Top 10 Things to do if Your House is Haunted!

Published Agosto 8, 2018 by jptan2012

I strongly believe that there are houses that are haunted. I personally have encountered several such house. And as I said in a previous article, it is not really the haunting like seeing ghosts, light turning on and off by themselves, or moving objects and curious sounds that’s the scariest. It is how these negative chi affects us that’s scarier.

Aside from the physical hauntings, it is how they affect our thinking, mood, personality, and luck that is scarier that the actual haunting. Or in some rare cases, how they try to possess some people.

So, what are the things you need to do if you believe your house or office is haunted.

  1. First, do not try to banish them on your own. If not done properly they will become stronger or will get angry. You might also start to attract more negative chi.
  2. Light some incense as a peace offering so that you can live in harmony. But do not be submissive to them.
  3. Ignore them, attention gives them energy. Fear gives them energy.
  4. Put an image of a Chung Kwei (made of black tourmaline/black jade/onyx/gold) in your house.

    Chung Kwei Black Jade

    This is a rare black jade pendant image of Chung Kwei. Was fortunate enough to find one in Beijing, China in a small shop. Remember in choosing a Chong Kwei or Chung Kwei or Zhung Kwei or Zhong Kwei, always get a something that’s made of a black stone or gold. Otherwise, it might not be very effective.

  5. Put a Vajrapani Ruel or Surangama Mantra Amulet or both inside your house.
  6. If there’s a baby or an elderly make sure they carry with them one or two (depending on the strength of the spirit) of the following with them all the time: gold Kalachakra pendant, Vajrapani Ruel, Surangama Mantra Amulet, Special Gold Piyao.
  7. If you suspect somebody is being possessed or is being psychologically or emotionally manipulated or influenced by the spirits let them wear 2 or 3 of the following: VAJRAPANI RUEL, SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET, SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO, GOLD KALACHAKRA PENDANT, GOLD OR HOLY JADE PENDANT IMAGE OF BODHISATTVA SANGHARAMA (also known as Qie Lan Pu Sa, Kuan Kong, Guan Gong, Guan Yu, Kuan Yu, Guan Te Yah, Kuan Te Yah), GOLD or BLACK TOURMALINE or BLACK JADE or ONYX or BLACK OBSIDIAN PENDANT IMAGE OF CHUNG KWEI. Please note that some stores will say that an image of a Chung Kwei is real obsidian or onyx or tourmaline, but real ones will definitely not cost you below US$150.00.

    Kuan Kong Pendant2

    Kuan Kong also spelled as Guan Gong is a warrior god. He is a very good protector and wealth god.

  8. Always make sure that you put on bright lights.
  9. Play happy music, make sure there is always yang energy but do not be noisy.
  10. Try to have somebody perform a puja for the spirits.

Understanding more about Hungry Ghosts and the Hungry Ghost Month or Hungry Ghost Festival will also help.

Since this may be the last time I’m writing about the Hungry Ghost Month on this blog, I thought I’ll put some of the highlights that all of you have to remember.

  1. Hungry Ghost Month happens every 7th Lunar Month of the year.
  2. During this time, the gates of hell are opened to let the hungry ghosts in hell roam and have their food.
  3. Remember, that hungry ghosts are sometimes in this world and not in hell. The said hungry ghosts who lives amongst us are strengthen.
  4. During this time, yin energy or negative chi (energy) is pervasive.
  5. It is not good for you to move to a new house, new office, new work during this time.
  6. It is advisable not to go to any yin places during the hungry ghost month. Yin places are cemetery, funeral, and hospitals.
  7. Do not undergo any medical procedures during this time.
  8. It is highly advisable to put some food outside of your house so that the hungry ghost will not go inside your house to look for food.
  9. Make sure to make offerings to your dead relatives.
  10. Do not go out in the evening.
  11. Do not travel.
  12. Do not pick up a coin on the street.
  13. Do not look if you hear somebody calling you ‘psst…’ or if the voice calling you is unfamiliar.
  14. Do not goof around so much in the evening.
  15. Do not tap anybody on the shoulder.
  16. Remember that even if you have the good stars of the flying stars this could be tempered or ruined by the pervading yin chi of the month.
  17. If you have negative stars this will definitely be aggravated by the pervasive yin energy of the hungry ghost month.
  18. Remember negative effects of Feng Shui blunders such as poison arrows, having sa septic tank inside or in front of your house, crossing or walking under the stairs, etc., are doubled, tripled, or greatly heightened this time.
  19. Do not sign any contract during this time.
  20. Avoid partying in your house.
  21. Avoid leaving food in your room, specially left over food.
  22. If you feel a presence, a negative energy or chi, ignore them. Do not attempt to cleanse them or get rid of them if you are not familiar how to do it properly. You might attract more and encourage them to stay.
  23. When inside the movie house or theater avoid seating of the front row. It is said that the spirits are attracted to the yang energy of a play, concert, movie and will stay on the front row.
  24. Do not leave your clothes outside of your house in the evening. Especially clothes of baby or young children. The spirit might attached themselves to it.
  25. Make sure you cover the eyes of dolls, human figurines, the hungry ghost might possess them.
  26. Don’t drive too fast. Be very conscious. If you hit something or somebody, make sure first that you did hit a living thing. This might be a ploy of a spirit to ‘hitch’ a ride and attach itself to your car or to you.
  27. Do not look into a body of water in the evening.
  28. Do not go swimming.
  29. Do not spit on the street or on random places. You shouldn’t be doing this anyway whether it is hungry ghost month or not.
  30. Most importantly if this is preceded by an eclipse whether lunar eclipse or solar eclipse know that it is an ill omen about the coming hungry ghost month.

As such, it is highly advisable that one remains protected during this time.

The best protections are the following: Chung Kwei pendant made of real / genuine black tourmaline or onyx or obsidian or black jade or gold; Vajrapani Ruel with gold Kalachakra pendant; gold Bodhisattva Sangharama pendant (also known as Kuan Kong, Guan Gong, Kuan Te Yah, Guan Te Yah, Guan Yu, Guan Yu, Qie Lan Pu Sa).

For those who are haunted it is also very good to have a SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO with the Chung Kwei or Vajrapani Ruel and Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Remember also that this may be not a complete list. It is better to read all my other posts about the Hungry Ghost Month to get a better understand of it by checking on the category: https://sanaakosirickylee.wordpress.com/category/kuwento-tungkol-hungry-ghost-month/

2018 Year of the Earth Dog Feng Shui Forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac Signs (Chinese Horoscope)

Published Disyembre 14, 2017 by jptan2012

earth dog2The whole process of coming up with a forecast is a very tedious process. Although I cross – reference the important factors with my Guru Lama and/or Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong, the whole process of coming up with the computations, the analysis, and eventually is single journey on my part. A lot of you have been writing to me, sending me messages and a few of you have been calling asking for my forecast, especially the forecast of the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiacs (Chinese Horoscope), but please understand, as mentioned, this for me is a single journey, I don’t have a team who do the analysis and the computations and the writing for me, I do everything on my own, albeit with the guidance of my Guru Lama and Feng Shui teacher.

I also would like to thank all of you who have written to me to share with me how much this forecast has guided you, and how you think that it is accurate. Nevertheless, I want to remind everybody that these forecasts can’t be 100% accurate because at the end, there are things that will really depend on your “Basket of Elements” base on your Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart, and also there are things that will depend on your karma and with the Feng Shui of your house and office. However, you can certainly use this forecast as a guide.

It is also quite important that you read the 2018 YEAR OF THE EARTH DOG FENG SHUI FORECAST BASE ON BAZI CHART, FLYING STARS FORMULA, AND 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA Part 1 and Part 2. This will help you a better overview of what is really in-store for the year. And as mentioned, base on the chart of the year, there is an absence of metal which represents money luck / wealth luck / financial luck of the year. So, for everybody, there might be some money-making hindrances. To avoid being a victim of this unfortunate occurrence, and to help ensure that you continue to have wealth luck, it is extremely advisable for you to wear a SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO (also spelled or called as Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pi Xie) or the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET. Since there is no such thing as excessive activation of wealth luck this year, you can actually wear both.

Inner Chi and Life Chi is also weak for everybody, if these two are weak, then it is easy for one to give up and to just not fight for what one wants. Again, everybody is affected, and so it is extremely beneficial for everybody to wear an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store as a gold pendant. EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA is also known as Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa or Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva.

ksitigarbha statue

Again, if using an image of Ksitigarbha at home, I prefer to use the one with the crown, unless, he is placed the ancestral altar.

In cases that I mentioned that Inner Chi or Life Chi is strong it is still in relatively speaking in terms of its relationship to the year.

Lastly, the good news is that we have the Jiang Xin, an auspicious star that brings wealth and recognition, and aside from wealth, you will need to recognize for you to have more advantage in tapping into your wealth luck. However, due to the absence of the metal element, it is extremely good for you to activate this star so you can tap into its power. You can do this by wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA Combined Amulet.

Of course, we all have to wear more gold also regardless of your “Basket of Elements”!

The three above mentioned amulets actually form the Holy Trinity of Amulets for the year.

And like last year, I will heed the request of my readers, to as much as possible to put photos of the amulets in all the animal signs. In the previous years, I will only put a picture in one of the animal signs since some of these are repeatedly mentioned, however, as my readers pointed out they sometimes jump the other animal signs that doesn’t concern them, so it’ll be better if I just put the link and photos in all the signs.

Also, as requested, I have streamed line the recommended cures. Before I always want to give you a wide array of cures or enhancers, but a lot of you have been complaining that this becomes confusing and so now I only recommend those I have really used lately and those that I know will really work. In this case, you will notice that I repeat a lot of cures. Furthermore, you may notice that sometimes I recommend a different for the same affliction. This is because I consider the “Basket of Elements” of the animal zodiac we are talking about.

One thing that you have to note that Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year) doesn’t come in until February 16, 2018. This means that there is ‘no spring’ this year, the change of energies will be quite abrupt. However, if you notice a lot of the energies next year will be a similar to the energy of the last three months of the lunar year of 2017. ‘No Spring’ means no renewed energies which is especially needed to attract wealth luck / money luck / financial luck. This together with the lack of metal of the year is actually quite a bad thing to happen. But I not a doomsayer, and there is no use knowing these things if we cannot remedy it. What you should do is to create spring into your life. You do this by putting fresh flowers with various colors around your house and office on February 4. If you have an altar, place some flowers on your altar also and a small bowl of clean water. Do this before 8am, and remove the water from the altar by 5pm, and use it to water some plants or a plant, or throw it on your front yard. Make sure you remove the flowers before it wilts. You can use roses, but make sure you take away all the thorns, otherwise this will invite a hurtful relationship throughout the year.

Now let me go to my forecast for each of the 12 Chinese Horoscope signs (Chinese Animal Zodiac)


RAT

RAT Chinese Zodiac

General Traits: Artistic, imaginative, creative, talented, charming, resourceful, opportunist, ambitious, lively, pleasure-seeking, problem solver, resilient, sometimes unscrupulous, selfish, short tempered, spendtrift, insecure, usually successful, tend to gossip.

While I don’t’ like to start off with the negative, unfortunately, I always start off the forecast with the first animal sign. Normally, in a forecast using the Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart), the Flying Stars Formula, and the 24 Mountain Stars Formula, some will be bad and some will be good. I’m really sorry to say that it is not the case for the people born in the year of the Rat. As much as I look for a positive sign, a positive star, a positive computation or analysis, I can’t seem to find one. For the rat, aside from my Feng Shui teacher, I also went to ask other Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui consultants, I even called up the daughter of a very famous Feng Shui expert, but as fate would have it, we all have the same prognosis – THIS IS NOT A GOOD YEAR FOR PEOPLE BORN UNDER THE SIGN OF THE RAT!

Why?

The Bazi Chart, the Flying Stars Formula, and the 24-Mountain Stars Formula all shows negative readings or negative stars. It is only Guru Lama who has something positive to offer, and he said we are forgetting about karma. He said, karma plays an important role, and a good karma can offer so much protection. Furthermore, he added that prayers especially if we have faith will definitely work and offer not only protection but also good energies or good luck. Lastly, we still have the amulets that can certainly help us.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. First, allow me share with you my analysis for people born under the year of the rat.

I believe the keywords for the rat is take it slow but put it hard work and determination. The Rat faces a tremendous number of afflictions this year, but do not fight it but rather have a quiet acceptance and then just rise above the situation would be my advice. First, the Rat has a weakened Spirit Chi and Life Chi and Inner Chi. A weakened Spirit Chi means you have to constantly remind yourself how being spiritual has worked for you in the past, because this year you might find yourself questioning your faith and belief in the higher being. Weakened Life Chi and Inner Chi means you might feel insecure and without self-confidence. You will have to learn to trust amulets rather than continue fighting the flow of energies.

The interaction of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog’s elements with the elements of the Rat are in quite hostile. As mentioned, Spiritual Chi is low, and to address this concern it is very important for you to wear an image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE as a gold pendant. This cure will also address the concern the low Inner Chi and Life Chi but it will still be good to wear a the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS & LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET, to help you survive the year.Ksitigarbha

Like any other signs, and like everybody else, you will have to increase your metal energy. You do this by wearing more gold! Having the VAJRAPANI RUEL will also help increase positive thought and welcome positive energies, and you will definitely need this a lot.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

The most dreaded star of the Flying Star Formula afflicts people born under the sign of the Rat. While the #5 Flying Star, which is also known as the 5 Yellow Star (Five Yellow Star) or Wu Wang, can bring all sorts of havoc to those born in the year of the Rat. In fact, being afflicted with this star will affect all aspects of your life, especially the weakest part of your life. It can cause financial havoc, or tragic accidents or even relationship problems. Some people say that the Wu Wang embodies all the negative stars of the Flying Stars Formula. The star could also turn away supporters and friends. This means that this year that you will have to be really cautious, while the star is not as strong as the Wu Wang of 2016 when it afflicted people born on the year of the Ox. It is still quite strong than the previous years. In fact, for some reason the 5-Yellow Star has been quite strong for the last three years. So, people under the sign of the Rat will definitely have to deal with this. The best way to deal with this is to wear a pendant of a gold FIVE ELEMENT PAGODA! This is the only cure for this star, and since it is quite strong, one should wear the 5-ELEMENT PAGODA with a gold KALACHAKRA pendant.

The Rat is also sitting on the Natural Disaster Star of the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. While this star normally doesn’t have any effect because of the weakened state of the Rat, this star could wreak havoc to a person by increasing its chances of going through an accident. This star will put you at “wrong place at the wrong time”. The good news is you can easily protect yourself from this star either thru one of the following: (1) WEARING A GOLD PENDANT IMAGE OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA (Earth Store Bodhisattva / Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa); (2) WEARING A GOLD KALACHAKRA PENDANT; (3) carry a VAJRAPANI RUEL.

You can also constantly chant the following mantras everyday:

  1. OM AMI DEWA HRIH
  2. OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  3. TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHINISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT

As if all these are not enough, the Rat is also afflicted with the Three Killings, and while it is easy to dealt with this star, and I’m not normally worried about this star, again the weakened state of the Rat will make it more susceptible to the negative effects of this star. The effect of this star is to bring major damage by way of three losses. It the past, I observe that these 3 losses are usually wealth, health, relationship. But it can be any other aspects of your life. To protect oneself from it, you can carry the THREE CELESTIAL GUARDIANS or wear three SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

3 Celestial

Admittedly, its difficult to find a ‘3-Celestial Guardian’ Pendant. A key chain will do. However, that’s also the reason why I designed my WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT with the 3-Celestial Guardian at the back.

I said that a Rat should also work hard and this should help in making things better. However, if success comes to you it will be followed by malicious jealous people, which may cause the lack of recognition and/or financial recognition for you. To guard yourself from this, you should definitely activate your Jiang Xing, and you can do this by carrying with you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

Looking at the Bazi Chart, the health luck of a Rat should be good. However, all the negative stars from the other formulas will definitely take a toll on the mental health of a Rat. Thus, it will be good for a Rat to have the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET and an AMETHYST worn either as a bracelet of pendant or a ring. This is especially true for the 46 and 58 years – old Rats. If you don’t have the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET, you can also wear the MEDICINE BUDDHA PENDANT and also chant the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA:

TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDANZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

Illness Suppression Amulet3

NOTE: THIS IS THE OLD ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. THE NEW ENHANCED ONE IS IN A METAL CASE. The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Furthermore, the disharmonious “Basket of Elements” of the Rat also brings in a lot of negative energies, thus it is best to be protected with the LOTUS DIPAMKARA AMULET. This is a special amulet made of jade and consecrated to Dipamkara Buddha (Dipankara Buddha) and is only recommended for the Rat.

Wealth luck is generally bad for the year, but amongst the Rats, it is the 58 and 34-year-old Rat that will have some edge when it comes to wealth luck or money luck or financial luck. It is the 46-year old Rats that needs to take the most caution. But in the end, all Rats should learn that money might be a little elusive this year. To remedy this, I highly recommend either or both the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.

 


OX

Ox Chinese Zodiac

Very intelligent, logic and clear thinking, calm but stubborn, independent, trusting, industrious, deep and original in thought, reliable, a good leader, intolerant, peace loving.

While it is not perfect, people born under the sign of the Ox will enjoy a good year ahead. This may not be in terms of wealth luck or money luck, but they will definitely have personal and professional success, if they rise above their own temper. In fact, this year the Ox’s biggest enemy will be themselves, especially their temper. And this temper might destroy even their personal relationships.

Inner Chi and Life Chi are both very good, the only thing that is weak is Spiritual Chi, but most Ox has a strong foundation on their faith so they won’t really get affected by this right away. Nevertheless, it is good to protect oneself by wearing a gold pendant of the image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE (also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa).Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva

The Ox might also be a little prone to negative energies thrown to them by jealous people, and they also might be a little susceptible to the negative energies of the year. This may cause some bad lucks and it is advisable that one should be protected by the VAJRAPANI RUEL. Furthermore, CHANTING THE MANTRA OF BODHISATTVA VAJRAPANI should also really help.

Vajrapani Bodhisattva Mantra: OM VAJRAPANI HUM

One of the biggest concern for people born under the sign of the Ox, and perhaps the only major concern aside from the wealth luck concern that affects everybody is that the #3 Argumentative Star afflicts the Ox this year. This star brings in a lot of fighting, gossip, tension, stress that may lead to the destruction of relationships or even court cases. In extreme cases, it might bring hostile fighting involving knives and guns. Make sure that you protect yourself from this energy by wearing a deep RED STONE like RUBY or GARNET. You can wear this either as pendant, ring, earrings, or even as a bracelet. You can also WEAR AN APPLE PENDANT and this should really deflect this negative energy. Furthermore, the VAJRAPANI RUEL is a very powerful amulet to deflect the negative effects of this star.  Having the SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET should also bring in a harmonious energy into your life.

One of the best news is that the Ox sits on the Big Auspiciousness Star of the 24 Mountain Stars, this is a very powerful star brings in success and wealth. We really need to activate this star because this star also brings in wealth and we all need to attract wealth luck this year in any possible way we can get it, and wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET should activate the Big Auspiciousness Star. It is important that this amulet should be in a metal case this year.

The Ox also sits on the Annual Killing Star of the 24-Mountain Stars Formula. This may create some personal problems in your life that will lead to health concerns. However, you can easily protect yourself from the effect of this star by wearing a GOLD KALACHAKRA PENDANT.

kalachakra gold pendant2

This is a Kalachakra pendant released by Lillian Too. I really love this pendant but find it too expensive. The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

The Ox is also in a confrontational position against the Tai Sui (Tai Suey / Grand Duke Jupiter) and offending the Tai Suey can be really bad. But simply having a Piyao, especially the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO should be enough to appease the Tai Sui.

While the 21 and 81 years old Ox should be cautious of their age, it is the 45 and 57 years old Ox that needs to take the most caution. They will have to protect themselves by wearing an image of the MEDICINE BUDDHA or by wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. Likewise, RECITING THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA (download The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata)and/or CHANTING THE MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA should really help also.

Medicine Buddha Mantra: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

medicine buddhaBecause of the strong inner chi and life chi of the Ox they will find themselves ahead of the other animal signs, but one has to stay grounded and remember that failing is part of life because forgetting this will be the sure cause of failure. Wealth luck is bad for everybody, but with the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET an Ox will find themselves a little ahead of the wealth race. It is the 45-year old Ox that needs most caution and thus needs the special protection and power of both the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and of the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


TIGER

1TIGER

General Traits: Lucky, powerful, proud, aggressive, courageous, a good leader, vivacious, high self-confident, energetic, impulsive, dignified, handsome, self-concerned, arrogant.

The Tiger and the Ox almost always has similar lucks. And this year is the same. The forecast for the Tiger also shows some very positive points, of course, while it is not perfect, it still really good. It might be so good that this year you may tend to be aggressive. So, watch out for that attitude, you wouldn’t want to earn the jealousy of other people that may plot against, whether intentional or unintentional, you receiving the recognition or financial recognition that you deserve. To protect yourself from this it is highly recommended that you wear or carry with you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND THE LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULETS.

Like the Ox, the Tiger finds itself in a fairly good situation. The “Basket of Elements” of the year of the Tiger are both in harmony. This makes the Tiger to have a strong Spiritual Chi and Life Chi. However, Inner Chi might be a little low, but simply having the VAJRAPANI RUEL should help.

However, the Tiger is also afflicted by the #3 Flying Star also known as the Argumentative Star. Again, this star brings in conflict, tension, stress and misunderstanding that may lead to loss of dignity, loss of good name, and this may also lead to court cases and serious hostilities that involves knives or guns. It is important that you protect yourself from this, by having the VAJRAPANI RUEL and/or by wearing a DEEP RED STONE as jewelry. RUBY and GARNET are quite powerful. Wearing an APPLE PENDANT should also help a lot, and likewise having the SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET should also bring in some harmonious energy.

The Tiger has the Earth Seal Star from the 24-Mountain Stars, this helps bring in some good chi that adds to a more positive outlook of the year. This will also help you get grounded. Wear a gold pendant of the image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE (also called Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) to help further strengthen this star.

Furthermore, you also have the Big Auspiciousness Star, and this star will help propel you to success and will also help bring in wealth luck, especially in a year where wealth luck is weak or nonexistent. You should activate this by wearing the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and let your Piyao do the chasing for wealth and auspiciousness for you.

It is a good year for the Tiger in terms of their health luck.

Wealth luck is relatively good as long as a Tiger is creative enough. But remember, there is an absence of wealth luck this year so having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET is a must for the Tiger to be able to tap into their relatively good wealth luck. However, it’s the 56-year old Tiger that needs to be most cautious will prove to be the most problematic when it comes to money-making capabilities.

 


 

RABBIT

RABBIT chinese zodiac

General Traits: Talented, ambitious, shrewd, patient, cautious, diplomatic, sophisticated, cultured, old-fashioned, gentle, good-heated, symphatetic, affectionate, loving, often artistic, self-indulge, over-attach to people/objects, emotional, moody.

Aside from one dreaded star from the Flying Stars, the year should be good for people born under the sign of the Rabbit. In fact, it’s quite a unique year for people born under the sign of the Rabbit. With determination and hard work, you will definitely come to see the fruition of the things that you worked on the past year. There will be several opportunities for the Rabbit this year, and if you are creative enough and hardworking enough and if you have enough foresight you will see yourself breaking new boundaries this year.

The Inner Chi, Life Chi and the Spiritual Chi of the Rabbit are all very strong this year, and thus will provide a big push for you to achieve whatever you want to achieve.

One major cause of concern is that you have the second most dreaded star of the Flying Stars, which is the #7 Flying Star or the Violent Star! This is a star that causes loss, accidents, and betrayal among other things. This is a star that you will definitely want to be protected from. Don’t fully trust people, even though they may be somebody you have worked with in the past. You need to be extra careful also in all your endeavors. Be very careful with the documents that you sign and always make sure that you read them twice or thrice. While you shouldn’t be selfish, don’t overly share information about what you do also, especially if the information that you share can be used to sabotage your progress. The strength of this star is also slightly stronger this year, so precaution should be definitely made. To help counteract this star it is strongly recommended that you wear a GOLD KALACHAKRA PENDANT or carry the VAJRAPANI RUEL with you. It will also be extremely beneficial is you supplement these amulets with chanting of the mantras of the PROTECTIVE DEITY KALACHAKRA and VAJRAPANI BODHISATTVA.

Mantra of the Protective Deity Kalachakra: OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani: OM VAJRAPANI HUM

The Annual Conflict Star found in the 24 Mountain Stars brings some concern also. These may be little matters that will zap you of energy in a big way. This is a serious matter that you have to dealt with, because this might affect the good luck brought about by the harmony of the “Basket of Elements” of the Rabbit, with the “Basket of Elements” of the year. One best way to deal with this is to wear or carry with you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET. Simply having this with you will help in tremendous way.

Another cause for concern is that the Rabbit is also afflicted with the Yin Jia Star. What this star does is that it increases Yin energy of the Rabbit, and it magnifies the Yin or negative energies that arises from your situation. Thus, it may bring bad luck. Deal with this star simply by having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. The auspicious Piyao made from empowered gold will definitely be able to “eat” away the negative energies, and add on protection through the gold that is empowered with mantras, sutras, and pujas performed by Bhiksus, Bhiksunis, and High Lamas like Guru Lama.

Because of your strong Life Chi coupled with strong Spiritual Chi and Inner Chi, the Rabbit need not worry about their health condition this year. They will be able to avoid major health issues. However, the 7 and 70 years old Rabbit may find themselves getting involve in an accident that may lead to a long-term illness. They should protect themselves from it by wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET or an image of MEDICINE BUDDHA  worn as a pendant.

The Rabbit’s strong inner chi, life chi, and spiritual chi will be their greatest ally in making money. But remember that wealth luck is really weak if not non-existent this year, thus it is important that you create wealth opportunity for yourself by wearing the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, similarly having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO, will also definitely help bring wealth in so that your hard work won’t go to waste. The 31 and 55-year-old, especially the 55, will really need to boost their wealth luck with the combined powers of the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


 

DRAGON

DRAGON chinese zodiac

General Traits: Intelligent, full of energy, witty, quixotic, artistic, enthusiastic, inventive and original in thought, enigmatic, perfectionist, humourous, headstrong, generous, egostical, aristocratic, over-demanding, prone to worry, quick-tempered.

The very important thing that a person born under the sign of the Dragon should realize is that amongst the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac signs it is only the Dragon and the Snake that has direct wealth luck / financial luck / money luck that they got from the Flying Stars. The #8 Flying Star, which is the Wealth Star and is considered to be one of the most auspicious star in the Flying Star in the Flying Stars formula directly affects the people born under the sign of the Dragon and the Snake. While this star needs to be activated because there is no wealth luck in the Bazi Chart, the Dragon will have to remember that they are already one step, maybe even several steps ahead when it comes to wealth enhancing factors.

Furthermore, the Dragon should also always remember that the Big Auspiciousness Star also flies into its sector. This is also extremely auspicious because this brings in blessings of success, fulfillment, and wealth.

You have to remember these two because it will take a lot of wisdom and strategic ideas to help the Dragon go through the 2018 Year of Earth Dog. And why is this? Because the ruling animal sign of the year which is the Dog is in direct conflict of the Dragon.

Spiritual Chi and Inner Chi are low and when I say low, I mean they are really low. This will greatly affect your chances of attaining success, be it wealth success, personal or career success! Hard work, determination, and faith in the higher being will definitely be your ‘allies’ this year! These are the things that will definitely help propel you to survive the year. However, determination and faith are affected by inner chi and spiritual chi respectively.

Your very low spiritual chi will leave you susceptible to evil intentions, whether intentional or not. It will also make you disheartened easily. Furthermore, it will make you also more susceptible to negative energies, or Yin energies around you. To counter this, I strongly recommend that you wear a gold image of EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA pendant. Bodhisattva Earth Store is also known as Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa. The weak inner chi will make you easily lose interest or give up on projects or business dealings, and so it is important to address that concern also by wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET!

I would like to share a good thing though. The Dragon’s Life Chi is also good. It will give you the focus and vitality to overcome the yin energies coming from failed progress of projects caused by other people. And also, simply having the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET will definitely give you the bolster that you need to sustain a strong life chi, to help supplement the weak spiritual chi and inner chi. Furthermore, wearing a BODHI LEAF DZI BEAD tied with a RUTILATED QUARTZ bracelet will help bolster the said strong life chi. You will need to bolster it or energize it because you don’t want it getting depleted because of your weak spiritual chi and inner chi.

As mentioned above, the Dragon has to always remember that they have the #8 Flying Star or the Wealth Star. While this star is still dependent on the general wealth luck of the year base on the Bazi Chart, it has to be mentioned that it is only the Dragon and Snake who has this star. And it is quite easy to strengthen and focus the energy of this star to affect the Dragon. You do this simply by wearing the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET and/or the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

The other good thing is that the Dragon also has the Big Auspiciousness Star of the 24 Mountain Stars. This star brings in success and wealth amongst other auspicious blessings. One should activate this star by wearing the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. But for the Dragon it will help if you can have an image of MAITREYA BUHDDA or HAPPY FAT BUDDHA made of gold empowered with special prayers. This will help bolster that Big Auspiciousness Star, and you really need to energize it to compensate for the other weaknesses.

You are also afflicted with the Tai Suey (Tai Sui, Grand Duke Jupiter) of the year. Maybe you are in direct confrontation position with Tai Suey, and you are also in direct hostile position with the ruling Chinese animal zodiac of the year, and these will bring obstacles, stress, hindrances to your endeavors. The good news is simply wearing a Piyao will help appease the Tai Sui. And so, get a Piyao or better yet get the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO so that it helps bring in other good things also aside from simply appeasing the Tai Suey.

As a foot note to the low spiritual energy, you should remember that going to a temple (lighting some incense) or if you’re a Christian simply going to church and/or praying the rosary or reading the Bible should help strengthen your spiritual chi.

Physical health may be average for the Dragon; however, mental and emotional health are of a concerned. All affected but this is especially true for the 30, 42, and 90-year-old Dragons. You will have to be alert in the first sign of illness and make sure you take a lot of rest. Wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET should help a lot. Likewise chanting the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA should also help.

Medicine Buddha Mantra: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

Illness Suppression Amulet3

NOTE: THIS IS THE OLD ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. THE NEW ONE IS MADE OF METAL. SHOWING THIS PHOTO SO YOU BASICALLY HAVE AN IDEA WHAT’S INSIDE. The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

As mentioned again, remember that the key to making money is to remember that you have the Wealth Star and the Big Auspiciousness Star and that having the recommended amulets will certainly help you to tap into the power of these stars. One of the frustration here is that the Dragon has the wealth luck, but it might be difficult to tap into it. So aside from having the recommended amulets, you can also chant mantras of WEALTH GOD OR DEITIES.


 

SNAKE

SNAKE chinese zodiac

General Traits: Proud, determined, wise, ambitious, talented in many directions, almost always successful, courageous when necessary, passionate, intelligent, quick-witted, cool-headed, charming, mistrusting.

There are only two Chinese animal zodiac signs this year that is directly affected by wealth luck or money luck or financial luck, and that is the Dragon and the Snake. Wealth luck usually comes from the Bazi Chart of the year and its relationship to the “Basket of Elements” of the sign and the Flying Stars Formula and 24 Mountain Stars Formula. However, this year because there is no wealth luck to be found in the Paht Chee Chart / Bazi Chart of the year, and no direct wealth luck to be found in the 24 Mountain Stars, aside from the indirect wealth from the Big Auspiciousness Star, the only wealth luck will come from the Flying Stars. This however is also slightly dependent to the year’s “Basket of Elements” and so activating this star should be really important.

Furthermore, the Snake also has the Heaven’s Seal Star, which is another star one really wants to have. The Heaven’s Seal also helps provide the Snake the capabilities to cope with the energy of the year. Because of the Heaven Seal, people born under the year of the Snake will have the most power to reign over their destinies, which is absent from the other animal zodiac.

On top of that, the Snake’s Inner Chi is also quite strong and so it provides it the power to reach success in the Snake’s endeavor. Spirit Chi and Life Chi are quite mediocre, and so it is best to wear a gold pendant image of BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA (Earth Store Bodhisattva / Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) so that it doesn’t get any lower which may affect your over-all success. Furthermore, you should also address the mediocre life chi by wearing or carrying with you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA PENDANT

The Earth Store Bodhisattva Pendant should be in gold or platinum. Bodhisattva Earth Store is also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa.

As mentioned, the Snake is one of the only 2 animal zodiacs that has direct wealth luck by virtue of the #8 Flying Star which is better known as the Wealth Star. The Snake has better luck than the Dragon in tapping into these energies of the Wealth Star, however, as mentioned this star is somewhat dependent on the wealth luck provided in “Basket of Elements”, so for one to be able to tap into this luck and activate its wealth, it is extremely advisable for one to wear the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and/or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.

 

The Heaven’s Seal will also support give the Snake the support that it needs to fulfill all his endeavors. This is an auspicious star to have. And to make this work, it will help if one wears an image of BODHISTTVA EARTH STORE or BODHISATTVA AVALOKITESVARA (also known as Kuan Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon, Bodhisattva of Compassion, Goddess of Mercy) in gold pendant.

However, there are two possible worries that the Snake has to contend with. This is the Annual Conflict and the facing of the Three Killings. It is easy to deal with Three Killings, as long as you keep active you are already deflecting its negative effect which may cause three kinds of losses. But the Annual Conflict has to be dealt with. For the Snake, it will be beneficial to have the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET. Having this amulet will protect you from the ill effects of this star which may cause some hindrance in your success.

Health wise the Snake should not be bothered about possible illness. That is generally speaking, however, the 29, 41, and 89 years old should try to take care of themselves and ensure that they have enough sleep. Whatever will strike them may be due to weakening of their immune system and maybe because of them abusing their bodies. It is advisable for them to have the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET so that they can be protected from an illness that may hinder their success.


 

HORSE

Horse chinese zodiac

General Traits: Mostly Popular and loves the attention, admired, friendly, sexually-appealing, carefree, optimistic, pleasure-seeking, imaginative, inquisitive, hardworking, loyal, good talker, capable, practical, energetic, impulsive, moody and egoistic

Most people born in the year of the Horse had a rough year in 2017. 2018 Year of the Earth Dog will prove to be a little better, but I cannot say that it will be a perfect year or a totally good year. So, to speak, they might have seen the light at the end of the tunnel but that will still have to navigate a slightly bumpy road ahead before they reach the end of the tunnel.

The chart shows that with hard work and determination the year may prove to be a career or professionally satisfying for a person born under the sign of the Horse.

This year will be a year where a Horse will determine what he/she really wants to achieve and have, although money luck like anybody else will be something that a Horse should really work hard for. The Horse’s Spirit Chi and Life Chi are average. It is neither strong nor weak, and they should try to work on it so that it can be their tool to achieve greater heights. To further strengthen their spiritual chi, it will be good to wear a gold pendant image of EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA (also known as Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa or Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha). For the life chi, a Horse should carry or wear the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.  It is important that a Horse should not give in to negativity or yin energies, sometimes it may prove to be difficult but they should always look at the positive. And as I always tell my readers who consult me, staying positive is always the first line of defense.

One of the major concern is the very weak inner chi of the Horse. Having a weak inner chi will make success elusive because of your own sentiments. So it is important that when you a big goal, come up with smaller goals to achieve it, then focus on each of the smaller goals first until you hit the big goal. It is also important to strengthen your inner chi, and you can do this simply be carrying or wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

Since the Dog is the Dog’s zodiac friend or ally, it will be a good for the horse to tap into the power of the Dog this year. You do this simply by carrying with you an image of a DOG. This can be a pendant, or as simple as a nice keychain.

dog key chain

In looking for a dog key chain look for something that has a happy and friendly image.

One good news is that the #4 Flying Star, also known as the Romantic and Scholastic Star flies into the sector of the Horse. This means that the Horse will do good in work or projects that involve a lot of research or “studying”.

The #4 Star also brings love to the Horse, this means that single Horses who are looking for love might find romantic love this year. Married or attached Horse will find that their love is blooming. However, this is a star that may also bring in a third party into the relationship, so it is best that you safeguard yourself. For married couple, you can tie an AMETHYST GEODE WITH A RED STRING at the foot of your bed. Or you can wear the DOUBLE HAPPINESS SYMBOL in gold. For single who wants to further enhanced this luck you can find a PAIR OF MANDARIN DUCKS and carry with you the SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET.

 

This star also gives the Horse a charming aura, so networking for your business or work will definitely good this year.

However, there is a bit of bad news. The Horse is afflicted with the Wu Duo Star of the 24 Mountain Stars. This is a star that brings misfortune and is definitely a big stumbling block for the Horse’s endeavors. Furthermore, this is almost like the #7 Violent Star of the Flying Stars, and thus one needs to protect oneself from this star. It can cause failure, and thus is it best to protect oneself from this star by carrying or wearing the VAJRAPANI RUEL. Better if this is combined with a gold or jade pendant of BODHISATTVA KUAN YIN (also known as Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon, Avalokitesvara, Goddess of Mercy, Bodhisattva of Compassion). Carrying a VICTORY BANNER will also help.

Technically speaking you are also facing the Three Killings, which can bring three kinds of misfortune. However, an active Horse will already have dealt with this simply being active. But you can also carry with you the THREE CELESTIAL GUARDIANS.

The Horse will have to be careful about their health, especially since as mentioned they may be prone to stress. This is especially true to the 16, 28, 52, 76, and 88 years old Horses. The only ones not so affected are the 40 and 64 years old Horse. However, it will still be good for all Horses to carry or wear the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET.

Considering that wealth luck is elusive this year, the Horse will have an average wealth opportunities if they aptly work hard and put on wealth enhancing amulet like the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and/or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


 

SHEEP

sheep chinese zodiac

General Traits: Quiet, reserved, symphathetic, sincere, patient, unemotional, practical, realistic, common sense always prevails, optimistic, sincere, non-judgemental, ambitious, determined, can’t work under stress.

Despite of the fact that the “Basket of Elements” is not in total harmony with the “Basket of Elements” of the year, a Sheep can still have a prosperous and fulfilling 2018. This is a year where major changes for the betterment of a Horse’s life may happen.

The Sheep’s Inner Chi is quite strong and this should prove to be a successful year for a Sheep who will work hard to achieve its goal. Having the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET should further this luck thus giving you a great advantage.

Spirit Chi of the Sheep is of a concern because this may cause waning of your enthusiasm and may cause psycho – emotional concerns. It is best to protect yourself by wearing an image of Bodhisattva made of gold. I highly recommend the EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA or the BODHISATTVA KUAN YIN.

 

Life Chi is good thus it will provide the energy you need to course through the year.

One of the best news is that the Sheep has the #6 Flying Star also known as the Heaven’s Blessing and Mentor Star! This is a very auspicious star to have because it brings in huge amount of blessings from the heaven and more that it brings in the mentor star. This means that the Sheep will always have support of superiors and there will always somebody to guide them. It is extremely good to further activate this star by inviting an image of a BUDDHA, BODHISATTVA, or a DEITY to signify that you honor them and also signify a focused energy on you. I strongly recommend that you get one or two of any of the following Buddhas or Bodhisattvas: SAKYAMUNI BUDDHA (also spelled as Shakyamuni), MEDICINE BUDDHA, KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, KUAN YIN BODHISATTVA, GODDESS TARA.Goddess Tara

You also have the Yi Duo Star!!!! This means all the good things may be multiplied. And if you want to activate this star with a focus or having better wealth luck so that money will come in, I strongly recommend that you get either the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET. Wearing a PRAYER WHEEL will also fill you with auspicious blessings!

You are facing the Three Killings which may bring three kinds of misfortune. However, an active Sheep will already have dealt with the negative effects of the Three Killings. But if you want to get a cure, I suggest that you carry with you at all times the THREE CELESTIAL GUARDIANS!

Health luck should be good because of the #6 Flying Star where the Heavenly Beings and the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas will protect you. But the 27, 75, and 87 years old should take an extra care of their health. Wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET should be enough to protect you.


 

MONKEY

monkey chinese zodiac

General Traits: Lively, quick-witted, crafty, mercenary, opportunist, original thinker, clever, innovative, self-centred, devious,amusing, sociable, ammiable, very ambitious.

It is going to be a good year for people born under the sign of the Monkey!!! The Monkey enjoys an auspicious and harmonious energy this year. Their strong Spirit Chi and Life Chi can help propel them to great heights. This year, a Monkey should follow their instinct and they will also enjoy some sort of mental clarity that will help them move forward this year.

The success that a Monkey will achieve this year is largely because of hard work and determination plus being focus on what they want. As mentioned, a great spirit chi and life chi are two things from within that will ensure their success. Inner Chi might be a little low but either the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET should be enough to address this concern of the Monkey.

As if it’s not enough good news. The Monkey, like the Sheep, also enjoys the #6 Flying Star, which is the Heaven’s Blessings and Mentor Star! This is a very auspicious star to have. Great opportunities and blessings from the Heaven awaits the Monkey. While money luck is bad for everybody, the Monkey can tap into the power of this star to attain some wealth luck. They can do this simply by having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and an image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE in gold.

The #6 Flying Stars also brings in the Mentor Luck; thus, the Monkey will enjoy the support of their superiors. They will also constantly find a person who can help them.

Another great news is that they have Golden Deity star, this is a star that brings wealth from the Heavens and it also brings in blessing and support from the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Deities, and Taoist Gods. Activate this star by inviting an image of a deity in gold. I strongly suggest any one of the following: SAKYAMUNI BUDDHA, AMITABHA BUDDHA, MEDICINE BUDDHA, KUAN YIN BODHISATTVA, EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA, GODDESS TARA, MAITREYA BODHISATTVA.

 

The only cause of concern is that the Monkey is flank by two negative stars from the 24 Mountain Stars. These are the Annual Conflict Star and the Yin Jia Xing. These two stars combined can cause a lot of serious havoc that may lead to loss of wealth, grave illness or accidents and even death! It is best to suppress the effects of these stars, and one can do this by wearing the VAJRAPANI RUEL and/or a gold KALACHAKRA pendant.

Wealth luck is better than most of the animal zodiac, but this has to be activated with the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET or the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO!

Health luck is generally good for most Monkeys.


 

ROOSTER

Rooseter chinese zodiac

General Traits: Moody, dreamy, talkative, vain, outgoing, extravagant, over-confident, self-confident, attentive to friends, rarely successful, flamboyant, unaided, dignified, handsome, headstrong, arrogant, vain.

If we are to base everything on the harmony of the Rooster’s “Basket of Elements” with that of the year’s “Basket of Elements”, then we can say that this year is going to be simply superb and wonderful for people born under the sign of the Rooster. Spiritual Chi, Life Chi, and Inner Chi are all strong and not to mention, I repeat the Bazi Chart of the Rooster and of the year are in sync.

Personal luck, career luck and relationship luck looks really positive, and thus the year is for the Rooster to take. You will need to magnify your spiritual chi, inner chi and life chi because these are the only tools you have to take on the year. And unfortunately, the Flying Stars and the 24 Mountain Stars both brings in some very negative stars, and thus bolstering the luck you get from good spiritual chi, inner chi, and life chi is a must. Not to mention the harmonious relationship of the “Basket of Elements” of the Rooster and that of the year’s should be taken advantage of.

To bolsters these good energies, I strongly recommend that people born under the sign of the Rooster wears a gold pendant of the image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE, FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET, and the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

The Rooster is afflicted with the #2 Flying Star, which is also known as the Illness Star. The Illness Star causes different kinds of disease or weaknesses, but more than that it causes accidents also that may become an illness, that may affect the outcome of your luck.

I remember that a person consulted me before because he was really having a lot of luck that year. Projects come in one after another, but he failed to contend with the Illness Star, which afflicts him that year, and so while good things are coming in, it was hindered when he had an accident that cause him to be bedridden and unable to walk for a little more than a month. And so this star has to be dealt with. You can do this by wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET or by wearing a gold pendant of the image of MEDICINE BUDDHA. Likewise, chanting the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA and the WHITE UMBRELLA GODDESS MANTRA should help avert the negative effects of the said star.

Medicine Buddha Mantra: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

White Umbrella Goddess Mantra: TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTHANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHINISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NE SOHA

Another thing negative thing that a Rooster has to contend with are the two Annual Conflict Stars and the Reducing Energy Star!

The said stars can create major problems that will disrupt the good flow of energy and will disrupt your peace of mind. So if you’re a Rooster, like the Ox, you should remember to try to keep cool and maintain your own peace of mind. Remember that you have the power to control your emotions and thoughts. Furthermore, the Reducing Energy Star will further make the Rooster, who is already afflicted with the Illness Star to become weaker and/or to become more susceptible to infections and even accidents. The ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULETS and the CHANTING OF MANTRAS OF MEDICINE BUDDHA and/or WHITE UMBRELLA GODDESS is enough to handle the concern brought about by the Reducing Energy Star. However, for the two Annual Conflict Stars, it is best to carry with you a VAJRAPANI RUEL and a gold KALACHAKRA pendant.

Wealth luck should be good if the Rooster will overcome all the negative stars brought about by the Flying Stars and 24 Mountain Stars. However, this has to be activated and so I highly recommend the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and/or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


 

DOG

DOG

Loyal, just, strong sense of morality, reliable, dutiful, patient, caring, sincere, compassionate, honest, generous, intelligent, confident, idealistic, affectionate, a worthy leader, tend to become lazy and depressed, pessimistic.

The Dog enjoys some very good stars both from the Flying Stars and the 24 Mountain Stars, and these stars should help the Dog in achieving its wish for the year. However, as early as now, I would like to clarify already that wealth luck is not at its best for the Dog. While this may be true for everybody, this is more significant for people born under the sign of the Dog. So it is better if a person born under the sign of the Dog will focus more on personal success or professional success that is not financial or money-centric.

A Dog should realize that they have the support of the Tai Sui (Tai Suey or Grand Duke of Jupiter) God of the year, and this should also provide an added boost. However, the Tai Suey should always be appeased, and thus they should wear a Piyao, better if they wear the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO because of their weak wealth luck. So, they can sort of hit two birds in one stone.

They should also take advantage of a special luck brought about by their Paht Chee Chart or Bazi Chart, and I’m talking about Noble Aristocrat Star. This is a star that seldom appears but can prove to be an auspicious one. To put plainly, it is a star that is similar to the Mentor’s Star of the Flying Stars, however this is more focus in bringing wealth. What this star does is that it brings you people who can mentor you or lead you in wealth generating ideas. To activate this star, it is extremely good to have the VAJRAPANI RUEL or an image of KUAN KONG (also spelled or called as Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Kuan Teh Ya, Guan Teh Ya, Teh Ya Kong, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Bodhisattva Sangharama, Qie Lan Pu Sa).

The “Basket of Elements” of the Dog as an animal zodiac sign, is not in sync with that of the year’s “Basket of Elements”! You might be wondering and say that this is lunar year of the Earth Dog, how come it is not in sync? The truth is, and I have written about this in the past, is that if the year’s animal sign is also the same of that of your animal sign doesn’t mean that you are lucky, in fact, it is mostly the contrary. This is because too much of the same thing will repel each other, and this is what happened with the Dog or with any signs for the other years. The only saving grace for the Dog is the good stars from the Flying Stars and the 24 Mountain Stars.

The sole driving force of the Dog for the year is their strong life chi. This is the only thing base from their bazi that will sustain them. And as you know if you kept on running on a single source that thing will be depleted, it’s the same with chi, and so it is better to sustain this by amplifying it with the use of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

The Spirit Chi and Inner Chi of the Dog are really weak. A weak spirit chi will make a person more susceptible to yin energies, and it will make you more prone to unseen entities. This can also pull you down from achieving your full potential for the year, thus it is extremely advisable to wear an image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE as a gold pendant. Weak inner chi can also take a blow on your perseverance, confidence and determination, this may sound petty but sometimes these are the only things that can drive us to finish something and this year this is more important than ever. So, it is better to strengthen your inner chi, and for the Dog, I would strongly recommend having the SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET.

 

The wonderful news is that the Dog has the #1 Flying Star, which is also known as the Victory Star. This is a star that brings in auspicious luck and fortune. Having this star will let you triumph over things that can pull you down. Sometimes, being victorious can also bring wealth luck, and this year all wealth luck / financial luck / money luck are indirect and you have to search for it. Being victorious will certainly open doors for wealth luck and you will strongly need all opportunities because as mentioned wealth luck of people born under the sign of the Dog are weak, weaker than most of the signs, except maybe that of the Rat. And so, having the VAJRAPANI RUEL, which also enjoys a lot of miraculous personal testimonies that involves financial luck is highly recommended.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

The 24 Mountain Stars brings in the Small Auspiciousness Star to the Dog, and while this brings small luck, in the long run this could prove to be really helpful, especially if you can really make it active by constantly giving you small lucks all the time. You can further bolster the effects of this star by having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO, and since the Piyao will also appease the Tai Sui God of the year, you are already addressing two things in one cure or amulet.

The bad news is that the 24 Mountain Stars also brings in the Annual Conflict Star, and this should be addressed and dealt with right away because for some to reason the one that afflicts the Dog is quite strong. And having a weal spirit chi will definitely expound its effect. For this I strongly recommend that you protect yourself with a gold pendant image of BODHISATTVA KUAN YIN (also known or spelled as Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Kannon, Avalokitesvara, Chenrezig, Goddess of Mercy, Bodhisattva of Compassion) or with the FOUR DHARMAKAY RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET!

The weak spirit chi and inner chi together with the unfavorable and disharmonious relationship of the “Basket of Elements” and because of the side affliction of the #2 Illness Star, the Dog’s health is not exactly at its best this 2018. Caution is advised to all ages and they would all need to arm themselves with the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. However, it is the 12, 60, and 72 years old Dogs that are most in danger. I strongly recommend that they as well as the other age group arm themselves with the RECITATION OF THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA (download The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata) and with CHANTING THE MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA!

Illness Suppression Amulet3

NOTE: THIS IS THE OLD ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. THE NEW ONE IS MADE OF METAL. SHOWING THIS PHOTO SO YOU BASICALLY HAVE AN IDEA WHAT’S INSIDE. The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Lastly, as mentioned, I just would like to reiterate that wealth luck is quite bad for the Dog. But follow the advice above and if possible wear the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET and the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and CHANT THE MANTRAS OF THE WEATH DEITIES should really make things better.

Vaisravana Dzambhala Wealth Amulet

The Vaisavana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet has the consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings and the mantras of the Five Dzambhalas. Furthermore, there are some special ingredients in powder form that are included to add to the potency of the amulet. Before it is sealed it is furthered consecrated on the image of The Four Heavenly Kings.It is placed in a metal case, not just for its durability and protection but according to the Tantric Buddhist Scripture book where Guru Lama got the instructions for this amulet, it has to be placed in cylindrical metal case to symbolize continuity and stability.


 

PIG/BOAR

PIG

General Traits: Just, discerning, wise, intellectual and well-informed, lucky with money and in friendship, always admired, self-indulgent, cultured, loyal, reliable, naïve, tend to get frustrated due to lack of knowledge

Like the Dog, the Pig’s “Basket of Elements” is not also in sync with year’s “Basket of Elements”. But if there’s something that should be told to people born under the sign of the Pig is that they should be mindful of their attitude. That would be the respectful of saying it, but I will be blunt here, they should not have any negative boastful attitude.

Success will be within reach for the Pig, and they might find themselves successful in any of their undertakings, thus they have to watch out for having some attitude. They should also realize who are really there for them and not assume things. For they might ostracized somebody who is silently helping them just because they didn’t see what they want to see or hear what they want to hear.

The Pig’s Spirit Chi and Life Chi are weak. Weak spirit chi might make the Pig more susceptible to yin energies, thus they should protect themselves with a gold pendant image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE!

EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA PENDANT

The Earth Store Bodhisattva Pendant should be in gold or platinum. Bodhisattva Earth Store is also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa.

 

A weak life chi will diminish the drive and energy of Pig and thus will prevent you from getting the success that is presented to you by your bazi. To protect yourself from this I strongly recommend, for the Pig, the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

The Pig fortunately has the #1 Flying Star, which is also known as the Victory Star! This star would make a Pig be victorious in its endeavors, sometimes this can pave the way to wealth luck. To further enhanced this star, it will be very good for people born under the sign of the Pig to carry the VAJRAPANI RUEL or have the VICTORY BANNER with them.

The Pig also have the Small Auspiciousness Star, albeit this is weaker for the Pig than that of the Dog. This star also brings in a lot of small luck that may spell a lot of difference this year. If you want to make this star constantly active and help chase good luck for you especially wealth luck, then it is extremely a good idea to have the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

However, the bad news is that the Pig is also afflicted with the Robbery Star. Aside from the implication as robbery, this could also mean wealth loss through theft or betrayal of trust. Furthermore, it can also mean people stealing your ideas or stealing your recognition. It is best to protect yourself from this by having the gold KALACHAKRA PENDANT or the VAJRAPANI RUEL.

Because of the disharmonious relationships of the “Basket of Elements” of the year and that of the Pig, the Pig will really have to take care of their health. Depression and/or other psycho – emotional conditions is the thing that may affect the Pig this year. Thus it is best to wear the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET.

As mentioned, wealth luck for everybody or for all the signs this year is quite weak. The same is true for the Pig, although the Small Auspiciousness Star, the Victory Star and strong inner chi will strengthen the chances of the Pig to have some wealth luck if they are able to create it. The best wealth luck amulet for the all the Pig is the VASIRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


 

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU CANNOT GET ALL THE RECOMMENDED AMULETS, GET AT LEAST THE HOLY TRINITY OF AMULETS FOR THE YEAR. THEY ARE THE GOLD PENDANT IMAGE OF BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE; FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET; AND SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO OR THE VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.

 

Note: The Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras and Lama Atisha Combined Amulet has not arrived yet.

2018 dog

PHOTO LIFTED FROM GOOGLE IMAGES

As soon as middle of November hits, I always get a barrage of request to write my forecast. Before I would post my forecast in January only because I want people to understand that the annual forecast is really for the lunar year and not the western or Gregorian calendar. Lunar year, usually starts end of January or sometime in February, rarely it does start in early March. However, the past two years because of some very important factors in the forecast, I have posted my forecast articles sometime in December. But I think this is by far the earliest I’m posting forecast.

Why? Because for 2018 Year of the Earth Dog (Lunar Year) which happens on February 16, 2018 early preparation is key. Furthermore, since I wrote an article that gives a peak to what’s in store in 2018 lunar year, which is the Year of the Earth Dog, I have been barraged to write the whole forecast. To be fair, I have worked on the formulas and the charts already, but there are a several things that I want to be revalidated by Guru Lama and by my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong. After my formulas and charts has been validated, I had to compare notes with them regarding my analysis. You see, this year is quite especial, and as I always say a year is rarely all good or all bad, there some things in the chart this is a cause for concern. But I will not jump ahead of myself, I would like to present it properly so that you will understand it clearly.

Aside from the computations, analysis and validations with Guru Lama and my Feng Shui teacher, it also takes a while for me to write my posts, because I will have to organize it properly as to where I should start, and I have to choose my words carefully so that it doesn’t subject itself to misinterpretation. Writing alone of these forecasts usually takes 7 – 10 days, minimum of 2 hours day. It takes long because for me technically speaking it’s a one – man act, I don’t have a pool of staff who do the calculations, draft the charts, do the analysis and the writing. That is why it is a bit of tedious process. Nevertheless, the good news is that I’m not able to post my Feng Shui forecast for 2018 Year of the Earth Dog base on the Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart), Flying Star Formula and 24 – Mountain Stars Formula.

2018 Bazi Chart

PHOTO LIFTED FROM GOOGLE IMAGES

Another reason why I need to write this forecast early, is because while the energies of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog doesn’t come early, unlike the last 2 entrances of lunar years, it does enter at the end of the last quarter of lunar year of 2017, which is the Year of the Fire Rooster, and the last quarter (November 2017, December 2017, and January 2018) are of conflicting energies, a little negative at that.

Some of you might be familiar already in reading a chart, and with one look at the chart of 2018 lunar year, one thing you will notice is that it is an imbalanced chart. It has a lot of wood, and unfortunately there is no metal. This year metal is the element that rules wealth or money or financial.

And so looking at the chart is already quite obvious that there is no wealth luck / financial luck / money luck to be had for this year. This means that income generation may be a little bit challenging. This goes for everybody, and so for this year, what is really important is for us to prepare for the coming year. One can do this by securing business deals or projects or ensuring that it will be difficult for business partners or stakeholder to rescind on agreements, for employees, one can make sure that your superiors notice how hardworking and also make sure that they notice your contributions. However, we are never a lone man, most of the time, what we make is dependent on how others do also. For example, even it is hard for a business partner to rescind on an agreement, if they are pushed to the wall, and because their own business is doing really bad, sometimes one can’t do anything about it. So, it is extremely important that one should put metal into one’s life. Make sure that the missing element is present in your life. For those, who knows their ‘Basket of Elements’ base on their Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart, and if it has a high metal rating then you are already a step ahead of the others, however, you should also still add more metal to your life to compensate for the missing element of the year.

How does one compensate the lack of metal in the year’s bazi chart? We should all wear the metal element. We should surround ourselves with it. Any metal is in a way a representation of the missing element, but because we also need the yang energy of the metal, the best metal to have is a yellow gold! It might be wrong for me to say that silver, stainless, and other metals are useless, but these are not going to be as powerful as having real gold, and not just any gold, I wouldn’t even suggest white gold or red gold (rose gold) unless if you are born in the year of the Ox, in which case the rose gold ore red gold might serve another purpose. But I’ll discuss that more in detail in the forecast for the Chinese animal zodiac.

If you don’t wear gold rings, earrings, necklace, pendants, this is the time to wear one. And the key to wearing gold this year, all you have to remember is that there is no such thing as excessive jewelry. Unless, if it becomes exaggerated, but wearing a ring on both hands, a bracelet, several pendants, earrings, bracelets is not considered as excessive. Wearing more white also helps. In your home or office, you can put white curtains, display gold images, which may be real or not, as long as it’s painted gold. Put more metal displays to compensate for the lack of the metal in the Bazi Chart of the year.

You should remember though that in wearing gold also it will be more beneficial if you wear gold that has an auspicious symbol or symbol of wealth.

At this point, I would like to point out that there appears a single metal element in one of the hidden stems. Making it a hidden metal. What does this mean? It means that money luck or wealth luck or financial luck is STILL SLIGHTLY POSSIBLE if one works really hard, or in business one has to be really creative or very strategic to create money luck or wealth luck or financial luck.

Knowing that this is going to be the situation this year, Guru Lama has released to wealth enhancing amulets. First, allow me to share with you the Special Gold Piyao, regular readers should know about this already and some of them even have shared their experience about it. You can read about their personal testimonies here:

 

 

A Piyao (also spelled called as Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pi Xie) is a celestial being or celestial creature, or celestial animal that only eats gold and silver. This is one of the most powerful wealth amulet or charm one can wear if you want to attract wealth. I have shared with my readers that since I learned Feng Shui about 2 decades ago, I have since worn a Piyao in my body, and I’m never without it. I also have shared that the best Piyao if to be worn as an amulet are either gold or jade. But for this year, and in the years where wealth luck is bad, gold takes precedence over jade. The Special Gold Piyao is of an active stance, and the design is special in a way that it will be easy for it to attract wealth. There are two designs, one is with only coin (heavenly coin) at the bottom, and this is to signify that the Piyao need not look for money or wealth anymore, but rather it is walking on wealth. The other is with a heavenly coin and auspicious words to attract different kind of prosperity into one’s life. In a way, this signifies that one need not look for wealth, but rather one would be ‘walking’ on wealth.

But what makes the Special Gold Piyao really special aside from the design is that the gold used in making this Piyao is from the ‘treasury’ of the temple. It is from the donations of the Sangha members, and these golds are place in special containers then put at the food of different Buddhas, they then receive the energy or power from the chanting of the mantras, reciting of the sutras, or pujas performed by Bhiksus, Bhiksunis, or High Lamas like Guru Lama.

The Special Gold Piyao is really one of the must have for the year, and forms part of the Holy Trinity of Amulet for the lunar year 2018, which is the Year of the Earth Dog. Since there is no metal in the basket, everyone needs to have this Special Gold Piyao.

Other than the Special Gold Piyao, Guru Lama has also released this year the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET. I have written extensively about this amulet and have shared some of testimonies shared with me by Guru Lama. He again released this in preparation for the coming year, although needless to say it is extremely powerful even if the year is not lacking of wealth luck, maybe even more if the year is not lacking of wealth luck. It is quite special in a way that it helps create wealth luck or financial luck or money luck even if there is none in the chart. Unlike other amulet where it pulls from other paths in your bazi, this amulet creates wealth. The VAISARAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET is an amulet rediscovered by Guru Lama in one of the holy tantric scriptures. Because I have written about this extensively, I will no longer discuss it fully here, but you can check the following posts to understand it more:

Now that I have mentioned one of the most important aspect of the bazi chart of the year, and how can we deal with it, allow me to discuss further what is instore for the year base on its basket of elements in the bazi chart or path chee chart.

Looking at the Bazi Chart of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog, we should all be reminded that it is a year, that is not just about money. Especially when we consider the Flying Stars formula, which I’m going to discuss in the 2nd part of this forecast, we will notice it is about a year where success is not measured by money, as it should not be. It is a year when financial success is not only the measure of success, and so those who persevere will reap a different kind of harvest, not financial but career or personal success or fulfillment.

It is also a good year for us to prepare the path for a better future. I know money is important and that preparing the path for a better future is difficult with money, thus the need for the Special Gold Piyao and the VAISRVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, but this year one should focus more on the future, on the long term, rather than just on the present and the now.

Whatever one does, it is important that one should think twice or thrice. Do not be hasty in anything, especially in making a decision. Do not be timid but do not be hasty. Weigh things properly so that you are sure you are not running into a financial trap.

Do not be impatient. The year will favor those hardworking people who shows determination. Be determined, even if sometimes you think your plan or your hard work is not paying off, study the situation, understand the problems but continue to be hardworking and be determined in what you want to achieve. If the goal is not personal or professional success but rather financial or wealth or money in nature, and you don’t have the Special Gold Piyao or the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, remember that financial success is not the only basis whether your hard work is paying off, and that success need not come within the year

This is a year when one has to be careful in using one’s resources, whatever nature of this resources is. Be it wealth, or support, or any other resources. This is a year when resources get depleted but is not replenished easily. Thus, this is also a year that favors those who have a good inner chi or life chi.

Those born in the year of the Dragon, Rabbit, Tiger, and Ox has naturally strong inner chi or life chi, although this may vary based on your bazi chart or path chee chart. These signs will be able to fare better this year than the rest of the Chinese animal zodiac. One of the most powerful thing to do to create inner chi and/or life chi is to wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (also known as Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa or Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) made of gold. Actually, this form the second trinity in the Holy Trinity of Amulets for the year.

ksitigarbha statue

Again, if using an image of Ksitigarbha at home, I prefer to use the one with the crown, unless, he is placed the ancestral altar.

While this is not yet the annual forecast for each of the Chinese animal zodiac, it is important to say that those born in the year of the Rat and Pig, base on the year’s bazi chart are the most affected with the year’s somewhat negative energies. These two signs might feel lethargic and down, and they should remember to persevere and gather some inner strength.

As I always say, a year is seldom all bad or all good. That’s just the way it is, and so for the good part is that in term of yin – yang, the year is quite balanced. There are two yin pillars and two yang pillars on the chart, and this means that people who tend to be abusive might mellow a little, and those who are oppressed will be more heard now. This is also a very positive outlook for women’s rights, especially this year where the #MeToo campaign started again, the coming 2018 will show more of a balanced relationship between men and women.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, depends on how you look at it, and maybe where you live, the chart also shows there is an overpowering presence of the wood element, which for this year signifies authority. This means that there is enough power or energy for rule of law to prevail. However, this is also the same element that gives power and energy to authority. This means people in authority will enjoy their power, now this may be good or bad depending on what kind of leaders we have. If it becomes unbalanced this means people who are in the position of absolute power or unquestioned power will become authoritarian. The only good news is that authority here doesn’t just refer to people who are in power. This also refers to people who have great life chi, so it means people who have a strong commanding star or commanding energy may be able to rule over those potential authoritarians. It is not charm that will work it is the show of command or power that will work this year. For those who want to have more authority, one can wear an image of Kuan Kong (also spelled or called as Guan Gong, or Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Qie Lan Pu Sa, Guan Te Ya, Kuan Te Ya) or a Vajrapani Ruel.

 

Some Feng Shui experts says that this is a year where common sense will prevail over irrational hotheads and troublemakers. This I’m not sure, but I guess it is only possible if the majority is of common sense and not of irrational behavior.

Largely, I believe how this energy will take effect will largely depend on the sign and Bazi Chart of a leader. In this sense, I think 2018 is going to be a challenging year for POTUS Donald Trump, this is a year where if he continuous to act the way he does, might show his downfall, or at least the start of it. Other leaders like him will start to feel that pressure also but then again, it still depends on their personal Bazi Chart. I would like to categorically say now that I will not write about the president of the Philippines.

The strong presence of wood my also signify an increase in natural calamities. Will discuss in a future post.

Another good news is that this year the Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart forms a powerful star called Jiang Xing. This is a very auspicious star in the sense that it helps bring in wealth also, and furthermore it brings auspicious fortune to a person who knows how to activate it. The Star Jiang Xing serves as a charm for a person to stand out, and this year standing out and getting noticed is important if you are not to be put aside, and also standing out is important for people to remember you and for your battle or in your quest to have more money. The Jiang Xing also gives you authority and a sense of trustworthiness. To summarize it brings wealth and recognition. But the unfortunate thing is that this star needs to be activated this year, because we solely lack metal element and it relies on metal element to be really powerful. So again, wearing more gold specially the Special Gold Piyao gives strength to this star. But more importantly, it is very important that one wears the combine power of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET and the LAMA ATISHA AMULET placed in a metal amulet holder. Placing them in a metal amulet holder is very important because we need metal. But more than activating the Jiang Xing, the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET and the LAMA ATISHA AMULET are also very powerful protective amulet and FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET is also a very powerful wish fulfilling amulet. And this year, wish fulfilling is actually very important. This combined amulet actually forms the third amulet of the Holy Trinity of Amulet of the year.

This is an amulet that has been featured before and was released before, however, it is now placed in a metal casing. You can read more about it here:

As you can see, while there may be a cause for concern this year, this year is not at all bad. While the lack of wealth opportunities may be a little bothersome, we should remember that there are tools for us to use already so that we can make things better. The Holy Trinity of Amulets for the year is an important must – have regardless of your sign and stature in life. The major concerns are lack of wealth, and the general atmosphere of low inner chi and/or life chi. Even the Ox, Rabbit, Tiger, and Dragon who are considered to have a stronger inner chi and/or life chi will also be faced by a lot of challenges which may fall into a depletion of these energies. But these concerns are addressed by having either the Special Gold Piyao or the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, and the concern about inner chi or life chi can be addressed by wearing a gold pendant of the image of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha (also called Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa or Bodhisattva Earth Store).

Lastly, we are lucky enough to have the Jiang Xing which is a star that brings wealth and recognition, but we have to activate this with the combined amulets FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET and the LAMA ATISHA AMULET in a metal casing.

And while this year maybe not as good as other years in terms of wealth, we will be presented an opportunity to truly realize that wealth or money should not be the only measure of success. This year we will have the opportunity to grow ourselves psychologically, emotionally, mentally. And this year we will be able to see our inner strength. We should learn to be hardworking, and have determination, but more importantly we should all have faith… faith in yourself, faith that things will always get better, and faith in a higher being, whether that is Allah, Buddha, or God. And allow me to share what a good friend and reader shared with me before: LET OUR FAITH BE STRONGER THAN OUR FEARS!

Chant – A – Mantra (3c): Daily Mantras to Chant – Mantras for Protection, Business or Career, and Wealth!

Published Hulyo 13, 2016 by jptan2012

In the preceding posts of the Chant – A – Mantra series where I talked about the Daily Mantras to Chant, which is basically the everyday mantras that I chant, I talked about the 3 Main Buddhas of Chinese Buddhism and the 4 Main Bodhisattvas of Chinese Buddhism. The first seven Buddhas and Bodhisattvas whose mantra I wrote about are what you call universal mantras, although I did still wrote about what they are really good for.

On this third part of the Daily Mantras to Chant of the Chant – A – Mantra series I would like to talk about the two other mantras that I chant daily specifically for protection, for business or career and wealth. Both Bodhisattvas are highly revered, one in Chinese Buddhism and the other one in Tibetan Buddhism. But when I mentioned them to my friends and other readers whom I have met in person, the most question they ask is whether they are one and the same.

The answer to that question is no. Bodhisattva Sangharama or Kuan Kong is a very powerful Bodhisattva, although strictly speaking, and I’m uncomfortable writing about this, technically speaking Bodhisattva Sangharama is “lower in rank” compared to Bodhisattva Vajrapani. Why do I say this?kuan-kong-3

Although what we normally hear is simply the word Bodhisattva, strictly speaking there are two types of Bodhisattva, and they are Bodhisattva and Bodhisattva Mahasattva. Bodhisattva Mahasattva is considered higher in rank as oppose to an ordinary Bodhisattva. Vajrapani Bodhisattva is a Bodhisattva Mahasattva. Now I would like to make it clear that this difference in ranking is very little, and the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, I believe don’t look at it that way.

Other Bodhisattvas Mahasattvas are Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara (Kuan Yin), Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha, Bodhisattva Samantabhadra, and Bodhisattva Manjushri among others.

Chanting the mantras of Bodhisattva Sangharama (also known as Qie Lan Pu Sa, Kuan Kong, Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu) and Bodhisattva Vajrapani will provide protection, but more than that it will also shower us with blessing of wealth and good business or good career. This blog is actually full of stories of people who got a lot of blessing from Bodhisattva Vajrapani, thru the Vajrapani Ruel.Vajrapani Bodhisattva

The mantra of Bodhisattva Sangharama is NAMO QIE LAN SHENG CHONG PU SA.

The mantra of Vajrapani Bodhisattva is OM VAJRAPANI HUM.

Namo Sangharama Bodhisattva: A Bodhisattva that Protects, Grants Wealth Blessings, Protects Marital Relationships and is Better Known as Kuan Kong

Published Nobyembre 18, 2014 by jptan2012

kuan kong 3The first time I wrote about Kuan Kong was last February 15, 2012. Since then I have not written much about him except for a few mention in some blog articles and about the boy who is believed to have been saved by Kuan Kong from his death when Typhoon Yolanda (with international name Haiyan) hit the Philippines.

After almost 2 years, I am once again writing about Him because I feel that not to write about Him more is a great injustice to Kuan Kong (also called or spelled as Guan Gong, Guan Yu, Kuan Yu, Kwan Kong, Kwan Ti, Kuan Ti, Guan Ti, or Guan Sheng Di Jun).

Guan Yu as he is known as a person died in 220, but his date of birth is unknown. He actually served as a general with Liu Bei, as Eastern Han Dynasty warlord. It must be noted that although they’re called warlords it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re evil; we have to understand that during those time it is the norm.

Guan Yu is one of the best-known Chinese historical figures throughout East Asia that has slowly taken on the world. As mentioned in my last post about Guan Yu or Kuan Kong, the web is a treasure trove of stories about his life. However, I don’t think anyone alive now can actually say for certain what are the most accurate facts and what are the embellishments because people by nature loves to romanticized a person they admire or idolized. However, please be assured that in the bits and pieces of his life that I will share here in this post I will share with you what are the stories that historically proven and accepted. In the absence of that ‘confirmation’, it doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen, but it only means that it may be not very accurate or that it is widely accepted but may be argued by some historians. kuan kong 2

What is not arguable here is Guan Yu is so much loved and so much respected that he is the only person who became a deity or Bodhisattva in three of the major oldest religion in China. Although there has been a lot of crossovers between Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, like Kuan Yin being a high goddess in Taoism, and giving rise to the unofficial religion called Chinese Buddhism, Guan Yu or Kuan Kong or Guan Gong, is the only historically human being who became a significant deity or lord in Taoism, a significant Bodhisattva in Buddhism, and a significant god in Confucianism.  Not to mention that he is also a prominent figure in Chinese folk religion.

Guan Yu is known for being a very good general. In fact, he won most of his wars with as little bloodshed as possible. He doesn’t believe in killing all the enemies. When he wins a war he will not take unnecessary prisoners, so the prisoners that he takes are only the high officials and he would always treat them with utmost humanity. Those soldiers who yield to him are given the choice to join his troops or leave and go home to their family. His wars always has a cause and he will only resort to go to war only if he is absolutely sure in his heart that the war will in the end will serve greater good and is only the last resort. This kind of attitude runs akin to the Buddhist teaching that states one cannot judge the means but one can only judge what’s inside the heart of a person. I hope this will not be taken out – of – context, but in a simplistic point of view, what it means is that at the end some means might be seemingly evil or bad but in the end it is the deepest intent of the heart of the person whether the act is really evil or not. I would like to expound on this teaching a little further and leave Guan Yu’s story for a while in the next paragraph.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama once shared a story. A guy went on a trip via a ship. While he was onboard the ship he came across a plot by two men to plant a bomb on the ship and kill all the people onboard as an act of terrorism. The man went to inform the captain, but after some reluctant investigation, for they didn’t believe him, it was said that there was no plot at all. Still he did his best to make people believe him, however, nobody believed him. He was totally left in despair as to how to save the people on board. As the time of doom arrives he decided to confront the two terrorists, his first approach was to talk them out of what they plan to do, but because the terrorists perceived that he is a threat to what they have set out to do they manhandled him, brought him to their cabin to either bound him there or kill him. All throughout the man never feared for his life but he feared for the life of the hundreds of people onboard the ship. He knows that he has to do something otherwise all the people on the ship will perish, but he also knows that it is not only the people onboard the ship that will perish but their family will also grieve for them. He was left with no choice and although he knows what he needs to do is wrong, in the end he was left with no choice but to fight the two terrorists and hurt them enough to restrain them. In the process, he accidentally killed both terrorists. There is another version of the story that says he also died with them, an act of suicide that also killed the other terrorist. Whatever the version of the ending the message is quite clear. Killing and suicide are both considered graved sin one that causes eons of negative karma, but the man was reborn as a high lama that is because according to the Dalai Lama, while the act itself alone is pure evil, the deepest intent, meaning deep in his heart, it was not simply to kill the two men, but to save hundreds of live and prevent several more the pain of grief. Superficially speaking this is a Buddhist concept that can be easily abused. But let us always remember that in the end it is not our fellowmen’s judgment that we must be wary of but our own deep conscience and that of karma.

kuan kong 4Going back to Guan Yu, one of the most famous verified story about him was when he took a hit from an arrow. It was a poisoned arrow and the doctor needs to clean his wound right to the bone. He wants to administer a strong alcohol (medicinal wine) to Guan Yu so that he won’t feel the pain, or at the very least he will be able to tolerate the pain as he would open and clean it down to the bone. Guan Yu refused to take the alcohol because he believes taking the alcohol will totally cloud his mind. Please note that at this point he is already showing some signs that his belief are leaning towards Buddhism. For if he were purely Taoist, it would have been fine for him to drink the medicinal wine even if it clouds his mind. For Buddhism, medicinal wine are allowed as long as it doesn’t cloud your mind so much that you are unable to control it. What happen next are two different versions of the story. One version states that he didn’t take the wine but instead went into deep meditation by concentrating on a single matter and in his case he choose to play Chinese chess with himself, and that he totally didn’t feel any pain, even if the doctor was scraping his wound down to the bone to make sure there are no poison left. The other version is that he felt the pain but still bravely faces it rather than cloud his mind with the effects of medicinal wine. Personally, I’m unable to make a decision, which is true, because if he is a practicing Taoist or Buddhist, and if his practice is really deep already, being ‘operated’ without pain relievers, in his case medicinal wine is not impossible. But the point of importance here, is that he already showed signs of refusing wine for the reason that he doesn’t want to cloud his mind, which is a Buddhist teaching. I raise this point because it is later on very important part of his life for him to be accepted as a Bodhisattva in Buddhism. This is important because historians are not clear as to what his religious belief was.

Guan Yu is a celebrated war general, and he always wins a war until towards the end of his life. He was part of the ruling dynasty, but towards the end he notice that his leader is becoming selfish and goes to war not because it is the last resort but he simply wants to conquer more lands and wealth. He decided to break away and vowed to protect the weak. He became a minority, and it is said that in the last war he went to he already knew that he and his troops are going to be betrayed and that he will die, he figured this out when an oracle was done, something that is usually done during his time. They usually consult either a Taoist oracle or a Buddhist oracle to determine whether they should go to war. The oracle showed that he will lose the war and that he will die, but he has to go to this war for a long term good. So he went to war and true enough he and his family and closest friends were betrayed and they were captured.

His ‘archenemy’ who used to be his leader has great respect for him that he refused to kill Guan Yu, something that was totally unacceptable during those times. Not killing Guan Yu is a sign of great weakness and will render him a coward and a lame leader. To avoid killing Guan Yu and simply make him a prisoner for life he has show the people is of poor moral and a scum that needs to suffer imprisonment for the rest of his life.

As a ploy he decided to put Guan Yu in a cell full of women. Unverified stories states that Guan Yu was put amongst the wives and daughter of his friends. But Guan Yun didn’t give in to carnal desires instead he made sure that he became protector of said women. Seeing that this ploy didn’t worked. Guan Yu was then transferred to a better prison and he was imprisoned with naked virgin courtesans and was given permission to deflower them, still Guan Yu didn’t give in to carnal desire, instead he took time out too teach them to read. At the end, he was reluctantly sent to his death. kuna kong

Verified reports states that several weeks before his death, his consciousness would always appear to a monk. And he would ask him to read different sutras so that he will reach enlightenment. This is an important factor in the story and is largely the reason why he became a Bodhisattva. The question is whether his Bodhisattvahood was largely due to a testimony of a single monk? The answer is no, because while the testimony of this monk was the one that is largely popular, there are other numerous both verified and unverified reports that says that before his death his consciousness would appear to different monks to ask for a sutra reading. Also, all these monks so a vision that Guan Yu received enlightenment. In fact, some of these testimonies where not found out until the death of some the monks who saw these visions, for they were never shared but written in their testimonies or orally shared to their students or disciples.

In my last post, I already made mention of the fact that Kuan Kong or Sangharama Bodhisattva is a wealth god and a protector, however, what most people don’t know is, and I myself has temporarily forgotten about this is that he is also a Bodhisattva that helps safeguard marital relationships. This is because in his lifetime, Guan Yu, exhibited extreme loyalty and faithfulness to his wife. He never took on a concubine, or visited courtesan houses, although it was a norm during his time.

kuan kong pendantTo honor and pay homage to Sangharama Bodhisattva, it is highly recommended for you to get his image. Please choose the one that has a beautiful fierce face. Wearing a pendant of his image is also highly recommended. I myself decided to get more Kuan Kong pendant, and of course, Kuan Kong or Sangharama Bodhisattva is one of the Bodhisattva that I featured in my Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant.

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.
