I just wonder if anyone here would seriously think Feng Shui can help your health related issue? I mean classical chinese feng shui. Not those asking you to put a crystal somewhere in the house or remove your clutter etc.

I wonder if we can do a quick vote here.

RE: Sort out health issue with Feng Shui

Well chiwing, I guess the straight answer to your question is 'yes' of course it can help...we are after all discussing energy here, and we are energy...therfore if the energies around us are stale/stuck/negative then yes we can easily become ill and I feel sure that Feng Shui could & would help with a health issue.

luv & peace

RE: Sort out health issue with Feng Shui

Hello Stormdeva. How are Sally and Liberty today?

Yeah, I am wondering if the concept of "Feng Shui can influence health" is too much for most people. I found that most people need to experience it themselves before they even think it is possible. But then if they meet a New Age Feng Shui guy first, they will never think feng shui works - which is a shame.

You are quite right though. Classical Chinese Feng Shui is a study of earth magnetic field and the energy inside a house can do a lot of good as well as a lot of bad to the residents (health, relationship, wealth etc). I can't help to quote my colleague's website there. [link] http://www.purefengshui.com/case_study_1.htm[/link] An experienced feng shui practitioner should be able to confirm illness in the house before the owners even say a word. (Okay, the article was written for feng shui study point of view instead.)

I welcome anyone to express their views here and I am happy to help to explain/answer some short questions if I can.

P.S. Stormdeva, your website is very nice too.

RE: Sort out health issue with Feng Shui

Hmmm.... pretty disappointed with the lack of response or interests shown. As I suspected, the idea of "Feng Shui could be related to health issue" is too much for people in the UK at the moment.....

Anyway, merry christmas everyone.

RE: Sort out health issue with Feng Shui

Hi Chi Wing,

I definitely believe it could help. As you know I had my new house visited by a Feng Shui practitioner recently. I have now put most of her suggestions into place and am moving in this Friday. The other suggestions will take longer tine scales but I will get them done as soon as I can. I don't know what effect I will notice as she says it can take 6 months for the energy to make a real impact on you but if the house doesn't have an adverse effect then that's a great start! I still intend to email you more in depth about the reading she did as I said I would but I can't get to a PC much just now because we are in the process of moving. But she called it traditional FS, I think Imperial FS. And it seemed very much like common sense. I was very pleased with the report she put together.

RE: Sort out health issue with Feng Shui

Congrs for your new flat. Are you going to invite all of us to your flat warming party??

Most cures should work either instant, 3 weeks or 3 months. However, it is difficult in your case because you have nothing to compare. You should see a significant difference in health before and after. Obviously, the good thing is: you don't have to be sick first before you see feng shui does work! (although you have nothing to compare the result! Well, we can't have everything in the world. Can we?!?!?!?)

However, as you are not implementing everything at one go. Might be you can feel the difference each time after you place an remedy. In fact, that is what I encourge my clients to do. Feel the difference or improvement yourself. Don't talke my words.

Loads of love to your new flat. Any problem, just shout. I am happy to help whenever I can.

I think you may well be right...I have little understanding of 'Feng Shui' but do have an interest...maybe, it might be an idea to 'educate' us little by little...so we can also learn about your wonderful art!

And a very Merry Christmas to you...enjoy

luv & peace

RE: Sort out health issue with Feng Shui

Hi Stormdeva,

It is just like one of those things. Say, in astrology, it is difficult to say, oh, how do I look at my love life from my chart? It is not something we can explain in one or two sentences. That is why formal training is important. However, just a few pointers here anyway. Don't let the following scared you if you are not facing the right direction.

In Eight House Feng Shui, each person has four good and four bad directions. You are supposed to be facing that direction and the head pointing to that direction when you are sleeping. Visualise earth magnetic lines. So you want to make sure you are in line with the earth magnetic energy based on your Gua number. However, it is a beginner's level. It is silly to say, your hushand's head needs to point to east when the wife's head needs to point to west when sleeping. Also impractical too.

In another school of feng shui, you look at the flying star of your house energy chart. For example, the sickness energy is from the north direction this year. So, if your bedroom is located in the north sector this year and you are sick. Then you need to pay more attention to it. However, it is NOT the whole picture. It also depends on what other energies are in that sector and the forms there.

However, your house should reflect your health situation based on the energy chart. A qualified practitioner should be able to see this from the chart.

Hope it helps.
Merry Christmas

RE: Sort out health issue with Feng Shui

I suspect anyone that is serious about a holistic approach to health would consider Feng Shui to be of benefit. After all (and I'm guessing) it covers the whole aspect of the environment in which we live & work and especially our home that we spend a good proportion of our time. [&:]

I feel it was more the approach of this thread, which wasn't very inviting.

I can tell you what switched me off when I first looked at it for what it's worth and it may just be a cultural type difference. [:-]

The initial question - I just wonder if anyone here would seriously think Feng Shui can help your health related issue?

That would be a bit like me (as an osteopth) starting a thread with the question -Does anyone here think that osteopathy would help with a neck or back problem? It is, as the Americans would say - 'a no-brainer!'.

So, then one might move on to ask - why would anyone ask such a question, if that is what they do and, presumably they believe/know that it works?

It may be to 'test the water' to see what sort of folks frequent this cyber space or it may be to promote this approach or themselves. And those airing on the side of caution might suspect the latter.

Add to that the keeness for an immediate reply & contributing more than half of the total number posts to the thread seems to support the theory. [:o]

The upside

I for one (knowing little about etiquette & diplomacy) & I suspect many on HP would appreciate your input. ๐Ÿ™‚

Suggest

Just chipping in if & where you feel you maybe able to help or give a few pointers. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Maybe start a thread with a few basic principles or common problem or things that we tend to do that's completely adverse to the flow of 'good' chi. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The challenge

Given that the folks on HP are a minority, most of us have grown up in a culture that 'doctor knows best' - the problem being is that our medical system is based on a reductionist model and any shift toward a more holistic way of looking at health, life, etc is likely to take a very long time. ๐Ÿ™

In short - this means we have grown up with an attititude that we have grown up with the belief that if we have a health problem, then we go see some one ( a doctor or consultant) and they fix it for us. I trust you see the dilemma. We are still in the early stages that health is our own responsibility & the 'experts' are there to advise only. To make matters worse, due to our history, most of that advice has been poor at best. [&o]

Germ Theory was a large nail in the coffin of the idea that there was any sort of vital force that holds all this stuff together. It gave medics something else to blame for ill health. Pretty much since then, they been looking to blame anything external that they can think of & and only looking at disease or pathology rather than looking to understand health for answers. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

RE: Sort out health issue with Feng Shui

Anahata, thank you for your point of views. I hope you don't mind if add a few points.

First of all, reading feng shui of a house is just like doing a life reading for a person. A house has its own birth chart. Without knowing all these info (e.g. year of construction of the building), it is difficult and probably impossible to comment much. Just like saying I am 49 years old, will I find love next year. massagemonkey has a feng shui consultation done (not by me). I think she can confirm the construction year and the facing of the building is required before a geniue consultant made any comment.

This is an UK list. I am only located in Glasgow and mainly serve the people in Glasgow. If I am using this to advertise myself, I think I would use local newspaper instead. It is however, just like some people believe in God. They do not mind to spread the words of God at their own time. What do they get from it? I have to say, I feel very discouraging from your response. Just like chinese acupuncture. It was not accepted by British Medical Council until recent years. I was willing to share my time and knowledge to the group and seem to get hit back right into my face.

I remember someone said this: In the old years, we only take care of our physical body. So we see doctors when we don't feel well. Only in recent years, we take care more care of our spiritual, emotional etc bodies. (and feng shui is not spiritual at all!)

You are quite right about no brainer. That is why black hat feng shui (which is not feng shui at all) took over the New Age.

I was wondering if it was because people do not understand what feng shui is about, so I asked a direct question. Might be you are right. British people don't like direct question much. Might be I should ask: have you been sick lately since you moved into your new house?

Oh well, Merry Christmas.

And Anahata, feng shui is more than the flow of good chi. That is a concept very much influenced by the New Age. Where-ever you got that idea from, ask the person (or look through the book), if they ever explain what Feng Shui means other than wind and water.

A while ago, I went into a spiritual healing clinic and the lady claimed she knows feng shui (and she gave consultation to others). She said, feng shui is an art of placement. If you feel right, it is right. I shared this story with my feng shui colleague and she replied: keep smiling.

RE: Sort out health issue with Feng Shui

Hi Chi Wing,

I have just checked into the forum for the first time in a long while, and I noticed that the message that I posted to you that I thought hadn't worked has in fact worked!

Please don't be discouraged, I think your advice will be appreciated, sometimes it just takes a while for the message to get through. And if people don't realise just yet, then I'm sure they will when the time is right for them.

Certainly I have noticed a huge difference in various aspects of my well being since I have moved into my new flat and so has my partner. We had the feng shui done before we moved in and I am certain that this has had an impact. I will continue to implement the practitioner's advice as there is still some stuff to do, and as you suggested, I will monitor any changes.

Lucy

RE: Sort out health issue with Feng Shui

Hello, I have only just seen this thread, and find it very interesting.
I was only thinking in the last few days I would like to have our house looked at with regards to feng shui as I am sure there are problems in this house!
I haven't ever really liked it (we have been here a year) and both my son and I have experienced unprecedented health probs.
We are renting so unable to make any big changes, and I really want to move I feel so strongly about it!
Anyway, thank you for the information, I wasnt aware that there was classic feng shui and new age feng shui though I see it makes perfect sense that a new age style would evolve from the traditional teachings.

Sharon, might I ask: by any chance what colour is your son's bedroom?

You raise a good point regarding New Age Feng Shui too. There is nothing wrong with something being labelled as or associated to "New Age". and you got it. It is only okay if they came from or evolved from the Classical version. and that is exactly the problem. New age feng shui teaches people divides your home into life station where your main door is your career sector and something like far left corner from your main door is your wealth corner and put a crystal there, you will be rich. Can anyone spot a problem here?

His bedroom is blue/purple and pink (I know, a boy in a pink room, but his little sister shares it and as I say, we are renting so not able to do much about it!)

RE: Sort out health issue with Feng Shui

Very interesting, Sharon. Well, there might be evidence that feng shui can indeed affect health then. Pink, red, purple are fire element. It can strengthen the sickness energy. Without seeing the house, I can't really comment any further. However, for the meanwhile, could you move him to another room? (I heard no). Could you use a bit more white in the room (I heard white is boring for the children). Could you play quite a bit of piano music there please?

RE: Sort out health issue with Feng Shui

Hello Chiwing,

I've only just seen this thread -how odd.

I am interested in Feng Shui and have briefly run through your webiste - i like the matter of fact approach giving good basic advice. When i get into something i tend to read lots about it first. Would you be able to recommend a good book on feng shui?

What are your thoughts on people re-energising their home with advice from a book? I accept it perhaps cannot be as good as somebody coming to ones home but for those who wish to test the waters a little first it must have some positive effects -yes/no?

Thanks

Rav

Hello Rav.

One and only one good book available in the market that I would recommend on FS is: Complete Idiot Guide to Feng Shui Second Edition. It has to be second edition. First edition does not have the input of Master Joseph Yu. Other books give you little or wrong information. Don't fall into the marketing trap!! It is good to read a good book if you want to find out more about a subject. If you want to practise, it is better to go for a proper formal training instead of reading a book.

Regarding re-energising their home with advice from a book - well, it depends on who wrote the book, does the person know enough about the subject and will the person tell you ALL (the complete) "secret" / skills / techniques involved for 5.99 GBP instead of whatever the amount they charge you. (I have nothing to against the good practitioners charging clients, as we need to make a living too. Also payment is a mean of exchanging energy. But writing books without telling the whole truth which subsequently mislead the nation is very bad. ) The good thing is: Re-energising your home is to increase the yang energy of your house which involved a party (!) with your friends and families!!!

For Feng Shui - you should seek advice from the professional all the time (and I mean professional, not the fake one!)
For Home Re-energising - interesting enough, you can do it yourself. However, it will be worth to have a practitioner to show you how to do it first. Feel the difference. A good practitioner should be able to give you a set of dates which you can re-energising your home again (if you wish to) by repeating what (s)he has done. Might be I should emphasize here: I am talking about chinese way of home re-energising, which is to increase the yang energy of your house. Not space clearing or anything else etc.

The last question of yours asked: "DIY with book must have some positive effects - yes/no": Not necessary. The same as what I say above. Also, what is written in a book in not always true. Some books say hang a crystal in your house and you will activate your money luck etc. Does it work? Well, it is written in many books in the markets though! There is the whole point regarding Feng Shui Research Centre. We emphasise people to think, understand why, try it and make your own conclusion instead of believing the books blindly. So, having said all these, my advice is: do give it a try and see if you can feel any difference, as long as you are not doing something irreversible. The only bad thing about DIY first without the practitioner is: if it doesn't work, then you will think re-energizing doesn't work instead of the book not telling you the truth! So, don't forget about this.

Does it help?
