The Chinese calendar has officially entered the annual Hungry Ghosts Month on August 11, which will run through September 9 this year.

Based on our Asian neighbor’s tradition, this is a time to be very careful as the Seventh Lunar Month—commonly referred to as the Hungry Ghost Month—is believed to be a time when the gates of hell open up, releasing spirits to visit the living, seeking to be fed.

As many Filipinos now know, the Chinese avoid making important transactions during this time like buying property or opening a business.

 

When setting out on a journey though, it is also important to protect ourselves from the effects of bad feng shui during this time. And while it is not always possible to travel on auspicious dates and different forms of obstructions and I wish to share with you simple rituals before any inconveniences manifest during trip like robbery, lost luggage, missed connections and poor judgments. Based on Feng Shui, there are ways to counter these, so do read on.

First, determine the direction to which you will travel, then perform the suggested ritual just before leaving the house to start your journey.


Besides the listed rituals, below are additional tips for worry-free trips:

If you are on a business trip, carry the victory and success medallion or the 9-mantra accessories to give you excellent travel and business luck.

Keep or carry the anti-evil spirit medallion, 9-mantra shawl or mantra accessories with you for personal safety and protection against harmful energies.

Before you travel, hold a curved knife in front of you and swipe from left to right three times. You may also light several incense sticks, offer them to the universe and silently ask for a safe and successful journey. It will help avert bad luck from different directions.
