Feng Shui Remedies

Ideally, our living and working environments need to reflect and support our dream, our vision and our journey. Everything we own or surround ourselves with has its own unique energy and potential. It is always important to look at your space and question if you are carrying any excess baggage and if the things that surround you are truly a reflection of your journey. Feng Shui remedies, whether they are traditional, authentic or intuitive, all have one major factor in common. They act as a reminder, whether visual, subconscious or symbolic, of the purpose and intention of your journey.

Ideally, our living and working environments need to reflect and support our dream, our vision and our journey. Everything we own or surround ourselves with has its own unique energy and potential. It is always important to look at your space and question if you are carrying any excess baggage and if the things that surround you are truly a reflection of your journey. Feng Shui remedies, whether they are traditional, authentic or intuitive, all have one major factor in common. They act as a reminder, whether visual, subconscious or symbolic, of the purpose and intention of your journey.

Whenever you position a Feng Shui remedy in a particular place you should always ask yourself:

Did you place it there with clear intention and focus?

Is it in an area that is clear and bright enough to let the potential arrive?

Is the rest of the area reflective of the intention too?

If we position remedies casually in the 'hope' that something might happen, or if the surrounding area is not clean, well lit and tendered for, the remedy is unlikely to attract the kind of fortune you hoped for.

Feng Shui remedies tend to fall into one of three categories:

Protective Devices

Shiny Silver Balls - help to ward off negative chi entering the home via a window - usually hung at eye level.

Convex Mirrors - can be used within the home on landings, passage ways and halls to deflect negative chi within the home.

The Pakua Mirror - a traditional Feng Shui device to use on the outside of a property to deflect cutting chi.

Stabilising Remedies

Statues / Bronzes - the sheer physical weight of these items crates stability. Your choice of statue is important in the message you wish to convey.

Imagery - photographs, posters and paintings can provide a continual reminder of stability. Choose your images wisely.

Wind Chimes - these help break down fast moving chi energy if it is circulating violently. Also on long, straight staircases leading to a front door.

Earthenware Vases and Bowls - placed on the ground they provide a strong sense of security and stability.

Sea Salt - one of the most yang materials on the planet it absorbs excess yin energy, whether it is stale chi or humidity.

Enhancements

Crystals - reflect light brilliantly and enhance a space with light.

Mirrors - double up the space that they reflect.

Lights / Candles - enhance and strengthen sectors of the home.

Imagery - uplifting imagery act transcendentally and consciously.

Sound - TVs, sound systems, musical instruments all break up stagnant energy and motivate the space.

Mobiles - help to circulate chi in stagnant areas.
