Best Feng Shui Place To Sit

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 even distressed. These are all undesirable seating positions: Sitting with your back facing an empty space. You are unsupported and unprotected. Better to sit facing the space. Sitting with the door somewhere behind you, unable to see it unless you turn around. You may feel vulnerable, as though somebody could creep …

Wake Up In The Rooster Year 2017

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, …

Feng Shui Is For Keeps

I once sat next to a BBC reporter at a dinner.  He was disappointed not to receive a quick feng shui diagnosis over the main course, followed by treatment over dessert. He asked me discreetly if our Host’s dining-room needed feng shui, then asked if I could help him to feel better, as he was lacking energy and generally feeling unwell. I did wonder if he would have asked a doctor or lawyer for some quick advice over a semi-formal dinner. I explained that I would need compass readings and special analyses for the dining-room, which take time. For his problems …

Feng Shui Hell In A Hotel Room

I wonder how many people walk out of this hotel room feeling ill, nervous, shattered and spooked. Some years ago I had my worst night’s sleep ever in this room. I had to check in quickly and rush off to a meeting which ended late at night. When I returned, I was desperate to drop into bed and sleep. I had no time to do a Feng Shui on the room apart from covering the television and the full length mirror on the door. During the night I felt hyperactive and slightly ill. A sense of foreboding made me feel …

Would It Have Happened Anyway?

This is what I sometimes hear after I have carried out Feng Shui on somebody’s home and positive things start happening. They wonder if these things would have happened anyway, without the Feng Shui. Things usually happen after a Feng Shui makeover, sometimes quickly, sometimes gradually over weeks or months. But there’s no doubt about it. When you shift subtle energy, changes take place, and it’s often the small changes that bring about life-changing outcomes. One of my clients had problems with partners. She seemed to attract domineering men with emotional baggage, and being a kind, helpful person, she soon …

Feng Shui is Powerful Energy Healing

I’m thinking about one of my clients who kept breaking his legs, arms, wrist and more. His wife moved out, believing there was a ghost around. There were certainly a few things wrong with the energy in their house, and one of the culprits was such a simple thing. Feng Shui is amazing at clearing out bad energy in the surroundings, and it has many rules, tools and techniques to do it. But there is also a lot of common sense involved.  How often is our priority how the home looks, instead of how it feels? And if something goes wrong, don’t …

Feng Shui for Happy Children

Good feng shui in the bedroom can make a huge difference to a child’s behaviour and unique development. One of my clients had a child who was terrified at night and didn’t seem to like being in her bedroom. During my consultation, I suggested that my client remove the red rug from the daughter’s bedroom floor. Apart from being bright red, which is a yang colour, and yang is too vibrant an energy for a bedroom, the rug depicted a pouncing tiger with open mouth. Similar smaller images of the tiger were also on the red curtains. No wonder she was …

Move Ahead in the Monkey Year

The Year of the Monkey on February 8th was the start of the Chinese New Year. A good year to take a chance, make a change and believe that anything is possible. This is because the monkey is one of the most energetic, enthusiastic and optimistic animals in the Chinese zodiac, but he also gets up to tricks, so it can be an exciting and intriguing year. Each new year arrives with two energy influences, this year being yang fire over metal, the latter being the monkey’s element. According to Feng Shui, the interaction of these two elements can have …
