Earth Changes 2012 to 2080

This is an interesting preview of what might be  in store for us in the future , more specifically,the decades following 2012. I’m quoting from The Sanctus Germanus Prophecies (Vol. 2):

We believe that in the Northern Hemisphere in the dead of winter 2012, temperatures will reach their peak as the Seven Suns momentarily line up and concentrate heat onto our solar system.  Such an injection of energy will provoke even more rapid melting of the vast permafrost areas in the Northern Hemisphere and the continent of Antartica, causing a significant rise in the sea levels, which in turn will gravely impact human society.

The accelerated meltdown will cause major flooding of lowland and coastal areas worldwide resulting in a mass exodus from low-lying regions to higher ground and certain designated Spiritual Regions. Amidst this turmoil, lightbearers will be able to seize this opportunity to create a transitional society that will lay the foundation stones for a New Golden Age. (pages 64 – 65).

If you are intrigued by this prophecy, take a look at the website of the Sanctus Germanus Foundation.

This might also be a good subject to pursue in our forum. I have  created  the forum Prophecies for those who might be interested to pursue the subject matter.

Kambal Tuko

This anting-anting is an interesting companion to Santo Niñong hubad. It is called Kambal Tuko. Tuko is the Tagalog word for the gecko lizard. The gecko lizard lives on trees and is well known for its ability to cling quite firmly onto it. This lizard’s clinging ability has found itself into the Filipinos’ language and culture through the phrase “kapit tuko.” It signifies anyone who will cling on anything at all cost — like a public official, for example, who refuses to step down even if his or her ability to perform successfully all the responsibilities of the office is already in doubt. We say he or she is “kapit tuko” with respect to the position.

The lizard’s legendary clinging ability has also found its way into the realm of anting-antings. The association is obvious. If one has the clinging power of the lizard then he or she acquires the power to stabilize and make permanent a situation — like a romantic relationship or a love affair.

Use this talisman or anting-anting to make sure that your relationship with a man or a woman will last for a long time, if not forever.

Lucky and Unlucky Periods of the Day

“There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:”

Ecclesiastes

Cycles appear to be embedded in nature. The writer of that passage from Ecclesiastes was probably inspired by this observation.

From our observation of the cyclical nature of events, it has become logical to postulate the question: Do “good” and “bad” things also happen in cycles? If so, can we capture such a cycle in a system that  will enable us to identify certain periods or time of the day when things might be more opportune for us than at other periods?

I have what is probably by now a rare book entitled “Self Mastery and Fate with the Cycles of Life” authored by H. Spencer Lewis, founder and former Imperator of the Rosicrucian Order (AMORC).   The book purports to give precisely such a system.

I would like to share with you what I think to be an important part of the system given in the book. The author claims that we can divide a day into seven periods, labeled from “A” to “G”,  during which certain things can better be done or started.

Here are the time periods according to the day as identified by Dr. H. Spencer Lewis:

PERIODS FOR EACH DAY OF THE WEEK

PERIOD SUN MON TUE WED THU FRI SAT
12:00 AM – 3:25 AM G C F B E A D
3:25 AM – 6:51 AM A D G C F B E
6:51 AM – 10:17 AM B E A D G C F
10:17 AM – 1:42 PM C F B E A D G
1:42 PM – 5:08 PM D G C F B E A
5:08 PM – 8:34 PM E A D G C F B
8:34 PM – 12:00 AM F B E A D G C

DESCRIPTION OF THE PERIODS

Lucky for: Especially fortunate for all matters involving business, education, farming, making new acquaintances, and hiring of new employees. Starting short journeys. Marriage and courtship. Making shipments of goods. Surgical operations. Sales or solicitations especially with women.

Unlucky for: Starting new undertakings. Making of contracts or signing legal papers. Starting lawsuits. Borrowing money. Games of chance. Writing letters to ask for favors of any kind.

Marriage. Starting journeys by water. Construction of new buildings. Asking favors from persons of authority. Speculating in business. Buying stock market Surgical operations. Writing important letters.

Period E is generally the unluckiest period of the day.

 

“F” PERIOD

Lucky for: Starting practically any new undertaking, personal, social, or business.

Period “F” is the most fortunate or lucky period of the day.

Unlucky for: Hiring for any menial position. Marine affairs.

G” PERIOD

Lucky for: Matters requiring hard labor or physical energy. Material and sensual affairs. Collection of money. . Hiring of traveling salesmen, agents or collectors. Marital affairs. Marine affairs. Matters dealing with machines and working with metals. Scientific pursuits. Women seeking favors from men in business or personal matters.

Unlucky for: Receiving gifts or favor. Humanitarian affairs. Buying of cattle or livestock starting long journeys. Legal actions. Marriage or courting. Surgical operations.

Most accident prone period hence caution should be observed about being in hazardous places during this period. During illness, fever or body temperature is higher during this period.

Dr. Lewis has not really provided complete information on how he was able to derive this system. But he claims that the system is better than astrology and numerology.

Well,  just try it. The proof of the pudding is in the eating. You can print a copy of this post and carry it with you.  If it is practical for you to align your activities with the periods  given above, then do so. That will help ensuring that you’re not leaving anything to chance whenever you embark on important activities.

The “Last Leaf” and Belief in Anting-Anting

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the short stories in a high school English literature class that I remember until now is the story of two friends who were sharing an apartment. The story’s setting was somewhere in the United States. I’ve forgotten the details of the story so let me just reconstruct it and provide my own dialogue. We’ll call the two friends Susan and Mabel.

It was autumn and the weather was getting progressively colder with the approaching winter. Susan got seriously ill and Mabel took over the challenging task of nursing her back to health. However, Susan was severely depressed by the illness and believed that she would die soon.

The rented room they were sharing had a window facing a concrete wall. Framed by the window was the sight of a leafy vine that had been crawling on the wall. But it was autumn and the vine, just like the rest of the surrounding vegetation, had been losing its leaves one by one. As the sick girl contemplated the sight of the vine, she told her friend: “As soon as that vine loses all its leaves, I would be gone also.”

Every morning upon waking up, Susan would look out of the window to check on the vine — until the day when she saw only one last leaf still clinging to it. “I guess I have reached my end,” she told her friend, Mabel. “Tomorrow when that one last leaf falls, I would be gone also.”

But the next day when she looked out of the window, she was surprised to find that the leaf was still there! “Well, maybe, by tomorrow it will fall off,” she said, “and then I’ll die.”

However, just like the previous day, when the next morning came, the leaf was still there. It had somewhat miraculously clung to the vine. “Maybe it’s not your time to die after all,” Mable said. “That last leaf still clinging to the vine is sending you the message that you will survive this illness.”

And so the days wore on. Susan grew stronger as she looked out of the window each morning to see the last leaf still there. Upon her full recovery, she asked Mabel what might have been the cause or the miracle behind tenacious leaf that refused to fall. “Remember that last day when only one last leaf remained on the vine?” said Mabel. “Unknown to you, I secretly asked an artist friend to paint a leaf exactly on the same spot where that last leaf was. You have been seeing a painted leaf all along.”

I can’t help but equate that nice short story’s theme to our belief in talismans or anting-antings. It strikes a chord and that’s probably the reason the short story clings to my memory. The painted “last leaf” functioned as a talisman for the character of the story. It became the symbol through which the sick woman drew her inner strength to ultimately survive her ordeal.

Was it just imaginary and, therefore, ultimately unreal? If you go by the result, that question becomes irrelevant. In holding on to an anting-anting or talisman, I think we are tapping on an invisible source of power that in the story is symbolized by the “last leaf.” We tap the universal creative force through symbols and that, I think, is the ultimate function of the anting-anting you possess for whatever intention you decide to have it.

One of the criticisms you will most probably hear from a non-believer in talismans is – why bother to have something like that? Whatever you want, you can get from God. You just need to pray and whatever you need, God will give it to you even if you don’t carry around that piece of metal or wood you call an anting-anting.

I can adopt the same line of thinking and throw back the same logic to the critic. If you believe in God and you likewise believe that God is all-knowing, then why do you bother to pray at all? If God knows what you need, then wouldn’t it be unnecessary on your part to still pray and ask Him to give you what you need?

The act of praying and the act of keeping a talisman are essentially the same. They are symbolic behaviors we traditionally hold on to as important elements in invoking the creative energies.

We work and resonate with symbols in relating with the Divine. That’s the reason why we have temples and churches, for example. They are symbol’s of God’s presence in our midst. And so are talismans or other representations of divine or spiritual beings when they are properly consecrated for that purpose. They are symbols that can magnify and become the channel of spiritual energy that we can tap for various purposes in our lives.

Unknown to the characters in that short story, they had tapped into the same principle we have been tapping in our anting-antings or talismans. The “last leaf” had become a symbol and ultimately became the force that enabled one of the characters to survive her ordeal. In essence, it had become a talisman.

The Peter Mystical Book Center’s Procedure for Consecrating Talismans

I am reproducing here verbatim and unedited the complete Tagalog instructions from the Peter’s Mystical Book Center on how to consecrate talismans or anting-antings.

ANG WASTONG PAMAMARAAN NG “PAG-KONSAGRA” NG INYONG TALISMAN, MEDALYA, KUWINTAS, LIBRITO, PANYO, MYSTICAL HERBS AT MYSTICAL NA KAGAMITAN UPANG MAGKAROON NG BISA.

Ayon sa aming pinakabagong pananaliksik, ang inyong Talisman o librito ay lalong magiging mabisa kung kayo ang siyang mag-kokonsagra nito: Kaya’t narito ang lihim na pamamaraan ng pag-kokonsagra ng mga mystical na kagamitan na galing lamang sa aming opisina.

  1. Ang inyong talisman ay dapat konsagrahan lamang sa unang biyernes (First Friday) ng alin mang buwan. Maari din na magkonsagra kahit ordinaryong Biernes. Subalit dapat ulitin ang konsagracion sa “First Friday.”
  2. Ang pag-kokonsagra ay dapat gawin lamang sa pagitan ng ika-7:00 hanggang ika-9:00 ng umaga. Sa hapon naman ay sa pagitan ng ika-3:00 hanggang ika-6:00 ng hapon. Ang pagkokonsagra ay dapat gawin lamang ng isang beses. Kapag nakonsagrahan na sa umaga, ay hindi na dapat pang ulitin sa hapon, at sa susunod pang “First Friday.”
  3. Lalong makabubuti kung hindi gagawa ng kasalanan sa loob ng tatlong araw bago magkonsagra. Mainam rin na mag-”FASTING”, “PURIFICATION”, O MAGKUMPISAL AT MAGKUMUNYON.

WASTONG PAMAMARAAN

Gawin ang pagkokonsagra sa inyong silid na walang makakakita. Ilagay sa kaliwang palad ang inyong talismang kokonsagrahin. Lumuhod na nakaharap sa silangan (EAST) at magdasal ng 1 SUMASAMPALATAYA, 3 AMA NAMIN, 3 ABA GINOONG MARIA AT 3 GLORIA PATRI. Pagkatapos, dasalin ng tatlong beses ang sumusunod na “blessing” habang nakatitig sa talisman na nasa inyong kaliwang kamay:

“IN THE NAME OF GOD THE FATHER, AND OF GOD THE SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, AMEN…………………………”ALMIGHTY AND ALL WISE FATHER OF ALL PEOPLE, I HUMBLY BESEECH THY DIVINE AID IN THE FURTHERANCE OF MY PRAYER, BLESS THIS ____________________________ (mention the name of your talisman, books, etc) BLESS THIS HUMBLE PENTACLE, SUPPLICANT, MAY YOU IN YOUR DIVINE WISDOM AND MERCY FIND IT ACCEPTABLE IN YOUR SIGHT TO HELP ME IN MY QUEST, AMEN.”

Pagkatapos nito, ilagay and talisman sa sobre, kahon o jewelry box (huwag isasama sa ibang bagay o gamit) at ilagay sa altar, aparador o “drawer” na may susi. Huwag gagalawin o hihipuin sa loob ng 24 na oras. Pagkaraan nito puwede ng gamitin ang talisman. Makabubuti rin na habang ginagamit ang talisman ay magdasal ng 1 SUMASAMPALATAYA, 3 AMA NAMIN, 3 ABA GINOONG MARIA, AT 3 GLORIA PATRI sa loob ng sunod-sunod na 9 na gabi. Sa ika-10 araw maaari ng huwag ituloy o ituloy ang pagdadasal gabi-gabi. Huwag kalimutan na banggitin ang KAHILINGAN pagkatapos magdasal. Ang mga Talisman o libro ay dapat konsagrahan isa-isa. (Isang konsagracion bawat isang talisman). Yaong mga ‘HERBS” na ipinaiinom at ipinaliligo katulad ng Beth Root, Jinx Powder, Basil Sweet, etc., ay maari ng gamitin pagkatapos makonsagrahan. Hindi na dapat pang pagdasalan ng 9 na gabi.

MAHALAGANG TAGUBILIN

  1. Habang ginagamit ang inyong Talisman ay huwag ipahihiram o ipahihipo sa iba.
  2. Kung kayo ay may asawa, alisin ang Talisman bago matulog. Alisin din kung maliligo.
  3. Huwag dadalhin ang mga talisman o librito sa mga bahay aliwan, sauna bath at motel.

I have decided to post this all purpose way to consecrate and to activate a talisman in answer to a lot of requests in the Forum for specific formulas to activate specific anting-antings like the Infinito Dios, Siete Arkangheles, Trespicu, Una Peso Sagrada, etc., that often remain unanswered because we just can’t have all possible and specific ways to activate anting-antings specially when we don’t have them.

Hopefully, this can be a patch-up solution. If you can’t have the specific formula or prayer, then do it the way the Peter’s Mystical Book Center had been doing it. For decades, the bookshop had been one of the most prominent suppliers of occult and mystical items in the Philippines. If they can activate talismans the way it is given above, then I don’t see any reason why others can’t apply the same formula or procedure in activating any other anting-anting or talisman they may have.

If you want to start a discussion on this, then please proceed to the Forum and post in the topic I have created for it.

Way of the Ancient Healer – On Orasyon and Anting-Anting

One of my most recent book acquisitions is entitled Way of the Ancient Healer authored by Virgilio Mayor Apostol. The book is published internationally by North Atlantic Books (Berkeley, California) and just to emphasize the stature of the author in the publishing industry, one of the book’s reviewers is Deepak Chopra who says, “In the Way of the Ancient Healer, Virgil Mayor Apostol brilliantly blends the art and the science of the sacred teachings of Filipino traditional healing to help people find their path toward health and happiness”

There is an interesting passage in the book which I think succinctly summarizes the subject of oracions and anting-anting and the inherent challenge the seeker must hurdle to give meaning to and obtain personal empowerment from the practices surrounding them. I’m quoting the entire passage here for your benefit:

Some believe that the Philippines is one of the few places in the world that has retained the esoteric practices of the oracion to a high degree, which is very alive throughout the country. (Emphasis mine.)

The oracion has a scientific counterpart in that sound in the form of spoken words carries a vibration that entrains on a molecular level. If this vibration is backed by intention, the spiritual meaning of the actual words will have a greater impact. The oracion is much stronger if you have a “direct” spiritual connection to the Universal Consciousness of God or Goddess. But how do you know if you have this direct connection? I offer an answer in the form of a question: What does it mean to be the light, as opposed to just being a mirror reflecting that light?

Religious icons, whether symbolic through paintings, handcrafted or naturally occurring objects, were inspired by spiritual, philosophical thought. To the ancients, there was no such division between religion and spirituality. The loss of spirituality has degraded human thought to the denser, material level, so that when one sees a religious icon, they are biased into thinking in terms of the physical, which, to them, has no spiritual relevance. This, in turn, has limited humans into fabricating doctrines that demean such icons when people are not fully aware of what was once a harmonious perspective between the physical and spiritual realms.

Although one may possess one or several amulets, the question of whether they work for the individual depends on their devotion to fulfilling the criteria that would make them so. The umber one criteria is the intention. An instrument may have the potential to play beautiful music, but without the intent of playing it, that instrument merely becomes part of the individual’s collection of material things. Likewise, if that individual does not posses the knowledge or understanding of the ways these amulets were treated, activated, and fed, or even a connection with the culture where they come from, that individual may develop a need for collecting amulets to simply fulfill the desire of obtaining the energy of what these amulets represents.” (Pages 191-192)

Straight from the Heart – A Prayer Companion

One interesting find during a Holy Week recollection is the book entitled Straight from the Heart – A Prayer Companion compiled and edited by Rev. Fr. Mario Jose C. Ladra. It is published in English and Tagalog versions. What I have in the picture is the Tagalog version.

The book is relevant to this blog’s content because an  orasyon is essentially a prayer. A condensed form of prayer, if you may.

The testimonies attesting to the efficacy of the prayers in the book are impressive. Here are some (culled from a brochure promoting the book):

“I was diagnosed of Follicular Cancer (Thyroid) stage 4. I had been bed-ridden for 2 months and lost my hair. I underwent Radiation Therapy several times. But I have a strong faith in God. By using Straight from the Heart and praying most especially the healing prayers there and the Miracle Prayer, Page 30, I was healed by God. sincere prayer really works. Nothing is impossible to God.” (Lyn M. Lina, Cancer Survivor, Bulacan)

“I have experienced a lot of trials when I was applying for a job in Saudi Arabia, emotionally and financially. But by praying “The Miracle Prayer” on page 30 and attending the Healing Mass in San Lorenzo Ruiz Church, God truly helped me and answered my prayers. I am now here in Saudi with a fine job.” (Mark Billones, Jr., OFW, Saudi Arabia)

“Simula nang gamitin ng aking pamilya ang STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART  noong 2007, lalo kaming naging malapit sa Diyos at nagbago ang takbo ng aming buhay. Natanggap ako sa pagiging SEAMAN, naiwasan ko ang aking mga bisyo, gumaling ang aking skin allergy, nabayaran namin ang utang sa bahay at napag-aaral ang tatlo naming anak. Tunay na napakabisa ng mga panalangin sa aklat na ito. Purihin ang Diyos!” (Angelito Nunez, Seaman, Blue Manila, Inc)

The orasyon you may be looking for does not have to be in an esoteric book store or with a shaman in some remote location. You may find it in this book. It contains prayers addressed to God, archangels, and saints dealing with just any aspect of your life that you might want to pray for. Here are some random samples from the Tagalog version:

Panalangin para Makabayad ng Utang

Panalangin ng Isang Naghahanap ng Trabaho

Panalangin ng Isang Nanliligaw

Oratio Imperata – Panalangin para Ipag-adya sa mga Kalamidad

Ang Mapaghimalang Panalangin

The book comes relatively cheap at Php180.00.

Orbs During the Metro Manila Film Festival Parade?

I had the chance to take pictures of the Metro Manila Film Festival parade as it wound through Roxas Boulevard last Saturday, December 24, 2011.

What a surprise when I went through the shots in my laptop on Christmas  the next day! All the pictures appeared normal until I reached the close-up shots showing Senator Bong Revilla’s Panday 2  and My Househusband floats. Here are the shots:

 Picture A: Panday 2 float as it passes by where I was standing. Note the high density of orbs.

Picture B: Second shot of Panday 2 float as it moves closer. Note the apparent movement of the orbs relative to the float and the appearance of new ones.

Did my camera develop a glitch just at the point when the Panday 2 float was passing by? Did dust or moisture accumulate on my camera’s lens by then to create an optical illusion? If so, how can we explain that in contrast, the following shot showing the approaching  My Househusband float immediately following behind Panday 2 does not contain the same phenomenon?:

Picture C: My Househusband float following behind the Panday 2 float. Note the sudden absence of orbs.


And yet, when the Househusband float came up close, the orbs reappeared although in much fewer number than what hovered over the Panday 2 float.

Picture D: My Househusband float as it passes by where I was standing. Note the reappearance of orbs but in lesser density.

Did my camera malfunction as the Panday 2 float passed by and then self-corrected with Picture C but developed a glitch again as the next float passed by (Picture D)?

Orbs or globes of light captured on digital cameras have been an increasingly observed phenomenon in digital photography. We don’t conclusively know what orbs are at present. They could be nothing more than optical illusion. Others, specially those engaged in paranormal studies, believe that they are manifestations of spirit beings captured on camera.

If the latter were the case, did a crowd of spirit beings accompanied the float Panday 2 and, to a lesser degree, the float of My Househusband as they negotiated the parade route last Saturday?

I hope some psychic readers of my blog can pitch in and offer an explanation.

Birheng Nagpapasuso

Shown here is a version of a popular Filipino anting-anting called “Birheng Nagpapasuso” (Breastfeeding Virgin). It is used for attracting wealth and good fortune in other areas of life.

The analogy is obvious. You have the picture of the Virgin May breastfeeding the baby Jesus, an archetypal nurturing mother giving nourishment and protection to a child. So will the anting-anting do the same to its owner. It is described as a talisman that keeps its possessor away from potential harm and gives luck in business.

You can easily find this anting-anting sold in the sidewalk of Quiapo Church occupied by talisman vendors. The more attractive version for me is the taladro, a white cloth the size of a hankerchief containing the above illustration and inscriptions. You can likewise find a bronze medallion version without the detailed inscriptions.
