Marital Problem Fixed, Financial Problem Solved with the Unexpected Coming In of a Huge Amount of Money / Problem with Bank Loan Reversed: Two Personal Testimonies of Two Readers with Two Different Sources of Miracles! – And Why Do I Write About Miraculous Personal Testimonies?

Published Pebrero 1, 2017 by jptan2012

If there’s one thing that my experienced with Feng Shui and with my belief in (mainly) Buddhism and Taoism, is that MIRACLES DO HAPPEN! And it happens more often than we realize, it is just a matter of being able to recognize it.

I have so many miraculous stories to share, however, I simply don’t have enough time to write them all, on top of it, I will only share miracles that has been shared with me, either in whole or in part thru sms or email, this is so that I have something to show my readers the authenticity of the stories. Before, in order to protect the identity of my readers, I would not share their names and would only put initials. However, I realized I can share their first name and block out some of the important details to prove their identity, and lately if you notice those are the only personal testimonies that I share.

Anyway, today I would like to share with you not one but two personal testimonies of two different readers. I would have wanted to write about it separately but there are so much more things to write about, and truth be told I don’t think you will be happy if I simply write about miraculous personal testimonies of my readers.

But we all have a lesson to learn from these personal testimonies. It is not simply about the Vajrapani Ruel(1), or the Illness Suppression Amulet(1), or any amulet that I happened to write about, but it is about the experiences of readers who like a lot of you may be going through some problems in life. The problems may be personal that has something to do with relationships like your family or your longing for a partner in life. It can be about your personal growth, it can be about your career. It can be about money or the lack of it. What you are going through right now may be unique, but at the bottom of it, the root is basically the same for most people, and so from their stories we all learn something. And most of all, we are given hope that there is something else that we can do.

Such is the case of Grace. I met Grace because of her sister Mercy who is reader and a believer of Feng Shui. According to Mercy her life while she can still hope for something better is actually fine, and when I wrote about the Traditional Sutra Amulets (1)(Diamond Sutra and The Sutra On the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva) she just felt an affinity with it. Something seems to tell her that she should get it, even though technically speaking the Traditional Sutra Amulet(2) (TSA) is actually a Buddhist religious item and not a Feng Shui item and Mercy is a Catholic. Furthermore, she felt that she should also get one for her sister, Grace, who is actually going through a bad patch in her life.

According to Mercy, her sister Grace got separated from her husband about a year ago, and while Grace and her husband felt that they still love each other, the meddling of the in – laws (mostly the parents of Grace’s husband’s parents) is making things difficult. Grace’s husband is the only son. On top of that, Grace’s business is having some financial problems; she is in danger of losing her business, something that she has strived to build for more than ten years now.

sutra-amulets

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

Mercy decided to get 2 copies of the TSA, she’ll give one copy to Grace. When I met Mercy, Grace tagged along. She obviously wasn’t a believer and it became apparent when she repeatedly questioned me as to how do the TSA’s work and why are they so pricey. I patiently answered all her questions and told her that technically speaking they are not paying for the TSA, which she calls book amulet, but rather the money goes to either feeding of the monks or images of the Buddha or Bodhisattva. I clearly remembered that she said well hope that her sister is shelling out for would not go to ‘statues’ but rather to the feeding of monks or ‘better yet to hungry even if they are not from the temple’. During our conversation, she subtly but repeatedly discouraged Mercy to get all TSAs, both THE DIAMOND SUTRA and THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA.

I met them last December, I think it was in the first week of December, and I didn’t hear from them again, not until a few days ago when Grace sent me a message. Apparently, she the non – believe experienced a wonderful miracle, which she attributes to the Traditional Sutra Amulet. Mercy clarified that while she hasn’t had a great miracle she feels that everything seems to be going smoother now.

Translation for first Filipino Sentence: I DIDN’T DO ANYTHING ELSE… Translation of the Second & Third Filipino Sentence: Maybe you noticed that I was bugging you with all those question because I really don’t believe in Feng Shui. But now I’m a believer.

Going back to Grace. When I talked to her on the phone she said that maybe her first miracle was when she and her husband decided to patch things up last Christmas, and they went back to living together again this January. She said at that time she just ignored it and thought maybe it was really just their love that brought them together (and I sort of agree with her, it really is there love that brought them back together). But then a second miracle happened.

image3

She has a business that should have been doing really well, however, her biggest competitions are the bigger companies that has bigger financial capital thus being able to lower their prices because they can buy things by the bulk and get the items lower and in turn they can pass it on to the consumers at the lower price also. In order to be able to compete with them and in order to survive she needs a big boost on her finances. Her husband’s business while stable is not the liquid to be able to help her, and while her family tried to help, she knows that what they can afford to give her is not enough to help ensure that she will survive the big competitors. At that time that she was given the TSA she was already contemplating shifting to another smaller business or closing it down.

When she and her husband got back together, her husband had a heart – to – heart and man – to – man talk with his father, Grace’s father – in – law. He told him that their meddling with his family is the cause of their marital problem. He also told them the truth that for years, they have treated Grace unfairly, especially his mother who has been quite harsh and critical of whatever Grace do. Surprisingly, the father accepted his mistake and told his son that he will talk to his wife also. At that time Grace’s husband also mentioned the problem of Grace’s business.

image2

According to Grace that she initially doesn’t believe in the Traditional Sutra Amulet (which she call Book Amulet) but because it was pricey she decided to simply follow my instruction and decided to ‘dump’ it behind the images of her Catholic saints.

After getting back together, Grace’s father – in – law paid them a visit. Her mother – in – law didn’t go with him because she is feeling sour that she was partly ‘blamed’ for what happened to Grace and her husband. But Grace’s father – in – law apologized for how they treated Grace and he also offered to finance the expansion of Grace’s business to make it more competitive!!! Of course, Grace initially said no. But the father – in – law actually said that he would take offense if Grace refuses to accept the money. Best of all when Grace had her lawyer come up with an agreement stating as to when she will pay the ‘loan’ the father – in – law tore it up and told her to pay only when able, and that he will consider it as a payment if Grace will cook for them once a week. Grace said this is funny because they used to criticize, especially the mother – in – law, Grace’s cooking. But Grace said she would be more than happy to do that. What is nice here is that Grace never harbored any ill – feeling towards her in – laws because she understands that they felt like she ‘stole’ their son from them.

Grace considers this as a miracle because of the following:

  1. Although a lot of the ‘bullying’ came from her mother – in – law, her father – in – law is a traditional Chinese patriarch and will never humble himself for the younger generation.
  2. The father – in – law believes that Grace shouldn’t be working, much less having her own business. He feels that she should just help her husband in his business and their family business.
  3. His father – in – law whose money is all hard – earned was never ‘generous’ with money.

Before we ended our conversation, Grace said maybe her mother – in – law would be a future miracle.

Similarly, another reader also shared another miracle. Evelyn is a mother of 4 children and is a wife of an Overseas Filipino Worker. I have met Evelyn once and I simply love the ‘energy’ of kindness and love that she exudes.

Evelyn’s eldest child, his son, lives in Australia. I believe he is doing quite well in Australia. And he recently decided to get his very own home. He applied for a bank loan, but even before he got the approval of his bank loan he decided to pay give the non – refundable down payment to the said house. I believe that the down was a substantial amount.

Then comes the bad news from the bank. It seems like there seems to be a minor technicality and he might not get the loan. This is not an option because he already made a down and it is non – refundable.

Evelyn contacted me to ask for help in terms of what mantras to chant to help his son get the loan from the bank. I gave her the mantras. And he waiting started. I suppose it’s an excruciating, heart – pounding wait for them. But in the end the good news is that he got the loan!

Evelyn absolutely believes that they got it because of the power of the mantras. This is such a simple but profound miracle only because Evelyn’s son savings and better future is at stake her.

Two different miracles, two different channel (one is an amulet and the other one is the chanting of mantras)! Why did I decide to write these two miracles in one article?

This is to show that it’s not all about amulets. Mantras will also work as well, and it works best if you have faith and you sincerely do it and pouring in some love will make it more powerful.

We cannot deny that amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel(2), the Traditional Sutra Amulet(3), the Illness Suppression Amulet(2), etc. are an essential part of Buddhism, Taoism, and Feng Shui. We cannot deny that they work. We cannot deny that sometimes it is essential to have them. We cannot deny that things may work faster to our favor if we have them. But we also cannot deny and has to acknowledge that even without amulets we can still get the things that we aspire for. That’s what the mantras are for. Or that’s why we have the power of the prayers as easy as that!

But remember, whether it is thru amulets, mantras, or prayers, that miracles sometimes doesn’t come in a way we want it to be, or in a way we expect it to be. As I always say we should expect miracles, but do not dictate it!

Recite – A – Sutra (9): A Sutra Called Avatamsaka Sutra and Powerful Amulet Called Avatamsaka Amulet that Dispels Off the Hindrances in Our Life’s Luck!

Published Enero 27, 2017 by jptan2012

Life’s luck is such a curious thing. It shows that we are all connected to one another, sometimes our Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart) indicates that we are extremely lucky, however, due to our relationships with some people or maybe due to the bad Feng Shui of our house or office we experience a lot of negative things, or maybe these luck that is set for us becomes unattainable.

This is actually more common that we realize. In fact, a lot of the problems that my readers consult me are problems that sometimes are caused by people around them or by ancestors. Or maybe these are problems caused by circumstances that affect their loved ones.

Let me try to explain it further. What I want to say is that sometimes we are strictly speaking lucky, but there are hindrances to our luck because of the luck experienced by the people around us or people we deal with. This is because our luck whether we like it or not is affected by other people, by the people who is around us.

For example, a husband and wife, the luck of the husband may be very good but the wife has extreme bad luck. The business of the husband may be doing really well, but let’s just say the wife was affected with the illness star and actually got terribly sick. Because of this the husband will not experience his full luck potential, he will be pulled down by his wife’s luck. On the other hand, the wife even though suffering from an illness will not also experienced her full bad luck potential, she will be pulled up by her husband’s luck. It may be her chart indicates that she will have to undergo a serious operation, but because the husband’s business is doing well, he will be able to get her the best doctors and medicines that may find another cure. On the other hand, the husband’s business may be doing well, but because of his wife’s bad luck, he won’t be able to save the money that he wants to save.

That’s just how life is, and I believe this is the case because whether we want it or not, this serves as a lesson that we are all connected to one another and that we should look out for one another.

Let me give you another example. In career or corporate world a person may be enjoying the luck of advancement by way of promotion or monetary incentive. But in a department, you seldom work on your own, you will have to have people work under you, above you or you have to work with colleagues. However, one colleague fell ill, then you would have to strive to work harder. Again, you are somewhat pulled down, but then because you have that luck you might have pulled it off and he might have gotten some of the credits of what you did.

Again, this is not being unfair or I don’t want you to think that we should start checking on who has bad luck or good luck. This is a lesson that we have to learn. Bad luck and good luck becomes all good luck if we strive to put in positive energies by way of creating harmony.

What we have to be careful of is when it seems that negative energies because of the bad luck of the people around us seems to completely tip the scale to bad luck. This happens when our luck is just average, or when we are not strong enough to put in positive energies by way creating harmony. Or this may happen when the bad luck energies are coming from people who are not close enough to us for us to influence their situation. This is pretty common amongst people in business. Sometimes the people we deal with in business has so much bad luck that we are affected because, well, because we deal business with them.

On a personal level this imbalanced tipping of the scale favoring the bad luck happens when in the family the majority has bad luck, and you are the only one who enjoys good luck. One against the others doesn’t necessarily mean that you become the loser and all becomes negative, if you are strong enough to balance the scale it will happen.

Sometimes the scale also becomes imbalanced because of bad Feng Shui in the house or office. Or sometimes simply because of the how our elements from our Bazi Chart reacts with the elements of year’s Bazi Chart. A classic example of this is how 56 – year – old Ox – born people have a low or no financial luck this 2017 because of how their elements reacted to the year’s elements.

When the scale becomes imbalanced and becomes too negative it is extremely helpful for us to seek the help of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. One very powerful way to do this is to tap the power of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas by reciting one of the most powerful but quite long Buddhist sutra called Avatamsaka Sutra (also called as Flower Garland Sutra or Flower Adornment Sutra).

This sutra is one of the longest Buddhist Sutras and is also one of the most highly revered. In fact it is so long that parts of it has been taken out and made into a separate sutra.

But before we move forward, maybe you’d be asking as to what is Avatamsaka Sutra. Avatamsaka is actually a Bodhisattva.

He is not a very popular Bodhisattva these days because of the lack of reading materials about him. But according to my Guru Lama who introduced me to Bodhisattva Avatamsaka, he is one of the Bodhisattvas that were talked about by Sakyamuni (Shakyamuni) Buddha in his more advanced sutras and was highly extolled by the Buddha.

Going back to the Sutra.tibetan

According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche and my Guru Lama reciting this sutra will certainly take away all the hindrances to one’s growth and one’s luck be it personal, wealth, financial, love, or family.

The Traditional Sutra Amulet format of the Avatamsaka Sutra is so rare and the few that exists is so big and heavy. However, just in time for the Chinese New Year, my Guru Lama was able to acquire a few pieces of the chapter of the Avatamsaka Sutra that is about Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon), having this Traditional Sutra Amulet will help dispel all the blockage of your good luck and pave away for good luck. My Guru Lama is making 5 pieces of this available here in the Philippines. The good news is that even without understanding it, one can recite it in Chinese because he made sure that there is a Pin Yin beside the Chinese words, for people who want to recite it. Again reciting it is better than simply having a copy. Although having a copy alone will already work wonders.

avatamsaka-sutra

One of 5 copies of the Avatamsaka Sutra (Kuan Yin Bodhisattva Chapter) that’s available here in the Philippines.

Furthermore, my Guru Lama has also acquired some Avatamsaka Amulet made by a Tibetan Yogi Monk (a monk that went through a special disciplinary training akin to yoga but much more deeper and stricter). According to my Guru Lama wearing the Avatamsaka Amulet will definitely take away all the hindrances to all forms of bad luck and at the same time provide us with good luck and help us achieve our full potential. However, I’m unable to provide photo of the Avatamsaka Amulet because according to my Guru Lama this is an amulet that one cannot show to somebody. When you have this, you must keep it inside your shirt. I asked Guru Lama as to why is this the case. All he said is that displaying the said amulet might lose its effectivity if people get attracted to it. He is not sure why this is the case, but this is what they observed. To briefly describe the said amulet, it comes in two forms, one is made of wood with glass, and the other one is made of metal. The two forms are basically the same with a slight variation in the ingredients and material. When one requests for it, one will get it covered in a small pouch and my Guru Lama said the Tibetan Yogi Monk who made it said that the one who requests will attract what he needs.

You don’t have to finish it in one sitting, and you really can’t, what I do is read a chapter a day.

2017 Year of the Fire Rooster Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars Formula, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: A Balance Chart But A Conflicting Year (Part 1)

Published Disyembre 21, 2016 by jptan2012

A lot of people have been asking me as to why I haven’t posted anything for more than a week. That is because I ran of banked stories to post because of hectic November and December and also I have to do the Feng Shui analysis for 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster. This takes a lot of time for me to compute and analyze.

In the previous years, I would write my forecast in January so that it doesn’t interfere with the traditionally busy month of December. I do this because I don’t a pool of people analyzing the year’s Feng Shui for me, instead, I have to this on my own, do the computation myself then after that do the analysis. Thus it is easier to do it in January. Furthermore, I want to disabuse the belief that the energies of the year starts in January, because it starts either every February 4 of the year or when Chinese New Year comes in.

However, last year I broke this tradition because the energies of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey came early. This year, the Year of the Fire (Intense) Rooster is no different. It’s energies can already be felt by January 4, 2016 and it will already mix the with tail end of the annual energies of 2016 and the monthly energy of the last month of the lunar calendar.

2017-bazi

Image lifted from Google Images.

I write this post with a little trepidation. 2017’s Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart is quite balance, which is totally different from last year’s chart, and that is a good news. However, amongst the 4 pillars of the chart, only one pillar has a harmonious relationship, the rest are actually destructive pillars. This is not totally surprising because a year is rarely, in fact almost never totally good or totally bad. But what is a cause for concern for me is that the chart indicates a calamitous or cataclysmic event in the 3rd quarter of the year. This can be a worldwide occurrence or it can be patches of smaller (per country) cataclysmic event that will have a worldwide impact. Before I move on to discussing these things in detail, I would like to make clear again, like every year, that this forecast is base on analysis of the Paht Chee Chart / Bazi Chart of the year, together with the Flying Stars and the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. I’m not psychic, this doesn’t come from channeling an energy to make a prediction, rather I compute the bazi chart and make an analysis about it.

Now the question is how accurate are the forecast, and note that I use the word forecast and not prediction, well, as pointed out by readers I have a high batting average and I say this with extreme humility. To this day, it is only this blog who has brazenly written about the Yolanda tragedy (Typhoon Haiyan) that struck Central Visayas before it happened and not in hindsight. While I was not able to pinpoint that it will be in Leyte, I clearly pointed out that a natural calamity followed by a shortage of food will struck somewhere in Visayas in the Philippines. This was forecasted and a reader remembered and pointed it out. This was followed by the extreme heat weather forecast, then the earthquake in Nepal, and lastly by the forecast of the presidential elections in the Philippines and the financial instability that is happening now. And so I say that I write this post with a little trepidation because of some things that the chart shows may happen this year.

Anyway, I think I’m getting ahead of myself. Now allow me to share with you the year’s Bazi / Paht Chee.

For those of you who are familiar with the Bazi / Paht Chee you will notice that the first good news that I can share with you is that all five elements, namely wood, metal, water, fire, and earth made an appearance in the chart. This is good because this indicates that the year is a balance year. It’s been quite some time since we had a balance year and as you may remember, 2016 was one of the worst imbalanced years with the total absence of the fire element. Superficially speaking this 2017 should be a harmonious year, and since all elements are present, it also indicates that there should be a lot of resources available and that there should be stability. But if you notice I used the word ‘superficially’ because the four pillars indicates, as already mentioned earlier, that it is conflicting or in disharmonious state. That is true for the 3 pillars out of the 4 pillars. Furthermore, the ruling Chinese Zodiac, which is the Rooster is also afflicted with the #3 Flying Star or Argument Star, so this sort of negates that harmonious state of the presence of all the five elements in the Bazi Chart. More on about the #3 Flying Star affliction later.

Before I discuss the implications of each pillar. I would like to share with you first some of the luck controlled by each of the element.

fireThis year Wealth Luck is controlled by the Fire element. So those of you who have a high fire element in there Bazi or Paht Chee is somehow assured of wealth or financial luck coming your way. This means that it would be easier for you to get wealth luck compared to other people. To enhance this, one can simply wear more red or wear a red gemstone. Putting light in your front door is also a very powerful way of enhancing this energy; just make sure your front door is not in the North. Furthermore, one can carry a lighter and light the lighter several times a day.

earthPower Luck is controlled by the Earth Element, and this year it is quite important to have power because while it has determined a lot of things for a person, this year that energy will be doubled. Also in the 3rd and 4th quarter of the year, one has to have power for one to have access to wealth luck. For those whose Bazi / Paht Chee has a very high earth element is assured already of being a little bit more powerful than most people. The Earth element is one of the most important element this year, because it controls a lot of things. To enhance this energy do wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (also called Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) and one should wear more gems or semi – precious stones. Wearing citrine or topaz is one of the best stone to wear this year.

waterFriendship Luck is controlled by the Water Element. This year the water element is quite high so it indicates that instead of friendship and support that energy is turn into competitiveness. It will not be surprising if friends back stabbed friends to get more of a winning advantage, thus this brings us back to the importance of having more power. Let me clarify here that when I say power this doesn’t refer only to actual power that comes with a position, but rather also more subtle power that comes from within. Furthermore, to deflect the negative effect of this energy, one will do well to wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet(1) or a Vajrapani Ruel(1). Normally, we can suggest a harmony charm or cure, but for this year a harmony charm will not have much effect for the effects of this energy.

metalResources Luck is controlled by the Metal Element. If you notice, the suggestion is to wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva made of gold. Why? Because one will also need the energy of a metal to have resources, which is quite an important aspect of having power. Resources here refer not only to the physical and tangible resources, but also life chi or inner chi resources.

woodIntellectual Luck is controlled by the Wood Element. There is only one wood in the chart and this means that intellect doesn’t really play much of a factor in the wielding of power, and this is quite scary, because it shows that a lot of people especially those who are in power and who are near a powerful person will not use much of their brains. However, while this is weak, it also presents an opportunity for us to tap into the energies of the wood element for us to have an upper hand. Wearing a citrine this year will already enhance that energy but if one can have a petrified wood or be surrounded by trees or plants or wear wood jewelries, then one can have access to more Intellectual Luck. Who knows this might make a lot of differences. In fact, I personally think more intellect will make a lot of difference.

Looking at the Bazi Chart, first we are reassured that it indicates that this year will be dominated by what I would call ‘action energy’. Meaning more people will be inclined to see and act on positive things, on top of that, more people will tend to be more cooperative. Politically speaking this may be a good thing because people will tend to look for more positive things from the government.

However, we all see that at the first pillar of the Bazi /Paht Chee, which is one of the more important pillar in the chart and rules the first quarter of the year, the Heavenly Stem Yin Fire is destroying the Yin Metal element of the Rooster. This indicates that the start of the year may be a little challenging in terms of personal goals and also for wealth or financial aspect. Somehow we are able to see that start of this challenges already, especially in the Philippines when the peso continues to be weak even with the influx of remittances from the Overseas Filipino Workers sector coming in. The BSP Governor (BSP stands of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas or in English Central Bank of the Philippines) has also express apprehension with how the peso is doing in the international market. Other countries might also experience the same financial crisis because this is not true only to the Philippines. However, this is where the nation’s leader comes in, depending on how they manage the country, and handle the energies of the year, this may still be reversible or at the very least tempered.

On a personal level, the start of the year will also make most people (not all) that things are not taking off the way they want it to be. It will be more difficult and people might encounter a lot of problems along the way. To help counteract these negative energies of the first quarter, which will have a lasting effect on the rest of the year, one will do well to wear a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel(2) or a Kalachakra pendant made of gold or jade.

I’ll jump to the hour pillar first because this is another disharmonious pillar. This pillar rules the last quarter of the year. In this pillar you’ll see that the Yang Earth is destroying the Yang Water element of the sign of the Rat. This indicates a very strong instability for corporate worlds and most especially politically. Furthermore, it shows that the last quarter of the year may be a little turbulent; this is both for financial and personal life. Most Chinese Zodiac Animal signs are affected, especially those whose sign has an intrinsic elements of Earth, Wood, Water, and Fire. The only one that was spared is those whose intrinsic element is Metal. To counter this, it is advisable for one to wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa). It is also better if this is worn as gold for you to have more of the metal energy that one needs. However, this is something that you don’t just wear on the last quarter, you need to store up on the energy bestowed by wearing the image Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha (Bodhisattva Earth Store), so it is advisable to wear this as early as January of 2017.

From my personal collection. A rare Red Amber Ksitigarbha. If wearing it as a pendant, I prefer the image with the five leave crown. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to get a Ksitigarbha pendant unless you’re from Malaysia, Hong Kong, or Singapore. FOR THIS YEAR IT IS IMPORTANT TO WEAR THE IMAGE OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA IN GOLD.

Let us now examine the 3rd Pillar of the Paht Chee, which is the Day Pillar, a pillar that rules the third quarter of the year. For those of you who are familiar with the relationships of the elements, you’ll see right away that this is another disharmonious pillar, but this time it is the earthly branch Yang Earth element of the Dog that destroys the Yang Water of the Heavenly Stem. This indicates that the third quarter is going to be ruled by some strong power. This may be good or bad depending on who has the power, and thus superficially speaking it depends on who the leader is. However, we mentioned earlier that there is what I call ‘action energy’ or people might tend to be more cooperative. Taking that into consideration there might be a subtler power but might prove to be more effective in the long run. But what is scary here whether who has the power whether good or bad this might still have some destructive effect. A possibility of a significant calamity is also possible this 3rd quarter. Again, for this it would do well to tap on the energy of Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa (Earth Store Bodhisattva), and it will do well for one to have the Vajrapani Ruel(3) or a gold or jade Kalachakra pendant.

Let us now examine the 2nd Pillar, which is the Month Pillar and has significant effects on the 2nd quarter of the year. Putting this last in the analysis of the pillars only because this one brings good news. And it is important to be forewarned about the negative first before we concentrate on enhancing the good. The 2nd Pillar is one pillar that has a harmonious relationship. How does this translate to us? It means that the 2nd quarter of the year may be the best time of the year; especially those who want their project to take off.

This year the hidden stem also produced a lot of special stars; some of them are good some are bad. First, there is the Peach Blossom Star, which is depending on your current situation may be either good or bad. This star may help bring lovers and life long partners into your life. However, this also brings in third party problems for those who are already married or attached. Especially affected to the negative effects of this star are those couple that sleeps on their bad directions. Unfortunately, this is something that I cannot discuss here because this varies from one person to another.

The hidden stem also produced the Mentor Star, which means some of us can tap into the power of influential people or those elder either in years or experience to help achieve our goals. This also means that when you tap into the power of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities, Goddess, or Taoist Gods you can get more help. To activate this star, it will do well to wear an image of a Buddha or a Bodhisattva. Some of my favorites for this star are the image of Buddha Sakyamuni (Buddha Shakyamuni), Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara(1) (also called Kuan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon) or Bodhisattva Sangharama (also called Qie Lan Sheng Chong Pu Sa, Qie Lan Pu Sa, or popularly known as Kuan Kong which is also spelled as Guan Gong). This year if you are wearing an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha) it also serves as tapping into the power of the Mentor Star.

Those people born under the year of the Dragon because they have the Heavenly Protector Star! This is one of the most auspicious stars produced by the hidden stem of the year. Having this star helps you get protected from the negative energies of the year. To help further strengthen this star it is highly advisable for one to wear a very powerful amulet or an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva.

Those are some of the good stars produced by the hidden stem of the year’s Paht Chee Chart or Bazi Chart. However, there is one very strong negative star that was also produced by the hidden stem of the year’s Bazi /Paht Chee chart. This is the Malevolent Star or what others call Aggressive Star. This star helps strengthen the negative aspects of power. So wrong things might become more pervasive. Everybody is affected but people born under the year of the Rat are most affected. This also indicated a more competitive financial scenario and political scenario. Furthermore, this also shows that businesses will become more ruthless, all these has a negative connotations is each one of us. To help insulate and protect yourself from this star, it is advisable for you to have a very powerful amulet or symbol like the Vajrapani Ruel(4) or a gold Kalachakra pendant. Having the Traditional Sutra Amulets like The Diamond Sutra or The Sutra On The Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva in your home or office will also help insulate you from the negative effects of this hidden star.

On the Part 2 of this post, I will discuss what’s in store for 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster base on the Flying Stars Formula and 24 Mountain Stars Formula.

Dogs Barking or Howling At Walls: What It Means and How to Deal With It?

Published Nobyembre 30, 2016 by jptan2012

dogs-barkingRegular readers of this blog knows that I’m a firm believer of how a pet dog and help increase your good chi and bring in good luck, as long as one takes care of them properly and truly loves them.

I have a friend who called me up the other day, apparently his dogs are barking at his ‘wall’. Sometimes they howl. They seem to be seeing something that he is not seeing and he finds it creepy.

Dogs are naturally more sensitive in seeing or feeling unseen beings, and they may be seeing entities that we are not seeing. The manifestation usually comes in the form of them barking at the wall or at an empty space and they seem to be seeing something which we don’t see. Or it could be a howling. Sometimes they can be chasing something or seemingly being chased by something. Or they can be spooked and hide or seemingly growling at something. If these things happen, chances are they are seeing an entity or at the very least be feeling an entity.

When these things happen, first recognize the attitude of the dog. If they seems happy or relax chances are they’re seeing something of a positive or neutral entity. But if they seem spook or angry this is an indication that it is a negative entity. This is the case of my friend’s dogs.

If it’s a positive or neutral entity, just ignore them and they will soon go away. But if it’s a negative entity, it will be good if you as an expert to exorcise or like in the case of my friend, he got a Vajrapani Ruel and a Traditional Sutra Amulet (THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA) and a day after that aggressive barking at the ‘walls’ cease.

I would like to caution though that howling doesn’t really mean the presence of negative entities, some dogs are really just howlers like the Alaskan Malamute and Siberian Husky. Or sometimes they might be hearing a sound, because they have sensitive ears, that makes them howl. Like my dog back when we were still in our old house, we can tell if the Selecta ice cream man is about to pass by even before we hear his distinct music, because our dogs will already howl, and they won’ stop until the Selecta ice cream man pass by.

Chant – A – Mantra 8: Creating An Auric Amulet (1000 Days of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Mantra for a Good Prosperous Life and Ultimate Protection)

Published Nobyembre 29, 2016 by jptan2012

One of the most common question people ask me is whether we all really need an amulet. What if we don’t have one does that mean success and luck and protection is going to be more elusive?

The answer to this is that amulets are simply but tools for us to continuously tap into the energies or blessings or power of the Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity to which an amulet is made from. And it is an effective means of tapping into said power. In fact, His Holiness the  Dalai Lama when escaping the Chinese oppression and flee Tibet to India is said to have carried a powerful amulet and a Kalachakra with him. The current and acknowledged 17th Karmapa is said to have a Vajrapani Ruel with him, also another Tibetan Monk who was sent to hard labor and was considered as a political prisoner was also believed to have been given a Vajrapani Ruel to pave the way for his release. You can read the last two stories in a post entitled – VAJRAPANI RUEL STORIES: THE 17TH KARMAPA’S RELATIVELY EASY ESCAPE; THE MIRACULOUS RELEASE OF A TIBETAN MONK FROM CHINESE PRISON AND LABOR CAMP; AND THE WEALTH LUCK BESTOWED UPON THE PRODIGAL SON. So we cannot deny the importance and relevance of carrying or wearing an amulet. However, the truth is the best amulets are those that are aurically created. Something that is not physically tangible but is strong enough to give us physical and psychically protect us and also gives us some of our heart’s wishes.

KsitigarbhaThere are many ways to ‘make’ such an amulet, however, it takes times and some are quite difficult to create and requires a very strong inner chi and deep knowledge of the spiritual esoteric practices or rituals.

Nevertheless, on THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA (Earth Store Bodhisattva is also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) Shakyamuni Buddha (also spelled as Sakyamuni Buddha and also called as Historical Buddha) shared with us one way to make auric amulet. An amulet that is not physically tangible. It does take time to make an amulet but according to my Guru Lama it is one of the most powerful amulet one can have. In fact, according to my Guru Lama when done properly one can also experience an abundance of wealth and financial luck as well as happy life. He is not taking this simply base on the said sutra, but rather he has recommended this to a Singaporean vendor several years ago and who after doing this went to become a very successful and rich businessman.

How to make this auric amulet?

First, it will be easier to do this is you have an image of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha OR A copy of THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA. Light an incense and chant mantra NAMO DA YUAN DI ZHANG WANG PU SA 1000 times a day for 1000 days (which is a little more than 3 years). By doing this, Lord Brahma and Lord Shakra, will always protect you and no harm will come to you and your family, on top of that they will be channel of auspicious blessings that will come your way.

earth-store-bodhisattva-sutra-traditional

This is a copy of the traditional SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA that my Guru Lama sent me.

NOTE: It has to be the mantra NAMO DA YUAN DI ZHANG WANG PU SA and not the other forms of mantra for this ritual to be effective.

Note: Will write about Lord Brahma and Lord Shakra in future articles.

I know it’s quite long but technically speaking it is not long for something so powerful. According to my Guru Lama doing this will give you an auric amulet that may even be more powerful than the Vajrapani Ruel. And the Vajrapani Ruel is considered as one of the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, in fact, a lot of those who requested for it has shared their wonderful personal testimonies.

Remember this has to be done everyday; you miss a day you have to start all over again.

To avoid confusion, you can simply chant 10 full malas, which is equivalent to 1080 a day. My Guru Lama said chanting more than 1000 of the Earth Store Bodhisattva mantra is fine as long as it is not less than 1000 a day.

To know more about Ksitigarbha Bodhisatta / Earth Store Bodhisattva you read the post written about him entitled – Ksitigarbha Buddha is a Bodhisattva Who Vowed to Help Those Who Suffer in This World and In Hell.

Forecasted Financial Situation Is Already Happening and Some Suggestions On How To Deal With It!

Published Nobyembre 28, 2016 by jptan2012

Late last year when I wrote about my analysis of the Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart of 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey, one of the things I wrote is the big possibility of a financial crisis. In that particular article, what will precipitate the said crisis will happen either the first part or the middle part of the year, but that the crisis will start to happen either middle of the year or last part of the year. Last June, US$ 1.00 is approximately around Php 44.00, and now it is (as of writing) Php 49.95, the highest is more than 8 years, and the first time to steadily jump up after more than 10 years. In another post, which I have decided will not be shared again; I also insinuated the cost of this financial crisis, at least, for our country.

If you look at the trend, US $ to Php should have started going down already because of the OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker)remittances, but on the third week of November it still continues to rise. Hopefully, it will still go down on December given that the OFW remittances are coming in, but even if goes down, it seems that it will jump up again coming January. I’m sharing this because we all need to get ready for this. I haven’t checked the bazi chart for the year 2017, and will do so soon and share with you my analysis as soon as possible.

Having said that, I will like to clarify that this is not a political post, and so I refrain from making assumptions as to what is causing the continues decline of the Philippine peso, but this I will say while the middle class to upper class are not yet feeling the effect of this financial crisis, we should not be blind to the ones on the lower income bracket who has taken a hit already.

In the past 3 months, I came across two former VIP bodyguards who is now an Uber driver or applying to be a driver. Their concern is that a lot of foreign investors have left the country or have downsized, and of course, not so many foreign VIPs are in need of bodyguard. Another reader also emailed me. Her son apparently works as a call center agent, but several smaller call center agencies have close shop, they are smaller but each one still have about 300 call center agents, not to mention janitors, guards, and non – call canter agent employees.

I’m sharing this because it is important that each one of us prepare for this financial crisis, if indeed it will become a full-blown crisis and I’m not saying it will. Although, I forecasted it, like the Yolanda forecast, the Nepal earthquake forecast, this is something that I’m not proud of nor I’m happy that my forecast has been vindicated.

I’m sure each one of us can do something. We can start of by supporting the good that our government is doing but we should also rally against the things that we perceived are wrong. When I say rally, I mean we should let our voices be heard in a non – violent and non – confrontational manner. Let’s email the government, let’s share our thoughts, and let us be the change, the improvement that we so desire to see.

And of course, do not forget the power of prayers, of going to church or temple, of lighting candles and incense and dedicating its merits for the financial improvement of the country, let us chant -a – mantra or recite – a sutra.

On a personal level, we should start protecting ourselves. Save up, invest properly, carry a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel or now the traditional sutra amulet like THE DIAMOND SUTRA and / or THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA, these amulets doesn’t become available now for no reason, they always become available at the right time.
