These are just some of the headlines the past few days! While my mom was in the hospital, I was able to write several articles that is good for a month! I have already scheduled them to be automatically posted. However, the headline in the last few days prompted me to squeeze in some time to write and post this short article. As early as November, I have started writing about the bleak financial forecast of the year, and December I posted the full annual forecast that mentioned the possibility of stronger “earth” related calamities this year. And it seems to be happening already.
First, why you should believe the forecasts. It is because these are not conjured by psychic abilities, I do forecast by analyzing the movement of the stars and of the energies. This is done by computing them and analyzing them. In the past years, I have greatly shown some accuracy. I was the only Feng Shui writer who has publicly said that there will be a great calamity and some sort of famine that will happen in Visayas (central part of the Philippines) and that year Typhoon Haiyan (Typhoon Yolanda) happened. It was the strongest typhoon ever recorded in history. After that I did write about Nepal earthquake, and then some freak weather disturbances, and a lot more. These are all a matter of fact and you can easily check this blog to confirm. I’m writing this not because I want to go through some ego boosting exercise but rather I want to show you the trend of my forecasts for you to understand why I’m worried. At the very least, these forecasts cannot be attributed to my supernatural power because there is nothing supernatural in analyzing and computing the relationship of the elements and the stars of the year. This show my skill computing and analyzing them but it not something that is supernatural.
Anyway, I’m writing this because as you can see there are a lot of signs that what I’ve written are coming true. Global stock market plunges causing panic amongst financial analysts and businessmen. The DOW Jones also plunges by more than 1100+ points! Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency known for its high and good performance also have been steadily plunging down! In the Philippines, Coca – Cola is laying off 600 of its workers, while the official reason is restructuring, it doesn’t take an analyst to know what really cause it given that they made the decision when the TRAIN law took effect. In a country like the Philippines, one has to realized that 600 people doesn’t mean only 600 gets affected. Remember, 99% if not 100% will have somebody fully depending on them or partially depending on them, so 600 at a very conservative estimate means 1,200 people. And we all know that’s not the case because spouses, children, parents, siblings may be depending on these 600 people!!!! On top of that, fuel prices are getting higher. Again, almost everything is depending on fuels and so it won’t be surprising if everything follows suits!
Meanwhile, another forecast seems to be happening also. A few days ago, there was a deadly earthquake in Taiwan. Followed by a significantly strong earthquake in Ilocos Norte, Philippines. However, although not highlighted in the news there have been significantly strong earthquakes in several parts of the world. Some of these countries are Chile, Mexico, Peru, South Africa, Uganda, Japan, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, several parts of the USA including Alaska. And as I’ve written a few days ago, science to be confirming this forecast. (Earth Could See Twice As Many Big Earthquakes This Year!)
Now I’m writing this not to scare you. But to remind you that while we technically cannot do anything about the earthquakes, we can collectively pray and the power of prayer will definitely help in some way. Who knows it may even prevent the earthquake from happening, although we really cannot know this, it is enough to sincerely pray for this. But please understand that when I said that earth calamities, I’m not referring only to earthquakes but it includes landslides as well and as we all know there was a terrible mudslide that happened in the US. In fact, world famous celebrities Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres were both affected. Volcanic eruptions are also counted as earth element calamities because of the lava flow and the inevitable lahar problem.
This is a Kalachakra Pendant designed by Lillian Too. She has included some mandala sands inside the pendant to make it more potent. I personally love this pendant and has one that is made of white gold. The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.
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.
From my personal collection. This Jatukam Ramathep Amulet is from the 4th batch made at Wat Phra Mahathat Woromaha Vihan. This is the front side.
Regarding the financial crisis, we can also collectively say a prayer. In both circumstances, we should pray everyday the whole year. We should also ensure that we spend money wisely. But I strongly suggest that we should all be protected with wealth amulets like the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET and the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. It is better if you can have both because these two amulets will actively create wealth luck / financial luck / money luck for you! Carrying the VAJRAPANI RUEL will also aid in protecting you from getting fully affected. Of course, if you know of any other amulets that works you can use that also.
The Vaisavana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet has the consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings and the mantras of the Five Dzambhalas. Furthermore, there are some special ingredients in powder form that are included to add to the potency of the amulet. Before it is sealed it is furthered consecrated on the image of The Four Heavenly Kings.It is placed in a metal case, not just for its durability and protection but according to the Tantric Buddhist Scripture book where Guru Lama got the instructions for this amulet, it has to be placed in cylindrical metal case to symbolize continuity and stability.
On top of the 12 ‘big’ heavenly money coin, it also has another 5 heavenly money coin on each side of the it’s harness. This further represents that the ‘owner’ of the Pi Yao can harness wealth into his or her life. On each side of its hind legs is the symbol for protection. This represents protection from earthly dangers and envious eyes, and also harmony so that one doesn’t get into a rough, hostile situation is one’s quest to simply get more financial luck to provide for one’s family. Also incorporated is the symbol for longevity to constantly provide good health
It also has fierce but still friendly face, this indicates that while you can be fierce in business or work, you will still gain the support and admiration of the people around you. This also means that you can you charm to get to your wealth luck.
In all these, remember that prayer works! And so pray, pray, pray! I cannot remind you enough of the power of prayers especially these challenging times ahead.
To understand this year’s forecast, you should read all the other related 2018 Year of the Earth Dog Feng Shui Forecasts:
Late last year when I wrote about my analysis of the Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart of 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey, one of the things I wrote is the big possibility of a financial crisis. In that particular article, what will precipitate the said crisis will happen either the first part or the middle part of the year, but that the crisis will start to happen either middle of the year or last part of the year. Last June, US$ 1.00 is approximately around Php 44.00, and now it is (as of writing) Php 49.95, the highest is more than 8 years, and the first time to steadily jump up after more than 10 years. In another post, which I have decided will not be shared again; I also insinuated the cost of this financial crisis, at least, for our country.
If you look at the trend, US $ to Php should have started going down already because of the OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker)remittances, but on the third week of November it still continues to rise. Hopefully, it will still go down on December given that the OFW remittances are coming in, but even if goes down, it seems that it will jump up again coming January. I’m sharing this because we all need to get ready for this. I haven’t checked the bazi chart for the year 2017, and will do so soon and share with you my analysis as soon as possible.
Having said that, I will like to clarify that this is not a political post, and so I refrain from making assumptions as to what is causing the continues decline of the Philippine peso, but this I will say while the middle class to upper class are not yet feeling the effect of this financial crisis, we should not be blind to the ones on the lower income bracket who has taken a hit already.
In the past 3 months, I came across two former VIP bodyguards who is now an Uber driver or applying to be a driver. Their concern is that a lot of foreign investors have left the country or have downsized, and of course, not so many foreign VIPs are in need of bodyguard. Another reader also emailed me. Her son apparently works as a call center agent, but several smaller call center agencies have close shop, they are smaller but each one still have about 300 call center agents, not to mention janitors, guards, and non – call canter agent employees.
I’m sharing this because it is important that each one of us prepare for this financial crisis, if indeed it will become a full-blown crisis and I’m not saying it will. Although, I forecasted it, like the Yolanda forecast, the Nepal earthquake forecast, this is something that I’m not proud of nor I’m happy that my forecast has been vindicated.
I’m sure each one of us can do something. We can start of by supporting the good that our government is doing but we should also rally against the things that we perceived are wrong. When I say rally, I mean we should let our voices be heard in a non – violent and non – confrontational manner. Let’s email the government, let’s share our thoughts, and let us be the change, the improvement that we so desire to see.
And of course, do not forget the power of prayers, of going to church or temple, of lighting candles and incense and dedicating its merits for the financial improvement of the country, let us chant -a – mantra or recite – a sutra.
On a personal level, we should start protecting ourselves. Save up, invest properly, carry a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel or now the traditional sutra amulet like THE DIAMOND SUTRA and / or THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA, these amulets doesn’t become available now for no reason, they always become available at the right time.

I’m on the road today stuck in traffic reviewing some messages when I remembered that there is a lunar eclipse later. Then I remembered that yesterday was just the Mid – Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival, which means we still have the Harvest Moon today, and with eclipse happening which will last 4 hours, signifies something quite not nice.
I decided to write this while stuck in traffic and hope to be able to upload this using a pocket Wi-Fi. Hope it works.
If you were familiar with Feng Shui you would know that eclipse often affects the good chi of the universe, this usually signifies some sort of worldwide bad luck happenings. It can be war, weird weather occurrence, world market disturbance, etc. On top of that, if we are out when an eclipse happens, we will also get affected on a personal level. For those who are experiencing some bad luck, it is very important to avoid being out of the house during a lunar eclipse or even a solar eclipse. You should even avoid opening your windows and look at the eclipse.
The effect of the lunar eclipse happening later is worse than an ordinary eclipse. Why? Because it happens right after the Mid – Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival and as you might have read, Mid – Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival is actually a celebration of good harvest. Feng Shui experts have also taken this as an opportunity to ‘cleanse’ or renew oneself from the negative chi of the previous month, which is the Hungry Ghost Month.
For an eclipse to happen right after the Mid – Autumn Festival signifies that there might be some be some crisis or calamity that is about to happen soon. On a personal level the effect of this eclipse will be most likely has something to do with financial luck or wealth luck or bad luck. But of course, if you already have a problem and you are out of the house while the eclipse is happening, then chances that problem will intensify, regardless whether the problem is financial or personal.
Furthermore, although technically not covered by Feng Shui or Eastern Astrology, base on Western Astrology we are still under the Mercury Retrograde, so this Mercury Retrograde should further impede some problems and add to the negative effects of a lunar eclipse happening on a harvest moon. This also signifies that it may affect relationship problems other than those what was mentioned above.
The best things to do is stay indoor and close your windows and doors. Whether indoor or if you can’t avoid being outdoor while the eclipse is happening, it is best to totally protected. For this, I would strongly suggest for you to wear the Kalachakra symbol made of gold or jade, Vajrapani Ruel, or Surangama Mantra Amulet. If you don’t have these, you can wear the symbolic script of the manta of Buddha Amitabha, or Bodhisattva Vajrapani, or the Deity Kalachakra.

A few months back, a reader who happens to be the CEO of one of a big company called me up because he is having some concerns. He said his company is in a crisis because the investor and the board of directors are not very happy on how he is running is company. They felt that the people of the company views him as a weak leader, and he himself has admitted that he is torn in becoming a stricter leader and a compassionate boss. However, being nice to the people of his company made them abuse him. Thus department heads and directors tend to do as they own thing. His position is in danger because of a possible hostile take over.
He is really worried because truth be told he is the one who put up the company, and to expand he has accepted investors who became part of the board. While he remains to be the majority stockholder, two shareholders sharing their share will overtake his share. And this is what his two brothers are planning to do, merge their share so that they can take the company from him.
To summarize his problem, he said he needs his investors and board of directors to be more compassionate to their employees, but at the same time, he said he needs enough ‘power’ to be able to bring his company back to it’s former glory, but at the same time wisdom to do it properly.
When I looked at his office I saw that there are some changes that has to be done, but he said he cannot do it immediately and while he got the Vajrapani Ruel, which is a very powerful amulet, we both felt that chanting some mantras will help.
Namo Vajrapani Bodhisattva / Bodhisattva Vajrapani
I will have to clarify that all Bodhisattvas embodies all these traits: Compassion, Wisdom, and Power. However, there are some traits that are more prominent in some because of the vows that a Bodhisattva made. Everybody who chants the mantra of Kuan Yin (also spelled as Guan Yin or Kwan Yin or Gwan Yin) would know that this is one of the most powerful mantra one can chant. But I thought letting him chant each of these mantra so that these traits that he needs for himself and for his company should become more enhanced.
He would chant the said mantra under deep meditation every morning, and all throughout the day, when he find himself idle (like when he is on the elevator or walking or stuck in traffic) he would alternately chant these mantras.
Several months after, he called me up to tell me that the Vajrapani Ruel and chanting the mantras created harmony and a more compassionate board and at the same time he felt he has made a more powerful and correct decisions to steer the company back to its older glory without ‘harming’ anybody.

Again, as part of my commitment of more natural remedies to problem, and to prove that they may be as effective as the Vajrapani Ruel, I would like to share with you the story of AG.
AG is a mother of two children. She was 41 when she first found out that she has stage 3-breast cancer, an aggressive form of cancer at that, with both kids still in high school, this news came as doubly devastating for her. However, to make things worst, just before her diagnosis she just found out that her husband is hooked on drugs and has become an addict.
Like most people, it was out of desperation that she searched for a possible cure or help outside of medical science and outside of her own religion. Because of her boss, who happens to be a Chinese and Buddhist, she was introduced to a temple in Quezon City here in the Philippines.
According to AG she was initially wretched with guilt for going to a Buddhist temple, something that was strictly prohibited by their church, however, she said she thought of her children and as to what will happen to them if she dies and if their father, her husband, continues to be an addict. And so she was ‘forced’ to enter the temple accompanied by her boss. After being introduced to a monk and pouring her heart out, she was instructed by the monk to chant the Chinese version of the mantra of Medicine Buddha. She was also given some Temple Water or Auspicious Water to drink.
AG, without the knowledge of her husband decided to follow the instructions of the Buddhist monk. She would chant the mantra in the morning and evening and every time possibly can. She would chant it while going through chemotherapy. Out of instinct, because she was told she can chant the mantra and blow on a glass of water to make the water a healing water, she instinctively chant over her medicines and blow over them while the chemicals are getting inside her body to fight her cancer cells. On top of that, she decided to continuously drink the temple water and would let her husband drink them while she silently chant the mantra with the hope that her husband quit his addiction.
While her cure was not astoundingly miraculous, AG still feels that there was indeed divine intervention. According to her, her doctor has continuously remarked that she was responding to the treatment far better than expected and that the side effects on her was not as bad. She was given 5 years to be careful before they can fully say that she survived cancer.
All this was 17 years ago. I met AG because thru a friend, and she said she could now be totally considered as a survivor. There was no remission in 17 years! AG believes that the miracle was all due to the mantra that she constantly chanted.
As for her husband, her husband suddenly went cold turkey over drugs. It is as if he just woke up one day and thought he can live without drugs, and he did! Also for 17 years now!
I guess one can say that they’re both survivor!
I just want to add that they now have 5 grandchildren from their children!
By this time you must have heard of the Ebola crisis that’s taking the attention of all the news agency of the world. To some extent, it has even overshadowed the genocide crisis perpetuated by ISIS. One must be literally living under a rock to not have heard of the Ebola crisis.
This is not the first Ebola outbreak; in fact, Ebola was first discovered in the seventies. Since then there have been different Ebola strains that have been discovered, but according to the news, the strain that is spreading now is the most fatal of all Ebola strains. Usually, Ebola never goes out of Africa, because for some reason it dies a natural ‘death’, and it becomes manageable although not less infectious. This particular outbreak has been going on for several months but it reached its worldwide crisis point, in what I called its ‘boiling point’ a point when it becomes uncontrollable during the Hungry Ghost month. This is not very surprising because as mentioned in the post – WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE. We have a 5 – month bad period which will deplete the current year’s energy. The said energy should refresh itself again when we near the 2015 Chinese New Year.
However, in this particular outbreak, although there was a cry for help, the world was too busy with something else and nobody listened to the cries of the people of Africa. I think by acknowledging that they have made some technical mistakes, WHO also admitted that they didn’t put enough attention to this latest outbreak, I can’t blame them because historically speaking people and science always wins over Ebola.
Now the question is this going to be a worldwide pandemic? If there’s going to be more infections outside Africa, such as what is happening now in US and the one in Spain, I’m afraid it is going to be an uncontrollable thing. For example, here in the Philippines, are we ready for such crisis. We have some of the best infectious diseases experts in the country, but are we technologically ready? Do we have the proper gear for our health workers?
I was just on the phone with my Guru Lama, and according to him one of the greatest lesson so far of what this Ebola crisis has taught us is that we should never stop caring, in fact, his very exact words, if loosely translated is WE SHOULD NOT STOP CARING INFINITELY FOR ALL BEINGS. Ebola happened in Africa, in some of the remote villages of Africa. Nobody heard them crying for help because they’re far and nobody thought this has the potential to become a worldwide crisis.
Ebola is everybody’s concern, because if it gets any worst than this it will become the next pandemic and I don’t think any country is ready for this. It is going to be so much worst than SARS and the AH1N1. Ebola is extremely fatal.
Furthermore, if you can do make offerings of a lighted candle to the image of a Medicine Buddha. On top of that, spinning a prayer wheel, whether a handheld, table top, or pendant type of prayer wheel in dedication to stop the Ebola crisis will also help.
Let us remember, that Ebola might not be here yet, but if this doesn’t stop we will soon have to face it. This might not seem much, but right now this is the best we can do so let’s do it.
