Sometime last year I had bought this painting from Etsy – from a painter from United States – because my bedroom walls were bare and I couldn’t stand it any longer. I wanted something arty fartsy – so I got this oil painting but I was worried that the oil painting of tree/trunks and some flowers may cause feng shui harm to us who ware sleeping in the bedroom. So I continued checking for more information and finally found it.
Apparently, any kind of flower paintings are not advisable unless the person sleeping in it is sick. Otherwise, it may cause some harm to the person sleeping in it. Also not to put lonely pictures or pictures of someone fiece – so maybe that is why there were so many people looking for the priest last sunday.
Sometimes when i visit a friend’s home – and see a painting of their great grandmother or their late grandmother – i wonder to myself if it was a good thing to hang a dead person’s portrait in the family room? So I asked a feng shui master about it. it is said that women feature strongly in power portraits and from a feng shui perspective, hanging a picture or painting of the Matriarch is as important (if not more so) than hanging one of the Patriarch. It is the mother figure that keeps the family together and her symbolic presence is a must in any home that wants to enjoy the nurturing care of family feng shui.
Traditional matriarchal portraits are best when accompanied by the trimmings of her stature and the premier role she holds within the family. She is best shown wearing the family jewels and if the family aspires to wealth and position, then symbols or indications of her possessions should also be displayed in the portraits. These aesthetic credentials can be hinted at – no need to be too obvious or blatant – but the whole picture should suggest someone of substance. The sense of her importance in the family and her moral authority so to speak must somehow emerge. Then only does it qualify to be a good feng shui portrait and her place in the family will then never be usurped. She will never be cast aside!
So your kid finally turned 18 and they got their learner’s license and wants to have their own car? Like any parents – we are very worried – we don’t want anything to happen to them. Besides making sure that the car is in good condition – and looking for a good and cheap auto insurance , what can one do to keep our kid safe and travel safely – so I was asked by a good friend.
I told my good friend that first – you have to make them pay for the car and the auto insurance – that way – it would teach them that it would cost them more money – if they get into an accident. Of course, it teaches them responsibility too – not only to the car but to themselves. And after that – you can buy a mystic knot and hang it in their cars and tell them to rub the mystic knot – if they are stuck in a jam or in some kind of a danger – and wish for something good. It is said that the mystic knot helps calm a person and situation.
Now I bet that caught your attention .. hahah!! yes! I would too – who doesn’t love the money right? I sure love my wealth chime, not only does it make a good decoration – and just like my hgh it’s essential. But don’t forget to remove bad energy and ensure that all the negativity eliminated from your property. And don’t forget to clear all clutter and make sure the entrance to your home or office is welcoming to welcome the good chi.

14. Managing Fire and water elements
Inside your kitchen make sure that the water tap is not near the stove and doesn’t directly face it. The stove symbolizes the fire element which will react negatively to the water element.
15. Revitalizing Salt rituals in Kitchens
Once a year give the floor, door and walls of the kitchen a salt wipe to ensure that kitchen surfaces are clear of negative shi and that food cooked in your kitchen never gets afflicted by harmful or stagnant energy.
16. Restful Energy in The bedroom
Your bedroom signifies a place of security and sanctuary. It is best to choose soothing colours rather than stimulating ones. Avoid too much yang energy in the bedroom. Try not to activate the bedroom with too many decorative objects especially wedding photos.
17. Cleansing Ceremonies in bedrooms
Wipe all the surfaces in the bedroom with a cleaning cloth dipped in natural salt water. Then, use space clearing tools to cleanse stagnate chi that may have accumulated. Open all your windows and doors to allow good flow of chi.
18. Observe the renovation taboos every year
There are taboo areas to leave well alone. Renovations or other disturbances in these areas will cause misfortune to befall those living in the house. Suppress the afflicted area with cure and enhance the good area.
