Improve Your Health with Feng Shui

Improve Your Health with Feng Shui

In the ancient Chinese system of Feng Shui, the area for Health is in the center (or heart) of the home, as well as in the center of each room. How we decorate and keep this area can have positive (or negative!) effects on our overall physical, mental, and spiritual health.

Giving this vitally important location needs special attention and can have amazing results. Find out a few simple enhancements for more balanced, vital health from this Feng Shui expert, and learn which gemstones and minerals have Feng Shui associations with good health, here:

Two rooms that are especially beneficial for Health enhancements are the living room and the dining room.

Here is the authors favorite Feng Shui enhancement for better overall health:

Put a quartz crystal cluster in the middle of a centrally-placed coffee table in the living room. Then place minerals known for their healing properties on the cluster (see below). The quartz crystal amplifies the energies of the healing stones.

Other Enhancements for Health

* Get rid of clutter.
* Keep bathroom doors closed, toilet lids down, and shower curtains pulled closed to keep Chi from flowing out of your home.
* Amber is especially beneficial. The author suggests hanging a string of amber beads from the lighting fixture or fan in the center of the ceiling.
*Objects to include in the Health area:
Earthy-colored or yellow throw rugs
Books on health and healing
Earthen or stone objects
Candles or incense burners
Statue of Kwan Yin, Chinese goddess of healing, compassion, and mercy
Images of the earth, especially mountains which represent strength and stability (with no water representation in the image/picture)

Healing Gemstones and Minerals

Nebula Stone
Tigers Eye
Citrine/Smoky Quartz*

*These stones are considered to be stimulating.

What a luxury to be in rooms that encourage 'comfort' 'confidence' and 'curing' - to our lives. The curvature of furniture is something I pay attention to, especially those corners,... --- actually, I've noticed that my whole life, as when I was a little girl it's as if the corners would project blades of sharp energy into the air,... and I would avoid the 'knives.' Feng Shui teaches us that those sharp corners actually DO sever the energy and create a kind of threat to the area. So, I like smooth corners! How many times has someone gotten up in the middle of the night to be 'stabbed' by one of those treacherous corners when they're half asleep,.... I appreciate the 'beautiful' article!!!
