In Feng Shui, each area and corner of the house relates to some aspect and aspirations of you and your life. Any missing corner, cluttered area or dark area has an influence on the occupant’s life with regard to the specific corner. Your home is a constantly changing reflection of your life, so whatever changes you make in your home, you make to yourself. Balancing the Feng Shui in a room requires specific adjustments and as a house-maker, it calls for great care on the part of the women to ensure that this balance is maintained irrespective of the fact who is using the room.
A Feng Shui house is a house where all the objects are in perfect harmony to each other whether we talk about the Feng Shui elements contained in them or the particular colours that have been used to enhance the space and in turn create the serene feel of spirituality. The Feng Shui is about balancing energies, of animate with inanimate and that of the soul with that of the universe, so that you get the positive energies of the universe flowing through the entire spaces in your house.
By relating to the spiritual dimension, Feng Shui becomes more relevant to our modern day life. With our demanding, high-pressure lifestyles today, we need ways with which we can enhance and bring in some much needed balance to our lives.
A home or business has interior factors and exterior factors that influence you and your mood. Shape of the house, floor plan, positions of bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, desks, have an unseen psychological effect on you. History of the house, electro-magnetic energies emitted by electrical connections and cable, telephone, satellite dishes can have either positive or negative effects on you depending upon the sort of person you are. Similarly, beams, lights, plants, water and influences of people surrounding you also have some role to play.
Some of the simple yet powerful remedy in Feng Shui are easy to adapt and aesthetically pleasing too. However, look for exterior factors creating bad Feng Shui to your premises:
- Look for main door being affected by “T-junction” or roads piercing, this is a serious affliction and needs remedy which would depend upon a proper analysis.
- Avoid barriers in front of the door such as light partitions where you have to navigate around them to move to the next space. By ‘opening up’ the space, this technique immediately expands your front door sector many times over.
- Vaastu and Feng Shui emphasise on the benefits of moving water to activate good luck. Water features like aquariums and fountains can activate positive Chi and usher in prosperity if placed in the living rooms and foyer east and north sectors.
- The facets of crystal and cut glass are especially potent when combined with light. Raw amethyst, quartz or other natural crystals will be extremely harmonious in the southwest sector to strengthen marital harmony and romance luck.
