Tonight everyone in this planet will welcome and celebrate the Chinese New Year. But according to Chinese Feng Sui, glories of the previous year will wane for those who are born in the Year of the Dog. It is believed that Dogs have a number of afflictions to deal with this year.
I am born in the Year of the Dog and I will not just let and allow this ancient belief to be taken lightly. So to protect and prevent myself from these upcoming hardships, I have carried out a couple of things that the Feng Sui masters have advised.

Though I already have a Jade Pi Yao Bracelet, which I purchased in Hong Kong back in 2005, today I purchased another Pi Yao Bracelet. This time it’s the Yellow Jasper type which I plan to wear all throughout this Year of the Dragon. I plan to interchange the new one with my old as days passed by. According to the ancient Feng Sui, I being a Dog is in direct conflict with Tai Sui, the ruling god of 2012. Therefore, to appease and prevent me from clashing with the Grand Duke Jupiter (Tai Sui) I need to wear this Pi Yao Bracelet.
Moreover, according to Feng Sui not so inviting winds are headed towards those who were born in the Year of the Dog. To impede this from happening according to Feng Sui, I need to carry with me at all times a Water Blue Rhinoceros keychain. Along with the bracelet I bought the said keychain and immediately attached it to my keys! Also, I purchased a Blue Elephant and Rhinoceros amulet and hanged it at the Northwest section of my unit. To fully supplement this protection, my cellphone’s wallpaper now is a downloaded Blue Elephant & Rhinoceros keychain photo.

What seems to be amazing with these trinkets that I just purchased is that it seems to be instantly taking its positive effect. As soon as the short ceremony was done by the salesperson who sold me these items – placing the items in a brass bowl, hitting the bowl with a wooden pestle, asking me to place my hands to cover the bowl and wish 3 things, salesperson praying over and blowing onto the bowl – and brought these trinkets with me, I instantly seem to encounter positive occurrences.
On my way home, everyone who walks out of the mall where I purchased the trinkets were in a hurry. There was a massive number of people waiting and hailing for a cab. But as soon as I crossed the street and hailed one, the cab just stopped in front of me and let me it. I say to myself that this could be a good sign.
While inside the taxi, the cab driver was suddenly signaled by a traffic enforcer to stop to give way to a long Chinese Street Parade. I and the driver watched patiently enjoying the vibrant procession of colorful Dragon and Lion dances along with marching majorettes twirling their brightly colored flags. Ironic as it may seem but I never felt the edginess and irritation of having to wait for the parade to finish. I just sat inside the cab, watch the parade and thought to myself that the colorful procession may be a sign of good luck and a successful year.
Surprisingly, even though the parade has not fully passed by, the driver was able to maneuver his car and found a narrow alleyway to make a detour without crossing the parade to lead us and drive me back to my place of stay. While riding the taxi on a detour, I thought to myself that the heavens must have conspired and this could be another good sign of positive things ahead this year.
When the taxi reached the building where I live, I paid him my fee and greet him Kung Hei Fat Choi while I get off his cab. I entered the building and then rode the elevator to bring me to the floor of my unit. I rode the elevator with a young girl who noticed my new bracelet and the green shirt I was wearing. She uttered, “You’re wearing green! That’s a lucky color, the color of money. I will wear green later tonight for the Chinese New Year.” Then the elevator stopped and opened its doors for her to get off. She greeted me Kung Hei Fat Choi with a smile while she gets out of the lift. I smiled back and thought that this must be the third and last sign that the New Year ahead will be satisfyingly good…
