Positive Omens Signifies Good Outlook in the New House!

Published Oktubre 5, 2016 by jptan2012

Recently, my family and I moved into a new house in a subdivision in Quezon City near some well-known universities. When we were looking into this new place they all depended on me to look at the Feng Shui and to ensure that the energies of the house are really good.

We chance upon this old house that has been abandoned for several years already, and the history is not quite good. However, when I look at the Feng Shui it seems to be good, my only concern is that of a slightly bad history. I know that being abandoned is not entirely bad, because we are renovating it anyway thus it will renew the energies and it will make the house appropriate for the current Feng Shui period. Also while the general Feng Shui of the house is good, the busy main road is on the left side of the house, and it is a heavy main road because that’s the only road going to the university and college near our new house. While technically we are not beside it, it is several houses a way and is outside the subdivision perimeter wall, this is not very good for the bigger aspect of Feng Shui of our house. However, my Guru Lama said we should transfer there because it is a good house for us.

So renovations started, but maybe it out of sadness for leaving our house of a little more than 30 years we were all a little giddy a week before we transferred. My siblings and I, especially my mother, are short tempered. This prompted me to call my Guru Lama and my Feng Shui teacher, and both of them assured me that it is a good house. Besides, the neighborhood that we have from our old house is already a lot different from what it used to be. We now have several factories, and warehouses in the neighborhood. There are a lot of informal settlers, and at night on our street alone there are a lot of ‘street boys and girls’ drinking beer. After a very long discussion and much thought, which actually lasted years, we decided to sell the house and get a new one. Our old house was sold through an agent and so we don’t know much about the new owners, but we decided to be transparent as to why we sold the house. We were informed that they would make it into smaller apartment so and rent it out. Some of the houses on our street has actually become an apartment complex already.

Anyway, going back to our new house, we ensured the Feng Shui are proper, and we followed all the necessary rituals before we moved in. But nevertheless, I silently have been asking for some omens that will inform us that we moved to a good house. And just before we started a ritual, three butterflies flew to the door of the house and went inside. That was a very positive omen.

But it doesn’t end there, after our first night, the following morning I was awaken by the melodious chirping of some birds, and when I look out of my window, there is a rare bird that I have never seen, it looks blue to my eyes. I wanted to take a photo but it flew away even before I was able to get my phone. Then on the other side of the house, my sister, her husband, were also awaken by the melodious chirping of the birds, and when they look out of their window, they said they saw six or seven Maya bird on the tree outside their window! What a wonderful omen! Regular readers should know by now that birds are wonderful omen of good news or good luck!

My mother decided to have her bedroom on the ground floor because she already finds it difficult to keep on climbing the stairs. Her bedroom has a small ‘rock garden’ only it has some plants also. There she found a tortoise (because it seems to live on land thus it should be a tortoise), and this is a very auspicious omen for all of us but specifically for my mom because it signifies stability and long life!

The omens we experienced worked for us, so the next time you moved to a new house or office do look for the omens!

Getting Support Through Feng Shui

Published Disyembre 1, 2012 by jptan2012

In my recent trip to San Diego, California, my best friend’s brother and sister-in-law generously volunteered to host me all throughout my stay there. I’m really glad that I took on their offer to stay in the house because I don’t have to eat hotel food, and to be honest, I saved up a lot of money because I don’t have to pay for hotel room and J, my best friend’s sister-in-law always make sure that I have food and I don’t go hungry. That only downside is that I gained some pounds and fat, a big thing for somebody who is trying to lose some weight. I really love J’s cooking, she has put a lot of American twist to the Filipino dishes.

It is in their house, one dinner, that I met W, a German – American guy who works in a bank in the States. During our dinner, conversation went into Feng Shui, and this is when W consulted me about his problem in the office.

According to W, he believes that he is fairly successful and that he has a good life. However, there’s something that has always bothered him, everything he does in the office, he always have to ‘…fight for it, fight with a capital F-I-G-H-T…’. W said he never seemed to have gotten his superiors’ support even though he has fairly proven himself and that his projects has mostly been successful. He once thought that it is a personality difference issue but even when one of his superior was replaced, he still faces the same problem with the new one. He gets along with his new superior on a personal level, but somehow it seems like he is unable to get the superior’s professional support.

P, my best friend’s brother, and J suggested to W to request me to Feng Shui his office. I told W if he believes in Feng Shui I’d be willing to do it for him and told him to bring me to his office. We then agreed on a date.

When W brought me to his office, I immediately saw the problem. He has a spacious office, but the office also has a glass wall, and when seated his back is facing the window/glass wall. This means that he doesn’t have any support coming from his back!!!

The problem is pretty obvious and quite simple to cure. Having an ‘empty space’ behind your work area will translate to a literal support-less atmosphere for you in your work. Like what W experienced, if there’s nothing behind you, you also won’t get any support, no matter how good you are in what you do. Sometimes, even if there’s a window behind you but there’s a building behind you, and it’s quite near your own building, then that building may act as a Feng Shui support. In the case of W, there’s no tall building behind him that can act as a Feng Shui support.3 Peak Mountain

Since he already has a small table behind him, I suggested that he put a Feng Shui 3-Peak Mountain behind him. Normally, what I would suggest is to put a painting of a mountain, however, since it’s a glass wall that also serves as a window, it’s impossible to hang a painting here, thus a Feng Shui Three-Peak Mountain will do. When it comes to effectivity, they’re both quite effective. It’s just that a Feng Shui 3-Peak Mountain might look a little out-of-place in his office.

Some 3-Peak Mountain has the Three Celestial Guardians. This works quite well as well.

I think, the Feng Shui 3-Peak Mountain is the solution to his problem, but I also suggested for him to wear a Ruyi pendant or carry it as a keychain to give him more authority.

It’s been about 2 months since I suggested the cure and W emailed me to say that he can now feel the significant change in the way his superiors look at his projects or proposals. They now give him their support. A colleague also commented that there is some change in W, according to W, the colleague said that he now seems more confident and authoritative. I’m guessing it’s because of the Ruyi pendant he started wearing.

I just want to give some guidelines about having a mountain and choosing a mountain picture to get support.

This is an ideal painting of a mountain that you can use for Feng Shui.

This is an ideal painting of a mountain that you can use for Feng Shui.

  1. Never put the mountain in front of you. It will be confronting the mountain, thus it will create your downfall.
  2. Make the painting or picture of the mountain big enough to make it noticeable but not so big that it overcomes you.
  3. A good mountain picture is something that doesn’t have a very sharp peak or sharp ridges.

Remember, a mountain behind you will give you solid support in your work and career!

Feng Shui Tips for the Work Place (2)

Published Abril 29, 2012 by jptan2012

Yesterday, I talked about the different FENG SHUI TIPS FOR THE WORK PLACE. Today, I’m writing about more Feng Shui tips for the work place. But before anything else, allow to me reply here regarding a question that was emailed to me by reader.

D emailed and shared that her table is directly against the wall, and she is literally facing the wall. She’s asking whether this is ok. This is also actually bad and while a wall behind you signifies support, a wall that is directly in front of you signifies problem. But the remedy for this is quite simple. All you have to do is put a picture or painting of a scenery, as long as it’s not of a mountain.

While my post yesterday focused on what you should avoid, today I’ll focus more on what you need to have to help ensure a smooth working environment.

AN IMAGE OF A ROOSTER. Readers of this blog knows that a rooster with a fan will help ensure that there’s no third party involvement in a relationship. However, a plain rooster is one of the essential charms that a working person needs. This is to prevent any politicking or rumors about you from circulating your co-workers. You can either place this on your table or wear it as a pendant.

SIX CRYSTAL Ball. Again readers of this blog knows that six pieces of crystal ball or crystal spheres will help ensure harmony at home. Having this is the office is also a very effective tool to ensure harmony in the office. If your boss doesn’t believe in Feng Shui but you have your own table, you can just place a smaller version of this on your table.

THE RED PHOENIX ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF YOUR OFFICE OR TABLE. Birds bring in good fortune and a Phoenix is a mythical bird. Also a Phoenix represents fire that makes a Phoenix a firebird. The South is empowered by fire and putting a Red Phoenix will help enhance your career luck and help you be recognize. But more than that it will also help block whatever bad luck that may come your way and create new opportunities for you.

FLOWERS. Put some colorful flowers on your table. While fresh flowers are preferred, a picture of a flower will also do. However, never use a flower made of plastic, and if you use fresh flowers make sure that you don’t wait for it to wilt before replacing them. Flowers will help ensure that you don’t absorb too much negative energy and stress.

DRAGON TORTOISE. A Dragon Tortoise is a combination of the two of the 4 guardian or Feng Shui animals (Dragon, Tortoise, Tiger, and Phoenix); furthermore the Dragon Tortoise is a combination of a celestial animal and a real animal. Having a Dragon Tortoise will not only give you support but also it will also give you a competitive advantage. A Dragon Tortoise is also a very powerful tool of protection if you’re not sure whether your working area has good or bad Feng Shui. The best place to put a Dragon Tortoise is behind you, however, putting it on your table will also work as well. You can also wear it as a pendant or as a bracelet.

VICTORY BANNER. I have previously written about the Victory Banner. Please do read about it. I just would like to say that the Victory Banner is one of the most powerful tools that one can use to ensure that most, if not all, of your endeavors or projects becomes a success. I have personally utilized the Victory Banner with all my big projects. You can place an image of the Victory Banner on your table or wear it as a pendant. This is the reason why I have included the Victory Banner in the special pendant that I designed, the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

Myth Buster 5: A Tortoise or Turtle Slows Down Career, Business, Wealth, and Personal Growth

Published Pebrero 25, 2012 by jptan2012

I often here people say that having a turtle as a pet or having its image in the home or office is bad. In fact, I once saw a mom scolding her son for buying a turtle for a pet without asking her permission. Heard her tell her son that having a turtle in the house is bad.

This is one of the greatest and most common misconceptions. A turtle or tortoise is considered by a lot of people as bad because it is slow and timid. However, the truth is a turtle or tortoise is one of the most powerful Feng Shui protection and enhancer one can have.

For Feng Shui purposes, will just use the term tortoise, while a turtle and a tortoise has some biological differences with each other, they are actually have the same Feng Shui effects, so in Feng Shui a turtle and a tortoise is one and the same.

As mentioned a tortoise is one of the most powerful tool one can use both as a protector and enhancer. The tortoise is one of the Four Feng Shui Animals (some people call this as 4 Celestial Animals but only two of the animals in the 4 Feng Shui Animals are actually considered celestial) that should always be present or represented in any home or establishment.

The 4 Feng Shui animals are the Green Dragon, which is in the East, the Red Phoenix that should be present in the South, the White Tiger that is located in the West, and finally, the Black Tortoise, which is in the North. However, East-West-North-South here doesn’t exactly refer to the compass direction. In an actual Feng Shui setting, East is represented by the left side of the house, South is represented by the front side of the house, West is represented by the right side of the house, and North is represented by the back of the house.

For now we’ll focus on the Black Tortoise or simply Tortoise. A Tortoise symbolizes stability, strength, and support, does it always has to be put at the backside of the house. If your family needs financial stability, putting a tortoise at the back of the house will help you have the said stability. It is a great protection and energy-strengthening tool.

Placing a tortoise behind your workplace will also give you the career stability that you need. Furthermore, it gives you the energy support that all career people need, especially if you work in a highly competitive atmosphere.

One other function of a tortoise is for longevity. In this sense, it is better to put the tortoise in the actual compass north.

You need not get a real turtle or tortoise, in fact, unless you can really take care of them properly, it is better to simply get an image of a tortoise. I personally believe a tortoise made of metal or jade works best. Getting a real tortoise, and not being able to take care of them properly may cause more harm than good, specially, if they die because of neglect.
