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.

Have Some Summer Fun But Be Conscious of Feng Shui!

Published Marso 18, 2015 by jptan2012

It’s summer once again in the Philippines, and a lot of people are going to the beaches or resorts again to have fun. Boracay, Panglao in Bohol, and Puerto Galera, among other destinations here in the Philippines are again teeming with tourists.

Some resorts in an attempt to make their pool aesthetically appealing creates some Feng Shui blunders that may be bad for those who swim.

And as tourist, remember in my earlier post that while yang energy is really good, please be aware that there is such a thing as too much yang energy and you should do try to get some rest.

But more than that, you should also be aware that there are a lot of resorts that may be aesthetically nice but may be bad in terms of Feng Shui. For example, some resorts loves putting a bridge over their swimming pools, and for us tourists we might find this beautiful, but remember swimming under the a bridge is like walking under a stair. It creates a lot of bad energy for us and might affect us long term.

Signs or Omens of a Bad Travel Luck

Published Marso 14, 2012 by jptan2012

It’s summer once again here in the Philippines and it’s vacation time for most of us, this means a lot of us will be traveling again, either by plane, ship or car. Boracay, Panglao, Palawan, Puerto Galera are some of the tourist spots here in the Philippines that’s going to be swarmed with local tourists. Flights to Caticlan and Bohol are again to be full, and the roads to Batangas is again going to be congested. Not to mention, Baguio is going to be crowded! Tagaytay is again going to experience power shortages because the number of tourists who flocks there every summer is so many that they are unable to continuously provide the high electricity consumption brought out be vacationers.

It’s easy to get really excited to travel, but you should be careful, because every year we hear about stories that what was supposedly fun vacation became horror or sad stories. Usually, if we just pay attention to what’s happening we are actually given some signs of danger.

I’ve been lucky enough to be able to travel a lot, either for business or leisure, and because of that I always make sure that I watch out for ‘signs’ that a specific trip may be affected by bad energy. I started paying more attention to these signs or omens because the last time I ignored a sign my father had a major stroke and passed away in China.

A month or two before my parent’s annual trip to China, my father’s passport went missing. They looked for it everywhere but it proved to be futile and they never found it, they had to rush a new passport for him. When my father got his new passport, my mother then lost her passport. However, this time they found it soon after. By this time, I already told my mom that maybe they shouldn’t push through with the trip because it seems like a sign that they shouldn’t be taking this trip. They’ve never lost their passports and for two passports to go missing seems like to be a sure sign.

When they got their passport, my parents went to get their visas. However, they had encountered another problem. I again reiterated my thought that maybe they shouldn’t push through with the trip. My mother was already having second thoughts, but this is their annual trip to China, and more than leisure it’s a pilgrimage to the biggest Kuan Yin in the world.

Although familiar with Feng Shui, I hadn’t really taken up any formal training then, also I’m not yet familiar with the different Taoist and Buddhist oracles at that time. My mom then decided to consult a Taoist priest who supposedly can go into trance and channel the spirit of a Taoist deity. The response of this Taoist priest is that it’s safe for my parents to take the trip.

My father had a stroke and died in China in that trip. Because of this I always make sure that I shall never ignore a bad travel luck sign or omen.

If you’re going on a trip, do make sure that you don’t ignore these omens or signs that you might have bad travel luck. The following are just some of the signs but please note that this is not complete and omens may vary from one person to another, but these are some of the most common signs.

First: Missing Essential Travel Paraphernalia

If you’re missing essential travel paraphernalia such as your passport, a visa application form, or your travel bag, it may be a sign that you shouldn’t be making that trip. If possible, postpone that trip, if not, go to a temple or a church and ask for protection. On the day of your trip wear a Sun Wukong and/or a Kalachakra Pendant.

Second: Running Into a Limping Dog or a Limping Cat

Running into a limping dog or cat on your way to the airport is a sure sign that something bad might happen when you arrive in your point of destination. . It is better to cancel the trip or postpone it. If you’re unable to cancel it get a rock or sea salt and throw it behind your back. The act of throwing the salt behind you creates a celestial barrier between you and the bad luck. Carry a small pack sea or rock salt with you the entire duration of the trip.

Third: Dreaming of a Monster, Bad Spirits, Wild and/or Fierce Animal

If you dream of a monster, bad spirit or spirits, and/or scary fierce wild animals a few days or on the eve of the trip, you have to cancel your trip. It’s a sure sign that something bad will happen. In fact, it may even cause death.

When I was about eight years old, I lost a cousin because his brother and parents ignored this warning. Before I move forward with the story, I just want to clarify; that what happened is n one’s fault. They simply don’t know how to interpret a warning.

Anyway, my cousins and their parents were invited by a business partner to go to their rest house for a short vacation. On the eve of their trip, the eldest son, F, dreamed of a beautiful spirit woman chasing him. She wants F to go with him. Still within the dream, F refused to go with the spirit woman. This angered the spirit woman and said if he refused to go with her, she’ll just ask one of F’s siblings to join her.

The following day, R, one of F’s brothers shared with one of their sister that he dreamt of a beautiful but bad spirit woman riding with them in the car. This really didn’t bother R and the sister. However, when it was time to leave, R, fell from a short flight of stairs, and had a very minor injury. Nothing that can’t be treated with your ordinary home antiseptic, however, R felt uncomfortable and decided not to join them. However, their mom got angry and said it’s embarrassing if he won’t be joining them because their business partner is expecting the whole family to go.

Her mom won the argument and everybody went to the vacation as planned. That same afternoon they had a dipped in the swimming pool of the business partner’s pool. The deepest part of the swimming pool is 5 feet deep, and R, who was 19 at that time, was around 5’5. My aunt and uncle, their business partner, the children of their business partner, my cousins, some of their maids, the family drivers of both family who were tasked to look after the swimming ‘children’ are all either in the pool or around the pool area. R, who knows how to swim, drowned and nobody noticed him. No cry for help, no struggle. He drowned at the middle part of the pool, which is about 4.5 feet deep.

They don’t know what happened. They don’t understand why nobody noticed him, because all in all they were about 20 of them in the pool or in the area around the pool!

When his parents consulted a Taoist priest about the incident, they were told that a spirit caused the accident. This is when F remembered his dream and the sister remembered what R told her.

If you happen to have a similar dream, even if it’s not as vivid as that of my cousin’s, I suggest you cancel your trip. If this is not possible do go to a church or a temple. You can also wear a Sun Wukong or A Chung Kwei (also spelled as Chong Kwei or Zhung Kwei). More about Chung Kwei on my future post. A Kalachakra Pendant will also help.

Fourth: A Minor Car Accident, a Flat Tire, and a Funeral

If on your way to the airport or to your destination, and if you had a minor accident, a flat tire, or you run into a funeral procession, that simply means that you have to be careful when you arrived in your destination. The minor accident, the flat tire, or the funeral only means that whatever danger or bad luck has been averted already, so do drop a small amount of money on the road.  This is like paying back the good luck that you just got from the aborted bad luck. To understand these further do read my previous blog about funerals. Nevertheless, it still pays to be very careful.
