When focusing on Feng Shui we often focus on the interior energy of our home and forget that everything around us has just as much an impact. In Feng Shui everything is significant, the shape of our home, the area around us, the street on which we live, the number of our house. All play a part in supporting us in our lives. In this article I focus on how the number of our house affects the energy inside and outside our home and the impact that it can have on our lives.

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of design which considers the flow of energy to determine the placement of buildings, furniture, landscape features and much more. The goal of Feng Shui is to create an environment that has a pleasant flow and arrangement to it, as this will make the area more attractive and calming. Careful and accurate planning as well as the installation of a pond liner and fountain pump will help to create a Feng Shui environment.

Feng Shui – Understanding of the Universe Via “Ch-I”

The term Feng Shui literally translates as “wind and water” in English it signifies the energies of wind and water; it uses the laws of both heaven and earth for increasing the positivity level at any place.

The short answer to the question posed in this article title is Yes and No. For a contradictory answer like this, I need to elaborate. First of all, the general consumer needs a better understanding of exactly what Feng Shui is. This ancient tradition is a body of knowledge, which has tracked how people and other living animals are affected by their man-made and natural environment. It is one of many different influences upon us and our Earth. Just so, the laws of gravity affect absolutely everyone, but some apparently more than others just based on appearances.

If Feng Shui affects everyone, then it is logical to conclude that the remedies will work for everyone and in theory, all the time. But here's the clincher: We still have other influences upon us which are separate from Feng Shui, as evidenced by two people living in the exact same space, but having different experiences and even a different life path entirely. We still have free will. We also have a destiny which supersedes our immediate physical surroundings. So, at one end of the spectrum we have free will which can be over riding and changing and on the other end of the spectrum, we come into each life time with certain non-negotiable lessons to learn and a destiny to fulfill. Feng Shui sits in between these two extremes.

Since we are all cosmic dust and made up of similar ingredients, with all of us having a skeletal system, nervous system, blood, etc, we may all respond similarly to our environments as well as the adjustments or “remedies” which we apply to those spaces. The degree in which these adjustments work will be reliant on many other factors which can change the income from slightly, to significantly. A specific example may be a house which sits vulnerable at the end of a T-juncture. This is a well-known potential problem in the placement of a house in relation to a street. And yet, if we had two houses with this circumstance, the results may vary after an adjustment has been applied. If both houses were to put up a wall or hedge to buffer the air currents coming directly to the house, one household may still fare better than another depending on how heavily trafficked each oncoming street is. There are many nuanced and minor differences which make every single environment unique.

To sum up my point, I can say that remedies always work, but the degree to which they work may vary depending on no less than a dozen other factors in every case. To further elaborate on my “no” response, as to whether remedies work all the time, fact is that people have different expectations. This is a big consideration because based on a person's subjective expectations, they will then report that a remedy is working or not working. After more than twenty years of consulting and seeing the responses and feedback from clients, I do not know how else to address this issue.

In a theoretical example, let us say that Person A does an adjustment to their home to help increase their income. Person A may then see a gradual increase in income that is sustained over time at about 10% increase. Person A might be satisfied on some level, but as with human nature, he may wonder if his income would have increased without any Feng Shui adjustment implied.

Now we have Person B, with a very similar environment, apply the same prosperity remedy and he sees a sudden, dramatic increase in income. This person may be very impressed with their advisor and also get a feeling that the adjustment had to have something to do with it because of such a quick response. And yet, if the increase in income quickly subsides, and appears to be only an isolated event, the Person B may later doubt that their remedy had anything to do with it, and call it coincidence, or just wonder why the increase in income was not sustained.

Person C may be very adventurous in this experiment and find themselves applying and taking away their prosperity remedy several times to see if there is a consistent correlation, where they can really attribute the remedy applied with the increase in income. We have seen people do something as simple as turn their fountains on and off over time to see if flowing water works better than still water.

Then there is Person D, who applies the prosperity remedy but sees no change at all in their income. Perhaps their income even decreases. This Person D is quite justified in concluding that remedies do not work all the time. However, we can not rule out that the remedy is still working, just not on the level of the expectations. Perhaps the remedy is simply keeping things from being worse, were there no remedy applied at all. In this regard, I have known some people who verified that once remedies were removed, things got worse, so they had to admit that the adjustment was working, but just not on the level we all would have hoped for.

To conclude, I can say with confidence that Feng Shui adjustments work for most of the people, most of the time. But we have destiny on one end and free will on the other, factored into the results. And we also have subjective expectations influence the impressions people have about what is working or not working in their favor.

How to Feng Shui a Bedroom

Bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house where we spend time while sleeping and recharging with energy for the new coming day. This environment is considered as peaceful and quite, it needs to be protected from negative energy and supplied with good circulation of fresh air. Read below the best ways on how to Feng Shui a bedroom and turn it to a real sanctuary!

According to the basic elements of Feng Shui, the bedroom should be as far as possible from the entrance and the front door. It is believed that the good energy flow will not go out from the door when it is not near to the bedroom.

Windows are also very important for the location of your bedroom. Chinese people explained that the positive energy named “chi” tends to flow between the door and the windows, which means it's not good to place your bed where no energy is flowing.

For your sense of security and calmness, you have to choose a position for your bed from which you will be able to see the door of the bedroom. However, do not forget that your bed also needs to be as far as possible from the door.

What can save your “chi” while you are sleeping is an enough distance from the window in the room. It has been proven that sleeping with head towards the window makes your chi to flow away and you to awake more tired and exhausted.

As you may see, the main house elements when it comes to Feng Shui are the doors, the windows and the interactions between them. Be careful when building your home and make sure you do it in such a way that you can get all the benefits from it.

When you are at home, always make sure the doors are closed especially the ones of the bathroom and the toilet. According to yin and yang, these are the places with the highest energy circulation.

Another widespread believing is about the chi protection during the night hours. It is advisable to supply your bed with a strong and stable headboard, so it can protect your positive energy and recharge it.

For the couples and their strong relationship, it is vital to place your bed relative to the wall which is up against. Try to choose such a position for your bed, so it can be equal for both you and your partner. A strong headboard or near tables of the bed talk about stability and protection in the relationship.

Considering all that, finish the Feng Shui of your bedroom with choosing proper lighting. Ideally, you should prefer soft lighting that reflects in your room and avoid small ceiling lamps that light directly over your bed and where you sleep.

Decorate your bedroom with beautiful décor floors that inspire you and bring you positive thoughts, that help you relax and enjoy your free time. Opt for pastel colors and avoid dark and too cold ones. Mirrors are not a good idea in the bedroom, however, you can place one somewhere you will not see yourself while sleeping. Do not forget to de-clutter the room frequently and to keep the space under your bed free of any dust, dirt and useless items.

Following these simple but crucical tips to Feng Shui your bedroom, you can make sure you will bring positive energy flow, happiness and health to your home!

Feng Shui Taboos for Bathrooms:
When buying a house or an apartment, make sure that the toilet is never facing or located next to the main door, facing the staircases or facing the dining room, or even in the dining room. Some websites recommend activating the energy in the bathroom by painting the walls in a green color, if the bathroom faces an Eastern or Southeastern direction. Do not activate energy in bathroom, what you can do – you can suppress bad chi.

If your bathroom located at:
If the bathroom is located in the Center, North East or South West of the home and flushing away your health, education, luck and relationships, you could place a full-length mirror on the outside of the bathroom door (not on the inside of the bathroom) to create an illusion that the bathroom is not there, and to deflect any energy that tries to escape through it. Make sure that mirror does not reflect the main door. The Center, North East and South West are earth energies. You can place a large crystal in each corner or to suppress bad chi by the metal energy, hang five-layered wind chimes or rod-metal wind chimes, or you can use a destructing Wood Element.

North:
A bathroom located in the North of the home flushes away your career luck. North is a water element. You can use an earth element to destruct bad chi, like a stone or you can use a Wood Element by placing a plant to suppress Water Energy.

East and Southeast: East and Southeast are Wood Elements. You can use a destructed Element Metal, a five-layered wind chime or a five rod-metal wind chime. To suppress the Wood Element, use a Fire Element, such as keeping the light on all the time.

South:
If a bathroom is located in the South, it belongs to Recognition and Fame lucks. You can use a destructive Water Element, or an Earth Element; ie, a stone in order to suppress Fire Energy.

West and Northwest:
West and Northwest belong to Metal Energy and rules Descendants and Mentor lucks. To suppress Metal Energy, use a Water Element. To distract the Metal Energy, use a Fire Element.

If you have a bathroom on the second floor directly above the kitchen or front door: It could generate health and wealth problems, because bad energy poisons the entire kitchen. In order to remedy this issue, one must place Earth Elements in the corners of the kitchen to stabilize the energy, and then hang a crystal ball in the center of the room. You can also hang a small round mirror to the ceiling above the drain in the bathroom.

Note: Some Feng Shui practitioners recommend hanging hanging round mirror to the ceiling above the drain to revert the downward effect. Recommended to use 3 “mirror.

A Feng Shui Bedroom With Positive Energy

A bedroom with good chi (energy) is a bedroom, where harmonious-chi energy fills in and envelops the bedroom. It is an inviting and calm place, where you may have a quick nap or a good nights sleep. It is important to remember to not activate anything in the bedroom, as the bedroom is a Yin…

A bedroom with good chi (energy) is a bedroom, where harmonious-chi energy fills in and envelops the bedroom. It is an inviting and calm place, where you may have a quick nap or a good nights sleep. It is important to remember to not activate anything in the bedroom, as the bedroom is a Yin place.

Do not have any flowers in the bedroom, since in many cultures it is forbidden to have flowers in the bedroom, as flowers steal luck from you.

Also remember some feng shui taboos in the bedroom:

Do not sleep with your feet facing towards a door.

Do not sleep with beams overhead, or with a headboard over your bed. If you have beams, you can hang a crystal or cover them with a piece of cloth.

Do not sleep with a mirror reflecting your bed.

Do not have any water features or an aquarium with fish, or any other pets in your bedroom.

Do not paint your bedroom in a bright color. Use pastel wall colors (depending on compass direction) bright bed cover acceptable, but everything should be in balance. Remember bedroom is a Yin territory.

Keep your bedroom clean; do not keep your bedroom cluttered, even behind the door or in the corners. Do not have any paperwork in your bedroom (some people like to work in the bedroom and have a lot of papers, specifically documents with negative information; ie, letters from attorneys or collection agencies).

Do not keep your bed in the corner, as it is important to have access to your bed from both sides.

Do not hang photos in very sharp frames or arrow-like ornaments pointing towards you or your partner. (I remember when my son used to live in a college dorm, he stuck a picture of arrows on the wall pointing towards his bed, and when I saw it I told him that it was not good for him, as he had placed himself under poisoning arrows, equivalent to a double negative effect; in result, you are always under attack. He immediately removed all sticky arrows from the wall and after several days he called me and told me, that he actually felt much better, and that everything that was wrong before, was now improving and from then on, he believes in Feng Shui). Try to keep only things in your bedroom that give you good memories and good feelings.

As we know there are four good and four bad directions for a person. The headboard should face one of your four good directions.

Buy two of the same nightstands, lamps and pillows for your bedroom. Have two happy pictures – one is yours, another of your partner. If you have pictures of people, make sure those pictures have two people; never have portrait of a lonely woman in your bedroom, nor in your house. If you need to improve your relationship, get two Mandarin ducks or a double heart, and place them in the Southwest corner of your bedroom (Southwest referees to romance and relationship), a pair of elephants with trunks down (trunks up symbolizes protection) and place them facing inwards to symbolize good luck. In other words, always keep pairs in your bedroom.

If you are looking for a new home, finding an excellent feng shui casa that has the potential to create excellent feng shui for your life should be a top priority for you. Let's put it this way – moving into wrong home could have devastating effects on your wealth matters, health and love life, so it is important to do the due diligence.

With the rocky road of the real estate market in recent years, many people are wondering what to look for in their new home search. Some things can be fixed easily, while others may not be changeable at all. Here are some things for you to think about when house hunting for your ideal feng shui casa.

How to find your ideal feng shui casa

1. If the home had previous inmates, do you know why they left? If it was for a bad reason such as a death in the family or bankruptcy, make sure you can find the obvious feng shui reason or environmental factor. If you can not, my advice would be to keep looking.

2. Is there a secure and empowering place where you can position your bed in the bedroom? Bedrooms with sloping ceilings or overhead beams should be avoided.

3. What is the number of the house in the street? The combination of numbers that make up the house number will have a specific energy associated with them. You may want to think about your own personal situation and what you are trying to enhance in your life at this time (it may be wealth matters or relationship matters for example). Trying to pick a house number that corresponds with that energy is a good idea.

4. How visible is the front door from the street? It should be inviting and easy to locate for visitors who come to your new house for the first time.

5. Consider the shape of the floor plan. If there are missing palaces, make sure that the home is not weak in one of the areas that you can not risk being weak in.

6. The first floors of the building should be at the same level as, or ideally above the level of the street. You should have to walk up to the front door, rather than down to it from the street level.

7. Do not move into the building at the end of a T junction.

8. Do not move into a single storey home with two taller, multi-storey homes either side of it.

Let’s face it, since the disastrous turn of events in the worldwide economy of late 2008, the housing market is still far from healthy. Nevertheless, life goes on and we still need to move house from time to time. But how do you sell your property when very few people are looking to buy? Feng shui may be just the solution you need and here’s why:

A lot of people ask me, “How fast does feng shui work?”

That's because most of you want to know how soon you can expect to see results in your life after implementing feng shui into your home. Those with little knowledge and experience may either have pessimistic or overly optimistic expectations about exactly how much and how soon the changes they make in their home can start to help them by having an impact on their lives.

How fast and by what degree feng shui can start to have an impact on your life depends on your personal circumstances. There is a vast multitude of possible situations relating to each person's love life and relationships, health and well-being, wealth matters and career goals. The feng shui concepts that are best to implement for a specific problem have varying levels of success and various time lines until we start noticing improvements in our lives. It also depends on whether the problem that you are trying to eradicate from your life is a persistent one, which will require a long term solution and therefore take a longer time to resolve, or wherever the problem is only temporary and can therefore be resolved sooner . Examples of persistent problems include the following:

• Since my efforts, I have never been able to save money
• I feel as though my love life has been none-existent for years

Long term problems such as these require long term solutions. To think that you will be able to adjust the balance of energy in your home and start seeing immediate results is unrealistic. If you make the proper changes in your home, you can expect to see modest results within a few months, depending on the severity of the situation.

Examples of situations in your life which may be temporary, and will there before require different solutions include things such as:

• In the last few months, I feel like my relationship with my other half has become stale and lacks passion
• I am recently having some difficulties growing my personal investments (a problem I did not have until recently)

Another point to remember is that feng shui relates to your Earth luck, and your own personal effort to overcome your own challenges is another factor that will affect the amount of time it takes. In Chinese culture there are also 'Man Luck' (which is your own personal luck based on your efforts in life) and 'Heaven Luck' (which was instilled into you at birth, and is something you have no control over). Although we can not do much to control our Heaven Luck, we can do things to adjust our 'Man Luck' and our Earth Luck. Some quick adjustments to your home can yield results within a few days if the problem itself is a temporary one. This problem may be caused by the Chinese calendar year changing (from the 4th of February every year), which will mean that the energy of your home could have suddenly been altered. In these cases, making the proper adjustments to your environment can yield almost immediate effects, but it requires you to have enough knowledge to be able to make the correct changes in your home.

How To Use Feng Shui To Cure Insomnia

If you suffer from, or have every suffering from insomnia (as I have in the past), you will know how much it can wreak havoc on your daily routine and suck the energy out of you. Knowing how to use feng shui to cure insomnia can be just what you need to get your body clock back into sync with the rest of your timezone.

I should point out right now at the start of this article that for any health issue, including insomnia, it would be negligent to assume feng shui can be the be-all-and-end-all solution to your problems. For any health matter, you should always consult your physician as a first step. However, unlocking the powers of feng shui can be a very beneficial secondary step towards curing your insomnia.

Feng Shui To Cure Insomnia

You have probably tried fixing potential causes of the problem such as secret arrows (often called poison arrows), ensuring you are not sleeping below sloping ceilings and overhead beams, etc.

Other things that you should think about are likely causes that you will not have considered until now. Anything that is plugged into an electrical socket may be causing electromagnetic vacancies in your bedroom. You should unplug nearby lamps, sleep far away from the fuse box of your home.

Also consider changing your hair dryer to use a low EMF (electro-magnetic forcefield) one. Although expensive, these can certainly help because regular hair dryers with motors inside them produce and emit a huge amount of EMF energy directly onto your head, often just before you go to bed at night.

• Avoid having the bed in a corner of the room.
• Avoid having the bed next to a window.
• Changing the wall colors of the bedroom to pastel or any other soothing colors may help.
• Avoid having the bed directly in line with the door. Also do not sleep with soles of the feet pointing the doorway. This position is known as 'coffin position' and is unlucky.
• If you have an attached bathroom, always keep the bathroom door closed and also keep it clean. Make sure you keep the toilet seat down when not in use.
• Use the bedroom only for sleep or relaxation and not for work.
• Keep the Bedroom free of clutter. Also avoid too much furniture in the bedroom.
• Do not have water features in the bedroom.

Eradicating all of these potential offending factors could give you a much better chance of getting a good night's sleep, so that you feel revitalized for the next day, whether it be at work, a day out or a day spent pottering around the house.
