Ever walked into a house that felt like home? Ever reminisced about the best year of your life, and wondered why everything came together for you? It could be Feng Shui.
Simply put, Feng Shui is about creating a harmonious environment. Its the ancient Chinese Science and Art of placement, intended to improve our health, harmony, longevity, career and wealth.
Pronounced, Fung Shway, it was a jealously guarded secret for thousands of years. Now, the benefits of Feng Shui can be enjoyed by anyone. In fact, Feng Shui is a part of everyday life for many Australian businesses, home owners, decorators, and architects.
June from June Turner Designs and Lifestyles has been an expert Feng Shui practitioner for 13 years. Feng Shui can be simple or involved whatever youre comfortable with. Decorate a room or buy a home that is perfect for your family.
The key is energy (or Qi Chee). June offers ten quick tips that can improve the flow, transformation, and containment of Qi in your life:
1) Remove shoes before entering a home. Dont take your problems in with you.
2) Cook at least one meal a day and eat at the table as a family.
3) Never have knives on show even in a block.
4) Always sit or stand facing the door (or its reflection).
5) Keep the toilet lid down and bathroom and laundry doors closed.
6) Don’t sleep under white blankets or doonas.
7) Don’t sleep with your feet facing the bedroom door.
8) Don’t sleep next to the wall that has the metre box on it.
9) If your front door is in line with a tree or the door of the house opposite, place a Ba Gua mirror above the outside of the door.
10) Never have a Ba Gua mirror in the house. They are far too powerful.
Its no coincidence that some of these tips are just common sense. Youve probably been practising Feng Shui for years without even knowing it!
According to June, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Just a few little changes can make the world of difference. But most solutions are specific to the individual.

All of us have known the beauty that can be created by the use of paper lanterns. However, very few of us have any idea about the numerous usage and effects of using paper lanterns. Chinese have been using paper lanterns from thousands of years and according to them it plays a significant role in feng shui.
Paper lanterns help in increasing fertility:
Millions of women throughout the world face difficulty in getting pregnant. This can be a devastating experience if the wait is really long. Many people do not believe solely on doctors to help them fight the problem with their fertility. Feng shui is believed to help in improving fertility by using red paper lanterns. According to the theory of feng shui, red paper lanterns if hanged on both side of bed can help in getting pregnancy. Many feng shui experts even suggest using a red paper lantern directly over the bed.
Paper lanterns help in bringing positive energy in house
Feng shui is well known as an art that brings positive energy in peoples life. Paper lanterns are believed to play a significant role in bringing a positive energy and harmonica effect in your bedroom and house. Keeping paper lanterns on both or either side of bed is helpful in bringing positive Yang energy into the bedroom and improves the already present chi energy. Bright colored paper lanterns are more effective for harnessing Yang energy.
Paper lanterns help in bringing harmony to marriage
Feng shui uses the energy of polarity and according to it using a pair of same object is very effective. Using a pair of red paper lanterns on sides of bed, both lit simultaneously signify a long and happy marriage. However, for the effect to be more it is important to lit and switch off both the lanterns at the same time so that they work in harmony. This harmony is symbol of marriage and signifies the harmony between husband and wife.
Paper lanterns are very important part of feng shui process. Those who believe in feng shui will definitely know that paper lanterns are not just decorative but a source of positive energy.
In feng shui, dragon is the powerful symbol that gives strong yang energy. It is known as a symbol of prosperity and success. Placing the statue, sculpture or figurine of a dragon (or dragons) in the right direction and place can help to give the best result. Since the dragon is associated with the east therefore according to feng shui placing this mythical animal in the eastern areas of your house will be especially beneficial. This placement will help the family members to become prosperous and successful and bring in other positive effects. Placing the dragon in your bedroom or any room where you are seeking relaxation is not recommended as the dragon is a very active symbol.
Like the dragon, phoenix is also exist only in legends and fairy tales. The Chinese call phoenix the King of all birds. It is also sometimes known as the August Rooster and associated with the tenth Chinese zodiac sign, the Rooster. It is a Chinese symbol of grace, luck and happiness. Feng huang (Chinese word for phoenix) is the guardian of the south, therefore the feng shui masters will suggest that the pictures and statues of phoenix is best when placed in the South areas of your house.
In feng shui the dragon is paired with the phoenix to symbolizes perfect balance of yin and yang. In this case, the dragon is the yang and phoenix is the yin. But if the phoenix is displayed alone without the dragon, then the bird will give the yang energy instead of yin. When these two popular mythical animals are put together they will not only strengthen relationships but also bring back the warmth of togetherness in relationship with the useful energy of the phoenix. The dragon-phoenix combination is one of the most common symbol you can find in the Chinese wedding ceremonies and dresses.
People are wiling to try all sorts of things if they think that it may help them to win the lottery and one lady has suggested that practising the ancient art of feng shui can help.
Eileen Chen who has been a practioner and a fan of of feng shui for over 10 years claims if that applying the same principles can improve ones chances of a lottery win. She began to read up on Bazi which is an ancient form of divination based on birth date and time. She says it can have an effect on a persons luck and character. She believes a combination of Bazi and Feng shui is good.
Mrs Chen was speaking to the Star Online about applying these principles when setting up a new home and applied it to decor, furnishings and layout. and believes it has great impact on her mood, well being, finances and energy and also
Lotto fans may feel like trying anything if it will raise their chances of a big win playing something like Italian SuperEnalotto – and one person has claimed the ancient art of feng shui can help.
Eileen Chen says:-
-If there is no indication in a person’s Bazi that he will strike a lottery and become rich, no amount of feng shui and renovation to the house will make him strike the lottery.
However, the chances of a person who has an indication of wealth in his Bazi to get a windfall is higher when the right time comes if his house feng shui is good,-
Perhaps this is something that could work for us.
Alternative we may just like to continue with our existing ways of seeking that lottery win.
Whatever you do, best of luck and have fun.

Besides the types of mountain and hills, what can you look for when selecting a property in a locality with prosperity and posterity in mind?
You should make close observation on the quality of soil that make up the land in the vicinity of the neighborhood.
In Feng Shui, the natural environment we lived in provides us with life giving energy known as qi. It is the life force that sustains all living things on earth. From the highest peak of the mountain, qi flows along the natural contours of the land and makes it way down the valleys where water is located. It is carried by the wind and gathers at the boundary of water.
When you are looking for a suitable property to make your home, you should observe whether there is any mountain or hill around the area. If there is and it is lush with vegetation, you can tap into the qi that is strong and vitalizing.
But if you would like to know what types of qi is available in the area, you can start by looking at what is below the ground. Qi flows on top and below the ground. Earth is a natural conductor of qi and naturally you can determine the types of qi it carries from observing the soil. The secret is in the color of the soil. To do this, you need to dig about 2 feet into the ground. First, pay attention to the texture of the soil. If it is soft and loamy (with a mixture of clay, sand and some decayed vegetable matter), it indicates positive qi and therefore good quality. Whereas if the soil tends to be rocky and pebbly (with mostly stones), it is not conducive for positive qi to take root. Secondly, by examining the soil’s natural color, we can determine the types of qi it contains. Based on Feng Shui concept, there are five elemental phases of qi namely, wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Each element takes on a color.
The following is a general guide as to what each color means in relation to the soil:-
Green colored soil denotes wood qi and is associated with nobility, benevolence and growth
Red or purple colored soil denotes fire qi and is associated with passion and spirituality
Yellowish colored soil denotes earth qi and is associated with wealth and stability
Pale white colored soil denotes metal qi and is associated with power and authority
Black colored soil denotes water qi and is associated with intelligence and traveling.

Journaling is an excellent tool for dealing emotionally with almost any issue in life. The therapeutic applications of journal writing are endless. But it’s also true that sometimes you feel stuck, unable to make a move in any direction, and not even able to sit down comfortably with your notebook.
For any number of reasons, known and/or unknown, you feel empty. You want to get answers, but you’re paralyzed in some limbo of inaction. You’re uninspired, listless, drifting. You haven’t even cleaned your house for the past month.
Hold it right there. When in doubt, simplify. Could it be that modifying your environment will energize you?
As sentient beings, people are affected by their environments. The flow of energy and the balance of forces in a given environment are studied in the ancient Chinese art of feng shui. Feng shui observes that clutter brings low, confusing, and draining energy into your home, which is detrimental to your own energy and well-being.
Clearing out physical clutter can seem like an overwhelming and tedious process, but when you live and work in a clear, open space, your mind also becomes free and uncluttered.
Your ease and wellbeing have everything to do with your surroundings. Could it be that your ennui is a result of the mess around you?
Here are some ideas to make the task of de-cluttering more palatable.
1. In the room or space where you plan to do your journaling, set a timer for 15 minutes.
2. Turn on some favorite music, open windows if the weather allows, invite a loved one to join in if you wish.
3. Clean one area of the space for the 15 minutes. Throw out as much as possible.
4. Be merciless. If you can’t think of a reason to keep it in a few seconds, get rid of it! Hoarding is a generally unhealthy thing to do.
5. Stop when the timer buzzes. Take a step back and admire your work. Great job!
If you want to, set the timer for another 15 or 30 minutes, and continue. Or just do 15 a day for a while. At some point, the room will be clean and refreshed. Now open your journal and write about the experience.
What did you see and feel when you looked at this room before? What do you see and feel now?
What old baggage, physical or emotional, were you able to throw away while cleaning? What items were the hardest to get rid of? Why?
How do you plan to keep your writing space fresh, inviting, and clean in the future?

In the ancient Chinese culture, it was always believed that staying in harmony with the environment or nature will lead to good life. The system of Feng-shui, which is pronounced as Feng Shway is based on elements of nature, such as wind and water.
The study of Feng-shui reveals two major areas, namely the Land and the Building structure. Study of the energy of nature is aimed at movement of wind and water and thus how the energy moves around the land and the mountains, rivers etc. The second area of focus is the movement of this energy within the structure of the building where we live and work.
The concept of Feng-shui is based on five fundamental or key elements. These are Earth, Wood, Fire, Water and Metal. Also integral to this belief are the twin forces of Yin and Yang. These forces describe the two basic forces of nature and in order to maintain balance, one has to develop harmony between these two forces. The motion of these two explains the dynamic movement of the forces of nature or in other words it explains the change in things. And the important thing is that both are interdependent.

If you have feng shui training, then you know how important it is to put these principles into practice in your home and work spaces. If you haven’t had any classes or training in feng shui but would still like to fill your home with the applied principles of it, then feng shui consultations are probably right up your alley. The great thing about feng shui consulting (as opposed to going out and taking classes on your own) is that it provides you with personalized information, direct from a professional.
Rather than learning the principles and then attempting to apply them, amateur-style, to your own home, an experienced professional can take a look at your living and working spaces and tell you how to optimize them for energy flow. They can also give you pointers on improving other aspects of your life that can be manipulated with feng shui. Does your family fight a lot in the living room? Do you have trouble focusing when working at your desk? Both of these are things that can be improved through the use of feng shui.
You can create warmth in the kitchen, romance in the bedroom, and creative, focused productivity in the office, when you room is optimized for those very things. Of course, it is up to you, as the resident of the space, to maintain these spaces in a way that continues to be supportive of this energy and function. One way to stay on top of things is to do what is sometimes known as maintenance cleaning. All this means is that you clean up as you go along, rather than waiting to do it all in one big swoop. That doesn’t mean you have to clean your house every day (who has time for that?), but it does mean cleaning up after you use or dirty any given space. In the bathroom, for example, wiping down the fixtures and counter after using the sink will keep everything spot-free and shiny. It will also make your bathroom a more welcoming place each time you walk in. That way, when it comes time for the weekend cleaning, you’ll have much less to do and won’t feel overwhelmed with how much there is to clean up.
Sometimes, bringing feng shui into a space can help the inhabitants respect the space and its meaning on a deeper level. If you do have feng shui consulting, be sure to share what you’ve learned with the entire family. Even if they don’t all believe fully in the art, they will hopefully respect your intentions regarding their home, and they will certainly appreciate how wonderful the whole house looks and feels!

The front door to your home is the portal through which everyone steps to enter your living space. In the Feng Shui system of beliefs, the Feng Shui front door color is of the utmost importance. According to Feng Shui principles, the front door is described as the mouth of Chi.
The front door is the way that Chi energy enters your home. Thus the front door is where anyone should start creating a Feng Shui house. In modern society the front door is bypassed by many people as they use a side entrance for instance from the garage where they got out of their car.
So it is not illogical for people to ask whether Feng Shui front door color is still as vitally important as in the past. The answer to this is an empathic yes. Most front doors are centrally placed at the front of a house and normally face the road.
The road is seen as a symbol of water and water is equated with prosperity and wealth. Whatever your front door faces out to, whether a road, an open expanse of nature or the city, it is the portal to the home.
Invite Positive Chi
This makes it the entryway for Chi to enter your home and as such the Feng Shui front door color is highly important. Modern homes are often not built in the traditional way with the best views or expansive open spaces at the front. This changes the concept of where the front door actually should be. This is where yang energy comes into play.
The side of your house that has the most yang energy, meaning the side that faces the best open space or view, should then be considered the front door. This will be the door that should use Feng Shui front door colors to encourage Chi to enter. In Feng Shui the most auspicious Feng Shui front door colors are red and purple as both are bold and fiery colors. There are several reasons why everyone should make a point of entering their homes through the front door.
As said in Feng Shui the front door is the portal and as such you should use that door. When you enter your home through the front door you bring with you a fresh flow of Chi. This means you create an entryway for wealth and prosperity to come into your home with you. Another reason the Feng Shui front door colors are so important is that fiery colors are warm and life giving. It is this vibrant energy force that should be invited into the home at each and every opportunity.
