Effects of the Dreaded Hungry Ghost Month

Published Hulyo 18, 2012 by jptan2012

Yesterday we talked about the DREADED HUNGRY GHOST MONTH, and as mentioned in yesterday’s post, the Hungry Ghost Month is basically the time when hungry ghosts are released from hell so that they can eat. However, because a lot of these hungry ghosts lived a negative life or died violent deaths, a lot of them still harbor ill feelings brought about their fate, so when they’re released from hell, they also tend to do bad things to us.

I don’t think anybody has properly documented all the effects of the dreaded Hungry Ghost Month but some of the known effects are the following.

INCREASE PARANORMAL OR GHOST MANIFESTATIONS, but not all paranormal manifestations are done by hungry ghosts, sometimes it’s really just some wandering spirits that you wouldn’t normally see or feel but because of the heightened yin energy and paranormal energy brought by the Hungry Ghost month, you’ll become more sensitive to them. Having said that, it is also fairly normal to see some scary ghosts, these usually would be one of the hungry ghosts.

I once talked to a Filipina nurse, who is not aware of the Hungry Ghost month. We were talking about her job in one of the big hospitals in the country. I asked her whether night duties in the hospital give her the creeps. She said, she has gotten used to night duties, and shared that hospitals are not really very scary in the evening. But she concluded that she wonders why in her experience, a lot of patients usually complain about ghostly manifestation around August and not during Halloween. She clarified that sure enough that they will hear stories about ghosts from patients, colleagues, other hospital staffs, relative of patients from time to time, but having worked as a nurse for 14 years; she noticed that stories usually heightened sometime in August.

INCREASE NUMBER OF ACCIDENTS usually happens during the Hungry Ghost month. When I was still working as a feature story producer in one of the leading broadcast media in the Philippines I worked on a story about the rate of accidents here in the Philippines. Again, an accident happens all throughout the year, however, there’s an increase number of accidents happening around August. More than that accidents that happened in August tends to be more severe thus taking more lives.

INCREASE NUMBER OF CRIME also happens during the Hungry Ghost Month. Again, in the same feature show that I produced for, we did a story about crime. We went to three different police stations in QC, Manila, and Pasig. Surprisingly, crime rates increases sometime around August, more than that the crimes that increased is not holdup or petty theft, what increases are murder and homicide.

INCREASE NUMBER OF HOSPITAL DEATHS AND/OR UNEXPLAINABLE MEDICAL PROBLEMS FROM USUAL MEDICAL PROCEDURES also happens. The same Filipina nurse I mentioned to you in the earlier part of this post also said that there are more deaths and normal medical procedures going wrong around August. When I was doing the accident and crime story, I was able to verify that indeed hospitals have more deaths occurring around August.

INCREASE CHANCES OF BUSINESS FAILURE also happens during the Hungry Ghost Month. A Taiwanese media outfit also conducted on a the effects of the Hungry Ghost Month on business, their research showed that more business close or starts to go bankrupt around the Hungry Ghost Month, furthermore, businesses that were opened during the Hungry Ghost Month tend to do badly.

There are a lot more negative effects of a Hungry Ghost Month; the list can go on and on. On my next posts, I’ll share with you the rituals usually done during the Hungry Ghost Month and/or Hungry Ghost Festival. Also I would be sharing with you ways on how you can protect yourself during this season. I am a great believer of Feng Shui because it gives you tools to counteract negative things.

But before that, allow me to share a few, a fraction, of some of the famous things that happened during the Hungry Ghost Month.

  1. 9/11 Attack. The 911 attacks on the Twin Tower is perhaps one of the most high profile cases worldwide that happened during the Hungry Ghost Month. To be exact, it happened on the second to the last day of the Hungry Ghost Month of that year.
  2. Death of Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed also happened during the Hungry Ghost Month.
  3. Britain’s Great Train Robbery happened during the Hungry Ghost Month.
  4. Elvis Presley died right on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Festival.
  5. The Munich Massacre happened four days after the Hungry Ghost Festival.
  6. The collapse of China’s Hunan Bridge, which coincided with the collapse of the 40 year old interstate highway bridge spanning the Mississippi River in Minnesota, USA also happened during the Hungry Ghost Month.
  7. In August 7, 1998, an innocent looking truck drove up to the then US embassy and planted a powerful bomb. More than 200 people were killed in its wake.

In the Philippines…

  1. The Payatas tragedy that buried about 500 scavengers happened at the start of the ghost month that year. A 50-foot garbage fell on their houses at the height of a torrential rain.
  2. On August 3, 1999, heavy torrential rains caused a landslide that killed 58 people and buried over 100 houses at Cherry Hills Subdivision in Antipolo City.
  3. On July 16, 1990, an earthquake that registered 7.7 on the Richter scale killed 1,700 people, injured 3,000 individuals and displaced 148,000.
  4. On July 2, 1993 a floating pagoda carrying hundred of Catholic devotees during the annual pagoda festival in Bocaue, Bulacan sank into the muddy Bocaue River, killing more about half of the devotees who rode the pagoda. It was the start of the Hungry Ghost Month of that year.
  5. The ABC-5 news team involve in a tragic vehicular accident that killed all 3 passenger happened during the Hungry Ghost Month.
  6. The typhoon Ondoy tragedy in 2009 happened at the end of the Hungry Ghost Month.
  7. The Manila Hostage Crisis or what is officially known as the Rizal Park hostage-taking incident, that lasted several hours, injured several of the hostages, killed several people including the HK tourists, the hostage takers and hit the tourism industry in the country happened not only during the Hungry Ghost Month, but more that that it happened on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Festival.

The list continues but I would like to clarify that obviously not all accidents or catastrophes happens during the Hungry Ghost Month, for example the Indian Ocean Tsunami, Japan Earthquake and Tsunami happened far from the Hungry Ghost Month. What we’re saying is that incidents do tend to be worst or the chances of individuals getting into bad things are heightened during the Hungry Ghost Month.

The Grudge is Scary

Published Hunyo 24, 2012 by jptan2012

The grudge is scary and no, I’m not talking about the famous horror movie, but I’m taking about the grudge as an emotion. Holding a grudge is one of the worst things you can do for yourself. It destroys you, it makes you unhappy, and worst of all it creates a lot of bad Feng Shui.

I personally know of a Feng Shui believer, let’s call her AM, whose life was destroyed because of the grudge she carries in her heart. The truth is, and I say this without judgment, she grew up with a very selfish heart. She has a grudge against her parents and younger sister because she felt that her sister’s life was better than hers because her mom got to spend more time with her sister when the sister was growing up, than with her when she was growing up. She should have realized that this is only because her parents are more financially stable when her sister was born.

Furthermore, she holds a grudge against to all her employees who leaves the company. When her employees decides to leaves her company, she always takes it personally, and keeps a grudge against the employees. She’ll delete them on her Facebook friends list, but more than that she’ll go out of her way to spread malicious bad rumor about the said employee. She has done this to most if not all of her employees. One time she even said that an employee got cancer because the said employee resigned from the office.

One of the worst things she’s ever done was when an employee resigned, she begged the said employee to stay, the said employee stayed for another year. After that the said employee submitted another resignation. AM again requested the said employee to stay because AM felt that nobody can easily take over the employee’s duties. The employee agreed under the condition that AM will start getting involved with the accounts that the employee is handling and that AM will start hiring a replacement. Six months after, there was no single replacement hired, and AM has yet to fulfill her promise to get more involved with the employees account. The employee felt that AM didn’t put any effort into fulfilling her promises, so the employee to just submit an irrevocable resignation. When AM got the resignation, she called the employee to request again not to leave the company. This is the employee’s third resignation and so he didn’t give in to AM’s request. AM unable to convince the employee to stay, then requested the employee that the clients be not informed, AM said told the employee that she wants to personally inform them. The employee agreed.

Two days after, the employee started getting phone messages from clients sharing their sympathy with the employee. Apparently, AM told the client that the employee has a family emergency and is not sure when to return. She also told the clients that the employee left without delegating his duties, a lie that she concocted. She even told the clients that the employee run off with some money. Later on she told the clients that she decided to fire the employee because he was not doing his job well.

One day, some of the clients decided to call up the employee and they had lunch. During lunch AM called up the employee to talk about a project that the employee has started. AM wants to discontinue the project saying it’s not possible and that everything has been a hoax. The client said that it has to be continued. AM called up the employee to inquire about the project and to ask for the contacts. The employee told AM the ways to continue the project but declined to give the contacts, but he informed AM that ‘I can finish this project for you, absolutely free, you don’t have to pay, it’s my commitment. I hope you do understand that I cannot give you the contacts because they are my contacts and therefore a professional relationship that I need to take care of.’ AM got angry and hang up. She then called the client who at that time was with the employee or the former employee. She told the client that the employee was just in her office to turn over some things, and that she had a talk with the employee and that the employee admitted that it’s impossible to push through with the project because he’s been lying. Obviously, this was a lie because she just called the employee while he was having lunch with the clients and the clients heard the things that he said to AM. To further bait AM, the client asked AM whether he can to the employee, AM said, ‘Oh, he just stepped out of the office, just now.’ Needless to say, AM was fired by the client.

AM is a very intelligent woman, she rose from rags to riches, and singlehandedly put up her company. She has gotten several awards for the things she does, and she is a staunch believer in Feng Shui. However, she loves keeping a grudge even if she was not wrong. If things don’t go her way she keeps a grudge.

Sad to say, no amount of Feng Shui or prayers or intelligence is able to counter the negative effects of the grudge she keeps in her heart. Despite being one of the most intelligent people, she has loss a lot of her clients, furthermore, her marriage deteriorated and she just recently separated from her husband. Most of her trusted employees have left her, and her projects are ‘epic’ failure, the latest of which was criticized by the public as a racist campaign, and because of this she lost another client.

Remember, it’s useless to use Feng Shui if you are unable to Feng Shui your inner self.

Four Different Types of Bad Luck Base on Your Kua Number

Published Mayo 18, 2012 by jptan2012

The other day, I talked about the FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF LUCK BASE ON YOUR KUA NUMBER, today allow me to share with you the 4 different types of bad luck base on your Kua number.

One of these bad lucks is called HO HAI, which is loosely translated as ‘accidents and mishaps’, this is a unlucky direction in the sense that continuously confronting or activating this luck by facing its corresponding direction base on your Kua number will create some bad luck that should have been otherwise preventable. For example, you can fall off the stairs and break a leg, or through carelessness might miss out on some detail with work that might create some problem with your boss or colleagues or clients.

Another bad luck is the WU KWEI, literal translation is “Five Ghost’. This may sound scary and to some extent it is really quite scary. For people who have requested me to read their Bazi, I call this luck as ‘Personal Bad Luck’, because Wu Kwei tends to attack anything that’s quite personal. For example, if you’re a parent a child might get hurt, it can also create a lot of disharmony and quarrels both in your work place and at home. You might also have problems with fire and theft.

LIU SHA or “Six Killings’ is another bad luck. This basically attacks your career and wealth luck. Meaning, you might lose a job or get into trouble because of it. It’s secondary effect is with the family, you might have a broken family or have some financial problems because of family matters like a family member that gets into gambling or an illness that will need long term care thus creating financial problems.

The last of these bad lucks is CHUEH MING, which is also directly can be translated into “Total Loss’, this may be scariest of all the bad luck direction base on your Kua number.  This is considered as the most fatal of all directions, because it might create total bad luck. Continuously facing or ‘activating’ this direction might even negate your good karma and good Feng Shui.

If you wish to know more about how to calculate your Kua number you can also read my post called – WHAT IS FENG SHUI KUA NUMBER AND HOW TO CALCULATE IT.

Dementia

Published Enero 21, 2012 by jptan2012

Dementia is a scary disease. It breaks the heart of a love one and may even break families.

I have a friend whose mother had dementia. At first, it manifested as a slight change in attitude, the person gets moodier, little by little she started forgetting where she put things. She lost their cordless phone at home, only to find out later that she had put it inside the freezer. Then, she almost burned their house, because she was cooking dinner, went upstairs and forgot that she was cooking. One time, she forgot the name of her husband and soon she forgot how to open a door. They were told that she has an early onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

According to my friend, the worst part of the disease is not that they have to take care of her. It’s not even the change in attitude, she being moody, although it was really bad and really painful its still not the worst. The worst is when his mother started forgetting about them, forgetting about herself, forgetting about life.

It was so bad, that my friend’s father who is unable to cope with the pain, started looking for the caring, loving, thoughtful wife she had elsewhere. He started having affairs in the hope that he’ll find his wife again. The sister of my friend so hated this that to this day, she still doesn’t talk to her father.

My friend’s mom had since passed away, but the pain still lingers. Dementia, Alzheimer’s, whatever you call it, its a scary cruel disease that brings pain.

I will not attempt to talk about the nature of the disease in detail, there are a lot of websites that can do that better. But I want to write about it because I saw how it affected my friend’s family.

Also want to share with you how you can cut the risk of dementia. Yahoo! had an article about it. Please read through it by clicking here.
