House and Garden

  • Remove all rubbish, clutter and bad smells from each room in the house and garden as this leads to blockages.
  • Throw out unwanted goods, as this suggests you are holding on to the past.
  • Fix flaking paint as this suggests tiredness.
  • Fix damaged, spouting roof tiles or window seals if they or any part of the house looks rundown as this represents a gradual decline in health.
  • Repair leaky taps as this suggests gradual loss of income.
  • Healthy plants, fresh flowers, nice smells (aromatherapy) and good music attract good energy and lift your spirits.
  • Keep the garden beautiful to entice opportunities to come into one's life. Also keep it free from clutter as this signifies worry and prevents one from being focused.
  • Maintain a good supply of fresh air by opening windows and allowing the air to circulate.
  • Avoid sleeping near electrical equipment as the electrical fields they emit are potentially harmful to your health.

Entrance

  • The energy coming through the door is the single most important factor that will determine how prosperous the occupants will be
  • The location of the door with regards to the sectors of the home, indicate a priority to the occupants, therefore a person who has their front door located in the North sector, suggests that their career is very important to them
  • Make sure there is nothing in direct alignment with the door such as a tree or telegraph pole. To remedy this place a Bagua mirror over the door so it is reflecting the Sha Qi
  • The path to the front door should be wide & spacious & well lit. Curved windy paths leading to the main entrance are auspicious
  • A beautiful picture placed on the wall opposite the main door is used to encourage energy into the home & therefore opportunities to come into your life
  • Your main door should always open inwards into a wide space to invite the Qi & therefore opportunities into ones life
  • Place two wide leaved plants next to the main door to help entice the energy in such as peace lilies
  • Avoid facing a dark, pokey room, an interior staircase, mirror, stove, sink, fireplace, the door of a toilet, laundry, bathroom or bedroom. To remedy this keep the doors closed or place a screen between the doors

Bedroom

  • The bed head should be against a solid wall. This will provide you with a sense of support & security when sleeping
  • You should be able to see the whole room while lying in bed
  • Avoid placing the foot of the bed in direct alignment with the door as this is the coffin position
  • If the bedroom or bathroom door can be seen from the front door it can turn the energy yin. This may make the occupants lack motivation and feel fatigued and lazy.
  • Your bed should not be located under an exposed beam
  • Avoid mirrors as they are harmful to relationships especially if they are directly opposite the bed. Remove them or cover them over while sleeping
  • Avoid clutter as Qi should flow easily through the room. It is particularly important that you do not store anything under the bed
  • Bedrooms in the East are said to be auspicious as they catch the rising sun. This entices the occupants to get up & make something of their lives
  • Red candles in the South west (relationship) sector of the room are a romantic feature which will encourage intimacy amongst a couple. (never leave them unattended)

Study

  • It is essential that you have a solid wall behind you as it will provide more backing for your ideas & lends authority to your presence
  • You should be able to see who is coming through the door. This gives you a sense of being in control of your work
  • You should also see the whole room from your desk. This will ensure you have mastery over all you do, you will think more clearly, your judgement will be sound & you will be respected
  • Clear clutter, a cluttered desk reflects a cluttered mind
  • Plants, flowers & wind chimes are great in a study or office as they provide yang Qi to the whole room. This encourages you to be productive, maintain good concentration & obtain good ideas
  • You should position your desk so that you can easily see out the window whilst accessing natural light
  • Good ventilation is important, open windows are great
  • You should face one of your good directions when studying or working
