In the past few weeks, I’ve come across a lot of women, both young and middle aged who have complained of difficulty in conceiving. In almost all the cases, the women were healthy and there was no real issue the doctor saw as to why they couldn’t get pregnant. My first reaction when I hear this is what’s going on with the energy in their home.
I know at first read, it sounds like “new age” hoopla. I get it, I used to think the same thing too. Until I studied, real, authentic, classical feng shui for 2 years. After realizing the impact energy has on ourselves, homes, health, people around us and the world at large, I decided to take this energy thing more seriously. I went back and feng shui’d every single home I ever lived in to see if my experiences matched what the energy indicated, and sure enough it did. Eight years, and hundreds of clients later, real feng shui, when done correctly works.
Here’s the thing about energy and how much of an impact it has on us… Have you ever been on the phone with someone and they’re dumping and unloading all their problems and dramas on you and by the end of the call, they feel amazing and you end up feeling like crap? Yup, me too! If energy can affect us that easily over the phone and worse in person when we’re confronted by someone who drains us or exhausts us. Now imagine what can happen in a home that you spend most of your time in day after day, month after month, year after year?
Every single home, based on the direction it faces, the move in date and the occupant’s birthdays, has what we call a flying stars chart. It’s basically a natal chart of your home and it indicates how people will be affected with money, relationships and health. If you take it a step further, based on the layout of the home, the positioning, orientation of furniture, location of kitchen, stove, bathrooms, etc., you can see how each person will be affected individually and what aspect of their life it will play out in.
For example, if you moved into an East facing home, within the degrees of 67.6-82.5, after February of 2004, and you’re sleeping with your head to the South, your stove is located in the South sector of your kitchen, you would be activating the “trouble maker” energy. The “trouble maker” energy is a feminine energy, which means it can indicate issues with fertility, reproductive organs, miscarriages, difficulty conceiving, depression, weight gain, mid-section of the body issues and monthly “female issues.” Basically, a normally healthy female sleeping to this energy or using a stove that is activating this energy would experience health issues affecting the reproductive organs, including fertility. A doctor could look at his woman and say there are no issues but if she’s trying to conceive in a home that has this energy, that is where the problem would ensue.
So what do you do? If you don’t know what the culprit in your house is and you’re not in a situation to hire a feng shui expert, then you would have to use your context clues. If you or your partner are not sleeping well, this is a first sign that something is amiss. Try moving your bed in a direction that feels better for both of you and give it 3 months. You might have to move the bed a couple of times until you find that right direction. Once sleep improves, then you will know you’re on the right track. If for example, it’s a front door or a stove that is activating this energy, that will be harder for a layman to identify. In this case, I highly recommend consulting an expert so you can cover all of your bases.
Ensuring your home has good energy, will not only benefit your health, your relationship and your finances but you’ll find everyday tasks easier to complete, people being more helpful, exchanges at the stores are more amicable and life in general easier to deal with.
