Experiencing A Series of Bad Luck? Try These Natural Feng Shui Cures…

Published Enero 8, 2013 by jptan2012

One of the things that people frequently ask me is whether Feng Shui is all about wearing amulets, charms, and talismans. The clear answer to that is a big NO! In fact, before Feng Shui experts discovered the importance and the power of symbols and images in curing a bad Feng Shui, Feng Shui used to be all about naturally attracting Yang energy. It is not clear, when did Feng Shui experts realized the power of using symbol, however, one thing is clear, as we progressed and people become more urbanized and we veer away from the natural condition of our planet, it has become harder to use natural Feng Shui thus people discovered the power of symbols, amulets, talismans, and charms.

However, there are still different natural ways of doing Feng Shui. I’ve shared some of the natural ways of curing a series of bad luck. Today, allow me to share with you a few more natural way of curing bad luck.

If you are experiencing some bad luck, you can simply do one or all of the following to help cure and stop your bad luck.

You can do this by going out and having a clean fun with your friends. Go watch a feel good movie, if it’s a comedy then better. You can also just go to the amusement park and spend some time having fun there.

The Importance of Wearing Jewelries

Published Agosto 11, 2012 by jptan2012

The truth is jewelries are not just for vanity, it has a Feng Shui effect.

If you look at China’s history, jewelries are seldom worn for it’s visual effect, but they are worn for a reason, and most of the time, if not all the time, the reason is for good Feng Shui – either has a protection or luck.

Emperors and Empress at that time don’t just wear jade or gold jewelries because they simply fancy them; they wear it because it is something that they need to wear. The truth is they have a Feng Shui expert that tells them what kind of jewelry they can or cannot wear.

On top of that, Chinese are partial to jades and gold because for a specific reason. They believe that jade is a protection stone and also a lucky money stone. In fact, you’ll seldom see a wealthy Chinese (then and now) who doesn’t own a jade. Jade is very important for Chinese. A lot of them wears a jade either as a pendant, ring, or as bangles (bracelet). They believe that the jade will absorb a negative chi that’s directed towards them.

Jade is one of the most favored semi-precious stone of the Chinese. However, you should be careful in buying your jade, there are a lot of faux/fake jade in the market because it’s quite easy to replicate it. I know of a Feng Shui consultant who has a store that sells fake or low quality jade at about Php 8,800.00 or about US$200.00. She gets those jade at aroung Php 50.00 each or US$1.00. I think it’s simply wrong to sell fake items, if one is selling fake one has to be quite honest that it’s a synthetic stone and not a real one.

Regular readers of this blog know that I’m an avid believer of the power of gold; this is because gold on its own is a good Feng Shui enhancer or cure. It is especially good if the gold is between 14 carat and 24 carat. The Chinese also believes that gold is a very Feng Shui enhancer for money luck. More than that, gold being a precious metal naturally carries a lot of yang chi.

Simply having a jade or a gold on your body naturally enhances our personal Feng Shui, this becomes better if the jewelry incorporates a Feng Shui symbol. This is the reason why I decided to have the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT cast in gold. However, simply having a gold ring, gold bracelet or necklace is actually good enough and simply having a jade ring worn on any of your fingers (but better on your pinky), or jade pendant, or jade bracelet is sure enough to bring some very positive chi.

Just make sure that the design doesn’t connote any negativity.

A Feng Shui Gift of Protection for Your Mom on Mother’s Day!

Published Mayo 12, 2012 by jptan2012

Several of my readers emailed me to inquire as to what is the best Feng Shui gift to be given to a mother.

The truth is Feng Shui is personal and while there are some Feng Shui recommendations that can be ‘generally’ given, the real essence of Feng Shui is quite personal and one has to look at the Bazi of the person.

Our mom is the most precious gift we have and I believe the most valuable gift we can give our mom is the gift of protection. I personally am very thankful that I thought of giving a gift of protection to my mom, and I didn’t realize then that it is something that would save her life.

I have been practicing and studying Feng Shui then, when all of a sudden I thought of giving my mom a special protection Feng Shui charm or amulet. She was scheduled to go out-of-town with her sister and my cousin, and I thought I’ll give her something that she may use as a protection.

Two days after receiving the Feng Shui protection amulet, she fell ill. She had diarrhea, and high fever. It was so bad that we have to call a doctor friend to see her at home, on top of that she has to fed by my sister and was confined in her room for a complete bed rest. My sister who is also familiar with Feng Shui told me that I might have given my mom a wrong Feng Shui amulet. When I assured her that I’m sure that I gave her something that’s appropriate for my mom, she inquired then whether I did clean off the Feng Shui amulet of any negative chi that it might have acquired since the amulet was made of a crystal. I assured her that I cleansed of the amulet from any chi it has acquired.

We decided to let my mom take off the amulet. But since she was still ill, she wasn’t able to join my aunt and cousin. Little did we know then that the illness would save her from a terrible accident.

Without going into detail, my aunt and cousin had an accident. It was so bad that they were badly injured. My mom would have been in the same car if she didn’t get ill.

I would like to point out to points here. First, an amulet may work in a seemingly bad way, but in effect it is just preventing you from a bigger harm, and second, I believe that gift of protection saved my mom.

I still believe that that was the best gift I’ve ever given my mom.

So if you’re inclined to give a Feng Shui gift for your mom, why don’t it be a gift of protection.

There are several protection Feng Shui amulet or charm that you can give like Sun Wukong pendant, Kuan Kong pendant, etc. However, I believe the following are very good for mothers.

KUAN YIN PENDANT. Kuan Yin, for those who are not familiar,  is like the Virgin Mary of the Buddhist. But I need to stress that Kuan Yin is a Celestial Being although some people do believe that she came to earth in the form of Princess Miao Shan. Also, if we are to talk about Kuan Yin and the Virgin Mary as a concept, Kuan Yin is so much older then the Virgin Mary. In fact, some people believe that the concept of Virgin Mary was derived from that of Kuan Yin.

This is from my personal collection. The reason I love this pendants so much is because it has a inscription of the Heart Sutra at the back. I wear the smaller one everyday.

I think all mothers should have a Kuan Yin pendant or an image of Kuan Yin because Kuan Yin for the Chinese Buddhist represents the most ideal trait of a mother – infinite compassion, specially to her ‘children’.

If you want to know more about Kuan Yin, please do read my previous posts – ‘KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEAR THE CRIES OF THE WORLD’; ‘UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN’; and ‘PAYING HOMAGE TO KUAN YIN, THE BUDDHA OF COMPASSION’.

THE SYMBOLIC SCRIPT OF AMITABHA BUDDHA’S MANTRA. Amitabha Buddha’s mantra which is OM AMI DEWA HRIH is one of the most powerful protection mantra. Wearing or carrying a symbolic script of the said mantra will continuously protect your mothers.

This is the symbolic script of the mantra of Amitabha Buddha, which is also a very good protection mantra. If you’re budget is tight, you can simply print this symbolic script, put in a red envelope and give it to your mom for her to carry everyday.

To know more about MANTRAS, please do read my previous post called – ‘MANTRA: THE INSTRUMENT TO TAP THE POWER OF THE SYMBOLIC SOUND, SCRIPT, AND THOUGHT’. 

GODDESS TARA PENDANT OR THE SYMBOLIC SCRIPT OF GODDESS TARA’S MANTRA. Goddess Tara is also called the Swift Liberator, just like our mothers, Goddess Tara is very quick to response to our plea. Goddess Tara is very good for mothers who has teenage kids and are starting to explore an ‘independent’ life by going out more often on their own. Every time a mother starts worrying about their kids who may still be out late in the evening, can call on Goddess Tara to ensure that their kids are kept safe.

To know more about Goddess Tara you can read the following posts – ‘GODDESS TARA, THE MOTHER OF SWIFT LIBERATION’ and ‘PAYING HOMAGE TO GODDESS TARA’.

This is a jade Goddess Tara pendant from my personal collection.

One other factor to ensure that your mom’s luck is kept intact and that she’s continuously protected through Feng Shui is to ensure that the Southwest section of your house should be ‘present’. Meaning, it should be habited and used, and that area do not function as a storage area. It’s also good to keep the Southwest section of the house well lit to help ensure that the mom of the house always has good chi.
