Life After Death

"Do you believe in life after death?" the boss asked one of his employees.

"Yes, Sir." the employee replied.

"Well, then, that makes everything just fine," the boss went on. "After you left early yesterday to go to your grandmother's funeral, she stopped in to see you."

Ok, further about My Encounter with The Other Kind.

I'm using another method of poker card taught by Mentor Vincent Koh of Singapore Fengshui Centre which is almost similar to the other method introduced in the earlier posts.

As you can see that centre card is an Ace of Spades which is for negative relationship however, in fine tuning the south sector of the circle of cards which is for relationship, it shows a card of Seven of Hearts and Ten of Diamonds which are red cards and denotes warm and positive relationship. But then why, the centre card is an Ace of Spades for bad relationship. That means another kind of relationship, not human, ha-ha, my own interpretation.

I then to reaffirm and check the hexagram constructed from the cards which then gives the hexagram of : Kui 43

▅▅ ▅▅

From Taoist Hua-Ching Ni text of 'The Book of Changes and the Unchanging Truth'

The Guidance: "Resolution dissolves evil forces. One should obtain the cooperation of all righteous forces. Isolated and hasty actions are inappropriate. The advancement of cooperative, virtous energy is wise"

To make it short, you can all read from the text for the rest.

About the rest of the previous poker cards divination method, next month, ha-ha...

Till-then, happy practising what you know, it will sure still works.

Yours Truly,

IQ and EQ

As usual,

About Insurance. Man

A man walks into an insurance office and asks for a job. "We don't need any one," they replied.

"You can't afford not to hire me. I can sell anyone anytime any thing."

"We have two prospects that no one has been able to sell. If you can sell just one, you have a job."

He was gone for about two hours and returned and handed them two checks, one for a $80,000 policy and another for a $50,000 policy. "How in the world did you do that," they asked.

"I told you I'm the world's best salesman, I can sell anyone anywhere anytime."

"Did you get a urine sample?" they asked him.

"Why's that?" he asked.

"Well, if you sell a policy over $40,000 the company requires a urine sample. Take these two bottles and go back and get urine samples."

He was gone for about eight hours and then he walks in with two five gallon buckets, one in each hand. He sets the buckets down and reaches in his shirt pocket and produces two bottles of urine and sets them on the desk and says, "Here's Mr. Brown's and this one is Mr. Smith's."

"That's good," they said, "but what's in those two buckets?"

"Well, I passed by the school house and they were having a state teachers convention and I sold them a group policy!"


Establishing the Facings of a PROPERTY?

Thought I would like to share the following postings....

Subject: [Traditional Feng Shui] more on facing

The following is a compilation of the methods used by Yap Cheng Hai of Malaysia. His Ba Zhai method is different from what is commonly taught by other masters but he's had more than 50 years of experience and findings to support his style. Thus, I feel that there's must be something of value to learn from it:

Main door of house should FACE Ming Gua auspicious directions. Shift or tilt the main entrance to face the good directions if required to ensure the entry of only the auspicious Qi. Ancient feng shui masters did not have to tilt the angle of their doors and it was because town planning was unheard of those days. They could therefore build their homes according to their respective auspicious feng shui alignments. Hence the haphazard streets and layout in some old towns and villages in China. Another case in point: The Yaps visited a Master Leaw in his home in Ganzhai, China, not too long ago. The 85-year-old feng shui master, who is a direct descendant of one of the two disciples of Yang Su Chong, had his door tilted in the early 1990s to tap his most auspicious direction. This is significant because feng shui is here today because of Yang Su Chong, an imperial astronomer and librarian.

The position of the kitchen and direction of the stove is the second most important aspect of a home, after that of the main door. Kitchen is to be located in your Ming Gua inauspicious locations with the stove pointing towards your auspicious directions. The kitchen door must face an auspicious direction. What is the direction of the stove, you may ask. The direction is deemed to be the controls of the stove or the fire mouth, which is where the flame of the stove is controlled. Also, watch out for the directions that should be avoided each year. You will need to be careful when shifting a stove which, in feng shui, is considered a major project. An alternative to moving the stove would be to use a portable stove for that year.

Headboard of bed should point to Ming Gua auspicious directions.

Always sit FACING your Ming Gua auspicious directions.

Bedroom should be located in your Ming Gua auspicious sectors.

Toilet should not be located in your Ming Gua auspicious sectors.

It is alright to renovate the Tai Sui area if you have yet to move in. To offset the Tai Sui, you may consider putting something metallic.

If your children are rebellious, and you want them to listen to you, activate the Yan Nian direction. The ideal would be to locate the child in a room at the parent's Yan Nian location. If this is not possible, an alternative would be to use a room in the child's own Yan Nian location. In both cases, the child should sleep with his head pointing to his own Yan Nian direction. For example, it the father is Kan Gua (Gua number 1) and the child is Zhen Gua (Gua number 3), the child should sleep in the room located in the South (the father's Yan Nian location) with his head pointing to SE (his own Yan Nian direction).

To assist in studies, the main point to consider is the location of the study table and the direction of the study table. In this case, we will want to activate either the Fu Wei or Sheng Qi direction. For example, if the student is a Kun Gua (gua number 2), then his Fu Wei direction is SW and his Sheng Qi direction is NE. Have the desk at the SW room in the SW location of the room and facing either NE or SW. An additional consideration is to look at the fl ying stars of the house. The 1 White star is generally considered the scholarly star. As such, if you are able to face the 1 white star and that direction coincides with the your auspicious direction, this will also contribute to the scholarly success of the person. The 1 White star is at the East in 2006.

Certain masters would determine the facing of a condominium from the balcony, basically standing at the balcony door looking outwards. We have found that this is not necessarily correct. In most cases we would use the actual entrance door of your condominium, standing inside the unit and measuring outwards. Why measure outwards? This is the direction the Qi is coming from. I would usually consider the apartment entrance as the main facing and my case histories have proven me to be correct. The entrance to the respective condo or apartment unit is considered its main door. So, this is where the owner should tap his auspicious direction. On the other hand, while the common entrance to the condo or apartment project is not important to the individual unit owners or dwellers, it is important to the developer. As for the feng shui for a whole floor, consider for a moment: Is everyone on the same floor enjoying the same good fortune or suffering the same bad
luck? I heavily doubt that this would be the case. "In our opinion and experience, the balcony door does not qualify as the main door. This is taking into consideration that the doorway is defined by the action of entering and exiting a property, and in the process, bringing in the qi from outside the property," say the Yaps. One can't possibly walk in through the balcony door, nor can one exit from the balcony door to leave the unit.

I am sure that in every floor there is a mix of both good and bad. This could be more a case of whether the apartment is suitable for the occupants rather than the feng shui of an entire floor. Yes, there is a methodology to choose the best floor and from there, the best unit, but ultimately I am more concerned about your main entrance and master bedroom. Only after these major aspects are put right would I consider looking at the floor and the unit location, which I consider to be more of a fine tuning effort.

The first bit of advice I can provide you is to forget about buying numbers. Some people have the luck and some do not. In your case, I suspect that you do not as you have yet to strike any numbers. So, the first step to wealth is to save the money that you spend on buying numbers.

The notion of house Gua is basically incorrect. I am sure there are people who will argue about this point but they don't have 50 years of accumulated data on this matter. Let us look at the matter properly; feng shui consists of the heavenly or cosmic trinity of Heaven, Earth and Man. Feng shui is a potential, which can only be activated by the human qi. The house is passive and hence cannot have a Gua. Also, from another angle, this would mean that a person who is an E Gua should only use a N-S oriented house and a W Gua person should only use a NE-SW oriented house. This will limit the choice of houses a person can buy. The lamppost opposite you will affect you only if you have a door facing it. As your door is facing SE, the lamppost should not affect you. If you are still worried, you can hang up a Ba Gua mirror with a convex surface on the front of your house pointing back towards the lamppost.

Basic Guide for Water Placement Based on Ba Zhai

Place water in good areas. For example, the best direction and location for a Kun (No 2) Gua person is in the northeast. Based on this school of feng shui, the best place for an aquarium is in the northeast sector of the house.

Colours have a very minimal effect. I would say that if the rest of your feng shui is correct, having the right colour is not too important. On the other hand, if your feng shui is generally wrong, then every little bit helps where ease of mind is concerned. In other words, if you get your room location and bed direction right, don't worry about the colour.

You should put the crystal in a location that is auspicious for you. What is auspicious depends on your Life Gua.

Feng shui is definitely not a religion. In fact, anybody can learn and implement feng shui for himself. It is about tapping the qi, a universal cosmic energy, for a person's well being. Feng shui is also about location and direction. Thus, if something claims to be feng shui but does not have anything to do with location and direction, then it is most probably not feng shui. The art is derived from the ancient Chinese Ba Gua or eight trigrams, which dates back some 6,000 years ago. Feng shui has no bearing with religion. It is similar to the Taoist philosophy, which has its roots in China much earlier than Buddhism, in that everything is cyclical and everything will revert to the tao or nothingness. The link between feng shui and Taoism is very obvious. The scholars in ancient days were all Taoists and you could say that the Taoists practised feng shui. As the general population became more educated, feng shui spread as a form of knowledge and broke free from Taoism.

Grandmaster Yap Cheng Hai puts it aptly: "Heaven Luck is the boat given to you by God. Earth Luck is the wind that fills the sails and the currents of the ocean. Man Luck is the way in which you use the wind and the currents to steer your boat."

According YCH a few hundred years ago books were written by feng shui masters during the Ching dinasty with false information to confuse the masses to spoil their own feng shui.

Subject: [Traditional Feng Shui] how to find facings

I go with Ray Lo or Johnny Chang:

Lum Kwok Hung ??? (Hong Kong): Main door of the unit / house as the facing. If many doors, take the one with the unit number or name of the building.

Li Kui Ming ??? (Hong Kong): For level 1 to 5, use the main entrance of the whole building. Level 6 and above, use the unit's door facing.

Pak Hok Ming ???(Hong Kong): Use the most Yang side of the house, normally happens to be the side with the most sunlight. Must also consider the facing of the main entrance, the side with the most windows, the nearest road, the ming tang, the nearest water feature and also nearby mountains / hills (to determine the sitting).

Raymond Lo (Hong Kong): The side with an open space in front will be the facing of the house. It must also be assessable from outside (e.g. In the case of a beach house, despite having wide windows facing the sea at one side (open space), this side cannot be considered as the facing since it is not assessable by land).

Yeung Dengkwong ??? (Hong Kong): The main entrance of the whole building. If in terms of an apartment building, the chart is drawn using the facing of the main entrance of the whole building. The best unit is then chosen from this chart of the whole structure. Using the same chart, it will then be superimpose on the unit's floor plan to allocate the kitchen, the masterbedroom, etc. Finally, another chart is created based on the facing of the unit itself. This second chart is for evaluating the external forms and Castle Gate ?? only. He reached this conclusion after evaluating the other methods in details and many experiences. This method is said to have the least conflicts and thus most accurate.

Joey Yap ??? (Malaysia): The facing of the whole building. An apartment building is simply just a big house with many rooms. Therefore, all units will have the same facing.

Lynn Yap (Singapore): Must consider as a whole, from exterior first then interior. In the past, she used the main entrance of the house or unit as facing but realized that it was not very accurate.

Yap Cheng Hai ??? (Malaysia): Main door of the unit / house as the facing. HE's one of the few masters that uses the main door of the structure, to the extent of a apartment's door. Probably he based it on the book ????.

Joseph Yu (Canada): Must consider as a whole. Apartments are to be viewed as a stand alone house. The front door plays no role in determining the facing.

Lilian Too (Malaysia): For houses, use the most Yang side of the house, normally happens to be the side with the best unencumbered and spectacular view. For apartments lower than 9th floor, use the facing entrance of the whole building. Do not use the facing direction of the apartment door. If the unit is on the 9th floor and above, the side with a view from the balcony or patio will be used as the facing since this is akin to living in the high mountains and the Qi distribution will be different.

Larry Sang: The open side of the house is the facing and the closed side is the sitting. You can also think in terms of Yin and Yang. The Yin side is the sitting and the Yang side is the facing. The door does not determine the orientation of the house. The architectural intent is also something that can be used to determine the sitting and facing. Apartments often have the balcony or large windows off the living room as the facing and the hallway or door as the sitting. Remember that the main rule in Feng Shui is it depends. Each house needs to be looked at individually and a determination as to the sitting and facing is both key to the reading and something to be very careful with.

Johnny Chan ??? (Hong Kong): The main entrace of the whole structure. This is because in the ancient scriptures, it is said that Qi will ???? flow close to the ground, thus the main door that opens on ground level will have the most Qi entering the structure. This is true even though you maybe staying in a high-rise apartment building. As for deciding which is the main entrance of the building, it should NOT be based simply on the size of the door or that it is frequently used by most people. This is because when a structure was erected, the facing and Qi entrance were already established at the same time irregardless any human was using the entrance or not.

Liang Chao ?? (China): Use the most Yang side of the house or apartment.

Often when a practitioner gets negative feedback from a reading, it is because the sitting and facing where incorrectly determined.

Geography or Geomancers.

As usual,

Generation Gap

A boy was assigned a paper on childbirth and asked his mother, "How was I born?"

"Well honey..." said the slightly prudish mother, "the stork brought you to us."

"Oh," said the boy, "and how did you and daddy get born?"

"Oh, the stork brought us too."

"Well how were grandpa and grandma born?" the boy persisted.

"Well darling, the stork brought them too!" said the mother, by now starting to squirm a little.

Several days later, the boy handed in his paper to the teacher who read with confusion the opening sentence: "This report has been very difficult to write due to the fact that there hasn't been a natural childbirth in my family for three generations."


A posting by kv_Yang from one of my yahoo groups, [Traditional Feng Shui]

'From the reading of GPS on the Dragon's Xue Spot, we are not only given the Degrees of Luopan for us to audit fengshui, but also the reading for us to check on the Google Earth to help us improve and confirm the auspiciousness of a Fengshui Formation. The Google Map shown on the left quoted from www.mqfengshuiacade, we can clearly see the Ancestor Mountain comes from the Xun (Sheng Wang) direction originates from Xun Mountain on the left, its in-coming Dragon all the way from the Ancestor Mountain (Shao Jun Shan) to the Head of Dragon (Ru Shou Long) via the Parents Mountain (Fu Mu Shan) clearly indicated by its "Long Mai", the Dragon Vain of the In-coming Dragon as shown on the Google Earth Map extracted.

From the In-coming Dragon shown on the Google Earth Map, there are two Waters follow Dragons coming down from the Valley -- with the Ding Water (Wife) follows Geng Dragon (Husband) from the Valley on the right, left-turning Yang Water as Chang Sheng Xun Si Water and right-turning Yin Water as Geng You Di Wang Water from the left Valley which drains down water from a Reservoir (Water Dam as shown from the Google Earth Map) on the Geng You Sector. So, with the help of GPS and Google Earth, it makes our fengshui audit scientific and much easier to walk the Dragon to come the following conclusions: - 1) It is a Sheng Wang Dragon
2) It is a Real Dragon and Real Dragon Xue
3) The Dragon Qi is Yin Yang Balanced, i.e Geng Dragon gets accomplied by its Wife, Ding Water follows Dragon.
4) A perfect FS JU of Internal Qi: "To Nui Na Geng Ting Zhi Qi"
5) A perfect Fengshui Formation of External Qi: "Xun Geng Gui, all are Wu Qu Positions"

The chosen piece of land to build a Yin (House) Zhai requested by our Clients, the Xue Seating of the Yin House on the "Long Jing Qi Zhong" of a Hill slopes like a Head of Turtle, the whole piece of Hill is just like a Turtle comes up after the Ru Shou Long of the Host Dragon. So, it¡¯s a very ideal place to build a Yin Zhai because the In-coming Dragon is a Sheng Wang Dragon from the Xun direction, the Ming Tang infront of the Xue Spot is very flat, broad and wide as a Flat-landed Dragon all the way to the sea with High-landed Dragon at the back where the proposed Yin (House) Zhai recieves good ranges of Mountains at the back of Xuan Wu Fang from auspicious sectors of Yang, Chang Sheng, Guan Tai, Lin Guan and Di Wang Mountains. It is a perfect Fengshui Formation of "Xun Geng Gui, all are Wu Qu Positions" and "To Nui Na Geng Ting Zhi Qi" where the Host Metal Geng Dragon coming in all the way from Sheng Wang Position as "Long Zhen Xue De" (Real Dragon and Real Xue) marries with its Wife Ding Water follows Dragons as Chang Sheng Water, Yin Yang Internally Married to produce auspicious and strong Internal Dragon Qi and Yang Water of Chang Sheng Water externally marries with Yin Di Wang Water right-turning, going out to Mu Storage to accumulate auspicious External Chang Sheng and Di Wang Water Qi and Yang, Chang Sheng, Guan Tai, Lin Guan and Di Wang Mountains External Qi in the Ming Tang to effect the Internal Qi to produce auspicious results of having many descendents, promotions, wealths and good health for the descendants of the Yin (House) Zhai, the auspiciousness will last for many hundreds and thousands years because the Internal Dragon Qi is very strong and so long the Mountains and Waters do not change their positions as shown on the Google Earth Map. Since it is a perfect fengshui formation of a Yin Zhai, thus the auspiciousness will be equal through-out all the members of the family.

Hope you enjoy our posting!

So what you think about learning Ying Zhai Fengshui in English?

The Living Hell

A casual conversation with Yi Jing after a chat with my mentor, Mr. Vincent Koh.

Mentor: ‘It is interesting that sometimes when I am in the vicinity of hospitals, it reminds me of the living hell not unlike that of our Haw Par Villa (A tourist Icon in Singapore, the picture above) where the eighteen levels of Hades is portrayed.’

Me: ‘I don’t get it, Mentor’

YJ: ‘Don’t you see a similarity of being cut up here and there as in Hell or go through sufferings in a hospital when we meet with a karmic debt to be paid?’

Me:’ Oh Master, we are now doing fine why suddenly you take over this topic’

YJ :’ No, It’s not that, it’s just that sometimes we take things for granted and complain about our unhappiness in life as we have not come to that stage. But then, what is unhappiness? Shouldn’t we be grateful that we are still in Heaven and that we should practise virtue as we are not unlike Heavenly Beings on Earth with a thought for those going thru that in life.’

Me: ‘Oh no, Master, I do not want to carry on this topic’

YJ:’ Why?’

Me: ‘I don’t know whether I have any karmic debt? And I don’t like the idea of it if I should have one.’

YJ:’ Then you should face reality. Even if you have one, before the debt is being asked, you cultivate virtue as in causes and effects, you might instead find it pleasant when the time is up’

Me: ‘Mmm, let me think about it and we will carry on another fine day, Master’

Ha-ha, do you get it when the time is up?

Me, I will surely let you know, ha-ha, hah. One Fine Day.

Till-then, cheerio!!!

Good News. My Desktop should be ok by 3 weeks time, ha, I can then post with chinese alphabet, ha-ha.....

Of Angels and Demons

Hi folks,

As usual,

A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around with a fly swatter.

"What are you doing?" she asked.

"Hunting Flies," he responded.

"Oh!, Killed any?" she asked.

"Yep, 3 males, 2 Females," he replied.

Intrigued, she asked. "How can you tell?"

He responded, "3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone."

To continue on the third dimensions, ha-ha….

Taken from Taoist Master Hua-Ching Ni, ‘The Book of Changes and The Unchanging Truth.'

‘The truth of spirit is very different from ordinary descriptions in literature and religion or general imagination. The existence of spirits is a fact of nature.

The difference between spirits and ghosts is an important one. The two great spheres in the subtle realm are the divisions of yin and yang. Spirits belong to the yang category. Ghosts, on the other hand, belong to the yin category and are of a much heavier energy.

Spirits offer their services by staying with their spiritually developed human friends. They can also disclose the personality of a new acquaintance and warn habitually kind and tolerant people of impending danger. A gathering of numerous spirits can accomplish what human beings never could. They can stop an electric current for as long as they wish, be mischievous with a mechanical system (Hmn, wonder if the Singapore Flyer had anything to do with it?) or control certain points of the human nervous system and cause paralysis for protective reasons or other intentions.

The significant difference between spirits and ghosts is that spirits are essential, light and pure whereas ghosts are the opposite. Spirits come from the formation of nature: they are pure and mild.

Ghosts are souls that have recently departed from human life and are still contaminated with their life experience. A spirit is much lighter than a ghost. Ghost usually sinks into the ground. (Heavenly Qi and Earth Qi?)

Since Ghosts have ‘heavy’ energy, they sometimes appear in human forms at night and attack people. Actually this seldom happens. The sudden interference of an ill-intentioned ghost can cause vehicles or machines to completely stop and thus create land or air accidents. The ghosts in an inferior negative sphere are more apparent and can easily reach a person’s level of emotion, such as fear, or, of feeling, such as becoming chilly of a sudden. (Probably refer to weak will people)

Troublesome spirits haunt troublesome people. The kind of energy a person has will attract a spirit of like energy. Thorough spiritual purification can have a good effect on these problems. (If you will to meet one such spirit in a fengshui audit)

Sometimes people who wish to strengthen their spiritual power and augmented their spiritual protection find an incorrect spiritual source. This people bring trouble on themselves through their own ambition.’

Spirits and ghosts, especially real demons, can incite riots mob and through morally undeveloped people who come together as a mob and who are often used without even knowing it. These people carry out the evil wishes of such spirits in order to persecute one who is righteous and has fulfilled his moral duty and actually protected people from the harm of these demons and evil spirits. In most cases, demons and evil spirits cannot carry out these actions themselves. They must be enacted through morally undeveloped people whose inner darkness is reflected in their ignorance and vicious behaviour. The practice of virtue protects one from this level of evil spiritual influence or interferences ( as you can invoke kind spirits to help you, my quote for those in bracket ).'

Till-then, cheerio!!!

Still have not send my desktop CPU for repairs. And as I say, I sure hate the squeezed keyboard on my lap-top....

Black Magic?

Hi my fellow practioners,

Been down lately for five days with a strange kind of magic after a fengshui audit about a week ago for a friend. Didn’t suspect anything to do with it until I remember that the year before, I had undergone an unusually bad cycle of luck after an audit on the same house. It was in Spring that the audit was done and which was supposed to be a favourable period of luck for me but had turn out otherwise for health. However as last year was not a favourable luck pillar for me, I had dismissed the audit as having anything to do with it. For Bazi, I am strong yang water element and I have a complete water seasonal combination which was unfavourable last year. How I wish I was Strong Earth Element as I would have at least hit 2 or 3 Toto jackpots (Lottery) and became a millionaire last year. Well, that’s life…Ha-ha. When you want it, you can’t have it.

Well back to my strange illness, I had not wanted to ask the client about it as it would have been too sensitive. Anyway about the spiritual background of the client, the client had worshipped Thai Deities and one of them was the Guman Thong, a child idol or read the following part taken from an article by Wilson Yong of www.

'In Thailand its a very common to see numerous business establishment having an idol of a child called Guman Thong, it is widely worshipped it seems like a cult. The idol is created in the form of a lovely young child, named Guman Thong but it's really a ghost!
Khun Paen is a legendary figure (1491-1529); he was born in Suphanburi Province (some 70 km. northwest of Bangkok) but grew up in the close bordered Kanchanaburi Province. Khun Paen was the first who created Guman Thong. He brought the dead baby from the womb of the dead Bua Klee, one of his wives, to the Temple outer area within the chanting hall where the Buddha image is placed. The Temple and its outer area are so sacred place that no mighty ghosts or spirits can enter. Based on the legend descriptions, Khun Paen was chanting some sacred mantras to invoke the spirit of Guman Thong while roasting the dead baby on the fire.

Creating Guman Thong in the ancient time can be terrifying. The practitioners had to go to the cemetery alone in the night, dig up the corpse, cut the corpse's abdomen removing the dead baby out, and then proceed directly to the nearest temple outer area for the roasting processes. That's the safe place to protect the ghost mother from trying to bring her baby back. So only the strong-mind person who possesses the advanced magical knowledge to subdue the ghost may do this.

Bear in mind that Guman Thong is actually a dead infant. But it is now created in the form of a young child with various materials, such as wood, bronze, ivory tusk, plaster, and various materials. The main purpose of creating Guman Thong in the ancient time is for protecting the owner. The young child ghost could be activated with mantra to fight the owner's enemies or to protect the owner's treasures. Almost all the present-era Guman Thongs have been created for wealth and for fortune purposes,

Worshipping Guman Thong needs consistent practice. He will be a great fortune bringer.

Some compassionate practitioners invoke the souls of aborted foetus to liberate them. The souls of aborted foetuses are in great suffering, they are lost earth bound ghosts. These practitioners chant a specific mantra to invoke and summon their souls to their altar where an idol of a child is placed. The soul of the aborted foetus actually resides in the idol. Offerings are made daily includes milk, toys, sweets and other edible foods. By offering these aborted foetuses a place to reside and with daily recitation of mantra’s the practitioners transfer their merits to these souls and pray that they are liberated.'

From another source,

'The Guman Thong is in fact a spirit of a child that has been captured in the idol by a medium or monk that understands and has knowledge of arcane spells and incantations. It is thought that these spells are preserved by the spirits in the Himpan forest (known to us from Thai literature)

There are two types of child spirit – the spirit having fate and karma from a past life and the spirit without fate and karma. If a spirit previously had bad karma then it is their karma in this life to be exploited by practitioners of magic or controlled by withayathorn. (a guru of black magic) They are susceptible to become Guman Thong.

The other type of spirit is that has no previous karma and cannot become a Guman Thong. They will be re-born according to karma.'

Anyway, the client have business dealings with Thai people and accordingly, had some major dispute over some deals in Thailand. The year before was a very bad year for him which though after checking his bazi, can’t find anything wrong with it and I had then concluded that it was the house fengshui bad flying stars causing the problem.

Interestingly, after having enough with all this strange health problems which had leads to insomnia, stomach upsets, loss of appetite, etc I decided to ask the I Ching using poker cards. The centre card was an ace of Spade signifying a very bad relationship. With what? That I would leave it to you to decide. Anyway about the poker cards divination, I would have to carry on later. Now how? More or less, I had the impression that I had offended something or whatever it is. I can’t ask the client, he might answer it truthfully if he is aware or he might panic as he had just recovered from his bad patch. He had no worry about his house as I had given him a consecrated wind chime for protection from spiritual influence. The I Ching had made me lend it to him temporary at that time but it had end up with the wife having strong belief in it after his luck had started to improved, had then decided to give it to him as a gift instead. I don’t care, My dear I Ching, you better give me something times ten the value back, ha-ha…just kidding.

I had then invoked the tarot spells that I had been taught. Had thought of putting up a Mao Shan or Taoist Talisman at my main door but I had not wanted to give any misleading impression to my mother who is living with me alone as she might worry. She already had been observing that I had not been feeling well and had been making TCM herbal soups, you know, old people are like that. Now as I ‘m feeling much better today finally after invoking the tarot spells for protection from the spirits against those who are against me now, let’s talk about magic for today. Nah, not encouraging you folks to believe in spooks and hula boola stuff. Just sharing my experience, ok?

Now what is magic? I’m not talking about stuffs from David Copperfield, let’s look at it as what is a spell instead. Can we with all our technology and progress today be expected to believed in it or treat it as an escapism from the unexplained phenomena that we meet with in our daily life. There are many theories about why and how spells work. Some people believed that supernatural forces are involved, others that the unconscious mind is a powerful instrument that responds to symbols and ritualistic actions in a very special and interesting way. In other words, a spell is simply a way of concentrating the power of the mind in order to bring about a desired result. Anyway, modern science still have not figure out why an average person uses less then 30% of our total brain cells. Now about Black magic, it’s more about the ethics of magic. The basis of magic should be to bring about greater freedom, love and happiness. When hatred or gains at the expense of others as emotions is used to create negative changes in the lives of others, this is often called black magic. When a individual moves down this path, he or she sows the seeds of his or her destruction.

Black magic not only uses magical forces for selfish ends but is also generated by emotions such as hatred, fear and ignorance, and has as it ultimate aim the harming and destruction of humanity. Those who choose to practise such magic may experience short-term gains; they may well get their revenge or attain wealth very quickly. However, in a relatively short space of time, the negative forces they are sending out will return and act against them, but even stronger.

About love spells in Tarot, yes we have it but as a wise master have said ‘ A wiser policy is to let the identity of your future love be determined by the higher spiritual forces that watches over us, and guide us whenever we give them the chance. To interfere with the free will of another for our own gratification takes us close to black magic, no matter how much we may feel justified in doing so, or how desperate we may be. Yes, by the way, I’ m a white magic practioner so don’t worry that I will put a hex on you, ha-ha. Have to learn it for self-protection from my sole view point.

Till-then, cheers!!!

The Marshall Plan?

Politics Jargons:Corned Beef

A man went into a deli shop and took a seat at the lunch counter. "Give me a corned beef sandwich," he ordered.

"Corned beef sandwich is not on the menu, but I can give you a sandwich with corned beef in it, like our Midnight Special."

"What's a Midnight Special?"

"A triple decker with corned beef, tongue, bologna, tomato, lettuce, onion, pickle and mayonnaise, on toasted raisin bread."

"Could you just place a piece of corned beef between two slices of white bread and serve it to me on a plate?"

"Why, sure!" Then, turning to the sandwich man, he sang out: "One Midnight Special. Make it one deck, hold the tongue, bologna, tomato, lettuce, onion, pickle and mayonnaise, and make the raisin bread white, untoasted!"

Hi Folks,

See the bird the last few times when I ain't around, it means I'm on LEAVE, flapping around, ha-ha. Anyway, I'm getting bored with metaphysics, let's talk about something else,



Met up with one of my learned friends today, an economist who expounded that two countries, Japan and Germany who lost the World War 2, are in the top economic forces to be reckoned with in the world today because of the Marshall Plan implemented by the US and that the US economy should learn from it. Not clear with all his jargons, same mutual feelings when I try to explain wealth creation with the water theory in Fengshui to him. Did some non fengshui researches and came up with this amusing article by a Pulitzer Prize Winner. If you hate economics, I suggested you skip it to avoid wasting your time, ha-ha..
