The Three Penalties – Earth: Another Thing to Worry About this 2018 Year of the Earth Dog and an Introduction to the the Three Penalties!

Published Pebrero 9, 2018 by jptan2012

I know that the forecast this year is quite bad already and so I debated whether I should even introduce the concept of 3 Penalties or what is sometimes referred to as 3P. However, this is an important topic to talk about now because right now we are also affected by a Three Penalties. But before that what is a 3P? While I can’t discuss fully here what is a 3P because it will need a book to be able to fully discuss it, I will discuss here though it briefly just to make you understand what it is in its most basic form.

Three Penalties or Three Penalty as it is called by some Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui consultants, is when a series of 3 combinations of Chinese Animal Zodiac creates a certain conflict that will create some trouble. Although not very popular amongst Feng Shui enthusiasts, this is actually quite a common phenomenon in Feng Shui. However, there are times that the combination is so negative that it creates a big problem. These times are very rare but when it happens it has really to be dealt with.

There are people who will have a 3P in their bazi chart/Paht chee chart. Again, this personal 3P are easily dealt with by giving them a name that will contradict the effect of the 3P. Or by letting them wear an amulet or a Feng Shui charm. There are 3Ps that are so minor that one need not do something. However, there are 3Ps that are so bad that one has to deal with it. One of the worst 3P to have is the “Chi Shi Three Penalty” which is formed by the combined presence of any of the three Chinese Animal Zodiac – Dog, Ox, Dragon, Sheep. The combined presence of any of these 3 animal signs (Dog – Ox – Dragon / Dog – Ox – Sheep / Ox – Dragon – Sheep) indicates that one has one of the worst Three Penalties or 3P, namely the “Chi Shi Three Penalty”. This 3P is also called Three Penalties – Earth because they are all of earth elements.

Having this 3P – Earth on your personal element will require you to deal with it, because the 3P – Earth in men will likely result to being imprisoned at one point in their life. Having this 3P in women will likely result to them having a torturous life. They may be battered wife, whether emotionally, psychologically, or mentally.

I have seen this happened several times. I have an uncle who was afflicted with the 3P. He was my father’s eldest brother, I don’t really understand as to why his Feng Shui consultant didn’t really see this, because I know he consult one. Anyway, my uncle was a really successful businessman even at a very young age. He helped sent some of his siblings to school, and he also helped the wife of his family. On top of that, he also was a very generous person. He has 13 children, and was able to invest on 5 houses in one village alone. He also runs 7 businesses in the 1970’s and 1980’s. He also runs several businesses, and he is a good man.

I was very young then, but one day he just informed his siblings that he is running to the Dominican Republic, and to make the long story short he has to do this because he is a wanted man because his business allegedly owes some big business people a huge amount of money. After the confusion has dissipated, it was found out that his best friend scammed some people of their investment.

He run to the Dominican Republic because there was no extradition treaty there, he later on went to China. When he was visited by my cousin, as my cousin shared, my uncle told my cousins that living in Dominican Republic then afterwards in China is like a prison sentence in itself. Because he was unable to do anything and he’s unable to see his family.

When I was learning Feng Shui, his case was one that I studied and there I saw the he was afflicted with 3P – Earth!

In more than 20 years of studying and doing Feng Shui, I have encountered the 3P – Earth several times, and I have seen the damaged done by this 3P – Earth to a lot of people. Sometimes, a lot of these people are really successful then all of a sudden something happens that will make them meet their downfall. The sad thing a lot of these are not due to their own mistakes but rather that of somebody else.

I have two women readers who are physically, emotionally and mentally battered. They are battered women. One of them was forever rendered slightly invalid because of physical torture she received from her husband.

I want to share this now because I want you to understand what Three Penalties is, and the worst of all these 3 Penalties is 3 Penalties – Earth!

If one has this, one should have this fixed right away. This can be done by a Taoist or Buddhist ritual or by having a powerful amulet which will depend on the actual configuration of the bazi chart of the person.

But then let’s go back to why I need to introduce you the 3P concept.

Because this year, because of the special configuration of the stars of the year, the people born under the signs of the Dog, Ox, Dragon, and Sheep are affected by the 3P – Earth. The Rat who is extremely affected by numerous bad stars like the Wu Wang is also affected by the 3P – Earth.

What does this mean? This mean the already challenging year may even be more challenging in some ways. A lot of this concerns may have to do with legal problems or even psycho- emotional torture or bullying.

One should not take this concern lightly because the last time a strong 3P happened was in 2010. This was a special 3P because it didn’t exist for the whole year, but rather for a single day only. It occurred in May 22, 2010. This is a Three Penalties combination of the Tiger, Monkey, and Snake. Note that having these signs on your chart doesn’t necessarily mean that you have the 3P, it has a certain configuration that can only be determine thru a Feng Shui computation. What really happened on that day because the 3P was ruled by Metal cutting down Wood, it caused an accident. A plane crush on that day killing 159 people.

So going back to the 3P – Earth this year? Since this is largely an Earth element 3P, one has to exhaust. Not destroy it but exhaust it. To exhaust the earth element of the 3P – Earth one has to have metal but the year is depleted of the metal element. So, one has to wear more gold or metal. Remember gold is more powerful than ordinary metal.

Wearing more gold is one cure. But it is better if the metal is made of an image of a Buddha, especially Amitabha Buddha and/or Medicine Buddha. One other cure is to have the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras and Lama Atisha Combined Amulets.

Experiencing Some Bad Luck or Feeling Down? Audit What You Are Watching, or Reading!

Published Abril 20, 2017 by jptan2012

It has been about 3 or 4 years since I’ve stopped watching TV. Why did I stop watching TV? The reason is quite simple; a lot of the things that I see on TV are affecting me negatively.

Whether we admit it or not, what we see or hear or read affects us. It may have an effect on us mentally, psychologically, or emotionally. But the truth is it affects our chi or aura also, and being exposed to a lot of negative things on TV, even the one that are supposedly or allegedly funny will definitely affect us.

I still watch movies, and I do read a lot, but we have more control on what type of movies we watch, or books that we read. It is not as easy as to get ‘hypnotized’ to continue watching or reading, as it is on TV.

This has never been more apparent than with a former colleague. She would regularly talk to us about the dramas she watches on TV, and then I also notice that she would regularly complain about the drama that is happening in her life. When she found out that I studied Feng Shui she asked me what she should do to improve her life.

For some reason, I just thought that I should tell her to stop watching drama and horror movies, and any other seemingly harmless shows but affects us more than we realized. Surprisingly she heeded my advice and months later she told me that her life has greatly improved.

The Power of a Prayer Wheel: A Personal Testimony

Published Disyembre 2, 2012 by jptan2012

1prayerhweel2If you are a regular reader of this blog, you’d know by now that I’m a great believer of the PRAYER WHEEL. In fact, I’ve written it a number of times, one of which is entitled – THE POWER OF A PRAYER WHEEL – and another time I shared about its power in a post entitled – A PERSONAL TESTIMONY: TAPPING INTO BUDDHISM, TAOISM, AND FENG SHUI FOR A POSITIVE OUTCOME OF A DELICATE SITUATION.

Today, I would like to once again tell you about a recent miraculous experience that I had about the powers of the Prayer Wheel.

I recently went to Cebu where we’re to have a big event. However, two days before the event we were told by the organizers that we haven’t been granted a permit by the mayor of Cebu City and Mandaue City. We need their permit because we are suppose to bike around both cities.

This created a lot of angry heads because all of us has been unintentionally misled that there’d be no problem in getting the permit. With two days before the event, and it being a Friday afternoon, our event is on a Sunday, everybody was hopeless and not very optimistic that we’ll still be able to get the permit.

Not pushing through with the event is going to be a big disgrace to all the companies involve because we’ve flown in some media from Manila to cover the event, invited all the media in Cebu also to cover the event, and most of all, the foreign principals of the companies involve flown in from their respective countries just to be at the event.

After some bickering and a number of threat to go to court, some of us has convinced the group to let cooler heads prevail and to discuss what we can do. The group agreed that there’s nothing else we can do except to go to the respective LGUs involve and ask for the permit. But then again we came to that decision because there’s really nothing else that we can do, but we also know that we’ve got nothing to lose in trying again. Nobody thought of verbalizing that it’s already a Friday afternoon (2pm).

It was decided that we’d separate ourselves into 2 groups. I together with one of my client will go to the office of the mayor of Cebu City, while my assistant and another group of client will go to the office of the mayor of Mandaue City.

I didn’t put up much hope that we’ll accomplish anything but as mentioned we’ve got nothing to lose. I’m just happy that I’m wearing my WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, which has the Victory Banner.



The back side of the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA MANTRA BLESSING PENDANT has the images of the Victory Banner, Lung-Ta or Windhorse, the seed syllable of the Goddess Tara - TAM, and the symbolic script of the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA, WISH FULFILLING MANTRA, and the NEGATIVE KARMA CLEANSING MANTRA.

As mentioned in my previous posts, the VICTORY BANNER or BANNER OF VICTORY is a very good Feng Shui tool of Buddhist origin to help ensure that we will be successful in our endeavors.

However, I also note, that the VICTORY BANNER is not really the charm for getting luck in last minute situations like this. Nevertheless, I’m also fortunate enough to be wearing my PRAYER WHEEL pendant! Prayer Wheel Pendant

So while we were on our way to the office of the mayor of Cebu City, I kept on spinning my PRAYER WHEEL pendant, at the same alternately chanting the mantra(if you want to know more about mantras, do read my post entitled – Mantra: The Instrument to Tap the Power of Symbolic Sound, Script, and Thought) OM MANI PADME HUM and mentally stating the intent, which is to be able to get a permit. My clients were asking me what am I doing, whether I’m trying to invoke some miracle, and all I said is that yes I’m trying to invoke some miracle. They laugh a little but also said that they hope it works.

When we got to Cebu City Hall, we saw the mayor coming out of building. We felt compelled to approach him, thankfully he has very few security and they’re not very tight, and I was able to talk to introduce myself, tell him about our dilemma and that we desperately need a permit. He didn’t really ask for a lot of details but instructed a guy to call up the City Administrator to inform him that he the mayor has given the permit, all he they need to do is to prepare and expedite the paper works!!!

One down! My clients all said that the ‘magic’ seems to be working. We also decided that they will stay and wait for the permit and that I should join the other group who at that time was told that the mayor that they want to see is currently in a meeting and won’t be able to see them until early evening. Before I left, my clients jokingly told me to keep on spinning the pendant and create another magic.

On my way to Mandaue City, I decided to continuously spin my prayer wheel pendant and again I continuously chant the mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, which is OM MANI PADME HUM, and alternately mentally stating the intent.

When I got to Mandaue City Hall, I saw the other group still waiting to be escorted inside. At that time, there’s nothing else we can do but except to wait, and from time to time plead that we be allowed to see the mayor. After about 15 minutes after I got there, an elderly woman came out to ask us why do we need to see the mayor or the city administrator. My assistant explained the situation, and why do we need to have the event. She went inside again, telling us to wait while she checks out what she can do. Nobody went to see us again for the next 30 minutes and we were all losing hope, although, I still kept on spinning my prayer wheel. 45 minutes after the lady left us she came out with a piece of paper, and informed us that we have the permit!!!!

Needless to say everybody was happy! The event was very successful, and those who said hurtful things at the heat of the moment started apologizing. Those who were at the receiving end of the hurtful words accepted the apologies and there were two people who requested that I get them a prayer wheel and several of them asked me about the prayer wheel.

My prayer wheel pendant is from Nepal and has been with me for several years now. I’ve been thinking of replacing it for quite some time now because it is no longer in the best condition and the top has started to dislodge. Although, I must say that it is still very powerful and effective. However, on that same trip I went to Shangri-La Mactan, and while I was monkey-ing around with some friends at the beach side I lost balance got dipped in the water while still wearing my prayer wheel pendant. I guess that’s a clear sign that I should get a new prayer wheel…and I will because the Prayer Wheel is one of the most powerful Buddhist tools that can be use as a Feng Shui amulet, available to us!!!
