When NOT to change your house Feng Shui

There are 3 types of people in this world:
1.  People who do not believe in Feng Shui.
2.  People who blame Feng Shui whenever their fortune slides and modify their Feng Shui.
3.  People who are successful and maximizing the Feng Shui of their houses continuously.

Below are some precautions to observe before changing the Feng Shui environment of your house.

Do NOT alter your Feng Shui:

1.  if you are currently enjoying good fortune, frequent celebrations and wealth luck
-- don't fix anything if nothing has broken and don't be greedy for more fortune.  This includes your yin Feng Shui (tomb).

2.  if you have pregnant woman in the house
-- Chinese believe remodeling and construction work will hurt the gestation environment of the fetus.  A common attribution to cleft lip baby is construction and operations of sharp objects in the house during gestation.  This includes not moving to another house during a pregnancy.

3.  if you have severely sick patient in your house
--  a severely sick patient is already low in vital energy and  would suffer greatly if clashed by unfamiliar new energy/ qi. 

4.  if your house has severe sha-qi or spiritual disturbance
--  with severe sha-qi (negative energy), change made in one area can easily induce other unintended consequences.  With spiritual disturbance (ghosts or karma-debt related), Feng Shui remedies will have little effect and may provoke even more repercussions.

Sometimes, obstacles and bad fortune are attributed to one's bad annual or 10-years luck periods of your Bazi or 4-Pillars chart.  You may want to consult a Bazi reader to make sure your current misfortune is NOT due to your destiny before doing any Feng Shui changes.  Safety and health are more important than enhancing fortune or wealth luck.

If you want to learn more about how to handle misfortune embedded in your birth chart, please consult the following courses:

Bazi: how to check career changes

How to check career or occupational change from one's Bazi or 4P chart?  Please check below for details:

1.  When power star (zheng-guan, pian-guan or qi-sha) is clashed, combined or controlled ("ke").
-- "Power" stars are what control the daymaster (DM).  For example, the power star of someone born in an earth day will be wood.  Power star stands for authority and career.  It signifies changes in career when power star has interaction with luck periods.

2.  When resource star (zheng-yin, pian-yin) is clashed, combined or controlled ("ke").
-- "Resource" stars are what nurture the daymaster (DM).  For example, the resource star of someone born in an earth day is fire.  Resources stars stand for documents, study, transfer, certificate, rights/ privilege and superior.  When resource star has interaction with luck period, it implies changes in authority, transfer, and events related to older generation/ superior.

3.  When "traveling horse" star (yin-tiger, shen-monkey, si-snake, hai-pig) shows up in luck periods.
--Traveling horse stars stand for mobility and movement.  When traveling horse star shows up in one's luck period, it implies changes in living and working environment.  Below is how to find your traveling horse star.

If your year or day branch in your 4P chart
: is yin, wu or xu, your traveling horse star is shen-monkey
: is si, you or chou, your traveling horse star is hai-pig
: is shen, zi or chen  your traveling horse star is yin-tiger
: is hai, mao or wei  your traveling horse star is si-snake

Remedy for Rabbit clashing Rooster: 2017 Grand Duke Talisman Charity Drive

Here is one spiritual remedy for people with rabbit clashing rooster or house clashing Grand Duke direction--  Grand Duke talisman.

I have already posted the contents below a month ago.  But people do not seem to have read it because I have reader asking for the talisman charity drive.  So I repost it here again for your convenience. 

2017 GRAND DUKE GENERAL TANG JIE  
2017 is Ding-you or year of Fire-rooster. Grand Duke for the year is General Tang Jie who was a military officer in Song Dynasty (618- 907).  Tang was born with super physical prowess.  He was humble and respected by local folks.  He had passed the government military officer exam and become a military officer.   

General Tang was ordered to stop the bandit disturbance in the South.  He had neutralized the bandit chief and decapitated 58 bandits.   Local people were no longer under the threat of plunder and killing.  The government had rewarded Tang with higher rank and silver.

2017  GRAND DUKE TALISMAN FOR BAZI CLASHES

Ding-you or year of  fire-rooster can be challenging for people with Gui-mao or Xin-mao pillar in their Bazi charts because these pillars "fan-yin" or "battle" with both the stem and branch of the Grand Duke.  It is especially serious if your day-pillar is  Gui-mao or Xin-mao because it means something may happen to you or your spouse.

In addition, besides the year branch, if any of the branch in your Bazi chart has a mao-rabbit, that branch is also clashing Grand Duke.  The effect may be seen from the people and events represented by that branch location.  For example, if you have a mao month branch clash, the effect may happen to daymasters' parent or sibling.

 Here are the four groups of people who need Grand Duke Talismans:

 1. "Fu-yin" or same animal sign of Grand Duke 值太岁-- people with rooster sign
ROOSTER : years born-- 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981,  1993, 2005, 2017  
Symptoms: obstacles, stagnation or running "reverse" instead of forward and not suitable for travels.  Damages in career and wealth luck and relationship.  Rooster also "self-penalizing" itself when runs into rooster year.

 2. "Fan-yin" or "clashing" the animal sign of Grand Duke 冲太岁-- people with rabbit sign
RABBIT: years born-- 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011  
Symptoms: big fluctuations in luck, wealth, career, relationship and health; traffic accident, hurt by metal object, sickness, surgery, losing competitions/wealth, moving, death,  negative romance, quarrels and etc.
SPECIAL NOTE:  Mao-you clash is a powerful clash involving wood and metal battling-- negative romance causing serious financial loss or even death or traffic accidents and surgery (injuries by metal).  If your chart has zi-rat, it will get even worse.  If your chart has both zi-rat and wu-horse, pump up your life insurance policy because you have all the 4-cardinal clashes elements-- zi, wu, mao and you.

 3. "Hai" or "prosecuting" the animal sign of Grand Duke 太岁-- people with dog sign
DOGyears born-- 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970,  1982, 1994, 2006  
Symptoms: backstabbing at work, bad interpersonal relationship, jealousy from others, emotional problems, success slips away in the last minute and low Feng Shui luck.

 4. "Po" or "damaging" the animal sign of Grand Duke 太岁---- people with rat sign
RATyears born-- 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008
Symptoms: interpersonal relationship problems, negative romance, marital problem, backstabbing, skin and nervous system problems-- due to over-confidence and extreme/ radical positions.

 GRAND DUKE TALISMAN FOR FENG SHUI REMEDY
1.  House violating Grand Duke

Click to enlarge
In 2017 ding-you year, if your house faces You-rooster mountain or W2 (262.5 to 277.5 degree, west) direction, your house is said to be "violating Grand Duke."  House violating GD will affect the overall luck, health and well-being of the people living inside.  The remedy is either avoiding movements, construction, earth-digging and demolition there or put up a Grand Duke talisman facing W2 direction.  The opposite side of Grand Duke is Year-breaker (Sui-po, E2 or east).  This location should avoid digging and activities too. 

Even with the GD talisman, if you need to do construction, you still need to do a date-selection for an auspicious date and start digging on a non-GD direction and finish last on the GD direction.  I have checked through the year of Rooster and compiled a construction calendar with dates that can over-ride the effect of Grand Duke, San-sha and 5-yellow star.  Please look for info in this blog in the near future. 

2.  Desk violating Grand Duke 
If your desk or wherever you sit for an extended time faces You-rooster mountain or W2 direction, you can put up a Grand Duke talisman there for protection.  It is not auspicious to face the Grand Duke direction.  It weakens your competition power in business/career and examinations. However, if you arrange your seat so that W2 will be at your back (and put a Grand Duke talisman there), you will get Grand Duke as support and is good for competition and business. 

3.  Moving direction violating Grand Duke
If you move to a new house or residence, the relative direction from your old house to the new house is facing W2 grand Duke direction, you are considered "violating GD".  Remedy will be choosing an auspicious date to move or at the least, choose a different route of traveling, like driving to a different direction in the beginning, take a break for 15 minutes or more and then to the final destination.  This will convert the original GD direction to a non-GD direction. You may carry a GD talisman too. 

4Marriage direction violating Grand Duke
If you get married and the relative direction of your new marital residence to the old residence is facing SW2 grand Duke direction,  you are considered "violating GD".  Remedy will be choosing an auspicious date to move or at the least, choose a different route of traveling, like driving to a different direction in the beginning, take a break for 15 minutes or more and then to the final destination.  This will convert the original GD direction to a non-GD direction.  You may carry a GD talisman too.

 GRAND DUKE TALISMAN OFFERS
 This year we use digital delivery of Grand Duke Talismans because "snail mail" is slow and prone to losses.  Ken Lai will create a GD Talisman with user name, city and country imprinted, bless and "activated" individually on screen digitally.  This unique activated GD file will be emailed to you.  You can print as many copies as you want (but for one unique-named person or house only).  In this way, you can replace soiled or damaged talismans.  You can carry one talisman in your wallet and post one in your home and/or office for Feng Shui remedy.  You get more "mileage" from a single donation this way.

The offer is the same as previous years: your charity donation of US$30 or more to any legitimate local or international charity will get you a specially blessed Grand Duke talisman with your name inscribed (see below for special rate for countries with lower annual income per capita).    Here are some sample charities suggested in the past drives:
  • homeless shelter
  • Save-the-Children (www.savethechildren.org)
  • UNICEF (United Nation Children's Fund)
  • Smile Train (www.smiletrain.org)
  • children hospital
  • food shelves/soup kitchen
  • Red Cross
  • animal shelter/ humane society
  • Doctors without border (https://donate.doctorswithoutborders.org/onetime.cfm)
Donation made to help alleviate an urgent human/ animal need or suffering (e.g., feeding the hungry, tornado/ typhoon victims or homeless) gets you more karma credits than donation for public good or improvement of public life like church/ temple or public radio/TV.

If you are worried about privacy issues and future solicitations-- please be assured that I will not email you in the future. You will send me NO money. You send your money directly to your favorite local or international charity.  You do NOT need to purchase any additional item from me or anyone else. No future solicitation of any type will be sent to you.  This offer is for people who have no access to Daoist temples.  Please support your local temple if you have access to one.

If you need more than one Grand Duke Talismans, here is the discount schedule:
 --one talisman US$30 donation (US$5 if you are unemployed/under-employed)
 --two talismans US$50 donation ($10 if unemployed /under-employed )
 --three talismans US$60 donation ($15 if unemployed /under-employed )
(you may go to www.xe.com to calculate the equivalent of US$30 to your local currency)


NOTE:  People from countries with annual personal income per capita income below US$8000.00 can use the "under-employed and unemployed rate".
 
Talisman that is grounded with a charitable event works more effectively because it has an exchange of one type of energy for protection energy.

To claim your talismans and application instructions, please forward your donation receipt with the talisman recipient names and address to kenlai88@yahoo.com with the following info:
1.  user name:
2.  city
3.  country

Get your Grand Duke Talismans before Feb. 3, 2017 if possible.  Year of Rooster will start on Feb. 3, 2017.  Your individually consecrated digital talisman will be emailed to you in about 2 weeks after receiving your proof of donation.

Thank you for participating in this charity drive.

What Happens when Rabbit clashing Rooster 卯酉冲

2017 is the Year of Rooster.

In Chinese Metaphysics, zi-wu-mao-you (rat-horse-rabbit-rooster) are the four cardinal directions with strongest energy among the 12 branches.  Rooster clashes rabbit or you-metal clashes mao-wood.  This is a serious and high intensity clash because you has the purest metal energy and mao the purest wood energy.   

Individuals with mao-wood in their Bazi birth charts or current luck period/s, are subject to mao-you clash in 2017.  Below are a list of possibilities of what may happen.

1.  Mao stands for fists and you for knives-- fists and knives imply brawls or fighting.  Mao-you clash could mean injury (by metal object) and imprisonment.  You is the qi-sha (power star) of mao.  It has violence signal for mao.

2.  Mao stands for string and you for handcuff-- this could mean hands are tied or handcuffed.  Mao-you clash can mean prison gate is closed and locked, i.e. imprisoned.

3.  Mao stands for cars and boats, when clashed by you,  means traffic accidents.  In 2011 Xin-mao year and you-month, China and Korea had serious ship sinking incidents with numerous fatalities.

4.  Mao stands for eyes, when clashed by you, stands for eye illness or shedding tears.  Mao also stands for liver and you lungs.  When mao and you clash and hurt each other in a chart-- represent liver and lung sickness.

5.  The Chinese word  卯  (mao) looks like a female uterus.  So mao-you clash can also stand for uterus problems for females resulting in surgery (using knives or you-metal), especially if the mao is in hour branch.

6.  You belongs to the Dui trigram which represents young female, wine, damage, blood, sperms.... Mao belongs to the Zheng trigram which represents male, hands...  Mao-you clash has implications for affair and lust.  This clash also stands for divorce or separation between a couple due to lust/ affair.

7.  Mao-you clash also stands of killing, like the slaughtering of rabbits and chicken.

8.  People with mao-you clash in their natal charts are talkative and good at expressing themselves.  But they also like to yell at people.

"Ken, is there any remedy or cure for mao-you clash?"

How to Choose Your Lucky Feng Shui floor numbers

With urbanization around the world, more and more people move into highrise buildings with up to 100 floors and even more.  How to choose a floor number that could enhance your luck?

Below is a list of lucky Feng Shui floor numbers for people with different Chinese zodiac animal signs.  These floor numbers will enhance the luck of the element of the animal sign of the resident or tenant.   When there are multiple people living in an apartment, choose the floor number based on the animal sign of the owner or breadwinner of the apartment.

You can apply the same principle to choose the street address number too.

In traditional China, if a fortune-teller did not charge a customer, the customer likely would cry.  It was not tears of joy.  It was tears of fear.

Practitioners in the Chinese fortune-telling circle think they are in the business of "leaking heaven's secrets".   They have set up some business norms or code of ethics on how to charge, who should not be charged and who should be denied service.


RULES FOR FEE CHARGING 算命收费行规

1. Charge the rich and famous more 富贵者多收
 -- because people in these social levels have more influence on society.  "Leaking heaven's secrets" to them will create more unintended influence on the society. 
2. Charge the poor less 贫穷者少收
-- the influence of this group of people is less than the rich.  "Leaking heaven's secrets" to them will create much less influence on society. 
3. Reading cannot be free  算命不能不收钱
-- according to fortune-telling business norms, free reading is like giving away one's life to the customer. The fortune-teller may pick up customer's karma debt for "leaking heaven's secret" without compensation. This becomes interfering with others' destiny for no reason.  It is also inauspicious to the customer who will owe a karma debt to the reader.  This karma entanglement may cause unnecessary reincarnations to repay debts.

RULES FOR FREE READING  此类命不收

1. People whose life is about to end 阳寿将尽者不收
-- because fortune-telling norm does not collect money from dead people (or soon-to-be-dead). 
2. People who are facing unavoidable major disaster 大祸临身不可避者不收
-- major disaster refers to major injury that may cause death or whole family may perish. 
3. People who will not have good luck for remaining of their lives 再无好运者不收
-- their lives will get worse and worse.  So no charge.

RULES FOR REFUSING READING  “四不算”

1. No forecasting of other people's private matter/ privacy 不测他人的隐私
-- this is to avoid exploitation and prosecution of people unknown to the reader
2. No forecasting of baby gender for pregnant women 不测孕妇怀胎性别
-- with modern ultra-sound technology, this taboo is no longer relevant.  The original intention is to prevent abortion of female fetus.
3. No forecasting for gangsters  不测凶徒
-- the fortune-teller may get beaten up or killed if not careful when servicing these people.  Other than doing persuasion indirectly, it is not smart to "leak heaven's secret" to these people.
4. No service for insincere people 心不誠者不測
心不誠者不測
心不誠者不測
-- some people treat fortune-telling as a joke or for entertainment only.  Stay away from these people and not waste your time.

Similar belief about fee payment also extends to Feng Shui, date-selection and other divination methods.  The practitioners believe in the exchange of energies-- advice for compensation.  Without the exchange means:
1.  A karma debt is created which is negative to both parties. 
2.  The practitioner is interfering with other being's business.

The amount of payment is not important but the flow and exchange of energies is.  Symbolic payment inside a red envelop is common if a practitioner does not want to charge a poor customer or close friend.

Some practitioners also believe that non-paying consultation will enrage customer's karma creditors (ghosts/ spirits) for interfering with their karma debt collection (by inflicting pain and misfortune, but are stopped by the reader).  These karma creditors will collect their debts from the practitioner instead of the customer.  The practitioner will pick up customer's the bad luck and misfortune.

House and People Violating Grand Duke or Tai-sui

This post is based on 2015 "Grand Duke Talisman charity drive" with updates for 2017.

If you have read my old message about functions of Grand Duke, you know that there are two Grand Dukes watching over your shoulder, counting the good and bad deeds that you have done and executing rewards and misfortunes accordingly. This is a major rationale that donation to get your Grand Duke talisman.  When your talisman is grounded with a charitable deed, GD is less likely to execute any misfortunes due from your karma account. Another rationale for donation is the exchange of energy-- using a charitable deed in exchange of protection energy from Grand Duke.

For 2017, I have added the topic for house violating Grand Duke, the cure is either avoiding activities/ earth-digging or using the Grand Duke talisman in the Grand Duke location.

2017 GRAND DUKE GENERAL TANG JIE  
2017 is Ding-you or year of fire-rooster. Grand Duke for the year is General Tang Jie who was a military officer in Song Dynasty (618- 907).  Tang was born with super physical prowess.  He was humble and respected by local folks.  He had passed the government military officer exam and become a military officer.   

General Tang was ordered to stop the bandit disturbance in the South.  He had neutralized the bandit chief and decapitated 58 bandits.   Local people were no longer under the threat of plunder and killing.  The government had rewarded Tang with higher rank and silver.

丁酉太歲生於唐代安鄉〈今湖北省安鄉縣〉,名唐杰,字子文。自幼練習武藝,因而身體碩壯。更有一身特殊奇大的力量,在挑擔和舉重時表現突出。然而也受嚴格的禮教,所以待人十分謙讓,為地方人敬重;遇到有人仗力欺辱鄉民時,大家就請唐杰出來主持公道,唐杰只要出面,紛爭就自然平息下去。後來唐杰順利地在科考中考上武舉人,使他出生地大感光彩。因武舉人比一般文舉人還困難,不但要考武藝兵學,也要考基本的文科。當時,南方盜寇動亂,唐杰奉旨到南方平定寇亂,斬殺為首的賊子多人,又乘勝追殺賊寇於桃花岡,斬賊首等五十八人,立了平定賊寇的奇功,使鄉民不再被搶奪殺害。因此,朝廷賜蟒服、銀兩等給與獎勵。唐杰的功勛和德行,受到普遍的推崇。

2017  GRAND DUKE TALISMAN FOR BAZI CLASHES

Ding-you or year of  fire-rooster can be challenging for people with Gui-mao or Xin-mao pillar in their Bazi charts because these pillars "fan-yin" or "battle" with both the stem and branch of the Grand Duke.  It is especially serious if your day-pillar is  Gui-mao or Xin-mao because it means something may happen to you or your spouse.

In addition, besides the year branch, if any of the branch in your Bazi chart has a mao-rabbit, that branch is also clashing Grand Duke.  The effect may be seen from the people and events represented by that branch location.  For example, if you have a mao month branch clash, the effect may happen to daymasters' parent or sibling.

 Here are the four groups of people who need Grand Duke Talismans:
 1. "Fu-yin" or same animal sign of Grand Duke 值太岁-- people with rooster sign
ROOSTER : years born-- 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981,  1993, 2005, 2017  
Symptoms: obstacles, stagnation or running "reverse" instead of forward and not suitable for travels.  Damages in career and wealth luck and relationship.  Rooster also "self-penalizing" itself when runs into rooster year.

 2. "Fan-yin" or "clashing" the animal sign of Grand Duke 冲太岁-- people with rabbit sign
RABBIT: years born-- 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011  
Symptoms: big fluctuations in luck, wealth, career, relationship and health; traffic accident, hurt by metal object, sickness, surgery, losing competitions/wealth, moving, death,  negative romance, quarrels and etc.
SPECIAL NOTE:  Mao-you clash is a powerful clash involving wood and metal battling-- negative romance causing serious financial loss or even death or traffic accidents and surgery (injuries by metal).  If your chart has zi-rat, it will get even worse.  If your chart has both zi-rat and wu-horse, pump up your life insurance policy because you have all the 4-cardinal clashes elements-- zi, wu, mao and you.

 3. "Hai" or "prosecuting" the animal sign of Grand Duke 太岁-- people with dog sign
DOGyears born-- 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970,  1982, 1994, 2006  
Symptoms: backstabbing at work, bad interpersonal relationship, jealousy from others, emotional problems, success slips away in the last minute and low Feng Shui luck.

 4. "Po" or "damaging" the animal sign of Grand Duke 太岁---- people with rat sign
RATyears born-- 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008
Symptoms: interpersonal relationship problems, negative romance, marital problem, backstabbing, skin and nervous system problems-- due to over-confidence and extreme/ radical positions.

 GRAND DUKE TALISMAN FOR FENG SHUI REMEDY
1.  House violating Grand Duke
Click to enlarge
In 2017 ding-you year, if your house faces You-rooster mountain or W2 (262.5 to 277.5 degree, west) direction, your house is said to be "violating Grand Duke."  House violating GD will affect the overall luck, health and well-being of the people living inside.  The remedy is either avoiding movements, construction, earth-digging and demolition there or put up a Grand Duke talisman facing W2 direction.  The opposite side of Grand Duke is Year-breaker (Sui-po, E2 or east).  This location should avoid digging and activities too. 

Even with the GD talisman, if you need to do construction, you still need to do a date-selection for an auspicious date and start digging on a non-GD direction and finish last on the GD direction.  I have checked through the year of Rooster and compiled a construction calendar with dates that can over-ride the effect of Grand Duke, San-sha and 5-yellow star.  Please look for info in this blog in the near future. 

2.  Desk violating Grand Duke 
If your desk or wherever you sit for an extended time faces You-rooster mountain or W2 direction, you can put up a Grand Duke talisman there for protection.  It is not auspicious to face the Grand Duke direction.  It weakens your competition power in business/career and examinations. However, if you arrange your seat so that W2 will be at your back (and put a Grand Duke talisman there), you will get Grand Duke as support and is good for competition and business. 

3.  Moving direction violating Grand Duke
If you move to a new house or residence, the relative direction from your old house to the new house is facing W2 grand Duke direction, you are considered "violating GD".  Remedy will be choosing an auspicious date to move or at the least, choose a different route of traveling, like driving to a different direction in the beginning, take a break for 15 minutes or more and then to the final destination.  This will convert the original GD direction to a non-GD direction. You may carry a GD talisman too. 

4Marriage direction violating Grand Duke
If you get married and the relative direction of your new marital residence to the old residence is facing SW2 grand Duke direction,  you are considered "violating GD".  Remedy will be choosing an auspicious date to move or at the least, choose a different route of traveling, like driving to a different direction in the beginning, take a break for 15 minutes or more and then to the final destination.  This will convert the original GD direction to a non-GD direction.  You may carry a GD talisman too.


 GRAND DUKE TALISMAN OFFERS
 This year we use digital delivery of Grand Duke Talismans because "snail mail" is slow and prone to losses.  Ken Lai will create a GD Talisman with user name, city and country imprinted, bless and "activate" individually on screen digitally.  This unique activated GD file will be emailed to you.  You can print as many copies as you want (but for one unique-named person only).  In this way, you can replace soiled or damaged talismans.  You can carry one talisman in your wallet and post one in your home and/or office for Feng Shui remedy.  You get more "mileage" from a single donation this way.

The offer is the same as previous years: your charity donation of US$30 or more to any legitimate local or international charity will get you a specially blessed Grand Duke talisman with your name inscribed (see below for special rate for countries with lower annual income per capita).    Here are some sample charities suggested in the past drives:
  • homeless shelter
  • Save-the-Children (www.savethechildren.org)
  • UNICEF (United Nation Children's Fund)
  • Smile Train (www.smiletrain.org)
  • children hospital
  • food shelves/soup kitchen
  • Red Cross
  • animal shelter/ humane society
  • Doctors without border (https://donate.doctorswithoutborders.org/onetime.cfm)
Donation made to help alleviate an urgent human/ animal need or suffering (e.g., feeding the hungry, tornado/ typhoon victims or homeless) gets you more karma credits than donation for public good or improvement of public life like church/ temple or public radio/TV.

If you are worried about privacy issues and future solicitations-- please be assured that I will not email you in the future. You will send me NO money. You send your money directly to your favorite local or international charity.  You do NOT need to purchase any additional item from me or anyone else. No future solicitation of any type will be sent to you.  This offer is for people who have no access to Daoist temples.  Please support your local temple if you have access to one.

If you need more than one Grand Duke Talismans, here is the discount schedule:
 --one talisman US$30 donation (US$5 if you are unemployed/under-employed)
 --two talismans US$50 donation ($10 if unemployed /under-employed )
 --three talismans US$60 donation ($15 if unemployed /under-employed )
(you may go to www.xe.com to calculate the equivalent of US$30 to your local currency)


NOTE:  People from countries with annual personal income per capita income below US$8000.00 can use the "under-employed and unemployed rate".
 
Talisman that is grounded with a charitable event works more effectively because it has an exchange of one type of energy for protection energy.

To claim your talismans and application instructions, please forward your donation receipt with the talisman recipient names and address to kenlai88@yahoo.com with the following info:
1.  user name:
2.  city
3.  country

Get your Grand Duke Talismans before Feb. 3, 2017 if possible.  Year of Rooster will start on Feb. 3, 2017.  Your individually consecrated digital talisman will be emailed to you in about 2 weeks after receiving your proof of donation.
