Feng Shui Notes 1

We were very lucky to have a friend of a friend offer to do a free feng shui consultation over the weekend.

The issues we face:
  1. My wife's vexing health issues.
  2. Our inability to build up any savings.
It may be that our bathroom could be contributing to both issues. We had a picture of a fish in the bathroom. She said that this is money going down the toilet. Also, since the bathroom is centrally-located in the house, our health was also going down the toilet. Here's the remedy:
  1. Place a mirror on the outside of the door.
  2. Replace the mirror that overlooks the sink.
  3. Keep the toilet lid down.
  4. Keep the door closed.
  5. Replace the "fish" picture with a waterfall picture.
  6. Keep the drains "stopped."
  7. Tie a 9" length of red string around each drain pipe.
So far we did 3 - 7 with one exception -- 5. We did remove the fish picture, and I have a photograph of a waterfall that I could have developed into a 8x10 as a replacement.

She spent about two and a half hours with us. I'll write down more notes in later posts.

I like what you're sharing here.
I'm going to pass this info on to a friend of mine who has several fish painted on her bathroom wall and definitely money is going down the drain rapidly at their place.

I also like what you took the time to say on my post regarding possessions. Thank you and best wishes Ribbon

We have the Feng Shui equivalent in India called Vaastu Shastra and it is quite popular. I personally have not felt the need for any consultation yet, but perhaps I should! I do have persistent problems that do not seem to go away.

Hi VM:

I think she focused on recommendations that are unique to her culture. Stinking up the bathroom, peeing on the toilet seat, leaving a loogie in the sink -- these are all Universal Offenses, and we should need no rules for them.

What we do is run the fan and spray air freshener when we ... um, at the appropriate times.

Thanks so much for posting all three times! (e-mail sent)

Hi rummuser:

I've never heard of Vaastu Shastra. Thanks for mentioning it!
