Feng Shui Tips
Feng Shui Tips #1 :The Kitchen (What’s Cooking?)
There has been much debate as to whether the presence of televisions in bedrooms contravenes feng shui principles. Some consultants refuse to comment on the issue except to say that such modern equipment is not mentioned in classical texts. This is unhelpful because feng shui is the art of living in harmony with your environment and therefore it has to incorporate aspects of modern life.
Having electrical equipment inside a yin environment will cause the occupant to feel restless and irritable because of the amount of yang energy that is generated. Occupants may suffer from insomnia or feel fatigued, even after many hours of sleep. This is especially true if you sleep with a computer and monitor left on in the bedroom.
However, some people find watching TV lulls them to sleep. If you are one of them, ensure that the TV is on a timer that turns it off after a certain period has elapsed.
The screen should not be too big or too close to the viewer and should be covered if you can clearly see your reflection in it when lying in bed and the set is off. Undoubtedly the best approach is to remove all electrical equipment from your bedroom. You will be surprised by how soundly you sleep after that.
Feng Shui Tips #2 : Televisions in Bedrooms (Electric Blues)
The significance of feng shui in the kitchen should never be underestimated. After all, this is where we prepare food, which affects our health and well-being.The most important structure in the kitchen is the stove, considered by some feng shui masters to be an area where wealth is also generated.
Hence, it should not be easily visible from one’s front door; otherwise wealth might be drained away. Those with ‘exposed’ stoves can rectify the situation by placing a barrier such as a screen between the stove and the front door. The kitchen door should also be kept closed.
Another major feng shui problem is caused by stoves (a fire element) being placed directly opposite sinks (a water element). The clash will result in disagreements between a husband and wife. Placing a wooden or green mat between the two fixtures will rectify the situation, but ideally conflict should be avoided. Structures representing water (refrigerators) and fire (ovens, microwave) should also not be located adjacent to each other, or one’s health may be adversely affected.
Finally, the toilet and kitchen must be kept as separate as possible. The toilet door should not open opposite the stove, which also shouldn’t share the same wall as a toilet. When these situations arise, the stove should be relocated.
