Avoid Bad Chi At The Front Of Your Property | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

Avoid bad chi at the front of your property

On my morning walks, I used to pass a new apartment block being built. What an opportunity to avoid bad chi right at the start and create some really healthy, positive energy for the building and potential occupants. But it was located on a corner, near a roundabout, with car bonnets and headlights aiming poison arrows at it from all directions. Later on, some tall knife-like decorative structures were spaced out along the front of the building. Below them, encircling the whole front was a low wall, with water rushing from underneath the wall down some steps into a trough. The …

Your Dog Year Lifestyle

Our Dog Year lifestyle is up for change this year, so keep it positive The Year of the Dog began on February 16th 2018. The energy influences for 2018 are Yang Earth over Yang Earth, earth being the Dog’s element, which is also an energy. One would think that two dogs would create a healthy friendship, but they can also create huge challenges. 2016 was the Monkey. The energy was yang fire over metal, which influenced unpredictability and surprises, a nudge to take a risk and try something different. 2017 energy was the Rooster. This energy was yin fire over …

Feng Shui Your Car #5

Feng Shui car parking is important, as your car can aim good or bad energy at your home. Don’t park your car facing your home. As the car turns to face your home, it directs sha chi towards it from the bonnet and the headlights. Sha chi is particularly potent when aimed at your front door. Sha chi is an unpleasant, attacking type of energy and can create discomfort for the occupants and unhealthy energy moving through the home via the front door. Back into your driveway if possible and park the car facing away from your home to avoid …

Feng Shui Your Car #4

Re-think what’s in your car. Objects with points or sharp edges are known in feng shui as poison arrows. They aim an angry type of chi at you. An object swinging around as you drive is chopping the chi around instead of keeping it free-flowing and balanced. It’s also distracting you from concentrating on the road and your driving. Out with all these! If you want a mascot in your car, ensure that it’s not a snake, tiger, or other ferocious wild animal. It may not be real, but think about what it represents – a cunning, menacing, fierce energy. Do …

Feng Shui Your Car #3

Open your windows and breathe. Inhale that life-giving chi, full of oxygen and negative ions which help to clear the air and your lungs of harmful airborne particles such as bacteria, viruses, odours, dust, mould spores and more. The inside of the car is a small space and the air is quickly robbed of its vital energy. If the car is new, it can also be full of chemical pollutants which leach out from the new fabric and works of the car. Do you ever arrive at your destination feeling a little lethargic, out of sorts, low or lifeless? You …

Feng Shui Colours

Feng Shui is about creating a balanced flow of energy in your surroundings. You are a reflection of the type of energy flowing around you, because you absorb it. So, balance in your personal surroundings brings balance into your body and life. With balance come optimum conditions for healing to begin, whether in your health, relationships, career, opportunities or any other life area. Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal make up everything that exists, from a rock to a leaf to a person. Each element is linked to a colour, life area, and compass sector. Placing the right colours in each compass sector of your home creates balance.  Colours can be in the …

Feng Shui Your Car #2

Having clutter-cleared your car (Feng Shui Your Car #1) now clean the windows, inside and outside, so that a continuous flow of auspicious chi can enter, flow around inside the car, then exit. Chi can’t come and go effectively through dirty windows. It needs to flow well through the windows, otherwise the energy inside your car will become stale and stuck, and end up affecting you in a similar way, because you absorb the chi around you. You may feel sluggish, or not moving ahead in your life, or suffer mild congestive health issues or other stuck conditions. So let the chi …

Feng Shui Your Car #1

Good feng shui in your car can make your time spent in it safer, healthier and more enjoyable. You absorb the energy in which you reside, even during a short trip in your car, so it makes sense to keep the energy in it balanced and healthy. Start by clearing your clutter. This will immediately free-up the energy inside your car. Stuck energy can stop you from getting things moving, progressing, making your life work for you. It can also clog up your body and make congestive health issues stick around, like colds, chest infections, headaches. And it can make you …

Best Feng Shui Place To Sit

The best feng shui place to sit is where you have command over the room, which means good back support (a wall, a piece of furniture, or a high-back chair) and being able to see the door, facing the space in the room, and if possible, with a view of the window. Do you sometimes avoid sitting in a particular place because you don’t feel comfortable there? It could be that you simply don’t like the atmosphere in the room, but mostly it’s because you are sitting in the wrong place. This can make you feel unsupported, unprotected, vulnerable, disturbed, or …

Space Clear The Bad Energy

Whatever happens in a room or home is absorbed by the walls, floor, ceiling, furniture, objects, plants and everything else in it. If previous occupants had problems, such as financial, divorce, illness, disharmony, or the business suffered, the negative energies created by the thoughts, feelings and behaviour of the occupants remain in the space or object and can affect future occupants and businesses. Repetitive patterns, moods and atmospheres get deeply imprinted in the very fabric of a building and swirl around in the surrounding space, possibly causing similar problems for future occupants. If your home or a room makes you feel depressed or strange in any way, you …
