Money and Financial Luck Flows In; A Court Case Was Avoided; Moving In to Their Dream Home: A Personal Testimony of A Reader About the Vajrapani Ruel Miracles!

Published Agosto 1, 2017 by jptan2012

Time and again I always say that I know and believe that miracles still do exists and happen. However, every time I’ll get a personal miraculous testimony from a reader who has acquired an amulet or the Vajrapani Ruel, I still do get excited. You see, sometimes the stories are almost the same, but the details of how it happened varies and that is what excites me.

Today, allow me to share with you the story of Misha. Misha is 47 – year – old wife and mother of 5 kids. She and her husband Gerry married late and so all their kids are still in either elementary or high school.

Misha would described themselves as middle class and can’t be classified as rich, but she also said that little by little their life is getting better. In fact, 6 – years – ago she and her husband decided to make a down payment for a condominium in Quezon City. They were initially eyeing a different unit from a different developer, but they can’t afford it and they will have to wait a few more years before they can move in to the said condo. While this one is more affordable, albeit it is also smaller, but the good thing is that they are able to move in ASAP. And so they moved in to the more affordable one.

This is when their problems started. It was not an overnight problem but rather something that is gradual. Little by little they noticed that money seems more difficult to come in. Business is not as good. But they really didn’t think much of it because everybody seems to be complaining about bad business. Soon they were able to finish paying for their condo, and as expected they’ll be able to get the title for the said unit. But, 8 months after fully paying for the said condo, the developer is still unable to give them their title, and then they found out that some of their neighbors who fully paid for their units also were not given their titles. Some of these have fully paid their units for 2 years already. It was also at this time that they hit rock bottom, there are months that there income in their business becomes negative, the worst was when it hit negative for 3 consecutive months. If it were not for their savings they would have starved already.

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.

It was at this point that Misha contacted me. She was actually not a believer, and this is her first ‘venture’ to Feng Shui and is just desperate for a miracle to work. When she inquired about the Vajrapani Ruel and found out how much she would have to shell out for the exchange of energies she backed out. I think she was even a little irritated because she quipped that how can she shell out a relatively big amount of money when her problem is also money. She also said that she saw some people who have said bad things about Feng Shui and about me and so she said she wouldn’t be getting it. But after two weeks she called again, because it looks like they will have to go to court to get the title of their condo. And she said she’s just really desperate. And so I decided to meet with her and give her the Vajrapani Ruel, I still remember her parting words that day, she jokingly said that if the Vajrapani Ruel didn’t work she will look for me and kill me!

First week nothing happened, and everyday she would call me demanding for her miracle, second week still nothing happened, and she would still call me everyday demanding for her miracle. Then one day, I also got tired of her ‘whining’ and complaints, and told her that she can just return the Vajrapani Ruel. She said she will do just that but she didn’t call back to set the date when we can meet so that she can return the Vajrapani Ruel. Because I was also busy I sort of forgot her, although every now and then I would think of her calling but because of my busy schedule I would fail to call her.

Then after about 4 months from when she got the Vajrapani Ruel, I got a call from her, I was in a meeting when she called and failed to answer. I thought she was calling me to finally meet with me again to return the Vajrapani Ruel. Then she sends me an sms, and that’s how I first found out about her miracles!!! I was just so happy for her, because even though she became a little irritating when she calls me everyday, I sincerely want her to have her miracle because I know her persistent calling stems out of her concern for her family.

Misha Coronel

Apparently, what happened was after we talked, her husband told her to just ignore me and not return the Vajrapani Ruel. She then decided to listen to her husband. However, two days after that there was a big business deal that came in, their first and biggest in years! And so her husband thought that it might be due to the Vajrapani Ruel, however Misha decided that she would not draw conclusions yet.

But since then, money from different business deals continuously comes in. They soon found themselves turning down some clients because they can no longer accommodate them. However, there is still a problem of the condo. They have been consulting lawyers already and will likely go to court already. Going to court is really expensive, and somebody told them that there is still some available unit in the condo that they initially want. However, even if they’re earning already, buying that condo is not a prudent decision. It is at this point that Misha decided to try the Vajrapani Ruel again. She said she talked to it and said that she is still not sure if the financial blessings is due to the Vajrapani Ruel, she clarified also that she sort of apologized for being doubtful, but she ‘challenged’ the Vajrapani Ruel, she said she may fully believe if they are able to get a full refund of their current condo, and use that money to buy the other condo, the one that they really prefer.

Misha said 4 days after she ‘talked’ to her Vajrapani Ruel (I think in reality she was talking to Bodhisattva Vajrapani) they met with the developer, there they got what they wanted a full refund, this is a miracle because the developer was firm in not giving a refund, and they were the first one ever to get a refund, although there a lot of them who are complaining and claiming for a title. She got the check within 3 days after that meeting.

She then used the whole amount to pay for the condo that they prefer. And since that was much pricier, they still have two more years to pay for the rest. She contacted me a week after they’ve settled the payment for  their new home. She now also wants to get more Vajrapani Ruel and some Traditional Sutra Amulets that they can place it in their new home.

Now, isn’t that a miracle?

What To Do When You Always Have Miscommunication Problems With Your Boss?

Published Mayo 12, 2017 by jptan2012

I recently have a reader who emailed requesting for the Vajrapani Ruel(1). According to her she’s having problems with her boss. She clarified that her boss seems to be a nice person but they both always have miscommunication problems. He will interpret what she said in another way and vice versa. This has become such a burden for her that she really wants to leave her job but she the pay is good and her office is of a comfortable distance from her boss.

When I heard about this, I asked her why she thought of the Vajrapani Ruel(2). She said because she believes that the Vajrapani Ruel(3), which is considered as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon is the only thing that can save her from having the miscommunications problem.

Indeed the Vajrapani Ruel(4) is one of the most powerful amulets and it sure will help with her miscommunications problem. But miscommunication is not life and death situation and I think in her situation she doesn’t need the Vajrapani Ruel(5) or an amulet, but that a Feng Shui charm or Feng Shui cure will do for her. She just thinks her problem is so big and hopeless because this has been going on for a long time and this has caused her severe amount of stress.

The cure for her problem is quite simple. I told her to wear a Lapis Lazuli beads bracelet with an apple charm. That’s it! And she did.

Six weeks after now she claims that she can feel the significant improvement to their relationship. She said that it worked and the second week was the first time in her career life with her boss as her boss where she didn’t have an argument with him for a week, while usually they’ll have an argument at least three times a week!!!!

This is because Lapis Lazuli is a crystal that helps in communication and the apple charm helps promote harmony.

The Curse of the Blue Roof!

Published Marso 11, 2017 by jptan2012

Today, allow me to share with you a story that happened a few years ago. My cousin who regularly consults me bought a property where he built a house. He and his wife regularly consult me about their house, and we would discuss everything with their contractor (architect, engineer, and interior designer). Of course, I went to see the place before they started building and while building it. However, I was not able to go there anymore when they finished the house and also when they moved in and has a house warming and a blessing.

Soon they started to have financial problem, and being familiar with their chart, I know that the problem is not in their chart. I even to their office but everything seem to be in order, which is aside from some minor blunders that is not strong enough to cause their financial or money problems.

Even without verbalizing it, during our conversation was sort of blaming me for their bad luck and wanted to know whether I could have made a mistake. Seriously speaking, I was also beginning to doubt myself.

Soon they looked for another Feng Shui expert who also checked out their place. She pointed out several ‘problems’, which can only be cured if they get cures from her.

Out of desperation, I volunteered to go to their place and check it out again. They said they followed everything I told them down to the last detail. And so I went, and to be honest, when I can’t see any blunder for indeed they seemed to have followed everything I told them to, I was already feeling insecure that I could have made a mistake.

My cousin even showed me that they put a crystal on their roof, and that’s when I saw the mistake! I told them that they should have a green roof. But what they have is technically green, but aqua green! This is also the first time that he noticed that it was not pure green but rather light blue green. It resembles the color of pool. Right there and then he called up his contractor who admitted that that he decided to use a different shade of green only because he ran out of stock. He didn’t thought that it would matter and make a lot of difference.

Told my cousin to replace it and make their roof real green not aqua green! He did, and soon they got back their loss, and were able to invest in another property shorty.

Why did the aqua green cause so much trouble? Because it is totally not advisable, regardless of your Bazi Chart and elements, to have a blue or black roof and/or a blue and black wall! Too much black or blue which represents water that generally represents money will make it more of an aspirational thing and will make it harder to attain them.

Chant – A – Mantra (11):For Impossible Financial, Health and Relationship Problems Chant the Miraculous Response Mantra of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin!

Published Marso 1, 2017 by jptan2012

I have shared several powerful mantras on this blog, but today allow me to share with you another very powerful mantra. So powerful that we shouldn’t use if it is not really necessary. If I were to equate this mantra to amulets, I would say that this mantra is the Vajrapani Ruel, which is considered to be the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon,

If you find yourself in deep trouble be it financial, health and / or relationships, by chanting this mantra, you will find that by chanting this mantra your problems will gradually ease up. This mantra is usually chanted after reading a sutra of Kuan Yin, like the Universal Gateway of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara (Kuan Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon). But there it is usually chanted three times only. However, if you find yourself in deep trouble, chanting this mantra should help gradually, but there are certain rules that you need to do to make Bodhisattva Kuan Yin’s Miraculous Mantra.kuan-yin

First, one should go vegan (no meat, no eggs, no fish, no chicken, no milk, no cheese, no butter, no fish sauce, no marshmallows or gelatin) for three days before starting the mantra. On the fourth day you can start chanting the mantra, but make sure that you remain vegan all through out you’re doing the mantra, up to 7 days after you have received your wish or when your problems has eased up.

The mantra should also be chanted between 6AM and 9AM everyday for 1080 times (10 full malas) under deep meditative level.

I once recommended to a reader whose mother is in comatose, after ‘religiously’ doing this ritual for 2 months, her mom went out of coma, and doctors say that it’s a miracle.

Bodhisattva Kuan Yin’s Miraculous Response Mantras is the following:

ān mā nī bā mī hòng   mā gĕ ní yá nà

jí dū tè bā dá  jí tè xiē nà  wēi dá lǐ gĕ

sā ér wá ér tă   bǔ lǐ xī tǎ gĕ

nà bǔ là nà   nà bǔ lǐ   diū tē bān nà

nà mā lú jí    shuō là yĕ shoū hē

A Mother’s Financial Problem Miraculously Solved & Her Wish for Her Daughter Came True Because of the Vajrapani Ruel – A Personal Testimony of A Reader!

Published Agosto 4, 2016 by jptan2012

Sometimes a special thing come into our life, and although I have come to fully expect miracles from this special holy object, I must admit that I’m still fully amazed and sometimes overwhelmed with the wonderful miraculous stories shared with me by my readers and friends who have requested for the Vajrapani Ruel.

Today, I would like to share with you the story of a showbiz mother. She requested that her name be hidden because she herself used to be an actress and it will be easy for people in the Philippines to identify who she is. So for the sake of this blog article let’s just call her SM.

SM is a mother of several daughters and a son. Three of her daughters are in the entertainment industry right now. SM herself is only semi – retired and still comes out in a telenovela.

SM first contacted me when an actor who have been featured on this blog told her about me. When she contacted me she said that her husband who is way older than him has been sick, and since he was the only breadwinner at that time, money has been quite hard for them. They have to pay hospital bills and coupled with tuition fees of their eight children things really got difficult.

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.

It is because of the said financial problem that SM reluctantly agreed that three of her eldest daughters go into acting also. However, show business is not as easy as it looks. It will always take years of hard work and introducing yourself to people that matters before one is given a break in the industry. And so even with three daughters in the entertainment industry money is still quite difficult. SM herself went back to acting but contrary to what people think, pay is not that much. So she decided she will put up a small canteen business, but to do this she needs money to set it up.

When her fellow actor told her about me and the Vajrapani Ruel, she decided to call me and request for the Vajrapani Ruel. Her priority at that time is to get it for herself so she can raise enough money to start her canteen business, and at the same time so that her eldest problem will have a regular showbiz project.

That was several weeks ago, and earlier I got a message from her telling me the good news. Apparently, when her daughter got a regular project, she thought this might be because of the Vajrapani Ruel, however, since she is really not a believer she thought it might be a coincidence. Nevertheless, when a week after her daughter got the regular project, she also got her own good news. Her rich unmarried aunt gave her a ‘small’ condominium unit in one of her investments in Makati. SM plans to sell the said unit so that it will become cash, which she can partly use for her canteen business and also for her husband’s medical bills.

Please see below the message of SM. It’s in Filipino, which I tried to translate verbatim.IMG_0290

JP!!! Good news! You know why I got the Vajrapani Ruel, right? That is because I have big money problem and with my daughter’s career who have been in the showbiz industry for quite some time. Good News!!!! She (SM”s daughter) was cast in a regular show and my aunt who is not married who is really rich in the States, came back home. She is quite old so she decided to put her affairs into order and distributed some of her properties. I was lucky enough to be given a small condominium unit. I plan to sell it so that I’ll have cash. At first my daughter (was casted in a regular project) 2 weeks after getting the Vajrapani Ruel. I had doubts but after last week when my aunt gave me the property title of the said condominium and it was written under my name already, whatever doubts I have that these things were because of the Vajrapani Ruel was erased! Thanks a lot, JP. Please call me so I can tell you the whole story.

The Reader Who Proved That Staying Positive Is Indeed The First Line of Defense!

Published Oktubre 8, 2015 by jptan2012

stay positiveI had a very interesting conversation earlier (please note the posting of this article is not the same day as it was written) with a reader who wanted to get the Vajrapani Ruel.

MA is a 41 – year – old wife and mother of two children. According to her, about a year ago, her family experienced a tremendous problem so big that it seems like there’s no way out of it. I don’t really remember it but according to her she emailed me to inquire about the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant but that she was deep in a middle of a financial crisis she was unable to afford it. Everything seems to be working against her and her family. In fact, when a friend found out about their problems, all this friend had to say was there is no solution to MA’s and her family’s problem!

But MA refuse to give up and instead did her best to stay positive. She admitted that there is times that it is easier to give up than stay positive but she said she fought really hard to be positive. She also would chant some mantras found on this blog in the morning and evening just before she sleeps. And it paid off. According to her they still have some problems and debts that they need to settle but somehow they’re over the worst. Furthermore, they’re in the process of building their house, albeit slowly, but still on they’re on their way of having their new house. And now to expedite the process recovery, she has decided to get a Vajrapani Ruel because she believes it will help makes things move faster. And she has the money for it now.  But before then all she has was her family and being positive!

Are You Suffering From An Afflicted Bazi That’s Causing Severe Money, Career, Relationship, or Personal Problems? An Ing Deng Pay Is A Powerful Taoist Cure for These Problems

Published Marso 4, 2015 by jptan2012

Have you ever felt like something is already within your reach then all of a sudden it seems to slips through out of your hand?

Have you ever felt like all your relationships are in chaos?

Have you ever felt like you know you’re a good person, you’re not ugly, you’re nice but somehow love seems really just elusive?

Have you ever felt like you’re a good person, you work really hard, but money, wealth, or financial luck seems just to be so elusive? It is like they have all connive against giving you a good life?

On the other hand, you can be very hard headed, you get angry easily, you’re irrational, you know that the things you do are not your right but somehow you are unable to control yourself. It seems that there is some evil force controlling you!

Are you a gambler, do you have an addiction to drugs or alcohol or sex or food or shopping? You just can’t seem to control yourself?

Do you always wreck all your relationships by doing bad things? You fight with your parents? Cheat on your partner or worst emotionally, verbally, or physically abused them? Do you physically hurt your children? You know that these things are wrong but then there seems to be an evil force that is controlling you!Problem-Solving

If you can relate to one or more of the above problems, chances are you might be experiencing one or two kinds of afflictions. First, which is the most common one, you might be suffering from an affliction from your Bazi, or second, you might be suffering from a Feng Shui home or office affliction. The second one is easier to resolve. All you have to do is find out the problem from your home or office and fix the problem. However, if the cause of the problem is an affliction of the problem is your bazi, and then the solution might not be as easy, finding it out will be a little bit more difficult also.

Regular readers of this blog know that I don’t normally respond to questions like lucky color, lucky day, etc. Because these factors are not determine by your Chinese animal zodiac alone, but rather this is determine by your Bazi or Paht Chee, which is in turn determined by your birth year, birth month, birth day, birth time.

You may also have remembered me writing about the fact that a person’s Feng Shui is actually determined by three factors. These three are: Heaven’s Luck (can be determined thru your Bazi or Paht Chee), Man’s Luck (the things we do) and Earth’s Luck (which is Feng Shui by considering the location of our house, office, the placement of objects and the directions, etc.). Among all these, the least control that we have is Heaven’s Luck, some people believe that we cannot change this, but base on my experience; I believe this can be changed, it will be difficult but it can be change.

The truth is most people will have an imbalanced Paht Chee or Bazi, but what we have to remember is that imbalanced does not mean it’s afflicted.

When does it count as afflicted? If there are a lot of conflicting elements or signs on your Paht Chee. However, this is something that is quite difficult to be determined by ordinary people who are not familiar with the Paht Chee, because this requires a skill to count the Paht Chee. The best thing really is to consult a qualified Feng Shui consultant to help determine your Paht Chee or Bazi.

An imbalanced Bazi can be cured with Feng Shui, for example, wearing of a certain color, or gemstones, etc. But a Bazi that is afflicted will require much more than Feng Shui to be cured.

But before we talk about the cure, I guess the bigger question now is how to determine whether you have an afflicted Bazi? If you constantly experience one or more of the things above at a frequency or magnitude that can’t be ignored anymore. If that is the case chances are your Bazi is afflicted with a lot of conflicting elements and signs.

An afflicted Bazi is much more common than most people think. Usually people who suffer from some form of clinical mental problem have an afflicted Bazi. A person who has severe temper or anger management problems are also usually has an afflicted Bazi. People who are predisposed to whatever kind of addiction usually have this kind of problems also.

But other than that, if you notice people work really hard but can never attain financial or wealth luck, or even success luck, are also suffering from an afflicted Bazi. Have you heard of people being robbed several times, or being duped more than thrice? They also usually suffer from an afflicted Bazi. The challenge here is determining whether your Bazi is afflicted or simply suffering from an imbalanced chart or bad home or office Feng Shui. Unfortunately, this is something that can be accurately determined if you consult a Feng Shui expert or if you can absolutely be certain that you have practice good Feng Shui.

But what to do if you have an afflicted Bazi?

As of now, there are only two known cures for this. One is a 49 days long Medicine Buddha puja. Followed by 10,000 Buddha repentance ceremonies wherein a person should prostate 10,000 times in front of an image of a Buddha. This has to be done continuously and if one is missed then it should done all over again. Normally, this is done every week, some prefers doing it everyday. The 10,000 Buddha Repentance ceremony is done because it is believe that it is due to your past life bad karma that gives you an afflicted Bazi. After the Medicine Buddha puja and the 10,000 Buddha Repentance ceremony, the monk will do some divination to determine whether the affliction has been cured or tempered. If not, then the whole process is repeated. This kind of cure is base on the Buddhist practice.

For Taoism, there is a different approach. A Taoist Priest or Feng Shui Grand Master will usually make a certain ritual for you, followed by you acquiring Ing Deng Pay, which is also called as Ing Tiak Pay (Pay is pronounced as pie). The Ing Deng Pay is actually a small tablet usually made of marble, or hard stone, sometimes wood with special incantations and name of the person. Sometimes it also has crystals depending on the affliction. The Ing Deng Pay can only be made by an ordained Taoist Priest or a Feng Shui Grand Master, because it involves some special incantation and while it’s important that you get the Ing Deng Pay, equally important is the ritual that goes through with the process of making the Ing Deng Pay.

The Ing Deng Pay is almost a dying ritual, because it is quite difficult to do it. In fact, I don’t know of any Taoist Priest here in the Philippines who are able to do it. However, my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong just recently started doing this again with the help of a Taoist priest.

If you wish to know more about the Ing Deng Pay you can read the following blog posts:
