I usually get my stones when I travel or in some selected few retailers in Ongpin (Philippine’s Chinatown), they are usually the small ones from Mainland China and are not commercialized and has not come out on TV. However, even in Ongpin they sell fake. Recently though I came across an online seller who has a FB page. So far I have observed that their stones are really nice and relatively affordable. A lot of my readers who got their crystals or stones from them are quite happy with the quality that they got. You can check them out by clicking here.

Please note though that I’m in no way connected to them or know them personally.

Myth Buster 18: You’ll Have Bad Luck If Your Chinese Animal Zodiac is the Opposing Ruling Animal Zodiac of the Year

Published Disyembre 31, 2014 by jptan2012

The husband of DU, my friend and reader, asked DU whether he’ll have a difficult year in 2015 because he was born under the sign of the Ox, and for those who are familiar with Feng Shui they know that Ox in the Chinese Animal Zodiac chart is right across the Sheep, which makes the Ox an ‘opposing’ sign of the Sheep.

The animal adjacent to your particular animal sign is usually considered as the opposing sign. This is usually because you have character traits that are totally opposite each other. It'll be harder for you to get along. However, I believe that relationships are work on so I personally don't subscribe to this so much, but I do acknowledge that it can be a little bit harder. However, the belief that you are going to be bad luck if your sign is the opposing sign really stems out from the Chinese government's meddling with Feng Shui practice.

However, the belief that you are going to be bad luck if your sign is the opposing sign really stems out from the Chinese government’s meddling with Feng Shui practice.

This is a very common misconception, which stems out from two factors. One, although I always say that relationships are worked on, the truth is its more difficult for people with opposing sign to get along harmoniously. They have to work on the relationship harder. For example, Ox is going to be more difficult to get along with a Sheep, a Rat with a Horse, and Pig with a Snake, so on and so forth. Please refer to the image. So taking this into consideration a lot of people believe that if you have an opposing sign you’ll naturally have a bad year ahead of you. However, this is not always the case. In fact, my own analysis for the year shows that for this year, most Ox born people will still have a good year ahead of them. You can read my previous posts about the forecast for the year.


 


 

The second factor why this belief came about is because of the communism of China. Mao ZeDong and his successors like Deng XiaoPing, strictly banned the use of Feng Shui, in fact, Feng Shui masters and/or experts are sent to hard labor. But, belief in Feng Shui is ingrained amongst Chinese, so like Buddhism and Taoism, the Chinese government was unable to totally repress it. So when the government realized that they couldn’t eradicate Feng Shui in people’s lives, they decided to control it instead.

It is said that although officially he has banned Feng Shui, Mao Zedong himself has continuously employ the services of Feng Shui masters for himself and for top government officials. This practice has been followed by Deng Xiaoping and up to the present leaders of China.

Communist China did to Feng Shui what they did to religion. They can’t take away Buddhism, Taoism, and Catholicism is the country so they controlled it instead. Most of you know about the religions in China having the official and unofficial version. Depending on whom you ask, the Chinese government believes that they have the official version, and the official religions whose leaders are mostly abroad to avoid being kidnapped by the government and put into forced ‘vacation’, are considered the unofficial version. But elsewhere, outside Mainland China, obviously the official version is the Church ‘controlled’ (for the lack of term) religion, and the unofficial is the Chinese government controlled religion. The control is so strict that the government names their own bishops or archbishops, and in the case of Tibetan Buddhism they kidnapped the real Panchen Lama and installed their own Panchen Lama. The 11th Panchen Lama was kidnapped last May 17, 1995 together with his whole family. Nobody has seen them since and the Chinese government has installed a fake 11th Panchen Lama!

Going back to Feng Shui, although the government doesn’t allow Feng Shui experts or masters to continue doing Feng Shui, it is said that they continue to practice Feng Shui under strict control of the Chinese government. They’re only allowed to do Feng Shui for high-ranking officials of the government. As a result a lot of them sneak out and practiced Feng Shui in Hong Kong and Taiwan. For the general public, the Chinese government then gave licenses for ‘illegitimate’ Feng Shui masters to do Feng Shui for the people. Thus a lot of Feng Shui misconception has arise from these government – controlled Feng Shui masters.

A lot these government – controlled Feng Shui masters knows only some very basic rules about Feng Shui, thus they will say that if the ruling animal sign is your opposing sign then you’ll have bad luck, and they were also the ones who said that North is really bad.

They may be considered correct if that’s the only thing you should consider, but Feng Shui is not a simple formula of opposing and friendly signs, because Feng Shui is about animal signs, bazi/Paht Chee, elemental formula, 8 trigrams formula, flying stars, 24 mountains, Ho – Tu, auxiliary stars, and a lot more. All these formula should not be taken as a stand alone, they should be a combination and their relation to each other should be considered!

It’s true that if your sign is the opposing sign of the ruling sign of the year, in this case for 2015 the Ox is the opposing sign of the Sheep, and if you only consider that formula then the sure answer is you’ll have a bad year. However, I remember the FM radio DJ, Chico Garcia, saying on radio once that he was told that he will have a bad year because his sign is a conflicting (opposing) sign of the year but then Chico Garcia said it turn out to be one of the best year of his life. Why? Because that’s not the only thing that should be considered. You have to consider all the other formulas; all the other factors that’s need to be considered.

Pi Yao is a Celestial Being that pleases the Tai Suey God.

Dou Mu Yuan Jun or Goddess of the North Star is a powerful Deity to counter the effects of Tai Suey. She is said to be the creator of all the Tai Suey Gods does has the power to rule or control over them.

Of course, you have to remember but if you’re sign is the opposing sign of the year, then you’ll definitely face the God of the Year or Tai Sui (also spelled as Tai Suey) or Grand Duke Jupiter. This is easily addressed by wearing or carrying an image of a Piyao (also spelled as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu) that will help appease the Tai Suey. Wearing an image of the Goddess of the North Star or Dou Mu Yuan Jun is also a very effective cure because she is the mother of all the Tai Sui Gods and is said to be the only one who can subdue them.

A Leisure Tour that Caused Several Years of Bad Luck

Published Marso 25, 2012 by jptan2012

In one of my previous posts at the start of the summer season here in the Philippines, I wrote about the different SIGNS OR OMENS OF A BAD TRAVEL LUCK and I also shared some FENG SHUI TIPS FOR A SAFE TRAVEL.

However, when we are on a vacation or on a leisure trip abroad it’s very easy for us to get excited and lose our Feng Shui consciousness. The different wonderful site and/or historical or cultural places sometimes cause us to do some Feng Shui blunders.

Several years back, I went on a trip to mainland China with a couple of friends, who happens to be married to each other. We mainly stayed in Beijing, and were easily lost in the wonderful cultural sites the place has to offer us. Part of our itinerary is a trip to the Great Wall of China and the famous Ming Tombs.

At the Ming Tombs we went down and entered some of the actual tombs and were mesmerize with the rich historical story behind the tombs, not to mention the beauty of the site.

Everything in that trip went really well, and we soon came back home and went back to our normal routine. However, the normal routine proved to be abnormal in the sense, we started having different challenges. My problem is about my work and career. I lost some money because somebody stole it from me. I’ve shared about this in one of my first posts.

My friends, who are married to each other, had bigger misfortune. A few months after we arrived, my guy friend lost his job, his wife, my girl friend, got pregnant which should be a joyful event but she had a miscarriage on her 3rd month of pregnancy. But more than that they also both went through several years of bad luck even if their Bazi, which was analyzed by a Feng Shui expert, indicated that both of them are going through a 5 year cycle of good luck.

It is only when I studied Feng Shui that I realized that the trip to the Ming Tombs could have caused the misfortune that befell us.

Another proof that visiting a Yin dominant place can be bad for your luck happened to a former officemate. A and her whole family went to Egypt. As expected they went to visit some pyramid where the whole family went inside the pyramid and different chambers, which as everyone knows are the tombs.

Maybe the effect with them is much more magnified because the whole family went inside and was affected by the Yin energy of the pyramid. Right after that trip, A’s mom had cancer, the father’s business started going bad and A herself started doing poorly in her work. Furthermore, A’s older brother started using drugs also.

I was no longer working with A when I found out about this, but she decided to ‘consult’ me because she knows of my Feng Shui background. She shared with me that out of desperation with all the bad luck that was happening to their family they consulted a psychic. This psychic told them that the whole family attracted a bad luck because they trespassed into a ‘spirit’ world. According to A the psychic didn’t know that they went to Egypt and entered the pyramid. A was not actually sure whether the psychic was referring to the pyramid because it happened more than a couple of years ago.

When she shared with me the story, I knew right away that the psychic was right and that A was also right in thinking that it was caused by their trip to Egypt.

If you’ve read my previous posts, you’d know that living spaces like malls, houses, and offices are Yang dominant places. On the other hand, cemeteries or even morgues are Yin dominant places. We must treat Yin dominant places with ‘respect’ and should not simply go there out of fun. There must be a purpose before we are really ‘allowed’ to go to a Yin dominant place and even then we should take a lot of precaution because going into a Yin dominant place may create some bad luck to the person who went inside the Yin dominant place. The effect may not be immediate, and sometimes if you wear some Feng Shui/Buddhist/Taoist amulets you won’t feel the effect at all, but it’s always better not to tempt fate.
