Myth Buster 45: Throwing Coins Creates Safe Travel!

Published Hulyo 7, 2017 by jptan2012

Recently, there was a news about a Chinese woman who delayed an airline flight by 5 hours because for good luck and safe trip she decided to throw coins into the propeller of the jet.

I was swamped with the question whether there is a basis for this.

This practice started hundred of years ago when the main mode of transportation to other places is by boat or ship. When they will a rough part of the sea, they will throw some offerings to the sea to help appease the gods or spirit of the sea. Later on throwing coins seems easier then people start to think that they should throw coins to deceive the spirit that these are ‘people’ since coins have images of heroes, they will then stop getting the spirit of those aboard the boat or ship.

I personally don’t know whether this has any basis. But I’m inclined to believe that this is not true. I have written about Feng Shui rituals for a safe trip before. But to make easier I simply bring my Vajrapani Ruel and my Kalachakra pendant with me. With that I’m assured of safe flight.

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.

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.

Let Us All Pray for Peace and Protection for the Philippines and Asia!

Published Hulyo 15, 2016 by jptan2012

The Philippines is currently in a very volatile situation, we just won the in the international court in The Hague, and while there is much reason to celebrate; the country was also put in a compromising situation. Why? Because China is a big bully and it is clear that they won’t honor the ruling and in fact has already called it null and void. The Philippines interim Department of Foreign Affairs secretary, Perfecto Yasay, who was involve in a controversy when he was still a SEC Chairman, has acknowledge this but unfortunately he has offered a less appealing ‘solution’ which earned him the ire of many Filipinos.

I will no longer go into the details of the matter. Simply Google it and you would know what is the case all about. Whether it is called South China Sea or West Philippine Sea, one thing is clear, the country is in a volatile situation at the moment. Worst situation is go into war, and while other countries has started to show their support by sending forces in the country, when China declares war with us and if with our without allies it is going to be a delicate and precarious situation with us.

It is because of this I strongly urge all my readers to please pray for the Philippines and the Southeast Asian countries. Please pray the following mantras everyday, 108 times a day each mantra, for the next 6 months:

  1. OM AMI DEWA HRIH
  2. OM MUNI MUNI MAHĀ MUNI YE SOHA
  3. TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA
  4. OM MANI PADME HUM
  5. OM MAITRI MAHĀ MAITRI MAITREYA SOHA
  6. OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM
  7. OM TARE TUTTARE TURE MAMA AYUR PUNYE JNANA PUSHTIM KURU SOHA
  8. OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  9. OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT
  10. TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHNISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NI SOHA

Then you can recite the following sutras everyday also:

  1. The Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra
  2. The Diamond SutraEarth Store Bodhisattva Sutra
  3. The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata or Medicine Sutra

Lastly, you can also offer oil, flowers, light (candle or synthetic), fruits and vegetables to images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas for peace and protection.

Dedicate all the merits of these deeds to the protection of the Philippines and SEA and also for peace.

Furthermore, those who have the Vajrapani Ruel, which is regarded as the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, or the Surangama Mantra Amulet can help by putting the Vajrapani Ruel on top of the Philippines in a printed map, and the Surangama (also spelled as Shurangama) Mantra Amulet at center of Asia.

Always Bring A Small Amount of Salt For Protection From Bad Luck!

Published Hunyo 22, 2016 by jptan2012

I always bring a small amount of salt with me. Why?

Regular readers of this blog would know that I’m a firm believer of the cleansing power of sea salt or rock salt and most especially Pink Himalayan Salt.

After more than 650 articles posted on this blog, I’m not sure whether I have written any article solely to talk about the wonderful Feng Shui and esoteric benefits of a sea salt, rock salt, and my favorite Pink Himalayan salt. But I’m sure that I have mentioned it several times on various articles.

himalayan_pink_salt

My favorite for Feng Shui purposes is the Pink Himalayan Salt

And so why do I always bring a small amount of salt? That is because it is a powerful, very affordable, natural and efficient way of protecting oneself, especially if one is experiencing a lot of negativities  or bad luck with his/her day or days. If there are a lot of negativities happening, you can simply sprinkle a small amount of salt around your area and it will sure help cleanse the surroundings and make the day better.

Back when I was still an employee, and one of my bosses was really ‘monstrous’ and is always throwing negativities on her employees. I would always sprinkle a small amount of salt after I had some discussions with her.

If someone throws you an evil eye, then sprinkle that salt and depending on the strength of the negative energy thrown you that energy may be deflected or tempered.

But perhaps one of the most wonderful protections that I experienced from about a teaspoon of rock salt that I experienced was when the company I used to work for had a biking event. This was several years back, more than 15 years ago. Some bikers will bike from Makati to Pampanga. This is basically a short distance from bikers. I tried to warn the organizers that the day they choose for the biking event is bad, but they don’t believe in Feng Shui. So they went ahead with the event. As usual, I have a small amount of salt with me. About a teaspoon. Let me clarify that I was with them to support the event. What happened was it seems like at every kilometer, somebody is into some kind of an accident. Until finally, one of the celebrity bikers who was with us had an accident just before we enter Bulacan. That’s when the head of the organizing team called me and asked whether I can do something. Well, I was not sure whether it would work, but I sprinkled the small amount of salt with me at the head of the “line”. It worked; we no longer had any accident.

So how do we bring the salt with us? Just put in a small plastic, or in a small plastic container and put it in your pocket or wallet. I make sure I change mine every 2 weeks.

5 Ways to Protect Yourself From Evil Eye and/or Witchcraft!

Published Hunyo 16, 2016 by jptan2012

“How do I protect myself from witchcraft or evil eye?”

I have been asked this question a lot. That if I were to charge ten Philippine peso per person every time I’m asked this question, I would have earned several thousands of peso by now.

In order to save time from answering this question, I thought I’d just write about it.

But before we talk about that, it begets the question as to evil eye or witchcraft is real?

If we were to base our answer on Buddhist Sutras and Taoist texts, the answer is definitely yes. In fact, one of the Shakyamuni Buddha’s disciple, Ananda, was bewitched by a witch so that he will break his vow of celibacy and sleep with her daughter who happens to be a hospitality girl. This is where the Surangama Mantra started, and it was followed by the Surangama Sutra.

Evil Eye is basically “usog” in Filipino. This happens when a person who has a strong neutral or bad chi looks at you and intentionally or unintentionally wish you bad thing, and that bad thing happens to you. Or when a person gives you that look and you start to get sick. This is quite common than we realize.

Witchcraft on the other hand is not very common. I believe that it still exist, however, it is not as common as most people think it is. Doing witchcraft is much more complicated and requires a lot of chi. however, contrary to popular belief, despite the negative connotation of the word; witchcraft does not necessary mean evil. There are positive witchcraft, it really depends on what energy you use. But for the purpose of this article, witchcraft here refers to something evil or bad.

Here are top 5 ways to protect yourself from evil eye or witchcraft:

STAY POSITIVE AND STAY GOOD. If we stay positive and if we stay good we only attract positive chi. this should help protect us from all those evil eyes or negative power of witchcraft.

WEAR AN AMETHYST OR CLEAR QUARTZ. Wearing these two crystals will provide us with a positive auric shield. However, this is only effective for evil eyes and light form of witchcraft. If you are attacked with something stronger then this definitely will not work.

TAKE A SALT BATH. If you suspect that you got the evil eye or witchcraft is being done to you. Take a salt bath, make sure you use rock salt, sea salt, pink Himalayan salt, or the rare black salt. Put approximately 1 tablespoon of the salt on a small pail of water and use this at the start before you shampoo or soap yourself. For a bathtub, use about a cup and soak in it for a minimum of 5 minutes. Do this for one to three days for evil eye. If you suspect witchcraft, do this for 7 to 21 days.

WEAR A POWERFUL AMULET. One of the best ways to protect you from evil eye and witchcraft is to wear some powerful amulet. My favorite is definitely the one that is regarded as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon called Vajrapani Ruel, but of course the Surangama Mantra Amulet blessed by a high ranking monk should work very well as well, the Illness Suppression Amulet is also a very good protective amulet for evil and witchcraft. The Jatukam Ramathep Amulet is also a very powerful amulet for this purpose.

CHANT PROTECTIVE MANTRAS IN A DEEP MEDITATIVE STATE. Chanting protective mantras in a deep meditative state, in a state that you are almost not aware of your surroundings is a very good protection against evil eye or witchcraft. The following mantras should prove helpful if chanted one after the other: (1.) OM AMI DEWA HRIH       (2.) NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CHALE CHULE CHUNDI SOHA       (3.) TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHNISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NI SOHA.

Chant it 108x each mantra.

From Super Typhoon Hagupit to A Mere Tropical Depression: Proof that Prayers and Mantras Work

Published Disyembre 9, 2014 by jptan2012

hagupitSuper Typhoon Hagupit with local name Ruby was the year’s strongest typhoon anywhere on the planet. It is also the longest staying typhoon in the Philippines in the recorded history.
Right from the start, there has been several warning given by different weather forecasting bureau or agencies. The trajectory and the path vary, but they all agree on one thing, Hagupit is the year’s strongest typhoon of the world.
When it became apparent that Hagupit or Ruby as it is called here in the Philippines is not going to veer away from the Philippines, all the weather forecasting bureau sent out a warning that while it may not be as strong as Yolanda or Typhoon Haiyan, it definitely comes close to it and damage that it will bring is about is definitely going to be almost as bad.
This prompted the Catholic Church to issue to its followers to do an hourly Oratio Imperata (Prayer for Deliverance from Calamities), which was followed by some Buddhist temples to issue the required mantras and to conduct a 72 hours continues chanting of mantras and sutras.
The question is did these prayers and chanting of mantras and sutras worked? If you were to ask me, I think it’s a definite yes. One example is when they typhoon crossed the sea, it should definitely gain more strength, however, due to an unexpected cold front, it further weakened the typhoon. In fact, here in Manila, other than the cold weather and some rains, we hardly felt the typhoon. There is no denying that it still did wreak some havoc, however, the damaged would have been much worst if Hagupit / Ruby didn’t weaken. In fact, it significantly weaken that from Super Typhoon it became a Typhoon, to a Storm and then Tropical Depression.
