Countering Negative Chi

February 8, 2021

Everything in the nature needs protection, be it a child or a  sapling, till they are able to manage and have the strength to handle things on their own. Similarly, when your personal energies are low and you feel weak, it’s logical to adapt things which makes you feel more positive and strengthen your personal aura fields and that of your living environment.

Protection strengthens the energy from inside, building the power reservoir and in turn aids to start using a discerning eye to see what potentially challenging energies surround you or your home. If one can sharpen the skills of being alert to the surroundings for potential threats or changes, it would ensure that one can avert major afflictions due to negative Chi (energy) and bad luck.

The fundamental principle for Feng Shui analysis is to protect your house or office, to check if it is being influenced by bad energies from any of the 10 primary directions — East, West, North, South, NE, NW, SE and SW, as well as from Sky and Earth.

This is a complex process and calls for professional help and advice. However, by being aware of the surroundings and the feel, one can develop the skill to sense the type of energy and take proactive measures.

The method is to counter the bad energy from a specific direction and enhance something which is good in your home to activate good feel. Using basic Feng Shui solutions based on the interaction of the cycle of the five elements is all that one needs to do. For this, a basic understanding of the Feng Shui elements would aid in choosing the right solution and it can be part of your home decor and lifestyle without having to make it look too obvious.

There are various kinds of negative Chi with many causes. However, few things can help unblock this in your home or workspace. Clutter is the main cause of trapped energy that blocks its natural flow. Like air, energy moves through your home, but if it bumps into a stack of old newspapers or other clutter, it can’t move freely and becomes trapped.

Blocked pathways and door entry zones are one of the biggest creators of negative energy especially if it is blocked due to placement of furniture or objects in pathways. Most importantly, a dirty untidy home creates stagnant energy.

Some of the basic protections against bad energy are: 

• Hang a natural bird feather which you find if the wind carries it to you it’s a good cure for minor problems and afflictions. Hang this above main door entry to drive away minor negative energies and deflect minor poison arrows. However, if the feather is forcibly taken or plucked, it is one of the most negative energies, hence beware!

• An image of an elephant protects against violence and robbery and also brings stability and harmony. Combination of a Elephant with a Blue Rhino figurine or statue is even more effective. Place it in the living room looking towards the main door.
