Feng Shui.
The alignment and balance of
energy within your home for
health, love and abundance.

chiSerious Feng Shui Made Simple - 2014
Beginning February 4th - Guide to love, finance and health energy in your home.

Change and align the energy in your home for love, abundance, health and happiness by simply rearranging, adding or removing specific elements and colors. Your home environment is a total reflection of the energy within you. Are you lacking love, can't find a partner, wanting children, not enough money, get sick too often, receive no respect? Read on ...

Generic Western Feng Shui only scratches the surface but there is a deeper, more serious method, original traditional Eastern Feng Shui. We have done all the research for you and made this very simple to apply.

Your home represents all the directions of the compass including the center area.
Imagine a box divided into 9 squares.

Each compass direction (each box) has a numbered star which represents a specific energy, either positive or negative.
Each year these stars move into a different box/compass direction (same as planets moving through houses and signs in astrology).

Each month a second star visits each box, and slightly shifts the energy for good or for bad just for that month (for advanced practitioners only - we don't want to confuse you).


Work thru this page step by step, slowly and carefully.

This page below will detail what elements and colors you need to focus on for each compass direction according to the energy residing there for this year 2014, pertaining to love, health and wealth.

Feng Shui grid (BAGUA) representing your home,
showing traditional elements and colors associated with each direction.


OK, get a compass and determine where your compass directions are for your home:
N, S, E, W and NE, NW, SE and SW. W
hich direction is your main door, and each important room?

Next, apply the Bagua Elements and Colors in each direction, each room:
a) You are going to focus on and add/accent certain elements - Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire.
b) You are going to focus on and add/accent certain colors - red, green, blue, metal etc


North: Dark Blue, Black - Water element - Your Career, the Life Path in front of you.
NE: Beige, tan, cream, yellow, orange earth tones - Earth element - Knowledge, Skills, Communication.
East: Green - Wood element - Your Family, Foundation in Life, the Past.
SE: Green + touch of Purple, Red - Wood element - Abundance, Prosperity, Wealth Corner.
South: Red, Orange - Fire element - Your Reputation, Social Status, Fame.
SW: Reds, Pink, Orange, Purples - earth tones - Earth element - Relationships, Love/Romance - Mother/Lover.
West: White, Pastels, Silver - Metal element - Your Children, Creativity, Projects, Fun/Joy.
NW: White, Grey, Silver - Metal element - Helpful Friends/People, Mentors, Heavenly Help - Father/Man of House/Lover.
Center: Earth tones (refer above) - Earth element - Physical, Mental and Emotional Health.

TIP: Use fabrics such as throws, table runners, scarfs, cushions, rugs, bed sheets - and objects such as candles, plants, vase of flowers, lampshades, crystals, photos and wall art, to accent each element and each color needed for each direction.

Note 1: Each room of your home may be any color you choose and does not have to be the actual color of the Bagua direction - instead, add accents of the elements and colors needed to activate the specific energy in each direction with appropriate element objects and fabrics.

Note 2: After you apply the nine box Bagua to your home layout in general - you can apply the Bagua within each individual room, especially if you live in a studio or rent a room. EXAMPLE: Bedroom is in SW so you first apply earth tone colors, then, you apply the Bagua within the Bedroom according to each direction meaning, such as, in the NE corner of your room, you place your books and awards (knowledge corner).

Fire - Candles, fireplace or stove.
Earth - Pottery or actual earth in flower pot.
Metal - Home decor object such as candle holder, wall art, photo frame, lamp stand.
Water - Vase of flowers, indoor fountain or aquarium.
Wood - Live plants, lucky bamboo (a wooden object such as a chair or table made of wood is not LIVE wood).


To understand how the elements work together, look at how they react in nature:

Productive - Earth produces metal, metal turns into flowing liquid, water nourishes wood (trees, plants), wood feeds fire, fire becomes earth (ash).
Destructive - Earth absorbs water, water puts out fire, fire melts metal,
metal cuts wood (axe), wood drains earth.

Elements in home must be balanced for energy to be aligned. Make sure you don't have an over-abundance of any one element and be sure the elements are in the correct location, eg: South is traditionally fire/red, North is traditionally water/blue and black. However ...

Annually: Every year, due to visiting stars which each represent a specific element and meaning, the existing element/colors may need to be changed slightly by removing, adding or toning them down. There is no need to go spend money - work with what you have, get creative.

Confused? No worries, keep going ...

After you have applied the traditional foundation of the Bagua color accents and elements, ind out the elements and colors for this year 2014, and apply accordingly to each direction ...

chiHere is a simple, clean visual chart for the year: Annual/Monthly Feng Shui Guidance Chart 2014
Or below, everything is written out and explained for you ...

Year of Yang Wood Horse 2014:



Finances will improve, but may slow down after July. Strong year for women.
Watch for tendency to overspend on impulse, to be stubborn and uncompromising.
Great year for creativity, communication and PR, socializing, entertainment, independence, spontaneity and travel.
Year of romance, but be alert for affairs and sex scandals if in an unstable relationship.
New romances do not indicate longevity, but good year for weddings.

Children still at risk for harm and abuse - protect and watch over them.

Important to spend quality time with family and friends in 2014.

Conflict energy is strong - fierce wars, violence, riots. Nuclear weapons and energy will be in the limelight.

Health Challenges are focused on heart disease, blood poisoning, inflammation, lung diseases (bad year for smokers), skin problems, head injuries and eye problems. Potential for global virus outbreak.

FYI - Prevent your immune system from becoming compromised:
Focus on alkaline foods, and balanced diet. Take BetaLoe, garlic, cayenne pepper and colloidal silver. We do NOT recommend flu vaccine or Tamiflu which are both poison.

Wood-Horse 2014

The Year of the Wood Horse 2014.

Visiting Flying Stars 2014:
Positive Areas: South-8, West-6, Center-4, North-9, SW-1.
Negative Areas: NW-5, East-2, NE-7, SE-3.

Meaning of the Visiting Stars:
Each year, 9 stars visit the 9 square boxed grid of your home. Each star has a specific meaning and element which affects the elements (for better or worse) of the area it is visiting. 4 stars are good energy and 4 stars are negative energy. The #9 star can go either way. Here are the meaning of the stars:

The #1 Lucky star brings career luck in promotions and recognition - White water.
The #2 Sickness star brings illnesses, diseases, ailments and fatal health problems - Black earth.
The #3 Conflict star brings serious disputes, negative encounters, lawsuits and court case - Green wood.
The #4 Romance star brings love luck and education success - Green wood.
The #5 Evil star brings bad luck of all kinds, financial loss, accidents, misfortunes, conflicts, separation and death - Yellow earth.
The #6 Heavenly star brings luck from heaven with plenty of career success and helpful people - White metal.
The #7 Violent star brings severe bad luck - violence, robbery, deceit and bloodshed by metal - Red metal.
The #8 Luckiest star brings wealth, prosperity, and lots of money luck - White earth.
The #9 Expansion star doubles the good luck or bad luck of the stars it is visiting with - Purple fire.



BEDROOM - for Love and Healing:
- NO mirrors, water, fountains (will create infidelity).
- Avoid plants (wood and earth elements, unless sector is same element) and flowers in vase (water element).

- Remove photos of family and children from bedroom and place in another room - place photos of lover and yourself only.
- Never use peach as choice of main color for bedroom - will create infidelity.

- Wall art should be happy, romantic or sexy - NO images of single people if you want a relationship!

- Make sure space on either side of bed is evenly spaced, with 2 side drawers, 2 lamps etc.
- Do not have bed in corner but centered, with sturdy headboard against wall.
- Bed should NEVER directly face door - symbolic of a coffin!
- Nothing should be stored under bed.

- You should not have view into bathroom - keep door closed.
- No EMF's - no computer in bedroom, nothing electric near head such as alarm clock or cell phone, no work-out equipment. If you have a TV in bedroom, cover or unplug when you go to sleep.

1) Keep closets clean and organized - give away or throw out anything and everything that you don't LOVE or NEED or USE.

a) If you store things in closets/cupboards, why do you have them there, unless they are for a specific season or holiday, or event?
b) If you have objects/clothes that have bad/sad memories - get rid of them!
c) If you have stuff/clothes you have not used or worn for 1-2 years - get rid of them. Give to Goodwill, have a garage sale, give to friends - whatever you don't use or wear, someone else can!

2) Anything broken, leaking or cracked - fix it or throw it away now.
3) Keep toilet seat down and door closed.
4) Flowers need to be fresh (not silk or dried) - throw out when dead - make sure water is clear and clean and never stagnant or dirty!
5) Use natural fabrics and elements such as cotton and silk - stay away from plastic and polyester.
6) Never place your bed or desk chair sitting with back to door - place bed or desk where you can see the entrance/the entire room.

7) Check you have balance of all 5 elements in each room of home - an excess of any element in home or any specific room will misalign and disrupt energy, causing health, wealth or relationship challenges.

8) Be sure to have a great color palette throughout your home to energize love, health and wealth - if you have any monotone theme going on, use accent colors or expect a monotone life!

Note: I once met a very eligible bachelor with money, career and good looks who could NOT find a girlfriend - His entire home was brown and beige and... his bedroom only had one nightstand and one lamp... no surprise he is single!

9) Artwork can be critical - place paintings that you love, art that inspires whatever you desire and makes you happy :) - No images of single people if single. No sad images.
Artwork reflects the status and energy of who you are, or who you want to become, where you have been, where you want to go, and your life to date.

10) Be sure to keep the bathroom and kitchen clean (stove, sinks, bathtub, mirrors, floor) - vacuum and dust the entire home every week, otherwise expect negative energy consequences.

11) If a corner or area is missing due to apt/house design, simply remedy and activate by placing bright light/tall lamp, hanging crystal, mirror, plant or rock. This may be applied outside the home walls as well as within.

12) If bathroom is in SW (female) or NW (male), finding a mate or sustaining a relationship will be challenging. To remedy, place plant in SW and heavy statue or boulder in NW.

NO fire/candles/kitchen in NW ever - will destroy head of household income.

13) Take care of your outside surrounding environment, not just the inside. Energy flows into your home thru doors and windows. Keep windows clean and shiny. Make sure main door entrance is open with no clutter on either side.
Sweep away spiderwebs. Clean up animal feces daily. Cut back any trees or plants that touch the home walls. Remove dead leaves, flowers and plants. Check there are no stagnant pools of water. Remove any old furniture or stuff stored around property if never used. If anything is broken or falling apart, fix it up or toss it out.

14) Weapons Energy: Anything in the home, or surrounding the home that is pointed or sharp, should be removed asap. No cactus plants in home. Metal weapons such as swords and guns, must be out of reach from children, and placed in a safe, appropriate sector so as not to provoke violent energy or energy that will provoke physical injury or accidents.


16) If your home has experienced a nasty conflict, physically or verbally, OR if someone has been seriously or frequently ill, OR if anyone is bad tempered often, walk around home - each and every closet included - with burning sage to cleanse the environment and neutralize the bad energy.

Feng Shui works whether you believe it or not, so why not give it a try - much of it is plain common sense!

chiFeng Shui Health 2014

Here is special bonus information for those needing help in the health department.

1) Your physical health challenges may be caused by incorrect Feng Shui in your home.
2) Check to see why you are feeling specific strong emotions or mood swings - they may be due to element imbalance, or incorrect placement.


Identify your physical problem below amongst compass directions, then ...
a) Check and correct (remove or add) the elements/colors in the compass direction relevant to your health for 2014.
b) Make sure the health area in question is clean and tidy, with everything located there working properly - nothing broken, leaking, cracked.

Example: You may need to add an element if it is missing, or remove other elements that clash with it, or fix something broken/cracked/leaking/clogged or in need of repair. Leaking water signals poor health, as well as loss of money.

TIP: Taps/pipes should not leak, doors may not squeak, windows cannot be cracked or dirty etc. Rooms - floors, walls and cupboards - should be clean (no cobwebs, dust, animal hair etc) and uncluttered.

Poor Health Examples:
1) If man of house develops headaches or lung problem, is there a beam or sharp object in the NW area, or red colors/fire, or too much metal?

2) Ear infection - Is there a leak, or a broken or clogged pipe in the SW 2014 - or is the annual visiting star conflicted? Also, ask yourself what don't you want to hear.
