This is going to be a short post but a difficult one to write only because this may seem a little pessimistic. However, the forecast seems to be happening. As of writing this post one US dollar is now at 50.96 Philippine pesos. I believe this is going to still get higher maybe up to Php 52.00 to Php 53.00.
Not to mention the fact that because of the new tax system of the country, prices are subject to get higher. While I totally support higher taxes for soft drinks, cigarettes, etc., higher taxes on fuels is definitely not good. Higher taxes on fuels will definitely increase prices of all basic commodities. All these will definitely make the financial situation of the country a little bleaker.
We all have to make sure that we are all prepared to face the year. Spend money only when it is absolutely necessary. On top of that, remember that this year we all have to be patient and really work hard.
Every year I write a forecast that is base on the year’s Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart coupled with the 24 Mountain Stars Formula and the Flying Star Formula. This year was no exception, and regular readers of this blog or those who have read my forecast knows that last December 2016 when I posted the first of the three articles of the annual forecast, I mentioned that the peso would continue to weaken against the dollar. I specifically mentioned that there is a very strong possibility that we will hit Php 50.00 against the US$. And last weekend, that’s what just happened. Today, Feb. 20, 2017 it hit Php 50.24, which is the highest in 10 years!
I think it will hit up to Php 52.00 to Php 54.00 (although it might fluctuate a little) before it normalizes or become more stable. Some of you might say that this is temporary, or we don’t feel the effect anyway. Well, we don’t really feel it yet, maybe because we are middle class or upper class, but some people especially in the lower income bracket are already feeling it, and we should all the feel effects in the next few weeks. I haven’t done the chart for next year, but this is not temporary, at least not for this year.
Why am I writing this?
Modesty aside as some readers has pointed out my batting average for my forecasts are quite high. The very forecast that I wrote about that actually come to fruition is about the Yolanda Calamity in Leyte. To this day, I’m quite positive that I’m the only Feng Shui writer who wrote about it pre – calamity and specifically mentioned that it will happened in Visayas and that a shortage of food might happened because of the said calamity. It was followed with the forecast of unnatural hot climate, which also happened. Then I also talked about the earthquake in Nepal, which also happened. For last year, I wrote about the possible financial instability that may happen mid – year to end of the year, and unfortunately this also happened, because the Philippine peso started to get weaker against the dollar since towards the middle of the year.
I’m enumerating these things not to pat my own shoulder and say well done with the forecast, but rather I need to establish that there is a certain level of accuracy that I hit. And I think I’m also the only Feng Shui writer who has said that we might hit Php 50.00 against the US$ in the first quarter. And so far, I hit that also. What I’m driving at is it is better to be ready for a possible calamity, which is will likely be man – made towards the end of the 3rd quarter or at the start of 4th quarter. For those who have a weak financial luck or wealth luck or money luck this year would be very well to get ready and save up for the ‘winter’ to keep you ‘warm’.
You can chant the following mantras everyday for this year (108X each):
OM MANI PADME HUM
OM VAJRAPANI HUM
OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM
OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE SOHA
OM PADMO KRODA ARYA DZAMBHALA HRIH DAYA HUM PHAT
Furthermore, it is very good if you carry with you a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel(1), and for everybody it would be nice to wear citrine and an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) pendant made of gold.

Late last year when I wrote about my analysis of the Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart of 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey, one of the things I wrote is the big possibility of a financial crisis. In that particular article, what will precipitate the said crisis will happen either the first part or the middle part of the year, but that the crisis will start to happen either middle of the year or last part of the year. Last June, US$ 1.00 is approximately around Php 44.00, and now it is (as of writing) Php 49.95, the highest is more than 8 years, and the first time to steadily jump up after more than 10 years. In another post, which I have decided will not be shared again; I also insinuated the cost of this financial crisis, at least, for our country.
If you look at the trend, US $ to Php should have started going down already because of the OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker)remittances, but on the third week of November it still continues to rise. Hopefully, it will still go down on December given that the OFW remittances are coming in, but even if goes down, it seems that it will jump up again coming January. I’m sharing this because we all need to get ready for this. I haven’t checked the bazi chart for the year 2017, and will do so soon and share with you my analysis as soon as possible.
Having said that, I will like to clarify that this is not a political post, and so I refrain from making assumptions as to what is causing the continues decline of the Philippine peso, but this I will say while the middle class to upper class are not yet feeling the effect of this financial crisis, we should not be blind to the ones on the lower income bracket who has taken a hit already.
In the past 3 months, I came across two former VIP bodyguards who is now an Uber driver or applying to be a driver. Their concern is that a lot of foreign investors have left the country or have downsized, and of course, not so many foreign VIPs are in need of bodyguard. Another reader also emailed me. Her son apparently works as a call center agent, but several smaller call center agencies have close shop, they are smaller but each one still have about 300 call center agents, not to mention janitors, guards, and non – call canter agent employees.
I’m sharing this because it is important that each one of us prepare for this financial crisis, if indeed it will become a full-blown crisis and I’m not saying it will. Although, I forecasted it, like the Yolanda forecast, the Nepal earthquake forecast, this is something that I’m not proud of nor I’m happy that my forecast has been vindicated.
I’m sure each one of us can do something. We can start of by supporting the good that our government is doing but we should also rally against the things that we perceived are wrong. When I say rally, I mean we should let our voices be heard in a non – violent and non – confrontational manner. Let’s email the government, let’s share our thoughts, and let us be the change, the improvement that we so desire to see.
And of course, do not forget the power of prayers, of going to church or temple, of lighting candles and incense and dedicating its merits for the financial improvement of the country, let us chant -a – mantra or recite – a sutra.
On a personal level, we should start protecting ourselves. Save up, invest properly, carry a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel or now the traditional sutra amulet like THE DIAMOND SUTRA and / or THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA, these amulets doesn’t become available now for no reason, they always become available at the right time.

Today, allow me to share with you a miraculous personal testimony of a reader who works in Hong Kong. Her story is so wonderful because while the miracle may not be as fabulous as the other stories that I have posted and that were shared by other readers, DL, as she requested to be called, experienced a series of miracles! For those who can read Filipino, you can personally read her story, the way she wrote it. However, those who can’t understand Filipino, I have taken the liberty to translate it in English. I tried my best to translate it verbatim.
But before I share her story, I just want to share that you may have noticed that lately I try my best to put the actual sms or email sent by the reader who shares his or her miraculous story. This is something that I want to do regularly if possible, but there are still others who wish to just call me and talk to me over the phone about their experiences. But whether they simply call and talk to me over the phone or send a message and allow me to post their message or their testimony, personal testimonies like these are the ones that keep me going.
Some of you might be aware that there are some people who are trying to discredit Feng Shui, Taoism, Buddhism, and the powers of the amulets. Some people will even go as far as bad mouthing the Vajrapani Ruel calling it to be the work of evil or saying it’s fake. I will not even go to discussing about the things that are said against me (depends on how you look at it some may be true, mostly are not). But whatever negativities are going on around there, when I receive some personal testimonies from readers about the miracle they have experienced because of the Vajrapani Ruel, or Surangama Mantra Amulet or Illness Suppression Amulet or the Ing Deng Pay or about doing the recommendations or chanting the mantras that I have written about, it gives me going and it encourages me to write. Of course, now I know that I should be more responsible and I should fully acknowledge that I have responsibilities or I have a responsibility on my readers. Again, when I receive these testimonies I know that why there are still some changes that I should implement, I know that writing this blog is all worth it, because no amount of money can pay for experience one can have when we read these testimonies.
Anyway, DL, I think is a new Filipino overseas worker in Hong Kong. She works as an in – house nanny. I still remember when she first requested the Vajrapani Ruel, and as her written testimony states, there was a delay in the delivery of her Vajrapani Ruel. It took 6 months, I think. I’m not saying this as an excuse but sometimes delays are cause by unseen forces, they want to prevent us from getting the amulet. Or sometimes fate just have the perfect timing for one to have the Vajrapani Ruel, and I think this is the case for DL.
Please see translation below and proof of the incident she mentioned. I believe also that the picture she sent was recently taken so it explains why it’s clean and only has a burnt off part.
I just want to tell you about the ‘miracle’ that I experienced with the Vajrapani Ruel in the short time that it’s with me. I have to give it to my husband because I think he needs it more.
I ordered the Vajrapani Ruel June and it arrived Dec. 5, 2015 here in Hong Kong. But before even I receive it, I dreamt that there is an old man who rang the doorbell and handed me a brown envelop that contains a bundle of money and a small envelop that contains that Vajrapani Ruel. I (in the dream) even handed the mailman some money.
(A) few months later I received the Vajrapani Ruel and the guy in my dream was the same guy who handed me the Vajrapani Ruel. One week after having the Vajrapani Ruel something happened. I was sleeping beside my ward who was only 7 months old at that time, my put the Vajrapani Ruel beside my pillow and proceeded to a deep slumber with baby (DL’s ward), I didn’t realized that the socket beside our bed was burning. Just found out about it the following day when I cleaned (the room). It got me wondering as to why it didn’t burn the bed since our bed is right beside to the electrical socket. That’s when I remembered about the Vajrapani Ruel. If it were not for the Vajrapani Ruel ‘baby’ and I would have been burned to death (toasted was the word DL use).
After that incident I made a wish on the Vajrapani Ruel to give money so I can buy a plane ticket, and that my employers would allow me to go home to the Philippines. I know it was unlikely to happen because one my contract has not yet ended and also because at that time I have two wards to take care of. (Nevertheless) the following morning I talked to my employer to allow me to go home in March because I want to attend my husband’s graduation. He immediately said yes and he even gave me a round – trip ticket! I was really happy at that time. I don’t know how to explain it but the blessings I received seems to be coming one after the other.
Before I went home (to the Philippines), my employer’s parents found out that I’m going home and his mother gave me HK$ 2,000.00 for my children, and his father gave me HK$ 4,000.00 and further more my employer lend me some money because he knows that I don’t have much since my husband went back to college.
The last thing I experienced is something that is impossible to happen. It is impossible for my brother to pay me the Php 15,000.00 that she borrowed three years ago. I again made a wish with the Vajrapani Ruel for her to pay me back just before I left for Hong Kong again, so that I can leave that money to my family here. Two days before my flight my sister – in – law sent me message informing me that she will pay me back the money on the day of my flight back to Hong Kong. Told her to just give it to my husband. When my husband drops me off at the airport, my brother called him up to inform him that the money is ready for pick – up. And he did get the money. Those are the miracles that I experienced in the (more or less) three months that the Vajrapani Ruel is with me. It’s a good thing I left this with my husband because my youngest child refuse to go to school, hope that the Vajrapani Ruel can make him go back to school.
Jp, I’m giving you the right to post these stories, please just use the initial DL. By the way, I’m still chanting the Vajrapani (mantra) so that I can have money again soon to get my own Vajrapani Ruel. So that my husband and I can have one each. I also want to ask when you dream that there are several monk who visited you in your house and offered prayer, what does it mean?
Thank you. Hopefully I can still share more stories with you. (THIS PART WAS FOLLOWED BY A PERSONAL QUESTION) Thank you again.
You can also read the following posts about the Vajrapani Ruel:
The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.
