Feng Shui Makeover Part-2

Feng Shui Makeover Part-2

Feng Shui is the traditional art of placement. Feng shui handles the five main elements; water, wood, fire, earth and metal. Each one of these five elements moves in a different way and makes the energy of the environment vary with it. Feng shui affects our health, wealth and relationships.

Light a bulb on Your Career Path:
If your career is not moving in the way you wish, Feng Shui tips will attract good luck and bring new opportunities to your career. Feng Shui adds light to all the areas of your life and activates Chi. The light may be natural sunlight, electrical light, candle, holiday light, oil lamp or a natural or simulated fireplace.

Bring in Fresh Ideas by Clearing out Old Books:
Clutter can be defined as possessions that you either don't use any more or do not love. Old Books can be clutter. Clear the piles of old books if you do not find them useful and make room for new ideas and thoughts.

The Most Auspicious position of Bed:
Place the head of the bed against a wall so that you have clear sight of the door. Make sure that your feet are not directly in front of the door. Your head or feet should never be pointed towards a toilet nor should your bed be placed next to a window. Do not sleep directly under the beams of the ceiling.

Cool Tips for Hot Summer Days:
You can cool down your environment by adding shades of blue and green. Add green plants, blue flowers, or artwork in these colors. Display a painting of the ocean on the wall. Natural light brings important source of energy to your room while artificial light makes you feel hot. Keep lights turned down or use soft white or pink bulbs to keep the environment cool. Tabletop fountains are very good and can be easily made from household items and a small (50 gallon) aquarium pump.

You can also keep a simple clear glass bowl filled with water and decorative stones or rocks and add a few blue flowers or a green plant. An aquarium or fish bowl will also work well. Whatever water feature you maqy choose, remember that it must be kept clean and in good working condition, as stagnant water creates stagnant energy.

Warm Up Your Relationship in winter:
There are many remedies for creating a loving and a nourishing relationship. Place two red or white candles in the upper right corner (relationship area) of your bedroom. The two candles represent love and partnership and the candles will heat up your relationship and your love life. Include round, soft-leaved plants in your bedroom to promote Yin energy for resting and romance. Add flowers in your relationship area that are beautiful, fragrant and full of life. Use splashes of red, white and pink colour in your relationship area. Red is the color of joy, luck and prosperity and is the color of heart. Place a red, silk scarf over the lampshade in your bedroom. Balance your relationship with matching nightstands and table lamps. Avoid using mirrors in the bedroom as it reflects a third person who may disrupt your relationship. Place pictures that mean love to you. This could be a picture of two people strolling down a beach together or two love birds sitting on a mantel.

Use I-Ching Coins to Improve Your Wealth:
Tape three I-Ching Coins tied with a red thread, Yang side up, to your most important file in the office. The Yang side has four characters and the Yin side has two characters. This could be the file of your bank accounts, invoice file, prospective customer file. Placing the coins there will ensure that your cash flow stays healthy throughout the year. To attract money into your home or office, hang three I-Ching Coins on the door handle inside your main door. Tie the coins together with red string or thread in 9-inch increments to activate the prosperity already inside.
To activate a never-ending source of income, tie three I-Ching Coins with 9-inches of red thread and place them in your wallet.

Boost Personal Clarity with Crystals:
Enhance your intellectual clarity and expand your thoughts by hanging a faceted crystal ball in the Knowledge Gua of your home or office. For a positive effect, hang crystal balls with fishing line and add a red ribbon, cut to a multiple of 9 in length (i.e., 9, 18. or 27.). If you want to enhance your career, then put a crystal ball directly over your head. This cure promotes ease in getting sleep, peaceful dreams, calmness and freedom. Expect your telephone to ring with good personal or professional news by hanging a faceted crystal over the phone in your home or office. Hang a Feng Shui crystal over your bed to activate and harmonize whatever energy you want to attract to your life.

Use Plants and Flowers to Create Harmony and Balance:
Plants are very auspicious from the point of view of Feng Shui. Houseplants generate vital energy. The wood element represents spring, new beginnings, growth and wealth, therefore it is important to place houseplants in every room. Colorful flowers bring even a greater balance in your life. Purple flowering plants, placed on the main entrance of your home or room, can attract greater wealth. Pink, fuchsia and red flowers promote love and should be placed in the Relationship Gua . The secret is to create a balance between Yin and Yang. Yin is passive, nurturing, soft and dark while Yang is active, aggressive, hard and bright. Don't place thorny plants that grow down inside your house.

The Orange Peel Cure:
This is a renowned Feng Shui cure for reviving and restoring positive Chi. It sounds wacky but it really works. If you are nervous about a meeting with your boss or perspective client or you need extra protection around a person, you can protect yourself with the orange peel cure. In the morning, peel a fresh orange and keep nine pieces of the peel in your pocket. Carry the peels and visualize all negative energies being absorbed by peels. Nine is a very auspicious number in Feng Shui and it means culmination and completion. Each time you notice the peels in your pocket, repeat the visualization.

Your Front Door can Enhance Your Health & Wealth:
The front door in Feng Shui is considered very important. If your entrance cannot be seen easily from the street, opportunities and income will have a hard time getting to you. This can negatively affect your wealth, health and other areas of life. The front door allows money and health, a new job and relationship to come into the dwelling.
Invite Chi to your house by placing lights or moving objects like flags, a water feature or wind socks along the path. Front door must be clean and well lit to welcome Chi.

Boosting Metal Energy to Improve Finances:
Metal energy is associated with both wealth and protection. Boosting metal energy in your home or office will help you reap the rewards of your hard work. A clutter-free room gives a sense of freedom and releases creative thoughts and ideas. Objects like domes, arches, clocks, metals, stones, gems and crystals bring more metal Chi into a space. You can focus on your plans, business and finishing projects. Items with circular designs, round or oval, metal objects, the color of white, gold and silver promote finances and budgeting.
