Protect Your Health, Wealth and Family by Planting Trees

Feng Shui TreesAs Spring approaches, it's a good time to consider planting trees on your property to enhance your home's Feng Shui.

Trees protect us literally, from sunlight and inauspicious views, and in a spiritual sense, offer a feeling of protection. Trees beautify an area, attract other life to our property (such as birds who may build their nests there), and -- planted in the backyard -- provide a sense of support for you and your family.

Trees begin with their roots deep underground and stretch upward toward the sky, linking Heaven and Earth in Black Sect Feng Shui. 

Like most aspects of Feng Shui, trees can be good or bad depending on their location, size and overall health. Large, old trees that are still healthy offer a particular sense of security and comfort.

When Trees Offer Good Feng Shui

Plant trees to block against negative influences and sharp arrows of chi (such as from roof lines, tall buildings or T-intersections) pointed at your property.

Lush trees around your home signal health and prosperity. If trees suddenly die, it could indicate coming misfortune.

A large tree on the rear of your property provides a feeling of protection.

Trees located near your entrance -- but not so close that they block flow of chi and create a feeling of oppression -- create a sense of protection, as if the trees are guarding your home. Plant trees on your front lawn in symmetrical groups of three, six or nine trees, since these number combinations have strong positive properties. 

When Trees “Block” You

A tree that is too close to your entryway may create a feeling of oppression or being blocked. The tree should not be closer than twice the tallest residents' height. Use your instincts; does your doorway feel blocked or does the tree offer a sense of protection?

Trees planted on the path to your doorway may create a sense of narrowing opportunities. Trim these trees to produce the sense that your path widens, increasing opportunities and broadening your influence as you leave your home.

Overgrown trees in your backyard that touch your house or block windows could be draining good chi from your living space. Cut them back.

Stumps resulting from trees that have been cut down represent dead and blocked energy. Adorn them with ivy to reduce this negative influence and promote a feeling of new growth. You may also place a beautiful green potted plant on the stump.

How Do Your Trees Make You Feel?

With planting season approaching, assess how the trees on your property have been affecting your life.

Do you feel blocked in certain areas? Does your family feel safe and secure in your home? Are your family members healthy and full of life, or have you been plagued by medical problems recently?

The answers to these questions will provide insight into how to modify the trees on your property to attract health, wealth and prosperity.
