The Folly of Having A Slanted Ceiling!

Published Setyembre 13, 2015 by jptan2012

slanted ceilingToday, allow me to share with you another Feng Shui Blunder. We usually place a ceiling to cover the main roof to drive off the heat, but more than that for Feng Shui it is important that our ceiling is flat as to signify a balance of energy. A slanted ceiling is bad because it signifies a “falling” off of energy.

I remember when a former colleague said that when they moved into a new house, they just seem to slowly lose their luck. Those are her very exact words. Knowing that I do Feng Shui she invited me to their house.

As soon as I entered, I noticed that their ceiling is slanted, and this is what is slowly taking off their luck. They are unable to fix their ceiling at that time, so I instead suggested putting lights on the lowest part or hang some crystals to put in some energy. And it worked for them!

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

Published Marso 19, 2015 by jptan2012

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Clearing Out Negative Energies Caused By Violence

Published Marso 13, 2012 by jptan2012

If you’ve experienced being robbed, you’d know how bad the feeling is. A friend who was robbed inside their gasoline station felt that she was physically violated. In fact, it took her awhile to get over the trauma. For a while, she was even unable to go out of her house or even look outside of their window.

If you happen to experience a really bad case of robbery or any kind of violence, I suggest that you immediately clear out the negative energy caused by the violent act. There are different ways of doing it. They can be a stand-alone ritual or you can do all three.

First, the Feng Shui Way…. Perfume Water with Salt…

Always make sure that you use rock or sea salt and never iodized or table salt.

Get a big bowl of water, put about a teaspoon of salt and a pinch of saffron or cinnamon into the water. Use the Perfume Water with Salt solution to clear the negative energies brought about by the robbery by using the solution to clean the doorways and windows of your home. Make sure that you have a little solution which you can put by your door, leave it there for three days. You also need to infuse a lot of Yang energy, do this by turning the lights on for 3 days.

Second, the Taoist Way… Kwan Kong, Incense, Flower, and Candle

The Taoist way of clearing out the negative energy brought about by any form of violence would require you to have an image of Kuan Kong, also known as Guan Gong, Kwan Kong.

In front of the image of Kuan Kong, light 2 pieces of red candle, offer some flowers (make sure that the flower doesn’t have thorns, so roses are not allowed), and light 9 pieces of incense sticks.

Call on Kuan Kong to help clear out the negative energies brought about by the violent incident. Leave 3 of the incense sticks in front of the image of Kuan Kong, put the other 3 by your door and go around the house with the other 3 lighted incense sticks. While going around the house or office continuously call on Kuan Kong to clean the place from negative energies brought about by the violent incident.

Third, the Buddhist Way… The Power of Mantra, Incense, and Salt

If you have a Buddhist altar, light some incense in front of your Buddhist images. Put bowl of salt on the altar. Say one mala each of the Medicine Buddha Mantra, Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin Mantra, Kalachakra Mantra, Wish Fulfilling Mantra and Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra. Blow on the salt after each mantra.

Go around the house or office and throw some salt around each of the room. Start at where the violence happens.

While going around the house continuously recite the Protection, Environment Purifying and Immediate Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra – OM AH HUM.

Make sure to leave the lights open and leave an incense in each of the room.

The Mantra of the Medicine Buddha is TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

The Mantra of Kuan Yin or Avalokitesvara is OM MANI PADME HUM

The Mantra of Kalachakra is OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

The Wish Fulfilling Mantra is OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT

The Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra is OM HANU PHASHA BHARA HE YE SOHA

You can also do all three rituals. One day for each ritual and start with either the Taoist or Buddhist ritual or make sure the Feng Shui is done on the third day.

Personally, I prefer doing all three rituals.
