The Forecasted Financial Crisis of 2016 And What We Can Do About It!

Published Oktubre 3, 2016 by jptan2012

Late last year I made some predictions base on the analysis of the year’s (2016) Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart. One of the more significant predictions that I had was when I said that we might experience some financial crisis or the start of a financial crisis. The truth, I made another prediction but I would rather not discuss the other one because of it may be deemed controversial but I did write about it.

Anyway, as I said I mentioned in that forecasted financial crisis seems to be happening now. Stock is it at lowest in 7 years, with the longest streak of fall in recent history. On top of that, foreign investors or businesses are already pulling out with the President of Europe Chamber of Commerce saying that they are already pulling out of the country. Add to that that for the longest time the dollar has hit above Php 49.00 again.

Is there a reason for worry? As of now, I don’t think we should go on a panic, it definitely won’t do anything. Let’s still put our hope and trust on the government and believe that they know what they are doing. Nevertheless, it is wise to exercise prudence in spending money and also in making investments.

Feng Shui wise wearing the 9 – Eyed DZI Bead with Citrine and Pi Xiu (Pi Yao, Piyao, Pixiu, Pi Xie, Pixie) is essential. Also, displaying the 3 – Legged Toads might help.

To help deflect or minimize the effect of energy of financial problem, it is highly recommended that you carry the following Buddhist items or symbols or images that serves as an amulet – Vajrapani Ruel and / or the Kalachakra Pendant made in Gold. To gain more wisdom in managing things, especially financial matters, and to put you ahead of possible hostile competitors, wearing the image of Sakyamuni Buddha (also spelled as Shakyamuni Buddha) is highly recommended.

Chanting the following mantras are also highly recommended:

  • OM MUNI MUNI MAHA MUNI YE SOHA
  • OM MANI PADME HUM
  • OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  • OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

Furthermore, wearing the image of Bodhisattva Sangharama or other Wealth Deity Yellow Dzambhala is also highly recommended. But for this type of financial crisis, I believe one of the most effective wealth enhancing deity is Ji Gong, though not very famous wealth god called Ji Gong or Che Kong (濟公). Also spelled as Ji Kong or Che Gong. which I have written about a few years ago. You can click here to know more about him.

At the end of the day, I rally that we support the positive things that the government is doing. Realize that the government’s success should be our success also. However, we should also exercise wisdom, after all, the government is run by people who like us may be prone to errors also. So let us support but we should also let our voice be heard if you think the government is pursuing the wrong path. But in voicing our belief, first we must truly seek to understand where the government is coming from and never ever be divisive. We can have different opinions but remain in harmony.

And for a more universal cure to this concern, let us always light an incense and recite the following sutras for our government and for our world:

Published Disyembre 22, 2012 by jptan2012

TENTH, THE ROOSTER…

Will have very good financial wealth luck this year. However, the presence of the violent star in your life palace indicates that you have to be careful about losing your money. Be careful also for possible violent incidents this year.

Career wise it will also be very good for you. However, the presence of Crooked Star as indicated by the Purple Star Astrology indicates that you might have some reputation problem towards the middle of the year.

However, you will also notice that you will seldom get recognized by your efforts and that other people might get credit from your hard work. Because of this, success in terms of recognition might not be attained.

However, be happy that the Purple Flower Star Astrology or Purple Star Astrology also indicates the presence of General Power Star and the Land Relief Star. The General Power Star indicates that if you get into a problem, you will find solutions easily if you focus on your own strength, also the Land Relief Star will also give you the resources that you need to attain whatever you wish for.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong to protect you from the violent star.

Wear an image of the Maitreya Buddha (also fondly and popularly called as the Happy Fat Buddha) to cure the effects of the Crooked Star.

Wear or carry a Victory Banner to help you become always victorious.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

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.

ELEVENTH, THE DOG…

Will have a good year even if wealth luck is not very high. You have the Heaven’s Luck or Blessing star in your life palace and you’ll find yourself being bless in a lot of ways, especially when it comes to your personal life. While wealth luck is not very high, it is neither bad. In fact, you’ll still see some improvement.

The Purple Star Astrology indicates the presence of two other stars. First, the Death Amulet Star, which means that there is a possibility of death or serious illness not with the Dog itself but may be with an elderly family member.

The other star is the Haul Paddle Star, which indicates that there is going to be a big professional change in your life this year.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear a 3-Legged Toad pendant or an image of the Yellow Dzambhala as a pendant to enhance your career luck.

Wealth luck is average, however, since your life palace is flank by a Violent Star, you will have to be careful that you don’t lose this through robbery. Be careful also that you don’t get into unnecessary expenditures also.

Personal luck should be better, unless you’re unable to appease the Tai Suey.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

SEVENTH, THE HORSE…

Will have not have very ideal wealth luck this year. However, career luck might be on the swing. Meaning, this is a year where employed people born in the year of the Horse will be luckier than the one’s who are in business. The employed horse will have a more stable financial luck than the entrepreneur horse.

Also the Purple Flower Star Astrology also known as the Purple Star Astrology indicates that you have Bad Chi Star, which will have an effect on your overall luck and pull you down a little. But the Purple Star Astrology also indicates that you have the Sun Star, which is a very good star to have. This together with the Flying Star #9 (Future or Multiplying Luck Star) indicates that you somehow your inner being will indicate whether you will have a good life or a bad one.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of the Yellow Dzambhala to help you with your wealth luck.

Wear a Ruyi or an image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (Guan Gong) to help you with your business. Wearing an image of Sun Wukong or wearing a Kalachakra Pendant will also help you deal with the Bad Chi Star.

The Kalachakra symbol is one of the most powerful protection symbol in Buddhism. It actually consists of ten syllable mantra, with it symbolic script condensed into one. The mantra itself is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, the mantra of the Kalachakra is never chanted without the mantra OM AH HUM. Making the complete mantra of Kalachakra - OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. This is the reason why I decided to put the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM on top of the Kalachakra symbol. As mentioned this is a very powerful protection symbol and can be likened to the Scapular of the Catholics. In fact, you'll seldom see a Tibetan Monk with wearing the symbol of the Kalachakra on their body. It may be hidden but most likely they have it somewhere on their body. But you'll never see them have the symbolic scripts tattooed because it is considered extremely bad luck to have a mantra tattooed on your body.

Wear or carry the Wish Fulfilling and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra to help you enhance your good karma and clear out all your negative karma.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success.

EIGHTH, THE SHEEP/GOAT…

Will have to be very careful about their health luck. You’ll find yourself sicklier or more prone in getting into accidents.

Wealth luck is not very ideal either, and you have to be very careful in getting into big business transactions.

There is also no significant good change in your career life, and you have to be very careful about being complacent because a simple mistake can be detrimental.

What’s worst is that the illness star that flies into your life palace is further aggravated by the negative stars that are indicated by the Purple Star Astrology. There are several of these stars, and they are the Flying Chaste Star, which may make you more prone to accidents. Also you have in your life palace the Earth Death Star and the Earth Door Star, this star indicates that they may be death of a loved one and a possibility of grave illness.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear a jade Wulou or an image of the Medicine Buddha as a pendant to protect you from the illness star and the Flying Chaste Star.

Wear an image of the Yellow Dzambhala or Sun Wukong to help you with your wealth luck.

Wear an image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (Guan Gong) to help you with your career luck and help you with your business.

Wear an image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Yin or the Kalachakra as pendant to protect you from the Earth Death Star and Earth Door Star.

NINTH, THE MONKEY…

Will see an easing from arguments and relationship problems. However, I’m afraid that all is not well because this time the Monkey will take a beating with their health luck.

Wealth luck is also going to be a bit of a challenge. It will feel like that ‘you’re swimming against the current’ and it will exhaust putting more toll against your health.

While there will be lesser arguments, you still need to watch out for your relationships with the people you work with. Do have less talk and more action. Do not just bark you have to bite a little.

Monkeys who are married to a snake, especially Monkeys born in 1968 should face the reality that they are married to a person who might not be totally honest with them. Love and respect your husband but take a look at what’s your worth so that your spouse won’t feel that they can get away with their infidelity with you.

The Hanged Spirit Star as indicated by the Purple Star Astrology might make you feel insecure further aggravating your relationship problems. You have to remember that you can share your feelings with your family members. An Ox family member may be especially helpful.

Be careful also of the Painful Knot Star also indicated by the Purple flower Star Astrology, which may bring in a lot of gossips and might put you in a compromising situation.

However, the Country Wealth Star of the Purple Star Astrology and the Multiplying Star of the Flying Star method indicates that you will get some of the help you will need.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of the Medicine Buddha with mantra or a jade Wulou pendant.

Wear an image of the Yellow Dzambhala or the 3-Legged Toad as a pendant to help you with your wealth luck.

A married Monkey should tie an amethyst geode on the foot of their bed and wear a double happiness symbol pendant.

Wear the Ruyi to give you more authority.

Wear an image of Sun Wukong to help you in your business pursuits.

To counter the effects of the Hanged Spirit Star wear an image of the Maitreya Buddha (also popularly and fondly called as the Happy Fat Buddha).

This is from my personal collection. I wear this pendant everyday. In choosing an image of the Happy Fat Buddha to be worn as a pendant, always look for the face. Make sure that it has happy jolly face.

2013 – Year of the Water Snake Chinese Animal Zodiac Feng Shui Forecast: Dragon & Snake (Part 4)

Published Disyembre 22, 2012 by jptan2012

FIFTH, THE DRAGON…

Will have a generally good year. It is also a year where in scholastic pursuit or scholastic approach to things will help you reap success and wealth. You’re also flank by the Flying Star #9 meaning what you sow is what you will also reap. Do more good things and you will also be rewarded with more blessing.

Money or wealth luck will be smooth but you have to more open to advice coming from your family. Do not dupe yourself into thinking that you know everything.

Romance luck may be good for single dragons; however, those who are partnered should safeguard themselves from a possible third party. Whether you’re a single dragon or a married or partner dragon you should be thankful for the presence Crimson Chamber Star, as indicated by the Purple Flower Star Astrology, because this star will enhance the positive effects of the Romance Star but at the same time it will help safe guard the relationship of the dragons who are already in a relationship.

You are also partially affected by the Argumentative Star thus it will be good to take control of your temper.

The 37, 63 and 71 years old Dragon should be careful with their health.

The Tai Suey is also in the same sector of the sector of your life palace. You’ll have to be careful not to offend the Tai Suey.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of the 3-legged toad or of the Yellow Dzambhala to enhance your wealth luck.

For single dragons wear a pair of mandarin ducks or the symbol of double happiness pendant.

Wear the Ksitigarbha Fireball as a pendant.

Wear a jade wu lou or holy gourd or an image of the Medicine Buddha pendant. You can also wear the symbolic script of the Medicine Buddha.

This is a sample of a Medicine Buddha pendant. This is similar to the one released by Lillian Too. Photo lifted in Google images.

Wear a Piyao either as a bracelet or as a pendant to appease the Tai Suey.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

SIXTH, THE SNAKE…

Will have to remember that you have a turbulent but potentially a good year. The stars are in your favor, however, the presence of the Tai Suey in your life palace will have to be taken care. You do this by sincerely being good and nice. You can also avoid the wrath of the Tai Suey by carrying or wearing an image of the Piyao (also spelled or called Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu).

Also, some of the Snakes had very financially rewarding 2012. However, most of these are indirect wealth in the sense that they had this because of the big help or big influence of other people. You might still have that, however, the Snake that forgot and become swell headed will see themselves taking a financial dip this year. That is simply the law of Karma working as indicated by the future blessing’s star.

The Snake born in the year 1965 will have to learn to be humble, among all the other people born in the snake year, it is the one born in 1965 that has the highest potential to have good luck, but also has the highest potential to have bad luck, this is because you are greatly affected by the multiplying star thus making whatever you do or think multiply several fold.

All snake should be careful with their health and do watch out for possible accidents.

The Purple Flower Star Astrology or Purple Star Astrology also indicates that you have the Hidden Death Star. Despite of the name of the star, the star no effect on death, however, it has something to do with your family relationship. This star might lead to frequent arguments. Also, if you’re a married snake and are living with your in-laws, remember that you have to be humble in your manner in dealing with them. You have to be careful also because you have the potential to get into infidelity, worse you might set your eyes with one of your in-laws. Remember that this is a disgraceful act!!!

Again, for the Snake born in 1965, you will have the tendency to have a big fight with an Ox born in 1973. Without generalizing, the stars indicate that most likely it’s the Snake who is at fault. Remember that the Ox is only defending his/her family.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Piyao worn as a bracelet or pendant.

Always get a Pi Yao pendant that has an active stance.

Always get a Pi Yao pendant that has an active stance.

Wear an image of Kuan Yin or Green Tara or Ji Gong to help you remain humble. Wearing a prayer wheel pendant, and putting several prayer wheels in your office, room, and home will also help.

Ji Gong: An Eccentric Buddhist Monk that Became a Taoist Wealth God

Published Marso 19, 2012 by jptan2012

Today, allow me to share with you another powerful, though not very famous, wealth god called Ji Gong or Che Kong (濟公). Also spelled as Ji Kong or Che Gong.

Ji Gong is known as the ‘Legendary Monk with a Magical Fan’. This is because he is usually portrayed as having a fan and sometimes with a bottle of wine.

I entitled this post as – JI GONG: AN ECCENTRIC BUDDHIST MONK THAT BECAME A TAOIST WEALTH GOD – because Ji Gong in reality was a Buddhist monk, was expelled from his monastic life and later on became a Taoist wealth god. The irony here, is that he’s not considered as a Buddha or a Bodhisattva in Buddhism, and it was only after the Taoist has adopted Ji Gong as a deity did the Buddhist started including him in their Koans.

(A Koan, for lack of a better description, is like a form of Sutra. It’s a fundamental part of the history and lore of Zen Buddhism and it consists of stories, dialogues, questions and statements, the meaning of which are said to be understandable through intuition or lateral thinking. )

Ji Gong was born to a famous and rich family during China’s Southern Song Dynasty. His father is a highly respected ‘businessman’ and military advisor. Ji Kong, the only son, and whose real name is Li Xiuyuan (李修元), came late in the family. His parents were actually told by a respected Feng Shui consultant that they don’t have descendant’s luck and that they will never have any children. This cause great sadness to both his parents, and considered this as one of their greatest misfortune. Since they are a religious couple they decided to make sure that they would go on various pilgrimage to different temples to ask for child.

Like most Chinese then and now, they don’t really make any distinction between Buddhism and Taoism and they would visit temples from both religions even if they were really Taoist.

It is said that in one of their pilgrimage to a Buddhist temple, they entered the hall of the 500 Arhats. Whereby the image of one of the Arhat, Mahakasyapa, fell off from the altar. It was taken as a sign that at that moment Mahakasyapa’s energy or spirit left ‘his’ image.

Not long after that, Ji Kong’s mom found out she was pregnant. They remembered the incident in the temple and believed that the baby in her womb was a gift from the Buddhas. They even began to think, that what she was carrying in her womb is the reincarnation of the Arhat Mahakasyapa!

At the age of 18, Li Xiuyuan decided to go to Hangzhou (a province in China), to enter the monastic life at the famous temple called Ling Yin Temple. After several years of studying Buddhism, he was finally ordained as a Buddhist monk and named Dao Ji Chan Shi. He was then normally called Dao Ji, thus this has become another common name of Ji Kong.

His monastic life proved to be short but memorable. Being born from a very rich family, he’s used to eating meat and drinking wine, and he was unable to give this up when he became a monk. Furthermore, he started showing some eccentricity and it is believed that he is slightly mad. However, they all agree that he is kind hearted and generous. Nevertheless, because Zen Buddhists strictly prohibits eating of meat and drinking of wine, they really didn’t have much choice but to expel him from the monastery.

After being expelled from his monastic life, Dao Ji or Ji Kong never really bothered to search for another monastery that can adopt him. He just roam on the streets and is often thought of as beggar monk, because he really didn’t gave up his Buddhist robes either.

His eccentricity continued to manifest on the streets, but so his kindness and compassionate heart. It is said, the even he looks poor he never really begged for money, and it is often a wonder as to where he gets money for food. Some say that it could be part of his inheritance, but if it were from his inheritance, it’s a mystery were he kept his wealth.

However, after a while, Dao Ji or Ji Kong started to manifest another eccentricity. Since he has a compassionate heart, he would often approach beggars on the streets and other poor families. He would listen to them, crack a joke, then murmur a prayer, after which he’ll use his fan to fan them a little. Soon after these incidents the recipient of his kindness and weird ritual will come to a good fortune. He thus earned a reputation for being a Buddhist magician, which, in turn earned him the title Ji Gong Huoto, which means the Living Buddha Ji Gong. Ji is derived from his Buddhist name Dao Ji, Gong, is a respect for a powerful elderly, and Huoto literally means living Buddha.

At his old age, Ji Kong was adopted by another monastery. This is where he passed away on the 14th day of the 5th Lunar month. Right after his death, Taoist immediately adopted him as their deity, and it is said the he continuously manifest his compassionate and magical powers to every one who keeps his image and go to him.

His image is usually pictured as a monk in rugged clothing, holding a bottle of wine and a ‘magical’ fan. He is always shown with a smiling face, because he has a very happy nature. Although, he is usually pictured wearing a hat with the word Fo, which means ‘Buddha’, Buddhist never really considered him as Buddha or a Bodhisattva. However, seeing how much he is revered in Taoism, Buddhist did include him in their Koans, some sub-sects even considers him as an Arhat.

This is a jade Ji Gong pendant. It’s very similar to the one that I have.

Having an image of Ji Kong at home, and wearing his image as a pendant is a sure way to continuously tap into his blessings of wealth.
