Whose Karma Is It When A Person Dies Young?

Published Mayo 15, 2017 by jptan2012

When my nephew died, my initial reaction was to ask where did we go wrong. The pain and grief that I felt, that we felt, has temporarily blind-sided us to the fact that we already know. When a person is born, he or she has about 2 or 3 pre – destined date of death. Sometimes less, sometimes more. This means that when he was born this accident and death was already pre-destined and what amulets can do is to lessen the impact and move the date to the next date.

Using the above explanation it shows that when a person dies it is basically his/her karma to die at that time. If a person dies young it is basically his or her karma to die young.

The karma of the people around him, like his parents or grandparents, uncles and aunties, cousins, siblings, or wife or children is to go through the pain of the death. This kind of karma is something that is pre-determined. It is not because you did something really bad today that you experience that pain tomorrow.

I’m writing this because aside from the numerous emails of condolence and sympathy for my family and me and the parents of my nephew are emails questioning whose karma is it the nephew died young. Two emails even suggested that it was the people around him who did something wrong in this life, in this current life, that caused the death of my nephew.

I will understand those who are asking because they sincerely can’t understand why would a young boy passed away at such an early age. But those who are malicious and are asking it because they think that because I do Feng Shui and write about Buddhist amulets that I should not be experiencing these things, those are the ones who are quite difficult to understand.

Nevertheless, to answer the question ‘Whose karma is it that he died young?’ The answer is simple; it was his and his alone. It was his karma from one of his past lives. But what I know by being malicious about somebody else’s death, and then you are creating negative karma for yourself. Be worried about that and not about whose karma is it the person dies young.

What To Do When You Always Have Miscommunication Problems With Your Boss?

Published Mayo 12, 2017 by jptan2012

I recently have a reader who emailed requesting for the Vajrapani Ruel(1). According to her she’s having problems with her boss. She clarified that her boss seems to be a nice person but they both always have miscommunication problems. He will interpret what she said in another way and vice versa. This has become such a burden for her that she really wants to leave her job but she the pay is good and her office is of a comfortable distance from her boss.

When I heard about this, I asked her why she thought of the Vajrapani Ruel(2). She said because she believes that the Vajrapani Ruel(3), which is considered as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon is the only thing that can save her from having the miscommunications problem.

Indeed the Vajrapani Ruel(4) is one of the most powerful amulets and it sure will help with her miscommunications problem. But miscommunication is not life and death situation and I think in her situation she doesn’t need the Vajrapani Ruel(5) or an amulet, but that a Feng Shui charm or Feng Shui cure will do for her. She just thinks her problem is so big and hopeless because this has been going on for a long time and this has caused her severe amount of stress.

The cure for her problem is quite simple. I told her to wear a Lapis Lazuli beads bracelet with an apple charm. That’s it! And she did.

Six weeks after now she claims that she can feel the significant improvement to their relationship. She said that it worked and the second week was the first time in her career life with her boss as her boss where she didn’t have an argument with him for a week, while usually they’ll have an argument at least three times a week!!!!

This is because Lapis Lazuli is a crystal that helps in communication and the apple charm helps promote harmony.

It’s Was His Time

Published Mayo 11, 2017 by jptan2012

Today is a very sad day.

Today, I, together with my family had to bury a nephew.

Today I had to reckoned and face the truth that when it’s your time then it it’s your time.

My cousin’s son who grew up with us; who grew up with my nephews from my sister; whom we treat like our own went on a trip last Friday with some of his friends. He had an accident and was rushed to the hospital where he was declared to be in a coma.

He passed away last Sunday.

He was protected with the Vajrapani Ruel and Kalachakra pendant.

He was not wearing them.

He was just having fun.

He fell from a 7 feet high ledge.

He went to a coma.

He died.

He was born in 2003 in the year of the Sheep.

His chart shows that he should be careful this 2017.

His mom got him the Vajrapani Ruel and the Kalachakra pendant.

He wasn’t wearing or carrying them with him because his friends will tease him about it. I wanted to blame his friends for teasing him, if only they know how to respect the belief of other people they would not have not tease him. My nephew will not have to be forced not to wear them. But the truth is it’s not their fault.

He wasn’t wearing them because his father understands how embarrassing it was to be teased so he agreed to keep them from him until he come back from the trip. It was easy to blame him. I was blaming him. But my friend BM pointed out it’s not the time to blame anybody, and remember he is the father. But the truth is it’s really not his fault because he simply grew up not believing in Feng Shui. It’s ingrained on him even if his wife, my cousin, practices Feng Shui.

He wasn’t wearing them because my nephew wasn’t wearing them because peer pressure takes precedence over his belief in Feng Shui. He grew up with us and so maybe it was my fault. I wasn’t able to ingrained on him the importance of Feng Shui and of amulets. But BM said and my Guru Lama said it was nobody’s fault. It temporarily shook me and though I never questioned the truth about Feng Shui and amulets and Buddhism, I immediately wondered whether when he was growing up I did enough to teach him about Feng Shui, about Taoism, about Buddhism. But it was nobody’s fault. He stayed with us until he was 11 years old.

He was 13 turning 14 next month.

He was young.

He can be a little stubborn at times, but he is a good boy.

He was just having fun, supervised by several adults.

He fell only about 7 feet.

He went into coma.

He passed away.

He left us wondering why is it sometimes this world can be cruel.

But it was his time. Maybe he wasn’t wearing the amulets because he was meant to go already.

Still it’s painful and it shook us to our core.

We will miss him.

We will have to learn to live without him.

We buried him today.

It was his time.

 

Why Did Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Manila Closed?: A Feng Shui Analysis!

Published Mayo 5, 2017 by jptan2012

 

I was hesitant to write this piece because other Feng Shui practitioners were involved. However, I decided to write it anyway because I want my readers to be aware that Feng Shui is not limited to the inside of the house, you should be very conscious of what is outside the house also.

Yesterday or in my preceding post, I talked about how the statue of Lapu Lapu in Magellan Shrine might have caused the death of several incumbent mayors. Today, I would like to share with you why I think Mandarin Oriental closed down. It is very similar to what happened in the said incumbent mayors who all died in office.

As I said, I was first hesitant to write about this article, but I would like to make it clear, when I first noticed what I notice I did talked to two professional Feng Shui Consultants with close affinity to the said hotel. What am I talking about?

Obviously, if you talk to the owners or management of Mandarin Oriental, they would give you various reasons as to why they decided to close. In fact, the official statement is that the property is “no longer in keeping with its luxury hospitality offering.” Of course, that would be another way of saying that they are losing money because they are no longer able to serve their guests with the amount of service they are able to provide. If they have the money they could have renovated the hotel several floors at a time, this was done by Philippine Plaza, which is now Sofitel.

So what really caused the ‘downfall’ of Mandarin Oriental? I firmly believed that the putting of some heroic statues with active stance that is directed towards Mandarin Oriental was the cause of this bad luck or lowering of sales of Mandarin Oriental.

In my preceding post, I talked about how the image of Lapu Lapu in Magellan Shrine might have caused the successive deaths of successive incumbent mayors; it is the same manner that the said statues (see picture) might have caused the bad luck of Mandarin Oriental. Although one of the images shows that the sword is not directed at Mandarin Oriental, the direction of the call for attack is directed towards Mandarin Oriental. Furthermore, there is another statue of a warrior (not sure whether it is Lapu Lapu) who is looking at Mandarin Oriental. Both images are of heroes that are warrior, meaning they are aggressive images and this is the reason why I think Mandarin Oriental closed down.

As mentioned, when I first noticed this, I brought it to the attention of two professional Feng Shui consultant, but for some reason they both said the fan like image logo of the hotel will ‘fan’ away the negative energies brought about by the statues and that the figures are relatively small compared to the sturdy structure of the hotel. And at that time I also thought that their explanation is not only plausible but also valid. So like them I came to the conclusion that it will not have any effect or if does, the fan like logo of the hotel will ‘fan’ it away.

But in hindsight, there are several flaws in that belief.

First, the logo is a shell and not a fan, shells easily cracks so it won’t protect the hotel from the negative energies.

Second, and perhaps the more important reason, the images are of long time heroes, older than the hotel, and they are immortalized because of the statue, so it does carry a lot of energies, not only from the statue itself from the history that it carries with it that was transferred in the making of those images. It carries years, hundred of years, even thousands of years of energies that makes really strong. And so because no one was careful, everyone was lax, Mandarin Oriental is now no more.

The lesson here is that we should be careful with our surroundings because it does affect our Feng Shui and more than that, we should not be complacent about it.

I also wrote this article to demonstrate that even an institution like Mandarin Oriental can be affected by a poison arrow or a hostile energy. This shows that we have to be more vigilant with our surroundings. Note that these arrows is not limited to statues, but it can as simple as a pointed object or image from a neighbor’s house or any structures outside our house or office.

The Lapu Lapu Statue Blamed for the Deaths of Several Incumbent Mayors!

Published Mayo 4, 2017 by jptan2012

In the preceding posts, I talked about the alternative historical belief about the Battle of Mactan, and about the story of Lapu Lapu, who is regarded as the first Filipino hero, and of Ferdinand Magellan.

Do you think it is curious why the site of the Battle of Mactan is called Magellan Shrine in honor of Ferdinand Magellan and not Lapu Lapu Shrine? It is said that historians who believes the alternative story who were also part of the committee in setting up the shrine insisted on the calling it Magellan Shrine to ensure that the real story never gets truly buried. This is their own little way of making sure that the truth stays behind the consciousness of people. It was said that they have to agree to the popular story because Filipinos need the story of how we fought the Spanish Conquistador right from the start.

Anyway, in Magellan shrine there was no image of Magellan, but rather they placed there an image of Lapu Lapu, facing towards the city of Lapu Lapu which is right beside the modern day City of Mactan. They placed on Lapu Lapu’s hand a bow and arrow (crossbow) in the immortal active stance even hostile as a symbol how he met a lot of conquistador. However, when they placed the image of Lapu Lapu several incumbent mayor of Lapu Lapu successively passed away while in office. Most of them due to heart attacks. Until somebody pointed out that the statue of Lapu Lapu has it’s bow and arrow pointed at the city of Lapu Lapu, in fact some says it is directly pointed at the Lapu Lapu City Hall.

So they replaced it with a less violent or aggressive stance. This time they made him hold a bolo. The death ceased after it.

So is it possible that the crossbow active stance has something to do with the death of the incumbent mayors? Feng Shui wise it’s highly possible.

The Curious Case of A Foreign Pirate that Became a Filipino Hero: The Other Side of the Story of Lapu Lapu and Ferdinand Magellan!

Published Mayo 3, 2017 by jptan2012

Lapu Lapu is considered as the Philippine’s first hero. All Filipino children knows of the story on how Lapu Lapu as a native defended the country or at least Mactan against the Portuguese explorer who organized the Spanish Expedition, which lead him ‘discovering’ the Philippines. It is said that in the Battle of Mactan, Magellan and his men arrived with the intent of colonizing and claiming Mactan, but Lapu Lapu, who is now regarded as the first Filipino hero resisted it and in the process killed Magellan.

Then after the Battle of Mactan, we don’t know much anymore as to what happened to Lapu Lapu, only that he was regarded as the first Filipino to fight the Spanish conquistadors!

In my recent trip to Cebu, I heard another version of the story, something that is not entirely foreign to me because I have heard about it before and only this time I’m hearing it from the mouth of a tourism officer from the Department of Tourism. This person is also a historian.

It does make me wonder as to why we don’t know much about Lapu Lapu only that he killed Magellan and he refuse to show the body of Magellan so it was buried somewhere in the shore of Mactan.

Well, this is the other version of the story. Whether this is true or not, I leave it up to you to decide.

Lapu Lapu is not a Filipino; in fact, it is believed that he is a pirate from Borneo who ‘conquered’ Mactan. When Ferdinand Magellan he was truly an ambassador of goodwill, and this is why a Rajah (forgot the full name), yes Cebu was inhabited by Muslims and ruled by Rajahs, seeked Magellan’s intervention for Lapu Lapu was ruling the island with so much cruelty. The rajah was from the main island.

It is said that Ferdinand Magellan agreed to intervene and sent an emissary to see Lapu Lapu, and Lapu Lapu agreed to meet with him. So Magellan went off by boat with only a crew of 50 men on board, for it was a short trip from the main island to Mactan. When they got there they found out that the water was shallow and it was also low tide, so Magellan and his men went on foot. It was a long walk from where they have to leave their ship or boat. They need not worry about anything because it was a friendly visit and Lapu Lapu has send off word that they will be received in a amiable manner.

So 50 men including Magellan went off by foot, it was a long walk so they were tired by the time they reached the shore of Mactan, but little do they know that Lapu Lapu has send off approximately a thousand of his men (I personally think that this number could have been exaggerated) and ambushed Magellan and his men. It was said that Magellan requested his men to retreat, but they decided to stay with him. Naturally, tired and unfamiliar with the territory and caught by surprised, Magellan was killed together with his men.

So who killed Magellan? Some historians believe that it was not Lapu Lapu who killed Magellan, and that it was one of his right hand men who killed Magellan. Lapu Lapu simply took the credit by virtue of being the leader of the tribe. But he was the one who ordered that the body of Magellan be buried right away so that Magellan’s friends and people cannot claim his body. He then has a tattoo of Magellan printed on his body as a sign that he conquered a ‘warrior’.

So what happened to Lapu Lapu, while was their no more word about him after the Battle of Mactan? Some historians believes that after the Battle of Mactan, an uprising from the other Rajah’s brewed against Lapu Lapu, and so Lapu Lapu fearing for his life left Mactan and went back to Borneo. He brought with him all his family and his whole tribe. So to this day there is no trace of a descendant of Lapu Lapu in Mactan or anywhere else in the Philippines.

So why am I writing this because it has nothing to do with Feng Shui? It is because this serves a prelude to my next post about the statue of Lapu Lapu that might have caused some misfortune in the city of Lapu Lapu. But other than that, it does serves an interesting alternative story about why we don’t know much about the first Filipino hero, in fact, we seem to know more about Ferdinand Magellan the alleged conquistador.

The Danger of Exposed Beams and How To Cure It!

Published Abril 24, 2017 by jptan2012

CPA2Exposed beams are one of the greatest error or Feng Shui blunders that I see in offices or homes. Sometimes the owners for aesthetic reasons intentionally expose them, sometimes, it is economic. But having beams is really bad because it because a series of poison arrows and acts like a multiple slicer of your chi.

Some of the effects of having beams are:

  1. Financial, wealth and money bad luck.
  2. Health concerns, it is common to have migraines. One of the worst cases I have seen is somebody who had cancer because of exposed beams.
  3. Disharmony in the place, which may lead to separation if it’s in the bedroom of a couple.

Some of the extreme cases may lead to:

  1. Violent deaths of a member of a family. It may be thru homicide because of attempted burglary or homicide due to fighting amongst colleagues.
  2. Total Loss of wealth.

The best solution is not to have it and take it away. Some people will put a small cloth on top of their bed (as seen on the photo) but this is a temporary solution. It is like chopping a vegetable with a cloth on top, it will make it harder but it will soon still be chopped.CPA

Again the best solution is to take it away, or cover it. Second best solution that may be more economical for some is to put 3 tumbled stone amethyst and a Vajrapani Ruel, which is considered as the world’s best amulet in the Buddhist pantheon.
