Do Not Create Feng Shui Blunder By Making Renovations Without Checking For A Good Date: A Brief Reminder

Published Mayo 2, 2018 by jptan2012

Note: This article was written last January, but I just realized recently that I haven’t posted it. This makes for a good Feng Shui reminder also before the ending of this blog, so I’m posting it now.

I have written about this before, but I guess it is only fitting that I write about it again given the past few months I have about 7 readers who committed this blunder.

In making major renovations it is necessary that we must make sure we all check the date when we will be making the renovation. This is because in Feng Shui (as well as in Taoism and Buddhism) there are so called good dates and bad dates. This means that there are dates wherein one cannot make renovations either in the office or at home. This is because there are dates that is ‘chiong’ or “against” (for the lack of the better term) certain animal signs. For example, as I write this today, January 18, the date is “chiong” the sign of the Rooster and Ox. This mean today (as I write this, which is definitely not the day of posting) is not a good day for people born under the sign of the Rooster and Ox to do anything big, especially to make any form of renovations.

One other reason is that there are days wherein it is bad to fix a house not because it is a day that is “chiong” any sign but that there days wherein it is simply bad because there days where in a certain hostile or negative “Mara” or spiritual landlord is stronger on that day. Doing any renovations on that day will seem to be an attack on the said Mara or spiritual landlord.

“Spiritual Landlord” are unseen entities that has been “living” in our lands or house or office even before us. This concept is both accepted concepts in Taoist Feng Shui and even Buddhist Feng Shui. These are entities that are neither good nor bad, but once “attacked” may make them wreak certain negative energies.

Furthermore, and the simplest reason is that there are certain days that are simply bad for doing any renovations because the energies of the day base on the configuration of the stars on that day.

As mentioned above, there are 7 readers of this blog that made that blunder the past few months. One of these reader is my friend BM. BM had some renovations done. She is mostly aware of the “rules”, however, she thought that since she was doing only minor renovations, it should be fine even if she doesn’t check the date.

In a way, she’s right. Minor renovations can be done anytime. However, if you are fixing the roof, ceiling, or the floor, no matter how small it is or how physically minor it is, Feng Shui wise it is not minor. As long as you’ve touched the roof, the ceiling and the floor it is no longer considered as minor even if the area being done is less than an inch!

You might think that something so simple will not do any harm, but if you do it on a really bad day base on the configuration of the stars, and coupled with a day that is “chiong” your animal sign or of any member of your family, and then it is a day of a certain Mara or spiritual landlord then that creates a lot of problem.

In BM’s case, it created some problem with her husband’s business. It was fixed with a simple but quite “pricey” and long ritual. Another reader was lucky enough to be able to get away with it with a short offering and some chanting of mantras. Furthermore, another reader had to do a three-day ritual involving prostrating in front of an image of a Buddha for 49 times!!!!

The cures are actually different depending on the date, the Mara or spiritual landlord you “attacked” or on the severity of the effect.

The best way to handle this though is to be preventive about it, so it is better to check on a good date first. I have seen people literally die of accidents, get invalid, or lose all their money just because they made a seemingly minor renovation on a wrong date.

So, the next time you think of having some renovations better consult a Feng Shui expert or a Feng Shui consultant for this.

The Darker Part of the Year Base on the 2017 Bazi Chart Has Started!

Published Oktubre 4, 2017 by jptan2012

I think most, if not all, Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui writers or Feng Shui consultants (whether commercialized or not) agrees that we have officially entered the darker part of THE the year base on the 2017 bazi chart (paht chee chart). Regular readers of this blog will remember that I have written about this during my annual forecast.

First, I wrote that a ‘calamity’ will happen on the 3rd quarter of the year or it may start to happen at around the third quarter and we will start to feel its effect towards the 4th quarter or next year. Please note that I’m talking about the 3rd quarter to 4th quarter of the lunar month and not of the Western Calendar that we regularly use officially.

Just recently, internationally famous Feng Shui expert Lillian Too has announced that we have entered the darker part of the year. My Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong has said the same thing and furthermore, my Guru Lama has said the energies of the year have since become more negative.

Last Hungry Ghost month, which was in the 3rd quarter of the Lunar Month, saw the calamities and typhoons that struck different countries. I have written about this but failed to mention that it happened also in Nepal, India and other countries. It also happened recently in Puerto Rico, which was at the tail end of the Hungry Ghost month, but the real tragedy is that the POTUS refused to help them and became more concerned about trivial matter.

Rohingya Muslims persecutions has also become worst and might have reached it’s peak during the Hungry Ghost month.

In the Philippines, politically speaking we are in a turmoil. I don’t want to be political on this blog, but if you base it on the bazi chart and what my Guru Lama is saying, something bad has started to brew and will see it’s effect soon, which is towards the end of the year or early next year.

What is important now, regardless of your political belief or affiliation, is for you to think beyond yourself and think for this country or for this world. And I’m saying this not just for the Filipinos but also for everybody who reads regardless of whether where you live. Remember, there is brewing war that involves North Korea – USA – Japan. This war is not a matter of ‘if’ but rather of ‘when’. And the truth is it has started on a more discreet level.

Again, generally speaking a good leader is somebody who unifies rather than one who is divisive. A good leader accepts that there will be opposition and embrace it as part of it’s growth, and not somebody who tries to attack and silence those who attack him or her. A good leader is somebody who sticks to the facts and not makes up stories to malign those who oppose him or her. A good leader doesn’t come up with false stories just because he or she knows that there are people who are blind followers.

But it is time for us to get out of our own comfort zone because we have to share the truth; each of us has to do that in our own way. And we should all start praying that things will get better. We can oppose these dark energies with prayers.

On a personal level, money matters might become harder thus my Guru Lama decided to release the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET (1), and on top of that one should always protect oneself with good deeds, prayers, and amulets.

While we should be more concern on the macro effects of the dark energies that has come in, it is not to say that this will not have any effect on us on a personal level. As mentioned, on a personal level the effect will be mostly financial, although it might have some effect on communication and personal relationships as well. Furthermore, it will have an effect on our personal safety. It is important that one continues to pray and save some money. Again protect yourself, wear your gold Kalachakra pendant, or Vajrapani Ruel, or even the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, the Illness Suppression Amulet. If you don’t have these, you can wear an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store (aka Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva), Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also spelled or called as Kuan Shi Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Quan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Avalokitesvara, Chenrezig, Kannon, Bodhisattva of Compassion, Goddess of Mercy), or Buddha Amitabha, or Medicine Buddha.

The Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet: An Introduction to a Very Powerful Wealth Amulet!

Published Agosto 30, 2017 by jptan2012

In my previous post I talked about the Four Heavenly Kings, which are actually Buddhist Gods. If you haven’t read that post, I suggest go and read it first for you to truly understand this post better. Read it by clicking here.

One of the most common concern of people in the past, in the present, and I presume in the future is financial stability. In Buddhism, money is not evil; in fact, one sign of a blessed life is having money. Nevertheless, what we do with the money is what determines evil or good, but that is a topic for another post.

After some discussion, Guru Lama has told me to write about The Four Heavenly Kings and today’s post so that people will know that in the midst of what seems like a worldwide phenomenon of financial problem or struggles, there is still something that we can do so that we don’t get pulled into the mud of financial struggle. In the Philippines, a lot of people are complaining about the continuous weakening of the Philippine peso, and while we can complain and complain, in reality we should all strive to work harder, pray harder, and gather our inner strength to fight this concern.

A famous Feng Shui expert has talked about King Vaisravana or Namtose (Namthose) already, and it is largely because of this also why Guru Lama has said that I should start writing about the Four Heavenly Kings and to write this post, to really put everything in the perspective that he felt it should be written. Note though that this is just how Guru Lama wants it put and that although we don’t know in detail what was said about King Vaisravana, I’m writing it in a way that Guru Lama thinks is the best way to explain it.

Note: The post about the Four Heavenly Kings and this post have both been reviewed first by Guru Lama prior to posting.

Guru Lama felt it is only proper to talk about the Four Heavenly Kings first to disabuse the notion that in Buddhism, our gods are all about money.

In the preceding post about the Four Heavenly Kings, I mentioned that King Vaisravana the head of all the Four Heavenly Gods is wealth god himself, and that he rules over all Yaksas (also spelled as Yaksha), and amongst these Yaksas are the Dzambhalas or the Five Dzambhalas (also spelled as Dzambala, Jambhala, Jambala, Zambala, Zambhala). In this blog, I have already talked about Yellow Dzambhala and White Dzambhala, but as instructed by Guru Lama, allow me to talk about all the 5 Jambhalas again.

First, what are the Jambhalas?

Jambhala (again also spelled as Dzambhala, Dzambala, Jambala, Zambhala, Zambala) is what we call the God of Wealth or Gods of Wealth of the Buddhist. They are known 5 Dzambhala, who are member of the Jewel Family of the Buddhist tradition. Some say that Dzambhalas are manifestations of Bodhisattvas and Buddhas in Yaksha form to help people have a better grasp of their worldly powers. Each Dzambhala has its own mantra to help eliminate poverty and create financial stability.

According to Gyalten Sogdzin Rinpoche Dzambhalas are products of a Bodhisattva’s tears that turn into a Yaksha to aid sentient being to have material and spiritual wealth as well as to help have attain financial stability.

Because in this world, there are all kinds of wrathful and negative emotions or bad spirits, and sometimes they will harm you and other sentient beings, Dzambhala must take on such a wrathful and powerful form to protect us from these harmful spirits and negative karma. Especially, Dzambhala helps us minimize or decrease all misfortunes and obstacles and helps us increase all good fortune and happiness.”

The Five Dzambhalas are Green Dzambhala, Yellow Dzambhala, White Dzambhala, Red Dzambhala, Blue or Black Dzambhala. In Buddhism and Feng Shui as well as Taoism Blue and Black are considered as the same color.

GREEN DZAMBHALAJambala green

  • Is the chief of the 5 Dzambhalas and is said to be the yaksha. He is usually depicted to be standing upon a corpse and holding a mongoose in his left hand and a Kapala (a skull cap) in his right hand. He is usually depicted carrying a jewel producing mongoose in his right hand and has a consort. When depicted as seated, he sits in a vajra position with a Dakini in front of him. His right foot is almost always above a snail and a lotus flower.
  • The mantra of Green Dzambhala is: OM KARMA DZAMBHALA AH SOHA

 

WHITE DZAMBHALAjambala white

  • Is a Dzambhala who removes suffering from poverty and sickness. He also purifies non – virtuous karmic obstacles, and van averts illness and disaster. White Dzambhala is said to have been born from the right eye of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara (Also known or spelled as Chenrezig, Kannon, Quan Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Kuan Yin), which is also known as the Bodhisattva of Compassion.
  • White Jambhala sits on a snow lion or dragon, and is holding a mongoose in his left hand. The mongoose is said to spit out diamond and other precious items. He also holds a Wealth Banner in his left arm, some Buddhist traditions claims that it is a Victory Banner that he holds. In his right arm is a gold sword.
  • The mantra of White Dzambhala is: OM PADMO KRODA ARYA JAMBALA HRIH DAYA HUM PHAT

 

YELLOW DZAMBHALAjambala yellow

  • Perhaps the most famous or known Dzambhala of all Dzambhalas. It is said that he is the most powerful of all the Wealth Gods. Yellow Dzambhala can increase good virtues, life span and wisdom. He can also remove poverty with the six realms.
  • A lot of you are familiar with Yellow Dzambhala so I won’t really go into detail about him.
  • The mantra of Yellow Jambhala is: OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE SOHA

 

RED DZAMBHALAjambala red

  • Uniquely, Red Jambhala is the only Dzambhala constantly depicted as practicing with his consort, which is the heavenly mother of wealth that is in – charge of the wealth in the human realm. According to Guru Lama in the olden days, Red Dzambhala is only introduced to the Kings and Emperors, or people with authority or position of power, because the power was then deemed to be only suitable for them for it could attract not only wealth but also fame. It is said that chanting the mantra of Red Dzambhala wealth, fame but it will also gather support of the people. Furthermore, the mantra of Red Jambhala can also attract marital bliss and harmony within the family.
  • The mantra of Red Dzambhala is: OM DZAMBHAL DZALIN DRAYE DHANAM MEDIHI HRIH DAKINI DZAMBHLA SAMBHARA SOHA

 

BLUE DZAMBHALA / BLACK DZAMBHALAjambala black

  • Is said to have manifested from the waters of the river and gave transmission of generating wealth to king whose kingdom was under extreme financial difficulty. It is said the Blue Jambhala (Black Jambhala) greatly benefits and favors the people who are in extreme poverty if they chant his mantra. It is said that he will purify all bad lucks and obstacles that cause financial problems. He also prevents loss of wealth thru debts and robbery or theft. He can also subdue a human’s ego and eliminate greed.
  • Please note that one should not confuse Black Dzambhala with that of Bodhisattva Vajrapani.
  • The mantra of Blue Dzambhala/Black Dzambhala is: OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE BASHU DHARINI SOHA

It is inevitable for me to explain, as instructed by Guru Lama, for me to explain and talk about the Four Heavenly Kings first and to introduce all the God of Wealth – Dzambhalas, before I can really talk about and share with you the good news about the powerful Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet.

Some might consider this as a fairly young and unknown amulet, but according to Guru Lama, this perception is false, for the instructions on how to make this amulets are found in Tantric Buddhist Scriptures.

About two decades ago, when Guru Lama was much younger but who is already heading a temple as it’s Chief Abbot, he was approached by one his Sangha member (temple goer) who goes to the temple, this person is a devout Buddhist and is one of the most compassionate person Guru Lama has met. He will seldom complain, but because he goes to temple almost everyday, Guru Lama would talk to him a lot, and from there he realized that this man has lived a difficult life mostly because he was in poverty. Guru Lama seldom notices how a person dresses, it is as if he sees through the dress or clothes and will just see the person devoid of his financial status in life. But according to Guru Lama, one day this man can’t bear the hardship much longer because he was unable to pay for his wife’s hospitalization and medicines that he just cried and cried while talking to Guru Lama. According to Guru Lama, it is as if he was awakened and notices that the man’s clothes are worn out and to put it simply and directly, he does look poor.

Guru Lama set out to help the man and raise funds for him. However, he knew that this was a temporary help. And so he meditated to know what he could do for this man. In his meditative state he saw a book fell off from one of the shelves in their temple library, which according to Guru Lama was much smaller than it is now. He knew right away that he has been guided by the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to check out this book. He remembers clearly which book ‘fell off from the shelf’ in his meditative state and so he went to check this book. Much to his dismay it was a Tantric Buddhist Scripture that can only be read by senior lamas. He was already a senior lama at that time, but a Tantric Buddhist Scripture is one of the most difficult books or books in Buddhism. But since he knew the answers could be found in those pages, he set out to read it.

Three weeks after he came across the instruction on how to make the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, and knew immediately that this what the Sangha member needs, and so following all the rules and strict guidelines, he set out to make one.

When he gave the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, which is an amulet that has to be consecrated under the Four Heavenly Kings (not just King Vaisravana) and the Five Dzambhalas, he gave him the instruction as mentioned in the Tantric Buddhist Scripture book he read, to chant the mantras of the three of the Four Heavenly Kings three times, and chant the mantra of King Vaisravana 49 times, and each of the mantra of the Five Dzambhalas 108 times.

The Sangha member followed the instruction and the rest soon became history. To this day, that Sangha member remains to be one of the wealthiest famous people in Singapore. Throughout all these years he continues to wear the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet.

Vaisravana Dzambhala Wealth Amulet

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.

I’m sharing this with you because Guru Lama, after long contemplation, which started early this year, has decided to make this amulet available to the public. The Vajrapani Ruel is almost running out, meaning there are only a few pieces left, and Guru Lama felt that in these uncertain times, especially with the extreme financial stability or volatility, we can all use some help from this powerful amulet called Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet. 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.

Before it is sealed it is furthered consecrated on the image of The Four Heavenly Kings.

Like any other amulets, the stipulated donation for this amulet will go to the feeding of the monks, building of temples, or making an image of a Buddha or a Bodhisattva. To understand further on acquiring an amulet, I suggest you read the post – The Evolution of Acquiring An Amulet.

A Different Kind of Haunting!

Published Marso 16, 2017 by jptan2012

Generally speaking, an average person is definitely afraid of a living in a haunted place. Who wouldn’t be? It is definitely scary to see doors or cabinets opening or closing by themselves, or showers opening on its own, or toilets flushing on its own. Furthermore, you wouldn’t want lights turning on and off by themselves, or worst, you hearing moaning, crying, or laughing. To top it off, most us won’t be able to bear to see spirits or hungry ghosts. I think it would be such a frightful experience to wake up and see a lady or a being at the foot of your bed staring at you. These are quite frightening experiences.

However, what is even more frightening if we come across with a sinister insidious spirit. And what’s even scarier is that this is more common that most people realize.

My Guru Lama and I are currently in the process of helping a guy get rid of an insidious sinister spirit, not only in his house but also in his village. This is perhaps one of the scariest incidents brought to my attention. However, since this is still a ‘work in progress’ I will not tell you about it now.

But as I said this more common that we realized and today allow me to share with you the story of Camala.

Camala is a 34 – years – old housewife with three children. Two boys who are twins and who at the time when this happened was 13 years – old and a daughter who when this happened was only 10 – years – old. Camala is married to David who at the time that this happened was 40 – years – old. He is 6 years older than Camala.

Camala and David used to live with David’s parents, until one time, Camala’s cousin to sell their house. When Camala found out about this, she was naturally interested to get it since she and David was already planning to get their own house and they have already saved enough money to get their own house. The fact that her cousin’s place was near David’s parent house and her parent’s house and the school of her children was a bonus because he still want to be near both their parent’s (Camala’s parent and David’s parents) not only because they can help look after their children, but also because both she and David can also look after their parents.

There is only one problem. Camala’s mother opposes the idea of Camala and David buying the house of Camala’s cousin from her father side. The mother believes that it is not a good house because she believes that it was a problematic house because when Camala’s aunt and uncle moved into that house, they separated, the kids (Camala’s cousins) started fighting with each other. In the end, one of them died of a drug overdose, one went to jail because of homicide, and the two remaining one are not talking to each other because of a fight about inheritance. Note that all these happened gradually in the span of several years.

However, Camala is not superstitious and doesn’t believe in bad luck. And so she bought the house and invited a famous commercial Feng Shui expert to Feng Shui their house to appease her mother, and she literally followed everything the Feng Shui suggested. And so soon her whole family moved into the house. David’s mother also requested their long time house help to move and serve Camala’s family so Camala will not have a hard time. Everything is, as Camala and David want it to be.

Soon, even Camala’s mother started to believe that there is nothing to her initial fears that the house is bad luck, because everything seems to be fine. The gradually, the twins start to fight a lot, with their younger sister taking the side of one of the twin. They attributed this to the fact that they’re growing children.

Then the house help who have been serving David’s family for a long time started to show an aggression towards the Camala’s family. She ended up stealing some of Camala’s money and jewelries and ran away. She has been serving David’s family for more than 15 years! This naturally came as a total surprise to their family and as a great shock. More than that they were really emotionally hurt for they treated her as a member of the family. In fact, Camala’s children call her Lola (Grandma).

Then Camala started becoming paranoid, this was all gradual and didn’t happen overnight. She started accusing all the other house help of stealing things and poisoning her family. Then Camala and her mother – in – law who usually goes to their house to help oversee the kids had a big fight! They never had a fight in all the years they were leaving together!

Camala’s husband started to stay out late, and there are times that he would even go out of town with his friends on weekend while he used to love to stay at home with his family. At one point he said that it seems like the people in the house doesn’t like him, and that he feels unwelcome in his own home. Naturally this took a strain in their relationship not only as the husband of Camala, but also as the father of their kids.

The breaking point is when the twins had a big fight, and then in the course of the fight, which became physical they accidentally pushed the youngest down the stairs. She had to be hospitalized for a few days.

This is when Camala’s mother decided to get in touch with me thinking that the Feng Shui of the house is wrong. She said she is a regular reader of my blog.

And so after about a month of coordinating I finally got to see Camala’s place. There was some Feng Shui blunders but nothing that would explain the intensity of the things that they are experiencing. Looking at their Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart also shows no significant reason as to why they are experiencing what they are going through.

However, what I noticed is that while I was there, although I’m not psychic there is different sensation. A sadness, disturbed feeling that I can’t describe. I knew then that this is the case that I should bring to the attention of my Guru Lama.

Without taking the history of the house, my Guru Lama said that the house is haunted by negative entities that manifest their hauntings in a more sinister and insidious way. The people of that house won’t see the spirits or feel them in a way one normally feels the spirits, but instead they have a way of affecting in a negative way the mental and physical health of a person. They become negative people and they have negative personalities!

So how do we exorcise or deal with this kind of haunting? How do we get rid of the spirits?

Guru Lama clarified that the curing will not be easy, but he suggested a Vajrapani Ruel(1), a Surangama Mantra Amulet(1) and Traditional Sutra Amulet(1), plus a special amulet to be placed in the house. At that time the Traditional Sutra Amulet(2) was not yet readily available and so Guru Lama had to specially source a copy for Camala.

That was in 2014. Now Camala and David are back to their good life, maybe even better, before they experience the different kind of haunting, a sinister and insidious type of haunting.

The Curse of the Blue Roof!

Published Marso 11, 2017 by jptan2012

Today, allow me to share with you a story that happened a few years ago. My cousin who regularly consults me bought a property where he built a house. He and his wife regularly consult me about their house, and we would discuss everything with their contractor (architect, engineer, and interior designer). Of course, I went to see the place before they started building and while building it. However, I was not able to go there anymore when they finished the house and also when they moved in and has a house warming and a blessing.

Soon they started to have financial problem, and being familiar with their chart, I know that the problem is not in their chart. I even to their office but everything seem to be in order, which is aside from some minor blunders that is not strong enough to cause their financial or money problems.

Even without verbalizing it, during our conversation was sort of blaming me for their bad luck and wanted to know whether I could have made a mistake. Seriously speaking, I was also beginning to doubt myself.

Soon they looked for another Feng Shui expert who also checked out their place. She pointed out several ‘problems’, which can only be cured if they get cures from her.

Out of desperation, I volunteered to go to their place and check it out again. They said they followed everything I told them down to the last detail. And so I went, and to be honest, when I can’t see any blunder for indeed they seemed to have followed everything I told them to, I was already feeling insecure that I could have made a mistake.

My cousin even showed me that they put a crystal on their roof, and that’s when I saw the mistake! I told them that they should have a green roof. But what they have is technically green, but aqua green! This is also the first time that he noticed that it was not pure green but rather light blue green. It resembles the color of pool. Right there and then he called up his contractor who admitted that that he decided to use a different shade of green only because he ran out of stock. He didn’t thought that it would matter and make a lot of difference.

Told my cousin to replace it and make their roof real green not aqua green! He did, and soon they got back their loss, and were able to invest in another property shorty.

Why did the aqua green cause so much trouble? Because it is totally not advisable, regardless of your Bazi Chart and elements, to have a blue or black roof and/or a blue and black wall! Too much black or blue which represents water that generally represents money will make it more of an aspirational thing and will make it harder to attain them.

Dogs Barking or Howling At Walls: What It Means and How to Deal With It?

Published Nobyembre 30, 2016 by jptan2012

dogs-barkingRegular readers of this blog knows that I’m a firm believer of how a pet dog and help increase your good chi and bring in good luck, as long as one takes care of them properly and truly loves them.

I have a friend who called me up the other day, apparently his dogs are barking at his ‘wall’. Sometimes they howl. They seem to be seeing something that he is not seeing and he finds it creepy.

Dogs are naturally more sensitive in seeing or feeling unseen beings, and they may be seeing entities that we are not seeing. The manifestation usually comes in the form of them barking at the wall or at an empty space and they seem to be seeing something which we don’t see. Or it could be a howling. Sometimes they can be chasing something or seemingly being chased by something. Or they can be spooked and hide or seemingly growling at something. If these things happen, chances are they are seeing an entity or at the very least be feeling an entity.

When these things happen, first recognize the attitude of the dog. If they seems happy or relax chances are they’re seeing something of a positive or neutral entity. But if they seem spook or angry this is an indication that it is a negative entity. This is the case of my friend’s dogs.

If it’s a positive or neutral entity, just ignore them and they will soon go away. But if it’s a negative entity, it will be good if you as an expert to exorcise or like in the case of my friend, he got a Vajrapani Ruel and a Traditional Sutra Amulet (THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA) and a day after that aggressive barking at the ‘walls’ cease.

I would like to caution though that howling doesn’t really mean the presence of negative entities, some dogs are really just howlers like the Alaskan Malamute and Siberian Husky. Or sometimes they might be hearing a sound, because they have sensitive ears, that makes them howl. Like my dog back when we were still in our old house, we can tell if the Selecta ice cream man is about to pass by even before we hear his distinct music, because our dogs will already howl, and they won’ stop until the Selecta ice cream man pass by.

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!

Financial Blessing, Recuperation of Career, Academic Excellence, Justice for Maltreatment of School Officials – A Family Received Several Miracles: A Vajrapani Ruel and Ing Deng Pay Miraculous Personal Testimonies!

Published Marso 1, 2016 by jptan2012

“I will not call you again unless I have some good news!”

That’s what a reader told me a few months back, that was after she got a few pieces of Vajrapani Ruel and an Ing Deng Pay.

“Please share my story and please put our name on your post! I don’t care whether people get to know me I’m just happy and I want the wonderful blessing that my family received shared!” Lourdes Serafico shared with me a week or two ago, when after getting the Vajrapani Ruel and Ing Deng Pay and promising that she won’t call me back unless there’s good news or unless good things has happened to her family. She called back, which means there is some good news. And so I’m sharing it with you now.

Before I share with you her wonderful story, I know that if you are a regular reader of this blog that this is the first time I’m writing down the name of a reader without using initials. I really had to think about this carefully whether I should be doing this, because I always value my reader’s privacy and I don’t want to appear that I’m using them to promote this blog. I know I have taken a lot of criticisms by trying to hide the real name of my readers who have some personal miraculous stories to share. Some people went as far as saying that the stories are not real, although I must say if that accusation were true then you should still credit me for being a creative writer, and obviously I’m not a creative writer. There are still a lot of grammatical errors.

Anyway, why do I have to break that rule now? One, because hiding her real name now is useless because I intend to include her story in my upcoming book and there she would be named also as well as other readers who agreed to be named. Second, Lourdes herself insisted that I write down her family’s name, I don’t know whether she has read about the criticisms and attacks made about me, but I have a feeling that in a way, by insisting that I include her family’s name, she was really doing me a favor. And so after much thought I decided to write her full name but have decided to take out the name of her daughter who is going to be prominently featured in this post because she is still a minor and I also decided not to include the name of her husband who is also featured prominently in this post because he deals with a lot of international businessman.

Going back to the story of Lourdes, she first contacted me about a couple of years ago. According to her she has been a silent follower and reader of my blog, until I wrote about the post entitled – DON’T CREATE YIN ENERGY WITH YOUR DEAD PET’S BODY! – She was quite frantic because in her yard she did buried several of her dog’s body. That was the primary reason she called me, she believes that because of burying the dogs body within her yard they created a lot of negative energies and that started the ‘nose diving’ of her husband’s professional career. Furthermore, around that time also started the problem of her youngest daughter’s problems in school. I have written about my visit to their house in a post called – ADOPTED ABANDONED DOGS ARE SAVING THEIR HUMANS!

I really don’t know why I didn’t put the whole story back then, but there must be a reason that I can’t remember now. But reading the said post made me realized that I have written somewhat of a ‘short’ version of their story and decided to focus instead on how the abandoned dogs that they are saved in return were saving them. But to briefly put the whole story, by burying the dead body of the dogs within their yard created a lot of yin energy of their family, but more than that they also had several Feng Shui blunders. Primarily all their doors are ‘Yin Dragon Door’, please read the post – ADOPTED ABANDONED DOGS ARE SAVING THEIR HUMANS! – to understand more about it.

Basically what happened was life was good for them, AS (Lourdes’ husband) has a very good professional life, their children were all doing great in school, and they were building their new home. They hired a Feng Shui to build their new home, and this particular Feng Shui consultant suggested that they make a ‘dragon door’. Briefly speaking, ‘dragon doors’ are doors made diagonally with a special calculation to bring in tremendous amount of luck, which is called ‘dragon luck’. There are a lot of these kinds of doors in old Singapore structures that is believed to have brought in a lot of luck not only to the owners of these establishments or houses but to the country as well. However, the danger of making a ‘dragon door’ is that your calculations has to be précised, a single millimeter mistake will make the ‘dragon door’ into a ‘yin dragon door’ and if a ‘dragon door’ brings in dragon luck or tremendous amount of luck, a ‘yin dragon door’ will bring in tremendous amount of bad luck! I was actually surprised that their Feng Shui consultant recommended this because I know that only a handful of real grand masters know of this formula. I myself never suggested making a ‘dragon door’ because of the strict calculations involve. To be completely honest, when they mentioned the name of their Feng Shui, who happens to be quite famous, I was taken aback a little because I’m quite sure that this particular Feng Shui consultant is not familiar with the formula of making the ‘dragon door’, and even if this Feng Shui consultant is familiar with the formula, the making of the door should be closely monitored by the Feng Shui expert or consultant, something that didn’t happen in this situation because when the said Feng Shui consultant never followed on them again when the agreed fees was received. According to Lourdes, they did try to call the Feng Shui consultant again and again but to no avail.

Because of the said several Feng Shui blunders their luck took a turn from good to really bad. As mentioned earlier, AS’s career took a nosedive and that includes the financial luck that comes with having a good career. Furthermore, Lourdes’ youngest daughter who is quite a genius became problematic in school. Her daughter is excelling both in academic and other activities. She plays the several musical instruments and participates in several extra – curricular activities. However, at about the same time she fell from grace from the nuns who runs her school. I won’t be able to go into details because I don’t want to tell a story of which I don’t remember all the facts, but according to Lourdes, there was one time the nuns who run the Catholic college requested for a donation amounting to Php 100,000.00. The Serafico’s refused to make the said donation and curiously it also started the rounds of complaints from the nuns about their daughter. Several of these complaints are unfounded while some are subject to misinterpretation. To give you an example, being an intelligent child, their daughter would normally reason out to the nuns when they ever will call her attention to something that they think she did. For the nuns this is not a reasoning of an intelligent independent child who refuses to be wrongly accused, but rather it is being disrespectful. Lourdes tried to fix things properly, but it was quite obvious that the nuns are really just angry with her daughter. Some of the teachers and some nuns took their side but the powerful ones got really angry with her. It became so bad that the Serafico’s filed a case against the nuns. However, the Serafico’s believe that it was quashed using ‘money’.

At that time all these are happening, I suggested that the only cure they have for their ‘yin dragon door’ is to fix it and make a proper door (but this would cost a lot) or use gold Kalachakra to fix it. The Vajrapani Ruel was not yet available at that time. They were unable to fix the problem because rebuilding the door will require lots of money and not to mention they will have to make major renovations to their (at that time) unfinished house because of the financial problem that hit them. When the Vajrapani Ruel became available they got the Vajrapani Ruel, which was immediately followed by the Ing Deng Pay or Landlord’s Tablet. Please click here to know more about the Ing Deng Pay. That was several months ago and at that time Lourdes told me, “I will not call you again unless I have some good news!” Meaning I don’t think she’ll talk to me ever again unless either the Vajrapani Ruel or Ing Deng Pay works. Together they cost quite a fortune.

But I was really happy that a week or two ago (at that time of this writing) Lourdes and I got to talk again and she relayed to me the good news.

First, although the case they filed didn’t push through because it was quashed and never saw the light of day, it caught the attention of a senator and this particular senator used it as an example in the law that he authored. I can’t be sure but because of this the school officials were called for an investigation in aid of legislation (again not sure whether I remember this bit of information right). Several of the nuns were called to report to Rome, again because of the case against their daughter. Enrollment in the said college went down not by a few percent but by more than 50%!

Vajrapani Ruel

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.

Second, their daughter was forced to transfer, and Lourdes and AS was initially afraid that their daughter will have a hard time adjusting in her new school. Not to mention they were initially wary of where to transfer her. However, their daughter’s former principal who is aware of what kind of policies the nuns run and who knows Lourdes’ daughter really well encouraged Lourdes to transfer her daughter to the school were she works now. Lourdes was happy of this development but there is one big hindrance, the new school is an international school and base they might not be able to afford the very premium enrollment and school fees. But when their daughter took the entrance exam she was also offered a 100% scholarship! The very first scholarship offered by the said school! Furthermore, her daughter is now every teacher’s favorite. Needless to say she still has academic excellence and also excel in different extra – curricular activities. Her new teachers only have good words for her and always hand picks her to join different competitions!

As for AS, he got a new job and is currently managing 250+ fleets or international ships! Recently, a businessman handpicked him to manage 50+ more ships or fleets, and this particular businessman wouldn’t want anybody else to manage his fleets except AS. Needless to say the more fleets he manages, the higher income he’ll get!

And so those are the reasons why after a few months I got to talk to Lourdes again.

I’m sure a lot of people will be asking which one really works? Is it the Vajrapani Ruel or the Ing Deng Pay? It’s quite hard to say but both are quite powerful and have a very high miracle rate. The reason I seldom write about the Ing Deng Pay or Landlord’s Tablet is because it is quite pricey which may be a hindrance for some people from availing it. But in the end it doesn’t really matter what worked because good news is good news. Let us not forget, I’m quite sure that Lourdes and AS also prayed a lot for the welfare of their family.

Clarifications on the Post About the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde

Published Hunyo 20, 2014 by jptan2012

I know that the information shared on this blog the other day about the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde entitled – WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE – & – PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE ILL EFFECTS OF THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE – can be a little overwhelming for a lot of you. Almost immediately I was bombarded by literally hundreds of emails, which I really haven’t read. On top of that, there were also an overwhelming number of sms that was sent to me, not to mention several phone calls.

I thought it is only appropriate to clarify something for everybody’s better understanding of the topic.

First, Mercury Retrograde is as mentioned a Western Astrology concept, I’m not an expert and I don’t have mastery of the said topic, however, I know it to be true because:

  1. I know that Western Astrology to be true. Before I dwelt on Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology, Western Astrology was my first interest. My personal bias is that Chinese Astrology is more accurate but it doesn’t change the fact that Western Astrology has some basis.
  2. Mercury Retrograde is a concept that I have read before. In fact, several years back. There are also some famous people who have claimed that they experienced Mercury Retrograde and that it has affected their relationship and work. Some of these people are Ronald Reagan, Cameron Mackintosh, Shirley Maclaine, etc.
  3. The few times I got to meet some reputable Astrologer, this is something that we’ve discussed. And they are all in agreement that this is true.
  4. Particularly this year, when June set in a lot of people have been complaining to me about their relationship problems and communication problems, which prompted me to do more research about this topic.
  5. I believe that it is stronger this year because of several factors that may affect it to become stronger. This is just theory and I didn’t included in the first two article because it is quite difficult for me to substantiate this, but the stronger Hungry Ghost Month this year might be making Mercury Retrograde stronger also.

Second, the stronger Hungry Ghost Month phenomenon is not something new. Although rare it has been known to happen. And it is different from what happened last year, because last year we had a triple whammy, but this year it is simply stronger Hungry Ghost Month that we have to deal with it, and because it is stronger, it also extends itself. As mentioned, I’ve consulted other Feng Shui experts, particularly my teachers; most of them agree that this is indeed the case. However, I would like to clarify that there is one particular Feng Shui expert that said that they (group that she works with) are not sure whether this is an interpretation concern. Meaning, they saw it but they seem to think that this is still subject to further discussion. They are drawing their unclear stand from the ‘Double Negative Theory’; this theory states that in some aspects of Feng Shui a double negative may be a positive sign.

Third, regarding the cures for the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde, I would like to reiterate that something is still way better than nothing at all.prayer

Lastly, we should not under estimate the power of a prayer. In fact, if you look at the suggested cure, a lot of it is drawing power or protection from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and sutras (Buddhist holy texts that are considered prayer books) and mantras, which is a form of praying. On top of this, I personally believe is also going to create some form of protection. Do good deeds, help people, help people you know, but more than that help people that you don’t know. Do something that is beyond what is JUST COMFORTABLE. The positive energy created by a very good deed is a very powerful protection, and remember a good deed is not measure by how many people you help or by how much you spent. A good deed is measured by sincerity, the amount of compassion you have, and how much of you was shared.

Protect Yourself from the Ill Effects of the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde

Published Hunyo 18, 2014 by jptan2012

In my previous post – WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE, I talked about how the combined effect of the annual and monthly flying stars and of the annual and monthly Bazi or Paht Chee are making this year’s Hungry Ghost Month so much stronger that its effects will be felt 15 days before the first day of the Hungry Ghost month which is on July 27, 2014 up to 15 days after its supposed last day which is August 24, 2014. This phenomenon is made worse with the last Mercury Retrograde periods of the year sandwiching this year’s Hungry Ghost month, leaving us with about 5 challenging months in succession.

At the start of the year, a lot of Feng Shui writers and consultants talked about how the first part of the year will show an abundance of luck for most people, and how towards the end of the year it will get depleted. This was obvious on the year’s Paht Chee chart; but nowhere was a definitive explanation of the cause discussed. It is actually only by accident that I came across a possible explanation. I believe the effects of both Mercury Retrograde and the particularly strong Hungry Ghost Month of the year occurring in succession explains why the energy of the year gets depleted towards the end of the year.

As mentioned in my previous blog post, as I wanted to validate my reading of the year’s annual and monthly flying stars and Paht Chee charts especially in relation to the year’s Hungry Ghost Month, I decided to call first my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong, and my Guru Lama in Singapore. Both of them confirmed the said phenomenon. After writing the previous blog post, and just before writing this one, I decided to call another Feng Shui teacher from Beijing, China, and he also confirmed the said phenomenon. Lastly, I was also able to discuss the matter with other Feng Shui consultants, who likewise acknowledged the phenomenon. Certain experts, however, are not sure whether they will be discussing it through any of their avenues because of two reasons: (1) they are not sure whether the effects are in fact going to be really bad (this goes into interpretations of the resulting calculations) and (2) if in fact the effects will be very bad, they are not sure whether remedies exist to successfully counter the effects.

In the course of writing this entry, I decided to call another Feng Shui teacher. This particular Feng Shui teacher practices Transcendental Feng Shui, which is also known as Spiritual or Third Dimension Feng Shui. Like the other Feng Shui experts that I consulted, he acknowledges the said phenomenon and like my Guru Lama he believes that we can do something about it.

Before I go into discussing how one can protect oneself from this phenomenon, let me explain that the recommendations below are an aggregation of the different recommendations that I gathered from my Guru Lama, Feng Shui teachers, and a few of my own recommendations based on my own experience. Also, it would be of course best if you follow all the recommendations; and, needless to state, following some is better than following none of them. I would also like to point out that it was a reader who since then has become a good friend, DU, who pointed out this direction of how to remedy this phenomenon.

Always have with you the following:

  1. Kuan Yin pendant, preferably with a sutra.
    This is from my personal collection. The reason I love this pendants so much is because it has a inscription of the Heart Sutra at the back. I wear the smaller one everyday.

    Back image of the Kuan Yin pendant. This is the reason why I love these pendants is because they have very nicely crafted image of Kuan Yin pouring healing and auspicious from her magical vase, and at the back it has the Heart Sutra. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to look for this kind of Kuan Yin pendant.

    Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to look for this kind of Kuan Yin pendant.

  2. Chong Kwei (also spelled as Chung Kwei) or Mahakala (a wrathful image of Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin) pendant. To be honest I’ve been looking for a Mahakala pendant and I’m unable to find one. For this year, according to my Guru Lama, Mahakala is preferred but no one can deny the efficacy of a Chong Kwei pendant during the Hungry Ghost month. Please take into consideration that he may be partial to Mahakala because he is a Buddhist Lama and Chong Kwei is of a Taoist lineage. Your Chong Kwei should be made of a black stone or gold.

    This is a rare black jade pendant image of Chung Kwei. Was fortunate enough to find one in Beijing, China in a small shop.  Remember in choosing a Chong Kwei or Chung Kwei or Zhung Kwei or Zhong Kwei, always get a something that's made of a black stone or gold. Otherwise, it might not be very effective.

  3. Kalachakra pendant, preferably made of gold or jade or clear quartz.
  4. Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva pendant.

    From my personal collection. A rare Red Amber Ksitigarbha.  Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to get a Ksitigarbha pendant unless you're from Malaysia, Hong Kong, or Singapore.

  5. Wear or carry a Prayer Wheel and spin it as often as you can.
  6. Medicine Buddha pendant or simply carry a Medicine Buddha sutra.
  7. Always carry a Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras or Lama Atisha Amulet with you at all times.

    I decided to put THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS inside a test tube type glass holder that I bought in The Bead Shop, then I included the incense ash, Pink Himalayan Salt inside before sealing it. Thank you to DU, a reader and friend who took this photo.

At home and in the office you should have the following:

  1. Figurine of Kuan Yin.
  2. Figurine of Mahakala or Chong Kwei.

    This is an image of a Mahakala, the wrathful form of Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin. Wrathful form doesn't mean that they are really angry, it means that they are largely use for protection.  This photo was uploaded from Google images.

  3. Figurine of Medicine Buddha or Kuan Kong. These two are optional.
  4. Figurine of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva. It may be pretty difficult to get a figurine of Ksitgarbha Bodhisattva. What you can do instead is print his image, laminate it and put it on your altar. If you don’t have an altar, put them where the other images are.

    In looking for an image of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva either as a pendant or a figurine for your home, you will come across with two versions, the one with the 'Amitabha' hat and the one where He is not wearing any hat and shows his bald head. I prefer the one with the hat, because the one where He is bald is usually associated with the spirits of the dead and connotes that he hasn't attain His Buddhahood.

  5. Put Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras or Lama Atisha Amulet on all the doors and windows of your house that are facing the perimeter of your house (living quarters). If you find it difficult to find these, then the second best option would be to use Kalachakra stickers.
  6. Put a small bowl of rock salt in all the rooms of your house.
  7. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: FIX ALL THE FENG SHUI ERRORS OF YOUR HOUSE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE THE YIN EFFECTS OF ALL THESE FENG SHUI ERRORS ARE MULTIPLIED.
  8. Play mantras in all the rooms if possible.

 

Do the following ‘rituals’:

  1. From July 12, 2014 to Sept. 8, 2014, chant, DAILY, 10 full malas of OM MANI PADME HUM, 10 full malas of the Medicine Buddha Mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA, and 100 full malas of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s mantra. He has several and you can choose which of the following are you more comfortable with:
    1. OM PRA MANI DANI SOHA
    2. OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM
    3. NAMO DI ZHANG WANG PUSA
    4. NAMO KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA
  2. Recite both the Wish Fulfilling and Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra.
  3. Do the usual rituals for the Hungry Ghost Month that I’ve written about in the past.
  4. Try to make offerings at the temple or church or give to charity as often as you can.
  5. In reciting the mantra of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, it will be better if you gaze upon his image.
  6. Light some incense and read the following sutras as often as you can – MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA and KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA SUTRA, which is known as THE SUTRA OF PAST VOWS OF THE EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA. The sutra of the Medicine Buddha is in a blog post that I wrote about Him. Please see link below. If you want a downloadable PDF file of the Sutra of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, please click Earth Store Bodhisattva and KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA SUTRA. The two versions are basically the same but slightly differ in the way it was translated. One of the difference is that in one of them Shakyamuni Buddha is simply called Buddha, which is is the more common term in addressing Shakyamuni Buddha is most of the Sutra translations. This is because it is widely accepted that all sutras that we have now are from the time of Shakyamuni Buddha. A sutra is basically a prayer and word of Buddha written in a story or conversation format.
  7. Avoid the usual things that one should avoid during the Hungry Ghost Month.

For the Mercury Retrograde periods (June 7- July 1; October 4 – 25), wear an image of Kuan Kong or Kalachakra, and if possible, wear or carry with you a Prayer Wheel and spin it as often as you can.

Optional for July 12 to Sept. 8 is also to wear the script of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra.

There are a lot of things mentioned on this post that for some might be hard to understand. For example what really is Hungry Ghost Month, which I didn’t discuss in detail in these 2 posts about the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month, or about Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras, etc. I humbly suggest for you to read some of my previous posts to make you understand things that were discussed here better, or why were such items recommended as a cure.

What Everyone Needs to Know About the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde

Published Hunyo 18, 2014 by jptan2012

This is perhaps the most important article that I’ll post on this blog for this year and I thank DU for helping me out with this article. Indeed this is the first time I’ve consulted another Feng Shui enthusiast before posting an article.

Lately, I have been receiving a lot of calls, text messages, and emails from people going through a lot of ‘turmoil’ in their life. A lot of them have something to do with relationships, both personal and professional. Also, a number of these people seem to be going through some form of a low life chi: they have started feeling down, feeling low, battling an inner turmoil, and/or getting depressed! Noticeably, a lot of the concerns have something to do with communications.

I believe all the above things I mentioned above are caused by Mercury Retrograde. I’m familiar with the concept of Mercury Retrograde, although it’s a concept of Western Astrology, rather than Feng Shui or Chinese Astrology. I know that whenever Mercury Retrograde occurs, a lot of negative things happen. As I said, I’m only familiar with it but I’m not an expert and do not have mastery of the said topic.

However, based on the site About Astrology, Mercury Retrograde happens 3 to 4 times a year. It is called Mercury Retrograde because the planet Mercury slows down its movement and gives off the illusion that it has stopped moving or has moved backward thus the term “RETROGRADE”.

From what I gather, although there a lot of “negative things” that may happen, Mercury Retrograde is not all bad.

If you wish to understand the concept of Mercury Retrograde better, you can visit the site http://www.astrology.about.com and read for yourself what Mercury Retrograde is all about. For convenience, however, allow me to provide some excerpts from the article written by Molly Hall.

Mercury Madness?:

Mercury is the messenger, and in this time, the delivery is warped or the message gets lost en route. Some people find that their computers go on the fritz or phone lines go down. If you’re at all jittery about it, go ahead and back up your important files.

There can be delays, so give yourself plenty of time to get places. What happens in those down times? Mercury retro is known to be a time of ‘fated’ events — who will you meet? What will be revealed?

A Time-Out:

Mercury retrograde gives us time to catch up with ourselves, and reflect. Something from the past returns in a different form. People, ideas or buried insights that are keys to moving forward, float to the surface. Often it’s felt as a slowed down, contemplative time, and depending on the sign, a chance to go over old ground again, to claim what you missed the first time.

Err on Side of Caution:

There’s a long-held belief that it’s best to avoid making set plans during the Mercury Retrograde. This means holding off on signing contracts, and forming partnerships and alliances. What gets put in writing at this time may turn out to need serious revising after Mercury goes direct. But since tying up loose ends is the domain of retrograde, this type of finalization might fly.

Can you repeat that?:

In our relationships, sometimes we gloss over things that pushed buttons at the time, but which we let slide. What seemed not worth the trouble may reveal itself as a major issue in need of our attention. The Mercury retrograde is a time for review, when the underlying patterns come to light.

Back to the Drawing Board:

Some dreams and goals get lost in the hectic rushing around of daily life. The Mercury Retrograde period can be a rich time of reflection on those longings. This makes it a time for the soul to ponder its destiny. You might look over old journals, review your creative work, muse on serendipities of the past that have pointed you toward your spirit’s calling. It can make the retrograde period a time of solidifying a sense of your personal story and where you’re headed.

What does it mean in each different sign?:

The Mercury retrograde is shaped by the sign through which it is cast. For example, a Mercury retrograde in Cancer turns the mind toward things like family, home and the invisible emotional bonds that connect us. On the other hand, a Mercury retrograde in Aquarius gives it a different spin, with a review of group dynamics, the larger human community, all from a detached perspective.

Making the Most of Mercury Retrograde:

A major cause of stress at Mercury retrograde is frustration from mishaps, things breaking down, computers going black. But if we know it’s cycle, this makes it feel less terminal. If things go pear-shaped, see what’s there to see. Take a break from the usual routine.

Just observe and see what happens, and be open to the past returning for review. If it’s coming back, there’s likely something more to learn or release from it. This can be a good (and productive) time, in its own way.

 

What is clear from the article is that although it can be a challenging time for us, and a local astrologer told me that Mercury Retrograde will definitely affect 30% to 50% of the world’s population in a negative way, depending on how we act on it it can still be a good time for us.

But why am I writing about Mercury Retrograde? Admittedly, I was bothered since it appears that people are really affected by it considering the rather alarming number of emails, text messages, and calls that I’ve received. This in turn prompted me to do more research about it and study its possible relation to Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology, if any.

My research and study about its possible relation to Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology led me to ‘discover’ something else about this year’s Hungry Ghost Month. For regular readers of this blog, chances are you’re familiar with the Hungry Ghost Month because this is a topic that I’ve always written about in the past years. For those who are not familiar with it, please read my posts about them. To put it simply, the Hungry Ghost month, which happens on the 7th lunar month of the year, is a month where the hungry ghosts are released so that they can eat. It is believed to be a very bad and dangerous month and most Chinese will avoid going to hospitals and cemeteries during this month. Most Chinese will also avoid signing contracts, traveling, making major decisions, moving houses, getting medical treatment during the Hungry Ghost Month.

Anyway, what I discovered is that this year’s Hungry Ghost month may unfortunately be a lot worse than is normally the case; and this is saying a lot because the Hungry Ghost month is already bad as it is. Before I discuss more about this discovery, let me just point out certain observations regarding the dates of occurrences of Mercury Retrograde and the Hungry Ghost Month for this year.

The second Mercury Retrograde period started June 7 of this year and it will end on the 1st of July. The third period, and I think the last one for the year, is from October 4 to October 25. This year’s Hungry Ghost Month is from July 27 to August 24. You’ll notice that it has been sandwiched by two Mercury Retrograde periods, leaving at least about a month between the end of the second Mercury Retrograde period and the start of the Hungry Ghost Month and also a month between the end of the Hungry Ghost Month and the beginning of the third Mercury Retrograde period. However, this is where it becomes tricky. As mentioned, it is highly probable that this year’s Hungry Ghost Month is going to be more intense than the normal expected yearly Hungry Ghost month. This means that not only will there be a strong and powerful Hungry Ghost month, but also that its effect will be felt 15 days prior to July 27 and 15 days after August 24! Hence, it would appear that there will be a total of approximately 5 challenging months in succession from the second Mercury Retrograde period until the end of the third Mercury Retrograde period.

Returning to my discovery about this year’s Hungry Ghost Month, it is extremely difficult to write about what causes this phenomenon (of the Month being a particularly intense one) because a lot of it will involve explaining several technical terms about the annual flying stars and the monthly flying stars, as well as their relation to the annual Bazi or Paht Chee, again coupled with the Monthly Bazi or Paht Chee! Needless to say, the resulting calculations got me a little worried. I decided that before I start writing about this and cautioning people about it, I’d get confirmation from my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and my Guru Lama in Singapore.

Both of them confirmed this phenomenon although both claimed that this is rare. In fact, my Guru Lama said that this is only the second time he is encountering this situation and he is 78 years old! From the perspective of those who strictly practice straight Feng Shui, there’s not much one can do about this, but in the practice of the Third Dimension, Transcendence, or Spiritual Feng Shui, there’s something that can be done. This relieved me somewhat since a particularly intense Hungry Ghost Month could multiply the effects of the bad Feng Shui of your house, your bad personal Feng Shui, or any negative chi that is brought about by your karma, Paht Chee, or Feng Shui blunders.

During the Hungry Ghost Month, don’t be surprised if big projects might suddenly go awry. It is highly recommended that you finish 15 days prior to July 27 all critical matters that you have to attend to. Also, it would greatly help if you fix all the Feng Shui errors that you know of in your house. Additionally, all of us must carefully watch our health and be wary about going out in the evening.

I admit that I hesitated to write this post because I don’t want to be scaring people. However, I also wanted people to know about these matters because I believe them to be important. This made me look into possible remedies because without these, there would be not much point to sharing the information. In view of these thoughts, I decided to talk to certain people. This is the first time I consulted several people before posting something. One of them is a reader who bought the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant, and has since then become a very good friend. DU, whom I’ve written about, is the person who pointed me to the right direction. My Feng Shui teacher from Hong Kong, who strictly practices straight Feng Shui, felt that there is nothing we can do about this phenomenon. DU refused to believe this and mentioned that mantras should be able to help. This prompted me to call my Guru Lama in Singapore and he did share with me some possible remedies. I consulted people because while the threat of this phenomenon of having an extra strong Hungry Ghost month (sandwiched by 2 Mercury Retrograde periods at that) is I believe a very serious matter, I don’t want to be simply a doomsday prophet.

Again, as I always say, what’s the importance of knowing something if one can’t prevent it from happening or at the very least if one can’t have a remedy against it. While people who are into straight Feng Shui believe that there’s nothing we can do about this, those who practice the Transcendence/Spiritual/Third Dimension of Feng Shui believe that there are some things that we can do to protect us from the ill effects of this phenomenon.

On my next post called PROTECTING OURSELVES FROM THE ILL EFFECTS OF THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE, you’ll get to read on how we can prepare for the ill effects of the phenomenon mentioned on this particular post.

FIRST, THE RAT…

Will generally have a good year. You’ll find that your career will be great and you will be quite successful. Wealth luck might be good also. I say might, because while you have the potential to have this luck, it might be dampen a little by the Black Sky Star, which is found through the use of the Purple Flower Star Astrology or Purple Star Astrology. Nevertheless, this year you’ll find yourself surrounded by helpful people and it’s up to you to utilize them.

However, you’ll also find yourself a little overwhelmed with the possible work ahead of you. Remember you can only get your wealth luck if you work for it and being swallowed by the task ahead will set you back.

You have to be careful though with your health luck. This is also due to the presence of the Black Sky Star. While this won’t bring about any serious illness, having this star might set you back a little because of a bad cold or a fever.

When it comes to relationships, this is quite a bad year for both the single and partnered rat.

The Black Sky Star is further aggravated by the two clashing pillars of the year.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of a Protective God (Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (Guan Gong) or Amitabha Buddha) to protect yourself from the Black Sky Star.

Amitabha Buddha is a very powerful protector Buddha.

Amitabha Buddha is a very powerful protector Buddha.

Wear or carry an image the Victory Banner.

Wear a Holy Gourd or a Medicine Buddha Pendant, preferably with Mantra.

Carry or wear the Double Happiness symbol.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

SECOND, THE OX…

Will have a very good year for both personal and professional life. Your life palace shows that you have the Wealth Star and this means that money will easily come to you this year. However, note that you have the tendency to get into a lot of argument, so just simply watch out for that. This is further strengthened by the Excellent Seal Star, which is shown by using the Purple Flower Star Astrology.

The Ox born in 1973 should watch out for the Snake born in September of 1965. For some reason, which started last year, the two signs, which are normally friendly to each other, will find themselves clashing. The Ox seems to be at the loosing end, but the Snake seems to be at the wrong. However, this is not generalizing but seems to be what is indicated in the chart. While this particularly true between the Ox born in the year 1973 and Snake born in the year 1965 with focus on the month of September, all Ox born people must be careful in getting into arguments which might lead to a long term disagreement or fight.

The Purple Star Astrology shows that there are a number of minor namely the Goat Horn Star and the Brown Flag Star, which might cause some accidents and/or aggravate the possibility of an argument.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear as a pendant an image of the Wealth Deity/God like Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong. This is if you want to further enhance your wealth luck. They will also act as a protector from the effects of the Goat Horn Star and the Brown Flag Star.

Wear or carry the Ksitigarbha Fireball.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.
