How to Benefit from Feng Shui to Live a Healthy and Long Life

If you browse through the internet pages related to Feng Shui you will find plenty of details that will describe items that can bring you love, wealth and prosperity. But most of the times people forget to consider that there is another aspect of their life without which they cannot enjoy all the rest: health.

This article will point out at you some things that you should know when you plan to implement Feng Shui within the comfort of your home. They should be well taken care of because according to them you will have or not a healthy and long life.

* One bad Feng Shui that needs to be kept away from your living space is the poison arrow. This one is the representation of any type of pointed and sharp object. You can as well go further and imagine every other thing that resembles to the form of an arrow. Some of them can be as follows: long slender trees (the same format that pine trees have), the edge of the roof, lampposts and so on. All these do not need to point towards your home because they can create health issues for the inhabitants of the house. Another bad thing: they can bring bad luck to your household.

* Kitchen and bathroom are two spaces of the house that can influence the state of your health when using Feng Shui. For a good Feng Shui, your kitchen needs to be located in the auspicious direction that belongs to you and the best way to reach to it is by calculating it according to your birth date. If the home place is populated by other family members, make sure to locate the kitchen in accordance to the Kua numbers of males or females who live in the house.

* When it comes to the space of your bedroom, Feng Shui indicates that it is bad for your health to furnish this place with antique pieces of furniture. They are loaded with the bad energy and vibes of those people who have previously owned it. In this way, the bad energy can transmit to you at the moment when your body is in complete relaxation while sleeping. Thus it is bad for the state of your health.

* A good Feng Shui is represented by bird cranes because they stand for immortality and peace. They can be as well placed in the space of your garden.
