Today is your lucky day because I will show you two easy and free ways of enhancing your luck.

I was shopping at a department store today.  While reading the label of a merchandise, a feeble voice seemed talking to me.

I was amazed to find a 90+ old gentleman standing in front of me.  He saw me in a state of bewilderment because I was not sure if he talked to me.  He said, “I just want to talk to you.”

Maybe I looked funny with a pony tail.

To my surprise, there was another 90+ years old woman walking in front of him.  Both just has a walking cane though looked frail.  It is rare to have a 90+ years old couple walking unassisted together.  I suddenly feel great joy and lucky seeing this couple.

In traditional China, anyone over 80 is considered god.  You two are gods to me.  Can I shake your hand?”  I told the old gentleman.

The couple smiled and had shaken my hand.  They walked away happily.

Traditional Chinese believes children under 6 (especially babies) and people over 80 are “gods“.  Children under 6 are not yet “socialized” or conditioned to secular beliefs that block their sixth sense and spirits.  Their “spiritual eye” (the ability to sense spirits/energy) may still function.  Their souls or “spirit” or aura are stronger and purer than adults.   Hence, hugging or holding babies and young kids could could activate your potentials and enhance your energy, spirit, health and luck.   This luck enhancing trick is called “touching aura” (沾灵气).

People over 80 have endured the “wheels” of time and “absorbed” the essence or energies of the sun and moon.  Living through 80+ years is also a sign of blessing and longevity.  Touching the hands of these old folks can bring us good energy and luck.  This luck enhancing trick is called “accumulating blessing” (聚福气).

The easiest way to touch many old folks is to visit homes for the senior.

Go out and touch someone 80 years or older!

I get the following story from the web about a conversation between a venerable monk and a woman.  The original is in Chinese.  I translate it here:

一位女士不停地述說自己的苦難,沒完沒了。

A woman had been talking non-stop about her suffering and grievance.

法師打斷她的話說:你的苦還真多呀!

The master had interrupted her, “You really have lots of suffering!”

女士:別人訴苦最多需要三天三夜,我訴苦需要三年! 

 Woman:    Other people may at most take 3 days and nights, my grievance needs 3 years to spell out!

法師:那是什麼時候的苦? 

Master:   When did your sufferings occur?

女士:前幾年。

Woman:   Within the last few years.

法師:那不是過去了嗎?為什麼還緊抓不放呢?(停了一下)你拉出的糞便臭不臭? 

 Master:   Were these sufferings already passed?  Why do you still hold on to these sufferings?  (Paused).  Do the feces of your bowel movement smell?  

女士:當然很臭啦!poo

Woman:  Of course, very smelly!

法師:現在糞便在哪裡呢? 

 Master:  Where are your feces now?

女士:拉完就沖掉了。

Woman:  I had flushed them away after I was done.

法師:為什麼不把它包起來放在身上?見到人就拿出來告訴別人,說我被這東西臭過? 

Master:   Why don’t you wrap your feces up and carry with you?   Then show and tell anyone you meet that you were smoked by these feces.

女士:那多惡心!

 Woman:   This is nauseating!

法師:對呀!苦難也是一樣,它已經過去了。回憶和訴苦就如同把糞便拿出來向人展示,既臭自己又臭別人!越訴苦越苦,越抱怨越怨。

 Master:   Exactly!  Sufferings and grievance are similar.  They had already passed.   Recollection and grieving about them are similar to showing your feces to people–  smelly to other people and yourself .  You suffer more when you recollect your past suffering.  You grieve more when you talk about your past grievance.

The story above illustrates the Bazi concept of “self-penalty“– people’s tendency to relive their grievance and suffering by talking and thinking about their unpleasant experience repeatedly.  People who listen to their grievance also suffer from this self-penalty like second-hand smoking.  We may call this “second hand penalty“.

Psychologists and psychiatrists like self-penalty because they get paid US$200+ per hour here to listen to people’s grievance.

During my Grand Duke Talisman charity drive in last January, a couple from the Philippines sent me this order (all names and city are renamed for privacy reason):

Dear Sir, 

I would like to order two Grand Duke talismans for 2019. One is for myself and the other for a friend. We are currently both not employed but do what we can to rescue cats from the streets. Hopefully 2019 will be kinder to us and our rescue kitties. 

Attached is the receipt of the donation. 

Thank you in advance! 

Best, 

Susan

**********

Below is my reply to this couple:

You volunteer work for stray cat rescue is good enough for the talisman (no donation needed).  So I give you an extra talisman to help you with job-seeking.  You may print it out in any size (business card size or bigger size) and carry with you (similar to the instruction listed for Grand Duke).

**********

The extra talisman that I had sent is the Lotus Guru Padmasambhava Mantra Wheel.  Usually I offer this talisman to my relatives and students only.  It offers protection from negative annual luck, astrological events and removes misfortunes and obstacles.

Last week, I have received a surprise email from this couple:

Dear Ken, 

In January you gave us a gift of the Mantra Wheel. This is to let you know how it has saved us twice this month. 

About two weeks ago Rick was on his bicycle at around 10pm. He was on a main road in the business district of Main City. As he was approaching an intersection two dump trucks came rushing past him on his left side. The first one cut in front of him to make a right turn at the intersection barely missing him. Luckily he was able to swerve to the right as the second dump truck came rushing past him too. He was shaken but unharmed. He said that if he didn’t swerve the truck would have run over him. It was a close call. And the trucks didn’t stop at all. Rick carries the Mantra Wheel in his wallet at all times. 

Some of the cats rescued

The second incident happened two nights ago. We were watching TV and once or twice we would get a whiff of burning rubber. It wasn’t strong so we thought it was coming from the outside. Checked outside and nothing there to account for the smell. Back inside one of my cats laid down on top of the DVDs player. As Rick picked her up he noticed the smell of burning rubber was stronger in that area. I immediately turned off the TV and player. We found out that the plug of the DVD had a broken prong and the rubber insulation was melting. It’s a good thing we discovered it on time. If it had lasted longer I am almost sure it would cause a short circuit or even a fire. The Mantra Wheel is displayed on a shelf in the room where the TV is in. Thank goodness Coco the kitty decided to lie down on the DVD when she did. 

In both instances, carrying and displaying the Mantra Wheel has saved us from misfortune. And it’s worked so quickly. 

I can’t thank you enough for your kindness! The Mantra Wheel saved us twice already. What a blessing!

Thank you again for giving us the Mantra Wheel. Bless you, Ken! 

Hugs,

Susan

 

*********

While I believe the Lotus Guru talisman may have helped averting their misfortunes, I think what they have been doing– saving the lives of homeless cats helps more in saving Rick’s life and their house.

This incident illustrates one of the most effective methods of deflecting misfortunes is saving lives of any living things.  This couple has rescued 12 homeless cats so far.  Hence, if any astrological reading predicts you have an upcoming “obstacle” or major misfortune, saving a life is an effective way to averting it.  Yes, it is difficult to have the opportunity of saving human lives, but saving animal lives like cats and dogs are easier to accomplish.

Some of you may want the Lotus Guru Mantra Wheel talisman for protection For a donation of US$30 (or US$5 if you are unemployed or cannot afford US$30) to your local Animal Humane or Welfare agency (or any charity that reduces human suffering), I will email you a  Lotus Guru talisman consecrated and blessed in your name.  DO NOT SEND MONEY TO ME.  Send it directly to your favorite charity.  Your donation “activates” this talisman.  This limited offer is good till April 30, 2019 and will not be offered again.

Email your order and proof of donation to:  kenlai88@yahoo.com

Where do all these penalties come from?  I have created the tables below for you to figure out the relationship at a glance:

SOURCES OF PENALTIES

One approach to derive penalties is matching 3-unities (San He) with 3-meetings (San Hui) like additions.  From the tables above, we have the following penalties:

3-Penalties

  • Yin-si-shen  (from 4 sub-cardinal branches)
  • Red is 4 cardinal branches; blue is sub-cardinal; brown is 4 storages

    Xu-chou-wei  (from 4-storages)

  • Zi-mao  (from 4 cardinal branches)

Penalties:

  • Yin-si, yin-shen, si-shen
  • Xu-chou, xu-wei, chou-wei

Self-Penalties:

  • Chen-chen
  • You-you
  • Wu-wu
  • Hai-hai

It will be a long story to explain the above individually.  Please check my past blog articles on this topic for details.

This article assumes you are biological capable of producing a baby AND your Bazi birth chart shows you have children in your chart.  But for whatever reason, you have problem conceiving a baby.  Then we suspect it has something to do with your house Feng Shui.

Here are some Feng Shui tips to help you overcome this baby-making difficulty.

Feng Shui separates your house into 8 major sectors:  N, S, E, W, NE, SE, SW and NW.  Each direction handles some functions and representations.

North stands for water and reproductive system for Feng Shui.  When this sector has Feng Shui problem, the residents will likely have reproductive illnesses.  Hence the North sector of your house must have correct Feng Shui arrangement before you can make any baby.  (Free bonus here:  fix this sector if you have impotence or ED problem)

In Yi-jing (“Book of Changes“), young boy is represented by Gen trigram or NE sector.  Pre-heaven location of Gen is in NW and post-heaven location is in NE.  Hence, if you want a baby boy,  make sure the Feng Shui of NE and NW sector of your house are not messed up.  Otherwise, the boy born will be a weakling.  Gen is earth and NW is metal in nature.

Dui trigram or West represents young girl in Yi-jing.  Pre-heaven location of Dui is SE and post-heaven is West.  Hence, if you want a baby girl, you make sure this two sectors are clean and the appropriate Feng Shui setup, especially if you want a pretty girl.  SE is wood and West is metal in nature.

Before you fix the baby Feng Shui, fix the North side first because you need a working reproductive system before you can make babies.

Ken, you have not told us what is appropriate Feng Shui for these sectors.”

This is simple Bagua Feng Shui.  Consult your Feng Shui teacher or books for details.  Simply put, do not put things that clash the elemental nature of a specific sector.  For example, water is the elemental nature of North sector, avoid putting earth element there and put things that will strengthen water, especially if you have impotency problem  (please donate your saving in Viagra to charity).

Special Chinese New Year Bonus:  North, West and NW also stand for wealth and career luck.  SE stands for academic luck.  Fix up the Feng Shui in these sectors will also help procreation, wealth, career and academic progress.

In Chinese astrology, everyone is assigned an animal sign from a pool of 12 animals based on the birth year.  This article discloses a rarely taught secret of “12 worrisome birth months“.

People who were born in their “worrisome month” of their own specific birth animal sign likely to have the following characteristics:

Personality:  worrisome, gloomy, grumpy, down, pessimistic and feel disaster coming anytime, self-defeatist, “shooting oneself in the foot” type.

Life chances and social interactions:  not getting along with neighbors and family relatives, loner and quiet type, lacking friends, marital problems and career problems.

HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR WORRISOME MONTH

Worrisome month is calculate in terms of solar months (it is about a month slower than western month).  The easiest way to calculate it is to use the bazi-calculator link below, key in your birthday and check the left side table as shown below:

https://bazi-calculator.com/

The example below is to check someone with December 4, 1980 birthday was born in his worrisome month or not.  The birth animal sign is monkey for the person and birth month is pig or hai.

Then we check the list of worrisome month in terms of birth animal sign below.  The worrisome month for monkey sign is pig or hai month.  Hence this person was born in a worrisome month  (potential client for psychologist). 

The followings are worrisome months based on Chinese zodiac animal signs: 

RAT (years born: 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020, 2032, 2044) 

–Worrisome month:  rabbit or mao (second solar month)

OX (years born: 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973,  1985, 1997, 2009, 2021, 2033, 2045) 

–Worrisome month:  dragon or chen  (third solar month)

TIGER (years born: 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022,  2034 )

 –Worrisome month:  pig or hai (10th solar month)

RABBIT (years born: 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023,  2035 ) )

–Worrisome month:  horse or wu (fifth solar month)

DRAGON (years born: 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976,  1988, 2000, 2012, 2024, 2036) 

–Worrisome month:  ox or chou (twelfth solar month)

SNAKE (years born: 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013,  2025, 2037)

–Worrisome month:  tiger or yin month  (first solar month)

HORSE (years born: 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026, 2038, 2050)

–Worrisome month:  rooster or you month  (eighth solar month)

RAM (years born: 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027, 2039 )

–Worrisome month:  dog or xu month (ninth solar month)

MONKEY (years born: 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016,  2028, 2040)

–Worrisome month:  snake or si month (fourth solar month)

ROOSTER (years born: 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981,  1993, 2005, 2017, 2029, 2041)  

–Worrisome month:  rat or  zi month (eleventh solar month)

DOG (years born: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970,  1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030, 2042)

–Worrisome month:  ram or wei month  (sixth solar month)

PIG  (years born: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1994, 2007, 2019, 2031, 2043 )

–Worrisome month:  monkey or shen month  (seventh solar month)

“Ken, can you explain the rationale behind these worrisome months?”

This will take 12 letter-sized pages to explain.  Most of you will have no patience to read and me no time to write.  For the intellectually curious– this has something to do with the interactions between the hidden elements inside the animal signs and the “12 life stages of stem” theory.

Now psychologists have one more tool to diagnose depression– to check if the patient was born in a worrisome month.

In simple terms, “reality follows mind” (境隨心轉 jìng-suí-xīn-zhuǎn) implies one’s perception, intention or thought controls one’s own reality and affects how one acts and behaves.  “Mind follows reality” (心隨境轉 xīn-suí-jìng-zhuǎn) means one’s perception is dictated or manipulated by one’s own reality and becomes a slave of this reality.

This topic may sound “sleepy” to you.  But if you grasp the concepts behind, you will have one foot stepped inside “Club Enlightenment”.

To make these concepts easier to understand, please watch a 98 seconds video below about a 11 years old boy who had failed his exams in China, the land of “tiger moms“:

Click the link below if you cannot see the video
http://kenlaifengshui.blogspot.com/2018/11/reality-follows-mind-vs-mind-follows.html
The boy and his father

The video may run too fast.  Let me recap the contents for you:

  1. This 11 years old boy got 7 points (out of 100) from a school exam.  A Chinese boy with this low and failing score is very likely scolded or beaten up by his parents. Academic failure is a cardinal sin in the mind of traditional Chinese parents.
  2. Surprisingly, his father was very happy to see his boy get 7 points.  He even had bought a car-load of fireworks that costed him US$160 to celebrate the boy’s exam result.
  3. It is because this boy had zero scores in his previous exams.
  4. After this incident, this boy has a change of attitude towards school works and become self-motivated to study.
  5. He got 57 points in an exam held a few days ago.

Originally I have planned to explain the dynamics behind.  But I don’t want to sound like a preacher.  So I let you figure this out and make your own judgement.

Happy thinking (and weekend)!

P.S.  Consult “Diamond Sutra” if you want to know more about “reality follows mind“.
