Shui with Gill Hale :
in the Home
"Wherever we live, in the town or the
country, we can arrange our immediate environment so that we receive maximum
support. Some houses instinctively "feel" right and a Luo Pan reading will
usually confirm this. Other homes may not, and sometimes external influences
can adversely affect beneficial energy." (From The Practical Encyclopedia
of Feng Shui)
A skilled consultant will be able to
tune in to the energy of your home and to measure the affect of external
influences upon it. Using a range of techniques it will be possible to make
adjustments to your home in order to help it support you in creating the
life you want.
TEN FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. "I read a book and it says ……"
With almost two hundred books on
the market, if you read more than one you will be confused. Books can
only ever make generalisations because each case is unique. Feng Shui
depends on many factors –exterior environment, interior layout,
furnishings, colour, and the people who live or work there. Other
factors can only be detected with specialist skills or equipment. There
are different approaches to Feng Shui, depending on where someone was
trained or the scope of the book. The study of Feng Shui takes many
years and some features of the subject are impossible to put into a book
since they depend on detailed analysis of an individual site.
"I bought a Feng Shui mirror –
where shall I put it?"
Nowhere, unless you had a
specific reason for buying it and you know what to do with it. The
symbols make Feng Shui mirrors act like talismen. Hung in the wrong
place they will deflect positive energy as well as the negative kind you
were hoping to deflect. Never place a Feng Shui mirror inside your home
or you will draw negative energy inside.
3. "I’d like a pond but someone
told me not to have water behind your house"
Remember that Feng Shui
originated in an agricultural community thousands of years ago. Garden
ponds were not an issue then, but rivers gushing down mountains were. If
your house is lower than a river or a lake, the chances are that you
will be flooded out if it rains a lot. Where you place the pond is
important in terms of balancing the elements around your home and the
location depends entirely on each house and its environment.
4. "What colour shall I paint my
Colours are vibrations and
particular vibrations have different effects on different people. The
use of a colour in one room, may have a totally different effect in
another. Colour is also used in Feng Shui to create a balance of the
elements and correct negative influences. Each case will be different.
- "Is there a reason I have felt
unwell since I moved?"
If your sleeping habits suddenly
change when you move, or if you grow increasingly unwell the chances are
that you may be sleeping over disturbed energy. Disruption of natural
vibrations in the earth affect us, particularly in the bedroom since we
spend several hours there a day. The effects of sleeping over a fault
can manifest themselves in a change in sleeping patterns, or in serious
illnesses like cancer and ME. Faults can easily be discovered through
6. "I don’t sleep well. Is there a
Disturbed sleep may be due to a
number of factors as suggested above. The location of the room within
the building and what we surround ourselves with inside the bedroom are
two further factors.
- "Our relationship has stagnated –
can Feng Shui help?"
If your partner is a serial
bigamist probably not, but there are few situations which cannot be
improved using Feng Shui techniques.
8. "Our home feels great, but we
still have problems, why is this?"
Most of us spend several hours a
day at work. Problems at work can spill over into the home and vice
versa. We all need to pay attention to our working environments as well
as those at home. Even though we may have little control over our
surroundings at work, there are still subtle changes which can be
achieved within our own working space which can deflect some of the
negative energies surrounding us.
9. "Something feels odd here and I
can’t work it out.."
Houses retain an energy imprint
of those who lived there and of events which have happened there. In the
East, no one would dream of moving into a home before it had been
checked out by someone with the knowledge to read the energy. Ceremonies
to clear the energy of past occupants and blessing ceremonies to ensure
the fortunes of the new ones are commonplace.
10. "Are there houses which will
never be right?"
Unfortunately yes. Interestingly,
the occupants of such houses always intuitively know this and
confirmation of the fact and temporary corrections usually give them the
energy to move on. It is usually possible to use Feng Shui techniques to
improve any situation.
