Basic Feng Shui Tips For Home -
Things to Avoid
You may think you do not need good luck to boost your career or make
you rich because you believe in your ability in getting them.
However, you may not want bad luck come to you and bring you
unfortunate events such as illness, litigation or divorce.
In order to keep the bad luck away,
1. Not use any light fixture that
consists of 2, 3, or 5 light bulbs.
In Flying Stars theory, the stars
#2, #3 and #5 represent bad luck. The #3 is bad, #2 is worse and
the worst one is #5. In order not to attract these 3 stars to your
home, you should not put anything that represents 2, 3 or 5. Light
fixtures are hung to the ceiling and it is the easiest way to
attract stars from above. Therefore, you should not use any light
fixture that consists of 5 light bulbs, 2 bulbs or 3 bulbs. Since
both stars, #2 and #5, are Earth in nature and light fixtures are
Fire, having a light with 2 or 5 light bulbs will very likely
attract these two stars.
If you use pot lights or spotlights,
the number of light bulbs will depend on how many pot lights and
spotlights you can control by that switch. Moreover, since both
stars #2 and #5 represent Earth in the 5 Elements; you should not
place too many Earth items, such as fine china, ceramics and
potteries, at home.
2. Not place a sink or a fridge
opposite or next to a stove.
Sink and fridge represent Water and
stove represents Fire. Placing them together will create a health
problem for you and there will be many quarrels among family
members. By the same token, a centre island with a sink is not good
at all since it will be facing your stove no matter where you put
the stove. Similarly, a centre stove is not good in Feng Shui as it
will face a sink in one of the four directions.
3. Have a clean and neat bathroom.
Dripping faucet represents money
going away from your home. You should always fix a dripping faucet
as soon as possible. The bathroom should always be kept clean and
dry. You should install an exhaust fan in it to take out excess
moisture and bad odours. Both bathroom and moisture are Yin,
excessive moisture will add too much Yin to the home.
Bad odour coming from the sinks is a
kind of Sha and should be eliminated. The bad odour from sinks is
generated by the bacteria inside the U-trap of the pipe. The best
method to eliminate that bad odour is to pour a pot of boiling water
into the drain to kill those bacteria.
