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.

Is There Such A Thing As Too Much Yang Energy in the Summer?

Published Marso 19, 2015 by jptan2012

sunshineRegular readers of this blog know that I always espouse for a balance of energy, specifically Yin and Yang energies. But as I have also clarified balance doesn’t necessarily mean than Yin and Yang energies are in equal amount, in Feng Shui Yin and Yang means there is more Yang than Yin in our life.

What are the examples of Yin and Yang? Morning is Yang and evening is Yin, as living persons, we should spend more of our time with Yang and lesser time in Yin. This usually manifests during our waking hours we need light and when we retire in the evening, it is advisable to sleep with the lights dimmed so we have some Yin. Sleeping itself is a Yin activity of the body with great Yang effect.

It is easier to feel the effects of too much yin, and we seldom hear Feng Shui experts talking about the dangers of being exposed to too much yang energy. But is there such a thing as too much yang? The straight answer to that is yes, but then yang is so much preferred that too much yang is simply not taken into consideration.

In my recent trip to the popular resort island here in the Philippines, some local government officials consulted me about what they dubbed as mysterious deaths that happens in April to early May. They said these are cases of people simply having fun and they would suddenly drop dead. They said the number of deaths is quite bothersome, and when they checked their records, they said that almost half of the deaths that happen in the island occur during April to May. It takes all their PR efforts to ensure that this news doesn’t come out to the media, but they said it is really significant.

Much of these deaths they said happens during an activity, whether it is island hopping or some water sports or it can be during party time. Most, if not all these mysterious deaths, happens to young people between the ages of 20 to 35.beachparty

Obviously, I won’t be able to offer a very accurate comment about these mysterious deaths, but when they explained to me what happened, I think this could be a case of an exposure to excessive yang energies! I came to this conclusion because of what they said; some of the common factors are these people die on their 3rd or 4th day in the island. A lot of them have been found to party a lot and on top of that, a lot of them are sometimes too drunk to go back to their hotel and have slept on the beach in the morning under the heat of the sun. Several of them have even abused themselves further by going without sleep or only sleeping for a few hours. Meaning there was not much exposure to yin energies or yin activities, it’s all yang.

Too much yang is also bad. The very first thing that it will affect is our tempers and heart or blood circulation. Go figure, a lot of these deaths was caused by simply their heart working too much that it seems to simply give up on them. So remember, too much yang, although rare, can happen and its effect is felt far faster than that of yin energy.

So remember the next time you go to Boracay or Panglao or Puerto Galera in the Philippines or to any other resort in other countries, enjoy the strong yang energy of the summer but have some yin energies as well. Do not kill off your yin energies because it might kill you also.

Wishes Fulfilled with the ‘Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant’ and a Big Business Break with the ‘Wealth and Master Protection Pendant’ – Personal Testimonies of Readers

Published Setyembre 18, 2013 by jptan2012

When I first started this blog I never thought I would be part, in a very small way, to a lot of wonderful ‘miraculous’ events in the lives of the people who would become my readers. Furthermore, I never thought the a simple Feng Shui charm that I designed incorporating the things that I’ve learned from my various Feng Shui teachers or masters, and from Buddhist monks and Taoist monks will create so much good things in the lives of a lot of people. What’s ironic is that these pendants were never designed for the public but rather for the use of my family, relatives, and to some extent some of our friends.

I’m talking about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT and the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT. The truth is these pendants were designed because of our (my family and I) frustrations about how we have to change Feng Shui cures or enhancers every years, and how do we have to wear a lot of things around our neck, wrist, fingers and have so much heavy objects around our pockets and bags. Furthermore, these Feng Shui cures and enhancers had to be replaced every year, especially, when they’ve become tarnished.

The first of these pendants is the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT; you can read more about it by clicking here. However, I no longer accept requests for the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, because it’s quite big and cost so much money. That’s the first story I would like to talk about.

At the back of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION are the Chinese character for 'THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN' and the images of the Three Celestial Guardians (provides protection against the 3 Killings), Five Element Pagoda (provides protection from the Five Yellow Star or Flying Star #5) and the Ksitigarbha Fireball (provides protection against the Argumentative Star).

Last, February 2013, a couple, a husband and wife businessmen contacted me. The first thing that I sense about them is that they’re a little ‘secretive’ about their true identity. While they have a house here in Manila, they’re mainly base in Cebu. After several conversations, I agreed to meet them. I suggested that we meet in a mall, but they requested that we meet in a hotel in Makati instead. I agreed.

When I saw them, I had the feeling that I’ve seen them before. The feeling is not that I vaguely know them but rather that I’ve seen them before. At the middle of our conversation, their son joined us, that’s when I realized that I’ve seen them on TV before. Their son is now trying to make a life for himself on a different industry while he still tries to help out in their family business.

They requested for the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, I told them that it is no longer available because of it is very expensive, but they insisted so I agreed to get them the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, one for each one of them. As it turned out, the husband is a devotee of THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN – SUN WUKONG, and is as long been looking for a gold or jade pendant that bares the image of the SUN WUKONG. For those who’ve read my post about THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN you’d know that SUN WUKONG is great for those who need money and who are in business.

'The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven' Monkey King called Sun Wukong is a very powerful wealth and protector god that's both highly revered in Taoism and Buddhism.

They told me that they’re bidding for a construction project in China and needs all the help they can get because they’re not necessarily the biggest company in the country, and neither are they the biggest company participating in the bidding, but that they really want this project. They said that it will be a long and tedious process and expects the result to come out in November or December.

Just about a couple of weeks ago they called me up again to tell me that they won the project. I told them that isn’t it quite early and they said that it is part of the good news that the Chinese end made an early announcement. It’s part of the good news because the agony of waiting is sometimes a little too much for them.

And what’s even greater news is that they got 5 more WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, not for themselves but for them to be able to sell it at half the price of how much they got it. They said, they want more people to experience the blessing of WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, and that it is their way of sharing the blessing.

Incidentally, I would like to stress that I still am not making the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT available to those who are requesting it, because it is really pricey. Almost as expensive as some of Lillian Too’s pendants.

The second good news is about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT. I have posted several personal testimony about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT and the truth is there are so much more about that I haven’t written about and there are several more emails or stories told me by readers who has requested for it.

This time it’s a story of a DJ and part time actress, but because she is somebody who might become famous in the next few months or years I will not use her first name initial and last name initial. I’ll just stick to her first name initial. A has been a radio DJ for quite some time now, and she has appeared in a movie before. However, she felt that her career has been stagnant even before it has taken off, also she has been in a long time relationship and although she and her boyfriend is about to get married, she’s a little bothered that both her parents and that of her boyfriend’s parents doesn’t approve of their relationship.

The back side of the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA MANTRA BLESSING PENDANT has the images of the Victory Banner, Lung-Ta or Windhorse, the seed syllable of the Goddess Tara - TAM, and the symbolic script of the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA, WISH FULFILLING MANTRA, and the NEGATIVE KARMA CLEANSING MANTRA.

I met A through a mutual friend who has gotten the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT himself. A is a very nice person and although she is part of a life that enjoys a lot of attention, I felt that she’s very humble and nice. I’m writing the story now because a month after getting the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, A got an offer for an endorsement of a food company, and after that she’s about to become the face of an advocacy campaign that’s just about to come out soon.

Furthermore, her mother has taken to liking his boyfriend already and her future mother – in – law has been reaching out to her by inviting her to dinners and lunches. She said it’s all because of the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

Stories like these give so much joy that something that started as personal thing has become bigger and has benefitted a number of people. But then again the pendants are quite pricey and not everybody can afford it. For those who can’t afford it please remember that reciting the WISH FULFILLING MANTRA and NEGATIVE KARMA CLEANSING MANTRA works as well.

Incidentally, I also have some good news about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET. Both are powerful Buddhist amulet or charms. I’ve always wanted to write about it but both will need special permission from a Lama before one can I write about them. However, I recently got the permission and will be writing about them tomorrow or in the next few days.

Curing a Feng Shui Blunder Caused by a Leisure Tour

Published Marso 30, 2012 by jptan2012

In my last post before I went on a blog rest I talked about a Feng Shui blunder caused by our excitement while we’re on a vacation or a leisure trip or tour. I shared with you the bad luck that my friends and I experienced because of our innocent trip to the Ming Tombs. I also shared the story of a former officemate who went to Egypt entered a pyramid and had a series of bad luck.

I received some email inquiring what are the Feng Shui, Buddhist and/or Taoist amulets that one need to protect oneself from the negative effects of a Yin dominant place like cemeteries, tombs, morgues. I debated whether to share those amulets here because as I mentioned at the end of the post, it is better not to tempt fate and just completely avoid these Yin dominant tourist spots. While I’ll most likely share the said amulets in a future post, because a hospital is also a Yin dominant place, I believe for now it is important that everyone understands that amulets may help but nobody can tell whether it would be enough so again – IT IS BETTER NOT TO TEMPT FATE AND JUST AVOID ENTERING YIN DOMINANT PLACES. You can just simply admire it from the outside.

Having said that I would like to share with you how to cure should you accidentally enter a Yin dominant place while you’re on a trip.

First thing you can do is to go a restaurant before you go back to your hotel. Ask for a rock or sea salt. Put some on your head and throw some on your back before you go back to your hotel.

When you get back to your hotel, ask for a sea or rock salt and take a salt bath. A cup of salt in a bathtub will do. Just soak yourself for about 5 minutes. More if you want to relax, but 5 minutes is the minimum amount of time. If possible light some candle and place it beside you while you’re in the tub. Use red, yellow, orange, or pink candle. Don’t use white.

Before going to sleep recite one full mala (108 times) of the Mantra of the Medicine Buddha – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA. If you want to know more about the Medicine Buddha do read my post entitled – MEDICINE BUDDHA: A HEALER, PROVIDER, AND PROTECTOR OF BOTH THE PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL REALM.

If possible, try to go out and have some small party with your tour group.

Also, on the particular day that you made a Feng Shui blunder of entering a Yin dominant place, do sleep with the lights on that particular night.
