2018 Year of the Earth Dog – A Year With Bleak Financial Forecast and Poor Moneymaking Capacity: Understanding What Has Been Written and Also What Has to Be Done!

Published Nobyembre 8, 2017 by jptan2012

2018 dogI have initially written and scheduled a different article to be posted today. However, the overwhelming response to the two previous articles about the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog and how the metal element, which represents wealth luck / financial luck / money luck for the year, is totally absent from the year’s Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart).

Note: It might be better for you to read the first two articles preceding this post – (1) AN IMPORTANT PEEK TO THE 2018 YEAR OF THE EARTH DOG: A BLEAK FINANCIAL FORECAST AND EARLY PREPARATION IS KEY! and (2) A SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO EMPOWERED BY A CRYSTAL TO INVITE WEALTH LUCK.

The responses to the said two articles are overwhelming that I have decided to write another article about it to clarify some of the things. I have taken some of the most common or frequent questions sent to me via email or sms or even phone calls and decided to answer it here.

  1. Who is affected?

Technically speaking, almost all of us are affected. The severity of it will depend on several factors:

  • Your Chinese Animal Zodiac (Chinese Zodiac Sign) and I should write about this in the main forecast.
  • Stability of your business. Naturally the more stable your business is the less you will feel the effect.
  • Stability of your tenure in the company, if you are an employee. Again, if you have proven yourself to be a valuable employee the less chances of you being affected.
  • Stability of your Feng Shui either at home or office. It is important that you have a strong Feng Shui foundation in the sense that there is no or not much Feng Shui blunder. You might be stable but because you have a Feng Shui blunder which you have ignored so far because you are making money anyway, you might be affected by this. You see a slightly stronger negative energy combining with the negative effect of your Feng Shui blunder might create havoc for you.
  • Degree of compassion or kindness in your heart. I don’t mean to sound so dramatic, and this is definitely not a cliché, but the amount of goodness of your heart will definitely have an effect on how malevolent energies affect you. If you are sincerely a good person, you’ll find yourself being able to fight this negative effect of the absence of the metal element, ergo the absence of wealth and money, in the chart of the year. I don’t just say this out of the blue. One my reader turned friend BM, whom some of you might be familiar with because I often wrote about her is a living testament to this. Last year, being born in the year of Ox, she has one of the worst luck. But because she is a truly and genuinely good person who is very compassionate and kind and selfless, she breeze through the year with only minor hitch that are easily taken care of and it didn’t cause her any serious trouble.

 

  1. Is it all negative for 2018?

No. Definitely not! In my main forecast, you will see the good things. I shall write about it soon. But the lack of wealth luck as signified by the absence of metal element on the year’s bazi chart is a serious and important matter, thus the need to write about it sooner so that we can all prepare.

 

  1. Is this only base on my computation, analysis and interpretation of the chart? And how accurate are the forecast?

I always do my own computation, analysis, and interpretation of the annual bazi chart. From that process I create my forecast. However, this is something that I alone concluded and shares. My Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong has the same interpretation, my Guru Lama has warned about this a long time ago thus he decided to come up with the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET and the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. But importantly, outside my circle the more prominent and reliable Feng Shui experts are also saying the same thing. Not to name drop, but even the world’s most famous Feng Shui expert, Lillian Too, is saying the same thing. I just don’t know how serious does she consider this as a concern.

Vaisravana Dzambhala Wealth Amulet

The Vaisavana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet has the consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings and the mantras of the Five Dzambhalas. Furthermore, there are some special ingredients in powder form that are included to add to the potency of the amulet. Before it is sealed it is furthered consecrated on the image of The Four Heavenly Kings.It is placed in a metal case, not just for its durability and protection but according to the Tantric Buddhist Scripture book where Guru Lama got the instructions for this amulet, it has to be placed in cylindrical metal case to symbolize continuity and stability.

Regarding to how accurate are the forecasts. That would be hard to say, I would say that no forecasts are 100% accurate. However, given that several, in fact most, reputable Feng Shui experts are saying that the absence of the metal element in the bazi chart is of concern should show some degree of accuracy. Furthermore, and modesty aside, you can also review all my annual forecast, since I forecasted the havoc of Typhoon Haiyan (Typhoon Yolanda) in the Visayas (the only Feng Shui writer or believer at that who has pinpointed that a calamity will happen in Visayas almost a year before the actual event and not post – event), I have always been credited of a more or less accurate annual forecast, that includes even the earthquake in Nepal. I say this with modesty, but I thought it’s worth raising this not to scare people but to make people aware. It is useless knowing something may happen if we cannot do anything about it.

 

  1. What can we do to be protected?

There are several ways to ensure that you are protected and I have written about this extensively on the first article about this year’s forecast. You can click on the link to read it: AN IMPORTANT PEEK TO THE 2018 YEAR OF THE EARTH DOG: BLEAK FINANCIAL FORECAST AND EARLY PREPARATION IS KEY!

In that article I talked about the fact that you should start now by ensuring that should there be a financial crisis you will not be affected. For business owners, do this by ensuring that clients cannot rescind your contract in a whim. That is one way of ensuring that you are protected. One has to save up also. For employees, do not spend all your 13th month pay and Christmas bonus this December. Spend wisely.

As mentioned, being sincerely good will reaps you good or better karma and it should help.

I have also discussed the use of amulets, and of course the VAJRAPANI RUEL is still going to be very useful, but for situations like this you might want to use or have the amulet that was recently rediscovered by Guru Lama, which has recently made and released because he has long since known of the bleak financial prospects of the last 3 lunar months of 2017 and of the lunar year 2018. I’m talking about the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET(2). Click on the link to read about it.

Also, Guru Lama has used some blessed or empowered gold from the temple to fashion a specially designed PIYAO (also called or spelled as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu, Pi Xie, Pixie) to address this concern. This Special Gold Piyao has special designs to address this concern, but you will see that it is more than just for 2018, a Piyao whether with financial crisis or not is a good wealth amulet, and it is also a good protection charm. Read my post about it – A SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO EMPOWERED BY A CRYSTAL TO INVITE WEALTH LUCK! The money for the exchange of energies for this will go feed the novice monks, for clothes, and also an image of Buddha or Bodhisattva will be made plated in gold under your name.

However, that’s not the only thing that you can do. These amulets can be really pricey as most real and powerful amulets are, because of the process in making it, and the rituals or offerings that has to be made under your name. To understand this better, read this post – BASIC BUDDHISM 5: THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.

But of course, it is not all about amulets. In fact, if you can go under deep meditation and chant some mantras, it might even be more powerful that wearing amulets. Amulets are just but tools for us to tap into the power of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas. In my post – THE CHALLENGING LAST QUARTER OF THE YEAR: WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO PROTECT ONESELF– I wrote about the different protective mantras one can chant. Remember that these mantras are extremely powerful when chanted under deep meditation. For financial luck you can chant the following combination of mantras 108x each mantra under deep meditative state. A state wherein you are no almost not aware of your surroundings. The mantras are the following:

  • Mantra of the Compassionate Bodhisattva Kuan Yin: OM MANI PADME HUM
  • Mantra of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings: OM VAISRAVANA YE SOHA
  • Mantra of Yellow Dzambhala: OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE SOHA
  • Mantra of White Dzambhala: OM PADMO KRODA ARYA DZAMBHALA HRIH DAYA HUM PHAT
  • Mantra of Red Dzambhala: OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE DANAM MEDIHI HRIH DAKINI DZAMBHALA SAMBHARA SOHA
  • Mantra of Green Dzambhala: OM KARMA DZAMBHALA AH SOHA
  • Mantra of Blue/Black Dzambhala: OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE BASHU DARINI SOHA
  • Mantra of Wealth Granting Tara: OM TARE TUTTARE TURE DANAM ME DADA SOHA

 

  1. What if I can’t afford the amulets and don’t want to chant mantras?

I still believe rather strongly that a sincere PRAYER WORKS!!! I don’t think I need to expound about this. But we should always remember that a prayer works!!!!

Lastly, I want to share what a wise woman from Davao whom I fondly call BM here on this post said to me just today. She said that in times like this WE SHOULD TRUST THAT OUR FAITH IS STRONGER THAN OUR FEARS!

THE POWER OF PRAYER: A Christian Prayer Coupled with A Buddhist Prayer Made A Critical Day Run Really Smooth!

Published Abril 21, 2017 by jptan2012

Recently I have to travel to Davao as a favor to BM. We have to do some ceremonies or ritual at her husband’s office. I really don’t want to go because it will take a lot of time and it will eat up a day of my official business time. Anyway, Guru Lama told me to go and so I went.

The problem is this; I can only fly via Cebu Pacific in the morning and leave also on the same day. And so BM booked me on flight that leaves at around 430am. But I have to be in Davao at around 7am or 730am because that’s the time we should start the first part of the ritual, which will be followed by another ritual around 930am and then at 1130am.

If you are from the Philippines, you know that most domestic flights gets really delayed, not by an hour or two but sometimes even for 8 hours!!!! And so I was beginning to think that we might have made the wrong decision of booking my flight in the morning of when we should do the ritual. I expressed this concern to BM and she said to just pray and trust that everything will be smooth.

The day before my flight I thought of requesting my flight be rebooked for that night to I can come a day ahead and stay there for the night, but I realized that this is financially impractical because it will end up causing more than the original price, it will look like that two tickets were bought. Again, BM said let’s just pray and be positive. Of course, it was awkward that a reader should remind me of this because always tell my readers that being positive is always the first line of defense in Feng Shui.

On the day of my flight on the car going to the airport, I decided to hold my Vajrapani Ruel and I kept on chanting OM VAJRAPANI HUM. Whenever, I’ll chant 108 times, I’ll say a short prayer to Bodhisattva Vajrapani to help make it to Davao on time. When I get to the airport, I saw that the first Cebu Pac flight to Davao was delayed. And so I told the ground steward to just put me in the first flight, which was delayed because I really need to be in Davao by 7am. However, I was told that the first flight is fully booked and I cannot be accommodated. And so I continued to chant OM VAJRAPANI HUM while holding my Vajrapani Ruel. At the same time, relying on BM’s prayers that I will make it on time.

To my surprise, my flight was on time, and in fact we left Manila ahead of the first flight to Davao. And so I made it on time to Davao.

And we were able to push through with the ritual without a hitch.

Nevertheless, I still need to come back to Manila. Although I no longer have appointments that evening, I still need to want to fly back to Manila on time because I badly need rest and I still have a meeting the following day. But of course, I was not very hopeful that I’d get lucky. But guess what? My flight was on time on the dot. So I thought that Cebu Pacific flights are now on time. So I told that flight attendant that it’s good that flights now are on time because my morning flight and evening flight are both on time. The flight attendant smiled and replied in Filipino, “You just got lucky because delays are still really bad!”

No I did not get lucky, two flights in a day cannot be about luck, it was the power of BM’s prayers and the power of my prayers to Vajrapani Bodhisattva while holding the Vajrapani Ruel that made my flight fly on time and for everything to go smoothly that day.

Syria’s Gas Attack: A Disgrace to Humanity!

Published Abril 5, 2017 by jptan2012

Today the world is shocked as images of Syria’s gas attack was broadcast. There is simply no words that will aptly described the horror that this attack created. It is a disgrace to all humanity that such an act happened. We all have to do something about it, even if that something is simply to share the horror of it or just to say a short prayer for those who have suffered, are suffering, will be suffering to this senseless war!

For Buddhists please chant the following mantra for those who are suffering in Syria:

NAMO AMITUOFO!

TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

OM MANI PADME HUM

OM VAJRAPANI HUM

OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

Myth Buster 43: Incense Smoke Brings Our Prayers to Heaven

Published Nobyembre 17, 2016 by jptan2012

When I was in still elementary and going to a Christian school, my Christian teacher told us that when Buddhist (collectively referring to Taoist and Buddhist) pray they light an incense because the incense smoke brings the prayer the wishes to heaven. Of course, given that she is our teacher, a lot of us believe this. and later on I found out that this is a very common beliefs amongst non – Taoist or non – Buddhist, but more than that this is also a common belief amongst Taoist and Buddhist as well.

There is no truth to that belief. When we chant – a – mantra, or recite – a – sutra, or even pray, we don’t need to light incense for the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas to hear our prayer. In fact, the sutra says even before we say our heart’s wishes or desires, the Buddhas and the Bodhisattvas already know them. We only light incense as an offering to the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Gods.

In Feng Shui A Little Common Sense Will Help Appease Our Worries!

Published Agosto 2, 2016 by jptan2012

Several months ago somebody called me who is quite frantic, because her prayer bead or mantra bead or mala broke while she was using it. She was really scared that this is an omen of extreme bad luck. In the same manner, I was reminded of another call that happened a few years back, a friend called me because his citrine with nine – eyed DZI bracelet broke just when he was about to take it off. He became worried also that this is also an omen of financial bad luck.

But you see the lady who called me about the broken mala has been using her mala for more than 10 years already. And the guy has had his citrine beads with nine – eyed DZI bracelet for almost 2 years, and he takes it off and wears it everyday. So you see, common sense dictates that there is no omen. It is really just bound to happen because of wear and tear.

Nevertheless, I cannot blame them from panicking, because a lot of Feng Shui writers will attribute such occurrence as an omen. And in some way, they may be correct, but this is where common sense should come in.

If you have been using your mala for more than 10 years it is bound to break, maybe earlier if the quality of the string used is not so good. Beaded bracelet needs to be replaced every year because the garterized thread or nylon thread used in those bead bracelets if stretched everyday will only last about a year, sometimes even shorter if you live in a hot weather and if the quality is bad. So you see, they are bound to break, and not every breakage is a sign of bad omen.

When should you worry, if the incident of the breakage is somewhat can’t be explained. Like a 2 – week old mala breaking off, or a bracelet breaking off without an apparent reason, that’s when it should be considered as a bad omen. What should you do if this happened? Consult a Feng Shui or if one is not available, take a sea salt or rock salt bath to help take away the negative energy.

Call On Your Heavenly Guardians!

Published Mayo 26, 2016 by jptan2012

Today, allow me to give you a short post on how to call on your heavenly guardians when you need help.

If you are feeling everything is going wrong, or when you’re in a compromising situation, you can call on your heavenly guardians.

How?

Just calm yourself a little, close your eyes, then put you palms together and visualize that a white light shines down upon you. And then imagine a light blue light shines from the top of your head going towards the sky, then just say a little prayer.

“Heavenly Beings (3x)! By the mercy and power of the most compassionate Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (also spelled as Kwan Yin, Guan Yin, Gwan Yin) please help me now!”

Then say OM MANI PADME HUM 7X!

In reality, you call on Kuan Yin here and HE (SHE) together with some heavenly beings will ensure to ease up your situation.

Myth Buster 40: The Ashes of a Black Cat Will Enable You to See & Fight Demons!

Published Mayo 18, 2016 by jptan2012

black catIt’s been quite some time since I wrote about an article under the MYTH BUSTER category. But today, allow me share a pervasive myth amongst the local of Siquijor (a province in the Philippines known for witchcraft and stories of Manananggal or local vampires). In a trip to Siquijor a few months back, some people told me that I will never see a pure black cat in Siquijor because the albularyos (local shamans) hunts the black cat, kill them, then burn it and use the ash in looking for demons and fighting them. I was quite surprised and told my guide to hook me up with an albularyo who practices this because I would surely love to understand more about this practice.

Some of my friends who are with me warned me not to talk to the albularyos because I might get hexed or bewitched. I was pretty confident that it wouldn’t happen because I have my Kalachakra Pendant and more importantly I have my Vajrapani Ruel and Surangama Mantra Amulet.

I was lucky enough to meet two elderly albularyos who absolutely forbid me to take their photo because they believe that their soul might be captured by the camera or photo (I will discuss this in succeeding posts). Anyway, they told me that this is a known way to best see and fight a demon, but it is a practice that is quite difficult to do. At the end, they said that they have tried it, however, they don’t know the actual ritual thus are unable to do it.

I got really curious about this practice and decided to do more research about it. I found out that ancient Hebrews also believes in this practice. Now the question is there truth to this?

The variables present as was shared with me are they only need of the ashes of black cat and some prayer. If I’m going to base it on this alone, I think this is more of a myth. Why? Because an ash has no chi. It is literally without energy thus it can be used into a spiritual object or amulet. In fact, Buddhist prefers to be cremated because in that case they won’t have to worry as to where to put the ash. Once a person has been cremated, one will not need to worry about the Feng Shui of the burial site because the ashes have no chi.
