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

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 | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

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 …

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 …

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, …

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 …

How to achieve healthy chi flow

There is a significant connection between your health and the quality of chi in your home.
