Serious Feng Shui Made
Simple - 2013
Beginning February 4th - Guide to love,
finance and health energy in your home.
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.
direction (each box) has a numbered star
which represents a specific energy, either
positive or negative.
these stars move into a different box/compass
direction (same as planets moving through houses
and signs in astrology).
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).

Next, apply the
Bagua elements and colors to each direction:

add/accent certain elements - Earth, Metal, Water,
Wood and Fire.

- red, green, blue, brown, silver etc

Your Career, the Life Path in front of you.

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 colour needed for each
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.
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).
THE ACTUAL ELEMENT IS MORE POWERFUL
THAN THE COLOR WHICH IS SECONDARY.
Candles, fireplace or stove.
Pottery or actual earth in flower pot.
Home decor object such as candle holder, wall
art, photo frame, lamp stand.
= Vase of flowers, indoor fountain or
Wood = Live plants, lucky bamboo (a wooden
object such as a chair or table made of wood
is not LIVE wood).
how the elements work together, look at
how they react in nature:
- Earth produces metal, metal turns into
flowing liquid, water nourishes wood (trees,
plants), wood feeds fire, fire becomes earth
- Earth absorbs water, water puts out fire,
fire melts metal, metal cuts wood
(axe), wood drains earth.
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.
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,
Confused? No worries - simply read and apply
The numbered visiting stars
written after each compass direction, are
explained further below for those interested.
OK, after you
have applied the traditional foundation
of the Bagua color accents and elements, take a
look at the elements and colors for this year
2013, and apply accordingly to each direction.
If you are new to all this, DO NOT APPLY THE

BAGUA ELEMENTS AND COLORS, AS EXPLAINED ABOVE.

NO mirrors, water, fountains (will create

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

images of single people if you want a

Nothing should be stored under bed.
You should not have view into bathroom - keep
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.
Feng Shui HOME IN GENERAL:
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
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
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!
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
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.
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. FYI: 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.
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.
15) BE SURE HOME IS
AIRED OUT ON REGULAR BASIS SO THERE IS FRESH
AIR, AND IT SMELLS NICE IN EVERY ROOM AND
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.
