taoist, you can ask special protection Fu from your Taoist priest. For Buddhist and those who would be willing to practice how Buddhist protect themselves now can do the following suggestions found below.

Go to the temple and light incense everyday.

Go to the temple and bow to the images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas everyday.

Donate to the poor or who are in need with utmost sincerity.

Chant the following mantras (minimum) 108x a day everyday:

  • Mantra of Amitabha Buddha: OM AMI DEWA HRIH
  • Mantra of Medicine Buddha: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA
  • Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion Guan Yin: OM MANI PADME HUM
  • Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani: OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  • Mantra of Bodhisattva Cundi Avalokitesvara (Chundi Avalokitesvara): NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CALE CULE CUNDI SOHA
  • Mantra of the Protective Deity Kalachakra: OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

You can also Recite the following Sutras as often as you can:

Let’s Talk About the Wu Lou or Holy Gourd Again!

Published Oktubre 10, 2016 by jptan2012

wu-louOne of the very few things I talked about in the blog is about the Wulou (also spelled as Wu Lou) or Holy Gourd. But I think it is worth talking about it again, because I notice that people seem to think that the Holy Gourd is only good for the helping to keep us healthy and as an illness cure. I have mentioned this before but maybe it didn’t quite sink in, but the Wulou is also a very powerful Wealth cure or charm and also a very good protection charm.

wu-lou2

Carrying an Wu Lou Amulet is one of the best way to tap into it’s power.

It is largely use as a health charm or cure because in the olden days, the Wulou usually contains medicine. But one has to remember that in the olden times, most medicines are also made of some kind of a wine or liquor, and in fact, it is also use a wine container, thus it also has become a symbol of wealth. In fact, it is one of the most powerful symbol of wealth that Feng Shui experts and consultants normally advice people to display a vase in the shape of a Wulou. In fact, the vase of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also spelled and called as Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Cannon, Kannon, Avalokitesvara) is also shape in the form of a Wulou. Furthermore, a lot of the Taoist Gods also carries a Wulou where it is said some of their powers are stored. And it is because of this that the Wulou is also highly regarded as a symbol of protection.

As you can see, the Wulou is a three – in – one Feng Shui charm or cure.

wu-lou3

But wearing it as a pendant, either made of gold or jade or any other precious or semi – precious stone is my favorite way of tapping to the power of a Wu Lou.

Simple Words Have the Power to Hinder Somebody Else’s Luck & Create Your Own Bad Luck!

Published Hulyo 9, 2016 by jptan2012

In the last past 15 years or so there is a resurgence in the belief in Feng Shui, this time, extending it to the Western world and also to non – Oriental Asians. Different professional Feng Shui consultants started giving out Feng Shui classes in languages other than in Chinese, most common is English.

Together with the resurgence of Feng Shui, the line between Feng Shui and Taoism and Buddhism begun to blur, because both religion also makes use of Feng Shui. Feng Shui experts and writers begun to write about Feng Shui and was not able to properly delineate the difference. This writer included.

But the real issue here is that anti – Feng Shui groups started to rise also. More concerning that some commercialize Feng Shui consultants started to rise and harbor anger against other Feng Shui consultants or experts or writers.

People also tended to forget that Feng Shui experts are also human, and are prone to make mistakes. My own personal life is a testament that Feng Shui writers like me can make mistakes, and I unintentionally made several mistakes to my readers, which I’m trying to correct.

But the worst thing is that because of these things, sometimes we tend to say things that are unwarranted or are simply not true. For example, Sean, whose experience about the Vajrapani Ruel I wrote about in the post called – A PERMANENT HIGH PAYING JOB IN SINGAPORE BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE VAJRAPANI RUEL : A PERSONAL TESTIMONY FROM A VERY VOCAL NON – BELIEVER!– According to Sean, he has read a lot of negative things about Feng Shui, not just about my blog, but other Feng Shui writers or consultant, in fact, the pastors in his religions claims that the practice of Feng Shui is the work of a devil and that invites evilness. This is quite surprising because in Buddhism we are taught to respect all religions, and that there is no such thing as an evil religion, well unless it espouses hate and divisiveness. But even then there is always a caveat that at the end it’s the intent not the act that really matters, and that only fate can judge us.

Again, the people who don’t believe in Feng Shui tend to say things against Feng Shui, or Taoism or Buddhism. Sometimes, they because they experience negative things against a Feng Shui consultant or expert they tend to bad mouth and create rumors about Feng Shui, Buddhism, and Taoism in general. Sometimes just because they didn’t get the thing that they want they tend to spread rumors and attacking something that they don’t have an actual experience of. The sad thing here is little do they know the extent of their words or acts. Sometimes, they prevent people from getting good luck just because of these words. Furthermore, what they really don’t know is the bad luck that they create because of their acts. They slander Buddhism and Taoism is like slandering the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Gods and Deities themselves. And the great bad karma that they get because of the their acts that prevented other people from getting their full luck is simply scary.

So next time, we should all remember that it’s okay to say what we believe in but it is best to stick with what we believe in. Do not slander other people’ s belief!
