Recently, I was talking to a mom who laments the fact that her daughter is hoping to a promotion which seems elusive. She is a regular reader of this blog and somehow instinct tells her that there is something wrong with where her daughter sleeps. You see by reading this blog she instinctively understood the basic principle or guidelines of Feng Shui and she somewhat knows that what hinders her daughter’s career growth or progress is because she sleeps at the lower deck of the double deck or double decker bed.
Sleeping in double deck bed is a Feng Shui blunder, if you sleep at the lower deck it hinders growth, and when you sleep at the upper deck it signifies lack of support does making things harder. If this is unavoidable it is better to sleep at the upper deck but the best option is really just to avoid sleeping on a double deck bed whether you sleep at the lower or upper deck.

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.
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:
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.

Regular readers of this blog know that every 7th month of the lunar calendar is really a bad month because of the Dreaded Hungry Ghost. This is still true for this year, however, because we also have the Five Yellow Star on the center this year, which is further enhance by another Five Yellow Star because of the monthly flying star, it makes this year’s Hungry Ghost Month, a really bad month.
What this does is that the Double Five Yellow will increase the effects of the Hungry Ghost Month, and the Hungry Ghost Month also doubles the Double Five Yellow Star.
I will not go into details about the Five Yellow and the Hungry Ghost, if you’re a new reader and is interested to find out about the Hungry Ghost, please read my post the Dreaded Hungry Ghost and from there on you can read all the other posts including how Chung Kwei can protect you from this the dreaded effects of the Hungry Ghosts.
However, for this year’s Hungry Ghost Month, because we also have a Double Five Yellow Star, it is also extremely recommended that all of us wear or carry the Five Element Pagoda, but furthermore, all of us will also need to wear a Kalachakra Pendant. It is important that we should realize that it is essential that we have all 3 protection amulets or symbols.
There are different versions of the 5-Element Pagoda. However, personally the original version and a small one, I believe, is okay and powerful enough to counter the effects of the 5-Yellow Star.
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 I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.
This is a rare black jade pendant image of Chung Kwei. Was fortunate enough to find one in Beijing, China in a small shop.
I also received some inquiries as to when is the Hungry Ghost Day; apparently there has been some confusion because there are websites that states that Hungry Ghost Day is on August 20, 2013. I would like to set the record straight; Hungry Ghost Day is on August 21, 2013. You can do your won calculations, the first day of the Hungry Ghost month is on August 7, 2013, and you just need to count, taking note that Hungry Ghost day is on the 15th day.
But that’s not all, because we also have 3 days in the month of August that has a Triple Five Yellow days, it will be wise for everybody to take special precaution and care on these days. Don’t do anything that might put yourself at risk. The triple yellow dates are August 6, 15, and 24.
