Citrus and Salt Solution for Cleansing of Negative Energies!

Published Hulyo 6, 2017 by jptan2012

The preceding post is about how to take away minor negative energies by simply putting some citrus fruit in one’s room for three days.

Today, allow me to share with you a simple and natural way to help take away negative energy. This is especially good if you’re going to a wake or to the hospital and you don’t have a Vajrapani Ruel and/or a Kalachakra pendant.

It’s pretty simple.

All you need is a small spray bottle. Fill it up, but not up to the rim, with water. Then place three drops of a citrus fruit juice. You can use either lemon, Philippine calamansi, lime, pomelo or even orange. But I prefer pomelo or even calamansi. Then get a pinch of rock salt or sea salt or Pink Himalayan Salt and put it inside the bottle with water. Shake it well until the salts are dissolved.

If you go to a wake or hospital or to the cemetery spray a little above your head when you leave. That should cleanse you from any negative energy that might have attached to yourself from the yin place that you just visited.

What’s nice with this is that you can share this solution with other people.

The citrus fruit juice will spoil, so what I do instead is add a little vodka to help preserved the juice. About 7 drops of vodka will do.

Feng Shui Tips to Enhance Wealth Luck, Financial Luck, and Money Luck!

Published Abril 7, 2017 by jptan2012

Last January 25, 2012 I wrote a post called FENG SHUI TIPS TO ENHANCE WEALTH LUCK! – Little did I know that it’ll become a constant most read article from the time it was written to this day, weirdly surpassed only by two other articles, namely:

I can understand why people would like the MYTH BUSTER 5 article, but I didn’t realize that a lot of people have been encountering bats.

Anyway, if you notice, what I wrote before is an article about increasing wealth luck. In this article, I will talk about wealth luck and financial luck. So what is the difference? Wealth luck refers more to more than just finances or financial. It refers to properties or even other aspects of getting rich. Financial luck refers to finances, it may be liquid or not. Money luck simply refers to money on hand.

You will notice that this article is going to be mostly a repeat of previous articles but more than that I have updated it and included more tips. You might also see yourself getting directed to older articles, this is when I need to manage the length of this article and will not have time to explain everything here.

When people found out that I studied Feng Shui and do Feng Shui consulting and audit on the side, they always ask me as to how can they enhance their wealth luck. Again, this is a question that can be fully answered by looking at the Bazi (also called Paht Chee, Four Pillars, Eight Characters) chart of the person. The Bazi is basically a formula wherein you look at the luck potential of a person by looking at their birth date and time.

Sometimes, there are specific wealth or financial or money amulet for a person depending on what the Bazi chart showed. However, there are some Buddhist or Taoist amulets that helps enhance wealth, financial, and money luck. Furthermore, there are Feng Shui symbols that will surely do the same.

Here are some of my favorite wealth, financial, and money luck enhancers…

VAJRAPANI RUEL

Lately, one of the Buddhist amulets that have the highest personal miraculous testimonies that have to do with enhancing wealth luck or financial luck or money is the controversial Vajrapani Ruel. I say that it is controversial because other than being considered as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, I think it is also one of the most attacked amulet, but the testimonies speaks for it self.

Here are just some of the more astounding and most read stories of the Vajrapani Ruel shared by my readers.

Please note that the Vajrapani Ruel although has a very high rate of money, financial, or wealth luck enhancement capabilities, it is still largely a protective amulet. But you will also find that it has a wish fulfilling capabilities.

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.

SURANGAMA MANTA AMULET

Although this amulet doesn’t enjoy as many personal testimonies as the Vajrapani Ruel, you will find that several readers still did experienced some wonderful financial luck stories about it. In fact, one of my readers said that she finds the Surangama Mantra Amulet better than the Vajrapani Ruel. You can read the story separately by clicking on the link below.

TRADITIONAL SUTRA AMULET (TSA)

THREE-LEGGED TOAD

The three-legged toad is one of the oldest and most powerful Feng Shui wealth charm or enhancer. However, for some time it was quite forgotten until Lillian Too of World of Feng Shui popularized it again.

My personal experience with the three-legged toad is simply astounding. However, what I want to share with you right now is about a friend’s experience with the three-legged toad. She asked me as to what can enhance her financial luck. After looking at her chart, I saw that her wealth luck is already ripe, but for some reason it hasn’t manifested yet. In fact, she’s currently in dire financial problem. I told her to get a three-legged toad. Furthermore, I gave her a three-legged toad pendant, and 2 months after she got the pendant and the three-legged toads, which she displayed in her house, she won the grand jackpot prize of the 6/42 lotto (in the Philippines). She won more than 4 million pesos! She swears it’s because of the three-legged toad…and I fully agree.

In getting the three-legged toad, please make sure that you place it adjacent to your front door. You can 3, 6, or 9 or more as long as it’s divisible by 3. Make sure that you have one toad facing the door and the other facing inside the house. Just scatter them on the floor; it can be under your table or chair. Never put the three-legged toad on the table they should always be on the floor and make sure that they all have a coin in their mouth!

Wearing a three legged toad pendant is also very auspicious!

You also might want to get to know more about the 3 – Legged Toad from Liu Hai. In a post called: An Unknown But Powerful Taoist Deity Called Liu Hai.

Three Legged Toad

The 3-Legged Toad. Please make sure when buying this you choose a three legged toad, there are some who sells the image of the frog. It’s not the same. It has to be the three-legged toad and choose the one with a coin in its mouth.

SAILING SHIPS

This is also one of the most powerful wealth charm or enhancer. You can place this on your sheng chi direction and or at the entrance of your house, store, or office. But please make sure that it’s ‘going in’ and not ‘going out’. You can also add some lucky coins on the ship.

However, I need to stress that if your element in your Bazi chart is really high in water or a weak fire, the Sailing Ship may not be the best wealth enhancer for you.

I recommended this to a friend whose retail store is just breaking even. He’s not making any money. After placing the Sailing Ship in his store, his sales started increasing. In fact, he now has 3 other stores.

Feng Shui Sailing Ship

In choosing a sailign ship, it would be better if it’s made of metal and colored in gold. Please make sure also that it’s going in and not out.

THE AUSPICIOUS WEALTH VASE

This is another powerful wealth enhancer. In fact, when I went to China, I realized that a lot of my wealthier relatives have wealth vases in their house. Yes, they keep not just one but several. One of my distant uncle has one in his living room, another one in the kitchen, one for each of the bedrooms, so not surprisingly, he also the wealthiest of my relatives in China.

The wealth vase is also both a Taoist and Buddhist wealth enhancer. In fact, to this day you’ll see Buddhist temples doing wealth vase blessings or wealth vase ceremonies.

In preparing a wealth vase you’ll need the following:

Any auspicious looking vase with a big mouth and a large body. It should have a cover also.

Five different cloths that can cover the head of the Vase. The colors should be white (metal), red (fire), blue (water), yellow (earth), green (wood). They represent the five elements.

Five different strings also representing the 5 elements.

3 different beans or grains. (E.g. Coffee bean, Red Bean, Rice Grain)

Whole Tea Leaves

Salt

Sugar

Three different candies or preserved fruits (no menthol).

Soil (preferably from a rich man that you admire).

Money – Five different denominations. (Preferably you ask this from the rich people that you admire.)

Picture of 3 different rich people.

Picture of your dream house.

Picture of your dream car.

Faux diamond or other semi precious stone.

Faux gold coins, ingots, bars.

Incense.

Image or Statuette of a Deity (Guan Gong, Sun Wukong (Monkey G0d), Tua Peh Kong, Dzambhala). They should be made of metal.

Wealth Amulets from a Taoist temple. (Optional)

First you place the soil at the bottom of the vase, followed by the tea leaves, grains, fruit preserves or candies, salt, sugar, picture of the dream house, dream car, wealth people, and then the money.

Put the wealth deity on top of the money. Take note where it’s facing and consider it as the front side of the wealth vase. Make a mark so you don’t forget.

Then fill the wealth vase with faux gems, gold (coins, ingots, bars) and all the other ‘ingredients’. Once they filled place the Taoist wealth amulets. Then cover with the lid. Place the 5 different cloths on top of the lid. Yellow first, followed by white, followed by blue, and then followed by green, then red. Then tie it with the five different color strings.

Place your wealth vase inside the cabinet to keep it hidden. Make sure that the deity inside is not facing out of the house but rather he should be facing in, thus you need to make a mark.

Wealth Vase

The Wealth Vase is used by a lot of Chinese to tap into their wealth luck. In fact, if you go to a house of a wealthy person in China, most likely they’ll have a wealth vase hidden somewhere in their house.

FAUX GOLD BARS OR INGOTS

If you were just building your house, it would be great if you can bury 168 pieces of faux gold coins under your main entrance. By doing this you literally walk on them every time you enter your house, thus you seem like ‘walking on money’. Also, you can put 21 pieces of this faux coins at all the entrance of the bedrooms of your house. You can also put 21 pieces of this faux gold coins under your bed.

You can also litter faux gold coins or faux gold ingots at different parts and corners of your house. This is to signify ‘money everywhere’.

goldgold-ingots-coins-bars2-400x300

Faux golld bars, ingots, and coins.

WEAR AN IMAGE OF A BUDDHA, BODHISATTVA, DEITY, DRAGON, OR TAOIST GODS

Another powerful wealth enhancer is the wearing of the different images of wealth deity. This is better if the pendant is made of gold, because for the Chinese gold is considered as the ultimate symbol of wealth and is also very auspicious.

Some of the suggested deity pendants are the image of KUAN YIN, GUAN GONG (KUAN KONG), DZAMBHALA, MAITREYA BUDDHA (also known as THE HAPPY FAT BUDDHA), and SUN WUKONG.

SALT IN THE WALLET.

Another way of creating good wealth luck is to always have a small packet of sea or rock salt in our wallet. Salt is a great chi cleanser, and having this in our pocket helps enhance wealth/money luck.sea-salt

PUT A WEALTH SIGN OR WEALTH SYMBOL AS WALLPAPER ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE.

Feng Shui is all about symbolism, and putting a symbol of wealth as a wallpaper of your mobile phone helps a little in giving our wealth luck a little boost. You can use either of the following: three legged toad, pictures of gold bars, gold ingots and/or different currencies.

PUT THE WISH FULFILLING MANTRA AS WALLPAPER ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE

I’ve talked about the WISH FULFILLING MANTRA and the power of MANTRA in my previous posts. Putting the symbolic script of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra on your mobile phone helps in actualizing your wealth luck wishes.

WEAR A NINE-EYE DZI BEAD.

A DZI bead is a special Tibetan bead that is suppose to have come from heaven. The DZI beads available in the market now are not original but they work as well. Wearing a 9-eye DZI bead either as a pendant or as a bracelet creates a lot of wealth luck. Strung this with real citrine beads and a jade Piyao (Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pixie) to further enhance its energies.citrine dzi piyao

WEAR A GOLD OR JADE PIYAO

A Piyao (or Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pi Xie, Pixie) is not only a good amulet to appease Tai Suey, but it is also a very good wealth enhancer.

WEAR AN IMAGE OF LIU HAI

It is said that only Liu Hai can manage the three – legged toad, which makes him an excellent wealth enhancer Taoist deity. You can read more about him on an article I have written about him before.

ALWAYS HAVE THE 8 NATURAL WEALTH AND FINANCIAL EHANCER INGREDIENTS AT HOME.

There are some very simple ingredients that we can find at home that can help enhance our wealth and financial luck. You can find the list by clicking here.

LEARN HOW TO USE CITRINE WATER OR CRYSTAL GRID

Citrine is one of the most powerful wealth luck, or money luck, or financial luck enhancer. Learn how to do them by reading the following articles:

Lastly, there is one thing that a lot of us forget. To help enhance wealth luck, financial luck, or money luck, remember that RECEIPTS IN THE WALLET/POCKET CREATE BAD MONEY FENG SHUI. Most of us tend to keep receipts in our wallet or pocket and just forget about it. In fact, it is not surprising that some of us may have some receipts in our wallet that’s been there for months or years. However, you should note that keeping a receipt in your wallet or pocket might create slight bad money Feng Shui. It signifies that you always have bills to pay.

And if you feel that everything is good with you, sustain it with Red and Gold. Learn more about it by clicking here.

Salt and Something Sweet to Counter Some Minor Bad Luck!

Published Oktubre 29, 2016 by jptan2012

 

cakeReally a lot of people are so insensitive with minor bad lucks that things build up and become major bad lucks that create major problems. While some bad luck are instant, most bad lucks starts small. If we are just sensitive enough we will know that things are not going well.

By sensitive, I don’t mean you have to be psychic, it only means that you have to be more conscious of your luck. Bad luck can really start with having a rough day, or really simple things, like an unusual traffic or spilling the salt, or spilling a glass of water, or even just ALMOST (keyword is almost) falling off the stairs or chair or even while just walking. Or even losing a key or a paper that you need even if it is not a matter of life and death.

The truth is you can actually sense if you are about to hit some bad luck. sea-salt

While you have these minor bad lucks it is best to remedy it right away. You can put salt on each room of your house, take a salt bath. But also create a good chi via a festive atmosphere. How?

Share some sweets with family or friends. By sweets, I mean you can eat cake or share some fruit salad and have some very tone down party.

Try it. It will make a difference.

Guide Lines In Going To The Cemetery!

Published Oktubre 25, 2016 by jptan2012

cemeteryThe month of November is a double black month in the sense that the #2 Flying Star, which is also known as the Illness Star, a star that causes not only illness but grave accidents is doubled this month in the center. Furthermore, the most dreaded star, the #5 Flying Star or Wu Wang also called as Five Yellow Star is doubled in the Northeast. This affects all the people whose rooms (office / bedroom) are in the northeast, or whose house door or office door faces northeast, but most especially, people born under the year of the Ox and Tiger.

We all know that this means the month of November is going to be bad for those who are affected, as mentioned above, but also we have to be careful about being sick and accidents. This will not happen until November 7, 2016, but since we are going through Halloween, it is best to take precautions.

The cemetery or a columbarium is negative place, it is a place where yin energy rules. So going to the cemetery might not be advisable especially since we are going through a yin month. This is especially true for those born in the year of the Ox and Tiger.

But All Saints Day / All Souls Day is a big deal for a lot of Filipinos. We really have to go to the cemetery to pay our respect to our departed loved ones. So what do we do then?

First, make sure you go there in the morning, and don’t stay until in the evening. Because evening is considered as yin. Then make sure you go there at a time where a lot of people are in the cemetery, because having a lot of people creates a lot of yang energy, so it is better to be around the yang energy while you are at the cemetery. I know some people would like to go there before All Saints Day / All Souls Day so that it will not be too crowded. But it is better to go there while a lot of people are at the cemetery because, as mentioned, you will need the yang energy.

Make sure also you wear your powerful amulets. If you don’t have the Vajrapani Ruel or the Kalachakra pendant or Surangama Mantra Amulet, wear something you really believed in and are powerful and that you are sure will protect you.

 

It is also advisable to wear something bright and happy. Don’t wear black or blue.

On your way to the cemetery alternately chant the mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani – OM VAJRAPANI HUM – and OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT.  Stop only upon entering the site where your loved one is buried. Then first thing you should do is light a candle. Light a red candle if he/she has passed away more than 3 years. Then use yellow if under 3 years.

Also if possible, bring a Mantra Box (a device that plays mantras – see photo) and play it there while you are there. It’s best to play the mantra of Amitabha Buddha – NAMO AMITUOFO – or – OM AMI DEWA HRIH.

mantra box

When leaving for a long period of time get a small mantra box like the one in the picture. Don’t get anythings that’s really fancy such as those with lights, they consume battery energy faster. These are more energy efficient and 2 AA Batteries will last for a longer period of time.

On your way out start chanting the two mantras again and then if possible swing by a temple and light an incense. If you can swing by a temple go and eat at a restaurant before going home.

When you get home, make sure you take off all your clothing and have them wash with a teaspoon of salt. You should also take a salt bath or shower. Remember that it has to be sea salt, rock salt, or pink Himalayan salt.

Eye Twitching: Is There A Feng Shui Significance? And What To Do?

Published Setyembre 29, 2016 by jptan2012

eye-twitchingYesterday (time of posting may not be time of writing) a reader in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia contacted me to ask me about eye twitching. It was significant enough for her to be bothered and get in touch with me.

Her left eye has been twitching several times a day, mostly at the same time frame, and also for several days.

Eye twitching is normal and there is a scientific explanation to it. However, if it happens roughly at about the same time, for several days, it usually signifies that there is something about to happen. It is basically your body feeling the energy of your aura, which in turn is affected by the energies of the universe, especially the ones that has something to do with you.

So when your eyes twitch it usually means that there is a message for you. The message can be either good or bad, this is usually determined whether it was your left or right eye that twitches, time of day, and sometimes even number of days.

The message could be as mundane as getting a visitor or it can be something more serious like getting some huge financial luck or it can be because of a pending danger.

However, the truth is normally I don’t bother myself with knowing the details. When an eye twitches I usually recommend that you just do the following ritual.

  1. Go outside your house. Inside the gate will do just make sure your outside of the house.
  2. Get a pinch of salt and throw it over your left shoulder (if left eye is the one twitching) or over your right shoulder (if right eye is the one twitching).
  3. Do this for one day to three days. If continues then do it for seven days. The twitching should stop by then.

If you’re Buddhist or believes in the power of mantras, do the following instead:

  1. Go outside of your house. Inside the gate will do just make sure you’re outside of the main house.
  2. Chant OM AMI DEWA HRIH 3x
  3. Then get a pinch of salt and throw it over your left shoulder if the left is the one twitching or right eye if it is the right eye that twitches.
  4. Then chant the following mantras 3x each: OM MANI PADME HUM and OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT.
  5. Do this for one to three days. If it continues then do it for seven days.

The good thing with this is that you don’t have to bother yourself with whether the twitching is good or bad. Because by doing this simple ritual you take out the bad luck, but if its good luck then it either has no effect or it enhances it.

Gave this recommendation to my reader and she sent a messaged to inform me that her eyes has stopped twitching.

Cleanse Yourself From the Effects of the Harvest Moon (Post Mid – Autumn Festival) Eclipse Last Week!

Published Setyembre 19, 2016 by jptan2012

All eclipses are bad because it signifies the imbalance of Yin and Yang. All brightness whether it is from the sun or from the moon, which signifies Yang energy, is blocked out therefore bringing darkness, which signifies Yin Energy. So needless to say, all eclipses are bad.

Last week, while stuck in traffic, I wrote about the lunar eclipse happening on a Harvest Moon (Mid – Autumn Festival / Mooncake Festival). Because it was written in haste, I was not able to explain further the significance of Harvest Moon.

You can read my post about the eclipse entitled – TODAY’S LUNAR ECLIPSE AFFECTING THE HARVEST MOON SIGNIFIES DOUBLE BAD LUCK – by clicking here.

For the Chinese right after Mid – Autumn Festival is called Harvest Moon because the harvest season continues. This is one of the most celebrated events because it signifies ushering in of renewed good chi; especially we are coming from the previous month of negative chi because of the Hungry Ghost Month!

Because I was late in posting it, a lot of you might have read the post after you have been already exposed from the negative chi of the lunar eclipse, and naturally a lot of you emailed me and several of you who knows my mobile number sent a message and called frantic about being exposed to the effect of the lunar eclipse. And so I decided to write about how to cleanse yourself from the effects of the Harvest Moon Eclipse last week and move the original post for some other day.

If you have been exposed or if you are outdoor while the eclipse happened but wears the Vajrapani Ruel, Surangama Mantra Amulet, or a Kalachakra during or immediately after the exposure, then you need not worry, you should be fine. If until now you haven’t worn those amulets or you don’t have them I suggest you wear or carry the symbolic script of the immediate negative karma cleansing mantra OM AH HUM. (Please see photo)om-ah-hum

Also for the next 7 days put 2 tablespoon of rock salt or sea salt, or pink Himalayan salt on your tub and soak yourself in it for about 5 minutes, all the while chanting OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. If you don’t have a bathtub, you can put it in a pail of water or in a basin then use that as your first wash. Chant OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT while dousing yourself with the water. If you use a shower, you can get two handful of salt and slowly rub it on your body before your final wash. While rubbing chant OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT and then let the salt stay your body for two minutes and chant the same mantra.

Spilling Salt Is A Sign of Bad Luck!

Published Setyembre 16, 2016 by jptan2012
spilled-salt-bottle-on-table

Photo uploaded from Google Images

In the preceding post, I talked about the how salt is used as main and very essential ingredient in making the Catholic Church’s holy water.

Today, I would like to share with you another thing about salt.

Once, while having dinner with some High School friends, one of them accidentally spilled salt. I told him that spilling salt is a sign that bad luck is about to come, meaning a bad thing or bad things may soon happen. As I was about to proceed to tell him how to counter or stop the bad luck from happening, he sort of rudely told me that he is a Christian and that he don’t believes in such things. Another friend who knows my interest in Feng Shui signal for me to just keep quiet. Until now, I still don’t know whether I did the right thing.

For soon after that incident, that particular High School friend entered into a bad business and he almost lost everything. He was reminded of his encounter with me and asked me as to what he should do. Luckily, at that time the Vajrapani Ruel is already available and so he got one. Soon he started to put his business back and got back what he lost.

But the question is whether he can do anything when he spilled the salt to stop the bad luck? The answer is yes. He can be more cautious and be aware of the warning. He can also simply pinch a salt from the spilled salt and throw it over his shoulders while chanting OM AMI DEWA HRIH or OM AH HUM or OM MANI PADME HUM seven times. By doing that one can surely prevent the bad luck from happening or at the very least, it can help you from receiving the full impact of the bad luck.

Having said that, I would like to clarify that spilling salt doesn’t bring bad luck. Spilling salt signifies that bad luck may happen. So the bad luck is already there and is forthcoming, spilling salt serves as a warning.
