Can Water ‘Infused’ With Words and Thoughts Affect Us?

Published Setyembre 6, 2013 by jptan2012

When I was younger my parents would always bring jugs or bottles of water to the temple and leave it at the altar for three days, get it back, and they’ll have us, their children, drink it. They will always say that the water from the temple will makes us healthier, wiser, and also protect us. In fact, whenever we’re sick they’ll make sure that we’ll drink what I called ‘Temple Water’.

Soon the jugs and bottles were replaced by store bought mineral water or bottled water. I never understood the concept of doing this until I was already into Feng Shui and a real Buddhist student. A monk told me that leaving water on the altar would make energize and bless the water with their mantras and prayers. Furthermore, the water surrounded by mantras and images of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas will absorb the positive energy of the images and the sounds of the prayers and mantras, turning the water into a blessed healing water or energized water.hiddenmessages

My belief on this matter was half hearted given that I don’t really see how simple images can have an affect on a non – living thing, in this case, the bottled water. Until a few years back I came across with a book called THE HIDDEN MESSAGES IN WATER, which was written by the controversial Japanese author and entrepreneur Masuro Emoto.

I say controversial because Mr. Masaru Emoto’s studies are widely criticized as much as it is widely accepted. I’m not here to argue whether his studies are legit or not, but rather I would like to present them to you as to how I understood it.

According to Mr. Masaru Emoto, water has the ability to absorb our thoughts, but more than that, water has the ability to ‘understand’ (my word) the words written and ‘shown’ to it. When exposed to different thoughts or words, positive or negative, the water will then absorb the energy and it will change its properties. I will not talk about how he did his research, but rather will post some links later for you to better understand it.

Some of the respected scientific psychic in the world like Caroline Myss believes in Mr. Masuro Emoto’s research, however, there are a lot of scientist who doesn’t believe in him and has criticized the lack of details in how he did the research.water20pics1

But as I said, I’m not here to argue whether his research is true or not. Nevertheless, if true, his studies will confirm what Buddhists and Taoists, even Catholics, has believed in so many years. Base on Mr. Masuro Emoto’s studies it is really possible to make water holy.

I’m writing this post  because on my next post I will write about a reader’s testimony that is related to Mr. Masuro Emoto’s research and the age-old Buddhist practice of chanting mantra over water.

Precautions to Take During the Hungry Ghost Month

Published Hulyo 20, 2012 by jptan2012

There are some things that you should never do or you should totally avoid doing during the Hungry Ghost Month, and these are the things that I would like to share now.

First, DON’T EVER OPEN A NEW BUSINESS! Doing this will definitely make the business success hard to achieve, if this is impossible to avoid, you should consult a Taoist and/or Feng Shui expert to get an auspicious date and time and so that they can assist you in doing some protection rituals that you’d need.

DON’T MAKE ANY MAJOR DECISION, SIGN A CONTRACT, START A BIG PROJECT during the Hungry Ghost Month. Again doing so will make everything problematic and you’ll risk not finishing the project or get into a legal problem.

Taoist priests and Buddhist monks says that ghosts in general like to ‘walk’ in dark corners and near the walls. Taking this into consideration you should NEVER WALK IN THE DARK, SPECIALLY IF IT’S NEAR A WALL. Doing so may have you encountering hungry ghosts that may inflict harm on you. Always remember that it is better to be in well-lit places and crowded places.

DON’T EVER MESS WITH THE HUNGRY GHOST OFFERINGS! I’ve discussed about the different rituals, which involves some offerings for the hungry ghosts. One should never play with these foods or offerings. Doing so might make the hungry ghost think that you are challenging or competing with them and they might attack you and cause some harm. Children should always be reminded of this rule.

DON’T GO SWIMMING! As mentioned in an earlier post about the EFFECTS OF THE DREADED HUNGRY GHOST MONTH, accidents increases during the hungry ghost month. It is said that bodies of water are an easier gateway for the hungry ghosts because in Taoism and Buddhism bodies represent the crossing over the spirit, and because of this hungry ghosts will usually look for bodies of water to help them cross over. A swimming pool is considered as a body of water. I personally have a cousin who died of drowning during a Hungry Ghost Month, and one of the most celebrated drowning cases in Cebu happened in a 2 feet deep pool during a Hungry Ghost Month.

DON’T GO HOME LATER THAT 10PM. ‘Witching Hour’ in Feng Shui and Taoism really happens when completing a 12 animal sign cycle. This happens between 10PM and 11:15PM. So it is extremely advisable for you to go home before 10PM. Generally speaking you should be home before dark, but if this is unavoidable do your best to be home before 10PM.

AVOID LONG ROAD TRIPS OR TRAVELING BY PLANE OR SHIP/BOAT. It is said that one is more susceptible to the effects of the Hungry Ghost the farther they are from their home, which has imbued your energy and thus has created a protection chi. The farther you are from home the more susceptible you are and they usually hit you at a time where there is an increase risk like traveling long road trips, or by plane and ship.

AVOID GOING ABROAD AND STAYING IN HOTELS. Depending on the hotel, the room may be considered a Yin place if the hotel guests are not as frequent as it ought to be. It is very hard to gauge this unless you know somebody really well in the hotel who can tell you the info that you need. If a guest does not frequently habit the hotel room, it is considered as Yin place and you have to assume that it is a place where hungry ghost will stay during the Hungry Ghost Month. Staying in such a room will give you nightmares and bad luck. If this is unavoidable, it advisable that you bring or ask for rock salt and sea salt with you and scatter it in the room. Also, bring some natural quartz crystals or amethyst will help ensure that the room is infused with yang energy.
