The use of mirrors (including ba gua mirrors) in Feng Shui

“Life is like a mirror. If we frown at it, it frowns back. If we smile, it returns the greeting”

Feng Shui MirrorMirrors are important in Feng Shui and can be used as remedies and cures. They help Ch’i energy to move more harmoniously through your home or office. They can make a small room look larger, a dull room look brighter, increase your wealth and your luck, and deflect bad energy; altogether an amazing tool that has so many practical uses. I did an article on mirrors in the bedroom which you search for in the notes section.

  • The front door of your home or business is crucial to the flow of Ch’i in and out of your property. Try this simple test. Stand at your front door and look out, checking to see what poison arrows (Sha Ch’i) are directed at your home/office. Sha Ch’i are lampposts, corners of neighbouring buildings, a road pointing towards your front door, end of a cul-de-sac, anything you feel is pointing at your home in a threatening way. The cure for this particular problem is a Ba Gua (Pa Kua) mirror. I have listed the different types below.
  • Flat Ba Gua mirrors are eight sided with a mirror on the inside and trigrams on the outside. These are the most popular and can be purchased at most good Feng Shui shops. They are used as a general cure for any of the above problems. You must never use a plastic Ba Gua mirror; they are very bad and can cause many problems.
  • Convex Ba Gua mirrors will reflect and expand Ch’i energy; they are mainly used to remove overbearing images such as a large neighbouring building, which could be an office block, prison or tower block. Do not use a Ba Gua mirror inside. You can use a normal convex mirror inside your home. For example, if you have a staircase directly in front of your front door your Ch’i energy is coming into your home/office and going straight up the stairs, which is not good for the whole home/office. Never have a flat mirror directly opposite your front door as any Ch’i entering is sent straight back out
  • Ba Gua MirrorConcave Ba Gua mirrors should be used to draw in good Ch’i. For instance if you have a good setting for Feng Shui, such as a river, hills etc, place the mirror on the outside to draw in this good Ch’i.
  • Good Feng Shui is never to be in a position where you cannot see what is behind you. A typical case would be sitting at your desk with your back to the door. The ideal solution would be to move the desk so you are facing the door, however this is not always possible, therefore the best cure is to place a normal mirror in front of you so that you can see the door behind you. Do not use a Ba Gua mirror though.
  • Crystal SphereAn excellent cure we have used for many businesses is placing a mirror beside your shop till with a crystal faceted sphere hanging above. We have always had positive feed back on this cure; in fact we use it ourselves. It is said to double your wealth luck.
  • Never place two mirrors opposite each other as they just bounce the Ch’i energy from one to another.
  • Mirrors and bedrooms, hmmmm tough one this. I am sure 99% of our readers, male or female and myself included, would not like to do without a mirror in the bedroom. If you have a mirror you should try and have a full-length mirror where you can see all your body when looking into it, or a mirror that you can see your entire head. At night they should be covered as well as any reflective items such as TV, computers, glass picture frames etc. You only need cover the ones that look onto your bed. When you sleep you expel unwanted thoughts and emotions through Ch’i leaving your body, a reflective material such as a mirror, TV etc sends them straight back to you.
  • Long corridors or narrow hallways. Stagger mirrors on either side (never have them facing each other) to slow the Ch’i energy as well as creating a wider and brighter area. At the end of the hallway try and place the mirror where it can catch some natural light to flow through the area.
  • Always keep your mirrors and windows clean and replace broken or cracked mirrors immediately.

“ You can lose up to 30% of daylight from having dirty windows or mirrors”

Feng Shui and the effects of clutter

Clear your clutter and clear your problems

Feng Shui and Clutter have a very close relationship with each other than most people would not expect although it is very much a fact that having clutter in your life can severely affect the energy of yourself and your home or business. There are many ways that Feng Shui elements can be introduced into modern life and for every person; their home or office is the ideal place to start.

In weighing up whether Feng Shui is right for you and if it’s affecting you, it can be helpful to think about clutter and its negative effects on you and your home. You may not realise that a cluttered home can have an impact on your home life, personality and even wealth. This is why introducing Feng Shui and limiting clutter can help create a more peaceful and abundant home.

Clutter leaves you feeling tired

A home that is cluttered will be draining, both visually and physically. If you look around at a busy room at your home or in any building, it is only natural that you will feel tired and can even lack motiviation, which of course, reduces the likelihood of taking action to remove the clutter from your home. Allowing this cycle to continue will see your home become even more cluttered and you will feel increasingly tired. This is why it is important to break out of this cycle. If you went to a car showroom to buy a car and the cars were all dirty and the showroom was filled with mess, chances are you will not feel as though you would like to do business there or feel very welcome and the same can be said for a home.

A cluttered home can lower your hope

Having so much stuff around your home can make you feel that there is too much going on in your life. If life is starting to feel a little overwhelming, stop and have a look around. Do you see clutter everywhere you look at home? If you do, this may be contributing to your emotions. This is where taking the time to de-clutter your home will fill you with a sense of optimism. This action car racing games download is one of the overriding emotions people when they carry out a spring clean but you can benefit from this at any time of year. With Feng Shui, you need fresh Qi to flow around your home as much as possible and when the home is filled with clutter and mess, this can restrict the Qi and cause problems around the home so make sure that you clear as much clutter as possible to help the flow of Qi.

Are you using your money wisely?

If you have a lot of clutter around your home, it may mean that you are spending your money on collectible items. At times this can be a wise investment and at times it can give you a lot of enjoyment and pleasure. However, if you fall into the trap of collecting for the sake of collecting, you may find that too much of your money is being spent on these items, leaving you short of funds at other times or for other activities. It is a good idea to take a look at the Annual Flying Stars to see how the stars for 2014 can affect your finances; you can view this by clicking here and also take a look at the May 2014 Monthly Updates for even more information

A cluttered home can lead to a cluttered life and many people in this situation will find that their life is out of control. Removing the clutter of a home and channelling energy in the right manner will help to provide focus and clarity in a person’s life. If you pare back in life and remove the clutter, you may find yourself in better positions to see the things that are going on around you and where you need to be in life.

Having a high level of quality and natural light and air will both contribute to allowing fresh Qi to flow around the home and lift spirits in general. These are essential for creating good Qi at your home, helping you to feel relaxed and at one. When it comes to minimising clutter and creating a positive atmosphere, natural light and air are of considerable benefit.

I will be spending this bank holiday weekend getting a load of boxes together and filling them with all my old rubbish that I have hoarded over the years and having a complete clear out of my home.

I hope you all enjoyed reading and hopefully this article has helped to motivate you as it did myself!

Doors and Feng Shui

Feng Shui is not always about placing Buddha”s, Dragons and Toads, its also about concentrating on the essentials that are normally overlooked. Your main entrance door for your home and office is actually one of the most important areas of a property, it is where the main amount of qi comes in to the building and the quality of the qi is dependent on the condition of the area where the door is located which means your hall and driveway.

Michael teaches Feng Shui to hundreds and we post articles daily on our websites and Facebook, Twitter etc to people all over the world and sometimes we do not always practice what we preach but believe me, when it comes to doorways, halls, driveways etc our home and business is always kept impeccable, we replace doormats as soon as they start to fray, Doors, frame, paintwork and the area around our main door outside is cleaned weekly, brass door furniture is often polished when needed, hinges will be oiled when needed, The windows will be cleaned every two weeks.

Feng Shui tips for your business and office

1). Always sit with a solid wall behind your back to ensure that you have support in your life, never sit with a window behind you.

2) In the office always place the fax machine, telephone, and computers in the wealth area and future wealth area for more Businesses.

3) The arrangement of tables and chairs should be in a harmonious position so that chi is able to flow smoothly.

4) If you wish to be the leader in your industry, place a Dragon on the right hand side of your desk facing towards the window or the door. The Dragon can also look into your water fountain. A Dragon always chases after a pearl, thus the window; water fountain can signify the pearl

5) If you own a shop try and place the till in your wealth corner, even your petty cash tin. Order books can also be placed here with Chinese coins held together with red ribbon.

6) You should not have any cactus or sharp looking plants in your office as these plants have small sharp leaves and therefore causes “shar chi” in the office. The chi that rides on the wind will have to pass through them causing chi to be fierce and sharp.

7) If your staff always fall sick in that area, then use a metal wind chime made of 6 or 7 metal rods about 1ft long are the best as the sound of metal is the best Feng Shui cure. Others like a metal sculpture or metal object would not be that effective although they are also metal in nature. Place a hanging crystal sphere to activate ch’i or disperse negative ch’i.

8) In your office, never have the main door opening into your table as the chi coming in will hit at your face causing you not to have good luck but instead more obstacles and problems. reorganize your office.

9) In a managers office you should try not to chose a room with two doors, because the ch’I will go into that room and out the other door.

10) The chi from the main entrance of your office should not meet a wall inside the office. This is because the chi once it hits the wall has to turn and therefore causing it to slow down hence your businesses will be slow and not vibrant. Try using a hanging crystal in your office entrance this will enhance ch’i.

11) Do not place the photocopy machine near to the main door. Heat near the main door is frequently not preferred and causes the chi to be hot and dispersed easily as more people are likely to walk in and out thus carrying chi in and out too fast because the chi is not allowed to stay for some time.

12) Do not place a paper cutter machine next to the main door. Cutter machine is to cut papers. Therefore if located here will cause staff to back stab each other and fight too if one is not careful.

13) Do not place an empty vase next to the main door, as the new chi once it enters your office will be sucked into the vase causing nothing much left for the environment.

14) For corporate clients a fish tank placed in the wealth area is the best for great results and success. However there are strict criteria’s for the fish tank that one has to follow.

15) The company signboard should be in the wealth area so that no other competitors can be strong enough to beat you at your game.

16) Place an indoor fountain in your wealth corner, to activate ch’i. These also have medical benefits.

17) Do not have clutter in your office; desks must be kept tidy and clutter free. This is so important, an office in China would not have these paper trays on desks, and most American companies now employ the same approach.

18) Place a hanging crystal in your window, this will activate ch’I, as well as looking fantastic, when the hits them they produce the most amazing rainbows

19) Three legged Toad God. This figure is used for attracting wealth and abundance. Place this wonderful creature near your front office entrance, facing into your office for luck and wealth, or place it in the wealth sector of your office to magnify your wealth luck. Always leave the coin in its mouth.

20) Crystal ball, apart from looking into future you can place on top of phone to encourage more business calls. Also to attract wealth. Also to attract wealth and good luck, a great all round cure that every office should have one.

21) Fu Dogs Male & Female, these protective animals are placed near your doorway of your office to protect from evil influences. They are a symbol of valor and prosperity.

22) Ba Gua Mirrors,If you have any negative energy directed at your front office door, these Ba Gua mirrors will disperse the negative energy.

Almanac for May 2003

May 2003 Almanac

Use the Almanac below daily to help you in selecting the most auspicious days and times for activities and events such as weddings, renovations, travelling, opening a business and even a good day for mending your tools.

A Chinese almanac (Chinese calendar) or “Tung Sing” is based on the lunar cycle, providing a guideline that either promotes or advises against certain tasks being undertaken on certain days depending on the combination of the Heavenly Stem and the Earthly Branch. Virtually every home in Asia will have one of these and refer to it daily, it tells you when to do and not to do certain jobs or events. Sallie will be translating the almanac each month so check back monthly for updates.

 

The ten Heavenly Stems are the five elements of water, wood, fire, earth and metal. The Twelve Earthly Branches are the twelve animals of Chinese astrology: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. The stem and branches express each other in a 60-year cycle in terms of the five elements in their yin and yang states.

In former times, once the many characteristics of a building site had been considered, auspicious dates had to be chosen carefully for the actual building tasks in order to ensure harmony.

The almanac is published annually and mainly consists of:

  • An update on the annual energies of the Nine Palaces of a property and the three annual afflictions according to the Xuan Kong system of Feng Shui.
  • A “Huang Li” or imperial calendar with recommended days to proceed with or avoid certain tasks or projects during the year. There is a section dedicated to recommended days for “spring cleaning” before Chinese New Year.

Favourable or unfavourable days according to an individual Year”s Pillar of the Four Pillars “Ba Zi”.

An example would be if you were planning to open a new business this month May 2003 you would choose either 3-12-18 or 23rd of May. Or if you were travelling, you would pick either 9-17-21 or 27th of May. The Almanac is taken very seriously and used daily by all the staff of the Feng Shui Store.

Let”s take it one step further. It can work to a person”s advantage if the hour is also in harmony with the person”s year earthly branch. I must stress that this is only a general way of making the best of the situation with the limited information that is provided here. A more complete and precise analysis of a person”s best timing requires a much more in-depth interpretation of the individual”s “Bà Zi” (Four Pillars).

So let”s say, if you are born in the year of a Dog, and you want to start a new business, you would now be able to calculate that 3-12-18 or 23rd of May were good days to start a new business, you may want the door opening ceremony conducted or sign contract on the hours that are compatible to you and they are the hours of Rabbit (5am – 7am), Horse (11am – 1pm) and Tiger (3am – 5am). Now, even if it is not a good day, at least try to use the good hours for important things. Below is a table that offers the corresponding compatibility of the twelve earthly branches

Feng Shui & numbers

Feng Shui and Numerology

Written by Michael Hanna

The Chinese are very superstitious when it comes to figures, they choose telephone numbers, house number, business numbers, car number plates and anything that has numbers in very carefully.

Every month we get to visit several homes and businesses on consultations and it amazes us as how far our clients take Feng Shui almost to paranoia, which is not good. If you have bad numbers do not worry about it, as I will show you how to eliminate the inauspicious effects.

A little story to begin with, last Friday night I was parked outside the cinema waiting to pick up my two boys and as much as I hate to admit it I was listening to BBC radio 4. I know you always think of the Archers or such like and this is what my Grandma used to listen too, they have some great debates on some nights.

“Nothing we learn in this world is ever wasted.”

Anyway this program was about superstition, and one of the interviewers was saying how she was not superstitious but had spent the last 30 years saluting magpies or never walking under ladders or the cracks of pavements. Well numbers and Feng Shui, are more superstitious Chinese folklore than anything else, do I take it seriously? Yes and no, if I found the perfect Feng Shui house with a good facing direction and it was good for my family but the house number was number 4, I would still buy it although I have to admit I would use the counter measures listed below.

The main reason these numbers are considered unlucky is because the way the numbers sounds when spoken especially to the Cantonese. An example in western numbers would be the #11 could sound like heaven or #8 sounds like weight or #1 sounds like son, do you see what I mean? So if you have an unlucky #4 and you are from a country other than China. Think of #4 as sounding like “more” which is great.

Numbers considered unlucky:

#4 (Sei) the worst number, why? Because in Cantonese when spoken sounds like the word death. #13 because if you add 1=3 = 4 as above. #24 #104 are also considered unlucky

Numbers considered lucky

8, 18, 28, 38, 48, 54, 68, 80, 84, 88, 99, 168 & 108 are all good numbers, the reason #8 is so lucky is because if you say the word (patt) it sounds like “faat” which means “prosperity & abundance”

There are many other numbers I have read about that are considered unlucky in my opinion this is “cannon fodder” and just written about to fill books, if you think about it you could go on for ages, #4 when spoken in English sounds like door, more, store, bore, jaw, paw and “SAW” which out of all of these sounds the worst

The cure:

If you own a home or business with a 4 or 13 is to draw a circle around the number, seriously it is that simple. The circle is extremely powerful and encloses the inauspicious effects of a negative number. So if you have a house number 4, a cheap way of curing is to go outside and draw a circle around your number or if you have time and money pop down to your local hardware store and find one of those ceramic door numbers that you can customise with a circle around the number, all this time you were worrying about nothing.

How seriously do we take numbers? I would be over the moon if we found the perfect house with great flying stars and it was #8 or 88, but I would not be put off buying it if it were #4 or 13, I would use the cure as above though or change it to a house name like “rose cottage” etc.

Fu Dogs placement

Fu Dogs position for your home or office.

Written by Michael Hanna

Also know as guardian Lions, lion dogs, or temple lions. We consult on hundreds of homes and business each year and in my opinion 70% will have Fu Dogs either placed by the door or windowsills, I would also say that 50% are placed in the wrong order.

You will find many variations on web sites, some will have a globe under one paw others will have a Cub under another paw, the most significant thing to remember is the order placement and not which foot the globe or cub is under.

The male lion, holding a globe under his left or right paw should be placed on the left side (as you are looking out of a door or window).

The female lion, holding a cub under her right or left paw is placed on the right side.

Fu Dogs are an extremely powerful protection for your home or business, you will find nearly every home or business in Asia complemented by a pair either inside or outside. Out of all the cures and enhancers in Feng Shui Fu Dogs in our opinion are the most essential. For more details please follow this link cures.html
