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 | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

Feng Shui Your Car #2

Feng Shui Your Car #2 assumes that you have now clutter-cleared your car (Feng Shui Your Car #1). So 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 …

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 | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

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 | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

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 …

Feng Shui & Clutter Clearing Work Together | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

Feng Shui & Clutter Clearing Work Together

Feng Shui struggles around clutter. Feng Shui wants to move you forward. Clutter holds you back. Its stale energy lingers in the atmosphere. Absorbing it is bad for you. Energy levels, decision-making and health can all suffer. It can make you feel ‘stuck’ and going nowhere in your life. In Feng Shui, the floor plan of your home is divided up into eight compass sectors, and each of these relates to an area of your life. Clutter in SouthWest (your Relationships sector) can stifle relationships, stop them moving forward or create relationship problems. In East (the Health sector) clutter can influence congestive health problems like chest infection, …

Declutter Your Website

We all want to drive visitors to our website, but is the website appealing enough for them to stay around and explore? Is our content interesting or engaging enough, or is there just too much of it, or too much waffle? If you’re lacking visitors, or they visit but don’t convert, and bounce rates are high, it could be time for a website de-clutter. Think about the website like your home. You clean up for your visitors. You make them feel comfortable and interested in you and your home. You don’t bombard them with loud music or flashing lights, or shove …

Clutter Workout For Desk & Mind | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

Clutter Workout for Desk and Mind

Spend 4 minutes clutter-clearing your desk at the end of each day, and you will start the next day feeling focused, energised and organised, and will probably be more productive. Spend another 1 minute writing a To-Do list and put a tick by the priorities, and you will have a tidy, organised mind as well as a clear desk. Being faced with a messy desk first thing in the morning can sap your energy and lower your morale and motivation, and it can also mess-up your thinking. Before you get to the daily 5-minute desk and mind workout, you will …

About Feng Shui

Feng shui is based on the flow of nature, how energy (chi) flows through the universe and how it affects people. Feng shui’s principles are the laws of nature. If we ‘go with the flow’ of nature, we are balanced and our life flows well. If we go against the flow, things can be challenging. The aim of Feng Shui is to create healthy, positive, balanced and harmonious energy in a property. The property will then support the occupants, and help to improve their mental, physical and emotional well-being, their opportunities and all aspects of their life, being health, relationships, career, family, finances, job …

Clutter Can Harm Your Health | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

Clutter Can Harm Your Health

Clutter creates stuck, congested energy which, apart from clogging up the atmosphere around you, can steal your personal vitality and harm your health. It can manifest in your body as physical illnesses that stick around, such as congestive disorders like constipation, colds or chest infections. It can influence compression issues like weight gain or abdominal fat. It can also make your relationships or life stick, and stop them from moving ahead. All this compromises your mental and emotional health, which may cause you anxiety, worry and low self-esteem. So all in all, clutter can gradually take over your health and …
