6. Restroom. Using a person’s Kua, the restroom can be BOTH a good and a bad place for plants. Plants in a restroom located in an “inauspicious” or “unlucky” area have the ability to amplify the negative energy of that area. On the other hand, for restrooms in “auspicious” or “lucky” areas, plants have the ability to amplify the positive energy, which can counter the negative feng shui brought by the restroom.
Feng shui-wise, candles bring the potency and vitality of the Fire feng shui element. Small candles are welcomed anywhere in your home without restrictions. When it comes to decorating with bigger candles that have a stronger presence, especially if they are in Fire element colors such as red, pink, purple, yellow or orange, it is good to follow the basic feng shui guidelines for displaying candles.

I see your concern, because Wood controls the Earth element in the Northeast. First, I would check whether your plants are really in the Northeast. You’ll need to divide your floor plan into 8 pieces, according to the 8 cardinal directions. If they’re really in the Northeast, you can either (1) place smaller plants and/or (2) introduce some fire element to weaken the wood energy.
based in the Daoist premise that we are all One, and everything is made up of these same five energies. The galaxies, planets, rivers, mountains, animals, plants, and humans all consist of these elements, and each is interdependent on another for sustaining life. In other words, we humans are made of the same energy components as the trees, the sun, rivers, the earth, and mountains.
In traditional feng shui, the center of your floor plan (if you draw it out and make a big X through it from corner to corner), is a great place for yellow to create a grounded and healthy space. Yellow can make your eyes tired, so it isn't a great color for notepads and website backgrounds. Yellow is also a color associated with stimulating the intuition in some schools of thought.

You can't benefit from the positive energies (or opportunities) that flow through your front door if they zip right out the back door. If you open the front door and there's a direct line to the back door or a window, that's runaway chi. "You want chi to run in a meandering pattern so it can deposit good energy throughout your home," says Varone. You can stop runaway chi by placing furniture or some other decorative object in or near the questionable path and by using rugs to impede energy flow. Hanging a room separator or a faceted crystal near one of the doors will help, too.
2. Generates Happiness. Multiple studies have cited that plants in the workplace increased employee satisfaction. Further, flowers are found to have the greatest impact. Research conducted at Rutgers shows that flowers have an immediate impact on happiness. The researchers were even shocked, because 100% of the people responded to flowers with a true or excited smile.
Use your feng shui birth element to help create a home that nourishes and supports your energy. For example, if your birth element is Fire, you can introduce the expressions of the Fire element, such as triangular shapes or the Fire colors: red, orange, purple, magenta, pink, and yellow. You will also want a strong Wood element in your home, as Wood feeds the Fire element in the productive cycle of the five feng shui elements.
As soon as you have decluttered, your tendency may be to immediately add new things. However, this second step is important! When I moved from Nashville to Los Angeles, I sold practically everything I owned to drive across the country in my car. I had thoroughly gone through the decluttering phase, but became discouraged when new things were not showing up yet. I realized that I had skipped this important step, of rearranging the feng shui of my new home. I was only in a temporary space living in an area that was only temporary. I was still getting my bearings, and a lot of rearrangement was needed as I lived in such a large city.

"Understanding the function of the room will indicate what type of furniture (and how many pieces of furniture) you really need," says Cerrano. "Then you can decide on the best arrangement for the overall room." For good feng shui, "it's also important to make sure the flow of movement to and around the furniture is accessible and unobstructed," she advises, which is something to consider before splurging on a side table.
As a feng shui consultant, I often hear stories from clients where sudden changes occur as soon as they move into a new space. Even if not familiar with feng shui, they can sense the direct relationship with something about the house affecting their luck, so to speak. The feng shui of the homes we choose to live in play an important role in our destiny while living there. The good news is that these imbalances can usually be remedied through feng shui. The five elements can be used as a remedy or a preventative medicine tool for you and your home. As you balance the five elements within a space, its occupants will receive the benefits. The healthier the feng shui of your home, the healthier you’ll be too.

The Goldon Pothos is said to be particularly good for removing formaldehyde and carbon monoxide. I like to recommend this to plant to the houseplant novice. It’s great for dead corners and areas above cabinets or shelves. In feng shui, these types of locations in your home attract and easily collect stagnant and dead energy. Because the Golden Pothos is easy to care for and low light, it’s perfect in these places. The plant will stay green, can be slightly neglected but still bring life energy to that area.
Clay, which is a derivative of the soil, is used to create a variety of materials, such as adobe, tile, and pottery. When fire is used in conjunction with clay, it hardens and creates a more solid substance. This is how the interplay of the Fire element and Earth element work according to feng shui and Daoist principles. On the other hand, adobe architecture is not conducive in wet climates because the Earth element and Water element are not compatible and will result in mold and mud.
After you select a commanding position for your couch, you'll probably want to know where to place your television. "Most TVs these days are so slim that you could mount it on the wall, which helps keep a more sleek and neat presentation," says Cerrano. When it comes to the question of whether or not you should you hang your television over your fireplace, Cerrano advises against it, if possible. "If that's the only location in the living room to place it, go for it," she says. "But if your intention is to create a space for greater connection and conversation with family, allowing the fireplace to be the main focal point is a much better option."
The gray color is usually treated as either boring (dull gray!) or as a sophisticated, upscale color. No matter what you think of it, gray color can sure bring beautiful feng shui energy to any space, as long as you choose wisely. The feng shui bagua areas that most benefit from the energy of gray color are West (Creativity), Northwest (Helpful People), and North (Career).

How can you strengthen both the Metal element of the visiting star, as well as the native Wood element energy of this bagua area? Is there a feng shui element that is good for both elements? Yes, luckily it is! In 2019, focus on the Earth element in the East area, as this will support both the Wood and the Metal elements and keep them both in balance.


Rectangular or square tables are OK in the dining room because, even though they have corners, no one will be sitting in front of a point, as they might with a coffee table. But if a circular or oval table fits perfectly, it's an excellent choice. Natural materials, like wood, feel solid and warm. The sound of glass hitting glass can cause tension. And people get overly protective with glass tables—anything too precious brings on nervous energy.
