This explanation differs from another I recently heard about classic Feng Shui, which is that the direction of your front door doesn’t necessarily indicate the facing side. Rather, you may have a side of your home without a door which faces an area of activity such as a highway, shopping center or even school, and that is considered the facing side. This is the case with my home as my front door faces my neighbor’s front door and the residential community, but the side of my home without a door faces a commercial area with stores, a school and a highway.
The Golden Rooster or the Red Rooster is a lucky element for those who want to obtain a promotion. On the other hand, it is beneficial when placed in the office because it balances the energies, it improves communication and it helps to establish new contacts and relationships. Chinese people like to decorate it with lucky coins and to place it in the north or south side of the office.
If you’ve been reading my articles for a while, you might get tired of me repeating “no clutter, no clutter, no clutter”. I have to keep doing it, though. Clutter is stuck energy, and the essence of cluttered spaces – as well as the dominant energy of people who live in cluttered spaces – is based on fear mixed with pessimism. Hardly a quality of energy that can help one attract wealth! Yes, of course, I know that clearing clutter is not easy, and yes, I know that it might take time to get rid of all your clutter. All you have to do, though, is commit to clearing it, and then follow an easy feng shui clutter clearing system.
In other words, do not expect that after all the feng shui improvements, your true love will come knocking on your door or that your current partner will love you even if you never make the effort to spend time together. I hate to break it to you, but feng shui is NOT magic, nor is it a love spell. But I can tell you this: it’ll definitely help a great deal if you put in that effort. You’ll notice that your relationship will face less hurdles, and your love life will grow stronger each day like a tree that’s properly fed with clean air and water.
TV and computer screens emit high EMFs which are dangerous for your health and they often come with connotations of work, noise and stress, which is not what you want in your bedroom. If you do want a TV in your room, make sure it is turned off for at least an hour before you go to bed. Not only for Feng Shui benefits, but because this is proven to help you get a better night’s sleep.
Working with your back to a door puts you in a compromising position, even if you don’t realize it right now. If you reposition your desk and work facing a door, you may be surprised to feel how much more powerful that position is in space. If your desk is positioned so that your back has to be to a door, or if there is no way to change the desk position, put a mirror above your desk or a reflective surface on your desk that enables you to see the door in the reflection. In essence, no one can “sneak up on you” when you face a door or can see it.
I can’t tell you how many clients we’ve worked with who say that finding love is a top priority, and yet their spaces are completely uninviting or unsupportive of a relationship. There might be only one comfy reading spot, just one good coffee mug, or a bed too small to comfortably sleep two people. The point is not to make some voodoo doll of exactly the person you’re calling in but to make your space, however subconsciously, feel welcoming to the person you choose to invite in. In terms of design, this means making room for another person to be comfortable and relaxed in your bedroom with you.
All of these Feng Shui tips will help you to create the energetic foundation that is welcoming a healthy, harmonic, and loving relationship into your life. Don't forget to do your part by tending to what is going on within you so that you are emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually ready for your ideal relationship. It is important that we are the partner that we desire for ourselves.
Ultimately, I passed on the place that was otherwise pretty excellent because of this sinking feeling that brought all sorts of other annoying issues to light. A little bit of aromatherapy, even a stellar candle that you love, goes a long way in changing the experience of your space. Opening your windows to air out your home is another vital way to keep your space fresh and lovely.
You are in complete control of the lights in your bedroom. However, you have little or no control of the lights outside of your home. That is why you need blinds and curtains that can completely block out the light from the outside. If your current blinds or curtains have light shining through the cracks at night, it may be worthy to invest in double layered curtains to improve your sleep sleep.
Hello, I have a question about your article: “Feng Shui Tips for Money”. Your article says to replace any broken items in your home. We live in a rented apartment and the landlord did not do the usual fix-ups when the former tenants moved out. We moved in with the blinds broken in all four window, cracked closet doors, the door frame to the master bedroom is broken and won’t stay shut when closed (you can simply push the door open when “closed”, you don’t need to use the door knob to open/close the door), bathroom tiles messed up such that you have a hard time opening/closing the door and the closet inside the bathroom, problems with plumbing and the stove and refrigerator…crayola marks everywhere, cigarette burns in the carpets and you get the idea here. The apartment was in such a poor state, we refused to give the landlord a deposit unless we could do a walk-through with him and get it in writing about all the broken and poor conditions of everything. He had a fit and would not do it. We’ve been living here since late August, 2015. He finally fixed the plumbing issues and our heater. But that’s all he fixed. We are not responsible for any of the other things, so how would your Feng Shui tips to repair broken things in the home really apply in our situation? What would be a “work around” for NOT doing repairs to a rented apartment, when they were already there when we moved into the unit? Also, about the citrine in the windowsill.. we have four large windows, each with a windowsill. Do I put a piece of citrine in just one of them or in all four? If in only one windowsill, which one? Kitchen, living room, master bedroom (this is being used as our temple/cat room) – or in our bedroom?
This tip does not have much to do with classical feng shui but can help some individuals. Some people are just uncomfortable displaying affection publicly. But sometimes it’s not just the sight, it’s the sound as well. If your partner is more introverted, you can improve bedroom romance by closing the window or installing heavier doors to increase privacy that’ll shield not just sight but sound as well.
Find out your Kua number and your lucky directions so that you can be energized by good energy from your best or lucky feng shui directions.

For example, if your Kua number is 1, it is best to face one of the following directions: Southeast, East, South, or North.

Hello Sandi! That is a quite a tough Feng shui situation. We would recommend just doing your best. You cannot fix the things that are out of control, but it will affect the energy of your living environment. If there are certain things you can fix with your landlord’s permission, we would recommend trying to do so. However, there is not really a work around for this Feng shui tip, as broken things in the home do create both an energy and financial blog many times. For the citrine, if you were going to choose one window to place the citrine, you should choose the one which gets the most sunlight. That way the Citrine will be constantly recharged by the light.
“Sometimes a very tidy house still has a lot of clutter,” says Lohan. You may put things out of sight and keep the place neatly organized, but you’re still weighed down by a lot of attachment, and that drains your energy. It can be hard to let go of everything that’s holding you back, so take it slow. You don’t have to overhaul your entire home at once. Start with one room or even one box. If you’re having trouble releasing, consider bringing in a family member, a friend or a professional who isn’t as emotionally connected to your things as you are.

However, do NOT place your bed directly facing the door (in the same alignment as the door) as this is believed in to be the position of the dead ("to go feet first"). It is also best to avoid placing your bed directly underneath a beam or a window. The window will deprive you of the feeling of security we all need when we sleep, and the beam will have a "cutting" effect. If something cuts you from above, you will feel subconsciously threatened by it.
Chi energy stagnates whenever there's clutter. Messy crowded closets, drawers, stacks of papers/books, and piles of clothes are the worst culprits for bogging down chi energy and your life. Free up this trapped energy by sorting, removing, giving away forgotten articles of clothing and organizing. Don't let dirty dishes pile up in the sink or trash to overflow receptacles. Use a closet organizing system to get the most out of your storage space. Use a declutter list to help you stay on track.
Citrine crystal is long known for attracting wealth, so it's often used in feng shui wealth applications. Citrine is also known to strengthen one's self-esteem, so it can be a good choice for your personal jewelry. You can also use a popular wealth stone, like pyrite. One creative way to display crystals is to place them on a feng shui gem tree in your home office for a beautiful look full of meaning and clarity.
