Feng Shui Tips for Couples to Have A Harmonious Relationship!

Published Nobyembre 23, 2017 by jptan2012

One of the most common question I get from readers or friends who are married is how to have a more harmonious relationship. Apparently, in these trying times and globalization has made life a bit more stressful, and a lot of couple gets affected with this. One of its manifestation is couple seems to argue more often. Allow me to share some Feng Shui tips on how to make a relationship more harmonious thru Feng Shui. But before that, allow me to share here that I believe one of the key factors in maintaining a strong relationship with your partner is to have an open communication, to be understanding, be humble, but at the same time know your self-worth. Being humble without knowing your self-worth will just subject to abuse.

In Feng Shui one can have the following cures to help maintain a harmonious relationship:

  1. Have an image of an apple, preferably made of crystal, at the headboard of the couple’s bed. An apple is an Feng Shui symbol for harmony, having one that is beautiful and made of crystal will definitely help make the relationship better. I once recommended to a former officemate when I was still an employee. She was complaining that her husband is always hot tempered and they argue a lot. Told her to put a red apple (it has to be red) made of crystal on their headboard to ease the problem. She looked for one and followed my recommendation. She said that it worked and they seldom argue. In fact, when I accidentally bumped into the couple in a mall in Makati City, the wife introduced me to her husband and said, “He was the one who fixed our marriage by asking me to put a red apple crystal on our headboard!”Red Crystal Apple
  2. Make sure you both regularly wear your wedding ring. Wedding rings are not just symbols or signs that one is married, wearing your wedding rings brings in some harmonious energy. If you are wearing it and still constantly finds yourself to be arguing a lot, try to tie a red string and a yellow string on the ring. It should bring a fresh harmonious chi.
  3. Use the power of the DOUBLE HAPPINESS SYMBOL or SIGN. The double happiness symbol or sign is one of the most powerful Feng Shui charm or symbol that brings in happiness and harmony to couples, especially to those who are seeing that their relationship is starting to get sour. About a couple of years ago a lady contacted me to ask for help in saving their marriage. Apparently, the husband has started to live in another room in their house, and has broached the topic of moving out and filing for an annulment. She said that she believes that they both still love each other, but wanting to have child which has been elusive to them, and the meddling of their families, and also pressure from work has made them turn against each other. It was gradual but they just seem unable to reach out to each other. Told her to get herself and her husband a double happiness jewelry, and also clarified that it might be better if she’ll get something that is specifically designed for both of them. She agreed, and so I designed one for both of them, they both got a pendant. They now are one of the happiest couple I have ever seen. They now also have a son, which was conceived after they got a Vajrapani Ruel.Double happiness pendant.jpg
  4. Although not a Feng Shui charm, having a TRADITIONAL SUTRA AMULET (TSA), should also help a lot. More recently, a daughter requested for my help. Her parents are not quarreling but they seem cold with each other. She feels that her parent being married with each other for 30 years has simply made themselves grown tired of each other. She wants something to help rekindle their relationship. She said she used to feel that she and her siblings are the luckiest children in the world because they have such a loving parents, that is also obviously very in love with each other, and so seeing that her parents has gone cold with each other makes her really sad. Told her to get a TSA, she did and slowly she noticed that they seem to grow concern with one another again, until his father surprised her mother with a trip, just the two of them!!!

I hope that these simple recommendations will be helpful to anybody who finds their relationship in a bit of a turmoil.

USHNISHA SITATAPUTRA – A Protector Against All Danger, Better Known as The White Umbrella Goddess

Published Mayo 19, 2012 by jptan2012

Ushnisha Sitataputra, better known as the White Umbrella Goddess, is one of the female manifestations of Avalokitesvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. It should be noted that Ushnisha Sitataputra, although she has similar traits with Kuan Yin, is not Kuan Yin. Kuan Yin is literally Avalokitesvara as female Bodhisattva. To understand this better I suggest you read my earlier post entitled – UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN.

However, Ushnisha Sitataputra is a female manifestation of Avalokitesvara, the difference is Kuan Yin has retained all the exact character traits of Avalokitesvara, while a Ushnisha Sitataputra or The While Umbrella Goddess serves a slightly different purpose.

Ushnisha Sitataputra directly translates as the ‘The Victorious Goddess of White Parasol’, and she does signify victory over all harm and danger, especially those of supernatural causes. According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, reciting the mantra of Ushnisha Sitataputra will help illnesses, bring auspicious luck, prevent harm from happening, and drive away evil and negative energies. The Tibetan Buddhists regard Ushnisha Sitataputra or The White Umbrella Goddess as one of the most powerful deity.

The famous image of Ushnisha Sitataputra is the one where has a thousand face, thousand arms, and a thousand legs. Each of the face has three eyes, and she also has one eye in each of the palm of her hands and sole of her feet. This is to represent that she watches and protects all sentient beings. Her body as in her central faces glows in white, her right faces are yellow, her rear faces are red, and green is the color of her faces on her left. At the top of her head is another tier of blue faces. Her right hands hold the Dharma chakra, while her left hands hold arrows. She also has a white parasol on her left, which symbolizes the blessing of protection. This particular image of The White Umbrella Goddess can be likened to the Thousand-Hand Kuan Yin or Thousand Hand Avalokitesvara.

This is similar to the Thousand-Hand Kuan Yin we have at home.

Another image of Ushnisha Sitataputra or The White Umbrella Goddess is the simpler and can be likened to the White Tara.

In this subdued image of Ushnisha Sitataputra, she has 7 eyes, very much like the White Tara. Also white in color, she has one face with three eyes, two hands with one eye each on each palm, and 2 legs with one eye each on each sole. Her right hand is in the mudra of supreme generosity and also holds a Dharma chakra, while on her left she holds the famous White Parasol or White Umbrella of protection. However, in this version, the parasol is adorned with various jewel and ornaments.
