A Quick Post About the Things to Avoid During the Hungry Ghost Month!

Published Agosto 28, 2017 by jptan2012

Some of these things I have written in the past, some maybe just now. But allow me to quickly share a few things that one should avoid doing during the Hungry Ghost Month (Ghost Month) especially the Hungry Ghost Festival (Ghost Festival) which for this 2017 is on September 5.

Things to avoid:

  1. Avoid disturbing around and under the altar because the hungry ghosts loves to dwell around those areas because they want the yang energy.
  2. Avoid disturbing the kitchen or dining area or even the market or anywhere where there is food. Hungry Ghosts crave for food and so they might be in those areas.
  3. Do not put new fish tanks or aquarium in your house, because this might enhance the yin energy that is already pervasive during the ghost month.
  4. Do not hand wind chimes. Contrary to popular Feng Shui belief, there are a number of non – commercialized, traditional Feng Shui masters and Feng Shui experts who doesn’t believe in the use of wind chimes because a wind chime attracts spirits. I also subscribe to this belief They attract both good and bad spirits, so how can you siphon the good from the bad?
  5. Do not leave red cloths or red strings lying around the house? Red has one of the strongest yang energy and hungry ghosts will naturally crave for them.
  6. Avoid whistling especially after dark. Same principle with the wind chime, they may get attracted with the sound and they might latch on to you.
  7. Avoid properly putting any footwear beside your bed, always turn the footwear away from the bed or turn one of them over. Properly placed footwear may attract spirits to you.
  8. Do not hang your clothes overnight. Hungry Ghosts are not just hungry, they also lack clothes, while they don’t need it, they might feel that they need one because they still long for their human body. Hanging it overnight might lead them to ‘try it’ and it will cause extreme bad luck or even some hauntings.
  9. Do not pick up money on the streets or on the floor if you don’t know who owns them. Even if they’re just coins. A spirit might have latched on to it already and you will bring them with you.
  10. Do not look back if you hear a ‘pssst’ or if you hear somebody calls you in an empty space or street.

I also received some emails and questions as to what one can do if one really has to undergo a medical procedure this ghost month. I have written about this before and you can check it out by clicking here. However, please note to try to avoid this and if this is not possible, for major operations, or for medical procedure, which may be considered routine but involves senior citizens or children below 7 years of age, it is best to have the Vajrapani Ruel and/or a gold Kalachakra pendant.

The Bazi Is Never Linear!

Published Oktubre 19, 2016 by jptan2012

One of the most common questions I usually get is whether Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart of a person determines the luck or life of person as if it is set in stone.

After more than 700 articles, it is quite difficult to determine whether this is something that I have written or even simply mentioned before. But I believe it is worth writing about it now given that this is the most common question that I received from my readers and even friends.

The Bazi or Paht Chee is determined by getting the exact birthdate of a person, from it people who knows how to compute a Bazi will be able to determine what kind of life a person has or will have. Please note though that being familiar with Feng Shui doesn’t necessarily mean that one is also familiar with the Paht Chee, it is something much more difficult to learn. But for one to be able to do personal Feng Shui really well, one has to analyze the Bazi of a person.

One of the earliest article that I have written about is clarifying that our luck consists of mainly three things, and they are: HEAVEN’S LUCK, EARTH’S LUCK, and MAN’S LUCK.

Heaven’s Luck is basically determined by our birthdate or Paht Chee. This is who are our parents, siblings, where we are born, when we are born, personality and character. This is something that is basically what life has thrown to us. This is also basically karma.

Earth’s Luck is basically Feng Shui.

Man’s Luck is basically what we do with what is thrown to us. This is us. How we handle things, how we work things out, how we react to things.

If you’ll notice, Man’s Luck is in a way still dependent on Heaven’s Luck in a way that our personality is determined by Heaven’s Luck. But at the same time, these are the things that we can control. For example, you can be born in a poor family, but if you strive hard you might have a better life. True it might be more difficult for you but it certainly is not impossible.

Sometimes, these lucks mix. For example, I always say that the first line of defense is maintaining a positive outlook in life. When we consciously do that, that is man’s luck, the effect is Earth’s Luck.

Feng Shui is Earth’s Luck that needless to say also has an effect on Man’s Luck.

Displaying an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deities or Gods is made with a conscious effort by man, so in a way it is Man’s Luck. Then using as a cure it becomes Earth’s Luck but the help that comes in is basically Heaven’s Luck.

Using an amulet is also basically a combination of all three, although is predominantly Heaven’s Luck followed by Earth’s Luck.

Going back to the question whether a Bazi or Paht Chee is set in stone, and using the above argument, it becomes clear that it is not. However, things indicated in the Bazi or Paht Chee is never linear. It is not about a single path. There is one clear major path, but good Feng Shui students will tell you that there are minor paths.

Allow me to share with you the story about the mother of a reader. When I checked the chart of the mother, it shows that she will have an accident that may kill her. Most likely, it is man made accident, something violent and caused by a person with ill intent.

It is a strong indication in the chart meaning it is something that is surely will happen. This was confirmed both by my Feng Shui teacher and my Guru Lama. As a remedy, my reader got a Vajrapani Ruel and a gold Kalachakra pendant for her. Told them to be ready also because with the help of Feng Shui teacher we were able to narrow down the possible to within two weeks of the month September in 2015.

My reader’s mom, during daytime is usually left at home by herself. One day, her grandchild’s school was suspended, so it was an unusual day because somebody was with her in the house. This was in September. While the grandchild was playing he saw a man, or two men (he can’t be sure) (the grandchild was only 8 years old at that time) trying to break in to their house. Frightened he screamed for her grandma. Her grandma in a rush to go to her grandchild fell on the stairs and broke her leg.

What was indicated in her Bazi didn’t happen, at least not to the level it was indicated because with the Kalachakra and the Vajrapani Ruel, used as an Earth’s Luck interfere. The grandmother or mother of my reader still had to go through some accident, but not serious enough as indicated in her chart because she was protected.

Another story is about a man who according to his Bazi, which was reviewed by several Feng Shui masters – not less than 7 of them, indicates that he will grow up poor and as a meek employee all throughout his life, meaning he will never become a person of significance in the corporate world. Because of this his parents and later the guy himself did everything to turn this around. His parents started with Feng Shui (Earth’s Luck) and continuously plead the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas (Heaven’s Luck), and then when the man grew up, he continued to do both plus he worked really hard. Now the man lives a comfortable life.

So the answer is Bazi or Paht Chee is never linear.

Myth Buster 18: You’ll Have Bad Luck If Your Chinese Animal Zodiac is the Opposing Ruling Animal Zodiac of the Year

Published Disyembre 31, 2014 by jptan2012

The husband of DU, my friend and reader, asked DU whether he’ll have a difficult year in 2015 because he was born under the sign of the Ox, and for those who are familiar with Feng Shui they know that Ox in the Chinese Animal Zodiac chart is right across the Sheep, which makes the Ox an ‘opposing’ sign of the Sheep.

The animal adjacent to your particular animal sign is usually considered as the opposing sign. This is usually because you have character traits that are totally opposite each other. It'll be harder for you to get along. However, I believe that relationships are work on so I personally don't subscribe to this so much, but I do acknowledge that it can be a little bit harder. However, the belief that you are going to be bad luck if your sign is the opposing sign really stems out from the Chinese government's meddling with Feng Shui practice.

However, the belief that you are going to be bad luck if your sign is the opposing sign really stems out from the Chinese government’s meddling with Feng Shui practice.

This is a very common misconception, which stems out from two factors. One, although I always say that relationships are worked on, the truth is its more difficult for people with opposing sign to get along harmoniously. They have to work on the relationship harder. For example, Ox is going to be more difficult to get along with a Sheep, a Rat with a Horse, and Pig with a Snake, so on and so forth. Please refer to the image. So taking this into consideration a lot of people believe that if you have an opposing sign you’ll naturally have a bad year ahead of you. However, this is not always the case. In fact, my own analysis for the year shows that for this year, most Ox born people will still have a good year ahead of them. You can read my previous posts about the forecast for the year.


 


 

The second factor why this belief came about is because of the communism of China. Mao ZeDong and his successors like Deng XiaoPing, strictly banned the use of Feng Shui, in fact, Feng Shui masters and/or experts are sent to hard labor. But, belief in Feng Shui is ingrained amongst Chinese, so like Buddhism and Taoism, the Chinese government was unable to totally repress it. So when the government realized that they couldn’t eradicate Feng Shui in people’s lives, they decided to control it instead.

It is said that although officially he has banned Feng Shui, Mao Zedong himself has continuously employ the services of Feng Shui masters for himself and for top government officials. This practice has been followed by Deng Xiaoping and up to the present leaders of China.

Communist China did to Feng Shui what they did to religion. They can’t take away Buddhism, Taoism, and Catholicism is the country so they controlled it instead. Most of you know about the religions in China having the official and unofficial version. Depending on whom you ask, the Chinese government believes that they have the official version, and the official religions whose leaders are mostly abroad to avoid being kidnapped by the government and put into forced ‘vacation’, are considered the unofficial version. But elsewhere, outside Mainland China, obviously the official version is the Church ‘controlled’ (for the lack of term) religion, and the unofficial is the Chinese government controlled religion. The control is so strict that the government names their own bishops or archbishops, and in the case of Tibetan Buddhism they kidnapped the real Panchen Lama and installed their own Panchen Lama. The 11th Panchen Lama was kidnapped last May 17, 1995 together with his whole family. Nobody has seen them since and the Chinese government has installed a fake 11th Panchen Lama!

Going back to Feng Shui, although the government doesn’t allow Feng Shui experts or masters to continue doing Feng Shui, it is said that they continue to practice Feng Shui under strict control of the Chinese government. They’re only allowed to do Feng Shui for high-ranking officials of the government. As a result a lot of them sneak out and practiced Feng Shui in Hong Kong and Taiwan. For the general public, the Chinese government then gave licenses for ‘illegitimate’ Feng Shui masters to do Feng Shui for the people. Thus a lot of Feng Shui misconception has arise from these government – controlled Feng Shui masters.

A lot these government – controlled Feng Shui masters knows only some very basic rules about Feng Shui, thus they will say that if the ruling animal sign is your opposing sign then you’ll have bad luck, and they were also the ones who said that North is really bad.

They may be considered correct if that’s the only thing you should consider, but Feng Shui is not a simple formula of opposing and friendly signs, because Feng Shui is about animal signs, bazi/Paht Chee, elemental formula, 8 trigrams formula, flying stars, 24 mountains, Ho – Tu, auxiliary stars, and a lot more. All these formula should not be taken as a stand alone, they should be a combination and their relation to each other should be considered!

It’s true that if your sign is the opposing sign of the ruling sign of the year, in this case for 2015 the Ox is the opposing sign of the Sheep, and if you only consider that formula then the sure answer is you’ll have a bad year. However, I remember the FM radio DJ, Chico Garcia, saying on radio once that he was told that he will have a bad year because his sign is a conflicting (opposing) sign of the year but then Chico Garcia said it turn out to be one of the best year of his life. Why? Because that’s not the only thing that should be considered. You have to consider all the other formulas; all the other factors that’s need to be considered.

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

Dou Mu Yuan Jun or Goddess of the North Star is a powerful Deity to counter the effects of Tai Suey. She is said to be the creator of all the Tai Suey Gods does has the power to rule or control over them.

Of course, you have to remember but if you’re sign is the opposing sign of the year, then you’ll definitely face the God of the Year or Tai Sui (also spelled as Tai Suey) or Grand Duke Jupiter. This is easily addressed by wearing or carrying an image of a Piyao (also spelled as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu) that will help appease the Tai Suey. Wearing an image of the Goddess of the North Star or Dou Mu Yuan Jun is also a very effective cure because she is the mother of all the Tai Sui Gods and is said to be the only one who can subdue them.
