The Feng Shui of Food: Incorporate More Color on Your Diet!

Published Mayo 7, 2018 by jptan2012

One of the less talk about Feng Shui is Feng Shui of eating. It is actually one of the simplest way to enhanced your Feng Shui, albeit the effect doesn’t last really long, but doing it regularly should have at least about 5% to 10% increase in your good Feng Shui.

Feng Shui eating is simple, incorporate a lot of yang energy by putting in more color to your food. You do this by eating less meat and eating more vegetables and fruits. The key is to incorporate various yang colors. So, you don’t just eat green vegetables, but incorporate other colorful vegetables like red beans or red bell peppers, yellow bell peppers, carrots, purple lettuce or purple cabbage etc. The same goes with fruits, make it a “happy meal” of colors. And you know what, in the Feng Shui of food, it’s the sour fruit that brings in more chi. These are kiwis, lemon, or other citrus fruits.fruits and beggies

Please note that Buddhists believe that eating meat and any other sentient being like oysters, fish, shrimps, etc., is actually a mortal sin. But in Feng Shui, meat and these meats from sentient beings are considered as Yin food or food with negative energies.

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.

Why Become Vegetarian?

Published Setyembre 12, 2015 by jptan2012

I have recently turned vegetarian, and yes sometimes I struggle, but I think this is an important step for my quest to become a better person and a better Buddhist.

I was tempted to write all the arguments about as to why we all should become vegetarian. I can talk about how methane gas destroys the earth, and if we eat meat the higher the methane gas, how poultry and cattle or pig farms contributes to the destruction of the earth. But I guess there is only one argument for the Buddhist.

Because before we can enjoy these…food1

Myth Buster 16: Taking Home a Starfish Can Bring You Wealth Luck

Published Mayo 20, 2014 by jptan2012

boracay-pic-3In my recent trip to the world famous resort island of Boracay, while me and my friends were just relaxing at one of the Casitas of Ariel’s Pointe, I came across a Finnish woman who I noticed was holding a starfish and was putting it in a plastic container.

While I cannot say that I’m a hardcore environmentalist, the truth is being a Feng Shui practitioner and a Buddhist, it’s impossible not to be a little environmentalist. It is simply part of the practice. So I decided to intervene put on a smile and nicely ask her what is she doing with the starfish. She smiled back at me and told me that there is a Finnish belief that when you accidentally step on a starfish and you decide to keep it, it will surely bring you a lot of good luck.

I first appreciated the starfish and told her that it is illegal to bring the starfish home and that she might be apprehended at the port. The truth is I’m really not sure whether there is such a law; I just decided to tell her the most logical thing. Explaining that bringing the starfish home is not good for the environmentalist, much more for the starfish, will be a tough job because she’s already on her 40s and she should know that already, so I decided to take the most effective route which is about her personal safety and that it being illegal. While I don’t know whether there is such a law in the country, I believe that it is the most logical thing to have. I’m glad she listened and decided to throw it back to the water.starfish

This is the first time I heard about starfish bringing wealth luck, but this is my take on it. If you came across a starfish on the shore, it is really good to throw it back to the water because on the shore for a long time without water, the starfish will surely die. By throwing it back (and yes you throw it back as far as you can so that it will not be washed ashore again, and no it won’t hurt the starfish) you would have saved the starfish from its eventual death, thus creating some good karma for yourself which might bring you some luck. However, bringing it home will surely kill the starfish, with a dead starfish not only did you create a tremendous amount of negative karma for yourself but also keeping a dead starfish is literally keeping a yin or negative energy. Both the negative karma and the yin energy will definitely bring a lot of bad luck for you.

So the next time you see a starfish on the shore, appreciate it a little and throw it back to the water to create some good karma for yourself.

A Prophetic Dream, The Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant, and A Wonderful Blessing

Published Mayo 2, 2013 by jptan2012

Today, I would like to share with you a story of yet another reader. Let’s just call him D.

D wrote me an email a few months back. However, because of the numerous emails that I received a day, I was not able to reply sooner. After about 3 emails, I chanced upon one of his latest email last February and replied.

D said he’s a regular reader of my blog and claims to have read each and every single post that I’ve written. He also said that he’s been wanting to get the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant but thought that I it might be expensive. I told that, unfortunately, it is indeed the case because according to my jeweler it is quite difficult to make it because of the intricate design.

D said he wants to get the pendant because his wife his currently pregnant and while he still has some savings, he just lost his job. He is hoping to go into business; however, he felt that it is not the right time for him to get into something big because of his wife’s pregnancy.

I agreed to do a basic reading of D’s BAZI, and it showed that going into business might be better for him. However, he said, he is more inclined to just go back and look for work just to be on the safe side. I recommended some Feng Shui charms that he can wear which he can buy either online or in Chinatown.

However, two days after we talked. D called me up again, and told me about a dream that disturbed him. He said, in his dream, his Arowana spit out the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant and that he was suddenly surrounded by several large beautiful aquariums filled with various different beautiful fishes.

I’m not a dream interpreter. However, in Feng Shui Fish and Water are almost always a sign of money luck. The key word here is that in his dream he saw BEAUTIFUL aquariums and BEAUTIFUL fishes, which gave me an indication that it’s a good sign.  I was cautious not to relate the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING AND MANTRA pendant with his possible good fortune because I don’t want him to think that I’m trying to sell him my pendant. However, D raised the question of the relation of the pendant to the fishes, that’s when I told him getting the pendant or simply tapping on the images found on the pendant might be the key for him to get the money luck as indicated in his dream.

The key word on D's dream is that he saw what he describes as beautiful fishes and aquarium.

Dennis decided to request me to have the pendant made for him. Last March, about a month after from he requested it, he finally got the pendant, and believes that the pendant will help him get a job. However, about 2 weeks ago D called me to inform me that he still haven’t found a job, but something better happened. His wife’s uncle called them up to inform him that he is retiring, however, since all his children are in the US, nobody will run his business for him. It’s a good business that earns a substantial income every month and it will be a waste to just close shop. He wants his niece and D to take over the business. They agreed on a price, which they’ll have to pay off monthly and the business is theirs already.

D feels that this wonderful blessing was all because of the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant. As for me, I’m just happy that the pendant that I designed for myself and my family and friends is now an instrument for a lot of people to receive blessings and I have shared some of these testimonies here on this blog. The titles are : WISH FULFILLED WITH THE ‘WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT’ – A PERSONAL TESTIMONY and the other one is ANOTHER WISH FULFILLED WITH THE ‘WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT’. There are a lot of my readers who shares with me the blessings that they get when they get the pendant. For some people, it is simply as making them calmer. But for me I’m just really happy that something I designed for myself and for family and friends in now an instrument for people to tap into good Feng Shui.

Incidentally, I would like to share here that while I do accept requests for the pendant, please understand that I’m not a seller and neither is this my job. This is just something that I do on the side and I have my own business that I run. Sharing this here because I don’t want confusion that you’ll get your pendant anytime you want, you will have to wait until I finish working on your bazi to identify the stone that needs to be put on your pendant and for production time.

Many people who request for the pendant has problems that they go through that is why they get the pendant, no one can say whether your problem is bigger than that of the other thus you need the pendant more. I felt I needed to add this one as a learning from my experience with CR.

The Eight Auspicious Objects of Buddhism: The Mystical Mystic Knot, The Victory Banner, and The Dharmachakra Wheel

Mystic Knot3

The Victory Banner is considered as one of the 8 Auspicious Object in Buddhism.

The Victory Banner is considered as one of the 8 Auspicious Object in Buddhism.

I have previously written about the Mystic Knot, and the Victory Banner. If you wish to know more about it, please just click on the following link:

The Mystical Mystic Knot and The Victory Banner: A Powerful Feng Shui Tool for Career Success.

The last object on the 8 Auspicious Objects of Buddhism is the Dharmachakra Wheel.

The truth is Dharmachakra means Wheel, so to call it Dharmachakra Wheel is a bit redundant, however, Dharmachakra Wheel is a term where most people outside Tibet are familiar with, so it is the term that I’ll be using here.dharmachakra wheel

The Dharmachakra Wheel is a symbol of Buddha’s teaching, however, the different parts each have their own iconography. The rim represents the factor of limitation, the hub represents the Earth’s axis, and the eight spokes shows the Eightfold Path dictated by Buddha.

In Feng Shui, the Dharmachakra Wheel is a powerful symbol to use for surmounting all shortcomings. Furthermore, the Dharmachakra Wheel is a powerful protection symbol that we can use to protect all the non-material things that are important to us.

The Eight Auspicious Objects of Buddhism: The Conch Shell

Published Abril 9, 2013 by jptan2012

conch-shellIn ancient times the Conch Shell is used as a trumpet horn, and was considered as a symbol of strength and sovereignty. It is also said that ‘heroic figures’ are also given the conch shell as a symbol of gratitude from the ruler. Religiously, specially in Tibetan Buddhism, the conch shell is a ‘vessel’ for holy water and holy oil, and is also used as a trumpet to signify the start of an important religious event.

In Feng Shui, the conch shell is a powerful tool for those who wants to be able to prosper in their business ventures. It is also extremely beneficial for politicians to carry a conch shell because it will help them be stable in their position.

Carrying a conch shell is also a powerful tool to help a person attain a higher level of meditation.
