I cross-posted a version of this to popularfengshui.  I just want to know if there are guidelines for the placement of  clocks in the home.  Thank you!

I’ve been kicking around this topic in my head for a couple of months now and I think it’s time to talk about it.

Losing weight with Feng Shui.

I know it’s sitting out there with some puzzled looks, but a lot of people are starting to ask me about it. ‘I’m happy with my life, but I really wish I could lose some weight. How do you do that with Feng Shui?’

Personally, I think the Health Gua is the most important Gua to activate, but when I started placing intentions myself (since I always practice what I preach!) I felt like something was missing. From my own experience, motivation and drive has always been hard for me to keep going when it came to losing weight. I also felt like I didn’t know what I should do first or how to do it. Okay…so knowing that, motivation and drive lines up with one’s life purpose which is the Career Gua. Knowing what to do is easy…that’s the Knowledge Gua. I also believed that one must love one’s self to obtain a healthy body so I threw the Love and Marriage Gua in there.

After adding three more guas to the mix, I started noticing a pattern. Oh dear! Could it be that all the guas need to be activated to lose weight??? I’m afraid so. Wealth and Prosperity is not always about money. Most people were at their healthiest when they were young so yes, the Children and Creativity (cross training would go here too and keep things new) gua goes in the mix too. There’s a lot of diet and weight loss programs out there that have support groups to help encourage you along so yes, the Family Gua and the Helpful People and Travel gua fits.

How you perceive yourself and how others perceive you would include the Fame gua and this one made me cringe a little. Our society and our nature as humans prefer healthy people. People who have healthy bodies that are appealing inside and out tend to be approached in a more positive outlook over unhealthy ones. Sadly, it was too logical to dispute.

I thought that this exercise would also help anyone who is having health issues in general; physical and mental. People who are ailing find comfort in their “stuff” and surround themselves in clutter for security.

Just like an explosion which starts from a center of impact and chain reacts to expand outward, that’s really how I would approach a Health issue. I’d start from the center and steadily work myself out going around all the guas equally until I finish the entire house. This includes the yard too if you have one. Healthy house=Healthy body and mind.

Hi all,  

I was wondering if anyone had helpful suggestions about this dilemma.  I got a peace lily plant from my boyfriend.  when I got it, it had a few white flowers on it, which I just cut off.  

In the last month however, it has started flowering a LOT.  I am unwilling to deface this plant any further, since it has shown a lot of tenacity and I attach a great deal of sentimental value to it. 

Can someone please explain what I am supposed to do with this plant?  I can't really come around to the fact that having a defaced plant in my office would really improve the feng shui, and frankly if it werent for my chinese upbringing i would really love the white flowers.  could there be ANY LOOPHOLE in the white flower rule that allows me to keep this plant without defacing it further????

help =(

...also this new office is a rectangle, also quite simple, about 6-8 feet by 21 feet. Also there is a sort of desk-counter at the end by prosperity and all that, wooden cover over also a radiator. What are also good ideas to put in the various places, mostly only also wall space and not shelves...? Also thanks! (also I say also a lot lately)

any reason NOT to put shelves here...? [May. 24th, 2007|03:56 pm]

...in my bedroom, the bed faces the south (a bit southwestish) wall, and across the street is a small house with sort of yucky people, and nice trees and all. Is there any reason I should not put some shelves with clean folded clothes on this wall, to sort of muffle sound from traffic and also to absorb vibes or something...? I would not block windows or make it openly hostile in intenion, but I have a ton of clothes stored in a big narrow closet that runs pretty much the whole length behind a little wall *behind* the bed, and it seems like maybe the absorbent-of-noise properties might be better used elsewhere...ideas on this? Thanks!

"Poison Arrow" Shar? [Apr. 30th, 2007|09:12 pm]

Hello - I am totally new to Feng Shui and this community. I picked up Feng Shui for Your Apartment by Richard Webster. I am not clear on how the corner of a neighboring building forms a shar. Webster says this is "a sharp angle caused by the corner of a neighboring building that is oriented at a forty-five degree angle to your apartment." So based on this very rough sketch of my townhouse complex, are the townhouses suffering from a shar from the neighboring office building? You can't tell from the sketch, but it is a rather large imposing building.



If that is a shar, how should I put up a pa-kua mirror to reflect it? Should it directly face the pointing corner? Is it okay to hang it on the front door?

Also, the townhouses are terraced down a hill, like steps. See very rough sketch #2. Is this good or bad?



Thanks very much!

garbage and cat litter...? [Apr. 28th, 2007|12:42 pm]

...I bought a little report at tarot.com about my directions and all, and it gave four categories, and each one said "don't put your garbage here or your money/relationships/success/health will go to hell"...SO WHERE DO YOU PUT IT, THEN? I mean just normal weekly kitchen garbage, and cat litter which I keep in the bathroom, pretty much, not stockpiled waste pathologically clung to...that's the clutter! ahahaha!

where to put sex books...? [Apr. 21st, 2007|04:39 pm]

...by that, I mean the instructional ones about "have hot sex with your spouse every night" or "sex magic and love in your relationship" and "one million goofy but fun postures" and taoist sex or whatever, NOT fiction or erotica or porn...I have had those books in the romance corner for years, here and in the previous house, and often the relationships have had tons of good sex, but not enough else...and I'm not into that stuff at the expense of love etc. ...so, where would you put them, or what would you do?

Quick Important Question [Feb. 28th, 2007|10:07 pm]
classical or traditional fengshui

truth_scriber
Okay I am moving into a new place. My bedroom is the problem and I am not sure where to place my bed. I figured out my Pa gua number and the Lo Su Square and this year is 2 Fire Pig, my star is 3 Chen Eldest Son Wood so my year's direction is in the NW falls which falls in 6 the Metal House and unfortunately the directions I have to put the head of my bed are all in bad places for me. Its a choice between my bed facing South West, North West or a corner in West. There is no room for East or South or South, because of the room size there is not a lot of room between the windows closet and ajoining wall. Out of those 3 bad directions which ones could I find some way to correct with other measures.

I would be sincerely appreciative for any answers very soon, I have this decision tomorrow because I need to figure out where to put the shelves and other items that will be installed tomorrow.

Thank you!!!
