Do you always catch your sleeve on a certain door knob? Stub your toe on a certain table? Then ditch it! Anything that can physically hurt you tells your subconscious mind that your home is not a safe place to be. Replace sharp-edged furniture with those that have rounded edges and remove from sight anything that suggests violence, such as knives.
The toilet holds a downward spiraling energy. When you close the lid, you are protecting chi (energy) from going down and away from you. Again, because of the water analogy, this is especially important! Listen to the language of our world and don’t “flush away” your finances. It’s also a good idea to tie red ribbons on the pipes behind the toilet, with the intention of protecting your finances once and for all.
When considering feng shui for creating money and prosperity, remember that purple is the color of wealth. Green’s good too—think of the greenback dollar. Red and blue are also good colors for the Wealth Corner. You certainly don’t have to use them all; I hope that you don’t—the result could be an eyesore. Pick one or possibly two of the colors that you think would look good together in the far left corner of your space and use rich tones of that color. If you’re planning to paint a wall or two anyway, the glory of paint is that it costs no more to add some pigment. Then you’ve got a nice big dose of the right color in your feng shui Money Corner. Consider giving it a try. Live with the right color in the right area for six months, and you’ll probably love the result so much that you wouldn’t consider painting over it.
If you happen to have an uncovered drain in your shower, bathtub, or any of your sinks – especially one that resembles a black hole – you unfortunately have a powerful visual affirmation of wealth and resources draining too quickly out of your bank account and life. Luckily, the solution is simple: take a trip to the hardware store and get yourself a drain cover.
According to Brophy, clinging to the past disturbs peace in the present. "Keeping objects out of obligation or reluctance to let go is an issue," Brophy says. "I worked with a client who kept a bed frame that her husband used to sleep in with his ex-wife. Every time she looked at that bed frame she was reminded of his past. If you have furnishings or artwork that you fought your family member to obtain, or won in divorce proceedings, evaluate the energetic cost of keeping such things."
Mainly, be aware that this annual feng shui star brings you inspiring energy to fulfill your career dreams. As mentioned before, it is best to find a way — a subtle way — to bring an image or an item here that sparks the vision for your career success. Be mindful to have this image in the best colors for this area in 2019, which are earthy colors, or, if it is a small image, use the Metal element colors (white and silver). Of course, a combination of these colors and elements will work best!

Refrain from positioning your bed directly under a beam. A beam may create feelings of pressure that can disrupt your sleep. If you have no other options, cover the beam with fabric or hang 2 bamboo flutes from the beam with the mouthpieces pointed downward. This will help block some of the unwanted energy coming from above the bed. The idea is that you don't want to feel threatened in your sleep.
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.
Please see the layout of the new house. My drawing is poor, hope you are able to understand the directions. The utility shelves in the drawing are wall mounted and covers quarter of the wall. Below is the space for washing machine. I am planning to remove the right portion of the shelf and install the Pooja Mantap over there since it is the North east direction. Below the platform there are modular shelves for keeping jars. Below the sink there is a shelf for the pipe, we have kept the dustbin inside the shelf.

Anjie Cho, feng shui expert, interior designer and creator of Holistic Spaces, says, “Your bedroom represents you. Other than maybe your office, you spend a majority of your time in your bedroom, especially if you get six to eight hours of sleep at night.” And that’s when the so-called magic happens: “Because you’re unconscious and in a passive state while you sleep, you’re open to absorbing energy around you more easily,” Cho says.

If you’ve ever had a chat with a real estate agent about dated house fixtures in tacky gold finish, they will tell you that these houses are much loved by most Asian buyers. I’ve had clients who lived in such houses, and even though they hated the fixtures they feared changing them because that would be bad feng shui. The only bad feng shui was actually keeping those dated fixtures!
I’m hoping you can help me with wealth and health areas of my home. Recently, all of us (kids and parents) have gotten injured and/or sick. Also, our finances are not moving forward. We are trying to buy a house, but face one obstacle after another. I’ve drawn a rough layout of our two story home. We are currently renting. Our landlords had a mirror above the stairs, but removed it when they did some repairs. I’m wondering if that is when the troubles started.

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.
The bed placement is significant because we spend a third of our time sleeping. Sleeping direction is important, and should always be factored in because this can affect all aspects of health, wealth and relationships positively or negatively. However, if bed placement is based on one of your four good directions and you happen to have your feet pointing to a long hallway or the door to is adjacent to your bed, close the door at night to avoid chi or energy from disturbing your sleep.
Feng shui is a set of principles to help align one’s living space with who they are and what they want. The practice has been around for thousands of years, but it’s not stodgy or outdated. In fact, it’s seen quite the Western resurgence in recent years, with thousands of trained feng shui consultants currently offering services across the country. Oddly enough, even Donald Trump reportedly hired a feng shui consultant back in 1995.
Find the best furniture layout with your bed in the so-called commanding position and/or facing one of your lucky feng shui directions. Have access to your bed from both sides and have (no matter how small) nightstands on both sides of the bed. Be mindful not to have a mirror facing your bed or any sharp angles pointing at you while you sleep. Understand what makes a good feng shui bedroom layout and see if yours is close to having good feng shui. If you feel like moving your furniture from time to time, this is perfectly fine, just be sure you know the best spots for your major furniture pieces. A good placement of furniture — especially of your bed — in your bedroom will allow for a stable and harmonious flow of energy that every room needs (and especially a bedroom).
Feng shui. It’s one of these things most people have heard of, but fewer people understand. At LOVESPACE, we are all for anything that could help us to live a bigger life so we wanted to learn what Feng Shui is all about. We found that it literally means “wind-water”. But that isn’t very helpful, so we did some more research. We focussed on bedroom Feng Shui, because this is believed to be the most important room in the house to get the energy right in. LOVESPACE have teamed up with the guys over at Simba Sleep to find out how they approach Feng Shui in the bedroom and how you can create the ultimate sleep space at home.
The first step to creating a calm, relaxed environment is making sure your surroundings are clean and clutter-free. Do a deep clean and pull everything out of your closet, vacuum under the bed, and force yourself to get rid of stuff you don't love. "Evaluate what's around you and allow yourself to streamline," Brophy says. "If you have clothes you know you'll never wear again, give them to charity. Don't let them take up your energy."

"The front door is very important in feng shui," says Benko. After all, it's the main portal through which energy enters your home, remember? From the outside, she suggests "think of the chi as a first-time visitor trying to find your home—you want to make sure it's clearly lit, well-marked, and the address visible." On the inside, you want to make sure you're not walking directly into a wall—"it can metaphorically make you feel like you're up against a wall every day," she says.
