Taoist cures are a little known to many Feng Shui masters and is a 4,000-year-old very closely held practice that goes back to Neolithic shamanism in China, simply put, we can use our own life force commonly known as “Qi” (chi), to create a talisman suited to your personal requirements that will assist us to achieve any ambition or object.
Creating a traditional and authentic talisman involves using eastern metaphysical concepts such as Feng Shui, the Wu Xing (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water elements), the I-Ching trigrams, the traditional Chinese sexagenarian lunisolar calendar, numerology and astrology.
We have been using Feng Shui Talismans for so many years with our Feng Shui annual cures and enhancer’s kits and they are normally engraved onto an earth element like slate, crystal, glass, terracotta and also on wood element including paper.
This method of creating a talisman takes something intangible and packages it into an object that is usually made of crystal, slate, marble, wood and even paper that you can hold in your hands or place in a compass area for the entire solar year and whether you call it magic or consciousness, a personal annual Feng Shui Talisman can help you channel your personal power toward achieving a set objective that can relate to wealth, health, career, relationships, academics and virtually all other aspects of your life for you and those around you.
The Taoist talisman, called a Fu, is an esoteric skill that a Feng Shui master might dedicate a lifetime to mastering, so the information provided here is only a touch on the surface of this ancient and powerful art.
In the year of the Rooster 2017, we are using a very special Master cure Talisman called a Cai Yuan Guang Jin Master cure and this powerful amulet and protective talisman cure can only be used in a Yin Fire Rooster year to enhance the annual #8 wealth star.
This cure is used to protect and enhance wealth and good luck and is only known to a few specialist Feng Shui Masters and thousands of years ago you would have to employ a Feng Shui Grand Master to call at your home or business where they would come along with a specialist zhuanke (seal carver) who would spend many hours carving the secret inscriptions on to the square earth plate in to a Lo Shu grid relevant for the Ding You year and would be carved on a large piece of translucent emerald-green Jade. The seal carver (zhuanke) and Feng Shui Master was traditionally hired by emperors and the very wealthy and was seen as a symbol of great wealth and power and this took many years of studying to perfect this specialist art form.
To create this enhancer and cure, the Feng Shui Master would use a large piece of translucent emerald-green jade which was the most sought after type of crystal and would carve it in to a dish which symbolised an offering dish for the year, filled with precious gold symbolic items and rare crystals. Carving jade is an art form on its own and because jade has a grain similar to wood, it would often become brittle on the first attempt which would cause a rippling effect on one side due to the Jade splintering which prompted Feng Shui Masters to adapt this Cure and create a sheng cycle which involves incorporating all of the five elements in to one Cure, creating a very powerful synergy between all elements.
In 2017 year of the Rooster this cure must be placed as near to the east of your home or office (if it cannot be placed in the east, place in the southeast part of your building with the four auspicious dynasty Chinese I-ching coin, gold coloured wealth ingot, the two separate crystals and two red jasper crystals.
We have been re-creating Master Cures for over 13 years now and while in recent years, many companies and Ebay sellers have tried to copy the cures, we are still waiting to come across one that actually replicates the cure exactly how it should be presented which we feel is very wrong and while there are Feng Shui Masters out there who do replicate this cure as it should be, please make sure you do your research and make sure the Master cure is genuine.
With over 18 years of selling Feng Shui cures and enhancers, I have to say that the Master cure has always been a strong passion of mine and I have personally created or overseen every single Master cure that we have ever replicated.
Another passion of mine is the Sheng Chi Cure which is a special year specific cure that we recreate ourselves at the Feng Shui Store and the cure for 2017 works in a similar way to Chinese Couplets as it is designed to appease Tai Sui which is located in the west. The Sheng Chi cure is engraved with a very powerful one hundred Sha Chi talisman which is designed to turn a bad star in to a good star. This year, we have the Yi Bai Fu Mian Qi Sheng Chi which is placed in the west.
As we have Tai Sui entering the west this year, we need to create a Sheng cycle to weaken the visiting wood element and the inherent metal element which is why this cure has been carefully selected as we have all five elements present through colour, shape and material. Whilst this is classed as a cure we have also incorporated a special i-ching coin facing yin side which is said to protect your wealth and stop money flowing away and with the combination of all the five elements (Wu Xing) we create a cure and enhancer that is said to turn good intro bad, this really is a lovely cure and enhancer and is vital in 2017 for this nasty combination of elements.
By paying respect to Grand Duke of Jupiter/Tai Sui, we can weaken or avoid the problems this can bring, this is vital with the annual #3 star in the same palace, which can bring a lot of problems as the volatility of the annual #3 wood star and Tai Sui also situated here when activated in this manner can cause legal issues, disputes, arguments, backstabbing, divorce and many other nasty situations . This is why we need a very special Talisman that will keep this area as calm and safe as possible.
We normally prepare our annual master cure talisman one to two years in advance as they are normally engraved and take some time to prepare and we have just finalised 2018 year of the yang Earth Dog (Wu Xu) master cure and 2018 is a very special year from a Feng Shui aspect and very special cures are needed and whilst I cannot give too much away but one of the talisman this year must be engraved onto a wooden wu lou calabash and we spent years sourcing the right one as the overall size, shape and feel has to be perfect.
The wooden wu lou in 2018 will be just one of the talismans we will use and in a wu Xu Dog year we use many earth cures which normally involves creating the talisman onto slate, glass, quartz crystals etc and I can tell you the 2018 annual cures and enhancers kit is absolutely stunning and we are so excited about releasing it which is normally around November so keep your eyes peeled and bookmark this page.
