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 | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant & Trainer | Oxford & Portugal

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 …

Healthy Front Door

A healthy front door is essential as it is one of the most important areas of the home.

Check What Your Mirror Reflects | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

Check What Your Mirror Reflects

Check what your mirror reflects. Look into it from all angles. A mirror symbolically doubles what it reflects. If it’s clutter, the mirror increases the clutter and the denseness of the stuck chi which permeates it. If it’s a table with a pile of bills on top, the mirror doubles the bills and any stress you may have about paying them. Move the mirror to reflect something pleasant which will increase healthy chi and lift your mood.

Front Door Facing Staircase | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

Front Door Facing The Staircase

With your front door facing the staircase, chi rushes up and down, leaving the rest of the house with weak energy. Place a healthy plant against the wall near the bottom of the stairs. It will attract the chi, stop it rushing, and make it healthy. Then chi will move gently through all areas of the home, nourishing and restoring balance.

Wake Up In The Rooster Year

The Year of the Rooster on January 28th is the start of the Chinese New Year. The energy influences for 2017 are Yin Fire over Metal, metal being the rooster’s element/energy. Fire and Metal clash, and the 2016 yang fire and metal monkey clash brought the energy of unpredictability and surprises, taking a risk and trying something different. 2017 yin fire and metal rooster energy gives us a wake-up call to get moving, but in a more calculated, methodical and practical manner. Rooster energy gives a sense of optimism, strength, leadership, collaboration and communication, while the yin fire kindles around it, …
