Everything you need to know about finding a Feng Shui Expert

Feng Shui (pronounced Foong Schway) literally means “Wind and Water” and it is a way of creating a harmonious environment within the home.  Feng Shui helps us to understand how energy moves throughout the home and provides ways of maximizing the benefits of good energy and minimizing any harmful effects of poor energy. To this end, Feng Shui is about balance.  Feng Shui is practised by professionals but an interior decorator may understand the basic principles.

Considerations

In Feng Shui, both the elements that we can see and the elements that we can’t see are considered.  The elements that can be seen include the placement of doors and adjacent buildings for example, the furnishings, or the slope of the block.  The unseen elements refer more to how the elements that you can see will affect you, and therefore it is more about the energies.  The unseen elements can attract positive or negative energies and the goal of Feng Shui is to balance these – this is often why it is thought of as the “acupuncture” of buildings as it corrects the building’s energy pathways, allowing more positive energies to flow through.

Feng Shui practitioners will consider the following things and more when looking at your home:

 
 
  • the energy of the site and surrounding environment
  • the balance between the internal and the external of the home
  • the flow and relationship between the rooms in the home
  • the kind of energy that the building attracts e.g. prosperity, luck, negative energies that cause arguments or listlessness etc
  • the relationship between the building and the people that occupy it
  • how the layout of the home and the furnishings interact with each other
  • the best place to put “lucky objects” in order to improve the home’s Feng Shui

Feng Shui Tips

While it is a good idea to use the services of a professional to ensure that your home has optimal Feng Shui, there are some simple tips that you can follow yourself to improve the energies in your home:

  • Remove clutter! Clutter and unwanted belongings leads to a blockage in the flow of energy.
  • Avoid having TVs and other electrical equipment in the bedroom as the electrical fields are disturbing and can potentially damage your health
  • Always keep plants pruned, healthy and free of dead growth
  • Repair flaking paint – this encourages tiredness
  • Ensure that your home has good ventilation and plentiful fresh air
  • Try and locate bedrooms so that they are facing towards the east
  • Keep your home well maintained and fix any leaks in windows, roofs or taps
  • Ensure that your front door is kept clear and out of alignment with trees or telegraph poles etc.  Wide, well-lit, curving paths to the front door are particularly lucky, and the front door should always open in to reveal a wide open space.
 
 
 
 

Hiring a Feng Shui Consultant


Feng Shui professionals are highly trained and have years of experience.  When it comes to choosing a professional, it is not necessarily a case of the cheaper the better.  It is more important to choose someone that you feel comfortable with and that you have confidence in. 

Feng Shui consultations should involve a form of building astrology as well as your personal Feng Shui Astrology, so that the professional is able to see how you will interact with the building.  The professional should also focus on the forms and shapes in the environment, that is, taking into account the outside influences such as intersections, parks, neighbouring buildings and so forth.  Finally, the consultation should provide remedies that will enhance the positive aspects of your home and reduce or eliminate any negative aspects.
