Mirrors in Feng Shui

Mirrors are not necessary for good Feng Shui. They are sometimes recommended because they can make a wall or door “energetically disappear.” A mirror also pushes the energy back, which is why you should avoid a mirror facing the main door. It is good to have a mirror outside the bathroom door because it pushes the energy away from entering the bathroom and prevents the energy from going down the drain.

Feng Shui Tips for a Bed Facing the Door

Your bed should not be aligned with any door, whether it be the bathroom door, bedroom door, or closet door. You want to create an invisible division between the bathroom and the bedroom once you move your bed to the best place possible. Keep all doors closed most of the time. Strengthen the bedroom door and weaken the bathroom door. This could be with a color choice. Use a color on the bedroom door that will attract more energy than the bathroom door. A small mirror could be placed on the bathroom door. Keep the bathroom energy fresh with candles, essential oil diffusers or mists or art to create a sense of beauty. You can also “ground” the energy near the toilet  in many ways, such as taking a big bowl containing river rocks or crystals and placing it on a small shelf above the toilet. You could also install a bigger bathroom shelf unit on the wall above the toilet and fill it up with spa-related items.

Feng Shui of a Bathroom Over the Main Door

It is important to take care of the good feng shui of a bathroom over the main door. Make sure the space is clean and clutter-free before applying any feng shui cures and remedies. Focus on the bathroom floor to separate the upper bathroom and the main entrance below it. Have deep color flooring or have a good quality rug in the same colors. Keep the bathroom door closed at all times and good lighting in the main entry, such as a crystal chandelier. This will add to the division between the two spaces. Use beautiful wall paper with mostly vertical movement/stripes, tall lamps on a console table, or a tall mirror in the main entrance to energetically push up the energy of the upper bathroom.

Feng Shui Wealth Area in the Bathroom

The Feng Shui Money area is in the Southeast area of your home. The Feng Shui element is wood, so do not place metal or fire element objects and colors in this area. You want to strengthen the wood with more wood, water, or earth elements. Colors such as brown, green, blue, black, light beige, sandy, or a very light yellow are good choices. 8 stalks of Lucky Bamboo are considered a good feng shui cure for Wealth and Abundance. You can use a bowl of feng shui crystals, such as a combination of amethyst, hematite, citrine, rose quartz, and others for a rich and energizing feng shui wealth cure. Decorate with a representation of what Wealth means to you. You can use photos, art, or fresh flowers. Create a luxurious, spa like feel in your bathroom and keep the space clutter-free and clean. Have good quality air and good light. Finally, always keep the toilet seat down to limit the common feng shui concern with the bathroom as the space with the largest leakage of energy.

October is Car Care Month

October is car care month so make sure to clean your vehicle and prepare it for the upcoming cold weather.

  • Interior. Public vacuums at the car wash are designed for rugged action and endurance, so do not use them. It could scratch or damage any upholstery in a modern car. Use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment at home.
  • Car Polish. If you polish your car in the sun it will dry too fast and cause streaks. The best polishing is done in the shade and at 59-68 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Rims. Do not use water to clean brake dust or your rims will rust. Use a special wheel cleaner.
  • Fly-Specks. Insect stains can attack the paint and cause permanent damage. Remove them as quickly as possible. Use a soft wash cloth with water or a wet paper towel and place them on the “buggy” surface for 15 minutes. You may need to use a spray bottle to soak them again. Carefully wipe away everything on the vehicle.
