Feel Good With Feng Shui

Feng shui is all about balancing and harmonising the movement of chi (energy) in any space. We are  affected by the type of energy around us. Have you ever walked into a room or house and felt uncomfortable in there, or felt happy and uplifted? You are sensing the energy in the place. Feng shui analyses the energy and transforms it from inauspicious to auspicious. Healthy, balanced energy around you can create balance in your life, helping things to work out and move forward for you. At the very least, when you get the energy right, you can achieve that …

Free-Up & Focus in the Year of the Pig

5th February 2019 – 24th January 2020 The Year of the Pig starts on 5th February 2019. It brings a lighter energy than the 2018 Dog Year. The double Earth in 2018 was heavy, making it difficult to move forward and progress.  It was almost like treading in treacle. The Pig is the Water element. Water flows, and whatever obstacles are in its path, it will always find a way to get where it wants to be. So we can look forward to finding ways through our challenges, seeing a new direction to take, and keeping positive that things will …

Why does Feng Shui focus on Chi?

Because creating healthy chi is the priority in feng shui. We cannot see chi, but we can feel it. It’s like the concept of electricity. We can’t see it moving through the cables, but we touch a switch and get light. Chi is that feeling you get when you enter a property, or meet someone. You may feel good or bad. You are feeling the chi. The chi in your personal space must feel good, and it must flow in a gentle, curving manner, weaving in, out and around areas. What happens to the chi in an area can manifest …

Predecessor Energy Can Affect Relationships

Predecessor energy (chi) is the energy left behind from previous occupants of a building. This energy can be built up over many years and many occupants, and becomes embedded in the fabric of a property, in its wall, floors, fixture and fittings, furniture and any objects. The chi becomes stuck in the home. Predecessor energy can be absorbed by present occupants, who can be affected by it in similar ways. If the energy at the time was extreme, such as traumas, financial difficulties, divorce, illness and so on, present occupants may go on to have similar issues. Friends of mine …

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 …

The Year of the Dog can influence positive lifestyle changes | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

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 car parking is important | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

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 | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

Feng Shui Your Car #4

Feng Shui Your Car #4 gets you re-thinking 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 …

Feng Shui Your Car #3

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 …

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 …
