This post is not for you if you are full of energy, feeling happy all the time and everything is great in all aspects of your life. In this case, it’s you who should provide others with advice. This post is for those people who feel uncomfortable when they are at home, for those who don’t feel much vitality most of the time, who think that their personal growth is restrained by something.
If you already visited your physician and psychologist and this didn’t help, you should try to apply to the old Chinese philosophical system — feng shui. Before bringing objects which magnetize good luck and positive energy, you should get rid of subjects that can bother the flow of energy lines.
1) Don’t Put the Mirror in Front of Your Bed
Sleeping is an important part of our lives and we should protect our sleep from things that can bother us. There’s a belief that a mirror which is situated in front of your bed is a very bad idea. There are several explanations for why it is destructive for a person.
Almost all of them are based on the idea that a mirror is a portal between our world and a spirit-world. That way, when you are sleeping your soul can leave your body and stay in the mirror between the worlds. Or, a soul of a dead person can capture your body. According to another belief, the mirror in front of your bed can cause spouse cheating.
2) Don’t Keep Chipped Dishes
Dishes are a symbol of a family’s welfare. Chipped dishes, particularly cups can cause bad luck to your house. No matter how much you love a certain cup, if it is damaged, you shouldn’t drink from it. Otherwise, you can unintentionally welcome troubles to your home. Also, drinking and eating from cracked dishes is not good for your health because you can hurt yourself or eat harmful bacteria which thrive in the flaws.
3) Put the Water Out of Your Bedroom
Water is very good for people’s physical health but it can be harmful to our energetic balance according to feng shui. When decorating your bedroom, don’t put pictures with the image of water. No oceans, no seas, no lakes, even puddles or something of this nature should be represented in your bedroom. Images of water can cause illness and lack of vitality. It can be harmful to keep water in opened vessels in a bedroom as well. You shouldn’t particularly place fountains because running water symbolizes money loss. That’s also why if your pipes are damaged and leaking, try to call a plumber as soon as possible.
4) Refrain from having Certain Plants
Though according to feng shui plants, in general, are gratifying for your home, some of them can cause troubles for you. For example, a bonsai is a bad choice for you. This tree, as well as the cactus, is stunted and it just can’t symbolize growth. If you have a bonsai or a cactus, you might notice that you don’t prosper for some time. You should know that plants with prickles, except for roses, attract bad luck to your home. Instead, you should put plants with broad succulent green leaves.
5) Never Put Crystals Near the Entrance
Some feng shui ‘specialists’ say that crystals bring energy to your house – however, it is not actually true. Indeed, crystals have the ability to pull up and accumulate energy but this doesn’t mean that they will share that positive energy with your home. If you put crystals near, or what is even worse, above the doors or windows, crystals will take and keep inside themselves all positive energy that comes to your home. As crystals symbolize earth, having crystals above you means being under the earth, buried. This is not a good sign.
You can place a crystal near a window where it deflects sun rays and you can see a rainbow as a result, but put only one crystal in this case. There’s no need to bring myriads of crystals home and put them in each corner.
6) Don’t Hang the Calendar Near the Door
One more thing that shouldn’t be situated near the entrance door is a calendar. It is believed that the calendar symbolizes the fast flow of time. Energy gets in your dwelling through the front door and it changes according to objects that are situated near it. You already know the effect of crystals near the entrance door. And what is concerning calendars, they can negatively influence the lifetime of house inhabitants. You definitely shouldn’t hang calendars of the wrong year. Also, constantly change the date on your calendar if the calendar is designed that specific way.
Finally, here are some items that will help you to regain energy balance at your home!
Acquire Elephants and Tortoises
The tortoise is a very important animal in feng shui philosophy. It is one of four Celestial Animals who are the guardians of good energy. You can use turtles for protection and boosting positive energy. Typically, turtles are situated near the back door of your house for protection. Placing a turtle which is black-colored and made of metal in the North will help your career to thrive. A small statue of this animal can be placed in any other place which needs more stability.
If you bring an elephant, or better, several statues or images of elephants home, good energy will prosper in your dwelling. Elephants symbolize good luck, fertility, protection and wisdom.
Get a Laughing Buddha
This item will bring wealth and happiness to you and your family. It is better to put it in the West part of your home. Also, it brings health and good luck.
Grow a Money Tree
As you already know, stunted trees shouldn’t be placed at home. Money trees are the opposite case. This plant has wide round leaves which are very succulent. A money tree at home will bring more material wealth to your dwelling and of course more oxygen.
Bring Red Lanterns to Your Bedroom
Red lanterns symbolize warmth, protection, love and positive energy. If you bring them to your bedroom, this will positively influence your well-being and relationships between partners. Also, these subjects influence longevity. These were basic instructions on how to deal with different items at home. There are many more feng shui recommendations which you can follow to magnetize happiness. Wish you good luck and joy!
