Feng Shui Tips for the Chinese New Year

The Chinese New Year is based on the lunar (solar) calendar as opposed to the Western (Gregorian) calendar and starts with the new Moon on the 1st day of the New Year. This means that the date for Chinese New Year varies from the end of January to mid February – this year it’s February 19th. Only 15 days to get ready! New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day tends to be a family affair with the emphasis on getting rid of the old to make way for the new (much like New Year the world over).

Feng Shui Clutter

This article will go over Feng Shu Clutter – what is it and how does clutter clearing or clutter organization make you feel?  Also why you should initiate clutter clearing and clutter organization in your home!

Feng Shui House Number Cures

I recently got the following question in my email

I hope you can help me with a really desperate problem.

My husband and I moved into our home two years ago. Since then absolutely everything has gone down the toilet including my triple A credit rating. I was on a feng shui web site and found out that my house numbers were really bad.

Is there a way to deal with this other than selling the house. I’d really appreciate any help you can give me in this area.

The house address is 2512 Della St., the house was built in 1993/1994. I was told the house numbers created disputes, quarrels, lawsuits and struggle.

This describes exactly what has gone on for two years in our house. I’m absolutely at my wits end.

I thank you for your help with this problem.

It is true that numerology plays a significant part in defining the energy of your home. Feng Shui house numbers are symbols that carry their own vibration or spiritual capacity.

Five Essential Feng Shui Crystal Tips

Discover five essential Feng Shui crystal tips for hanging Feng Shui crystals in windows to deflect bad chi and encourage positive shi as well as use of hanging crystals in windows to restore balance and health in the home.

Feng Shui crystals are possibly the one cure or enhancement that people, who are new to Feng Shui, are keen to get hold of and use in the home. And it’s not hard to understand why.

Feng Shui Crystals and gemstones have been revered over the centuries primarily for their beauty but secondly for their healing qualities and spiritual properties.

Shamans and priests have traditionally made use of crystals for healing purposes and crystal healing still attracts a huge following as a way of connecting to certain properties that restore the natural balance of your body.

Similarly, the use of Feng Shui hanging crystals within the home can either energize or expand the energy or correct an energy imbalance, providing an aura of calm and quiet contemplation.

So, I’d like to focus on five basic ways that Feng Shui hanging crystals (namely faceted Feng Shui crystal balls) in the home can be used for positive effect.

Helpful friends, travel and guides sector of the ba gua

The helpful friends, travel and guides area of the ba gua relates to your support system in life.  Do you have helpful friends to turn to in a crisis?  Is there someone there to guide you in times of strife?  It also relates to how much you give of yourself.

According to the laws of karma (Hindu karma that is), if you are willing to give of yourself emotionally and spiritually you’ll also find support when you need it most.

This area also relates to your spiritual guides and whether you derive help through intuition or a higher source.  Another facet of this area of the ba gua is its connection to travel and overseas opportunities.

So, how can we activate this area which can be often overlooked in favor of more pressing issues, i.e. wealth, health and relationships?
