Never Put A Septic Tank On the Right Side of Your House!

Published Marso 30, 2017 by jptan2012

Regular readers of this blog would know by now that any water feature on the right side of the house or building is really bad, because the energy created by having any water feature on the right side of the house or building is to encourage disloyalty and betrayal. Whether is domestic, husband and wife, or professional, employer and employee relationship.

When we say water features we refer to anything that connotes water, be it fountain, a faucet, or even simply a pipe. This is also refers to whether it is something that we can see or not, like if it’s hidden under the floor or ground.

But one of the worst water features you can put on the right side of your house is a septic tank. This does not only hold water, but it holds dirty (very dirty) water. The effect will be much worse than disloyalty and betrayal. The main problem will be still disloyalty and betrayal, but it will be the worst kind of disloyalty or betrayal. It may even end up with violence or death cause by a crime or murder or homicide.

It may also cause loss of business because of internal problems, which will be most likely due to betrayal of trust.

The cure for this really depends on how big the septic tank is. But usually one needs a powerful amulet for this. Recently, a reader had to use 4 Vajrapani Ruels(1), has instructed by Guru Lama, only because the septic tank is quite big and more than that, when they excavated the ground for the septic tank they must accidentally unleashed and hurt some entities.

However, it is impolite to simply put the Vajrapani Ruel(2) on top of the septic tank, one will have to make a house, more like a pagoda or a dome shape stupa where one should place the Vajrapani Ruel(3).

Recite – A – Sutra (10): Blessings from Reciting “The Sutra of the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva”!

Published Marso 29, 2017 by jptan2012

Regular readers of this blog knows that I’m a great believe of reciting sutras because reciting sutras has the power to attract numerous blessings and offer strong protection to a person who recites it. In fact, simply having a copy of a sutra, especially if it’s the Traditional Sutra Amulet format, if one is unable to recite will give you financial blessings, peace, happiness, and protection. This blog has shared some of the personal testimonies of my readers who has requested for the Traditional Sutra Amulets (TSA).

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.

But today, in this post, allow me to share with you some of the wonderful blessings you may receive if you recite the SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA. These are the blessings especially mentioned in the sutra. But to understand it further, I have copy – pasted the commentary (short explanation) of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua of the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. This is to make the promise of the blessing a little more clearer.

Note: Earth Store Bodhisattva is also known or called as Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha and Di Zhang Pu Sa.

Here is the list of the blessings as stated in the sutra itself followed by commentary of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua:

First, they will be protected by gods and dragons. Gods, celestial dragons and celestial asuras will protect you because you know how to recite the Earth Store Sutra. Asuras in the heavens enjoy blessings but no authority. They swear to protect you. Gandharvas are music spirits before the Jade Emperor. They are also called “sniffing spirits”. Whenever the Jade Emperor lights up a particular incense, Gandharvas come. There are male gandharvas and female gandharvas. Male gandharvas wear a horn similar to chimeras on their heads. Once they get a whiff of this scent, they will dance and sing, so the celestial music rings in the heavens. Recite Earth Store Sutra and gandharvas will sing praises as they dance on air. Garudas are Great Peng birds with golden wings. Kinnaras are music spirits too. Maharagas are giant pythons. All of them protect someone who recite the Earth Store Sutra or bow to Earth Store Bodhisattva.

Second, their good roots will increase daily. Sometimes cultivators are extremely bold as they set their resolve on Bodhi; consequently doing a lot of merit. Sometimes they turn around and withdraw. They retreat because they feel that they do not experience any responses despite all the merit they do for Buddhism. Good results increase daily means that they do no retreat; instead they grow by the day. They develop blessings and wisdom, do good and virtuous deeds, achieve merit and always move forward vigorously in Buddhism. Why? It is because you recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, recite the Fundamental Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra or pay respects to Earth Store Bodhisattva that you experience the response of growing good effects on a daily basis.

Third, they will amass supreme causes pertaining to sagehood. This means they do various jobs in Buddhism, such as printing sutras and building temples. Repairing bridges and paving roads are about amassing supreme causes pertaining to sagehood too. Making sutras, turning the great Dharma wheel and doing all these good deeds are about cultivating the path to Bodhi and amassing supreme causes pertaining to sagehood.

Fourth, they will not retreat from Bodhi. Sometimes we are vigilant and sometimes we are lax in our cultivation. Vigilant, we are quite bold with everything. Lax, we feel that we are not getting any responses from any work we do, so we retreat. Recite Earth Store Sutra, recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, and bow and make offerings to Earth Store Bodhisattva; we do not renounce our resolve for Bodhi. Our wish for enlightenment moves ahead and grows on a daily basis, never retreating.

Fifth, their clothing and food will be abundant. We are not short of clothes or food. People work their entire lives for those three meals a day. They work hard out of fear of dying because of starvation or cold. They are always looking for more money. When we did not have any money, we want 10,000 dollars. When we get our wish and earn 10,000, we find that lacking. We tell ourselves, if we had 100,000 dollars, we will retire. But when we make that 100,000 dollars, we remember that our kids have to go to school. We do not have enough money. We want to buy a car, so there is not enough money. We want to buy a cruise boat, so there is not enough money still. Thinking even bigger, we may want an airplane. Hundred thousand dollars does not do any good. We look for money.

When we find that one million dollars and are ready to buy that plane, the price of the airplane has gone up. We could have purchased it for $990,000 before, but now it is $9,900,000. The price has gone up by ten times. We cannot afford it once again. We can never catch up because of our greed. We were going to be satisfied and retired as millionaires, but we end up continuing with the pursuit. We are never satisfied and never content.

If you recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, recite Earth Store Sutra, bow and make offerings to Earth Store Bodhisattva, you will always enjoy more than enough clothing and food. When you want to buy an airplane, you will earn more than enough money for two airplanes. That is how wonderful this Dharma is. In that case, I will hurry up and recite Earth Store Bodhisattva! Recite Earth Store Bodhisattva in the hopes of buying two airplanes is greed. Large amounts of greed will not bring about results. All we can do is try our best while reciting. Do not care so much about whether there will be results. Some say, “Master, I feel I am tricked by what you say!” Then what? Do not be tricked. Consequently, we must be content and be patient with what comes.

Sixth, they will never succumb to epidemics. Recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name and you will not contract any contagious diseases. Epidemics cannot touch you because there seems to be a border between you and the disease.

I remember when I was in Northeast China during a plague. A household of eleven had thirteen deaths in three days. How can a household of eleven have two more deaths than the number in the family? Two were bearers of gifts. Eleven was not a large enough number, two more had to be added. Out of these two, one was a worker for the family and the other was a distant relative who came to visit. They were additions to the eleven that made the total number of dead thirteen. When I was there, I took four young disciples with me. “We are going to go and rescue people!” How? I told them, “Let us recite the Great Compassion Mantra to duel the plague spirit.” We went to villages plagued by this epidemic and circled the place three times, reciting the Great Compassion Mantra. When we finished reciting Great Compassion Mantra, the epidemic vanished. So reciting the Great Compassion Mantra is very effective and wonderful.

Seventh, they will escape calamities involving fire and water. Recite Earth Store’s name, there will be no floods or fire, or they will not drown in water and not be burned by fire. They will naturally float to shallow spots and reach the shore when they fall into the sea; they will naturally be rescued when fire is closing in on them.

Eighth, they will never be threatened by thieves. Why are you robbed and stolen from? It is because you unreasonably took other people’s money for your own. You had lied in the past so you are robbed in this life. You have to pay your due. This is the reason why you are robbed and stolen from. All this is a result of cause and effect. There is nothing strange about it. If you really understand this, then you will see the cause and effect in any state and recognize this cyclic law.

Ninth, they will be respected by all who see them. Recite Guanshiyin Bodhisattva (also known as Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Yin) and Earth Store Bodhisattva’s names and pay respect to them; people will respect you and feel close to you. They feel as if they see relatives from long ago. They feel so close to you, as if they have come home. This is like being along overseas where you know no one. When you meet some old friends, you feel awkward. You do not know whether you are happy or sad, whether to smile or cry, Or you want to laugh and cry! You cry because you see someone dear to you. You laugh because you feel secure now.

People respect you at the sight of you. No one criticizes you or mistreats you. Do not say, “You know, I am an upasaka! You must respect me!” Or, “I am a Dharma Master, bow to me when you see me!” This is not about forcing others to respect you. The saying goes, “ Musk will naturally smell nice, why let the wind blow on it?” If you were really virtuous, do not act like some medicinal patches salesperson. “Oh, my medicinal patch is the best. Arthritis, rheumatism, numbness, just put on this patch and it will cure itself even if you do not put on the patch. Do not sell yourself, fearing that others will not know you. “Do you know who I am? I am the most powerful Buddhist Dharma Protector. I am a senior Dharma Protect at so and so temple. Also, I am the Board of Director of some charity organization. I am also the supporter of some place, etc., etc.” One introduces oneself because one is afraid that other people will not know. Stop, that is pretense and untrue. Advertise and sell yourself, then blind individuals will not know and be swindled by you; but people with eyes will see it right away, finding you pathetic.

Tenth, they will be aided by ghosts and spirits. If you have real merit, why publicize it for yourself? Ghosts, spirits, & Dharma protectors will help and support you. They will help you and resolve your difficulties from behind the scenes. No need to publicize. The tenth advantage is that all ghosts, good and bad, and all spirits, good and bad, will all help you. Evil spirits will also help you? Is this due to the power of Earth Store Bodhisattva? It is by the power of Earth Store Bodhisattva. All evil ghosts and spirits become Dharma protectors.

If I recite Earth Store King Bodhisattva, will he tell people to come and scold me? No. Why? To tell you the truth, you are not up the level yet! You have not even finished studying, how can you pass the test? You pass when you graduate from college. Why test you if you just entered college and have not even graduated? Do not think that scolding is bad. Scoldings are tests. If you can take it, you pass. If you pass, keep going forward and cultivate. Do you cultivate any more after you pass the test? Cultivate even more once you pass. If not, what is the use of passing the test? What is the use of studying to earn a Ph.D.? It is the same idea. If you understand, you understand; if you do not understand, there is nothing I can do.

Eleventh, women who want to, can be reborn as men. The eleventh advantage is that if you are tired of being a woman, by paying respects and making offerings, praising and reciting the Fundamental Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra, or reciting and praising Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, then you as a woman will turn into a man. Perhaps it is not because you are tired of being a woman that you wish to become a man. You feel that it is inconvenient being a woman and therefore wish to become a man. You make that kind of vow because everything will be convenient then. Earth Store Bodhisattva will make your wishes come true.

Twelfth, women who want to, can be reborn as daughters of national leaders and officials. Any wish to go from a woman to a man will be met. So will the wish to go from a man to a woman. Men may recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, bow to an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva or recite the Fundamental Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra to become a woman who teaches living beings. Women usually have less of a temper, are more detail-oriented and speak as if they have affinities with others. This is why some Bodhisattvas make the vow to go from being men to women. They go from being men to women to propagate the Buddhadharma and teach living beings. Consequently, these women are not average women, but daughters to kings and ministers. They enjoy a lot of power to influence people so that people may develop their faith and intention to cultivate. These women have been reborn again because of their vows.

Thirteenth, they will have upright appearances. The thirteenth advantage is not only about being women, but women who are intelligent and wise, nice looking without any flaws. The nose, eyes, ears and mouth all look the way they should. Someone asks, “Are there ears that do not look like ears. Are there eyes that do not look like eyes?” Some women have triangular eyes or strange looking eyes that look about as if they are ready to steal some cows. They do not look so elegant. They are rather crude, improper and less than perfect. The nose is on top of the head, with nostrils pointed upward. What do you think that is like? Some women have one eye up close to the sky and one eye close to the floor, ears on the back of her head, and a mouth on the chin. They do not look quite like people, not quite like ghosts, and not quite like monkeys. If they were a product of evolution, how is it that they do not look like anybody else but they are the only ones who look that way? This is an improper and imperfect look. If you wish to become women, your looks ought to be perfect and proper. If your features were proper-looking, people will feel a sense of affinity with you. If your features were improper, people take a look and run away as if they saw a yaksha.

Fourteenth, they will often be born in the heavens. The fourteenth advantage surpasses those described before. They are born in the heavens often to enjoy heavenly blessings and supremely wonderful bliss.

Fifteenth, they may be emperors or national leaders. The fifteenth is that they may become candidates for emperors by reciting the Earth Store Sutra, bow to Earth Store Bodhisattva, and recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name. This is an incredible advantage. “Dharma Master, I do not want to go to the heavens and be an emperor or be a good-looking individual. This Saha World is so miserable, I have had enough already.” You really had enough? There are other opportunities for realizing Buddhahood, the last enumerated advantage is to realize Buddhahood.

Sixteenth, they will have the wisdom to know past lives. They know what they did in their past lives. Perhaps they were political officials, scholars or business people. They know what their last names, first names were, their place of birth and age of death. Now they are in a new house, different from their earlier ones. Those with the power to know past lives know what occurred in their past lives.

Seventeenth, they will obtain whatever they seek. The 17th advantage is that you get what you want. You want riches and you get them. You want people, you get people. You want food, you get food. You want to be rich and you will own an uncountable amount of gold, silver and jewels. Just avoid following in the footsteps of Disatrers.Reza Shah Pahlavi [the Iranian czar], who earned so much money, none of which was enjoyed during his lifetime. He died empty-handed. How meaningless and worthless. Do not be misers.

Eighteenth, their families will be happy. The 18th advantage is that their family, relatives and friends around them are all happy, safe and at peace. People do not fight or argue. This creates happy families.

Sometimes a lot of afflictions develop in the family, between husband and wife, father and son, brothers and sisters, or in-laws. The most intimate relationship in our lives has to be that between parent and child. When their opinions diverge, the child may think: “Look, the old man’s brain is arcane; his knowledge is arcane; everything he does is arcane. He has not caught up with modern times and does not know how to deal with the contemporary world.” He feels that old people do present a problem. Elders are so concerned about their children that they forgive their children no matter what wrong they do.

The children, unfortunately, are ungrateful and consider the elders in the wrong. Why do you not educate your children well? It is because parents do not know how to teach their children. Consequently children do not know how to take care of their parents. Many problems remain unresolved between parents and their children. As for couples, before marriage, both wear a façade and do not argue or fight. After marriage, both display their temper. The man will let the woman know that he is upset and the woman will let the man know that she is upset. They give each other stress. With this 18 th advantage, your families and friends will always be happy if you get to see an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva or hear the name of Earth Store Bodhisattva.

Nineteenth, they will never undergo any disasters. All disasters and accidents, adverse and inauspicious events are unexpected disasters. Suicide by hanging, drowning at the sea, airplane crashes, car accidents, suicide by taking poisons are all unexpected deaths. When all accidents disappear, all disasters disappear. There will be no more hurt or harm.

Twentieth, they will leave the bad karmic paths forever. No more offense karma. The three evil destinies are the realms of hell-beings, hungry ghosts, and animals.

Twenty-first, they will always reach their destination. The 21st advantage is one where they go everywhere unobstructed and very smoothly. Things are auspicious and beneficial for them.

Twenty-second, their dreams will be peaceful and happy. The 22nd advantage. Unlike average people’s dreams some always have vicious nightmares. They experience nightmares where they are either chased by ghosts, bitten by dogs, or eaten by tigers. Sometimes they are pressed upon by ghosts and cannot move. They panic. Recite The Fundamental Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra and Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, your dreams will become happy and lucky.

Twenty-third, their deceased relatives will leave suffering behind. The 23rd advantage is that your parents, ancestors, and relatives since beginningless time, will leave suffering and attain bliss, become liberated from birth and death. Many deceased individuals fall into the hells because of their karma. However, because you see an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva or hear the name of Earth Store Bodhisattva, there are 28 advantages that make the deceased leave suffering behind and acquire bliss. The deceased of the present are our deceased parents and relatives in this life. They will leave suffering and attain bliss. The deceased of the past are all of our deceased parents and relatives throughout all of our lives will leave suffering and attain bliss.

Twenty-fourth, they will enjoy blessings earned in previous lives. You ride on the good roots and blessings from your past lives. Having done a lot of merit and planted deep roots of goodness, they enjoy such blessings of lives past. Why are we rich in this life? In past lives we made offerings to the Sangha and offered charity to the poor. In the past, we made offerings to the Triple Jewel, guarded Buddhism, and helped the poor. This is why we are rich in this lifetime. Why are we poor in this life, perhaps so impoverished that we have no clothing or food? In past lives we refused to help the poor. In lives past, we refused to aid the poor. We were very stingy and did not want to give up anything. If we were not so miserly before, but cultivated blessings and wisdom instead, then the blessings done in past lives may be enjoyed in this lifetime.

Twenty-fifth, they will be praised by sages. The 25th is that all Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, sages, and arhats praise you and tell you that you are a good man or a good woman.

Twenty-sixth, they will be intelligent and have keen faculties. The 26th advantage is about being very smart and wise, having a powerful memory. The eyes are bright and they see far. The ears hear well. All six sense faculties are keen.

Twenty-seventh, they will be magnanimous and empathetic. The 27th is being full of sympathy and compassion toward everyone. Providing every individual with joy and relieving one of one’s pain. Regardless of how unkind people are, they treat others kindly and refuse to seek revenge.

Twenty-eighth, they will ultimately realize Buddhahood. What is the 28th advantage? This is the most critical advantage– to irreversibly enter the Bhodi path so that they will definitely become Buddhas in the future.

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.

ksitigarbha pendant

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.

Kuan Kong Gold Pendant

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.

Spilling Salt Is A Sign of Bad Luck!

Published Setyembre 16, 2016 by jptan2012
spilled-salt-bottle-on-table

Photo uploaded from Google Images

In the preceding post, I talked about the how salt is used as main and very essential ingredient in making the Catholic Church’s holy water.

Today, I would like to share with you another thing about salt.

Once, while having dinner with some High School friends, one of them accidentally spilled salt. I told him that spilling salt is a sign that bad luck is about to come, meaning a bad thing or bad things may soon happen. As I was about to proceed to tell him how to counter or stop the bad luck from happening, he sort of rudely told me that he is a Christian and that he don’t believes in such things. Another friend who knows my interest in Feng Shui signal for me to just keep quiet. Until now, I still don’t know whether I did the right thing.

For soon after that incident, that particular High School friend entered into a bad business and he almost lost everything. He was reminded of his encounter with me and asked me as to what he should do. Luckily, at that time the Vajrapani Ruel is already available and so he got one. Soon he started to put his business back and got back what he lost.

But the question is whether he can do anything when he spilled the salt to stop the bad luck? The answer is yes. He can be more cautious and be aware of the warning. He can also simply pinch a salt from the spilled salt and throw it over his shoulders while chanting OM AMI DEWA HRIH or OM AH HUM or OM MANI PADME HUM seven times. By doing that one can surely prevent the bad luck from happening or at the very least, it can help you from receiving the full impact of the bad luck.

Having said that, I would like to clarify that spilling salt doesn’t bring bad luck. Spilling salt signifies that bad luck may happen. So the bad luck is already there and is forthcoming, spilling salt serves as a warning.

Salt Is A Key Ingredient in Making the Catholic Church’s Holy Water!

Rock Salt

Regular readers of this blog will know how much I believe in the power of salt, especially rock salt, sea salt, pink Himalayan salt, and if possible the rarer Hawaiian Lava Sea Salt. You use salt to help cleanse an area of a negative energy. You use salt to clean things, especially crystals or gemstones, of negative energies. You use salt to drive away evil spirits, and a whole lot more.

In fact, I write about salt so much that I received an email from a person who introduced herself as a devout Catholic. She said all the things I write about salt are pure evil and encouraged people to be more reliant on salt that on the higher being. In her case, she was referring to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Rock Salt

If I made people rely on salt more than on the Higher Beings, whether it is Jesus Christ or Buddha, Bodhisattvas, or Deities, or Allah, then I would like to apologize, that is not my intention. I simply want to share with people and help people have a better life by introducing them to the power of using salt. Salt really has some Feng Shui use or to be more general and encompassing, it does have cleansing capabilities that goes beyond the physical. I don’t want to argue about religion, but the truth is even the Catholic Church, they make use of salt whenever they make their holy water. Salt is one of the key ingredients in making a holy water, and one of the two physical ‘material’ the other being natural water. The other ingredients are Bible verses and several special prayers.

Pink Himalayan Salt

In fact, salt is used in different religions as a ‘psychic’ or ‘auric’ cleansing agent.

I don’t want you to rely on salt more than you can rely on the higher beings. But there is nothing wrong in using salt, besides I assume even the Pope will need it to make Holy Water.

What To Do When You Have No Other Choice But to Face Your Bad Direction?

Published Mayo 4, 2016 by jptan2012

All of us have our own four lucky directions and four unlucky directions base on our Kua number, which in turn is base on our birth date. If you are not yet familiar with this I suggest you read the following posts that were written 4 years ago:

It is important that you get to read them first before you read this post for you to understand this article better.

Now the ideal situation is you totally avoid having your house or office face any of your bad directions, or facing your bad direction while working or sleeping. However, in reality we can’t always avoid these directions. If you are a couple, always take note that the head of the family should always face the good directions. But whether you are a couple or single person and you can’t avoid facing your bad directions, please do the following to help temper the effects of the bad direction.

  1. Make a weekly offering to the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Gods. In making an offering of incense, flowers, water, or even food you create a lot of good merit or energy of yourself. This will help temper the bad effects of having to face your bad directions.
  2. Wear a powerful amulet and highly recommend the Vajrapani Ruel and/or the Surangama Mantra Amulet. Wearing a powerful amulet will help protect you from the negative effects of having to face your bad directions.
  3. Do good deeds and do them sincerely. Feed the animals; donate to the charity, etc. Sincerely doing good deeds will help temper the negative effects of having to face your bad directions.

Remember though, it is better if you avoid your bad directions. These cures are temporary or at best they just temper the bad effects.

Use Water to Save A Life and Earn Some Good Karma!

Published Abril 16, 2016 by jptan2012

We are at the height of El Niño and all of use here in the Philippines can actually feel the heat. In fact, this is one of the hottest seasons we ever had. Famine because of drought are already happening in the country side and it seems that it is bound to get even worst first before it’ll start to get better.

I’m sure most of you have experienced this tremendous heat and are suffering because of it. The good thing is we are able to take care of ourselves (most of us). Many of us can turn the air – conditioner on and drink lots of water.bird water

This is the season where we can earn some good merits or good karma, although hopefully this should not be our main and primary reason. Because of the heat, a lot of the birds and stray dogs and cats are dying of thirst or heat stroke. It will help a lot if we can put out some water for them.

For the birds, you can put the water on your balcony or outside your bedroom window, or on a tree trunk if you are able to do this. Note that their food might be drying up also because of the heat, so while you’re at it you might want to bring out a little food also. Bird feeds, or fruits will do.

For the stray dogs and cats, please do put a big flat bowl of water outside your house. This way, a thirsty dog or cat might wander to your place and they will be able to drink some water. Again, while you’re at it you might want to put some food also.

In doing this, you can earn some merit, but more importantly one can help save a life!

Add Yang Energy Into Your Water By Adding Slices of Fruit!

Published Abril 9, 2016 by jptan2012

detox waterThe past few years we saw an increase in the popularity of adding fruit slices to water that is supposedly turns the water into detox water. I will not dwell on that topic, the detox part I mean, because I’m not an expert about detox, but what I know is adding slices of fruit to water gives it an extra yang energy that helps makes our day slightly better.

Carrying a bottled water offers no significant Feng Shui effect, however, putting some fruits into it makes a difference, because that is a way where we can fruits with us with out in undergoing a fast oxidation process. Regular readers of this blog all knows that fruits have different Feng Shui implications, and eating them or drinking their essence also provides almost the same kind of essence.

So for example, you find yourself a victim of office politics, putting slices of lemon or lime or calamansi on your water will help avert this kind of negative energies. If you find yourself having a chaotic relationship with your officemate putting slice of apple or strawberries in your water will also help stop this energy.

And if you need some healing, use cucumber!

So next time you need some Feng Shui cure but can’t bring the whole fruit to your office, be hip and bring a bottle of water with slices of fruits. Your officemate will simply think that you are drinking detox water.

Tanzanite (2):A Must Have Rare Precious Stone that Heals, Protects, and Increase Wealth Luck!

Published Enero 22, 2016 by jptan2012

In the preceding post, I introduced you to the rare and very powerful stone called Tanzanite. In that post I talked about its physical properties and why is it considered as a perfect stone to have for this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. However, the Tanzanite is not just a stone for this year, it is a great stone to have and wear even beyond 2016 because it is a powerful stone that has strong protective and healing energies, and it also helps increase wealth luck. Furthermore, it is a stone that can be worn even by people with high water element in their charts, because it is balanced by the intrinsic fire and earth element of the stone.tanzanite4

HEALING

As mentioned in the first part of this post, Tanzanites are good healing stones. It helps boosts our immune system and improve strength. It is especially good for people who always feel physically weak and drained. Furthermore, it is a very powerful stone for those who experience depression and anxiety, or even chronic stress syndrome and other psychological or mental illness. It’s subtle fire energy helps people fight off addiction, especially the milder ones like alcoholism, food addiction or even shopping addiction.

MOOD ENHANCER

On top of that a lot of people I know who got the stone consistently said that their mood has definitely improve. And true enough simply looking at a Tanzanite will imbibe you with a positive energy of elation. You will feel happier and much more energized. They said it is as if simply having the stone their worries has been lifted off their shoulder. And true enough the fluid energy of the water element and the subtle vibrant energy of the fire element in the Tanzanite has this positive effect on people.tanzanite3

RELATIONSHIP AND COMMUNICATION ENHANCER

One thing I really love about the Tanzanite is that it is a wonderful that aids us in having a better relationship, whether it is a personal or professional relationship. Its blue energies directly control our throat chakra thus making us more expressive and a better communicator. However, it’s intrinsic earth energies makes us grounded thus more in control of what we want to say. But it’s fire energy helps us to be more assertive and yet in a gentle manner.

PROTECTOR

The Tanzanite is also a very good aura protector. It protects you from negative energies, especially the ones like created by the people around you. But more than that, it helps protects you from negative energies caused by unseen elementals.tanzanite5

WEALTH ENHANCER

But what is really surprising with this stone is that the combination of the three elements found in this stone creates a wonderful wealth enhancing energies. At first look some of its intrinsic elements may be contradicting each other, but the right balance that forms in every Tanzanite makes it a unique blue stone that creates a wonderful wealth enhancing energy. This is especially true for people who are in marketing, legal, advertising, PR, and sales.

I personally have several different favorite stones but the Tanzanite is now overtaking all those stones. The fact that this is a rare stone that is bound not to last very long makes it even more special.

The problem is really looking for an authentic and not very expensive Tanzanite. If you are looking for a Tanzanite better contact a trusted gemologist or jeweler. But don’t be surprised if some jewelers are still not familiar with the Tanzanite, because this is a fairly young stone. Tiffany & Co. has one of the best collections of Tanzanites that are commercially available. You can visit their site if you really want the top of the line Tanzanite that may cost around US$ 3,000.00 for a small piece. However, you need not get the top of the line for you to experience its wonderful energies. Here in the Philippines, I don’t personally know of any stores that sell authentic Tanzanite. But recently I came across a FB page called Crystals and Gold, I don’t really know the owner but the ones I referred to them are very happy with the quality of semi – precious stones they get from her. The best part is that their price is not expensive. But a Tanzanite is a Tanzanite so even an affordable Tanzanite may still cost a little high.

Tanzanite (1): A Rare But Perfect Blue Stone For This 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey!

Published Enero 21, 2016 by jptan2012

If you have read my 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast, you would know that one of the most recommended cures for this year is wearing a blue stone. This is a cure for most, but not all, to determine whether you should be wearing a blue stone please read the first part of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast.

Once you have determine that you need to wear a blue stone to supplement the energy of the missing water element, you can choose with the different blue stones, however, I believe that there is one stone that will works best for this year and the coming years. I’m talking about the Tanzanite.cristal de tanzanite (Tanzanie)

Tanzanite is a stone discovered in Mererani Hills of Manara Region is Northern Tanzania is 1967. Although Tanzanite is considered as a blue stone it may slight appear to have different colors when viewed under different light conditions. It is this varying color that makes it a perfect stone for this 2016. But before I go explain the last sentence, let me talk more about the physical qualities of a Tanzanite.

When a Tanzanite from initially as a trichroic crystal this means that it has three colors. The said colors are blue (represents water element), with some very light shades of violet (represents fire), and brown (which normally represents wood but because in this kind of formation it represents earth). When mined or ‘harvested’ before making it available commercially, gems are usually heat treated to bring out the most beautiful color of the stone. Tanzanite goes through this process as well, it takes out the brownish color, and retains only the blue color, sometimes with very minimal traces of violet, which more often than not are only visible to the eye of an expert.tanzanite-grades

Sometimes, although very rare, a heat treated Tanzanite will have a green hue, this green tanzanite are considered more valuable than the regular one. Some say that there are pink tanzanites. I personally haven’t seen one.

It is also important to know that when gem stones are mined, like the Tanzanite, they usually come up as one whole big block, the outer parts are considered the skin and will have the lowest quality, as you go deeper to the center, they are the ones that are considered as the higher quality. As mentioned earlier, to bring out the deepest blue of a Tanzanite, they are usually heat treated, and depending on the quality of color that came out, they may be considered as polished raw, high grade, gem quality. There are different subs – categories but I rather not go into that. In some cases, a Tanzanite is mined or harvested as a high grade gem quality, because of metamorphic occurrences underground, the natural blue of a Tanzanite is brought out underground, this is considered as the highest grade gem quality, and much coveted. But that is not to say that the Tanzanite that is heat treated above ground is inferior. A Tanzanite is a Tanzanite, and there is no Tanzanite that can be considered as low quality. That’s how precious they are.Tanzanite

Furthermore, Tanzanite is only mined in one place in the whole world, and that is in Mererani Hills in Tanzania. So a Tanzanite is considered really rare and naturally it is not expected to last very long. This makes a Tanzanite even more expensive and much coveted. A person who collects semi – precious stones to high quality gems will definitely wish for a Tanzanite.

However, these physical qualities of a Tanzanite are not what make it a much coveted especially for this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. But it is because it is a very good stone to have regardless of the year, although again it is a perfect stone for the year. Allow me to explain but I would like to say that it is better that you understand the energies of the year by reading the first part of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Forecast by clicking here.

tanzanite2As mentioned, the year’s chart show that this is an imbalanced year, water is missing and fire is strong as well as metal. Most people will need to have the energies of the water element and blue colored stones usually represent this. However, water destroys fire and while Feng Shui experts are saying we need water, a lot of people will naturally have the water element in their sign, so for some wearing blue stone would mean a high increase in the water energies, and thus destroying the year’s natural energies. This is fine, because the year’s natural energies is predominantly fire and it will not be destroyed but it will be tamed, but since the a Tanzanite as very slight hues of violet, which represents the fire element, harmoniously blending with its blue, then this becomes a great symbolic representation of harmonious blending of your ‘artificial’ water energies with that of the year’s natural predominant energy! This is also why it is a perfect stone for people who need the water energy but cannot not have a small fire energy. Furthermore, having the color brown that is in the case of the Tanzanite represents the earth energy and a gem being natural earth energy, this then nurtures the metal energy of the year, which for the year represents money or wealth.

Furthermore, a Tanzanite is a stone that aurically boosts one’s immune system and is quite good for various physical ailments. On top of it, it helps alleviates and prevent psychological and mental problems, both of which are illnesses that are not as easily recognized. Plus the blue of a Tanzanite, especially, the one of the gem quality is close to blue of Medicine Buddha. Combined effects of these two qualities make it a perfect stone to help us manage the ruling Illness and Accident energy of the year. This with the Illness Suppression Amulet should help us avoid getting affected by the effects of the Illness Star.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

My next post shall talk about why the Tanzanite is also a good stone even beyond 2016.

Incidentally, since I have started my blog, especially the ones that talks about the use of crystals, people have been asking me where they can get their crystals or semi – precious stones or even precious ones. I normally refer them to various suppliers depending on the stone they need or want. However, recently I was quite fortunate to come across a FB page that says crystals, they are called Crystals and Gold. I don’t really know the owner, but looking at their pictures it do seems that they have good authentic natural crystals (not fake one), the ones that have a prices indicated seems to be very reasonable, actually they are very affordable and low compared to other sellers. You can visit their site just look for it. I have referred several readers and they seem very happy with the quality and the price. I just hope they still have Tanzanites!

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.

2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Water and Flower Ritual

Published Enero 20, 2016 by jptan2012

If you have read my 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast, you would know by now that the year extremely lacks the element of Water. And so today allow me to share a short ritual that you can do on the eve of Chinese New Year. This ritual will help ensure that you symbolically create the presence of the water element and thus provide some buffer or slight relief from the full effects of not having a the water element. However, it should noted that depending on your bazi chart, this is not a replacement for wearing a blue stone or semi – precious stone bracelet.

Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year this year is on February 8. So on February 7 gather a big jar of water, about a gallon, fill it up with clean water and place petals from 8 kinds of flowers. Do not use flowers with thorns like rose.

On the eve of the Chinese New Year at around 4pm, collect the water and put the petals in. Leave it in front of your altar, if you don’t have one, put it at the center of your house. Then the following day, on Lunar New Year, before 8AM sprinkle the water around your house. You can also sprinkle a little with member of your family. Pour the remaining water on your garden or a plant together with water.

Voila! This simple ritual should ease some of the effects of the missing water element.

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.

It is that time of the year again when people are asking about what’s in store for next year. As early as now people have been asking whether the coming is a good year or a bad year, but like I always say a year is rarely all bad and rarely all good. It will always be a mixture.

I have made my chart several weeks back, but as usual making the analysis and writing it is a big task. In the past few years due to the careful analysis I was able to pronounce that accurately some calamities. For example, modesty aside, and I say this without pride I was the only Feng Shui writer who was able to accurately predict the Typhoon Haiyan (Typhoon Yolanda) that happened in the Visayas, then I was also able to predict the weird weather that happened in 2014, and for 2015 I did say that there might be a strong earthquake that will happened in Asia. Admittedly, the earthquake might be symbolic in some sense, but as I stated in my forecast, I strongly feel that it is going to be an actual earthquake.

Now, allow me to share with you my forecast for 2016. Again, this will be shared with you in 3 major parts. Namely:

  1. 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: An Imbalance Year Filled With A Number of Good Stars (Part 1)
  2. 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stats, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: An Imbalance Year Filled With A Number of Good Stars (Part 2)
  3. 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey 12 Animal Chinese Zodiac Feng Shui Forecast

For this year, the last part is going to be divided into 12 parts. One post each for each animal sign to make it an easier read. I have been receiving a lot of request for me to do this because sometimes it gets some readers confused if they want to read only certain Chinese Animal Zodiac Signs and all the signs. On top of that I will have a separate posts about the Tai Suey God of the year.

As mentioned this is the year of the Fire Monkey and it officially starts on February 8, 2016. Regular readers will know that I always say that as we usher in the New Year of the Western Calendar, this still doesn’t include the energies of the succeeding year and I have always stressed on that, however, for this year forget about that because we will experience the energies of Lunar New Year 2016 early on, in fact, as early as this December. This is especially true for some signs, which will be discussed later, but I would like to stress on those people born under the year or under the sign of the Ox. More on this later.

The good news is base on the 24 Mountain Stars formula, this coming 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey is a record breaking year because it will usher in several Auspicious Stars and two – thirds of the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac will benefit from these stars. Furthermore, most of the signs, actually only those people born under the sign of the Ox is excepted from this, will have some good stars. In this aspect this should be a good year. But of course there are other aspects that have to be considered.

First let me tell you something about the Fire Monkey. By nature, the Monkey is a smart and very strategic to the point of being devious, and it may also be cunning. A review of the past ‘Monkey’ years shows that it is quite an unstable year in such a way that you’ll see that energies of the year quickly changes. So if you’re not a person who can easily adopt to change, chances are you might be in little bit of trouble. However, if you’re stable and/or someone who can easily adopt to change, then you’ll be safe this year.

One of the biggest problem of the year is that the Bazi/Paht Chee chart of the year is terribly unbalanced or imbalanced. Fire is very strong while water is sorely lacking. I will discuss this further but off hand generally speaking in Feng Shui the water element represents water. Although for the year 2016 it represents resources and support. So this off hand indicates a lack of support and resources, but since water generally represents wealth luck, then wealth luck might be affected also. Again, I will discuss this further later.

I would like this part of the forecast to focus more on the Bazi or Paht Chee chart of the year, I would like to mention that the year is ruled by the Flying Star #2, or what is better known as the Illness Star. Regular readers of this blog should know by now that the Illness Star also causes accidents, so we might see a rise in accidents and people getting sick. This might range from simple feeling under the blue or grave illness. Those people who are already battling an illness should be extra more careful in 2016. My Guru Lama has made a special and highly consecrated Illness Suppression Amulet for this.

Illness Suppression Amulet2

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Another thing that bothers me is the fact that the Flying Star #5 or what is known as the Five Yellow Star flies into the North East. I will explain further on the part 2 of this forecast, but this year because it flies into the earth sector the 5 – Yellow Star will be a lot stronger. And people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger, as well as people who stay in the Northeast sector of the house office, building, home, or room are greatly and gravely affected. This year you need a stronger cure for this.

But as I always say what is the use of knowing these things if we cannot do anything about it. We cannot just torment ourselves with worry. So I hope to be able to provide some suggestions on how one can protect oneself from these hostile energies.

2016 bazi chart 2

I always do my chart manually and I don’t have a software to make it into a presentation format. Thus photo is lifted from Google Images.

As I always do, I want to look at the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee chart. As mentioned earlier there is a strong fire element in the chart and it is completely lacking of water, which means it is quite dry. What dominates this year’s Bazi or Paht Chee chart are the elements fire and metal. For those who are familiar in Feng Shui knows that Fire destroys Metal, and this simply cannot be good. Again, for those of you who are familiar about the relationships of the elements, and also who are familiar with a Bazi or Paht Chee chart knows that this year’s chart is not very nice. Earlier, I mentioned that the general representation of the element water in Feng Shui is money luck or financial luck or wealth luck. So it’s absence can only generally mean that money will be a little hard to get this year. However, this is tempered by the fact that for this year, Metal represents money, and as mentioned the Metal element with the Fire element dominates the chart. So what does this mean? Are we going to have money or not? Am I conflicting myself?

Let us focus first on what the Metal element represents this year. For this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey, the Metal element represents Wealth. So there is going to be wealth and financial luck. But it is not direct, which means this year we have to be more creative and find ways to earn money. The usual way will not work. What I’m trying to say is, if you’re a businessman selling a certain product, you will that in marketing your product you will have to think of new strategies because doing the usual marketing will not work. And if you’re a regular employee, it’s a year where you might find your regular income missing because of complacency.

For this year, water represents authority and power. So the lack of this element means authority and power will be severely diminished. So rebellions might be a problem this year both in the political and business arena. This problem combined with the wiliness of the Monkey might create energies of treacheries and duplicity. To guard yourself against this it will be extremely beneficial for you to wear or carry one of the following: Kalachakra Pendant (made of gold, or clear quartz, or jade) which is also one of the Holy Trinity of Protection of 2015, Vajrapani Ruel, Sun Wukong (The Monkey God).

kalachakra pendant2

The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

Now the question everybody will be asking now is how do we compensate for the lack of water? Should we all be wearing blue or black (colors that represents the water element), or wear blue semi – precious stones like Lapiz Lazuli or Sodalite? Well, the clear answer is yes, but I guess this is the year that I guess you will have to learn how to check your own Paht Chee or Bazi chart to check how much water do you have. Because if you have 5 or more water element on your chart, you need not wear blue or black. And if you have 3 or more water element on your chart, it’s time for you to celebrate because this is going to be a good year for you.

So how do you determine how much water element do you have?

I will not be able to teach you how to draw your own Bazi or Paht Chee chart because that will take years to learn. But you can go online and Google Bazi or Paht Chee counter. There are three or four of them online. Take the top 3 and follow the instructions given. They will request you to input your full birthdate, after which a chart similar the one above picture will be drawn up. All you have to do is simply count how many water do you have. But please don’t just use one, because there is one of those famous Paht Chee calculators that are not very accurate. Obviously, I’m not at a liberty to share which one so I suggest do all three, and chances are the two that’s similar follow that. Well if all three are the same then good for you.

As I said, if you have 4 or more water elements on your chart, then good for you because by having a high water ranking will already make you luckier next year.

Now for those of you who have a high fire element on their chart, then I suggest that you wear lots of blue or black and wear a blue stone. Lapis Lazuli and Sodalite are fine, but if you can get a Tanzanite, all the more so much better. Tanzanite’s energy is a lot stronger.

But that doesn’t end there. If you have high metal element on your chart, when it is higher than 4, you will have to exhaust it by wearing a blue stone also.

I will have to clarify that there are hidden elements, but this is something I’m not capable of discussing here because it will take up a lot of space and time for me to write it. So as of now, use the above as a simple basis.

Sun Wukong2

Sun Wukong

Going back to the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Bazi or Paht Chee chart, and those of you are familiar with Feng Shui the production – destructive – exhaustive relationship of each element will have noticed this right away, there is some destructive relationship. Namely, as I said earlier, Fire destroys Metal. And so what I’m about to say might get more confusing again to the nouveau Feng Shui practitioner. We have already established that the water element generally represents money luck / wealth luck / financial luck in Feng Shui and so the absence of water signifies that money will be quite difficult to come by this year. However, this is somewhat compensated by the fact that the metal element for 2016 represents money. So because of this, it mean that bleak prognosis because of the lack of water element is alleviated, albeit money luck goes to the person who is more creative and hard working. BUT THERE IS FIRE IN THE CHART WHICH IS AS STRONG AS THE METAL ELEMENT, FURTHERMORE, THEY BOTH APPEARS ON THE YEAR AND HOUR PILLAR! This means the destructive cycles of these two elements are significant. What does this mean? Unfortunately, this indicates that there is a potential for financial crisis to happen or might incite to happen during the first quarter of the year and the last quarter of the year. If it happens of the first quarter, the effects might be felt on the middle of the year. If it happens towards the end then it will be felt by next year. But remember this is base on Lunar Calendar, so it happens in the first part of the year, we might start feeling it by August or September. And remember I use the word incite, because the trigger might not have anything to do with the ‘finance’ world, it can be political or something else. Especially affected by this are people who currently don’t have any ‘reserve’ money either in the bank or in their business. Also greatly affected are people who have a very high Fire element in their chart. To remedy this, I believe it is important for you to wear a blue stone like the Lapis Lazuli but for this year I’m partial for the precious stone Tanzanite. I will discuss this further on a different post. Also allow me to clarify here that the effect of this destructive cycle of the fire and metal are not only significant for the macro perspective, it can affect individuals by the fact that their wealth gaining activities will be met by challenges or opposition via a strong competition.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

At this point, allow me to share that the strong presence of the fire element next year will also mean that generally speaking the whole world will be warmer or hotter. This is basically nothing new because here in the Philippines the news has been talking about the fact that we will experience some drought. However, base on my annual reading, I would like to propose a slightly different scenario. I agree that the world will be warmer, but while a lot of places will experience some dryness, there are areas that will be generally very wet. Why? Because the chart also shows the presence of the Dragon, which this year brings in hidden water element, and this also means that generally speaking this is good because it alleviates some of the bad effects of the high fire element. But, we should not count on this so much.

In conclusion for this part, you will notice that although the year’s Paht Chee shows that this might be a challenging year but it is something that we cannot remedied. In the days to come I will be sharing with you this year’s essential charms but note, this is a year when people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger must take great care and they would need to protect themselves. But I’m getting ahead of myself here. For now, remember that in order to protect yourself from the wiliness and treacherous energy of the year you have to wear one of the following: Kalachakra (made of gold / jade/ clear quart), Vajrapani Ruel, Sun Wukong pendant. You also have to check your Bazi chart and depending on the number of presence of the elements that I have discussed above you have to wear a blue stone (sodalite, lapis lazuli, tanzanite) either as bracelet or pendant.

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.
