Global Financial Panic and Deadly Earthquake: Annual Forecast for 2018 Lunar Year of the Earth Dog Coming to Reality and How Can We Ensure Our Protection!

TAIWAN DEADLY EARTHQUAKE! (Taiwan Hotel Collapses After 6.4 Magnitude Quake)

ILOCOS NORTE EARTHQUAKE! (Magnitude 4.7 Quake Rocks Ilocos Norte)

These are just some of the headlines the past few days! While my mom was in the hospital, I was able to write several articles that is good for a month! I have already scheduled them to be automatically posted. However, the headline in the last few days prompted me to squeeze in some time to write and post this short article. As early as November, I have started writing about the bleak financial forecast of the year, and December I posted the full annual forecast that mentioned the possibility of stronger “earth” related calamities this year. And it seems to be happening already.

First, why you should believe the forecasts. It is because these are not conjured by psychic abilities, I do forecast by analyzing the movement of the stars and of the energies. This is done by computing them and analyzing them. In the past years, I have greatly shown some accuracy. I was the only Feng Shui writer who has publicly said that there will be a great calamity and some sort of famine that will happen in Visayas (central part of the Philippines) and that year Typhoon Haiyan (Typhoon Yolanda) happened. It was the strongest typhoon ever recorded in history. After that I did write about Nepal earthquake, and then some freak weather disturbances, and a lot more. These are all a matter of fact and you can easily check this blog to confirm. I’m writing this not because I want to go through some ego boosting exercise but rather I want to show you the trend of my forecasts for you to understand why I’m worried. At the very least, these forecasts cannot be attributed to my supernatural power because there is nothing supernatural in analyzing and computing the relationship of the elements and the stars of the year. This show my skill computing and analyzing them but it not something that is supernatural.

Anyway, I’m writing this because as you can see there are a lot of signs that what I’ve written are coming true. Global stock market plunges causing panic amongst financial analysts and businessmen. The DOW Jones also plunges by more than 1100+ points! Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency known for its high and good performance also have been steadily plunging down! In the Philippines, Coca – Cola is laying off 600 of its workers, while the official reason is restructuring, it doesn’t take an analyst to know what really cause it given that they made the decision when the TRAIN law took effect. In a country like the Philippines, one has to realized that 600 people doesn’t mean only 600 gets affected. Remember, 99% if not 100% will have somebody fully depending on them or partially depending on them, so 600 at a very conservative estimate means 1,200 people. And we all know that’s not the case because spouses, children, parents, siblings may be depending on these 600 people!!!! On top of that, fuel prices are getting higher. Again, almost everything is depending on fuels and so it won’t be surprising if everything follows suits!

Meanwhile, another forecast seems to be happening also. A few days ago, there was a deadly earthquake in Taiwan. Followed by a significantly strong earthquake in Ilocos Norte, Philippines. However, although not highlighted in the news there have been significantly strong earthquakes in several parts of the world. Some of these countries are Chile, Mexico, Peru, South Africa, Uganda, Japan, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, several parts of the USA including Alaska. And as I’ve written a few days ago, science to be confirming this forecast. (Earth Could See Twice As Many Big Earthquakes This Year!)

Now I’m writing this not to scare you. But to remind you that while we technically cannot do anything about the earthquakes, we can collectively pray and the power of prayer will definitely help in some way. Who knows it may even prevent the earthquake from happening, although we really cannot know this, it is enough to sincerely pray for this. But please understand that when I said that earth calamities, I’m not referring only to earthquakes but it includes landslides as well and as we all know there was a terrible mudslide that happened in the US. In fact, world famous celebrities Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres were both affected. Volcanic eruptions are also counted as earth element calamities because of the lava flow and the inevitable lahar problem.

Aside from prayer one can also wear protective amulets. I suggest the VAJRAPANI RUEL, GOLD KALACHAKRA PENDANT, FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULETS, and/or JATUKAM RAMATHEP (please note that I don’t have a Jatukam Ramathep amulet).

Regarding the financial crisis, we can also collectively say a prayer. In both circumstances, we should pray everyday the whole year. We should also ensure that we spend money wisely. But I strongly suggest that we should all be protected with wealth amulets like the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET and the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. It is better if you can have both because these two amulets will actively create wealth luck / financial luck / money luck for you! Carrying the VAJRAPANI RUEL will also aid in protecting you from getting fully affected. Of course, if you know of any other amulets that works you can use that also.

In all these, remember that prayer works! And so pray, pray, pray! I cannot remind you enough of the power of prayers especially these challenging times ahead.

An Important Peek to the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog: Bleak Financial Forecast and Early Preparation is Key!

Published Nobyembre 6, 2017 by jptan2012

2018Regular readers of this blog will know that I don’t usually write my forecast until January, since lunar new years come in sometime late January or February or early March, but last year I wrote my forecast early because it was necessary, this year will be the same, I will write about the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog Forecast base on the Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart), Flying Stars Formula and 24 Mountain Star Formula quite early because 2018 is going to be a little quite challenging in term of money making or financial luck.

However, that forecast will be posted in the next few days, because I want to cross-reference my calculations and analysis with that of my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and Guru Lama.

But as discussed with Guru Lama that it is important that I give you a ‘peek’ already of one important factor for 2018 because it is important that we must prepare for it.

This year the Bazi Chart is extremely lacking of the metal element. By extremely lacking I mean it’s totally devoid of the said element, and as fate would have it, the metal element this year represents financial luck or wealth luck or money luck. So it is easy to conclude here that moneymaking capabilities doesn’t look hopeful. Financial aspects will be quite challenging.

This is not surprising since all Feng Shui experts or masters has predicted that the last part of 2017 Lunar Year which run between November to January will have a conflicting energy as shown by the 2017 Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart. Financial and Wealth luck is also going to be quite limited already, and this will continue to 2018 as the chart indicates we don’t have the metal element which for 2018 represents wealth luck or financial luck or money luck.

In the past two preceding posts I already have talked about this. But let me reiterate some part more clearly and also add the aspect of the 2018 Paht Chee Chart.

What this means?

This means that earning money might be a little harder, especially those who are in the business. Stocks will not do well as well, and as we can see here in the Philippines, there is already an indication of this since the government itself has announced that there was a 95% decline in foreign investments. The worst we ever had in recent history. To some extent we faired better during the Cory Aquino regime even though it was besieged by numerous coup attempt, because the decline in foreign investment then was not that high. With all humility a 95% decline is not a decline but rather it means foreign investments has become almost non – existent. No country can survive without foreign investments.

To put it into context or proper analogy so that it is easier to understand, it is like a family in a house that is trying to be self – sufficient. Kids will be thought at home, with things that are only found at home, no buying of books outside. The parents will try to earn money from home without outside buyers. Electricity and water are produced at home with no outside help. Food our simply from their own backyard without allowing rain or sunshine to come in to grow the plants, or poultry are raised without buying feeds. Is that possible? Totally possible? One may survive a few months but how can one survive totally being isolated?

Aside from the Philippines, this is already happening, albeit to a lesser degree in countries, namely Malaysia, USA, UK, etc.

Technically everybody is affected, because if business owners are affected employees are definitely affected as well.

Furthermore, you might find yourself put in a situation wherein you will lose money either by spending it or by ‘losing’ it either thru carelessness or bad business deal. This November to 2018, it is best not to lend somebody money.

If there is any consolation, even there is no metal element ergo wealth luck / financial luck / money luck on the bazi chart of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog, there is however a small sliver of hope that can be found in the hidden stems. Will discuss this further in the main forecast, but what does it mean for us.

It means those who are going into the 2018 Year of the Dog prepared will not suffer or experience this financial drought as much as other would. What preparedness means is being prepared both in practical manner or Feng Shui wise.

Practically speaking, it is best to ensure that your contracts are in place and that your client or business stakeholders won’t be able to rescind from it. This is what I did 2016 when my Feng Shui forecast is really bad; that before 2016 entered I made sure that my business will survive. Of course, this is not the only way to protect your business, if you have established good relationships with people, you will find people giving you leeway and or pushing you to help you maintain good business.

If you are an employee, and if you have been working hard and has been recognized your boss, you will find yourself having some kind of an edge over those who don’t work hard, or those who work hard but doesn’t make themselves recognized by the superiors.

Make sure also you review all business transactions carefully and that you study your investment thoroughly. It will also be good if you will spend your money wisely.

In Feng Shui it is important that you armed yourself with powerful wealth charms like the ingot or three – legged toad. Make sure these charms are made of gold.

3 legged toad pendant

Wearing a Three Legged Toad Pendant is considered very auspicious and it captures wealth for you.

Note: If you wish to read more about wealth enhancing charms or cures please read the post –FENG SHUI TIPS TO ENHANCE WEALTH LUCK, FINANCIAL LUCK, AND MONEY LUCK.

It is also important for all of us, regardless of our bazi chart to wear more gold this year, yellow gold is better because we will also need the yang energy it provides. Furthermore, you can wear powerful Buddhist amulets. The following are what I highly recommend:

  1. VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET is a powerful wealth amulet that I recently introduced on this blog. It is an amulet rediscovered by my Guru Lama about 20 years ago and has decided to make because he has foreseen this worldwide financial slump that is about to happen. Furthermore, this amulet is in a metal case, and we all need to have more metal in our body. You can read more about here by clicking on the link below at the end of the article.
  2. VAJRAPANI RUEL is another powerful amulet, perhaps the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, although, it is first and foremost a protective amulet rather than a wealth amulet. However, it should be noted that a lot of people who has the Vajrapani Ruel has experienced superb wealth miracle / financial miracle / money miracle. Some almost instantly and some gradually.
  3. WEAR AN IMAGE OF KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA or MAITREYA BUDDHA or MEDICINE BUDDHA made of gold.

Guru Lama is also releasing a SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO (also spelled as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu, Pi Xie, Pixie). A Piyao is quite common, but as I always say it is best to get the one with an active stance and not the one lying down or relax stance, this is specially true for 2018 Year of the Earth Dog.

Piyao7

This is a special gold Piyao designed by Guru Lama and made of blessed gold.

A Piyao or Pixiu or Pi Xie is a celestial animal known for its protective qualities when facing the Tai Suey. This celestial animal that is part of the Three Celestial Guardian is a great ‘peace’ offering to the Tai Suey or Grand Duke Jupiter. However, more than just as an offering it is a very powerful wealth accumulator.

As mentioned, the Pi Yao or Pi Xie is a mystical creature that is particularly powerful and auspicious. It is said to have a voracious appetite that is infinite. The interesting part is that the Pi Yao does not have an anus, which means things only go in but never come out. On top of that, the Piyao as directed by the Jade Emperor (who is the highest God in Taoism but is a powerful heavenly being in the Buddhism) is only able to eat gold and silver. It is therefore a favorite must-have for businessmen and merchants who want money to come in and not spill out a dime. It is no wonder that Pi Yao can often be seen in banks, casinos, foreign exchange markets and finance companies in Oriental countries. I mentioned earlier that traditionally, a Piyao is not an animal meant to be worshipped, but, in countries like Thailand and Cambodia, people worship the Pi Yao and offer incense and flowers within business premises. Having said this, if your Piyao is made of natural crystal its okay to light an incense in front of your Piyao not to worship it but to cleanse it from a negative ‘energies’.

Regular readers of this blog knows that even if the bazi chart of the year doesn’t lack wealth luck, I still firmly believes in the power of the Pi Yao or Pi Xie or Pi Xiu. But on 2018 Year of the Earth Dog and the coming years, starting this last quarter of the 2017 lunar year, the Pi Yao plays an important role for everybody. It is one of the Holy Trinity for the year, the will ultimately play an important role for one’s security in wealth luck / financial luck / money luck.

People who personally know me might have seen the jade Pi Yao that I regularly wear on my wrist with my citrine bracelet. However, this year I will upgrade it to the Special Gold Piyao released by Guru Lama.

There are a lot of Piyao in the market, but what makes this special?

This is specially designed by Guru Lama so that it best represents and embody the wealth acquiring abilities and also fight the negative energies of the remaining lunar months of 2017 and also the lack of money making energies of 2018.

This limited Special Gold Piyao has 4 horns that represents the four cardinal directions – East, West, North, and South. This means that one will be able to take by the horn the challenges to gain financial luck. It also has fierce but still friendly face, this indicates that while you can be fierce in business or work, you will still gain the support and admiration of the people around you. This also means that you can you charm to get to your wealth luck.  Furthermore, it is a ‘special harness’ so one can ‘harness’ it’s energy, this is something that is not found in any other Piyao’s or Pi Xie’s. On top of that they designed the said Pi Xie’s with 12 heavenly money coins to represent wealth luck for each of the 12 lunar months. The coins are found on it’s back and also at the bottom part of the image and on his legs, so this represents that it walks on money and is need not ‘search’ for it. On top of the 12 ‘big’ heavenly money coin, it also has another 5 heavenly money coin on each side of the it’s harness. This further represents that the ‘owner’ of the Pi Yao can harness wealth into his or her life. On each side of its hind legs is the symbol for protection. This represents protection from earthly dangers and envious eyes, and also harmony so that one doesn’t get into a rough, hostile situation is one’s quest to simply get more financial luck to provide for one’s family. Also incorporated is the symbol for longevity to constantly provide good health. Lastly, although quite small and not easily visible, the Piyao was designed to have strong sharp teeth, to represent its power to fight off demons and also negative energies that might cause bad luck. There are a lot of Piyaos especially those that are made out of jade or other stones, but this one is specially designed to confront the remaining negative 3 month of the lunar 2017, and the lack of wealth energies of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog.

Piyao3

This limited Special Gold Piyao has 4 horns that represents the four cardinal directions – East, West, North, and South. This means that one will be able to take by the horn the challenges to gain financial luck.

Piyao5

It also has fierce but still friendly face, this indicates that while you can be fierce in business or work, you will still gain the support and admiration of the people around you. This also means that you can you charm to get to your wealth luck.

Piyao8

On top of that they designed the said Pi Xie’s with 12 heavenly money coins to represent wealth luck for each of the 12 lunar months. The coins are found on it’s back and also at the bottom part of the image and on his legs, so this represents that it walks on money and is need not ‘search’ for it.

Piyao4

On top of the 12 ‘big’ heavenly money coin, it also has another 5 heavenly money coin on each side of the it’s harness. This further represents that the ‘owner’ of the Pi Yao can harness wealth into his or her life. On each side of its hind legs is the symbol for protection. This represents protection from earthly dangers and envious eyes, and also harmony so that one doesn’t get into a rough, hostile situation is one’s quest to simply get more financial luck to provide for one’s family. Also incorporated is the symbol for longevity to constantly provide good health

But on top of that, the gold used in making the said Piyao are gold from the offering of the Sangha members to the temple.

Buddhist would offer money, food, flowers, oil, incense to an image, but a lot of them especially those are in grave situations will also offer gems and gold. It can be a gold necklace, gold bracelet, gold rings, or gold earrings, but it is not surprising to see even real miniature or small gold bars or gold coins. These gold offerings are recorded for proper auditing and then put in a special container under the foot of either the image of Sakyamuni Buddha (Sakyamuni Buddha), Medicine Buddha, Amitabha Buddha, Dipankara Buddha (Dipamkara Buddha), Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also spelled as Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Quan Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon, Chenrezig), Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva / Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) or Vajrapani Bodhisattva. They are just there for years, and whenever the Bhiksu (Monks) or Bhiksuni (Buddhist nuns) with the higher lamas chant mantras or recite sutras or perform pujas, the said jewelries or gold offerings are blessed as well. Then once in a while they open one of these containers to melt the gold to make an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or makes gold flakes out of it so that when we invite an amulets, they can ‘sell’ these gold to make said images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or make images under our name. This becomes a way for them to raise funds to make more images or temple or food for the monks especially the student monks and also for their food.

So you see, because they stay under an image for years, and they get the power from the chanting of mantras, reciting of sutras, or pujas from the Bhiksus, Bhiksunis or the high lamas like Guru Lama, these gold items becomes really blessed. And this is what Guru Lama has used to make the said Special Gold Piyaos.

But simply wearing a Piyao or the Special Gold Piyao is not enough. You need to ensure that the element that produces metal is constantly present in your life as well. Thus the Special Gold Piyao is strung along with some crystals. However, this is where it becomes personalized because the crystal or semi – precious stone while largely earth element that will harness the growth of metal, should also be dependent on the element that best represents your own wealth luck. So for some it will be citrine, some will be amethyst (like me), some may have jade or aventurine, some may have clear quartz or a moonstone, and some may have lapis lazuli or tourmaline or onyx.

As mentioned the Special Gold Piyao will play an important role and is one of the Holy Trinity must have amulets of the year. However, having this Special Gold Piyao for the rest of your life will also prove to be a powerful tool to continue to harness wealth luck / financial luck / money luck and also serves a great protection charm. Furthermore, if you find yourself confronted by Tai Suey or the Grand Duke Jupiter, it also serves as great ‘offering’.

But aside from the above mentioned charms and amulets. It will also be good if one can chant everyday under deep meditation a full mala of the mantras of King Vaisravana and the Five Dzambhalas (also spelled as Dzambala, Jambala, Jambhala, Zambhala, Zambala).

Separated for 17 Years Brought Together By the Power of the Traditional Sutra Amulet: A Personal Testimony of A Person Who Has No Idea of What Buddhism or Feng Shui Is All About and a Little of My Personal Musings.

Published Setyembre 25, 2017 by jptan2012

For the past few days I was quite down physically, emotionally, and psychologically. The past few weeks has been quite challenging because three different groups have been consulting me about the same matter, and initially I wasn’t sure that they were all related then in the process I realized these groups were consulting about the same matter. They’re all in three different sides, well technically speaking, but the other two are on the same side, one on a personal level and the other one on a macro perspective. This has taken a toll on me both physically because meeting them is a tedious thing, psychologically because a lot of what was happening between them involves a lot of psychological warfare and deception, and emotionally because somehow one can’t get involve and become friends to some of them and of course one worries also especially if the reading or analysis of the chart shows something that is not nice.

Then a reader sent me a message who recently bumped into an employee of a professional Feng Shui consultant. And because my reader used to be a valued customer of the said Feng Shui consultant, the employee told her that his boss is really angry with me and blames me for the closing or downsizing of the Feng Shui stores in the Philippines. The employee further told my reader that it seems like it has become a personal mission of this Feng Shui consultant to malign me and bad mouth me in any possible way. And why is he sharing this with her, because he is looking for a job and wanted to work for my reader, so I think I will give the whole story some leeway for an exaggeration but still these things does get into you.Emily SMS

On top of that, another valued reader and friend for some reason stumbled into an issue and somewhat felt a little aloof. Of course, people surrounding him who doesn’t know him will be quick to judge, I’m just thankful that at the end all the positive things that happened prevailed for him to know and accept the truth. On top of that there was some sort of a miscommunication with a reader from Australia.

You see all these things sort of got to me and for a while I was thinking whether I should still continue writing or not. I have already written more than 800 articles, and even before I sort of feel that I might have written enough. So I thought I’d stop already or maybe stop on my 1,000th article.

Then I get another miracle and it all becomes clear again why I continue to write, despite of the anger of some people who are against these things, despite the attacks of some bashers, despite of some of my own shortcomings, I continue to write because of the miracles of the people who continue to believe and who continue to hope for miracles.

This particular miracle got to me because the persons involved waited for 17 years for it to happen.

Ben is an Uber driver. I met him October last year (that’s according to Ben) when my own driver was absent and I had to take Uber and we got into talking in the car because of a heavy traffic. I was with a friend at that time when Ben casually told us his story.

Ben is a single father of two. He lives on his own because his ex-wife is with their only daughter in Canada. His daughter, who happens to be his eldest, is now 25 years of age. My friend and I asked him why he didn’t live with them; he said he chose to stay because of his ‘true love’. His first wife has since remarried.

Ben said that he was not in – love with his ex-wife, he said they both got drunk and in the process he got his ex – wife pregnant and they bore a daughter. He said while his ex – wife is really not a bad person, they can’t seem to get along well especially ex – wife is a bit of a nagger. When their eldest was only a year old ex – wife left for Canada and made a promise to get them as well. Ben is the first to admit that ex – wife is a smart woman, and a hardworking one so when their daughter was about 7 years old they got their papers from Canadian embassy granting them permit to live in Canada with ex –wife who at that time was still his legal wife.

However, in the past few years Ben met another whom he had an affair with. Ben said he was contemplating separating with his wife then so that he can be with Lot the woman he is having an affair with. But Ben admits while he loves Lot he was racked with guilt for his wife. Nevertheless, she got Lot pregnant and knows that she has to do something about it.

Ben made a decision he will leave his wife so that he can be with Lot. But Lot wants Ben to talk with her father first, who has never liked Ben. So Ben and Lot’s father met. During that meeting Ben told his Lot’s father that he has decided to talk to his wife so that can properly separate and that he wish to marry Lot and take responsibility for the child. Should Lot and his father decides that they should not be married, he will still take responsibility of the child and give part of his salary from his job with Max’s Restaurant to provide for his child with Lot. The father was very amiable during that meeting, to which Lot was absent, and requested for Ben to give them a week to decide. And during that week, he told Ben not to see Lot because he doesn’t want her daughter to be confused and wants her to decide properly whether she wants to be with Ben or not. He told Ben that he would personally get in touch with him at his work. Ben said at that time they still don’t own mobile phones.

A week passed and he didn’t hear from Lot and her father. Halfway thru the second week he went to Lot’s house and he was met by Lot’s father who told him that Lot doesn’t want anything to do with him. He pursued Lot several times but Lot never once went out to meet him. Until the barangay told him that should he visit the place again he will be charged. Soon he found out that Lot’s family moved to a different house. He doesn’t know where.

But to be fair with his wife, he told her the truth and told her that he will not be joining them in Canada. So when his daughter left he explained to her why he was staying and told him she might have a sibling soon. That was 17 years ago last year and he has never heard of Lot again. He said he has been searching for on Facebook to no avail. He doesn’t even know whether their child survived or not and if it did he doesn’t know whether it is a boy or a girl.

Ben said he has never been with anybody else since then.

I just recently wrote about the Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA) when I encountered Ben and was told about this story. My girl – friend who was with me at that time got really affected and told me we should do something for Ben. I decided to give Ben a TSA, and my friend who is a believer and just had a miracle from her Vajrapani Ruel pitched for half of the cost of donation for the TSA.

We got Ben’s number and he got ours. But of course we didn’t hear from each other again.

And so the past week I was feeling down and I got a call from Ben. To be honest, it’s been almost a year and I don’t remember him anymore. But Ben would help lift me out of that feeling of being down and he reminded me why I write about these things.

You see after 17 years Ben met Lot again and after 17 years he met his son! They now live together and will be married soon. So what happened?

After meeting Ben, Lot’s father went home fuming mad and told Lot to forget about Ben because Ben told him that while he will support their child financially, he will not acknowledge the child because he is married and is scheduled to leave for Canada! Lot was really heartbroken with this piece of news and so when her father suggested that she goes live with her uncle (his father’s brother) and auntie in Novaliches (a place quite far from where they live which is in Rizal) she agreed. That’s where she gave birth and soon his parents also moved to Novaliches and they lived next door to the Uncle and Auntie who took care of her while she was pregnant.

She didn’t know that Ben went looking for him but he was constantly sent away but his parents and that finally they threatened to charge him for continuously badgering them. When Lot’s son was 13 years old Lot’s father has a heart attack and before he died he told Lot that should he see Ben again she should talk to him. Lot said why should he when he has abandoned them, but Lot’s father just said that maybe Ben has repented, although Lot thought this was curious she just decided that this was all just musings of a dying old man.

When Lot’s son was 15 years old, he told his mom that he wants to meet his dad, but Lot told him to just leave Ben alone and that he has nothing to do with their life. She even refused to give him Ben’s name.

Last week of October 2016 Lot’s son had an idea to make a Facebook account for his mother, and he thought he’d put in the relationship status ‘Complicated’ in the hope that when Ben sees his mom’s account he will contact them. Little did he know that Ben would from time to time search for Lot on FB and he did see the account made by their son for Lot.

When their son saw Ben trying to add and chat Lot, he had a gut feel that this could be his father and saw he told his mom about the FB account he made for her and about the man name Ben who was trying to get in touch with her. Lot got so angry, angry like she has never been before. And so their son knew then Ben was his father. But Lot also asked for the details of the FB and he soon chatted with Ben.

She decided to meet Ben first and when Ben called her ‘Balot’ again, a pet name Ben created for Lot, she knew that she was still in love with Ben. And the rest is history. Ben said he is now trying to establish a good relationship with his son. He said it was not easy but they’re both trying. Ben and Lot will get married soon. Ben said he forgot about the TSA and never attributed everything to it. But when cleaning the house, Lot saw and asked him about the TSA, and he told him the story. They realized that their son put up the FB account a week after Ben got the TSA. And so that sealed their belief that it was really because of the TSA that they got back together. Ben wants me to be their godfather on their wedding. I felt I was too young to be their godfather but I still said yes. It’s a miracle that they got back 17 years after and my girl – friend who is going to be a godmother will want to witness the wedding that is 17 years in the making.

With this story there is another miracle, and that is the miracle of Ben sharing with me their story at this time. It helped me to stay on track to continue writing what I write. Will I stop on the one thousandth post? I don’t know but in the meantime Ben and Lot’s story is one of the reasons why I write and share these things.

Know the History of Your Second Hand Car

Published Enero 23, 2015 by jptan2012

A friend’s friend bought a second hand car about a year ago, and since it was his first car he was really happy about it. The price was quite reasonable and the condition of the car is still very good.

The ecstatic feeling lasted about a week, because just a week after he had his first car an accident happened. He was on his way from the office when he suddenly lost control of his car and bumped into an electrical post. The car was slightly damaged but he was otherwise fine. However, it turns out to be the first of a series of accidents.car

All in all, he had of total of 5 accidents in a span of a year! Two of which are really bad. One was when a bus driver fell asleep as bumped into him. He has to be hospitalized for a day for a concussion, and the most recent one is when a he ran into another multi – vehicle accident involving a taxi and a motorbike. Again he was rushed to the hospital and had to have some stitches.

My friend suggested to him to ask me as to what can be causing his bad luck. The first thing I asked him is whether he is familiar with the history of his car and recommended that he put a Kalachakra and a Kuan Yin or Kuan Kong inside his car. He heeded my recommendation but still proceeded to check the history of his car.

What he found out was a little unnerving. As it turn out, on major reason the car was sold to him is because the previous owner had several accidents, one of which, was freak accident because the damaged to the car was minimal but lead to the death of a friend of the previous owner. For some reason the said friend was hit badly that he died inside the car. He didn’t suffer any wound but his spine was damaged.

The next time you’re buying a second hand car look beyond the price and the condition of the car. Find out its history.

Is Keeping A Picture of A Dead Person Creates Bad Chi?

Published Hunyo 4, 2014 by jptan2012

I know that yesterday’s article about embracing a tomb and taking pictures of it creates bad chi. I know that people will now ask whether keeping a picture of a loved one will also create bad chi.

Generally speaking in Feng Shui keeping a picture of dead person creates bad chi. However, there are some exceptions to the rule because one has to consider other factors that creates energy.

Pope John Paul IIFor example, for Catholics Pope John Paul II and Mother Teresa are people who died, but I don’t think keeping their picture will create bad chi because a lot of the Catholics considers them as living saints. To relate it to a Buddhist perspective, they are people who exude so much positive chi while they are living that their very image creates positive chi because it can only invoke positivity.

However, keeping a picture of Adolf Hitler at face value is bad because he embodies evilness, at least to most people. I would like to clarify though that I’m not here to judge the core humanness of the names that I mentioned above, but I’m only judging as the facts in history presents itself. In Buddhism, no one can judge a person is good or bad despite of their acts because no one can judge the core value or belief or reason for an act.

Keeping a picture of a dead person that you don’t personally know will also create bad chi, because there is nothing that will change that energy. However, keeping a picture of a person that you love, will not create bad chi, because the feeling of love towards the person should create enough positive chi to either temper it if not kill the bad chi.

Most Chinese will keep a picture and an alter of a dead relative. This usually creates good chi because one continues to ‘nurture’ the love by offering incense and/or food to the dead ancestor. However, this only becomes bad when the time has come that the younger generation feels neither love nor respect to the dead ancestor. Then the bond starts to break and there will be no buffer for the bad chi.

In summary, it is bad to keep a picture of a dead person because it creates bad chi. However, a ‘living saint’ and love creates much stronger positive chi that the bad chi these pictures create.

Did Kuan Kong Save a Boy from the Wrath of Typhoon Yolanda?

Published Disyembre 1, 2013 by jptan2012

The past few weeks we’ve heard a lot of horror stories about the ordeal of the people who were affected by Typhoon Yolanda or Typhoon Haiyan. It seems that regardless of social or economic status, no one was spared in the affected areas. In fact, the mayor of Tacloban, Leyte himself was greatly affected and had to wear a looted shorts so that he can just wear something ‘decent’.

But amidst these terrible, horrific, sad stories, there are other people who have miraculous experience that helps strengthen their faith. Whether Catholic, Buddhist, etc. there are a lot of those stories.

One of those stories is about a 6-year-old Filipino – Chinese boy. HT’s father is a Kuan Kong (also spelled as Guan Gong or Kwan Kong) devotee who will always tell his son that whenever he feels afraid he should simply call on Kuan Kong and Kuan Kong will come and be with him and protect him from all dangers. Little did they know that this would be put to a test.Kuan Kong23

Like most people from the affected areas, they were told that there is a strong typhoon coming their way, that this could be the strongest typhoon of the year. But because Philippines are a typhoon country, we thought we know how to prepare for a super typhoon, because this is not the first time that we had a super typhoon. Now we know that Typhoon Yolanda with international name Typhoon Haiyan, is more than just a super typhoon. In fact, it is now officially considered as the strongest typhoon ever to hit earth on recorded world history! It is that bad!

So like other families in Tacloban, Leyte, HT’s family tried their best to prepare for the Typhoon Yolanda and while their house was strong enough to withstand the rains and the winds, they, like most people were not aware of storm surges.

They were prepared but when storm surges started to come in, their house that never experienced being flooded was suddenly with knee-deep water. The knee deep water soon started to rise, and while HT, his dad, his mom, and 2 other older brothers with the helpers are on the second floor, it became obvious that being on the second floor will not save them. The sturdiness of their house now seems to work against them, because they were trying to break their ceiling so that they can have room to breath or go out by the roof if necessary. At this time, HT’s father with a helper was on a ‘folding step or ladder’ trying to break off the ceiling. HT, his 2 older brothers were with his mom in the same room, and another helper is assisting the mom who because of the strong current is having some difficulty holding the children.

HT’s father was still trying to break the ceiling when all of a sudden a strong current came in, through the windows, the current hit the stepladder and they were wash away by the water. Her husband that she accidentally let go of HT also hit HT’s mom. HT was brought by the strong current and was taken out of the master’s bedroom. There was a temporary panic and except for HT everybody was accounted for in the room. HT’s dad decided to look for HT while the two helpers continue to try breaking the ceiling.

According to HT’s dad it was an intense moment, his youngest son was so small that part of him believes that he can easily hit a wall and die. He first looked for him towards the stairs and was afraid that the current might have sunk him back to the first floor. If that’s the case he knew he has lost HT!

He was about to dive in to the water going to the first floor when ‘instinct’ told him to check the old bedroom of his parents which is now used as a guest room. He went inside and saw HT unconscious with half of his body on a table and the other half in the water. He immediately approach HT fearing the worst but as soon as he held HT, HT woke up. He also realized that part of the ceiling of the guest room has given in to the rain and wind, and realized that it was their way out. With HT he went back to get his wife, 2 other children, and helpers. To make the long story short, they were able to escape and stayed on their roof. That was not the end of their ordeal but it soon became apparent that they were going to be saved.

So what happened to HT? Nobody really knows for sure. My cousin told me this story. HT’s father is his friend. I don’t know how much of the story is still accurate because we all know that stories can muddled every time we tell them. But according to my cousin, when they were still in the master’s bedroom, knowing that they were in danger, HT decided to heed his father’s constant advice and that is to call on Kuan Kong. So that’s what he did, he kept on calling Kuan Kong. HT doesn’t remember anything about the surge of current and being washed away by the water. But he said that he saw Kuan Kong’s face before he lost consciousness.

Is it possible that Kuan Kong was the one who saved HT?Kuan Kong

Personally speaking, although admittedly I may be biased, my initial reaction about this ‘tremendous’ type of testimonials is to be skeptic about it. However, this came from a 6 – year –old boy, and given the circumstances surrounding the story, it is unlikely that a 6 – year – old boy can come with a story such as this.

On the other hand, I shouldn’t be surprised anymore because I’ve always believed that Kuan Kong is one of the most powerful Bodhisattva in Buddhism and a very powerful deity in Taoism. In fact, some groups believe that he is now the new Jade Emperor. It is also because of my personal devotion to Kuan Kong that I made sure that his image is included in the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT that I design initially for myself and for my family but has since then been requested by a lot of my readers.

So I guess, what I’m trying to say, whether Kuan Kong was a product of a child’s imagination, who is to say that there was no miracle that happened that day?

Kuan Kong is also called Guan Yu, Kuan Yu, Kuan Ti, Guan Ti, Kwan Ti.

 

The Importance of Wearing Jewelries

Published Agosto 11, 2012 by jptan2012

The truth is jewelries are not just for vanity, it has a Feng Shui effect.

If you look at China’s history, jewelries are seldom worn for it’s visual effect, but they are worn for a reason, and most of the time, if not all the time, the reason is for good Feng Shui – either has a protection or luck.

Emperors and Empress at that time don’t just wear jade or gold jewelries because they simply fancy them; they wear it because it is something that they need to wear. The truth is they have a Feng Shui expert that tells them what kind of jewelry they can or cannot wear.

On top of that, Chinese are partial to jades and gold because for a specific reason. They believe that jade is a protection stone and also a lucky money stone. In fact, you’ll seldom see a wealthy Chinese (then and now) who doesn’t own a jade. Jade is very important for Chinese. A lot of them wears a jade either as a pendant, ring, or as bangles (bracelet). They believe that the jade will absorb a negative chi that’s directed towards them.

Jade is one of the most favored semi-precious stone of the Chinese. However, you should be careful in buying your jade, there are a lot of faux/fake jade in the market because it’s quite easy to replicate it. I know of a Feng Shui consultant who has a store that sells fake or low quality jade at about Php 8,800.00 or about US$200.00. She gets those jade at aroung Php 50.00 each or US$1.00. I think it’s simply wrong to sell fake items, if one is selling fake one has to be quite honest that it’s a synthetic stone and not a real one.

Regular readers of this blog know that I’m an avid believer of the power of gold; this is because gold on its own is a good Feng Shui enhancer or cure. It is especially good if the gold is between 14 carat and 24 carat. The Chinese also believes that gold is a very Feng Shui enhancer for money luck. More than that, gold being a precious metal naturally carries a lot of yang chi.

Simply having a jade or a gold on your body naturally enhances our personal Feng Shui, this becomes better if the jewelry incorporates a Feng Shui symbol. This is the reason why I decided to have the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT cast in gold. However, simply having a gold ring, gold bracelet or necklace is actually good enough and simply having a jade ring worn on any of your fingers (but better on your pinky), or jade pendant, or jade bracelet is sure enough to bring some very positive chi.

Just make sure that the design doesn’t connote any negativity.
