Good Health with Feng Shui.

“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” good health buddha

Feng Shui and Good Health.

Feng Shui can help you attain good health and prevent serious illness from striking . It is never too early to start applying the principals of Feng Shui to ensure you and your family enjoy good health.

In Feng Shui one of the requirements for a healthy home requires the balance of Yin and Yang as this influences the flow of  energy. When there is  an imbalance , too much Yin…the house  suffers and this will bring sickness.  A healthy house must have activity ,light and sound ….Yang energy.The inside of the home must not be dark, too still and quiet as  this will cause too much stagnate  Yin energy to build up .To combat this, turn on a radio when you go to work , ensure that no rooms in the house go unused for long periods of time and that there are no dark corners in the home.


The placement of the bed is a vital contributing factor to good health.. …if the  bed is placed incorrectly you are aligning  your bed  towards  negative energy and this will cause your energy to drain as you sleep.

Your bed should be placed against a solid wall.  The reason for placing the bed against a  solid wall is to give the sleeping person’s head protection. Ideally the bed will have a solid bed head or headboard and you should be able to walk around the bed. The ideal Feng Shui spot for your bed is the Feng Shui command  position. The Feng Shui commanding position is the area further from the door/diagonally from the door, but not in line with it, you want to be able to see the door while you are in bed, but not be aligned with the door.If you can place your bed in  your best health direction you will sleep your way to good health or possible try to place your bed in one of your other good  Feng Shui directions.Bedroom 5

Avoid placing your bed  in line with any other doors …. balcony doors, bathroom door, walk-in closet or patio doors. If your bed is in line with any door, position a  piece of furniture between the bed and the door.  You are at your most  vulnerable when you sleep, so it’s crucial that  your feet are not in line with anything that can drain your energy .

To keep your bedroom Feng Shui healthy…ensure you do not sleep with mirrors facing your bed, remove all water features and limit (or completely eliminate!) the electrical appliances in your bedroom.Look around your room for any sharp protruding  corners that may be hitting you while you sleep …and for overhead  beams ,these are all called “poison arrows “in Feng Shui.

The East corners in your home represent good health .If these corners have good Feng Shui then whole family will enjoy good health luck. So aside from the bed placements enhance the East corners to look after your health.Beautiful healthy plants placed in the East will activate Health luck for everyone who lives in that  home .Remember to always  remove dead and diseased plants   as  they  will attract bad energy . However the East corner in your bedroom is the one place you do not place plants as it is not a Feng Shui practice to place  plants in the bedroom.

The only plants that you do not place in your home are cacti .Cactuses with their thorns aren’t considered auspicious in Feng Shui as they become ‘poison arrows’ and these will not be good for the your health.

Let’s Invite Good Chi into your Home

Let’s Invite Good Chi into your Home

Feng Shui teaches us how to capture  good energy and dispel the bad.In this article I have focused on how to invite and enhance  good energy ,good Chi,into your home.

Sheng Chi….dragon’s cosmic breath…. is good energy. This Chi brings good fortune, success, recognition, prosperity and harmony to the home. Go into the room that you feel the most comfortable , this room has Sheng Chi.

Shar Chi …killing breath…is  bad energy. This Chi brings misfortunes.Once again, go into the room that causes you the most stress or makes you makes you uncomfortable, this room has Shar Chi.

I am going to show how to invite good Chi into your home and deflect the bad and to become more aware of the energy that surrounds you and more importantly …why.

For all who work from home these principles apply to your  home office as well.

For Chi to bring good energy it must be allowed to flow slowly and meander. It must not move too fast as it will scatter and disperse or be allowed to stagnate in dark corners or in unused rooms.

The open space in front of your main door is referred to as the Bright  Hall and this is where the Chi will enter your home, through your front door.This space is very important so ensure it is clear. Even more important ensure the Chi can find your front door! That it is not obscured by plants or scrubs, so the Chi can enter effortlessly. Your main door is the mouth of your home .


If you have to negotiate an obstacle course to get into your foyer or hallway  the  Chi will have too as well and it will stagnate there, you do not want this.Inside your home the Chi should  gently circulate and move through the hallways and into the adjoining  rooms .

The more the Chi curves and turns the better. It should slowly move around furniture. See if you can walk around your home without bumming into any furniture. Is your front door in a straight line with your back door ….down the end of a hallway,the Chi will flow right out the house taking all the good energy away. If you have a long hallway place a piece of furniture or a pot plant to slow  the flow down. Chi also enters  through the windows , so each day, open your front door and windows and invite  Sheng Chi into your home  bringing good fortune, prosperity and harmony .

Now lets deal with Shar Chi. What you do not want ,negative energy .Unorganized and cluttered areas in the home are the cause of negative  energy  Shar Chi ,which  may be the cause of unnecessary stress in your personal and work life.Clutter is the main cause of trapped energy, it blocks the natural flow of  energy and it will stagnate until you get rid of the clutter. …under beds,on top of cupboards  and under stairs.Become more aware of rooms that are rarely used…open the windows.If you have too, rearrange your furniture so the Chi can flow. Once done  the energy will circulate  and move through your home once more. The stagnant energy is carried away and new fresh energy will begin to flow.

How to keep all that good Sheng Chi?In the East of your home the wood sector place  plants and fresh flowers.Even fake ones will do but not dried ones and I am not a fan of pot potpourri as it is made of dried flowers.Do not place cacti  or plants with spiky leaves in the house,always only keep plants with nice broad leaves inside.


Paintings,prints and photos that  suggest poverty,ugliness or sadness are not good Feng Shui .Ones that  you find inspiring , uplifting  ,full of beautiful colours, remind you of happy times  will  bring joy and happiness  to  your home .One of the best pictures to have in your home is one of your family.One in which all members are present and smiling .A photo that brings back happy memories.  Place it in a spot where the Chi, when it enters the home will take this energy through the house.

Candles are always are good addition to the South sector of your home as the South is the fire sector,and candles along with a bright table lamp will enhance this sector.In the West sector place anything metallic………..all your loose coins.In the North ,which is the water element  a small water feature .If you have any crystals place these  in the center of your home ,as this is the Earth element as is the Southwest and Northeast.This will bring good fortune to the whole family.
