FAQ for Feng Shui General Questions:

Yes, indeed, it does work, and it is really effective. It is a proven science from China dating back over 3000 years. To illustrate better, traditional Chinese Medicine has the same fundamental background as Feng Shui. If you believe that Acupuncture works, Feng Shui will work, too!

The reason why Feng Shui does not work is quite simple: First, you have not implemented the cure and enhancement tips correctly. Secondly, you have applied with delay the suggested cures and adjustments. Another reason might be that only view changes have been made inside the home. Lastly, not all family members follow all the rules. I experience from time to time that one family member is very much dedicated to Feng Shui, but the children or spouse simply refuse to work hand in hand to make the magic happen.

It depends as we cannot say Yes or No, for sure. In real classical Feng Shui, we can use lucky charms as symbolism depending on their shape and materials; it works very well. However, if you are not into Asian decoration styles, you can use regular household and decor items instead. It is all about your personal taste! What matters the most is the shape and the material in regards to the 5 Element Theory.

You will see your life more in harmony and in balance. It can help you improve your health, relationship, and career (wealth). Also, it will reduce conflict and misfortune.

Like animals, we humans are on earth to survive. The saying “survival of the fittest” might ring a bell. Besides, we all like to archive our individual goals to move forward and advance in life; this can be climbing up the career ladder or starting a beautiful family. Feng Shui will help you regain forward momentum in life by archiving these goals and beating your competitors.

It depends on your permanent house energy chart, and it is not as simple to give a general answer. Each house can have up to FOUR wealth and love areas. The only way to find out is to map your home energy chart to discover these areas. Once found, you can enhance them according to the rules of Classical Feng Shui.

The short answer is no. Crystals belong to the earth element and should only be used in accordance with the principles of the flying star and the five element theory. A small 5-cm crystal ball cannot wield much power. For the best results, it is more important to have a proper furniture arrangement or block unwanted building features. The crystal ball is yet another perfect example of black hat Feng Shui.

When it comes to applying Feng Shui remedies, the size of the room plays a significant role. A larger room requires correspondingly bigger adjustments, while a smaller space necessitates less. It is important for individuals to strike a balance in their approach, avoiding both excessive obsession and neglect.

In the case of a spacious room, do not go overboard with the remedies. While it may be tempting to inundate the area with numerous adjustments and enhancements, it is advisable to exercise restraint. An excessive application of elements can create an overwhelming and chaotic environment, which may hinder the desired flow of energy and disrupt the overall harmony.

Conversely, in a smaller space, it is equally important not to overlook the implementation of the remedies. Although the quantity of adjustments may be relatively lesser, neglecting this aspect entirely would be counterproductive. Even a few well-chosen Feng Shui enhancements can significantly improve the energy flow and overall ambiance of a confined area.

Full Question: My balcony has 2 way access: via kitchen and living room. Can I close off the living room access by putting a sofa there? The balcony faces south but by putting it in front of the living room access the neighbors don’t see me that much.

Responds from us:

I appreciate your inquiry and am more than happy to provide insights on the matter of closing off balcony access from the living room. Although I haven’t had the opportunity to view images of your apartment, I am assuming that the balcony is situated on the facing side of the apartment. Taking your unit’s orientation into account, it’s noteworthy that the universal Qi flows in from this direction, bearing significant importance.

Several vital factors warrant consideration, particularly concerning the Qi’s energy harmonious flow and the principles derived from the form school:

  1. Your frequency of balcony usage plays a pivotal role. Should you use the balcony space often, it might be advisable to retain access through the living room. This is especially holds truth to avoid access fire energy in case of frequent cooking activities mingling with the incoming external Qi.
  2. Should your living room feature a window adjacent to the door, facilitating the inflow of air (Qi) from the window is a good alternative, then the option to block balcony access becomes viable.

While making the decision to seal off the balcony access within the living room, it is imperative that an abundance of natural sunlight (yang) continues to grace your space. The solar illumination rays (UV) is indispensable for ushering in propitious and favorable Qi. A space deprived of adequate natural sunlight (yin), excessively dimmed, has the potential to instigate mood fluctuations and, in more severe cases, precipitate feelings of depression.

An excellent alternative would be to utilize a sheer curtain during the daytime and supplement it with a standard curtain for the nighttime. This combination would effectively provide you with the essential privacy you seek.
