mirror placement in living room

Mirror placement in living room

Mirrors are common decorative items in houses and especially in smaller apartments and flats, to extend the interior so that the house looks spacious internally. However, it can be a taboo to have big mirrors set across the walls if not placed correctly. Below we share two case studies on this design.

Mirrors – Feng Shui Case Study I

One of the houses we visited has a big mirror across the wall in the living room, and this is a very common design that is in trend, as houses are getting smaller and smaller in places where lands are scarce. However, this mirror has caused a toil on the missuses of the house, especially the health.

Mirrors – Feng Shui Case Study II

There was another house where we visited with small pieces of mirrors plastered all over the wall, and within this sector, we can see the health issue on the male residents of the house, as well as the career progression and general movement (tend to laze around and do not enjoy active lifestyle). There is also an indication of fertility issue and stress.

Mirrors – Feng Shui Case Study III

House number 3 was a complete new space, and the house owner intended to place a big mirror across the dining area. Immediately, we asked about his health issue and his current living place layout. True enough, he has been feeling unwell for quite some time despite seeing a few doctors already and his current place arrangement has exactly the things that we have mentioned even when we did not step into his current place before. We then advised him to place a painting in replacement of the mirror, as well as made some adjustments to his current place. He feedback to us his health surprisingly improved immediately after the adjustment in his current place. This case study is a perfect example of “Synchronicity“.

As much as the interior designers enjoy using mirrors to cover the walls nowadays, it is always best to be careful of the placement. This will prevent any unnecessary health issues, as the impact of big mirrors are significant.

Your Wealth Luck

4 Factors That Affect Your Wealth Luck

Your wealth luck is largely influenced by personal habits and living environment, if you can not develop a good habit that attracts the God of Wealth, or your Feng Shui is not arranged to the liking of the God of Wealth, it would be difficult to accumulate wealth.

Not disciplined enough when managing money

Wealth is also a form of energy. The difference of attitude in dealing with wealth will make a significant impact on your wealth luck. For example, many people are willing to pay higher costs, in the pursuit of wealth. With a strong desire for wealth, they are able to attract better wealth luck, and thus, the wealth accumulation.

There is another type, where although eager to gain wealth, they are not disciplined when dealing with wealth, and because of the lack of respect towards money and no effort being put in, they will not get very good wealth luck. Therefore, if you want a good fortune, you must start from the small things. Such as not disregarding the small changes you get from buying things; Spending money with restraint; Develop a reasonable financial plan.

Not easy to get along

Some people pull a long face, some are proud, some people are indifference to others…Such people give the energy field of vicious and withdrawn, and thus unapproachable. Being with such people will cause a lot of problems, and so affect what we do. Therefore, it is always good to be kind and maintain a positive attitude to attract the God of Wealth’s blessing. After all, who does not like “harmony”?

Waste of Water

There is a Chinese saying “The mountain represents human and the water represents wealth”. The water that is related to wealth does not limit to river, reservoir, sea, ocean, lake, but also refers to the water at home, such as: tap water, fish tank water, drinking water, bottled water from supermarket and so on.

Some people take a long time in washing dishes and bathing; Throw away bottled water only after drinking a few mouthful. These wasting habits are losing wealth luck.

Feng Shui that Loses Wealth Luck

If the formation of your house Feng Shui has the main door directly facing the back door without any blockages in between to stop the energy from accumulating within the house, it is difficult to retain the wealth luck energy. At the same time, it will also affect the spending habits of the people living in the house, causing them to spend whatever they earn.

Shoes Feng Shui

Shoes Feng Shui: Stop throwing your shoes around!

Taking off shoes and changing them into slippers for home has become a habit of many friends. One reason is to relax the feet that ran the whole day, and secondly to maintain the hygiene and health of the home.

Although it is a good habit to remove your shoes upon stepping into your home, but what to do with them after removing is a problem. Some friends just throw them in the balcony, living room and even bedrooms for convenience, and this is not desirable.

We all know that there is different energy field at different locations, and shoes as protector shield for our feet have accompanied us to various big and small places of locations, and therefore, the energy field from these places will rub off on our shoes.

In serious cases, they may even form a “killing” energy, and this is bad for health of the occupants in the house and will negatively affect the career and wealth prosperity as well.

Feng Shui Office

13 Feng Shui office taboos to avoid

Do you have the following Feng Shui office taboos at your workplace? They could be the reason that you can not focus on work, hurry to see it!

  1. Ensure that your seat is not facing the main entrance directly

    As the main entrance is the air and energy flow of the entire office, sitting at a place directly facing the door will have a clash with the energy field of the entrance. This can easily affect a person’s subconscious, nervous system, and even cause situations such as illness or gratuitous hot temper. A screen or plants being placed between the door and the seat can resolve this.

  1. Ensure that the back of your seating is a concrete wall or cabinets instead of a door or pathway

    The back of the human brain is most sensitive to energy field and frequency waves. Therefore, it is best to have things that are fixed at the back. Having people walking up and down behind you will cause distractions and after sometime, will affect work efficiency and health due to energy loss.

  1. There should not be a wall right in front of you

    The reason why our eyes are in front of us, is to capture as much information as possible. If you are too near a wall, you would not be able to see your surroundings, and this will cause insecurity and affect stability in the nervous system.

  1. It is best not to have anyone sitting in front of you

    This may cause a psychological clash. Without personal space, it will either cause discomfort or distraction, enjoying chatting with each other and losing focus on work. It is best to place some documents or plants in between for separation.

  1. Do not sit facing the toilet doors directly

    The toilet is a gathering place for bad smell and bacteria. Sitting near the toilets or facing the toilets directly will fall ill due to inhaling too much of the bacteria. If this is unavoidable, place a large screen to partition the toilets and seat.

  1. Do not sit behind the printer or hardware systems

    The magnetic frequency field from the printer or hardware systems are relatively strong. After some time, it will affect the human magnetic and energy field, causing mental and physical disabilities, and indirectly also affect luck. It is best to keep a distance, or place big pots of plants as separation. The plants should be changed regularly, otherwise it will become a second source of contamination.

  1. There should not be any taps of running water nearby

    Water can disrupt the magnetic field or energy field, as it can gather its own energy field. One who sits near this for long term, may have neurological disorders or have their luck in repeated phenomenon. It is best to avoid such places.

  1. There should not be any dustbin or rubbish

    Same as the toilets, rubbish gathers bacteria and bad smell. It is best to avoid.

  1. There should not be lack of light or windows near the seat.

    If there is a lack of light, then it would cause the “Yang” energy to weaken, and “Yin” energy to overwhelm. After some time, it will cause people to become lazy and negative.

  1. There should not be any gas stove, fridge or kitchen near the seat

    Kitchen is the source of “Fire”, and being so close to “Fire” will affect the body’s nervous system and physiological field. In long term, it will hinder a person’s ability to think and thus, it is best to avoid.

  1. You should not face the water dispenser directly

    This is the same as the tap or sink. Especially, when a lot of people will walk up and down to retrieve water, the magnetic field and energy field will be affected much easily.

  1. You should not face your supervisor or boss directly

    In olden times, supervisors and bosses are meant to “Control” the staff. Unless, you do not see them as supervisors or boss, it is best to avoid sitting across from them. As their behaviors and movements will affect you and may cause conflicts in long term.

  1. There should not be any chandeliers or pillars on top of your seat

    The tip of your head is also a sensitive area, as it is constantly afraid of things falling from above. Thus, if there are any chandeliers or pillars on top of you, the subconscious will build a protective shield and you will always be on alert to defend yourself. After sometime, your energy will be drained. It is best to shift your seat, to protect your health if this is the case.
