Feng Shui Tip of the Month
is a good way to keep your money from being "drained away."
the Chinese, water equals money. This is why you cannot
go into a Chinese restaurant which does not have a water
fountain, fish tank, or at least a picture of fish. This
is believed so strongly that in Hong Kong or Taiwan, you
will see wallpaper in what is known as the "fish scale"
design and rugs which have the "rippling water"
water equals money then a bathroom is an area which takes
money (water) away from the home.
To prevent this money drain, try to always keep your bathroom
doors closed. When not in use, cover sink drains. Keep the
shower curtain closed and close the tub drain. It is very
important to keep toilet lids down (I know you ladies will
love telling the men that one!). I did a Feng Shui consultation
for a publishing company in Albuquerque and told the owners
this. A month later, I was in their offices again and went
to their public restroom. At eye level over the toilet was
a sign - "PLEASE PUT TOILET LID DOWN AFTER USE - IT'S
GOOD FENG SHUI."
is considered especially bad Feng Shui to have a bathroom
in the WEALTH "life area" of your home or office.
I once knew a business lady, who had always been successful
in every past endeavor, start up two retail stores in
the area and after struggling for almost four years, she had
to close both stores. Both locations had a bathroom in the
WEALTH area and one of them not only had the bathroom in the
WEALTH area, the bathroom was in sight, and in a direct line,
to the main entrance door. The first thing that every customer
would see upon entering that store was the bathroom door.
She did not heed my recommendation but I hope you do - hang
a small wind chime (preferably with a water symbol on it like
a dolphin, seahorse, etc.) above the center of the outside of the bathroom
door frame. This
not only negates the bathroom being in WEALTH and draining your finances, it also enhances
the WEALTH area by having a water symbolization on the chime.
you don't already have one which you can use, we always carry
a large supply of small chimes. For the problem stated above, the best cure would be a small dolphin chime. Please contact
us for more information if you have this particular negative
Feng Shui aspect in your home or office.
