Do you have big windows or patio doors in your home?

Do you have large expanses of glass in your home, for example big windows or patio doors with no net or voile curtains in front of them?

Large expanses of glass mean that energy in your home can easily fly out of your home.

Imagine for example that in the area of your home that relates to your wealth, you have some lovely large patio doors that lead to your garden. You may have found since living in your home that money seems to disappear rather quickly…

There is an easy fix – hang a clear faceted crystal above head height at the centre of the area of glass. This will help to circulate the energy and will also create beautiful little rainbow lights on your walls when the sun shines!

Another area you can use these crystals is over the bottom stair of a staircase – IF your staircase leads straight down to your front door. It will slow down the energy which tends to move far too quickly in this kind of situation.

Has Moving Home Changed Your Life For Better Or Worse?

Moving house is a risky business

I have a question for you…

How many times have you moved home so far in your life?

I am guessing at least once as most people leave the home they grew up in when they reach adulthood?

Maybe you move house on a regular basis or perhaps you have been in your current home for many years?

Here’s some food for thought – how did your life change when you moved home?

 

I don’t necessarily mean immediate changes. They can be gradual.

For example, did you notice that relationships changed for the better or worse once you had lived in your new home for a while?

Or did your health get better or worse?

How about your finances? Did you notice that your bank balance was healthier or was money flying out so fast you couldn’t keep up?

Think about all the important areas of your life: Love, health, money, career, travel, hobbies, friendships, family, children and so on. Did any of these change much after a house move?

Of course all these things change in some way, big or small, throughout our lives, but it is interesting from a feng shui perspective to know if changes occurred specifically after you were in a new home. Later in life we can look back on a period of our life and realise how wonderful or awful things were, but do we ever relate it to the home we were living in at that time?

Have you ever made significant changes to your home – maybe you added a new room, or perhaps a conservatory? Maybe you had a big extension done? Maybe you had a swimming pool dug in your garden? These things will all have an impact and change the feng shui of your home for better or worse…

 

Can the ‘wrong’ home lead to divorce?

I remember when I was in my late teens, my best friend at the time had just got engaged to a lovely man and they were so loved up it was incredible. I had never seen a couple so into each other and so seemingly well suited. I hoped that one day I would also achieve that kind of idyllic love match.

They married and moved into a lovely little home and all was well. Some years later they decided to move house to a bigger house and my friend took me to see the house they had offered on. I didn’t like it much, it just felt a bit big and cold, and felt empty somehow – but it was their choice and I probably kept my thoughts to myself. I knew nothing of feng shui back then. I did ask why the current owners were selling and she said ‘they are getting divorced’. I do remember that I had a bad feeling when she said that.

Over time we lost touch after I moved away but I heard years later that while living in that house, they too got divorced. It was probably just a coincidence but if the relationship sector of that house needed some feng shui help, and neither of those couples knew that, it could go part-way to explain why neither marriage lasted. I admit I was beyond stunned to hear they had broken up!

 

Your home is like an energy field

Now that I have many years experience with feng shui, I can see peoples homes in a different way. I see them as a kind of energy field, having a constant effect on the inhabitants, for better or worse depending on what the home is like. We spend so much time in our homes, even if we are out working much of the time – because we sleep there so that is a good third of our time at least. It would be almost impossible to not be affected by our surroundings wouldn’t it?

As an example, look at these 2 interiors and see how each one makes you feel. Now imagine not just looking at these different homes but actually living in them. What effect might each have on you?

 

 

 

Start with a spring clean

It makes sense to ensure your home is having as beneficial an effect on you as possible doesn’t it? You can make a positive start by simply de-cluttering (if you have any clutter) and spring-cleaning. Include loft areas, basements, cupboards, integral garages… This will lift the energy of your home immediately.

 

If any areas of your life have not been going as well as you would wish since being in your home, then maybe you would like my help to feng shui your home.

Here’s how I can help.

10 Easy Feng Shui Tips

 

 

Feng Shui for money problems. Is your wealth being flushed down the toilet?

Feng Shui for money problems.

Do you have money problems? Do you find there is always more money going out than coming in?

You may find, in that case, that you have a toilet situated in your wealth section of your home (see the Bagua diagram to find out).

If you find you do have a toilet there, first of all make sure you always keep the lid down.

Secondly, get a lovely money plant (Jade plant) in a rich red, blue or purple pot and place it on top of the toilet cistern.

Those 2 simple feng shui cures will help stop you ‘flushing’ your money away!

Beams in feng shui. Are beams creating problems for you?

Beams in feng shui and some easy cures.

Beams can look wonderful can’t they? They add character and interest to a room and are not only common in older, character properties – but also in conversions.

The problem is though, according to feng shui, beams are not a good thing. Many beams are very dark and bulky while others are thinner and lighter. Either way, beams carry chi (energy) too fast due to their horizontal shape. Energy should ideally flow at a normal pace, not too fast or too slow.

They can also ‘slice’ whatever lies below them, or act as what is known in feng shui as ‘poison arrows’.

Let’s say your double bed is positioned beneath a beam. If the beam direction is down through the middle of the bed that may adversely affect your love life. If it’s direction is across the bed it could affect you physically.

Beams can also make a ceiling feel too low and oppressive.

The good news is, you don’t have to avoid properties with beams or have yours removed! There are several ‘fixes’ you can do. (However if you are currently house hunting, go for a home with smooth ceilings!)

  1. Paint the beams a pale color, for instance if the ceiling is white, paint the means white too, and you almost make them seem to disappear!
  2. Run red cotton/thread along the middle of each beam.
  3. Hang 2 flutes, each tied with red cotton or thread on each beam. Hang the flutes facing each other with the mouth piece part at the bottom so that the shape created is like a Pa Kua.

How Mirrors Can Help Your Feng Shui

Mirrors are a wonderful Feng Shui ‘cure’ and there are several different ways you can use them to help your feng shui.

Firstly, you can hang a mirror in your career area as mirrors represent the water element and the career area of the Bagua is the water element.

Secondly, you can put a mirror in your health & family or wealth areas of your Bagua as those areas are the wood element which is helped by water.

Thirdly, you can hang a mirror on a wall which stands next to a ‘missing’ area of your Bagua. For instance in an L shaped house. Let’s say your home is missing the top left section, your wealth area. Hang a mirror on both walls that create the missing section to help counteract this.

The fourth way to use a mirror is to make a room or corridor seem bigger and lighter.

Obviously a larger mirror will be more effective than a tiny one!
