In order for a home or apartment to feel “in balance” and attract health, wealth, love and happiness for its inhabitants, the chi must be in proper balance or alignment with the people in the house and the space.
Feng Shui offers three basic methods to adjust chi. Any of the cures we employ is an offshoot of one of these three methods. An intuitive approach to Feng Shui will help you determine which is the best method to use for a given situation.
1. Connecting Chi - This can be used to correct “missing” areas of homes or raises the chi in an area with low chi. A hollow pole in the ground with a light on top will draw chi out from deep below the earth. To cure a missing area, you may lay a brick or stone walkway connecting the house to a nearby shed, detached garage or other building.
2. Balancing chi - If the land has an asymmetrical or awkward layout, this can lead to unbalanced chi. To balance the site, add a structural or natural addition -- such as a gazebo, body of water, or heavy stones.
3. Outstanding chi - This method is used to channel the flow of chi, for instance, in a home where chi rushes in and out too quickly because of parallel front and back doors. Wind chimes or crystals can disperse and slow chi. On the other hand, a mirror used to open a closed-in space is also a form of outstanding chi.
