The Holy Trinity of Protection: 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep Essential Cures

Published Disyembre 30, 2014 by jptan2012

Every year people ask me as to what is the essential charm of the year. The direct answer to this is that will largely depend on your Chinese animal zodiac, for example, if you’re born in the year of the Sheep, Monkey, Horse, Ox you definitely had to guard yourself against Tai Suey (Tai Sui) because you are either directly or on side affliction with the Tai Suey. Those born under the year of the Rooster should definitely have the 5 – Element Pagoda because you’re afflicted with the 5 – Yellow Star, for your reference I suggest that you read my earlier posts about the forecast for the 2015 year of the Wood Sheep.

Although I have said this before, I guess it is worth repeating here, the #3 Flying Star, which is also known as the Argumentative Star this years flies to the center. This means the ruling star of the year is the #3 Flying Star and it is bound to make all things a more heated. The ruling star is the prevailing energy of the year, and that means it dictates the possible most common occurrence of the year. However, the destructive pillar in the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee chart shows that the wood element is destroying the earth element, together with the position of the 24 Mountain Stars further strengthen this Argumentative Star. Thus for the year the #3 Flying Star is stronger than usual.

Some of its effects are that there would be an increase of quarrel. It can be a misunderstanding or a fight between husband and wife, parents and children, sibling against sibling, relatives against relatives, and neighbors against neighbors. It can also be a fight against your boss, clients, or it may even be from a stranger. The arguments can lead to bigger things like separation, legal cases, or depending on your luck, it might even lead physical harm or violent death!

Because of the strength of this star this year I highly recommend that everyone should have on display at his or her home and office and worn as a pendant what I call the Holy Trinity of Protection for this coming 2015, which is the Year of the Wood Sheep.

The Holy Trinity of Protection are the following:

  • Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra. You can read my posts about Kuan Yin  to understand what is her significance, but simply put Kuan Yin is a Bodhisattva who bestows peace and harmony, amongst other possible blessings. I have written about it extensively in three different posts entitled – KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEARS THE CRIES OF THE WORLD, followed by UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN, and lastly PAYING HOMAGE TO KUAN YIN, THE BUDDHA OF COMPASSION. Meanwhile, having ‘The Heart of the Prajna Paramita Sutra’ otherwise known as Heart Sutra will further strengthen the harmonious energy. This is important because it is not only very important that we suppress the #3 Flying Star or Argumentative Star but it is also very imperative that we help push for harmony and peace. If you prefer to use a non – religious image, you can also display an apple, preferably real and make sure you change it before it rots. But with the Heart Sutra it might not be as effective. It might be a little difficult to get a pendant of Kuan Yin with the Heart Sutra, but separately carrying the sutra will work also.

    Sometimes it can be quite difficult to get a Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra Pendant, and it can be quite expensive also. So simply wearing a Kuan Yin pendant and separately carrying the Heart Sutra printed really to make it an amulet (Sutra Amulet) will also work as well.

You can also just get the Sutra Amulet and put it at the foot of an image of Kuan Yin, if you are unable to get a Kuan Yin image with Sutra.

     

    There are different kinds of Sutra Amulets. Look for one that has the Heart Sutra. They can be tied to your mala beads if you always carry your mala beads with you, or can be tied to your mobile phone or simply put in your pocket. Just make sure you don't seat on them!

    Sutra Amulets are basically sutras printed really small and made into a very small book so that one can carry it as an amulet. The Sutra Amulets effectivity will depend on what sutra is printed inside.

    You can also look for the Heart Sutra rings such as the one in the picture.

  • Kuan Kong or Namo Sangharama Bodhisattva. Kuan Kong is a very famous War General when he was still alive. You can read my posts about Kuan Kong entitled – Kuan Kong and Namo Sangharama Bodhisattva. Wearing an image of Kuan Kong will help suppress and protect you from the direct effects of the #3 Flying Star, furthermore, Kuan Kong will help you be more diplomatic, so should you find yourself in a heated situation and walking away is really not an option, then tapping on Kuan Kong’s energy will help you talk your way out of the situation, you’ll find yourself being more diplomatic. Furthermore, Kuan Kong is a renowned strategist, so having his image will also help you become more strategic thus helping you get out of a heated situation, if not totally preventing it. In choosing a Kuan Kong, it is better if you look at the face; the fierce nice face is the key for a nice Kuan Kong. The fiercer it is the better. It is also better if you wear a Kuan Kong either in yellow gold or a red stone or for house or office a Kuan Kong with a red face. If you don’t want to use Kuan Kong, you can also use the Ksitigarbha Fireball, but remember this will only help suppress the star but not help you become more diplomatic.Kuan Kong23
    Always look at the face of the Kuan Kong pendant that you're getting for yourself. The 'braver' the face the better.

  • Kalachakra. A Kalachakra is a ten – fold symbolic script of a very powerful ten – syllable protective mantra. The Kalachakra will help protect you from the peripheral effects of the unusually stronger #3 Flying Star. The effects of the Argumentative Star might not directly affect you yourself, however, the people around you may not be protected, and you might be indirectly affected. One clear example of this base on a real story. A client’s brother (VA) had a tragic incident that lead to his death, the sad thing about it he was actually an innocent party. He and some of his friends decided to meet for dinner. One of his friends (LM), while on his way to pick VA up, got into a fight with another driver. They had a heated argument on the road, but LM decided to just ‘walk away’ and drove off and ignores the other driver. Little did he know that he was followed. The other driver followed him to VA’s house where VA was waiting for him outside of his house. When LM was nearing the house, the other driver took who happened to have a gun took a shot a LM, he missed but LM lost control of his car, and bumped into VA. VA died approximately two weeks after the accident. This is an example of a peripheral effect. I’m not saying that this is what’s going to happen, but it can be something similar or maybe not as bad, but whatever it is it is better to stay protected.
    The Kalachakra symbol is one of the most powerful protection symbol in Buddhism. It actually consists of ten syllable mantra, with it symbolic script condensed into one. The mantra itself is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, the mantra of the Kalachakra is never chanted without the mantra OM AH HUM. Making the complete mantra of Kalachakra - OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. This is the reason why I decided to put the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM on top of the Kalachakra symbol. As mentioned this is a very powerful protection symbol and can be likened to the Scapular of the Catholics. In fact, you'll seldom see a Tibetan Monk with wearing the symbol of the Kalachakra on their body. It may be hidden but most likely they have it somewhere on their body. But you'll never see them have the symbolic scripts tattooed because it is considered extremely bad luck to have a mantra tattooed on your body.

2012 Year of the Water Dragon Feng Shui Essential Charms

Published Enero 12, 2012 by jptan2012

I’ve been receiving email and inquiries as to what are the Feng Shui essential charms (lucky charms) for protection from the negative chi and enhancers for the positive chi for the year of the Water Dragon.

I listed the essential charms in my previous posts…

2012 Year of the Water Dragon Feng Shui Flying Star Forecast

Feng Shui-Chinese Zodiac Forecast for 2012 Year of the Water Dragon (Part 1)

Feng Shui-Chinese Zodiac Forecast for 2012 Year of the Water Dragon (Part 2)

However, if you just want to found out about the essential cures(protectors) and enhancers without knowing the reason behind it. Please read thru the rest of the posts.

I. FLYING STARS FENG SHUI CURES AND ENHANCERS:

EAST:

Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks / Symbol of Double Happiness, Amethyst Geode with Red String tied on the foot of the bed.

Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks

Chinese Characters or Words are very symbolic. Does they become effective Feng Shui tools also.

Amethyst Geode with Red String

SOUTH:

Victory Banner / Image of a Horse, Three Celestial Guardian

For people who stays in the section of the house or office please wear THE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT.

Victory Banner

When choosing a horse for feng shui purposes, its important that you choose a horse that has a winning or winner look.

Three Celestial Guardinas consists of the Fu Dog, Pi Yao (Piyao), and Chi Lin (Chilin).

The front side of THE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT has the image of 'The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven' Sun Wukong.

At the back of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION is the title GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN in Chinese characters, followed by the 3 Celestial Guardians, and then at the bottom are the Five Element Pagoda and Ksitigarbha Fireball. I'm also currently looking for a jeweler who can carve the images and symbols of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT on a jade, that is because Chinese loves jade and a lot of people have been inquiring about a JADE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT.

CENTER:

Crystal Balls / 6 White Jade tied with a Red String

For 2012 its better to use a red crystal ball.

6 White Jade tied with a Red String. You need not have the Wu Lou at the end.

WEST:

Faux Gold Bars or Ingots or Coins / Wealth Deities (Maitreya Buddha or Kuan Kong or Sun Wukong)

Faux golld bars, ingots, and coins.

In choosing an image of a Happy Buddha, you have to look carefully at the face. It has really to look happy.

In choosing a Kuan Kong look for something that has a fierce face. Kuan Kong or Guan Gong is a famous wealth and protector god.

'The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven' Monkey King called Sun Wukong is a very powerful wealth and protector god that's both highly revered in Taoism and Buddhism.

NORTHWEST:

Image of Sun Wukong (aka Monkey God) / Image of Guan Gong (aka Kuan Kong) / Mantra Plaque / Image of Elephant with Rhinoceros

Mantra Plaque

Elephant and Rhinoceros Plaque

Foe head of the family/business/corporation/organization whose room is in the Northwest section of the house. Please wear one of the following: Sun Wukong Pendant / Kuan Kong Pendant / Mantra Pendant / WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT.

The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION has one of the best images of Sun Wukong that's in a pendant. It's really difficult to look for a good Sun Wukong pendant.

This is a Tibetan Mantra pendant. I'm not in the process of having my jeweler craft the Mantra pendant that I personally designed. It has the mantra of the THE MEDICINE BUDDHA, YELLOW DZAMBHALA (JAMBALA OR DZAMBALA) MANTRA, THE WISH-FULFILLING MANTRA, THE NEGATIVE KARMA CLEANSING MANTRA, THE SEED SYLLABLE OF GREEN TARA, and OM AH HUM. It also has the image of The Medicine Buddha, Yellow Dzambhala, Guan Gong, Kalachakra Symbol and the Victory Banner. It's another all-in-one pendant.

SOUTHWEST:

Ksitigarbha Fireball

For Matriarchs whose room is in the Southwest section of the house. Please wear or carry a small Ksitigarbha Fireball (pendant or keychain) / Maitreya (Happy Fat) Buddha Pendant.

The Ksitigarbha Fireball is a pearl hold by Ksitigarbha Buddha that fires up when there are negative energies.

Happy Buddha Pendant. Again, you need to look for something that has a postive feel.

NORTH:

Wu Lou (Holy Gourd) / Image of Medicine Buddha

For people who stays at this section of the house, and also for middle sons and people born under the sign of the Rat, please wear a Jade Wu Lou or a Medicine Buddha pendant (preferably with Mantra).

Five Element Pagoda designed by Lillian Too of World of Feng Shui (WOFS). She also has other versions but you need not get the different version. This one will do. I also have a supplier who is able to make one at a more affordable price.

Dou Mu Yuan Jun (The Goddess of the North Star)

Pi Yao is a Celestial Being that pleases the Tai Suey God.

For people who stays in this section of the house please wear the following-Five Element Pagoda Pendant, Dou Mu Yuan Jun Pendant/Piyao. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT is a very powerful cure also.

Five Element Pagoda Pendant

Dou Mu Yuan Jun Pendant is a pendant designed by Feng Shui consultant Joseph Chau.

Piyao Pendant

Most of the charms mentioned above are available in the malls (except for the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT). However, they can pretty expensive. I can help you get some of them thru my friends in HK or Taiwan. Please just email me at sanaakosirickylee@gmail.com or leave a comment.
