Electro-magnetic Fields

The Chi flow in your home can be affected by electrical emissions from all electrical appliances. High electromagnetic fields (EMFs) along with high electric fields can be associated with serious health issues. Symptoms include headaches, tiredness, depression, epilepsy, behaviour changes in children, skin complaints and possibly cancer. Most at risk of Electrical Sensitivity are children, pregnant women and convalescents. Typical sources of exposure from power frequency EMFs are:

• Power lines
• Electrical Substations
• House Wiring
• Mobile phones & DECT phones
• WiFi
• Many standard electrical appliances

To counteract any of these issues it is advisable to keep electrical appliances away from sleeping and sitting areas and to place some crystals such as clear quartz, rose quartz or amethyst by electrical devices to harmonise the energy and to allow good chi flow. Plants such as spider plants and peace lily are also useful in helping to absorb the electro-magnetic energy.

House Cleansing

Have you ever walked into a room and felt the atmosphere change? Is there a room in your home where you feel uncomfortable? Energetically, everything that happens in a building, actions and emotions, ripples out like the effect of a stone dropped in a pond and becomes recorded in the walls, floors, furniture and objects, plants, animals and people.

The build-up of negative energy over a period of time will cause stagnation and blockages in the chi energy flow and in turn affect the health of the occupants and their lives.

Stagnant Chi

For example, if you are not getting on well with your partner or you have difficulty in finding a partner, it may be down to stagnant chi affecting the relationship area of your home. This negative chi can also affect other life areas such as your health, career, good fortune, creativity and much more.

When a person is feeling stuck with some issue in life, or is having recurring arguments with their partner or family, it is usually possible to find a corresponding area in their living space with stuck energy. Once this energy is cleared the problem will start to resolve by giving the person a fresh start.

House cleansing is particularly effective when used in conjunction with conventional Feng Shui. The combination of these two processes gives many clients a life-transforming experience.

Encouraging Energy Flow

After dealing with clutter, Geopathic Stress, electro-magnetic fields and house cleansing you can then think about placement of plants, mirrors, symbolic artwork, lighting, colours and ornaments to encourage a good energy flow.

Once you have identified your life areas you can then add small cures to those areas that will help your health, relationships, career, good fortune and other areas of your life.

Feng Shui is not magic but by using your intention and connection to the chi flow in your home you can enhance your living space and bring about positive changes in your life.
