Feng Shui Tips to Enhance Wealth Luck, Financial Luck, and Money Luck!

Published Abril 7, 2017 by jptan2012

Last January 25, 2012 I wrote a post called FENG SHUI TIPS TO ENHANCE WEALTH LUCK! – Little did I know that it’ll become a constant most read article from the time it was written to this day, weirdly surpassed only by two other articles, namely:

I can understand why people would like the MYTH BUSTER 5 article, but I didn’t realize that a lot of people have been encountering bats.

Anyway, if you notice, what I wrote before is an article about increasing wealth luck. In this article, I will talk about wealth luck and financial luck. So what is the difference? Wealth luck refers more to more than just finances or financial. It refers to properties or even other aspects of getting rich. Financial luck refers to finances, it may be liquid or not. Money luck simply refers to money on hand.

You will notice that this article is going to be mostly a repeat of previous articles but more than that I have updated it and included more tips. You might also see yourself getting directed to older articles, this is when I need to manage the length of this article and will not have time to explain everything here.

When people found out that I studied Feng Shui and do Feng Shui consulting and audit on the side, they always ask me as to how can they enhance their wealth luck. Again, this is a question that can be fully answered by looking at the Bazi (also called Paht Chee, Four Pillars, Eight Characters) chart of the person. The Bazi is basically a formula wherein you look at the luck potential of a person by looking at their birth date and time.

Sometimes, there are specific wealth or financial or money amulet for a person depending on what the Bazi chart showed. However, there are some Buddhist or Taoist amulets that helps enhance wealth, financial, and money luck. Furthermore, there are Feng Shui symbols that will surely do the same.

Here are some of my favorite wealth, financial, and money luck enhancers…

VAJRAPANI RUEL

Lately, one of the Buddhist amulets that have the highest personal miraculous testimonies that have to do with enhancing wealth luck or financial luck or money is the controversial Vajrapani Ruel. I say that it is controversial because other than being considered as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, I think it is also one of the most attacked amulet, but the testimonies speaks for it self.

Here are just some of the more astounding and most read stories of the Vajrapani Ruel shared by my readers.

Please note that the Vajrapani Ruel although has a very high rate of money, financial, or wealth luck enhancement capabilities, it is still largely a protective amulet. But you will also find that it has a wish fulfilling capabilities.

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.

SURANGAMA MANTA AMULET

Although this amulet doesn’t enjoy as many personal testimonies as the Vajrapani Ruel, you will find that several readers still did experienced some wonderful financial luck stories about it. In fact, one of my readers said that she finds the Surangama Mantra Amulet better than the Vajrapani Ruel. You can read the story separately by clicking on the link below.

TRADITIONAL SUTRA AMULET (TSA)

THREE-LEGGED TOAD

The three-legged toad is one of the oldest and most powerful Feng Shui wealth charm or enhancer. However, for some time it was quite forgotten until Lillian Too of World of Feng Shui popularized it again.

My personal experience with the three-legged toad is simply astounding. However, what I want to share with you right now is about a friend’s experience with the three-legged toad. She asked me as to what can enhance her financial luck. After looking at her chart, I saw that her wealth luck is already ripe, but for some reason it hasn’t manifested yet. In fact, she’s currently in dire financial problem. I told her to get a three-legged toad. Furthermore, I gave her a three-legged toad pendant, and 2 months after she got the pendant and the three-legged toads, which she displayed in her house, she won the grand jackpot prize of the 6/42 lotto (in the Philippines). She won more than 4 million pesos! She swears it’s because of the three-legged toad…and I fully agree.

In getting the three-legged toad, please make sure that you place it adjacent to your front door. You can 3, 6, or 9 or more as long as it’s divisible by 3. Make sure that you have one toad facing the door and the other facing inside the house. Just scatter them on the floor; it can be under your table or chair. Never put the three-legged toad on the table they should always be on the floor and make sure that they all have a coin in their mouth!

Wearing a three legged toad pendant is also very auspicious!

You also might want to get to know more about the 3 – Legged Toad from Liu Hai. In a post called: An Unknown But Powerful Taoist Deity Called Liu Hai.

Three Legged Toad

The 3-Legged Toad. Please make sure when buying this you choose a three legged toad, there are some who sells the image of the frog. It’s not the same. It has to be the three-legged toad and choose the one with a coin in its mouth.

SAILING SHIPS

This is also one of the most powerful wealth charm or enhancer. You can place this on your sheng chi direction and or at the entrance of your house, store, or office. But please make sure that it’s ‘going in’ and not ‘going out’. You can also add some lucky coins on the ship.

However, I need to stress that if your element in your Bazi chart is really high in water or a weak fire, the Sailing Ship may not be the best wealth enhancer for you.

I recommended this to a friend whose retail store is just breaking even. He’s not making any money. After placing the Sailing Ship in his store, his sales started increasing. In fact, he now has 3 other stores.

Feng Shui Sailing Ship

In choosing a sailign ship, it would be better if it’s made of metal and colored in gold. Please make sure also that it’s going in and not out.

THE AUSPICIOUS WEALTH VASE

This is another powerful wealth enhancer. In fact, when I went to China, I realized that a lot of my wealthier relatives have wealth vases in their house. Yes, they keep not just one but several. One of my distant uncle has one in his living room, another one in the kitchen, one for each of the bedrooms, so not surprisingly, he also the wealthiest of my relatives in China.

The wealth vase is also both a Taoist and Buddhist wealth enhancer. In fact, to this day you’ll see Buddhist temples doing wealth vase blessings or wealth vase ceremonies.

In preparing a wealth vase you’ll need the following:

Any auspicious looking vase with a big mouth and a large body. It should have a cover also.

Five different cloths that can cover the head of the Vase. The colors should be white (metal), red (fire), blue (water), yellow (earth), green (wood). They represent the five elements.

Five different strings also representing the 5 elements.

3 different beans or grains. (E.g. Coffee bean, Red Bean, Rice Grain)

Whole Tea Leaves

Salt

Sugar

Three different candies or preserved fruits (no menthol).

Soil (preferably from a rich man that you admire).

Money – Five different denominations. (Preferably you ask this from the rich people that you admire.)

Picture of 3 different rich people.

Picture of your dream house.

Picture of your dream car.

Faux diamond or other semi precious stone.

Faux gold coins, ingots, bars.

Incense.

Image or Statuette of a Deity (Guan Gong, Sun Wukong (Monkey G0d), Tua Peh Kong, Dzambhala). They should be made of metal.

Wealth Amulets from a Taoist temple. (Optional)

First you place the soil at the bottom of the vase, followed by the tea leaves, grains, fruit preserves or candies, salt, sugar, picture of the dream house, dream car, wealth people, and then the money.

Put the wealth deity on top of the money. Take note where it’s facing and consider it as the front side of the wealth vase. Make a mark so you don’t forget.

Then fill the wealth vase with faux gems, gold (coins, ingots, bars) and all the other ‘ingredients’. Once they filled place the Taoist wealth amulets. Then cover with the lid. Place the 5 different cloths on top of the lid. Yellow first, followed by white, followed by blue, and then followed by green, then red. Then tie it with the five different color strings.

Place your wealth vase inside the cabinet to keep it hidden. Make sure that the deity inside is not facing out of the house but rather he should be facing in, thus you need to make a mark.

Wealth Vase

The Wealth Vase is used by a lot of Chinese to tap into their wealth luck. In fact, if you go to a house of a wealthy person in China, most likely they’ll have a wealth vase hidden somewhere in their house.

FAUX GOLD BARS OR INGOTS

If you were just building your house, it would be great if you can bury 168 pieces of faux gold coins under your main entrance. By doing this you literally walk on them every time you enter your house, thus you seem like ‘walking on money’. Also, you can put 21 pieces of this faux coins at all the entrance of the bedrooms of your house. You can also put 21 pieces of this faux gold coins under your bed.

You can also litter faux gold coins or faux gold ingots at different parts and corners of your house. This is to signify ‘money everywhere’.

goldgold-ingots-coins-bars2-400x300

Faux golld bars, ingots, and coins.

WEAR AN IMAGE OF A BUDDHA, BODHISATTVA, DEITY, DRAGON, OR TAOIST GODS

Another powerful wealth enhancer is the wearing of the different images of wealth deity. This is better if the pendant is made of gold, because for the Chinese gold is considered as the ultimate symbol of wealth and is also very auspicious.

Some of the suggested deity pendants are the image of KUAN YIN, GUAN GONG (KUAN KONG), DZAMBHALA, MAITREYA BUDDHA (also known as THE HAPPY FAT BUDDHA), and SUN WUKONG.

SALT IN THE WALLET.

Another way of creating good wealth luck is to always have a small packet of sea or rock salt in our wallet. Salt is a great chi cleanser, and having this in our pocket helps enhance wealth/money luck.sea-salt

PUT A WEALTH SIGN OR WEALTH SYMBOL AS WALLPAPER ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE.

Feng Shui is all about symbolism, and putting a symbol of wealth as a wallpaper of your mobile phone helps a little in giving our wealth luck a little boost. You can use either of the following: three legged toad, pictures of gold bars, gold ingots and/or different currencies.

PUT THE WISH FULFILLING MANTRA AS WALLPAPER ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE

I’ve talked about the WISH FULFILLING MANTRA and the power of MANTRA in my previous posts. Putting the symbolic script of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra on your mobile phone helps in actualizing your wealth luck wishes.

WEAR A NINE-EYE DZI BEAD.

A DZI bead is a special Tibetan bead that is suppose to have come from heaven. The DZI beads available in the market now are not original but they work as well. Wearing a 9-eye DZI bead either as a pendant or as a bracelet creates a lot of wealth luck. Strung this with real citrine beads and a jade Piyao (Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pixie) to further enhance its energies.citrine dzi piyao

WEAR A GOLD OR JADE PIYAO

A Piyao (or Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pi Xie, Pixie) is not only a good amulet to appease Tai Suey, but it is also a very good wealth enhancer.

WEAR AN IMAGE OF LIU HAI

It is said that only Liu Hai can manage the three – legged toad, which makes him an excellent wealth enhancer Taoist deity. You can read more about him on an article I have written about him before.

ALWAYS HAVE THE 8 NATURAL WEALTH AND FINANCIAL EHANCER INGREDIENTS AT HOME.

There are some very simple ingredients that we can find at home that can help enhance our wealth and financial luck. You can find the list by clicking here.

LEARN HOW TO USE CITRINE WATER OR CRYSTAL GRID

Citrine is one of the most powerful wealth luck, or money luck, or financial luck enhancer. Learn how to do them by reading the following articles:

Lastly, there is one thing that a lot of us forget. To help enhance wealth luck, financial luck, or money luck, remember that RECEIPTS IN THE WALLET/POCKET CREATE BAD MONEY FENG SHUI. Most of us tend to keep receipts in our wallet or pocket and just forget about it. In fact, it is not surprising that some of us may have some receipts in our wallet that’s been there for months or years. However, you should note that keeping a receipt in your wallet or pocket might create slight bad money Feng Shui. It signifies that you always have bills to pay.

And if you feel that everything is good with you, sustain it with Red and Gold. Learn more about it by clicking here.

Chant – A – Mantra (3h): Daily Mantras to Chant – Karma Cleansing, and Obstacle Destroying Mantras!

Published Hulyo 27, 2016 by jptan2012

I have already talked about one of the most powerful Negative Karma Cleansing Mantras, which always has to be chanted with the Wish Fulfilling Mantra. Today, in the last of the Daily Mantras to Chant series I would like to share with you to powerful Karma Cleansing mantras that comes with extra powers.

vajrsattva-colorOM VAJRASATTVA HUM (Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrasattva) – Vajrasattva Bodhisattva is often mistaken as a Buddha by some Feng Shui – Buddhist writer. I also had this confusion but my Guru Lama confirmed that Bodhisattva Vajrasattva is indeed a Bodhisattva. Vajrasattva Bodhisattva is an esoteric manifestation of Bodhisattva Samantabhadra. Chanting the mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrasattva will help gets rid of one’s negative karma, so in effect it is a karma cleansing mantra. By chanting the mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrasattva will help clear away the obstacles blocking one’s reach for good luck by taking away your bad karma. There is a 100 – syllable version of the mantra of Vajrasattva Bodhisattva, but for everyday chanting this short version will do. Nevertheless, I shall soon write about Bodhisattva Vajrasattva and his 100 – syllable karma cleansing mantra.

OM AH HUM is a mantra that I have written about several times. This mantra is good for cleansing us from our immediate negative karma. Meaning bad karma that we acquired a few hours, or days ago. Chanting this mantra will not only help cleanse one of the immediate negative karma but also it will help the auric energy field of a place. As mentioned, I have written about ‘Om Ah Hum’ before. If you wish to know more about it, you can read them here:

Chant – A – Mantra (3e): Daily Mantras to Chant – Two Powerful Mantras that Brings in Loads of Blessing!

Published Hulyo 16, 2016 by jptan2012

The ‘difficulty’ in chanting a mantra is only at the start of doing it, but once you get used to it chanting it is going to be a breeze. However, what takes time to master is chanting it under deep meditation. Nevertheless, constantly doing should do the job, but you’re biggest battle is fighting frustration, because it might be difficult to achieve that level. But mantras are so powerful that even if you don’t achieve that level, you’re still bound to get some benefit.

These mantras that I’m about to share now is one of the most powerful mantras that I chant everyday. Even though I don’t particularly wish for anything, I still chant this mantra because it helps attract positivity and good energy. It’s partner mantra is a powerful mantra that erases long term negative karma. These two mantras should be chanted together, right after the other for it to be truly effective.

I’m talking about the WISH FULFILLING MANTRA and NEGATIVE KARMA CLEANSING MANTRA. Simply seeing the symbolic script of these mantras is considered auspicious. And chanting them will cleanse you from negative karma and attract wonderful positive energies and fulfill your wishes.

I have written about these mantras and you can read the post – RECEIVE SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS BY TAPPING TWO OF THE MOST POWERFUL MANTRAS – to understand it better. But what I would like to add is that chanting these mantras in conjunction with the mantra of the Bodhisattva Vajrapani – OM VAJRAPANI HUM – or by holding or carrying that Vajrapani Ruel will double or even triple the powerful of these mantras.

The mantras are:

OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT

OM HANU PASHA BHARA HEYE SOHA

Chanting the Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani Creates A Powerful Energy Akin to the Wish Fulfilling Mantra & the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra!

Published Abril 6, 2016 by jptan2012
vajrapani-6

Namo Vajrapani Bodhisattva

The title says it all but I still want to write this short post because it seems like it’s the one that is top most in the minds of my readers, especially after I wrote the preceding article yesterday called VAJRAPANU RUEL STORIES 28, that talks about Sarah one of my readers who happens to be an Overseas Filipino Worker.

The post seems have prompted whether the Vajrapani Ruel is like the Wish Fulfilling Mantra. But it also created a lot of people wanting it. But the truth is the Vajrapani Ruel because of the process of bring it here can be quite pricey, and therefore not everyone can afford it.

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.

I remember that I have written an article before that share that chanting the mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani is almost as good as having the Vajrapani Ruel itself. This particular post today is just a reiteration and expounding of that article.

My reader Sarah got the Vajrapani Ruel and because of that her wishes came true, although she didn’t vocalize them to anybody. What’s even more important, I believe, while she has some wishes she never really dictated as to how it will happen. She just jumps into any opportunity that came across her way. I’m truly happy for her; especially she and I have been through a lot. She was also affected by the people who have been bashing me, and I’m not sure whether she even participated in the bashing or not, but all is well now because we got to meet each other and she experienced the miracle of a Vajrapani Ruel.

But as I mentioned, the Vajrapani Ruel can be quite pricey because of how it was brought out of Tibet and brought to us. But as I have said, one need not despair if one can’t afford to have the Vajrapani Ruel, because one can simply chant the mantra of Vajrapani Bodhisattva and it shall work wonders.

Of course, chanting the mantra with the Vajrapani Ruel is better, but if you don’t have the Vajrapani Ruel, simply chant the mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani – OM VAJRAPANI HUM – and it should work wonders for you.

The process in chanting it is to find a quiet place, and go into a deep meditation, and chant the mantra 108x. The deeper you get the better. My Guru Lama said, and also base on my experience, you should go to the level wherein you’re almost no longer aware of your surroundings. That is the level wherein the mantra is most effective. Having the Vajrapani Ruel is good only because you need not go very deep but the good thing here is as long as you have the heart to connect with Bodhisattva Vajrapani and tap into his power you can always properly chant his mantra.

What’s more?! As people who have the Vajrapani Ruel will testify (or at least most of them) chanting the mantra OM VAJRAPANI HUM creates an energy that is almost similar to chanting the WISH FULFILLING MANTRA and the NEGATIVE KARMA CLEANSING MANTRA. In fact, successively chanting the three mantras will make each mantra even more powerful.

So if you can’t have the Vajrapani Ruel, know that you can still tap into the power of Bodhisattva Vajrapani.

Fifteen Merit Days: A Gift From the Heaven to Help Protect Us From the Ill Effects of the Year! (Part 2)

Published Pebrero 5, 2016 by jptan2012

In my preceding post, which is also the 1st part of this post, I talked about what I call the ‘Fifteen Merit Days’ that will happen on Feb. 8, 2016 to Feb. 22, 2016. As mentioned in that post, it is very rarely that the Chinese New Year and Tibetan New Year will happen at the same time, and because of this it created a special Fifteen Merit Days that can help protect us from the ill effects of the year and also create good karma for us.

Any good deeds are going to be have doubled or tripled merits.

But today, allow me some of the traditional way to earn merits on the said 15 Merit Days.

Chant the following mantras and Buddha or Bodhisattva names:

  1. Amitabha Buddha Mantra (OM AMI DEWA HRIH)
  2. Shakyamuni Buddha Mantra (OM MUNI MUNI MAHAY MUNI YE SOHA)
  3. Medicine Buddha Mantra (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA)
  4. Mantra of the Compassionate Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara / Kuan Yin (OM MANI PADME HUM)
  5. Mantra of Ksitigarbha Buddha (OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM)
  6. Name of Samantabhadra Bodhisattva (NAMO TA XING PU XIEN PUSA)
  7. Mantra of Bodhisattva Manjushri (OM A RA PA TSA NA DHIH)
  8. Wish Fulfilling Manta and Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra (OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT & OM HANU PASHA BHARA HEYE SOHA)
  9. Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani (OM VAJRAPANI HUM)
  10. Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrasattva (OM VAJRASATTVA HUM)

Recite the following Sutras:

  1. The Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra (Heart Sutra)
  2. The Diamond Cutter Sutra
  3. Sutra of the Medicine Buddha
  4. The Noble Stack of Auspiciousness Sutra
  5. The Buddha Speaks of Amitabha Sutra
  6. The Sutra on Impermanence

To do all these, it usually takes me 2 hours to finish all. You can omit some of the mantras or sutras mentioned on the list. However, remember the more you are able to do the more merit you’ll get. I especially recommend this to people who are sick or have a family who are sick and people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger and also those who stay in the Northeast.

It will also be good if you can make vegetarian and fruit offering in the temple, as well as light and incense offering. Prostrating in front of an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva will also likewise add some merits.

Please note that you can add other mantras or sutras. Especially the Mantra of Goddess Tara, Yellow Dzambhala, and Maitreya Buddha.

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.

Clarifications on the Post About the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde

Published Hunyo 20, 2014 by jptan2012

I know that the information shared on this blog the other day about the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde entitled – WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE – & – PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE ILL EFFECTS OF THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE – can be a little overwhelming for a lot of you. Almost immediately I was bombarded by literally hundreds of emails, which I really haven’t read. On top of that, there were also an overwhelming number of sms that was sent to me, not to mention several phone calls.

I thought it is only appropriate to clarify something for everybody’s better understanding of the topic.

First, Mercury Retrograde is as mentioned a Western Astrology concept, I’m not an expert and I don’t have mastery of the said topic, however, I know it to be true because:

  1. I know that Western Astrology to be true. Before I dwelt on Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology, Western Astrology was my first interest. My personal bias is that Chinese Astrology is more accurate but it doesn’t change the fact that Western Astrology has some basis.
  2. Mercury Retrograde is a concept that I have read before. In fact, several years back. There are also some famous people who have claimed that they experienced Mercury Retrograde and that it has affected their relationship and work. Some of these people are Ronald Reagan, Cameron Mackintosh, Shirley Maclaine, etc.
  3. The few times I got to meet some reputable Astrologer, this is something that we’ve discussed. And they are all in agreement that this is true.
  4. Particularly this year, when June set in a lot of people have been complaining to me about their relationship problems and communication problems, which prompted me to do more research about this topic.
  5. I believe that it is stronger this year because of several factors that may affect it to become stronger. This is just theory and I didn’t included in the first two article because it is quite difficult for me to substantiate this, but the stronger Hungry Ghost Month this year might be making Mercury Retrograde stronger also.

Second, the stronger Hungry Ghost Month phenomenon is not something new. Although rare it has been known to happen. And it is different from what happened last year, because last year we had a triple whammy, but this year it is simply stronger Hungry Ghost Month that we have to deal with it, and because it is stronger, it also extends itself. As mentioned, I’ve consulted other Feng Shui experts, particularly my teachers; most of them agree that this is indeed the case. However, I would like to clarify that there is one particular Feng Shui expert that said that they (group that she works with) are not sure whether this is an interpretation concern. Meaning, they saw it but they seem to think that this is still subject to further discussion. They are drawing their unclear stand from the ‘Double Negative Theory’; this theory states that in some aspects of Feng Shui a double negative may be a positive sign.

Third, regarding the cures for the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde, I would like to reiterate that something is still way better than nothing at all.prayer

Lastly, we should not under estimate the power of a prayer. In fact, if you look at the suggested cure, a lot of it is drawing power or protection from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and sutras (Buddhist holy texts that are considered prayer books) and mantras, which is a form of praying. On top of this, I personally believe is also going to create some form of protection. Do good deeds, help people, help people you know, but more than that help people that you don’t know. Do something that is beyond what is JUST COMFORTABLE. The positive energy created by a very good deed is a very powerful protection, and remember a good deed is not measure by how many people you help or by how much you spent. A good deed is measured by sincerity, the amount of compassion you have, and how much of you was shared.

Protect Yourself from the Ill Effects of the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde

Published Hunyo 18, 2014 by jptan2012

In my previous post – WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE, I talked about how the combined effect of the annual and monthly flying stars and of the annual and monthly Bazi or Paht Chee are making this year’s Hungry Ghost Month so much stronger that its effects will be felt 15 days before the first day of the Hungry Ghost month which is on July 27, 2014 up to 15 days after its supposed last day which is August 24, 2014. This phenomenon is made worse with the last Mercury Retrograde periods of the year sandwiching this year’s Hungry Ghost month, leaving us with about 5 challenging months in succession.

At the start of the year, a lot of Feng Shui writers and consultants talked about how the first part of the year will show an abundance of luck for most people, and how towards the end of the year it will get depleted. This was obvious on the year’s Paht Chee chart; but nowhere was a definitive explanation of the cause discussed. It is actually only by accident that I came across a possible explanation. I believe the effects of both Mercury Retrograde and the particularly strong Hungry Ghost Month of the year occurring in succession explains why the energy of the year gets depleted towards the end of the year.

As mentioned in my previous blog post, as I wanted to validate my reading of the year’s annual and monthly flying stars and Paht Chee charts especially in relation to the year’s Hungry Ghost Month, I decided to call first my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong, and my Guru Lama in Singapore. Both of them confirmed the said phenomenon. After writing the previous blog post, and just before writing this one, I decided to call another Feng Shui teacher from Beijing, China, and he also confirmed the said phenomenon. Lastly, I was also able to discuss the matter with other Feng Shui consultants, who likewise acknowledged the phenomenon. Certain experts, however, are not sure whether they will be discussing it through any of their avenues because of two reasons: (1) they are not sure whether the effects are in fact going to be really bad (this goes into interpretations of the resulting calculations) and (2) if in fact the effects will be very bad, they are not sure whether remedies exist to successfully counter the effects.

In the course of writing this entry, I decided to call another Feng Shui teacher. This particular Feng Shui teacher practices Transcendental Feng Shui, which is also known as Spiritual or Third Dimension Feng Shui. Like the other Feng Shui experts that I consulted, he acknowledges the said phenomenon and like my Guru Lama he believes that we can do something about it.

Before I go into discussing how one can protect oneself from this phenomenon, let me explain that the recommendations below are an aggregation of the different recommendations that I gathered from my Guru Lama, Feng Shui teachers, and a few of my own recommendations based on my own experience. Also, it would be of course best if you follow all the recommendations; and, needless to state, following some is better than following none of them. I would also like to point out that it was a reader who since then has become a good friend, DU, who pointed out this direction of how to remedy this phenomenon.

Always have with you the following:

  1. Kuan Yin pendant, preferably with a sutra.
    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.

    Back image of the Kuan Yin pendant. This is the reason why I love these pendants is because they have very nicely crafted image of Kuan Yin pouring healing and auspicious from her magical vase, and at the back it has the Heart Sutra. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to look for this kind of Kuan Yin pendant.

  2. Chong Kwei (also spelled as Chung Kwei) or Mahakala (a wrathful image of Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin) pendant. To be honest I’ve been looking for a Mahakala pendant and I’m unable to find one. For this year, according to my Guru Lama, Mahakala is preferred but no one can deny the efficacy of a Chong Kwei pendant during the Hungry Ghost month. Please take into consideration that he may be partial to Mahakala because he is a Buddhist Lama and Chong Kwei is of a Taoist lineage. Your Chong Kwei should be made of a black stone or gold.

    This is a rare black jade pendant image of Chung Kwei. Was fortunate enough to find one in Beijing, China in a small shop.  Remember in choosing a Chong Kwei or Chung Kwei or Zhung Kwei or Zhong Kwei, always get a something that's made of a black stone or gold. Otherwise, it might not be very effective.

  3. Kalachakra pendant, preferably made of gold or jade or clear quartz.
  4. Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva pendant.

    From my personal collection. A rare Red Amber Ksitigarbha.  Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to get a Ksitigarbha pendant unless you're from Malaysia, Hong Kong, or Singapore.

  5. Wear or carry a Prayer Wheel and spin it as often as you can.
  6. Medicine Buddha pendant or simply carry a Medicine Buddha sutra.
  7. Always carry a Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras or Lama Atisha Amulet with you at all times.

    I decided to put THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS inside a test tube type glass holder that I bought in The Bead Shop, then I included the incense ash, Pink Himalayan Salt inside before sealing it. Thank you to DU, a reader and friend who took this photo.

At home and in the office you should have the following:

  1. Figurine of Kuan Yin.
  2. Figurine of Mahakala or Chong Kwei.

    This is an image of a Mahakala, the wrathful form of Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin. Wrathful form doesn't mean that they are really angry, it means that they are largely use for protection.  This photo was uploaded from Google images.

  3. Figurine of Medicine Buddha or Kuan Kong. These two are optional.
  4. Figurine of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva. It may be pretty difficult to get a figurine of Ksitgarbha Bodhisattva. What you can do instead is print his image, laminate it and put it on your altar. If you don’t have an altar, put them where the other images are.

    In looking for an image of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva either as a pendant or a figurine for your home, you will come across with two versions, the one with the 'Amitabha' hat and the one where He is not wearing any hat and shows his bald head. I prefer the one with the hat, because the one where He is bald is usually associated with the spirits of the dead and connotes that he hasn't attain His Buddhahood.

  5. Put Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras or Lama Atisha Amulet on all the doors and windows of your house that are facing the perimeter of your house (living quarters). If you find it difficult to find these, then the second best option would be to use Kalachakra stickers.
  6. Put a small bowl of rock salt in all the rooms of your house.
  7. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: FIX ALL THE FENG SHUI ERRORS OF YOUR HOUSE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE THE YIN EFFECTS OF ALL THESE FENG SHUI ERRORS ARE MULTIPLIED.
  8. Play mantras in all the rooms if possible.

 

Do the following ‘rituals’:

  1. From July 12, 2014 to Sept. 8, 2014, chant, DAILY, 10 full malas of OM MANI PADME HUM, 10 full malas of the Medicine Buddha Mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA, and 100 full malas of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s mantra. He has several and you can choose which of the following are you more comfortable with:
    1. OM PRA MANI DANI SOHA
    2. OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM
    3. NAMO DI ZHANG WANG PUSA
    4. NAMO KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA
  2. Recite both the Wish Fulfilling and Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra.
  3. Do the usual rituals for the Hungry Ghost Month that I’ve written about in the past.
  4. Try to make offerings at the temple or church or give to charity as often as you can.
  5. In reciting the mantra of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, it will be better if you gaze upon his image.
  6. Light some incense and read the following sutras as often as you can – MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA and KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA SUTRA, which is known as THE SUTRA OF PAST VOWS OF THE EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA. The sutra of the Medicine Buddha is in a blog post that I wrote about Him. Please see link below. If you want a downloadable PDF file of the Sutra of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, please click Earth Store Bodhisattva and KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA SUTRA. The two versions are basically the same but slightly differ in the way it was translated. One of the difference is that in one of them Shakyamuni Buddha is simply called Buddha, which is is the more common term in addressing Shakyamuni Buddha is most of the Sutra translations. This is because it is widely accepted that all sutras that we have now are from the time of Shakyamuni Buddha. A sutra is basically a prayer and word of Buddha written in a story or conversation format.
  7. Avoid the usual things that one should avoid during the Hungry Ghost Month.

For the Mercury Retrograde periods (June 7- July 1; October 4 – 25), wear an image of Kuan Kong or Kalachakra, and if possible, wear or carry with you a Prayer Wheel and spin it as often as you can.

Optional for July 12 to Sept. 8 is also to wear the script of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra.

There are a lot of things mentioned on this post that for some might be hard to understand. For example what really is Hungry Ghost Month, which I didn’t discuss in detail in these 2 posts about the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month, or about Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras, etc. I humbly suggest for you to read some of my previous posts to make you understand things that were discussed here better, or why were such items recommended as a cure.
