Enjoying great feng shui requires us to be alert to items left in the home which are no longer useful, are broken or that may be emitting YIN energy. These items are best removed; otherwise they can bring negative effects and illness energies. Here are SEVEN things that must never be left around the living, dining or bedrooms in the home.
1. CLOCKS THAT HAVE STOPPED
Either due to being spoilt or where batteries have run out or need to be repaired. Clocks measure time; these are objects in the home that impinge on the moment-to-moment vibrations within any space. When clocks stop, it suggests that time has come to a stop. This has a negative connotation that can bring about a negative outcome.
2. CHIPPED GLASSES
These are one of the most common items that must be discarded. Drinking from a chipped glass suggests broken promises and causes you to suffer from betrayal luck. You can also get into a trouble as a result of the words you speak, or from words spoken by others. A common result is that you get gossiped about.
3. BROKEN PLATES AND BROKEN CROCKERY
is a sign of poverty. Never ever eat from a bowl that is cracked or worse, broken, no matter how slight. The effect of eating from a damaged bowl or plate is worse than drinking from a chipped glass or mug. Throw these out! Likewise, never use any vases that have cracks or are cracked near the rim – displaying flowers in such vases brings misfortune luck.
4. DRIED FLOWERS
These are sad indications of something beautiful that has died. They send out YIN vibrations and should never be left inside the home. Even in the garden, dried flowers should be cut away and discarded.
5. LAST YEAR’S CALENDARS
These must be thrown out as soon as a new year arrives or even before that. Old calendars that mark the past also bear the energies of previous years, and it is always better to look ahead rather than backwards.
6. CACTUS PLANTS
especially those with prickly thorns, send out poison arrows. When they are displayed in the home, they cause unnecessary conflict energies to pile up. Cactus that have thorns are best left outside near gates and entrances so they bring protective energies instead.
7. CHAIRS LEFT EMPTY
When there is a single chair that is never sat upon, it is best to either make sure someone sits on it fairly regularly, or to remove it altogether. Having a permanently empty chair inside the home invites harmful spirits into the home.
