Much has been written about water in the scope of Feng Shui influences and yet the specific applications for water still elude the general public. This is because we have many theories in the Xuan Kong Flying Star School which need to be learned through actual training. Otherwise, someone might assume that a water feature, like a fountain or pond, is always a good asset to a property, which is actually not the case.

One of the most gratifying aspects of my work as a spiritual psychotherapist is guiding couples to optimize joy and laughter in their relationships. When our mind is de-cluttered, the joy of our Spirit arises naturally, effortlessly. In Feng Shui, the Fire Element rules relationships and it’s no surprise that joy is at the heart of the Fire Element. Think about what attracted you initially to your beloved.

Male Fertility Has Support in Feng Shui. In past articles and in my books, I have written about some Feng Shui circumstances which can affect fertility, with the assumption and emphasis on the woman’s role. However, there are some things a man can do to increase his own fertility. In the East-West School of Feng Shui (Ba Zhai), each person has preferred and less-preferred personal directions based on their personal Kua.

Feng Shui addresses non-obvious relationship scenarios that you have with your own physical space. Where you live and where you work teems with energy, which some people call “qi.” This energy, therefore, is supporting you or undermining you. One goal in Feng Shui is to enhance the energy which already supports you. It may also diminish the energy which could be sabotaging you.

The practice of Feng Shui is often referred to as a system for living in “harmony with nature.” For me, this explanation conjures up images of fields and forests, when in fact most of us are living and working indoors. Does this mean you must spend more time outdoors to achieve the kind of balance Feng Shui adherents are referring to? Does this mean that apartment dwellers and workaholics cannot enjoy good Feng Shui? Absolutely not!

A lot of emphasis has been made in educating the public about what constitutes a good or bad feng shui house. But once the house is selected, there are feng shui guidelines for how and when to make the move itself. Before the move, the house must be thoroughly cleaned (all surfaces). It is especially good if new paint, carpeting, and tiling are changed, as well as window treatments.
