One of the frequent targets of feng shui is clutter, and rightly so. Clutter drains our life energies, saps on mental energy and drowns us in the possessions that we once took interest in to where they simply take over our homes, and our lives, in some instances. It doesn’t matter how a collection starts, but what begins as an interest or even a gift, can go quickly from interesting to overwhelming. The energy of the collection then begins to take on a life of its own.
There is a formula in feng shui that’s called Eight Mansions. This is a personalized form of feng shui that relies on dates and your gender to find your personal feng shui. For those who’d like to use personal feng shui, you can calculate your personal directions for success, love and health – and your misfortune directions.
If your relationships are tired and money flies through your hands your house might just be the wrong color. Maybe life is a constant struggle and you can’t put your finger on the one small thing blocking your success. The answer could be as simple as the color on your house. Feng shui dictates that the paint color on your house can affect your wealth and abundance.
Moving into a new house, whether it is truly new or just new to you, is exciting. You begin making plans for your life and see it unfolding in the rooms of your new house. But the feng shui of new houses is different than houses where someone has lived a long time.
Feng shui isn’t just about painting a wall a certain color and hanging a windchime. Feng shui is more about understanding the way your house is representing your life. And there are signs, both subtle and overt that are telling you about the need to make changes in one to see improvement in the other.
With low interest mortgage rates holding steady, home ownership has continued to rise sharply with each passing year. And this rise also holds true for manufactured homes. Many people opt for manufactured homes, sometimes called “trailers” or “mobile homes,” because of their appeal: low cost, easy to purchase, quick to move into, faster set up compared to traditional homebuilding, and ability to purchase more home for the money. But even with the benefits such as these, there are some drawbacks to owning a trailer.
Windows are a natural part of the exterior of a home or office building. In a sense, they’re the eyes of the building. Their openings let in light, views and without them, life would dark, dull and depressing. Yet, having not enough windows is just as bad as having too many. Because of their energy, windows can affect our home’s feng shui – and ultimately – our lives.
Did you know that there’s a World Toilet Day? There is; it’s November 19th and its purpose is to call attention to the 2.5 billion people who lack access to clean sanitation, and the death and illness that result from that lack of access. Toilets get a bad rap in feng shui because everyone assumes that they ruin your feng shui.
There are two very basic kinds of energy in feng shui. These are sheng chi, which is called the dragon’s breath. This is the beautiful and helpful type of energy that brings all good things. The second energy is called shar chi. This is harmful energy that creates all kinds of problems.
Success has a number of definitions. For some it’s a one hundred foot yacht anchored off the Riviera. For others, it’s a tidy nest egg for retirement. For some, success can range from finding a job, getting pregnant, kicking an addiction, or simply feeling like there’s a flow again in life and you don’t have to roll a boulder up a hill every day.
One of the best kinds of feng shui a home or business can have is good environmental feng shui. In other words, the kind of environment your residence is in can have a dramatic impact on the quality of feng shui you have in your home. That’s because feng shui of a home begins in the environment and then flows inward.
When it comes to key influences in our lives, few are important as the bedroom in feng shui, and in particular, sleep. The time we spend sleeping is so central and important to our lives that the colors we surround ourselves with have a profound influence over us. By selecting a comforter color based on its specific inspiration, we’ll have more impact on this particular area of our lives.
