2017 Year of the Fire Rooster Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars Formula, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: A Balance Chart But A Conflicting Year (Part 1)

Published Disyembre 21, 2016 by jptan2012

A lot of people have been asking me as to why I haven’t posted anything for more than a week. That is because I ran of banked stories to post because of hectic November and December and also I have to do the Feng Shui analysis for 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster. This takes a lot of time for me to compute and analyze.

In the previous years, I would write my forecast in January so that it doesn’t interfere with the traditionally busy month of December. I do this because I don’t a pool of people analyzing the year’s Feng Shui for me, instead, I have to this on my own, do the computation myself then after that do the analysis. Thus it is easier to do it in January. Furthermore, I want to disabuse the belief that the energies of the year starts in January, because it starts either every February 4 of the year or when Chinese New Year comes in.

However, last year I broke this tradition because the energies of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey came early. This year, the Year of the Fire (Intense) Rooster is no different. It’s energies can already be felt by January 4, 2016 and it will already mix the with tail end of the annual energies of 2016 and the monthly energy of the last month of the lunar calendar.

I write this post with a little trepidation. 2017’s Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart is quite balance, which is totally different from last year’s chart, and that is a good news. However, amongst the 4 pillars of the chart, only one pillar has a harmonious relationship, the rest are actually destructive pillars. This is not totally surprising because a year is rarely, in fact almost never totally good or totally bad. But what is a cause for concern for me is that the chart indicates a calamitous or cataclysmic event in the 3rd quarter of the year. This can be a worldwide occurrence or it can be patches of smaller (per country) cataclysmic event that will have a worldwide impact. Before I move on to discussing these things in detail, I would like to make clear again, like every year, that this forecast is base on analysis of the Paht Chee Chart / Bazi Chart of the year, together with the Flying Stars and the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. I’m not psychic, this doesn’t come from channeling an energy to make a prediction, rather I compute the bazi chart and make an analysis about it.

Now the question is how accurate are the forecast, and note that I use the word forecast and not prediction, well, as pointed out by readers I have a high batting average and I say this with extreme humility. To this day, it is only this blog who has brazenly written about the Yolanda tragedy (Typhoon Haiyan) that struck Central Visayas before it happened and not in hindsight. While I was not able to pinpoint that it will be in Leyte, I clearly pointed out that a natural calamity followed by a shortage of food will struck somewhere in Visayas in the Philippines. This was forecasted and a reader remembered and pointed it out. This was followed by the extreme heat weather forecast, then the earthquake in Nepal, and lastly by the forecast of the presidential elections in the Philippines and the financial instability that is happening now. And so I say that I write this post with a little trepidation because of some things that the chart shows may happen this year.

Anyway, I think I’m getting ahead of myself. Now allow me to share with you the year’s Bazi / Paht Chee.

For those of you who are familiar with the Bazi / Paht Chee you will notice that the first good news that I can share with you is that all five elements, namely wood, metal, water, fire, and earth made an appearance in the chart. This is good because this indicates that the year is a balance year. It’s been quite some time since we had a balance year and as you may remember, 2016 was one of the worst imbalanced years with the total absence of the fire element. Superficially speaking this 2017 should be a harmonious year, and since all elements are present, it also indicates that there should be a lot of resources available and that there should be stability. But if you notice I used the word ‘superficially’ because the four pillars indicates, as already mentioned earlier, that it is conflicting or in disharmonious state. That is true for the 3 pillars out of the 4 pillars. Furthermore, the ruling Chinese Zodiac, which is the Rooster is also afflicted with the #3 Flying Star or Argument Star, so this sort of negates that harmonious state of the presence of all the five elements in the Bazi Chart. More on about the #3 Flying Star affliction later.

Before I discuss the implications of each pillar. I would like to share with you first some of the luck controlled by each of the element.

fireThis year Wealth Luck is controlled by the Fire element. So those of you who have a high fire element in there Bazi or Paht Chee is somehow assured of wealth or financial luck coming your way. This means that it would be easier for you to get wealth luck compared to other people. To enhance this, one can simply wear more red or wear a red gemstone. Putting light in your front door is also a very powerful way of enhancing this energy; just make sure your front door is not in the North. Furthermore, one can carry a lighter and light the lighter several times a day.

earthPower Luck is controlled by the Earth Element, and this year it is quite important to have power because while it has determined a lot of things for a person, this year that energy will be doubled. Also in the 3rd and 4th quarter of the year, one has to have power for one to have access to wealth luck. For those whose Bazi / Paht Chee has a very high earth element is assured already of being a little bit more powerful than most people. The Earth element is one of the most important element this year, because it controls a lot of things. To enhance this energy do wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (also called Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) and one should wear more gems or semi – precious stones. Wearing citrine or topaz is one of the best stone to wear this year.

waterFriendship Luck is controlled by the Water Element. This year the water element is quite high so it indicates that instead of friendship and support that energy is turn into competitiveness. It will not be surprising if friends back stabbed friends to get more of a winning advantage, thus this brings us back to the importance of having more power. Let me clarify here that when I say power this doesn’t refer only to actual power that comes with a position, but rather also more subtle power that comes from within. Furthermore, to deflect the negative effect of this energy, one will do well to wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet(1) or a Vajrapani Ruel(1). Normally, we can suggest a harmony charm or cure, but for this year a harmony charm will not have much effect for the effects of this energy.

metalResources Luck is controlled by the Metal Element. If you notice, the suggestion is to wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva made of gold. Why? Because one will also need the energy of a metal to have resources, which is quite an important aspect of having power. Resources here refer not only to the physical and tangible resources, but also life chi or inner chi resources.

woodIntellectual Luck is controlled by the Wood Element. There is only one wood in the chart and this means that intellect doesn’t really play much of a factor in the wielding of power, and this is quite scary, because it shows that a lot of people especially those who are in power and who are near a powerful person will not use much of their brains. However, while this is weak, it also presents an opportunity for us to tap into the energies of the wood element for us to have an upper hand. Wearing a citrine this year will already enhance that energy but if one can have a petrified wood or be surrounded by trees or plants or wear wood jewelries, then one can have access to more Intellectual Luck. Who knows this might make a lot of differences. In fact, I personally think more intellect will make a lot of difference.

Looking at the Bazi Chart, first we are reassured that it indicates that this year will be dominated by what I would call ‘action energy’. Meaning more people will be inclined to see and act on positive things, on top of that, more people will tend to be more cooperative. Politically speaking this may be a good thing because people will tend to look for more positive things from the government.

However, we all see that at the first pillar of the Bazi /Paht Chee, which is one of the more important pillar in the chart and rules the first quarter of the year, the Heavenly Stem Yin Fire is destroying the Yin Metal element of the Rooster. This indicates that the start of the year may be a little challenging in terms of personal goals and also for wealth or financial aspect. Somehow we are able to see that start of this challenges already, especially in the Philippines when the peso continues to be weak even with the influx of remittances from the Overseas Filipino Workers sector coming in. The BSP Governor (BSP stands of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas or in English Central Bank of the Philippines) has also express apprehension with how the peso is doing in the international market. Other countries might also experience the same financial crisis because this is not true only to the Philippines. However, this is where the nation’s leader comes in, depending on how they manage the country, and handle the energies of the year, this may still be reversible or at the very least tempered.

On a personal level, the start of the year will also make most people (not all) that things are not taking off the way they want it to be. It will be more difficult and people might encounter a lot of problems along the way. To help counteract these negative energies of the first quarter, which will have a lasting effect on the rest of the year, one will do well to wear a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel(2) or a Kalachakra pendant made of gold or jade.

I’ll jump to the hour pillar first because this is another disharmonious pillar. This pillar rules the last quarter of the year. In this pillar you’ll see that the Yang Earth is destroying the Yang Water element of the sign of the Rat. This indicates a very strong instability for corporate worlds and most especially politically. Furthermore, it shows that the last quarter of the year may be a little turbulent; this is both for financial and personal life. Most Chinese Zodiac Animal signs are affected, especially those whose sign has an intrinsic elements of Earth, Wood, Water, and Fire. The only one that was spared is those whose intrinsic element is Metal. To counter this, it is advisable for one to wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa). It is also better if this is worn as gold for you to have more of the metal energy that one needs. However, this is something that you don’t just wear on the last quarter, you need to store up on the energy bestowed by wearing the image Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha (Bodhisattva Earth Store), so it is advisable to wear this as early as January of 2017.

ksitigarbha pendant

From my personal collection. A rare Red Amber Ksitigarbha. If wearing it as a pendant, I prefer the image with the five leave crown. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to get a Ksitigarbha pendant unless you’re from Malaysia, Hong Kong, or Singapore. FOR THIS YEAR IT IS IMPORTANT TO WEAR THE IMAGE OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA IN GOLD.

Let us now examine the 3rd Pillar of the Paht Chee, which is the Day Pillar, a pillar that rules the third quarter of the year. For those of you who are familiar with the relationships of the elements, you’ll see right away that this is another disharmonious pillar, but this time it is the earthly branch Yang Earth element of the Dog that destroys the Yang Water of the Heavenly Stem. This indicates that the third quarter is going to be ruled by some strong power. This may be good or bad depending on who has the power, and thus superficially speaking it depends on who the leader is. However, we mentioned earlier that there is what I call ‘action energy’ or people might tend to be more cooperative. Taking that into consideration there might be a subtler power but might prove to be more effective in the long run. But what is scary here whether who has the power whether good or bad this might still have some destructive effect. A possibility of a significant calamity is also possible this 3rd quarter. Again, for this it would do well to tap on the energy of Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa (Earth Store Bodhisattva), and it will do well for one to have the Vajrapani Ruel(3) or a gold or jade Kalachakra pendant.

Let us now examine the 2nd Pillar, which is the Month Pillar and has significant effects on the 2nd quarter of the year. Putting this last in the analysis of the pillars only because this one brings good news. And it is important to be forewarned about the negative first before we concentrate on enhancing the good. The 2nd Pillar is one pillar that has a harmonious relationship. How does this translate to us? It means that the 2nd quarter of the year may be the best time of the year; especially those who want their project to take off.

This year the hidden stem also produced a lot of special stars; some of them are good some are bad. First, there is the Peach Blossom Star, which is depending on your current situation may be either good or bad. This star may help bring lovers and life long partners into your life. However, this also brings in third party problems for those who are already married or attached. Especially affected to the negative effects of this star are those couple that sleeps on their bad directions. Unfortunately, this is something that I cannot discuss here because this varies from one person to another.

The hidden stem also produced the Mentor Star, which means some of us can tap into the power of influential people or those elder either in years or experience to help achieve our goals. This also means that when you tap into the power of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities, Goddess, or Taoist Gods you can get more help. To activate this star, it will do well to wear an image of a Buddha or a Bodhisattva. Some of my favorites for this star are the image of Buddha Sakyamuni (Buddha Shakyamuni), Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara(1) (also called Kuan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon) or Bodhisattva Sangharama (also called Qie Lan Sheng Chong Pu Sa, Qie Lan Pu Sa, or popularly known as Kuan Kong which is also spelled as Guan Gong). This year if you are wearing an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha) it also serves as tapping into the power of the Mentor Star.

Kuan Kong Gold Pendant

Those people born under the year of the Dragon because they have the Heavenly Protector Star! This is one of the most auspicious stars produced by the hidden stem of the year. Having this star helps you get protected from the negative energies of the year. To help further strengthen this star it is highly advisable for one to wear a very powerful amulet or an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva.

Those are some of the good stars produced by the hidden stem of the year’s Paht Chee Chart or Bazi Chart. However, there is one very strong negative star that was also produced by the hidden stem of the year’s Bazi /Paht Chee chart. This is the Malevolent Star or what others call Aggressive Star. This star helps strengthen the negative aspects of power. So wrong things might become more pervasive. Everybody is affected but people born under the year of the Rat are most affected. This also indicated a more competitive financial scenario and political scenario. Furthermore, this also shows that businesses will become more ruthless, all these has a negative connotations is each one of us. To help insulate and protect yourself from this star, it is advisable for you to have a very powerful amulet or symbol like the Vajrapani Ruel(4) or a gold Kalachakra pendant. Having the Traditional Sutra Amulets like The Diamond Sutra or The Sutra On The Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva in your home or office will also help insulate you from the negative effects of this hidden star.

On the Part 2 of this post, I will discuss what’s in store for 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster base on the Flying Stars Formula and 24 Mountain Stars Formula.

Chant – A – Mantra (7) & Recite – A – Sutra (8): Additional Protection from the Double Illness Star and Double Wu Wang in the Northeast!

Published Nobyembre 4, 2016 by jptan2012

Any Feng Shui enthusiasts and Feng Shui students would have known by now that the month of November (starting on November 7, 2016 – December 6, 2016) a lot of us will have to be very careful and be ready for double negative energies brought about by the combination of the Annual Flying Stars and Monthly Flying Stars.

Note: To understand this post better you can read the first two posts about it. 1. Double Wu Wang Whammy for People Born in the Year of the Ox and Tiger this November. / 2. Is the Double Wu Wang in the Northeast this November Fatal?

First, the most dreadful star (#5 Flying Star / Wu Wang / Five Yellow Star / 5 – Yellow Star) is doubled in the Northeast this month, which means people born under the year of the Ox and Tiger, Middle Sons (regardless of age, regardless whether they are married or single and whether they still live with their parents or not), and people staying in the Northeast (bedroom, office or even if your house is in the Northeast of the village or subdivision) and people whose house or office door faces the Northeast are all affected by the Double Wu Wang. This is the most dreadful star in the Flying Star formula, and all Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui consultants caution us about this, and having it doubles this year in the Northeast brings tremendous stress to those who have to deal with it. Those who have to deal with it are the people I mentioned above.

But at the same time, the #2 Flying Star, which is known as the Illness Star, a star that causes not only grave illness but also serious accidents that may lead to long term illness or death is also doubled this month. We are all susceptible to this, but people who are affected by the Wu Wang, as mentioned above, are doubly affected. As a precaution, it is highly advisable for you to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet if you have it.

For those who are affected by the Double Wu Wang in the Northeast can wear the Vajrapani Ruel and a gold 5 – Element Pagoda (Five Element Pagoda) pendant, and a gold Kalachakra pendant. Carrying or surrounding yourself with Traditional Sutra Amulets like THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA or THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA or THE DIAMOND SUTRA will also greatly help and offer much protection.

In my earlier post about the same topic, I also said that this is the time for one to rely and have faith on prayers. For Catholics you can do your novenas or pray your rosary. For Christians and Muslims you can pray to your God and have faith in Him. For Taoist, you can ask special protection Fu from your Taoist priest. For Buddhist and those who would be willing to practice how Buddhist protect themselves now can do the following suggestions found below.

Go to the temple and light incense everyday.

Go to the temple and bow to the images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas everyday.

Donate to the poor or who are in need with utmost sincerity.

Chant the following mantras (minimum) 108x a day everyday:

  • Mantra of Amitabha Buddha: OM AMI DEWA HRIH
  • Mantra of Medicine Buddha: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA
  • Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion Guan Yin: OM MANI PADME HUM
  • Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani: OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  • Mantra of Bodhisattva Cundi Avalokitesvara (Chundi Avalokitesvara): NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CALE CULE CUNDI SOHA
  • Mantra of the Protective Deity Kalachakra: OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

You can also Recite the following Sutras as often as you can:

Is The Double Wu Wang in the Northeast this November Fatal?

Published Nobyembre 3, 2016 by jptan2012

My article about the double #5 Flying Star (also called as Five Yellow Star or 5 – Yellow Star) or better known as Wu Wang this coming November was already posted as early as October 20, 2016, this is to give my readers enough time to prepare for the double Wu Wang whammy that will land on the Northeast. This means that everybody who is in the Northeast side of their house, office, room, or everybody whose house faces Northeast, or everybody whose house or office building faces the Northeast are greatly affected.

But more than that all people born in the year of the Ox or Tiger, or every middle born son, whether married or single, whether young or old, as long as you are middle born are affected.

The question now is whether it is fatal. I was bombarded with this question by a number of my readers because according to them Lillian Too on her website wrote that this star is fatal. I was looking for this reference but I was unable to see it, but I did see that she mentioned that one could get into a serious illness or serious accident.

Lillian Too is the world’s most famous Feng Shui expert and teacher. And obviously if she says something we should all take note of it and listen to what she has to say. Now the second question is do I agree that it can cause serious illness and accidents or as some readers asks whether it can be fatal.

To answer that allows me to explain it a little. Wu Wang or the Five Yellow Star or #5 Flying Star on it’s own is the most dreaded star. This star coupled with bad karma can be fatal, and so yes, it can be fatal.

When I first wrote the article, I didn’t want to cause some panic and was cautious to put in strong words, although I felt I already gave fair warning and had couldn’t stress enough how much caution all those who are affected has to take about this double whammy of Wu Wang(s) where the Monthly #5 Flying Star join forces with Annual #5 Flying Star on the Northeast.

I have written about the Wu Wang so many times already and every year I write about it that I will not go into details about it anymore. But needless to say, it is the most dreaded star that can cause so much misfortune. It can cause a lot of problems.

However, what I want to stress now is that yes it can be fatal, but fatal here may refer to not only death by illness or accidents but also fatal business wise or relationship wise. So everybody mentioned above should take extra precaution.

Furthermore, and it is important for all of you to take note of this, people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger, and middle sons (regardless whether you’re already 100 years old and lives in a different house already) who stays in the Northeast or whose house doors or office doors are in the Northeast are doubly affected. Why? Because the ruling sector of people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger, and middle sons is in the Northeast! This means you double the already doubled Wu Wang!

And wait, don’t forget that the ruling #2 Flying Star which is also known as the Illness Star, a star that causes not only illness but also grave accidents is doubled, and while everybody is affected, those who are already affected by the Wu Wang (those people mentioned above) are also more susceptible to this star because your overall energy is already weakened by the Wu Wang or 5 – Yellow Star.

Please read my earlier post – DOUBLE WU WANG WHAMMY FOR PEOPLE BORN IN THE YEAR OF THE OX AND TIGER THIS COMING NOVEMBER! – to understand more about it and also to ensure that you are familiar on how you can get protected.

Nevertheless, what I want to stress in this particular post, especially those who are doubly affected by the double Wu Wang whammy is that aside from protecting yourself with the cures I mentioned like the Vajrapani Ruel, gold Kalachakra pendant, gold Five Element pagoda pendant, 5 – Element Pagoda for the Northeast sectors, the Illness Suppression Amulet, the Traditional Sutra Amulet, AND YOU SHOULD ARM YOURSELF WITH THESE CURES, is that you wear more metal on your body. Wear more jewelries and for the month of November wear more white. But there’s one thing I would like to stress, this is also the time wherein you must have faith in the power of Sutras and Mantras, so recite some sutras and chant some mantras. If you’re a Christian then pray and believe in your God. Have faith! Having said that, you should go to church or temple more often. Go everyday if possible, genuinely and generously give more to those who are in need. These things should help protect you.

NOTE: Fire strengthens the Earth energy of the Wu Wang and Illness Star so avoid wearing very bright fire colors like red, violet, orange, and pink. So lighting candles inside the house or office is not also advisable, but lighting incense and candles in the temple or church is going to be helpful. In the same manner, yellow is an earth color so try to avoid this as well.

Is There A Feng Shui Relevance to All Souls Day?

Published Oktubre 31, 2016 by jptan2012

Ire, Loves Well, obviously the Chinese ‘All Souls Day’ or day of remembering the dead doesn’t happen in November 1, or to be more accurate about it on November 2. All Saints Day / All Souls Day is a big deal for a lot of Filipinos and perhaps Catholics in the world. But is there is Feng Shui significance or relevance to this special day?

For Chinese, especially those who are in the older generation, it is very important that we remember our ancestors or loved ones who passed away, this is taken as a sign of respect but at the same time, it is believed that we should not earn their ire by forgetting about them, or we should earn their approval so that they can help shower blessing upon the living. This is why remembering our loved ones or dead ancestors are important part of the life of a Chinese. In fact, a lot of us have images of our ancestors in our home, where we light incense and offer food on special occasions. The older generation will offer incense everyday. This may be a little too excessive.

In Buddhism, according to the Medicine Buddha Sutra, when a person dies his or her consciousness will undergo rebirth within 7 days or 21 days or 35 days or 49 days. I will clarify that it will go through rebirth on the first day, it will have to wait for 7 days, then if you didn’t go through rebirth on the 7th day then on the 21st day if not then it will be 35th day, until 49th day. If you don’t go through rebirth in the first 5 stipulated days, then you will sure go rebirth on the 49th day.

But rebirth doesn’t necessarily mean rebirth here on earth as human.

There are different levels of possible rebirth and starting from the bottom they are the following:

  1. Hell
  2. Hungry Ghost
  3. Animal Kingdom
  4. Human
  5. Asura
  6. Heavenly Beings
  7. Arhat
  8. Pratyekabuddha
  9. Bodhisattva
  10. Buddhahood

The first six are considered as the lower realms wherein the being still has an attachment and the last four are considered as the upper realm wherein the being or our consciousness no longer has any attachment. Once one is born in the upper realm, his or her consciousness no longer goes back to any of the lower realm.

It should be noted that for Catholics or Christianity, heaven is the ultimate goal, for Buddhism is a better place than the first five but it is still a place where in desire and attachment exist and one can still go down to the other realms. It is also not the most desired realm. I will talk about the 10 realms further in a future post.

I will also discuss the difference between Hungry Ghost and the Hell in another post.

But for now what I want to show is that for Buddhism, one can be born in different realms, until we reach Buddhahood.

So when a person dies, his consciousness or soul as Christians would call it will be born again in one of these realms. As humans 98% we will be born in either the realm of Hell or Hungry Ghost or Animal Kingdom or Human (again). If we have been good we might be born in the realm of an Asura or a Heavenly Beings.

This is where remembering and offering ‘good merits’ to our departed love ones or ancestors will become important. For example, your loved one or ancestor was born in the realm of the Hell or Animal Kingdom or Hungry Ghost, by offering good merits to them such as praying for them or chanting mantras or reciting sutras for them will shortened their suffering in the lower realms of Hell or Hungry Ghost or Animal Kingdom. On the other hand, if they were born in the realm of Human, by offering good merits to them their life will be better. If their current life is bad it will become better, if it is already good it will become even better. And if they were born as an Asura or Heavenly Beings then their life will even become better or they maybe pushed up to being born as Arhat or a Pratyekabuddha.

But this is the thing. Days like ‘All Souls Day’ are important because it forced us to remember them on these days. However, it certainly doesn’t mean that we should only remember them on this day. In fact, it is very important that we offer prayers or mantras or sutras or incense to them everyday. And by remembering them and offering merits to them everyday, we in turn make our life better. Because we are interconnected with each other. They may have a totally different life now but because of affinity with each other we are somewhat linked to each other. And if we send them merits, in a way we also get our own merits.

Guide Lines In Going To The Cemetery!

Published Oktubre 25, 2016 by jptan2012

cemeteryThe month of November is a double black month in the sense that the #2 Flying Star, which is also known as the Illness Star, a star that causes not only illness but grave accidents is doubled this month in the center. Furthermore, the most dreaded star, the #5 Flying Star or Wu Wang also called as Five Yellow Star is doubled in the Northeast. This affects all the people whose rooms (office / bedroom) are in the northeast, or whose house door or office door faces northeast, but most especially, people born under the year of the Ox and Tiger.

We all know that this means the month of November is going to be bad for those who are affected, as mentioned above, but also we have to be careful about being sick and accidents. This will not happen until November 7, 2016, but since we are going through Halloween, it is best to take precautions.

The cemetery or a columbarium is negative place, it is a place where yin energy rules. So going to the cemetery might not be advisable especially since we are going through a yin month. This is especially true for those born in the year of the Ox and Tiger.

But All Saints Day / All Souls Day is a big deal for a lot of Filipinos. We really have to go to the cemetery to pay our respect to our departed loved ones. So what do we do then?

First, make sure you go there in the morning, and don’t stay until in the evening. Because evening is considered as yin. Then make sure you go there at a time where a lot of people are in the cemetery, because having a lot of people creates a lot of yang energy, so it is better to be around the yang energy while you are at the cemetery. I know some people would like to go there before All Saints Day / All Souls Day so that it will not be too crowded. But it is better to go there while a lot of people are at the cemetery because, as mentioned, you will need the yang energy.

Make sure also you wear your powerful amulets. If you don’t have the Vajrapani Ruel or the Kalachakra pendant or Surangama Mantra Amulet, wear something you really believed in and are powerful and that you are sure will protect you.

 

It is also advisable to wear something bright and happy. Don’t wear black or blue.

On your way to the cemetery alternately chant the mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani – OM VAJRAPANI HUM – and OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT.  Stop only upon entering the site where your loved one is buried. Then first thing you should do is light a candle. Light a red candle if he/she has passed away more than 3 years. Then use yellow if under 3 years.

Also if possible, bring a Mantra Box (a device that plays mantras – see photo) and play it there while you are there. It’s best to play the mantra of Amitabha Buddha – NAMO AMITUOFO – or – OM AMI DEWA HRIH.

When leaving for a long period of time get a small mantra box like the one in the picture. Don’t get anythings that’s really fancy such as those with lights, they consume battery energy faster. These are more energy efficient and 2 AA Batteries will last for a longer period of time.

On your way out start chanting the two mantras again and then if possible swing by a temple and light an incense. If you can swing by a temple go and eat at a restaurant before going home.

When you get home, make sure you take off all your clothing and have them wash with a teaspoon of salt. You should also take a salt bath or shower. Remember that it has to be sea salt, rock salt, or pink Himalayan salt.

Wishes Fulfilled with the ‘Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant’ and a Big Business Break with the ‘Wealth and Master Protection Pendant’ – Personal Testimonies of Readers

Published Setyembre 18, 2013 by jptan2012

When I first started this blog I never thought I would be part, in a very small way, to a lot of wonderful ‘miraculous’ events in the lives of the people who would become my readers. Furthermore, I never thought the a simple Feng Shui charm that I designed incorporating the things that I’ve learned from my various Feng Shui teachers or masters, and from Buddhist monks and Taoist monks will create so much good things in the lives of a lot of people. What’s ironic is that these pendants were never designed for the public but rather for the use of my family, relatives, and to some extent some of our friends.

I’m talking about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT and the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT. The truth is these pendants were designed because of our (my family and I) frustrations about how we have to change Feng Shui cures or enhancers every years, and how do we have to wear a lot of things around our neck, wrist, fingers and have so much heavy objects around our pockets and bags. Furthermore, these Feng Shui cures and enhancers had to be replaced every year, especially, when they’ve become tarnished.

The first of these pendants is the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT; you can read more about it by clicking here. However, I no longer accept requests for the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, because it’s quite big and cost so much money. That’s the first story I would like to talk about.

At the back of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION are the Chinese character for 'THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN' and the images of the Three Celestial Guardians (provides protection against the 3 Killings), Five Element Pagoda (provides protection from the Five Yellow Star or Flying Star #5) and the Ksitigarbha Fireball (provides protection against the Argumentative Star).

Last, February 2013, a couple, a husband and wife businessmen contacted me. The first thing that I sense about them is that they’re a little ‘secretive’ about their true identity. While they have a house here in Manila, they’re mainly base in Cebu. After several conversations, I agreed to meet them. I suggested that we meet in a mall, but they requested that we meet in a hotel in Makati instead. I agreed.

When I saw them, I had the feeling that I’ve seen them before. The feeling is not that I vaguely know them but rather that I’ve seen them before. At the middle of our conversation, their son joined us, that’s when I realized that I’ve seen them on TV before. Their son is now trying to make a life for himself on a different industry while he still tries to help out in their family business.

They requested for the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, I told them that it is no longer available because of it is very expensive, but they insisted so I agreed to get them the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, one for each one of them. As it turned out, the husband is a devotee of THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN – SUN WUKONG, and is as long been looking for a gold or jade pendant that bares the image of the SUN WUKONG. For those who’ve read my post about THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN you’d know that SUN WUKONG is great for those who need money and who are in business.

'The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven' Monkey King called Sun Wukong is a very powerful wealth and protector god that's both highly revered in Taoism and Buddhism.

They told me that they’re bidding for a construction project in China and needs all the help they can get because they’re not necessarily the biggest company in the country, and neither are they the biggest company participating in the bidding, but that they really want this project. They said that it will be a long and tedious process and expects the result to come out in November or December.

Just about a couple of weeks ago they called me up again to tell me that they won the project. I told them that isn’t it quite early and they said that it is part of the good news that the Chinese end made an early announcement. It’s part of the good news because the agony of waiting is sometimes a little too much for them.

And what’s even greater news is that they got 5 more WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, not for themselves but for them to be able to sell it at half the price of how much they got it. They said, they want more people to experience the blessing of WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, and that it is their way of sharing the blessing.

Incidentally, I would like to stress that I still am not making the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT available to those who are requesting it, because it is really pricey. Almost as expensive as some of Lillian Too’s pendants.

The second good news is about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT. I have posted several personal testimony about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT and the truth is there are so much more about that I haven’t written about and there are several more emails or stories told me by readers who has requested for it.

This time it’s a story of a DJ and part time actress, but because she is somebody who might become famous in the next few months or years I will not use her first name initial and last name initial. I’ll just stick to her first name initial. A has been a radio DJ for quite some time now, and she has appeared in a movie before. However, she felt that her career has been stagnant even before it has taken off, also she has been in a long time relationship and although she and her boyfriend is about to get married, she’s a little bothered that both her parents and that of her boyfriend’s parents doesn’t approve of their relationship.

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.

I met A through a mutual friend who has gotten the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT himself. A is a very nice person and although she is part of a life that enjoys a lot of attention, I felt that she’s very humble and nice. I’m writing the story now because a month after getting the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, A got an offer for an endorsement of a food company, and after that she’s about to become the face of an advocacy campaign that’s just about to come out soon.

Furthermore, her mother has taken to liking his boyfriend already and her future mother – in – law has been reaching out to her by inviting her to dinners and lunches. She said it’s all because of the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

Stories like these give so much joy that something that started as personal thing has become bigger and has benefitted a number of people. But then again the pendants are quite pricey and not everybody can afford it. For those who can’t afford it please remember that reciting the WISH FULFILLING MANTRA and NEGATIVE KARMA CLEANSING MANTRA works as well.

Incidentally, I also have some good news about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET. Both are powerful Buddhist amulet or charms. I’ve always wanted to write about it but both will need special permission from a Lama before one can I write about them. However, I recently got the permission and will be writing about them tomorrow or in the next few days.
