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.

Watching the ISIS Violent Videos Creates Negative Chi, But Don’t Be Indifferent!

Published Pebrero 5, 2015 by jptan2012

There has been a lot of ISIS videos that was released on the net and all of them are violent! I guess that’s their intent to shock the world and fear them. I accidentally saw one of their videos and the first thing that occurred to me is that these are works of the devil! But more than that, I also realized that  watching the videos sends off a lot of negative energies. So it is best to avoid watching these videos.

However, refusing to watch these videos doesn’t mean that we should be indifferent. In fact, being indifferent contributes to the violence that they physically act upon. We can read the articles and most of all, we should all say a little prayer for those who became their victims whether directly or indirectly (e.g. family members of those who were beheaded or burned, people who have to see the violent act, innocent children brainwashed to kill adults, etc.), but more than that we should say a prayer for those who masterminded and who did those evil acts, yes, we should include them in our prayers.

I also would like to share a short article I found on the net that also confirms that we shouldn’t be watching these violent videos. Please click here.

 

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

Published Mayo 20, 2014 by jptan2012

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

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

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

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

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