My Feng Shui Blunder

Published Mayo 1, 2013 by jptan2012

I’m writing this blog to remind everybody that sometimes Feng Shui cures are not enough, we have to be very cautious about some Feng Shui blunders that we might do. We should not tempt fate.

I’m not a professional Feng Shui consultant but modesty aside given my various Feng Shui training and with my continuous ‘practice’ and study I can consider myself a little more knowledgeable than an average person. However, even somebody who’s very into Feng Shui like me can get a little stubborn and create a Feng Shui blunder.

Recently, I had a reader who emailed me requesting for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant. I’m not sure how many times he’s written before I replied. But we had several email exchanged.

Instinct told me that I should not entertain CR’s email. However, as my Feng Shui teacher says we are not here to judge a person, but we’re here to just share our knowledge, even if we feel the person is not totally a good person as their Bazi would indicate.

According to CR he needs the pendant, and insisted that he’ll do a bank transfer ASAP. I reluctantly gave him my account details and he transferred money. That’s when the horror story started.

As soon as he transferred money to my account, he started bugging me wanting to get the pendant ASAP. I told him that it’s not possible because there are many people who requests for the pendant, and I’ll have to do Bazi analysis of each of the people who requested for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant. He even went as far as saying I should prioritize him and that I should just bypass all the other readers and acquaintances that has requested for the pendant. Told him that I strictly follow a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis and I need to be fair. However, since I sense his desperation, told him that I will ask some readers if they’re willing to ‘give way’ to CR. Unfortunately, the people who I thought would be willing to delay their pendants a little felt that they also need their WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant.

When I mentioned this to CR, he immediately requested that his money be transferred back to him, even it was a Sunday! A non-working day here in the Philippines. Clarified with him that it’s a Sunday and I won’t be able to do it, he then requested that the money be transferred back to him first thing Monday morning. Regular readers of this blog knows that Feng Shui consultancy is really not my bread and butter, this is not my job or work, this is just something that I do on the side because I believe in it. Clarified with CR that I won’t be able to do it in the morning. He then told me that I should do it in the morning because he doesn’t (in his own words sent thru sms)-I DON’T WANT TO TELL THIS TO MY FATHER I KNOW HIM HE CAN BE BALISTIC AND MIGHT SEND TROOPS TO U!- this is for me is a straight out threat! I told him that I’m not the type of person who will take threats lightly.

He really was insisting that the money be transferred back at a time that he wants. Even before the day ended he started calling me things and continuously threatened me. He even went as far having somebody call me and send me a message from somebody who is supposedly from the NBI. However, this person won’t even tell me his name. It had to take me until today before he finally gave his name and clarified that he was a police major who works as an aide for Sen. Franklin Drilon. I’m still checking on this. Until now I still get threats from CR and I’ll be filing a police report against him tomorrow.

The question is why did I experience such thing given that I have a lot of Feng Shui charms. I have to take a back seat and analyze the problem. That’s when it occurred me three Feng Shui blunders that I did last week. First, I went to a CBTL store, seeing that it is full of people, I reluctantly took the seat under the stairs, which is a big NO – NO! It’s a terrible Feng Shui blunder, but to be honest I count on the fact that my Feng Shui charms will do all the work.

Another Feng Shui blunder that I did last week was when on a very hot day I decided to wear a blue shirt. A color that is another big NO-NO for me, but since it was really a hot day, and that shirt is really ‘cooler’ than most of my shirts I decided to take a risk and wore the shirt.

We have to be careful about getting angry. Aside from attracting so much negative energy it also makes us do things that we normally won't do. In Buddhism, a mere bad thought is almost as good or bad as the actual act itself.

Lastly, the biggest of all Feng Shui blunders that I did was when at work, I lost my temper and unintentionally, said in a light way, that – SANA MA-KARMA SIYA DAHIL SA KASAMAAN NIYA! (Hope karma runs after her for her bad attitude!) that may have said simply out of anger and without much thought but it’s still a curse and there’s no excuse for it.

You see, Feng Shui charms work but we should never tempt fate. If we know its bad it’s best to simply avoid it and to top it off we should always try to stay positive. A simple anger created a lot of bad Feng Shui and thus I attracted people like CR.

By the way, there’s no pun intended in the initials CR. His initials are really CR. I shall do some cleansing to negate my Feng Shui blunder.

Myth Buster 5: Arowana and Fish Horn are Lucky Fishes

Published Marso 5, 2012 by jptan2012

Technically, this not a myth, taking care of Arowana and Fish Horn may bring luck to a person, specially if you got the a very auspicious looking Arowana or Fish Horn. The past decade or two saw the rise in the Arowana and Fish Horn business precisely for the belief and anecdotal testimonies that these fishes has brought so much luck to some people.

These testimonies, I would presume, are mostly true, because Arowana and Fish Horn are considered lucky fishes. In fact, a lot of professional Feng Shui consultants have capitalized on this truth that they started selling Arowana charms or Fish Horn charms.

Although, I’m writing about this belief under my Myth Buster series, this is actually a truth and not a myth, at least, technically, they’re not. There is truth to the belief the Arowana and Fish Horn is lucky fish. However, I don’t have either of the fish mentioned here.

Why? Because taking care of an Arowana and/or a Fish Horn would require me to have an aquarium. A tank of water! That will be detrimental to my Feng Shui because my Basket of Element as indicated by my Bazi shows that I have a very high weighting of the water element! As it is, without the proper Feng Shui cure for this, a high water element is creating some imbalance when it comes to my luck, and therefore I need to remedy it with Feng Shui. So having a tank of water around me such as an aquarium is like a Feng Shui suicide.

The only way of knowing whether you can have an aquarium is to check your Basket of Elements, which in turn can check only if you draw up your Bazi chart. In putting up an aquarium and taking care of fishes like Arowana and Fish Horn at home, it’s best to consult a Feng Shui expert.

Also, if you’re allowed to have an aquarium and take of auspicious fishes like the Arowana, Fish Horn, or Gold Fish, it is definitely inauspicious to feed them with live smaller fishes, worms, or even insects. I know this is what most experts recommend because this enhances the color and the beauty of the fish, however, in Buddhism; feeding them living foods create a lot of negative for the one who feeds them. You will just negate the entire auspicious blessing created by the beauty of the Arowana and Fish Horn.
