Even the best interior Feng Shui negative energy protection cannot help when outside man-made structures shoot bad chi energy towards your house. Over 70% of the house energy comes from environmental Qi. To understand better, external Qi floats in open areas and cannot attach itself to anything. The energy needs some psychical structure to couple itself to it. Once it finds a place to interact and is allowed inside the house, it will take effect. This can be on a negative or positive note.



Quality of Your Home

You can have the best house in the world, but the quality will be void to 0% if too much exterior negative sha qi (Bad Qi) hits your house

Definition of Sha Qi

Sha Qi can manifest in two distinct forms. The first is in its physical form (Xing Qi 形氣), discernible to a trained observer who can promptly identify this flaw. The second form is invisible (Yi Qi 意炁), yet equally capable of causing harm. The optimal course of action is to proactively avoid Sha Qi from the outset, allowing a structure to only absorb auspicious qi and safeguard itself from potential harm.

Invisible Sha primarily emanates from the realm of the flying star system. In the context of trigrams and the 5-element theory, specific phases can lead to the disruption of the unseen energy. An instance of this is when dealing with an energy pair of 1-9, where water dominates fire, giving rise to the Yi Qi Sha.

Since it is not feasible to transform it into an auspicious pair, the most effective approach is to neutralize it, ensuring that it has no adverse impact on the occupants in that particular area. 

In accordance with the principles of yin-yang theory, Sha Qi serves as an impediment to growth, eliminating any positive energy. Conversely, the complementary opposite, Sheng Qi, fosters growth in various aspects of life.

Hence, the practice of form school in Feng Shui holds paramount importance, as it involves taking a macroscopic perspective to identify and address potential obstructions in the immediate exterior of a dwelling.

Once this preliminary assessment is completed, attention is directed towards ensuring the smooth flow and circulation of qi within the home, pinpointing any potential disruptions to the flow.

How Intense is the Impact of the negative sha qi energy?

Of course, it depends on what exactly is causing the negative sha qi energies. As a guideline, the bigger the structure, the more powerful it is. In addition, distance and shape-form play a role as well. For example, a high rise building with a wall-knife (see photo below) has a much bigger impact as a small house. Smaller distances like five meters have a much stronger impact has far distance structures 50 meters away.

Feng Shui Negative Energy Protection and Cures

It came to our attention that some websites suggest adding a water fountain in the north area when bad chi energy is present. A word of caution we have to say about this. If the North sector already has bad sha chi energy (Feng Shui Flying Star), to add a Yang feature such as water can be disastrous. This would most definitely enhance the bad energy further. For that reason, use a Yang water feature (fountain) with a lot of caution.

Addressing any Sha Qi is crucial to revive and enhance the overall quality of Qi, bringing it back to life. Multiplying favorable Qi can effectively counteract any negative impact from Sha. There are multiple approaches to achieving this:

The optimal course of action is to proactively avoid Sha in the first place. If avoidance is not feasible, the next step is to conceal and block it from plain view.

On a psychological level, individuals should overcome their fear and anxiety regarding potential disasters. The mind plays a significant role; constant fixation on the threat can turn it into an obsession, where one’s own thoughts become more harmful than the physical manifestation of Sha Qi.

Additionally, often overlooked is the incorporation of symbolism. This involves implementing color shades and protective objects, such as personal gods or deities, that possess significant spiritual power to absorb and counteract any negative Sha.

Feng Shui bad energy protection using a Bagua Mirror

Bagua Mirrors are recommended by some Western Feng Shui Practitioner as an all-around cure for negative sha qi entering your home. It is advised to hang the mirror above the front door to reflect the bad energy away. Please keep in mind, that it can send away the good energy as well. We are not a big fan of using the mirror. I rather opt for other and better solutions as recommending further below in this article. Only at the last resort, the Bagua mirror might be an option. Again, it should be only considered in real emergencies or in extreme situations.

1. Air pollution Sha Qi (Turpid Qi)

Feng Shui impact of Air pollution Sha Qi (Turpid Qi). city covered in grey cloud of smok

Air pollution sha qi (Turpid Qi), represents a hindrance to the positive and nourishing force of sheng qi. While sheng qi enhances the environmental energy, sha qi impedes its enhancement in the surrounding atmosphere.

Examining the classical Book of Guo Po, the book of burial, we learn that qi travels with the wind and is contained by water boundaries. In areas heavily polluted with air, where clean air is absent, sheng qi cannot exist.

An intriguing reference in the “Classic of Azure Raven” script of Qingwu Jing (青烏經) describes the differentiation between yin and yang, clear and turbid (murky). Whether one enjoys a long life or succumbs to illness, the real master is revealed. In essence, clear and favorable qi ascends, while turbid or unhealthy qi descends.

Despite air pollution being less prevalent in ancient times, the turbid or polluted qi could still contaminate the soil, leading to the decline of sheng qi and the dominance of sha qi at the property. This underscores why some Grand Masters scrutinize soil quality during Feng Shui home consultations, as it influences the overall Feng Shui quality of the home.

From an environmental standpoint, air pollution sha qi undermines any auspicious and favorable characteristics of a dwelling. In practical terms, severe air pollution renders Feng Shui actions, such as Xuan Kong Flying Star and Xuan Kong Da Gua, ineffective.

Even a highly auspicious house, free from sha influences or unbalanced flying star influences, is adversely affected by severe air pollution. In summary, even a “Wang Shan, Wang Shui” Feng Shui house type becomes average at best.

On an individual level, looking through the egocentric lens, residents may use air purifiers to maintain indoor health. However, given that over 70% of environmental qi impacts interior energy flow, it remains unlikely that the incoming air pollution sha qi can be transformed into positive sheng qi, even with the use of human made air purification systems.

This issue is increasingly prevalent worldwide, notably in regions like Southeast Asia during the burning season, where air pollution reaches alarming levels, affecting health, the economy, and overall your wealth luck.

As for countermeasures to prevent turbid qi from bringing illness and bad luck into a home, there is limited action a homeowner can take, as government oversight is crucial in controlling and providing auspicious qi air quality to its citizens. On a personal level, individuals may choose to support environmentally conscious political parties.

In Feng Shui terms, regardless of the school used, if there is NO HEALTHY or auspicious SHENG QI in the environment, there is NO GOOD FENG SHUI to be observed.

2. Stagnant Water Sha

Stagnant Water Sha Feng Shui

“Qi travels with the wind and gathers at the boundaries of water,” as it was written in the classics of the “Book of Burials.” An overview of the most important external sha qi in Feng Shui would be incomplete without considering the role of water.

Water, alongside wind (air), stands as one of the most vital components in Feng Shui.

While clean and clear water symbolizes wealth, stagnant water is devoid of vibrancy and can be classified as lifeless, unable to foster growth and prosperity in the surrounding area.

In essence, clean water signifies wealth, while poor-quality water reflects illness, attracting various diseases from mosquito breeding grounds to unpleasant odors. Overall, stagnant water is considered one of the most inauspicious landforms to have around a home.

Remedy: When searching for a new house with good Feng Shui, it is advisable to avoid areas with smelly canals filled with trash or any form of stagnant water. This caution extends to your own water features, both inside and outside your home.

Ensure that the water is well-maintained and treated. Opt for locations near clear water lakes, streams, and rivers with a calm and gentle flow.

3. Tianzhan Sha, Chopper-from-Heaven Sha (天斩煞)

Tianzhan Sha, Chopper-from-Heaven Sha Feng Shui

the red arrows shows the impacted building of this sha

This type of Sha is predominantly observed in larger cities, specifically when two very tall buildings create a narrow gap and another building is directly facing this opening. A useful criterion to identify this particular Tianzhan Sha is if the two taller buildings are less than 90 meters or 300 feet apart, with both structures standing at least 50 meters tall.

The severity of this Sha lies in the fact that these gaps accumulate and constrict the incoming air flow, resulting in strong winds upon colliding with the opposing building.

In Feng Shui, a gentle breeze is preferred over strong winds. The potential issues for residents include health concerns, accidents, and an overall negative living environment, as it becomes challenging to gather Sheng Qi within the interior.

Unfortunately, the challenging aspect is that neutralizing this Sha energy is quite difficult. If a solution is sought, planting a substantial tree between the buildings may help, as it can absorb and redirect this detrimental Sha.

4. Peeping Tom Sha Qi / Poking Head Sha Chi (探头煞)

Peeping Tom Sha Qi Poking Head Sha Chi Feng Shui

Examining classical texts reveals that this peeping tom Sha chi pertains to a mountain peeping from behind another, a phenomenon mirrored in urban environments where a taller building protrudes behind another smaller structure.

Detecting this Poking Head Sha Chi: If you peer out of your window or door and observe a structure jutting out behind a neighboring building, you may be susceptible to the impact of this Sha.

Potential implications include romance scandals, falling victim to scams, or a colleague securing a promised job promotion meant for you. Superimposing the Luo Shu compass onto your floorplan helps pinpoint the affected sector of the home.

In general, if the affected sector contains the permanent, annual, or monthly flying stars 7, 3, or 5, exercise caution in your communication with others and steer clear of risk-prone investments.

If the energy chart permits, place a plant on the windowsill and be mindful of your health and financial matters. In urban settings, remedying this issue is often challenging, given the lack of influence on the exterior.

If the room receives ample sunlight from other exterior sources, keeping the curtain closed at the affected window is an option.

5. Pressing, Squeeze, or Sandwich Sha
bad example retail store location feng shui

This type of squeezing sha is easily noticeable, particularly in the form of a smaller house wedged between two taller buildings, resembling a sandwich bun. This scenario often occurs in downtown areas with the construction of new high-rise buildings, where some original owners of smaller houses resist selling their land.

The small house appears conspicuously out of place and experiences literal pressure from both taller structures. In the context of Feng Shui, which emphasizes balance in the surroundings, this disproportionately sized home struggles to achieve harmonious and balanced qi for its residents.

Not only do occupants feel constant unease and nervousness, but they can also face heightened pressure in terms of financial and relationship aspects.

Imagine yourself trapped in a confined space, struggling to breathe, with emotions running high. Unfortunately, there is no practical remedy to neutralize such a situation.

While some relief from the pressing sha impact may be achieved through interior remodeling to create the illusion of a wider, more open space, the effectiveness of this interior fix is quite limited.

6. Sharp Sha Qi
Sharp Sha Qi feng shui

The sharp sha qi should not be confused with the poison arrow in Feng Shui. Here are some of the most common sources:

  • Sharp towers, such as church towers
  • Streetlights pointing at the door or window
  • Triangular-shaped mountains in close proximity
  • Roads or signposts aligned with the home
  • Industrial chimneys

Let’s first discuss triangular-shaped structures, like a church tower. These sharply pointed structures signify a strong fire qi, which may be beneficial for spiritual or religious purposes but is generally unsuitable for a regular yang home.

If you can see such pointed structures from any window or door, you can undoubtedly sense the strong fire energy and sharpness directed your way. It feels like a neighbor is pointing a large samurai sword towards you – not a pleasant sensation, right?

As a general guideline, the taller and sharper the structure, the more impact it may have in terms of discomfort and potential anxiety on the residents.

Take a look outside your windows, and if the pointed structure is in a straight line affecting either the door or window, the impact is more pronounced.

If it is at an angle and less visible, the sharp sha clash is minimal. The best course of action is to plant a tall tree in between or install window shutters so that the structure is no longer visible. The phrase “out of sight, out of mind” nicely summarizes this remedy.

7. Lamp Pole or Piercing Heart Sha 

Lamp Pole or Piercing Heart Sha feng shui

the small pole in the above image causes not as much harm as a tall lamp post or electric pillar: Red zone = sha impact, outside red area = no impact

The Heart-Piercing Sha, or Lamp Pole Sha, is undeniably one of the most common negative exterior influences in Feng Shui. This unfavorable sha is probably affecting your home if you notice a lamp pole, thin tree, or any other pillar directly aligned in a straight line with your entrance door or window.

To confirm its possible impact, it’s advisable to visualize and draw imaginary lines extending outward from the left and right sides of your door. Using a laser-beam can be helpful, as sometimes the eyes may not be entirely accurate.

If the lamp pole falls within these imaginary boundary lines, there is a problem; however, if it is on the outside, there is no negative sha to be concerned about.

In some Asian countries, people install a sizable Chinese gourd (hulu) right in the path where the pillar aligns with the door or window. The Chinese gourd, believed to be a reflective guardian, can deflect the negative sha (see the image above under Feng Shui Bagua Mirror of how a Chinese gourd is being used as a protection mean).

The problem is that the Hulu often redirects the sha toward neighboring houses on the opposite side of the road. There’s a saying that karma comes around, and it’s the cosmic law that whatever harm you cause to others (in this case, your neighbors) will eventually return to you.

Personally, a cleaner and more efficient solution, if possible, is to plant bushes or a tall, bushy plant to block the path of the pillar’s sha. Plants have the ability to absorb negativity and neutralize it without causing harm to others.

8. White Tiger Sha

White Tiger Sha feng shui

The white tiger symbolizes one of the four guardian qi’s that protect your home. It’s important to understand that the white tiger qi should not be interpreted literally as the animal itself, but rather as a unique environmental qi that guards and protects a structure.

The white tiger qi is situated on the right side of the home when looking out from the door. As a general guideline, any structure on the right should not be larger than the green dragon qi, which is found on the opposite side toward the left (or east).

Associated with the west direction and the metal element, the white tiger has a predominant influence over females residing in the home. The presence of sharp roof corners, pylons (fire countering metal), or taller buildings on the left side can potentially bring disharmony, especially affecting the women in the household.

In our modern urban living, it is challenging to completely avoid this white tiger sha. Since it is not very harmful on its own, many other unfavorable aspects of bad form would need to be in place for it to have a significant impact on the home and its inhabitants.

9. Noise Sha

Noise Sha feng shui

Largely overlooked, but indeed, disruptive exterior noise is also considered a sha in Feng Shui, causing annoyance and disturbance among household members.

While some Feng Shui consultants may not fully acknowledge this as a comprehensive concept, it’s essential to recognize that qi travels through the wind, just like sound.

Therefore, if certain sounds disturb the household members in an irritating manner, it will impact their body qi, making them feel irritated, cranky, or argumentative.

Noise sha can stem from various outdoor sources, including noisy neighbors, road traffic noise for those living near busy roads, living close to an airport, or being in the flight path of airplanes.

The noise levels of 20 dBA are classified as a quiet room for studying or sleeping, while an airplane overhead approaching the home can reach levels of 110–130 dBA.

Prolonged exposure to loud noise not only disrupts sleep but also damages the nerve endings in the inner ear, which are irreparable and considered dead.

Here are some common outdoor noise sources that can affect you inside your home if you live close to or nearby:

  • Noisy neighbors are playing loud music
  • Proximity to an airport
  • Living above a pub or nightclub without proper sound insulation
  • A railroad track with 24/7 trains passing by
  • Busy highways
  • Concert and entertainment venues

The best remedy is, first and foremost, to avoid living in places with high noise levels. If unavoidable, the best course of action is to soundproof the most important rooms to shield them from exterior noise.

Fortunately, there are numerous effective solutions for wall soundproofing, including triple-layer glass windows and solid doors to keep unwanted noise outside.

10. Yin Sha
Yin Sha feng shui

the home is barely visible and covered in thick greenery

Yin sha occurs in environments where the overall house is overshadowed by excessive darkness. This situation can arise when a homeowner plants an abundance of thick trees and shrubs around the home, depriving it of the necessary yang energy from sunlight.

Another scenario is the dwelling’s location near an elevated roadway for purposes like a highway or skytrain. In such cases, the wealth and people’s luck associated with these buildings are minimal, and the sheng qi is diminished or even nonexistent. Additionally, psychological issues such as depression or other mental illnesses may manifest.

If the homeowner has control over the immediate exterior, such as their garden, it is advisable to trim down some trees to allow sunlight to reach crucial yang areas of the home, such as the living room, front door, study room, and home office.

For city dwellings affected by elevated roads, unfortunately, there is no remedy to rectify or neutralize this yin sha flaw.

11. Sharp Corner Sha – Wall Knife (Bi Dao)


The “Bi-Dao feature on some high-rise buildings or other structures does serve as a protective purpose for the dwelling itself. It will cut the good chi out, letting it enter into the building. However, the bad Sha Qi is been reflected away to surrounding buildings. Basically, this is not a good Feng Shui practice as it causes harm to others.

If the sharp corner sha from another building hits your home, be prepared to act. You cannot leave this issue unattended. Sharp corners on buildings and, as a matter of fact, any objects with sharp curves or pointed features can introduce negative energy, known as sha, towards both yin (burial site) and yang dwellings (such as homes or offices).


  • AVOID: If you are looking to buy a home, walk away if you notice the Bi-Dao feature on a neighbor building.
  • HIDE: Try to block the “cutting knife” by natural barriers such as trees or high bushes. Another option would be to build a wall. Obviously, this solution is only for a regular house, not a high-rise building.
  • ESCAPE: If affected, sell the place and move to a more auspicious location
  • ATTACK: Talk to your apartment management to see if they can do some building measures (install shooting canon on the roof top) to neutralize the bad Qi. Remember, the whole building is affected, not just you.

12. Poison Arrows from Surrounding Building Structures



Poison Arrows are by far the most common issue to generate bad chi. What is a poison arrow? feng shui poison arrow is a sharp form pointing toward your place. These sharp corners accumulate and create bad feng shui energy which shoot in high speed towards the pointing direction. If by any change your front door or window is in its way, it will enter and infect your home.

The worst case scenario is when the poison arrows hits your front door. In this case, the whole household is going to be affected by the Sha-Qi. A not so worry some scenario is when it hits one of your windows (see photo above). Here, block the bad energies by dark curtains is an advisable solution.

However, you can never open this window. The window needs to stay closed and blocked out at all time. Why? If you let fresh air in, you allow the bad energy to enter your home as well. To sum up, block the path of the bad Sha-Qi Energy with walls or thick plants.

13. Electromagnetic field (EMF) from Cell-Phone Tower (Wu Gong Sha)



The cell phone tower at the backyard of this house causes two major problems. Firstly, every single cell-phone in this area is locked into this tower creating major electronic wave exchanges. Can you imagine if 10,000 people’s cell phone frequency hitting this house all the times?

These poisonous radiations will affect the whole household causing negative energy disturbances. Bad health and temper issues inside the house can be foreseen. No armor or protection can cure these intense and bad chi energy.

14. Above Ground Wires (Power-Lines / Cable-network)


Above ground wires will emit electromagnetic radiation which can cause health issues. The Power-Lines problematic can be divided into two different types. The first type, are the main power line towers (40-50 meters tall) carrying high voltage electricity to whole neighborhoods. As the radiation is extremely strong it is not is advisable to live closer than 30 meters around such towers.

On the other hand, the smaller residential power-lines are ok if no big power-transformer is located right next to the house. Take the case of the above picture which shows a great example of how NOT to handle above-ground wiring. These problems are more common in bigger Asian cities. Living right next to such a big junk of cables creates very bad Sha Qi for the surrounding buildings.

15. Artificial Electromagnetic Field Sha Qi in Bedroom

artifical emf radiation bedroom feng shui

Artificial electromagnetic fields (EMF) emitted from sources such as electric cables running behind our bed headboards, external outlets, or bedside lamps can disperse EMF currents, which could lead to insomnia and headaches. Few are aware that these currents impact the pineal glands, reducing melatonin production and contributing to various health issues for individuals during their eight hours of daily sleep.

To simplify, the recommended EMF level should not exceed one (1) unit. However, when wires are discovered behind the headboard, the reading can skyrocket to 6 vol meter or higher, depending on the extent of the wiring.

The World Health Organization (WHO) warns that prolonged exposure to high EMF levels can potentially lead in some cases to cancer, insomnia, or prolonged headaches. Further, research by the scientist Limbardo indicates that extreme exposure impacts the immune system, decreasing its activity by over 50%.

A very common habit among many individuals involves placing their cell phones on the nightstand and allowing them to charge overnight.

Even when a cell phone charger remains plugged into the power outlet without connecting to the phone, the electromagnetic field (EMF) level registers an astonishing 113, exceeding the recommended level by over 100 times.

When the cell phone is connected to charge, the level increases further, ranging between 330 and 360, depending on the brand.

If the phone is disconnected from the charger and turned off, the electric field emission level still remains at 7, which is seven times higher than the recommended safe level.

In conclusion, it is advisable to keep your phone out of the bedroom and charge it in other areas such as the living room, office, or dining room.

A practical and most protective solution involves using an EMF shield, which could reduce the level to a healthy 0.4 and therefore avoid this Feng Shui sha qi.

16. Rushing-at Sha: Building surrounded by too many roads


To illustrate, the above photo shows a prime example of an inauspicious building location. Firstly, the building is surrounded by too many roads. Secondly, it is facing a T-Junctions without any protections at the front door. All the bad sha qi Feng Shui energy is able to shoot right into the building.

There are some other issues as well. Next, across the road is a major construction site which lasts for many years. Positive Qi energy does not like this kind of surroundings. Lastly, a Buddhist temple is located at the rear of the building. In Buddhism, a deceased person is cremated at a temple. In other words, the whole environment energy is taken over by death. To conclude, there is nothing auspicious about this building. No Feng Shui negative energy protection remedies can cure all these bad influences.

Cure /Remedy: In Case your home is surrounded by many roads, build a solid wall or use a very thick bush to block the Feng Shui bad energy from entering your home.

17. Geopathic Stress Areas (Sick Building)


What is Geopathic Stress? In short, it is a collection of very bad negative energy concentrated in one area caused by environmental pollution. In this case, the negative radiation is caused by electromagnetic frequencies (EMF).

Our client called us for a consultation. The reason was given that the family was suffering from severe health issues. The problems started right after they moved into the new apartment. We were literally shocked when we surveyed the outside of the home.

This living space is being hit by bad energy literally from all sides. The main electronic unit and the swimming pool equipment room are located right under our client’s apartment. Notice the wall cracks above the rooms? These cracks are moving upwards straight into our client’s home. If this was not bad enough, a huge power transformer box is situated just 2 meters away. This transformer hammers bad EMF energies into the whole place as well.

We told our client, that this place is beyond cure. Not the best Feng Shui negative energy protection remedies can fix this situation. We suggested to sell the apartment and move to a more auspicious home. Luckily, they followed our advice. The family’s health improved rapidly and harmony was returned to the family. In conclusion, not only worry about the interior’s beauty of a place but also survey the surroundings very carefully.

18. The famous T-Junctions discussion (Lu Chong)


A home located at a T-Junction is hit by extreme energy forces (bad chi). These Sha Qi forces are created by fast moving vehicles hitting the house with high impact speed. To illustrate, image a car crash test scenario. The car is driving in full speed again a wall.

This time, however, the energy will enter your home. This aggressive and negative Sha Qi creates miss-fortunate such as money loss, health issues, and relationship problems. Of cause, not a single family member is left out. In general, the busier the traffic, the more bad shi is being absorbed by the house.

Different types of T-Junctions

  • Regular T-Junction
  • Hidden T-Junction (Black-Lane Sha-Qi)
  • Y-Junctions (Scissor cutting house in half)
  • Back T-Junction (T-Junctions is located on the back side of the house)

A complete guide: Feng Shui t junction Tips

19. Construction Sha

feng shui construction

Construction sha is commonly defined as a disruption in the earth’s chi caused by nearby construction sites or home renovations. Constant noise, dust, and the occasionally poisonous odor of paint could have a negative impact on health. Of course, it is not set in stone, but the possibility is there. Extreme dust can easily cause allergies in someone with a more delicate immune system. Furthermore, because the constant noise can wear on the nerves, negative effects on relationships (conflict, quarrel) may occur.

It is ideal to prevent excessive construction sha from happening in the first place. If demolition occurs anywhere near or at your property, this is seen as sha, or negative energy.

In classical Feng Shui, the eight compass directions are known to have an impact on various family members and body parts. If a construction project is taking place in the south of your home, the heart and eye organs are prone to problems.

What factors could accelerate the impact of construction sha

There are other variables at play that can amplify the effects of building sha. Here are a few examples to point out:

  • It affects the family member related with this direction more than others.
  • If the energies of the construction sha match with the direction of your own trigram or Chinese zodiac, it has a greater impact.

20. Cemetery / Burial Sites / Hospital

If you happen to live near a cemetery or hospital, the surrounding places can be filled with negative energy. These places create a lot of Yin Energy. We always should seek the more active Yang Energy from our surroundings. Even if the graveyard, hospital or prison is very close to your place, you shouldn’t be concerned too much. As a matter of fact, if you cannot see these inauspicious places you are just fine.

Nothing to worry about. However, if these places are in plain sight, try to block the view with plants or cover up the windows with thick curtains. It is not the best solution, but suitable.

21. Worship Places (temple, churches, mosques etc)

These places have quite a mixed energy set up. On the positive side, happiness is created by wedding ceremonies. On the negative side, sadness is felt because of funeral functions. In Feng Shui terms, if you can avoid to live nearby these places, do it.

22 – 30. Other Inauspicious Places Causing Sha:

  • Prison: It is obvious that prisons have a very bad energy environment
  • Reverse Bow (Fan Gong Sha): The house is located above a road or river that is shaped like a bow
  • Sky Cutting Sha-Qi (Tian Zhan Sha): Two high-rise buildings create a small alley cutting into one’s house if it is located on the opposite side of the small road.
  • Sandwich Sha-Qi (Jia Sha Sha): A small building is sandwiched in between two high-rise buildings
  • Pillbox (Yao Guan Sha): It is a small structure or water tank on top of a building. If it is visible to you, be aware of people backstabbing and gossiping behind your back.
  • Car Junk-Yard
  • Landfill (radius of 3 km) – the bad trash smell can be carried by the wind for up to 3 km
  • Last House in a Dead End Road
  • Situated at the end of a Cul-de-sac street (houses around the circled road)

    Do you think it’s bad to live next to a nursing home?

    • utopiaflorida_t7b221dn March 26, 2023 at 3:24 am - Reply

      According to Feng Shui principles, the energy of a location can impact the health of those who reside there. Whether living near a nursing home is good or bad depends on the type of care provided within the facility. For example, an assisted living home, where the elderly can perform daily activities independently, is considered safe to live close by.

      However, it is not recommended to live near a care center that provides maximum assistance for conditions like dementia, aggressive behavior, or end-of-life care. It is best to maintain a distance of at least 300 meters (500 feet) from such facilities as they may have a morgue, which can create negative and yin energy. Being too close to such locations can affect your interior qi and have various negative effects on your well-being.

    I have an extremely large pole in front of my house (not in front of thd entrance door) have put up two bagua mirrors. Still not feeling lucky (accident at home, money loss, arguments) any advice?

    • FengShuiBalanz Team March 29, 2024 at 6:06 am - Reply

      I’m sorry to hear that you’re experiencing a phase of bad luck in your home. It’s important to consider the impact of the large pole and its specific location within your home. As the article suggests, if feasible, it’s best to block the pole using large shrubs, bushes, or a fence.

      Additionally, I recommend examining your immediate surroundings to see if any other environmental factors might be negatively affecting your home. In my experience, having extremely bad luck often results from a combination of several factors rather than just one issue.

      There’s a high possibility that other factors may also be contributing, such as the home’s location (in terms of form school), unseen interior energies, and issues with interior qi flow.
